IP adress! Edit

Tell me the ip address of the following users, or ban that address: "TILT on rakas söpöhiiva", "TILT on söpöhiiva", "Rakastan sinua, TILT. Olet hiivani." etc. He has made dozens of users, and is trying to destroy finnish RuneScape Wikia. Help us! And when you ban the ip address, he changes the ip addresses you ban. What can we do? And please hurry!

--Penko 15:24, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

Now his telling every1 one users personal details, he's breaking law, some1 stop this user. We don't know his ip adress, we can't do anything. We just ban the users he make, but it's useless, he's just making more users. AND HE'S CHANGING IP ADRESSES, HOW CAN WE STOP HIM?!

--Penko 15:48, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

If you need to contact staff quickly, it's best to use special:contact. It looks like TILT has already blocked the vandal and Uberfuzzy has blocked the IP address. Angela@fandom (talk) 01:32, December 3, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks but I try to use that from now on but what should we do if he's going to change his ip address? --Penko 14:16, December 3, 2009 (UTC)
You can block him again in the normal way, or contact staff to find out what IP address he's using. If it becomes a big problem, it's possible to lock the site down more. Angela@fandom (talk) 06:20, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Patrolling Edit

Is there any way I can give someone patrolling rights without making them an admin? This would make life a LOT easier for me. I want to get some patrols, but I don't want them to be admins, too.-Neo (T) (C) (Home) 21:27, December 3, 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure - it may be something that people with rollback have if you want to give out that right. Uberfuzzy is the best person to ask about user rights. Angela@fandom (talk) 06:20, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Smallville en español Edit

I am recommending the user known as RoR-El as editor-in-chief of the Smallville en español wikia. I wish to continue as a contributing editor, especially in the area of education applications of the site. However, since RoR-El by his own account is not completely fluent in English, I am also willing to continue as co-editor-in-chief, if you need someone who speaks both languages, although I am not a native speaker of Spanish. Thank you. Krypto profe 83 17:24, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

Ok. Do you need me to do anything? Angela@fandom (talk) 06:20, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Finnish translate Edit

Hi! I translated New editor to my language (finnish) Wikia:International/New_editor_messages/fi Need I do something now? --Ilkea 17:44, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Help me!Edit

Hello Angela, could you help me? I saw that Kyle not react, so I'm trying it with you. I'm administrator on Lost The Journey Wiki and I don't know how you can get that thing from that you're an admnistrator on your wiki. This is the same thing I wanna doing with Lostienumberone, but it didn't work. <- This is what I mean. So people can see that you're an administrator, thanks! Here is the link: http://losthejourney.wikia.com/wiki/Lost_The_Journey:_Administrators.--Station7 19:09, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Please help me with this problem. That would make my day very good!--Station7 21:03, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Have you seen this working on another wiki? If so, you can copy the template to here. Angela@fandom (talk) 06:20, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

HelloEdit

Hello Angela, I'm removed from my own site. This is nonsense, because I haven't put any rubbish. Could you please help me, because I hate that! From the site above you. I'm not happy with that. Could you something with that. Lostienumberone thit that himself. I'm removed for nothing.--Station7 14:47, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

This is not normal. I'm a administrator there and I'm very mad at him. Could you helping me back at the site? Look at the site by admnistrators and you don't see my name. If you know how to help me, please say it oor do anything so I can come back!--Station7 15:12, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Hi, you're still an administrator there. You are able to unblock yourself and speak with him and find out what's going on. --User? 15:27, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

How?--Station7 15:30, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

I already clicked on unwatch and maked it watch, but I can't still make any page or some others.--Station7 15:32, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

I can't talk with him, have you some idea how?--Station7 15:33, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Have you tried editing his talk page? If you tell me which wiki you are talking about, I might be able to help. Angela@fandom (talk) 00:38, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

This is the site:http://losthejourney.wikia.com/wiki/LostTheJourney_Wiki. And this is his talk page:http://losthejourney.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Lostienumberone. He rem0oved, because I would copy things from LOSTman1234 from another wiki, something I would never do in my life. My English is maybe not the best, but people who read it could comment it by me and I have to except that. So he's telling nosense. Thank you Angela. I hope it works ;)--Station7 14:20, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

Since you're an admin there, you can unblock yourself here. Another option is that you could make your own wiki about the same topic using special:createwiki. You can also find lots of other Lost wikis, such as Lostpedia in English, Dutch, and many other languages. See the Lost page for some of the other Lost wikis. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:36, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

Thank you Angela, I'm unblocked. If he's do it again, then you hear it from me.--Station7 11:06, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

Hola. Edit

Hola soy de http://es.pokenoticiases.wikia.com/wiki/Especial:CreatePage I need your help but if you want it agas not only is the menu that if I put in Spanish improvements tournaments etc ...

Answered in his talkpage. Vĕģą-Ďāґķ 18:02, December 11, 2009 (UTC)

A problem I'm trying to solve. Edit

OK, first off, I am not involved with the wiki I'm about to mention in any way, shape, or form. I am simply trying to help.

We have a user on RS Wiki named Parsonsda who has made his own wiki, known as the "Kid VS Kat" wiki (He is a 'crat there, btw). However, one of the RS wiki users (named Stelercus) went over to KVK to try and help out. Guess what? Parsonsda blocked him for absolutely no reason, as well as trolling him on #wikia and arguing with users there that (paraphrased) "he owns the wiki, and doesn't think that anyone who doesn't know things about Kid VS Kat should not be able to edit". Clearly, this is violating the very purpose of Wikia...to have anyone be able to edit a wiki. Here is a list showing what he has done to abuse his powers:

  • He created a sitenotice that pretty much said "if you win a YouTube contest I'm holding, I'll sysop you!" Not very smart, overall.
  • Flaming Stelercus on #wikia, as previously stated. He also would not listen to any reason, and refused to admit that he was in the wrong, mainly saying things like "I'll think about unbanning Steler, but one bad edit and he's GONE (Stelercus, in fact, was simply trying to help the wiki, and did NOT vandalize at all, making Parson's actions into power abuse because he didn't like Steler to begin with)
  • Placing several incorrect userboxes on his userpage, including one claiming that he was Wikia staff. Steler tried to remove these, but that was also a "contributing factor" to his unjust block.
  • Finally, Steler tried to add a "Christmas theme" to the wiki, but that was also a "reason" for his block.

Overall, Parsonsda needs to have all of his rights removed (even rollback, since he'll likely try to rollback good edits that Steler makes). I would like to request that this happens soon, since we have evidence from his adminship request on RS Wiki that he's just power-hungry. I will keep Stelercus informed about your decision. Thank you! Stinkowing 16:08, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

If you need it, I have a copy of the chat log from the #Wikia argument, I can send to you if you need it. Lcawte1Talk - My Wikia's list - New Wiki Watchlist 16:57, December 12, 2009 (UTC)
If it's just on this new wiki that he's doing it, it may be best to just ignore him as he's not hurting anyone by doing that there. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:39, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

add interwiki link to zh.uncyclopedia.wikia.com Edit

Dear Angela, Hoped sincerely you can give the assistance to link these two websites, respectively is;

"nn"=http://ikkjepedia.wikia.com/

"gl"=http://desgalipedia.org/wiki/Portada

Because this request had already communicated the very long time, had not been solved, hoped that this time can give the assistance.

