Spanish language edition of Memory Alpha Edit

Hi, Angela.
I would like to know when the database for the Spanish language edition of Memory Alpha will be opened. I read at Memory Alpha that creating a database could take a week... but I've requested this new Wiki on March 6.
Sincerely yours,
CUADRADO ORTIZ, Juan Carlos
Lima, Friday, March 17, 2006.

Blocked the wrong personEdit

Angela, I've made a real blunder at Stargate Wikicity and I can't find the way to undo the damage. I've blocked the user Mindspillage (twice), but he was the one who undoed the bad edits made by other. I don't how it happened, but I nead help to correct it, if it's possible. Please tell me how to correct it, so I can learn. Peter R 06:37, 17 March 2006 (UTC) (or rather stargate:User:Pjotr'k

Mindspillage is staff, and can unblock themselves if needed. To unblock, go to stargate:Special:Ipblocklist (found in Special:Specialpages) on that wiki to find a list of blocks with unblock links. Splarka 06:47, 17 March 2006 (UTC)
I've left you a message on your Stargate talk page. No worries. :-) Mindspillage (spill yours?) 06:58, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

AliceSoft.wikicities, admin request Edit

Hi Angela,

I'm the founder of AliceSoft.wikicities, and I would like to have access to delete pages and modify system messages. Thanks. -Afker 08:09, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Ok. I'll set that now. Angela (talk) 08:12, 19 March 2006 (UTC)
Ooo thanks for the efficiency. BTW, on a diff subject, if I want to remove the history of an article, is the only way to do it via deleting the article (copying current content over to a safe place to be restored later of course)? -Afker 08:17, 19 March 2006 (UTC)
Yes. Angela (talk) 08:29, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

interwiki Edit

Angela, I have a request for a new interwiki at wikimedia:meta:Talk:Interwiki map#Individual_wikis_within_Wikicities.3F for linking to the wikis hosted by wikicities. Can you see of the proposed link is technical correct and that the name is acceptable? Reponds there please, I do not realy come here. Walter 12:48, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

I've replied there. Thanks for asking me about it. Angela (talk) 06:19, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Request for admin statusEdit

Hi, Angela. I'm having lots of fun here! I'm seeking admin status for the english version of "Constitution". I'm not saying it's been abandoned, but it seems to have been a bit 'dry' for a couple of months now, and I cannot find the one who relaunched it in English back in December to ask for admin status. I'd love to take it under my wing and help it grow. Thanks! Nhprman 04:55, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Ok. I'll make you an admin there now. Angela (talk) 06:19, 20 March 2006 (UTC)
You're awesome. Thanks! Nhprman 06:22, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Nonsensopedia rights removalEdit

We are writing due to recent administration changes in our Wiki "Nonsensopedia". Founder of this wiki, Yossarian has been inactive since 5th of November. Yossarian gave us an oral permission to remove him as a founder of this wiki. He also claims that he cannot access his account, because he has forgotten his password, and he isn't interested in further cooperation with us on improving Nonsensopedia.

On "Nonsensopedia" IRC channel, administrators have discussed this issue and voted for removing his administrator rights. Unanimously this application passed, so we want to remove those rights to don't make a illusion, that he's still active and hard working.

Here are the voting results (only in polish).

Sincerely, Nonsensopedia Administrators

Representative of Nonsensopedia, Szoferka 15:22, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Ok, I'll remove his admin rights. However, if he changes his mind, he can get a new password by clicking the "email new password" button on Special:Userlogin. Angela (talk) 01:43, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
Thank you. Szoferka 07:12, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

The Encyclopedia of Virtual Celebrities in Hong Kong Edit

Hi Angela,

I'm the founder of the wikicity. Is it possible to change the sitename from English to Chinese? Because most user in this site are familiar with Chinese. If possible, please change it to 香港網絡大典 .

thanks

No problem. I'll do that now. Sorry, I can't do this. I'll ask Jasonr to. Angela (talk) 08:45, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

I need sysop...ness Edit

Hey. I'm still Seriously. Anyway, can I have the sysop privileges back? I need to do a lot of standardizing, and I can't unless I'm a sysop. — Seriously | Talk | Contributions 22:42, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

What do you mean by standardizing? Angela (talk) 22:51, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
I need to help with the mediawiki: Sidebar. Since all mediawiki pages are protected, I can't. I also have to make some pages that begin with mediawiki: for stuff. — Seriously | Talk | Contributions 12:18, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
Look, I figured that if I actually had my sysop privileges removed, I would at least have the power to get them back when I'm ready. Someday, when all the strong bad emails are done, maybe then I'll become a sysop. Doesn't that mean I can have them back when I want? Anyway, I looked at my contribs. I have actually done more than anyone else, I can safely say. It's not like I dont't deserve 'em. — Seriously | Talk | Contributions 00:32, 24 March 2006 (UTC)
Ok, but please be careful. Community consensus should be sought on anything you're doing requiring admin access. Angela (talk) 00:39, 24 March 2006 (UTC)
Sweet. Thank ye. 69.162.201.219

Please get rid of the AIDS dissent wikicity Edit

It is dead and redundant. Even worse, it's interfering with our google rankings. Thank you. Revolver 04:57, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

I've emailed Jason to ask him to close it. Angela (talk) 00:39, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Wiki Edit

Do you know other free MediaWiki services that offer creating wikis, but for smaller communities? Please, answer in my user talk. Merci. Michał P. 14:34, 23 March 2006 (UTC)

You can use scratchpad: for smaller communities. Otherwise, see the list of hosts at Wikibooks. Angela (talk) 00:39, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

another problem in http://evchk.wikicities.com/ Edit

Hi Angela,

If a user who has not logged in copy texts from the wikicity, something like "Wikipedia, a free encyclopedia" appears in the target text. This doesn't affects logged in users. Could you change it to "香港網絡大典 - http://evchk.wikicities.com/" ?

thanks

Hi, I've fixed this. The page you needed to change was w:c:evchk:MediaWiki:Tagline. That's the page non-logged in users see, while logged in users see a page specific to the language they have set in their preferences. -- sannse (talk) 09:28, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Petiton Edit

Dear Angela
We're writing to you with very important case. Recently we have increasingly number of vandals, devastating articles. Most of them are unregistered users behind changing IP's (Polish internet provider, Neostrada, have "IP roulette" option).
That's why we want to occur to you with request to block an edit option for unregistered users on our wikicity, what, I think, will decrease number of vandalisms.
I hope you'll take this up as quick as you can.
Representative of Nonsensopedia Wikicity, Hani.MD 13:44, 24 March 2006 (UTC).

I'll reply at nonsensopedia. Angela (talk) 13:56, 24 March 2006 (UTC)
Thank you, we'll try to use range blocks. Szoferka 14:23, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Namespace Edit

I'm sorry。 I am a Japanese junior high school student. I am not good at English. I want to make a new namespace in my Wiki. I saw the article on the namespace of Meta. can I rewrite localsettings.php? Or, do other methods exist?4B3 15:53, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Changing localsettings.php is the only way to do that. Please let me know what new namespace you want and I can create it for you. See Help:Custom namespaces. Angela (talk) 02:35, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Please forgive my carelessness. And, please forgive my English not good. (My English is a machine translation.) I think about the necessity of new namespaces and will request it. Thank you for your quick answer. My best regards in the future. --4B3 13:06, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
There's no need to apologise. Your English is much better than my Japanese (あなたの英国は私の日本人より大いによくある。) even with machine translation. :) Angela (talk) 13:08, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Thank you! I will work hard at the study of English!--4B3 15:02, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

Thanks For That! Empty2005 13:23, 26 March 2006 (UTC) :)


Bionicle WikiEdit

Please destroy my Bionicle wiki. It is completely pointless, there is another one on the web that is so much better than mine. I am currently running a Code Lyoko wiki elsewhere, and do not like Bionicle anymore, and do not want to keep contributing to my wiki. I was the only user anyways. Please delete it, I want to never see it again! Please! KFan II 00:11, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

If you don't want to be involved, you don't need to be, but I think the wiki has a lot of potential, and more users might come there in future, so I'll leave it open for them, but don't feel like you have to take responsiility for it if you don't want to. Angela (talk) 04:05, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

But Angela, the Bionicle wiki not associated with Wikia that can be found here has so many users and is known as the "big Bionicle wiki". Everybody attends there. What's the point of Nuipedia? KFan II 22:15, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

That's a dead link. Which is a very good reason people should use Wikia and not rely on some website that is not stable and not guaranteed to exist a week later. Angela (talk) 06:32, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
He just typed the URL wrong, so I fixed it. Please don't insult our wiki, and say that wikia is so much better than it, we have members that work very hard for it and spend much of their time on it. I think you should respect his wishes and delete Nuipedia.--Bioncicleman of BS01
I wasn't insulting your website (you made it look like that by editing his comment to point to a different URL). I was saying the link he gave was dead. Often people host wikis on personal sites that are not guaranteed to be there in future. If people from your wiki stopped harrassing him and vandalising the Bionicle wiki, he probably wouldn't be asking for it to be closed. It's a shame the copyright policy on your wiki is so unclear or we could share content between the two rather than needing to argue about which wiki is best. People wanting to edit and create free bionicle content as part of the wider Wikia community will continue to be welcome to do so. Angela (talk) 04:54, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
I'm really sorry about the vandallism, I spoke to the wiki about it and it won't happen again. The problem is that Nuipedia isn't linked from the Bionicle page on wikipedia and probably never will be. We aren't either, but we are in an indirect way under BS01. I'm just saying that Nuipedia will probably go unoticed under our wiki, not that ours is better or anything. Oh, and by the way, I don't own the wiki, I'm just a member.--Bioncicleman of BS01
No, he doesn't own the Wiki, I do. I apologize for their attitude, sometimes I cannot control what they do outside of the Wiki. I do control what KFanII does, and he just vandalized my wiki. Granted, it deserved it when the members vandalized the pages, but it's just wrong to do it to a purchased website that is hosted on its own server, not through a parent site. I'll have the members stop (who already have) and not do it again. Thanks for understanding. --Swert, Co-Owner of BS01
True indeed Swert. I apologise on behalf of myself and user Killer Frost. - Bioran23, Moderator of BS01 Wiki

Popular pages doesn't work at all Edit

In evchk.wikia.com, all articles displays (0 views) in popular pages. Could you fix it for me?

