Welcome to Deus Ex Answers. What would you like to know?

The Deus Ex Answers poicies and guidelines are here to provide a comprehensive frame work for the "do's and "don't's" and best practices for editors of this wiki.


Policies are a set of general rules that all user must abide by, regardless of site status. The policies are here to standardize the site and establish basic criteria for all content and rules.

User conduct Edit

  • Be civil: If there is a disagreement, talk it out politely without swearing or insulting the other party. It is not only what you say, but also how you say it. This also goes for answering questions. If a question is considered "stupid", do not insult the asker of the question. This site was created to help users learn about the Deus Ex universe, not to help users get insulted.
  • User pages: User pages are considered the property of the respective user and thus should not be edited by anyone but the user themselves. You may put anything you would like on your user page (as long as you do not violate common rules of decency or insult other users).
  • User talk pages: User talk pages are pages that allows users to message each other back and forth. Again, when discussing on talk pages, be civil.

Asking a question Edit

  • Use The Deus Ex Wiki: To the left of the 'Community' tab is a link to our sister site, the Deus Ex wiki. Most questions can easily be answered by searching this wiki.
  • Use the seach box: If your question is not answered after searching the Deus Ex wiki, search your query in the Search box below the green "Ask" button. It is very likely that someone has already asked a similar question before you.
  • Asking the question: After having checked Deus Ex wiki and searched your query, if you have no conclusive results, you may ask your question in the query box. When asking, remember to ask in a complete sentence with proper grammar, while being as specific as possible. Vague and statement questions will be deleted.
  • Forum questions: A "forum question" is a question that has no definite answer and is often asked to gauge the opinions of other users. Please refrain from asking these questions in the mainspace. Rather, ask them in our forum. There you may ask question that relates to the Deus Ex series and get many different opinions on a topic. This is the place to ask broad speculation questions, such as future games and future add-ons as well as questions such as 'Character X vs. Character Y'. Additionally, it includes questions like "What is the best game/weapon/apparel/etc.".

Answering a question Edit

  • Only add additional information when it's needed: If another user added it before you, it is not needed to say it again.
  • Linking to the Deus Ex wiki: Being able to link question to articles on the Deus Ex wiki is a very important tool. It allows an asker to go to the link and learn even more about a subject, if they so desire. Linking can be done by typing: [[w:c:deusex:XXX|XYZ]], where 'XXX' is the article on the Deus Ex wiki you would like to link to and 'XYZ' is what words you want the link to appear in.
  • Question deletion: If a question goes against policy and/or is outside the scope of the Deus Ex universe, simply mark it with {{delete|your reason}} and an administrator will take care of it.
  • Spelling and grammar: Use proper spelling and grammar whenever possible to convey your answer in a way everyone can read it.

Modding consolesEdit

  • Deus Ex Answers Wiki will not support any form of hacking, cracking, piracy, editing, downloading or anything that would violate the End User Licence Agreement, legal mod sites Terms of Service, or any other copyright laws in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom or other areas. Nations that do not have copyright laws are NOT exempt from this rule. Any sensible mod site will ban you on the spot. Modding of XBOX will get you permanently banned on XboxLive.
Deus Ex Answers Wiki members will never direct you to any console modding sites, or ways to un-ban your console. Any discussion of a positive nature to this, will result in ALL party members being removed from this site, forever, regardless of site status. Any person who asks for illegal hacks, cracks, downloads, and mods will be forever removed from the site, regardless of status.
  • These rules have no exceptions, no warnings, and no second chances.


Guidelines describe the desired ediquette and common practice on this wiki. The guidelines are here to make the wiki easier for both editors and reader alike and to make its appearance more uniform and consistent.

Asking questions Edit

  • Trolling: Don't ask questions for the sake of trying to get a reaction out of people. It will result in a block.

Answering questionsEdit

  • Signing your posts: Signing your post is completely unnecessary. Your contributions are well logged in both your contributions tab on your user page, as well as in the questions history.
  • Don't feed the troll: If you witness a troll question, put a delete tag on it (instructions above) and then leave it alone. If the troll doesn't get a reaction, it will die.


  • Whenever vandalism is witnessed, revert the edit and report the vandal to an administrator as soon as possible. This ensures the vandal will be blocked from the site and not be allowed to disrupt any more pages. Vandalism can be defined as inserting gibberish or false information into a page, inserting swear words into pages or moving pages to an inappropriate page name.
