Page protection Edit

Hello, sorry to bother you again. I just wanted to know if pages can be protected against creation? I am not an administrator on Wikipedia, but from what I can figure, there must be a protect tab at the top when coming to a non-existent page on Wikipedia, just like any other page. But I see no protect tab when coming to non-existent pages on Deckipedia, does this mean that the protection [create=sysop] is not enabled on Wikia? Thanks for your help. DragonBallZ 17:36, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

I figured that out. Thanks. But is the protection like I mentioned not enabled on wikia? DragonBallZ 03:06, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
Thats good, do you know how far in the future? Also, could you tell me how Wookiepedia got there bot user group renamed to droid? I like to know technical stuff like this. I hope you do not mind me asking these questions. DragonBallZ 03:32, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
Ok, thanks much. Cheers. DragonBallZ 04:32, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Question about a WikiCity I created Edit

Dear Angela:

I've learnt that all the wikicities were turned into Wikias, and that the person that creates a Wikia now is by default the admin or sysop or something. Does that apply to me and the Animal Crossing Wikia? Also, there is another Animal Crossing Wikia out, spec. for the DS version, but it only has 9 articles. Should they be merged?

Reply whenever possible.

- --Aeryka 05:14, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Merging the 2 wikis Edit

Dera Angela:

I think it would make alot of sense because...

1. The AC Wikia was made first. 2. The AC Wikia is, and always was, intended for all games in the Animal Crossing series. 3. The other Wikia only has 9 articles. 4. People may go to that Wikia looking for content that would be on ours.

--Aeryka 05:42, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

gijoe wikia Edit

I know a user on Joepedia that would like administrator access, do you think you can help. The only bureaucrat seems to be inactive. DragonBallZ 09:19, 13 February 2008 (EST)

I've made him an admin. Angela@fandom (talk)

Request for permissions on Half-Life wiki Edit

Hello Angela. I'm hoping that you can grant me additional permissions on the Half-Life wiki.

Quite frankly, the administration staff (all two of them) is completely dead; one admin hasn't edited since December 6, 2007, while the local 'crat hasn't done anything since January 1, 2008. The site itself isn't dead, so it can't quite be up for adoption, but there's certainly nobody in charge around there...

What I'd like is to be granted both adminship and bureaucrat permissions; the former so I can start protecting some critical pages (for example, the background image is disturbingly unprotected), the later so I can help further foster the community by promoting additional administrators from the active users. I've contacted the local 'crat about adminship,[1] but haven't heard back from him. Because of his inactivity, I'd like to just out-right replace him as local bureaucrat, as I don't have much faith in him coming back, not to mention that I don't want to be the sole active admin forever. :)

Brief history about me, I suppose... I currently hold adminship on 4 WMF projects: the English Wikipedia (my home project: 24k+ edits, admin for over a year and 3 months), Meta, Commons, and Wikispecies. You can see my complete wiki-matrix at m:User:EVula/matrix. I'm no wiki-newbie, and I'd like to do what I can to get this project back up and running.

Thanks in advance. EVula // talk // 02:05, 14 February 2008 (EST)

Forumadmin Edit

Could you tell me what the forumadmin user group is? Also, here. Thanks. DragonBallZ 03:08, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

forumadmin is related to the phpBB forums which some wikis have, but it has a few bugs so isn't being rolled out to all wikis yet. Angela@fandom (talk) 03:46, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for your help on both things! Cheers. DragonBallZ 14:32, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Joepedia adminship Edit

I would just like to say thank you for making me an admin for Joepedia. Many thanks!! --Destron Commander 09:28, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Any chance of someone on the community team responding as and when when you can to my posting on Forum:Issues with adds? Thanks Philralph 10:26, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Admin of StargatePedia Edit

Why is User:SGCommand no longer an admin on the wiki? How can I keep my status?--SGCommand 19:59, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I do want to keep being an admin. I also have to admit though that my contribution may be rather limited as I am saving for a holiday.--SGCommand 11:47, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Manga wiki Edit

Could you make me a bureaucrat on http://en.manga.wikia.com/? Myself and Dantman are going to make it a part of Wikia ACG, and I need to be able to give him the access he needs. Thanks for your help. Cheers. DragonBallZ 02:27, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Please see the email sannse sent you about this already. Angela@fandom (talk) 20:47, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Copyright IssueEdit

Hi Angela, a student of mine made some logos for use by a campus organization and uploaded them to the ecology wikia as a convenient way for folks to vote. It turns out that they violate Saint Michael's College trademarks in two instances: 1 2 I have requested through your copyright person on behalf of the college that they be removed but to no avail. SO, any chance of having them removed? I don't have the access to delete them. Feel free to contact me by email: dmccabe@smcvt.edu Declan 03:08, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Wiki Url Edit

Hi, thanks for the approval of the Materia Magica Wiki.

