FANDOM


Wikia Developers Discord is a Discord server for FANDOM Open Source Library. It is also the place to ask for Wikia-related help. It was founded by Colouratura. Currently, it's owned by KockaAdmiralac.

Joining

  1. Register your account on Discord. You can afterwards download a client for the device you are on.
  2. Use this invite link to join the server.

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 Wikia 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.

Notes

  • You will be greeted by a bot upon entering the server.
  • 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 Open Source Library and the administrators know your Wikia username, and you should be assigned a member role.
  • If a user with a username of a Wikia Staff member joins the server, they will be asked to verify they are Staff by entering the FANDOM Open Source Library 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.
