While we at the Kamen rider Wiki don't mind it when someone else makes a Kamen Rider wiki, especially if it focuses on a specific series or is in another language, we do not condone outright plagiarism. We have no affiliation with these wikis despite being listed as such in some and some of our hard work was taken without permission.
I know already that it is part of Wikia to live and let live and the copyright terms for creative license, but this is ridiculous.
We do not plan on merging them, since most of the data was taken from us.
Is there anything we can do?
That's Special:Contact too. Just let us know what ones you want. There's no specific number that's allowed, but please keep it sensible. It's better to choose a few key URLs than to try and block every one you can think of. After all, people only need to vary it slightly to get a new URL, you can't prevent other Kamen Riders wikias this way
Well, you know how to get 100% on your wiki's tasks you have to get certain amount of likes on Facebook or something? I thought that since you guys support Facebook, Twitter and some other things you would be able to actually link your wiki to the twitter, like you do with facebook.. Does that help?
I've been trying to figure out how to message the Wikia Staff on enabling .SWF uploads to our wiki, Bully Fanon Wiki, for a project the community is doing.
We are creating a yearbook of fan-created projects, and I am bureaucrat/re-founder there, and also the only one who knows how to use flash, so I was making an SWF file to make the actual yearbook. Of course, we'll need the option of uploading SWF files on there available.
It is a very low-traffic wiki, so malicious uploads are unlikely.
I decided to come to you instead of going to the thread again. I'll 1st start off by saying i thought it was ok to say the N word because in previous wikis i've been in they allow you to use certain curse words. I just thought the same applied here. but the saying i mentioned are what people go by where i'm from. people dont waste time hiding behind a computer.
2. here's the link to the wiki I was banned from and my logs.http://degrassi.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/TheChickenLawyer I suggest you talk to both amins (Loveyea & DegrassiFan) about it. because I was mad about the comments i made on that wiki not matching the ban. I have several people look at it and they wonder the same thing like me. while your looking at the log.. go through comments starting with June 20th till the day I got banned & make sure to read the reasons I got banned for first that way you can see what I mean.
& honestly... is calling a character a "hot mess" or comparing their actions to a drunk person considered disturbing? & I think the amin got a comment mixed up. in 1 of those comments youll find that i SPACIFICALLY said "I wanted the storyline to die out. but I think the admin thought i said something different. & "harassment" like WTH man?! it is not against the rules to look at wiki activity everynight for 6 months no matter how much they hate it.
lastly... thanks for willing to help me. the admins are like people when they see a JW at their door.. they completely ignore them. I dont curse or say mean things to users... i dont even know anyone. I just leave my comments an thats it.. i only check replies when i go through the activity everyday at midnight.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I've been travelling.
First of all, you need to go back and read exactly what I said in my comment. I did not say I was going to help you or investigate your ban. I said that I had looked at your case already and that I see the ban as valid and the reasons for it understandable.
I offered to say more about why, either publicallly or privately. Privately may be better, but I can continue here if you prefer.
Valid? how is that? could it possible to show me examples in the comments from my log? dont think of it as help but maybe showing me something i dont see. cus last time I checked.. calling a character a hot mess aint harassment. can you point out where the harassment is because i looked many times and i dont see it.
you can continue here. but i emailed the staff amd if a member says i cant get banned for looking at the recent activity then ill tell the admin they cant do it. yes people can ban for what they see fit but what they see fit has to be in compliance with the TOS. if its not in the TOS or page rules then it breaks nothing. people cant get banned for minding their own business.. for ex: an admin cant ban someone because they dont like the color of a users hat. me viewing the recent activity is like a guy
sitting on a park bentch reading time magazine and for no reason the police beet him senceless with a knight stick. ive never heard of someone reviewing the recent activity. it breaks no TOS or page rules. and i even talked to a staff member and my LAWYER! they both said you cant get banned for it and the best thing for the admin & users to do is to either not use the site or to ignore it. so if the staff says i cant get banned for it then the offence gets taken off my long ban.
Before talking about your ban in particular, I want to start by going over the policy on bans in general.
I got the email you sent to us, but I won't answer it so that we can keep our conversation in one place. I am talking as staff here, if you had conversations with other staff, I'm happy to look and clarify them
But as far as I can see, you asked Josephyr about viewing recent activity, not a staff member. Josephyr is VSTF and an admin on this wikia, not Wikia staff.
As he said, there is no Wikia rule against viewing recent activity. That doesn't mean an admin can't ban you for it. As you've been told a few times now, admins can ban for any reason that does not break ToU or other Wikia rules - even if that reason is silly (yes, they can ban you for the color of your hat).
When I say "does not break the ToU", that does not mean "it must be something that is included as a rule in the ToU". It means that it doesn't contradict the Terms.
For example, if the ToU says you must wear a red hat, an admin cannot ban you for wearing one. But if the ToU doesn't mention hats, then any rule they decide on will not contradict the ToU and is allowed.
You mentioned race elsewhere, we do not allow bans based on race, sexual orientation, gender, religion etc.
