Adopt a Wiki Page[]

Hey Angela,

I already notified Catherine about this but have not gotten any kind of response in several days so I decided you were the best person to come to. The adopt a wiki page is developing quite a backup and hasn't gotten any attention since the 11th of February. If you wouldn't mind reviewing it, that would be great! Regards, Gaelen S.Talk Contribs 04:01, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Catherine has edited that page today, so I'm sure she'll get to your request soon. Angela (talk) 10:59, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know and yes, she did get to it. I was following up here because I am interested in helping out across several wikis, this one included. If you have anything in particular that you feel could use an extra pair of hands here on the Community Wiki, I would be more than happy to help! - Regards, Gaelen S.Talk Contribs 09:02, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Checkuser[]

I see the checkuser current not is activ, i would like checkuser acces. Thanks.  Ervin [talk] 15:44, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

  • You've already been told about this. Checkuser rights typically aren't handed out to non-community team members. They're only given to wiki administrators and/or bureaucrats in extreme situations. If you feel there is an extreme case that warrants Checkuser rights for yourself, please send a request with your reasons for needing it to Special:Contact from the wiki in question. - Brandon Rhea (talk) 16:10, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

A problem[]

At Lostpedia a page has a problem. On this page:Ray (DHARMA_Initiative), he is accept as appearance in season 4. I have tried to remove it, but it didn't work. Later I was going to an Admin and he said that it was better if I was going to one of the supporters team. I hope you can fix the problem.--Station7 19:37, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure what they mean by supporters team - you could try asking them about that. You might be able to get some help if you leave a message at Talk:Character appearances as that's the talk page of the article which would need to change. Angela (talk) 23:08, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

favicon and skin[]

dear angela i need your help as i would ask you to put my favicon on my wiki Video Game History and tell me how i can put my own background skin on my wiki. please answer back. Jonathan Smith

I've replied on the Video Game History wiki. Angela (talk) 07:07, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Angela please change me to admin so I can change the logo on the boondocks wiki

Please see adoption - you can adopt the wiki to gain adminship there. Angela (talk) 22:41, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

DB Wiki in spanish[]

Hi Angela. Well first i don´t speak or write very well in english but i wish that you can understand me. Well i want to be bureaucrat in the Dragon Ball wiki in spanish but the bureaucrat leave the wiki and now í´m a sysop in this wiki but now i want to be bureaucrat in this wiki. i´m here because zuirdj is ausent. Thanks I wait for your answer--~Usuario:Danke7~@Danke@ ~Usuario Discusión:Danke7~@7@ 00:11, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

The best thing to do is ask on the adoption page. Angela (talk) 01:09, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Staffer[]

Hello! May I know how this user, with only 8 contributions part of helpers and staff, I with many contributions are no sysop and he 8 is already helper and Staffer: (At least the helper, that I am ashamed of myself already.'m admin on some bureaucrat in 7 projects and about 4. We have extensive experience. So if Staffer, even helper. Please to think a bit on this proposal. Many Thanks. Erwin(mesaje|contribuţii) 09:28, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Misterr - staff are employed by Wikia i.e. they are paid by Wikia, and are not necessarily present on this wiki, Community Central, every day. They may not even edit regularly, or at all. Their job is not necessarily involvement in the Wikia community. Helpers are volunteer interns who were either invited/recruited by Wikia or hired as an unpaid position. As you can see, both flags are not just handed out arbitrarily. Edits and whatever have nothing to do with it. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 10:01, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, but I I could handle adoption requests, Catherine is not active for 5 days, this is a task I did not need money to help the community. Staffer If I would be more interested in the post than the other wikis. Erwin(mesaje|contribuţii) 10:15, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
While Catherine does not edit every day, there isn't that big of a backlog in Adoption as far as I know - a week is nothing in inactivity terms. You can't just apply for a staff or helper position like this. My advice to you is to quiet down and keep editing - shouldn't you be busy enough being admin of that many wikis? Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 10:26, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
Catherine not oblige to deal every day, but I think I would handle myself in her place when busy, and even so, test if you do not let me take you to the post, but even test. Thanks, Erwin(mesaje|contribuţii) 10:47, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

No, Wikia doesn't give out "tests" of staff and help flags. With the staff flag, they give out powers that can be very dangerous, such as the ability to check user and oversight (delete revisions from history). I reiterate: just keep editing quietly. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 10:55, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