It won't work because we can't track page views due to the way the site is cached. The link to popular pages should be removed since the data is gives is not accurate and won't ever be. See bug:289. Angela (talk) 05:35, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Another petition from Nonsensopedia Edit

Dear Angela,
We’re writing to you (again) in very important case.
Last time on our wikia, Nonsensopedia, we had some problems with our administrators. Because of this, one of our admins, Kondzio15, resigned his administrator rights and abandoned Nonsensopedia. Here’s his statement. In translation, it means: In 25th of March 2006 I’d resigned of being administrator on Nonsensopedia. I don’t give a damn, what you’re gonna do with this.
Administrators of Nonsensopedia had voted in this case. You can find this poll here. As you can see, unanimously he’s out. And here’s our request: We want you to take administrator rights from Kondzio15 as soon as you can.
Another one: Our other administrator, Lolek, is negligent. He were’nt on Nonsensopedia from couple of months. We wanted to take away from him his admins rights, so we’ve voted again. Results are here. We want you to take his rights too, if it isn’t a problem for you.
We hope that you can understand us and you’ll make this things as quick, as you can.
Representative of Nonsensopedia, Hani.md.

This is now done. Angela (talk)
I'm not so sure. You haven't taken administrator rights from Lolek. Read carefully the petition above, if You want to. Hani.MD 11:17, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
But Lolek was editing just a couple of weeks ago. What harm is there to him keeping his adminship? No other projects remove adminship just because someone was away for a couple of weeks. I am very concerned that you will drive off dedicated users if you have this sort of policy of removing rights from them when they have not abused those rights. Wikia sites are supposed to be open to everyone and adminship is simply something given to trusted users. Angela (talk) 12:37, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Hi Angela. First of all sorry for my english. I'll try to explain why we got politic of quick removing admin rights from an inactive user. Nonsensopedia community is very young and still very small. The youngest admin is 15, and the oldest is 22. We got 10 admins. Except of them there's maybe 10 users who are active and interested in expanding project and who really know how to make that kind of encyclopedia.
Most of edits on Nonsensopedia are accidental. We got a plague of embarrassing edits referended to our local grandpha celebrities, like Andrzej Lepper (en), Tadeusz Rydzyk (en) and the biggest curse, Chuck Norris and his roundhouse kick. Furthermore whe got a lot of oldest arcticles where may be some content about private persons. Most of accidental ip user thinks that in Nonsensopedia they can write about they friends, enemies, teatchers or local stars like hobos and old mans. Whe got a lot of desolated articles to.
Earlier, when Nonsensopedia starts, founder, Yossarian, brings to the situation of total anarchy, and when he's gone, anarchy has grown without any control. Maybe six weeks ago we complete a group of people who wants to transformate Nonsensopedia into a really good encyclopedia. When we asking to remove some right, we'll try to release place for new person becouse we affraid of restrictions relative to number of admins owing to an article in wikicity. Is there any restrictions? We are trying to optymalize our work and workplace. We are just in the begining of forming Nonsensopedia. Sorry for boring. Szoferka 01:39, 4 April 2006 (UTC)
There is no limit to the number of admins you can have. If there are problems with vandalism, it would be best to have as many trusted users as possible be admins so that they can help with reverting that. Angela (talk) 04:15, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Help Edit

How do I get a logo for my Wikia called War. Thank you. General Eisenhower 23:37, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

Create a 150x150 pixel (or less) PNG file of what you want as your logo, and upload it to filename Wiki.png (example: Image:Wiki.png). Splarka 03:23, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
  • I tried to get War Wikia's logo the image below but I can't. Can you do it for me because I'm stumped. Tell me when you completed it on my talk page. Thank you. Star Wars' Wiki 23:19, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Please help me!Edit

Angela, I visited my wiki, Nuipedia, and found out that a bunch of users from the Bionicle Sector 01 Wiki had vandalized it! Now all of my pages have been destroyed! Please help me! I banned a bunch of them for infinite time, but it's just too much for me to handle! What should I do? KFan II 20:56, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Don't worry. I'll fix it now. Angela (talk) 23:38, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
I'm sorry about this KFan II, I spoke to some of the members on BS01 that it was not right to do so. It won't happen again.--Bioncicleman of BS01

Yes Edit

Thank you. After I requested Yugipedia, I found that Wikia already has a Wikia about Yu-Gi-Oh. I'm thinking of requesting a Wikia called countries, now. Star Wars' Wiki 22:45, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

There is a wiki for places at cities, so perhaps the content you're thinking of could go there. Angela (talk) 03:03, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Angela!Edit

The vandalism on Nuipedia continues! They're even calling me very rude names! Is there any way to stop members of BS01 from vandalizing pages? Many pages now only have swear words on them! Please stop this madness! KFan II 15:34, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

I'm really sorry about this KFan II, I already reverted the vandallsim there. Man, I feel like I am two sides. Also, please do not vandallise again on BS01. You were upset when people vandallised Nuipedia, what makes us different.--Bioncicleman of BS01
Don't let it worry you. Vandalism is very easy to revert, and if you don't want to do it, someone else will help. You obviously need to stop vandalising their wiki as well. Perhaps you could suggest to them that they collaborate rather than needing to see this as a competition. Angela (talk) 02:24, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
There are two problems with your proposition, Angela. First of all, the members of BS01 wiki will not listen to anything he says because they know who he is and what he has done(not that all of it is bad). Even if they were to agree with him, he has a two year block for the vandallism he did, and by then he will not even care about it. Alot can happen in two years.--Bioncicleman of BS01
I have to agree with Bionicleman. He vandalised my Wiki, in a deliberate attempt for retaliation, but my CVU team took care of the mess, and he was blocked for 2 years. I would have made it longer, but I didn't think it needed to be any more than it is. The main problem I have with KFan is he's vandalised so much of my Wiki, and this wasn't even the beginning of it. He started it 6 months ago when we were new, and then he left because all the information he provided was inaccurate, incorrect, and once more spam. He created his own Wiki, granted a Bionicle Wiki wasn't here to begin with, but then he proceeded to fill it up with more spam. My members did what they did so that the Wiki could possibly be closed, and more false info could be closed. Oh, and hopes of people moving information back and forth through the Wikis is impossible... the BS01 Wiki doesn't have a GFDL. We cannot copyright (or copyleft) already copyrighted property, and we cannot simply make our own stuff just to settle the needs of the GFDL. Now, if you still think Nuipedia should stay online, that is your problem... but, I ask that you don't make it mine as well. -Swert, Co-Owner of Bionicle Sector 01
As far as I know, he has placed complete rubbish on both his and our wiki. I do not want to offend KFan II, but I must say that he knows NOTHING about Bionicle. That's my say, and goodbye, may we never meet again. - Bioran23, Moderator of BS01 Wiki

He knows some thing about BIONICLE, but he already said he doesn't like it anymore.--Bionicleman of BS01

The Babylon Project Edit

I was wondering about the current status of the Bablyon Project Wiki and if I could have Admin access to it. I would like to build up this wiki and would appreciate your help. You can contact me at darthxor@gmail.com.