However I have some issues regarding the site url. The problem is that using materiamagica.wikia.com would be too long and inconvenient. I suggested alyria.wikia.com initially when i requested the wiki, but for some reason it was not used. I would appreciate if I could know why it cannot be used. If alyria.wikia.com is really impossible, then I would still suggest an alternative like mm.wikia.com. (Which I don't know if it meets the requirements?)

Anyway, thanks for you time

Arthialas 11:20, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

This has been changed. Angela@fandom (talk)

Ice Hockey Wiki and NHL Wiki Edit

Hi Angela,

we at the ice hockey wiki have noticed that the NHL wiki is now being edited very sporadically by a single user. Considering our wiki covers that subject and has a much broader scope, we (the admins of IHW) would like to ask you if it would be possible to merge the NHL wiki into ours. We think both projects would benefit from this move, be it by growth in size, quality and active users. Do you think that move would be possible? Please answer me here: http://icehockey.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Yannzgob --Yannzgob 00:55, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi again Angela,

the NHL wikia side has agreed for the merger :) So when you have some free time, you can begin transferring their wiki into the Ice Hockey Wiki. Thank you very much --Yannzgob 15:48, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

The merge is now done. Angela@fandom (talk)

Pokemon wiki Edit

Recently the wiki has been receiving a lot of vandalism and currently there are no active admins so they have to wait around for a janitor to come by and clean up the mess. User:MarioGalaxy2433g5 has been helpful on the wiki by reverting vandalism and contacting janitors and is active on the wiki in general so I recommend making him an admin. Would you please consider it. Thank you very much.--Rayman254 00:22, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

MarioGalaxy2433g5 was already made an admin by Phil.e. in January. Angela@fandom (talk)

LocalSettings.php for Custom Bionicles Edit

Hi Angela,

Can you please change the logo for Custom Bionicles to this image please at LocalSettings.php?Thanks,--The Oracle23 00:41, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

The image just needs to be renamed Image:Wiki.png (lower case png) and it will work. However, it needs to be no larger than 150px square. Angela@fandom (talk)

Cherub admin Edit

Hello,

I am Darth tom Chit 'n' Chat 17:23, 28 February 2008 (UTC), and I am interested in becoming an administrator on the Cherub wiki, as there are no active administrators. How do I go about doing this? Thanks. Darth tom Chit 'n' Chat 17:23, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

You're now an admin. Angela@fandom (talk)

IRC CloakEdit

Hi Angela, I'd like an IRC Cloak when you have a moment. I have completed the necessary nickserv actions. -- LordTBT Talk! 00:56, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

No admins on LBT Wiki Edit

Hello, I am one of the few registered users on the Land Before Time Wiki [3]. The founder and only Sysop of the Wiki has been AWOL since May 2007 [4], and as a result me and the other users have had few ways of fighting vandalism effectively. I would like to request that my account, User: 4myself4, and if possible, User:76.179.50.96 be granted administrative powers. Aabicus 06:54, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

sannse has done this. Angela@fandom (talk)

Thefreedomencyclopedia Edit

hello Angela my name is donald landryII from maine i have requested a new wiki about a free encyclopedia. I hope people would take the time to consider accepting this wiki. I have tried and tried to establish my own wiki and it has not worked i have tried many other websites but no luck i hope here people will join the wiki and make it into something special thank you Angela for taking the time to read. Don LandryII --Saugusmassa 15:45, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Wikia doesn't duplicate existing Wikimedia projects like Wikipedia or Wiktionary. If there's a specific topic you're interested in, you are welcome to request that. Angela@fandom (talk)

changes Edit

Hi Angela,

Is there a way to get automatically informed of any changes of functions (new functions, functions which were deleted, ...) and communications-tools (forum, chat etc)? Its quite difficult to get an overview of the immense possibilities to communicate or participate in Wikia Search and to be up to date of any changes.