Sorry, my English ability is not very good, hoped that cannot cause your understanding meaning difficulty.--黑底屍☎找我☎) 19:46, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

ikkjepedia, gl.uncyclopedia.wikia.com, and zh.uncyclopedia are linked. As gl is already used for Desgalipedia on Wikia, the external site will not be linked. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:45, December 12, 2009 (UTC)
The question is gl.uncyclopedia.wikia.com can only be the website which abandons, and nobody is responsible to manage also nobody activity, although is Wikia decides the policy, but cannot force us to do invalid and not coordinated connection.
In addition the "nn" connection had also not processed, even if we already agreed that does not have any processing movement the connection to http://ikkjepedia.wikia.com/.
Whether please can and as fast as possible effective solves our request?--黑底屍☎找我☎) 15:04, December 13, 2009 (UTC)
Please can you use special:contact for this so all of these requests can be kept together? Angela@fandom (talk) 00:51, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, I do not understand your meaning? I only am pure proposed that the system links the aid request, whether can the more detailed explanation special:contact function?--黑底屍☎找我☎) 04:55, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
Special:Contact is a form where you can contact staff. It helps to answer your questions as all of the discussion is then in a single place instead of many different requests on different wikis about the same problem. Angela@fandom (talk) 05:25, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
But my request just is the very simple content, only needs to contact the technician to assist to adjust links, moreover my question also not necessarily other websites can meet. Therefore please defer to the request to assist to solve.--黑底屍☎找我☎) 15:07, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
The last time this happened, your request was very controversial and had to be reverted. To prevent this happening again, the request must be properly tracked by you only requesting it via special:contact. Angela@fandom (talk) 21:10, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
I cannot understand the question the dispute in? what difficulty does "nn" connect http://ikkjepedia.wikia.com/ to have? Moreover http://ikkjepedia.wikia.com/ aspect also approved that does with http://zh.uncyclopedia.wikia.com bidirectional links.
In addition the Wikia http://gl.uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Desgalipedia now is nobody activity abandons the website, why can't the connection to have actually "gl" the content, and some person of editor's http://desgalipedia.org/wiki/Portada?
To use special:contact to respond that my request, Wikia will help to solve the problem? Previous time had already tried, the result is ignored.--黑底屍☎找我☎) 10:33, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

PasswordEdit

A friend of my is trying to make an account. However it doesn't work for him. He copy's his password twice, but it don't work. So what has he to do?--Station7 13:54, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

I suggest checking the terms of use. If he is allowed an account and can not create one, then he should send details of what happens to Wikia staff. Angela@fandom (talk) 00:51, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Finnish translation Edit

Hi I translated followings pages to finnish

--Ilkea 14:50, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll transfer those to the messaging wiki. Angela@fandom (talk) 00:51, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
No problem. I would like to ask when these features come available to use in Finnish wikia's? --Ilkea 13:51, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
It's possible it won't happen until Jan 6th, 2010 because no more code releases are planned for this year. Angela@fandom (talk) 21:10, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Norwegian Uncyclopedia design-fix Edit

Hi, Angela! I tried on Jimbo, but he wasn't a Wikia Staff, if I not misunderstood. He said that I should contact Sannse, Angela, or someone other on the commmunity team. I'm asking about we now can change the skin on Ikkjepedia to look like all other Uncyclopedias on Wikia - monobook! I want to have the same skin as the new created http://www.nn.media-uncyc.wikia.com. I don't want that the copy of Ikkjepedia, ikkjepedia.org which is on a Carlb server,shall be a hit. Mr. Floyd 16:52, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Users can select monobook in their own preferences, but it's no longer available as a default. The current skin on Ikkjepedia is the closest it can look to monobook. Note that Wikipedia itself will not be on monobook for much longer, so there's no advantage to switching to that. Angela@fandom (talk) 21:10, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
When monobook disepears on WP, what shall the new WP be then? When will it then happen? I think you're only fooling. And now you gotta change the skin here. Mr. Floyd 21:49, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

AbuseFilter and TitleBlacklist Edit

Hello! Please install http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:AbuseFilter and http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:TitleBlacklist to http://ru.politic.wikia.com for prevent the regular vandal attacks. Thank you! --Толкач 22:02, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

AbuseFilter is still being tested and isn't ready for use on Wikia yet. I think the title blacklist is already installed as MediaWiki:Blacklist title list is used. If you need any help with that, Uberfuzzy is the best person to ask, or you can send a message via special:contact. Angela@fandom (talk) 22:22, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Users Lostienumberone and AwesomelostEdit

Hello Angela, here am I again. User Lostienumberone and Awesomelost form an conspiracy to me, they think that I steal stories, what is not true. So Angela could you talk with them. Awesomelost blocked me this time. Lostienumberone the first time.

On the Lost site they said that they work together, later Lostienumberone and Awesomelost were deleted because they are vandalism people. So could you make a new unblock, so I could going further. Thanks! I'm not the one who lies, they are!--Station7 15:03, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

This is the site:http://losthejourney.wikia.com/wiki/LostTheJourney_Wiki. And this is his talk page:http://losthejourney.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Lostienumberone. --Station7 15:05, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

This is Awesomelost's talk page!http://losthejourney.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Awesomelost.--Station7 15:07, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

How could I block someone?--Station7 15:56, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

They blcked me again in 2 days. :( --Station7 23:13, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

As you're an admin, you can unblock yourself, so there's little point in them doing that. Have you thought about making a new wiki instead of being involved in the arguments on that one? Angela@fandom (talk) 23:56, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

I have been start with a new wikia. 3 guys already said to me that I stole things. Could you search for me on a wikia lost fanon? Someone is lying and it's not me.--Station7 18:42, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

Adding ads Edit

If user adds advertisements or links to another pages, like [1] or [2], in pages, is it against the rules of wikia. What about user pages or talk pages. Where can users add ads or links if they want? (I hope you understand what I mean)

--Penko 15:59, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

I'm not staff or anything, but the first one is fine, and the second one is ok, depending on where its placed. Lcawte1Talk - My Wikia's list - New Wiki Watchlist 17:19, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
Each wiki can have it's own policy on which links are allowed. Links to World of Warcraft on a wiki about that game are probably fine, but if they're affiliate links, then maybe not. Putting up links to irrelevant websites just for the purposes of promoting the site would usually be seen as spam. Angela@fandom (talk) 02:20, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Bot Edit

Could you aprove my bot: User:LSbot?

--LeinardoSmith talk 34 edits!!!@WikiMarkupWiki 01:49, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Hello. Bot flags are usually set per-wiki. Which wiki did you want this set for? Angela@fandom (talk) 02:17, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

The Wiki Markup Wiki. :) --LeinardoSmith talk 34 edits!!!@WikiMarkupWiki 07:31, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

LSbot is now flagged as a bot on wikimarkup.wikia.com. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:24, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Ok thanks! :) --LeinardoSmith talk 34 edits!!!@WikiMarkupWiki 23:39, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Club Penguin Fanon Wiki Edit

On the Club Penguin Fanon Wiki a user called NotAnEditor got banned yesterday because a long time ago, on a different wiki, he had a disagreement with one of the CPFW admins. They say he is ruining the site and stuff like that, however if you check on his recent edits you will find he has done nothing of the sort. I am actually banned on that wiki too because I said one of the admins "seemed to have power over all the others" however, that is a different matter. I still veiw the wiki often and yesterday, on the shoutbox one of the admins (Happyface414) actually admitted he and some of the others were abusing power. I quote: "We are abusing our powers, so what?". Prior to that they had claimed I was spamming them on a different wiki. In actual fact I sent a message to one of them (TurtleShroom) about a different event. He did not reply, so I sent 2 more. Then he claimed it was spamming, so I stopped but they continued to say I was a spammer and deserved all I had gotten. Please do something as they are completly disobeying the rules they themselves invented and making the site an unhappy place. They then blame it on NotAnEditor (who they sometimes refer to as "AG" because of his previous account, Agentgenius) and occasionally me.

