I appreciate this, Sannse. I do understand what I said about you. I take full responsibility for my actions. For me, I felt as though I was at a loss. I was trying to help better the community, but it failed epically. I wanted more freedom to using Wikia. I guess I felt as though I needed my independence. One thing I tried to fight against, was to allow people to edit their own page even if global banned. I figured because we own a wikia, that it is ours to do so as we please. What I didn't know is that it isn't owning, it is more like adoption. Eventually we will pass away or leave our page, and someone else will adopt it. So, I kind of had things a little wrong. I was accusing wikia for stealing and telling them it was against the law. I never seen it like I should have. In all honestly, I might have had the right confidence, just wrong direction. I also understand there is a semi vote between the community which settles everything. meaning, if we discuss something that someone doesn't like, if it bothers too many people, we have no choice but to stop ( even if the discussion wasn't bad ). So, everything is probably decided upon the community, like a democracy. Am I right?
One more thing, I want to discuss some plans, but I don't want to tell you here because my idea might be stolen from. Is there a way that I can speak to you about this privately? I am actually going to need to talk to sactage as well about this. Sactage is actually the right person for the job. I shall and will apologize to him when I get back from the store. Thank you Sannse for shedding some light on things. You're not a half bad person :)
Arggh, is wikia slow on your end right now? Are they doing updates? Maybe the server is slow? I notice I get a black webpage sometimes and Wikia will crash.
Recently, I am scared that a user might try to get me globally blocked for falsely accusing her. I would like to give some background on this:
This user has been in arguments with me and some other admins on WeAreWarriors wikia or 'WAW' (The wiki where all this happened). And after a while, I blocked her. For things she had done.
It was for two hours, and she could still edit her message wall. She asked me why I blocked her, and I gave her reasons. She said she didn't do these things, the things were,
Minor violation of copyright, she has posted images I thought were from google, which have 'images my be subject to copyright' on them, and are therefore considered copyrighted on WAW, and can't be used. Though now she states otherwise, she seemed to state here: http://wearewarriors.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:8454 that she used google images.
Editing Clan ranks without permission, she had a character named Fernpaw, who was MCA after she went inactive (She had never been really active, she would edit about once a week at the most) and the mediicne cat was about to die we told her we were making a new medicne cat apprentice, the user gave us a reason for being inactive and just added Fernpaw back without permission. Here was the thread where you discussed what to do about Fernpaw with her: http://wearewarriors.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:12304 and this RockClan history: http://wearewarriors.wikia.com/wiki/RockClan?action=history the user had added that Fernpaw can stay MCA without permission.
This kind of thing is best submitted to Special:Contact/general. Just to give you some solace: admins can block for whatever reason they see fit. As an admin/part of an admin team, you can set the rules of your wiki (preferably with some community input).
Hello, Sannse. How are you? A Wikia user came to me for help. I am the founder of the Password Wiki, where this user came for help. The user calls himself Kirillkaleginn22 and says that another user who calls himself SOMEGUY476 had harassed him on Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story Fanon Wikia. SOMEGUY476 had called Kirillkaleginn22 many offensive names, one of which was “retard”. He told me to block that user, but I told him that he would need to come here to Community Central. SOMEGUY476 has nothing better to do than harass other Wikia users.
Actually, Kirillkaleginn22 has never edited at said wikia. I do see a block reason involving the words "stupid" and "retard", however. Kirillkaleginn22 will have to email Staff himself, as only users that are being bullied can vouch for what the bully said.
It would actually be very helpful to contact VSTF, as it seems that SomeGuy is also some spammer (get it?? XD).
If you haven't already looked at this, then I suggest you read it. But in short, content managers deal with content (per their name). They have the ability to delete and undelete pages, protect and unprotect pages, suppress redirect on page moves, move files, and reupload files. They also have the rollback right.
As for discussion, they monitor and regulate the discussion areas of the wiki: forums, blogs, and chat. They can delete, move, and edit Article Comments and delete Blog Comments, close/remove threads, and hold the Chat Moderator position.
Discussion Moderator: Can manage the Forum by highlighting/un-highlighting/removing threads as well as remove/restore a thread reply. Discussion Moderators also earn chat mod rights as well as the ability to delete/restore comments.
Content Moderators: Can delete pages and even protect/unprotect them, similar to what the adminstrators would do. They have instant rollback rights as well.
First, screenshots are no acceptable proof, due to the fact they can be easily tampered. Second, Sannse's wall is not the place to post this. Use Special:Contact. Third, you need to remain civil to each other, and not start name-calling and harassing each other.
I'm closing this thread now. If you need to report someone, please use Special:Contact and provide adequate proof.
