These are the Among Us Wiki's rules that set limits for all users to keep the wiki clean and safe. As long as everyone follows these rules, they can have a great experience while they edit and interact with each other.

All users must read and follow these rules, regardless of the situation. Any user showing unacceptable conduct will be warned and if they persist, they'll be blocked from interacting with the wiki depending on the severity of the situation and their past violations.

If you see someone breaking one of these rules, report it immediately to an admin on their message wall or with our Discord ticketing system.

We may change our rules in the future depending on the current circumstances, so if you want to suggest a new rule or a change to the existing ones, do so here.

Users

  • Everyone must show respect for each other, regardless of the circumstances. Be civil if you disagree with someone. Harassing or attacking other users is not tolerated.
    • If a user asks you to stop doing something related to them, then you must stop.
  • Content that is obscene, pornographic, abusive, offensive, profane, or otherwise violates any law or right of any third party, or content that contains homophobia, ethnic slurs, religious intolerance, or encourages criminal conduct is not tolerated, per Fandom's Terms of Use.
  • Refrain from discussing political topics or social justice.
  • Impersonation of other people is not tolerated.
  • Avoid discussing your issues from other wikis on this wiki, as we are not related to them.
  • You may not distribute knowledge on Among Us hacks, cheats, or game modifications (third-party tools used to gain an advantage or edit game files), or where to obtain a modified version of the game where paid features (ex. skins, pets) are available for free.
    • Do not tell users to edit game files.
  • Do not post spam anywhere (Either repetitive messages or large sums of characters).
  • Advertising is not allowed. This includes Discord servers, YouTube channels, social media accounts, or any other third party content.
    • Linking to a related wiki like the Henry Stickmin Wiki in articles is allowed if it is useful.
    • Linking to other wikis you participate in on your user page is allowed.
    • Advertising other sites are only allowed in the global Fandom profile, not in anything on this wiki.
  • Do not discuss or share any leaked content that was not intended to be released.
  • You must be at least 13 years old to create an account and edit, per Fandom's Terms of Use.
    • If you discover that a user is underage, report to an admin with evidence.
    • Underage users will be reported to Fandom staff immediately.
  • If your username, bio, links, or profile picture are sexual or offensive, your account will be blocked until they are removed.
  • Using an alternate account is allowed within reason, as long as it is not used to evade a block or as a sockpuppet.
  • When socializing with other users on the wiki, never share any personal information about yourself or anyone you know, such as passwords, school, address, email, etc.
    • Never request personal information from other users.
  • Any user that behaves badly or in an unruly way will be punished however staff see fit. This can range from a warning to a permanent block.
  • If staff leave a warning on your Message Wall, you are not allowed to delete it. Doing so will result in another warning or block.
  • If you notice any staff behaving badly, message a bureaucrat on their Message Wall or the Discord server.

Discussion

  • You must select the right category for your post (like memes, wiki, art).
  • Do not post duplicate posts or polls.

  • Only talk about Among Us/wiki-related topics.

    • Henry Stickmin has its own wiki, so it doesn't belong here.
  • No spam or NSFW/inappropriate posts or comments.
  • Profanity is allowed, but keep it to a minimum.

  • Posts that solicit likes will be deleted.
  • Do not mention people unless you believe they would have a significant interest in seeing the post.
  • Your posts or comments may be deleted at any time if a moderator does not feel it adequately contributes to the community.

    • You may create one post with a start time. People can sign up, and at the start time, the roleplay will start in that post. You cannot create a separate sign up post.

  • Do not necropost. This means commenting on posts where the last reply was more than a month ago.
    • If a conversation is ongoing, it is okay.
  • No low effort posts.
    • This means a very short post (less than 10 words) and is made as a statement.

      • Please only post images that are somewhere within the realm of quality.
    • No polls like "What color is sus," "What color do you play as," "What map do you prefer," "Should I make/do ___," "Petition to ___," etc.
      • Official polls can be found here.
  • Staff will lock out of control posts. If you think a post should be locked, mention a staff member.
  • You must also follow all other wiki rules.
