What Destinypedia is not

Although Destinypedia works to stay up to date on information regarding the latest content from Bungie, it is also important to note that some users may want to experience the game for themselves firsthand rather than have it revealed to them on the wiki. It is therefore necessary to preserve that experience for such users by limiting the exposure of sensitive content prematurely.

Guidelines for the posting of newly released content

For the purpose of allowing other fans the ability to witness the Destiny experience unmarred, Destinypedia's Spoiler policy dictates the exclusion of plot information from campaigns, novels, and other major sources of canon - with the exception of multiplayer - until such content has been made public by the Developers on the day of the official launch for a major release (i.e. a game, film, or novel) in North America, Europe, or Australia. This, however, excludes official information released by Bungie and Activision prior to launch. It should be noted that the Spoiler policy allows content released officially and directly from the developers and publishers, but restricts official press even if the source is reputable and valid. Leaks, such as cutscenes, story details or gameplay from bootlegged discs, are not allowed under any circumstances. Usernames intentionally featuring spoilers, such as "Character X dies in Game 2", are not acceptable. Users found in violation of this will be required to submit a new, appropriate name.

Starting from the launch date to a month later, the hide spoiler template will be used for those who still haven't had a chance to purchase the product; those who have bought the product will be able to freely read and edit the wiki, albeit following the restrictions listed above.


  1. Violators will be given one official warning on their talk page.
  2. Noncompliance will result in a week-long ban for the user in violation.
  3. Continued violations will result in more severe punitive action, potentially including an indefinite ban.
