Jump to navigation Jump to search

Welcome to the Toxic Fandoms & Hatedoms Wiki! We are a PG-13, LGBTQ+ safe zone and diversity-friendly wiki.

Here, you can make pages about toxic fandoms and hatedoms, talk in the Discord and discussion posts, create blog posts, upload images and videos, and more. Before you edit, comment, use the Discord, or discuss, please be sure to read our Guidelines below. Please note that our community is in compliance with Miraheze's ToU.

General Guidelines

  1. You must be at least 13 years old in order to have an account. Anyone who is revealed to be 12 or under will be blocked until their 13th birthday.
  2. Due to a terrible history of heavy vandalism, new users can no longer edit. In order to edit, you must send a request to an admin via private message and they will give you the confirmed user right.
  3. Make sure to use the words "Fandom" or "Hatedom" when naming an article. Also, if a fandom or hatedom is mostly good, add "(Toxic Portion)" next to which is mostly good.
    • If you make a page of a character's fandom and/or hatedom, you must always include the media of origin to avoid confusion with characters bearing similar names.
  4. The main headings for a Fandom/Hatedom are Why This Fandom Is Toxic, Why This Hatedom is Toxic, Why Both Of These Are Toxic, and the Why Half Of The Fandom is Toxic. Please don’t use the WHY THEY SUCK SO HARD! nor the Why It's VERY EXTREMELY TOXIC!! at the headings of a page where the fandom/hatedom is really toxic because it’s deemed immature and more of a hate page (meaning that you don't use red, bold and underlined text in all caps on the headings). If they're not counted as a fandom or a hatedom, don't include the words "Fandom" and "Hatedom"
  5. If a fandom or hatedom isn't really that bad, obnoxious, mean spirited, or annoying, it can't be on here. It should go on our sister wikiHF&HW instead.
  6. Don't remove any information from articles unless you have a good reason to.
  7. Any forms of drama, flame, cyberbullying, threats or harassment of any kind to users will not be tolerated and will most likely get an IP block. You may use your own talk page to appeal to your ban.
  8. Profanity is legal as long as you don't abuse it so please don't censor anything except for slurs.
    • Refrain from language and actions that put others down on the basis of sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, culture, or any other reason.
  9. Please use proper grammar and good English so that it is understandable.
  10. Be sure to add at least one image when you or someone else create a page, if possible. If you use fanart, then be sure to credit the artist. You can add more than one image if you want to, but it's up to you.
  11. Do not create any blank, TBA, incomplete or coming soon pages. You may use your sandbox to create drafts for pages. Remember that if you make an official page, be sure to have at least 5 detailed bullet points. Failure to meet the requirements will likely have those pages deleted and/or moved to the page creators' sandbox since it is considered "incomplete".
    • Speaking of which, please do not add TBA or coming soon under the Why This Fandom Is Toxic, Why This Hatedom is Toxic, and the Why Both Of These Are Toxic & Why Half Of The Fandom is Toxic section.
  12. If you are a member of any of the fandoms or hatedoms on this wiki, then please try to understand why we’re criticizing them for all the good reasons.
  13. If something has both a bad fandom and hatedom please put them on one page.
  14. Do NOT overuse emojis, red text, bold words and underlined words in articles (some bold words, underlined words red fonts are allowed in articles but others are not), as that seems childish, immature, unprofessional and overly dramatic.
  15. Do not edit other people's user pages, only edit yours unless you have permission from them.
  16. Remember: fandoms, hatedoms or communities do not dictate the quality of a product.
  17. You will always be able to argue about your block on your own talk page unless what you did was unforgivable.
  18. Joke captions are allowed as long as it doesn't offend people.
  19. No plagiarism.
  20. Be respectful and don't be prejudiced.
  21. You may replace the “Why It’s Toxic” and the "Redeeming Qualities" headings with jokes as long as it is fitting for the article.
  22. No vandalism of any sort.
  23. No attack/biased articles.
  24. No necroposting. This means that if there is a discussion that has been inactive for more than a month or is resolved, please don't revive or reopen said topic as that's an act of gravedigging. Continuing to do this after multiple warnings will result in a block.
  25. Please don't use the terms "ENOUGH SAID", "LET THAT SINK IN", "THEY WORSHIP IT", "BASH", "BIG TIME", "WORSE THAN HITLER", and "DISRESPECT OPINIONS" on wiki pages as it gets really annoying. Using those will get a warning.
