Clone Wars WikiEdit

Hi! I was wondering when you would check back on "Clone Wars Wiki" adoption request. It has been a couple of days (I know you are busy), btw I saw your book on the Star Wars Fanon Wiki, and I have to say, remarkable! -- Evanf (talk) (blog) (contribs)

  • I usually try to check back after 2 or 3 days, so I'll be looking at that either tonight or tomorrow. And I'm glad you liked my story! I'll be having a brand new, heavily revised version of the book The Chosen One coming out in the next few months! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 00:46, August 23, 2011 (UTC)
I can't wait! The others are awesome! Thanks! -- Evanf (talk) (blog) (contribs)
I mean, I don't think there are others... Any how, this revised version will probally be better than the regular star wars books! -- Evanf (talk) (blog) (contribs)

Adoption Edit

I am starting to edit every day on, and I asked the other user. I gerantee you that I am starting to be very active. CXXX 02:22, August 25, 2011 (UTC)


Hi, Brandon. Listen, I've had a bit of a problem on my hands lately - or for a while. On a website that I edit on - I've been asking the site's founder - Barricade123, for bureaucrat rights, and I've asked a few times now - but with no reply. It came to the point where he blocked me, for which reason, I don't know. I haven't done any vandalism - you can look at my contributions. Anyway, it turns out that strangely, he gave my bureacratic rights right after I was banned - and please, do not get angry for my doing this - but I managed to find a way to un-block myself and block him due to what he did to me, and the fact that he's been trying to rid my from the Wiki, making messy contributions, giving articles the wrong titles and not greeting users - other things as well. I am currently attempting to save the Wiki, even though he makes edits - but the articles are very, very messy. I was wondering if you could demote him, even though he founded the Wiki, I think that I can handle the Wiki. I have some other users, if you want me to tell you who they are, who wish to help me out. There was even a time when he made a blog post saying that I've been blocked, and that it's his Wiki again, and that I would never return. Can we somehow work this out so that I can continue editing the Wiki without him un-blocking himself and blocking me again? I apologize for the complications.


Arthur Wiki (Urgent) Edit

Hi, we have several users who are vandilizing the wiki. A user who vandalized the wiki a long time ago has returned, we also have several anonymous contributors that keep vandalizing our hard work. We really need you to grant us an Administrator. Unfortunately, we have even more complications now, because the user I thought should be granted Administrator rights hasn't edited for a week. If you have any suggestions, we urgently need them. Please respond, AnnawantimesTalk 01:23, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

Talk to vstf about cleaning up the vandalism and then someone from your wiki can adopt the wiki.--GodPray  01:41,8/31/2011 

adoption pageEdit

{C}I been looking at the adoption page. You know it would be nice if the link to the page that they what to adoption so poeple can can look at it without having to search for it. It is nice. That someone is trying to adoption, but I would take a peek at it. You know if they just do a little edit but someelse could come in and put in more edit or add to it. Just to say no you can't have it, but be able to look at it.

Rocketmanwikia 02:15, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

The adoption page is here. Thats where you can request for admin rights. But for that they may gibberishly give the rights to you so go try it.--Terrific joker 01:36, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

Hi there, i got banned from Star Wars Fanon. I need a IP address change 04:12, September 1, 2011 (UTC)Ahsoka Bonteri

Hello Edit

I need a spell cast to protect our domain from walruses, can you help? --User? 04:26, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

hello! Edit

Hi sorry to bother you i dont like asking lots of stuff but there's some inactive bureaucrafts on our wiki at complipedia i made a blog post here and

complienscreator00 said that the real founder jammiedodger123 doesent come on the wiki anymore :( Im an admin and a bureaucrat on complipedia i've been helping there previously before the wiki became popular. Just wanted to know if somebody could just stop on over to complipedia because we need to have their powers turned off some users ask inactive admins for help and they should ask active ones instead. Soree to bother you.

cuboid *contact me* 14:44, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

Clone Wars WikiEdit

I have an sorta OK from the admin: [1]. Is that OK? -- Evanf (talk) (blog) (contribs)

  • I don't see anything there saying he's given you the OK. I need to see him outright say it. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 15:53, September 3, 2011 (UTC)

