The Dream Logos Wiki is a Logopedia fanon wiki currently owned and operated by FANDOM. It allows users to upload fictional, fanon, and fake logos to prevent uploading fake logos from Logopedia. It is available on PC and Mac computers, smartphones, iPhones, iPads, and Android tablets.

HistoryEdit

The site was founded on April 18, 2011, by Kaylor Blakley. The wiki became popular in 2013 for new fake logo users. In October of the same year, The Logo Cooler attempted to adopt the wiki but failed.[1]

From 2014 to 2016, Kaylor Blakley is involved with edit warring with Thomas Kong62704, DonaldoC1997, Lumogo, SuperCartoonBrony 2000, Lukesams, KansasJ (formerly Unitedd), etc.

In December 2015, a second attempt to adopt the site was successful. On December 27, 2015, Susumu Takajima, also known as "Driller" adopted the wiki to prevent it from being disbanded, and became part of Drillimation Systems (called Drillimation Studios at the time).[2] As of 2016, Susumu "Driller" Takajima, a character from Drillimation Studios' Chuhou Joutai series, has been the site's mascot ever since and has been displayed on the site's home page alongside Kagami Ochiai since August 2018.

In July 2018, Blakley was impeached by Wikia staff from all the edit warring and kaleidoscope promo spamming. Early in the same month, anonymous editing was disabled due to abusive ranges. After he was impeached, a third attempt to adopt the site was made by Blakley but was thwarted by staff.[3] Three months later, Kislevi031 and Lumogo retired from the wiki while Ootwar became bureaucrat. On December 12, 2018, the forums were replaced with Discussions due to Wikia discontinuing forum highlights.

In 2019, Dream Logos Wiki along with Dream Fiction Wiki run into a crisis regarding sockpuppeteer Chebbycraft34. Dream Logos Wiki along with Dream Fiction Wiki was intended to be moved to Miraheze to avoid Chebbycraft34 sockpuppeting but later cancelled after Takajima contacted Wikia to ban Chebbycraft34's IP addresses. On July 11, 2019, Drillimation permanently moved the Dream Logos Wiki (and its sister site Dream Fiction Wiki) to what Takajima calls the "Dream Logos Wiki 3.0" after the site became part of Wikia Spotlight. This included a complete redesign of the site, including the removal of the built-in chat function in favor of the Discord server, as well as changing their advertising and content usage policies.

In mid-December 2019, the wiki's control was given to a group of bureaucrats in both wikis, consisting of Ootwar, AmazingTLM and Blue91233. Ootwar announced plans to restructure the entire admin team to take responsibility of both wikis, and is currently working on a March Madness-style adminship election he nicknamed "the Grand Election".

Themes Edit

Driller has prepped special themes for Halloween, Christmas, New Year's Day and April Fools. The Halloween theme consisted of an orange and black-striped background, while the Christmas theme has a red and green background. The Halloween and Christmas themes go up for the entire month, while the new year's day background goes up for the first week of the new year. Driller also prepped an April Fools' theme, where the background featured Flandre Scarlet from Touhou 6: The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil.

In 2018, a new April Fools theme featured Flowey from Undertale. In December of the same year, a special Christmas theme based on Super Smash Bros. was created to commemorate the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. 2019 saw the return to the 2017 April Fool's prank but with a darker and edgier feel. Additionally, an anniversary theme was displayed on April 18, 2019, the day the site was founded.

Controversies and criticism Edit

Kaylor Dale Blakley Edit

The original founder of the site, Kaylor Blakley, has been criticized for using "kaleidoscope promos" to spam on the site. It took several years before he was formally banned in the summer of 2018.

Chebbycraft34 Edit

In early 2019, both the Dream Logos Wiki and its sister site Dream Fiction Wiki ran into a period of crisis over user Chebbycraft34, who was initially banned for having a username similar to former staff member ChubbyCroeya371 but socked his way out of bans in order to post spam and vandalism on the site. This led to a near-yearlong investigation with Wikia staff, who imposed several IP range bans on the user as time flew by.

In early 2020, following a difficult 2019, Drillimation will make an announcement in the November 2019 Monthly Update, stating they will open investigations with Wikia on resurgent sockpuppet users other than Chebbycraft34.

Dream Logos and Fiction Wiki Discord crisis Edit

On December 5, 2019, CoolGamer23, as he has done for the past few months, posted a link to a tweet relating to his video game Chuhou Joutai, which has received partial backlash for marketing in inappropriate places.

After a big argument broke out with CoolGamer23 (Driller) defending himself, Ootwar tipped off about his behavior to the official FANDOM/Gamepedia Discord server, where some of the staff members criticized his actions, but didn't do much before Ootwar eventually went further into it in a report filed to the staff through their Zendesk.

On December 7, 2019, Ootwar and Mr21stCenturySamInc started up a hashtag #BoycottDriller as a response to his actions. As a response, he first created a new channel on the Discord server, #advertisements, to combat any further backlash. However, soon afterward, Driller threatened to file reports about the members of the #BoycottDriller movement to the Discord's Trust & Safety team and then Wikia's Staff as he claimed they violated their respective sites' policies, until he was quickly silenced by Ootwar's report that he sent to the staff himself shortly before.

A cornerstone to the major flood of users entering the server was a video posted by Chrissy on the same day, featuring GuitarKid as well as Natebross, discussing Driller's problematic behavior in the same style as most commentary videos. Takajima eventually got fed up and muted the server, preventing any conversations from happening. The mute didn't extend to staff though. The following day, Ootwar announced the conversations would continue on his backup Discord server until the mute ends.

During the mute, Ootwar started to remove users from the main server since he has been given the impression of Driller not caring about the community at all. In response, Driller sent him a DM asking him to stop, otherwise he will lie about him being a pedophile. He shortly afterwards deleted the message, trying to prevent it from being reported to the Trust & Safety team. However, Ootwar managed to get the screenshot before he had a chance to delete it and posted it to Twitter simply for amusement, not planning to report the message.

According to part of Ootwar's initial research back in July, Wikia refused to remove the Chuhou Joutai-theming off the site, as Takajima's actions did not violate Wikia's Terms of Service. They stated they're just there for decorative purposes. However, Ootwar has continued to nonetheless object to allow advertising for the game, due to it being unfair to the rest of the community. Starting on December 9, Takajima announced he would be making major changes to both sites overall, while all advertisements for the game would not be removed but be difficult to find and placed behind external link warnings, as it continued to draw criticism from users and even staff themselves. These changes are still in beta and won't be finalized until they are approved by Wikia.

Wikia, however, has objected to allowing the URL to Drillimation's website be on both the Dream Logos and Fiction Wikis' wordmarks, as they were against their standards.

As a result of the site revamp, changes were made to the respective sites' Rules of Conduct, the guidelines in which all users are required to follow. Initally, this included the prohibition of protesting activities and changes to their advertising policies, but the protesting rules were deemed too strict, so Takajima did more research to further identify the real cause of the problem. He claimed that his research turned out Ootwar was being a troll and that he "fed the trolls," which is a serious offense on Wikia. However, this was nothing but absolute degrading of the BoycottDriller movement, which, while some users did use spamming and profanity as attacks, only intended to "correct the wrongs of a strict and ignorant leader" and used revolution on the side.

After the problem was taken care of, Drillimation announced they will begin to slowly unmute the server.

On December 11, 2019, CoolGamer23 was stripped from his bureaucracy rights by Sannse, putting the end of the crisis.