Do you have a username? You're welcome to start editing the wiki and you can do that even without a username. Once you've made some edits and decided to log in, I can give you admin access. Angela (talk) 02:24, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Big Problem Edit

I have a big problem. It's about cretaing the new Wikia. I requested one on Kentucky but I'll never know if my Wikis was ever created because nobody can e-mail me. I don't have an e-mail adress. Please tell me when the administrators created it because I'll never have any way of knowing. Honest Abe 21:08, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

I've left you a message at wikicities:c:kentucky:User talk:Honest Abe. Angela (talk) 03:42, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Now that I have a new Wikia, I'll be able to create more. Honest Abe 21:34, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Adminship on a semi-inactive wiki Edit

I seem to be the only user (other than you, User:Splarka and a bot) to be contributing to ShoppingWiki: (since the start of 2006). This is probably temporary, and will change when the wiki gets some publicity, but it means there's nobody to answer a RfA. Can I become an admin so I can delete some pages after an upcoming merge, and carry out successful VfAs and VfDs in the future? Seahen 16:02, 3 April 2006 (PDT)

Also, could ShoppingWiki: have a Portal namespace? I'd like to make graphical front ends for some categories, and a portal namespace would be the logical place. Seahen 23:12, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Update: This duplicates an e-mail I sent on the contact form.
I've replied at w:c:User talk:Seahen. Angela (talk) 02:47, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Adminship on pl.fantasyEdit

Hi Angela. On pl.fantasy one guy is coping articles from Nonsensopedia, most of them are about politicans. I assume that's some child. Founder on this wiki has 4 edits and he has be gone for 6 weeks now. I would be mostly pleased if you granted me a admin rights, thus I could clean up that wiki and improve it technically. I'm looking forward for your reply here. Szoferka 20:47, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

I've made you an admin and bureaucrat there. Good luck cleaning up the wiki. Angela (talk) 06:08, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Szoferka 23:50, 7 April 2006 (PDT)

Homestar Parody Wiki Edit

User:Seriously has gone crazy. He blocked me for 1 year because he didn't like me. He deleted an IP address type account that had no dots so it was an actual user. He yelled at me because I undeleted something. And he IS A TROLL ON OTHER WIKIS!The thing Talk 15:20, 6 April 2006 (PDT)

Angela, please let me explain so that my reputation on all wikis isn't completely ruined. I blocked The thing because of his overall immaturity and defiance to comply with the standards. He has gossipped about me cruelly, too. I am majorly offended by this. That alon should be should be considered a personal attack, enough to remove him of his adminship. But that's not where it ends. There was a troll named Trollbrother2 way back when. He was finally blocked permanently for his trolling. Sadly, The thing would not put up with it, so we finally had to settle with his babyish immaturity and agree to three months. Just now, he unblocked him. He has a major ego problem if he thinks he can do something big like that when the community consensus disagreed. Finally, the IP address should consider creating an account. He already has, and soon his userpage will be deleted. There is no problem. I hope I have explained our predicament adequately, and I wish you good luck with your future endeavors. — Seriously | Talk | Contributions 22:44, 6 April 2006 (UTC)
Come on guys, you've got to work this out. The Thing, you need to listen to, and talk to, the other people on the Wikia. If everyone disagrees with you, then you need to be able to go along with them - even if it's not something you want to do. Blocking each other is not a good way to work out your disputes. Seriously, it's not a good idea to block IPs that are trying to contribute. If they are not understanding how you do things, then try talking to them about it. The same with encouraging people to make an account - try persuading them, it may cause a lot less problems.
On IP user pages, you need to work this policy out between the two of you and the rest of the community. If all of you agree, then fine. The idea that someone came up with of redirecting IP user pages to their talk page seems a very good compromise. You have a potentially good Wikia here, with lots of possible users to join you. You have both made edits in the past that you might want to forget now, so I suggest you both move on from that and make this Wikia a good place to be for everyone. Thanks for listening. -- sannse (talk) 09:14, 7 April 2006 (UTC)
Well, for the record, I don't think anyone redirercted the IP to his talk page—I believe that The thing redirected the IP userpage to the same thing, but without dots. I find it sensible for him to create an account—it would not only make him a legal user in my eyes, but it would delete all of this controversy. This is all utterly obsolete, however—as The thing just said he quit. For some reason. Of course, he's donbe this multiple times, and he always comes back. Ah well. — Seriously | Talk | Contributions 11:18, 7 April 2006 (UTC)
He called be an ***hole! —The thing Talk 13:12, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

We should get an Arbitration Committee!--M Johnson 23:23, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

www.desencyclopedie.comEdit

Can you give me a time frame as to when you will make the default URL of Desencyclopedie to www.desencyclopedie.com? I gave you the domain name about 3 weeks ago, and it's still laying unused as a parked domain. It should be a simple thing, really, so I'm puzzled as to the holdup. Thanks! --Philo 09:52, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

I've no idea. I've asked Jason to contact you about this. Angela (talk) 06:08, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
I see it's working now. Many thanks, and sorry for the nagging. :) --Philo 12:06, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Command & Conquer wikis Edit

The reason that there are only a few pages is that I haven't got round to announcing it to the Command & Conquer fan community yet, becuase I have been busy lately. I think it could be broadened some time in the future, but right at the moment I just want to see how it gets on with just the tiberian universe.

I don't see any harm in letting people add other topics since this is supposed to be the cnc wiki, not just the tiberian wiki. Angela (talk) 06:08, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Problem Edit

Hi! The URL on this page[2] does not exist.

Thanks for pointing it out. It should have been http://zlo.wikia.com. Angela (talk) 15:07, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Active Mini Wikis? Edit

How do you define active - i.e. how do we (Sandbox/MyraPedia:Home) enter the 'active' list? Already we have more entries than some listed. I've got the first four people to edit it and the first 80something articles in "Category:Myra" Our old paper encyclopedia on Myra (which has 15,000 pages printed in books and magazines, and has its entry in de.wikipedia) has 3000 entries on the letters A-D alone, so I expect the MyraPedia will merit its own Wiki someday soon... Any advice? Gwyndon 10:24, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your answer. I've put up a request for a full Wiki :-) Gwyndon 12:32, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

NuipediaEdit

Hello Angela. I am an admin of the Bionicle Wiki, BS01 Wiki, and after reading about the competition back and forth, I have some bones to pick with you. You need to know when to stop and give things up. Nuipedia was created originally to compete with BS01 Wiki, as K Fan was once a member of our wiki. But after spamming up the site with incorrect information, he was blocked, stormed off, and created this to try and get revenge. Like Bionicleman and Swert had already said, just please respect his wishes, as it is HIS wiki. Also, no offense, but Nuipedia will never thrive, simply of the fact that there is another one that has been up longer. You might think that vandalism is ok and easy to revert (which it is) but it's simply downgrading and rude (from both sides). And I don't see how through all this you still wish that the two wiki's will collaborate and work together. As human beings we have perceptions, and we learn from expierence. Meaning it would never work out. Please respect all of our wishes and delete Nuipedia.

On another note: "Often people host wikis on personal sites that are not guaranteed to be there in future." BZPower has been up and running for at least 3 years and will continue to do so. How do we know that Wikia will stay up that long?

Bottom line is: It will never work out so just delete it. If you want it "to be open for others to edit" then just tell those people to come to BS01.--84.40.25.240 21:38, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

