Before you join the site, you will most definitely want to read these rules to get a sense of what Queerpedia is about, including content limitations and suggestions. These rules are subject, and not set in stone, allowing for some leeway in staff initiation of these rules. Violation of a rule will typically only result in a warning, however, multiple warnings will result in a strike.

Queerpedia runs off a three strike system, and after accumulating three strikes, a user will be banned for a period of 1 month, and have all staff positioned removed (although, on good behavior, maybe be reinstated after a probation period. Strikes are reset on the Summer and Winter solstices.

More problematic behavior, however, such as trolling and spam, may result in a quickban by staff until a situation is settled. Such quickbans are likely to result in a permaban, and sockpuppetting (creating multiple accounts, usually to avoid ban evasion) will result in a permanent blocking of the IP address.

Ban appeals are currently not ongoing at this time.


This page does contain mention of explicit and/or triggering content. Please be advised.

1. Be Kind

a. Bigotry of any kind will not be accepted.
This includes racism, sexism, ableism, hate speech, discrimination, pro-fascist ideology, and other such hateful activities.

b. Homophobia and Transphobia will result in an immediate three strikes
Queerpedia is designed to be an inclusive safe space for the ENTIRE LGBTQIA+ community, and as such, intentional and malicious homophobia and transphobia will result in swift punishment.

c. Uncivil arguments with other members or staff
While everyone is free to discuss their opinions (presuming those opinions are not invalidating of others identities or experiences) and engage in civil debate and argument, such activities as harassment, name-calling, and deconstructive criticism is unwelcome and will result in a strike.

d. Brigading
Brigading, or the act of having multiple users upvote, downvote, or comment on an article for ant other reasons than its actual merits will result in strikes for all participating members, and possibly a quickban or multiple strikes for the instigators.

2. Keep it Clean

Works that delve into potentially triggering topics should have a Content Warning included, so that. This includes (but is not limited too):

  • Depictions of queerphobia, racism, ableism, or other bigotry
  • Graphic violence or gore
  • Graphic sexual content
  • Depictions of disordered eating/starvation
  • Descriptions or discussion of taking one's own life
  • Self Harm
  • Sexual Assault
  • Body horror, dysmorphia and physical dysphoria
  • Religious trauma/Cult involvement

While explicit works are allowed, to a certain extent, works should be marked with one of three age ratings: General, Mature, and Explicit. General is work generally palatable to anyone with an internet access, Mature is content designed for anyone about the age of 15, and Explicit is content depicting explicit sexual acts. These should be tagged accordingly.

b. Pornography is strictly prohibited
While images and artwork are allowed, as are some explicit written works, anything deemed by staff to be pornographic in nature will be subsequently deleted and the author reprimanded. Illegal forms - as with ANY form of illegal content - will result in an instant permaban.

3. Content and Writing Restrictions

While Queerpedia respects the freedom of expression in an author or creative, we in return expect the freedom to be used tastefully, and in a way not disruptive to others. As a result, we have enabled some rules to optimize user enjoyment.

a. Artistic Merit in Explicit Content
Works on Queerpedia, while allowed to be explicit, should only be explicit for good reason. Low-effort erotica and other such works are henceforth banned. This includes works involving graphic description of non-consensual explicit acts, including pedophilia, zoophilia, or incest. While these topics are certintly alright for discussing through writing, graphic descriptions are not. Before adding explicit content into your work, ask yourself: "Does this add to the quality of my work, or take away from it?"

b. Fanfiction
Here on Queerpedia, we love fanfiction. Feel free to write any your heart desires, provided it falls within the rules. However, all fanfiction, fanart, and other fan works must fall underneath fair use, and be compliant with CC 3.0.

c. Editing and Collaboration
Please do not edit other creators works without consent, with the exception of some mild SPaG work. Collaborations are allowed, however, all authors are to be credited.

D. Artwork
Queerpedia, despite its orientation towards written media, is also a place to share your artistic creations as well. However, all artwork MUST be your own, or used with explicit consent and credit to the author.

E. AI Generated Content.
Our rules around this topic are the same as the SCP Wiki's (at the time of writing): "Articles containing AI-generated text are not allowed. However, the use of tools which use AI or AI-adjacent scripting in their operation (such as Grammarly, DeepL or GPT) to assist with grammar, critique, translation and idea generation is allowed." Allowing a language learning model to drain the creativity out of such a uniquely human process is absurd, and against Queerpedia's values.

4. Misc. Stuff

a. Age Limit
You must be 15 or older to join this side. Being discovered underage will result in a ban until your 15th birthday.
