== Problems with Wikia ==

I seem to be having some problems connecting to any Wikia-related site in general, and I think it may be because of the Monaco skin, and FireFox not getting along with each other. I currently have FireFox 2.0 (I'm not fond of 3.0), and randomly, when I try to connect to a Wikia, or edit a page, I get this: http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/6250/problemt.png . It's an image of my FireFox screen. The tab with the Wikia name shows the address, and the page claims to be done loading, yet all I see is a white screen. I also had some image related problems with the Monaco skin, where the images would not load, but instead, turn into blue links. I'm not sure if Monaco has some bugs left in it, or if it's just FireFox screwing up, but do you know anything about this? And if you don't, who should I go talk to regarding wikia tech support? <small><sub>[[User_talk:Daedryon|<font color="#444444">Prince of Madness</font>]]</sub><sup><span style="position: relative; left:-60px; margin-right:-0px;">[[User:Daedryon|<b><font color="#222222">Daedryon</font></b>]]</span></sup></small> 03:10, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Tamora Pierce Wiki

The Tamora Pierce Wiki seems to be relatively abandoned, as only a couple of edits have been made since last year, excluding my own. The sole Sysop is likewise dormant. How can I gain administrator privileges to continue fixing up the wiki? --Matt Rubin 17:45, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks :)

Hey Manti, thanks for supporting my recent RfA (it was successful). I'm glad to know you trust me, and I'll do my best to continue helping Central with my +sysop flag. Pinky Talk 22:42, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Serial killer

Thanks for reminding me about the serialkiller issue; after reviewing it with others, we've decided to close the wiki completely. Thanks for your help! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 14:42, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

weird spoiler

there's a user that's make problem so we blocked him, but he still do problem as ip and as alot of user that he create, we dont know what to do with him beacuse every time we block him he back, this is his ip. {{SUBST:ס:משתמש:אובונטו מן/חתימה אוטומטית}} 08:40, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Help! (User talk:Angela)

I would also like to ask you for help. We have a terrible issue:

Wikistad

Dear Angela. On stad.wikia User:DimiTalen is a bureaucrat and sysop. He has said a few times he would leave the wiki forever but keeps returning to put a bad atmosphere there. We can't block him because he's a sysop (he can unblock himself) Could he please be desysoped and debureaucrated? --OWTB 14:46, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

As soon as possible. He affects the whole wiki and we can't work anymore like this on our wiki. {{SUBST:User:Bucurestean/HT2}} 15:09, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
Indeed, he keeps affecting the whole wiki. The way he acts on Stad.wiki isn't the way you should act in a community like wikistad or an other wiki. --{{SUBST:User:MenM/HT2}} 16:41, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
Please, it's getting serious! :-( {{SUBST:User:Bucurestean/HT2}} 19:51, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
We already had to block him for 3 days, but he can unblock himself, so we kind of need your help. {{SUBST:User:Bucurestean/HT2}} 13:28, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
Do you see? And they don't stop deleting pages. I'm getting worried. Now User:Ooswesthoesbes is also doing strange. {{SUBST:User:Bucurestean/HT2}} 14:49, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

I have answered myself on Angela's talk page and I would appreciate it if this issues was being discussed on one sole page. Thanks, Dimitri N. WS/WN 17:54, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Please User talk:Sannse#Wikistad for a reply. Thanks -- sannse@fandom (talk) 16:22, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

How do I adopt the CAW Wikia?

I read the message to adopt CAW Wikia, and I am interested. How does the process go? XtremeTony 21:38, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm still trying to figure it out. How can we speed up the process? Thanks XtremeTony 17:22, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Please leave requests for adopting a wiki at Wiki adoption requests. Many other people also review these requests, and it serves as a common place for them. --Uberfuzzy 20:29, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Uberfuzzy. I appreciate it alot. XtremeTony 20:31, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Rollback abuse

Mind explaining yourself, Manticore? Your abuse of privileges and access on IRC is intolerable, it follows you on wikia too? --CharitwoTalk 10:32, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

