  • Hi RansomTime,

    after clicking my way through the bot help pages, I finally found your name; I hope you are the right person to turn to.

    WKPQ and me are admins of Asphalt Wiki. We have the comment feature enabled, and most of the communication on our Wiki takes place in comments under the article about the current game update. This means that update pages have a lot of comments.

    We recently made the mistake to rename these update pages. FANDOMbot renamed the comments subsequently, but not all. As there are new comments under the renamed page now, we don't know how to rename the pages back to their old name without losing the new comments.

    We have found that this must be a limit in the code of FANDOMbot restricting the number of page edits. The problem is: None of us installed the bot, and we don't know who the owner is.

    We'd be extremely grateful if you took the time to read our conversation and help us out, either by telling us a secure way to rename the pages back to their original name without losing comments or by telling us how to increase the edit limit of the bot.

    As we plan to rename other pages with many comments, I fear that the problem will reappear as soon as these pages have too many comments.

    You can answer directly in the above-mentioned conversation so WKPQ can see your reply, too.

    Thanks in advance

    Guy

    • Hi there, sorry it's taken a while to see this, I'm not very active on FANDOM anymore.

      I think your thread about sums it up, when you move a page with a lot of comments the bot will very slowly move them to the new location, it's best to just wait for this to happen. This, I feel, is a flaw in the article comment's design, as it takes an age to move the comments.

      The best way to continue if you're not sure is to contact Staff as they have a better idea of what's going on internally, it's been a while since I touched this system.

      Thanks again

    • Hi RansomTime,

      thanks for your answer. In the meantime we got a Wiki manager who helped us out bit. There seems to be an additional problem: When you move a page while the bot is still busy moving the comments of another page, it will interrupt its work on the old page, as it seems.

      Well, we've learned our lesson... Will move some comments manually.

      Thanks and have a nice day!

  • Hey RansomTime it's me again. Just checking in to see if you are ready to unban me on the Wikia discord channel so I can stop evading my ban there. I could really use the ability to ask technical questions directly rather than making the questions amiguous and indirect to the problem at hand.

    • I just want to add, I'm not sure as to the reasons of the ban but if this is how you speak with people when trying to get them to see your side of things, you're going to get absolutely no where.

      Calling someones ban "petty an childish" shows no remorse about the reason you were banned in the first place.

      The best thing to do would have been to think long and hard about the actions you've taken and why they might have led to said ban. Try and understand their side - even if you disagree with the outcome, a little empathy to the opposing sides situation will go a long way. But the way you're dealing with this now, really is no good.

    • Well you have no idea about the circumstances of the ban. Bans should be given for a reason, not because someone on another Wiki farm is friends with an admin or mad here and asks them to help bully a positive editor of the community. You'll forgive me if I lack empathy in a ban that has no merit and shouldn't even be in place. Maybe if those who implemented the ban on me had a little empathy I would reciprocate, but there is little reason for me to take a knee and kiss the ring when the would merely spit in my face. I am a positive editor here on the Wikia projects and shouldn't be subjected to this baseless nonsense.

      If you want me to apologize or have empathy for an invalid and baseless ban directed at a positive member of the community, then they they should agree to treat me like a member of the community.

      Oh now I see what this is, you are a global mod standing up and supporting a fellow mod and op. Figures!

  • Hello again RansomTime. I'm just stopping by to see if you have reconsidered letting me access the Wikia discord channels without having to use an alternate account. There is a lot of good information in the #technical channel for example that is useful to admins and people running Wikia wiki's and not being able to see it puts me not only at a disadvantage to other Wiki's but also prevents me from seeing and discussing ongoing sitewide vandals that continue to comment on the military Wiki.

  • Hey Ransom I am asking to be unbanned on the Wikia discord channel. I look forward to the day when you finally drop this petty vendetta against me. I am a positive editor on Wikia and forcing me to evade a ban on Discord just to see information and ask questions (since you shut down all the IRC channels and forced them to Discord) is rather annoying. I don't want to do that, but I need to information so you're forcing me into a catch 22 situation. Cheers!

  • Hey Ransom just checking in about lifting my ban on IRC/Discord. I'd like to be able to use it with this username rather than hiding. I don't like being forced to evade the ban just to be able to ask questions and use the channels.

  • Hey man, 

    Could you do me a favor and delete all my pages from the fanfiction wikia and the novela wikia?

    • Hi, I don't have the authority to delete any pages on those wikis, I only have the authority to delete pages that were created specifically as spam or vandalism.

      What you need to do is talk to the admins of the wiki, and ask them to delete the content created by you. You can find the admins at the list admins page on the wiki, specifically:

      Wikia staff are also available to help, although they'll probably ask you to contact the admins first. You can talk to them at Special:Contact/general

      Good luck and have fun.
