== Absurdopedia wiki is leaving ==
  +

<div style="border:1px black dotted; padding: 2px;">
  +
Hello.
  +
  +
There is [http://absurdopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Форум:Размещение_Абсурдопедии#.D0.97.D0.B0?uselang=en the community decision] signed by 19 users (56839 edits total) in support for moving Absurdopedia out of Wikia. You may check the voting page with a Google translator if you wish (the first statement, however, has been translated into English already).
  +
  +
According to this consensus, we've successfully exported the whole database and moved the project. Because of this we're requesting a deletion of your copy (absurdopedia.wikia.com section).
  +
  +
While our pages are valued high in the search engines, it could take a big time for Google etc. to adjust their search database, so assuming your good faith we expect you to support a code 301 HTTP redirection from our old URL to the new domain, http://absurdopedia.net/. It's also important because there're unauthorized mirrors of our website out there in the Internet, and otherwise they could be mistook by Google as an original website. Even while there're many links to our old location on Wikia in blogs etc., it is not essential to substain such a redirection forever, just for a year or about it would be more than enough.
  +
  +
Also, as Wikia hosts a large number of Uncyclopedia language sections, we expect the corresponding update to be applied to their interwiki tables. The same request will be sent to Uncyclomedia and to other independent wikis of Uncyclopedia family.</div>
  +
''(this message was sent to you by one of our admins, [[User:Юрник]] ([[uncyclopedia:User:Praetorian]]), via [[Special:Contact]] about two days ago, but you haven't replied (maybe haven't checked email yet). As you insisted on [http://absurdopedia.wikia.com/?diff=221396 sending this request to your talkpage], here it is. <small>(but personally I believed that Special:Contact would be better)</small>'' {{User:Edward_Chernenko/Подпись}} 05:45, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
  +
  +
P.S. Of course, Wikia (technically) has a '''right to offend the community and try to destroy our project''' (by leaving itself a copy at a high-promoted URL), but I always believed that '''you're above such a behavior'''. Hope I wasn't wrong. If there is a place where community doesn't have right to make decisions on its wiki's path, this place isn't Wikia that Angela meant to create (a good cooperative project I always found to be nice for starting a new wiki).
  +
  +
'''Don't do this and accept our moving please'''. Look, I know, you had problems with many local communities recently (because of New Look), but it's not worth it to try to keep them this way. The community won't return anyway, so it's just a question of what would you select: support Russian Uncyclopedia (it's a brother-project of Wikipedia, you know) or make it overcome the damage (caused by the lack of redirect) for several years. '''Please reconsider your position and make the right choice'''. N extra dollars from ads are not worth making damage to the cooperative project.

Studies done

When wikipedia created a new look, in addition to allowing veteran editors to revert to the old style, they had actual studies done.

http://usability.wikimedia.org/wiki/Usability,_Experience,_and_Evaluation_Study

Has there been any studies done on the new wikia look?

Thank you,

Anno1404 00:36, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. Yes, we've done both user testing and focus groups as part of the work on the new look. That's been mentioned on the blogs a few times :) There will be more of that in the future too -- sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 18:59, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

Searching for blog comments

Hi. I made a comment at this blog post:

This search finds it.

But clicking the link does not take one to the comment page containing my comment. How does one find past comments and replies in long blog comment threads?

The blog comments are not dated, and so it is next to impossible in a long thread. I tried clicking page after page, and doing calendar calculations, but it is too difficult. --Timeshifter (talk) 00:59, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

It's a tricky one... currently you can click the date on contributions or recent changes to go directly to the comment page, but that doesn't show you the comment in context. My preference is for us to add anchoring, so that clicking the comment link takes you to the specific comment within the thread. I'm talking to the people working on the feature about this possibility (among other tweaks) but I don't know if that idea will be taken up yet -- sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 19:02, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

(unindent) Thanks. The search pulls up this link:

Special:Contributions/Timeshifter pulls up this link:

