  • CzechOut, this is PowerRanger200. I'm begging you, Adopt JesseAndMike and be in charge. There are too many unnecessary articles that must be removed.

  • Hey, aside from the forum migration and larger issues over at TARDIS, which I'm sure you'll get to when you have the time, just want to let you know that in Discussions whenever someone tries to tag "Rose" it changes the tag to "Bimbo" for some reason. Shambala has already been made aware of this and has no idea how to fix it and suggested you as someone who might.

  • Hello, sorry for bothering you.



    I think I need help to adopt a Wiki Link . I've made a poll on it discussion feed asking if they'd like to see me being a moderator. I got 7 votes, amoung that 5 were postive and the other two was netural. 



    So, I made a adoption request, but, I'm unable to edit that page :( Whenever I tries to save the edits I've made, it's coming a pop up thing saying "The modification you tried to make was aborted by an extension hook" 



    I don't know what I did wrong, but, can you please deny my request to adoption. It's saying that I can't edit the form after submission. Can you deny this request and allow me to create another.



    Thanks in advance

  • What if nobody responds to the messages i send to try and present myself as an admin candidate? I only had one person out the 6 actual users respond, the rest were people adding nonsense pages

  • Hello, I am Plum Blossom

    I resently applyed to adopt the Jazmin Bean wiki. I was denied because I was admin on wikis that my friend needed help on and I retired on those wikis for personal reasons. Resently this post was been sent though fandom and the admin on the wiki is racist to people. I really do not think this is good behavior for an admin. I also was promoted to content moderator and I am really active there. Please contact me for more information.

    • The sort of thing you've pictured is a bit outside what would normally be a part of the adoptions process. Indeed, I'm not sure how closely it ties into the adoption request itself, since your denial was given without any knowledge of the pictured event. Also, since you removed this thread from my wall, it seems likely it's not a big deal anymore.

      However, if you remain bothered by the event, I suggest you ask for help from our Customer Support department, via this link: https://fandom.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    • I removed the this because I talked the the user and I found out that this post is fake. Someone photoshopped it and made it look like it was real. The admin plans to give me admin ship when I have enough edits on the wiki. So everything is really fine now :)

  • Heya, sorry to bother you. 

    Thanks for completing my adoption request. I completely understand what I should do but I have a few questions related to the next steps. 

    1. The Dogs and Puppies Wiki (of which the dog wiki is a duplicate of) is an older wiki with no discussions feature. It would make more sense to merge that into the Dog Wiki , right?

    2. Both wikis have active editors yet neither have active admins. Once the merger is complete, would it be alright to submit another adoption request?

    And I guess that's it. Thanks!

    • Okay, sure! 

      Here is the link for the Dog Wiki Merger convo-https://dog.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:Bookdog11/Wiki_Merger_Discussion

      Two out of the three consistently active editors at that time responded with their support. 

      Here is the link for the Dogs and Puppies wiki merger convo- https://dogs.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:Bookdog11/Wiki_Merging!

      If you were wondering why that was posted so early, it's because there were a lot of complications before I actually submitted the adoption request but it's all coming together now. Only one user has responded with their approval but the blog has been up for quite a while and nobody is against it. 

      So those are the blog posts! Lemme know if that's enough for a merger to happen.

    • Oh! I would also like to note that we would prefer to merge the Dogs and Puppies wiki into the Dog wiki for a few reasons.

      1. The Dogs and Puppies Wiki has lots of spam and OT pages.

      2. There are fewer pages to transport to the Dog Wiki as less than half of the pages have good info on the Dogs and Puppies wiki. 

      3. There are more active editors on the Dog WIki (I'm pretty sure). 

      And as I've said before, we've already marked the pages we would merge with a template. Thanks!

  • Hey,

    So, after reading your response to my adoption request, this question came into mind and I want to know how to handle it the next time I encounter something similar;

    If a user were to ever come onto the wiki I'm trying to adopt during x amount of time I have to wait between adoption requests, and posts things that don't belong on the wiki, what should I do and how do I stop them if they don't listen? 

    Thanks and hope you have a happy holiday.

    • Hi there :) In a real sense, your question is a little too hypothetical to answer. I don't really know what you mean by "things that don't belong on the wiki", and that makes it hard to give you a single answer.

      If by that you mean actual vandalism — pornography, hate speech and the like — then your best action is probably to contact the good people at SOAP and let them scrub away the offensive material.

      If, though, you mean stuff that is broadly on topic, but against your personal view of the wiki's subject, that's trickier. You'll have to decide how to handle things — and, really, that's a good test of an admin. Come down too harsh, and you might scare away an editor who would have been one of your greatest contributors.

      In such a case, I'd suggest your first step be to talk to the person and try to get them to understand your position. If you can work it out, you'll have passed a reasonable leadership test that will help ensure you get to adopt.

      "Stopping" the person should be a course of last resort.

    • I see, now. Thank you for the information. I'll keep the SOAP thing in mind.

      Also, when I said "things that don't belong on the wiki," I meant by a character or creature that might belong in one franchise that one wiki covers but doesn't belong to another franchise another wiki might be covering. So for example, if someone were to add Godzilla or Batman onto the Jurassic Park wiki or the Dr. Who wiki, that is what I meant. (By the way, would that be considered vandalism?)

      For context, the wiki I was trying to adopt is focused on Primeval (the TV show the Dr. Who Raptors from Dinosaurs on a Space Ship came from), and someone added several irrelevant pages, such as the Indominus rex from Jurassic World, onto the wiki. I've solved the issue as best as I can (via the Edit button), but I am kind of worried that something like this will happen again, especially with the wiki's bureaucrat being MIA for over 4+ years now. That is why I asked.

      Sorry for the confusion and thank you for answering my question. I hope you had a wonderful holiday break and I guess I'll see you in June.

    • Again, you're asking for broad definitions where none are possible. Would Superman on the I Love Lucy Wiki be vandalism? No, cause there was an episode that featured Superman. Would Superman on the Lord of the Rings Wiki be considered vandalism. I don't think so. I'd call it "inappropriate" at best — but even then, there may have been some parody featuring a crossover that could be considered marginally relevant.

      On a straight up, encyclopaedic wiki about Primeval, is it possible Jurassic Park dinosaurs might be inappropriate? Maybe. But if the wiki were about Fanon, the case would be less clear. Fanon wikis, by definition, live in very grey areas, and I think the most you could say is that you don't personally like someone else's view of the topic.

      Real vandalism involves things that violate Fandom's Terms of Use — pornography, hate speech, personal attacks, and the like. Just remember that vandalism is a highly-charged word, and it's a bit lazy. Best not to use it too often, and instead be very specific about what you find problematic.

    • I see. Well, the only reason why I used the term "vandalism" so loosely is because I didn't know how broad or narrow you and the people at Fandom use the term. Thank you for the clarification. I hope you have a good day.