CzechOut Edit

This user has been drastically rude at (Doctor Who Answers). He swore at me (calling me a b******) and said I wasn't fit for adminship. This is wrong, I am fit for it. But him swearing at me is unacceptable. Please review this situation. I blocked him by the way. But still. BroadcastCorp (talk | contribs) 13:41, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

  • If you've blocked him then there's nothing that I would need to review, as you've already taken care of it. It's a local matter that needed a local admin, and you did what you needed to do. :) - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 16:27, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Actually now he's unblocked. And User:The Thirteenth Doctor blocked me. This is unfair. He blocked me because I had "abuse of powers" or whatever that means. He also blocked me for an unreasonable amount of time, which was five years! 2015 is my time to return editing there. Please review this again please.

Here is the Yes: (Finally)


Thanks for your help! -- Evanf (talk) (blog) (contribs)

  • Again, that's not what he said. He said he would give you rights once he was eligible to become a bureaucrat. If you want me to give you the rights, he needs to agree to that. Please tell him that you've been talking to me and that I can give you the rights now, and that I will only do so with his permission. Thanks. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 16:53, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

Mistake Edit

You've made a mistake on promoting GrouchMan. GrouchMan should not be promoted when hes blocked on 2 wikis. The wikis hes blocked in is Muppet Wiki and Harry Potter Wiki and hes not eligable to request rights so could you demote the user you promoted in Oscar the Grouch Wiki please?Terrific joker 01:58, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

  • He was given admin rights on Oscar the Grouch Wiki nearly a year ago. In that time, I don't know of a complaint that has been made against him. Because of that, I won't demote him. If you have a specific issue with how GrouchMan is performing as the admin/bureaucrat of the wiki, please send it to Special:Contact. Thanks. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 02:13, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
I agree that he should have Oscar the Grouch Wiki, as both blocks in question: July 13, 2009 on Muppet Wiki and May 7, 2010 on Harry Potter are over a year ago. My question is why are you "The Joke Master" trying to remove his promotions?  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  02:26, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
Yes thats true. It says "You have not been blocked on another Wikia project" on the adoption page and he has failed to qualify it so therefore he should have his rights removed.--Terrific joker 02:41, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
They're guidelines, not rules. If a qualified candidate appears that doesn't meet all of the requirements, we can wave them—as we should. It's about the spirit of the guidelines, not the letter of the law. Like I said, if you have a specific complaint about his conduct as an administrator, please send it to Special:Contact. It's time to move this off of Community Central. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 02:51, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
Alright then.--Terrific joker 02:55, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Brandon, just saying that, how it would say on a userpage: "Admin" or "Chat Moderator", could you please make bureaucrats and rollbackers appear as well? Thank you. themoticon-0159-music.gif Mystery UkuleleMan | Talk | 00:38, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

Change admin to founder Edit

Hello, my old account which founded Autopedia was Dfegg. As you can see it says "Founder". My new account is now Rayous, but it simply says "Admin". I would like you to change Admin on Rayous to Founder, so users can know I founded the wiki. thanks. --Rayous 16:06, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hi. Unfortunately that's not something we change, as "founder" is a technical designation and not a user rights group. Dfegg is the account that founded the wiki, so that's what is listed as founder. Sorry. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 16:32, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

The Zombie Farm Wiki AdoptionEdit

The thing is that when I asked Sam Wang, he did not reply for 1 week. And jens ingels, almost all of her edits are back in april. She stopped for 5 months and came back when I told her too. However she said to Sam Wang and ZombieFarmXmorneufan (admin) that she won't edit much still because her iPod is broken, and she is concentrating on the Lengendary Wars Wiki.

Can we lock Profile Pages?Edit

Hi Brandon, I am Pinklilac. I want to know if we can somehow lock our profile pages so no-one can edit them. Is this possible? Thanks!

Pinklilac 13:43, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

  • An admin can do it for you, but I would advise against it. Page protection should only be done as a reaction to vandalism, not as a preventative measure. If your page has never been vandalized, I would suggest keeping it unprotected. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 14:04, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

No offense, butEdit

Do you get paid for the things that you do here in Wikia, like maintaining, and how do apply to be a helper, by the way, they have not edited for 3 days now, so could you grant me the adminship soon? I have reached 60 edits!!!

