LoL Facebook Icon 28 This page documents an official League of Legends Wiki policy.

It is a widely accepted standard that should normally be followed by all editors.


Policies and guidelines have been developed on the League of Legends Wiki to further our goal of creating a freely editable, clear and accurate League of Legends database.

Policies are here for everyone and should be looked to for guidance. Policies have community consensus and apply to all editors. The League of Legends Wiki strives to create a welcoming and fun environment for those who are civil, assume good faith in others, seek consensus in discussions and work towards the goal of creating an increasingly comprehensive database about everything in the ever expanding League of Legends universe.

Policies need to be approached with common sense; adhere to the spirit rather than the letter of the rules, and be prepared to ignore the rules on the rare occasions when they conflict with the goal of improving the wiki.

What are our policies?

Some of the more important polices that are specific to the League of Legends Wiki are listed below, but the full list of policy pages is available here.

Where do our policies come from?

Generally, League of Legends Wiki policies come from one of two sources:

  1. From a standard or good practice that has been followed subconsciously for some time because it is common sense and has become an established precedent.
  2. From a deliberate proposal by a user or a group of users, usually from a forum discussion. Such proposals must achieve full community consensus before being formalized as a policy.

Most of the policies that fall under the first category are derived from similar practices on other wikis.
