Vandalism is any act of making edits that damage New Dream Logos Wiki. Unmalicious vandalism is when the vandal is simply trying to help, whether it is a grammar fix or an additional paragraph. Even though this is with good intentions, it is prohibited if the vandal does not have the owner's permission. A page reading "Mario wears red clothes" could unmaliciously be changed by a vandal to "Mario wears overalls", which counts as vandalism.
Vandalism is prohibited. You may think vandalism may sound funny, but it's not. The vandalism will usually be reverted in less than 15 minutes. You will eventually get banned for persistent vandalism. If you continue vandalizing after a vandalism ban, your account will be banned indefinitely for a vandalism-only account.
Spamming is the act of typing large amounts of useless information that usually makes no sense whatsoever that can be described as a form of trolling. Spam can be posted almost anywhere on the wiki, including pages, message walls, the forums, maps and the chat. Instances of spam will be removed upon sight. If you see spam, please tell the administrators via their message walls. An example of spam is shouting nonsensical, often vulgar bouts of letters into a page, or repeating the same sentence over and over on chat.
Profanity in any language is not allowed on New Dream Logos Wiki. They are mainly used to insult others or objects. Many of our users here are generally around 13 - 19 years of age. Some users may be sensitive to profanity. Masking or using asterisks is still profanity. This is not radio where a beep will cover up a word. If we warn you, say something else. We strictly enforce this rule.
For your safety, it is not okay to reveal yours or somebody else's personal information. Any instances found will be removed.
Becoming an admin is not easy. To get admin rights, you must have at least 1,000 edits and must be trusted by the community. You must also have been active for 6 months and must not be banned more than three times during that period. Then you must have someone with bureaucrat rights to promote you. To become a bureaucrat, you must have 2,000 edits and be active for over a year. Breaking any of these rules with admin rights will result in impeachment (which means to have your rights revoked) and a serious ban.
- All of the same rules apply to admins.
- Do not ban users who have not yet broken a rule.
- Do not delete important pages or change the theme design.
- Do not discriminate users you do not like.
For the complete list of admins, see Dream Logos Wiki:Admins.
Sockpuppeting is not allowed, because they are accounts used to evade bans. You are not allowed to create or log into any other accounts during a ban as this is an attempt to avoid the administrative action. If you find out somebody is using a sockpuppet to evade their ban, please report it. Include the currently banned user's name and the sockpuppet's name.
Please do not replace photos/videos with other photos/videos, as it is a nuisance. If this was an accident, please tell the administrators and they will repair it without a warning or a block. If it was with malicious intent, the photo will be reverted back to its normal state and the rulebreaker will face a warning or a block depending on the severity.
Violence and GoreEdit
Gore is not allowed on the wiki under any circumstances -- unless it is something like a scrape/cut, or for example purposes. Cartoonish gore, such as Happy Tree Friends, is allowed unless it is EXTREMELY violent and graphic.
