FANDOM


This is the official rules on the Dream Logos Wiki. All rules listed are in effect and apply to all ranks on the wiki. These are the rules that apply to the wiki, forums, and chat.

Users who violate one or more policies stated will result in a kick or ban. If a rule here needs to be changed, discuss this with an administrator, because Drillimation Studios has the right to do so.

All bans are binding until expiration or removal upon disputes. Using a sockpuppet via other accounts, identities, personalities, or presence to evade punishment such as a ban or chat mute is strictly prohibited. If you are caught doing this, your main account's ban will be extended and the sockpuppet will be permanently banned.

Respect all administrators and bureaucrats

All decisions made by the administration team are considered final. Please do not argue with a judgment made by one of our staff members. If you feel an administrator or bureaucrat is being abusive, please contact Wikia (if the abusive user is a bureaucrat) or the administration team on the report page or message them privately.

We may remove or lock threads of which the sole purpose is to publicly complain, shame, or rage about staff members. These issues should be dealt with on the report page, and not publicly on the forums.

Account Security and Sharing

As a user of Dream Logos Wiki, you are responsible for the security of your Wikia account. If another user gains access to your account by any means, you are still responsible for your account. Please make sure that your passwords are secure and that you never give them out to anyone. We recommend you use a combination of letters and numbers, both capital and lowercase, as well as any symbols in necessary. Don't use things such as sports teams, pet names, your mother's maiden name, birthplaces, favorite titles, or any other things that can make it easy for hackers to guess.

To note, we do not allow the sharing of Wikia accounts used on Dream Logos Wiki. If your account is shared with another user and they break a rule which results in punishment, the punishment will remain on the account regardless of any claims that you weren't the person using the account. This could, in some cases, also lead to a punishment being carried over to other accounts you own if we believe it to be a case of you sockpuppeting (i. e., evading your punishment).

Illegal Activity is not Permitted

You must respect the Terms of Use and all international laws while using Dream Logos Wiki. Any content or activity featuring or encouraging illegal activity is strictly prohibited. The following things are considered violations of Wikia's Terms of Use:

  • Predatory behavior such as threatening or attempting to attack, kill, DDOS, or SWAT another person, as well as posting another user's dox is strictly prohibited by the Terms of Use.
  • Any content or activity involving pornography, sexual intercourse, or adult services is prohibited. Conduct involving exploitation of minors will be reported to authorities via the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
  • Use of racist profanity toward another user is also prohibited.

Advertising is not permitted

Advertising other wikis on the Dream Logos Wiki or Forums will result in a ban from the wiki altogether. This includes sharing an IP or Website/Domain (other than that of Drillimation) in public chat, messaging system, pages, etc. Pages should not be written in the form of advertisements. Uploading things such as screenshots for magazine/TV advertisements are allowed, though please do not break the aforementioned rule. The Dream Logos Wiki is not a soapbox, battleground, or a vehicle for propaganda, advertising and showcasing.

Advertising your wiki name, inviting, or publicly offering any user to join your wiki is allowed in public chat, but if you spam it or annoy others with it, this will result in a mute and if an admin asks you to stop, listen to them. All wiki-related promotions, offers, announcements, etc, should be done on the ‘Advertisements’ board on the forums to avoid complaints.

Announcing anything that relates to a party for wikis is allowed, though please do not break the rules of Spam & Capital Letters.

Buying and Selling Wikia Accounts

If you choose to buy a Wikia account from someone else (a practice that we do not recommend), please note that if you find it is banned from the wiki, it is NOT our responsibility to unban it. That account had a history before it came into your ownership, and it stays with the account.

To protect the users of this network, we also do NOT allow the sale (or advertising of) Wikia accounts on the Dream Logos Wiki or Forums. This is because selling Wikia accounts is a commonly used avenue for scammers. Not allowing these sales is the best way for us to protect the users of our wiki.

Do not Impersonate or “Pretend to be Someone”

Impersonating is a serious offense on the Dream Logos Wiki, as we do not take this lightly. If you witness someone impersonating a moderator or admin/bureaucrat, please make a report as soon as possible. Impersonating to be staff on the forums is not allowed, please do not troll someone to think you are able to do something that you can’t.

You can recognize staff members by looking at the tags on their mastheads:

  • Rollbacks have the ROLLBACK prefix,
  • Moderators have the MODERATOR prefix,
  • Administrators have the ADMIN prefix,
  • Bureaucrats have the BUREAUCRAT prefix.

Do not Spam or Vandalize Anything on the Wiki

Spam and vandalism of any type is not permitted. The minimal requirement for it to be classified as spam includes, but is not restricted to, the posting of same or similar messages consecutively, a repetitive number of times within the space of a few or more seconds. Vandalizing is any act of making any edits that damage Dream Logos Wiki. Messages comprising of all or a large amount of caps is also considered spam. Spam on the Forums will not be tolerated, spamming posts or threads will either get you suspended or banned from the forums.

