I put in a request a few months ago to have this wiki https://pmd-explorers.fandom.com/wiki/PMD_Explorers_Wiki crossed over to the new home on gamepedia since we merged with the wiki's admin. I wanted to get possible controbutors on the Mystery Dungeon franchise wiki as soon as possible. How long does it usually take for a wiki to be crossed over?
The 2 fandom wikis I want to have merged are dead. One of them only has 27 pages and we merged with the creator. The other has been abandoned and is full of mis-information that we've spent months cleaning up. It makes more sense for all info on the franchise to be in one place as well. I tried to adopt the bigger wiki but got denied.
We merge wikis of all sizes, so long as the communities on both sides agree or one of the two doesn't have any active community, i.e. there is no one around who would mind.
The list of wikis to cross over is very long, which is why it can take so long. You can help speed things up by putting a notice up on every wiki that you want to cross over, letting visitors know that you're hoping to get all except one wiki archived. On Fandom, that can be a note on the main page and/or a post in Discussions coupled with an Announcement. On Gamepedia, a sitenotice is best. If you don't have admin rights, a staff member like myself can create that Announcement for you.
And if you've already done that and no one has objected, even better! Then we can go right ahead and actually merge the wikis in a few days.
Wonderful! The above linked wiki is abandoned and all content had been imported and improved upon. I'm currently porting the second wiki still but I believe it has an announcement already. Most people know it's being ported but it's taking a while to clean up the mis-information and spelling errors and convert to the new format.
(Note: I’m copying and pasting this because apparently Sophiedp isn’t staff despite being an admin but maybe Community Central is so different from other wikis I just don’t understand)
So, a good fandom friend of mine (Lunaraemaemae) was banned across all of fandom for a while (a few days). Apparently the user who reported her was Imperium666, she said she was banned by Fandom Support.
She said it was for rickrolling him, but it seems more likely it was for cross wiki drama
However, from what I’ve seen, Imperium was the one who first brought the drama over to the Undertale RP Wiki
Also, the drama started after she managed to get a Bureaucrat position on CF DF Wiki (Imperium’s wiki) and banned him there (I’ll explain why later)
The thing is... that wiki was specifically made to hate on Crazy Fanfics, an AU/RP located on the Undertale RP Wiki
Wouldn’t that be greater cross wiki drama, especially if he is the one who brought it over to the UT RP Wiki?
Also, Imperium made that wiki after he was kicked off Crazy Fanfics for repeatedly breaking the rules after being reminded and warned multiple times. He tried using forgetting them as an excuse, and still thinks it was a good one even after the Wiki Coder told him it wasn’t. It wasn’t a good excuse because if he got to keep getting away with that, nothing would change. Also, he could simply read the replies right above to remind himself anyways
Can something be done about this?
Before you ask: I tried to convince Lunarae not to go for the banning plan but she wouldn’t drop it, so please don’t think I encourage that kind of risky behavior. I just don’t think it’s fair that she gets banned and he doesn’t.
First, while Mira Laime *is* Staff, message walls is not the place for any discussions like this due to individual privacy concerns. Even if it was yourself you wanted to discuss. Thus why contact Fandom Staff with links (not screenshots) is the preferred method.
Second, by using the Contact link, a Support Ticket is generated which will be routed to the first available Staffer authorized to deal with a particular topic or situation (like any company, not all employees are in the same department or with the same responsibilities). Support tickets also generate auto-reminders to ensure they don't fall between any cracks, whereas message walls does not have automatic reminders. Not to mention, waiting on that Staffer's availability schedule vs personal time off…
Eh, I’m just poking fun at myself a bit. I’m alright
It’s just my weird attempts at being self-aware-ish
Sorry about that
Welp, now to continue watching Jontron videos, re-reading roleplay s I’ve been in, and on the side studying a bit about Separation Anxiety Disorder
...Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick
TV Tropes has ruined my life XD
(I’m serious, they even have a PAGE on that XD
To quote the image: “It’s like rickrolling bit you’re trapped all day”)
I’m trying to do this to relax because yeah there’s been a lot of stressful stuff on Fandom lately for me, with stuff like this. I miss when it was simpler and I didn’t have to deal with those kinds of people
Well, personally I don’t really like it when things ask for an email address (especially since this account uses my dad’s. Also, it’s 1 in the morning) so... maybe I should just hope things calm down since apparently Imperium666 doesn’t even know how to unblock himself there?
Also I have to sleep right now and I have school so why am I even up?
Though I guess now you know about that thing and what the wiki is called and can link it up if you’re curious. Though last time I had a big fandom issue I reported it straight to Sannse so I assumed that I could do something similar here

If you haven't already, please follow Noreplyz' advice and contact Fandom via the methods mentioned. Your message will be confidential there, and you won't need to make (more) personal information public when you reach out.
As the bureaucrat of Smurfs Fanon Wiki, I'm getting harrassed by somebody who doesn't like the content on the wiki and wants to dictate what should and shouldn't be on it, despite the fact that I and the other administrators have given people creative liberty within reasonable limits to post whatever kind of material they would like to have on the wiki for stories.
I'm sorry to hear that's happening to you! Could you please add links to the exact pages where you're being harassed? If we can't see what's happening, it's difficult to follow up on this. I'd also recommend sending staff a message via Special:Contact, especially on a ((in this case US-only) holiday) weekend, since you're more likely to get quick help there. If you do send a message through there, it's also important to include links directly to the relevant pages.
HEllo another way to deal with these kind of problems can be to hold a demotion thread to demote this user And to as mira said above contact throught the special:contact form Harrasement is taken serious here at fandom
If you're having trouble with a user and can't resolve things with the help of your local admins, please contact staff via Special:Contact. Be sure to include links to where that person is causing trouble, otherwise there isn't much we can do!
