Normal Levels, diverse in size, security, and safety, are the blueprint of the Backrooms. Some levels are homes to sustained communities, while others pose major threats to any life inside them. Many of these levels represent what are known as "liminal spaces," evoking an eerie feeling inside the heads of its inhabitants. View some of the levels' photographs, and you may enthusiastically point your finger and scream, "This place looks familiar." We must warn you that the Backrooms do not abide by normal Earth laws — physics is thrown aside for more… chaotic anomalies.
We urge you not to linger in any single level unless there is documentation proving its safety. Levels can change over time or even stop existing — whenever this happens, a different space will replace the old level, which will cease to exist from this database but can be found in our archives. Remember that numbers are arbitrary — in most cases, the level's number has no correlation with the level's properties. Please keep this in mind when you ultimately create a new level document on our database.
Understand that it is your duty to create a piece of documentation immersive and descriptive enough such that your readers who traverse the level you're documenting know just as much as you do. Remember that you have creative freedom in how you choose to portray your discoveries — ask yourself whether a lost wanderer who views your level entry can effectively navigate it using your information. Don't worry if you lack information; another wanderer can always fill in. However, ensure that you have a general gist of the level you're documenting and enough elaboration to make wanderers' travels easier.

Sub-Levels, often considered the "in-between" levels, are levels with a direct connection to their parent level, but lack enough distinguishing qualities to be labelled with its own number. However, because sub-levels are technically not direct continuations of their parent levels, we have decided to number this category of levels as a decimal number, with the integer portion being the parent level.
Many sub-levels continue the theme of their parent level, albeit with a different twist justifying the creation of a separate page. They are not merely "different rooms" of a parent level. Each sub-level should have a different tone while maintaining a similar atmosphere.

Anomalous Levels are mysterious in nature — they cannot be fully described with an arbitrary number. Their lack of definite discovery dates makes it extremely difficult for us to firmly label with a specific number. Therefore, they are referred to by symbols, exaggerated numerical values, or their most distinguishing feature. While not necessarily more dangerous, these places generally ignore the rules of normal levels in the Backrooms, sometimes feeling like otherworldly dimensions rather than liminal spaces. You have been warned — many of these places will break your sense of reality.
Joke Levels aren't canon to the main Backrooms lore, and have the intention to be funny, ranging from meta content to connections with popular memes found throughout the internet.