  26. Do not call everything a fandom, examples include religions and countries since they aren't fandoms.
  27. Do not add the redeeming qualities for fandoms and hatedoms that they are against bad things like terrorism, racism or sexism since it isn't enough to be redeemed unless it has something to do with those topics.
  28. If possible, be sure to add the comments section when creating an article.
  29. Please lessen the usage of cliché pointers and cliché words as they get really repetitive. Use this blog as a guide to refrain from using the same pointers on every page on this wiki.
    • Adding any banned phrases will get you blocked for 1 day without a warning since it encourages opinion lashing towards the readers of this wiki.
      • If users continue to add these types of phrases after they've been blocked once, the next block time will be extended, following the ban policy below.
      • The same penalty will apply to the users who add this reason: "However, the reason why we added the "Opinions that really deserve disrespecting" category is because this fandom/hatedom has very serious issues that we just couldn't handle and tolerate" since it just adds more bias to the wiki.
  30. Don't close or open a discussion thread by an administrator unless if they give consent. Violating this law will incur a block.
  31. Do not undo an admin's edit (this will result in a 2-hour timeout without warning). If you must undo an edit by an admin, please ask their permission first before you undo the edit.
  32. Do not create new categories. If you think a new category is needed, ask the admins for their consent first. If your suggestion proves to be useful, they'll create it for you.
  33. Parents, if you have any questions, please contact a staff member on their message wall.
  34. Gas-lighting is not allowed at all. Gas-lighting is where someone attempts to put doubt in a targeted individual, making them question their own memory, perception, and/or judgment. This is manipulation.
  35. You are not allowed to do flaming here. Flaming is the online act of posting insults, often laced with profanity or other offensive languages on social networking sites.
  36. Mentions of self-harm or suicidal thoughts may not get the results you wanted. If you have suicidal thoughts, the wiki is not the place to get help, as we are not therapists. Seek professional help instead. You are allowed of course, to vent if you want to. But we recommend getting help from someone who knows how to deal with these things very well.
  37. Do not try to shame someone for going through a very traumatic event to be funny. (Example: "Haha Isabelle lost her cat! I bet it sucked all your life away!").
  38. Do not create sockpuppets. This means creating multiple accounts to avoid a ban or cause problems on the wiki. Sockpuppets may be blocked permanently. Having multiple accounts is allowed as long as you are abiding by the rules and admins are notified of who owns the account.'
  39. However, if more than one person has the same ip address, this does not instantly mean they are sockpuppeting.
  40. Do not attempt to dox anyone. Doxxing is when you search for someone's personal information without their consent. This will result in an infinite block.
  41. Photos containing blood/gore, suggestive content, or offensive content are prohibited and will result in a block.
  42. Do not attempt to sell anything to anyone on this wiki. Failure to comply with this rule will be considered scamming and will result in a permanent block. We understand you may have a job online where you sell things, but take that somewhere else. We apologize.
  43. Please do not ask others for personal information. This includes asking for ages, passwords, addresses, phone numbers, zip codes, birth certificates, locations, name(s), etc. Sharing personal information is prohibited and will result in a block. Sharing certain information, such as your age, and name(s) is allowed and is an optional choice.
  44. Also do not try to shame anyone for where they live if they choose to say it (Example: "You live in London? That place is utter garbage!").
  45. Do not try to raid other wikis. Even though this wiki is for criticizing fandoms and hatedoms, you must remain civil around them and don't try to raid other wikis on Miraheze or FANDOM. (Example: "let's raid the Undertale wiki! They can't stop all of us.")
  46. Please refrain from engaging in cross-wiki drama. This is when a user brings drama-related issues from other wikis onto this wiki. Issues pertaining to other communities, including bans, wiki changes, or arguments must be handled on the appropriate wiki. Failure to comply with this rule will result in a block.
  47. Kink-shaming is not allowed whatsoever. Shaming someone for their kinks will result in a ban for life.