Thanks, Stefan

Bot Edit

Just wondering: Is there a reason why local bureaucrats cannot grant and remove bot flags? I don't need it done, just asking. Thanks. DragonBallZ 02:20, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

I think this was just to prevent abuse since every wiki founder is automatically a bureaucrat, and it's better for someone else to check a bot is approved before adding a flag. Angela@fandom (talk)
I see, that makes sense. Thanks :) DragonBallZ 16:39, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

http://wikiangela.com/wiki/Special:Statistics is buggy Edit

http://wikiangela.com/wiki/Special:Statistics is buggy 89.14.195.47 19:01, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I know. That's the problem with non-Wikia-hosted wikis - they get bugs and there are not 2 dozen engineers waiting to fix them. ;) Angela@fandom (talk)

Username filter Edit

Would it be possible to install some sort of username blacklist or something? We are getting quite a lot of accounts being created with very inappropriate usernames. While this would normally not be an issue as the New User Log extension isn't installed, Recentchanges on Gaming is not very work-safe because of it. --Skizzerz talk 03:52, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

There is a blacklist for repeat spammers, but not for users who have only created accounts. Once the gaming wiki is moved to the regular Wikia codebase, this won't be a problem since not all users are displayed in Special:Listusers. Angela@fandom (talk)

About ManticoreEdit

He's wreaking havoc on the RuneScape Wikia. Someone created a nonsense page on it called "Light bow". The page is based on an already existent item called the Dark Bow. The company who created RuneScape made a sketch of the Dark Bow, colored white. So the person who made the article decided to make a nonsense page about the white version which is just a sketch.

I labelled it with the speedy deletion tag, and Manticore blocked me and claimed I was "vandalizing". Something has to be done. 67.68.37.7 15:26, 7 March 2008 (UTC)


Have you read about my problems with the spam system? Edit

Did you read Forum:Can't create page on Wiki I admin because it looked like Spam? Sysops should be able to create any page bypassing the spam filter as needed. Such pages might be valid. Will (Talk - contribs) 01:08, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

It appears that what blocked my edit was, get this, the name of the page. Real stupid. Will (Talk - contribs) 01:26, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Never mind. Fixed it. Will (Talk - contribs) 02:15, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Interwiki Links Edit

Hi Angela,

It seems that recently interwiki links have stopped working.When I type [[Wikia:c:bionicle:Earth|Earth]],it leads me to a wiki about Global Warming.When I try an irregular name(such as Metru Nui,etc.) under [[wikia:c:bionicle]],it says that it is an invalid wiki,although it does exist.

Please get back to me ASAP on my talk on Custom Bionicles.

Thanks,

--The Oracle23 03:00, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

This is also effecting all the Wikia interwiki links that Wikipedia is using. -- Ned Scott 07:39, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
It seems to have been fixed now. -- Ned Scott 23:02, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
Odd. I'm not sure what caused that, but Wikia:c:bionicle:Earth is now working correctly. Angela@fandom (talk)


Ghostbusters WikiEdit

Hey, I've recently stumbled upon an empty, abandoned wiki. I've been editing it heavily over the past few days and was wondering if I could be made an admin? It's abandoned, but I've recruited a couple of friends to help out. Just trying to figure out how to get an admin on there that can help with deletions, etc. --TrumpetManLA 22:35, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Wikiscrolls Edit

Hi Angela. Can you please make me an administrator of Wikiscrolls. I have been editing there for a while and have done more work than anyboady else, also both the sites admin have abandoned the project and loads of spam keeps flooding in which I can't control. I edit there under the user name Vladen Impalen. If you could make me an admin I would be really gratefull as it's a project i'm really keen to get of the ground. - Lord KAJ Company Office 17:13, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

I've left you a message on the Elderscrolls wiki. Angela@fandom (talk) 17:22, 14 March 2008 (UTC)
Ah this is great! Thanks for this opertunity, I've been trying to turn Wikiscrolls around for quite some time but there is one user who floods the place with pornographic spam every single day so progress has been practically non existent, I 'm going to make a really go of this wiki thanks again for the opertunity. - Lord KAJ Company Office 17:35, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Extension request for Pikipedia Edit

At the Pikipedia, we would like to know whether it's possible to get the AddHTML extension installed. The current reason is so that an IRC-based chatroom can be set up: the extension is required for the HTML involved to work. We feel that the addition of a chatroom would be useful in building up the community at the wiki, and that it would be another reason for visitors to stay. Please reply at c:Pikmin:Forum:Chatroom or c:Pikmin:Pikmin talk:Chatroom. - Greenpickle(talk) 19:38, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Bureaucrat in Age of Empires Wiki Edit

Hello Angela, it's the Son of the Witch-King and I wondered if I could become a bureaucrat for the Age of Empires Wiki because though I am already a admin for the wiki I am not a bureaucrat. So I have already contacted the Age of Empires Wiki's main admin, but no response had come because really the only active admin is me. So if you could promote me I would be very thankful.

--Son of the Witch-King 00:54, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Sigh... Edit

Do you recall that there was another RuneScape wiki with poor content? I have a complaint about them. Actually, I have SEVERAL complaints: allow me to explain.

