Since you became an admin in VW again, I and Love Robin discussed that you deserve another chance after being demoted before, everyone learn something with their mistakes. However, there are things I want you stop doing when you become an admin. If you have a Discord account, we would happy to receive you in our channel, that way all users and admins can communicate with you. In our channel, many users and disagreed with some of your actions in the wiki.
So if possible, please don't lock pages permanently, lock only pages that are having Edit-Wars. Even if they are being vandalized, we can ban the troll but there is no need to lock the entire page. Also, please don't block or accuse people for thinking they are sock-puppet account, we need evidence to block those people. Also, please don't harass users because of their profile pic. Besides, any user is allowed to spam whatever they want on their user page as long it's don't violate our rules (like NSFW images, videos, etc).
& I wanted to apologize for scolding users because of my disdain for spamming (not harassing, just scolding). I mean if I spent time forever doing the same thing on one thing (like my userpage or something) instead of moving onto different things, what's the point of living? Ya know what I mean? Moderation is key to happiness in certain situations. That's what I believe in.
Forgive me, Sirin, but I had to change the block to specific charges on one of MIDKOWITCH's recent sockpuppets today, which is why I need each of us to help out in gatherin' evidence & weedin' out the fakes properly. Last thing I want is to go on a witch hunter & go pointin' fingers @ a wrong wrongdoer. Please & thank you.
Yes. Still, it's kinda important to add charges to a specific sockpuppet's ban for every user to know who these people are & to be on their guard should they pretty upon another unsuspecting user. That is all.
Hi B1b1Kal. I just wanted to give you my deepest apologies and how I understand my errors on the heroism wiki. I never meant to be so immature but I was just so mad at the vandal insulting me, I couldn't think straight. And thus, I was blocked from heroism and evil wiki til June 15th. To be honest, and with all respect I think that's a bit disproportionate. I mean, all I was trying to do was get rid of that sockpuppet named Animationfan20/AnimCartoon7 by reporting him banned (Thread:30306#55), but he kept insulting me profusely, making me angry and didn't seem to solve anything. I tried reporting him to you, but told me you needed evidence. The problem was I had no idea how to find out the original sockpuppet's name. After you solved it yourself, (the name you found out was called "Nate Spidgewood) you announced that you'd be blocking me for three weeks but instead I got three months, which made me heartbroken. If that wasn't enough, What hurt me even more was when you stated your extreme disapointment that I "abused your patience after listening to a "ex"-sockpuppet who apparently went back to his sockpuppeting days yet again & wasted all of time." That left me even more devastated.Heroism wiki is my favorite wiki to edit and I feel completely depressed.
Look, I admit I could've handled this problem much more maturely instead of warring, but i now realize my mistake. I shoulda just reported the vandal on VTSF/reported on Community Zanesk requests instead of continuing to backlash at the offending user. I'm sincerely sorry about how this disaster turned out.
See, I wanna prove to you that I've learned my lesson and show you how sorry I am--after all, it's not enough I tell you sorry, I have to show it. With that said, could I have my block lifted or at least reduce it to say approx 2-3 weeks to full month? Could you say place the expiration date to approx April 16? And I promise next time I will report the vandal the community before it gets out of control. I can assure you of that.
Thank you. :)
I think that was just a guess that randomly appeared in my head. I was trying to figure out which sock puppet that I tried thinking of any user that could be it--yet I had no evidece of that either. Come to think of it, I honestly, don't know how I came up with that idea either.
B1, so that you know, just having alternate usernames is *not* a violation of tou or against any rules. There is no "one user, one name only" rule across most of the Fandom network. It is only how a user uses the alternates.
For example, a wiki might have Role Play, so users locally are allowed to make "character names" to RP with; but can only visit certain other wikis with one of them due to restrictive local rules. Or they'd rather edit under one name on, say, Avatar Wiki and another more Star Wars-y name on Wookiepedia.
Many of Staff have alternate names for various reasons. For examle (although former Staff right now), Wendy/Merrystar; she used one for Staff business and the other for off-the-clock "relaxation/hobby" editing. For some Staff, alternates are used with different permissions so they can test aspects of Wikia/FANDOM.
