    The World of Fortnite Guidelines

    Welcome to the World of Fortnite forums. In this section, you will find and are encouraged to share all manner of Lore, Character Story, Background and other such content that will help build and expand upon the World of Fortnite itself. I am happy to welcome content written from both the Out of Character perspective and general lore conversation as well as player created In Character conversation and story threads.
    • Please refrain from grammar and spelling corrections unless they are specifically asked for.
    • Please do not give feedback unless the content creator has specifically asked for it. Stay positive.
    • Please remember that we are part of a global community. Not everyone will share English as their primary language.

    Forum Guidelines
    • The Fortnite forums are for discussion of topics directly related to Fortnite.
      • The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to Fortnite, Epic Games, or its community are subject to moderation.
    • Vulgarity, Negativity and Threats
      • Excessive vulgarity is frowned upon and is subject to moderation. Excessive negativity and fear mongering is frowned upon and is subject to moderation. Any threats to a member of our community, Epic Games as a company or an Epic Games Employee will be removed, and in extreme cases, we will contact the appropriate authorities.
    • Creating a thread topic that calls out a member of the Epic Games community or an Epic Games employee in a thread topic is frowned upon.
      • The discussion should be focused on game related subjects. Starting a discussion about an individual violates this guideline and is subject to moderation.
    • Petition posts are frowned upon.
      • These are discussion forums and, as such, we ask that you hold discussions. Creating a thread to ask for replies as votes is not a discussion. Threads violating this guideline are subject to moderation.
    • Do not post about locked or deleted threads.
      • Each post that is moderated has a reason behind it. We will do our best to fully explain why an action has been taken. From that point, It's up to you to read the forum guidelines and determine what you did wrong. You may post again, but make sure you do not violate any of the forum guidelines.
    • Take personal arguments off the forums
      • No one wants their thread to turn into a personal argument between a few individuals. If you disagree with someone in a constructive and on-topic way, then your post is totally acceptable. If your comment is directed at putting down another individual, the post is subject to moderation.
    • Hate Speech
      • We have a zero tolerance policy on personal attacks directed at any person or group of people on the basis of gender, religion, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. These posts will be immediately removed. You are subject to suspension/permanent ban based on the severity of the comment.
    • Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, and/or non-standard symbols, etc.
      • We ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. If you have a good idea or engaging topic of discussion, people will naturally participate in your thread. Threads violating this guideline are subject to moderation.
    • Posting "First" or IBTL ("in before lock") constitutes as spamming.
      • Commenting IBTL adds nothing to a discussion and is not a helpful way of determining if a topic is constructive or not. If you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so or reach out to a community leader/community team member.
    • Bumping a thread
      • This is generally frowned upon. Please don't bump your thread.
    • Off Topic
      • We will be actively moderating and moving threads, comments and posts that are off topic.
