  • Hi, Sannse. Here to annoy you about that one Idea Wiki.

    Remember that little incident with some guy that wanted to be an admin? While I don't remember his name, but I remember when I told him "da iw shouldnt exist m8" or something, then things were out of control...

    Well I officially acknowledge I was sooo rude with him. Thankfully things went better.

    And while I still hold my view on that IW, I'm glad there's finally an admin on that wiki. Hopefully he'll put things in order. I've even congratulated him about that achievement on this, but... he doesn't even use the talk page.

    I know that I'm blocked nearly a year ago, and that my block expires next month, (inb4 sannse permablox me on iw), so I'm thinking about... you know, do stuff there again? I mean, I'm not gonna destroy/whine/hack/insultotherpeople, but I want this place to look like a better one (inb4 wikiman is permablock). I hope we can negotiate with Gree443.

    Or you can ignore this message and block me for another 6 months. I won't be in that wiki as much as I did before (that might be true, that might be not).

    All the best, -wikiman meet. talk. 01:27, April 18, 2014 (UTC)

    • Whether you edit there once your ban expires is up to you, and the admin(s) on that wikia.  Unless things get excessive again and we need to step in.

      My advice would be to continue to avoid that wikia, and find other places to be.  There is no need for you to return, and plenty of other things to do on other wikias

  • How do you get new wikis to have talk pages instead of message walls

  • Would you say that "whitelisting" a chat is against wikia policies?

    By whitelisting I mean the opposite of blacklisting: that only users who are om a specific list of people can access the chat.

    • That's a good suggestion Lumoshi

      It's just a suggestion, but maybe you could use a private IRC channel or something that other users wouldn't know about.

      We already have a backup IRC in case the wikia chat is bugging out, perhaps we could set up another one just for these purpsoes. Thanks for the suggestion.

  • Hi! I need to ask you a question about redirecting. Just say someone makes a wiki about a movie but then stops using it and I create the real one how can I redirect the unused one to mine?

  • The blogs that you created for bad admins relate to the situation I have. Lordganon is a selfish admin on Alternative History I have an article transwikied to Alternate Future Wiki and he deleted the link because he thought it was spam and blocked me for it. So I decided to say "hi" on every wiki he's on to intimidate him and then he permanently blocked me. He also blocked NovaSims because of her signature and the admins there are just instigator. I have requested to demote Lordganon and I think since you have sympathy with my problems, I ask to please demote Lordganon.

    • Please read the blogs again, especially the second.  That lays out what you can do, although from what I see, you are probably best simply walking away from that wikia and using others.

      Love Robin's first reply here is a good summary of that blog post.

  • Hi Sannse! I would like to ask about a feature recently implemented across Wikia called Must Watch Videos, as not much was ever said about it, and it was implemented without notice. Over at the Call of Duty Wiki, we have a forum going on about whether we want this new addition to remain in place, and so far the consensus is no.

    I would like to ask if it would be at all possible to disable this feature, as it's looking like our community would prefer to do so.

    Thanks much, Joe Copp

    • Hi Joe,

      We are just testing the "Must Watch" section at the moment - which is why you see it sometimes and not always (and possibly in different formats, I don't recall if that's in the test)

      The testing will be over soon, and then it will disapear while we look at the data... so this one is a "watch this space"

      Can you pass that on to the others in the forum please?  Thanks

  • Hi. I am a researcher of Wikipedia, Piotr Konieczny from Department of Sociology at Hanyang University (http://scholar.google.pl/citations?user=gdV8_AEAAAAJ&hl=pl), and I am currently conducting a survey of English Wikipedia ArbCom members active in the years 2004-2009 (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Arbitration_Committee_and_decision-making_on_Wikipedia#Wikimedia_Policies.2C_Ethics.2C_and_Human_Subjects_Protection). Since your email is inactive on English Wikipedia, and you don't seem to be active there any more, I am leaving you this message here in hope you express interest in taking the short, 2-3 minute survey. Your privacy, confidentiality and anonymity would be fully respected and if you wish you would receive a draft of the paper before it is published to read and offer comments on. If you have any questions about my research, or simply wish to look at the survey (under no obligation of returning it), please email me (using my Wikipedia email form is probably the easiest, or try piokon at post dot pl). Sincerely, --Piotrus (talk) 03:27, April 9, 2014 (UTC)

    • Hi Piotrus,

      I've emailed you, I'm happy to help if I can

      And thanks for the kitten on Wikipedia.  I have too much to do here to be active over on Wikipedia now, although I have a lot of affection for the project and pride in being a part of it

  • Hello there; I am an admin at the LOTR wiki. There was a discussion in the wiki that our automatic messages for registered users and anons are not working. The message that is sent to them is from the Wikia staff. We would be grateful if we are assisted in this. Thank you.

    • Submit to Special:Contact/bug

      Meantime, you can try editing MediaWiki:Welcome-user with an Admin's username (plaintext, not a link), which should bypass the variable.

      Note that this does NOT address the variable which seems to be bugged and should still be reported so the techies can fix it.

        Loading editor
    • Actually, in checking… you have the wrong content in MediaWiki:Welcome-user, which should only have as content

      • @latest - most recently active admin, or Wikia staff if no admins have been active in 60 days
      • @sysop - most recently active admin (with no fallback to Wikia staff)
      • A specific username - in plain text, not as a link
      • @disabled - entirely turn off welcoming of new users

      What you have there should be in MediaWiki:Welcome-message-user, or perhaps MediaWiki:Welcome-message

      Because MediaWiki:Welcome-user does not have the proper variable set, instructions which depend on it fall back to the Staff Defaults.

    • Yep, looks like that was the problem.

      If it's not settled after the fix, please let us know

        Loading editor
    • Yes, the problem is already fixed. Thank you very much!