I don't know WHY or HOW this happened.

I was on the Internet last night. I had only ONE browser up and no other programs open. In that browser, there was only ONE tab. I decided to visit that wiki to see how they were doing. When I arrived, a pop-up message advertising a autolevelling macroing program (illegally, obviously), popped up and I simply brushed it aside. Then my computer's virus scan started running, but then, before it finished, the whole thing just crashed. That's right: their wiki is infected with a VIRUS. And my computer GOT that virus.

I went to the forums to complain. I did so, and they blocked me, giving me the reason:

You have been banned for the following reason:
Go back to your Wiki then. This site does NOT contain viruses.
Date the ban will be lifted: Never

So they're trying to cover up the fact that they don't care that our new computer gave us a virus. I've had it with them: I'm reporting them to you and to the RuneScape officials of Jagex for breaking RS rules.

If something can be done, I'd really appreciate it --Stinkowing 13:01, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

They are right, the wiki itself does not have a virus. It's either the Google ads or you have spyware on your computer because you went to a site like what you mentioned and ran into an ActiveX script or downloaded something you shouldn't have. Jagex will not do anything, because the RuneScape Wiki community, let alone Wikia, has no control over how you take care of your computer. I know this for a fact because we have ran into similar problems at FFXIclopedia before we moved to Wikia with users having complaints about ads with 3rd party programs. Wikia can only add filters to google ads that they find are harmful. So the only thing you can do is be more careful about clicking ads and taking care of your computer and browsing experience. I recommend either disabling ActiveX in Internet Explorer, or use Firefox and install NoScript. Either way, neither Wikia or the Runescape community is at fault here. --User? 13:23, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Botflags Edit

Haj Angela :) Special:Makebot does not exist on wikia wiki's. Is it possible to give botflags on another way? --Oos Wes Ilava (Bès) 18:46, 19 March 2008 (UTC)


Revoke admin status Edit

Ciao,

I'm Pericle, bureaucrat of Nonciclopedia.

We have 4 very old administrators, they are absent since more than 8 months ago and probably they will never come back. So we decided to make a vote for revoking their admin status. The results of the vote are there (unanimity): Parliament.

So we ask you if you could revoke the admin status to these users:

See you! --Heavymachinegun 12:45, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I'm Mitch 1 2, and Mitch_1_2 @ freenode. May I have a Wikia cloak, please? --Mitch 1 2 08:30, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Freenode can't do cloaks with underscores, so it is set to Mitch12 instead. I hope that's ok. Angela@fandom (talk) 09:09, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Kongregate wikiEdit

Hi there, I'm was thinking of restarting http://kongregate.wikia.com, but first, would it be possible to change the namespace "Kongregate's Wiki" to "Kongregate Wiki"? I'm thinking that it could lead to some problems down the road if the apostrophe makes it sound like the wiki is sponsored or endorsed by Kongregate or something of the sort. Thanks, Tesfan 00:10, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Admin Status Edit

Hi, I'm from the Yu-Gi-Oh! Wiki and I was wondering if you could make me an admin or bureaucrat since I am one of the most active users. I have asked Steriaca but he hasn't been on for several days. And he is the only bureaucrat there. So once again, could you make me an admin or bureaucrat?
U. D. K. / Contribs 02:19, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Well, Steriaca is back, and says he will make me a bureaucrat, he just doesn't know how. So, could you possibly tell him how to give people admin or bureaucrat status. Thanks.
U. D. K. / Contribs 00:49, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Need For Speed Wiki Edit

Hi Angela. User:Some Color Mage and I are looking to adopt the Need For Speed Wiki. It has been inactive for an extremely long time, as if the editors just dumped it once it was created.

Hey Angela, I'll be going on holiday for a week and a bit, so anyone who requests adminship on any of my wiki's, which I will list below, claiming I'm inactive, can you tell them that I'm merely on holiday? Thanks. My wiki's are listed below:

The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness wiki

The Edge Chronicles wiki

The ITFC wiki

Fashion wikia help Edit

Hi Angela. Right now I'm the only active user on the Fashion Wikia and I have a few issues that I need help with:

1. Is it acceptable for me to import images from Wikipedia as well as text, and if so, how should I tag the images?

2. Could you or another user help me copy some template code (such as the infobox code) to the wiki? I tried doing this on my own and had trouble.

3. Is their any way we could get this wiki to rank higher on google search when someone searches for "clothing wikia"? (The URL is http://fashion.wikia.com, so would it be possible to create a mirror URL entitled "clothing.wikia.com"?)

