REMEMBER: Always follow the rules. If you violate any of these rules, you will get a warning. If you repeat two more times, you will be banned from the wiki. If you vandalize the wiki, you will be banned without any warning.

Creating and editing pages

  1. Avoid using scary images, NSFW/NSFL images, videos, or clickable links that lead directly to the screamer website. Instead, use non-clickable links, or links that can't be clicked on. For example, ScaryScreamer.com.
  2. Use either the forum, user talk pages, or user subpages to communicate with other users. Do not create pages that are out of subject, or you will get a warning.
  3. Use correct grammar and spelling, write in American English. If this rule is violated, your account won't get banned.
  4. The page name must always be the name of the screamer, without www. or http:// . For example, ScaryScreamer.com, and not http://www.ScaryScreamer.com. The name's capitalization may be changed to title case if necessary.
  5. Do not brigade or plan a brigade to this wiki or user. Doing so will result in an immediate ban.
  6. Do not delete, blank or replace the content of a page. If you want to delete a page, just add {{delete}} but keep the page intact.
  7. Do not post anything that is illegal in the United States.

Forums and User Subpages

  • Be respectful to others, no insults, racial slurs, harassment, or discrimination will be tolerated. Users making credible threats or doxxing may be reported to law enforcement.
  • Do not post spam or clickable links to screamers to trick other users.
  • Do not edit other people's posts or user pages unless the user is breaking a rule.
  • You can talk about anything you want.
  • Posts may be edited or deleted if they violate COPPA. If this happens, your account will not be banned.
  • Follow United States law. If you break the law, you may be reported to law enforcement.

Activity outside Screamer Wiki

  • We ask that you do not act in a way that would reflect poorly upon the Screamer Wiki or its users.

Usernames and Second Accounts

  • Do not create accounts with inappropriate usernames. Doing so will result in the account being renamed.
  • Do not use second accounts (sockpuppets) to break any of the other rules listed.
  • Do not use second accounts to circumvent a ban. Doing so will result in a permanent ban, so wait or appeal your current ban.
  • Do not impersonate people. Doing so will result in a permanent ban.

Ban appeals

If you would like to appeal a ban, simply put a message on your own talk page or email stating why your ban should be lifted.

Good practices

  • Remove clickable links that go directly to the website and replace them with un-clickable links.
  • Flag any photos or videos that contain a screamer with {{Delete}} to flag the file for deletion.
  • If you see someone violating any of the rules, tell them by using this template and fix the page.
  • If you see someone vandalizing and brigading the wiki, fix the page and contact an administrator.
  • If you see any grammatical or spelling mistakes, correct them or add {{Cleanup}}
  • If you see any false information, correct it.
  • If there are missing categories, add them.
  • If you are creating pages for shock sites, please add the {{NSFW}} warning template at the very top of the page first.
  • If you see any articles (or portions) of articles that have been plagiarized, give credit of the portion to the original website (example: Jarsquatter) or delete the portion entirely.
  • If you see any parts of an article that are uncited, cite them or add {{citation}}
  • Make sure articles follow the Manual of Style

Minimum Age

  • Due to COPPA, you must be at least 13 years old to post personal information.
    • If you are under 13, you must not post any identifiable information that shows that you are under 13.

Deleting Your Account

Accounts can never be fully deleted, like on Wikipedia. The most you can do is ask an Admin for your account to be vanished.

Templates and examples

  • Here is a list of good pages; they contain images, pertinent info, links, galleries (when necessary), and are well structured and follow most of the criteria on the Manual of Style.