Thanks for your time.

Interlinks for Desgalipedia.org Edit

Hello again my dear Angela. Well the problem that I report is as follows: Carlb created a partition for Desgalipedia as you can see here: the http://desgalipedia.org/wiki/Portada Desgalipedia is hosted on 2 servers here at Wikia and the server Carlb. Well I do not disagree that either server can resolve the problems. But despite the Desgalipedia consigui do interlinks with all Uncys, the Wikia as Inciclopedia, Uncyclopedia, and other Nonciclopedia not interconnect with the Desgalipedia.org. And I would like that detail was resolved and if possible if the 2 servers can join without partition in favor of any of the servers.

Once again, thank you

Regards Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie preppiedits 20:20, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

Please can you send a message to special:contact about that? This sort of problem can not be dealt with via talk page messages. Angela@fandom (talk) 00:38, December 21, 2009 (UTC)


Help! Edit

Could you put my wikis on wikia? Please! Because nobody ever visits them! Thanks, --Bigman602 03:31, December 21, 2009 (UTC)Bigman602!

Yes - please can you send me links to them? Angela@fandom (talk) 03:33, December 21, 2009 (UTC)

They are Penguins of Madagasgar & Avatar The Last Airbender! Thanks, --Bigman602 15:56, December 21, 2009 (UTC)Bigman602!

I thought you meant you wanted to move a wiki to Wikia. Can you explain what you mean by "put my wikis on wikia" please? Do you mean spotlights? Angela@fandom (talk) 21:04, December 21, 2009 (UTC)

Ya. I did mean the spotlights. When you said move your wiki to wikia I ment the spotlights. Thanks, --Bigman602 01:28, December 22, 2009 (UTC)Bigman602!

Ok, well check out the rules for spotlights on that page and then just add your request when you're ready. Angela@fandom (talk) 01:32, December 22, 2009 (UTC)`

Wikia iPhone Version Edit

Hi Angela, will there be a Wikia version for an iPhone or Blackberry? I have an iPod Touch, and whenever I enter a wiki, it is a mess, no background, words everywhere, etc. I think that you should do a version for an iPhone, as I'am not the only person with that problem, I guess. --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 03:36, December 21, 2009 (UTC)

Yes, there is a mobile skin in use now and plans to improve that next year. See the chick skin. Angela@fandom (talk) 03:40, December 21, 2009 (UTC)
There's also the useskin=wikiaphone version. Angela@fandom (talk) 00:34, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

New Messages Edit

Hi Angela,

Everytime I look on Wikia, it says I have new messages, but when I look, I don't have any. Can you help me to get rid of this.

Greetings

--Croon 00:13, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

Sorry about this - it is a known bug for Dutch users. It might go away if you log out and then log in again. We hope to fix it this week. Angela@fandom (talk) 00:19, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

User TroubleEdit

Dear Angela,

On the Sonic wiki there is a former admin named Launchballer who has created a template to use to intentionally crash other people's computers. This, in my opinion, is unethical. I request that he be banned wiki wide due to the fact that the beaurecrats on the wiki have given him many chances to take down the template and he did not respond to them.

Thank you,

The Chosen One Of Fire

Has the template been deleted now? He can be blocked sitewide if he does similar things on other wikis. Do you know if that has happened? If not, a block just on the sonic wiki should be enough - it may be worth extending the length of the block as this sort of thing is totally unacceptable. Angela@fandom (talk) 01:52, December 22, 2009 (UTC)
The template was directly aimed at vandals, so that whenever they try and load a page the window won't show and their browser will stop responding.--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 20:36, December 22, 2009 (UTC)
That is unacceptable. If a vandal is a problem, they get blocked from editing, taking measures to harm their browser or computer is not a solution. --User? 21:42, December 23, 2009 (UTC)
It's to stop them from editing again. If I cannot access their IP address and rangeblock them, if they use too many ranges or are too big (/16 range blocks 65,536 users in one blow) I'll have to find other ways in order avoid excessive collateral damage.--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 09:46, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

Editthis.info Edit

Perhaps you should apologize. Editthis.info isn't dead anymore. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 04:08, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

Some of their wikis have actually not come back up, but I've sent an email to Rob about it. There's nothing to take down - I think he's just talking about the npfit wiki which was already deleted after a demo wiki was set up for the owner of it to review. Angela@fandom (talk) 12:52, December 22, 2009 (UTC)
Alright. Thanks. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 16:08, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

Chinese website group needs a Chinese contact person Edit

Leaves job after KJ, Chinese website group becomes to the Wikia contact demand very difficult. Although has probationer Ziyi, but he very busy is unable to contact promptly frequently, causes some technical demand nobody to be possible to instruct perhaps assists to contact processing.

Whether Wikia can give up Chinese website group?--黑底屍☎找我☎) 07:30, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

If there is another Chinese user that speaks English, I'd be happy for them to join Wikia as an intern. Do you know anyone that wants to do that? Angela@fandom (talk) 12:54, December 22, 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry. I did not know that which familiar English friend has, but User:Leeyc0 he is zh-hk Uncyclopedia duty assists our User, moreover his work is very busy is unable to have the unnecessary time to assist the transmit message.

Joeyaa is always giving me mean comments and blocked me for sockpuppetry, just because I wasn't logged in! Omnibender is always giving me threats and blocked me for vandalism, just because I edited a page he loved! The 888th Avatar blocked 2 pages just because he didn't want me editing them! Now you see they all hate me! They all blocked, because they hate me except The 888th, he blocked 2 pages because he hates me! I'm getting real aggervated, annoyed, and irritated! I would really appreciate I if you would bann or block these 3. Thanks, --Bigman602 14:26, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

No, please stop asking that. Those are trusted users and they're doing nothing wrong. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:08, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

Trying to Make a Wiki Edit

Hello, Administrator Angela, I am Youngla0450 and I got a problem. I went to "Create a wiki", filled out the information, and it was supposed to create the wiki, but it said "Process not completed, error". I have tried about four times and the same message popped up every time. What do I do? I really want to create my own wiki. --Larry Young 19:06, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

I've replied on User talk:Youngla0450. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:08, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

I have submitted the message for help to build the wiki and included the ideas you told me to include. Please respond to this and that message. --Larry Young 23:36, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

The Hater in Wikia 00:23, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Making sure: Smiddle, Lario, Superluigi821, YellowYoshi398, Poff, Family guy freak 2, Mcfan2, PichuKirby, HannahTheSurvivor, Konnichiwa, 1929crash, Yoshikoopa, DarkenMalleo111, Wikia, LegoPerson96, Lacw, and Isa TKM Project all get demoted from everything. Tsepelcory, Javilus, Registeel999, and maybe MasterVir lose crat status but keep sysop.