It is not his wiki. Wikia will continue to provide wikis for people who want to create free content (clearly licensed under the GFDL so it is compatible with Wikipedia, unlike most other wikis) within a single site where they have the benefit of single login with 1000 wikis and in future the benefits of improved software (Wikia has just received $4million to develop this site). I realise there will be other sites offering wikis on similar topics, but as long as those are not hosted by Wikimedia, there is no reason for us to close our wikis just because there may be overlap. It's like asking Google not to bother indexing pages about Lego because Yahoo already do that. If people want to use Google, they expect all sites to be indexed by them regardless of what other companies are offering. I don't see why you have such an issue about there being another wiki on this topic. If you're worried about it competing, perhaps you should ask Wikia to host your wiki instead of trying to close down ours. Angela (talk) 21:50, 9 April 2006 (UTC)
It is not about the competition, we have no worry about that. It's just that Nuipedia has a lot of wrong information and we don't want Bionicle fans to get the wrong idea if they visit it. And no one from our wiki is going to correct it because they already have the BS01 Wiki. So this disproves your Google and Yahoo metaphor. If Google were to link to a site about Lego saying that Lego was around even in the 1800's, while Yahoo just indexes the official site, then that it the right metaphor. And by the way we don't need Wikia to host our wiki because it is hosted by BZPower, the biggest Bionicle-related forum site. So no need for competition, just the fact that the inaccurate information could mis-lead users--70.104.106.63 21:37, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
To add to this, I wouldn't move the Wiki anyway. We have over 900 articles, plus custom things. Also, if we were to move it, we'd have to sever ties with BZP because we would have an option of making our own rules and not follow theirs. As it stands, I don't want to pay the server price that they're paying for me, so I'm quite happy with where it is. --Swert, aka 70.58.69.213 00:20, 11 April 2006 (UTC)
It will not be nice to have BS01 Wiki moved anyways, as Swert mentioned, it is perfectly fine with where it is. And it will definitely cause arguments if it gets move to a strange server where something could always happen. - Bioran23, Moderator of BS01 Wiki
Also, Nuipedia is going to just sink into the depths of nothing, as KFan has abandoned it and there is a very small chance for someone else to find it. I find no competition in this; it is like comparing a boulder to a pebble. So in other words, please just delete it, no one is going to find it, and its just going to sit there saying the same thing every day, until you delete it, or till the end of the world, or wikia anyway. Now, I would like to tell the full story of KFan II and Nuipedia, from beginning to end. On December 26, 2005, KFan II joined our wiki, the BS01 Wiki. KFan II, judged the wiki "quite screwed up" and said, "It is obviously my job to fix it". He also called himself a "boy genius" and "ultimate resource when it comes to Bionicle." He went off and edited the wiki with incorrect info, for instance he put that (you won't know this since you aren't a fan, but this is incorrect info) Roodaka and Sidorak are visorak and Krekka was once a Toa. He also made the suggestion that we switch movie images with set images. Everyone disagreed, but he still did it anyway. This was the last straw for one member (I won't name him) as he went to KFan II and told him to stop. Bioran23 also agreed. KFan II got angry said "As usual. Everyone hates my contributions. Good bye" and stormed off. This part is harder to tell, but I'll do my best. KFan II then went off and formed his own wiki, obviously called Nuipedia on December 28th, a day after his time on BS01 Wiki. He filled this wiki with incorrect info as well, and said it was our compition. I actually found the wiki when browsing wikia, but I dismissed it, discovering that it had no hope to prove compition on our wiki. A few months later, Nuipedia could barely find any members, so on March 27, 2006 KFan II went to the Bionicle page on wikipedia, and added a link to his wiki. Currently, there was a big discussion over what fan sites could be on the page, when the admin who was arguing for some sites to be removed, instead of removing Nuipedia, kept it. Swert saw the wiki, and instead of what I did when I found it, he went scurrying to BS01 wiki and alerted us. I was amused when I read his plea, since I remembered finding it earlier. I however fought for the Nuipedia link to be removed, and with some help from Swert, managed to get the link to be removed. Even so, some members on our wiki, after finding out about Nuipedia, went on vandalizing his site. Okay, this is a really long post, so I'm going to brake it for now and continue in a different post.--Bionicleman of BS01
Okay, here's part two of the story. Anyways, after seeing the vandalism, KFanII blocked the users who vandalized. However, KFan II didn't know how to revert vandalism, so he asked Angela to do it. She gladly did so, and reverted all the vandalism. But KFan II got mad and returned to BS01. He committed vandalism, however our Counter Vandalism Unit managed to stop him and he was blocked for a lengthy two years. Then, some members returned to Nuipedia, and once again committed vandalism. I this time reverted the vandalism, and discovered that KFanII wanted the site to be deleted, but you won't delete it. And here we are today, trying to get you to delete Nuipedia. Besides KFanII doesn't even like BIONICLE any more. I hope you enjoyed my Novel, and maybe it will change your mind. Oh, and by the way, this wasn't ment to flame KFanII or Nuipedia, it was meant to see the big picture, and not just from one point of view since some members have some misconseptions.--Bionicleman of BS01
There's still no reason to delete it. Either other people will find it, in which case at some point someone will take the time to improve it, or they will not find it, and it will not matter. Sector 01 is indeed a far larger and better wiki, but your copyright policy (which, ironically, I can't link to because the site has been spam-blocked) is one reason to have an alternate site available. It seems very confusing - I'm pretty sure you don't have the right to allow people to copy stuff onto other websites, whether they mention you or not, without some form of license. Indeed, you say specifically on your edit pages that you don't have ownership of the things people write. The people who wrote the text are the only one to have that right, and since you never obtained it from them you can't give it to other people. --GreenReaper(talk) 20:54, 18 April 2006 (UTC)
I'm not going to argue about the copywrite, as I did not write it and don't really get it, I'll let Swert explain it. However, no one is really going to find it since Bionicle Sector 01 has fans from other BIONICLE sites, so in other words unless they are from an obscure web site (or no web site), are on wikia, and browsing through the wikis and find Nuipedia, no one is going to find it. For an analogy, lets say there are two museums, both of which are about Aberham Lincoln. Now that would be fine, since people who live near one museum will go to that one and others will go to the other one. But, if you make it like how this is, it would be like one museum says that Lincoln was a twentieth century pop star, and is only run by it's currator. Now then, lets say the currator decides that he dislikes Lincoln and leaves the museum. Now we have an empty mueseum, with no one there and no one to improve it. Now lets say that the museum is in an obscure location, and hard to find. Now do you think that the museum should close or stay open, just to leave dust? Obvisly it should be closed.--Bionicleman of BS0122:38, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Excellent change! Edit

I like the name change from wikicities to Wikia!!! So much better, cleaner, shorter and sweeter!!! I really love your whole concept! This is what the web is supposed to be about! Even more so than WikiPedia. Thanks for giving us this technology! Paisano® 12:56, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

I'm pleased you think so! :) Angela (talk) 14:47, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
I sure do! By the way, I just submitted a request to begin a new wiki for my favorite movie of all-time, It's a wonderful life. I hope it gets approved. Paisano® 16:43, 10 April 2006 (UTC)


Ubuntu Chinese Wiki Edit

I have received the notification email of Ubuntu Chinese Wikibut have not received the password, I understand the problem now, I have not confirmed the email yet, also I have not yet received the confirmation email, maybe I ask for you can send me the password later. Thanks!--Itsmine 12:13, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

There were some problems with mail server, so these mails might be delayed. I'll reset the mailing list password for you now. Angela (talk) 08:53, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

MediaWiki 1.6 Edit

Does this allow semi-protection and Wikipedia CSS?? --195.188.50.200 14:45, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

It allows semi-protection. I don't know exactly what you mean by Wikipedia CSS. Wikipedia is now on 1.7, so its possible you can't do exactly the same things as there. Angela (talk) 08:53, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

"Wikicities messages" Edit

Is this supposed to still read with the old name, or has Wikia "missed a spot"? -- Zanimum 14:03, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

It's missing a few spots. It's on Jason's list of things to change since it would be pointless to edit the mediawiki namespace manually on every wiki. Angela (talk) 08:53, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Adminship on pl.Dyskordia Edit

Hi angela. This Wiki [3] has been abandoned. Its founder doesn't seem to edit anything. I would like to ask if i could be granted administrative rights to this project thus i could take care of it's proper development. {{SUBST:ZelDelet}} 20:57, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Ok, but please realise that the original founder might come back and begin editing, so I'm not going to respond to any request to have that person desysopped. Angela (talk) 08:53, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Access Denied Edit

Every time I try to save my edits I get some stupid message saying "Access Denied". What's going on here?Sam Randleman 22:26, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

It's a bug. The most info I have on it is Sannse's mailing list post. Angela (talk) 08:53, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Domain Edit

Hi Angela!

Wa're to bother you again a little bit (You seem to have more trouble with us then with other wikis altogether). However, Nonsensopedia has grown and is still gradually growing and we thought that it would be convenient for both You and us to give nonsensopedia a ncie domain. Therefore we would like to ask you if it is possible to give nonsensopedia one. We have already researched domains a bit and most of them are occupied. The most "precious" one [4] has been taken over by a company that seems to make profit out of stealing domains. I also found a form here [5]. But they want money for it :/ If it is impossible to retrievew this domain, would it be posiible then to get another one? Your Sincerely Sos of Nonsensopedia --Sos 19:30, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

I doubt it would be worth paying a company like for the domain. An alternative would be to be at pl.uncyclopedia.org to keep all the language versions of Uncyclopedia together. The naming scheme would be the same as Wikipedia, with the language code used as the subdomain name, so should be fairly familiar for people who have used any of the Wikimedia wikis. Angela (talk) 22:46, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
This would be convenient but only if other wikis had a domain like this either. It would be some kind of unification, and recently many ucyclopedia-like wikis began to provide interwiki links. And also I would like to ask if it would be possible to get .pl domain/alias if we paid on our own? --Sos 17:36, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
I'm going to suggest that all Uncyclopedias be on the same domain, and then if people want to buy related names and redirect those there, they can do, but the "real URL" would always be <langcode>.uncyclopedia.org so users could be certain they are on the real Uncyclopedia and not on some fake site that has been stealing domain names. Angela (talk) 02:22, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Naruto Wiki Edit

I need instructions on how to change the language from japanese to english. I made a mistake on my request on a new wiki. So I really need to know how to change Naruto Wiki's language to english.TranClan

Ok. I'll change that now. Angela (talk) 11:52, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Wikhowto Edit

We want to replace the logo of Wikihowto to this one. Thanks. moa3333 11:16, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Those 2 logos look the same to me. If you're still seeing the old, try clearing your cache by pressing Ctrl and F5 on the image. Angela (talk) 11:52, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Football Wiki Edit

Is it possible to delete inactive Wikis and start afresh with a whole new one? That's what I'd like to do with the English Football (Soccer) Wiki.--M Johnson 23:11, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

It only has one page anyway. I suggest you just edit the main page and start again. Angela (talk) 00:38, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

OK, I'll do that. Could I have admin access there please?--M Johnson 08:23, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Ok. Angela (talk) 00:58, 17 April 2006 (UTC)


New wiki Edit

Can you set up a new wiki for us - the Whitmarshwiki? Also, is semi-protection offered?? --Jazgred 23:32, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Yes, but please send a request form with details of what this wiki would be about. Angela (talk) 00:38, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

BarnstarEdit

Barnstar For Angela for all her work getting Wikicities, now Wikia, going and dealing with all the wiki-ignorance (including mine) and imaturity. (I've never given a ~Barnstars~@barnstar@ before, so I hope this is a good way to do it.) --CocoaZen 03:11, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
Thank you! That's my first Wikia barnstar. I hope you have a Happy Easter. Angela (talk) 03:30, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
Looks like it's the first one anyone's received on the Central Wikia. That seems appropriate to me.
Happy holidays to you! (I just finished helping out the Easter bunny. What fun!) --CocoaZen 03:40, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Request of account removal Edit

