  • Is there a trick to editing our bios? Everything is edit protected, and I can't even leave a Wall Message.

  • Hello JoePlay, I'm an administrator for Transformers: Prime Wiki, I'm not sure if you remember this or not, but in case you don't, you helped us with colored admin, chat mod, and helper names. Well, after two years, it needs some updating. I Don't think it's fair for people who become admins to have to have green or yellow colors, I think they should pick whatever color they prefer. And I don't think chat mods should have colored names. And I don't want just a colored profile tab, I want message wall, blogs, and contributions tabs to be colored as well, the color the admin chooses. Look, I'm sorry about the trouble, really, but, if admins and regular users on forums, if you click a name in the forums, it goes to the user's message wall, and I want the other tabs colored so people will recognize admins on forums. You understand? Well, and special helpers having colored names, I don't like that idea either. I think only admins should have colored names. I'm sorry about the trouble, but it just needs updating. Oh and inactive admins having red colored names, if they're not active anymore than they shouldn't be colored. Sorry about the trouble, but do you think you can do that?

  • Hi Joe

    I was wondering if you could help me? I am an Administrator for EastEnders Wiki and I noticed you made the Wiki header.

    http://eastenders.wikia.com/wiki/File:WikiHeader2.png

    I was wondering if I could ask how you made it translucent/transparent/faded? as I would like to update it. 

    Thanks

  • On Wikia Starter Pages, why do you delete stuff like Template:Speedydelete? It makes future wikias lack info.

    Just curious. Why delete almost every page there?

    • Hi, Nerfmaster8. :)

      Taking a quick look, I see that the wiki does meet the best practices criteria. I'm currently helping Disney Channel Wiki, but I'm almost done there. Tomorrow I will add Ice Age Wiki to the approved list and contact you there to get started and ask for any additional info/details I'll need.

  • Hi Joe! We've talked briefly on the Peter Pan Wiki; um, just wondering, how long does it usually take for Wikia to be updated with changes? When I searched for Peter Pan, the introduction text has been updated, but the image is still not showing, so I'm curious if this is normal.

    Also, I know it's a slightly different case from the Peter Pan Wiki, but is it possible for you to help make some changes on the Alice in Wonderland Wiki? I have written to three of the most recently logged-in admins, and with one of the replies I got the implication that the only reason they aren't making the changes I suggested themselves, was to keep the wiki open for adoption, for if any of them made the adjustment, people will have to wait another 60 days to be able to file the request. The founder even went to take down his bureaucrat and sysop rights. The whole conversation can be seen here (the proposal of adjustments) : Thread:841127. But like I said, even when I'm given the blessing to adopt the wiki, I don't think it's right for someone to adopt it without a true passion for it, so I'm hoping that since the founder, although now no longer having any rights, seems fine with the changes, can the staff do it? I also tried to start with the simple thing like replacing the wordmark, however, the wiki would not let me update the file; File:Wiki-wordmark.png this page is unlock but it says <Use Theme Designer to upload wordmark or wiki background> when I tried to update it, seems like regular users can't replace the file after all. I've updated the version on another image on the same wiki File:Alice in Wonderland Wiki.png. Hope it can be done! Thanks!

    • Can nothing be done short of adopting to gain user right?

      To delete images (or pages), you need the admin user right, and the only way to get that at a community with inactive admins is by submitting an adoption request.

      Does this qualify for requesting a VSTF?

      On the Policies page at VSTF Wiki, you can read the "When to take action on a wiki" section. I believe this situation may qualify as "a problem with vandals and no local administrators are available, or active, to block them".

      To report the situation, use the button at the top of the Report:Spam page.

    • Hi Joe! Again thanks for the reply! I did in fact read the VSTF policies beforehand, but I was a bit confused as files or specifically images were not mentioned and Help:Spam also didn't talk about images, so I wasn't sure if VSTF do have the power to remove the duplicates or not and wanted a staff opinion on it. I will send in a request to do them! Thank you for the breakdown!

  • Block HamClub13 For the following reasons 1. Advertised for something that's not Nintendo on Fantendo 2. Tried to make the Fantendo Wiki Shut Down 3. Sweated to skypawpatrol when she does not like swearing 4. Bullied the user DoodleFox

  • There are two links to Avengers Alliance Wiki on Template:FacebookGameWikis. Can you remove one of them please?

    Also, it might be a good idea to sort through the links and filter the wikis so that those belonging to discontinued games are split off.

  • Hi! I'm a bureaucrat on the Star vs. the Forces of Evil Wiki. A fellow wiki member told me about the Image Control feature, and I was wondering if you could add it to the wiki I'm from. Thank you! :)