The irony is almost too much to bear. If the factual accuracy of GHe's userpage bothers you, I recommend you leave him a message rather than rudely change what is a rather intentional statement. -- Manticore (talk) 11:04, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Hardly, referencing Wikipedia policy, or at least how different admins interpret it, in regards to Wikia is beyond comparison. Also, I'm pretty sure GHe was not aware of Greyman's situation, especially seeing how his notice was made before Greymans. Userpages belong to the community regardless, like everything else. You're the one rolling back good faith edits, that is my issue. --User? 11:35, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Genealogy Wikia wants a bot

w:c:Genealogy could use MantiBot for some mundane tasks while PhloxBot and its master are on extended leave. One of the straightforward jobs would be to correct the subcategories and articles that are now in redirected categories; is that an easy one? For the next big one I have thought of and floated to the community, please see w:c:genealogy:Template talk:Navbox county1-en and tell me what you think. Robin Patterson 16:59, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi Robin, I'll have to wait until the weekend to take a look at this; my planned week is hectic. -- Manticore (talk) 08:41, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Re:Userpage spam

I'm sorry, Manticore, I didn't know that was against the rules. I'll remove them ASAP.--Eu(Talk!Contribs) 15:34, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Abandoned?

You seem to have been the one that flagged Metro Wiki for adoption. I haven't really abandoned it; I've simply decided that the Broadcasting Wiki needs a lot more work at present, and most of my Wikia time is spent on that one. I still want Metro Wiki, though! -- BruceG 13:16, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Bot Construction Request

Manticore, I'm trying to construct a bot for The Third Turn and I must admit, as a very weak software developer, I'm quite no go at it. Perhaps you could help? I'm looking to create a script that automatically creates pages based off data I enter using a Semantic template. If you could contact back either way, that'd be appreciated. DaNASCAT 19:54, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

No idea how you would go about doing that. Trying asking in the Forums. -- Manticore (talk) 13:10, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, I think I worded that poorly. I'm just inquiring if it's possible for a bot to automatically submit pages that templates link to. DaNASCAT 01:09, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

mantibot color blind?

Hello, why did mantibot always revoque the polish link "pl:Nonźródła:Test: Czy cierpisz na ślepotę barw?" in the french and english uncyclopedia of "Are you colour-blind?" and "Êtes-vous daltonien ?". See you. {{SUBST:Utilisateur:El kloklo/sig2}} 11:19, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

I believe its because the Nonsensopedia page is located in a different namespace. I've reverted the change at en.Uncyc. -- Manticore (talk) 04:49, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Hungarian Star Wars Wikia

Hi. Maybe I am asking not the right person, but can you help me to find the admin of our site (http://hu.starwars.wikia.com/wiki). There are some major things should be done in that site, but since the admin is lacking we can not help us against the vandalism. Hoping your response, --Bikov 10.11.08 15:40 CET.

Interesting

Say me please. Are you and user:Mantic0re [1] from ru-Wikipedia same man? 195.218.129.43 17:04, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

No. I am User:Manticore (http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A1%D0%BB%D1%83%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%B1%D0%BD%D0%B0%D1%8F:Contributions/Manticore) on ru.Wikipedia. -- Manticore (talk) 06:52, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

MantiBot Request

Manticore, I would greatly appreciate it if you could get your MantiBot to go to work on The Third Turn. There are two items that I would appreciate addressed:

1) Most urgently, I need all pages that have the Template:ModResultForm in use changed to simply Template:Result Form (i.e. {{ModResultForm|Param1|Param2}} -> {{ResultForm|Param1|Param2}})

2) Also, if possible, could every page that has the Category:Craftsman Truck Series drivers in use to be transferred to Category:Truck Series drivers.

As always, thank you. —This unsigned comment is by DaNASCAT (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~! 18:30, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, all my bot software is on my laptop, which is being repaired again. Try asking someone else, otherwise you'll have to wait until I get it back. -- Manticore (talk) 03:20, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Hi DaNASCAT. I'd be happy to use Charibot while MantiBot is at the doctors. Let me know, I'll be around this weekend. --User? 16:31, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Someone has issues with you

Please click here; someone has a grudge against you and is displaying it on a public wiki. Perhaps you can find a way to make this person understand your position on those issues? --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 04:28, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

D. G. Neree is a liar and a troll. I wouldn't give any credence to what he says. -- Manticore (talk) 06:45, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
The users on that wiki may not know that. They only have D. G. Neree's account of events there and not yours. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 14:24, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
Frankly, I don't care. -- Manticore (talk) 02:46, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

That's not true! IT'S FALSE!!! Stop to nagg him out! I know DG as a good person. Stop it! CartoonistHenning 21:27, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Just look into the history of Manticore and Dg, you'll all see who's the big bad little boy. Ah hell, just look into Manticores history, it's a story on his own, a bad one that is. There's only one liar here and this page bares his name.. <A friend of DG who hasn't got a Wikia account>
"I've checked the IP. It is Manticore." Clearly a lie. Vandalising my Uncyclopedia talk page. Clearly trolling. -- Manticore (talk) 02:46, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Wesnoth Wiki

