I was reading your profile and I was interested in your template so I pressed edit to see if I can use it on another wiki, I tried to copy it but I pressed paste instead and a random list got exposed. Forgive me
Hello, I just noticed that I was blocked on Teen Titans Wiki by an admin with an expiry time of 50 years but I do not know why, he/she didn't give a reason. This block happened back in January 18, 2016 the admin is OzzMan, I can't message him at all, I can't do anything at all on the Wiki. I don;t know what I did, I don't know why I was blocked and I don't believe I should be blocked nbecause I don't remember doing anything wrong. Can you please help? Thank You.
I think if you go to the OzzMan's wall on here (CC) and read the last thread you may find your anwser. I think if you explain you did not know and are a new contributor, maybe he will understand. That is the only reason I could find.
@Ripto22475 or Maurice.136, I am a new admin, is there a blog or something that discusses when a block interferes or causes a major violation. I just want to know but I am sure I will only block users that vandalize, users who are trolling, or a reason like that.
Fedual Fairy Tale, there aren't a lot of cases when we jump in, although very occasionally we might ask the admin to reconsider if there are special circumstances (which doesn't generally include blocks for bad or no reason).
On that wiki you would be allowed to insist everything is written with that Christian point of view, but you would't be able to exclude someone of another religion who was keeping to that rule, just because of their own religion. Does that make sense? It's a bit of a subtle distinction.
It would also be a problem if you banned as a method of harassment. For example if you kept banning and doing other actions in order to keep giving unnecessary/false notifications to someone you are in a dispute with.
If you read the User Conduct part of the ToU and the Wikia Community Guidelines, you should see the other actions that are likely to make staff intervene.
Sorry for jumping on your thread with this 14matthi, I felt it was an important question. I see Maurice and Ripto have replied to your original question, thanks both.
That's quite alright, the problem seems to be that he belives he warned me about something I wasn't aware could be wrong and he never did give me any warning. I think I now know what may have happened I uninetionally put in a false info about a character on the wiki I got blocked on but I had no idea it was incorrect and it only happened once. I seems to be a huge misunderstanding so I'm trying to get a full understanding from the admin of that wiki because I am a new contributer to that wiki and had no idea of the rules or anything.
@Sannse Thanks I understand. And thank you very much for replying to my question!
@14matthi I wanted to help a fellow contributor understand why they were blocked. When I looked to help you understand yesterday. I could not find a reason or a warning. I was going to write I was confused as well until I seen the last thread on his wall explaining why (for adding DC comics information on that wikia) to another contributor. I was not sure when I replied to this thread, if that was the reason or was there another reason. I am glad he anwsered with why. I hope things work out for you. All the best to you!
OK Now I think I may understand what happened completly and had zero knowlage of it at the time. Maybe if I can explain that to him he'll understand. Alrhough I'm still not certain, I'll just have to wait until he responds.
Chatmods here have to have been in chat a long time, need to be very well respected by the community and meet other criteria including having the ability to stay calm when there are problems on chat. As Maurice said, we don't promote on request, just when staff think we need more moderators and there is someone we think suitable. Sorry
Sorry, I won't have a tool to do that. The only way I know how to do it is manually - copying the image to your computer, and the reuploading on the other wiki. And that would take a lot of time, which I don't have
Can someone help me please? I've been tying to remember what the name of the yellowish, greenish sword is called for 30 minutes now I just can't seem to remember someone please help me I can't remember...please.
First of all this is someone's message wall so the chances of you getting a reply is already next to none. Instead you should have posted this on the forums but I will address this next.
Second, your question is so incredibly vague that there is absolutely no chance that someone is going to give you an answer that satisfies you. You're asking for the name of a sword but have yet to tell us if the sword is from a book series, a movie, a tv show, a folk song, a legend, or even a one off picture somewhere. Before we can help you further you need to elaborate on where the sword is from.
Hello. For some reason unknown to me, I'm having trouble with commenting on some wikis- and I haven't done anything wrong, because I'm not that type of person. Could you please give me some advice? Thanks.
Thank you, Sannse.
I am sorry to have troubled you, but now everything's fine. It was a specific page on DragonVale Wikia, the Dragons page. I was trying to reply to someone comment, but it wouldn't let me. Then when I tried to post a comment it wouldn't let me. (As I Said, I haven't done anything wrong.) It didn't give me any clues as to why it wouldn't let me, no links or anything. I thought it wouldn't let me comment on this page, but thankfully it did. I didn't test my Commenting on other wikia's. I came back to it today, and tried to comment again on that same page, and it let me.
Maybe it was lack of Internet, but I have got pretty good Wifi. If it happens again, I will try to be more specific. Thank you.
A community I am currently in would like to demote a bureaucrat over there in favour of a new one; but are unsure of the proceedures towards doing so. Do we need to make a community vote or anything else? Please respond ASAP. Thank you for your time.
In order to demote a bureaucrat, you'll need to make a community vote in the form of a blog or forum post. (Polls can be rigged, which is why they're usually not accepted.) Give the community time, such as at least a week, to vote; then if the majority wish for the bureaucrat's demotion, send in details via Special:Contact/general.
Another thing to note is that admins cannot block any of the voters from voting, though the case here doesn't seem to be one of abuse, so you should be fine. In the event that admins are blocking voters, however, use the aforementioned contact form.
And because votes can be rigged too: you could set a rule that only people who've been active for a month and/or have more than 30 content edits can vote, to prevent sock and meatpuppets. You can alter those numbers dependent on the nature of the community, but keep it reasonable.