I'm sysop, bureaucrat and Checkuser here and

here: . There administrators oversight skills. But I still I will not use. Only user permissions, Checkuser, deleting vandalism etc. Erwin(mesaje|contribuţii) 11:10, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Experience from the outside is irrelevant to the Wikia situation. No staff member would feel comfortable with just another community member having access to potentially dangerous tools, including Check user. I've emphasised again and again that Wikia does not appear to need help with Adoption, which is their job, not the community's. The community here also believes that we don't need some admin just to deal with vandalism. You don't need this. Your continued determination to grab any user rights is unjustified, so please, just desist and spend your time more productively. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 11:21, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
Wjxhuang is right (except that the helper flag is sometimes used for staff or paid contractors as well as for volunteers). Hiring is the place to look for jobs at Wikia. Angela (talk) 18:00, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
I do not want money but to help the community. That's my wish, I do not care about money in a hobby like this, it is a pleasure. Erwin(mesaje|contribuţii) 18:12, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
You're very welcome to help, but please do try to find some areas that don't require special rights which are only given to staff. Some examples of where you can help are:
Angela (talk) 18:45, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
No with UserRights? Sorry. With make logos? I have the permition? Erwin(mesaje|contribuţii) 18:51, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Monaco-sidebar[]

Hi Angela! How are you? I ask: How put text color to the main menu of Monaco-sidebar. Because with <span> logically I can't. Happy editing!. Andres bonilla 196 17:36, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

You would need to edit MediaWiki:Monaco.css to change that. If you need any help, please check out Help:Customizing Monaco or ask for help using Special:Contact. Angela (talk) 17:54, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

Hi[]

Hi! How can I hide some edits in my wiki?? Is changing user names available? Greetings, Matvilho 13:59, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

If you're an admin, you can delete a page to remove edits. You can also undelete just certain revisions if you want to keep part of the page. Changing username is not available, but you can instead just create a new user name and redirect your old user page to that one. Angela (talk) 20:02, March 7, 2010 (UTC)

Remove me the bot flag[]

Hi Angela! I need that remove me the bot flag on this wiki (w:c:dialgapoke). Regards. Andres bonilla 196 15:01, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

I've removed that. Angela (talk) 20:01, March 7, 2010 (UTC)

My Wiki?[]

Hello, Angela!! I'm Wii maniac from MySims wiki. I issued 4 times for a new wiki but I don't think it worked. All it showed was "Create a Wiki" in bold letters and a picture of a non-filled-out wiki page. Did I do it right?

And I changed it from "HotShotGolf" and "WarioWare" to "Kororinpa" wiki. I found out there is already a Hot Shot Golf and WarioWare wiki.

It looks like you don't have any wikis yet under this username. Please try again at w:special:createwiki. If it doesn't work, please can you send details to special:contact? Angela (talk) 17:42, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

Hello[]

How often do you guys check Community Central:Adoption requests‎‎?-- 22:11, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure what the usual schedule is, but it could be a bit less this week as staff are attending a meeting in San Francisco. Please be patient and check back next week. There's lot you can do to improve a wiki without admin access while you're waiting, especially adding content and promoting the wiki. Angela (talk) 22:27, March 8, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah I have been doing that but Pages need deleted and I have an ichy finger for making a custom skin. You guys have meetings!? Whats it take to work at Wikia HQ? Tell everyone I said have a awsome Staff meeting becuse im a little jealous. Have a good day ma'am ^_^-- 22:41, March 8, 2010 (UTC)
What sort of pages need deleted? If there are no other active admins I can take a look for you while you wait out the adoption request queue. As for working at Wikia, you'd need to see this page. --User? 23:46, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

Redirect[]

Hi Angela, I guess you saw Avatar :) Apparently, the sequel won't be called Avatar 2, as Jake isn't an Avatar anymore, as confirmed by James Cameron... So we're trying to get all the URLs we can in case the name is changed, like http://navi.wikia.com and http://pandora.wikia.com that both have other bigger wikis. If it is possible, can you delete both and redirect them to http://james-camerons-avatar.wikia.com please? Both wikis are inactive, btw. Thanks!

