Hello new editors! Welcome to the Rooster Teeth Wiki, the admins here are CharThom, Kamikaze839, Bobbycat1, and LazarouDave. Before you begin, there are some editing rules that you need to follow:

1. Proper grammar and spelling, it will make it easier for others to understand what you're trying to say


2. This is wiki is supposed to be informative. Every little bit of information helps!


3. Make all articles objective and accurate. Do not put knowingly put in false information, and do not put in any opinions into articles.


4. If your edit was undone for some reason and you believe it to be accurate, click the talk button at the top of the page and voice your concern there. The entire community here will discuss it with you. Also be sure to sign your posts on the talk page so we know who's making the edit (You can sign by typing four ~ in a row).


5. This should go without saying, but do not edit another user's profile. You can leave messages on their talk page, but you can't do anything else to it.


6. This is not required, but strongly recommended: Create a Wikia account. All it requires is your email, and you can turn email notifications off in your account settings. This also helps identify who's who in this wiki, I'm tired of seeing Wikia Contributor on the Recent Wiki Activity page, which you can access by clicking Wiki Activity on the top bar.

7. In certain situations, such as the release of a new show, where there will be lots of speculation or false/biased/inappropriate information being inserted into an article, an admin will lock the page so that only admins and bureaucrats may edit. It will remain locked til the admin that locked the page determines that it is safe to unlock.

If you want to edit articles, good places to gather information are either on their YouTube channel, any of the staff's Tweets and Facebook posts, or the staff and cast pages on the Rooster Teeth Website.

If you want to voice your opinion, please take it to the wiki's forum. There you can also ask an admin for assistance on any matter.

Undoing Edits

Users have the right to undo edits, meaning they can undo the most recent edit. We ask that users do not undo edits unless the edit contains speculation on a show (coming up with ideas of what the show will be about, what the characters are like, etc.), contains vandalism, or doesn't belong on the article. Do not undo edits that are proven facts.

Requests

See the Rooster Teeth Wiki: Administrative Requests page if you are requesting a user to be banned, or a page to be renamed, deleted, or protected.

Punishments

The following table outlines activity that can be punished by any of the admins on this wiki. Some activity will give you a couple warnings, but, depending on how major of an issue the problem is, the punishment may come without any warnings. Also, the admins are a small group of people, we greatly appreciate other users helping us find any users doing punishable activity.

Inappropriate Ban Request The person requesting a ban did not provide a valid ban request (not linking the user or the page where the edit was made, citing the wrong reason {user must be guilty of another bannable behavior}) or the user intentionally fills in a false request (The reporter cites a reason that the reportee was not guilty of, reportee is not guilty of any other bannable behavior, user cites a reason that is not defined on this page)
