  • How do I lock my Wiki and only allow specific people too edit it.

    • You can't. It's against ToU to do that. Just don't share it with someone you don't want to know, and you'll be good for a while.

    • Its an offcial thread.

    • What do you mean by official thread? If you are trying to create an official wiki maintained by a company, you would probably need to contact Wikia. Otherwise, the whole idea of Fandom is that it is community collaboration based content.

    • You can't not allow people to edit. Simple as that.

    • Admins can block trolls, vandals, spammers and rogue IPs, but it must be justified and limited in numbers.

    • Technically speaking you can block anyone who comes to your wiki for no reason if you really wanted to. It just makes people not want to come to it in which case a blog or something might suit your needs better.

      Also, admins acting like that make it more likely that users would report your wiki to Staff for power abuse.

      That doesn't mean anything though.

      Wikia Staff don't particularly care what happens on most wikis. They only care if it is in one form or another a violation of their Terms of Service of which banning people is not. This is for good reason too. Wikia hosts thousands upon thousands of wikis and if they had to respond to every wiki who claimed power abuse (a relative term) they would never get anything done.

      This said, I don't condone doing it.
