    If a bureaucrat is being disruptive on your wiki, you can block the bureaucrat. Basically, just take away the bureaucrat's admin powers, and block the bureaucrat for infinite, including IP block! From there, they won't be able to unblock themselves or re-admin themselves.

    Anyway, here's just some little advice. I tested this with Wikia user 452 on my wiki, and the test worked.

    If the disruptive bureaucrat uses this method, you can send a VSTF report or contact Wikia.

    This blog will explain what COPPA is, along with other relevant details.

    COPPA, an acronym which means Child Online Privacy Protection Act, is a federal law of the United States. Wikia is based in San Fransisco, and as a result must adhere to COPPA.

    Wikia users are required to be 13 or over during signing up, in order to adhere to COPPA (and as per the Terms of Use). Therefore it is possible for Wikia staff to disable COPPA violating accounts, however this does not mean COPPA is a witch hunt for other users to enforce. This is mainly because other users are not allowed to request the age of other users, amongst other reasons.

    A relevant slice of the Wikia Terms of Use can be seen below: confirm that you are over the age of 13, and acknowledge tha…

    Can someone help me?

    August 21, 2014 by Muchacha

    Hi. I am an administrator at Encyclopedia SpongeBobia and am wondering how I could get a bot there so I can do multiple edits at once and things like that. The name of this would be "Jakebot", after me, of course. Thanks!

    The Great Lord David

    Hello, everyone. I´m The Great Lord David and I´m presenting my very first blog. As many of you know, Sock Puppets are one of the greatest problems both Wikipedia and Wikia have to deal with however they are handled the same way. The question is, how to catch them?

    Over time, it has become clear that there are many factors and evidence that can actually relate accounts in some specific ways and effectively contribute to the discovery of these malicious users. This blog post pretends to expose the situation and present every major evidence and factors that link sock accounts together in order to catch them with relative ease plus how to deal with every phase of the discovery of a sock puppeter.

    R: Anonymity is both the greatest strentgh of th…

    Hello everyone, I'm making my first blog post about how someone should react to a block.

    The correct way to react to a block When you look at your profile and it says that you are blocked, react in a calm way, go do something else, and eventually you'll learn from your mistake and when your block expires, hopefully you'll be a better user than before.

    The incorrect way to react to a block If you get blocked, here are some things you should not do:

    • Gloat about it
    • Call the admin that blocked you an insult, just because they blocked you doesn't mean they're idiots
    • Create a hate wiki about the admin that blocked you
    • If you were blocked for being underaged, don't complain that you were joking about your age, the COPPA law exists beause some creeps like …
