Pardon me, but as it would seem you guys blocked a user by the name of Kugawattan.
Allow me to shed light on this problem:
Kugawattan wasn't doing anything wrong. He was just trying to maintain his wiki. Trying to make it, well, not full of unnecessary edits or even terrible edits.
That's where ToxicHolyGrenade comes in: He came to the wiki, not even bothering to read the rules that were set up for the site. When he was blocked the first time, he threatened Kugawattan with death (though it was with one of his old accounts called "Soldine173" or something with "Soldine"). After a while, ToxicHolyGrenade (let's just call him THG for short) apologized and he was shortly after unblocked. Then, he renamed himself to "ToxicHolyGrenade". THG then made terrible and unnecessary edits, causing him to get blocked again. But, after that block he started to sockpuppet. I think they gave him a warning or something but he just kept doing it.
Now; he's threatening the admins (with not empty threats, mind you) of the TF2 Freakshow wiki to change the rules of the wiki or he'll block them.
If you consider blocking THG, blocking his IP would be best.
I'm Eric. I recently started editing a game wikia started by another user. It's a relatively new wikia so it needs a lot of input. I decided to help out but encountered a problem: I needed permissions to access the theme designer.
So I ask : Is there another way to access the theme designer with permissions from anyone other than the wikia's creator because the wikia-in-question's creator seems to be inactive, and I really love this game (mitos.is) and want to improve its wikia as best I can. Plus, being a wikia about a MMO, a widely public game, isn't it too restrictive if but one user should have all authority over the wikia?
To access the Theme Designer you need sysop rights on the Wiki in question. To have sysop rights, you need to be promoted by a local a bureaucrat or by Staff.
To be promoted by local bureaucrat, check the Special:Listadmins page on the Wiki you like. Contact the user listed with bureaucratic rights and ask to be promoted to admin status (accomplished usually by working on the Wiki and have amassed good edits and a good reputation). Though asking to be admin can turn off a lot of local admins, so it may be best to propose your idea to them and ask they do it for you.
If there are no recently active admins in the Special:Listadmins page (inactive being 60 days of inactivity) you may adopt the Wiki if you meet the requirements. Adopting will grant you both bureaucratic and sysop rights.
I was just wondering whether, being an admin, I'd be able to remove Taboola ads from my Wikis. They seem to have cropped up at some point within the last week as I hadn't seen them before then. I understand that a huge organisation like Wikia needs funding at some point down the line but they're an eyesore and sometimes the content is not appropriate.
Hello. This is Lavyny. I just had a really huge problem, and I need this conversation to be confidentially, and some proof to show that can be able to understand what the situation's about. May I request a permit to the talk to you on a private message? If there's a reply, reply to me on the talk page if you can accept or deny this request.When you made a decicion, I will understand.
I accidentally evaded global block and now I regret that! I now want to be blocked on whole Wikia because blocking me will help me! Please, block me permanently on whole Wikia! If you don't block me instantly, I will keep begging for block repeatedly!
Hello, my wikia is having and issue with a user that banned from our wikia some time ago due to breaking our rules there. The user in question Col.roachclan5. As of recently, this user has been uploading videos spreading false reasonings as to why he was banned, and is giving out private information, as well as pestering our wikia for the past 3 weeks.
I don't know what Staff can do about this, but this is getting tiring to say the least.
