Content team requests and stubs Edit

Hey Wendy! In the pretty near future, I'm probably going to request a new design for Star Wars Fanpedia from the content team, since I think it'll help when we "officially launch" the wiki. Before I make the request official, though, I just want to be absolutely certain that Fanpedia meets the requirements. To that end, I've got a quick question for you. Is there a certain length, size, etc. that you guys consider to be a stub article? How does Fanpedia look in terms of stubs? I just got us to the 250 articles, so I'm just wondering how many I'd have to beef up before hand. Thanks for your help! - Brandon Rhea (talk) 02:19, April 19, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi Wendy, thanks for the reply. The off-wiki links are actually just temporary. You can distinguish between external and internal ones based on the color of the link, but you're right, it can happen without warning if you're not paying attention. Those will definitely be made internal links as we keep on going. Thanks for your time! - Brandon Rhea (talk) 02:54, April 19, 2010 (UTC)

Hey, got another quick question for you about the content team request. Since the design is at the discretion of the team, are requestors allowed to make suggestions for what they'd like to see? I have some ideas that I'd like to present in my request, if possible. Thanks. - Brandon Rhea (talk) 19:54, April 21, 2010 (UTC)

Oversighter requested on Gran Turismo Wiki Edit

Hi Wendy, it looks like you've already got a butt-load of other stuff to sort through, so I'll keep this short and sweet. :D

I recently decided to kick up my Wikia's security standards by oversighting revisions which reveal personal details. (We haven't had any stalker trouble yet, but you know what they say-better safe than sorry!) Unfortunately, we don't have an oversight, so all our admins can do is revert. If you, for some reason, can't grant someone oversight, then a few tips on how to make it more safe would work. Cheers! --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 17:45, April 22, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. Oversight is not a right that is given out on Wikia (afaik no wikis have this right locally)...the right exists locally only due to the fact that it comes with the set of rights that Wikia staff have. Even staff use it extremely rarely due to how much of a hack it is (it is somewhat deprecated due the fact it was replaced with a more stable feature, which is also only available to staff). Normally, if there are personal details needing hidden, you can always delete the article and when restoring revisions, leave the one(s) containing personal information unchecked. If you fear that the other admins don't need access to the information through undelete, you can contact Wikia and let them know the situation and they will handle it appropriately. Regards, --CharitwoTalk 18:25, April 22, 2010 (UTC)
Right then, thanks. So, what else do you think I should do with my policy concerning personal info? --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 21:25, April 22, 2010 (UTC)

What type of personal information do you mean? Do you mean things like where someone lives and how old they are? If so, it's the prerogative of individual users whether or not they say that. Wikia does not collect personal information like that, and wikis are not to collect information like that either, but it's an individuals choice as to whether or not they tell someone where they live. Hope that helps. =) - Brandon Rhea (talk) 21:37, April 22, 2010 (UTC)

If they tell other people about their name, it'd be OK, so long as they didn't do it in a "high traffic" area, such as an article or Main Talk. But I was thinking it would be better to remove article talk: and article:-space edits which reveal any personal info whatsoever. They'd still be able to say whatever they want via Special:Emailuser, though. We would take immediate and severe action (and that doesn't mean just a block, either, if you get what I mean) against anyone, including our own admins, trying to collect the info if we have reason to believe it was with malicious intent. --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 22:43, April 22, 2010 (UTC)
I think the original question has been answered. Personally I don't see a lot of problems with names on talk posts in any area of the wiki if people want to use them and I can't imagine how personal info would appear in a main page edit. Reguardless, I think the main thing to do is just to remind people that a wiki is a public website like any other and they should act accordingly; it is up to them not to post the info more than up to you to worry about a random visitor seeing it. -- Wendy (talk) 00:31, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

I agree with Wendy. There should be a warning in a privacy policy that a) you are not collecting information, b) releasing personal information can sometimes be dangerous, and c) like you said, you'll take action against people trying to collect said information if you feel malice is involved. It's best not to have a knee jerk reaction to the possibility, though, so there's no reason to forbid it. If someone wants to reveal their real name (for example, my user name is my real name), where they live, how old they are, etc., then that's their right to do so. It's great that you want to help keep them protected, but at the end of the day people are allowed to choose to post that information and shouldn't be restricted from doing so. =) - Brandon Rhea (talk) 00:40, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

OK, here's a revised version of our privacy policy. Tell me what you think. --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 01:09, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

