    Fortnite Forum Rules

    Welcome to the Fortnite forums! We want all members of our forums to openly discuss all aspects of the game while building relationships with your fellow community members. We ask that all members please follow these simple forum rules in order to create an atmosphere where everyone feels welcome. If posts do not meet the rules and guidelines set out below, they may be removed by forum staff. We may also take further action, including bans, against any community member that continuously breaks the rules. If you feel a post violates the forum rules, don’t hesitate to use the flag post tool to report it.

    Forum Rules (TLDR Version):

    • Post in the correct section.
    • Search before posting a new topic.
    • Be descriptive and use accurate titles.
    • Keep it on-topic and game related.
    • Keep it appropriate.
    • Be patient and polite as possible.

    • Post in all CAPS, large fonts, or bold text.
    • Post petition topics.
    • Post personal information.
    • Bump threads excessively.
    • Post in very old threads.
    • Be inappropriate, rude, troll, flame, or shame other community members.
    • Impersonate other forum members.
    • Post advertisements or solicitations of any kind.
    • Ask forum members or staff for in-game content or V-Bucks.
    Forum Rules (Long Version):

    Personal Conduct; No Toxic Behavior: All Fortnite community members must conduct themselves in a way that is at all times respectful of other community members. Members may not behave in a manner which violates the forum rules or which is otherwise harmful to the enjoyment of our forums by other members as intended by Epic (as decided by forum staff). In particular, community members may not engage in harassing or disrespectful conduct, use of abusive or offensive language, or any other toxic behavior on our forums.

    Advertising: This is not the place to promote or sell your product or service. Posts attempting to solicit anything and everything will be removed. Repeat offenders will be banned. This includes but is not limited to:
    • Advertising services offered by you, another individual or company.
    • Advertising for product sales of any and all kinds (including deals and discounts).
    • Fortnite account trading/selling.
    • Self-promotion for streaming, speculative videos, click-bait, and/or other content seen as channel promotion. Videos supporting as guides, tips, tricks, or showing off are allowed.

    Asking for Game Content: Posts asking for in-game content will be removed and repeat offenders will be banned. This includes but is not limited to:Demands/Threats: We encourage community members to share feedback and requests with us, but demands and/or threats of any kind will not be tolerated and will be taken very seriously if they do occur.

    Inappropriate Content: Any content that we consider inappropriate (in our sole discretion) will not be permitted on the Fortnite forums. Inappropriate content includes, but is not limited to, any content that:
    • Contains or advocates illegal or violent threats or acts;
    • Contains pornography or any other adult-only topics and/or materials;
    • Is discriminatory, harassing, or otherwise hateful in nature;
    • Infringes upon or violates the copyrights, trademarks or other intellectual property rights of any person or entity;
    • Promotes the use of in-game hacks, cheating, exploits, or in-game currency farming (this does not include reporting bugs in the appropriate subforums); or
    • Otherwise violates applicable law.
    Personal Attacks: Please keep all comments and discussion constructive. Disagreements can and will happen, however we will not tolerate posts that are out of line. Threads, comments or posts that are offensive, attack an individual or group (including “naming-and-shaming,” trolling, baiting, or flaming), or are not relevant to a topic (in each case as determined by forum staff) will be removed.

    In particular, we will not tolerate attacks on any person or group of people on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, political opinion or any other opinion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, or any other status or characteristic protected under applicable law.

    Impersonation: Any impersonation of another person, including Epic employees or representatives, or other community members, is strictly prohibited.

    Personal Information: Please do not share any personal information on the forums for any reason. This is to help protect your privacy, as well as the privacy of other community members.

    Thread Titles: Please be descriptive when creating thread titles, but do not use the names of Epic employees or other community members when doing so. (If you need to contact a specific community member, please send them a private message.)

    Petitions/Protests: Petitions, protests, and other boycott-related discussions do not contribute to meaningful and constructive discussion on our forums and, as a result, are not permitted.

    Spamming: Please do not post the same content in multiple locations on the forums. On a few occasions it may make sense to cross-post, but if we find it not be appropriate the posts will be removed. The quality of the content will help improve the visibility on a post, so post wisely and in the correct location within the forum.

    Bumping Threads: Bumping threads is not permitted, as this doesn’t add to forum discussion in a meaningful or constructive way.

    Disciplinary Actions: We are happy to discuss any questions you may have regarding disciplinary action we have taken on the Fortnite forums, but you must contact a moderator via private message to do so (we do not discuss disciplinary action on the forums). Please note that we cannot assist with in-game violations on the forums, so please visit and contact support with any questions about an in-game disciplinary action.