United Wikis 12:09, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hi. Yes, I am a contracted employee of Wikia. Helpers are also contracted employees (some paid, some not) and are hired via our hiring page. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 04:24, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

How to get a family tree and other templates?Edit

Hi there! I have noticed there are many templates missing from the Demonata Wiki and was wondering how to get them. There is no admin on this wiki either, so I had to turn to you. Thanks!

Pinklilac 12:44, September 29, 2011 (UTC)

P.S. The Family Tree one is urgent!

  • Hi. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Those are custom templates that don't come default with a wiki. If you've seen them on another wiki before, the best thing to do would be to ask an administrator on that wiki for help. You could also ask here in our Community Central Forum. Good luck! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 04:23, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

Admin Edit

Hey its the 30th of Sep. No notification yet - but is it alright for the bearucrats rights? Illume 15:05, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Sorry for the delay. I'll get back to you tomorrow! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 04:21, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hi. Sorry again for the delay. I've been really busy the last few days so I haven't gotten back to your request. :( I've made a note to get to it tomorrow. Sorry again! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 06:07, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Thats alright no need to rush Illume 15:45, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hi. I had forgotten that we archived your request, since it was closed. Have you agreed to this? If so, then since it's a new request then this will still have to wait a little bit longer. We get to new requests in the order that they're received, and we have quite a number of requests before that (we have a bit of a backlog that we'll be working to push through quickly). It shouldn't be too long, but I just wanted to make sure you were aware. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 07:47, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, im aware and im trying to make him cancel it, i forgot to tell him of the progress in becoming an admin and he made i request. Ill ask him to cancel it. Illume 12:54, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Heres the conversation with him . Here Illume 12:57, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Glee Team Wiki Edit

Oh, which wiki I'm referring too. Honestly, it says Ive only got one message from you, so, I'll just ask here, The wiki Im changing is Glee Team Wiki to Special Glee Wiki. The web URL is from to LiveOutLoud

Glee Team Wiki 2 Edit

Yes, they agreed! LiveOutLoud

Problem - nasty userEdit

The User Sam Wang in the Zombie Farm Wiki is always making pages wherein the language is not formal, has spelling errors, and has wrong punctuation. It has also non-enyclopedic way of writing such as 2nd person point of view, like "you must...", and informal terms, like "you need a bit of luck". There is not an admin to report to, that is why I am asking for an adoption request. BTW, Jens Ingels for some reason stopped editing for 1 week. She is not a previous admin anyway...

Why Edit

Would you break my adminship on logopedia? That wasn't nice to do because i haven't abused my rights. Just like what DaNASCAT did on Banjo-Kazooie wiki when i had my Ghosty account. That is not fair. You can get serious trouble with wikia for that. You even let him delete silly/joked messages on those 2 wikis. You can't revoke my rights for it. This is why i get mad for that because i don't like it. He even deleted a lot of joked messages that which made one of the admins in Banjo-Kazooie get swirls on their pupils in their eyes. I had to make them dizzy so that they can try hard to guess what the message is. But according to it i will have to sneak another wiki and contribute there longer so that i can be sneaked to adminship so i'm not demoted anymore.Terrific joker 02:40, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

  • I have already answered this question on your Logopedia talk page. The rights will not be restored. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 04:27, October 5, 2011 (UTC)
Well thats because you screwed it up. Now i'm trapped from re-granting my rights. Now i have to find another wiki and sneak into that group after i make enough edits without being banned.--Terrific joker 22:47, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

Are you a witch? Edit

Your avatar seems to appear that way. Somebody told me that the force was really just a conspiracy concocted by magic and all the starship troopers were the witch army. It all makes sense now

Hello Brandon.Edit

Hello Brandon.

I've been a keen user on this wiki for the past year on many different communities, but I have resently discovered a wiki ideally made for assualting and hurting other people.

This wiki ( is designed to target people these group of girls dislike. They have created a 'Burn Book' ( to list all this people, one of them being me. Their list will soon expand. I and many othe users would appreciate it immensely if you would delete this Wiki to stop further hurt in the future, just as the did to me.

Thank you.

I wasn't looking for help. I want to help wikia by becoming and admin!

