Hello. Recently a friend of mine has been blocked across wikia, his username is "Caulynn". I wanted to ask if it would be possible to remove his block as he's a mod over at the Scarf Heroes Wiki and we'd like to keep him that way.
Hello and I was looking at a unit I just got in the game and while I was looking I saw a message on the bottom saying I was blocked by you for vandalism, I never have vandalised and am pretty sure that it must be a mistake. I have no idea why I got banned/ blocked from the server but I believe it was probably just a misunderstanding. Can you tell me why I got blocked so I would know not to do it again?
I greatly appreciate your willingness to assist in rolling back our wiki while it was being defaced. However, it appears at one point, according to the change log, you deleted an entire page. Since then, I have restored the page, but is there a particular reason, or was it a mistake?
Sorry for the late reply, this message seems to have slipped my radar. I never meant to delete any page that wasn't created as vandalism. If that happened, then it likely was my mistake to presume it was a spam page. I apologize for that.
Hello, I'm Hazel. I am a user of the SurvivalCraft Official Wiki. It is nice to meet you! :)
This message is concerning the recent event in which, according to one of the users, you blocked the entirety of the SurvivalCraft Official Wiki community for spam.
I am rather confused for the reason for this, as spam has been low in the past few weeks or so. Any spam that does appear is found as soon as possible, and immediately terminated by our main admins ChartreuseNarwhal and Stanimus.
One of the users sent a complaint to wikia staff regarding the block, and it is now reversed. Although, I would appreciate a valid reason for why this occurred, so it can be verified whether the block was fair or not.
I believe ChartreuseNarwhal would also like to speak to you about this, so you may also receive a message from her.
As far as I know, I have never been on the wiki that you linked. Could you please provide a more direct link to either the user I may or may not have wrongfully blocked or could you explain the specific instance (like when did it occur? What was it about? Perhaps a link if one is available. Do you also happen to have the block ID of the user in question?)? I'm more than happy to explain any of my actions, but in this case, I have no idea what you're referring to, sorry.
In this post, he explains how you blocked every member of the SC wikia for "spam".
I have not had the time to look into it myslef, as I am very busy with the wiki.
I was very upset to hear that someone could have targeted us for no reason. I am very devoted to the SC Wiki, and I and all of the other users care for it very well. We maintain a spam free, friendly environment.
I'm not saying that you did anyting, I would just like to know what is going on...
Rest assured that no one was targeting your wiki and the block was not made against that user, he just seems to have been an unfortunate side effect, sort of speak. After perusing your wikis phalanx triggers, I discovered that Plant Champion uses the same IP as someone who was blocked on Community Central for spam. As such, Plant Champion cannot edit via that IP either, even though he was not the one triggering the block.
That said, I want to emphasise that Plant Champion -or anyone else on your wiki for that matter- was not targeted. It was just an unfortunate side effect of the global IP block caused by spammer.
Since it is now apparent that a good user is prevented from editing, I will remove the IP block, which should resolve all of Plant Champion's issues. However, if that IP would ever be used again to spam, it will likely be blocked again.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but I'm glad this could be resolved.
It's all good. I can see where the confusion comes from, so don't worry about it. When in doubt, just ask. Generally, things will work themselves out that way. Glad it was a relatively easy fix. Good luck with your wiki!
Vandalism 1: 188.8.131.52 Three times modified another user's user page (which is strictly forbidden in the Asphalt Wiki Code of Conduct) and once the Asphalt Wiki Code of Conduct was replaced with spam. Also refuses to follow the guidelines of language selection outlined in the Asphalt Wiki Code of Conduct quite frequently.
Vandalism 2: 184.108.40.206 Once modified another user's user page and once the Asphalt Wiki Code of Conduct was replaced with spam. Additionally a page (titled "Admins") was created with some dubious content. Might be a sock puppet for 220.127.116.11 (as both of them consider themselves to be self-proclaimed kings), but in any case this anonymous (Mexican?) user also refuses to follow the guidelines of language selection outlined in the Asphalt Wiki Code of Conduct.
Spammer: 18.104.22.168 Replaced a content of a page with spam.
There aren't any active admins in Asphalt Wiki, so if you could (again) look to Asphalt Wiki and impose some sanctions, that would be highly appreciated, as it seems that some of those IP:s are indeed used again.
