  • I really didn't want to bother you but as a Community Editor of the Criminal Case Wiki (criminal-case-grimsborough.wikia.com), I must respect a warning that you've made clear (http://criminal-case-grimsborough.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:40618), but I also must respect the Terms of Use (http://www.wikia.com/Terms_of_Use) as well, so to ensure people at that wiki are not violating the Wiki's rules, I had to notify all users of that wiki that their use of the Wiki is also governed by Wikia's "fine print" (Terms of Use) as well. Is having multiple accounts and/or editing as an anon against the Terms of Use? I must respect Wikia's decision to revoke global editing privileges for Abs and Chan, but I would like to know as to why these two are blocked, as they are both senior editors of the aforementioned wiki. As much as I try, I try to enforce the rules and ensure that everything stays with bounds of Wikia's global terms of use.

    If using multiple accounts and/or using anon accounts in addition to the main account is not allowed in Wikia, should I take note of it? It has been alarming that a growing amount of users (not limited to the Wikia I administer aforementioned) have been using multiple accounts, and some senior editors (not limited to the the Wikia which I'm a community editor at) have been blocked due to them abusing their powers by just having multiple accounts alone. I should point out that I would be willing to work WITH you to ensure that there are no further Terms of Service violations in the aforementioned wiki. I should understand that Icy (Seif) caused multiple "power abuses" (which caused him to have his privileges globally revoked), causing him to hate Abs and Chan.

    I don't want to bother you any further, but I just want to know if I need to enforce "one account only" in the Wiki that I administer and to ensure there's no further anon violations in that Wiki that I administer. Like I said I'd be willing to work with you to ensure that all users are allowed only one account at that Wiki. I apologize if I wasted any of your time, but I just want to make sure that the wiki that I administer stays in bounds and in-line within Wikia's Terms of Use.

    • In fact my sister is my twin. But also don't discount how much children pick up their parent's "feel".

      Mainly I'm talking about wikis which have a zero-tolerance for socks even when the other account is not acting up. Just being there can be enough, especially if one is blocked (fairly or not), then the mere presence of the other can be wrongly considered socking for the first.

      Which is why I make my kids only login in from school and not from here. To keep the ips diff.

    • TwoBearsHigh-Fiving wrote: In a situation like that, I'd recommend that one assumes good faith. In the case of a "Bad Twin", unfortunately if you must ban for that twin's actions, it will have to be on that account. That was a good way to handle that situation. 

      So I should or should not have banned both accounts? Can you clarify? The wording is kind of ambiguous to me.

  • Hi Sean, I took a look at the guide (like BrandonRhea told me too), and, now yes. I am really, RAY-LAY SHAW-RE I'd like to put Dynamic Page List on this wiki, plus, it's a part of our partnership with the english one, so I think we should do it :)

    Well, thank you for your support, and have a nice day,

    Your favorite breakfast (I hope),

  • Hi. I'm G-SANtos, an admin from Digimon Wiki. I'm here to talk about something that happened months ago. I apologize for taking so long to report this, but at the time I was too busy to deal with this, and after I no longer was, I was focused in other stuff. I recently remembered about this, and I wanted to solve it before I get too busy again.


    Some months ago, there was a problem with this user's account. When the account was blocked, he was unable to edit his own talk page, which is weird because the block didn't include this, and he had to contact me through other Wikis. I moved the comments to his talk page, where you can read all of them, however, one of the Wikis was the Networks of Destiny Wiki. When KimeramonRocks used my talk page there, the Wiki's founder, Alex.Dowski, appeared on KimeramonRocks's Digimon Wiki talk page and said this:

    "I have no idea why my wiki is being involved in this gsantos thing. It was a side project for my and my friends story series that's mainly been abandoned and all of a sudden I'm getting notifications about it. Anyways, I have no idea what this is about and I'd appreciate if that whoever is involving my wiki would stop."

    He then deleted my talk page and blocked me for a year without giving a reason, and without allowing me to edit my own talk page to discuss my ban. I tried to contact him, but he didn't answer me, and I think that maybe he didn't even read the messages.

    I asked my co-admin, KrytenKoro, to contact him about it. Alex.Dowski then removed KrytenKoro's message from his talk page, which is against Wikia's rules and changed my block to the following:

    "Intimidating behaviour/harassment: Okay, since I need to give you a reason so you don't bug other people to message me: You used my wiki without permission to dispute a block on another wiki. This is not my or my wikis problem and I want nothing to do ..."

    Though still for a year, and I can't edit my own talk page.


    I would like you to do something about it since I apparently can't. I'm not an editor of Networks of Destiny Wiki, and I'm only counted as an user because some edits were imported to them, and I also don't intend to edit there, and the Wiki is abandoned. However, I'm reporting this because of that admin's attitude of "I don't know what this is about and I don't care, I just don't want my Wiki involved, therefore, BANHAMMER!!", which is an unacceptable behavior for an Wiki admin and, although I don't know how Alex.Dowski was as an admin, I can't allow him to take this behavior to any other Wiki in case he ever plans on founding or modding a Wiki again.

    • Blocking is something that is left to the discretion of the local Admins unless they are clearly violating the Terms of Use. While that certainly sounds like unfrinedly and unwelcoming behavior, the latitude we give local communities isn't being exceeded by the steps you describe. Your best bet is to focu your efforts elsewhere where you will be more welcome.

    • Also please do not use that tone to a staff member, if he is not to interfere with it, do not use harsh words otherwise , you will be claimed guilty.

  • Hi, Semanticdrifter!

    I was wondering if I could speak to you somewhere in private about an issue I'm having with a wiki. You're likely very busy but some time out of your schedule would be greatly appreciated. If you'd like to meet in Chat, I'm more than happy to do that.

    • We generally prefer to keep everything routed through Special:Contact, since it lets us keep a "paper trail" and know what has and hasn't been said in any particular situation.

  • Yo we have a problem in our wiki. It is looking like, in thehttp://fr.shingekinokyojin.wikia.com/wiki/Wiki_Shingeki_No_Kyojin, the bureaucrats cannot name any administrator or bureaucrats. Is it due to the ranks that i think its you  added?

  • Hello. I hate to bother you, but I was wondering the reason for not deleting the robot wiki. I never got a response back to my email, but since it is a duplicate wiki, copied from someone else (which like I said I regret that now) shouldn't it be deleted? I am thinking about editing at the wiki where I copied the info from again, since this is all about a dispute I had with the founder.  Thank you again, and I won't bother you again about this, but I just wanted to understand the decision not to close it. I appreciate your help and I hope you have a wonderful day.

    • Generally, we don't close wikias on request since they are community projects. That said, if there are specific Terms of Use issues like improperly attributed content we can definitely discuss the matter further. Please reach out to us via Special:Contact and we can take another look.

    • I do agree with that policy, since you wouldn't want someone to close the wiki when people are indeed working on it. I will send a message through special:contact. Thank you so much for your help. I hope I haven't come across as rude or bossy. I have been trying to be as polite as I can. Thank you so much again.

  • Hi, as you may know my wiki got hacked yesterday and hackers took over my account and deleted 300+ pages. Can you re-admin me on my wiki, and restore the wiki from a backup?

    Anything would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    WikiElephant (the real one)
