Hello, could you please help me, or point me in the right direction, about a problem i've been having with the wikia app. The pages don't load. I've tried with several different kinds of pages and nothing works. Is the app functioning properly or is it just me?
Telling someone to hurt/kill themselves is not a threat, and this example takes it a level down to wishing they could tell someone to hurt themselves. So there is no ToU issue there.
I also see that the post says that the OP wanted to say this in game. In which case, it's none of Wikia's business, and something that the mods of that game would need to deal with.
Generally speaking, telling someone to kill themselves is considered abusive. So we sometimes give a global block for that (depending on the severity of the situation).
However, there's an exception for hyperbole, like "go jump off a cliff" or "go boil your head". In these cases it's obvious that the intent isn't actually to encourage someone to kill themselves, it's just an exaggerated way to say "go away" or something similar. "Go drink bleach" would probably fall in that category (although, as said above, that doesn't apply in this case anyway).
Creating redirects here won't do much to help other communities - we'd likely want to tweak it in another manner if the red links were of particular concern. I'll bring it up with the team, but I don't expect it to be a priority (since Special:UserGroupRights is a pretty niche page).
The Project:Image review nit should be handled as bug, somebody has to fix the special page after Wikia decided if they are ever going to use it separately (=not only as proper subset of another right.) In theory it's not complete nonsense, see commons:Project:License_review, but in practice…
Otherwise (not the broken image review) redirections to sections of shared help pages work like a charme, everywhere. For examples see the Freeciv project pages. Of course it would be better to create those redirections automatically (bot-job).
Update, I've collected this zoo in Category:Special redirect, 22 project + 2 help pages. Apart from the at the moment missing image review and oversight issues there are two other oddities on the special page:
btw, I see your main page has a bit of a problem with the columns. I tried to fix it, but didn't succeed. But I've asked others to have a look and see what's wrong (I suspect an unclosed table, but I can't see it)
Okay, I've added the wiki to the footer. It will likely not show up on other wikis for a while, but eventually the change will filter through
On the home page, Kirkburn had fixed it for you, but not the content doesn't start until after the ad :-/ I'll look to see if I can help (or will ask Kirkburn to again.)
It's possible to merge two wikis on the same topic. The first step is to talk to the community of both wikis about the change (if there is a community there). Then you should transfer any good content from the other wiki to yours. When you have done that you can contact us to ask for them to be merged, and for the other wiki's URL to be set as primary. Does that all make sense?
Nope, there is no easy way to do it. Building your wiki to make it attractive is a good start, you want those googlers to find you! Have a look at Help:Search Engine Optimization for some advice.
There's also some help here on building a community. There are pages and videos linked from there too, look around for more!
With chat, word of mouth is important too. If someone from your community enjoys you chat, they will hopefully tell their friends in other communities. And then hopefully those friends will tell their friends... and so on.
Zambie, look, we already let you slide once. You were a lot calmer after my warning, but recently you started doing those bad things again. It's you own fault for acting like that and now you have to accept your punishment.
