Staff rarely if ever intervene. Admins can block at their own discretion. You can ask for leniency on the admin’s wall here on Community Central, but they don’t owe you an explanation or even an answer.
Yup. Sadly, as the guys above said, FANDOM is an advocate of admins doing whatever the hell they want as long as they don't break the ToU (I'm not sure how they would block someone and break them, maybe blocking them for racial issues). So I'm afraid there's nothing you can do unless that admin realizes that they blocked you for no reason.
Hello, Galaxy. I have taken a look at your situation. It appears the admin who blocked you is the founder of the wiki, which explains how he even has admin rights. Upon closer inspection, it becomes pretty clear that he is some kind of closeted troll (putting "Gay" under "Ethnicity" on his profile page infobox is a rather obvious sign, among others). In that sense, it doesn't surprise me that he immediately gave you 100 years on your first offense for "inserting false information", something that usually warrants only a simple warning. Unfortunately, is it unlikely that such a person will be reasonable enough to discuss a shortening of your block. Frankly, that wiki looks like a dump. You can find much better communities to be part of.
So I'm afraid there's nothing you can do unless that admin realizes that they blocked you for no reason.
Alternatively, the admin blocked for a legitimate reason, the OP just doesn't see it that way. We get a lot of complainers, and they're never not biased.
Yeah, it may be. I know I may sound a lot like I complain about admins but I can completely understand that sometimes. Some users only join to cause trouble, like the ones who only add fake information. Why give them a second chance?
Ignorance of the law does not excuse you from your obligation to follow it. Anyone who edits a wiki without reviewing local policies should be aware that they could be violating them. How the admins respond to a first-time offense is up to them and it could include a permanent ban. Most admins I have dealt with aren't that extreme but there is no policy stopping them from doing that if they wanted to. User can choose to not read the local policies but they do so at their own risk.
I don't know the exact reason why FANDOM staff are so laissez faire about admin behavior, but I can say that being an admin is 99% a thankless job. Being a moderator is a 99.9% thankless job and 25% painful job.
They can unblock you, but they choose not to. Looking at your message to ScottishTwins9and10 (the blocking admin) you should wait a few more days. If you want to help your cause, you should specifically ask what you can do to get unblocked.
The "parody account" of DonaId trunnp was *caught* right away. What took time was checking with Staff for disposition of how it should be dealt with. There have been several "donald trump" targeted accounts. Some blocked as libelous trolling, some for adding unacceptable elements to the username, and at least one with zero edits which was left alone.
This troll was blocked for their trolling activity more than the name.
TOU prohibits Impersonification. Which means *trying to present themselves AS another user or IRL person*. with over 7 billion souls on the planet, not only is it possible for at least 2 to have the exact same birth name, but to want to open accounts on FANDOM. Username collision issues aside, that is not a problem.
What makes it a problem is for Account A to try to pass themselves off as Account B. That is what violates FANDOM TOU.
