    1. You can call them whatever you want, such as calling Numpty as Smokey, but such unofficial information are not allowed to be contained or replaced from official information in the main pages.
    2. The character(s) made by yourself or other fan-made contents cannot be made as a page or contained in one, but you can post them in your own profile, wall, blog, and/or make a discussion in the forum.
      1. Only the derivative works without harm the original element such as background-removed(as transparent background) version are allowed for main pages.
    3. Reverting/Changing them to unofficial information is defined as Vandalising, which should violate the first Community Rules.
    4. For the characters without official name/gender, they could have been named/given while adding articles about them, but you must put {{Unofficialname}} / {{GenderArgument}} template inside and such unofficial name/gender replaced when their official name/gender has been announced.
      1. However, the previous names (but not genders) will be recorded in Character name history.
  2. No Original Research/Headcanon(Speculative information) is allowed.

    • Using Offensive/Sexual words, Cursing or Insulting toward others that against the Profanity Rules
    • Trolling, Flamebaiting or other ways to disrupting others
    • Vandalism

    1. This rule is also effective to the comment, main pages, forum and any other places visible for the public in Dumb Ways to Die Wiki.
  2. The images that are not related to DWtD series will be deleted immediately and then a warning may be issued to the uploader, unless External image is used. This is because those images can spam the Special:Images page, especially if you specifically are looking for DWtD-related images! As well as those also can blur the subject of our wiki: a whole Dumb Ways to Die series.
    1. This rule does not apply to images uploaded before August 30th, 2016, 10:06 PM (EST).
  3. No Mini-modding is allowed. (i.e. Such as giving Template:Warning to other's Message Wall) Because this can bother or confuse people who did nothing wrong! If you found something against our wiki rules, then please simply report it to us instead.
  4. A third party cannot have an objection for the blocked/warned user. Because the terms of which a user was blocked or warned is based on the judgement of the action viewed by the admin or moderator. If a third party wishes to discuss the terms for which a user was blocked or warned, it should be presented not in defense of the blocked/warned user, but in question of the rule that was broken.
    1. A third party cannot make an objection in other's own Warning thread.
    2. Only the blocked/warned user themselves are allowed to have an objection for their own block/warning.


Do you have any guidelines for which images are allowed to be uploaded in here?

Click [Expand] to see Answer.
The following images are okay to be uploaded:
LoucoArtwork Doofus the cookie by idiotboy360-d9hcywh IMG 5218 Matryoshka
The official artwork provided by Metro. The fanart of DWtD series. The fanart about humanized DWtD characters which still is a clear reference to them. A parody featured with DWtD characters, which is clear to recognize that they were based on DWtD characters.
Or anything else that features/directly references DWtD contents is allowed, including Build A Bean OCs.

The following images must only be submitted as External image:

The image nothing related to DWtD. The original drawing nothing recognized to DWtD characters nor being a clear original DWtD character. Of course this character may resembles Numskull, Mishap or Botch, but there's no direct reference to them.
Even though the image itself featured a nametag of DWtD characters or the equivalent, and is on the topic of DWtD series, it still is not related due to it falling into the "resemblance" matter, resulting in some pictures that is totally off-topic from DWtD with a nametag which could be allowed.

To have an image that is eligible to be uploaded in this wiki; Remember, the image must feature/directly reference DWtD content, including characters.


The first time you violate above rules, you may get a warning on your Message Wall. Finally, when you violate above rules again since the warning, you'll get blocked for several days.

  1. Especially if you violate the first Community Rules after the warning is issued, you will get blocked for an indefinite time (forever) in general.
  2. The block may be given without issuing warning first for following cases:
    • Sockpuppeting (Abusing multiple accounts to avoid blocks)
    • Advertisement spam
    • Cross-wiki vandalism/spam
    • Or anything violate the Wikia ToS including:
      • Publishing contents that contain obscene, pornographic, abusive, offensive, profane, or otherwise violates any law or right of any third party, or content that contains homophobia, ethnic slurs, religious intolerance, or encourage criminal conduct
      • COPPA rule (users under age 13 will be blocked immediately)
  3. Any cases from a long time (e.g. older than 2 weeks) may not result in a warn or block for those involved, but we may just delete what they have done that breaks the rules; as there could be a possibility for them to become a good user during such a long time, therefore we cannot determine their bad faith in old content.
