I just wanted to apologize again for that exchange on the VSTF Wiki. I don’t know what possessed the original ticket author to leave that message there instead of coming to another wiki staff member, nor do I understand why the other user involved felt the need to report a similarly small incident—if you can even call it an incident—on the same page instead of telling local staff. Like you said, this is a social problem, not a VSTF/FANDOM Staff problem. These past few weeks have seemingly brought an uptick in tensions, in terms of both vandals and unrelated social issues, probably due to a combination of schools letting out and the continued effects of the pandemic/lockdowns. I have a feeling this won’t be the last time someone tries to contest a block or warning or tries to falsely report admins for doing their jobs (just look at my wall here for an unrelated user spamming “unblock me now” messages) so I apologize in advance for any further shenanigans that may erupt and bleed over to places it doesn’t belong.
I apologize for this and I thank you for doing your job.
Not the person you were asking this. But you should include a link to your wiki (format [(webadres of your wiki) (name of your wiki)] which looks like Community Central (using [https://community.fandom.com/wiki/Community_Central Community Central]. If you're brand new you might also want to take a look at this cheat sheet for wiki code: How to use wikitext]. Hope it helps and good luck creating something wonderful!
But to whom?Thanks for reply of course, but there's no admins in this wiki(though I want to become one when I will have 3000 edits, I am you know kind of the de-facto admin here, I edit pages,correct mistakes, look after the wiki as a whole)
The VSTF only cleans up spam and vandalism - we can't make someone an admin nor can we do anything else besides reverting, deleting and blocking. If you want admin rights, you can adopt the wiki and if you need help with something else than what I mentioned, please contact Fandom staff via the link TortoiseCat provided to you.
For additional questions please use the forum. A lot more people are watching the forums and they know way more than I do.
Thanks again, you have said we(VSTF) can delete. And all I want you to do is to delete two empty pages can't you do it?Also if it is not secret are you female or male?You know I have argued about that with another user
Does Rain really need to explain it multiple times? Isn't one time enough?
The VSTF does only delete spam pages. The definition of spam is found here. Deleting empty pages falls into the authority of local admins. If there are none you can use the adopt link Rain sent you above.
Wow, wow,wow in your unnatural world wiki it was written "feel free to message me" well I see the opposite of this here I have asked you to delete two spam pages and I hear no response. I understand you could have been upset because of me misleading you unocassionaly but three days went maybe uou will stop being angry at me?Anyway I did this unocassionaly and I wanted to help and I am waiting for your reply.
You already got your response on the report page on the wiki and yet you keep posting serveral messages on my message wall. My message wall is not meant to report anything nor do I want to explain why the VSTF can't deal with certain things. We have clear policies on our wiki and Anoop already linked you two pages explaining what vandalism and what spam is. Please stop messaging me for no reason. If you want to report something, use the report pages on the wiki.
So a user named "ThatScrewyDuck" keeps making fun of "Nice Guys inish First" by calling him midkowitch,this is not my problem but i randomly found this on the history on "Jr Mime's" wall a day ago in the history box,but when "Jr Mime" said something about a ticket, "ThatScrewyDuck" just interups the message wall. (note:Not my problem i'm just telling you.)
Also a user named Tonyarceus777 was vandalizing pages also,I put Felix the cat on the thumbnail of the level list,when he edited,the summary was "Let Felix the cat stay" And I have never seen him talk ever again.
But anyways, I saw you at one of my wikis once and noticed your signature. I think it’s pretty cool, especially how you have the My Little Pony (I think) GIF and that “box” that surrounds your username. I was wandering if you could help me set up something somewhat similar. I really just want the box, not the GIF. Thanks!
Hello, I was blocked on the Amorous wiki for "vandalism", but all I did was add redirects to the main page on useless pages and mark them for deletion. Take Larry the Crab for example, the page on him says you can date him, but he's not even part of the game. Vandalism is defined as a usually deliberate attempt to damage the usefulness of content for other viewers. None of the information I removed was useful for the game of Amorous. I did, however, revert 2 different pages to earlier useful edits since they actually are in the game: Phone and The Coffee Shop.
EDIT: I was wrong, it's not Larry the Crab, it's Larry Lobster.
Hi, sorry for the trouble but from the outside your edits looked like vandalism because it seemed like you were just removing the pages for no reason. I removed the block - so you should be able to edit again. Let me know if you can't.
Also, there is one more thing you could do for me. I don't know if you're in contact with any of the staff, but is there any chance you could let them know how much we need an active admin over there? I've already submitted a ticket (or whatever you call it) about getting some new admins due to our current ones not making any contributions in the last 2 and 4 years.