PD: I sent this message to Catherine before, but apparently she's out, and I've wait like 1 week for her answer, so I come to you... --Shadow Na'vi ~ Talk 22:29, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

The best way to make sure you get a reply is to use Special:Contact instead of talk pages. I recommend you send this suggestion there as I'm not sure whether that is usually done for wikis that do have content or were only recently created. Angela (talk) 23:42, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

Sysop Priviliges on the Battlefield Wikia[]

There's been some vandalism and there's no really active admins around there.

I'm an experienced editor, and I'd love to help out.

Do you think you could grant me sysop there?

There seems to be an an active bureaucrat there, which makes it ineligible for adoption. You can ask Bondpedia about how to get admin rights there. --User? 21:19, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

Please warn all other team members about him. Remember that I administrate three wikis! I am rebuilding all of them, for the good of the community.

Drago99 00:32, March 22, 2010 (UTC)

You may want to take a look at this page, for tips on increasing your hits in google. To make someone an admin, just visit Special:UserRights on the wiki. You can get there easily by clicking "User rights management" on the top of the contributions page of the person you want to promote. --User? 00:36, March 22, 2010 (UTC)

May I ask, Angela, the exact terms of Wikia's policies involving this issue?

One day, I wrote a poem on Wikipedia; I was bored, a bit tired of all the editing. However, I actually found out that it was pretty good, and maybe even worthy of submission to a poetry contest my English teacher was talking about. But, I don't know. If I already saved it to Wikipedia, even if it's on my user page, will it be a violation if I submit it as my own work to an official contest or something? Please...I just want to make sure...I mean, the contest isn't all that important, but... And, also, please, if you write something on a Wikia talk page that's your original work, can you submit it as your own? Thank you so much if you can respond! Pumasari 00:38, March 27, 2010 (UTC)

Crazy12345 wiki[]

Hi, Angela....again! You've heard of MySims wiki, right?

Well, for a long time (possibly since the near-end of 2009), this guy named Ray has been doing very dirty and horrible things to the wiki non-stop (Even with bans, he kept coming back). Just recently, he created a wiki all about him. Like he is "famous" or something. It really pisses me off!!!! I don't really want to debate about it. I just hate him so much (as well as everyone at MySims Wiki). Can you suggest something?


By the way, I haven't told anyone on MySims Wiki, nor have I told Ray, I was letting you in on this.......

If he's doing something on a separate wiki, it may be best to just ignore him and not visit that wiki. If he's doing something wrong on the MySims wiki, it's likely that the admins on that wiki would be able to deal with that. If not, you can contact staff for advice.

hey, im just curious about wikis in general. with sysop tools, if u delete a pg, on a wiki, say, a trash-talk pg made about another user, can it still appear when u, for example, search google for it? just asking, ms. angela... Mysticmanta889 01:53, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Once Google updates its index the page will disappear from their listing. Only admins can see deleted pages. Angela (talk) 05:03, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

wait, ms angela, so this means, like, if u delete an abusive flame pg, no 1 else can even search for it on google, rite? it just goes away from their search results? cuz u wouldnt believe how abusive some users can be, ms...just asking, ms. angela... Mysticmanta889 15:54, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

couldnt take *.JPG as *.jpg. They are different files in a wiki.

Contribution Help[]

  • Hey, hey. You might not remember me but I am Destiny! over at Heroes Wiki. I think it was you who promoted me to becoming an admin. I have been trying hard to make the wiki a better place to edit than before and things are slowly getting a bit better. On the other hand, I know that there is another Heroes Wiki (an issue that has been brought up at the wiki) that is popular. Has this got something to do with the little number of edits our wiki gets each day? Do you have any advice for me on how to get more users to be more active and to edit the wiki and contribute? Or anything else that is helpful? Thanks! {{SUBST:User:Destiny!/autosig}} 09:25, April 3, 2010 (UTC)
Promotion has some advice on promoting your wiki. Another way you can make it more popular is to make sure it appears high in Google's search results pages. You can find advice on doing that at Advice:Raising your wiki's Google ranking. I see that w:c:heroes.answers was recently made and hasn't been edited yet. This can be a good way of adding extra content about a topic and can accompany the existing Heroes Wikia without competing with it as the questions on there can be shown in the answers widget on the main Heroes Wikia.

