Initially hosted as a FANDOM site, the project was launched on the 30th of June, 2018 in a discord for the Survival Railway Network by player William278 as a start of a push to document the history of the server. Before the launch of the Wiki Project, historical recording of Dogcraft was poor and information for new players on the site was outdated, hence the idea to create an easily accessible Wiki to record information. This would serve as a place to learn the history of the server and find information about it, fulfilling the needs of both new and veteran players.
The Wiki was quickly popular among builders of the SRN and spread to other members of the community. A discord was created to help organise editing efforts and William appointed SRN Conductor darparniox in February of 2019 to assist with administration. Near the middle of the year, the two drafted a plan to make the Dogcraft Wiki official and submitted it to the Head Moderators. The plan was approved and on the 6th of September, 2019, the wiki was migrated from the FANDOM site to the Dogcraft.net website and was made an official service of the site. In October of 2019, Domino_1 was also made a Wiki Administrator to assist with the transition and continue to curate high-quality Wiki articles. To mark the end of the year and the start of 2020, a special reflections event was held to get players to write articles. The wiki now takes a prominent spot on the new website, created in March 2020.