4. On some articles, when I add "Template:Wikipedia", the Wikipedia logo image shows up as a link to the image instead of the image. Can you help me fix this?

5. Can you please help show me how to change the top content (e.g. the "editor's pick")?

Thank you. I'll let you know if I need anymore help.--SGK 22:59, 29 March 2008 (UTC)


Auto-confirm upload settings on Digimon Wiki Edit

Hi Angela, I was wondering if you could set the following for Digimon WIki:

Digimon Wiki needs a settings change for uploading images, due to image vandalism. Uploading should be restricted to auto-confirmed users only.

Thanks. -- Ned Scott 03:22, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

I've listed this to be done by the tech team. Angela@fandom (talk) 09:25, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! -- Ned Scott 06:11, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
This should be working now. Angela@fandom (talk) 07:57, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Awesome, thank you very much. -- Ned Scott 07:39, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi there. I have a question on hiring Edit

I would like to work for Wikia. I just do not know if Wikia hires foreign people (I live in Colombia). My english level is advanced, you can check my contributions and judge by yourself. I expect some comments if you have the time... I would like to know if I can work for Wikia from here or if I can be an admin or something, if being admin has any advantage. Also, I would like to be the admin or owner or whatever in Biology Wikia. I have adopted that Wiki because I love Biology too much. Check my user page if you want to know about me. I was also a Wikipedian in Wikipedia, in English and Spanish. I also speak some French. I am a software developer too.

I just hope you check some of my articles. They are in Biology Wiki, The Godfather The Game Wiki and Gaming Wiki. My site is http://go.to/parques but it is down for maintenance. Check sometime, maybe I will fix it soon... Davichito 17:49, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi Davichito. Wikia hires people all over the world. The Community Team alone cover 5 continents! Our current openings are listed on the hiring page. Of course, you don't need to get hired to get involved. I'll make you an admin on the biology wiki so you can adopt that. If you're interested in getting involved in the Spanish language wikis as well, you should talk to Juan David who is based in Chile and check out Wikia's Spanish portal. Angela@fandom (talk) 07:57, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Quick QuestionEdit

Hi Angela, I have a quick question for you. I've been browsing Wikia, and saw that each Wikia set up comes with a mailing list. Can you tell me how to set it up for my Wikia? Eu(Talk!Contribs) 23:09, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

I can make that for you. Is it for the warriors wiki? Angela@fandom (talk)
Yes it is. Thanks Angela! Eu(Talk!Contribs) 18:51, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for setting it up, but I was wondering, is their a guide for how to work everything? Eu(Talk!Contribs) 14:24, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
Hi, it's me again. This may be a stupid question, but, as far as I understand, it seems that all I have to do to post on the newsletter is email the address. Is that true? Thanks again,
Eu(Talk!Contribs) 19:11, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Offer to helpEdit

Hi, My name is Jeffrey Schmidt

Hi, I would like to donate some of my time and I don't need money. I like designing and reviewing video games and I am learning how to design web pages both on my own and thru college. I would be happy to help out in any way possible. Please email me back at <email removed> with what you think. Thank you for your time and I hope I can be of some use!

Thanks for offering to help. I'll send you an email. Angela@fandom (talk) 07:57, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

New NamespaceEdit

Hi Angela, I'm from the RuneScape wiki and we're planning to request a new namespace soon. We have nearly full community support, just one oppose and have had consensus declared for a few weeks now. We're having a bot move the pages, and the admins will delete the redirects themselves. I proposed that we move pages to something like E: (as the new namespace we need is Exchange:), but that has yet to be finalized. We don't want the new namespace to count as articles, as they are more like "random chunks of data" (as one admin put it) that we have found ways to utilize in more than 3 different ways, from just one page of information. I just wanted to give you a heads up that this is something we'll be coming to you to request, most likely within the next week or so. Thanks :) Christine 00:52, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Nevermind, KyleH took care of it :) Christine 22:48, 1 April 2008 (UTC)


Need a new admin to help me outEdit

Hi, Angela. I've been the administrator of the Monster Hunter Wiki for more than a year and it now has more than 1,000 pages. I'm going to need help with the wiki now from someone who has the same powers as I do. This is where a friend of mine comes in. She has been a member in the wiki since September, has uploaded more than 100 images, edited more than 500 times, and set up more than 50 templates. I personally know her as mature enough to do the job. Please either give her administrative powers, or give me bureaucratic powers so I can do it myself. It's been more than a year and this is the first time I've asked you. Her username on the wiki is Demiibabii4u. Thank you. PitchBlack696 05:04, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Hebrew Unciclopadia Edit

our community decided to remove sysop rights from another 2 sysops who have more then 100 contributes' but almost not active at all from 12\2006. here is link to the vote about them. the users are user:Ayalx and user:אחד העם. tanks again. {{SUBST:ס:משתמש:ינון/חתימה}} 16:28, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Davichito again asking... Edit

I want to know how I can promote Biology Wiki. I have expanded it but no one comes. Also some comments are welcome if you have the time, which I think not. Thanks for making me admin there. Davichito 03:01, 2 April 2008 (UTC).


