  • As you have probably noticed, I have been assigned to help out the Mass Effect Wiki during the pre and post release of Mass Effect Andromeda. I have been working directly with Temporaryeditor78 over the past month. They appeared to be the most active admin at the time, and I only need the approval of one admin to complete work. Waiting on the responses of multiple admins can be very time-consuming. Time we don't always have to get projects done.  

    This doesn't mean that you are any less important to us. Your input to anything we (Fandom staff) do on the wiki is certainly welcome. Temporaryeditor78 has recently joined our Community Council. Because of this, he is even easier to reach than before and I no longer require the use of my talk wall to do so. Unfortunately, this also means that you will have less of a chance to see what we are discussing. 

    I don't in any way want you to feel that we are purposely leaving you out. That is not my intent. What I need to know from you, is how and when you would like to be informed. Do you feel the need to be included in specific projects? Our only 'big' project at this point is a Super Walkthrough article page. We will design and create it using information and videos created by us. Temporaryeditor78 made sure we were aware that only the default Ryder or a helmet covered Ryder would be acceptable in a video and we will respect that. If you have concerns, we would love to hear them. 

    I will be around to edit at least till my assignment ends on April 4th. As I am a Mass Effect fan myself, I will probably be around longer to help, but on my own time. I have also been tasked with the growth of Discussions, so I will be participating there until the 18th. I will help with answering posts and moderating. 

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know.

  • Hello there fellow wikians, and welcome to this special edition of the Staff Interview series! Today, we have a questionnaire filled out by none other than Rappy 4187!

    1. When did you become a Wikia Staff Member?

    I was hired by Wikia on July 30th, 2012 to fulfill a role on the Community Support Team in a technical position. 2. What department of Wikia do you work in?

    I work on the Community Support Team as a Community Technical Support Manager. I mainly respond to technical requests through Special:Contact -- bug reports that involve JavaScript, CSS, advanced templates/infoboxes, and our various extensions and configurations. I also publish the Technical Updates as well as write an occasional blog about the more techy stuff. 3. What do you enjoy most about Wikia?

    Hands down: the diversity. Wikia's communities and users are all different and are filled with extensive talent and knowledge. I love working with users to build their communities in the more technical aspects. 4. If I recall correctly, you were a member of the VSTF before being hired by Wikia, right?

    Yes, for 4 months prior. The VSTF was a great opportunity for me as I worked on many wikias cleaning up spam and vandalism. This dedicated volunteer group works very hard to keep our communities enjoyable for readers. 5. What is your favorite wiki to hang out at?

    Currently, I do not have one ;(- although in my day to day work I am in contact with a great many interesting wikias. That is one of the great things about working here - you get to see and learn so much from the variety of topics that are out there. 6. On average, how many new staff members are hired?

    Keep in mind: Wikia Staff is a paid position. As any employer, we hire people as positions become available or when the company sees the need to expand and hire people for new positions. 7. What is it like in San Francisco?

    As some may not know, I work remotely from sunny Florida and have only been to San Francisco three times. However, the weather there is so nice compared to Florida's high humidity. 8. What's your advice for anyone interested in becoming a Staff member?

    I worked on Wikia as an editor for years. I taught myself how to use wikitext and HTML markup for page design and later branched into CSS and JavaScript to have more control over my wikia's look and feel. I've helped in designing some nice scripts over the years to make my site look different from others, such as this flip through document or this clan card maker. My advice is to do what you are passionate about and try to learn as much as possible. Help other users out and have fun with what you do. When you feel confident in your knowledge, you can apply for a job directly. Good luck! 9. Aside from Wikia, what else do you enjoy to do?

    I enjoy a variety of games, mainly MMOs, as well as movies and TV shows. Frequently, movie quotes have a way of sneaking into my everyday work. (Some people say that I am like Dinozzo from NCIS). 10. If you could be Wikia CEO for 1 day, what would you do? Translate this.

    I’d give everyone a day off -- with pay -- for the awesome job they do (it may be a Saturday though).

    Stay tuned for our next edition!

    Hi :)

    I'm adding your finnish namespace translations to the existing translations, but there's a couple missing that I noticed, would it be possible to have them as well? There may be others, but these were the ones I noticed when going through the files I needed to edit for the ones you already did.

  • ... is an error in your profile:

    "Mikäli olet suomenkielinen, voit ottaa minuun yhteyttä myös Yhteisöwikin kautta, missä olen ylläpitäjä."

    "Missä" is wrong, it has to be "jossa".

  • Aloha, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Kuby101 a administrator of a well working and spam free wiki. I am here to ask you to consider me as the 20 th helper across wikia. You may be wondering why I am asking this. My sole purpose of being a helper is to help the wiki from spams and be the best user I can possibly be. By considering/ hopefully becoming a helper, you have given me the key to the door of perpetuation on wikia. With over 2,500 edits across wikia, I think I am ready to get the "key" to the door. Apart from my this, I am very mature in advanced wiki editing with a vast knowledge on templates. Please consider me. It would be a honour to be a helper.

    • Hi Kuby101,

      Helpers are usually recruited for the IVT according to what foreign languages Wikia needs covered. There is a lot you can do to help keep wikis free from spam without global powers; such positions can't generally be applied for, but suitable users with a history of reverting vandalism are selected for the VSTF when new members are needed. Only Staff may promote Helpers, but with helpership comes much more than access to anti-spam tools, and it's not a mere "key" awarded to helpful contributors -- there are numerous exemplary users working for the good of multiple communities across Wikia, all of whose efforts are appreciated equally.

      Best of luck with your wiki, and happy continued editing!