As you said neither one takes me to the specific blog comment page to see the comment and replies (if any) in context. I suggest using true dates for blog comments. At least then one could look at the date embedded in the above URLs:

  • 2010-08-17 232230

and then narrow down the pages where the blog comment is found. Anchoring is a good idea. I don't the technicalities though. I know that talk-page section watchlisting has long been requested on Wikipedia. --Timeshifter (talk) 08:15, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Wiki Web Address

Hi i am going to make a Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok wiki. The thing is they have one which web adress is mythicaldetectiveloki.wikia.com (mythical detective loki) but it has no information and i was wondering if i should make a new one called detectiveloki.wikia.com ( detective loki) because its shorter please help me.

Could I take over the Entrepreneur.wikia.com

Hi, There is a 1 page wiki done 7 months ago that needs a new owner. Can I get that? See: http://Entrepreneur.wikia.com.

I'm doing an open source business plan for someone now. It would make sense to have us run with that wiki. It would still be a fully public anyone can edit wiki. We'd just use it for lots of new open source content that is about business and being an entrepreneur.

I've never done a 'take over' of an existing namespace in the past. Thanks. Rauterkus 18:38, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Forums

Hi, Who should i go to if i wanted to set up forums on my wiki?--Sw9889 (Have something to say?) 14:59, September 22, 2010 (UTC)

For new wikis, they should all be set up already. Have a look at Forum:Index on your wiki -- sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 04:11, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

Themes are gone

The themes are gone from the Monaco and Answers skins. Since you usually announce these changes, and there wasn't anything on admin talkpages, staff blogs or central froum, may I assume this is an unintended glitch? --◄mendel► 19:20, September 22, 2010 (UTC)

Themes still exist as admin choices, and you can still change the look via your personal CSS pages. This is part of the transition towards the new look. Sorry for the missed annoucement -- my fault, I was confused about when this aspect was going live. -- sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 04:13, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

Is beta over?

I applied for beta back in August and you accepted me, but I don't have that access email yet. Was I too late? Please reply.

Dk64rules (talkcontribs)

It's still going, alongside the public beta announced this week. If you haven't had your invite yet, you should do so tomorrow :) -- sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 04:14, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

Banning

I was banned from Microwiki because my friends used my email so they would not get all of those updates. I think the Admin, Cajak, blocked me only because he did not belive in the pags I created. I think it is not fair that he can block me. I did nothing wrong. Rsmall1413 00:57, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

Admins can't see your email address. But I can see more details - including your IP. It looks to me as though they were correct in thinking you were using multiple accounts. I suggest you move on and don't do that wherever you choose to edit next. -- sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 04:19, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

Wikia's new look - request

Hello, Sannse. :)

Before I begin, I believe I can fairly say I represent the Fallout modding wiki project (falloutmods.wikia.com), being one of three, and the most active bureacrats there. I would like to request two things from wikia:

  • One: please DO NOT apply the new beta skin to this wiki. The effects upon the users who regularyly use will be harsh, considering most are rarely on it. In fact, most users are from foreign countries, and their English is improving, but still poor. Editing the wiki for them is, well, not an easy task. I constantly have to clean up most of the files uploaded, categorize everything myself, manage all of the templates / categories / forums myself, and I'm not intentionally trying to sound like I dislike the work. I enjoy contributing to the wiki almost daily, but I simply don't like the idea of changing the entire layout of the website, making it harder to use for some of the still-learning users.
Also, this will eventually lead me to have a large job re-working the whole wiki's templates, because the changes will require it. I implore you to consider this, reply, and take this to wikia.
  • Two: I would like to request the removal of the Rich Text Editor from this wiki. I believe it was quite recently that the Vault, or the Fallout wiki (fallout.wikia.com) petitioned for it's removal, and was thus granted the notion. The relevance to my wiki? We are sister wiki's, and I believe what can be done for the Vault can be done for Vault-Tec Labs, albeit the major difference in regular contributions between the two.
Please, all of this is in order to ensure that the wiki continues to be usable and easily accessible to the general crowd of users it attracts.

