Hey mate! I have a question pertaining to adminship at the Minecraft Wiki. My friend there, Pathos, the only active bureau, said that if no one had objections to promoting me to admin, he would make the decision himself. It's been about a month since he said that, and he hasn't been active since he said it. The wiki has recently gotten 3 trolls and unfortunately there are no active admins or bureaus there at the moment, and I can't stop their edits with my rollback powers. Should I stick it out until he returns? He has stated that he fully supports my promotion here.
Hey, for the vandalism you can report that to the VSTF Wiki so the VSTF can deal with it in the meantime. About the admin rights, maybe asking again and if he doesn't respond then you can do an adoption request here on cc: Adoption:Requests.
JPhil is correct; the Admin Mentor Program is currently on hiatus. We're re-evaluating the future of the program and hope to relaunch it sometime this year. Until then, we're not adding any additional mentors.
Regarding your Wikia Stars application, yes we have—though the only one we have is for you nominating another user. I'm assuming that's what you're referring to, and you didn't nominate yourself?
I don't think hypotheticals about globally blocked users becoming Featured Wikians are particularly useful (or realistic), so I would just say that if someone wants to be unblocked, they can contact us.
Hey! I was wondering if you received my application for Wikia Star. On the FAQ page it states "You should have received a confirmation email. If you did not receive a confirmation email, please contact us.". I did not receive a confirmation email. Did you get it?
Hi there! Sorry if I seem a little impatient for this adoption, I'm just so excited! I made a page a while back stating I'd like to adopt BENDROWNEDYOURTURN wiki, it was originally my wiki. My old account was Ilovecreepypasta and that's what owned it until it was blocked because I was underage. I have become of age, however. I'm just wondering if I need to do anymore until I can adopt this wiki. http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Adoption:BENDROWNEDYOURTURN_wiki
Ah, I have a question that ponders me for some time.
I have started adding manga plots to some articles at my wiki. Everything would be fine if I had the access to the images, to upload them there. However, I am not certain if it would violate copyright.
So, what would be the best course of action here? I would hate to see the articles without them.
You would need to add the licensing stuff, which can be added through a dropdown on the upload page. Also add a Fair Use Rationale box for good measure in the summary. You can see what I mean by looking at the template on the Bleach wiki
Hey. The above answers are good ways for how you can license images. As for what the appropriate license is, I can't really answer that question. I don't know what the images are, and Wikia isn't in a position to offer legal advice. Sorry!
Can you globally block TNGIII Naked Penis from every wikia? He was a known vandalizer from the Villains Wiki who uploaded videos of himself naked to the wiki, and he also vandalized some of the articles themselves. Thank you.
Hi, I just nominated myself a Wikia Star. You may welcome me for Wikia Stars if my star application was successful with the staff members and you respond in case then it appears next. If you have anything to say to me, I'll be surprised to know that on the form and what's next with Wikia Stars programming?
Lt. Allen wrote: I just nominated myself already for Wikia Stars, so the process works. Later until next year to become one by what I learned on Wikia and in chat.
I think Brandon was pretty clear when he said the staff is not accepting your nomination. I would suggest not nominating yourself again and not trying to convince him to accept you. It would probably help the situation if you did the above things.
