Whenever you have to make any edit, please read this page before. By editing, you assume you have read and accepted the terms of use, and then you assume the eventual sanctions you may have by not following those rules.

Staff

They are the ones who will help you to achieve your task. Don't hesitate to ask them if you're willing to help. Just make sure that they are active before messaging them (click on "Contributions" in their profile to see the last edits they made).

Chat and Forum Rules

Be a nice cat! Below, you will see the code of conduct that applies to everyone, no matter the situations.

Code of Conduct

  • Be kind with everybody on the wiki. We all have different views and personalities, but you have to respect the whole community even if sometimes you don't agree with someone. This especially matters in off-topic discussions, so whenever you are in an especially heated argument with someone, take the time to reflect on your own actions and ask yourself, "How exactly did we end up here?" and "How can I end this situation in a manner everyone is satisfied with?", as everybody prefers when nobody loses.
  • Do not lie when somebody asks for help, and furthermore, do not scam. This will result into a perma-ban. This means that unless you make yourself explicitly clear that you are joking, you should either refer the asking person to someone you know is knowledgeable about the topic in question, if you are not able to provide an answer yourself.
  • NSFW content is not allowed. ...Do you really laugh at these gross jokes? Posting, uploading, or redirecting NSFW content in any way, shape, or form will end up in you being banned, so do not make or post NSFW content, no matter the context or reason. This is a community, children may be watching, so follow our guidelines.
  • No sock-puppetry. Do not use alternative accounts for malicious intentions or block evasion. If you were blocked, think of what you did wrong and don't do it again. If you do eventually come around and realize what you did wrong, why it was wrong and know you are mature enough to not make a habit of doing it again, then you are welcome in this community.
  • Do not solicit upvotes from threads. This is a community, creating off topic posts both not marked as Off Topic and continuously creating those types of posts will result in a warning and the deletion of the posts in question. This is especially relevant if your posts are not appreciated by the wider community. If you have any hesitance in creating a new post, then put it in your user blog.
  • Do not manhandle, intimidate, or threaten anyone. Nobody deserves that, and nobody likes it. Everyone is equal in the community, and should be treated as such.

Appealing Blocks

If you have been blocked for a bad reason or for something that had been made a larger deal than it really was, then asking one of our current bureaucrats or admins to be unblocked over either Discord or their Message Walls may be a good idea, should you have the ability to; otherwise, contacting an admin through a friend or another user, or should the situation call for it, an alternate account. However, this will not apply to you if:

  • You consistently spam the discussions forum
  • You break one of Fandom's Terms of Use
  • You majorly disrupt the community
  • You are underaged

Guideline of Editing

Each page has its own structure (see below). Read this, and learn from the current pages before editing.

Do not:

  • Do not vandalize pages. Vandalism includes inserting false or misleading information, deleting previously established content, adding unrelated content or categories, alteration of stats, personal opinions or feeling about an enemy, etc.
  • Do not create strategies containing several Uber Rare Cats or Legend Rare Cats. Strategies are meant to help out other people, not to flex your ability to Ubercarry. Keep the maximum amount of required Uber Rare/Legend Rare Cats at 1 in your strategies, but always avoid it when possible. Do you expect that just because you have an Uber, everyone at that point of the game will have that Uber?
  • Do not Add playthroughs of the game as walkthroughs, unless the video you are adding to a page is specifically meant to be and is a guide. This is especially the case if your playthrough has more than one Uber, features a Legend Rare Cat, or has over-levelled units. In a nutshell, this is not the place to advertise your related website, YouTube channel, blog, social media account, etc. If you have a question about whether your link would be welcome, then ask an administrator, bureaucrat, or content moderator.
  • Avoid creating pages without the consent of the admins, especially when there is a new release. We're aware of the new content, if we don't add it, it's for good reason: either we haven't enough information, or we're waiting to not mess with the current set-up.
  • Do not create empty pages. A page is deemed empty when the grammar and the structure are bad or when most sections are missing. When creating a new page, please add categories to make sure we can get back to the page easily and the proper templates to the bottom of the page.
  • Do not create new categories without the seal of approval of our staff, nor add pages to categories that they do not belong to.
  • Do not add unnecessary trivia, or any information that belongs to rumors or speculation. Especially do not add personal feelings or "community content", like: "this is the best cat in their set" or "this stage is infamous for its insane difficulty". The wiki is about objective and official content. If you want to talk about your personal feelings, do it on your user page (blog post), the forum, or other websites.
  • Do not add pointless images to a gallery. By pointless, it means: it doesn't belong to the official files (fanart), it doesn't add any relevant information (description, picture...), etc. If you have any doubt, upload them in a Blog Post.
  • Do not create pages that are about fanmade contents. This website is about the official contents of Battle Cats, so creating pages specifically about fanart or fanmade creations will be deleted. If you wish to share your fanmade contents, then please either put it in your User Blog or in general discussion, marked as Fan-made Contents.