Mistake needing fixing Edit

I'm Dark Overlord, creator of the new Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Wiki and I thought Kazi22 wanted to be an Admin but he actually thought I was recruiting admins for the BS01 wiki and I made him an admin by mistake so could you demote him to end this confusion. Dark Overlord 04:09, 2 April 2008 (UTC)


MarioKart wiki Edit

The MarioKart wiki's founder is inactive, and I wish to adopt it. I have been a user there for over three monthes. Thank you. MarioGalaxy2433g5{Metroid/Mario/Pokemon} {talk/contribs/Logs} 23:07, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Another QuestionEdit

Hi Angela, I was wondering, what are the requirements for becoming a Wikia Helper? Eu(Talk!Contribs) 13:45, 3 April 2008 (UTC)


Question on Category:Stub Edit

Hi. I want to know how I can put the Category:Stub on the left menu. I have put some categories with #category1, #category2, but I don't know the number of Stub category (I have put category numbers up to 20, and I don't see it). I also put it like [[Category:Stub|Stub but that way the menu does not expand, only the link is clickable.

So, how can I put Stub Category on the menu? Thanks in advance. Davichito 19:55, 3 April 2008 (UTC)


Re: Username Edit

Hi Angela, I have a question concerning changing usernames, more specifically, usurpation of a username. Is it possible on Wikia? Nat 22:13, 3 April 2008 (UTC)


Some requests for c:mtg Edit

Hi, I'm the adopter/main b-crat-person on the MTG wiki, and I was wondering if you or some other wikia staff-type could enable Semantic MediaWiki and DPL and add in two custom namespaces: "Gallery" and "Rulings". I would much appreciate it :) --Skizzerz talk 13:57, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Catherine took care of this when I saw here on IRC, so just letting you know that the issue has been fixed :) --Skizzerz talk 23:35, 5 April 2008 (UTC)


FantendoEdit

Most Fantendo's sysops have become inactive, so could you please demote:

  • HK-42
  • Pokemon DP
  • UnijuXP
  • Wayoshi
  • Xzelion

Thanks in advance. Plumber


Serius interwiki troubles Edit

Dear Angela,

I'm a bureaucrat of Wikination. Wikination is one of the Wikias belonging to "UWN" (the United Wiki Nations). We are all fictitious countries with governments, economy and much more. Other nations are on RoWikicity, Wikistad, Wikilandj or Wikicité. It might sound dumb, but there are serious problems between those nations. There have been heavy comments on the government in Wikination and after blocking to people from RoWikicity, the situation got worse. We are almost at war with each other. This is not we want, but the other members seem to be thinking other things. We are trying to step out of UWN, to prevent internet war. Is there a possibility to ensure our safety in another way, for a week or something? Are you empowered to "pauze" wikias for a period? If we could prevent everyone from editing for a short time, the situation could be restored more easily.

Please answer on my Wikia user talk page,

Dimitri N. WS/WN 13:30, 4 April 2008 (UTC)


No sysops on the fable wiki Edit

Hi Angela,

We have a slight problem on the Fable Wiki, in that we don't have any admins or members of staff. Or at least none show up on Special:Listusers/Sysops. Vitas claims to be the controller of the wiki, but I've never seen any administratorive actions by him. Another sign is that he doesn't know how to delete pages. This may be simply due to lack of wiki experience, or due to lack of adminstrator- umm -ness.

For administrator rights, I could reccomend either Kadajvince, Vitas, or myself. To make the final decision, I reccomend you simply look at our previous contributions.

