I'm the current admin of the MAP GAME WIKI and I've cone to see that a few users have been given bureaucrat status, I was wondering if by any chance you can demote them? Or If you could explain me how can I do it? I'm to establish a democratic based government in the wiki as it grows so I'd like to have it under my control and not have anyone undo the results or change stuff as they see fit (at least not if it goes against user elected choices) do you think you can help me out in that?
A Month ago, randomly, a member named DistrubedFan1100 sent me a message like this:
◾Abuse, harass, threaten or intimidate other Wikia users;
This is your only warning and I do not require any replies from you to this thread for that would be breaking that exact same rule as I just bolded for everyone.
I never did anything to anger him, nor do I remember, but he sent me this message and I was quite offended. So later on, he replied to one of my comments, so I asked him kindly not to reply (if he didn't want to speak to me) then he sent the Wiki Admin MrOwnerandPwner a message to block me for 'harassment'. However, I was not harassing DisturbedFan as I was only kindly asking not to reply to me if he doesn't want contact with me. So the Admin goes out of his way to block me for replying. Then, I notice that DisturbedFan starts talking about me as an abomination because I am autistic and he mentioned about a 'variable'. Please look into this and speak to DisturbedFan1100. I don't want people like this trying to block me for no valid reason.
As for his behavior... have you discussed it with the admins at the wiki? You can contact them on their wall on this wiki. Stay calm, and explain why you think his behavior is unacceptable.
They don't listen. One of the 3 admins just blocked me, and the other two wouldn't let me speak to them about it.
You can look for another wiki on a similar topic and spend your time here. There are multiple alt history/alt future wikis around.

A Meat Puppet, by Wikipedia´s defintion, is a new user invited to any type of discussion soley to influence it. But in this case, Tupka I think the tip Happydance9 provided with "I suggest going to the Wiki provided and speaking to them" wasn´t for you, it was to Staff.
Is it possible to rename a namespace? I am admin (the only one active at least) for the Brightwood Adventures Wiki, and noticed the Portal is attached to Kiwipedia Wiki:Portal. I know this wiki combined with another wiki (the kiwipedia one), but I've only just noticed this now. No one before me has ever wanted to use the Comm Portal. I'm not them. I would like very much to use it. Does it even matter that it's called Kiwipedia Wiki, or would it be better for uniformity's sake to change it to what the main page would be called? Right now, I have Home as the main page, but that is only temporarily while I am working on revamping the old main page. After I get all that done, I was going to rename the main page from Home to Brightwood Adventures Wiki, or something like that. I could also use some advice on that matter, if you have the time, anytime. I'm disabled so please feel no rush. I'm around 24/7 mostly and will almost always respond immediately if you leave me a message. Also, as an option if we're both on here at the same time when you're ready to delve into this, we could go to the chat room on the BA wiki.
Thanks so much for your time! And, I hope you're doing well!
Thank you for deleting "Help:Installing Japanese character sets" page,
and I'm sorry for the mishap.
Tupka217 told me the reason why I shouldn't add it.
I understand it now, and I'm sorry to trouble you about deletion. (I added it because of w:c:templates:Template:Nihongo, but now I know Community Central don't have this template, too.)
I appreciate reading my message written in poor English.
I was on the GTA Wiki, I did something wrong that I edit warred with RainingPain17. I got a warning from Ilan xd. Ilan xd said something about that I was edit warring with RainingPain for the longest, So I edited the things that were wrong. Ilan xd BLOCKED me because continually edit warring with RainingPain17 even after being not told to. First of all, LS11sVaultBoy blocked and caught me for the first time for removing content from pages: and inserting false info, then for the second time, he re-blocked me for removing nonsense, gibberish, useless or false from games despite warnings, edit warring and admitting to points gaming, then for the third time, he re-blocked me again for trying intimidate an admin and thinking that I make all the rules and that everyone has to do what I say, and then Ilan xd blocked me from the GTA Wiki for continuous edit warring permanently for an infinite amount of time after I was blocked four times. Not meaning to, and not knowing. I did it, I did again. Then days later, I tried editing my profile and I found out I got BLOCKED. I was pissed off and very dissapointed. The block was Inffint, no matter how can I ask Ilan xd to unblock me that I did nothing anything wrong, because I'm sick of it. I can't ask Ilan xd because I was blocked and he still kept me blocked on the GTA wiki, but I didn't do anything wrong and I'm really getting sick and tired of this. I will NOT have it. ):
Wikia Staff, even though they have the power to unblock you don´t usually get involved with local blocks such as this as they can be solved on a local level. If you have already contacted the blocking admin multiple times and the answer remains the same perhaps it would be wise to move on and contribute to a new wiki. If you wish, you can still try one more time and maybe use some help, being kind and polite is one of the main keys.
If I read your story and your user talk on GTA, I'd say you'd have to take a long, good look at yourself. You acknowledge you edit warred, you did a couple of things multiple times after being expressly warned not to, and you badge edited. These are gonna get you blocked on pretty much every decently administrated wiki.
If you do find a new wiki, work hard not to make the same mistakes again. Wikis are a community effort, you've got to work in a group.
I know it, Staff doesn't unblock me. They leave that decision in the hands of the admin that blocked me. It is the bureaucrat. The bureaucrat who permanently blocked me from the GTA Wiki for continuous edit warring against towards with RaininPain17 for an infinite amount of time is Ilan xd. So I want to tell Kirkburn about this to help me with this to get me unblocked at the GTA Wiki.
Sannse's blog regarding how to get unblocked is more of a guideline and not a guarantee. You could ask the blocking admin on their message wall on Community Central to see if they will negotiate the block placed upon you.

For christ sake, What are we gonna do? Oh God I can't believe it, he wants me dead. He's gonna take me out of business. Not necessarily in that order. Not meaning to, and not knowing.

Feel free to talk to Kirkburn about your block, but I predict the same answer that was already presented here multiple times. Wikia Staff doesnt work on weekends so you will have to wait a little longer. Good Luck.
Oh God I can't believe this. Why am I to blame? It's not my fault. But you know the GTA Wiki, he's gonna get the vice squad on me. Oh my God, it's gonna be like those statutory rape charges. Have you ever been in prison on statutory rape charges, man? They come in at you at the showers! Oh God, and Smashbro8 and RainingPain17 got that another arresting guy Ilan xd on me and wants me dead! Oh my God! This is gonna be worse!
The above responses were generally correct - we try not to involve ourselves in local wikia disputes. However, if you do feel something needs elevating to Wikia Staff level, the best way to do this is to clearly summarize your issue (with specific links) in a message to Special:Contact. That means it will have the opportunity to be seen by any of the Community Support team, and we can look into it in more depth.
Oh God I can't believe it, he wants me dead. He's gonna take me out of business. Not necessarily in that order. Oh God. I feel the day the patrolling reinforcement goon. Oh I'm sweating to gay in jail. Have got a idea to get me unblocked by asking an admin on the GTA Wiki to unblock me or the other idea to get me unblocked on the GTA Wiki? What about... - No, no... See I got too many of those...
But Ilan xd BLOCKED me permanently for continuous edit warring against with RainingPain with an expiry time of infinite and they never gonna unblock me at the GTA Wiki and they're gonna kill me for this, because they are bored, sick and tired of me. So do I have ask an admin to unblock me at the GTA Wiki or wait unil Kirburn comes back to me within two business days?
