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.
I'm extremely concerned about recent actions taken to take down wikis that exist to compile scenes considered fetish, ecchi and otherwise 'inappropriate' by some unknown false morality. Several wikis have either been shut down or suddenly told, without adequate chance for discussion, that they will be shut down. This has not been posted formally on any part of the community site, and the only explanations received have been questionable claims of going 'family friendly'. I am using that terms in quotes because any traditional application would include media that contain graphic violence or sex, which applies to featured wikis such as Wookieepedia (I will point out there is literally a page on that wiki about breasts).
If Fandom is insistent on pursuing this course of action (which is as of right now pointlessly excluding people who were able to share passions on a shared resource) I would please ask that you at least better communicate why this is happening and post formal information about these new policies on the community wiki.
Hi Cavalier One. Thank you for your message on Wiki Grayskull. I am interested in becoming an administrator, though I still have quite a lot to learn about editing wikia, Especially when it comes to talk pages. I can never get the hang of those signatures. Can I ask your advice if I need any help?
I know this won't change my block on Wookiepedia, but I just wanted to say that I'm sorry for what I had on my talk page. I can see now that that was indeed a very bad thing and that I shouldn't have even thought about saying it. Sorry for causing you the extra work.
I'm sure that Fred will be aware of any messages that you leave for him as soon as he returns to the Disney Parks Wiki. I can leave an additional message for him, but if he has not responded to a message that you have left for him, I can only assume that he has yet to see it.