Hummm... that's putting a whole lot of words in to Wikia's mouth. It's also creating a new version of the Wikia Terms of Use and Privacy Policy - which is bad for several reasons, especially that it will confuse users where there are differences from the official version. The official policy covers everything necessary here, and this one really isn't needed.
I'd also suggest you are worrying too much about something that hasn't happened and probably never will :) I'm all for being careful online with any information you aren't totally happy with being public, but this is too much. If you have a local privacy policy (and I don't think you need one) then it must be local, and not try to be a Wikia policy. It should link to the Wikia policy, and make it clear that the official policy is the main one for the site. -- sannse@fandom (talk) 17:31, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

Alright, I'll just go ahead and RV back to the default one. Thanks for the input! 68.222.38.219 22:14, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

Spotlight Edit

Hello Wendy,

First of all thank you very much for spotlighting my Wiki, The Three Kingdoms Wiki.

Secondly, perhaps this is a silly question, but what now? Do I have to give you a picture for the spotlight? Or some information? --Zantam03 10:07, May 4, 2010 (UTC)

... Edit

Hi, I'm an admin on some wikis and i create lots of wikis. On Wikis, I only give my name and my location. Thanks! Trikster87, 14:25, May 21 2010 (UTC)

Canine Diabetes Edit

Hello, this letter is to inform you that we are tweeking the main page as you requested. Kmanwing (talk) 18:12, May 24, 2010 (UTC)

Ghostbusters WikiEdit

I'm sorry about the link at the front of the wiki. It had been up there since July of last year, and as you can see here No one has been promoted since July of last year as well. Please reconsider. Thank You. Devilmanozzy (Talk Page) 09:54, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Teen Titans Fan Fiction Wikia Edit

We have already fixed the troubles you found in our lasr request for the spotlight. We would like if we are ready to get the Spotlight now, thanks again. NightBird (talk) God Bless 18:08, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

Choro Q WikiEdit

Hey Wendy. I received your message, and it took me some free time to complete the objectives you gave me. Firstly, I completely redesigned mainpage, making it more user-friendly, moving the news to the bottom and adding a new image navigation system. I also added the "New images" link on the sidebar, which was pretty helpful when it came to editing and finding images.

One problem is though, is the My Home page. I have actually disabled My Home for myself globally, because I didn't need it, so that's why I find it a problem to complete the Community Corner update task. I could try asking somebody else to do it, but honestly, nobody else on the wiki has enough experience and knowledge to update that regularly (that's why we need more experienced users via Spotlight). I could try teaching them, but do you think I have to enable the Community Corner and update it or am I allowed to disable it for everyone on the wiki altogether? Tigernose (Talk) 14:05, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

HelpEdit

I stupidly gave Brandondorf9999 admin rights of Chipmunk Fanon and he gave rights to GoboFraggle and he blocked me from the wikia. Please unblock me and block those users to stop them from being abusive with their rights, thank you --Manta-bee 23:13, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

Adopting Wikis Edit

Hello! I was just wondering whether you could get back to me on my request to adopt a wiki on the request to adopt a wiki page. I have never had any user rights before and would really like them, and also the wiki that I am wanting to adopt is quieter than ever! The regular 'Unregistered Contributer' hasn't been on for ages and the last time someone logged on was three days ago to upload a picture. I would really like to get this wiki going again!! Here's the link;

http://harry-potter.wikia.com/wiki/Harry_Potter_Wiki

Could you please look at my request on the adoption page and get back to me as soon as possible. Sorry if I am bothering you! Rowan (talk) 16:17, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Help? Edit

Hi, Wendy! There seems to be a little problem with the Wikia Adoption page. I asked for admin rights to the Kekkaishi Wikia a few weeks ago (1 or 2?) and there have been two recent different requests since then. I looked up the user's usernames on the Kekkaishi WIkia and saw that in all they both have little to no edits, and I have the most. I've tried to reply to my post on the page, and have not had a reply. I'm just bringing this to your attention because if I am admin of the Wikia I'd do my best to keep it clean, organized, and under control. I've spotted some things that need to be deleted and I can't do that right now. Please get to me back soon. I'll be making two new pages on the Wikia tonight so I can keep it going and updated.


