Thanks for the spamfighting Edit

Just saw your deletion on MyraPedia. Thanks for the work you do. --Gwyndon 14:26, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your message Gwyndon, you're most welcome. :) -- Manticore (talk) 14:31, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

Grizzly's e-mail Edit

I didn't? Strange, I thought Wikia had system-wide preferences... ah well, it's done. Shaur M. S. Grizlin 09:40, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Illogicopedia Edit

I know you're highly trained in fighting vandalism etc, but can you not revert the edits of the i.p. It's just that that particular i.p. happens to be three prominent members' (me included) school i.p. Revert edits by it on other wikis but please refrain from stopping it's edit on [|illogicopedia]. --Testostereich 18:36, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

I've replied here. -- Manticore (talk) 03:50, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Thirteen Knot Quipu Edit

This is a misspelling of Thirteen Knot Quipus and someone decided to change all of the pages containing Thirteen Knot Quipus to the misspelled one...please do not restore incorrect page names and items. -- 07:54, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

I assume you are referring to this edit. It's never a good idea to blank articles, especially without explanation. Doing so sets off alarm bells. If a duplicate page has been created, you can always redirect the page there (#REDIRECT [[Page]]).
Also, just in case you were unaware, Wikia utilises a shared user database, so you can log in with your FFXI Wiki username here. -- Manticore (talk) 08:00, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Even though you're an epic failEdit

You have a sexy accent. No sexual content intended. Mordillo 12:50, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

I love it when you drop by unannounced. :) -- Manticore (talk) 13:50, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Hey man Edit

Well hi. It's me User:George Skywalker. The admin of TESfanon. Recently I was visited by an outsider named Dagoth Ur, Mad God or something like that. This user wanted to become an admin while I knew nothing about him. For more info about the incident see my talk page. Inform me if you find anything useful. George Skywalker 19:44, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I don't know anything about this user either. Judge each request like this with common sense. Does this person need adminship? Have they got a history of positive contributions to the wiki? Does the community (or you) trust them to be an admin? If not, politely indicate that there are many tasks they can help with that don't require adminship. -- Manticore (talk) 06:04, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Sorry about the pages for deletion Edit

I made some mistakes here. I thought it was like Wikipedia and I created some articles. I now understand that those articles should go into a Wiki, like SNES and Battletoads articles. Feel free to delete it. Or wait till I move them to a related wiki, like wiki games. I am no spammer, just a new stupid user. :-0 Davichito 21:57, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

No worries! Lots of people make that mistake, which is why we allow them one week to move their content to an appropriate wiki. -- Manticore (talk) 04:02, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Delete request Edit

May I ask you to delete few spam pages?

I hope that I don't bother you too much.

G2mk 15:54, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

No trouble at all. I've deleted these and am checking for more now. -- Manticore (talk) 16:02, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
You are quicker than page refresh ;) Thanks. G2mk 16:32, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

IP Check Edit

Hi, I would like to ask you if you could help me with an IP check. If so, please see User talk:CatherineMunro#IP Check's talkpage. Thanks! {{SUBST:User:Bucurestean/HT2}} 16:58, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunately janitors don't have access to CheckUser, only Wikia Staff do. Catherine will be able to help you out, just be patient. :) -- Manticore (talk) 10:06, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
OK, thank you for informing me. {{SUBST:User:Bucurestean/HT2}} 10:23, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

What's your problem? Edit

Why is a wikia staffmember vandalising a wiki? I mean, don't you have anything better to do with your spare time? By the way, yes, this is a warning. Do it again and I'll see what I can do against you. Sgt pepper 14:47, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

PS, I'm know as Il Palazzo on the Oncyclopedia, the wiki you've vandalised Sgt pepper 14:49, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

for your information:

Hello Angela, i would like to call your attention to the latest disruptive actions of one of your janitors. Would you be so so kind as to ask him to stop his destructive behaviour. I think this proves that he is the one that is sabotaging and provoking, not me. His actions are the only reason i abandoned two wikis i founded myself and which made me really hate Wikia because you let a guy like him go unchecked and even make him semi-staff. I would like to ask you to tell this guy to let off. I don't know him. He has been harassing me ever since het picked that fight on