Thanks in advance - Game LordTalk|Contribs 16:06, 5 April 2008 (UTC)


Forumadmin for Wikia Gaming Edit

Could you please assign some of the admins at Wikia Gaming (c:gaming) forumadmin status? I'm guessing give it to the bureaucrats for sure and then there will probably be some sort of discussion on giving it to others, so I'll keep you posted on that. Just a note that if you don't give it to at least one person, about 80% of the forum is locked out for everyone (including mods). --Skizzerz talk 23:37, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Who do I ask? Help with Templates? Edit

My question is here: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:Need_help_with_conditionals_and_tables but, I'm also wondering where would be a good place to ask for help on other template/coding related questions. I know of irc://irc.freenode.net/wikia but they don't always have an answer for me. Any other places I could see help from? Nicolasjager 06:01, 7 April 2008 (UTC)


Re: Username Edit

Hi Angela, Thank you for replying to my message. The problem is I don't know which Wikia that this account initially opened on. As well, there might be a possibility that it might be a completely inactive, no edits on record account as were the ones on Wikipedia, although that might not be the case. Nat 01:42, 8 April 2008 (UTC)


IRC cloak requests Edit

I'd like to request a cloak on Freenode. My nick on IRC is Lord_Oblivion. Thanks.--Darth Oblivion 20:06, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

I'd like to request a cloak for the Freenode network on Tomsen's recommendation. My nick in IRC is Wombi. Kind regards. Wombi™ 23:13, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Imagine wikiEdit

Hello, Angela. I am Mighty Erick. I had been working at ImagineWiki, but now I am moving to Constructed Mythology and I need to delete all my images on Imagine Wiki. I am deleting my articles with a script, but it does not work on images. Can you help me? Thanks!!! Mighty Erick{{SUBST:Erick}} 21:16, 3 April 2008 (UTC)


Greetings Angela,

Please take a look at Imagination. Something strange is happening.

Cheers, --Yunzhong Hou 00:30, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Hello mister Hou. I am moving my 700 files out of Imagination. No problem there. Mighty Erick{{SUBST:Erick}} 00:34, 4 April 2008 (UTC)


admin removal Edit

Please could you remove User:Kingcjc fromadminship form the Top Trumps wiki as he no longer wants to work there.Also do you know anyone that could replace me to be an admin on Madness Wiki.Thanks, Sgtcook 16:29, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

MangaWiki Edit

Could you change the domain from en.manga.wikia.com to manga.wikia.com? DragonBallZ 19:26, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! DragonBallZ 03:02, 9 April 2008 (UTC)


Adopting/importing Contract Bridge wiki Edit

Hi,

I've been working on a bridge wiki that I've hosted on my own computer for a while, and after much consideration have decided I'd like to try to move it over to Wikia's http://bridge.wikia.com. It is currently online at http://kupopo.yi.org/wiki and it uses one standard extension that Wikia doesn't have (CSS - I believe I can get around this by using a global stylesheet for the whole wiki, though), and two extensions I've written myself: ImgLink and FancyTable. I started moving content over by hand, but decided it would be a lot easier if it could be done automagically. There are a few details that would need changing to go public (i.e. the main page is not quite appropriate currently) but for the most part the information we've got is generally applicable and should be of broad interest to the bridge community. Please let me know what I can do.

Thanks! Kupopo 06:29, 11 April 2008 (UTC)


Done Edit

Hello! The translation is done!

I saw you have drasticaly modified the interface. The new interface is very cool but some interface elements are not translated (like "Community" or "Welcome back," or "Request a new wiki" or "Related Communities". I may translate them also if you want.

I also saw that you have created a picture based on my text "Creează-ţi propria" but the text in the picture is not "Crează-ţi propria Wikia" but "Creaz - i propria". Please correct this or let me correct this.

Have a nice day! -- PetruD mesaj 15:25, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Can you send me a corrected version based on the image at Translations/Create your own? Then I can add that to the relevant wikis. Angela@fandom (talk)

Deleting images on ImagineWiki Edit

Hello, Angela. I am Mighty Erick, again. It is only I need to delete about 500 images I created there (now I uploaded them into a new wiki). It will take too long. Is there a way to make it easier? Thanks.{{SUBST:Erick}} 15:48, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

If it doesn't need to be done urgently, it should be possible for a bot to do this. Do you have a list of the images that need deleting? Angela@fandom (talk)


Persistent Vandal Edit

Can you please do a checkuser on this vandal? He is a persistent vandal and it's really annoying, so can you please ban his IP address and such for an infinite amount of time for us at (English) Star Wars Fanon? Thank you very much. --Victor (talk) 00:22, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

I've blocked the open proxy that vandal was using. Angela@fandom (talk)

Thanks for blocking that proxy. However the vandal struck again, same one (I know because the vandal always moves the same pages) and so can you please do a checkuser again on this user? Thank you, it's much appreciated. --Victor (talk) 16:19, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

I've blocked that one too. Angela@fandom (talk) 17:36, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

A question Edit

What happens if every administrator retires a wiki? Who makes new ones? That's sort of the problem here... {{SUBST:User:C Teng/Signature}} 01:23, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Any one on the Community Team can create new admins. If a wiki doesn't have any active users to become admins, you can list the wiki for adoption by placing {{Wikia:WikiaAdoption}} on the home page. Angela@fandom (talk) 11:01, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

RSS on a Wikia wiki Edit

Is it possible to show RSS-feeds from a other site on a wikia wiki?

