I opened a thread a few days ago, and you can see how the sock accounts actually behave. Here I describe their behavior more specifically.
Adding long strings of Cyrillic letters, gibberish, and emojis into pages, comments, threads, and edit summaries.
Sometimes removing a large chunk of content.
I need the Abuse Filter to enforce our wiki rules more efficiently, such as prevent users from creating very short pages (only contains 1-2 sentence; this filter also exists in Wikipedia). I also want to port a few filters from Wikipedia.
I hope these pieces of information helps. Your help will be appreciated.
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.
