  • I hope I have come to the right person for this. I understand this post is long, but please bear with me. There have been some serious problems lately on Fantendo regarding a user who has taken advantage of inactive admins to essentially seize control of the wiki, gotten those who disagree with her demoted or banned, and imposed extremely strict rules on the userbase based on her own preferences.

    The user in question, Toukolise, has been a member of the community for quite a while and has become infamous among more tenured users for her repeated emotional abuse and manipulation of members of the community when they fail to live up to standards she imposes, some of these even relating to the personal lives and romantic inclinations of other users. We strive not to offend or hurt her and are aware of her sensitivities, but sometimes mistakes are made. At some points, she has even been angered because a conversation with material that she did not like occurred while she was gone. On at least one instance she took advantage of an emotionally vulnerable user, manipulated him into hating himself for his sexuality, and eventually drove him to attempt suicide even though he tried many times to make things right with her. Most of this abuse took place on the wiki's IRC channel- we have a user in the channel who is an IRCop and support staff for the network Fantendo's channel is hosted on. She was present for many of these situations and willing to provide additional information or corroborate accounts, with logs when possible. We all firmly believe- from a position of concern for someone that most of us considered a friend at one point or another- that the best thing for Toukolise at this point is to pursue serious therapy for assistance with her issues, rather than remain online and in control of IRC or the wiki where she continues to insist on inserting herself into situations that she knows ahead of time will be triggering for her. Of course, as a Wikia staff member, you are not connected to IRC, but we feel that it is important that you understand the context of our problems with her and her history of abuse.

    In her endeavors Toukolise is supported by the users Marinasaka and 1337doom, both of whom are at points in their lives where they are considerably more emotionally vulnerable than usual. All three use their positions as a way to belittle the young userbase of the wiki, frequently banning them for expressing dissenting opinions. At one point Toukolise promised to pursue the psychiatric help she needed but reneged on her word. As her users, we believe she should be removed from power. As her friends, for her safety and stability, we believe she should seek serious help. We can only influence one of these actions but hope for both.

    In short, please demote Toukolise and Marinasaka, and repromote former 'crat Shroobario (or myself) in their place. Whoever is promoted will retain power long enough to fix the damage done to the wiki, and eventually hand over administrative duties to a more active user. What follows will be the signatures of users who can and will validate the claims made in this post and support the immediate demotion of Toukolise and Marinasaka. Some users are likely offline as of this posting, so all signatures may not appear immediately.

    EDIT: As you can see, we've gotten a ton of signatures. The community is very clearly and very enthusiastically in support of removing them from power. If you do this, this conflict will be over immediately, and you'll likely not be bothered by us again.

      If you find yourself needing staff help, Special:Contact is the best way to get it. We can definitely make sure that threads don't get deleted and that the community has a chance to acheive consensus, but it needs to be done on the wikia itself.

      That's very reassuring.

      Edit: So umm… something like this will work if there is consensus?

  • Http://vsbattles.wikia.com

    Has copied many things from these 2 websites

    http://outskirtsbattledomewiki.com http://factpile.wikia.com

    They hardly give an license to a image http://vsbattles.wikia.com/wiki/File:Amon.jpg

    ^ Image has another sites link and doesn't have any licenses

    Staff are abusive with there powers as 10 and more people I know of have been banned for proving admin wrong in a not aggressive argument where staff insults a member and mocks them mostly a user named SeiryuShin who admitted and wishes for the wiki to be deleted.

    They have plagiarised Stolen art with logos and links

    They have not shown any type of attribution.

    • As far as text goes, reusing material is acceptable under the Creative Commons license as long as they provide proper attribution on every article and link back to the wiki. There's an example of how to provide proper attribution in our Terms of Use here:

      http://www.wikia.com/Licensing#Using_Wikia_content

      Images are a bit trickier. Wikia is a host for user generated content, and most images are uploaded by individual users under the fair use provision of copyright law. The same protection would generally apply to both communities.

      In any case, it would be better if you sent your concerns to Special:Contact.
