    1. We suggest you to appeal your own block in the Warning thread in your own Message Wall. However, if you were not able to do so due to a glitch on FANDOM software or anything else, you may leave a block appeal message on an admin's Message Wall in the Community Central.

QnA

Any guidelines for which images are allowed to be uploaded here?

Click [Expand] to see Answer.
Images allowed to be uploaded:
LoucoArtwork.png Doofus the cookie by idiotboy360-d9hcywh.jpg IMG 5218.jpg
Matryoshka.png
Official artworks. Fan arts of DWtD series. Fan arts featuring characters that's clearly based on DWtD characters.
Or anything elses that feature/directly reference DWtD contents are allowed, including Build A Bean OCs.

The following may violate the image-uploading rule:

Images nothing related to DWtD. Original drawings without clear DWtD references. Making excuses for this character like "It resembles some existing beans" won't help.
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.

Strikes

  1. You may get a warning as either a Message Wall thread, or 1 day block if you violate rules. When you violate rules again since the warning, you'll get blocked for several days or forever.
  2. The block may be given without issuing warning first for following cases:
    • Abusing multiple accounts to evade blocks
    • Advertisement spam
    • Cross-wiki vandalism/spam
    • Or anything violates the FANDOM ToS including but not limited to:
      • Posting or transmiting any content that is obscene, pornographic, abusive, offensive, profane, or otherwise violates any law or right of any third party, or content that contains homophobia, transphobia, ethnic slurs, religious intolerance, or encourages criminal conduct
      • COPPA rule - Must be 13+ in order to use the site
