My occupation is Spanish Community and Content Manager at Fandom
I am Hombre
Bio Antonio R. Castro is part of Fandom from May 2007. Helper for 3 years focused on ES community and since 2011 he's member of Fandom staff. He's working currently as Community Manager. Fan of wikis, videogames, Star Wars, Song of Ice and Fire and any TV series pre or post Breaking Bad.
Why fandom have blocked Wikia lyrics? I think that the lyrics of a song cannot, in any way, be considered obscene and censored. The lyric of a song is to be always considered artistic expression, protected by the constitution of any free country. But, if you want, you can use a "parental advisor". Blocking a whole wikia because it contains some lyrics that an administrator considers obscene is an absurdity. It would be like closing the internet because there are pornographic pages! Wikia lyrics should be immediately unlocked.
Since there are some lyrics that YOU consider obscene (and it is however an arbitrary judgment) I can no longer add lyrics from the Beatles, Elvis Costello or Caetano Veloso? This is totally crazy! It would be like saying that on the internet you can no longer talk about Martin Scorsese because there are some pages where someone write that Hitler was a good guy. It is something totally illogical and violent.
So I sent a request about two weeks ago to adopt the Monk Wiki and was supposed to open up a blog post since there were other active users, which I did. However, I haven't gotten any responses in the past week, so I just wanted to ask if I could adopt it now.
Hey MechQueste, you are so close! Please ping me again in 2 days and you will receive admins & bureaucrat rights if everything is ok. You are doing a good work, but you have to remember another requeriment for the adoption: "You have created at least one new page (the more the better)". Good luck ;)
In addition, I would like to request the removal of the bureacrat and administrator rights of User Vile. He has made 1/2 of his 23 edits in 2009, one in 2013, and then 11 edits earlier this year. I do not agree someone should keep administrator and bureaucrat rights simply because he edits once in a while. It is a lengthy time and he does not care about the wiki at all. Thus, I request demotion of VILE. Thank you for consideration.
Over a week ago, i post an adoption for the Watchmen wiki, which you responded that i need to create a blog post and have more. Since then, i've been rewriting some page while also filling up the stub page.
Since i meets the qualifications now, i would totally appreciate it if you allowed me to adopt the wiki now.
Thanks for getting to my request so fast! I was expecting it to take longer, so that's why I did earlier. Secondly, here is my blog post that has been up for a few days. Sense it dosn't have any responces I will go ahead and leave a message on BlackhawksGirl05's wall.
I assume you're off for the day and will see this tommorow. Tuesday, May 28th my ABC Wiki Blogpost will be one week old and has not gotton any responces. I have still not recived a responce from BlackhawksGirl05, so I should be eligable to adopt the wiki now. I will update my request now and conteue to look out for a responce!
EDIT: Totally off-topic, but affiliates are just where I place a link to your wiki and you place a link to mine, correct? Sense ABC Wiki was created before November 2016, can it have Special:Forums enabled or does that mean it will not be enabled on wikis. Also, why can't newer wikis pick between Forums (or a similar, updated and modern, feature could be created) and Discussions? I find that forums fit other wikis more than dicussions, but at the same time discussions can be a better fit than forums, so I think Fandom could create options for everyone so every wiki is happy.