On this, have a nice day :)

Ghouly89 (Talk) 01:38, September 29, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Ghouly. I've been looking at the Fallout modding wiki, and I don't think you will have problems with the new look. From what I see, the main tweaks needed are to some tables with a 720px fixed width. Some of those are templates, which means the edit only needs to be done once for a whole batch. By the look of those tables, they will fit well with the new width too. If you need help with the tweaks, let me know.
On the RTE - if your wiki has templates and so on that it don't work well with that then we can turn it off. We need to know that the community agrees, because you are affecting the tools of other users. So please talk to the users on the wiki, and let us know what you need via Special:Contact. Thanks -- Sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 00:15, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Oasis input

Hey Sannse, I'm the admin for the Appleseed Wikia, and although I'm not a big fan of Oasis, I don't find it as terrible as some people do (although that's probably cause I haven't invested time and effort into customizing my common.css file like the others have).

My two biggest complaints over the change, please take this to heart, is the loss of the Sidebar, and the narrowness of the layout.


  • Having a proper menu makes your wikia seem like a full-fledged website, and when organized properly makes all the major content easily accessible. I know a lot of wikis don't really use the Sidebar properly, but please take a look at mine; after Oasis comes, I have no idea how I'm gonna cram all those categories into the rigid, four menus/seven entries concept that's coming. It would be bearable if we at least had pop-up submenus within, but that's not so great either. Please, let's at least keep the Sidebar unchanged, or replace it with something similar, with a vertical layout and submenus.


  • The narrow width of the articles makes it impossible to achieve an enclopedia-style look, and if you have 16:9 images on the site (even small thumbnails), they virtually span the whole article - not a good look.


  • Also, can we get a bigger site logo space (and without the Random Page and Wiki Activity buttons barging in?) It's gonna be impossible to make anything unique fit in there ; )


Lastly, can my site be added to the beta testing program before it ends in a few days? I'd like to do some experimenting.


Thanks, Moonraker-6 22:32, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback Moonraker, we are gathering it all as it comes in and passing it to the rest of the staff team.
I can't add your wiki to the beta program, but the new look will be available for you (and other logged in users) to select from later this week. It won't be default yet, so you'll have time to experiment with it -- Sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 00:48, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Regarding the New Skin

It's stupid. I'm sorry to bother you about this, but I have to take a direct approach. It's driving me insane. THE NEW SKIN IS STUPID. And, as a tip from me to you, many people are going to leave unless you at least make it optional. Please don't lie to us, we know you're not listening. I cannot believe that you're forcing this new skin on us. 99% of Wikia's users hate the new skin. And you call yourself a community site? I think not.

Look, I'm sorry if this sounds harsh. I'm in an incredibly bad mood today and I'm fed up with your staff not listening to us. Read the comments on the recent blog post and you'll understand where I'm coming from.

Dead Space Wiki- No Active Bureaucrats

Hello, I am a Sysop from the Dead Space wiki and I would like to ask for your assistance in a matter of some importance: It appears that all of our Admins excluding myself, including all of our Bureaucrats, have become inactive and have been so for quite some time. I have heard nothing from any of these fellows and have become quite concerned for the wiki given this lack of Admins. As such, to ensure our wiki can continue to grow should none of the Bureaucrats return, I am formally requesting Bureaucrat status to make certain that the wiki can continue running smoothly. I apologize if I seem forward or the like, but I have stuck with the Dead Space wiki day by day since I joined and would hate to see it fall into disrepair; if you could assist us in the matter, the wiki, and myself, would be most grateful to you.

