Fanloid Wiki is a collaborative website about the original and derivative characters relating to the Vocaloid program. The wiki format allows anyone to create or edit any article, so we can all work together to create the site. There are 1,042 articles and growing.
Fanloid (commonly abbreviated from Fanmade Vocaloid) are Vocaloid inspired characters, created by the Vocaloid fandom. This wiki will attempt to build a community for people who like to create fanmades and also attempt to expand from Vocaloid wiki, since that wiki has become more focused on official information.
Apologies for the current state of this wiki which is going through growing pains. There are many articles that are not up-to-date, organized or contain information that has been properly checked. If there are any questions please contact the current admin User:Bunai82.
Also do take care with the information here because some may not be researched or is currently in the process of being gathered. A lot of 'found fanmades' will have information that will result in changes to a page's content depending on the characters history.
What's new on Fanloid Wiki
-- Bunai82(talk)Admin returns - Announcement for upcoming revamps and updates Hello people, I have been away from the Fanloid wiki for a number of months because the Vocaloid wiki required 'a lot' of maintenance attention. And while it still does, I am nearing completion when it comes to the major tasks for the visual audiences of the site. I recently got a Wiki bot, and this has helped speed up a lot of editing that would normally be done manually. This announcement is here is for you to be aware that I will be scrutinizing any previous activity by new contributors that were active during the Summer months up to now. And I will be editing the pages and images according to the policies that have been set. I am not trying to 'ruin your fun'. I will be doing this to keep the Fanloid wiki organized so that even those outside the fandom can see that this place has a sense of quality. It isn't easy for me due to being a solo Admin that decided to tackle this particular part of the Vocaloid fandom because I actually like Fanmade creations. So, if I end up rewriting, editing, deleting or renaming anything that you have created for the past week, I will be giving you a message before hand and will attempt to communicate.
-- Bunai82(talk) 'My absence is still due to the Vocaloid wiki taking a majority of my editing time. Once I am free I will indeed be going through the recent edits over the past month to see if any oddities or vandalism has occurred. Just because I am not present it doesn't mean I am not keeping track of the wiki activity.'
-- Bunai82(talk) Okay, you probably noticed that a lot of new and unregistered users could not edit pages. This was due to maintenance. I have been working the Vocaloid wiki for the past 2 weeks, which required a lot of my attention. I will attempt to see what I can do for Fanloid before I allow new users to post again.
-- Bunai82(talk) Hello, as of July 12, 2013, the ability to edit by IP Addresses is temporarily disabled, meaning IPs are blocked from editing and creating pages.
This is so I can sort out the activity by unregistered users and attempt to properly set up pages. Due to recent attacks and spam this will take a while.
The duration of this block will last until the 13th of July, meaning it will be disabled some time tomorrow.
Thanks for your time.
Meanwhile please view these announcements if you are new to the wiki.
-- Bunai82(talk)To those who are new to the wiki: Please READ the Image policy & Fanloid Wiki Manual of Style. It takes a lot of work to edit multiple pages solo. If you have read both of these postings you would be aware that I will resort to reverting, deletion of images and pages if the activity of an account does not comply. I want to make this wiki a laid back environment but it should have standards. Also I am sorry it has taken this long to get things in order.
-- Bunai82(talk) Recently a Bot user w::User:RansomTime has helped in a big way. All the pages have been moved to their now more simplified categories and article titles. I will be making updates to the "List:" titled pages and continue to fix pages that have the "AboutUpload" template. I may end up changing the name to "MediaUpload" to match the template to the section it is suppose to be under.
-- Bunai82(talk) The Template:AboutUpload was updated to be more compact. I will be going through the pages with this template present and fitting them to the new format. Also Template:VoiceConfig will receive a similar update only relating to the header and font size of the template.
-- Bunai82(talk) The template, Notify has been created. It is there to make simple announcements at the top of the page, it is for Community use. I may replace some notice templates with this.
-- Bunai82(talk) I will be turning on new style forums later, I need time to transfer the old information to the new format. For those who will be using their Message Wall, you can create your own Wall Greeting by creating the following → Message_Wall_Greeting:<USERNAME>
-- Bunai82(talk) Due to younger members that don't understand wiki basics, I've decided to turn on the Help:Message Wall system. This will at least ease the need for people not signing post and they can comment on their own wall without having to travel to another wall to do it. On a Forum:Poll: Message Wall it was voted in favor of, so we shall test this out.
-- Bunai82(talk) I am still busy with other wikia wikis. This is mainly my time on Vocaloid wiki, I had to catch up on tasks that I was not able to do over the Summer. Currently I marked more pages with WIP template and I also protected popular Fanmade Vocaloids due to IP editors and some Username contributors adding false or non-sourced information. If you want to discuss content on the page, please use the talk page of the article. I do plan to go through every page later in the months to make sure content is in order, before I precede to complete pages on found characters.

Haku Yowane is a joke to users who failed at making Hatsune Miku sing well.
Neru Akita is a joke at trolls within the Vocaloid fandom. Her original purpose however, is far more controversial...
The UTAU Kasane Teto was originally put out as a Vocaloid by her owner as an April Fools joke.
Attention Fanloid fandom
The work of others
It is not wise to blatantly copy another creator's work without permission and then claiming that the series and characters you took belong to you. Additional advice, get proper permission, credit your sources and at least attempt to create an original series and characters yourself.
This kind of behavior is disrespectful and often leads to unnecessary fighting within the fandom, so it's a issue in its own right. Even if you just simply recolor someone's character and attempt to title it as something else, it still does not belong to you unless the original holder allows it. There are obvious exceptions when it comes to the official Vocaloids, as companies understand that the fandom enjoys creating derivatives of their characters. Other reasons are when it just can't be helped that some characters can end up being similar to one another.
Do not use someones artwork without permission. However, if the image is for fair use (and created for public use) then it is fine to use, but if not then please respect the artist and leave the image on their site.
Blatantly copied works are not yours. Please remember the original creator's right. Some of the works are also registered and protected under copyright laws and simply recoloring them could land you in a bit of trouble if unfairly used. Hopefully this will Not come to be.