Thanks! -AbigailAbernathy 01:51, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks Edit

Hi ~ I just wanted to say "Thank You" for your very kind welcome. You included a lot of usable information and I appreciate that. {{SUBST:User:Ghaziya/Sig}} 02:48, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Samurai Jack wiki Edit

Hello I would like to request a spotlight on the Samurai Jack wiki as we have recently reached over 100 hundred articles, however I am a bit worried about the number of incomplete articles that may affect our chances, so if you would, please inspect it to see if this is possible. Thanks.SalmanH (Talk) 13:37, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

That's too bad, though I suppose there's no choice but to reach the criteria then, alright then I'll get back to you when we do. Thanks.SalmanH (Talk) 06:38, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

If I'm administrator... Edit

Hi. My name's Psychid. If you may remember, I'm one of the three current administrators of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Fan Fiction Wiki. However, now that I'm officially administrator... shouldn't there be more options (as in blocking other users' IP addresses because they broke rules)? =\ Or am I not an "official" administrator as of yet? =/ Just curious, is all. --Yes, it's PSYCHID! He talks! He does stuff! 00:28, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

It took some time to find the oppurtunity to work on it, and I have completed the Community Corner. Is this is it or are there more tasks to complete for spotlight? Thanks, Tigernose (Talk) 21:46, July 2, 2010 (UTC)

Question Edit

Just dropping a line to find out if anything has been done regarding this. Thanks for your time. Rappy 09:49, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

From Wikidwelling Edit

Hi Merry, thank you for your interest on Wikidwelling! Your suggestions are really precious to me. I'll try to follow the suggestions in "Community Corner" on My Home, however for the moment I have no users - I planned to invite some people later, when I'll be satisfied by the general structure and seeding of the wiki. So it's difficult, for example, to start a new project. About uncategorized pages: almost all articles are properly categorized, even with 3 or more categories! There are some "red" links to unnecessary, unexisting categories, however, that will be simply deleted in the future, but this will require time (because unfortunately I don't have a bot!). Please let me know if I aswered properly. I'll be happy to receive further suggestions by you anytime. Thank you. MC Kemello 10:39, July 21, 2010 (UTC)

I customized the Community-corner as you suggested, thak you! --MC Kemello 08:53, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for spotlighting! :) MC Kemello - Wikidwelling 09:41, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Content team request Edit

Hey Wendy, I was just wondering if you could give me an estimate on when my content request will be approve and made. I know you and the content team are busy and I hate to ask, but I just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. Thanks. -BluethunderContact 20:00, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for the explanation. That sounds fine. -BluethunderContact 18:02, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Adoption requests Edit

Hello Wendy! Will k here! I was wondering, if you have a spare moment, could you check the adoption requests. I know a friend of mine gets really bugged when staff are online and are free but won't do the requests (he is trying to adopt Kung Fu Panda Wiki) so please, if you have the time, please take the time to check through the adoption requests and if you can, answer the Kung Fu Panda Wiki request (I agree to it). --Will k Narwhals, narwhals, swimming in the ocean... Shoop Da Woop! Blargh! 06:31, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi Will. I looked over the request. Just remember that if community team members are online and not looking at the adoption requests, it probably means that they're working on something else at the time. We also look over requests in the order that they're posted, and your friend's was at the end of the current list. That said, Spottedstar was granted the rights. =) - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 07:12, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Spotlight Request Edit

Hey, Wendy! I was wondering if you would mind looking over my wiki's request for spotlight? I understand you are very busy and appreciate it very much. Thanks! Avatar (Talk) 16:33, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Spotlight in wrong category Edit

Hello again! I've noticed that the spotlight for Coasterpedia is in the wrong category. The wiki has previously moved from "Lifestyle" to "Entertainment". The spotlight is being shown in the "Lifestyle" category. Is it possible for that to be changed, and is this the right place to ask? Thanks!

MontagnaMagica 15:35, September 7, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for asking. Your answer makes sense, although, it seems like the spotlights would be more effective if they were displayed in the hub they are already in. Unfortunately, I haven't seen very much traffic and nobody has made an edit. :( Thanks again! MontagnaMagica 05:11, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

For a long time now, we have been trying to get onto Spotlight, but we are in need of urgent help.