Do not Edit Pages That Aren't Yours

Editing pages that aren't yours is considered vandalism, and you need explicit permission to edit another user's page(s). Correcting minor errors like spelling/grammar mistakes doesn't require permission from the page owner. However, you should put {{allowed}} to let others know who is allowed to edit that page. You should also discuss any changes you want on that page in the comments. Failure to obtain proper permission to edit another user's page will result in disciplinary action. Administrators are freely allowed to edit any page.

No Rude or Inappropriate Language or Content

Please be mindful of others when speaking in chat or adding content, as many of our users here are young. Profane language (swearing) is not allowed. This also includes the naming of pages you create. Profane or offensive content in your masthead will not be tolerated. Use of Profane Language on the forums will cause said post/thread to either be edited to something cleaner, or for the entire post to be deleted. Using asterisks (*) or masking (using words that sound a lot like the actual word) is still profanity. This place should not be like stuff you see or hear on TV or radio where a "beep" is going to cover up a word.

This also includes posting links to inappropriate content (e.g. adult content). As mentioned before, we do have young users on the wiki, and they should not be exposed to such content.

Do not Upload Content That You Aren't Authorised to Use

Main Article: Dream Logos Wiki:Copyright Policy

Stolen content of any type will be deleted. This means the ideas of users from this wiki in particular. If a user does not give you explicit permission to use their idea or character, you may not use it. Uploading any content that you do not own or have the rights to can make your account liable to a DMCA takedown by a rights holder. This includes, but is not limited to reuploading images from other wikis, uploading an edited/modified version of a creative work, claiming content as yours or another user's, as well as uploading content from other sites.

Offensive Page Content

Like the rest of the wiki, content which is created in pages must be appropriate for users of all ages, meaning that it should not be offensive, discriminatory or generally inappropriate in any other ways. This includes text, images, comments, etc. If a staff member finds that your page content does contain inappropriate content, they may edit your page to remove the offensive material or delete the entire page.

To note, while we also allow most forms of role play in pages and chat, dating and marriage role playing (pages that describe marriage events are allowed with fictional characters, however) are not allowed on the site due to its close links with far more inappropriate, adult forms of role play. Images that have flashing lights is not permitted, as these can cause seizures to those with photosensitive epilepsy and is harmful to others. Uploading any content in an attempt to troll another user with an irritating sound is also not permitted, as this can cause misophonic attacks to those sensitive to these. You might not like everything on the Dream Logos Wiki, and some content may offend you. If you find something that breaks the Rules of Conduct, report it. If it doesn't, click on something else.

Respect All Users

RAU - Respect All Users, we are all humanoids and we all like the Dream Logos Wiki. Please be respectful and kind to others while playing games, or even lounging in lobbies. Forum respect will be enforced, do not write something that will be considered rude, it does hurt someone’s feelings in the end. Discrimination of any kind is not tolerated and will result in a ban.

We will NOT allow the following:

  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • Ageism
  • Remarks about Disabilities
  • Religion
  • Or any other kinds of Discrimination

Examples of this include things such as:

  • Attacking users on this site and others, such as "(Username) Gets Grounded" series or other GoAnimate fads
  • Cyberbullying pages such as "(Username) Sucks Studios/Entertainment/Holdings"
  • Criticizing users over stealing content for derivative works. Remember the site is a fanon wiki and its contents come from the imaginations of its users and aren't meant to represent real properties. Also, remember that all copyrighted materials used on the site are licensed under Fair Use.
    • Doing this is considered abuse of a law called the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. This law states that copyright holders must consider Fair Use in full faith before issuing takedown notices for content posted on the internet. Any copyright holder who misrepresents a DMCA claim or does not consider Fair Use in full faith may face civil liability.

Messages may only be typed in English or Japanese because they might not speak your language. All chat rules are affecting both languages. Breaking the chat rules in different languages will still lead into punishment.

Respect YouTubers

We always look towards YouTubers as public figures, and we know that many of them often use the wiki, and some of them are our friends as well. Therefore, we should treat them nicely and let them play on even grounds just like any normal user. We do not ask you to stop playing with/against them but try to not discourage them from playing by constantly putting a target on YouTubers and defeating them as a guild or as a group (note that many of these people aren’t professionals). It is also worth noting that the publicity of the wiki depends on the content being streamed/uploaded by them, and constantly trying to crush them competitively as a guild will discourage them from streaming or uploading further content on the server.

