I think it's coming to valentine's day and I wanted to ask if vaginas (one of those sweetheart organs like the lips) are one of those sweetheart/valentine's stuff and fit for that holiday this month? It maybe known that sex is somewhat related to love since Valentine's Day is the day of love.
Hi Sannse. Just a small question: if a user on a wiki is acting like his edits are untouchable and that he "owns" the edits and gets upset whenever others try to improve his contributions, what would Wikia do? I ask because a user on a wiki is calling me a vandal for "improving his edits" and acts like he has "ownership" over the edits he has made, making it near impossible for me to actually improve them without being yelled at.
The issue in question happened a few weeks ago, but still want to have some Staff input about this for future cases. :)
It depends on the wiki, and what stage in its lifecycle it's in. If it's a small wiki without much community, then we are unlikely to do anything other than advise people to move on.
if it's a larger one with a community that are unhappy about how it's run, we may intervene (if necessary) to help the community decide on the future of the admin/wikia
It also depends on the topic. If the wikia is "Admins Test Area", then even if it has something of a community, there's not going to be any point in pushing the admin to change how they run it
Over all, I would say that unless there is an active community who want to change things, then I would suggest shrugging, and moving on. Probably to another wikia on the same topic that will have a better chance of surviving.
The wiki is a small one where only me and the founder edited (I'm a bureaucrat on the wiki) and it's a wiki that's been around for a year or so and which would focus on a topic that a lot of people could help out with. I was helping out the founder with contributions to an aspect of the wiki and helping to improve the wiki overall (infoboxes, fancy features, design and so on), which necessitated that I improve upon the founder's contributions in certain areas to standardise the articles to other articles I had created and edited.
The founder did not like how I was editing pages he was heavily involved in, sending me a message telling me "don't just touch my stuff, how would you like it if I started editing your content?", to which I responded that wiki's are community projects, not owned by anyone and that I'm free to go in and make changes without telling anyone (per the CC-BY-SA and general open publicness of wiki's) and that I also wouldn't care if someone edited anything I had contributed towards, unless it was straight up vandalism.
When I pointed this out, he decided to suggest that me pointing this out was "not constructive" and he left pretty much immediately after that. I became aware today that the founder in question went to one of his other wiki's (he has bureaucratic rights on a bunch of wiki's and in many cases, he is the only contributor) where he proceeded to talk to an editor who had edited on the wiki in question (who had done very little except post some wall posts on the wiki in question) and called me a vandal for editing his work and suggested I was being disruptive. I haven't really bothered to contact him since, except to tell him that I'm happy he said it and will continue to contribute and improve "his wiki" (I use that loosely, since it's not his :P) without his help.
If you need any links to this, let me know and I can post some links here :)
The admin in question has decided that me improving his "work" is vandalism. I have already decided to resign from his wiki, but I find his insinuations about me both insulting and completely misguided, which tells me the admin in question does not understand wiki's at all and thinks the content he has made is completely untouchable. He left me a long wall post quoting a dictionary definition of the word "vandalism" and pretty much called my contributions such, which does give the clear indication he believes that nobody can improve his edits or rewrite the articles.
I'm sorry, I don't understand the question. Community Highlights can only be added by staff or admins. We are going to put a technical block on others doing it, but for now we will just remove any that get put on mistakenly.
I would not put a technical block on it, because people want to use those categories before you add them to avoid the congrads comments from you or another admin. As for the first revision, I've added it to the community highlights so my blog can dodge staff edits to promote it there.
I don't think you understand Crazy - blogs can *only* be promoted by admins or Staff. A user is *not allowed* to add it to their own blog, and they cannot deem their own work "highlight-able" in an objective manner.
What are you saying? Theqmayn is not blocked in the PvZ Wiki for she left in 2013 and has not contributed there for a long time, not even now. I loathe to say this but I think you are trying to impersonate her. And even if you are not, if you say that you are using that account to evade blocks, then I don't think you should continue to do so, as you would be held accountable sockpuppeting.
EDIT: You also did not create your account in the PvZ Wiki nor have you made any edits there. So there is no single way that you could actually be the real the Theqmayn.
Please help me with something @ Plants vs. Zombies Wiki: Every time I edit something then BF10 will revert the edits regardless if the edit is good or not. Post a message on Milesprower2's wall to make him block BF10 from Plants vs. Zombies Wiki for 5 years.
Hi. I just wanted to say that since 2012, a user we call "Maria" has been on wikia. She doesn't speak much English at all, other than "Yes" "Lol" and "No way." With a few exceptions of some strange things she says in chat.
Now, she was banned on several wikis before and we didn't see her for a while. Then she came back with the username, Ma luissahhotmail.com, and most users thought it was her. But I, along with other users, noticed her spamming threads with stuff irrelevant to what the topic was. We ask her to stop but she doesn't. Many users look at her as if she is a goddess and she rules the wiki while I think she should be banned due to the fact that she could easily be a sock or a troll. She does it on several wikis and ADMINS even had to contact her on the Total Drama Wiki. I don't like being mean but she speaks spanish and there is a spanish TD wiki. I'm not sure why she's even on the english TD wiki. She could also possibly be underaged because of lack of vocabulary and understanding us.
