    So, i never spammed. suddenly, i go to make a comment, and see that TheEmbracedOne Had blocked me on the hollow knight wiki for a YEAR, for supposedly Spamming.



    I never spammed,so i have no clue what went down.

    there arent any screenshots, or specifics. so yeah. i need some help.

    • You'd do best to talk to him directly on community central. 

      Link to his Page

      This will allow you ask what was meant by spam, if he has not already explained. You can also then plead your case, if you think he has made a mistake, and you can decide what to do from there.

      Bear in mind, an admin can block for any reason. If he isn't breaking "Terms of Use", he doesn't have to unblock you, and that's within site rules . . . so - if things don't go your way - it could be best just to wait out the ban and see how things go next year.

      I assume that is why you are blocked for "spam".

    • Also, if you are not sure why you are blocked for that particular reason, try check your previous contributions to this fan-wiki.

    • Beat me to it. I would call that vandalism rather than spam but whatever.

    • That would be considered more of vandalism, rather than spam.

      Well, we at least sort of guessed why he is blocked

    • All of this analysis is likely to have no impact on the block.

    • right, so from what i read it said warning, then MONTH ban, but the TheembracedOne changed Sumwan's 2 week ban to an entire year and stated the block as spam...

      so yeah. dunno why it was changed from 2 weeks to a year, without any warning like the rules stated

      Edit: embracedOne Had it set to two weeks, before he changed it to a year, and also.. didnt the conduct thing state you were gonna be warned before any punishment was given?

    • Well, regardless, your best shot remains contacting TheEmbracedOne via their message wall here on Community Central. Also, just a point of clarification, TheEmbracedOne is not an admin but a wiki manager; in case anyone cares to know.

    • Yeah, you'll have to discuss this with TheEmbracedOne yourself about that

    • Hi,

      To clarify a few things:

      • Edits such as this  might not always get you a warning, but a direct ban because of point 1 above, and because it is a demonstration that you do not possess common sense when it comes to editing Wikis (why did you think it was OK to make such an edit?). 
      • Note that as per rules of conduct,
      Registered users may receive a month ban
      for first offences, depending upon the severity
      of the vandalism and mod discretion."
      Note the may and the mod discretion.
      • You've also made two comments that broke the rules of conduct that have been deleted:
      getting your face clapped in by a anthro-Blimp
      is not a fun experience, mind you
      and
      I fought him with the old nail, and only the
      soul catcher and the quick dash. due to low
      preporation, he gained the name SALT MASTER.


      We have been dealing with vandals and spammers lately and have adopted a stricter approach towards those who demonstrate unwillingness to familiarise themselves with the rules of the Wiki and demonstrate no sign of valuable contributions.  You are still free to use the Wiki as a reader while banned, but you will not be able to make edits. Hope I answered all your questions and thank you for your understanding.

      Yes and no, actually. The Hollow Knight Wiki is under my adminship and has been for over two years, from before I took on becoming a WM. I do not act on the HK Wiki in my WM capacity, solely in my admin capacity.

    • Thanks for clearing it up, and sorry agian, i really do lack common sense.

        Loading editor
    • Also, just clarifying that i cannot edit my profile, or is it just articles?

    • The only thing you can edit on that wiki is your own message wall.

        Loading editor
    • Alright, Thanks. I now understand the year, so yeah. just kinda gotta wait out my punishment.

      Honestly, got nobody to blame except myself.

    • Wait a month and then ask TheEmbracedOne if there are any ways to reduce your block time. Doing things like consistently adding good contributions to another wiki to demonstrate you've learned your lesson can sometimes go a long way to proving you've reformed.

      However, ultimately it is up to the admins at each wiki. FANDOM gives them this privilege, and there really isn't anything outsiders can really do to change that.

    • Alright then. Basically cyber-community service.

    • Can somebody note for me that the Volalite Mosskin, Furious Vengefly, Volatile Gruzzers, And Oomas Are the only mobs (i belive) That have exploding corpses that deal damage. (I say that because some corpses like Slobbering husks only visually explode)

    • You mean make an edit for you on that wiki?

      I'd have to look closer into ToU, but I know a lot of wikis frown on that and see it as a form of ban evasion. I've seen people being blocked for making edits for other banned people. 

        Loading editor
    • Oh, Dont want to do THAT!

      I guess ill keep making good edits on the dont starve wiki and wait out my block then.

      You have to be a major a-hole admin to consider suggesting legit edits as ban evasion. Either way, I doubt it is a ToU violaton. That would almost make being friends with a blocked user a ToU violation.

    • Also, Somebody should note that you have to kill 3 mantis traitors to begin the traitor lord fight.

      Another note, The Stalwart Shell And Quick Slash strat for just tanking works great for hiveknight and second hornet fight
