  • Hey Icier, I hope you don’t mind being my point of call when I need it XD I have messaged staff on what I think should happen, but since they are away for the weekends I hope you have something that can cleanse a bubonic plague or two.

    Provided staff are able to see it as evidence as well, could you please delete the problem content from the actual wiki history? Every image, page, down to the letters of one, two, and three garbage accounts, no traces of it must appear anywhere in the history, deleted pages, nowhere.

    On the pages there was a particularly unpleasant image but they were doing it along the lines of “I added something controversial, give me some attention” which is absolutely heaving. I personally feel that I deserve a prize for not chundering everywhere. Nothing worse than some rebel mad person out to be shockingly rebellious…

    Rather than have these junk accounts remain as globally blocked can you also change their display images to love hearts, and their names changed to “I love Yaoi”, “Yaoi is my life” and “I only go to sleep to dream of Yaoi”.

    • Vandalism has been reverted/deleted now. The accounts blocked as well. If there is something I missed, please let me know.

      As far as deleting the edits from history, there is no way easy tool that does that currently. Staff have access to revision delete and suppress revision, but they don't use it on request typically. If you already sent the Special:Contact, it's worth seeing what they say if you already asked.

      All the bad images are deleted at least. They appeal in Special:Log/delete and I'm not sure if that's a problem. Technically, as an admin you can "delete history edits" but it's not recommended to do so. It requires deleting and then undeleting the revisions you want to restore. It comes at a cost of "view X deleted edits" in page history every time you access it.

      Lastly, I can't rename accounts nor am I able to change their avatar images :( It's often best to just ignore them and not worry about it. Trolls are everywhere and at some point every wiki has to deal with them. Good news wise, everything should be reverted and other than history, nothing should be left!

    • Thank you, as for removing edits/uploads from the history and special delete, the bat excrement insanity about Joseph Goebbels was absurd, some nutjob ramblings about feminists that was funny. Nazi content may not get comfortable not even in the deleted log. Did you see the other images? Those are definitely not appearing in Special:Log/delete at all for someone to come across later. It is not a case of staff not using this revision delete and suppress thing on request, those images are being scrubbed from the wiki utterly, plain and simple. 

      Personally don’t think it would hurt for you to gain the ability rename accounts, and change display images! In fact that would be handy since there is also an account somewhere that whilst globally blocked still has the problem name on full display XD

      Na, worrying about it, ignoring it, no the only answer is that those little rascals must be disciplined. At any rate if the accounts are there to stay I must insist to staff on name and image changes. I like my ideas though always open to suggestions. Besides, those aren’t those people’s accounts now, they are ours and we can do what we see fit with them. Cleansing something putrid and making it fair, we can be saviours for these sinkhole accounts yet! Ha,

      Still thank you for seeing to this, I’ll just wait for the special contact thing since I had some questions there and must be getting the best outcome for the content being fully removed, and some delightful name changes as well, too!

  • Hello Icy, How are you? Can I have a minute of your attention? Well, I know that the Forum tool has been removed a long time ago. I was wondering if you have the possibility of me getting a clean wiki or even used with this function. Is there such a possibility?

    • Well, the commenting part isn't exactly the same as here. Wiki-style forums replicates the classic version, where users edit the page as they would an article, leave a comment, and sign it with "~~~~". There is no comment or reply box like there is on CC.

      I edited the page you linked and left a comment, to show you how it works

    • I Understand, I'll see if I can find another way to add a page of the type that i need. This is far from what I need, but thank you very much for your intent.

  • I know blocks arent discussed with third parties, and I'm not asking for that, I'm just asking who blocked Gilben and GlowingNormality.

  • Hey Icier,

    thanks for cleaning up the spam posts on the Magic Arena Wiki. Very much appreciated! :)

    As it happens we had several posts similar in style and also linking to gamersdecide.com on the Magic: The Gathering Wiki too. At that time were not quite sure if those were spam or new users trying to find their way around.

    Thought I'd bring that to your attention -- in case it's some kind of spam "campaign". Mentioned posts happened on March 2, 2019 by user Rittsy24 and on March 4, 2019 by user MTGAuthor.

    I'll leave everything unchanged until I'll hear back from you. Of course, in case you need more info from me, keep me posted, please! :)

    Cheers and have a good one!

    • No worries, you are welcome!

      Yes, those creations on Magic: The Gathering Wiki are spam done by spam bots. They have been deleted now, thanks for showing me.

      Any time new accounts come along and have external links, it's more than likely to be a spam bot. :) so good to report them so we can check it out!

  • Hi Icier, through investigation some of my fellow staff members on the TTTE Wikia have found that the user "Wattsj528" is also a known sock on Wikipedia itself. Fandom was able to place an ip block on our wiki but they appear to be returning.

    Current blocked sock: https://ttte.fandom.com/wiki/User:Wardt78

    I'm not sure if you're able to place for ip blocks on this guy because quite honestly we are at wits end.

    Thanks, Cinder.
