  • The founder of the wikis should be the ones blocking others not digifiend and Nbajammer

  • You called me a criminal because uploading videos that aren't mine? I'm nice

    • I didn't say you were a criminal, my colleagues are. But either way they're not gonna let you back into any Tokusatsu Hub Wiki.

      The US government will use any excuse to forward their copyright laws including letting someone who connected an illegally uploaded video or audio to a wiki back on said wiki (which unfortunately means you and a couple other guys even if there was no malicious intent and/or if it was an accident), which will cut off our only source of information (the illegal fan-subs unfortunately, we don't have guys stationed in Japan who can translate it without uploads) and our wikis won't have any new content and we'll lose viewers.

      If they were streamed legally, this wouldn't be a big issue but Toei does not distribute their tokusatsu franchises internationally or on the web, not full episodes at least.

      Do I wish that you came back on and fill in some missing info, yeah no one else including me seems to bother. Can I do it? No, I already explained why. I also wish my colleagues stopped calling you a criminal and explained it to you in better terms such as how Aldo the Fox explained concepts to me (as I just bold faced for you) and not just say it's in the rules or because they're in charge, but nothing's that simple.

      And for your own good don't go barking up those colleagues' backs, you'll probably drag other people into your problems and you'll just reaffirm their choice.

  • Hi,

    I saw your message to B-Fighterfan about copyright.  We wouldn't close a wikia just because someone uploaded a full episode, we would just remove it if we saw it or if someone complained about it.

    We also would be unlikely to give a global block for one upload, depending on the wider situation.  We usually start by telling people that they can't do that, and go from there

    I just wanted to clarify, perhaps you could pass that info on to other admins involved

    Thanks

    • That's just it Aldo, I checked the copyright law and it only applies to the uploader of the videos' source. Those sites that provide links to illegal videos on different sites are technically legal since they don't host illegal content. Besides people who share illegal videos don't usually have anthing bad happen to them since they hardly know any better and it wasn't their content just the video's uploaded source.

      B-fighter told me that he got the videos off dailymotion (which they were still on) and the IP address for their uploader and his were different (they can still be found, even after they were removed). I know that he can't be left off the hook, but what bothers me is that he gets treated like a criminal when those videos weren't even his. Even if it is a policy, that doesn't mean that people have to be a bunch of jerks about it.

      That last sentence sums up why we do bans perfectly. They don't know any better and in some cases do it intentionally and repeatedly.

      Given what happened to both Trdeathwing on KRwiki and B-fighter, this is unfortunate and some procedure should be addressed to offenders if it was not done out of malice. Still, some form of punishment must be done to let them know what they did was wrong.

      Leniency is not something we should offer in abundance to those who break the rules. We need to draw a line somewhere.

      It's harsh, and if it's any consolation, I hated myself for banning Trdeathwing (and still do), I don't like being the bad guy, but you have to understand that we can only tolerate so much before it gets out of hand.
