The SmashWiki Discord server is a chat outlet that saves chat history (which in turn means that users can pass messages to users who are not online). It replaces the now-obsolete IRC channel system.


  1. Be respectful.
    • Do not personally attack other members of this server.
    • If someone asks you to stop a legitimately concerning behavior, do it.
    • Respect other users' privacy and do not pester them.
  2. Don't spam.
    • Long messages should be posted via pastebin.
    • Images and videos are to be kept on-topic and at a minimum. Additionally, memes are to be directed to the dedicated channel for them: #meme-cavern.
  3. Never post graphic or pornographic imagery.
    • This includes both image uploads and links. This is a violation of both Discord's and SmashWiki's policies, and doing so will result in an immediate ban.
    • The proverbial line of what is acceptable and what isn't is entirely up to administrators and chat operators.
  4. Avoid offensive language.
    • Overt and excessive sexuality, profanity, and violence is discouraged.
    • Prejudice or libelous comments or images towards races, ethnic groups, sexual orientations, and genders are prohibited.
    • Use of the spoiler tag does not dismiss this rule.
  5. Administrators and operators are the boss.
    • Users are to do what they say.
    • Any request or action taken by an operator can be appealed to an administrator.
    • Appealed decisions are still to be followed as the appeal is discussed.
  6. Stay on topic.
    • Users are expected to stay on the topic of the channel they are on. Any request by an administrator or operator asking for a conversation to be moved to a more appropriate channel must be followed.
    • Discussions should remain on topics that the majority of people agree on. Discussions should not be continued if the majority of people are not interested in continuing it.
  7. Do not comment on a game-specific channel just to bash on the game.
    • If you are not interested in the game in question, please just mute the channel. Honest criticisms are fine, "this game freaking sucks" is not.
  8. Do not ask for administrator status.
    • Only SmashWiki administrators are granted administrator status.
    • Other users can request for chat operator status if they wish, where they will then be judged by other users to determine if they should gain this power. Users who wish to do this should contact an administrator.
  9. Do not evade silencing.
    • Annoying offenses that may not seem ban worthy may get one silenced for a certain period of time.
    • Leaving the server, then rejoining it to get around silencing will result in a permanent ban.
  10. Use an appropriate nickname.
    • Nicknames are available to all users on this server. Any profane or otherwise offensive nicknames will result in a request to have it changed by a chat operator or administrator. This will be followed by a kick from the server should the user not comply within 24 hours.
    • Impersonation of other users is strictly forbidden.
  11. Advertising in this server is generally unacceptable.
    • Users may gain permission from a chat operator or an administrator to advertise an event, group, or product, but must drop the issue entirely if denied.
  12. The Discord server will not be treated as an entirely separate entity from the wiki; should a user be banned from one, they'll be banned from the other. Minor offenses such as a short ban from the Discord server for spamming or a short ban from the wiki for edit warring may not result in the administration applying a ban on both, but longer term bans for more serious offenses on one will not be ignored on the other.
  13. Do not discuss the following banned topics:
    • Religion
    • Politics


  • #welcome: The first channel seen upon joining that lists the rules listed above, and then some.
  • #roles: Where users can assign themselves various roles via reactions.
  • #announcements: Announcements are made here, usually pertaining to Spirit Board events or Event Tourneys, or other important announcements.


  • #general: For just about anything that does not break the above rules, and isn't best suited for other channels.
  • #game-corner: For discussion of video games in general.
  • #live-events: Intended for use alongside live events such as Nintendo Directs, State Of Plays, and The Game Awards, so as to prevent reactions to these events from flooding other channels.
  • #smashwiki: For discussion about any matters involving SmashWiki directly, such as pointing out edits, discussing an article's content, discussing bettering the wiki as a whole, administration concerns, etc. Note that while actions on the wiki can be enacted after discussion on this channel, any major actions, such as deleting/moving/merging/splitting a long-standing article or enacting a change in policy, still requires discussion that has reached consensus on a relevant talk page, and a lack of established talk page consensus can result in the action being repealed. Also note that this channel is exclusive to those with the SmashWiki contributor role.

Smash Discussions

Channels intended primarily for discussion of the Smash games.

Smash Arena

BayonettaSymbol.svg LADIES & GENTS! Come to the Smash Arena and vote on Round 132: Bayonetta vs. Sora! KingdomHeartsSymbol.svg

Our Discord server also features the Smash Arena, a platform to vote on various matchups.

  • #rules: Lists the rules for our Smash Arena. Please read over this first before participating.
  • #smash-arena: Where the voting takes place. Who will win?
  • #discussion: To discuss the current matchup as well as Smash Arena as a whole.
  • #suggestions: For suggesting new Smash Arena matches. Your suggestion must be related to Smash, and please no more than 5 suggestions per person at a time.


Channels intended for discussion of management/business pertaining to the wiki/server themselves.

  • #server-maintenance: The channel best-suited for reporting any issues pertaining to the server, as well as request roles, channels, and emojis.
  • #polls: For polling users about server matters. Channel is read-only for all but admins and operators.
  • #archives: Archives of previous discussion/debate over Requests for Operator and other things.

Bonus Stage

Channels intended for fun discussion/posting of whatever does not pertain to other channels.

  • #trophy-gallery: For showing off art, music, or other creations.
  • #meme-cavern: A channel reserved for incessant posting/discussion of memes and the sort without disrupting general chat. Rules still apply here, however,
  • #online-play: For discussion of online matches between users.
  • #leaks: Meant for discussion about leaks. Obviously fake or joke "leaks" would go in #meme-cavern.
  • #super-smash-maker: For posting your Smash Bros. stage creations.
  • #vc-talk: To be used alongside the voice chat channel to post links and the sort, as well as allow users who do not have access to a microphone or do not wish to use one to interact with other users who are in the voice chat. It is accessible by those with the Confirmed user role.
  • Voice chat: Basically #general but with voice.


  • Administrator: The most permissions of any role, able to make changes to the server at large, monitor channels, and resolve conflicts between other users. Note that this role can only be attained through being an admin/bureaucrat on the wiki; please do not request this role.
  • Chat operator: Monitors channels and resolves conflicts, similarly to an Administrator; by contrast, they don't necessarily have power on the wiki and cannot alter rules or channels. One may apply for a Request for Operator in the server, at which point other users will determine whether they are well-suited for the role, in a process similar to an on-wiki Request for Adminship.
  • SmashWiki contributor: Granted to autoconfirmed users on the wiki, which grants access to several additional channels, most notably #smashwiki. While having an autoconfirmed wiki account is generally required, admins do have the discretion to give the role to any wiki user that hasn't yet obtained autoconfirmation, if the user wants to discuss wiki-relevant matters and an admin deems they are genuine.
  • Competitive contributor: Ping role for users who contribute to competitive Smash information on the wiki. Allows such users to be pinged for competitive-related matters on the wiki without having to ping the rest of the userbase, who may not care about competitive play or would otherwise be unable to give meaningful input.
  • NIWA affiliate: Granted only to the administrative staff of NIWA wikis.
  • Spanish affiliate: Granted only to users of the wiki's Spanish subdomain.
  • Smash Arena: Ping role for those who want to be notified of new Smash Arena matches.
  • Looking for a challenge: Ping role for matchmaking.
  • Confirmed user: Granted to active users without other roles to prevent them from being purged (kicked from the server) for being inactive.
  • Silenced: Used to prevent users from posting as punishment without kicking/banning said users, though it also allows them to read the messages of others.
  • Shame: Users under shame may not access #leaks in any capacity.
  • @everyone: Default role, associated primarily with users that lack a role otherwise.
