Wookieepedia's Discord server is a complement to our IRC channels. Our Discord channels exist primarily to foster communication and cooperation between Wookieepedians rather than being a general Star Wars chat.

If you are a Wookieepedian, interested in becoming one, or just want to chat with us, feel free to join our Discord server!

This page or section is considered an official policy on Wookieepedia.

It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that everyone must follow. Please use the Consensus track to propose changes to this policy.

  1. Be respectful. Our policy on personal attacks applies on Discord just like it applies anywhere on the wiki. Vicious abuse is grounds for sanctions. Everyone should treat each other with kindness and respect.
  2. Maturity counts. While we love to have fun, it is important that we do so in a mature manner. Inappropriate humor, especially humor at the expense of others and sexual humor, is not permitted.
  3. Stay on topic. Users are expected to remain on-topic with respect to each channel's purpose, which is stated at the top of each channel. Real-world politics and/or religion may only be discussed in relation to the Star Wars franchise.
  4. Our official language is English. While we welcome users and readers from all over the world, English should be used at all times so that everyone in the server can understand and participate in the conversation.
  5. No spamming. Don't say the same thing over and over because no one is responding to you. Respect that the other people in the server may simply not be interested in the topic and move on. It's ok if everyone else doesn't share your passion for the topic. Similarly, please do not randomly ping or mention other members if they are not participating in or relevant to the discussion.
  6. No roleplaying. By and large, regulars find roleplaying to be distracting. We are here to be productive and have constructive dialogue.
  7. Do not delete messages. Users may not delete their own messages from any channel. Any messages that have been deleted are recorded in Wookieepedia's official audit log.
  8. No rumors or leaks. If it is not announced through official Disney, Lucasfilm, or partner publisher or developer channels, then it should not be discussed on the server.
  9. Regarding VIPs. Anyone with the VIP role, denoted by a red name, is not to be pinged or sent a friend request for any reason without their express consent. A list of individuals with the VIP role who have given their permission for users to ping them can be found pinned in the main #wookieepedia channel. Please note that this permission applies solely to verified users. Please be respectful and do not ask for insider information, as not only are they not at liberty to discuss, this may lead to them leaving. Do not share fanfiction or suggestions with them, as in some cases they are prohibited from accepting it.

Additionally, Discord's Terms of Service must be followed at all times.

The standard sanctions for dealing with violators of the rules are as follows. As on Wookieepedia, sanctions undertaken by administrators while acting as a server moderator fall under Administrative autonomy.

  1. Warning. Directed at the violator by an administrator.
  2. Kicking. Should only occur when policy violations, spamming, trolling, and similar transgressions are sufficiently obvious and continuous.
  3. Banning. When all other options fail, individuals may be banned entirely from our Discord.
  4. Wiki sanctions. In extreme cases, administrators may issue on-wiki sanctions, namely blocking, to users whose Discord behavior proves to be an egregious disturbance.


All Wookieepedia administrators are granted the "administrators" role on the Discord server by virtue of their on-wiki sysop privileges. Likewise, all bureaucrats are granted the "bureaucrats" role. No administrator may modify another administrator's access privileges (also known as permissions), either temporarily or permanently, without a majority of the Wookieepedia administration in support.

Administrators may grant server moderator status to non-administrators in channels as circumstances merit, but non-administrator moderators must submit to the direction of administrative operators in issues of channel management.

Discussions moderators have certain moderation privileges, particularly in those channels open to unverified users.

Chat logs

Chat logs from all public Wookieepedia Discord channels are considered part of the public record and may be freely publicly disseminated on the wiki. However, chat logs from private Wookieepedia Discord channels may not be publicly shared in any manner without the express consent of all parties involved in the log's discussion(s). Likewise, Direct Messages on Discord involving one or more Wookieepedia users may not be publicly shared in any manner without the express consent of both or all parties involved in the discussion(s). The preceding privacy protections do not apply to unregistered users, users banned from Wookieepedia, or users who have not edited Wookieepedia in more than five (5) years.

Getting verified

To access channels outside the lobby, you must be verified by an administrator. To be eligible for verification, you need a registered Fandom account with over 50 edits on Wookieepedia. You can check your personal edit count here.

  1. Join the server.
  2. Check your edit count here: Only Wookieepedians with over 50 edits are eligible for verification.
  3. Confirm your ownership of the Discord account: You may choose to do this using one of the three methods listed:
    1. Add your Discord username in your global userpage masthead
    2. Add the {{User discord}} userbox to your userpage, including your Discord username
    3. Add your Discord username somewhere on your userpage
  4. Request verification on Discord: This can be done in two ways:
    1. If you used method 1: Send !wiki verify <username> (replace <username> with your Wookieepedia username) in #request-verification. You will be automatically verified if you have at least 50 edits on the wiki.
    2. If you used method 2 or 3: Send a link to your userpage in the #request-verification channel. An administrator will manually verify you.

Once verified, you will be granted the "wookieepedians" role and your Discord nickname will be changed to match your Fandom account name. You will also gain access to the rest of the server.


WookieeNights are semi-regular video watch parties where editors can relax and get to know one another in a less formal setting. Editors can chat in the text channel and, if they choose, the voice channel as well. Information on the scheduling and rules of WookieeNights can be found here.