Blocked from editing a Wikia that I've never edited[]

Hi Angela,

I've been nosing about some Wikia.com subdomains the last few days. I see that I'm blocked for a year on list.wikia.com; my block log, my contribs, there.

It's important to note that every one of those edits was actually made to WMF's English Wikipedia and were later transwiki'd to here, and that I've never made an edit directly to list.wikia.com. Yet I'm blocked for a year with account creation, email and talk page disabled, too. The reason given in the block log is:

  • sock account of indefinitely blocked user from Wikipedia who long term harassed others on and off wiki for years.

Now it is true that I'm a sock account on English Wikipedia and that my original account there is still indefed, but I've been through two rounds of en:ArbCom motions unbanning me. Details available at:

I've been unbanned on en:wp for more than sixteen months now. My en:wp history does not include any allegation of off-wiki harassment, which is a criminal offense in many contexts.

I don't know if any involvement in Wikia is in my future, but this treatment is not encouraging (or limited to me).

I would also like to know if I'm blocked on any of Wikia's other subdomains. There are likely tools to check this, but I've no idea where they might be.

Cheers (sorta;),

We don't have a tool to show which wikis you're blocked on. It looks like this is an issue you'd need to resolve with the admin that blocked you on list.wikia.com. Angela (talk) 22:39, April 13, 2010 (UTC)
Hi, I can't post to his talk page, can't post some sort of unblock request on my talk page, and I can't email him (at least on that wikia). Frankly, I feel you have a rogue admin on your hands. He blocked a bunch of other en:wp editors whom he doesn't like, too, none of whom seem to have edited on the Wikia, either. I was preemptively blocked from a site I've never edited, with no recourse available. I didn't even get a note on my talk page.
The list:Wikia admin in question, User:A Nobody, is currently indef'd on en:wp pending a response to the en:ArbCom and has been unwilling to discuss anyone's concerns about his editing for years.
I will drop him a note on this wikia, next, and see how that goes.
Cheers, Jack Merridew 22:53, April 13, 2010 (UTC)

Angela, it may be instructive to see just how many en:wp IDs this user has blocked... I've never edited there and I got blocked too. I bet most of the other people in that block log ( http://list.wikia.com/wiki/Special:BlockList ) would be surprised to see the blocks, as they have not edited there either, I'd expect. It may not matter much in the grand scheme of things but that admin seems seriously awry to me. Blocked on en:wp and taking it out on randoms. I think this would be my first block at any wiki ever. ++Lar: t/c 23:25, April 13, 2010 (UTC)

I'd like to keep this discussion in one place, rather than spread if via email, Angela, me, and various other places. Jack, I'm about to catch up on mail so can reply to your mail. Lar, perhaps it would be easiest for me to send you a copy of that mail? -- sannse (talk) 00:19, April 14, 2010 (UTC)

Spongebob Fanon Wiki User Rights[]

Hi Angela, I just wanted to come by to inform you that there are no active bureaucrats on Spongebob Fanon Wiki. They won't respond to people messages so they're inactive. I believe that SpongeWriter123 needs help with work on the wiki and I knew he couldn't handle it alone. I can barely handle mine and mine have no users!

I am Aku ankka, the byreaucrat of Finnish RuneScape wiki. The user 885c (or xzyn or someone i dont remember his name) is been broke the CC-BY-SA license. He copied our RuneScape article to him our wikia, . + A finnish starwars wiki sysops and byreaucrats been said him that he broke license, but he said idont care and block them. + he been copied some things to runescape wikia's byreaucrat's userpage.

It might be best to just ignore him for a while if he is playing blocking games. Is there a template like this which could be used to say the content comes from another wiki? If so, I can add that to any pages that have been copied if you like. Angela (talk) 22:36, April 18, 2010 (UTC)

HELP[]

On Fantendo, I recently banned a troll calling herself "Sally Yoshiseries". Shortly afterward, users began complaining that they themselves had been banned from editing and creating articles, because their IP had been used by Sally Yoshiseries. This has happened to four users so far, and counting. I believe Sally may have the ability to change her IP, and she's changing it to match these users' IPs. One of those users also began acting like Sally shortly before his account was banned. How do I get rid of her entirely? Cobweb (Talk) I really need help here.

