A user named Joey Nigro 2016 on the Timmy_Failure_Wiki commited repeated acts of vandalisim, posting fanfiction content. When I asked him to stop, he created a page saying that he had 'moved' the wiki, despite not being an admin. Upon further investigation, I discovered that this was not the first time he had done something like this. When I visited his knockoff, I discovered that he was trying to create something called the "Timmy Failure Show" which is a violent AU where the main characters are murderes who die a lot. When I confronted him on the real Timmy Failure Wiki, he was rude and dismissive, deleted my threads/replies, and behaved like a spambot. You can view his talk page for further reference. He also visited the Villians Wiki and attempted to create character pages for the protagonists of the Timmy Failure Book Series as the antagonists of the aforementioned "Timmy Failure Show". I contacted the villians wiki admins, and they blocked him and deleted his work. Please delete his copycat wiki.
Hello. This type of request needs to be sent through Special:Contact. I'm not quite sure if you wish the wiki to be removed because it is an attack wiki or because it has copied content; in either case, please include links to help us assess the situation.
First, you don't post adoption requests on Merrystar's wall, there's Adoption:Requests where you can request it and she'll review it in a week.
Second, I think there's isn't a trend anymore to include more than 1 request on one adoption page, so I moved your adoption to Adoption:RuPaul's Drag Race Wiki (2).
Hi Grimlock. You will need to create a general blog for everybody on the wiki to see, where you say that you are adopting the wiki. And it would be good to leave a second message for Raziel that also says that you have asked for rights through adoption -- the one you left previously just asks him to give you rights, which he can't do.
Hello Miles. If the problem user on the English wiki has returned, then I would advise you to create an adoption request here for it, so you get admin and bureaucrat rights. That will allow you to deal with him and any socks he might continue to make directly.
Sadly I am not eligable for adoption, because said trolls have blocked me on their wiki pages.
If I could be made into an admin on said page that would be greatly appreciated, however I doubt I'll be able to go through official channels.
If you check the audit log, you'll see the user continuing to put back in references to "Metro Active X" as the previous troll user did. The two additional wiki's "ja" and "ru" respectively, make the same claims the original wiki made before we took over, that the project is not ours and is a bad copy if theirs (a lie, which we can prove)
Additional assistance would be appreciated.
If you'd rather continue by email, please let me know. Community management themselves just have me going round in circles, I'm on the verge of just submitting a DMCA and having the whole lot taken down.
A single block on another wiki where you have not vandalized or otherwise behaved in a way inappropriate for an admin does not make you ineligible for adoption. I handle nearly all adoption requests and I would not be telling you to create one if you were not eligible. Although you will have to actually edit the wiki yourself while you wait for a response to stay eligible...
Creating a page labeled and titled for spin-offs/fan versions of a game, which is what this user is doing, is adding content. Whether it is content that the rest of the community (if there is one) wants to have is open for debate, but adding it is not vandalism. Replacing all content on the wiki with information on a different game/fan version/whatever, which is what happened previously, is vandalism.
Ok. Well just keep editing (and not merely edit-warring), and try not to be drawn into arguments, because the important thing with a troll is not to respond.
In terms of the anti-vandal groups, they would see the same difference I mentioned above between replacing all content with a different game, which is clearly vandalism, and adding that information as a mod or spin-off of the original game, which is a question of content inclusion. The best thing you can do in this case is to start a community discussion about whether mod/spin-off information is going to be allowed and get other community members (besides the two of you) to participate. Remember to keep your language as calm as possible, and not to get drawn into personal arguments with the troll.
Thanks for your information Merrystar, I am continuing to make edits and generally clean up the Wiki.
Quite hard to do when you have someone following you about reverting edits and generally being a nuisance. Combined with threats of violence now being made against myself.
Said user has proven themselves to be a compulsive lier with no intent but to peddle their false information. Said user has also previously been banned from Wikia under a different name for similar behaviour, however the administrative team don't seem to be able to find a link. (Despite the M.O, writing style and behaviours being exactly the same)
Hello. Redstone is correct -- you haven't edited in nearly a week at this point. If you are still interested in adopting the wiki, please start editing again and let me know on my wall.
Hi Wendy, I'm still very much interested in adopting the Prisoner wiki (http://prisoner.wikia.com/). I've been taking charge over at the 007 wiki for the past few weeks coordinating edits on a number of prominent articles, hence my inactivity on the Prisoner wiki for a week or so. With that out of the way, I intend to give the Prisoner wiki the attention it sorely needs.
