Hi Wendy, I just read through the policies of the wiki after I got blocked, and there is a rule on that page that says "lyrics to songs of Sesame Street, Muppet Show, etc." cannot be allowed and I found this,
"Posting the full lyrics to a song isn't allowed on the wiki; it's considered a violation of the songwriter's copyright, and that's a violation that is enforced more often than images or other potential violations. It's okay to quote selected lines from a song within the context of a larger article about that song, the songwriter, or the character." And although I'm a blocked user on there, I sure wish I could help with the lyrics to the songs. Why can't we add lyrics? Would the user who did that get a copyright fine or considered an infringement?
Hi Merry, I noticed the Living Books Wiki had only two admins, both of which had been inactive since 2015. The wiki has been long vandalized here and there with all kinds of fanon stuff and is still continuing. I need to adopt the wiki so I can do what I can to clean out all this fanon garbage.
I tried, and LegoKing831 (one of both inactive admins on the wiki) already submitted an adoption request there. Is there a way another user can submit an adoption request? I read that "once an adoption request has been closed, staff members no longer monitor it, so further messages left there won't be seen. Instead, send a direct message to the staff member who last responded to your request."
Does "If an adoption request already exists for a wiki you wish to adopt, please add a number inside parentheses at the end of the wiki's name, like My Great Wiki (2). This helps us keep things straight — and searchable!" help?
Hi, Merrystar no longer works for FANDOM and it's very unlikely FANDOM would get involved with this I'm afraid. The best advice I can give is to try and reach out to all the admins about your concerns, perhaps in Special:Chat if this is enabled on the Wiki. It's okay if you disagree but if you make your concerns apparent to them, it will work a lot better that way than someone coming in from the outside and taking action.
