We've overhauled the Genre Listing to better serve as a reader-first story navigation portal, rather than an editor-first rules page. We hope this will better serve the needs of casual wiki visitors and encourage them to explore our genre categories as a navigation feature while also serving as a quick reference guide for users to categorize their own stories.
As such, information regarding the M4R and M4D tags and other wiki administrivia has been removed from the Genre Listing. This information is still available at Creepypasta Wiki:Site Rules/Genre Listing and Categories, which has also been reorganized for clarity. The Genre Listing will now serve primarily as a story navigation portal while "Genre Listing and Categories" will be our ed…Read more >
Hello, your friendly neighborhood night owl here. As many of you have probably noticed, this wiki is creeping up on 12 thousand story pages very shortly.

Recently, myself and the other admins decided to revisit the ban on lost episode stories and haunted gaming stories and concluded that it is time for an update.
Historically, we have banned lost episode and haunted gaming stories due to their tendency to be highly cliched and unoriginal, and the fact that at the height of creepypasta's popularity, this wiki was flooded with them, most of them being of poor quality.
However there were always problems and ambiguities with the way the policy was articulated. The lost episode ban applied not just to stories based on real TV shows and movies, which is usually what people think of by "lost episodes," but also to any stories that follow the "lost episode formula" in any way, even if the show of int…Read more >
