I don't mean to pester, as I'm sure you're quite busy, however I posted this adoption request about a month ago. You placed it on hold and told me all I needed to do was to notify the members of the wiki that I was attempting to adopt it and let them discuss it. I did so promptly, they discussed it and finished, yet I've heard nothing back since. However, I noticed other requests are getting approved relatively quickly.
I'm sorry if I sound impatient, it is not my intention, but I am curious as to if On-Hold requests are put on hold for a certain time? Or if my request was merely forgotten about by accident?
I was trying to enable the collapsing element for table in The Breaker Wiki but something is wrong. I have found various references on the codes that need to be added on Common.js and .css in the wiki and I added them but they don't work.
Days later, he posted this idea. Again, its not fanfiction, yet a project for a gallery on the Mall of America.
Good to know Fishbird is moving into another territory. Sadly I just can't congratulate him bc I was just blocked from the IW (for 1 year, should be 6 months or so), so I'll go ahead and congratulate him in Community Central.
It was good while it lasted. Posted my ideas there in the IW.
You said that the spotlight for HIMYM Wiki would be up in the middle of May. I have been refreshing the pages just to see if it was put up, but I didn't see it there. Maybe I missed it, but could you check for me if it was in fact put up.
Hi Merrystar. I was wondering, could you spotlight the GTA Wiki (if it already hasn't been). I noticed you talking about it on the GTA Myths Wiki, so I thought it would be good if the GTA Wiki was too. Thanks.
Constructedlanguage, consider this a warning. Your edits to that user's profile have been reverted once more. Regardless of what they may/may not have done, you are committing vandalism yourself by doing so.
If you have not done so already, please report global vandalism to the VSTF.
So can you delete user:Doreply page which is nothing but vandal-mongering? At least can you restore my last edit there, simply by reverting Eladkse, so wandal-mongering will be eliminated once and for all, of course with revert tool, using relevant explanation, and not by rollback?
I was fully justified in reverting your edits, Constructedlanguage. Regardless of any vandalism the user may have done, you still had no right to edit their own profile. Per Merrystar, if you have an issue with a user profile, please speak to an admin or Staff member. Taking it upon yourself just causes more problems.
It's nothing to do with us having a 'right' to remove problematic content. User profiles are personal things, and we don't like editing them unless there is a substantial reason to do so.
We can't allow any old user to edit or blank a user profile at will. Just think of all the issues it would cause - especially if the owner of the profile were then to complain. Blanking of content pages is considered vandalism, and the same is true of user profiles.
In this particular case, the user DoReply has not committed any vandalism on Central. So, the blanking of their profile by you due to an issue on another wiki doesn't really cast you in a good light to the passing admin.
To make it clear, I'm trying to get at you or anything. It's all water under the bridge at the end of the day. So long as you acknowledge that admins or Staff need to be told of issues with user profiles so that they can look at them, then that's fine.
Just as a question, Eladkse: would admins of a local wiki be acting out of line if they were to blank/modify a problematic user profile on their own wiki, or would that be considered a different scenario to this one?
That would certainly not be out of line - local policy applies on other wikis. What I have described above is how we prefer it on Central. Other wikis may differ, but at a guess I would say most wikis follow a similar policy.
