  • SilverFlight, thank you for your guidance on me. It's just, what am I going to do within the wiki after your resignation as admin?

  • For around 2 weeks to a month, the image galleries are redirecting all attempts at opening any image in a new tab back to the gallery items' respective parent page. This problem seems to universal across every Wiki I have visited, whether it is for the DC or Marvel comics, the Star Wars franchise or one chosen at random.

    Steps to reproduce the problem.

    1.) Go to the gallery link on https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Luke_Skywalker/Legends or directly to https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Images_of_Luke_Skywalker

    2.) Try right click opening the "File:10 Episode 4.jpg" (https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/File:10_Episode_4.jpg) using the "Open Link in New Tab" option. (It will redirect any attempt to "https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Wars_Episode_IV:_A_New_Hope_(novel)", but you can try this with any image gallery link on a Wiki of your choice)

    3.) Where as opening a link such as "https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/d/d9/Luke-rotjpromo.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20091030151422" works just fine without any complications.

    Please speak to whoever is in charge of redirects or the back-end database and find a way to fix this issue, it is extremly inconvenient and I'm sure other Wiki walkers must feel the same.

    • Hi anonymous, I understand your frustration as you desire to view images, but to only be pushed back to pages, when it is a massive surprise to see pushback like that. It can be annoying but it would be solved if you hear me out. Since December 4, 2019, this is done by default as so a search engine would improve SEO for wikis and their constituent pages. (source) However, you can bypass this software by simply creating an account.

  • Hi SilverFlight

    I was wondering if we could talk about Glee wiki future, start from this year. As you see, even though the series already ended since 2015, there's still a lot of contributor going around. Most of them are helping with their edit. However, there's a lot of them that isn't pretty much helping with their distruptive edit like opinion, fanfic, vandalism, etc.

    Since i start editing on this wiki, i've been looking up for any of this kind of edit. I have actually been meaning to ask for a right from one of the active staff, asking if they need couple of extra hand to help them. However, i decided to backdown as the both of staff didn't have any Bureaucrat right on them.

    With that, i was wondering if you could give me at least content moderator right on the wiki. I know that as Wiki Manager, you need at least ask the current staff about this. But since they haven't been active for at least 2 month, i think it's ok to give me the right and a month trial. At least with content moderator right, it will be much easy for reverting vandalism, as well as managing page and media content.

    Thank you.

    • Hi, you need to adopt a Wiki if you want rights in a Wiki without active admins. Asking a Wiki Manager for rights in a Wiki rarely works and I highly doubt SilverFlight will grant you one.

      Keep in mind that adoptions are closed until staff reopens them.

      The site I want admin rights on is https://cbs.fandom.com/wiki/CBS_Wiki

      Keep in mind that adoptions are closed until staff reopens them.

      I contacted a person that works in that segment for adoptions and his response is here: https://community.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:1789992#8, his response was very supportive and I’m still waiting for the reopening to happen.

      I actually been thinking about adopting the wiki for this last 3 month. However, with how many editor and issues on this wiki, i decided to opening up a discussio with SilverFlight's, as she is the wiki manager of the respective wiki.

      Thanks for the answer thou...

  • Hi again, there is something very suspicious going on regarding matters related to Desc Fan. I have screenshots and there’s a lot of things I want to consult with you with, so could I possibly contact you on Discord some time this weekend or when I have free time? Thanks.

    • Hi there, depending on my circumstances, it varies. However, you can definitely write me on Discord for discussing what the matter is. I should be able to communicate this weekend.

    • Hello SilverFlight,

      I am Francesca14601, also from the Descendants Wiki along with ChibiVixie. Several users of our wiki have received a message from this user Aeoleus. It was an apparent message that DescendantsFan82 had seemingly left for him (see original message here), and this message had been forwarded to us.

      However, I do not have any evidence to prove that these two users are, in fact, managed by the same person. Although, I do believe that this is entirely staged, aiming to make us believe that they are not related. My opinion is clear. They are the same person.

      Like my fellow Descendants Wiki member here has said, she will contact you on Discord and explain to you with more detail. I would appreciate if we could create a small group chat where we all can discuss this matter.

      Sincerely,

      Fran

  • I was not duplicating the Desccendants Wiki, I had created my own. I was attempting to create my own which was more comprehensive. I would appreciate it if you restored my Wiki. For clarification several of the entries on the Descendants Wiki were created by me. I felt the administrators overlooked certain entries which is why I created my own please contact me DescendantsFan82 (talk) 00:55, October 24, 2019 (UTC)DescendantsFan82

    • You were continuing to plagiarize articles from the Descendants Wiki; even though they were your own, you didn't bother changing them to at least sound different from the original. A week was given to see if you had changed and improved from the previous duplicate, and since you didn't, there was no alternative. I am sorry this happened, but it's not good to go around doing what you want and not consider the consequences.

  • Hey SilverFlight, I’m a moderator from the Descendants Wiki. Recently, we blocked the user DescendantsFan82 (https://descendants.fandom.com/wiki/Message_Wall:DescendantsFan82) for a month for creating unnecessary categories and pages and ignoring past warnings. So he decided to create his own wiki, All That is Disney’s Descendants Wiki (https://all-that-is-disneys-descendants.fandom.com/wiki/User_talk:DescendantsFan82).

    We were completely fine with this, until an admin noticed that he was directly copying and pasting all our text on several pages, including Mal, Jay, Carlos De Vil, Freddie, and Evie, with many others without any attribution to our Wiki on any of those pages. We confronted him about it and he claimed that many other wikis did it and used his many contributions to the Descendants wiki to justify his actions, which is completely irrelevant since many other users have contributed as well.

    Then I messaged him again, telling him that it is acceptable to copy and paste IF he gave attribution. I also included a link to Licensing for confirmation and warned him that if he continued doing this then I would report him. That was 9 hours ago and there has been no response or correction. However, when I checked the wiki activity on his wiki, his latest edits show that he was last active 2 hours ago, which means he is blatantly ignoring my second warning.

    The DW staff would like to hear your thoughts on this and the best course of action to take. I personally feel like he is doing it out of spite. I have left a link to the full thread below. Thank you.
