Hi,I'm Gigglekit and lately my friends and I have suffered bullying from other wikis.The Lab Rats Elite Force wiki banned me and all my friends with no proof or reason.They claimed I was a spammer who repeatedly makes new accounts even though this is my only account and yesterday was the first time I met anyone on the wiki.Friends from the BlogClan 2 Wiki are asking staff there why I was banned and all the admins there are blocking my friends immediately,resulting in the nickname “instaban".We need to talk to them but don't have a chance since we are all banned.As soon as you see this I want to know if anything can be done?I'd really appreciate it.This probably isn't the place to report this but I'm not sure where else to go.
Staff don't get involved in local blocks. And since you are blocked infinitely, you'll just have to move on from it. But your "friends" vandalized and removed content from pages, and you're saying that those users are bullying you? Look, I agree that they should at least get a checkuser to be sure you are a sock of another user or not, but they don't have to. You'll just have to move on from the wiki.
My point is my friends did nothing wrong till the admins started this nonsense.Only one removed content on pages and I warned her to use a blog instead but she is very stubborn.One,Stormy Sea,actually tried to use REASON!He also warned your wiki about Willowlight and her weirdness,so don't blame that on Me.My friends,SOME OF WHICH WHO NEVER EDITED AND ARTICLE,have been blocked because they went on chat and asked why I was banned.Isn't that harsh?Clearly it is,and Willow,being weird,now wants revenge.I'm not Willow so that's not my fault.I didn't even do anything.I was enjoying a game in chat like everyone else when I was accused of being “Lego"(what a dumb username),and banned that same second.Not fair,is it?
Yeah. Sorry about the vandalizing. But me being me and going insane is NOT Giggle's fault. Also, some of our friends who were trying to reason with the admins were instantly blocked, without even checking or asking. They said that every new user that say would be blocked. I don't want a random person to come on the wiki and get blocked. Only one of our friends have even managed to talk to them, but they were blocked soon after.
And we did not have a reason to be blocked.(well Wollow,you kind of did cuz of the vandalism,but whatever)I mean,no check.Just the statement “You remind me of Lego,get out" and an instant ban.Then all my friends,none of which edited pages,vandalized(again,sorry Willow),said anything rude,most didn't even get to say something on chat,have all been banned.One of the admins said anyone who posts today is working with us as a fake account and all of us deserve to be banned.Some are innocent,and we were banned infinitely,for again,no reason.I just wanted the opinion of a wiki staff member to see if there was anything I could do and if not I will abandon the idea,but I don't want to give up if I can do something.
Thanks so much Sannse, I appreciate the encouragement and the advice. In order to create a test Wiki do i create a page or click the button "Start a wikia" at the top of the page? Or better yet just point me in the direction I need to go to find out.
As an admin, you already have the ability to edit those pages. They're not locked to you that you need to contact Staff about them. You should be able to edit them on your own already. Have you tried??
I was reading your profile and I was interested in your template so I pressed edit to see if I can use it on another wiki, I tried to copy it but I pressed paste instead and a random list got exposed. Forgive me
Hello, I just noticed that I was blocked on Teen Titans Wiki by an admin with an expiry time of 50 years but I do not know why, he/she didn't give a reason. This block happened back in January 18, 2016 the admin is OzzMan, I can't message him at all, I can't do anything at all on the Wiki. I don;t know what I did, I don't know why I was blocked and I don't believe I should be blocked nbecause I don't remember doing anything wrong. Can you please help? Thank You.
I think if you go to the OzzMan's wall on here (CC) and read the last thread you may find your anwser. I think if you explain you did not know and are a new contributor, maybe he will understand. That is the only reason I could find.
@Ripto22475 or Maurice.136, I am a new admin, is there a blog or something that discusses when a block interferes or causes a major violation. I just want to know but I am sure I will only block users that vandalize, users who are trolling, or a reason like that.
Fedual Fairy Tale, there aren't a lot of cases when we jump in, although very occasionally we might ask the admin to reconsider if there are special circumstances (which doesn't generally include blocks for bad or no reason).
On that wiki you would be allowed to insist everything is written with that Christian point of view, but you would't be able to exclude someone of another religion who was keeping to that rule, just because of their own religion. Does that make sense? It's a bit of a subtle distinction.
It would also be a problem if you banned as a method of harassment. For example if you kept banning and doing other actions in order to keep giving unnecessary/false notifications to someone you are in a dispute with.
If you read the User Conduct part of the ToU and the Wikia Community Guidelines, you should see the other actions that are likely to make staff intervene.
Sorry for jumping on your thread with this 14matthi, I felt it was an important question. I see Maurice and Ripto have replied to your original question, thanks both.
That's quite alright, the problem seems to be that he belives he warned me about something I wasn't aware could be wrong and he never did give me any warning. I think I now know what may have happened I uninetionally put in a false info about a character on the wiki I got blocked on but I had no idea it was incorrect and it only happened once. I seems to be a huge misunderstanding so I'm trying to get a full understanding from the admin of that wiki because I am a new contributer to that wiki and had no idea of the rules or anything.
@Sannse Thanks I understand. And thank you very much for replying to my question!
@14matthi I wanted to help a fellow contributor understand why they were blocked. When I looked to help you understand yesterday. I could not find a reason or a warning. I was going to write I was confused as well until I seen the last thread on his wall explaining why (for adding DC comics information on that wikia) to another contributor. I was not sure when I replied to this thread, if that was the reason or was there another reason. I am glad he anwsered with why. I hope things work out for you. All the best to you!
OK Now I think I may understand what happened completly and had zero knowlage of it at the time. Maybe if I can explain that to him he'll understand. Alrhough I'm still not certain, I'll just have to wait until he responds.
Chatmods here have to have been in chat a long time, need to be very well respected by the community and meet other criteria including having the ability to stay calm when there are problems on chat. As Maurice said, we don't promote on request, just when staff think we need more moderators and there is someone we think suitable. Sorry
