You think you can go on articles and simply spam comments as if nobody knew you're a "Community Admin"? No more!
I’m wondering what I would have to do to become an admin. Would love some help on this!!
Hello, I'm Devo DrakeFox and I'm an admin over at Monster Wiki, I'm also the only admin that's currently active at present. The other admins seem to be on an extended break, so I'm currently in search of users who might be interested in helping to maintain the site. If anyone is interested, please message my wall on the wiki.
Hello. I was wondering if I could get an admin role on the Day of Defeat wiki since I am quite active recently and I am the only one active there. I need the admin role because there is a picture that needs to be replaced with another.
I am only starting to learn about editing wikis and all the formatting involved such as templates, Btw I am also active on GTAWiki for any experience reference.
A user helping me build my new wiki said they wanted to become a admin. I agreed, but quickly realized that I did not know how to make someone an admin. That is where you come in. Please help me, I already agreed and I can’t wait to make him an admin.
How do you all best recommend I recruit admins to my new wiki? I am working on finding discords about it but is there any other way?
Okay so... I've been helping to edit and kinda moderate a wiki for a while now with one other person, but neither of us are admins. We've also had no luck getting ahold of the wiki's admin and in their absence, it seems as though every other day, we've had to clear up graffiti or rude messages.
So my questions are
What we do about the absentee admin and how can we become admins?
Is there a way to block/ban the people causing problems throughout the wiki?
So, I moderate a smaller wiki for a band (who's mod team consists of 1 admin and me, a content moderator) and I recently reached out to the admin via his message wall about the new policy about rules pages (since we don't have one.) It's been a little over a day now and... no response. I tried to reach out to him around 2 months ago in late January as well and again... no response. I know he's still around since he made a page on March 12th and replied to a comment on a page on the 8th, so I find it really odd he doesn't check his message wall. What should I do about this? Am I just being impatient?
It's make checking over things easier, especially since the Recent Activity page only tracks the last 30 days. I'd rather not have things fall through the cracks down the line because I wasn't paying attention for too long of a period.
The approval would only be for the admins to know if it was looked over, btw.
Edit: Discovered the "patrol" system immediately after posting this. Unless there's something else that I should be aware of, this question's been answered.
For anyone else wondering:
I'd like to take over admin for Warlock - Master of the Arcane. It's a very dead wiki for a pretty dead game, but some pages are locked.
@MisterWoodhouse (5 March 2021) — The Mobile Main Page has been deprecated as part of the FandomMobile work. The main page on a mobile experience is now wiki stats, the wiki description, Trending Articles, and Trending Categories.
The old MMP had the following sections:
"promote your wiki" (general description + main image)
And all sections could be edited by admins with a link like this:
Now, all the old sections seems to be ignored.
1st question: Are those sections indeed ignored on all types of skins / browsers / apps / displays / devices, and can no longer be viewed by any regular user (not admin)?
So now on the new MMP we have:
wiki stats (number of pages, photos and videos)
generic wiki description
6 trending articles
6 trending categories
The generic wiki description reads:
SITE NAME is a community site that anyone can contribute to.
Discover, share and add your knowledge!
2nd question: How can we edit this description?
3rd question (3 in 1): About the trending content (articles and categories)
How exactly are these articles and categories chosen?
Is there a way to somewhat manipulate this process?
Is there a way to remove one of the sections and increase the other?
About this last question, I ask this because before, with the old MMP we used to let "featured categories" empty, and put 12 entries on "optional categories", and that covered pretty much the entire content of the wiki in a very neat way. But now, some of the trending articles overlap with the trending categories. (For example: we have a big category called Mounts containing all types of steeds, and an article with the same name explaing all the general mechanics of this big group. Now both, article and category appear on the new MMP.) The problem is that some important categories are left out with this new auto selection. Maybe they could skip articles that have the same name of a category that already appear on trending categories?
Any tips on how to improve this new MMP are welcome.
I'm an admin of PPC Wiki, so theoretically I should have every editing right it's possible to have. Today, I went to edit another user's profile and found that, while I could edit from any subheader, I didn't have the button to edit the whole profile, meaning lede content would be inaccessible.
I do still see the normal page edit button on my own profile.
Is this a deliberate change to how user profiles work, or might this be a bug?
Hello. I am going to create the Boss Battle wiki, which showcase video game bosses and how to beat them. However, three words: I. Need. Admins. Where would I go about getting admins?
Recently, me and a few others in the Official Super Smash Bros. Crusade discord have been trying to make much needed changed to the game's wiki page (https://projectcrusade.fandom.com/wiki/Project_Crusade_Wiki). But one user in particular, @PKbrickboy , has been getting in the way. For over a year, they have created multiple pages for characters that have never been made for the fangame nor have any proof of said characters being in development. They are going against the first rule listed in the wiki:
"Unless you are an admin, DO NOT make a page. There are some dangerous people out there and we want to make sure that pages stay secure from the moment they're made. We also want to make sure that they meet the content standards set by other pages.If you would like to volunteer to make a page, join the forum and PM one of the wiki's admins with the information that would be displayed on the page."
Whenever other people deleted the pages for them, PK has consistently added back onto them. In addition, they have constantly made pages for newly released characters without filling any crucial information about the characters themselves. At the same time, various character pages haven't been updated in months.
There have been no active administrators on the wiki, while the owner themselves have not been active since 2012.
Is there any way that new administrators can be appointed without needing the owner to be active? I feel that, if other people can be given the role, the wiki can be given its much needed improvement.
(I can provide screenshots if need be)
Sincerely, Joey S.
I'm an admin on the Goosebumps Wiki, and I'm trying to change the "Sysop" tag to say "ADMIN" (just because we think it's a better and more consistent term). I tried using an old guide here, but it isn't working. It says I should use this page (User-identity-box-group-sysop), but it doesn't work. I think I'm doing something wrong. Can anyone here help?
Some of the admins on Memory Alpha, specifically Gsuvalan and Archduk3, like to argue with me about everything and once they even banned me because i removed an assumtion/speculation from a wiki page because they like to keep the pages full of speculkation and assumptions. They are very agressive and like to make rude remarks when i try to have a calm debate with them. The Memory Alpha policy states that bans and blocks are only used to prevent harmful edits, not to punish users. these hypocrites have broken their own policies. gsuvalan is always arguing about me and talking the opposite opinion just because he wnats to argue with me because gsuvalan doenst like me. Everything i say is ignored. Archduk 3 converses with me less but when he or she does, it is a bit brutal. Archduk will gang up on me with gsuvalan and Archduk is the one that makes some very snide and disrespectful remarks. recently Archduk3 banned me for a week because i acuused them of targeting and bullying me, DESPITE the fact that wiki policy specificaly states that bans and block are only used to prevent harmful edits. The reason provided was that i should "stop trying to make myself a martyr" and that I was harassing them. What the actual hell?! I didnt even edit the page. I just said something on the talk page that made Archduk3 mad. This is ridiculpous how corupt these admins are. They target me and harass and bully me. Please help.