Tell him to stay away from me. This is an official complaint. if this is not the right way to complain, i will do it by Email. {{SUBST:Bruger:D. G. Neree/sig}} 14:56, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Perhaps it would have been best to confirm with me if this was actually my account? That wiki is not hosted by Wikia, nor is it listed on my interwiki matrix. Imposters are nothing new children; I have had them before at Wikimedia and other wikis. You can safely assume any vandal accounts do not belong to me. -- Manticore (talk) 15:03, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
I know better then to just trust anyone even if they're form Wikia... thew thing is I coulnd't find your IP to match the vandalist's with. Sorry for the inconvience {{SUBST:Gebruiker:Sgt_pepper/sig}} 15:12, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
I have checked te IP. i will tell you. You have been after me for too long now for no reason. Now it has been enough. You will stop your actions. {{SUBST:Bruger:D. G. Neree/sig}} 15:15, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Another thing is that the person was using a open proxy server so i will never be an 100% sure who it was {{SUBST:Gebruiker:Sgt_pepper/sig}} 15:19, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Second Life Wikia vandalism Edit

Hello, I'm Smiley Barry from Second Life Wikia. I am a usual contributor, and "janitor" of Second Life Wikia. (I check the Recent Changes often and my grid's [Teen Grid] pages for tidiness and change/revert where and when necessary) However, an anonymous user, which goes by the IP address, constantly vandalizes Second Life Wikia in various pages. (E.g.: Cheesepuff Barnard) I ask you to block this person, before he attempts further vandalism. He seems to track my reverts often, so every revert I do, he reverts back.

Smiley Barry 22:15, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Blocked and vandalism cleaned up. Thanks for the heads up. -- Manticore (talk) 02:34, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

hebrew uncyclopadiaEdit

I'm sysop there. i ask if you can give us 4th option to defence pages (now there are 3 options: totaly not protacte' open only to writen users and open only to sysops). we want another option- open only to users with rollback righs or sysops. could it tacnically append? tanks,{{SUBST:ס:משתמש:ינון/חתימה}} 19:44, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Technically this is very much possible, just add 'rollback' to $wgRestrictionLevels. Another question would be if Wikia is willing to make this change. --Jack Phoenix (Contact) 20:09, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
This should be enabled now. Please let me know if you are having any problems with it. -- Manticore (talk) 14:23, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
this is working very well. thanks.{{SUBST:ס:משתמש:ינון/חתימה}} 23:47, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
and in this apotoinity' can you add 5th option to protect: "open only to user who have 100 contributes in the main range and writen in the site 30 days (there are pages witch are vote pages and only those users have the right to vote). thanks. {{SUBST:ס:משתמש:ינון/חתימה}} 00:03, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

I'm not sure how feasible this is, as it would require another right to be created, or alternatively, have autoconfirmed set to 100 edits and 30 days activity. Is there really a need for this? I manually police voting pages at Halopedia, as do most of the community there. -- Manticore (talk) 04:02, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Favicon Edit

You recently added favicon page to animepedia and i want to know can we (am i allowed) change the favicon on animepedia to a favicon containing the animepedia mascot Kasuga --IngerAlHaosului 11:21, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Absolutely! I merely changed it from the old Wikia logo to the new one; please customise it as you like. :) You may need to get a local administrator to update it, but I'm happy to help with this if you need. -- Manticore (talk) 13:07, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

I need to have some conrtol in CAW Wika Edit

I need to take down these Trolls & Spammers on CAW Wika. How do I become a person in charge of CAW Wika?

XtremeTony 23:33, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Firstly, Administrators are not "in charge" of the wikis they look after. Secondly, your actions at that wiki are likely encouraging more vandalism. I understand your frustration, but calling the vandals "pieces of shit", "idiots", and telling them to "fuck off" is only enticing them to return, as you are giving them what they are looking for - attention.
It seems there are other users active at that wiki, so I suggest you speak to them about what's going on. Together you can elect new administrators. In the meantime, you are welcome to contact me if there's any more vandalism, though I will endeavour to check in there regularly.

problem in the hebrew uncyclopedia Edit


This should be fixed now. Let me know if it isn't. -- Manticore (talk) 08:05, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

description update in wikia central Edit

Hi.. you reverted my changes to Wikia Central


I understand the catalog has to look more uniform, but this page just scares visitors away with out-of-date description, zero indication that the wiki is alive, and the hard-to-see link (the large box to the right looks like an ad rather than the link to the wiki). As I mentioned on IRC (you weren't there then), when I came to this page, my first reaction was "Oh this wiki is dead, I should ask admin to merge it with our twewy wiki." Then I realized it *is* pointing to our twewy wiki :( Very sad, since most ppl searching google would see this page before they have a chance to get to the actual twewy wiki.

Could you tell me what the guidelines are for the Central page, so I could at least update the description according to those guidelines?

