Hello, Sannse. How are you? I messaged you about my problem on MarioWiki.
I have a conflict with another user which the argument looks like to be my fault. I know this user is defensive and upset, but he should understand about assuming good faith. I tried to message the bureaucrat about the incident, but he is inactive now. I posted a link on the bureaucrat's wall here. If it was my fault to offend the user, I want to know how to solve it and the wiki can get along together.
Good morning,I’m a wiki user I’m a young person with autism and I am very sad at the moment because I haven’t been understood by your system,unfortunately I don’t understand many wards in your rules,and that course of very sad situation,like blocking’s of the pages that I was very interested and happy to be part of . My parents help me out on understand the rules and I’m going to respect in the future. Please let me be part of the wiki fandom again and unblock the pages. Thank you 🙏 for your time.
Hi Sannse, 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. The 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?
The closing of "Wikia lyrics" is an absolute shame. You are fanatical fascists. I will use all my energies to expose your violence. Shame on you!
To satisfy your prudery, you have closed a very important cultural page. I have personally transcribed thousands of Italian songs that did not exist on the web before. I spent 4 years of my life to do a job that you destroyed in a minute.
You are totally stupid, a real idiot, believe me. Frank
Frank Zappa would have laughed for hours at this bullshit. You can't censure Art! If you really wanted you could put a "parental advisor" for the most extreme texts. That wikia was an important resource for everyone and must remain open.

Tfw you continue to butcher the biggest wikis—actually, at this point, all wikis that aren’t completely related to fans dwelling about things—while more and more wikis are forking; also doing your best to drive away the most users you can in the process even though you do not even consider the slightest possibility that those users make you money in the first place and that they’re kind of an integral part of the wiki sphere. I get that y’all think this “100% advertiser-friendly” dumbed down content with nothing sensitive™ will improve your money flow, but I don’t think you get that with the dumbed down approach, you will continue to lose users and therefore, lose money (as if Fandom isn’t losing money already). But then again, even before this aggressive dumbing down, you have shown absolutely 0 care for the users, you think the users here should just suck it up and you’re the emperors, which is not exactly true. That’s evidenced by the fact that long-term abusers have more leverage than long-term members who happen to disagree with how this site is being run. An LTA getting blocked months after actually earning it, meanwhile, a noted, respected member who has been here for over a decade gets blocked infinitely for an actually funny meme about the staff? Or how a bureaucrat who spaned his bureaucratship for over a decade got demoted just because he dared to disagree with portable infoboxes? Not to mention the global blocks of admins after forks, what’s the point, what will it solve? Oh wait, it won’t solve anything, it’s to show off your e-power. Don’t you think that’s kind, uhm . . . Sad? Remember, just because there are Fandombots who just nod their heads to everything and annoy others about their arguments, it doesn’t change the fact that you have very much to lose with the frequent, unreasonable, global blocks, alongside stuff like this and the uncyclopedia closure, just to make it “family-friendly,” while you’re actually shooting yourself in the foot.
By the way, thanks for the permanant global block for “spam,” whatever that meant. I would’ve left myself, but with the global block, I officially have the “don’t come back” label. I have no idea why I was subjected to it, but I don’t mind it. Not like I want to be in a place where unreasonable checkusers, outings, piggybackings, editing people’s comments and making it seem like they’ve done it themselves, and permanant global blocks are the norm just because you hurt a volunteer’s and/or staff member’s feelings, note that actual trolls and vandals have not been subjected to the noted unless they’ve done the thing again even after everyone got fed up with it, while you (yes, you, who is reading this essay) can be subjected to the noted even if you just once say something that isn’t the same opinion as a staff member’s or a volunteer’s. I’d just like to remind you that if you keep this up, Fandom will pretty much just be vandals and spammers. But it seems like you want it to be that, at this point.
What content is/was the problem, and are there any plans to reopen it? It would also be nice to have a notice on the main page of the site explaining this - it took me several minutes to find my way here to ask about this.
The problem was extreme racist and explicitly sexual lyrics, including white supremacy and very violent sexual content. Working online, I'm pretty much unshockable, but some of this stuff honestly shocked me.
You are right that a main page notice wold be sensible, I will add that today.
Sannse, you are so stupid! You could simply put a "parental advisor" for the most extreme texts. You are imposing on hundreds of people to continue a work of great cultural importance. There are millions of songs that have made the history of world culture.