Thank you for your time,

--Haegemonia(talk) 12:52, October 2, 2010 (UTC)

Ah, I forgot to add this in the Main post, I apologize, I'm rather busy:
The reason I did not go through the Wiki Adoption is that I believe, given we are a very active wiki, this would act as a unique case and has more to do with ensuring there is a functioning admin staff then resurrecting a dead wiki. --Haegemonia(talk) 12:58, October 2, 2010 (UTC)
Hi, is it this wiki? It looks like a couple of admins have logged on, but none of you have edited for a while. With an active community, we ask that you discuss rights changes with the community and/or other admins. So I would suggest setting up a page there to talk about it, and leaving a message for the other admins who have been (sort of) around recently to ask for their input. Then just let us know on the adoptions page or via Special:Contact. Brandon and Wendy can help even in special cases like this -- Sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 00:56, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
Well, actually, I have been editing quite a bit consistently for the past while (if you check my contributions page or the activity feed you will see), but that's neither here nor there. I will use the adoptions page then, should their presence continue to be nugatory, as the only other admin to have logged in even remotely recently was Auguststorm1945, and that was more then a week ago... Anywho, I apologize for taking up your time and I thank you for your assistance. --Haegemonia(talk) 01:28, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

TOS vs. toolbar move

Could you have a look at w:c:guildwars and tell me if the "New Look" reskin I've installed is TOU-compatible? I find it very hard to guess what the words "proper display" encompass. --◄mendel► 22:31, October 2, 2010 (UTC)

No, that's not a properly functioning toolbar, and that's not a correctly displaying Wikia header. I'm afraid that's exactly the sort of change that we are concerned about -- Sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 00:59, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for checking. I guess the toolbar will have to stay in my way, then. --◄mendel► 09:56, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
Excuse me, just for clarification: what precisely is not correct about our Wikia header? The width? --◄mendel► 10:18, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

copied from my talkpage on GuildWiki:

Thanks for changing the Toolbar, Mendel. Please can you also replace the formatting of the top Wikia bar and the footer? That's a change to the view of the interface that's against the ToU. We especially want users to see the actual look as the first release starts -- it's important that we see how the actual skin works large-scale, rather than this adapted version of it. Many thanks -- Sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 23:47, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Sannse, I have been asking about this on your talk specifically because the TOU is not clear on what exactly I am allowed to change. Does this answer mean, nothing outside article space whatsoever? --◄mendel► 00:09, October 5, 2010 (UTC)

Traffic

Is there any way i can see the traffic on my wiki? i noticed on the spotlight explanation page that there were graphs depicting the traffic increase.

It's like saying "I threw rocks at a window, but you didn't give me a warning, so...". You are welcome to come back when your block expires in a couple of days... as long as you aren't disruptive again -- Sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 01:08, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
well thats my cousin he always gets warnings (he threw a baseball threw a window and got a warning neva did it again) :Þ hell neva stop you made him mad now hell do it more (always does) >,>

New Skin

I'm not sure if you're the one to ask, but if we have a Monaco skin with a banner across the top, will that be affected by the new skin? Here's the link: www.winx.wikia.com Roxy13~Dad, I'm a fairy! 17:53, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

Yes. It will not show on the New Look. --◄mendel► 22:54, October 3, 2010 (UTC)
Wonderful. I hate these stupid Wikia people. Roxy13~Dad, I'm a fairy! 09:51, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Bot Flag

Ive just made an account on the Runescape Classic wiki and i would like a Bot flag so i can get on with my AWB editing. On the Runescape wiki i have a bot flag already on user PurpleElephantBot. I already asked a Bureaucrat for a flag but he said he wasn't able to. I wasn't really sure who to come to :/ To summarise, Bot Flag on PurpleElephantBot on the Runescape Classic Wiki Plzzzzzz, Thanks ^_^. - [Pharos]Talk

It doesn't really make sense to use a different account for your bot on the two wikis since you'd need to have the new bot listed at Community_Central_talk:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPage. If you have that already (as for your PurpleElephantBot), you can immediately edit any other Wikia wiki (check whether the wiki allows it), but your bot edits will of course not be hidden until you get the bot flag for it. --◄mendel► 14:17, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
My bot, PurpleElephantBot IS listed, but i want a bot flag so its edits will be hidden on the RSC wiki, or does the one on the Runescape wiki cross over? What was this for? w:c:runescapeclassic:Special:Contact I don't really understand what you meant for me to head to. - [Pharos]Talk
03:09, October 5, 2010 (UTC)
Pharos: If you have agreement to use the bot on the Runescape Classic wiki, then you can ask for the flag via the link Xd13558 gave you :) It's possible to use a bot on any wiki without a flag, the flag just hides the bot's edits so they don't flood the changes list -- Sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 04:36, October 5, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for clearing that up. Ill just fill out the message now - [Pharos]Talk

Your definition of "spam"

Your definition of spam is distorted. Frequent and angered dissent is not spam. If it was, most everyone would be blocked on the CPFW- especially me -at least once.

