Hi, Kirkburn, I need a little help regarding a user, and a Wiki. I’m not sure if your the right person to contact, so I’ll explain why in a min.
I am a author of a fan fiction
Almost a year ago(on September 17th), I started publishing chapters of a Jurassic World Fanfic, titled Malchom’s Woods. I first posted them on the Jurassic Park Wiki, and later, the Jurassic Park Fanon Wiki. Since then, I have compiled many articles regarding my story on the Fanon Wiki.
The novel has become pretty well known, and loves by people on the Wikis. That’s when the problems began:
I discovered over a week ago, by almost complete accident, a Wiki. It was called, “The Malchom’s Woods Wiki”. I checked it out, and found that a user had been uploading info, from the JPfanon wiki, to this fandom site. However, Inwas shocked to find they weren’t stealing content for their gain, but for fans; The user was crediting me for creating the novel, and the unmentioned tie-in stories.
The user goes by the name, MWFan109(MW is what I and fans call the story for short). They had just recently started the wiki, and had made two edits to the Madagascar Wiki. I was fine with this, until Insw how they had added images, and links to other sites, using them to describe characters, which, I already have images for. They never asked me, and never contacted me in any way...
I believe I did the right thing, but I need help with it
I was amazed, and kind of glad at the time, but I don’t want another Wiki. I already have enough stuff to put on one wiki, and I don’t think another ran by a user, who is adding their own info is good. I contacted them, asking them for rights, because I need to have them(I am the owner of the story.
Before I continue, I wanted to state I created a little copyright for the story, just incase someone thought about sterling the story, or do this. It’s a copyright with no ground, just there to keep it from being stolen. I created after someone did try to steal my story.
I asked them, but they never responded, and their activity is dead. I waited a week so to be fair with him/her. So I wanted to ask you if the Wiki be shut down? I don’t want want the user banned, they obviously were just showing their love to the novel. I would have contacted the Jpfanon Wiki Manager, but, I don’t think we have one.
Can this be done? I would really appreciate it. Here’s a list of links so you can read what’s there. Thank you.
Sweetie, like many of Staff, Kirkburn has a lot of pressing projects he's involved with. At any given minute he may or may not have the time to devote to you. But by using the links will send your issue to a group of Staff who are available and next in line to provide the sort of help you need. Including passing to those *best* for dealing with legal matters.
Best hurry before Friday and the Weekend, when most Staff are off, gets here and you have to wait until at least Monday….
Hi, I am an admin at The Challenge Fandom and was wondering why the bio and pictures for Frank Roessler's Page were deleted. Both his biography and photos came from MTV's websites and are public information. In fact every contestant's page contains their cast photo and official MTV biographies, similarly to Big Brother or Survivor Fandom, and am interested to know why his specifically is an issue. Thank you.
It's right there in Kirkburn's summary: "Removal requested for privacy. Please do not restore, thanks!"
That means that Mr Roessler or his authorized representative CONTACTED the FANDOM legal department and requested (or issued a DMCA Takedown Notice) for the info and image to be removed. There is no challenging that. It doesn't matter if some other site has or had it, if they are allowed to have it or not, WE were asked/instructed to remove it, so remove it we will.
Now, you're free to contact Fandom about it (because *privacy* was invoked and that means "don't talk about it in the open"), but I can't image the response from them being any different.
Hey. Could you unblock me? It's anti Sinistram Az. I did nothing wrong for being put under a range block. Could you change the ban so that only I am excluded from it? Please. i have never had any fowl intent under this acount. Please.
Hey. My name is Jack. I'm a friend of Yeshua, who you know is called Anti Sinistram AZ here. I don't give a damn about Fandom, or his stupid website but he just wants me to make this acount so that he can say something. Here he is:
Hey, Kikburn. I left a message on Yury's email 3 days ago and he has been ignoring me after giving really illogical reasons for calling me a troll, example, when I left Liberapedia, I told Proxima I was leaving, and he called that trolling for some reason, and then on Atheism, I made a thread of all of the troll messages I made on Liberapedia back when I got that IP ban from Sannse back in December on my anonymous acount, but I had a moral at the bottom of the message. I gave Yury reasons why that wasn't real trolling and he ignored me. I PROMISE. I never had any bad intent on FANDOM under this account and I promise that if you unblock me, that you I will not regret it and that I will only be on my website and on Community Central. Please George, please.
Hi, you can locally block a user only if you are an admin on the wiki in question. While you cannot prevent a single user from editing a specific page or thread only, admins or mods can close the thread (which will prevent any replies), or protect the page, which can either be set to prevent brand new users, or made editable only to admins or content moderators.
Hi Kirkburn, I chose to bother you about this since the Wikia Staff page says you're the Technical Support Lead.
On bully:Jimmy Hopkins, I tried to add five interlanguage links - german, spanish, russian, french and polish. The first three worked fine, the last two, created redlinks to "fr:" and "pl:" instead. When i tried to use Special:Contact, I was redirected to this page I've never seen before. It prompted me to log in, rejected the password I use for my Wikia account, and then told me my email was already in use and I couldn't sign up.
So I guess I have two questions. One, what's wrong with the page on my wiki and why aren't the interlanguage links working? And two, how are we supposed to use the new version of Special:Contact?
Regarding the new support site - it uses a completely separate account system to Fandom.com.
You don't have to log in to contact us there though - though logging into an account does allow you to manage your support requests online (rather than via email). You likely already have a basic account set up due to your previous support requests - you'll need to use that site's 'forgot password' process to gain access.
I am sending this on your wall instead of via email because I believe the email thread has been closed now. I hope this is OK.
The message thread that I notified you of has become active again. After a couple of days of peace, people are starting to comment again for no reason; it's spam now. Please can you close the thread, as I am not in that power?
