Hi. This original blog post can be found here.
As you can see, I am FuzzyDice, a Wikian who enjoys keeping vandalism off wikis. Along with being a Wikian, I am also a Wikimedian who fights vandalism across Wikimedia projects. I am here today to share my vandalism fighting skills with you.
I started this blog series because I think that vandalism is no joke and take it very seriously. In this series, I will show you how to classify vandalism, how to report it, how to remove it, etc. Every now and then, I will ask a question in my blogs. The answers will be revealed in the blog the following week.
I've done enough talking already. Let's get to the fun stuff.
The most important thing about anti-Vandal work is figuring out what edits …

Usually, we come together to share and celebrate what we know and love about our favorite subjects, but today the topic is a bit more serious. Wikia's foundational philosophy celebrates openness and transparency, based on the notion that knowledge is something that should be shared through collaboration. Simply put, our communities would not be possible without a free and open internet.
Currently, a battle rages surrounding the topic of network neutrality. Network neutrality protects the right to communicate freely and openly on the internet by making sure that all information is delivered equally. Some cable companies want to charge websites extra fees to deliver their content. Any site that refuses to pay this unfair tol…Read more >
I feel as if the Wikia team isn't thanked enough for their enormous effort in making Wikia, and so, this blog is for everyone to take a moment and thank the Wikia team for their huge contributions in creating Wikia.
Thank you, Wikia. I have been a part of this site for a few years now and I have greatly appreciated all you guys have done for everyone involved in this community. You have allowed this young man from Australia and many other members of all ages come together with at least one thing in common; some sort of passion for expressing creativity and working together to provide the ultimate database in different areas. I have been able to do just that since I have been here, accomplishing much more than I would have ever thought I wou…

Good morning/afternoon/evening all!
I am the admin of the Kekkaishi Wikia , I have been inactive there as my interest in Kekkaishi waned (and the series ended) so I have been out of the Wikia buisness for around a year. A new USA original Drama premiered on the USA network so I watched it and fell in love with it! It's so great! I decided to see if a Wikia was made for it already and there wasn't so I decided to make it.
For those who have not seen it, it is about a married couple who have been together for 18 years and are both feeling unsatisfied sexually in their marriage, so the wife hires a male escort and gets caught by her husband in secret. I think the acting is great, the story is very interesting, and the characters are very dynami…Read more >
Ethical Work Practices
The issue is that Lorna has a copy of the interview questions and considers making a copy for a friend who is applying for a job in the same company as her. If she decides to make a copy to give to her friend, she could end up losing her job, or lose her position as an administrative assistant and her friend might not get the job. The best thing she can do is to tell him that he should be himself and answer as honestly as he can.

Canada has found one of the two sunken British ships from Sir John Franklin’s 1845 expedition that disappeared in the Arctic, parts of the deck and mainmast intact.
The wreck was discovered about 36 feet below the surface in Queen Maud Gulf, off the Nunavut mainland, about 1,800 miles north of Toronto, said John Geiger, chief executive officer of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, which participated in the search.
“This is one of the two most important undiscovered shipwrecks in the world,” Geiger said today in a statement. “It’s a wonderful and exciting discovery that promises to shed more light on the ill-fated expedition’s final months, weeks, and days.”
It’s not clear yet whether the vessel is Her Majesty’s Ship Erebus or the HMS Te…Read more >