Thank you Mmoroz 23:50, 7 May 2008 (UTC) w:c:twewy

Got a problem Edit

Hello, Man

Pleas unblock becouse page I was deleted at djinni wikia MUST be deleted

It was posted because of mistake. If you need some more info contact me Skype: ksandr_warfire or ICQ: 268597431.

Thanks. Ksandr Warfire 09:21, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Halopedia Edit

Hey. I'm Aranho from Halopedia ( I'm sorry about my edits on Halopedia. I thought I can make the articles on Halopedia more Wikipedia-like until you've blocked me. I'm so sorry for what I've done. I just need to ask you something, when does my blocked expire? And may I know where to find the list of rules in Halopedia? I don't what to screw more things up in Halopedia. Thanks. Aranho 06:10, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Damn. I didn't notice I have a warning from the admins. Just asking, is there any new messages notifications in Halopedia? When I got this new message, I didn't receive and notifications. Aranho 06:24, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
We aren't Wikipedia. No seriously, we're not. I take a great deal of offense in what you have done here. You have replaced the hard work of numerous Halopedia editors with a cut and paste from Wikipedia, in effect stating that our content is worthless. You've also infringed on various copyright laws because you did not provide attribution to the editors at Wikipedia, whose hard work you have just stolen. I don't think there's a valid explanation for that at all, frankly. -- Manticore (talk) 13:07, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Memory Alpha URL "blacklist"Edit

Is it possible to add <url removed> to the URL blacklist in effect for MA? We've seen this link posted on 11 pages now over the last ~72 hours. From 11 unique IP addresses. Thanks! -- Sulfur 12:39, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Done, and replied at MA. -- Manticore (talk) 12:55, 13 May 2008 (UTC)


Haha, I just got you blocked on Wikihow. 17:22, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

How can disable the "Report a problem"? Edit

Hello Manticore,

our users have many questions and thinks, they can ask on "Report a problem" to get answers about our side content. How can disable the menu tab "Report a problem" on coLinux ?

I can see, for example that Wikia:Help does not have such menu tab. -- HenryNe 19:36, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

You can use
#ca-report-problem { display: none !important; }

in MediaWiki:Common.css to hide it for the site. GHe (Talk) 20:27, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

If your community wants this feature disabled, you can contact a member of the Community Team. The reason you can't see the "Report a problem" tab on Wikia:Help is because it only shows for articles in mainspace. See Halo, for example. -- Manticore (talk) 12:12, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
GHe, thank you very mutch. -- HenryNe 15:18, 24 May 2008 (UTC)


This is a serious apology, Manticore. I really want you to know I will no longer vandalize any of the pages on Halopedia, after I become unblocked. Thank You Demon Razgriz 23:14, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Who said you'd be unblocked? -- Manticore (talk) 00:18, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

All Im saying is that I am deeply sorry that I was vandalizing, I didnt intend to be unblocked. Thanks for listening. Demon Razgriz 14:33, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

By the way, since I am blocked, could you add a part to the Shade Turret artcle for Halo 2? In multiplayer, a player can jump at the front of the turret, and if their knees touch the firing mechanism, the turret will become destroyed. If you could put that in, like, a trivia part or something, I'd appreciate it. If you don't believe me, you can try it yourself. I don't know if it works if someone else is on it though. Demon Razgriz 15:22, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Bibliopedia Edit

Hello, I'm the creator of the french wiki for librarians : Its page on Wikia is now a redirect to the place it has moved It doesn't need to be adopted. :)

David L. —This unsigned comment is by David Liziard (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

You and some of the members of your community may have moved away from Wikia, but that doesn't mean that this wiki is going to exist merely as a redirect to get your site more traffic. If you don't want to edit here any more that's fine, but I'm sure someone else will. -- Manticore (talk) 15:38, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

The Third Turn Edit

Hello, thank you very much for the introduction of your bot on our Third Turn site to fix double redirect. We definitely appreciate it. If you would be willing to do two simple tasks that are, quite simply, taking us forever. Because NASCAR series change names, our categories get mixed around. We need everyone under the "Category:Nextel Cup Series drivers" and everyone under the "Category:Busch Series drivers" moved to "Category:Sprint Cup Series drivers" and "Category:Nationwide Series drivers" respectively. If this can be accomplished please let us know and thank you once again. --daNASCAT 13:35, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi! All pages in Category:Nextel Cup Series drivers have been moved to Category:Sprint Cup Series drivers. I'll get started on the other switch later, but I suggest you talk to your community about having the bot flagged as a bot - over 2000 pages were edited for the first switch, flooding your RC quite significantly. ;) If noone there has a problem with it, let me know and I'll ask someone to flag the bot. -- Manticore (talk) 23:41, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
