    • It wasn't for no reason (you changed a bunch of stuff after InternallyScreamingNo told you not to) and it's only 3 days. Just wait it out.

    • I looked at your contributions. You aren't fooling anyone.

    • The moderator is fooled, I was edited for fixing and later the day, he blocked me

        Loading editor
    • Your fixing was changing something the admin told you not to change.

      I looked into. Please stop lying.

    • I'm not lying and I'm not fixed

    • Just wait 2 more days.

    • You can say whatever you want, but I don't believe you and it won't change your block if you complain about it forever here.

    • Just Wait until the block expires :P, on the bright side be grateful that this isn't Reddit, where mods can ban you indefinitely.  

      If you've been blocked, it's very unlikely that it's because of administrative corruption (If you suspect otherwise, you should make a formal request to Fandom staff, but chances are they aren't going to believe you). I'm an administrator on three Wikis and I never block innocent users. You were blocked for a reason, and that is most likely your fault. Just accept it, and learn from your mistakes.

    • Actually, mods can block users indefinitely. But that is all the more reason to not blow a 3-day block out of proportion.

    • Um, no. We can't just randomly block users indefinitely, because we can get demoted for abusing authority.

    • By whom? In general, staff only intervene when there is a ToU violation. Other than that, the local community governs itself. Sure, bureaucrats can demote admins and admins can demote mods. However, that is based on local or even personal ideas about what is fair and what is not. There is no global policy saying that mods can't block users indefinitely nor is there a limitation built into MediaWiki.

    • FANDOM doesn't give mods block ability as far as I know. Let's not confuse mods with admins.

      Oh, you meant content moderation. No, they aren't given the blocking tool, but most Wikis don't use Content Moderators.

    • Yeah. Sorry for the confusion guys. I was just using the same terms as when RedIgnite was referring to Reddit. But the point is that users can get blocked indefinitely on FANDOM.

      It's alright mate. 

      However, you're wrong about getting blocked indefinitely, administrators are not allowed in general to block users permanently until (In my Wiki) they reached their third block or if they committed a severe rule infraction that lead to an immediate block (Like Sockpuppetry). However, blocking them permanently without good reason is forbidden, and can result in a demotion for abusing authority.

      Those parenthesis are a rather important qualifier. Anyways, there is no point in arguing in circles so unless there is a new reason to continue discussing it, this will be my last comment on indefinite blocks on this thread.