Do:

  • Add a precise URL as a reference (Battle Cats DB being our main source) when there is none.
  • Add relevant pictures and gifs to a gallery (attack animations, special death animations, official art etc...) when there is a lack of them, or upload improved (objectively better, otherwise ask first) versions of the existing ones (see Category:Low Quality Files to find files in need).
  • Add a Stub template to the top of a new page, should it be lacking enough content to be considered semi-complete, or a StrategyNeeded template, if all the page is missing is a strategy section.
  • Check and clean the grammar and syntax of a page, even if it is not a popular one. We want all pages to be given the most attention, regardless of popularity.
  • Add proper strategies (preferably make them requiring one or no Ubers) to Stage pages, as many of them are currently nearly empty. Look at other popular stage pages first and make sure to be using the proper format.
  • Remove unnecessary strategies, unclear strategies and strategies that do not follow the guidelines, or adjust them to make them worth keeping.
  • Reformat pages that are not consistent with other pages in the wiki.
  • Warn someone active from the staff if somebody vandalizes one or more pages, or if they break other major rules, all while providing evidence, if possible.
  • Notice staff by leaving a message or on discussions when there is new/missing content that is not on the wiki yet (having an article).

Important note about creating a new page

Whenever a new update is out in the Japanese version, a bunch of stub pages are randomly created by the community. They are often nearly empty, with only one or two sentences to introduce the new feature, and without categories, resulting in duplicates created thereafter. This is why we ask you to let the staff add those new pages, please. If you want to help, there are already a lot of things to fix. If you really want to add a new page, please read those short basic instructions before.

Cat Unit

   Name of the cat (Japanese script, romaji, EN translation) is a [rarity of the Cat] unlocked by [playing the Rare Cat Capsule/when clearing ... stage/etc.]. It is currently only available in the Japanese version/ It is currently unimplemented in the English version (NB: not always necessary).
  • After that, add the Cat Appearance template and fill it with Normal and Evolved name, and True Form name if it exists. Add pictures by typing the name of your picture (example: picture.png) in the proper fields (make sure you uploaded them beforehand). If you don't have any picture of the cat, type "Unknown.jpg" in the proper fields.
  • Add the Template:Translation and fill it with the names and descriptions found in the Upgrade Menu.
  • Add the stats template and fill it with the stats found in Battle Cats Database.
  • Don't forget to add references at the bottom (URL of the unit in Battle Cats Database) then the Cats template.

Enemy Unit

  • Check the Category:Enemy Units, Category:[Trait] Enemies (Red, Angel, Alien...) to make sure your page doesn't already exist.
  • When creating your page, please start by adding the Stub template. The team will remove the "stub" state later.
  • See the Enemy Structure Page to get an idea on how to structure the page, or, at least, look at a good sample of similar pages and memorize the format.
  • Start with:
   Name of the enemy (Japanese script, romaji, EN translation) is a (trait + enemy) that appears in (areas encountered). It is currently only available in the Japanese version/ It is currently unimplemented in the English version (may not be needed).
  • After that, add the Enemy Info template and fill it with its name, and File:Unknown.jpg between 2 [ ].
  • Add the stats template and fill it with the stats on Battle Cats Database
  • Don't forget to add references at the bottom (URL of the unit on [1]) then the Enemies template.
