Verification

There are three levels of general users, roles including Vault Dweller, SAFE test, and Nukapedian. Channel access is dependent on these verifications, and can be completed in #the-vault-door channel, where one will find instructions on how to do so. Fallout Wiki activity is required to maintain the Nukapedian role and users who have been inactive for longer than 30 days are subject to removal. In either case, users may rejoin and/or reverify at any time.

Rules

The conduct guidelines below detail expectations for all interactions, are not exhaustive, and are in addition to both Discord Guidelines and Terms of Service.

Conduct

1. Discussions must be kept within their dedicated channels. If a topic goes off topic, suggest or follow suggestions to move the conversation to appropriate channels.
2. If an interaction becomes too acrimonious, ping or message any staff member. If a staff member indicates a conversation should end, respect their decision.
3. Rules listed here are in addition to those listed in Discord Terms of Service but do not fall under listed services of Fandom Terms of Use. However, blocks that are put in place on the Fallout Wiki will mirror to Discord bans. The decision to mirror a Discord ban on the Fallout Wiki as a block is at administrator discretion.
4. Using alt accounts to bypass Discord bans or Fallout Wiki blocks is considered ban evasion and is not allowed.
5. Be civil and courteous to other users on the server. Do not engage in personal attacks, hate speech, harassment, threats, or sexually degrading language. Do not spam, excessively use capital letters, or ping others repetitively. NSFW content is not allowed and will be removed.
6. Do not reveal personally identifiable information about users or violate confidentiality on issues asked to be kept confidential by other users or administrators. This includes linking to external sources such as social media accounts.
7. Users are allowed to delete or edit their own posts, but disruptive or misrepresentative alteration or removal of information is not allowed.
8. Participation in this server assumes understanding and acceptance of rules.

Voice chat and bots

9. Voice channels can be used freely by everyone and follow the same rules as chat, including prohibition of topics outlined above. Take turns speaking and avoid talking over others. If you wish to participate in the voice channel, related text conversation should take place in the #intercom-transcripts channel.
10. Bots are present in the server for moderation purposes. Bots and related images should only be used sparingly outside the #robot-repair-center and #the-big-empty, with the exception of the wiki-bot, which can be used in related channels. Any user wishing for or to bring a bot into the server must gain approval from an administrator.

Hall of debate

11. All potentially contentious subject matter is allowed only in the #hall-of-debate channel, which requires a staff sponsorship. Reach out to a staff member for this role. Topics restricted to this channel include, but are not limited to, those of religion, politics, and divisive history.

User/nicknames

12. Server nicknames do not have to match Fallout Wiki usernames, with the exception of administrators and bureaucrats. These staff members may alternatively identify their wiki username in their about me, as long as it is visible to users. Nicknames cannot consist of content that would otherwise violate server rules, nor can they mirror that of a staff member. Staff impersonation in any form is not allowed.

Moderation

Moderation of the server is the responsibility of members listed here. Bans and their duration are at the discretion of staff.

Duration

  • First offense: Warning
  • Second offense: Kick
  • Third offense: Three day ban
  • Fourth: One week ban
  • Fifth: One month ban
  • Subsequent: Permanent ban

Log

Staff members are responsible for updating the moderation log at the time of enforcement and upon expiry, as applicable. Wiki-side blocks are mirrored to Discord bans, and any actions mirrored wiki side must also be communicated on the user's talk page by the acting moderator, explaining rationale and duration. Those without a Fallout Wiki account should also be noted. Staff must also summarily remove moderation actions placed as appropriate.

Chat mentees

Temporary rights are routinely given to mentees as part of the Vault Academy chat moderator training program. The rights are granted in seven day increments, progress of which is documented and overseen by their mentor. They are differentiated by a unique color and role underneath the chat moderator role. They have the same permissions as a chat moderator and function in the same way, with the added level of required engagement with their mentor before administrative action, barring instances of blatant misconduct.
