In accordance to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), users under the age of 13 are not allowed to edit on the wiki. If a user is revealed to be underage, please report it to an administrator with evidence. An underage user will be blocked until they are of legal age to contribute (13 or older).

General rules

  • Vandalism, trolling, spamming, discriminative, and not safe for work (NSFW) content are all strictly prohibited.
    • Discriminative content includes: hatespeech, ethnic slurs, or any hateful action directed towards people based on their orientation, gender, race, etc.
    • Not safe for work (NSFW) content includes: sexual or explicit content; generally anything that would be disallowed in a school or workplace.
      • NSFW discussion can be had if its done in the context of science, such as human anatomy. Keep in mind that admins are allowed to shut down these conversations at any time.
    • Please report vandalism to an admin if it has not already been dealt with. It is also highly appreciated for any user to help and undo vandalistic edits. Vandals can be reported here
  • Please be respectful and civil to other users. Do not disrespect, offend, threaten, insult, or argue with other users.
    • If you wish to have a discussion with another user over conflicting view-points, please keep it a civil debate. Admins are allowed to end these discussions at any time if they start to get out of hand.
  • No swearing. Leniency may be given for this rule in the future, but as of now, any kind of swear word (other than crap) is disallowed on this wiki, even if it is censored or shortened in any way.
  • Listen to the staff. If a staff member asks you to stop doing something that is considered harmful or disruptive, please do so.
  • No hacking. Don't use hacking of any type, not even for something little. If it is about editing a protected page, message staff.

Editing

Articles & Images

  • Stick to the topic of this wiki: Only create articles about topics related to the graphic novels, tv-series and other Hilda media. Also, only upload images related to the Hilda franchise. Any off-topic articles and images will be deleted. Repeatedly creating off-topic articles or uploading off-topic images can result in a ban from this wiki.
  • Articles are for canon: The article spaces are only for canon facts and material. We do tolerate fan-made material like fanfics/art, but these can only be posted in your own blog space, user page and discussion posts. Speculations and fan theories should likewise be kept to your own blog space, user page or the discussion pages.  Also, do not link to your fan-works from the articles.
  • Layout: Please follow the guidelines on Hilda A Netflix Original Series Wiki:Manual of Style for creating and editing articles.
  • Do not add false information.. It can mislead others, and this is supposed to be a legit and serious wiki. Cite sources where possible.
  • No duplicate content: Check to make sure that you are not creating a page that already exists or is identical to another, or upload an image we already have. Duplicate pages and images will be deleted.
  • When editing, do not make something centered around your opinion.
  • No unnecessary editing: Unnecessary editing is classified as making edits that make no contribution to the page whatsoever, often only done to gain credit and badges. This is not allowed. These edits are:
    • Rewording sentences for no genuine reason
    • Taking periods off sentences and putting them back on
    • Taking off information and then putting it back on
    • Adding the same information in different ways
  • No irrelevant categories: do not add irrelevant or unnecessary categories into pages.
    • If you find that a user has added irrelevant or unnecessary categories into pages, please remove them.
    • If an admin removes a category that you have added to a page, do not revert the edit as this has been done either for the reason stated above or for another reason.
  • Edits should be constructive and have a certain level of effort.

User Pages

  • Users are free to customize their profiles as they see fit, as long as the content doesn’t conflict with the rules on this page.
  • Do not edit another user’s profile without their permission!. It is considered rude.
    • The only time it is acceptable to edit another user’s profile is to undo vandalism, or to remove content that violates the rules stated on this page.

Staff rules

These are the rules made specifically for the wiki's staff. If a staff member breaks any of these rules, please report it to the bureaucrat or a trusted admin, with evidence, so the situation may be taken care of.


  • Admins are not to abuse their powers in any way. Their actions should only be to benefit the wiki and not themselves. Administrators are in no way above normal users on the wiki, and are simply users entrusted with powerful editing tools. If an admin is caught abusing their powers, they will be demoted and potentially blocked depending on the severity of the situation.
  • Any staff member is eligible for demotion if they are inactive for a long enough period of time. There is no set date for how long a staff member can stay inactive before being automatically demoted due to the circumstances. The amount of time it takes will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