Re:Dragon Ball Wiki Edit

I have now categorized all pages that need it, although they might take a couple of days to refresh, and I have also customized the community corner. I have not removed the protection as I understand it, there was a history of users vandalizing the main page, which is why it was protected. I have tried to encourage the protection to be dropped, however the majority of us agree it is for the best. Will this affect us being approved? Many thanks!  SSJ4 Lewich  talk  contribs  15:31, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, the main page has been lowered to autoconfirmed. Was there anything else?  SSJ4 Lewich  talk  contribs  16:52, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

Spotlight Questions Edit

Hello Wendy, I just have two questions that were raised about the Spotlight. 1)Do you know when the Spotlight starts? 2)Do we have to create our own image and if so how long do we have for that? Thanks in advance. Lancer1289 12:39, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply but I do have a few questions if you don't mind. If we are to create a graphic, then where to we submit it? Do I just post a link to it on the Spotlight talk page? Or is there someplace else? Thanks in advance. Lancer1289 02:28, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you again with this Wendy but I do have a problem with the spotlight. Currently the image doesn't resemble anything from ME and it looks more like something out of the Terminator movies than Mass Effect. Even the weapons don't match. Is there anyway we can get this changed to resemble something that more accurately reflects the ME universe? Please? Lancer1289 13:59, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Template loop detected Edit

Been trying to put in a navbox for a few days now, but its been unsuccessful. After following help articles, and putting in coding, we still get a Template loop detected message in red. I don't know how to fix this. I've looked for this, and have found nothing about this message.


http://submachine.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Navbox


Link to our navbox. The coding we want is within, and we have also updated the .css and .js areas to what the Dynamic Navigation article states. Still nothing. Please help in any way you can. Submachiner 02:40, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

The legend of the legendary heroes wiki Edit

My adoption request was denied possibly because you had made a mistake understanding what i mean't.

I know i can edit the front page and ryner lute page, i want to edit the menu to the left, and only an admin can do that. If you went to the site you would have seen that, its a major problem that i would like to fix. Sorry if this sounds abit rude, it isn't mean't to be anyway.

Custom Hero Factory Wiki Edit

Well, like I said: The admins, Toa Zion and Toa Spyck, haven't gone on the wiki for more that a month now (32 days, if i'm correct). I don't think, at a rate like Four weeks, four days, that Toa Zion will be returning. Besides, I have added nearlly a total of 60 articles, as well as all of the main characters in Hero Factory to the wiki as well...and several old articles need to be deleted...And only Spyck and Zion can do that - Yet they are inactive. At this point, Merrystar, I don't think that in 23 days they'll have come back. And even if they do, they'll probably make one or two more edits before going inactive again, and they'll probably say no to us for a reason we don't know of, and we'll have to back to this point - again. I just wanted to say that, because I have a bad feeling about the wiki collapsing. Thanks.

Hi, I wasn't sure whether to post this in Spotlight request or not. The One Piece Encyclopedia is regularly featured in the Anime wiki page, which is wonderful, and we're really grateful for it. Recently the manga went through a major change, and shortly before that Oda (the manga author) drew a really wonderful color spread. So, I was wondering if perhaps we could have a new image that represents us. I made this up from that spread. If it's not changeable, that's understandable, but if it is, it would be much appreciated. Thanks for your time. YazzyDream 05:51, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

The Blog

So can you please remove the new skin?

I have a question! Will be the Monaco Skin be gone? If so, when? And is there any way of saving the skin? Thanks for your help. And do you know any Wiki Staff members?

About that Kingdom Hearts Wiki Edit

I'm the admin from Kingdom Hearts Italia, and i'm here just to make the situation a bit clever. PRISON was an user on our wiki, but we banned him because he was too bully. Then, he started his wiki, annuccing everywhere he created his wiki before us (even if everybody can easily check this is false). I was like "ok, just don't care about him", but he started copy our articles and now even the mainpage (our mainpage, his mainpage). Some of the users from our wiki get really angry: he still pretend to be a "good guy", but believe me, he's a really bad element. And he still don't get the idea of what a "wiki" is, treating it like a forum where he just like be the admin. That's all, i just wanna told you that. But it looks like you already understand this wiki is just a copy with some minor changes (his Heartless article, our Heartless article, his Kingdom Hearts (game) article, our Kingdom Hearts (game) article). I wrote this in the same page as PRISON (you can check the chronology here) but obliviously he cancelled my text. Thank you for your time and sorry if i made some writing errors. TheDekuLink

Concerning bcn.wikia.com (redux) Edit

You placed my previous request on hold, as I had not yet created an article on the wiki, and advised me to start editing. I was told that I could have admin status once I had done some editing and created at least one new article. Well myself and the other BCN member authors have set up shop and are churning out content. Many of the pages are still in "placeholder" status while we're waiting on the relevant Authors to provide the needed information, but I believe I meet the requirements for having created at least one article. Right now the whole editing process is going kind of slow because we don't want to reveal the wiki to the general populace of our fans until at least one of us has admin status and is able to control things. So do I meet the requirements to be admin of bcn.wikia.com?

