RW:NOTABLE

It is not possible to maintain a good average article quality with an unlimited number of articles because each article added to the wiki requires maintenance and copy editing work and editors are a scarce resource. A notability policy is necessary to establish what topics can be covered in articles on the wiki.

Articles should usually only be about one topic. Notability is determined by consensus: a topic is considered notable if there is consensus that it is notable and not notable if there is consensus that it is not notable.

When there is no consensus on a subject's notability, it is not considered notable and may not be covered in this wiki, unless it meets one of the following criteria:

Article Notability criteria
Player
  • Is the owner/creator of a notable game (at least 1,000,000 place visits) OR
  • Is a major credited contributor/co-developer of a notable game OR
  • Is a minor credited contributor/co-developer of 2-3 notable games OR
  • Is the owner of a single-developer group that houses a notable game (at least 1,000,000 place visits) OR

Important event related to Roblox (such events do not necessarily need to be organized by Roblox)

The notability policy does not apply to pages that are not in content namespaces. Notability determines whether a topic can be suitable for a stand-alone article, not whether it can be covered in an article about a broader topic.


All material must be verifiable

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

Readers and editors must be able to check the information in articles. The preferred way to achieve this is by supporting material in articles with inline citations, often placed at the end of a sentence or paragraph.

Inline citations are required for the following:

  • Direct quotations
  • Disputed or challenged statements
  • Statements that are likely to be challenged
  • Contentious material about players, places, and groups

For other material, citations are not required, but they are strongly recommended unless everyone agrees that the material is obvious.

The Roblox Wiki has a list of credible sources that should be preferred when supporting a statement. Sources that are credible and independent of the topic are preferred, but citing other sources is permitted when nothing better is available.


All material must be neutral

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

Material located in content namespaces must be written from a neutral point of view. When there are multiple views that have been published on a topic, they must be represented proportionately and without editorial bias. Opinions that are not verifiable can be presented by quoting significant proponents but they must not be presented as facts. If different sources make conflicting assertions, the assertions should be presented by quoting the sources instead of being presented as facts.



Pages will sometimes be deleted

The following is a guideline on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

Pages may be deleted when they do not fit the inclusion criteria. For pages in content namespaces, the inclusion criteria is notability of the topic. In other namespaces, different criteria apply:

  • Files may be deleted if they are not useful or relevant to the project or if they constitute a copyright violation.
  • User and blog pages may be deleted on the request of their author unless they contain content that is useful for the project.
  • Project pages may be deleted if they are not about the project or if they are obsolete.
  • Templates may be deleted if they are unused and unlikely to be used in the future.

In addition to the above criteria, any page may be deleted if there is community consensus to delete it. Administrators may delete pages for cleaning up or maintenance. Furthermore, instead of being deleted, pages that do not meet the inclusion criteria but have useful content can be moved, without leaving a redirect, to a subpage of the page of the user who created them or was the major contributor. Like other pages on this wiki, user pages are not owned by any user. A user may put pages about non-notable subjects in subpages as long as they are related to Roblox.


Articles should meet our style standards

The following is a guideline on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

All articles should meet the base standards defined by our Manual of Style. An article with just one or two sentences is not sufficient and may be deleted.

Upon publishing, an article should:

  • follow the standard article structure defined in our Manual of Style
  • have an infobox that is fully filled, if an applicable infobox exists
  • have a decent amount of information on the subject
  • include a relevant image


Files must have descriptive names

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

All files uploaded to the wiki should have a descriptive name. Roblox's assigned name for the image, such as 4ed79d33416d50f085c76ba703f4e79b are considered non-descriptive and will be renamed or deleted.


Incomplete pages & drafts must be located in a userspace

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

You may create article drafts in your user space (User:user/Title), and then ask a wiki administrator or content moderator to move it for you when the page is finalized.

Article drafts not located in a user space, or otherwise articles deemed insufficiently complete, will be deleted.


Personal information about Robloxians may be restricted

The following is a policy on the Roblox Wiki.

Back to top

If you believe leaked personal or confidential information has been divulged in a wiki article, please immediately contact a wiki staff member and link to the revision(s) in question.

As many Robloxians may not wish to have their real-life personal details associated with their Roblox accounts, some personal information may be barred from being included on a wiki page. Personal information should only be posted if it is generally known by the Roblox community.

Allowed personal details

Back to top

Social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, etc.) may be allowed to be posted if that account is directly linked on or linked to their Roblox profile page. First names and surnames may be posted if, and only if, included in the bio, username, handle, or in a public post/message of an allowed social media profile.

Real-life images of developers are subject to restrictions. Photos of developers will only be allowed if all of these requirements are met:

  1. The player is a legal adult (18 years or older)
  2. The photo was posted by the player on a public social media outlet that is linked with that player's Roblox account
  3. The image source is credited on the file page. If that photo is removed from the social media outlet, it shall be removed from the wiki.

Other personal details should be assumed to remain confidential unless allowed an exception from a wiki administrator (under certain situations). Posting of a player's physical location (such as state/provence/territory, or other location of higher precision e.g. city/locale) is not allowed under most circumstances, and is flatly prohibited without first consulting wiki staff.

Leaked confidential information & requesting redactions

Back to top

Posting of personal information that was clearly not intended to be shared will be removed. Editors should not be deliberately digging through the internet to find personal information about players to leak.

Players who have a wiki page about themselves can request (through a verified account on the wiki or our Discord) that certain personal information be redacted from articles. Do not attempt to remove sensitive information yourself without additionally consulting wiki staff– removed information will still be readily accessible in our database otherwise.


Intentionally misleading & damaging information

Back to top

Posting of unverified or exceedingly libelous information is prohibited and is subject to removal by wiki staff. Users posting such information may be subjected to our block policy.

Controversial information may only be posted with multiple credible, concrete outside sources.
