    Hello! it's me BeyonderGod with another Wiki Advice for all those who are new or old to the Wikia life!


    • Observed Level Criticism: Observed criticism is basically a member who can sit down with the Administrator's and give positive/negative feedback about the community some administrator's would find this Disrespectful because some types of Admin don't like voiced opinions because they believe the person is trying to change the wikia which isn't always the case when its about how staff should improve on talking to members and fixing errors because thats what a wikia admin does and that's fixing problems made by users.
    • Biased Level Criticism: This level is basically the person being ignorant and personally belittling the wikia and the admin where…

    These are my own opinions backed up with facts referencing relevant discussions. Yes, I'm fully aware that I'm calling out specific Vanguard and Staff members for how they handled themselves unprofessionally that has since caused both sides to be "talking past each other" with legitimate concerns being met with deflection.

    Quote of the day: "Unfortunately, the business cannot divulge the reasons as to why PI is, for them, a necessary adoption" - TwoTailedFox

    So since the discussion regarding portable templates has generated quite some heated arguments by vocal users, vanguard and staff; thought I would provide pros and cons to both Wikitext and Portable. I have deliberately mentioned wikis of where concerns were brought up to prove with evide…

    Hi, everyone. I'm sure that a blog post is probably not the best way to get this problem noticed, but it's the only thing I can think of right now. The situation is dire.

    Let me tell you the backstory to this whole disaster:  a while back, my friend Stardust16, a loyal user on this site, made a mistake on the Lab Rats: Bionic Island wiki (months ago, mind you) that basically had a few administrators hating her. Basically, she became an admin there, and she gave a user a warning for repeatedly adding a category that didn't exist. Turns out it did exist, and Star just didn't know (I mean, 'Super Strong People'? I didn't even know that was a legitimate category!). So the staff blew up at her and demoted her. The works.

    Now, on the Lab Rats: Elite F…

    If a community does not allow any votes to remove bureaucrats (like here on Community Central) and one of them is abusing power, there are many different ways to deal with bad bureaucrats. There's possible good reasons a community has restrictions on voting out bureaucrats such as to prevent hostile removals if things are enforced. it may also be set to protect their privileges from being removed in-case a vandal or someone else deliberately tries to get an admin demoted for a reason whereas having the vote thread canceled and/or completely deleted. When powers get abused, there are different ways to deal with it.

    Notify another active bureaucrat for help and have it notify Wikia about the issue if there's one or more available or an admin …

    Hey guys, I am a user on Wikia and I am friends with Pretzel. Well here are some ideas on a way to be a good chat mod! To be honest, I hardly make any blogs... not sure why. Well I am just to lazy too, lol.


    1) This is number one be nice, users will like you if you are nice and helpful. Make users feel welcome and be friendly to newcomers.



    2) Don't be Boastful, yeah you're the chat moderator and you have rights and you can kick or/and ban users, but don't act like your higher than other user. Being like "I am a mod and I am a mod in chat" is just uncool.

    Don't also be like this: "I am the Chat Mod and I am in Charge!"


    3) Moderating chat Calmly warn a troublesome user of what they are doing wrong. Don't just kick them because they are new, everybod…

    This blog will explain everything about a message wall greeting.

    A message wall greeting is supposed to greet the user to your wall and encourage them to leave a message if they need help. But what if they are a troll and they leave a spam message? This blog will show you how to prevent that.


    Be sure to have rules to posting messages on your wall to prevent spam. Also state that you do not tolerate spam, This way, people know that they will have a consequence if they post spam on your wall. Do the same for any other rule. See here for some more examples.


    People live in different time zones and everyone needs sleep. But lets say you live in Canada and a wikian from the Philippines is trying to get assistance. Well, Canada is 15/16 hours behind…
