  • You think we should put categories in for the characters?

    Like 'Pitcher', "Catcher", "First Baseman" or something like that? It is kinda weird to read what a pitcher does on every page with a pitcher... We can explain in the category site and that would be it :D Besides it is more coordinated then...

    I hope I can help with this wikia, cause I instantly fell in love with DnA when I saw the anime and the manga is soooo awesome too XD

    • Hello! Welcome to Wikia. This is Community Central, where you can interact with other users (and Wikia staff like me) about topics related to using Wikia. The Forum is a great place to ask questions about using Wikia and meet other users.

      For the particular question you asked above, it sounds like it's specifically about the Diamond No Ace Wiki, so you should contact one of the admins there. I see you already posted something on Linzer.Melange's Message Wall so you can also ask these other questions.

      It's great that you want to help out there, I am sure the community will appreciate it!

  • On one of the wikis that I'm on, the founder was the only admin and he has gone inactive. A Wikia Contributor is vandalising the pages, but I've got no power to stop it. Is it possible to get another admin on?

  • Hey Bert

    There's an admin on Wreck-It Ralph wikia named JosephHawk. Recently, he has been threatening me to block me. I was and never intended to harm or vandalize to wikia in any way. And he believes that I'm a spammer. Please take care of him. He has abused his power as admin. In addition, he also called me a loser and a spammer and a troll.

    • Oh, don't believe this lier, he just wants you to unblock him so he can go ahead and spam again, seriously, he's removed every image on the wiki and the admins have been restoring it, he keeps on bragging about his badges, if you want more proof this is real, please go to WIR Wiki.

      Plus, he did NOT call him a loser, OR a troll, just a spammer.

  • What current volunteer positions are open and are available?  I would like to see if I am interested in any of them.  Thanks.

    • Thanks for your interest in helping out! Typically volunteers are selected from the user community due to a long history of community interaction and supporting other users. The Community Central Forums are a great place to help out others, and you don't need any special rights or titles to do that.

  • 3DVCE Wiki is about an evolution program. I composed a couple articles on common body forms of the end-result Creatures, common movement strategies, information on the spawnable objects in the program, etc, but there isn't much solid information and most of the pages are about creatures the users submitted.

    • You've done a great job so far, creating resource articles and laying the groundwork that will attract more visitors and contributors. Have you considered drawing attention to a Forum area where people can ask questions and trade suggestions? Those conversations can also happen on Article Comments, but it's much easier to start new conversations in a Forum space. Using the newer style Forum makes use of the Notifications system to more easily follow discussions, and you can use the <wikiaforum /> tag to showcase recent discussions on the main page. Right now your content is geared toward people who already know lots about 3D creature evolution, but you may be able to attract more contributors if it's easy for people to ask questions about the stuff they don't know.

    • I already have posted a video tutorial from the developer on the main page, but much of it is basic information such as how to move around, start an evolution, or throw objects and probably does not deserve any article, but do you think putting the informational topics under a "help" category or making an FAQ page about things not in the tutorial would work?

      By the way, my original question was more about running out of informational articles, because there simply is not enough information to write about. For example, if you know how to play a simple platform game such as a Mario game and you know the behavior of the common enemies, you are not an expert. There are rare enemies, fixed levels that are always the same, a plot and storyline, et cetera. However if you know how to run an evolution simulator and you know the common types of objects, movements, body plans, and different habitats, you are an expert. The wiki may end up predominantly as a creature database and not an informational resource, and if the Mario series and its wiki was analogous to the evolution simulator, Mario games would be level creators, and the wiki would be little more than a couple of articles on the various objects and enemies that could be placed in the levels but also a large amount of articles that describe a user-made level and also gives the coding needed to play that level.

    • I think an FAQ page is always a good idea, linked prominently and functioning as a hub for the informational content. It may be that the community becomes more of a database, but you can also encourage conversation and discussion around the topic. It could become more of a social community as well. There are also options like polls and contests. Maybe even bracket tournaments (or something similar) where creatures compete for readers's votes? Being a database can still provide a foundation for users interacting and encouraging one another's creative efforts.

  • This message is directed at YazzyDream and Felinoel, but also to any other admins from either http://beeandpuppycat.wikia.com or http://bapc.wikia.com First, please accept my apologies. You both wrote in regarding closure of bee-and-puppycat.wikia.com are redirection of that URL, and I did not look close enough at the details to realize you were from different Bee and PuppyCat communities. I truly thought you were from the same one! At this time, the closed wikia's URL is redirected to beeandpuppycat.wikia.com.

    I'd like to propose that the two of you (or all of you) use this thread to discuss possibly merging. It's no problem, of course, to have two communities focused on the same subject. And if that's what we end up with, then great! But since both your communities are just starting to grow, and since it's such an exciting time for the series, perhaps combining your efforts could benefit everyone?

    Please feel free to use this thread for discussion about this. Wikia can help with the merger process if you decide to go that route, let me know if you have any questions!

    • We've already discussed merging but the Founder of bapc does not want to merge if the main URL won't still be bapc.

      Also as I've said in the other discussion elsewhere I am fairly sure that the Founder of bapc would be ok with all of the content and styles and infoboxes and whatnot being replaced by beeandpuppycat's, but she really likes the bapc URL...

  • I believe that User:TDIFan13 has broken the sockpuppet rule.

    But to be sure, can you tell me if he has. This is the suspected sockpuppet.