According to checkuser, Sally Yoshiseries has only used one IP and no other users have used that IP. Do you know which users say they got this message? Angela (talk) 01:50, April 26, 2010 (UTC)

SITENAME Change[]

Can you change the following wikis SITENAME?, cause they are in English and we want to translate them into Arabic:

--Achraf94 14:59, April 30, 2010 (UTC)

You need to speak to the communities on those wikis first about whether they want to change name. If they agree, please send a link to the discussion to staff using special:contact. Angela (talk) 22:06, April 30, 2010 (UTC)
I will talk to the community of Arabic Lostpedia, but since I am the only one on "Arabic Wiki" and the founder of "Stargate Wiki", I would like to change those two.--Achraf94 18:26, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
Do you want to change the sitename and project namespace or only the sitename? Usually these 2 are the same. Before changing it, you must remove any pages that start with the new name. eg a page called ستارغيت ويكي:Something will disappear once the change is made. You should move it project:Something with no redirect and then wrote to special:contact to ask for this to be done. Angela (talk) 23:55, May 3, 2010 (UTC)
I have wrote to special:contact to ask for changing it including the project page namespace because that is the main reason for changing the sitename. --Achraf94 15:50, May 7, 2010 (UTC)

No is the answer you a probaly saying because that is copy writing, but what about if i give credit to the website like say go to this website and see more videos and type in the websites address of the site. Can i do that? From $A$UKE

You can't upload a video to Wikia, but you can embed videos from certain sites that allow this. See Help:Video embed tool. Angela (talk) 23:55, May 3, 2010 (UTC)

New Hub/Portal Pages[]

Hi Angela looking at the New style Hub/Portal front pages like here with headings Entertainment Gaming Lifestyle Community above the slideshow box, with recent activity info below I notice that when you look at the drop down lists and click the 'more' at the bottom of the menus it just loops back. I would expect it to take me to the category Hub pages with a bigger listing (more) of wikis under that Grouping i.e to this page Here ?

Unless you go to the Community forum with the old side bar & use the Hubs > More hubs menu you do not seem to get to a lot of the wikis. ?

Also perhaps the new wikia.com main page needs another dropdown menu to link to the smaller grouping of wikis via the hubs ? If I cannot get to them easily then how are new visitors to wikia.com main page to find a lot of the smaller wiki grouping and the individual wikis ? - BulldozerD11 01:10, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

I think that the best way to find the smaller wikis is to use the search box there which searches across all wikis. Those hub pages are more for people who want a broad overview of what communities there are rather than community members who want to find the smaller or newer wikis. Hopefully those more involved people will find this Community Central wiki with its editable hubs, such as hub:sports. Angela (talk | help forum) 01:21, June 26, 2010 (UTC)
Yes search works some of the time but often turns up the bigger wikis. So how about adding the Category:Hubs as a link on the tabs of the Wikia.com page and the Entertainment, Lifestyle etc versions on to the Community tab, something like "find 1000's of wiki communities" (or some other catch phrase) as a way into the hubs for new visitors. The hubs look better after the make over with a new header, and I thought there was an idea to revamp them a bit back, so pointing more users to the hubs and the more niche wikis ? I just think that the hubs are becoming a bit of a back water as few people appear to be able to find them unless they know they exist. - BulldozerD11 20:11, June 26, 2010 (UTC)
I suggest that you send this idea using special:contact so that it can reach the right person. Angela (talk | help forum)

I'm blocked on the WoW Wiki only for making articles. OK, I understand that I did it wrong, but here's the problem: I need Pcj for a template on the Prison Break Wiki. Our could I put a link on my Wiki with his name!--Station7 14:03, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

Angela, I'll address this. --Pcj (TC) 14:22, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

Kirby Wiki[]

Excuse me Angela, my name is Gamefreak75 and I'm an administrator on the Kirby Wiki. There was recently vandal who is not only impersonating me (Gamefreak76), but also spamming pages. It would be a big favor if you can check user that vandal's I.P. and see if it matches with anyone else on the wiki. Greatly appreciate it. --Gamefreak75

No one else uses Gamefreak76's IP on the Kirby wiki. There is a user with the same IP but a slightly different browser string on the Donkey Kong wiki but it's the IP of a large ISP so it could be shared between multiple users that are not sockpuppets. Angela (talk | help forum) 13:20, July 3, 2010 (UTC)
Hm, okay thanks, just wanted to see if it was one of the younger users making fun of me. --Gamefreak75

Question[]

Hello. I'm Agent WindFire, and I've recently founded the 39 Clues Roleplay wiki. I wanted to know what the terms are for sysops, so I can begin running the wiki a little more smoothly.

