By being a part of the Five Nights at Freddy's community, you must agree and accept the rules and guidelines below.

Note

  • If you want to see what warnings you have, copy and paste the following URL into your url bar: https://freddy-fazbears-pizza.fandom.com/wiki/User:/Warnings
    • Note that a {{USERNAME}} template is used here to show your username.
  • You are responsible for all actions your account takes. If your account activity results in a ban, excuses such as "My little sibling got on my computer and did stuff," or "My friend was dared to use my account for shenanigans," are not going to overturn your ban.
    • There is, of course, an exception if you are hacked. If you believe you were hacked, contact Fandom support via Special:Contact and have them report the results to us.

General Rules

  • Do not vandalize anything on the wiki.
  • Do not spam anywhere on the wiki.
    • This includes, but is not limited to, posting gibberish, random letters, comments that have nothing to do with the topic that is being commented on, chain messages, "copypastas," and huge blocks of text.
  • Do not edit other users' profiles.
  • Do not harass or bully other users.
    • Do not flamebait either.
      • Responding to flamebait with harassment will result in a warning to both parties.
  • Do not advertise.
  • Do not feed the trolls, report them immediately. Interacting with trolls only encourages them.
  • No explicit sexual material or gore.
  • No excessive swearing.
    • The use of racial, homophobic and sexist slurs will not be tolerated.
  • Use of hate/terrorist group language and imagery will not be tolerated.
  • No alt/sock puppet accounts are allowed and should be reported immediately.
  • Non-admin users should not give warnings to other users. Friendly advice and tips are one thing, but only admins will give out warnings.
  • Do not remove admin warnings and block messages from your message wall; such actions will extend your ban.
  • Do not create a Message Wall Greeting for yourself, this is only for admins.
  • Do not have gender debates in blogs or forum posts. Any gender debates will result in an automatic warning or a ban.
  • Roleplaying is no longer accepted on this wiki. RPs will be issued an initial warning and directed to other options to turn to for your roleplaying needs. Further attempts will result in a ban.
  • Do not use Zalgo text or other "corrupted" texts.
  • Users found to be "warring" with other wikis (such as trolling, spamming, or vandalizing them) in the name of this wiki will be given less leniency depending on the severity of their behavior. In such instances, the minimum punishment for this kind of behavior will be a one week ban.

Uploading Files

  • Do not upload anything that is not going to be used in a mainspace article.
    • This includes fan art and other similar works.
      • Of special note, LadyFiszi and Claudia Schröder are fan artists who work in official capacity on FNaF properties. The only artwork of theirs that should be uploaded is those from official sources.
    • If you want to post such things, upload your image to Imgur or Photobucket first, then paste the direct image link into where you want the image to show up.
  • Make sure file names are relevant to the image.
    • For example, do not upload with names such as "image.png" or "1sdfkbaaw345ne4r.jpg" as this can make editing difficult.
  • Do not upload duplicate files.
  • Do not upload low-quality files.
    • This includes screencaps of gameplay videos as in-game screenshots are much cleaner.
  • Do not upload files with Let's Player's faces on them.
  • To prevent backlash, please upload your own VR/AR character model renders rather than taking someone else's from any other websites (e.g: DeviantArt and other FANDOM wikis) unless given permission.

Editing Rules and Guidelines

For more editing guidelines, see Manual of Style.
  • Read each article in its entirety before editing.
  • Do try to be as accurate as possible when editing articles.
  • Do your best to use proper grammar.
  • Remain objective - use "the player," not "you."
  • Do your best to keep any abbreviations that may be used consistent. Commonly used abbreviations are as follows:
  • Do not make the articles redundant.
  • Do not add speculation and/or theories to articles.
  • When making new articles, make sure the subject does not already have a page and is not already covered elsewhere.
    • Sometimes it may seem like something needs a page when in reality, it doesn't contribute a lot a information. In these cases, these tend to be added to other related pages, such as Shamrock Freddy links to the Holiday Animatronics. In this case, it is because Shamrock Freddy is basically a reskinned Freddy Fazbear who doesn't contribute anything to game lore outside of a mere animatronic skin and fun appearance in Special Delivery.
    • Do not rename or redirect pages. If one needs renaming, ask an admin.
      • This also applies to pages that are marked for deletion.
  • Do not create unnecessary/spam articles.
    • If you want to theorize about the story, a character, or anything of the sort, create a blog or forum post instead.
  • Do not add unnecessary categories to pages - including your profile, blog posts, etc.
  • If the article's information, upon being added, was caught plagiarized off of another wiki, this kind of edit will be immediately reverted.
  • Do not change the articles' formats without the admin's permission. For example, it is very needless to change the heading sections (e.g: changing from "Physical Appearance" to "Characteristic Description") or modifying the tables (including images, headings, etc) as they look perfectly fine as they were unless there is indeed a worth of changing which should be discussed with the administrators first. Whoever gets caught constantly repeating this issue no matter how many times without the admin team's knowledge will receive a warning without hesitation. Consequences will be given if the warning was defied.

Forum Rules and Guidelines

  • All general rules apply to the forums.
  • If there is an issue, please contact an admin as soon as possible.
    • Avoid adding to a problematic situation by arguing, making a big deal out of it, calling names, and so forth. Doing so may land you in trouble as well.
  • There is a limit of 250 posts per thread. Threads are usually closed after it is noticed that they have reached or surpassed this limit.
    • Do not fight over who gets to make the next thread in a series of threads, should the previous ones be closed. Anyone can create the next thread.

General Ban Guidelines

Vandalism will land you an instant permanent ban.

  • First Offense: Warning
  • Second Offense: 3 day ban.
  • Third Offense: 1 week ban.
  • Fourth Offense: 2 week ban.
  • Fifth Offense: 1 month.
  • Sixth Offense: Infinite ban.
  • In some cases, the offense may be so serious that warnings and lighter bans may be skipped and the offending user may be given a heavier ban. Admins give bans at their discretion but follow these ban guidelines.
    • It should also be noted that, should the majority of an account's activity be nothing more than spam, advertising, or some other form of disruptive behavior, admins reserve the right to give an infinite ban without warning as the account is clearly only here to be disruptive.
    • Inter-wiki warring carries a minimum punishment of a one week ban with the severity of the offense constituting more drastic bans. An infinite ban may be implemented in the case of multiple offenses or if a user's behavior on the targeted wiki is just that bad.
