Hi Lostris, I see you are helping deal with the current spammers right now. It might be good idea to see which are hitting the temporary filter I made here so you can phalanx them too, then maybe add the keywords to the phalanx mechanism. Just a heads up.
Hello, I am the administrator and founder of the small "TARP wiki" and one of my favorite things to do when I have spare time at my school is to work on my wikia, but today I noticed that the IP address of my school had been involved in a wikia-wide block, so that even when signed in I cannot make any changes.
It said that the block was preformed by this user, so when I got home I decided to bring it up with you. Now I do not know if any exceptions can be made to this block, such as allowing signed in users to edit the wikia, or exempting the wikia itself from the block (we do not receive any vandalism because we are so small so this would not cause any issues) but if you could I would like you to please make the necessary changes
After talking it over with the rest of VSTF and Staff, we have come to the conclusion to lift the IP block since your edits have indeed been good and we'd like to give you the change to continue working on your wiki. It is never our intention to block good users from editing. However, I hope that you will understand that if this IP is involved again in more advertisement spam, we will be forced to reinstate the ban, which will apparently also affect you. I hope this will not occur in the future, but if it does, I already apologize for the inconvenience.
Thank you very much, I do hope that nobody else at the IP address will abuse editing privileges, and if it does happen again I am glad to at least have a better understanding of the circumstances and will be content working only at home.
Once again thank you very much
I wanted to tell you this a while back actually. Congrats! in the short time I've known you I've been able to see that you are always willing to help anyone and you are always around helping to undo vandalism on a lot of wikis. I think you will do a great job as a VSTF!
I don't think so. It's just quite a common way to build up a profile template -or at least from what I've seen :-) Though even if he did, it would be okay (if he would adapt the information for obvious reasons). From personal experience, I know that many people who are not good wit coding tend to "borrow" the codes from templates that they've seen somewhere and adapt it to fit their own needs. I've done so many a times before and have known people who've done the same to me. In the end, I chalk that up to "Wikians helping each other out". But I thank you for the question and the concern :-)
He couldn't have blocked you for that. He claims copyright on something he doesn't have it in the first place. Even if he would've contacted Wikia, there is nothing that they would've done. He is right that it is the nice thing to do to ask for permission before using someone else's coding, but even if you wouldn't, there is nothing that really can be done about it. Besides, not all similarities are the result of "stealing" code. As you yourself pointed out, my and his profile look similar, but I've never seen him around and I doubt that he has copied me. It's just a common profile look. I wouldn't even know whom to credit if I wanted to.
As for your question whether or not he has a problem with you, only he can answer that.
Per what JosophHawk said. There isn't really something that you can do to speed up the process. Personally, I'd advice you to just wait. They'll get to your request and you will definitely hear back from them at due time. However, if you start "stalking" them, I'd reckon that to have an adverse effect on your chances to get accepted. Either way, good luck :-)
Hello, I was an old user on Avatar Wiki back in 2011 called ShadowEden96. Back then I was immature and stupid and as a result I tried to troll Thialog by making an alternate account to bother him...this obviously led me to get blocked. Then i tried getting around the block by making many alternate accounts (mostly to finish my fanon, but also to complain...stupid mistake, I know >.<), with this one being the one I made last, and subsequently got blocked infinitely.
Ironically I can say I became the mask as when I left Avatar Wiki I stumbled onto another called Camp Half Blood Roleplay Wiki, and over time I matured and became an actual good user. I was even an admin at one point before life forced me to retire. In any case, thanks to Korra I've recently been coming back to the Avatar Wiki to check up on news on the new episodes and seasons. I've also been reading some fanon, and it's made my inner Avatar fanon writer sense itch to no end. I was wondering if I could be unblocked, or where on Avatar Wiki I could go to argue my case to be unbanned.
Since I am not familiar with your "case" -as it predates my active time on the wiki- I would suggest taking this up with Thailog, seeing how he was the administrator that blocked you in the first place.
Not that I know of. Depending on your block specifics, you can address your case on your own talk page underneath the block message, though if you can't do that, I'd just approach him here on community central.
hi you may not know me and this may be a totaly random subject. but i blocked inifinetly from the Awoken heros wiki when i didn't even do anything at all. i saw you on there before and i thought i talk to you about it
I do not edit that wiki, I just passed there to undo vandalism. However, I did look at you edits there and it appears that you have severely vandalised that wiki's pages as well and were blocked by its founder as a result.
In general, wiki contributors -especially not the founders of said wiki- are not amused when other users randomly blank out entire pages and/or insert nonsense into the pages. However, since I am not part of that community, this is an issue best taken up with the founder and user who blocked you.
yeah. i've tried that too. he just ignores them cause he knows my bad side which is not present most of the time. i'm actualy a good guy here. oh i wish i hadn't done that after all. i didn't think he would get this upset at me over a little thing like this
Vandalism, while it isn't a big thing due to it being easily undone, is in general just a sign of disrespect toward the hard work of the contributors to that wiki. As such, it is not surprising that some editors might get angry about that and on every wiki, vandalism is a ground to be blocked. If you can't strike up a conversation with the person who blocked you, I think it is best you let the situation be what it is and move on.
I don't know him. As said, I am not part of that community, I just passed through to undo vandalism of another user. However, even though he might ignore your messages, you can tell him so yourself on his wall. It always means more coming from the person who wronged you than from someone else.
No, not really. For whatever reason, you just vandalized and whatever "damage" you did can be undone with two clicks for me and one click by VSTF members, so it really isn't a big deal to clean up. It's just without purpose to vandalize in the first place, but that obviously hasn't been my decision.
VegaDark is a VSTF member who responded on the vandalism report that I made at your expense. I've been around on Wikia for a few years now and if there is anything I have learned, it is that vandalism will never lead to anything as it is easy to revert and will only result in the vandal being blocked. Besides, getting back at someone on the internet serves little point. But that's also the beauty of the internet: if you don't like someone, just just click away and you don't have to deal with them. In my opinion, that option takes up a hell of a lot less time than vandalizing a wiki.
heh. your right. it was my big mistake. i shouldn't have went through with it in the first place. i forget some things sometimes. so please excuse my behavior like that. i could try and talk to him about it but it would just make things worse for me.
You have nothing to apologize to for me as it was not I who was targeted. I understand that you don't feel like making amends with someone if that makes things worse for you, but on the other hand, isn't that the entire point of an apology, that you go out of your way to make things right?