So. At this point, are you clear on what admins can and can't ban for? Do you understand Wikia's policy on admins' ban choices?
well thats just a load of sh!t. admins got more power than staff. if we had presidents and military that acted like the admins we'd be at war and dead before the year 2030. i havent seen anyone this crazy since George Bush. (not that i wouldnt feel bad for this) but i wouldnt mind if some psyco made the wikia fall. so in other words.. if a guy just comes on the wiki, a new guy and says "hello" they cna get banned? well damn...
but all the admin i'm talking to needs is "if he sees someone tell him you cant get banned for looking at wikia activity" he will clesson the ban. he will know not to ban for something crazy like that. he will just change his mind. he told me.
oh i'm clear... I knew the rules for every wiki when I came last year. Other than the wikia i go to im fairly new to the site in general, but i know the rules better than anyone, as a fellow geek I dont break them. so hopefully now we can go on to discuss my ban. since no one else will. & I was wondering... how much is Wikia worth? its sad that admins have pretty much immunity. i'm suprised people arnt scared. there's 4 admins on the wikia i got banned from. the main admin
didnt care that i viewed the activity. she said i wouldnt get banned for it. but there's no way of contacting her (unless someone else did it). but their version of "harassment" is "you say something i dont like". for ex: "their still responsible for their own actions". lets just say if you knew what the character did you would see why I said what i said in some comments.
If a character you watched on tv forced 12 girls (her cheer squad) to take "over 1000 chest pics", while in school, then blaming everything on a friend (by taking a pic of them in the lockeroroom & threatening to send it to everyone (over 1000 people), then blamed her friend again with a fraud site.. youd see why i called the character a hot mess.
There are limits on Admin power. They answer to other admins on the wikia, to staff in some situations, and most importantly, to the community. A community that is unhappy with how an admin is dealing with problems are able to ask staff to remove their rights (after a community discussion where there is general agreement on what to do).
But on to the other part of this, your specific ban.
You've chosen to have this conversation publicly, so please be aware that I'm going to be blunt here.
You have said that you were banned for looking at recent changes, and for calling a character "a hot mess", and possibly other similar things. But all of those miss the point.
You were actually banned because others on the wikia, including the admin, found various things you said disturbing.
The part of the ban reason that says "Intimidating behavior/harassment" is a standard choice when blocking. I probably would have chosen the blank option for that part of the reason, but it seems fair to say that the admin found your behavior intimidating, so it fits (read it as intimidating behavior or harassment)
The rest gives the full reason: "initiating disturbing comments, making repetitive offences, I'm done with this". Which I understand to mean "making disturbing comments, a repeat offense (i.e. before your previous block too)".
So for example: part of what the admin found disturbing was that you were focused so much on the wikia that you looked at Wiki Activity every day for six months while you were banned. They are not saying that it's a bannable thing to look at Wiki Activity, they are saying that it makes them uncomfortable to hear that you were doing so obsessively every day during a very long ban. It seems that that made them feel as though someone was stalking them, or peering in through the window while excluded by the ban.
And note that I said part. There were other things you said that made them uncomfortable, and it was the accumulation of things that they found disturbing that lead them to decide that it would be better for the wikia if you were not part of it. And that's why you were banned.
well i learned 1 thing= do it but dont tell anyone. i forgot to do that. but i will spend my year traning. yes i am past angry with them but i will take my anger out the good way. other than the whole looking at the activity part, look through my long with the comments that have "Zoe Rivas" in the name. see whats all that about. also no need to tell me to see ur message. i was in a meeting so thats why i'm replying now. the meeting was fun. anways... i do like watching them talk about me on the site.
i just wont tell em what i do next time. after all i keep many secrets. i dont vven tell my parents of my gf what i do everyday. my house has a special security system that has a "invisible grid" stopping even bugs from coming through. anything that goes through it burns.
i looked through the activity cus i liked seeing what people talked about for the show and i liked getting character pics. if having over 100 pics of certain characters (only the girls) is wrong i never wanna be right. thanks for talking to me. women dont really "talk to me". online or in real life. so.. what would happen if i (or anyone) made a song or a series of songs about the admins and users without mentioning their names? would anything happen to me here? cus when i get upset I make
songs. for some reason they made fun of me on my day back when i told them what i did when i was upset. whats wrong with taking anger therapy? yes after my 1st ban i got mad, firebommed my 1st xgf's car and went to an anger group. when i'm nice i'm calm but when i'm angry its like the hulk. last time i was this angry i "broke" flint. lets just say i'm the reason why Flint Michigan is poor and mostly made of trailor parks. the only way for me to get calm is to make music of to eat
Hi, on a wiki I am a part of, if you move the cursor over my username while I am in chat, it says I joined in January 1970. Obviously, this site was not around then, and I am not 46 years old haha. I was just wondering if this could be fixed. I tried refreshing, then waiting to see if it would go away, but it won't. Thanks.
Hi, that's an odd one. Your user record shows the date to be this year, so I don't know where the system is getting 1970!
You could report the bug via Special:Contact, but I'm not sure it will be one that's fixed quickly (or even at all). We have to prioritize and this one isn't stopping anyone doing something or causing other major problems. You are welcome to send it in though
As a quick bit of background, January 1970, specifically January 1st, is the UNIX epoch. What you're seeing is likely a fallback/default value (of zero) that's been used when the correct date could not be found.
Hi ms. Sannse. I would like to report this site: http://survivor-org.wikia.com as for the past several years it has violated Wikia terms and conditions, mainly, soliciting personal information from users, some of which are minors.
Hi, I didn't delete your wiki, I deleted a blog post on this wikia. Partly because it wasn't a real blog post, just a detached sentence, and partly because of the bad language, which we don't allow on this wikia.
A wikia is a whole site, all the pages that exist under the same base URL, which will be something like wikia-name.wikia.com
If you see community.wikia.com at the start of the URL, you are on Community Central, the wikia for learning and sharing about Wikia as a whole.