The Hater in Wikia 00:28, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

I've sent this using special:contact for you as huge requests like this can not be dealt with properly on user talk pages. Angela@fandom (talk) 00:36, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Is there... Edit

Some kind of way to make text that admins can see but regular users can't? So a way for admins to talk without the notice of regular users about admin-related stuff? -W112 (Talk)

You can't do that on the wiki, but you could make a private mailing list for admins using a tool such as Google Groups. Angela@fandom (talk) 02:07, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

User:Mr. Floyd Edit

UnMario demotions Edit

so when the demotions will start ? The Hater in Wikia 03:13, December 23, 2009 (UTC) I just finished deleting endless useless pages a 'crat made -________-' The Hater in Wikia 03:13, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Pl Conlang Edit

Im terribly sorry to bother you, but it seems that on the Polish Conlanger Wiki (http://pl.conlang.wikia.com) the only bureaucrat does not respond. I asked for the sysop and perhaps bureaucrat on this wiki for several reasons, beginning from greater involvment in wiki than in our forum (I had a lot of ideas that came true: numerating conlangs, conworlds, books, quotes, featured articles and more) ending with the fact that I was a root admin of the previous Conlanger Wiki server. Other users agreed on that. If you still don't trust me, just give bureaucrat to our active sysop Paweł Ciupak. Thank you. RWHÔ 08:07, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Deletions Edit

How do I change a deletion reason ? The Hater in Wikia 14:41, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

If you mean an already deleted page, you can't. Unless you restore the page, and then delete it again. If you mean change the "default" reasons used to delete a page, you'd need to edit MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown on your wiki. --User? 14:42, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Username Change Edit

Hi Angela, is there a way that I can change my username without deleting my contributions? --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 18:42, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

No, sorry. Usernames aren't changed on Wikia due to the shared user database. --User? 18:43, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

the "gif" image display is unusual Edit

Uploads gif in the Wikia website the image to be unable the normal demonstration, please look at the example;

File:Imagesparis2iz.gif

This is originally the size.

[[File:Imagesparis2iz.gif|thumb|none|200px|This is the process has revised the size.]] How should such unusual circumstance solve?--黑底屍☎找我☎) 06:06, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

I thought this was a bug, but it's not. The image is animated, so the thumbnail will only show one frame of that animation. The first frame lasts a long time and then changes and shows other images including the one you see in the thumbnail. Automatic thumbnailing does not usually work for animations on Wikia. Angela@fandom (talk) 07:26, December 24, 2009 (UTC)
But, before October uploads the picture is normal, after November started to be unusual, whether to invite the technical personnel checkout system. Because zh.uncyclopedia.wikia.com needs to use dynamic gif frequently image Kuso. --黑底屍☎找我☎) 08:11, December 24, 2009 (UTC)
Please look that this website page also has a dynamic gif image, when I attempt changes this image the size, the image will occur exceptionally, therefore please assist to deal with this issue.--黑底屍☎找我☎) 08:43, December 24, 2009 (UTC)
In late October it was coded so that it only shows the first frame when assigned dimensions. See http://trac.wikia-code.com/changeset/14382 It was obviously done to stop errors from occurring. Joey (talk) 10:05, December 24, 2009 (UTC)
Ask whether to have the means breaching of obstacles? Because the present hypothesis is not convenient, because Uncyclopedia is the lively Kuso website, and has half Uncyclopedia is uses Wikia the server. Therefore hoped that Wikia can understand Uncyclopedia the nature and the demand, assist the debug with every effort. --黑底屍☎找我☎) 11:00, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

I thought that to Wikia proposed the question demand and the support, are the excuses which frequently only then explained that but not solves the question means.

Moreover the communication way is not convenient, is unable the question and the demand by the correct complete way expression. --黑底屍☎找我☎) 08:34, December 26, 2009 (UTC)

Main Page Transparency Edit

Hi Angela, I wanted to know if there's a way that the main page is completely transaprent. In my wiki (http://james-camerons-avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Avatar_Wiki) there's a starfield background, but I would like it to have no color, so it can show all the starfield. Right now it is transparent, but I want it completely transparent. Is there a way to do that? --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 16:04, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure. Uberfuzzy is a better person to ask about CSS issues, or you can send a message using special:contact for faster help. Angela@fandom (talk) 10:03, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Mass Effect Wiki Edit

Hi! I am an administrator of the Russian Mass Effect Wiki. Can you grant a bot flag to my bot — ZSbot? --ZooL SmoK 07:10, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Note Edit

I have responded to what you requested: the name of the wiki I want to create, it's category, sub-topic, and such. However, I have waited and I have no response. Can you please, as soon as your able (I live in America, so big diffrences in time) read my message (from larryyoung96@yahoo.com) and then e-mail me when the wiki is set up and give me a link, please. --Brenda Young 19:59, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Abuse of Administrator Power: Halo Legends Edit

Dear Angela,

Sorry if this is not the proper place for me to discuss this but it appears I've been put under an unfair block from an administrator of Halo Legends. I have not perform any kind of hostile or ridiculous behaviour in the wiki and I've only created my first article, yet I've been placed into a ban of 1337 years without any warning or reasoning.

Please check the following:

Cheers and have a happy Christmas.(7alk) 23:25, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Could you please inspect the administrators in Halo Legends? Most, if not all, of them abused their rights purely for fun/biased opinion based on the Block Log.(7alk) 23:56, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
Sometimes it's easier to start a new wiki instead of dealing with that, but if you'd like some advice, I recommend that you send details of the dispute using special:contact. Angela@fandom (talk) 06:54, December 26, 2009 (UTC)

UnMarioWiki problems with a user Edit

I checked the block log and Poff is abuseing his powers. Please desysop him. --68.197.16.37 23:27, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

There have been various reports of problems on that wiki so please send details using special:contact so the reports can be kept together in one place. It makes it easier for the person dealing with it to see the full extent of the problem that way. Angela@fandom (talk) 06:56, December 26, 2009 (UTC)


Quantcast Edit

Hi Angela, do you use Quantcast.com to see how many people enter to Wikia? --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 18:19, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Yes, Quantcast is a good way to see how many visitors a wiki has. Angela@fandom (talk) 02:10, December 30, 2009 (UTC)
So this means that my wiki has 163.3 thousand visitors monthly worldwide?! --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 02:17, December 30, 2009 (UTC)
Yes, and people are making multiple visits, so the number of pageviews is even higher. The wiki is growing amazingly fast! Angela@fandom (talk) 02:20, December 30, 2009 (UTC)
Wow, thanks :) --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 02:25, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

Can you help me? I'd like to adopt.... Edit

I'm Roxy13, from the Winx Club Wiki. I'm a very frequent user on this wiki, and I would like to adopt it, because our founder is, well, no where to be found! If you can help me, please do. We need a buereaucrat badly, and I would like to be one. Dad, I'm a Fairy! Roxy13 22:14, December 30, 2009 (UTC)Roxy13

Please see Wikia:Adoption requests. Angela@fandom (talk) 00:44, December 31, 2009 (UTC)

Name Edit

Could I please have my name changed? There's a user by the name of meep meep who thinks I stole his name. I didn't know he existed, so I want my name changed. So I'd like it changed to...Andy920. Thanks!Meepers 02:09, December 31, 2009 (UTC)

No, sorry. Usernames aren't changed on Wikia due to the shared user database. --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 02:11, December 31, 2009 (UTC)
They think I'm trying to steal a user's identity, though. Is there really nothing that can be done?Meepers 02:38, December 31, 2009 (UTC)
You can make a new account and use that instead. You can add a note to your old userpage to tell people that you have changed name and you could add a note there explaining that meep meep is someone else. Angela@fandom (talk) 05:02, December 31, 2009 (UTC)

Soundfiles Edit

It it possible to upload sound files on wikia? Clyde1998 (talkcontribs)

Yes it is possible. You need to convert your sound files to .ogg and then upload them at Special:Upload. Vĕģą-Ďāґķ 17:39, December 31, 2009 (UTC)

Interwiki transclusion? Edit

Is it possible to add some kind of link to [3] that it's exactly same page as [4], and if it is possible, could you tell me. The information in this page updates almost every day, and there are many this kind of pages, so we really need this.

