Permission Guidelines[edit]

Usage of Information Outside of Ranch Story[edit]

We strongly enforce good referencing etiquette when it comes to our information. Ranch Story Wiki and its staff collect all information from official sources whenever possible. This information collection is done on our own time, and when it comes to collecting official materials to archive, it's paid from our own pockets for the benefit of everyone. Please read the above notices in regards to plagiarism concerns.

If you want to use our information outside of this wiki, be it for journalism, personal use, etc.:

  • Either contact us via our Discord server, or shoot us an email at ranchstoryblog@gmail.com and notify us of your intent to use information
  • Please specify where and how the information will be used
  • Articles and videos which source information from our wiki should have a link back to the section from which the information was retrieved
  • If our information is used in infographics (such as calendars and handy gift guides), please be sure to add "Information was sourced from Ranch Story Wiki" somewhere on the graphic
  • If you wish to repost images from our wiki (such as our scans and personally-edited images), please make sure to add "This image is from Ranch Story Wiki" wherever they are posted
    This excludes images which are from the game themselves (ripped game icons, etc.)

Translations[edit]

Any use of our translations must be approved by the individual(s) who did the translating.

Watermarked Images[edit]

If permission is granted to use any of our watermarked images, please do not remove the watermark.
