I've been trying to figure out how to message the Wikia Staff on enabling .SWF uploads to our wiki, Bully Fanon Wiki, for a project the community is doing.
We are creating a yearbook of fan-created projects, and I am bureaucrat/re-founder there, and also the only one who knows how to use flash, so I was making an SWF file to make the actual yearbook. Of course, we'll need the option of uploading SWF files on there available.
It is a very low-traffic wiki, so malicious uploads are unlikely.
I decided to come to you instead of going to the thread again. I'll 1st start off by saying i thought it was ok to say the N word because in previous wikis i've been in they allow you to use certain curse words. I just thought the same applied here. but the saying i mentioned are what people go by where i'm from. people dont waste time hiding behind a computer.
2. here's the link to the wiki I was banned from and my logs.http://degrassi.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/TheChickenLawyer I suggest you talk to both amins (Loveyea & DegrassiFan) about it. because I was mad about the comments i made on that wiki not matching the ban. I have several people look at it and they wonder the same thing like me. while your looking at the log.. go through comments starting with June 20th till the day I got banned & make sure to read the reasons I got banned for first that way you can see what I mean.
& honestly... is calling a character a "hot mess" or comparing their actions to a drunk person considered disturbing? & I think the amin got a comment mixed up. in 1 of those comments youll find that i SPACIFICALLY said "I wanted the storyline to die out. but I think the admin thought i said something different. & "harassment" like WTH man?! it is not against the rules to look at wiki activity everynight for 6 months no matter how much they hate it.
lastly... thanks for willing to help me. the admins are like people when they see a JW at their door.. they completely ignore them. I dont curse or say mean things to users... i dont even know anyone. I just leave my comments an thats it.. i only check replies when i go through the activity everyday at midnight.
Hi, on a wiki I am a part of, if you move the cursor over my username while I am in chat, it says I joined in January 1970. Obviously, this site was not around then, and I am not 46 years old haha. I was just wondering if this could be fixed. I tried refreshing, then waiting to see if it would go away, but it won't. Thanks.
Hi, that's an odd one. Your user record shows the date to be this year, so I don't know where the system is getting 1970!
You could report the bug via Special:Contact, but I'm not sure it will be one that's fixed quickly (or even at all). We have to prioritize and this one isn't stopping anyone doing something or causing other major problems. You are welcome to send it in though
Hi ms. Sannse. I would like to report this site: http://survivor-org.wikia.com as for the past several years it has violated Wikia terms and conditions, mainly, soliciting personal information from users, some of which are minors.
Hi, I didn't delete your wiki, I deleted a blog post on this wikia. Partly because it wasn't a real blog post, just a detached sentence, and partly because of the bad language, which we don't allow on this wikia.
A wikia is a whole site, all the pages that exist under the same base URL, which will be something like wikia-name.wikia.com
If you see community.wikia.com at the start of the URL, you are on Community Central, the wikia for learning and sharing about Wikia as a whole.
I don't go into chat on demand, especially when it is a demand rather than a request.
If you need help, please use Special:Contact. You are also welcome to PM me if you see me in chat, but that's unlikely this week - I'm on vacation in England, so in a different timezone and not in "work mode".
What about just telling people you dislike, hate, or despise them but not doing anything extreme like threats, harass, intimidate, abuse, etc and not even using swear words or insult just their feelings.
Telling someone you dispise them certainly sounds like being abusive to me...
But until it reaches the extreme level that requires staff involvement, it's up to the admins of the wikia in question. I would hope that any good admin would warn someone off from nastyness like that, and ban if it continued.
I would suggest they calmly say to the admin something like "I find that language offensive, please can you aviod using it with me".
Or, they could understand that people have different levels of tollerance for strong language, and decide that, while them feeling offended is understandable, it's also understandable that someone else might find the language okay.
Or, they might just decide that that wikia is a place with language that they don't like, and so go to another one.
Of course, if this is on the GTA Wiki, it's probably a different thing to it being on the Tomas the Tank Engine Wiki. Context matters