If you read my comments, you will see that they are either relevant (albeit angered) or agreeing with a previous poster in a reply.

How is "I agree with you" spam? Or, how is quoting you or stating my bitter dissent with your (in my opinion) foolish move spamming?

I am not spamming you, at least not by my and the CPFW's standards. Those people that curse at you, those who just say "<censored> the you, Staff!", ect., are spamming. I am not. I can not recall a single comment in which I said something that was not relevant to either the post or someone else's comment.


Allow me to give you my definition of spam:

"The consistant, frequent posting of absolutely irrevelant comments which pertain absolutely nothing to the subject at hand, and do not present any sort of relevance to the topic being discussed, whatsoever."
Now, if you give me yours, since this is the wiki you govern and define, I will adhere to that... -but since you only call me a spammer with little to back yourself up, I must use my standard, and by what I typed up there, I am doing no wrong. Please, tell me exactly what you think spam is, and why you say it is such. Just because I have stated a point multiple times does not mean I am a spammer. Central Wikia's Recent Changes needs to consolidate the blog comments. That would make the thing seem less cluttered.

Also, if you must block me for this alleged spam, PLEASE, for the sake of my sanity, PLEASE only block on Central, and NOT globally! If I spam here, why do I lose the right to edit the CPFW for three days? Why are you punishing me globally for what I did locally?


So, if you could give me your exact definition of spam, I'll try and fix what I do on here. If you don't, though, I shall rely on my definitions and have reason to be angered if I get blocked.

If you don't respond within eight days, I'd consider that as "not a response". You have a lot on your hands, so I can wait for a reply for a while. After all, you can't read everything, although you seem to be monitoring me a little more than everyone else. Do you have a grudge against me?



-- TurtleShroom™! Jesus Loves You and Died for You!!  :) :) OASIS?! DO NOT WANT; DO NOT WANT!! Come, my friends! Together, we shall make a new look for Wikia! We shall make... THE OASIS!! 23:53, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

P.S.: Why are you exempting Uncyclopedia from your punishment? You should force them to use Oasis just like everybody else. Don't play favorites if you want to assimilate and make transitioning easier. Just because it is a "parody" of Wikipedia, doesn't mean it deserves special treatment. If all communities are equally important, and if all communities "need" Oasis, and if you want to eliminate all confusion when going from wiki to wiki, as you so claim, you can't play favorites just because you like Uncyclopedia better than the rest of us. So please, don't be hypocritical. Uncyclopedia needs to assimilate into Oasis just as much as everyone else.

I didn't read any of that, except the last paragraph, but is it true that Uncyclopedia is exempt from the forced Oasis skin? If so, why? I know you're a big fan on Uncyclopedia, but that hardly seems right. And they aren't parodying Wikipedia with Monobook anymore since Wikipedia uses Vector. Karate Jesus 01:47, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
TurtleShroom. I would call your repeated postings of the same (frequently abusive) comments "spam". You have made your point, you know we have read them, enough is enough.
As for blocking on just this wiki -- no, you can't be disruptive here and then expect to carry on using Wikia elsewhere.
Karate Jesus: Monobook is the closest we have to vector, so works as a parody skin. This has nothing to do with my personal preference, it's a hold over from them moving to Wikia (like WoWWiki's URL). I don't believe it's something we will support forever, but we are leaving it in place for now -- Sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 04:52, October 5, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, then why not support Monobook as an option for all wikis? Just because Uncyclopedia made some "deal", they get to use it and all of the rest of us are forced to use Oasis? That's ridiculous. Whether or not you have personal investment in that wiki aside, that's just not right. Karate Jesus 15:13, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

