Can you please delete the gta wiki, this is because I have been blocked three times. It isn't fair. The one who is responsible for all of this is a wiki member called Smurfynz. Can you please give him a warning for blocking me three times, or at least delete gta wiki and restart on it. I've worked hard on my profile. AND NOW, IT'S GONE!!!
See this blog for more information on what to do when you've got trouble with an admin.
I've been a victim of admins or moderators who had the ability to moderate and enforce the rules of wikia, who misused their privileges to global-ban folks at will, for no justifiable reason.
Particularly, I accuse Andrew Naslund and KATANAGOD. I can bring up proof that both of these admins/moderators misused their privileges on demand.
I accuse KATANAGOD of misusing admin/moderator abilities in an attempt to troll users, and Andrew Naslund of misusing his place as direct support staff to lie and express intended ignorance to the effect of denying the legitimacy of an appeal for a ban/bans.
It's only one sided when you don't have proof, or it isn't officially verifiable. I have logs, but you can't verify them because administrators and moderators aren't required to keep sufficiently detailed logs.
Am I right?
The chat interface supports this plausible abuse. Say you're in a private chat with a mod or admin and they ban you. You don't have access to the chatlog now and nothing requires them to log it either.
Now you can't ask for help from an admin on the wiki, you have to email the support team directly. Support team/Andrew Nasland ignores your appeal. You can't use wikia.
But, what I have up my sleeves isn't just logs. What if I said I could capture this behavior in action?
It's still one-sided, even with your proof. You only have proof for your side.
Your account (Ice-cool23) is not blocked. Is the block over, or was it a different account? Mind you, creating a new account to circumvent a block (whether for malicious reasons or not) is sockpuppeting, and will also get you blocked. So for your sake, DON'T answer this question. :)
The lack of logs on chat creates a gigantic blind spot. It's not your responsibility, nor the mod or VSTFer, to log it, and as I linked, logs aren't accepted anyway. Considering the amount of abuse, vandalism and trolling in chat, I think Wikia should create official logs of some kind, if technologically feasible. In the meantime... anything can happen in chat. You can't prove it.
I recommend against trying to trap VSTF. But that's just me.
1. As I explained, the reason for the one-sidedness lies in the policy of wiki. The mods/admins aren't required to justify their bans/kicks in any shape or form to perform a kick or ban. Admins/mods don't accept chatlogs they can't access. It isn't just the workings of chat or admin/modship, either. The main policy of wikia welcomes this behavior.
"The Company may terminate your account, delete your profile and any content or information that you have posted on the Service and/or prohibit you from using or accessing the Service for any reason, or no reason, at any time in its sole discretion, with or without notice."
2. Last I checked, I was IP banned. So I figured that now that I can login, the ban must surely be over.
3. I really wish it were there before this whole shindig happened. <;)
4. You or some other Staff/Admin can take my offer and see me prove it, or even fail. I'm aware that I may very well be unable to actually help in fixing any of these issues. I'm prepared to give up on them and hopefully settle for just being able to use wikia again. Despite my disdain for those issues, Wikia has a very accessible chat system. Very enjoyable.
Looking back on the past, I'm confident in at least a portion of my actions. For this most recent thing, I am innocent.
While I'd like to see if this works, I know the futility of warring against a community of nerds, right or wrong. x)
Okay, so basically I was on the creepypasta wikia and I wrote a great creepypasta. I was actually proud of my work. It took be about 3 hours to write. I was finishing up my work, and it was all said and done. It asked me for categories. So I added some. I added categories that were apprently not recognized? and then he deleted my story, and he blocked my IP address from the site so I could not talk to the other admins about this. It was a good pasta that took a lot of work, and I feel like he was abusing his power a bit. Please help me out if you can! Thank you! I should also note that I was given no warning to this, nor have I had any previous infractions with the staff on that wiki.