--Penko 14:11, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

If both wikis have this feature enabled, then you use [[en:"article"]] or [[fi:"article"]]. If not, please request it here. Vĕģą-Ďāґķ 17:06, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
If i do that, it only makes language links, I mean like this: [5], but I don't know what I should write to this page [6], to make it be exactly same as this page [7]. Do you know what I mean? --Penko 17:26, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
You want to turn on scary transclusions from runescape.wikia so that any wiki can decide to transclude any page from that wiki. You should be warned though that the cache from this feature is extremely bad (a change to the exchange page on runescape.wikia could take a week to show on your wiki,) so it'd probably even be better if you just used a bot instead to relay this type of data. I haven't heard of many places where this is enabled, and getting it enabled for something minor isn't specifically likely (or easy.) Regardless, your best answer can be found via Special:Contact, so please ask via that, but I would recommend you use a bot to do what you want instead. Good luck! Joey (talk) 18:05, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
It would be hard to use bot, when there's 3 wikias which needs those pages, but thanks anyway. --Penko 18:08, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
Linking to one version instead of duplicating would be best. "Scary transclusions" were not designed for this. You also lower the google page rank if you duplicate the content rather than having all 3 wikis pointing to a single version of the page. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:52, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Bug on Special:Mostvisitedpages Edit

I have found a bug on Special:Mostvisitedpages. When we write a word, this page shows the pages with the word in their title (for instance, here). But it doesn't work with special characters like "é" (for example, here) whereas there are pages with the special character in the title (here). This bug always occurs. I already reported this bug here. Ftiercel 18:42, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

I've passed this bug report onto the engineers. Sending bugs to special:contact is best to ensure they see them. Angela@fandom (talk) 01:07, January 4, 2010 (UTC)
OK, thanks. Ftiercel 18:41, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

2 questionsEdit

  • 1.How do you change the color of your Wikia (as administrator)?
  • 2.How do you change the background of your Wikia (as administrator)?

Edit

Hi Angela. Is it possible to have a logo like a globe with puzzel pieces like wikipedia's? I don't remember where I saw that you eliminated one of those logos, as they are asking here to make one. I think it's a great idea, but can we do it? --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 22:23, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

The Wikipedia logo is copyrighted and trademarked. Wikia is not part of Wikimedia, so we are not legally allowed to use their logo or derivatives of their logo as part of Wikia logos. Angela@fandom (talk) 22:26, January 4, 2010 (UTC)
Is the Uncyclopedia part of Wikimedia? --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 02:19, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
No, Uncyclopedia is hosted by Wikia which is not part of Wikimedia. Angela@fandom (talk) 02:20, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
Uh... so if you're hosted by Wikia, you can make that logo? That's pretty confusing. -Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 02:40, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
Uncyclopedia is a parody of Wikipedia, so it's likely that their logo use could be defended as fair use. It's also different enough that Uncyclopedia would not be confused for Wikipedia which could mean a trademark violation. The intention is people understand that Uncyclopedia's potato logo is a joke. The same does not apply to other wikis. Angela@fandom (talk) 03:06, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

UnMarioEdit

<Messages removed>

Please stop with the vandalism games. Leaving messages here is not helping. If you need staff help, you can use special:contact but not just for demanding on daily basis that various people be de-adminned. Note that if you are vandalising, sockpuppeting, and/or holding multiple admin accounts, it's really best you don't complain about others doing the same. Angela@fandom (talk) 03:43, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Help Please, maa'm Edit

Maa'm, the Pierlot user, the same who got User Magnus banned is now going to try to get me banned from wikination for supposed "sockpuppetry", just because I do not agree with him! Regliarium, the administrator on that wiki, adviced him to or at least to try. Please talk to Pierlot. --Brenda Young 15:36, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Don't you get bored of this problem? I see messages like this all around the Wikia Community Team. Just send a message to Special:Contact. --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 16:09, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

There is only one way to solve this problem. It is to block Pierlot. He has caused nothing but trouble. His falsely accusing of people he dislikes and having them banned by moderators of local admins has to stop. How? By giving Pierlot the crosswikia block he deserves. Why don't you people see it? The root of the Problem lies with PIERLOT... Dr. Magnus 20:26, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

You actually don't get bored... --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 21:22, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
It's best to work on a different wiki instead of continuing these arguments on Wikination. Getting staff involved does not help in these sorts of situations. Angela@fandom (talk) 01:06, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

Most visited pages Edit

Hi, I was disappointed when I saw that the most visited pages list doesn't exist anymore. Why is it so?  Nico  17:45, January 7, 2010 (UTC)

See Special:Top/most_visited. Dancing Penguin (Talk!) (Contribs) (Edits) 18:04, January 7, 2010 (UTC)
Unfortunately, we can't see all the pages and the number of visits with that. Thanks anyway!  Nico  18:12, January 7, 2010 (UTC)
The data on that page was incredibly inaccurate so it was removed to avoid confusion. Maybe in future we will find a better way of extracting data on visitors per page, but that isn't possible right now. Angela@fandom (talk) 22:00, January 7, 2010 (UTC)
OK, thanks!  Nico  22:46, January 7, 2010 (UTC)


Azusanity Edit

That wiki has been attacked by trolls, l rolled back the edits he made, and banned them for one year, could you hide for good the edits that troll made, his name is Oceanus99 and the IP address that also attacked is 66.90.73.246.--Daipenmon 14:17, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

I need help! Edit

Hey Angela, I need administrators, bureaucrats, and more! My wikis are going down the toilet. There are Avatar The Last Airbender (www.avatar-thelastairbender.wikia.com) & Penguins of Madagasgar (www.penguinsofmadness.wikia.com). Thanks, --173.80.254.13 20:26, January 8, 2010 (UTC) (a.k.a. Bigman602)

I'm not critizicing, but they are not successful because there is already another wiki about Avatar, and Penguins of Madagascar isn't a very famous show among teens and adults, that are most of the users and visitors on Wikia. --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 01:39, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
Anyway, if you wanna get more traffic from Google, here are a couple of tips to help your wiki improve its Google search rank. These tips are sure to help send more traffic your way and will increase the visibility of your wiki to the rest of the world.
  • The description and pagetitles for your wiki are crucial to favorable placement.
  • Google recommends no more that 100 links on your main page for better indexing.
  • The most relevant content for your topic should link from the main page.
Hope it helped. --Shadow Na'vi Talk My Workload 01:45, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

Disable my account Edit

Yes, I know, strange request. I can explain. I'm dropping the "Daedryon" moniker for good, and I'm trying to leave a minimal trace of my existence on the internet. So could you do me a big favour and disable my account (which I believe will delete all userpages on any Wikia's that I'm a member of)? Thanks Angela!
λ
T 15:48, January 12, 2010 (UTC)
Disabling doesn't do this, and accounts aren't disabled on request. The only thing disabling does is preventing someone from logging into an account. --User? 15:53, January 12, 2010 (UTC)
.....So? Do that. I don't care. I've already went to the few Wikia's I have userpages on, and labelled them for deletion using the appropriate templates per Wikia. Now, I'd like my account to be deleted/disabled/whatever will basically just delete it for good to prevent certain people from hacking it.
λ
T 15:55, January 12, 2010 (UTC)
Again, accounts aren't disabled on request, sorry. You can do this yourself by simply erasing the email and not paying attention when typing in a new password (it's literally the same thing that disabling does). --User? 16:22, January 12, 2010 (UTC)
If you want someone else to scramble your password for you, please use special:contact but this is irreversible and does not affect any edits you've made or any user pages you have. Angela@fandom (talk) 21:13, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

Yin Yang Yo! fanon wikia Edit

Hello. i'd like to know how you could post/advertise the above wikia (This wikia)? i'd appreaceate it! Yina 00:19, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

Promotion has some tips on how you can promote it. Once you've added some more content, you can also ask for a spotlight which will help to bring even more people to your wiki. Angela@fandom (talk) 00:21, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

2 things Edit

Hey Angela. 2 things I wanted to say. Don't you think it is better to change it back to when wikis were requested and permitted by staff rather than how it is now when any user may create any wiki. Wikia is filled with inappropriate wikis, duplicates and many other wastes of space. I know we want to seem inviting to new users by allowing them to create their own wiki. And I realise Wikia wants to have the reputation of being the largest Wiki hosting website, but I believe "these wikis" are starting to be derogatory upon the quality and reputation of all wikis.