Aside from benefiting the network, treating the YouTuber or streamer fairly will also benefit you, as shoutouts or stream coverage can be dedicated towards you and your guild in a positive manner (win-win!). Therefore, help all of us and yourself by treating the YouTubers and streamers fairly and not try to constantly target and defeating them as a guild. Keep in mind that constant attempts to target, competitively defeat, and discourage YouTubers/streamers from playing as a guild may be reported and can result in bans and a varying amount of kudos removed from the guild, depending on the severity of the situation.

Offensive Usernames and Avatars are not Permitted

Avatars that are offensive or sexually explicit are not permitted on Dream Logos Wiki. Anyone using an avatar of such nature will be warned at first sight, but further consequences may follow if use of the avatar is continued. The following below is a list of what's allowed and not allowed for avatars:

  • Avatars must not contain any nudity or sexual references, meaning no fake anime girl or real photos that fall under the category of pornography.
  • Avatars must not contain any reference to drugs or alcohol, we do not want to advertise any product that might be offensive or inappropriate on the wiki.
  • Avatars must not encourage violence, racism, or any misconduct. Please keep in mind that any sign that relates to these categories are not allowed.
  • Photos or Selfies you find on the Internet are not allowed to be uploaded as your avatar. Meaning you cannot impersonate other people on here by posting a fake photo of “yourself”.

Usernames that could be considered offensive like, sexual topics, profanity or distasteful are forbidden. If you don't follow that rule you will be permanently banned from the wiki.

Please don't forget that we want a wiki that is family friendly.

Do not Fake Yours or Someone Else's Death

If a user retires or dies on Dream Logos Wiki, we need proof (such as an obituary) so that we can confirm it. If we find out this is false, then faking a death or retirement will result in bans that can last a few months to a year, or even permanent.

Personal Information Must Be Kept Private

Knowing users on the Dream Logos Wiki isn't always the same as knowing them in real life. The sharing of personal information (doxxing) on pages, chat, and message walls is strictly prohibited on the Dream Logos Wiki. This includes but is not limited to street or email addresses, school/work names, or other personal identifying information. This also includes the information of other users as well. Making arrangements to meet a user in real life is also strictly prohibited on the Dream Logos Wiki. The Dream Logos Wiki is not a dating site and should not be used to make meet-up arrangements.

To protect users under 18 years of age, we also encourage users to make friends on the Dream Logos Wiki if they know them in real life (such as the same school or neighborhood).

No Cheating or Exploiting on the Wiki

Keep in mind using hacks on Wikia is illegal. This includes:

  • Using any form of hacks which gives an unfair advantage against other users, such as:
    • Inflating edit counts
    • Use of spam bots
    • Utilizing bots to spam the chat or crash the site
  • Using any of the disallowed modifications found above.
  • Exploiting any kind of Bug or Glitch.

Report all bugs relating to Wikia here.

Becoming an Admin

Becoming an administrator is not easy. You have to have a bureaucrat of the wiki to make you one. Keep in mind there is a limit for staff. There are three bureaucrats, three admins, three moderators, and three rollbacks. If there is a position open, you can be promoted.

However, you have to adhere to the following standards:

  1. You must be active on a regular basis.
  2. You must have at least 1,000 or more edits to qualify.
  3. You must not be currently banned on another wiki. If we find out you were banned on another wiki, then you will not be promoted until you resolve those bans.
  4. You cannot qualify if you were banned for more than three times.
  5. You must occasionally help the wiki. This means correcting spelling mistakes, marking pages for deletion.
  6. You must show a sign of maturity. This means having the ability to stand up to all reports that could contain content that is potentially offensive. If you are not prepared, then you will not be promoted.
  7. Don't be a demon butt-kicker. You have to be open-minded when creating pages.

All of the same rules apply to admins and bureaucrats. However, you also have to adhere to these rules as well:

  1. Don't ban a user who did not yet break a rule. You must be professionally trained and must not ban users for any apparent reason.
  2. Don't delete any pages that meet the guidelines. Pages that break the Rules of Conduct should be deleted.
  3. Don't be cruel over the punishments you give.
  4. Try to stay active as possible. If you are inactive for a month, you will be demoted until you return. If this happens a second time, you will be permanently demoted.

Failing to adhere to the admin rules will result in being impeached and a serious ban.

Consequences

We do not expect everyone to do good here, but we admins have the big guns here. Users who violate one or more policies are subject to a ban.

  • First offense: Warning
  • Second offense: 2 week ban
  • Third offense: 1 month ban
  • Fourth offense: 3 month ban
  • Fifth offense: 6 month ban
  • Sixth offense: Permanent ban

Reporting

You can report users who have broken the rules at Dream Logos Wiki:Reports. When doing so, include your username, what the user did, and any notes we need to see before proceeding.
