Ehm... I'm sorry, since I'm not a native english speaker, "No, just continue" is a bit confusing for me ("No" is no, I suppose, but "just continue" sounds like a "yes"). If you could answer my question ("Do you still need my help") with a simple "yes" or "no" I would understand better. Ah, if I was born in England
Ah, I see. Well, it is pretty difficult anyway because there are more than 5000 pages to edit and I think it's a really bad bad bad bad idea to do that without a bot flag. Also, I cannot use AutoSave function (I use AWB) because I have to check that the bot is not replacing all the pipes(|) with |...
I'd certainly need the time to make one and see how it functions. More importantly, this is a high-priority issue that needs to be cleared - the sooner, the better. I've contacted the Staff a moment ago for the bot flag.
Ok, I see. However, there's another question to talk about. Some pages use another syntax for the Gallery Box template, like Pokemon (Franchise)
As you can see, pipes are not used here. Do I have to ignore these pages?
Following the guidelines posted here, I am posting this here because I have been unjustly blocked from both editing and entering the chat (which I have never even used) for what appears to be three days? It said November 28th 2016 when I first looked.
Given that I have never tried to maliciously edit any pages, and was only trying to help fill in wiki content, your block was both unjust and uncalled for.
I don't generally usually use the Talk Pages (and this is especially true for User Talk Pages), and I was unaware that I was forbidden from removing messages even from my own account's wall (seemed like a no-brainer to me - it's my account's wall, I'm free to do what I want with it), which was the only reason listed in the ban message, which I will put here as per request:
(The ban message when it was telling me that the block was for an entire year included the "additional reason: spam" for some reason...)
Now, I do realize that I deleted the wall content twice. I realize that now, but at the time I did not see nor read the additional posts and thought that my wipe had not gone though (so I was trying again).
Please understand that I only wished to help contribute meaningful content to the site, and have been doing so one Wiki's that I care about for years.
P.S. I may not have bothered to figure out where to post this appeal at all had the block not changed after I found your community page - as I said above, when I first looked at it, it said I would be blocked until November 28th, 2016...

I saw that, too, but I can't even just use a proxy to get around it because the auto-block actually locks down the account from any IP (and righy so - this is how you should handle that kind of stuff).
I just need to either wait an additional day or have an admin unblock my IP *sigh*...
Sorry, I didn't realise you could contact other people through this platform. Yesterday you banned me for using a picture from a different site, after I had messaged you through a different wiki you decidede to unban me, I think. But you may have forgotten to unblock my IP, cause I'm still unable to edit anything.
I noticed the Fallout 4 pages on companions had zero content on romance options so I thought I would sign up and add the videos to them then I was banned by you within a few minutes? Are videos not allowed on the Fallout wikia or something because I have no idea what I did wrong? Mind I only signed up to add that so I have no idea what the specific rules are?
Can you not edit my page, I was under the asumption that only the person whos page that its was made for, is allowed to edit their personal page. Thank you Johnatha (talk) 19:39, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
In general, there's not a lot of reason people should be editing other users' personal pages. However, there are some instances where it's perfectly appropriate:
Offensive or otherwise inappropriate content
Invalid or incorrectly used categories
Broken links (at least those that reference things that aren't likely to be created)
Other situations that create entries in Special:Insights or the Admin Maintenance Reports (broken/double redirects, tags, etc.)
If the user is active, it's preferable to leave a note for them to take care of it themselves, but often they either don't know how to, or don't care. Often they will ignore the note, but then fix it after their page has been edited by someone else.
