Fortnite Wiki

Rules and responsibilities that apply to both editors/staff to follow.

We want to give our editors as much leeway as they deserve. We will make an attempt to give warnings where we see suitable for a user to improve and not make the same mistake twice. In some instances, warning will not be granted.

Note: Staff at their discretion may choose to lower or increase the severity of a punishment.

April 2021 Changes

  • Removed lengthy paragraphs and condensed into tables with punishments.

Editing

  • To prevent drama and uncertainty around editing we have a Editing Tips & Guidelines page that we strongly recommend to editors and staff.
  • To keep our site as authentic as possible, we are seeking fact over opinion. If you state "The batman skin is the best skin in the game" it becomes an opinion. Fact and opinion also play a role in fiction vs non fiction. We don't want theories about a page, we want facts.
  • If you collect information from external websites, don't plagiarize others written words. Please refrain from doing so and at least if you do use an external websites sources, either link it or rewrite that information into your own words.

Images

Acceptable images must be Fortnite related. Here are some examples:

  • Backgrounds
  • Transparent images
  • Icons

Videos

Acceptable videos must be Fortnite related. Here are some examples:

  • Fortnite Official Trailers (Created by Epic)
    • If you believe there should be an exception, contact Content Mod +

Audio

Acceptable Audio must be Fortnite Related.

  • Fortnite Lobby Music Audio.
  • Emote Audio
  • Item Audio (Shooting, Pullout, etc.)
    • If you believe there should be an exception, contact Content Mod +

Grinding Edits When editing on the Fortnite Wiki, we do not care about the number of edits you have created. We are more impressed by users who develop their ideas and make quality edits. Grinding edits is an issue to our Achievement Leaderboards.

Example of Grinding Edits:

  • You edit a page just to add a period to the end of the sentence. But then you edit the same page or another page again only to capitalize 1 letter. It could be that you're looking out for grammar truthfully. If you're going to edit pages, take the time to edit it thoroughly and look for all mistakes or improvements.
  • Removing content. Saving. Then adding the same or similar content again.

Advice to avoid being seen as an edit grinder:

  • Do not stretch adding content to pages, unless you have to.
  • If you don't think that your edit will make a huge difference, don't make that edit.

Any user who evades a block by using a VPN or external plugin will be permanently blocked.

While it is most likely impossible to keep things peaceful at all times, we'd like it for users to be civil and open-minded about differing opinions.If you'd ever like to give feedback to someones thread/post please have it constructive instead of destructive.

Rule Breakers 1) Please do not post about rule-breakers, such as vandals, in order to report them to staff. Especially don't mention them. They will see that it is annoying you, and will likely be encouraged to continue.

2) In addition, do not post about ongoing situations of spammers or vandals (An example being post spamming, upvote spaming) as the perpetrator will just have more fun in doing it more. Report all offenses to a Fortnite Wiki Staff, on their user wall.

Fortnite Currency Trading for Accounts, Cosmetics (gifting) or asking/selling/buying Fortnite/IRL currency is not allowed. In rare occasions, Fortnite Wiki Staff may create an Event for you to be Gifted Fortnite Cosmetics.
