The confusing thing is that, he got banned from the BFDI wikia because after he begun flooding my messages, it spread to other people's messages, he "thanked", or should i say, spammed me for a "edit summary" on the BFDI wikia, on the Nintendogs Wikia.
I have made a test commit on my BFDI discussion article if he still checks pages.
Hello Sannse, BlazeSeed366 here. I have to report this user Latin915. Because he was bullying the other contributors like Anthony7470 regarding about the block he inflicted on him and other users without reason. This is the thread:
Latin915 frequently harrass him and does not accept the latter's faults and he's trying to inform some of you about it. Also, Latin915 needs some disciplinary action for his rudeness and bullying to users like us. Because on the prowrestling wiki he was currently working on, he never update the rest of the character profiles and he barred most contributors to write all these profiles and he undo the writings to stay as it is. So that him and other higher admins can handle themselves than all of us. The user Anthony7470 had suffered so much from Latin915 and he came to me to inform regarding this. And worse he never unblock anyone who apologizes for their mistakes because his own rules and content of that FANDOM site that he's working. This is his profile:
Haya. As admins are allowed to block for any reason, including no reason, FANDOM Staff rarely gets involved with local wikia issues which are not violations of TOU. "Being a bully", or rude, etc. is typically not enough.
Of all that you say here, about the only thing which might be actionable is "barred most contributors to write these profiles". That *almost* sounds like making the wiki "private".
Understand, the above reaction is not one of "defending him". It is the policy of how to handle drama from over 350K English-speaking wikias. Mostly hands-off until ToU is violated. And notice I said "rarely", not "never".
If anything, it's analogous to how parents mostly ignore their kids' antics until crying or breakage; they simply cannot respond to every moment of what the kids are doing…
Also, if people have asked you not to contact them and you still do, and they answer saying that they threaten to go to Fandom staff if you keep continuing, it is highly discouraged to complain on other users' walls saying not nice things about them, also advising others not to talk to them. That will only make it worse, and could get you into either a local or global block as well. I'm not saying that his behaviour is correct at all, but I am saying that what you're doing in response is definitely not right either. This is based on a local point of view (only on Community Central at least), and we would ask you to stop creating drama on other message walls about them.
Honestly, I'd like to take some discipline action on Latin915 for a good reason. If you tried a trash talk at him is just like I do, blocking them on the spot. Because this user does not apologizing to other users who made mistakes about their recent posts which he already undo them several times. And worse, he does not accept their apologies and harrassing them because he does not want to get insulted. I know his personality so well, he's pretentious so that he plays like a victim.
I do appreciate u guys trying to help me, but I think it's best for me to leave and shut down my account. Because there's nothing else I can do to stop this situation he's putting against me, I've been trying really hard to explain that I'm not the one causing this, were he's the one doing it, making it worse for me. I'm sorry, I just don't have a choice.
Hi Sannse! Why, when I inform Fandom’s Support Specialist (Discord, Russian channel Help and Support) about a bug in Fandom’s top menu, he ignores my message and advises me to send a letter to software engineers, while I’m driving and cannot send mail, while he is sitting on his computer and is inactive? Shouldn't he forward my message to the engineers? Quote: 'They're here to help you resolve issues you're having with the platform or send your message to the right person!'
Hey FunGorn, while I can't speak for Kuzura, most bugs are best reported to via Special:Contact because this makes sure your report is handled correctly. Kuzura may also have been busy - I usually use Discord on my phone and not at a computer! You never know if they were in a similar situation.
Regarding your particular issue - I don't see the same problem with the navigation bar, mine shows correctly. Did you maybe have some custom JS or CSS that makes the box go underneath?
At that time, I was driving a car and could not send a letter. And Discord shows which device the user is currently using. I already sent a bug report. I would not require a quick response if the problems were only in my wiki project, but I am surprised by the indifference of the staff.
It's not indifference, it's managing the time we have and the messages we get.
Using our email system means we have a record of the problem, we can get more information about the bug (email can be more detailed than a few lines in Discord), and we can more easily give you advice or create a bug ticket. It also means that the right person can give you advice. For example, I rarely work on technical issues.
It's also true that we can't always stop other work to reply directly to users, the only reason I'm here on this thread so quickly is that someone pointed this message out to me! Usually I only check my wall once or twice a day.
Quite often we have to focus on other tasks rather than directly talking to our users (although that's my favorite part of the job). Some of us are able to catch discord messages while we work on other stuff, but we may not be able to get into a deeper discussion about a technical problem.
I understand that you couldn't send a message right then, but it really is the best way to get in touch about technical issues (as well as sensitive social issues).
Extraordinary employment did not prevent the specialist from arguing with me for 12 minutes instead of quickly transmitting information to the engineers.
(I risk my life for the sake of Fandom's prosperity. :)
In Moscow traffic jams, I can always allocate 3-4 minutes for reading, but this time is not enough to send mail, because my phone is registered to another mail.)
Bug reporting isn't always a quick process. Sometimes we can have a look, see the problem and even fix it ourselves. But sometimes we have to go through a longer process: we gather all the information (location of the user, location of the bug, browser, OS, etc.), check to see if it's a known bug or one that's recently been reported a lot, test it ourselves on different set-ups, and (if we can't reproduce it, and there are no other reports) get the user to try several different steps to trouble-shoot. Then, if it's not fixed by that, we either fill out a form to report it to the techs, or let others in the team know to look out for it so we can confirm and get more information.
All this can take a while, including the time that it takes to send emails back and forth. But using email means we have a record of what's been done, so that we can see if there is a general problem and how many are affected by it.
Serious bugs with verification get higher priority that those that don't affect use of the site and are only seen by a few people. Low priority bugs can take a long time to be fixed (sometimes they simply never get to the top of the queue!)
But anyway, I wanted to explain this, but certainly don't want to argue with you 🙂 I'm sorry you didn't have a good experience on Discord.
(Also, please be careful! Wikis aren't worth an accident!)
