I have read on Wikipedia that Wikia publishes all user-provided text under copyleft licenses. To my knowledge this means that all text but on wikia is put in the public domain. I have told a friend an idea I had for a video game on his measagewall on Ohga Shrugs Wikia. Does this mean I put my idea in the public domain. Also if this is true dose this mean I can not draw a picture of the a main character of my video game idea and post on my deviant art page because deviant art gives the copy write to all art post on the site to the artist who made it.
First off, I wish to correct you on how Wikia licenses their text. Copyleft means that a work can be distributed freely, but that it MUST be distributed under the same license as the original publishing. In Wikia's case, they publish their texts under CC-BY-SA, which means that you are free to share and change any texts on here, however you must give attribution to the original and also use the same license. So no, Wikia does not do public domain. (Besides, as far as I know.
As well, I'd like to quell your fears about your idea. To my knowledge, Wikia cannot take control of your idea. The idea of copyright in general is that anything original that you create is yours. That means that you can distribute it under any license you wish, whether full-on copyright, Creative Commons, or public domain. I do wish to mention that by posting it to Wikia in a form, you have given Wikia, at minimum, the ability and legal permission to display your idea to others -- but don't fret, they can't claim it as their own! Actually, if Wikia tried to claim your idea as their own, it would be copyright infringement, which itself is illegal.
Basically, since the idea originated from you, you can do whatever you so desire with it and Wikia cannot take the idea from your hands. So don't worry.
...And even if laws did say that doing what you did would take the copyright off your hands, the Wikia team is not going to hit you with a lawsuit for creating art of the characters in your game.
(To anybody: If I'm wrong on any of these points, feel free to correct me. This is just off what I personally know.)
Wikia Staff generally do not intervene on local issues. If you have problems with a local admin, contact them on their Message Wall here on Community Central and try to work out something. If they don't feel receptive to your side of the story, you should probably just find another wiki to contribute. :)
Not all staff members check their message wall regularly. If you want a reply, send it to Special:Contact/general, and a member of staff will reply to you. However, most of the time, they don't interfere.
por favor mí ajude,fui bloqueado da wikia universo ben 10, eu tentei passar uma pagina para meu nome para que ela não tivesse sido alterada de novo, pagina ( runa alpha) , mas a pagina foi perdida, eu avisei a um magistrado o que eu fiz, e ele disse que estavam resolvendo, depois eu fui bloqueado por um grão-mestre. eu acho que mereço ser perdoado poeque eu não tive intenção de excluir a pagina, e eu contatei a moderação da wikia
Você precisa entrar em contato com o administrador que te bloqueou (User:Zé Luiz) e explicar a situação. A Wikia geralmente não interfere em problemas locais, então a sua melhor chance é entrar em contato com ele, para que ele possa mudar o seu bloqueio. Obrigada.
Hi! Wikia Staff doesn't generally deal with social issues; but this does seem a bit troubling. I'd like to point out, though, that Wikia Staff doesn't phalanx on request. I'd suggest ignoring the user and/or editing a different wiki so you don't have as many interactions with this user. If you have further problems after that I'd suggest sending in a S:C form; and not bring this to a community central talk page where that user could be watching.
I just wanted to say thank you for the service this website provides. I really appreciate the no interference of ads and also not interfering from leaving the page with the back button as answers.com seems to do. I will be sure to occasionally click ads in support but on my own terms.
I am bureaucrat Wiki Steven Universe in Spanish, I was changing the background image of the wiki to work, but after I did that and save the image is not seen, and no user sees it either, not if you are arranging something that does not allow to display. I also need to know the correct size to place the background image
So today in the Candy Crush Silly Wiki chat, someone named Lefty7788 spammed a banned word on the chat. Someone made a typo of the word bomb that is closely related to an insult against women. I have proof in this picture
