Rules of Editing

From HoYoverse Multiverse Index

Welcome potential editor of this wiki!

In order to stay on mission, there are a couple of rules to follow. If you notice any these rules qwre broken, don't hesitate to let us know either through this platform or through the Hoyostans Discord.

Rules:

1. Maintain consistent design and check if pages already exist.

When you add a page, always check if a similar page exists. If it does, you can click 'Edit Source' and copy the page's contents to your new page, and edit the layout from there. Also make sure you use the right reality code.

If a page already exists,

2. Don't callously erase the work of others.

If you think a page needs extreme reworks, engage with the community to discuss the matter. Small corrections are fine.

3. Add correct information.

If any info you want to add is dubious, try and verify it. Don't rely on hearsay. Any content that comes from untranslated texts should warrant extra skepticism. In these cases, it can pay to add sources to the page.

4. Don't add information from leaks.

Hoyostans does not support leaks and leaks are not welcome here. Do not add leaks to the wiki. If you notice leaks were added, please let us know in the community. If someone knowingly adds leaks, they will be banned.

5. Regarding CN content.

Don't add information from a desynced CN server. If a server in CN is a period of time ahead of the English servers, wait until the English servers have caught up until you add the information.

CN content that is not absent due to desync but due to a lack of translation or localisation may be added, and is encouraged. Providing sources is highly encouraged.

6. Credit where it's due.

Use official artwork to represent the worlds and characters. If you notice uncredited fanart on the wiki, please let us know.

7. Regarding existing wikis.

You can link to other wikis that go into depth on the characters. However, do not trust the information on them without verifying through sources. Some of the wikis for these games have many errors.

8. Regarding the rules.

Not every situation can be foreseen. Even if something is not written in these rules, please stick to proper conduct and use of the wiki. Moderation may ban transgressors for misconduct or edit poorly motivated contributions even if none of the above rules were specifically violated.
