Here at the Sandman Wiki, all are welcome to contribute to articles and interact with each other to make the wiki a place for fans. The following is a list of overarching guidelines for users to follow in order to help make the wiki a collaborative database.
- Be bold: Give and take opinions, including those who disagree with you, discuss civilly.
- Be civil: Observe civil behavior, and respect other users. Please do not argue, insult, threaten, harass, purposefully offend, or disrespect users or their opinions.
- Respect the staff when they ask you to stop doing something. There is always a reason.
- No personal attacks. FANDOM is not a platform for bullying, intolerance, or slander. Discussion or sharing of sexually explicit content, personal slurs of any kind, or any other form of discrimination will not be tolerated. Likewise, spamming, vandalizing, or trolling on the wiki is strictly prohibited.
- Edit when you can. Do not be discouraged, edit if you feel it is constructive. When in doubt, you can talk it over with the staff on the message wall. If you discuss major changes before you make them, you should reach consensus faster and happier.
- Edit summaries clear and transparent explanations are universally appreciated. Please state what you changed and why.
- Assume good faith; in other words, try to understand that the person on the other end of the discussion is a thinking, rational being who is trying to positively contribute to the project — unless, and only unless, you have firm, solid, and objective proof to the contrary. Merely disagreeing with you is no such proof.
- Avoid edit wars with other users. Avoid outright reverting edits that seem to have been made in good faith unless it is very obvious vandalism. Instead, give respectful criticism so the users can understand and develop their own editing styles in the future.
- Cite your information. Avoid adding theoretical, speculative, or non-canon material to articles.

Articles and templates on the wiki maintain a criteria of their own.