JosephAsherFord 15:18, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

hey Brandon, i have contacted you before with a similar problem but this time i need some serious help and i hope you can provide it. now let me tell you first this is a long story and im gonna try to make it as short as possible XD. so, one day i went to the hunger games wiki and i saw someone wrote a fan-fiction so of course, i read it. i said my opinion, now im gonna be honest with you, it wasnt the nicest comment in the world. it wasnt a terrible comment but it also wasnt very nice. they all said they wanted to ban me (like 10 different users said that) and i told them they couldnt because the policys dont say i cant say my opinion, only to realize the wiki didnt have ANY policys written. so i decided to go on their chat and try to help them. i asked for the name of one of their admins but everyone just yelled at me and said they wont tell me because of my rude comment. after a lot of very rude comments towards me, i saw one that said "i want to hunt you down and beat your ass" so i replied EXACTLY like this. "as a citizen of the united states of america, the second ammendement of our constiution states that if you come onto my property intending to cause me physical harm, i have my rights to discharge a firearm towards you" i came on the next day to see i was banned for 2 weeks (the ban ends november 8th) for "threatining to shoot someone" and the other user got of clean, not even a verbal warning. for about a week they started coming to another wiki im on and left me rude messages on my talk page their also. they got warnings for it of course, but i was still upset. that night i found another hunger games wiki but it was for role-playing. after a day i found out it was a sister wiki from the original hunger games wiki. so of course, i got MORE rude messages. i just put up with it for a couple days but yesterday, after another rude message form an anonymous user i wrote a blog their saying i couldnt take it anymore, because i did everything in my power to fix what i did. a few minutes before i wrote this message i got another ruse comment from a user that says "Skyandbray, take a hint and leave this wiki and the main wiki. Nobody likes you, so get off. There's an opening for an admin on the other wiki, and if I can get it, my first move will be to ban you forever IF you do anything else that is hurtfull to Effie or anyone else on the wiki. We've had enough of you being mean to all of us. Oh yeah, and chances are anyone else who wants to be an admin will do the same as me. So either change your attitude, or please leave." her userpage their is i dont know if you can or will do something about it, but i can not take it anymore. it has recently effected my out-of-wikia- life and im just sick of it. the admin their has respectedly decided to stay out of it, which i dont blame him for, but i just cant hang on anymore. can you help me with this, please?:{D its a mustache :{D Skyandbray 21:46, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

How to Block Edits on WikiEdit

Hi Brandon! I'm Jessie1010! I'm an admin and bureacrat on the Jessie Disney Channel Series! Wiki. I had a question for you. Lately, on the wiki, there has been a lot of vandilisim. People have been vandilising pages and putting rude comments. I was wondering if I would be able to block all edits except for me and my co-admin, FakeWiki (I'm FakeWiki, it's my second account). Since FakeWiki and I created the wiki, I think we should be able to block all the other edits from anyone else and that only FakeWiki and I should be able to edit or any other admin that comes along. It is our wiki. Can you help me do this? Is it possible? Please help me! I don't want anyone editing things that I don't want to be edited and putting things on the wiki that I don't want on the wiki. It would be too hard to block every single person. I just don't want ANYONE editing on the wiki except for the admins. Please respond ASAP! Thank you!

Well i'm good right now and metting the requirements for the creation and thought of ideas. Also i haven't been banned from any wiki because i am a good contributor and reports bad contributors.

I have come to you to ask if you could make me or another user on the Storybrooke wiki an admin because the founder, Perry, who I hope will be back soon, has a busy life right now.

American Horror Story Wiki Edit

A request and a couple questions:

The request
A namespace alias on American Horror Story Wiki from Project to "AHS:".
As for the questions
  • Is it possible to use high resolution favicons (aka "apple-touch-icon") on Wikia, or is that something MediaWiki hasn't gotten around to yet?
  • Speaking of Google, is it a Terms of Use problem to add a "+1" button next to the Facebook "Like"? It can be done by JS/CSS, but is there a deeper problem in doing so? The Facebook "Like" wouldn't be removed, but it would be supplemented.