Thanks,

-- Agent WindFire 21:42, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

There aren't really terms, but you can find help in the Admin FAQ. Angela (talk | help forum)

Thank you! -- Agent WindFire 02:14, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

Can you help me?[]

I have issues with one editor on Red Dead Wiki who constantly makes unnecessary changes to the articles there. I want to take back all of my contributions so he can't manipulate the data. Is there a way to automatically strip a wiki of a user's changes? Most specifically, I'd like to remove permanently all of the pictures I've uploaded to it, but I can't find how to do that. Can you help me? By either telling me how or telling me I can't do it... JackFrost23 05:27, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

All contributions to Red Dead Wiki are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA (see Wikia:Copyrights for details). So you can't remove your edits; they are freely editible as soon as you click Save page. Manyman (Talk) 05:39, July 10, 2010 (UTC)
Have you tried talking to the user, or maybe to the admins on that wiki? Hopefully you can resolve it by talking about the changes you're not happy with. Another option is to post to your blog instead since that can not be edited by others. Angela (talk | help forum) 09:38, July 10, 2010 (UTC)
The user's a stubborn retard who's only interested in keeping his #1 status at the wiki. One admin quit because of family issues, and the other is never there - and even when he is, he usually just does robot edits. I can't post game information on my blog...
There are 7 admins and 6 of them have been active within the past month. If you can't find someone there to talk to, you could send details to staff using special:contact. Angela (talk | help forum) 05:31, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

Repeated vandalism to a user page that no administrator deals with[]

Someone created a user page without the consent of the user AsukaMomoko and should be deleted.[2] However, the administrator does not delete this user page and instead allow various puppets to recover these content. This user page should be deleted immediately without delay.67.212.81.105 15:33, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

It has been deleted, but if it recreated by admin, you will need to talk to one of the admins about it, or send a message to staff using special:contact. You can also try contacting Zeyi for help with this wiki. Angela (talk | help forum) 05:31, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

Uhhh[]

Um, Hi, I'm the creator of Zain Game Productions Wiki and I was going to ask, can I become an administrator of my own wiki? Please inform me on Zain Game Productions Wiki's Mayor Zain!


Thank you,

When you create a wiki, you are automatically an admin at that wiki. See help:user access levels and the admin FAQ for help. Angela (talk | help forum) 05:52, July 15, 2010 (UTC)

Rename domain name[]

Hi, I'm Silver Hawx, administrator on LPW eWrestling Encyclopedia, and I was wondering if I am able to rename my Wiki's domain name? See, LPW Wiki would like to include pages from another eFederation, and we don't want to lose all our information. Is there a way? Silver Hawx 07:48, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

I've found that you can, but do you have the power to? If so, I'll contact you over the next few days to do it. If not, can you tell me someone who can? Silver Hawx 07:57, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, this is possible. You just need to send the details to staff using special:contact. Angela (talk | help forum) 12:51, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Old SmashWiki URL[]

The rights to the domain name for one of the pre-merge Super Smash Bros wikis has expired. Originally, this was held by SmashBoards, who are now owned by Major League Gaming. At SmashWiki, are discussing what to do about this. One of the users said that part of wikia's contract required them to keep up the old URL for Guild Wiki. I was curious if this applied here and how we should go about fixing this. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 23:47, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

I didn't make the contract for that one, so I don't know exactly what they were required to do. Would you mind sending me an email about it with the link that you're referring to? Thanks, Angela (talk | help forum) 04:05, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Hey[]

Hello, Angela. I am sorry to disturb you again, but I do not know whom else to turn to, or what else to now do. A user on the wiki I created, ttff.wikia.com, by the name of Watchamacalit, has secretly changed the block settings of a disruptive user without explanation, whom many have complained about. The disruptive user was banned after many warnings, and after I consulted the entire community over it. He and other users wanted to call this banned user over to their own wiki, leaving messages for him on mine, and on that wiki, they plagarized the articles and characters of several other editors on the wiki I created. I tried to contact him here and ask him to delete the characters and instead use his own original work instead on his wiki; without comment, he banned me for one year and deleted my message, while refusing to remove any of the other user's content. I do not know what to do; this user has argued with me many times in the past, and has actually asked to be banned because of his actions, but I have always tried and managed to resolve arguments with him, giving him chance after chance and insisting he was an excellent contributor to our wiki and its community. Now, however, I have at last grown tired of this, and I truly do not know what I can do. Ralnon (talk) 04:21, July 22, 2010 (UTC)

