  • You do know you were replying to a Thread filled with Users who were volunteer editing the unofficial page to keep track of issues and that was where I was mentioning where the errors were.

    I in no way know the official word on bugs- and never was saying other wise. What I was trying to do in that thread was trying to help users get out speculation out of this unofficial page. Because I noted that it was not a global count when I personally compared my stats.

    You happen to confirm exactly what my original post was observing "User edit count doesn't sync with either local or global edits". So at least we got staff confirmation to weed out that speculation. And now I updated the unofficial page correctly.

    But you did it in a way that was very defensive and you assumed I didn't know it was a bug and therefore I felt you may have not fully read the post/thread. Are volunteers not allowed to discuss how to better this volunteer edit page and weed out speculation and incorrect information? Because that was all I was trying to do.

    • Hey Hollowness,

      I completely understand and I believe I came across a bit heated in my reply; that was not my intention at all and I apologise. The thread is — admittedly — quite long and sometimes skim reading leads to misinterpretation; this was my error.

      Apologies again, hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and continue to find those pesky bugs :)

    • I am just glad that it was sorted. It is easy for anything to get a bit heated with real life the way it is at the moment. I do try very hard to keep things clarified and non-invasive; just trying to keep calm and avoid the flames! XP

      You too! Good luck during these times both in real life and in the UCP transition.

  • Hello there! I have a question regarding a certain user on The Boys Wiki. He keeps leaving comments and replies to comments on every single talk page, even if the comments are half a year old. He hasn't been posting external links or anything , but this clutters up the Recent Activity page and is super annoying. I've asked him to cease this behavior, but he has ignored me. Is this grounds enough to block him? Thanks in advance. :)

    • Hi, hope all is well. I'd recommend directing this question to Lucas, given he is the Wiki Manager there — nevertheless, I've invited him to join this thread and provide his opinions.

      From my personal experience, I would say this is perhaps a blockable offence, since they seem to be doing it on purpose, and are offering no real conversation other than randomly shot comments. Other options of course are to either turn off anonymous contributions, or disable article comments in favour of Discussions, which doesn't show up in Wiki Activity/recent changes. Either option is something you should discuss with Lucas, however; I would think blocking would be okay in this situation, however given this user is an anonymous user.

    • Alright. Thanks for the input! :)

    • I would agree with Original Authority's comment. If you think it's causing enough of a disruption to other editing, it could be a blockable offence - and I see you've already blocked the user, so there's that.

      If there are more issues with anonymous contributors in article comments, an extra option we have is to enable a restriction that prevents anonymous comments only (making it so that registered users can still comment). I'd only recommend thinking about this if things keep getting out of hand, as the wiki has had a good stream of comments in the past, particularly around the time the season released.

    • Thank you for the advice! I do think I will have to restrict the pages at some point for registered users only, but I'd rather leave it open for now until more editors start frequenting it.

  • okay so i dont know what i did to earn that block, two people attacked at me today because i had a few complaints about the episode last night and i defended myself politely against them, so please let me know what i did to warrant this block cause they got away with it




    like there are people even if you arent aware of them out there in fandoms, including tvd fandom that go to extremes and actually send death threats to the people who make these shows, so please go after those people, im harmless in this situation

  • Hi, and thanks again for your help at Thread:1281847

    After I got ReferencePopups working, I found some other scripts on dev to try personally.

    A couple weeks ago, I got Deadvideo to work, but I just added two more that don't seem to be working.

    Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance :)

  • Hey AO, you said if I needed help I could ask you, so here it is, I am trying to help improve the Teen wolf pack wiki main page to make it more up to date. http://teen-wolf-pack.wikia.com/wiki/Teen_Wolf_Wikia  (my tries so far are obviously rubbish as you cans ee)

    so far my attempts have not gone so well, mainly because there are missing banners etc and of course, I am not good at coding.. I am using the wiki I am admin of, the evil dead wiki, to use its main page as a template since that was recently updated by a community member http://evildead.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page 

    Would you be able to help?

    Basically other adding good headers, I am trying to establish a news feed and twitter feed about teen wolf, using evil dead as a template, wasn't too bad as I had to was replace names and change links but I have no idea how to sought the twitter, news feed, chat banner and other banners out since there is no custom images on there for it.

  • The  admin sent me an email "Trying to bypass block from another account. Which is against wiki policy." 

    I am not my MOTHER!!! So I do not understand what's going on at all! This is so ridiculous! My family is poor. We have to share a computer. I don't have a choice. I don't have time to go to the library. My mom requested that they take down her page completely on TVD! She has no interest any more.

    I'm gonna ask for a tablet for Christmas but I doubt I'll get it. I'm only 19 and my mom is 35. She had me when she was like 16 or something and so that's why we're so poor and have one computer everyone shares! Please don't let them block me! It's my mom that needs it NOT me I swear!

    • Dude, why do you keep making a new message wall comment instead of replying on the first one you sent to Original Authority?

    • As we cannot differentiate between if you are trying to bypass a block or not, the IP ban will remain enforced until the blocking admin see fit. Please speak to them about it and please do not contact me again in an effort to evade your block, again.

  • So, no one's going to talk to me now? Everyone has turned their backs on me and I would like to know why. I really need help! Please can you help me? If not, at least tell me why, please.

    Thanks,