Hi Angela! It may sound strange and inconvenient to You, but I would like you to remove my sysop privileges along with my whole accout from Nonsensopedia. I may ask Jason if it is of too much trouble to you. It is the last thing here for now I ask of you so please remove my whole account. If it is impossible though, just remove sysop privileges from me. It is because I would like to drop any contact with them, as they will sure try to perceive me to come back. Yet, due to interpersonal circumstances on this wiki, I just want to part from them. Hope you'll understand. Best regards and happy easter --Sos 09:37, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

I can't delete accounts, since they are shared across all wikis, and not specific to Nonsensopedia. However, I have removed your admin access. I would like to hear more about what the problems are and why you decided to quit. Please email me if you don't want to discuss it publically. Angela (talk) 00:58, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
Hmm... It seems that I still have my sysop, but let's keep it this way for a time being. I'll keep in touch with you and try to explain the situation. Thanks for your concern. --Sos 21:44, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Wiki name change Edit

Can you change our wiki name to Merseyuncyclopedia please - Merseywiki is no longer appropriate. --Wicklow 12:16, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

No, please use Uncyclopedia for parody content. The Mersea wiki is supposed to be a real wiki about the county of Mersea. Angela (talk) 00:58, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Special Page Request Edit

Hey, Angela, I was wondering, can you make a restricted special page that tells you what other peoples IP addresses are? Thank you. —The thing Talk 16:40, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Not really, since IPs are private information. Staff can see them using CheckUser. Angela (talk) 00:58, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

The Matrix Online Wiki Edit

I just tripped over this site and found the Matrix Online wiki. Having had fun updating wikia for other games, I decided to give it a go. I posted about it on the SOE site: Matrix Online Wiki and will see if that generates any community interest.

Thank you for providing this service to us (I noticed you were policing the site for spam).--SwordMage 20:03, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Good luck. I hope the message brings in some new users. Angela (talk) 00:58, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

statistics Edit

Hi Angela. Way back in June you added three offsite images which carry a little bit of auto-updating ranking information to the Statistics page. Since then we've changed to "Wikia.org," so the first is no longer accurate. Can you remember where you got them? – Jello2 21:52, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

They were from alexa. I'll update it now. Angela (talk) 23:44, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Admin right removal on pl.fantasy Edit

Hi Angela. One of out bureaucrat, ZelDelet gaves a bureaucrat right to his sock puppet Wikirs. He do this without any consultation with anybody. Please remove bureaucrat and admin rights from Wikirs. I know it's the same person becouse Wikirs is (now) inactive founder of Digitalpedia and ZelDelet tells me some time ago that this is his account. Please use checkuser if it's neccessary.

ZelDelet is a good admin, but is also a person who loves power. I would be also mostly pleased if you removed bureaucrat flag from ZelDelet, becouse it's not the first time when ZelDelet does everything to have more power. He also forced Server Revres to make him bureaucrat. It's maybe foult, I gave a sysop to ZelDelet, becouse I needed help in translating MediaWiki, but ZelDelet even don't touched any MediaWiki files. Szoferka 17:41, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

Normally I wouldn't comment on this, but it's kind of striking, when Szoferka who got to be a bureaucrat on Nonsensopedia, just because ZelDelet didn't ask anybody is now claiming that giving out bugeaucrats without any consultation is illegal. --Sos 07:58, 22 April 2006 (UTC)
Sos got no idea what is going on on Nonsensopedia, becouse he is still absent. Barratry is his centraly and only job. To see his activity please look at his contributions (less than two peer day). I probably got more edits than all the admins together have, so I am a bureaucrat. Szoferka 08:13, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

Problem with the URL of the new wiki, Code: WIKI... Edit

Angela, the URL of Code: WIKI which you sent me via email does not work, or the wiki does not exist yet. Has Code: WIKI been created, or are you still awaiting my email reply? Because if it has been, the URL (or the Wikia itself) does not work. Please inform me of the problem. Thank you. KFan II 22:11, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

It doesn't exist yet. I'll make it now. It will be at http://codelyoko.wikia.com. Angela (talk) 01:10, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Code: WIKIEdit

Angela, can you transfer all the pages from the old Code: WIKI to the new Code: WIKI, or is it too much to ask? I can't transfer all the files, because some of my users put spoilers on the pages I don't want to see, if you understand. Thank you for your consideration. KFan II 02:11, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Did you see the email I sent you? Angela (talk) 03:23, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

No. I've talked to the other users on Code: WIKI, and they do not want to move to the Wikia host, as they prefer EditThis.Info for some reason or another. In any case, I must comply with my community. Thanks for the offer, but my users have made their choice. Sorry to waste your time like this. KFan II 11:37, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Do you mean that you don't want this wiki at all? Angela (talk) 07:03, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Its too much work. Sorry. KFan II 20:18, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

About Martin Oei's pageEdit

<messages moved>

I am looking into this. I've moved the messages from here to a private wiki to prevent another argument developing here and to try and keep all the information in one place. Angela (talk) 07:30, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

What is the address of the private wiki?--210.3.25.137 02:08, 27 April 2006 (UTC)
It's only accessible to staff. KaurJmeb will start working for Wikia on May 2nd. Since she speaks Chinese, I have asked her to look into this issue. Angela (talk) 06:29, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Wiki requestEdit

Could you allow us to have our own wiki, but without the shared user database here, and the checkuser?? It's a slightly nonsensical Wikipedia parody... --Southmare 13:21, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

No, sorry, but all wikis are set up to use the same user database, and removing CheckUser would probably just lead to abuse. Also, Uncyclopedia is already a Wikipedia parody, so we wouldn't want to duplicate that. Angela (talk) 14:38, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

CheckUserEdit

Please add this to ALL wikis!! --Thornfires 13:04, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

No, that would be a huge violation of privacy. There is no need to see the IP of every user. Angela (talk) 15:29, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

News box translation Edit

That's the russian translation:

Новые вакансии в Wikia!

Edward Chernenko~Обсуждение участника:Edward Chernenko~@o@ 12:03, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks! I'll add it to MediaWiki:News box/ru. Angela (talk) 12:19, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

egao.wikia.comEdit

The discussion have been moved to http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Babel Talk:Zh-hant/首頁. The whole discussion would be in Traditional Chinese.--Hant 16:14, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Just saying 'Hello!' Edit

Hi Angela - I note that you are my Wiki Ambassador. As a member of Her Majesty's Armed Forces, it is my duty and pleasure to observe the niceties of life and present myself.

I am a recent convert to the whole 'Wiki' lifestyle but I am having huge amounts of fun already, especially at my single contribution to date, The Army Rumour Service page.

I look forward to exploring this world in greater detail! Stay safe!

Joe

00:40, 29 April 2006 (UTC)


TranslationEdit

Hi Angela. Could you give me an advice how to start translation of all Central Wikia pages into Polish, how to categorize it and how to link it to exsiting pages in other languages (none, only some or maybe all)? Can I put Polish help pages into help namespace or where else I can put it? Szoferka 07:31, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

I've added a Pomoc namespace (and Dyskusja pomocy for the talk pages) where you can put them. You can label the pages with Category:Pomoc. You can use interlanguage links like [[en:Help:Contents]] to link to other versions on this wiki. Angela (talk) 16:22, 2 May 2006 (UTC)
Wow, thanks, namespace is a big responsibility. :) I will try to do my best to make it a really good think. Szoferka 01:27, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Melbourne Wiki Edit

Hi Angela, as you're a Melbournian, you might like this effort to create a city wiki for Melbourne. I'm still trying to find people that are willing to contribute, though. So not much there, yet. --Jsfan 04:31, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

I suggest you use the Australia Wikia instead since one aimed only at melbourne isn't likely to be active enough. Please don't use Wikia to promote non-Wikia sites. Angela (talk) 05:08, 5 May 2006 (UTC)


De-bureaucrating at the X-Files Wiki Edit

On the X-Files Wiki, I accidentally made a user into a bureaucrat without meaning to. I meant to give them administrator rights, instead. Is there a way you or I can remove their bureaucrat status? I would prefer that you respond on my talk page here. --84.65.92.137 19:32, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Fixed. Angela (talk)

Allowing blocked users to edit their own talk page Edit

Hello Angela, I am from the Austin Powers Wiki and I have noticed that blocked users are not able to edit their talk page, so they wouldn't be able to contest their block (we need to know if they want to be unblocked, and they are anons, so they wouldn't be able to e-mail us). Is there something we can do (or perhaps you can do) to make it so blocked users can edit their talk page? You may reply on my user talk page here. Thanks. 72.144.27.228 01:00, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

It's supposed to work everywhere but Uncyclopedia. I can't find what's causing it, but I'll try to get it fixed by someone. Angela (talk) 10:43, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
Okay, hopefully you find the problem. :) 72.144.27.228 22:32, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
Should be fixed now. Angela (talk)


Admin Edit

Hey Angela, I need admin stats in my wiki, but i can't figure out how to. I've read user access levels and the Admins' how-to guide but I don't know how I can make myself an admin, so I thought I would ask you how to.

Oh, and also, I've been having trouble updating my logo for the Wiki.

