Dead by Daylight Wiki

The Dead by Daylight Wiki's aim is to be a free source of information about the game Dead by Daylight and related subjects. The wiki can be freely edited by anyone willing to contribute and functions on the basis of the civil, constructive collaboration and consensus of its contributors. In order to keep the Dead by Daylight Wiki free of spam and unnecessary items, there are a few rules we ask you to abide by when editing and creating pages:

§1 Dead by Daylight's EULA

§2 Editing Conduct

  • Vandalism, Spam, Advertising and disruptive editing are not allowed.
  • Avoid posting off-topic content.
  • Avoid misleading readers and other editors by making sure your contributions to articles are verifiable. Do not add parody content, or hoaxes to articles.
  • Do not link or embed external videos in articles, unless there is no other way to demonstrate the phenomenon, or the video is official.
  • Defamatory or false content is not tolerated on this Wiki.

§3 Blocking

  • A user can be blocked if they commit any of the following offenses and do not comply after being asked to by a Wiki Guardian. Note that block durations can be defined individually at a Wiki Guardian's discretion and that second-time offenders will be blocked permanently:
    • Vandalism, Spamming
      • NOTE: Note that spamming includes making an excessive number of requests and/or comments which (i) do not add to the Wiki in any way, shape or form and (ii) are unreasonable for either side to indulge on.
    • Advertising
    • Harassment, Disrespect
    • Abusing alternate accounts
    • Violations of any of the policies described hereon
  • Non-permanent blocks may be appealed, which can be done in the following ways:
    • On their talk page if it is unlocked
    • By contacting a Wiki Guardian directly
    • On the Wiki's Discord Server

§4 Communication Standards

  • Be respectful to everyone.
  • Harassment, insults and personal attacks are not tolerated. Keep discussion as civil as possible.
  • Defamation can result in a block without warning.

§5 Speculative Content

  • Avoid posting speculative content on the Wiki. This includes leaked content.
  • The Wiki Guardians reserve the right to delete any content not confirmed by BHVR from the Wiki.

§6 Article and File Deletions

  • We are not a file-hosting service. If an image is uploaded and not integrated into a useful article soon after, we reserve the right to delete it without notice.
  • Articles that do not meet the standards described here may also be deleted.

§7 Edit Warring

  • A contributor must not perform more than three reversions, in whole or in part, to a single Dead by Daylight Wiki article within a 24 hour period.
    • This does not imply that reverting three times or fewer is acceptable.
  • For the purpose of counting reverts, these are excluded:
    • reverting your own changes
    • fixing simple vandalism
    • removing posts by a banned user
    • reverting edits clearly not adding anything to the article
    • reverting edits to your user pages
  • Using alternate accounts to bypass this rule is also a violation of policy.
  • In case users progressively revert changes from one another more than three times, the affected article will be locked until a consensus is reached.
  • The consequences of breaking this rule are decided on a case-by-case basis, but can result in a block if the Wiki Administrators deem it necessary.

§8 External Links

  • Links to other Wikis and to external websites not related to Dead by Daylight or BHVR are generally not allowed. Exceptions to this rule are possible and decided on a case-by-case basis.

§9 Vandalism

  • Vandalism includes:
    • Removing valid content without explanation or an explanation that makes no sense.
    • Posting items strictly forbidden by these rules.
    • Adding any kind offensive words, terms, or phrases to articles.
    • Adding gibberish/nonsense to articles.

§10 Copyrighted Material

  • Uploading copyrighted material which is in blatant violation of fair use is not permitted.
    • The standards described here are binding and are to be followed by all users.

§11 Username Policy

  • Offensive, misleading, or otherwise unacceptable usernames are not allowed and will be blocked indefinitely until the username is changed.
    • For that matter, the user should appeal on their talk page after they have changed their username.

§12 Alternate Accounts

  • Maintaining more than one account is generally discouraged.
  • Abusing alternate accounts will not be tolerated.

Thank you for following these rules.
