Just telling u I'm going to contribute to the wiki so I can adapt it but is there a certain amount of edits I need I want to adapt it bc all the wiki staff have been inactive there for about a year also the wiki is getting vandalized a lot so I want to adapt it to keep it up
I am a bureaucrat of the Feral Wiki. A little while ago, I sent an e-mail to FANDOM support asking about wiki managers as one of my staff members had brought it up to me. I was unsure about requirements as I was unable to find a clear answer and it seemed as though the person that I would have to contact, JoePlay, was currently on leave. I got a message from FANDOM support today telling me that you were the person to contact about this situation.
So, here's my initial question: What are the requirements for a wiki manager, does my wiki qualify for one, and what would I have to do in order to get one?
We don't technically have a firm set of specific requirements. What were you hoping to get from a wiki manager that you are not currently getting? Generally speaking, we look for wikis that get a good amount of traffic, or that are expected to get a good amount of traffic in the near term. The wiki team can also help you simply on a per-project basis if you had something specific in mind that required our help without actually assigning a dedicated wiki manager.
Our team has been working continuously to optimize the experience for readers, including design enhancements, dozens of content page creations, and adding features & extensions. The game, Feral, is fairly new and content is being pumped out every day. We’ve also very recently heard that the game may be going into open beta soon, meaning that thousands of more people will be able to play and many of them will likely come to the wiki for information (the wiki is fairly well-known among Feral’s official Discord server and the game’s developers have acknowledged its existence, occasionally giving us info about mechanics/what we’re allowed to share/etc). I think a wiki manager could be very beneficial to us as we’re constantly contacting FANDOM support to ask questions/solve issues, and from what I understand, a manager would be a good replacement for that.
I think rail was just guessing, as he says "probably", and I'm pretty sure he's right about not being able to request it since as far as I know the usergroup doesn't exist anymore.
Didn't contest that, but I just don't like Rail pretending to know it was for testing purposes while he obviously doesn't know. And for saying it was an old group, I already told Teteban on FR CC and that's precisely why I suggested him to contact Game Widow as I had absolutely no idea what it was for. And I like Fandom history too!
Oh well, I'm pretty sure what I am talking about. Just got a small insight into Fandom's repository and it looks like beta group was associated with devcookie permission loading beta features for testing only to people withing that group.
Old and not-so-great method of testing things but okay, I can understand it being used 10 years ago.
Rail's guess is as good as any. Back then, i was just a helper and would not have been privvy to that stuff anyway.
C'était une étiquette pour désigner les gens qui participaient à des experiences. Réf: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test_A/B
Hello. I registered myself again as Mr. Megadust 2 because my original account has been suddenly blocked across the FANDOM for no reason. Not only mine, but also Darkmaster7's, Xtreme Emperor's, Leobear's, WeirdWojak's and BrandonDarkOne47's. We all thankfully beg you or another staff to be able to do something, we tried contacting the FANDOM but we could do nothing. Please, we thankfully consider you to understand, we aren't trollers or vandals, we just got our accounts blocked from nowhere. I contacted you and Mira Laime so we can have more than one's help.
if you are already an admin, just go to Special:UserRights, put the username of the person you want to promote in the field and click the button, then a list of rights appears and you imply check off the rights you want to give and save.
sorry for the delay, i apparently have not set up my notifications correctly here
