  • Hi, I'm sorry to bother you, and I know chat evidence isn't exactly reliable, but there is someone named President George Washington seemingly going around on wikis and sending links to this change.org petition. https://www.change.org/p/craig-l-palmer-unblock-me-from-wikia

    My wiki is the Animal Jam Wiki, I believe this may not be the only wiki being affected here? Furthermore, in this thread, http://lostmedia.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:48174 it's suggested this person is trying to circumvent a global block.

  • According to the "short pages"/expand these articles thing, I find out that ALL pages of a wiki are considered as "short". For example, I found out that pages like this: http://bloons.wikia.com/wiki/Bloons_TD_Battles/Strategies has 100K+ bytes, but still considered as a "short page". Is it intentional or a global mistake? If it is a mistake, maybe pages more than 2,500 bytes should be no longer considered as "short pages"?

    Also, I have a suggestion, for edit summaries, where it says "Minor edit", it should say "Minor edit(s)", because one contributor can make multiple minor edits in one page. Just saying, anyways, hopefully you consider my suggestions!

    • Hey - Short pages just lists pages that contain the fewest characters in ascending order. This means that it will list from the smallest to the largest - including that Strategies page.

      As for the minor edit - in a wiki, an edit is considered a change to a page after they save - so multiple minor edits can be tagged as such for each edit summary. However, if you feel it's not right, you can suggest this change to Community Staff at Special:Contact/feedback.

      In the future, it's best to ask the first question in our forums - it'll get more views and faster responses :)

  • Hey Craig. I have a research paper published on the wiki of the university I went to: http://utpb.wikia.com/wiki/UTPB_Wiki. Rebranding the university's wiki (which was built at direction of the literary chair) as a "Fandom" from a Wikia will lessen its academic import. Where I was previously able to reference the paper in my resume/CV, having a "Fandom" site for an academic reference is not going to fly. Do this, and UT will no longer recommend its students to publish, nor its academic societies (i.e. ACS, ANS, etc.) to post, with a site labeled a fandom. Is there no other category that will prevent alienating academic and scientific uses of what will no longer be Wikia? Fandoms aren't the only users of Wikias and there must be something you can offer academics to port their pages away from Wikia to, in order for authors and editors like me to keep a level of legitimacy and integrity for its publishing students. So, what do you suggest?

    • Hey Gethralkin. We won't be renaming wikis, so UTPB Wiki will still be known as UTPB Wiki as opposed to UTPB Fandom. So you should still be able to reference the wiki in your resume/CV.

  • Dear, Craig, I applaud your tolerance! I've read a few communications to you and some of them are a bit colorful. I'm wondering, where does your courage come from to entertain these colorful requests from a fellow, who wants to be in "admin" come from? Why as a CEO, did you put yourself on the frontline to hear, what common folks are saying? (Very few real professionals would waste their time. So What makes you, listen to folks, (fearlessly I might say)? Where do you see the future of Wikia going. (On the Downlow: you know you are in the classrooms of IT students.)

  • I guess no one ever asked you, but how do you become an admin...if you do become one, do you also become an admin on ALL other wikis.

    What I request you to consider about doing is explain the basics to me(like stuff like will an admin or staff work in a building with you or something) and also help me achieve a rank amongst you...Or at least introduce me to community central. I am not demanding simply asking you to think about allowing me to request that you consider doing what I said above...Also if you could link me a short course to coding, I would be ver happy!

    Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Contribute as if you were to learn forever after :D-Ambreint

    • I know very little about coding, so I can't help you there. Also, do you mean Wikitext, or CCS and JS?

    • If you're referring to this wiki, Craig doesn't handle that. I suggest you make an account then give meaningful and helpful contributions here, and one day Staff will invite you to join the team.
