General Discussions rules

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

The wiki's Discussions page is for talking about Roblox itself and other Roblox-related topics. Its rules may be viewed on the Discussions Guidelines page, or additionally with more details below:

  1. Be respectful and friendly to other users. Do not swear or use inappropriate/vulgar language in any context.
    1. Posts should not call out, shame, accuse, or hurt other users. Discrimination is not tolerated.
    2. While constructive debates are permitted, arguments and flamewars will be removed, and their participants subject to moderation.
    3. Censoring any inappropriate/vulgar language is still inappropriate/vulgar language, and may not be used.
  2. Please check the Lists of Prohibited & Limited Topics before making posts.
  3. Spamming, trolling, or other disruptive behavior is not permitted.
  4. Off-topic, spammy, or low-effort posts of any kind will be removed. Posts should encourage and welcome discussion.
    1. Polls should have an open free format; they should not have a "correct" answer or imply a "wrong" or "bad" answer.
  5. Do not repost threads, post threads similar to threads posted recently, or necropost (post on old, dead threads).
  6. No self-advertisement or self-promotion. Sharing your own creations cannot be used to directly promote yourself.
  7. Creations that are not yours must credit the source (with a link) and explicitly allow reposting. Do not claim others' creations as your own.
    1. If there is not an explicit statement from the original creator that sharing & reposting is allowed, the creation is assumed to not allow reposting, and should not be shared.
    2. "Google Images," "Pinterest" or similar are not credits to a source. If you cannot find the original posting of the work, you may not share it.
  8. If a topic has a megathread for it, you must use the megathread. (Links to all megathreads are in the next section)
  9. Posts must be in understandable English.

Additionally, all applicable rules for the main wiki apply to Discussions. The Discussions forum is still part of Roblox Wiki, and user conduct, account, age, and block policies are particularly all in effect on Discussions. Most importantly:

  • You must be 13 years of age or older to have an account on Fandom.
  • Do not impersonate others. If you claim to be a notable or otherwise known person in the Roblox community, you will be asked to verify your identity.
  • Assume good faith.
  • Multiple accounts may not be used maliciously or to evade a block. A block is a ban on you, not your account.

If you see a post that you believe breaks the rules, you should report it and NOT interact with it. There are three optimal ways of reporting:

  • Use the "Report Post" button on the tools dropdown on the violating post
  • Go to the talk page of a wiki staff member and let them know by linking the offending post and naming the account
  • Letting a wiki staff member know on our Discord Server

Do NOT report by mentioning (@username) a staff member on Discussions. This is very unlikely to have any action done, as staff members are not notified outside of Fandom nor is it clear which post breaks the rules. Please use one of the above methods to report.
Additionally, do not minimod (i.e. do not act like a staff member and call out someone for breaking rules, tell them they're breaking rules, saying they're going to be reported, etc.) This inconveniences wiki staff and causes more problems than solving them; please let wiki staff handle these types of issues.

List of prohibited or limited topics on Discussions

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

Certain topics are either disallowed entirely, or only allowed under certain circumstances;

Prohibited topics

The following topics may not take place on Discussions whatsoever:

  • Posts that seem to act as if this is an official Roblox website/that we are Roblox employees
  • Complaining about bans, things that got past moderation that shouldn't have
  • Discussing, complaining about, or disputing blocks (bans) from other wikis on Fandom
  • Exploiting/"hacking"
  • Fearmongering (e.g. warning about "hacking" events)
  • Showing/discussing bots found in experiences/on the Roblox website
  • Asking about getting promotional codes for Roblox or specific experiences
    • Conversations about codes as a feature are okay
  • Rants, brigading, strikes, etc.
  • Trading offers and discussions about making trading offers
    • Both for trading limiteds AND in-game trading; "cross-trading" will result in a block
  • Negative posts about specific players on Roblox
    • e.g. telling people to report a certain user, "Roblox cringe" posts, complaining about groups or stereotypes of players (such as "slenders")
  • Posts trying to campaign for a place/experience/group to get closed, deleted, raided, etc.
  • Extremely vague development questions (e.g. "how do I script?")
  • Asking for free art/renders/edits of your character or similar
  • Self advertisement/promotion, recruitment, etc
  • Giveaways, raffles, self-hosted contests
  • Game threads
  • Heavy topics and personal issues that cannot safely be discussed or should not be discussed on a site about Roblox
Limited topics

The following topics may only take place on Discussions if the post is constructive, high-effort, and encourages legitimate discussion:

  • Online daters (ODers)/ODing
    • Not for accusing a place of encouraging ODing or accusing certain players of ODing - violates prohibited topics.
  • Returning removed features like Tickets, Guests, etc.
  • Common Roblox bugs/glitches
  • Roblox moderation (in general)

Talking about topics related to editing the Roblox Wiki, or the policies and staff of Roblox Wiki, is intended for the forum, but will not totally be disallowed on Discussions. Additionally, off-topic discussions are not completely prohibited, but must be worthwhile and constructive to not be removed. For more free-form off-topic conversations with the community of Roblox Wiki, please join our Discord server.

Megathreads

We have provided Megathreads for these topics (linked) to discuss or post about the following topics:

Topics that belong in these posts should generally not have separate threads made about them.

General comment rules

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

General rules must be followed on all comment pages. Comments may be disabled on a page if comment abuse becomes frequent.

  • All of the user conduct policies apply to the comments
  • Comments should pertain to the article's topic or the article itself. Posting silly comments like "first!", "lol", "OMG! I got banned!", "ODers suck!", and "I edited the page" do not promote discussion and should not be posted.
  • Comments should not contain any image unless it is being used to troubleshoot page issues. The wiki is not the place to post a picture of your Roblox ban.
  • Comments should not personally attack any user, including the person the article is about

General forum rules

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

The wiki's forum is for discussing editing the Roblox Wiki and site management.

Regardless of what forum an editor is posting on, general rules must be followed. Posts or threads that do not meet these rules may be closed.

  • All of the user conduct policies apply to the forums
  • Threads must be posted in the appropriate forum. Each forum has a description of what types of threads are allowed.
  • While we encourage editors to express themselves, swearing is strictly prohibited. The Roblox Wikia is a kid-friendly environment.
  • Be nice and treat everyone with respect. People from all around the world read and edit this wiki. Like any other collaborative project, not everyone will agree all the time. Keep discussions civil and be open minded about differing opinions. We're all here because we love the same topic. Purposefully starting flame wars or personally attacking editors will result in moderation action.


Old or resolved threads and comments should not be posted on

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

Necroposting/Necrobumping is the act of posting on an old or resolved thread or comment stream. If you find something to be useful in an old forum post, give kudos to the person instead of posting a comment like "thank you!". Check before you post! If it was already replied to by an administrator and resolved and/or the last replied date is older than one month, don't post or respond! Your comment may be deleted, the thread closed, and additional moderation actions taken.