So simply having alternate accounts is not bad. And for those who wish to leave behind some of their immature editing days, they find it simpler to simply leave the name behind.
Remember, is is misabusing multiple accounts which is blockable, not simply *having* multiple accounts.
I or one of my fellow The Evil Wiki admins & moderators alike, I repeat, I or one of my fellow The Evil Wiki admins & moderators alike will do that. Later tonight or tomorrow morning.
I'm sorry for we cannot do that because you clearly know the deal, as the rules have evidently stated no sockpuppets allowed, & one committed sockpuppetry after their first time being banned cannot return.
Now, if you kindly please excuse me, I must leave for work.
Hi can you please unblock my account? I swear to God I have only good intentions. You certainly can do something about that or you just don't believing me? What are the conditions? If you don't can or you don't wanto, it's okay but please just explain me why in a polite manner if possible.
Just one final chance. One last chance, meaning no more lying, no more phony user accounts, no more harassment, no spamming, no edit-warring, & no excuses.
I'm not saying because I'm sick from puking & number 2 last night, excuse my language. I'm saying because I'm trying to live & love the next decade of this century despite my unsuccessful good start of 2020.
Tell Love Robin.
I'll also remove your block from The Evil Wiki right away.
I don't remember doing that. I was on different computers and never took other users' names, I swear. Also, I've learned my lesson for three years now. Time to put the past behind us. I won't do sockpuppet again.
I'm sorry but I also do not trust sockpuppets anymore. I did thrice trusted some people without fully knowing who they are &/or what they were doing until it was too late when they faking usernames behind my back & that made things a whole lot worse than you would ever known. I was deceived & betrayed. That's how I knew better not to listen to them or to rely on them.
I'm sorry about that but I'm not a sockpuppet and I deserves another chance. I like editing on the Villains wiki and want to continue it if you please remove it. I'II follow the rules and listen to the person who creates it. The past is a long time ago so time to move on and let people edit again.
(sigh) Alright, just 1 final chance for DavidBrennan99, one last chance. But remember, no fake usernames anymore, & don't do anything excessively wrongful (like trolling, or vandalism, or edit-spamming, or even repeatedly making one-line articles without [informational] improvements), otherwise no more chances. That is all.
Shall I unban DavidBrennan99 on The Evil Wiki right away, Love Robin?
To minimize potential harassment from Trolls, we're having this conversation here, away from Villains Wiki.
It has been determined by the VW Admins that it is time to give you a rest from your Content Moderator duties, therefore you've been demoted. You've put in an awesome amount of time and energy in patrolling the wikia. Thanks for that.
However, it is obvious it has been taking a toll on you, so we've lessened your duties on the wikia.
Hi Love Robin.
I'm used to it. It wasn't that bad. You don't have to do that. Besides it doesn't stop me from anything, cleanup or spending time with friends, ect.
Also, can I ask you 2 questions? & please feel free to stop me @ any of those 2 questions.
How would I able access my userprofile @ Villains Wiki (since I originally put it on lockdown to keep it safe) in case if I would add new changes to it or something? Just in case.
& how long would you think I rest until I return to either my admin or moderator duties?
But I appreciate you & our fellow Villains Wiki admins for everything. & thank you for appreciating everything I do with my own hawk eyes & my 2 hands, especially the stuff nobody else would do a thing about, ya know? You're a great lady, Love Robin. :-)
Just ask whenever you need your profile page unlocked.
As you know, ALL of the wikias are having their URLs changed from "wikia.com " to "fandom.com". This migration has been scheduled for a while now and VW just recently changed over.
Staff no longer considers alternate accounts as a violation. ONLY IF they are used to *overtly* circumvent blocks and bans. In other words, Staff now has taken the stance of if a blocked user comes back with a different name but keeps their heads down and stay quiet, they are "okay". Only if they comeback to keep stirring up trouble and resume any problematic behavior which got them blocked should they be blocked anew under that alternate name.
Basically, we are not to engage in "witch hunts". Just simply block each name for the problems each name causes.
We all need to adjust our thinking about sockpuppetry.