On another note, I wish to help out in other ways beyond the normal "editing your home wiki" which I've been doing since April 07. Do you have any ideas about additional ways I can "contribute", apart from the normal and usual?

Please reply on my talk page so I am alerted of your reply. Thanks! Chicken7 >talk 13:43, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Chicken7, if you want to report an inappropriate wiki (ones that violate the Wikia:Terms of use or Wikia:Creation policy) you can do so here and Wikia will review them. :) Note only the ones that violate the aforementioned policies, duplicate wikis are allowed but not encouraged. --User? 14:48, January 16, 2010 (UTC)
I'm aware of the report process, but couldn't find the link so thanks for that. But still, I don't think Wikians want to spend their entire day checking for violations. It is more something that you'd report if you see. Because of that, I am sure heaps of users have taken advantage of the easy non-checked process of making a wiki, unless there is some form of filter which blocks certain words or something, but even then, that truly doesn't do enough. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 16:26, January 16, 2010 (UTC)
Don't worry about #1, I found Forum:New wikis which voices our concerns and the counter-argument. But please answer #2 if you get some time ;) Chicken7 >talk 13:18, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
Some ways to contribute include helping people making logos, answering questions, responding on forums, developing a wiki about websites, and fighting spam. You could ask on the forums for other ideas. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:31, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the tips. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 02:20, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

Call of Duty Wiki Edit

Hi Angela! I would like to change the URL direction of my wiki to es.callofduty.wikia.com . I don't know if it's possible because that direction already exist. You can try to merge both wikis too. Tell me something on my talk page. PD: Can you setup the interwiki links of CSI and Uncharted Wikis here? --sandan 19:23, January 17, 2010 (UTC)

Moved from your archive, he accidentialy edited it there. Mark (Talk) • (Contribs) 19:30, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
That's done. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:37, January 17, 2010 (UTC)

Template/Wikia Adoptions/User:Joeyaa Edit

Hey Angela, I need help and I think you're the best person since you're the co-creator of Wikia. I want to know how to make a template. I also want to know what wikis are inactive. I also have a problem on Avatar Wiki with User:Joeyaa. He keeps blocking me constantly and making up reasons. I hope you help me. Thanks, 173.80.254.13 00:29, January 18, 2010 (UTC) (a.k.a. Bigman602)

There's help on templates at help:template and you can also contact staff or ask on the forums if you have a specific question about them. One easy way to get started with templates is to copy one from another Wikia site and adapt it for your own wiki. There's no list of inactive wikis because a wiki can easily go from being inactive to active even without someone official adopting it. With regards to your block, you need to understand that sockpuppeting is not allowed on most wikis, so using extra accounts like Billbob706 and Mr.101 is not acceptable. Angela@fandom (talk) 01:39, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

Requesting a wikia deletionEdit

Hello Angela. This wiki is a simple load of spam. The pages (all 5 of them) are stupid and pointless, with one of them titles "Penis". Please do something about it. There's already a RuneScape wiki. Thanks. --CallofDuty4 21:44, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

I've deleted the pages, but it's ok to have more than 1 wiki on a topic. Judging from the name of the wiki, they want to focus just on private servers rather than being a general RuneScape site. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:08, January 18, 2010 (UTC)
No such thing as a RuneScape private server. Chicken7 >talk 07:34, January 19, 2010 (UTC)


Yes there is. Moparscape, buddy. 199.212.27.249 14:43, January 19, 2010 (UTC)

Hello Edit

I dont see why some people think wikis are a great place for flaming, trolling and spamming. On UnMarioWiki, there is a loser named "Poff" who kept up with endless spamming. We had to fight him countless times just to get him off our backs. Then he would return again. Anyways, I dot know if hes struck again, but could you, like, disable all the spamming acocounts. Our comminity cant stop him, so I was wondering if you could. Thanks. -LostGod2000. Never mind! I got rid of him. UGHHH......

Images Edit

Recently I worked in the maintenance of images. Categorizing and putting {{i}} It's a good job. Do not you think? Andres bonilla 196 23:59, January 20, 2010 (UTC)

Wikiresponses in spanish Edit

Hello, Angela, I want to be a bureaucrat and administrator of Wikiresponses in Spanish that's my specialty. As there are many poorly written errors to move and delete items, as current administrators sometimes is active.--Csuarezllosa (Em@il) 01:28, January 25, 2010 (UTC)

Dear Ms A.Beasley Edit

I was beauro of ko.wikia. New beauro deleted almost all of articles. I want to backup those to ko.history.wikia. Is it possible? I am looking forward to you answer.

                        Sincerely yours,
                        MayJune Kaneshiro.
Have you tried talking to Grace C. Infinity‎ to see why those are being deleted? Angela@fandom (talk) 02:27, January 25, 2010 (UTC)
She hasnt noticed anything.

Fanon Section Edit

Hi Angela, I have a question about fanon. The Avatar Wiki has a fanon section, and I wanted to do something like that to my wiki. But apparently, they have another skin for the fanon... how do you do that? Is there any specific help to create a fanon section? If you could answer me, it'll be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 19:41, January 25, 2010 (UTC)

They have a separate namespace for fanon content (which you an request via special:contact) and then they've added MediaWiki:Fanonskin.css to style that namespace. Angela@fandom (talk) 00:25, January 26, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. i've sent a message to Special:Contact... and I've never used it before, so how long do I have to wait? They'll get me back at my email or talk page? --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 03:47, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

Can you regexblock Chris McLean? It is a sockpuppet of the hater of this wikia. 68.197.16.37 00:59, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

Query Edit

In response to your query: "Hi Knut. Are you still active on this wiki? Are you interested in moving the site to Wikia? Please leave me a message here if you'd like to talk about this."

Yes, please. :) 216.160.55.201 10:46, January 28, 2010 (UTC)


Actually, that depends...will I be able to have my own wiki here? 216.160.55.201 10:53, January 28, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, you can have you own wiki and I can transfer all of the content from your old wiki to it. Someone has already registered the username Knut at Wikia, so if that's not you, you'll need to make a new account. Please tell me your new username if you can't log in as Knut and then I'll get the new wiki ready. Angela@fandom (talk) 21:00, January 28, 2010 (UTC)

Not sure where to put this, but... Edit

May I request an IRC Channel for the Un Club Penguin Wiki? - Wompus78 11:37, January 30, 2010 (UTC)

Feel free to register it on Freenode, read the Freenode Policy on creating a channel. Make sure that your channel starts with wikia-your channel name here. After that, you can request via Special:Contact that your channel be in the webchat list of Wikia. Vĕģą-Ďāґķ 18:01, January 30, 2010 (UTC)

Problem Edit

Hi Angela, we have a problem in my wiki. In the home page, when someone edits on a blog, it appears User blog comment:Mithdraz/Bueaty of Pandora and Avatar/Anon2154-20100130012812, very very large! Is that something related to the Wikia Staff? Also, there were about 247 articles yesterday, and now we have 129! I checked the deletion log, but not even one recent deleted article. It is getting very weird, please help! Btw, my wiki is james-camerons-avatar.wikia.com. Thanks in advance. --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 18:54, January 30, 2010 (UTC)

Also, now, in My Home, it appears when Wikia welcomes a new user, and when someone changes a template, things that never appeared before. Is it a bug or something? --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 23:45, January 30, 2010 (UTC)
Please talk to Catherine about this. She recently made some configuration changes to the namespaces which might have been requested by someone on that wiki. Angela@fandom (talk) 01:51, January 31, 2010 (UTC)

Importing a wiki... Edit

Hi Angela, the staff at my online text game would like to move our wiki from wetpaint to wikia due to some things we've discovered that we don't like about wetpaint. In the page about moving your wiki it says to contact you here or by email. Could you tell us how to move our wiki? Wikia seems like a much better site for it.

