This page contains the Nukapedia's content policy. It describes criteria and rules for all or specific types of content.
Policyintro
  • Policies set general rules for the wiki's administration and its content.
  • Any registered editor is free to edit this page to improve its readability as long as the essence of the article remains unchanged.
  • If you would like to suggest content changes or propose a new policy or guideline, please use the wiki discussion forum.
  • See the policies and guidelines page for an overview of this wiki's policies and guidelines.

Content criteria

  • All content should relate to the Fallout series of games, its setting or the SPECIAL character system.
  • All content needs to be accurate. Fallout Wiki aims to provide reliable information. In particular, adding speculation and own inventions (fan fiction, fan art etc.) to articles should be avoided.
  • All content needs to be verifiable. Other editors need to be able to check and verify it.
  • All content needs to be informative. Information which is only of interest to the writer or to other editors (as opposed to readers) should not be included in articles.
  • All content needs to be objective. Opinions, gameplay strategy, and "my favorite"-style passages should not be added to articles. Accordingly, guides may only be posted as subpages of one's user page or as a blog.
  • All content needs to relate to the games as delivered by the developers; user modifications are not covered by this wiki.
  • All content needs to abide by copyright regulations. Generally, content from other sites should not be copied unless permission has been granted. For example, do not upload magazine scans or add illegally obtained information, so as to avoid potential legal problems.

Criteria for specific content

Notable loot

Behind the scenes

  • "Behind the scenes" information in the form of cultural references is acceptable page content only when there are direct visual or textual correlations.

Bugs

Similarities to real-world weapons

  • Similarities between in-game weapons and real-world weapons are not to be included in articles, with the following two exceptions:
    • If there is a sourced quote from a game developer stating which real-world weapon the in-game weapon is based on.
    • If the in-game weapon shares the exact name of the real-world weapon.

Spoiler policy

  • In general, the whole wiki is considered a spoiler and specific spoilers should not be marked as such in articles.
  • The only exception to this rule is information relating to upcoming games or add-ons, i.e. games or add-ons which have not been released yet but are to be released in the future. This information should be marked as a spoiler with the {{upcoming}} template.
