The Geometry Dash Fan Wiki enforces several policies applying to behaviour and the use of site features. This extends across all local namespaces as well as the Chat and Discussions platforms.
This wiki abides by Fandom's policy, requiring full compliance on behalf of its users.Community Central.
A user who displays unacceptable conduct may be blocked by an administrator in response to their behaviour, preventing them from editing and performing other actions. Valuing common sense is the underlying principle in avoiding being blocked. Everyone, including staff, is subject to compliance by the content stated in this section.
- Staff have complete authority in determining a block's duration based on the misconduct displayed.
- Warnings are issued to inform a user of their violation of the policy where it is considered that they were oblivious of their actions.
- Block duration will increase with subsequent blocks.
- Blocks may be reduced or lifted at any time without notification.
As a way for staff to be in control of the content that the community add to the wiki daily, the staff require that articles match relevance criteria to determine significant attributes of the subject in question so people can describe them as their common interest, therefore showing relevancy, and thus be a viable consideration for having an article created about it. Any member who believes in good faith that the staff has wrongly removed an article will have to file a claim to any of the administrators of the wiki, whom will try their best to respond as soon as possible. Manners, cordiality and respect are strictly necessary when doing so, else the staff will not deliver a response regarding the subject article. INTRODUCTION 1.

EXT In the matter of deletions, it is important for the staff to make sure that all the articles, media and content submitted to the wiki are in good standing for those who view them, which includes the public acceptance of said content, and the understanding of the morals that shaped Geometry Dash’s community and the game. This wiki functions as an information source for the public about Geometry Dash and its related content, and the information within it must be kept focused on the matter. However, in many cases, the addition of several media or information may not be morally correct and clash with the values of those who read the wiki, such as: • Intimate details of an individual • Accusations of illegal activities • Claims that affect an individual’s public stance • Expressing subjective or objective discontent for an individual’s choices • Community’s animosity towards an individual The existence of these in an article, depending on the severity of the claim (legality of actions) will result in the removal of the article, or the segment. The criteria that constitutes the severity of actions are as follows: • Severe: claims of illegal activities that affect minors, minorities, and the physical and mental health of people. All acts of felonies fall under this category. • Mild: claims of irregular activities that constitute a virtual risk to the subject in question and the people around them, and the encouragement of said actions. • Light: claims of actions that do not pose a threat to the people around them and claims of personal choices that don’t represent a substantial shift in community’s opinion towards the individual, such as issues in real life. Severe claims will result in the deletion of the article altogether. Mild claims will result in a protected article. Light claims will result in a rewording of the article.
Pages may be deleted without warning or marked for deletion by members of the community. Articles that meet these criteria are, but not limited to:
- Articles completely unrelated to Geometry Dash or of low significance
- Articles that showcase uncompleted level designs
- Articles that showcase unrated levels as a form of advertisement of their own. If a user wishes to create an article of their level, they ought to create a complete draft of their article in their Sandbox for further approval by the staff

- Articles in which the person starred is not of importance. If a user wishes to create an article of their persona, they ought to create a complete draft of their article in their Sandbox for further approval by the staff