To tell the truth, I banned this user long ago, but then I chose to give him a second chance. Because I thought with a new chance, he might serve the wiki well, alongside me, I personally granted him administrator and bureaucrat tools, shortly after creating the wiki, for no other reason than really thinking that perhaps I was too harsh, and that everyone deserves a second chance. I even made him the Featured Editor, and tried my best to calm him and to discuss all matters civilly. Now, though, I truly believe my choice to give him such abilities was too hasty, and that this user, after multiple transgressions, no longer deserves such tools. I have since removed his administrator tools, but he simply uses his bureaucrat powers to restore them, many times, as he feels fit. Now, with his inactivity on the TTFF Wiki, for favor of another wiki, along with past poor interactions with various members of the community (which I then overlooked on account of my thinking that nothing like this would happen again in the future), my own personal belief that such tools in his hands can benefit the community and the wiki very little, I ask only that his bureaucrat powers are removed, so that plagiarism of others' work can stop. I have already tried negotiating, and I was banned swiftly afterwards without comment; I no longer care whether I am banned on his wiki for one year or ten, only that future copying of the community's work will be stopped. Thank you very much for your time, Angela, Ralnon (talk) 06:56, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
I'm here to support the post of Ralnon above. When I joined the Teen Titans Fan Fiction Wiki, I did my part to contribute, and though Ralnon has made changes to the wiki in attempts to improve it, certain members opposed to such alterations and more than once I've witnessed petty squabbles among the community. However, at this point, I feel it has gone to an extent in which he has gone too far. Watchamacalit's sheer abuse of his power has resulted in the robbery of intellectual property placed upon the wiki. Using his admin powers, he obtained the copies of old, deleted pages, without permission of the author as far as we're aware, and posted them on his wiki. Now normally I'd desire a civilized conversation to put an end to such meager disputes, but right now a different course of action must be taken to prevent continued vandalism through the use of administrative rights. Now I don't understand what a bureaucrat is on the Wikis, but from what I've seen, it seems that banning him ourselves is quite futile. Hence why we come here. Either we wish advisory on a proper course of action to take, or if there is nothing, we need you to take such actions for us.
--Spades Neil 17:29, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
He is no longer a bureaucrat. If there are any more issues with this, please could you send the details to staff using special:contact. Angela (talk | help forum) 01:58, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

Starting a shared help wiki[]

Hi Angela, I'd like to start a shared help wiki. Since it is meant to be used as shared help, I'm uncertain whether I should just go ahead and create a normal wiki like any other. And I have a few detailed questions. Would you be the right person to ask, or should I just place them in the community forums? Many thanks. 019mgq 12:20, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

