Rules

  • DBAD
  • Don't abuse role pings.
  • Don't post content irrelevant to the channel it's being posted in. If you're not sure where to post something, read the channel description of that channel. If you're still not sure, ask in #lobby.
  • First 4 characters of your nickname or username must be characters that can be found on a normal QWERTY keyboard. This is so people can @mention you easily.
  • Do not rant. Constructive criticism is allowed.
  • The server is not a shortcut to having a user blocked, JavaScript enabled or your Council application responded to. Please do not bother FANDOM Staff about things that should be going through the official contact form, as the server is not an official channel of contacting them.
  • Don't ask to ask, just ask.

Bots

Wikia Developers Discord utilizes two bots: Mee6 and Novica44 (a modified version of WikiaLinker), which provide additional functionality to the server.

Custom commands

The Mee6 bot is used for providing custom commands on the server. All custom commands start with a ! prefix. Custom commands are as following:

Role commands

These commands are also handled by Mee6 and start with !, but the invocation of them is always deleted on success and they provide no response, however, they assign a role to the invoking user or remove it from them. They will only succeed if the invoking user has not previously had the role when trying to assign it or hasn't previously had the role when trying to remove it.

The commands are in the format of !<rolename> for assigning roles and !rm<rolename> for removing them. That means the available role commands are:

  • !javascript / !rmjavascript
  • !css / !rmcss
  • !wikitext / !rmwikitext
  • !lua / !rmlua
  • !portability / !rmportability
  • !rmcontentmod — In case a content moderator wants the role removed from them (assigning must be done by administrators in order to verify the user is actually a content moderator on FANDOM Developers Wiki)

Links

Novica44 provides a way to link to pages on FANDOM Developers Wiki and other FANDOM wikis. There are three available link formats it recognizes:

  • [[Link]] — Links to a page on FANDOM Developers Wiki. If you want to link to pages on other wikis, use [[w:c:wikidomain:Page]]
  • --Link-- — Searches for a term using FANDOM's search API and returns the first result
  • {{Link}} — Same as [[Link]], but doesn't work cross-wiki and provides a 100-character snippet of the linked article, if one can be obtained

Other

  • Mee6 is also used for automatic greeting of users upon joining the server and telling others when a user leaves a server.
  • There is also an auto-moderation system set up. In case it gets falsely triggered on you, DM a server administrator about it.

Notes

  • Users without any roles that haven't been online for more than a month will be removed from the server during a purge happening every 14th day of a month. If this happens to you, feel free to rejoin.
    • To prevent this from happening, make sure you have at least 1 edit on FANDOM Developers Wiki and the administrators know your FANDOM username, and you should be assigned a member role.
  • If a user with a username of a FANDOM Staff member joins the server, they will be asked to verify they are Staff by entering the FANDOM Developers Wiki chat or change their nickname, unless previously verified on the Wikia Community Discord server (through Slack).
  • Any suggestions on how to improve the server should be passed to server administrators.
  • Role colors are based on FANDOM design system colors.
