  • Hey there Brandon. I'm coming to you, because I know you're active on Wookieepedia, and also a Wikia staffer. I also have been a long-time editor over at the Wook, but more recently of late, I've been focusing on the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. wikia, where I am an administrator. .I notice that some time over the last 24 to 48 hours, images are no longer displaying in galleries or some infoboxes, and that you can no longer post to User Message Walls if you are using Monobook. The Preview and Post buttons are gone.

    I much prefer the look and ease of use of Monobook, so I was curious, were the recent updates, that have so severely crippled Monobook, intentional as a way to force people away from Monobook use? Or was this an oversite and something that can be fixed? I appreciate your taking the time to look into this.

    • It's a bug that caused JS to stop working in Monobook, which is a high priority ticket with our engineers to fix.

      We would never intentionally break Monobook in order to get people to change. That'd be a really shady move, and that's not how we operate. All major product or technical-related changes are posted in our staff blog or technical updates.

  • Hi, I'm Quarx Rylzma. I was wondering if you could do a quick IP address check on a particular user, called Stormlash on the Wings of Fire Fanon Wiki. The reason why I ask is that, back in early July, someone framed me for doing something that I honestly did not do. I have suspected this user because of his deep loathing of me. Once you are done, please put the users that match Stormlash's IP address into a forum on the wiki and highlight it.

    Thank you,

    Quarx Rylzma

  • I'm trying to change my avatar but the file won't load and it says "No file selected" although the picture shows up; and then when I click save it gives me the anon avatar... I've tried using different devices, different wi-fi connections, and even different browsers.

    Can you help? xD I'm stuck using a default icon right now.

  • Hiya Brandon,

    On the Wikia Stars page the 'Connect' button under EdBoy3's name is slightly out of place. It should be moved up a slight bit.

  • Thank you for informing us about that. I wish to not file a counter-notice because it is simply easier to just create a new favicon and wordmark.

    I do have a question though. Upon reading the trademark guidelines on the F1 website, I see that my wiki will require a disclaimer with the words...

    "This website is unofficial and is not associated in any way with the Formula One group of companies. F1, FORMULA ONE, FORMULA 1, FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, GRAND PRIX and related marks are trade marks of Formula One Licensing B.V."

    ...onto every single page, since we are unaffiliated with them. Do you have a way onto which I can place the text of the disclaimer below every page (like at the main page)?

    Note: final paragraph altered from original version.

  • Apparently I've been caught in a global block


    I do have two accounts, LadyVader and WildloughRhulain, but I keep each account for separate wikis, one for the Star Wars Fanon wiki and one for the Redwall wikis.

    Blocked by VegaDark for the following reason: This IP address is prevented from editing across the entire wikia network due to vandalism or other disruption by you or someone who shares your IP address.

    I'm not a vandal. The only pages I've been working on have been my character pages over there. Can someone please help?

    • Nikolai, you are done in this conversation. You are causing needless drama and being completely unhelpful. Please remove yourself from this so we can actually help Lady Vader without having to deal with you causing problems. Thank you.

      Nikolai, please calm down. Lady Vader isn't the only one who has experienced this type of problem before. Tupka provided a link showing how to change her IP address. Odds are, she has a dynamic IP address that will change on its own, thus solving her current predicament.

      This block has been in place since September 28th, and it only just started affecting Lady Vader. I would venture to guess that it's not even affecting her anymore, given that she's able to post here on Community Central. It's a global block, so it would affect her everywhere if it was still an issue.

      I talk to Wildy about doing the changes to her IP, might be possibly she need a friend to work on that since shes not good at changing IPs, I myself am not good at working IPs or anything else at this point.

  • Hi! I know you're somewhat busy at that time, but I just wanna say thanks for teaching me a lesson. If you could remember me, I had been globally banned due to harassment. Here were the block details for reference:

    The block was made by Brandon Rhea.

    Reason given: This username or IP address is prevented from editing across the entire Wikia network due to vandalism or other disruption.

    The blocker also gave this additional reason: Terms of Use violations: abusive behavior.

    Start of block: April 6, 2014

    Expiry of block: October 6, 2014

    Intended blockee: Repeater1919

    Block ID: #92245

    You banned me due to harassment; my actions on

    When I got banned, it taught me valuable life lessons. I now learnt to handle my temper and I'm now more emotionally balanced. Now I'm finally going to talk things more maturely. I'm now more friendly. Your actions even helped me become a better person in real life.

    I just want to say thank you for making me a better person. If you haven't banned me before, I think it would be hard for me to improve.

    Can we be friends, if that's fine with you?

    • Hey Repeater. Thanks for leaving me this message. We don't usually get messages like this, where something positive came out of a negative experience. I'm glad you were able to reflect on the things you said and improve how you talk to people!

  • - how can you say "No longer in use"? Have you surreptitiously deleted all the Wikia tour pages from this site and the dozen or more individual Wikia sites that use them?

      Loading editor
    • It's no longer in use on Community Central, and we no longer provide support for it. The pages were out of date and, due to our lack of support, were not going to be updated or maintained. Local versions were not deleted and can continue to be used as local projects, but it's not a Wikia-supported project.