Thanks — Stake black19:40, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

I'll reply on your wiki. Angela (talk) 08:36, 9 May 2006 (UTC)


Help please Edit

OK, so I made a new Wikia ( http://proboards.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page ) that you apporoved, but am having trouble with it. I don't appear to have any administator powers, and don't know what my "administrator" username or password would be, as I never got an email stating it. Can you help me?

You just need to log in as Zangoose if that is your account. If you don't remember the password, use the "send new password" button on the login page. Angela (talk) 04:27, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks! One more thing.... Edit

This is still the owner of Proboard Wiki speaking.... Thanks! But one more thing: Are there any administrator privilages that should be seen in this account? It appears to be the same as any normal users. Thanks again :)

See the Administrators' how-to guide. Basically, you can delete pages and block users, but you don't yet have any pages or users, so the access level makes little difference. Angela (talk) 17:50, 30 April 2006 (UTC)


RLDS - InterWiki link problem Edit

Hi. I stumbled onto the RLDS wikia today to see what it was, and discovered that the admin was having a problem with InterWiki links. Testing it, they don't seem to be working. Were you aware of that? Also, it doesn't appear to be included in the List of Wikia, although it's admin has helpfully started an ~RLDSWiki~@info page@ on it. Thanks, Nhprman 01:19, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. It wasn't in the list just because I made it at 3am and went to bed before doing that. :) It's there now, and the interwikis are working again. Angela (talk) 03:01, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
You're terrific. Thanks! Nhprman 20:43, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Fantasy-WorldsEdit

The administrator from Fantasy Worlds seems to have been inactive since the 28th of December. I'm very interested in taking over this project, as I have a great interest in fantasy, and will be very active (every day). Macai | Talk

There's no ownership of wikis, so you wouldn't really be taking it over, but feel free to edit there and redevelop the site if you like. If you find you need admin access there once you've made some edits, just let me know. Angela (talk) 17:28, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
Alright. Thank you! Macai | Talk

Angela! Please help! Edit

Nuipedia has been taken over by some weirdo! Please restore power to me and take away his SysOp priveleges! I am the rightful owner of Nuipedia, and he has blocked me! KFan II 22:44, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

Please don't call other users weirdos. Have you tried discussing the problems with him? Are you adding inaccurate information to that wiki? You do not own the wiki, and it's not possible to block an admin. Angela (talk) 07:13, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Sorry for the weirdo comment, but this user has somehow become an admin (I did not appoint him), and he has blocked me, and I was an admin and a Buerocrat. I was not putting false information on the wiki, at least not any I know of. Not being able to edit, I cannot converse with him. Please find out how he hacked into the system and why he did it. Thank you. KFan II 20:17, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Angela, there's a prob. You let LL run Bioniclepedia, since KFanII left, so LL shouldn't be blocked. - Bioran23
Heres the story, to the best of my knowlege(I'm always telling storys for this aren't I?)Anyways, LL sees our wiki, and it inspires him to make his own wiki. He requests a bionicle wiki to Angla, and she instead gives him admin powers to Nuipedia. LL starts fixing the wiki by taking out the false info (KFan, It is false) and also blocks KFan for the false info and also since he abandonded it (I don't think he should have blocked him, but whatever). Anyways, KFanII comes back and sees that LL is running it. Thinking he hacked into the site, he goes to Angla and makes the comment above and blocks LL for infanite. She unblocks KFan and LL, but KFan comes back and blocks LL. Angla, I suggest unblocking LL.--Bionicleman of BS01 01:53, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
I only want to say that admin can unblock himself at Special:Ipblocklist. Szoferka 02:46, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
I know (Since I am one), but I don't think LL does. - Bioran23
I think both of them need to discuss this instead of getting into pointless blocking wars with each other. I gave LL admin access because KFan said he was leaving the wiki, and it needs someone new to look after it. Angela (talk) 06:15, 13 May 2006 (UTC)


Angela, how could you do this? He has ruined my whole site! KFan II 16:50, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
It was never your site. You also said you were quitting the project and wanted nothing more to do with it. How is he ruining it? Angela (talk) 19:14, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
Okay, KFanII, I'm trying to help you by reverting the vandallism and trying to get you to accept LL, when you delete my user page and claim that the two of us (LL and me) are planning a coup against you. Now you're making me mad. You do not own the site, if you want to own a site, go and make one yourself. And there is no such thing as a grand admin, all admins have equal powers. And he isn't ruining it. He just changed the icon and removed the false info (And don't say it isn't false, because it is). All he wanted was his own bionicle wiki, he did not want Nuipedia, but Angela gave him admin powers on Nuipedia. It isn't a coup at all. And stop saying that you are like a king, you are no better than anyone else. As the Declaration of Independence says, "All Men (and women) are created equal, that they are endowned by their creator, with certain unalienable rights, that among thease are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happyness". Memorize those words, Thomas Jefferson is smart. You are equal to Bioran, me, Legolover, and everyone else on this planet.--Bionicleman from BS01 22:16, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
Angela, I sent KFan II a user talk message appoligizing for whatever trouble I may have caused him, and he will be welcome on the Bionicle Wiki as long as he confirms his sources. -LegoLover
I completely agreed with you B-Man. KFan, you are not the top, even if you think you are. And as an extra note, you are equal to every living being on Earth, even snails and cats, although they might be less intelligent, they are related to us since we evolved from them. I am not offending you KFan, but you and I are exactly equal to the rest of Earth. - Bioran23

Help! Edit

On my wiki w:c:AustinPowers, I have been having several technecal difficulties.

  1. Regualr Sysops cannot protect pages, only Burecrats can.
  2. The logo will not load, and I did exactly as Help:Improving your Wikia said to. Problem solved. I just had to update the browser. The protection thing is still a problem.

And that's about it. I will tell you about any more problems. Dr.Evil(Talk) 00:52, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

I've looked at this, and can't see a problem with protection. I made an account admin only, and protected with that account - all seemed normal. Can you give more details if you are still seeing a problem? Thanks -- sannse (talk) 08:08, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Help with vandalism required Edit

One particular vandal keeps ruining The X-Files Wiki and using different IP addresses. Is there any way to stop this? --81.79.26.90 20:42, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

They are most likely proxies, just block them, and consider temporary semi-protection of the high profile pages ("Block unregistered users") until it abates. Splarka 22:42, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Is there a way to protect the entire site from contributions by unregistered users? --81.79.26.90 23:39, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

I believe that is against general wikia policy. If it is a serious attack with a vast number of unblockable IPs, you might try contacting JasonR (or in IRC@ http://irc.wikia.com/ ) but I see only 5 blocks today, which isn't that many. You might op a few more trusted contributors there or hold votes to nominate some. Splarka 23:56, 15 May 2006 (UTC)


logo SW Edit

Pourriez-vous me dire comment trouver le logo qui se trouve sur ce modele?

{{wikicities:Star Wars}}

--Wikisoft* @@@-fr 15:31, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

It's at Image:Older sw logo.png -- sannse (talk) 17:17, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Your emailEdit

Yes, I am the same user from Wikia, and Wikipedia. Whopper 22:34, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. It would help single signon later if you make sure your Uncyclopedia and Wikia emails are the same in your preferences. Angela (talk)

Linux Kernel Configuration Edit

how does one create (or suggest) a new beta page...for example, i'd like to create a page that lists every configuration option in the linux kernel tree, where people can edit more descriptive analysis of what each feature is used for (real world applications, etc.), so people can compile better kernels for their own use (sorry if this is too geeky)...just need to know how to get the project started

Just go to http://en.linux.wikia.com and add a link to the page you want to make. Then follow that red link to create the page. Angela (talk) 23:06, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Wiki creation Edit

Hi, I've filed a request for a new wiki, do you have some time to take a look? I would really like to start working on it. Idgl 22:05, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

This is now at w:c:linksextremismus. Angela (talk) 23:12, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Dissapearance of Recent Changes and Community Portal pages Edit

Dear Angela,

I have just noticed that the Recent Changes and Community Portal pages of the Amazone wikia have disappeared (wiped out). There is no way of retracing who did this, since there is no history left of the changes. Do you have any idea of what happened, and how can I get my pages back?--EVC 23:35, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

Some configuration files for some wikis were accidentally destroyed today. Jason has regenerated new configs, but there are still a few problems. He has a list of which wikis are broken so is working on fixing those. It will temporarily affect the sitename and the project namespace for some wikis. Angela (talk) 23:14, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Wikia & Toolserver Edit

Is it possible to create copies of Wikia databases on Toolserver (as it is done for Wikipedia, Wikibooks etc.)? ~Участник:Edward Chernenko~@Edward Chernenko@ 08:38, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

I doubt it since the toolserver is for Wikimedia projects, but you can get a database download for Wikia sites. Angela (talk) 23:15, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
Thank you. ~Участник:Edward Chernenko~@Edward Chernenko@~Обсуждение участника:Edward Chernenko~@o@ ~Абсурдопедия:Администраторы~@a@ 06:31, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

Hide templates on edit page? Edit

I am not sure if this is what you were trying (with {{Template:Home}}, but I added a css for the editing page of Wikia to hide the "Templates used on this page" list just on that one edit page (class="templatesUsed"). Revert if not useful. Also: It is possible using these per-page css to put a hidden div message box in a message (such as MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning or MediaWiki:Edittools with (for example) <div id="hiddeneditmsg" style="display:none">, and have it only display on certain pages such as "Editing Wikia" thusly: #hiddeneditmesage { display: inline !important; }, although this will appear below the edit box. Splarka 09:11, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Nice trick. Thanks. Angela (talk) 23:15, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Sysop status on SWFanonEdit

