Here on Wikitubia, there are rules upon creating a page for any YouTube channel or related article. Please read these rules before editing a page.

Subscribers

If a YouTuber's subscribers are hidden, the user must show proof that the channel had the minimum requirement BEFORE the subscribers were hidden.

A YouTuber page will only be accepted if the channel has 500 or more subscribers, as well as uploaded video content. If the page does not follow that rule, it will be deleted. For more information about this, please check the 'Creating a Page' tab.

Categories

When adding categories, please remember we only will be using the following:

Male YouTubers or Female YouTubers, what country they are from (ex: American YouTubers, Canadian YouTubers), the year the user joined (ex: Users that joined in 2008, Users that joined in 2009), a content category such as Gaming YouTubers if they make gaming content, and lastly, subscriber categories for people who have only surpassed one million subscribers or more. Acceptable Million Subscriber categories are: 1 Million – 5 Million, then in intervals of 5 Million each time (ex. 10 million, then 15 million, etc.).

More categories be added later on, but for now these are the only ones that can be added.

Make sure to only use existing categories, apart from the Nationality category, where you can add a nationality only if the nationality has not ever been listed before as a category. Ensure that the same "[Nationality] YouTubers" format is used if decided to do so.

Other Acceptable Categories:

Additionally, do not add categories to non-YouTube Channel articles – that is an Administrative action only.

If any other categories are added they will be deleted.

Starting February 1, 2017 onwards, if you add a category we don't currently use, regardless as to what page is, you will be blocked for a day. If blocked for the third time for it, you will proceed to be banned.

Images

All images used on the wiki must be named in a way that explains or describes the picture.

For example, if the picture is of Felix Kjellberg from PewDiePie, rename it to be PewDiePie.png. If that's taken, you can change the file format to a .jpg, or rename it to PewDiePieIRL.png, PewDiePieIcon.png, or something similar, as long as it's relevent.

This is to keep the wiki organized, as well as to avoid image duplicates, help with the creation of galleries, and making image searching significantly easier.

The action is very simple to do. When you go to upload an image, view the picture to name it properly:

Explanatory Picture Renaming

Click to enlarge.

Additionally, please do not upload duplicates of the same image. This wastes space and clutters the wiki. If you have a higher quality version of an image, click on it to head to its image page and click "upload a new version of this file." This will keep the image title the same and replace all existing versions with your new image.

Fanart is also not acceptalbe on the wiki. Offical logo images or real images are acceptable, but, in order to respect Creative Commons laws, the Wiki will NOT allow fanart.

If a picture on the wiki does not follow these rules, they will be deleted. You will also receive a warning the first time it is noticed by an admin, and if it happens after that you will receive a 1 day ban from the wiki. Another day will be added if the rule proceeds to be broken each time after.

Creating a Page

When making a page, please keep in mind this wiki is predominantly trying to add channels that make videos and have somewhat of subscriber following in order to maintain a quality standard. This isn't to say that if the page doesn't have a large number of subscribers it's not going to be on here, but we do have to draw the line somewhere.
You may not have channels that don't make any videos or have less than 500 subscribers, or else your page will be deleted.

  • When adding a page, please don't just add a small sentence that says something about subscribing to this channel or just have the link. Please add some information (about a paragraph at least) about the channel, the person and anything else you can think of. Pages that don't follow this format will be deleted.
  • One page per YouTube Channel/Person. All information can be added on one page. If a person has multiple channels, they must also be added to the same page unless an admin changes it.
  • Please note that we should always have pages in English.
  • Please write facts, not your opinion of the channel, or otherwise heavily biased content.

Do not insert birthdays you find on famousbirthdays.com. They have been known to give out false information.

Starting from June 7, 2017, if you add a channel that has less than the required subscriber limit (500), you will be blocked. First block = 1 day, second block = 2 days, and third block = banned. 

Additionally, if you add a page with no information (YouTuber info box is not included) you will be blocked as well. The same rules apply if you add a channel with less than 500 subscribers.

Rude Behavior

Both rude behavior and hate speech will NOT be tolerated under any circumstance. This wiki is both an informative and safe place for users and creators alike – and measures to prevent such a place will result in a very lengthy ban.

What is hate speech? Hate speech is NOT stating that you dislike a YouTuber or critiquing their work, or any other comment without a positive connotation – but is any speech or display that attacks, threatens, or insults a person or group.

Rude behavior is a much simpler topic – be kind to others while using the wiki. This includes limiting curse/mature words. People of all ages view YouTube, and as such, people of all ages are permitted to view the wiki. Comments considered creepy (such as saying "I know where this YouTuber lives!" or "I have their Skype, if you want it" are an invasion of a YouTubers privacy and also should not be left on an article, or in the comments.

Depending on the comment considered "rude", users will be given a warning from an admin to a ban. This will up to the admin's discretion.

Spam

If you are found adding spam, unwanted, or untrue statements on a user page (unless you have 100% proof to back it up), you might be given a warning or may be blocked on the spot it depends on the situation. If you do get a warning and it happens again you will be blocked from the wiki. It will be up to the admin for how long you will be blocked.

Blocked vs. Banned

Being blocked and being banned are two different things.

If you are blocked, that means that you can come back on the wiki after a certain amount of time.

If you are banned, that means you are not allowed edit on the wiki anymore and your username will receive a ban of infinite duration. If you have been blocked three times on the wiki, you will be banned. This rule does not include the spam rule.

Usernames

If you are using the name of a YouTuber in your username (popular or not) you will be blocked. Having the name of a YouTuber in this wiki could lead someone to think that their favorite YouTuber is on the site and could tarnish their name, spread false information, and so on. It is only acceptable if the word "Fan" or something similar is at the end of the name (such as, "PewDiePieFan"), indicating you are not the named YouTuber.

Blogs Rules

Wikitubia Blogs are how the community interacts with each other. However, there are some rules to be followed, or you will end up with severe blocking or even bans.

  • No spamming, spamming on blog posts are taken as a serious offence and it well not be tolerated. If you spam, you well recieve a 1 week block and your blog post well be deleted. If repeated again, an infinite ban.
  • No Hate speech, hate speech is often times very annoying and brings the worst in all users. If you are seen doing this action you well recieve a 1 day block and if repeated again, a week block, further until you get banned.
  • Swearing is allowed, unless used in a hostile way, such as harassment towards other users. Staff will not tolerate this and can give you an immediate ban.
  • No Harassing, harassing other users is a serious offence. Users will be banned on the first sight of these messages (though message wall talking will still be enabled, so if you want to discuss the situation with an admin, do as you please).

Privacy

Here on Wikitubia we try to respect the content creators privacy. If anyone is caught adding the home address (regardless if it is real or fake) you will be banned. Adding last names are allowed but if we get messages from creators requesting us to not publicly show their last name, we will honor that request. If someone is adding a last name to a page where the creator has asked us not to add it (again, regardless if it is real or fake), they will be banned.


This wiki is for YouTube Channels predominately. Unless an admin adds or approves of it, all pages that are not about a YouTube channel or highly relevant to YouTube will be given 24 hours or days to change it appropriately, and if not done, will be deleted.

Admins will have the final say on how the pages look. There is a certain layout in which articles are organized on each page, please use other pages as examples on how the article should look (for example, take a look at Tanya ZhangPewDiePie and Tobuscus pages for reference). Refer to those pages and ensure the page you're making at least looks similar to those.

When naming the page, please remember that the wiki goes by whatever the name used is on the official YouTube channel itself.

If there are any other questions, contact one of our admins.
