I think we need to crack down on how much PG-13 and R-rated movie ads appear in wikis designed for children (such as the SpongeBob wiki).Read more >

The law of flexible problem solving is the principle that flexible problem solving finds ways to overcome problems. It means that it is not possible to have a flexible problem solving ability with fixed limits. If there is any flexible problem solving ability around, it can find ways to identify the problem and solve it. For there to be any fixed limits at all, flexible problem solving must be absolutely absent. This implies that evolution happens by removing obstacles rather than natural selection. As shown in moderating the free will debate and brain, justification and pressure to justify constitutes obstacles that must be removed, see evolutionary development in new niches and advice of ways to stop justifying. It also explains how scie…Read more >

Everyone has their obsessions over teen stars, or movie stars, or models. Well, when girls at school are talking about how hot Channing Tatum or Josh Hutcherson is, I'm sitting here obsessing over how gorgeous I think The Joker is. I'm not talking about the actor, Heath Ledger who played him in 2008. I mean the actual person first created decades ago in the comics.
And I know what you're thinking..."He doesn't even exist!" and probably, "Ew! How can that scary clown be cute?!" Well, I think he's beautiful in his own special way.
Before I continue, I just want to acknowledge if you did say out loud that he doesn't exist that it's okay. I'm not stupid, I know that. But just the creation of this unique and fascinating being has caught my attent…Read more >
I kinda need some opinions and suggestions. I'm having mixed feelings about this recently.
Usually, when you contribute to wikis for TV series or entertainment, e.g anime, manga,etc.; especially the character articles. Do you find it hard to be careful about over-exposing info that should be self-explored by readers themselves? I'm talking about what would possibly be contributed into articles, for e.g the character article; where parts of the contribution would touch on some plot and how the character interacts with it. But on the other hand, if we leave out how the interaction of the character and its plot, it will be difficult to explain without having to 'spoil' things. ^^"
In some cases, episode summaries would be overly elaborat…Read more >
Hello. My name is WikiMan. (also written as Wikiman or wikiman).
I'm writing my first post in Community Central to discuss an issue that's bothering some of you.
I'm gonna talk about Immaturity at Wikia and how it affects the Wikipedia-inspired wiki farm.
Let me start with this first. This post made by user ErixeyaOfficial inspired me to write this post. Let me tell you why it did so.
As you can read there, the user in question states that he was arguing with what he deems "immature children". Aside loosing his wiki, he lost to these children. What really brought my attention is that the Wikia staff gave reason to those "immature children", even if Erixeya defended his arguments and deemed himself as a proper user.
For those who read the comments s…

I had this idea...dunno whether its good or not... basically, wikis are encylopedias-right? so, it'd be cool if there was a feature where (for a price dependent on the number of articles) users could purchase a copy of the wiki bound as an encylopedia, with an introduction prewritten by the founder/most active admin. it woudl arrive at your house and you'd be able to enjoy yours and others hard work as a cool enclopedia!Read more >
Hi. I love chat and use it almost everyday. I think it was a very good idea, but I found some glitches on it.
- Sometimes it freezes and you have to refresh
- Emoticons don't always work
- When you are on phone, it is VERY glitchy. It logs out, it freezes, not everymessages are sent/appear, etc. I think there should be a special phone chat, to use it only on your phone.
That's all for now, thank you

When someone uses chat, their messages disappear forever once they quit, with no evidence of what they said remaining. This is a huge problem.
On Ben 10 Fan Fiction there have been at least two huge arguments since I've been an admin over something that happened in the chat, one of which nearly tearing the wiki in two and driving away a good writer. None of them have been truly resolved to this day because there's no proof for either side's stories. It's always "You trolled so we banned you and then you socked so we banned you permanently!" and "No I didn't, I said 'Hi' and was banned!" thrown back and forth with no resolution.
On Minecraft servers, however, everything in the server console—chat, commands, server messages, et…Read more >