Marvel Database Spotlight Edit

Merrystar, I am sure you are swamped with messages concerning the skin rollout, but I wanted to check with you on the spotlighting of the Marvel Database. Since the new skin is now in action and I think you were holding on the spotlight until this was done, have we been spotlighted? I have been going through the various wikis over the past couple weeks and refreshing all the spotlights to see if we happened to show. Thought I would check again since the rollout on the skin is completed and I still do not see any spotlights for the site. Did I just miss it? Either way, I also wanted to let you know that the spotlights on the Entertainment Wikia Page still are the same from a while back and the page has not been updated. Not sure if you were in charge of that as well or if I needed to put in something to the Special:Contact. Please let me know about both of these issues. Thank you. --M1shawhan 22:22, November 4, 2010 (UTC)

No big reason. Just thought it odd whenever I would click on the main Wikia "Entertainment" page and it would be the same. As for the other, THANKS! :) --M1shawhan 23:05, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Spotlight Question Edit

Hi, sorry to bother you again but I see you are looking through the adoption requests. Would you mind reviewing mine Community Central:Adoption Requests#Ninja Gaiden Wiki. Brandon had said that he was going to review it today but he never got around to it. The reason it is on hold is because an admin logged on just to tell me I was doing a good job. I left him a message asking about making me an admin but he never got back to me and Brandon said that if a week passed with no reply, he would grant the request. I really wanted to get started on doing some things I can only do with admin privileges before I have to start preparing for finals--God (Pray) 05:38, November 25, 2010 (UTC)

Its fine. Im just happy to have finally gotten the request taken care of. I have been able to get a lot done and created some things that I am hoping will rebuild the community. Thanks anyway!--God (Pray) 03:27, November 27, 2010 (UTC)

Re:(Email)"Mass Spam" Edit

Hey Merry, thanks for the reply- I accually enjoyed cleaning it up (as funny as it sounds), gave more drama then contributing :D. I accually didn't know much about VSTF, it looks like somthing I would like to get involved with someday. Anyways Thanks again, Happy editing -Imdill3 03:16, November 27, 2010 (UTC)

Gun Wiki Edit

Hi Wendy, not to be too pushy, but I'd like to get Bureaucratic and Admin privileges for myself and Smoke. I fear Dtlwarrior will check in and do some edits. This would like torpedo my plans. If you look on the home page of Gun Wiki you will see that nothing has been up dated since 2007 (unless automatically programed; e.g. page count and newest pages.). I have spent days rewriting internal pages to update the site and better represent the visitors and members. There's a lot ready to go. I would hate to see all that effort go to waste. Much thanks for your time and energy, Greg Glover 23:48, December 1, 2010 (UTC)

Spotlights words Edit

Hi, i was just wondering; who decides what the words on a spotlight wiki are (I.E:DC Comics Wiki Database: originally an abbreviation for detective comics).Sw9889 (Who am I?)(Have something to say?) 19:58, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

Wiki adoption Edit

Hi. I had posted a request to adopt the Chronicles of Narnia Fanon Wiki and User:Brandon Rhea asked if spenpiano (the only other active user) if he was okay with me adopting the wiki. He said I could. Since I first posted the request, I've had about 100 more edits. I was wondering if you could go over the request? Thank you, SlyHades99 21:42, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

Becoming An Adoption HelperEdit

I would like to become an adoption helper like you and Brandon Reha. I have been comenting on wiki adoptions and found that it is something that I would really enjoy doing full time. I currently have wikis that I am activley contributing to so I will be free a lot of the time I'm online to help with adoptions. DustpeltA Wikia Contributor

Ok I hope that eventually a spot will open up and I will be hired. DustpeltA Wikia Contributor

Hi! I would like to ask if you could look at Pokefanon's request for spotlight soon. If we are accepted, THANK YOU! -Talk To Uni! 17:43, January 11, 2011 (UTC)

  • Only some helpers such as Wendy (Merrystar) Grunny ,Joey, and Brandon I don't think any other user can help with that, you can leave helpful messages on the requestee'(s) talk page.

Hope this helps!

Re: Spotlight Request Edit

The pages on Planetpedia that were not categorized are now categorized.

Thomas Wonderson 05:21, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

Re:Spotlight Edit

I have changed the default message in the community corner as you have requested. Thomas Wonderson 20:55, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

SpotlightsEdit

Hi, I'm trying not to pester you but I have been looking forward to our spotlight request being answered ever since I put it up. I understand there are more adoption requests than spotlight requests, but I see them as equally important to a wiki. I am just wondering when someone would start to answer those, its wikia's job, after all.