Hello, we would like to ask if administrator status can be given to some users in Star Wars Fanon, since Neomessiah isn't there. The candidates would be Wikimaniac, Ewoksfist, Diego Amerez and TempMan. Thanks in advance. User:Wikipsycopath is not Willy on Wheels, he is an alternate account of Ewoksfist, could you unblock him? Thanks. TempMan | Talk 11:09, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

I'm not going to unblock anyone who has been involved in page move vandalism, and I'm not going to make vandals into sysops. TempMan is Johnny the Vandal. Wikimaniac is the same user as Ewoksfist and has at least 6 other usernames. Angela (talk) 23:27, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Wikihowto Edit

Hello. Now that Wikihowto is more polished with a few contributors (between 3 and 6), i would like to start a french (fr) verssion and a romanian (ro) verssion, because this are languages that are native (ro) and almost native (fr) for me (english is a language learned in school/internet instead). I will continue contributions to english until the critical size is reached and more. Thanks. moa3333 23:26, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

It might be best to add content in those languages to the same wiki for now, rather than starting separate ones if you're the only person who would be editing them. Once there are a few other fr or ro speakers active on that wiki, they could be split off into their own wiki. Angela (talk) 09:34, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

zh wikis Edit

Angela, I need these chinese wikis in wikia:

Title:棒球大聯盟
Title:籃球場
Title:Wikia中文台
Title:Wikia足球俱樂部
Title:賽車極限
Title:Wikia攝影教室

Default language:zh-tw

Thank you~--KJ_(talk) 14:54, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

These are now made. Angela (talk)


Language Edit

Hi Angela, can you set the default language of asuh.wikia.com to id (Indonesian)? I found the site interface is a little bit strange. For ex: the Main_Page is already translated to "id" (Halaman_Utama) and the Help namespace already translated to id also ("Bantuan"), but a lot of system messages is still in english. So the interface is a mixed language now. Thanks. Borgx 04:42, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

I find that if you login as administrator, then a lot of messages are still in english. but if you login as user it's already in indonesian. But the indonesian interface is not the same as the current indonesian wikipedia interface. w:c:asuh indonesian interface seems to be outdated compared to indonesian wikipedia. thanks foryour help angela. Chaerani 05:50, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
Please check your preferences. Perhaps you have chosen English there. Angela 17:53, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
People should have Indonesian as a default interface language since the wiki is written in Indonesian, and they should not need to register/login in order to have Indonesian interface. Borgx 14:58, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
Users can have whatever they like in their preferences. It isn't dependant on the wiki. For example, my interface is always English regardless which wiki I'm on. If users create an account on there, their language will be Indonesian unless they change it. Unregistered users will see the wiki in Indonesian. It's only people who made accounts on non-Indonesian wikis and didn't change their preferences to Indonesian who will not see it in Indonesian. Angela (talk) 21:01, 27 May 2006 (UTC)


Sysop resignation Edit

Hello Angela! I'm one of the Polish Nonsensopedia administrators and I would like to resign from this powers. Recently I can't find enough time to face the administrator's job and that's the reason of my dissmission. There is link to my profile. Best regards, Klapi 19:59, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Hi Angela. Becouse of Sos absence and his slight contribute, we have decide to vote for his desysop. Here are voting results. Could you desysop him and Klapi? Sos probaply takes offence and he is not mean to come back, his e-mail is dead and there is no contact; also in other nonwiki project where Sos works with Zeartul. Szoferka 05:20, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
I forgot about one thing. Ages ago Zeartul gaves a double sysop to Jaboja, one to Jaboja, and another one to JaBoJa (empty, no edits, I don't know who has register that accout). Usercounter is fake and shows one sysop more than we really have. Could you fix this? Szoferka 08:35, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
I've de-adminned Sos and Klapi. JaBoJa doesn't exist, so isn't an admin. Non-existant users can't be accidentally made admins, so although it's in the log, it's not in the list of admins at [6]. Angela (talk) 10:54, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks, I was only afraid about hidden and unplanned admin. :) Szoferka 21:36, 31 May 2006 (UTC)


Logo & Other Questions Edit

How do I get a logo for myself? And is there any way we can access our wiki's files? As I'm trying to get the /Main_Page on another wiki...........

I'll reply on your new wiki at w:c:literature:User talk:King Kovifor. Angela (talk) 16:18, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I would like to also change the logo, on the Chicago wiki [7]. West Town 19:37, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

You can change the logo here by uploading a file on the right wiki called Wiki.png. There is a link to "upload a file" in the sidebar of every wiki if you are logged in. See Help:Improving your Wikia for more help. Angela (talk) 20:24, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
I understand that, but I am not an administrator on the wikia and it requires that admins change the logo. The founder of the wikia probably has admin status but he only founded it and has done no edits as I have seen. So, may I ask you to change it to this when you have time? Thanks, West Town 17:44, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
I've uploaded the logo and given you admin rights. Angela (talk) 18:44, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
Thank you Angela, that will be very helpful! West Town 19:43, 28 May 2006 (UTC)


How?Edit

How can i do to create a new wikia, i wrote the formulary but i haven´t my wikia.--JALAJANDRO 21:21, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

It can take a few days before a wiki is made. Your request is actually on a new system, so one of the community support staff will be able to make it for you, but all requests are reviewed, so it doesn't happen immediately. Angela (talk) 11:37, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
About how many days?Two, three...I was created the first page.--~Usuario:JALAJANDRO~@JALAJANDRO@ 12:10, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
You should now have an email about your request. Angela (talk)


Japan Wiki Edit

The Japanese Wiki has already been created but I am making an English version. Oh and can I be admin on all the projects I create? General Eisenhower (war) 21:13, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

Which wiki are you talking about? The war wiki is in English, not Japanese. Angela (talk) 08:36, 9 May 2006 (UTC)
I meant the Japn Wiki in an English version. General Eisenhower (war) 14:53, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
Where has it already been created? Angela (talk) 22:23, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

AIDS Dissent Wikcity Edit

It is dead and redundant. Even worse, it's interfering with our google rankings. Thank you. Revolver 04:57, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
I've emailed Jason to ask him to close it. Angela (talk) 00:39, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Could you kindly remind him again? I hate to be a pain in the rear, but the project has moved on elsewhere, and when someone comes along, it gives them the appearance that nothing is happening. Thanks. Revolver 00:47, 16 May 2006 (UTC)


Picture Vandalism on Memory Alpha Edit

Hi Angela. I'm an admin over at Memory Alpha. Earlier today one for our pictures (MemoryAlpha:Image:United Federation of Planets logo.png) was vandalized. It was quickly reverted, however, some problems remaine. I use the picture in my signature, and naturally, it is on hundreds of talk pages. For some reason, all talk pages seem to be showing the vandalized version. Any help would be greatly, greatly apreciated. -- Jaz (please respond on my MA talk page) Jaz 01:15, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

I expect refreshing your cache might solve it. Angela (talk)

SPAM users added Edit

I just got my wiki created and already there are 28,695 registered users ! Obviously this is a SPAM bot or something. How to I delete all of them and prevent it from happening again?

Thanks.

You're probably looking at the users for all of Wikia. To see just the ones on an individual wiki, use Special:Activeusers instead. Angela (talk) 20:50, 26 May 2006 (UTC)


SW Fanon Sysops Edit

We've had 3 vandal attacks in three days on the SW Fanon wiki and we need sysops. If you could check our sysops page and make some of those people sysops, that would be nice. MaulYoda

We need some people on the WarWiki to become sysops and I am the most likely to become one. General Eisenhower (war) 14:44, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
I suggest to both of you that you encourage more users to join these wikis first. Building up a basis of trusted editors is more important than adminship, and it makes it easier to find admins if you have a community who can assess which people should have that role. Angela (talk)

Thing is, we've already had an election and we have two very capable people leading the election, I'm in first and Gnosis is knowledge is in second. We've now had 5 or 6 vandal attacks and really need some sysops to control them. So, even though our community has some 6500 users, we really need sysops and fast and we would really appreciate if you could make Gnosis is knowledge and I admins. MaulYoda 18:38, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

Page moves are now limited, which will decrease the vandalism. Considering some of the people asking for adminship are the same people involved in the vandalism, it wouldn't help to fulfill those adminship requests right now. There is a lot of work you can do on the site without needing adminship. Both you and Gnosis have only been editing since late last month, so it's very early for the community there to see whether you can be trusted. Angela (talk) 22:10, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

Yes, but I'd like to remind you I'm winning the election and Gnosis is in second. MaulYoda 02:34, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

You are winning the election. However, it doesn't count when 5 of the voters are running multiple accounts on that wiki. Angela (talk) 04:10, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Well here's what I have to say now. We could care less who wins the election as long as EVERY SINGLE NOMINEE ON THAT PAGE GETS SYSOP RIGHTS BECAUSE I AM SO SICK OF ALL OF THESE VANDAL ATTACKS! MaulYoda

Sorry if that was offensive. MaulYoda 17:25, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

New users are now blocked from moving pages there, so there shouldn't be too many problems now. Considering the number of people voting with multiple accounts, some of who are sharing IPs with the vandals, I don't think now is a good time to introduce a lot of new admins. It would be better for users to build up some trust on that wiki first. Angela (talk) 19:11, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Well I know that but every user on that site is sick of having to correct vandalism or leaving messages for you and sannse and mindspillage, no offense. We really just need some admins to help out. MaulYoda 20:31, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

One more question. Do you care what age a person is if they want to be a sysop? MaulYoda

No, that doesn't matter as long as the user has proven themselves trustworth (which means not using fake accounts, especially to interfere with voting). Angela (talk)


Real Names Edit

Hello, Angela! Thanks for joining our discussion. It's always good to know that users like yourself and Sannse are paying attention to activity on all the various Wikias.

