Sorry if you are the wrong person for this, you were just the first staff I found in the wiki activity. I wanted to ask if there is a statue of limitations when it comes to reporting things? For eg if I noticed a comment or an action that is a violation from someone who is very much still active, only he she or they did this say ovr a year prior, would I still be allowed to report it? Im asking because what was a rule yesterday may not be a rule today, and vice versa.
and if there is a statue of limitation, how long is it? what is the cut off time?
You're free to report anything you find that doesn't seem right. Simply contact Fandom Staff with that form. Just know that if it's old, they may not take action on it - but you're free to report it for them to review and decide. Don't forget to include links!

If that is the case, they are pretty much sending out a message that says if you want to break bad, dont get caught. Byt thanks for the answer buddy.
If the infraction/transgression is part of a pattern of behaviour, there is no statute of limitations. If it was one ill-advised occurrence and the user has since been a model user, then there would not be much need for action. Anything in between would be investigated and judged accordingly. Leaving a message on this message wall does not actually count as "reporting it formally". For that, you should log a ticket with the help desk
We don't normally assign wiki managers to such small wikis, so your wiki would have to grow quite a bit before we could even consider your request. If you have not already joined, please consdier joining our Discord where you can get help from other users.
it's not a burn, it's a practical decision. We have very few wiki managers and very many wikis. We must draw a line somewhere. Also, just because a wiki does not have a dedicated wiki manager does not mean we are not willing to help.

It was an obvious burn Game Widow. It was such an epic burn that even MY skin is starting to peel from being in such close proximity to this most epics of burns.
lol I say this in jest of course =]..
But about your man power problem....
Now feel free to say this is a stupid idea and possibly global ban me for life, but what if you used the smaller, more pathetic fandoms as like training wheels for potential communiy managers and make them take on the position for about 5 - 10 smaller fandoms at a time? If y'all consider them to be so small to not need one, then it probably wont even be that much of a workload for the selected person?
I'm a bureaucrat on the Death Battle Fanon Wiki, where ex-WM Shrev64 was previously assigned to. The community, including the staff, really liked the idea of Wiki Managers and Shrev has been a huge help to our community overall, so it was sad to see him depart.
Many of the other admins, including Big the cat 10 (Who leads the admins) wanted to me ask if we could get another Wiki Manager. As far as I know, the DBF should qualify; it has 22,000 pages, somewhere around 600 active users (This is an estimate since Special:Statistics returns -1), and consistently sits in the Top 200 Fandom wikis by WAM score. Can you let me know if we qualify for another WM?
Hello. On the wiki that I moderate, we are having problems with users and the Discussions feature. We have been seeing more rule breakers recently, as well as more serious issues. I have been making more tickets recently, but it takes a bit of time to file the ticket once we block the offending user. It would be great if you can help us with these issues.

I'm currently running a semi-large wiki but really want to start doing some outside initiatives. Would you be able to drop me a contact so we can talk about it over ideally email but wherever really? We've got time on our side but having a one-on-one chat would be excellent so I can get my point across without spoiling too much to anyone to finds me here on Community Central.
The admin to a wiki I frequent is seemingly MIA and has been for several years. Currently, anyone is allowed to create or edit pages, but only the admin is allowed to delete pages. Because of this, pages have been created that are useless with no way of removing them. Is there a way you can contact the admin or replace the current admin with someone who is active on the page?