- Thanks,


Universal 02:42, January 20, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, it really means a ton to us. -Universal

Forum Edit

I feel you should be given a chance to defend yourself Forum:Please make the Rogue Helper Merrystar Leave Our Wiki Alone--God (Pray) 01:39, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry for the interruptionEdit

Can you check out my adoption request here? Slipknot Darkrai
M ok I just thought and wondered if you could help out. Slipknot Darkrai

Block Edit

So I do not understand why blocked?! Лёва Корова 13:28, January 30, 2011 (UTC)


Spotlight on The Backyardigans Wiki Edit

I have seen the message you left on my talk page on The Backyardigans Wiki. I have started to categorize the subpages and lowered the home page protection so all registered users, but not anonymous users, can edit it. Thank you for informing me about the criteria practices! Sandy Cheeks 20:43, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

Bot request Edit

Hi wendy, can I request to have my other account Eglinton2 as a bot?

Thank you.

ℂℍℝIS☯ ♫Talkhelp 18:51, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

when Edit

when are you picking the beaurooocccrats? we've been waiting a while at the glee wiki. i dnt wana rush you but just respnd thanks

Looney City Citizens Edit

I made a request a long time ago, and you said it would be approved if I categorized most of the pages and I did some customizing on the corner. I might not know how spotlights work, but you did say you would approve it, after I did those things. Moehoward

Question? Edit

Now that I've had my wiki approved, aside from editing, what do I do? (Moe Howard)

Thanks, but I have another question, how long will it be before it finally shows up on the spotlights, or has it already?

Ignorance Edit

I requested Songpedia for like three days ago, and you just ignored it (proof). Is there a problem with the wiki? If there is, just tell me. =) -- paul mccartney   Songpedia The Beatles Chat  Contribs   02:52, February 13, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. You need to understand that others have posted requests prior to yours. Requests are usually sorted in order. Please have some patience because good things come to those who wait. --CharitwoTalk 03:01, February 13, 2011 (UTC)

Done Edit

Just reminding you that I added the pics to the home page of the Mega Bloks Halo Wars Wiki. - 99alextheman99 04:44, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

SpotlightEdit

The Backyardigans Wiki (http://backyardigans.wikia.com) should have a spotlight now because I have taken care of all the uncategorized pages. That was the only thing that I needed to do because I already lowered the protection on the home page. - Sandy Cheeks (talk) 15:18, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

Please use the correct page to request spotlights. --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 15:35, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Bot FlagEdit

Merrystar, can you give a bot flag to my bot account Grilbot on Suite Life Wiki and Randomness Wiki? Thanks in advance.

A couple of thingsEdit

Hey, Wendy, I was just going to request a spotlight when I read over the requirements for good measure in order to make sure my wiki qualified for one when I saw this: "The Wiki should have a custom message in the Community Center on Recent Wiki Activity." I don't know how to create a custom message for the Community Center, so if you could show me how to do that, it would help.

Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, I think I found a weakness in the system: the fact that a bureaucrat can't be "de-bureaucrated", so to speak. This is a major flaw for one glaring reason: the fact that burnt-out bureaucrats can turn evil and de-admin everyone on the wiki. I was wondering what the reason is behind this, and if indeed it is a flaw, I'll try to get in contact with Mr. Vibber and the rest of the MediaWiki team and maybe try to help them get this fixed in the future, in whatever small way I can, even if it is as a test dummy. --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 03:44, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, and one more thing: how do you check a user's global contributions? --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 22:18, March 1, 2011 (UTC)

Adopt request! Edit

Okay, I'm waiting to April 7 to adopt Aveyond wiki, but how about Dash Wiki and Supa Strikas wiki. Please check for me

User:XiaoQiaoGrace, March 3rd, 2011 12:50 Beijing GMT:+8:00 time


Please check Dash Wiki, this need admin to rise, please let me or DarlaDash become adopt admin. Thanks

User:XiaoQiaoGrace, March 3rd, 2011 13:00 Beijing GMT:+8:00 time


hi the comment that you posted.thank you

To clear what Xiao said above up: I think he's expressing a want to adopt Aveyond Wiki as well as Supa Strikas Wiki. Not sure, though...--Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 01:40, March 17, 2011 (UTC)
Yes. But she has just started her own wiki and cannot adopt any wiki until April 17th, as I explained on her talk page. At that time she will have to decide which she wishes to adopt first. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:55, March 17, 2011 (UTC)