What do you mean by shared help? There is already a help wiki in many different languages. Angela (talk | help forum) 01:31, July 24, 2010 (UTC)
One year ago, you created the pt-br help wiki. I would like to start one for language pt, with name "pt.ajuda" (URL: pt.ajuda.wikia.com) and title "Wikia Ajuda". Now:
  1. Since it is dedicated to shared help, and will be shared by all pt wikias in the future, should I just go ahead and create it myself, like any other wiki, or would you rather do it yourself, to take care of any special pointers that I am not aware of?
  2. To be used as shared help, do the help pages need to go to a particular namespace? For example, should they go into the Help ("Ajuda") namespace itself or to the Project ("Wikia Ajuda") namespace, so that they are considered content pages? Does this affect how you enable the shared feature later on? I ask you this, because in the pt-br help they are not considered content, but in the en help they are. Am I missing something big here, or is there nothing to this?
  3. What about the Draft ("Rascunho") and Advice ("Conselho") namespaces? Do I need to request their creation and there's a maximum of three, or can you create those straightaway? Are there any more namespaces that will be needed, besides these two?
  4. Page w:c:help:Help:Index uses tag <dpl> to create the index. This tag doesn't work in the corresponding w:c:ajuda:Ajuda:Índice page. What do I have to do, to get it to work on the new pt help wiki? Is there some extension that needs to be installed?
  5. Do you know which languages already have a shared help wiki and can you list them, so that I can request the full interwiki map in one go?
  6. Finally, I am asking all of these detailed questions in order to avoid that, after translating 100 pages of help, the shared help feature can´t be enabled because of some basic error I made somewhere. Are there any pointers, any advice, any things to avoid doing now, because they will later affect/break the shared help feature?
Many thanks. 019mgq 03:30, July 24, 2010 (UTC)
The wiki at ajuda is designed to be used for both pt and pt-br wikis once it is ready. The pages need to be in the Ajuda namespace. Wikia Help lists some help wikis, but not all of them are ready to be used yet. I don't think you need the draft and advice namespaces since these don't do anything anyway - they won't show up on other wikis which makes linking to them harder. To get DPL or other extensions turned on, please send a request to special:contact. Angela (talk | help forum) 03:37, July 24, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your answers, Angela. A couple of points:
  • Some advice pages are currently linked to from the main contents pages (e.g. 5 of the links in Successful wiki tips, such as Assuming good faith). Users navigating the shared help who click those links, leave their wiki and are taken to the help wiki, which is weird; maybe the advice namespace should all be moved to the help namespace. In the pt help wiki, I'll put those in the ajuda namespace, then.
  • Using the ajuda wiki for both pt and pt-br raises all sorts of issues that I would love to avoid. We can go into details, but I'd 100% prefer having separate ones and interwiki linking them: then, each user can choose to read whichever language they prefer. Each user is allowed to read help in their own version of the language, rather than having a different version forced upon them. We currently also have separate pt and pt-br central wikias, so it is a natural extension of that. And now that I have your answers, I believe I can just go ahead and create it myself. Would this be at all acceptable to you? 019mgq 17:02, July 24, 2010 (UTC)
You're welcome to start this wiki in the normal way using special:createwiki. It's important to get some other contributors involved as well, which is why it may be easier to work on a joint pt/pt-br help site, but if you think it's problematic, then you can try for a pt-only version. It won't be enabled as shared help until it has a good amount of content and preferably more than one person involved in checking and editing that content. I recommedn you put everything into the help namespace and not use additional namespaces such as advice. Angela (talk | help forum) 05:38, July 25, 2010 (UTC)
Angela, apologies for bothering you again. I can't create what I had in mind. The reason is this:
So, it's a pt-br wiki, it's interface language defaults to pt-br, it's interwiki mapped for language pt-br but it's in a pt URL. It's existence there seems to prevent me from creating http://pt.ajuda.wikia.com for the pt help. Can you help, or do I need to go explain all of this again to someone else? 019mgq 07:43, July 25, 2010 (UTC)
It now exists at http://pt.ajuda.wikia.com/. Angela (talk | help forum) 23:36, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

The guy who usually does adoption request is on vacation until the 29th. Can you handle this please?[]

  • [3] I was told to wait until July 25th, then I'd become bureaucrat and administrator of that wiki. I created all of the content on it. It just one of several stubs someone made last year and then abandoned. Dream Focus 19:18, July 25, 2010 (UTC)
I suggest you write to special:contact if it's urgent. Angela (talk | help forum) 23:37, July 25, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, sorry. I saw you posting on that page and approving someone else. I thought if the other guy wasn't around, someone else would take his place and make his rounds. Do only paid staff members have the authority to do this, or can you appoint others to help with your case load? I answered a lot of questions of people there, simply by visiting the wiki and checking the user list, and pointing out which request were valid and which ones were not. Seems like an easy enough job. I could help if you wanted me too. Dream Focus 02:05, July 26, 2010 (UTC)
I don't usually do it - I just did it recently for one I was asked to look into. I expect that sannse would be the best person to talk to about this - again going via special:contact is the best way. Angela (talk | help forum) 06:31, July 26, 2010 (UTC)
Alright. I thought emailing them without something absolutely urgent would be considered pestering. Went ahead and did so last night since you suggested it. One more question though. User Jeffwang16 is declining adoption request, but the "list user" page doesn't show him as part of any group. I assume only staff members have the right to do this, not just some random passerby. [4] Dream Focus 16:31, July 26, 2010 (UTC)
