The following rules apply to editing and creating articles.
The following items are highly recommended, but not highly punishable. Usually, another editor will happily fix any little mistakes you make (we all make them!) However, you may get a nudge on your message wall by an admin or other editor if you fail to comply with these repeatedly.
- Follow the style guide whenever possible to help keep the wiki consistent. Most of the style-specific editing guidelines are found there.
- Common in-game information typically does not need to be cited, but facts that could be debated -- especially when related to scrapped content or something out-of-universe -- should always be cited. This helps to combat misinformation and fan speculation.
- Please consider providing a descriptive edit summary before submitting, especially when removing content from an article. A summary is not required for small changes such as typo fixes.
- Only add categories if they are really needed. For example, Gremlin Prescott would not need to be in an 'Evil Gremlins' category since he is the only character that would make sense for it.
Article creation rules
Before publishing a new article, please consider the following:
- Is there an existing article or section on this topic? If so, expand the original article instead.
- Is the topic directly related to Epic Mickey? If not, it might not be suited for this wiki.
- Does your article contain non-canon content? This wiki is not a place for fan theories or speculation.
- Is there enough content? Typically, an article should have at least three sentences.
- Is the topic notable enough to warrant its own article? Certain topics simply are not notable enough to justify having their own article and would be better suited as an addition to an existing one. Toon characters, locations, and quests are good examples of notable article subjects. Incidental characters from projector screens, small Disney references, and background scenery are examples of topics that do not warrant their own articles.
The following items are highly enforced. Failure to comply may result in a warning or block.
- There is a zero-tolerance policy for vandalism. This includes adding gibberish, rude content, mass-deleting pages, and deliberately false info. Though a warning will usually be given for minor or potentially unintentional offenses, the admins reserve the right to block vandals without prior notice at their discretion depending on the type of vandalism.
- Under no circumstances should you remove an admin's edit, or attempt to rollback the edit in any way. If you have a problem with what is written, leave them a note on their message wall.
- Edit wars should be avoided. If a change is controversial, it should be debated in the discussion forums or a message wall instead of clogging up an article's edit history.
- In the event of an argument over edits, please contact an admin before things escalate. The admin will then either make a decision based on the rules and guidelines or call a community vote.
- Taking advantage of browser or MediaWiki exploits to crash the reader's browser will result in an indefinite block and a report to the Fandom staff.