RE:Blog comments

Dear Sannse,

I admit that I have made a few main comments, but I have mostly been only replying to others' comments for exactly this reason. I also will admit that my sarcasm may be a tad less constructive than some other comments, but they still fully reflect my views on the New Look. And, seeing that I am one of the founders of the AWA, we can both assume I feel strongly about my opinion on the subject. If you fee that replying to comments drastically pushes others' opinions out of the way, feel free to say so on my talk page.

Checkuser request

Hi, I'm just wondering if you can do a CheckUser on these 2 users and see if anything comes up.

User:L3VIATH4N - No longer edits at the BLWiki after an apparent incident involving attempting to make several large changes to the Wiki without getting community support first

User:TrollofReason - Seems to be getting off to the same start as L3VIATH4N. Has already planned many "big changes" to several articles on the Wikia, and even announced his intentions, but did not request community input, and claimed he's gonna start anyway.

So if you could CheckUser them for me, I'd love to see if TrollofReason is the former L3VIATH4N. Thanks! AtlasSoldier 16:41, October 5, 2010 (UTC)

I'm really sorry

I'm really sorry for the rude and mean comments I left on the blogs. Truly I am, it's just that I (like many other users) am angry and disapproving of the new skin. I just wanted to say that I've rethought my actions and am apologizing. I hope you and the rest of the staff can forgive me. Again, sorry for everything. Have a nice afternoon.

Absurdopedia wiki is leaving

Hello.

There is the community decision signed by 19 users (56839 edits total) in support for moving Absurdopedia out of Wikia. You may check the voting page with a Google translator if you wish (the first statement, however, has been translated into English already).

According to this consensus, we've successfully exported the whole database and moved the project. Because of this we're requesting a deletion of your copy (absurdopedia.wikia.com section).

While our pages are valued high in the search engines, it could take a big time for Google etc. to adjust their search database, so assuming your good faith we expect you to support a code 301 HTTP redirection from our old URL to the new domain, http://absurdopedia.net/. It's also important because there're unauthorized mirrors of our website out there in the Internet, and otherwise they could be mistook by Google as an original website. Even while there're many links to our old location on Wikia in blogs etc., it is not essential to substain such a redirection forever, just for a year or about it would be more than enough.

Also, as Wikia hosts a large number of Uncyclopedia language sections, we expect the corresponding update to be applied to their interwiki tables. The same request will be sent to Uncyclomedia and to other independent wikis of Uncyclopedia family.

(this message was sent to you by one of our admins, User:Юрник (uncyclopedia:User:Praetorian), via Special:Contact about two days ago, but you haven't replied (maybe haven't checked email yet). As you insisted on sending this request to your talkpage, here it is. (but personally I believed that Special:Contact would be better) ~ Edward Chernenko <edwardspec@gmail.com>MediaWikiDumper 05:45, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

P.S. Of course, Wikia (technically) has a right to offend the community and try to destroy our project (by leaving itself a copy at a high-promoted URL), but I always believed that you're above such a behavior. Hope I wasn't wrong. If there is a place where community doesn't have right to make decisions on its wiki's path, this place isn't Wikia that Angela meant to create (a good cooperative project I always found to be nice for starting a new wiki).

Don't do this and accept our moving please. Look, I know, you had problems with many local communities recently (because of New Look), but it's not worth it to try to keep them this way. The community won't return anyway, so it's just a question of what would you select: support Russian Uncyclopedia (it's a brother-project of Wikipedia, you know) or make it overcome the damage (caused by the lack of redirect) for several years. Please reconsider your position and make the right choice. N extra dollars from ads are not worth making damage to the cooperative project.

Expecting a positive reply,
Absurdopedia community, represented by ~ Edward Chernenko <edwardspec@gmail.com>MediaWikiDumper 05:45, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
