FANDOM


Dream Fiction Wiki (and to a certain extent, Dream Logos Wiki) have always been about one thing, and one thing only. Open community. Well, two things in case of DLW, the other one being graphic design. In the past, there have been a few conflicts, edit wars, and similar occasions, but in the end, it happens at every wiki, no matter what.

Nowadays, we have two average administration teams (partially connected through members) upholding the wikis and maintaining order. We are not the best, but we also are not the worst. Being in the first place, when you look really deep into it, is not the best in the long run. We're like your police department, except we don't plant evidence, commit brutality on the basis of pure hatred for others, and also do not abuse our protection set by legal authorities. We have rules to prevent that, we're that sane.

And with this, comes the intimidation. "This wiki is so big, the admins are really on this stuff, what if I do something wrong?" and all of that is very understandable. Generally, no user is right and no user is wrong in most cases. Except for those who seek to just do harm by vandalism and harassment, which not only are violations of the wikis' Rules of Conduct but also violation of human decency.

Generally, we give out warnings, whenever someone screws up. Get enough warnings and you get blocked for a while, first a day, then a week, and so on and so forth. What's the limit of warnings before we start blocking? Admittedly, none of us know. There's never really been a line in the sand, or a carving on the stone. But I suppose it is based on the severity of the offenses rather than the frequency. And warnings are there to give you a chance to improve yourself.

We also have a Manual of Style, so that articles will be easier to comprehend, and thus, better reading for fun. If something does not fit it, we do not delete the page in question straight away, unless it is subject to candidacy for deletion, or subject to a new rule (which is still in developing stages) where, if a page isn't expanded from emptiness for a while after creation, it will be gone. That's because most of us care about quality, not quantity. And we are still improving pages to this day.

You can make pages of whatever you choose to, as long as it does not violate the FANDOM Content Guidelines and the afforementioned Rules of Content. After all, we don't choose to stop growing just yet. But we're not about spamming pages either, like empty pages and pages stuck in a limbo. And that's all there is to it for now. I may expand on this later on, if I have any additional thoughts. Until next time.
