Not exactly the best idea to post something like that on another's message wall. If you suspect that an account is being used abusively, it is best that you contact FANDOM via Special:Contact to run a CheckUser search to see if the accounts are linked. CU requests are generally only fulfilled for a wiki's admins.
So the vandals as far as I can see are gone, finally. Anyway, the latest on the wiki is that Ali Rocky has returned, and his grammar is worse than ever. Now, I'm trying my best not to sound racist, but since everyone from the non-English speaking countries have joined the wiki (mythhunter, myth hunter007, Ali Rocky, etc), the quality of our articles have gone from just under wikipedia standard to kindergarten style. Honestly, they just don't learn no matter what you tell them. I had nearly 50 edits just yesterday making different articles actually readable. Ali Rocky, for example, puts a space before every single full stop so his sentences look like this: there are many things like this . these are : buter,bread,whiskey . Honestly it is agony to read.
I know what you're talking about. I don't really know how I could resolve this problem because they're not doing anything on purpose but something has to change. Boomer too has said he's really getting tired of cleaning up pages and what not. Our only option is to let them know they need to hone up on there grammar skills otherwise they will have to be punished, or restrict to just editing the forum. Maybe we can draft a new rule and add it to the Policy about minimum grammatical errors one can have that way we can protect the quality of the content in the wiki.
Hopefully the new rule will get everybody on the same page. If we were to just ignore the severe grammar problems going on, the wiki would no doubt fall in to obscurity.
The new "myth hunting group" Ali is proposing on the CNB sounds ridiculous. Everyone on that wiki is a myth hunting enthusiast. Creating a "group" to I guess make others angry is only going to cause a lot of disputes and create a flood of new articles that are total nonsense so people can get into this new group. I doubt we will be able to keep it around if it in fact goes through.
He's decided to start the group simply because he couldn't be a staff member on the Myths Wiki. He was at first going to have it off wiki (basically start his own wiki) but he was quickly made to change his mind by the other users. I agree with you, I think it's nonsense, just like Boomer does. We seem to be the only sane people left.
I'm just am a little weary of Ali. He just came back and is now causing problems. He's trying to gain popularity with the other users so he can have a more dominant role in decision making on the wiki. I may be wrong but this is how he is coming off. After Gunshow I really don't trust anyone. His proposal will most likely go through but if it starts to disrupt the wiki me, you or Boomer can unilaterally take it down (but let's just wait a couple of days). Back in the day Jeff made a lot of unilateral decisions in the name of protecting the wiki; now I see why. Let's just make sure nothing gets out of hand as new users are joining and we need to keep a handle on the situation.
As you have seen, whom we believe to be Jim has been making new accounts and vandalising the wiki. I decided to have a look to back up this theory and apparently Jim is doing something somewhere, evident by looking on gta-myths.wikia.com/wiki/special:listusers
Yeah it's probably him. Also if you come across any offensive images he uploads check their name because he is replacing the images we have on many article pages by uploading images with the same name.
Hey Rob. I'd watch out for this wiki. It is run by Awesomeboy2222 and Myth hunter and they are talking about incorporating myths into the wiki meaning they may use some of the myths wiki's info without permission.

Except I wasn't part of the hategroup. Shows how much you listen. Maybe if you took boomer's cock out of your ear you could hear all the logical criticism, but no. All you can hear is "white noise"
Was there ever any actual proof that The Funktasm was part of the hategroup? Because VaultBoy said it was just Jim, Rhem, TAA, Ragequit and himself, and that he and Ragequit didn't really participate. All Funktasm did was dislike Boomer, and as my timeline showed, there were some serious issues with Boomer's conduct.
Sorry for everything happening lately Rob. I'm coming out with info because I pretty much agree with you and boomer not doing anything and it just being a misunderstanding. Please don't tell anyone that I gave you this info and at best, delete this after reading. There is a secret facebook group conspiring against you and boomer and Jim is trying to make us edit on gta-mysteries.wikia.com. That's all I have and I hope all of this end soon.
You need to take down the bogus Forum post Gunshow started that has now gotten Wikia's attention. If this is true which I know it is, you must stand up and help us. Me and Boomer will have your back and Jeff is aready working on a detailed point by point timelime to unwind this whole thing for wikia. So just take down the Forum post and lets get this situation put behind us.
Anything will help at this point. BTW Jim blocked me infinitely on the Mysteries of gaming Wiki. I don't care but it just shows how unfit he is to handle special admin abilities. But really I need your help and you have to tell Jeff about Jim's scam.
I sent him the link to this and I see you did too. Also, I can't disable it as wikia re-opened it saying not to delete it. Another piece of info, Jim's plan is to make you disable it and get blocked by wikia.
Take screenshots of the Facebook page. Everything that might be relevant. Don't post them publicly (I think Wikia has rules about outing someone's real life name and identity), but be ready to show them to any inquiring Wikia staff. Maybe make a private account on photobucket and post them there?
Also, demote and indef block anyone on GTA Myths Wiki who's part of this secret Facebook group. If they have to conspire on a secret site to try and undermine a Wikia site, then their complaints are completely invalid and they have no business participating on the wiki. However, you'll have to be able to prove to Community Central that this is going on.
I have the images. As the facebook group was deleted by Jim, I can only show you the chat which he forgot to remove. These are just three segments but in all you can see that Jim is behind everything. The chat is called "REMOVE BOOMER FROM THE PREMISES" although it has had several names in the past. The secret facebook group had several names as well, the last known one being "Boomer Removal Squad".
If they make a new wiki, all you can really do is keep an eye on them and watch for them to plagiarize - Wikia cares about things like plagiarism, but they don't give a damn about interpersonal disputes.
