  • Hello how are you? I hope you are well. I am one of thousands of Dead Frontier players. and I would like to recover one of my DF accounts. the User in the game is: Terrok. It would be a great honor to be able to recover that account. Inverted a lot of time in the game ..... I wish you could help me. That would make me happy. I would like to donate but I do not have money.

  • Sorry to bother you about something like this, but I feel a Staff member might be going too far in his quest to change the wiki to be more mobile friendly.

    The staff member in question is FishTank. The wiki in question is Encyclopedia SpongeBobia.

    Even though numerous members of the community, including myself, have expressed our disliking to the idea that he has proposed, he seems to be continuing to push the change.

    While I understand that some might feel the change is necessary, I feel like the problem that FishTank presents is not something that is the fault of the wiki, but rather the coding on the Mercury skin.

    More information can be found here: [1], [2], [3], [4]

    I don't really expect much from you. I am perfectly fine if you disagree with me. It is just I feel like a staff member needs to look at what FishTank is doing and make sure that he has not crossed the line.

      ARE U SERIOUS !? I did that with the local staff of a wiki I go to by trolling . Anyway please be serious. 

      then start a blog on this wiki, outline what happened that you guys disapprove of in strong terms. Staff hate this, if you can make it as outregous as the situation actually is and give full details to back it up; staff will be forced to within a week to respond publicly. Much more effective than SC

      What is SC?

  • Hello, I'm new around here for editing and new account. I've never been on here before only to read, but I was wondering if you can answer my question? Is it possible to have two of the same wiki? Like not copying or anything but you know two of the same thing? Just asking because Chobits, Sailor Moon, I think Pita Ten does to, and Tokyo Mew Mew more wiki then just one.

    • Yes, duplicate wikis are allowed. Per the Wiki Creation Policy:

      Communities are about working together. We allow multiple communities on the same topic, but we strongly encourage you to find and join an existing wiki instead of trying to create a new project about an existing topic -- for many interests, we may already have an active community that needs your help or a dormant project that you can adopt and bring to life.

      In the wider web, communities about the same topic tend to merge sooner or later, or the less popular project(s) are abandoned as editors move to the more complete website. It is much easier to incorporate good ideas into an existing community than to try to merge content or create "sister project" structures later.

      Advantages of working together:

      There is a better chance of reaching the number of active contributors needed to sustain a community over time New ideas can use already-developed infrastructure of established communities, such as templates, infoboxes, and help pages New ideas can enliven or provide new direction to a faltering community if presented with kindness and tact

      Disadvantages of creating a duplicate community:

      Covering the same ground in the same way as other communities makes it more difficult to attract readers and contributors Re-creating work that has already been improved by many collaborators can be tiring and unnecessary If you don't rewrite topics in your own words, you may be tempted to copy from other freely licensed communities. If you do, you must remember: Copying the hard work of a dedicated community may cause hard feelings, damaging the reputation of your community and making it more difficult to attract contributors You may not copy content from other communities, or from Wikipedia, without providing proper credit and a link back to the source Duplicating the exact text of another website severely penalizes the search engine results for the more recent community If you really want a separate community on an existing topic, please use your creativity to present the information in a different way -- you could be serious where others are silly (or vice versa), be opinionated where others are neutral, focus on fan activity or trivia rather than encyclopedic information, or anything else that will set you apart from existing projects. A community which only copies content from other communities may be closed if it fails to provide credit or begin editing the text to make the project different and distinct.

  • Hi, I have a wiki, it is called the Best Friends Next Door Wikia, I made a big mistake, and now all the pages are gone. I was wondering if you could delete it for me so I could start over.

  • Hello Jen. I was hoping you could answer a question that I got and possibly help me.

    I am admin of the Descendants Wiki. I have spotted an user creating a second wiki with the same contents snatched from my wiki.

    Is there anyway that wiki could be deleted?

  • Hi, Jen. In PewDiePie Tuber Simulator Wikia can I please be given Bureaucrat and Admin status? It's because the admin and founder of the wikia left it.

    Hope you can help and have a nice day! 💗💗💗

    Note: The link can be found in my user page.

  • Hey, Jenburton, a friend and I seem to be having an issue with a troll on our wiki. My friend has blocked him once already and the troll somehow got around the block. My friend blocked the troll a second time, but we don't know if the troll will somehow get around it again.

    The troll's username is Yupton, and here's a link to the wiki that I'm talking about:

    http://animaniacsfans.wikia.com/wiki/Animaniacsfans_Wiki

    If you or anyone else can help us in any way, that would be very much appreciated. Thank you for your time and have a nice day.

  • Quick question, I was wondering if it was possible to be able to see/prove when a wikia account was created?  I was blocked on a wiki for no reason and account creation was disabled, but I created a wiki before I was blocked.  I want to ask the admin directly, but I'm afraid they're going to block me . I want to prove to that wiki that I created that account before the block and was wondering how I could do that?
