This is the home page of a Nukapedia project. A project is a collaboration of editors improving articles and other content related to a particular subject. For more information, see Fallout Wiki:Projects.
This project has been completed and is no longer active.

The Policy and guidelines project is a project which aims to establish an initial collection of policies and guidelines for Fallout Wiki in order to improve the general quality of all articles.


The goal is to create a comprehensive framework which codifies the substantial amount of unwritten rules at this wiki. This is done to reduce workload for the administrators and to help new and old editors with contributing to our wiki.

Consequently, this means creating guidelines and policies for:

  • Content criteria
    • Creation of new articles, merging and notability
    • Bugs
    • Behind the scenes
  • General article style and editing
  • Images and videos
  • Article naming, categorization and disambiguation
  • User conduct/etiquette
  • Administrative duties and abilities
    • Deletion
    • Blocking
    • Protection

For a list of guidelines and policies which are currently being discussed, please refer to "Progress" below.
