These are some basic editing guidelines that everyone should follow on the Terraria Wiki:
- Don't post spam and don't vandalize pages. See Blocking Policy.
- Images uploaded to the wiki should comply with the Image Policy.
- Don't upload or embed videos. Videos are managed by administrator HeroGaming (a.k.a. HERO).
- Before making a new page, search thoroughly and make sure that a similar page doesn't already exist. For example, a page about Lava Traps should not be created, because there's already a page called Traps on the wiki where lava traps can be described.
- Before publishing edits, always 1) write a brief description of your edit in the Edit Summary window at the upper-right corner of the screen and 2) click "Preview" to make sure the edit looks good.
- Use correct spelling and grammar. Don't use vulgar language.
- Don't put opinions, rumors, guesses or anything non-Terraria related on pages. Only relevant facts.
- Write using the third person narrative. Basically, this means don't use words like "I" or "you."
- Don't add pictures to pages that already have 2+ pictures.
- Optional: Advanced Editing Policy, for editors who want to contribute more than the average person.