Bureaucrats Edit

I was trying to give me roll back rights and messed up and took away my Bureaucrats rights. There are no other Bureaucrats and I am the site owner. can you please re-promote me? --Frederick 23:26, December 5, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hi. I've re-added your bureaucrat rights, and I've removed the rollback rights. Rollback is part of the administrator user group, so you don't need a redundant user group. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 23:58, December 5, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! That was a pretty major fail on my part --Frederick 00:02, December 6, 2011 (UTC)


I would like to adopt a site but one of the rules says you must wait 60 days...The Founder hasn't been on since Oct. 26 (Founder). <---I just adopted a different site about 3 days ago...Do I have to wait 60 days or is it possible to promote me to admin for about 50 days? The site is --Frederick 21:47, December 6, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hi. Sometimes we waive the 60 day rule down to 30 days for exceptional and active candidates. If you ask me again after 30 days, I can review the wiki and see if you can be given admin rights there sooner. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 02:36, December 7, 2011 (UTC)
My friend and I will have the site built up and ready WAY before 30 days and ready to promote it. Is it possible to do it before 30 days? --Frederick 00:58, December 8, 2011 (UTC)
It's got to be a couple of weeks. The idea is to show that you're not collecting wikis and that you're actively contributing to the wiki you want to adopt over a long period of time. 30 days is a good marker to shoot for. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 03:15, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

Transferring contributions? Edit

Hello, Mr. Rhea. You recently renamed a user on the Inuyasha wiki, and I was quite suprised since I had no idea that this could be done. Had I known, I would surely have undertaken that route rather than what I actually did, which was to create a new account and redirect the user and user talk page to my new account. However, while that did suit my purposes, I still left over 500 contributions behind. So I was wondering, while I've already created an account and everything (so it's too late to move my old account), would it be somehow possible to transfer my old contributions onto my current account? The more I think about it, the more far-fetched of an idea it seems, yet I ask nonetheless in the hopes that I will get an affirmative response. Please let me know if there is anything that can be done. Thank you sincerely for your time and assistance.--Suzaku 朱雀Maze Castle 03:03, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hi Suzaku. Unfortunately it's not possible for us to transfer your contributions. Sorry! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 03:16, December 8, 2011 (UTC)
  • To be helpful to Brandon,all you gotta do is go to your new account and link your old one to your new one.(Hangingmanpeter0 13:48, December 8, 2011 (UTC))

Increase popularityEdit

Hi, I'm Fishybuz and I'm an admin on The Journey of Magic Wiki. As there are only 2 users on this wiki (My friend Blacksworn and myself), please may you help us increase are popularity. We're both only 14, so we dodn't have enough money to make our wiki popular through google. Please could you mention this note to the other staff and please could you consider helping us.

Thanks, Hi, I'mChaos Fish. Check out my Talk Page! 04:48, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Fishybuz. Sorry for the delaying in getting back to you. There are a bunch of things you can do to help gain popularity for your wiki, including on Google—all for free! The best thing to do to attract users is to keep building your wiki. The longer and more interesting your pages are, and the more links they have to one another, the better your wiki will rank in search engines. This means that people who are interested in the topic of your wiki can find you when they search much easier.
Once you have 200 pages on the wiki, you can qualify for a Wikia Spotlight, which will advertise your wiki on similar wikis. You can see what spotlights look like by scrolling down to the bottom of my talk page (or any other page) and looking under “Around Wikia’s network.” Click here for more details.
A lot of wikis have also reached out to their users and potential users by creating Facbeook and Twitter profiles and friending or following users. This will allow people to keep track of your wiki on their social networking websites.
Be sure to also check out our Founder & Admin Central, where you can talk to other wiki founders and admins and get a lot of great advice for building and managing your wiki. We even have a page for wikis that need editors here, so that's something you can also post on.
For other ideas on promoting your wiki, check out our advice pages here.
Good luck with your wiki. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 21:55, December 20, 2011 (UTC)


Hello, first of all wanted to say that I am Brazilian and I am using the translator, some thingsmay be hard to understand! XD I would like your help !!!!!!!! T-T I was trying to load an image in infobox for this article here:

As you can see the infobox image contains no (obvious) Until then I used the COMMONS to load the image and it worked:

This is because there appears when I click a link to copy and paste in the "image" of theinfobox (a wiki Bakuman is mine) But now another wiki it does not work. Why? And where should I put the picture?? What are the locations?