If it is possible, how do I use it? Is it possible that you show it on mij userpage? Thanks! --MenM 15:57, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it's possible. You just to type
Loading RSS data...
. See Help:RSS2Wiki or the example on my user page. Angela@fandom (talk) 11:01, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Contract bridge wiki followup Edit

Thanks for getting everything up and running! The old wiki didn't actually have any User or User talk: pages, so no worry there. And most of the templates need adjustments for the text-based suit icons so I can bring them in by hand. Thanks again! --Kupopo 22:25, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

BS01 GTEdit

Angela, could you please go to your talkpage there? Many of us, including me, have many questions on what Wikia can specifically do for us. Tahu Nuva Unleashed 00:03, 13 April 2008 (UTC)


List of images to be deleted on ImagineWiki Edit

Hello, Angela. The list of images to be removed from ImagineWiki is right there there. Thanks for your help. Mighty Erick{{SUBST:Erick}} 19:04, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

AutoCAD Wiki Edit

Hi, Angela. I don't know what you (Wikia) did to the AutoCAD Wiki, but it looks great. And I don't know how you keep your sanity at Wikia with all your user pages scattered about the Wikis, but I appreciate it all. I am increasingly bullish about Wikia as the home for the One True AutoCAD wiki. Only time will tell. Tom Haws 05:24, 14 April 2008 (UTC)


a new name spaces in the Hebrew Eincyclopedia Edit

Hello, Eincyclopedia decided to create new 3 name spaces:

  1. איןציטוט, with the logo: Einchitot.png
  2. איןמילון, with the logo: Einmeelon.png
  3. מדריך, with the logo: Handbook.png

can you create these name spaces please? thanks סוזה מן 19:05, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

JSharp is going to do this. Angela@fandom (talk)


Administrator Edit

Hello. I have started to take care of an abandoned wiki for the movie Sweeney Todd. The real admin haven't been there since December, and so I was wondering if it was possible for me to take the admin role? I read somewhere that I had to ask the Community Team, so I hope I have come to the right place. -Link- --Maxtine 11:21, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

I've let Danny know about this. He'll contact you soon. Angela@fandom (talk)


Madness Edit

I'll do that, thanks.Sgtcook 19:28, 19 April 2008 (UTC)


Earlier cloak request Edit

I had requested a cloak on the first of the month. It's nothing urgent, but I was just wondering what up with that? Is there any other info required on my part? Thanks.--Darth Oblivion 19:46, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

I think it has been done, but I can't check since your nick (Lord_Oblivion) is set to private. Can you check when you're next on IRC to see if it's working? Angela@fandom (talk) 21:12, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
I should see it when I whois myself, correct? Unfortunately, it hasn't changed.--75.68.134.170 05:13, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
I'll ask freenode again about this. Angela@fandom (talk) 19:57, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, it appears to be working now. Oops, didn't realize I'd forgotten to log in before.--Darth Oblivion 22:42, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

this is unfair Edit

i made a mistake and one of the admins blocked me for 1 year hes name is CY

If what's written on your talk page is correct, it seems Cyrus made a fair decision. Angela@fandom (talk)

Who's Online Edit

Greetings Angela,

When is the Who's Online special page going to be back online for Fiction wikia? I'm looking forward to using it.

--Yunzhong Hou15:40, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

I think it has something to do with the Who's Online function on the Shout Box being broken. MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 21:48, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
This has to be rewritten to be more scalable. I'll try to find out if there are plans for anyone to work on it. Angela@fandom (talk)
Good news - this is planned to happen next month. Angela@fandom (talk) 09:31, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Wiki Helpers Edit

Hi Angela!

I don't know if I'm supposed to be bugging you about this, but I have a few simple questions about wiki (Wikia?) helpers. First of all, do they volunteer from home? Can they choose what wikis that they work on? Where can I find out about becoming one?

I am interested about becoming a wiki helper, but I don't really want to if I can't do it from my own computer.

Thanks,

Jonathan "Asoue1286" Snicket

Leave Me a Message! / Email Me! / See My Contribs!


P.S. What are user boxes?

Wikia Helpers has more information on this. Often the people with this are interns. We advertise open positions on the hiring page and that will have details on whether or not the position can be done remotely - it usually can. User boxes are templates people add to their their user page that give some information about them, such as which sports team they support, etc. Angela@fandom (talk) 19:57, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
