So they are allowed to stay even after wiki or fandom are deteled? That seems to be pointless.
Actually, that is very important because one of the guidelines stated that you are not allowed to adopt another wiki until 30 days has passed after your last successful adoption. If the adoption requests are deleted, JoePlay doesn't know if you really are successful of adopting the last wiki or not, especially when 30 days hasn't passed since your last reques.
I looks like you included your name in plain wikitext in your old adoption request and have since changed your account name. I have removed that old name since there really isn't any point in keeping it around for years after - especially if it reveals some personal info about you.
Hi Eva, I just adopted an excessively vandalized site, and am in the process of deleting bad content. When i get to the computer my Bot will help out more, i hope what i wrote on the home page is ok.
I'm worried, though. There are far more vandals than non-vandals, I and one other admin and a mod. Vandals are all blocked now, but if all of them get together and demand my bureaucrat right removal, will you do it? Not knowing its vandals?
I'd strongly advise against that - most users hate having anything auto-play without warning when they enter a page, and consider it spammy. If you want to embed audio on a page so visitors can choose whether they want to play it or not, this help page may be useful: Help:Audio

I also heard that he also spammed the Veggietales Wiki.
Hey, as I mentioned in chat the other day, that I was having issues with AWB, well, the issue was, (You may want to put this in the Help page) When you download it from Microsoft Edge, it dosen't let you launch it... but when I tried Firefox, it worked just fine, and I got some productive edits:  So you may want to add that to the help page. Thanks!
The vast majority of our users don't use Edge, so this is a bit of an edge case (pun not intended). Plus, we can't verify that every Edge user would have the same issue. That's why we'd rather leave it off the help page for now to not confuse users unnecessarily.
How's it going? I've been having some problems with the new discussions update that happened about a week ago. I'll explain:
The new update included the page links, tags, and some other nice things. But the update also caused a issue to occur with Moderating on the JP wiki. The new style seems to demand very fast internet access, which I am not always able to get. When I try to get on the discussions, it loads, and then only let's me view posts. I'm not able to delete, report, lock, comment, edit, or up-vote. So if there is something I need to do right away, I am completely useless. Also, I may not be sure, but I feel as if there has been a major drop of activity on the discussions. Possibly because of users having the same issue as myself.
So, my question was: Is there anyway you can replace the new discussions with the old? If you are, and you want opinions of the other users before you do so, I'll be glad to get them. I didn't know if it is possible to change it back for a specific wiki, but I thought I should ask.
Well, hope to hear back.-Carnotaur, Admin, And Discussions Moderator Of The Jurassic Park Wiki
As far as we're aware, the updated Discussions don't load noticeably slower than the old. If you're having this issue, please switch to a different browser and see if you're having the same problem there. Please also check if you can load other websites just fine, to make sure your internet connection is at least fast enought to handle regular web traffic.
If your internet is okay and you're having the same problem in all browsers, we'd appreciate it if you could send us a bug report via Special:Contact. This could be a bug that needs fixing. We can't switch Discussions back to an earlier state on just one wiki, so we'd much rather look into why a smaller group of users (that we know of) is having loading issues.
Hey Mira, I hope you're doing well. I just had a quick question I wanted to ask you, but let me give some background.
On Smashpedia, we make great use of the discussions board and we have a ton of active members. Some members use Smashpedia strictly for discussions, while others use it for both purposes (editing and discussions). One user was recently permanently blocked because of his actions on the discussions, however, his behavior was only on discussions, but is a very consistent editor on the wiki side of things. Is there any way we can block his access to discussions without blocking his access to the rest of the site? He really wants to continue editing and, like I said, his behavior is only affecting the discussions board, not the editing part, itself. If there's anything you can suggest, please let me know.
This conversation is what I'm referring to. Thank you, Mira.
Unfortunately, blocks always affect the wiki and Discussions. There is no mechanism that would let you block someone from one but not the other. We haven't really seen any cases so far where a user's behavior in one area was so inacceptible that they need to be blocked, yet their contributions in the other area was really all that valuable.
If this user is generally reasonable, perhaps you can unblock them, with the caveat that they're to stay away from Discussions completely, and if they post there again, they'll be blocked for good?
