If a user on your wiki was banned and they want their ban appealed, here is a simple ban appeal page for admins.
All content is from the Dream Logos Wiki.
Every once in awhile, a user will face a ban. Bans are mainly caused by violating the wiki's rules.
Moderators and administrators are trained professionals and do not ban accounts for no reason. staff can check the reason why you have been banned and we will know exactly what has happened. As such, we very rarely have any reason to remove a ban from an account.
You can contact the banning admin on Community Central to appeal a ban that is more than one month in length, and we will review the situation. However this does not guarantee that your ban will be lifted.
When appealing, you must pre…

Hi! I'm a bureaucrat from The Vampire Diaries Wiki. Last week I made a poll for our visitors so that they can vote for their favourite characters, pairings, episode etc. Some users had voted multiple times and it's not fair. The poll was made via kwiksurveys. Can you recommend another site which blocks multiple voting or suggest me what should I do? Subtract those "fake" votes and announce the results or cancel the previous poll and make a new one? Maybe on Google Docs? Thanks.Read more >
Wikia has a large collection of wikis on all topics, and it’s hard to capture the audience you want to find. Creating affiliates to similar projects that fall under the same category or type of content makes it easier to draw more users who may find your content interesting. Crafting a small section on a Home Page sidebar, or as a footer at the bottom of the page, will help each community grow and flourish.
Whether you have a wiki about a unique sport, an epic sci-fi movie or a new mobile game (more about games later!) you will be able to find wikis similar and try to get on board and create or join an affiliation!
While it isn’t something built into Wikia, several overarching wikis like the YouTube Wiki, the Horror Film Wiki and the Disney …

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…Read more >

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…Read more >

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 …Read more >
