Hi, i need advice about adopting a wiki. I noticed one of your terms for adopting a wiki is that i'm not blocked on any other wikia. Now i contacted wikia a few weeks ago because the admin on the pripara wiki had blocked me over a personal reason, rather than violating any of the wikia rules. The admin has agreed that the only reason she has blocked me was because she was angry over something i said on a fandom wikia, about wishing the series would end soon so the drama she was creating would also end. Even though she has said that, im still blocked and the advise i've got from wikia was to wait the block out but im blocked for a year. So is there anything that can be done.
Being blocked for something personal isn't typically going to affect an adoption. What Staff look for when they review blocks in an adoption is if the user was vandalizing/spamming a wiki or else getting into heated disputes with other users. Basically "is this user fit to be an admin?"
If you're only blocked because you said "I wish the series would end" that is not going to be held against you in an adoption. If you have have any doubts on something, you're always welcome to inquire from Merrystar as she currently handles all of the adoptions.
It's been quite some time since I have edited my User:Adriano 25/global.js page. However, the coding I added is not being called and I don't have access to any of the shortcuts. I usually edit the DragonVale Wiki and the shortcut cannot be used. I have also tried to bypass my browser's cache many times but it doesn't work.
Would you know why the code isn't working? Would really appreciate if you could help me with it. Thanks!
From what I know, #NewWindowLink is deprecated, and won't open anything in a new tab anymore (and I tested it here, it's opening in the same tab), and #NewWindowLink gives the link an icon like it would be opened in a new tab, which might be misleading for users.
We didn't remove the feature entirely - only the function that caused it to open links in a new tab.
It's useful for Shared Help because it gets around how that code reinterprets interwiki links (it often turns interwikis into local links when viewing help pages on other communities). It's not ideal, and we'd like to change that - but for the moment, it works.
(We also didn't remove it entirely because we don't want to break all the existing links using it, of course.)
It says in the TOU that all users are responsible for what happens to their account, so whether a user is "good or not" doesn't matter: if they don't bother to take good security of their account, then they'll get global blocked when someone maliciously uses the account.
As Alia Prior said, Staff do not discuss global blocks with users, other than the target user. Digifiend can contact Wikia at Special:Contact to discuss the block.
Hi. I want to ask why has Sign in been switched between and back to Sign in or Register? It does not let users login in. I did click on Sign in or Register and it wants me to Register. I tried to only click on Sign in and then the whole Sign in or Register goes to ask me if I want to register.
I had to clean my history many times before it said only Sign in and the tablet appeared. I went to other wikis and it was the same. Why is Sign in or Register one button?
I have now learned how it works now. Sometimes, Wikia Council makes their edits which changes Wikis for a better or much more worse. But that's how things are in life. You have to take the good with the bad.