I can help you to move. Are you talking about the Marvel Mansion wiki or a different one? Angela@fandom (talk) 06:36, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
It's the trans9 one, but actually, we did manage to just start over using our backup. Apparently some of the folks in the game were used to updating wikis, so we just grabbed a bunch of people and got to work. It's a very small wiki, so we have most of the work done. Thank you for your help anyway! --Psychicsaphie 07:41, January 31, 2010 (UTC)

Hi! Edit

I'am Xz3yn, and incarnate here enhance it. Many editions I'need, than access staff's? (I'm Finnish and not canny speak English but practice always.) 88.114.153.189 12:35, January 31, 2010 (UTC)Xz3yn

Staff access is only for employees but people who make a wiki get admin access. Angela@fandom (talk) 22:14, January 31, 2010 (UTC)


Edits problemEdit

Hello Angela here I am again. There is a problem at our edits-count. GrouchMan saw it to, the Admin from the wikia. This is the Wikia:Grouches Wikia. What's the problem?--Station7 13:58, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

It looks ok to me. Can you explain what the problem is please? It would be really helpful if you could send a screenshot of the problem to the email address on special:contact. Angela@fandom (talk) 21:15, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

Now, the problem is that GrouchMan has already more then 200 edits and i have more then 7 edits, I already had at least 20- edits.--Station7 14:38, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

According to his contribs list, GrouchMan has 121 edits. That's the number showing up on his userpage and the number he should see when he looks at Special:MyHome. If that's not the case, please can you email a screenshot to show what the problem is? Angela@fandom (talk) 23:08, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
Well the truth is, before the problem occurred, I had more than 1000 edits already. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 02:08, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
Something very strange has happened here. All the edits seem to have been done by User:Default which is not possible! I'll see if the tech team can work out what's going on and get the edits assigned back to the right people. Angela@fandom (talk) 02:29, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Angela!! -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 14:23, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

I can't reply in Finnish, but if you leave a message in Finnish, I can try to help. Staff access is not something given to users - it's only for employees as I said above. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:09, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

Small wikis Edit

I would like to help remove vandalism from tiny wikis so that they can be free with vandalism, however I can not delete pages. Is there any way to semi adopt a wiki to remove the vandalism and then give back in the rights to delete? Thanks, GameGear370 01:20, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

There isn't yet, but check out Help:SpamTaskForce. Sannse can give you more info on this if you need it. Angela@fandom (talk) 01:23, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

WikiAnswers for Avatar TLA and Avatar JC Edit

Could you please create a English answer page for the various James Cameron Avatar wikis to link to, because currently they link up with the Animated TV series, not the CGI movie. I moved two questions, only thing is... there are two categories and I am not sure which one people are using, so I think it is best to start it over and make it more obvious. Bunai82

Thank you for the reply. Would this require talk with the Admins of the two different Wiki Pages? Or would JC_Avatar not really work? Bunai82
Also I started moving questions to Avatar Movie, I hope that is not a problem?
That's fine. Do you mean that JC_Avatar would be a better category name than Avatar movie? If so, I can set http://james-camerons-avatar.wikia.com/ to send questions there instead. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:41, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, to me, it stands out and you know exactly what movie it is. And Google also picks up the abbrev very well. Bunai82 19:41, February 5, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, it's now set to wikianswers:Category:JC Avatar. Questions in the old category will need to be moved. Angela@fandom (talk) 04:58, February 6, 2010 (UTC)
Will do, ^_^; though I hope people don't think I am trying to be rude or vandalizing. Anyway, thank you for the page creation. So doing this will cause English James Cameron Avatar wiki, to be linked to the JC Avatar answerwiki? Bunai82 20:26, February 6, 2010 (UTC)
Questions shown in the widget on http://james-camerons-avatar.wikia.com/ come from wikianswers:category:JC Avatar and if someone asks a question on that wiki it will go into that category. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:13, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Hello, oversight and checkuser aren't normally something handed out, if you have something that requires the use of these tools, you can send the request via Special:Contact.
For logos, are you having trouble uploading one or just needing a new one? Either way, Help:Logo ought to be helpful to you. --User? 11:41, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

Special:RenameUser Edit

I would ask you to create special page RenameUser. You'll need it. Thank you very much! Mistertalk 21:22, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

Personal attack/civility questionEdit

User:Mizu101, who was banned from Bully Wiki for personal attacks and tendentious editing now has a user page here on wikia central where he claims he was banned due to "corruption". Is this acceptable? McJEFF (talk) 21:21, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

It's best just to ignore him as long as he's not mentioning specific people. Angela@fandom (talk) 04:59, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Request for WikiaWide permabanEdit

I'm trying to leave Wikia behind, and I'd love a little push since I don't trust my little will-power alone. Of course, I'm not sure how you handle requests like this, and I wouldn't be too surprised if you didn't. But of course, if you don't I'll just end up vandalising as many different Wikia wikis as I can until I am. Your co-operation is appreciated. ; ) --ILHI 16:40, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

The easiest option is to scramble your password and remove the email address from your preferences. That way you won't be able to log in again. If you want someone else to scramble your password for you, just ask here. This is obviously irreversible. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:14, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Wikia Community Team Edit

I would like to be part of the Wiki Community Team please. If you want I could be "Main person to contact for Wikia Adoption or "A representive for Wikia" or anything you need. Just tell me your answer or what you want me to do. Thanks, TV Man, The TV King 16:01, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Only paid employees can be part of Wikia's staff. You would need to see Hiring, and there doesn't seem to be any openings for the community team on that page. --User? 17:10, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
What about an Administrator? Thanks, TV Man, The TV King 19:23, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
An administrator for what? Wikia has nearly 80000 wikis, you may start looking around for content you're interested in and see how the communities operate. --User? 19:31, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

If you're talking about being an administrator here on Community Central, then you have to be elected by the community in a request for adminship. If you mean an administrator elsewhere, then per Charitwo. Become involved in one of Wikia's numerous wikis and see if you can be elected there. If there's no active community there, then there's always the wiki adoption process. Good luck! - Brandon Rhea (talk) 20:51, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Sonic Fan Comic Wiki URL Change Edit

Can you change the Sonic Fan Comic Wiki URL to scfcs.wikia.com ? I am the founder and we need [[8]] that url to be scfcs.wikia.com --The Gem Foxcoon Trio Emerald Ruby Sapphire! 20:41, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi Sapphire, I just wanted to clear something up for you. While you are the founder of the wiki, you don't own it. No one person owns a wiki. Click here for more information on ownership on Wikia. Hope that helps! - Brandon Rhea (talk) 20:53, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
  • But can it be changed? --The Gem Foxcoon Trio Emerald Ruby Sapphire! 20:55, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
    • The best thing you can do in order to get a quicker response to your request is to send it the community team as a whole via Special:Contact from your wiki. Tell them what you'd like the name to be changed to and why, and they'll be more than happy to consider it. =) - Brandon Rhea (talk) 20:58, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
    • URLs are better when they contain keywords related to the topic. It's much better for a URL to contain sonic than characters like scfcs as no one is searching on Google for scfcs so they won't find your wiki. Brandon is right that such configuration changes should be sent using special:contact but only after there is consensus within your wiki's community to make such a change. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:17, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Wikia Answers Edit

