"Keep feedback to the blog" Yeah, don't make us actually have to read this stuff because it is on our talk pages.
The bar is horrible, but that is not the most important thing. For me, the same applied to much of the VisualEditor, the New Forum, and much more as I am usually a pretty big nagger and moaner. But this time, a large chunk of the community have spoken up, and have decided that they don't like it, while very few (if any) have said otherwise. You have said yourself, in all of your blogs that the key to running a successful wiki community is to serve the community if you are an admin/ founder.
And, yes I accept that you are staff, and that you have extra rights, but don't let them go to your head. I am not going to have a general rant a bout all of what I don't like, although I do think that we need to have that top-bar removed. It reminds me a lot of a scene in the simpsons when two murerous aliens - kang and kodos - conquer the Earth and then both stand as two presdential canditates. Techniacally it's democracy, and it looks great in your arguments, but do we really have much of a choice.
The reason why I don't feel the need to keep the feedback to the blog os because I feel it is an important enough isseue that it shopuld be put ina place where you cannot fail to read and respond to it.
THIS HAS BEEN SENT TO ALL THE STAFF MEMBERS I COULD FIND, BECAUSE THEN YOU CANNOT IGNORE IT! (I DONT KNOW IF YOU ARE STAFF OR NOT, BUT YOU ALWAYS SEEM TO BE ON THE BLOGS AND THREADS ABOUT IT, ARGUING FOR IT)
Hey. I was just hoping if you could clarify something for me and my friends. Compliance with COPPA is not optional, is it? We heard that a wiki had decided not to ban users who confessed to being younger than 13, and we aren't sure of whether this is within Wikia's ToU. I am inclined to think it isn't, given this:
What I can say, sir? My genuine concerns are true on that prototype layout design for reasons you mentioned when you replied to me in that blog. I also don't like the new nav bar because it's the blank white color doesn't match the darker background colors in most wikis and they won't allow local admins to have optional color changes in their wikis.
I think keeping discussions about different topics separate IS another problem. Because many users are probably forgetting the other problems on Wikia that could potentially lose users and the harm the community. The Global Navigation Bar blogs hasn't getting less comments and that's why there has a posts on layout blog about the nav bar problem.
Hello. I am ZootyCutie. I am a beurecrat of the Mixels Wiki. I am sure you are well aware of the issue that has been going on with Creepermanrules being globally blocked from the Wikia sites. Well, I found this bit of evidence. He apologized a day ago for his actions, but the user that has reported him has been going over the top , to the point that they have been banning members of our own Mixels Wiki on their own wiki that have tried to talk to them (kindly). I did not want to get too much into this, but it has been getting over the top, and I don't want to see one of my Wikimates damaged globally for a small prank (that he apologized and took the blame for) on an offshoot wiki that only has a single page on it.