  • Hi there. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Unfortunately I'm not the best person to ask when it comes to this type of coding. The best place to ask would be in our Community Central Forum, where users with a lot of experience with infobox coding will be able to give you a hand. Good luck! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 22:03, December 20, 2011 (UTC)


Hey, I'm Drew1200 and I send in a lot of CheckUser requests for the Lego Message Boards Wiki. I was wondering if CheckUser for someone on our wiki (not necessarily me) would be something you guys would consider or not. I'm just asking because we have major duplicate account problems, and I thought I should know before I tried to start a discussion with the admins on whether we should request it or not. :)


Would you mind responding to my message? :P


  • Hi Drew. Sorry for the delay. I didn't notice your message until now! Can you send this request to Special:Contact? You can put my name in the subject header or say "Assign to Brandon" or something like that, and that way it'll get to me. I can then talk it over with the rest of the community team. I don't know what the answer will be since CheckUser is a powerful tool that's not usually given out, but we can consider it. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 22:05, December 20, 2011 (UTC)
That's OK! We'll probably wait awhile, because the responses for CheckUser have been pretty quick, thanks, though! :) Drewlzoo(talk)


im Obi wan masterexxx10 from star wars battlefront wiki I am here for a help on how to customize my name link just like this Anakin Skyobiliviator Talk Moff Rank Bar Blog

Anikin skyobiliviator is my friend from my wiki but how should I customize my name link just like that Obi wan masterexxx10 20:33, December 19, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Obi wan! If you want it to look exactly the same, only with your name, use this:

<span style="background-color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(center top , rgb(139, 0, 0) 35%, rgb(0, 0, 0) 65%); border-width: 1px 0pt 1px 1px; border-style: solid none solid solid; border-color: gray -moz-use-text-color gray gray; -moz-border-radius-topleft: 1ex; -moz-border-radius-bottomleft: 1ex;"><span style="-moz-border-radius-topleft: 1ex; -moz-border-radius-bottomleft: 1ex;">'''[ <span style="color: gray;">Obi wan masterexxx10</span>]''' </span><span style="background-color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(center top , rgb(139, 0, 0) 35%, rgb(0, 0, 0) 65%); color: rgb(255, 255, 255); border: 1px solid gray; -moz-border-radius-bottomleft: 1ex; -moz-border-radius-topleft: 1ex;">[ <span style="color: rgb(204, 204, 204);">Talk</span>] </span><span style="background-color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(center top , rgb(139, 0, 0) 35%, rgb(0, 0, 0) 65%); color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">[ Moff Rank Bar] </span><span style="background-color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(center top , rgb(139, 0, 0) 35%, rgb(0, 0, 0) 65%); color: rgb(255, 255, 255); border: 1px solid gray;">[ <span style="color: rgb(204, 204, 204);">Blog</span>] </span></span>

That will produce this:

Bureaucrat rights Edit

Hi Brandon Rhea, it's me again. Could you quickly pop over to Halo Fanon and remove bureaucrat rights from RelentlessRecusant? He's long retired from the administration and it seems no one has arranged to do it properly. I dropped him a message awhile ago to remove the rights himself, but it seems he hasn't been on the wiki for awhile. Thanks! I am in this world, but not of it.

Question on captcha's Edit

Ok, thanks for the info :)



I've recently been editing the Fortresscraft wikia (I'm one of the game developers) and am on good terms with the admins, because of this I have been promoted up to admin status. I'm concerned about the potential for spam on the wiki, some people aren't exactly friendly towards us :(. We do (or did) have another wiki elsewhere but it has been bot spammed to being practically useless and I do not wish for the same thing to happen again.

I would love to stick a captcha on the sign up. First of all, is this possible? and if so, do I have permission as a standard admin to do this? I don't think I can contact the original founder as he has been inactive.

Any help is much appreciated :)

Andyr00222 20:24, January 15, 2012 (UTC)

A CAPCHA at signup wouldn't work because the spammers would go to another wiki to create the account - you'd also probably need server-level access to install such a capcha (if you used javascript the bots would just disable javascript). -- RandomTime 20:35, January 15, 2012 (UTC)


Can you help? I have Template with this line.

Is there a way to add a link to the picture. I've try 2-3 different way but they didn't work. This is a chapter template and the picture is the main character. I what to jump to the BIOS of the character if clicked on.

Otherwise I'm going to have to put a link under the picture.