Hi! For some time, we've had the Wikia Answers banner for disconnected users on Lostpedia-FR. But the questions asked are so ridiculous that we would prefer to have publicity (or nothing...). Is it possible?  Nico  21:38, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Is there a way it could be improved? For example, if the questions were just about Lost would that be ok? Angela@fandom (talk) 23:19, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
There aren't many French questions about Lost (4 in 3 months). But if you really want to let the Wikia Answers banner, maybe you could put the English questions.  Nico  23:48, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
Forget it, sorry. As the French airing of Lost comes several months after the American airing, we don't want to have spoilers in the questions. Nevertheless, would it be ok if we let the banner but put it on the bottom of the pages?  Nico  17:42, February 8, 2010 (UTC)
I'm sorry to insist, but can you answer me?  Nico  23:55, February 10, 2010 (UTC)
I've asked cywil to look into this. He's left you a message here. We are also working on making the bad words lists work to prevent some of the bad questions being asked. Angela@fandom (talk) 02:30, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Ok I hadn't understood he was actually in charge of this "affair". But it seems this banner is actually imposed upon us...  Nico  00:21, February 12, 2010 (UTC)

Google will automatically find it soon. The best thing to do at this stage is add lots of content so people are more like to find the wiki. You can also add links to it from related sites. See promotion and help:seo for some ideas. Angela@fandom (talk) 02:45, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Issues regarding plagerism on 2 GH sites.Edit

Hi,


This Roak from General-hospital.wikia.com. I would just like to point out that ghsoap.wikia.com is using our material that we worked on for their site. We temporarily borrow material from Wikipedia and quickly and heavily edit the content to fit for our site. But that is not what the ghsoap is doing. Yesterday, I deleted the copied part of the Jossly jacks article on their site: http://ghsoap.wikia.com/index.php?title=Josslyn_Jacks&diff=3872&oldid=3871

The majority of the article (a huge section) was from us: http://general-hospital.wikia.com/wiki/Josslyn_Jacks

Unfortunatly, they blocked me. Can you please inform them that copying from Wikipedia is ok (PS: but I don't keep the content) but stealing from other wikis is wrong? Thank youu.--Leslie Roak 00:11, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

It's fine to reuse content from Wikipedia and most Wikia sites as long as the Licensing is adhered to. Using a template like template:wikipedia is one way to attribute the original authors and that can be adapted to say the content is from another wiki. Angela@fandom (talk) 02:30, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Ok. THank you for your time, Angela. Leslie Roak 01:47, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

The wiki is run by volunteers, not by paid staff, so if users have left, others are welcome to get involved and even adopt the wiki. Angela@fandom (talk) 23:26, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Along with that, there is rather a big backlog of stuff to do, if your request is at the top, it wont possibly be the first to be done. I'll try and get in contact with any other admins and see what we can do. Note: #wikia-logos IRC channel now does the same thing, but its live, see if anyones in there with voice and poke them. --Lcawte, Regular at Logo Creation Wiki. 16:54, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

VSTF Edit

Hi Angela! I see the sin that staff are not very active, and I would handle everything. I am active all day. Would you please pay attention to it, are suitable for this post especially since I see that many of the staff are not active, thank you. Ervinutz 20:46, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Wikia Staff are employed by Wikia, INC. If you are interested in working for wikia, you may want to take a peek at this page. Thanks. Seahorseruler (Talk Page) 23:08, February 13, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, but do not know how to ask where the post. There you could you pass me please? I want to help Wikia, and I see that many of the staff are not active, please thank in advance. Ervinutz 10:44, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
But if they can not become staff, then I would thank but vstf station. Thank you. Ervinutz 12:42, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, staff are active, even though they may not appear to edit. Wikia has a couple offices where a lot of internal work, research, planning, development, marketing, etc.. happen. Last edit and login are deceiving when it comes to staff. --User? 14:26, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
Then become vstf? I got better with spam, I have a great experience with spam, I hate him. I want to help it on this side. Thank you in advance.Ervinutz 15:19, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
I believe the VSTF aren't looking for anymore members, but the best way you could prepare for potentially becoming one in the future is to just become active in dealing with spam across Wikia. =) - Brandon Rhea (talk) 19:19, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
Yes sir, but I do not care if the item is large, matters that can help better the community, I have experience. Ervinutz 19:46, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
That's fine, but you don't need a rank, title, or position to go along with it. Just helping the community as a regular user is the best way you can help out. - Brandon Rhea (talk) 19:52, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
Sir, it can help better project. As all projects can do. Therefore I do not yet part of the staff, I will wait for that, but that vstf, jut that I will do great, you have my word. Thanks.  Ervin [talk] 20:01, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
Ervin - one useful way you could get more involved is to work on the new Romanian Central Wikia. Have a look at the other Central wikis] for some ideas. Angela@fandom (talk) 22:56, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

And also Ervin, no one is saying that you wouldn't do a good job. That said, there's still not an open VSTF spot. So, if you'd like to help fix any spam and vandalism problems then, like I said, the best way to do that is to just help revert it wherever you see it. =) - Brandon Rhea (talk) 01:22, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Then we need rollback position; 10:21, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
If you're good at reverting spam and vandalism, local bureaucrats can give you rollback locally, but there is not going to be a global rollback. Try to think of it less like a title or position and more like entrusted tools. If you want to find some rollback javascript, try asking around for one that works best for you. --User? 13:37, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
So, see? The best would be this post because I do rollbacks and can delete all spam articles. VSTF would be the best job for me sir. --Ervinutz 13:53, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
I'm afraid there is nothing more to discuss. This will be the last message I leave here regarding this subject. Currently, there is no openings for VSTF, and VSTF is given to people who are proactive in spam fighting and not those who constantly ask for the position. I repeat: It's not really something you can ask for, sorry. Please take the advice given to you here and keep yourself visible. Good luck. --User? 13:59, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
Where are helper? To help users, but as you become your vstf?  Ervin [talk] 14:04, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Backup a wiki Edit

Hello, Angela - there's a guy visiting the Wikia I help maintain (poker.wikia.com) who is claiming he's going to delete the entire content of the wiki and move it somewhere else. I don't think I can prevent this type of vandalism, and I'm not enough of a wiki expert to even understand if what he's claiming he's going to do is possible.

So, to guard against disaster and losing years of my own writing, I'd like to backup the content of the wiki as it stands today, before he suddenly creates his destroy-bot or whatever. How do I do that? Is there a way to backup the pictures I've uploaded, too, or can I only backup textual content?

I've found the Export page in Special pages, but that requests that I list every page, and we have thousands of pages in PokerWiki. I don't know that I could properly copy every page name there without going blind. Is there some sort of bulk-backup available?

MarkT 09:37, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

If you go to Special:Statistics, there are database dumps of the wiki available. Wikia also does backups regularly. The claim is probably all bluff, however, so don't worry too much. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 09:40, February 16, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you - I hadn't noticed that before (and hadn't thought to go to Statistics to find it). So now I have an XML backup of all textual content of the wiki. Is there any way to backup the images? MarkT 22:39, February 16, 2010 (UTC)
Please email Kyle about this (or use special:contact) as Kyle is now handling any poker wiki related issues. He has an image dump. Angela@fandom (talk) 03:32, February 17, 2010 (UTC)
