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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Do not discuss the following banned topics:
- #welcome: The first channel seen upon joining that lists the rules listed above, and then some.
- #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.
- #serious-topics: For discussion of serious societal issues. Politics rule does not apply here, but users are expected to stay civil.
- #smashwiki: For pointing out edits, discussing bettering the wiki as a whole, administration concerns, etc. Please note that while this channel is for wiki-specific goings-on any argument made for the deletion, moving, merging, protecting, etc of an article on this channel will be disregarded if not discussed on the relevant talk page. Also note that this channel is exclusive to those with the SmashWiki contributor role.

- #bot-commands: A place for bot commands to be used in moderation (i.e. not spammed) without interrupting the flow of conversation. Rules still apply here as well.
- #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 to interact with other users who are in the voice chat. It is accessible by those with the Confirmed user role.
