    Quick Select for categories

    November 22, 2015 by Hotspot

    I think it would be cool and useful, if there was a way to add the same category to multiple articles, all at once. Say there are 50 articles that are all female characters, instead of going onto each page to add the "Females" category, there would be some kind of "quick select option" that just allows you to add the Females category to all the categories.

    I am an admin on the Suikoden wiki, and for those who don't know, Suikoden is a series of 8 games and each game has around 108 characters, and it took a while just to put all of the characters in the same category for each game. So I had thought, wouldn't it be cool if there was a way to add all of the characters into the same category with one edit?!

    These are something's to know about corrupt admins,I'll explain certain types of the corrupt admins,if you know of any,tell me in the comments

    These guys appear very rarely (only saw one in my lifetime). These guys will

    • Make certain groups of users/the entire wiki turn on a single or group of users
    • Get people to be extremely loyal to them

    If they are just an admin,and the bureaucrats don't seem to be doing this,tell a bureaucrat

    If they are a bureaucrat and/or a group,I recommend contacting staff with proof that they are doing bad things

    These guys lie about bans left and right,these guys will

    • Ban people for no reason,typically lying about something they said in PM

    If they are an admin,report them to a non-corrupt bureaucrat

    If they are a bureaucra…

    My guide on vandalism

    October 19, 2015 by CoolGamer23

    This is my guide on vandalism (from the Crest of Xia Wikia):

    Vandalism is the act of irritating and angering people on wikis through the use of destruction, construction, and social engineering. Popularized on Wikia by teams, vandalism has become a serious problem for admins and can bring drama into wikis.

    Trolling, however, is different from vandalism, because afterwards vandals give their items back, and repair any damage they did.

    Type Description How to prevent
    Destruction Self explanatory. Most vandals' goals are to destroy as much content as they can, so they can make pages unusable and destroyed. Protection has become useful on wikis, and they can protect pages to prevent this problem.
    Creation Nearly as frequent as destruction, vandals o…

    I requested that I become an admin of Thomas the Tank Engine and his Friends Wiki. It may seem like a cheap copy of the actual TTTE&F wiki; what I'm attempting to do is to make it an unofficial wiki. Meaning that anybody can add information about the franchise that the official wiki wouldn't or don't show anymore. Here's the link to the adoption page:

    Random new admins

    September 12, 2015 by Stevoawesome

    Hello! I'm an admin on the Creature Wiki, and today there are two new admins who popped up all of a sudden. They have never done any sort of contribution until today. I was just wondering what's up and if there are other wikis with some brand new admins.   Stevoawesome (talk) 03:11, September 12, 2015 (UTC)

    Hello, I'm Deadcoder. Most of you know me for my work and episode review blog on the Code Lyoko Wiki. But today, I'm blogging about a serious matter that's important to every Wikia user, from anon accounts to Wikia staff, to everyone in between: Security. In this post, I'll post 5 security tips that you can follow to make your communities safer.

    0: Use HTTPS whenever possible. Most links that go somewhere other than the same website start with a set of letters, followed by a colon and two slashes, such as "http://", "https://", or "ftp://". This is the Protocol of the link. Whenever possible, use https instead of http. The difference with https is that the transmission is encrypted and authenticated. This means that third party scum "NSA" h…

    Hello Wikians,

    From time to time we repeat the topics of our blogs, for the benefit of new users and as a reminder for our old experts, that have been editing on Wikia for a long time. I talk to a lot of Wikians and sometimes ask them for advice, primarily to understand how their communities work. If you look at a community from the outside, it can look quite chaotic! It reminds me of an ant-hill — lots of busy ants — and only if you look from a distance, you can see the structure. Everybody is working towards the same goal, or at least tries to. How does this all come together? You have guessed correctly: With the help of our awesome admin force!

    Instead of just writing a blog and giving you my thoughts, I collected the thoughts of several …

    Alright here is a good blog everyone shoulder before starting and or joining a wikia so we start on what is Admin Abuse and how to solve and also avoid it. (Just to clarify this isn't a event that happened to me or is happening to me currently just wanting everyone to see if this happened to them and want to help make wikia a more friendly place.)

    When an administrator in online games, message boards, or servers, misuse their power. Often by becoming power hungry and causing trouble just for their own amusement.

    • Admin: "I locked this so and so page because i dont like the way people edit."
    • Person A: "I think so and so should be allowed to be unlocked because we already discussed this before."
    • Person B: "I have to agree on this subject with Person…