I have moved the discussion on real names from my talk page to the talk of a new page, policies and practices. I did this so that other users who want to put in their two cents could find the discussion in the logical place.

I wanted to know, though - is it considered poor form to move stuff around like this? (Before I moved it to my talk page, it was originally on the talk of the Main Page.) I realize that by moving it, I am deleting the edit history of this discussion. I feel, though, that this early on, Activism doesn't have a well-defined place for everything, so sometimes content and discussions have to be moved as new, appropriate pages are created. Well, I would like to hear what you think about the issue of moving stuff around, and if I should refrain from this in the future.

Nicholas Barry 06:52, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
I don't think it's a problem to move discussions as long as you leave a link to where they've gone, especially in the early stages of a wiki where things don't yet have a correct place. Unlike articles, the edit history isn't all that important since everyone should be signing what they write anyway, so you still have attribution of who wrote what. Angela (talk) 08:37, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

war wiki Edit

I have requested for adminship on the WarWiki along with Gangsta-Easter-Bunny, General Eisenhower (war) 14:41, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

I closed our RfA's as successful (that's for GeneralE, too).--Gangsta-Easter-Bunny 15:24, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
I hesitate to mention it, but there appears to be a bit of sockpuppetry going on the War wiki. It's harmless at this point, but I just want it reiterated that this isn't allowed on Wikia. - Nhprman 16:55, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
Yes... it's not exactly subtle either [8]. The wiki needs to build up a trusted userbase before getting admins. Angela (talk) 22:23, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
True. And when you see a user nominating featured articles for removal and asking for votes on the matter, something's wrong. Especially problematic when there's 3 active users. :-\ - Nhprman 03:41, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
I did that because that article didn't have PICTURES!--Gangsta-Easter-Bunny 13:11, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

JOHNNY THE VANDAL Edit

HE attacked us last night, and moved our Main Page three times! Will you block him?--Gangsta-Easter-Bunny 13:11, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Same he does on my mini-wiki:Lachfisch and others too. Please help!--84.63.144.198 17:14, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

These wikis are now cleared up. If there are more problems, please list page move vandals at cross wiki user blocks so they can be blocked everywhere. Angela (talk) 19:11, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

When Edit

When will you make me and GE admins? Is it time or a user count?--Gangsta-Easter-Bunny 00:57, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Neither. I think the wiki needs to mature until some trust is built up amongst users there. Angela (talk) 19:11, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
We trust GE and GangstaEB!! Them & I are the only major contributors there!! the_ed17 01:08, 10 June 2006 (UTC) P.S. if you wan't to respond, please do so on my WarWiki account. Thank you!
How can you know if you trust them when you've only been editing that wiki for 3 days? Angela (talk) 08:01, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
I can look at their contributions... Plus, Eisenhower is the founder for crying out loud! the_ed17 00:05, 13 June 2006 (UTC)


Please Edit

Everyone's leaving, make me a 'crat! I need to help it. Please?--GangstaEB Get up with me! 00:57, 16 June 2006 (UTC) 23:11, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

That isn't needed. Please understand that being a bureaucrat doesn't give you more power over the project. You need to add content and promote your wiki at this stage. Angela (talk) 00:57, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

Vandalism on the SWFanon Wiki Edit

I was just browsing some of the other Wiki and noticed a TON of vandalism happening on the SWFanon Wiki. I'm not sure who the admins are over there, but if none of them are around right now, I'm sure they'd appreciate some help/banning. Just FYI. Thanks. -Kapoli 22:43, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Angela, given the traffic that you seem to be getting on this, I decided to take a look at it. Biggest problems that I am running into so far is all the bloody moves that seem to be getting made, and the inability to delete the results of moving things back. Still, if it would help, I can add this to my daily run of wiki's to check on.--Kirk 23:34, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing it out. We are looking at ways to reduce the vandalism there through technical measures. Don't worry too much about deleting the redirects since those can be cleared up later and they don't affect use of the wiki. Angela (talk) 19:11, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Angela there is another vandal in fanon. Please come help us. Ewoksfist 20:32, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Which user are you talking about? Angela (talk) 21:30, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

A user, ASDFASDF, is vandalising our wiki. please help! Darth mavoc 11:16, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

Another vandal, some communism vandal is currently attacking the wiki at this moment -Di'e Go Am'er'ez


List of Wikia Edit

I was wondering whether new Wikis must be added manually to the List of Wikia section, or whether this is an automatic process. I started the Xenopedia Wiki around eleven days ago and it hasn't appeared on the List of Wikia or Newest Wikis sections. Colonial-marine32 10:44, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

They are added manually. This one was just missed since I was on vacation at the time I created it. It's now listed at Template:List of Wikia New, which appears on the list of Wikia. Angela (talk) 11:28, 6 June 2006 (UTC)


ParserFunctions Edit

Could you please install ParserFunctions extension on Wikia? Some useful templates from Wikipedia use this... ~Участник:Edward Chernenko~@Edward Chernenko@~Обсуждение участника:Edward Chernenko~@o@ 06:07, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

ParserFunctions are working now. For example, {{#expr: 24 * 60}} = 1440. Angela 14:24, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
Well, it was working. It's been reverted because the upgrade was making the whole site too slow. Angela (talk) 01:32, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Help needed on Hebrew Uncyclopedia Edit

Hi Angela, was wondering if you can help: apparently all of the Beaurocrats of the Hebrew Eincyclopedia (the Hebrew version of Uncyclopedia) went missing, and it is impossible to nominate new Sysops, which are in dire need. Can you help?


Thanks.

Rename Edit

Rename me user:GangstaEB, please. Thank You!-Gangsta-Easter-Bunny 23:47, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

This isn't possible since all Wikia use a shared user database. However, you can create a new account and abandon the old one if you need to use a different name. Angela (talk) 03:26, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

List of Wanted Pages Edit

Hey Angela - I posted a question I had about the list of Wanted Pages on Wiki24 in the Community Portal over there, because I notice that there are several pages listed as "wanted" that have no links to them and are just previously vandalized (now deleted) pages. I was wondering if you could take a look at both the conversation and the Wanted Pages and see if there's anything that can be done about it. One of our admins doesn't know why our list has those items on it, and another admin is pretty sure that it's because the items are all vandalized pages that have since been deleted. I was wondering if there's any way to get rid of them. Here's the conversation about it... Wiki24 Community Portal, and here's the list of pages... Wiki24 Wanted Pages. Thanks! -Kapoli 01:20, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure what's causing this. I'll let our tech people know about the problem. Angela (talk)

Name change of EVCHK Edit

In order to reflect the major purpose, we, the sysops of EVCHK, suggested to change the name of the site from The Encyclopedia of Virtual Celebrities in Hong Kong to The Encyclopedia of Virtual Communities in Hong Kong. Could you help me to change the name? The URL need not to be changed since the abbreviations of them are same. Thanks very much. --Hotplug 03:07, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

I've moved the page at Virtual Communities in Hong Kong. Is that all you wanted me to do? I can change the Chinese name from 香港網絡大典 to something else as well if you like. Angela (talk) 03:36, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Psychology Wiki QueryEdit

Hi Angela,

I'm a contributor to the Psychology Wiki and I have a question about some odd statistics about the wiki. If you look here [10] then it appears that our Wiki has ZERO views, which seems very odd, because there should be a few (I mean I look at it!).

  • So then I looked at the Psychology Wiki's Popular Pages and those too seemed to suggest ZERO views.
  • So then I looked at your stats link Stats and noticed that although plenty of the other stats seemed about right, the column for Daily Usage, page requests and visits seemed to be empty.

This doesnt compare with our google analytics report for the site, which seems to suggest we've had quite a few hits in the last week. Do you know why the Wikia based stats are going wrong here?

Tom Mostly Zen 17:46, 18 June 2006 (UTC) (Heres my Psy Wiki userpage Mostly Zen)

We don't have accurate statistics for page views. s23.org uses Special:Statistics, but that page is wrong. Due to the way we cache pages to make the site faster, not all views are recorded there. wikia.com/wikistats doesn't include page views because we know the information at Special:Statistics is wrong and don't yet have a way of finding an accurate number. However, the more important statistics of how active your wiki is in terms of editors should be accurate, so I suggest you look at [11] instead of the other stats.

Thanks very much for looking into this for me. Mostly Zen