The logo over at Wesnoth Wiki, wiki.png, has been protected. I've temporarily uploaded a version, (Wiki2.png), since the only sysop available hasn't been active in a month. Could you unprotect the page, as well as favicon.ico? Thanks. --misken67 01:21, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

I've replied on my talk page there. -- Manticore (talk) 02:11, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

RE: Signature

Unfortunately, you and your friend Michealsaur-something are the only ones "offended" by my signature. I've signed with that on atheists' talk page, not a peep. I've taken that signature across wiki after wiki, nothing. You and your friend have been the only ones to whine about it.

I tried to be tolerant, I tried to understand, but you have no reason to your complaint, no one, I repeat, no one has been "offended". No one really cares! It is only when someone brings it up do people whine about it!

I hate to sound harsh, and I already tried using persuasion on Micheal, but your political correctness is annoying. No one has been offended except you, and you keep saying "it may offend some users". Who? Where are these offended people? Who are they? Show me them. I have not recieved any complaints from anybody on any Wiki.

You and Micheal are the only ones who have ever whined about it, and I will not change my signature for two people's intolerence of faith.

Furthermore, you lack the right to ban me if I do not change the signature, because I am a good faith editor, and I have benefited several wikis for years now.

Am I saying to people, "YOU MUST CONVERT OR I WILL SPAM YOU", or am I forcing people to change their ways?

No! All I am stating is that Jesus, who I personally believe is the Jewish Messiah who died on the Cross to save our sins (Christianity), loves you.

That's it. I'm not signing every post saying "JESUS IS THE MESSIAH", or "WITHOUT JESUS YOU GO TO HELL", or "CHRISTIANITY IS THE WAY", and though these are religious beliefs, all I am saying is that Jesus loves you.

Do you have a problem with being loved? Does it offend you that I believe that someone likes you? Does love toward a fellow man (like being civil or not swearing) bother you?

Due to the fact that no one has spoken or been offended about this except you and your partner, you have no vailid reason to enforce me changing my signature. Your intolerence of religion is not needed, and NO ONE has been offended! You and Micheal are the only people who whine about this!

Not one fellow user has come to me! Not one has whined! Just because you hate something does not mean you have the right to eradicate it!

I had to learn a lesson in discrimination on the Club Penguin Wiki, discrimination against Satanists and homosexuals. It's your turn to learn the lesson I needed to know.

You don't have the right to ban me, I have done nothing wrong. No one but you and Micheal have whined, so I will not change the signature.

I am sorry you can't tolerate faith.

I take it then that you would not have a problem with someone signing posts "There is no scientific evidence supporting the underlying principles of any religion." -- Manticore (talk) 05:03, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Offensive?

Hi,

I saw that you had a user remove "Jesus Loves You and Died for You!!" from his signature. I thought that you could post anything on Wikia, no matter what religion you have. Are you going to say that my userbox about being a Christian here is offensive and I shouldn't have it? Just curious, and I don't want to start a fight.

--JewntansOath My talk page / My contributions / Send me an email 01:51, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

There is a difference between placing a userbox on your userpage and polluting every forum and talk page you edit with religious diatribe. -- Manticore (talk) 05:06, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Building Bots

Hey Manticore, I'm beginning to learn how to work Python and pyWikipedia bots to get some ideas for my wiki (The Third Turn) running more smoothly. However, as a rather amateur Python prgrammer, I've hit a huge block - the login script. Everytime I run the login.py script, I get syntax error after syntax error. I don't really see anyone else talking about issues with it, so I must assume I'm either an idiot or I somehow missed the fact that I do need to work some parameters.

Thus, perhaps, you'd be willing to show me what your functioning script of login.py is. If you can download the nightly version and get it to work, perhaps it is my user-config.py and family file. I know you've ran a bot on the Third Turn before, perhaps if you don't think I should have any issues with login.py you'd be willing to share me how you set up those two files to work on my wiki?

I'm an excellent programmer in Java and CSS, but this Python script is throwing me for a bit of the loop at the moment. Any help you can quickly offer would be deeply appreciated. --DaNASCAT 00:18, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Make sure the bot's account uses Monobook as default (and don't allow anything to override this). Otherwise, you may have minor spacing or identation errors in the family file. What error message are you seeing in the traceback? -- Manticore (talk) 00:35, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

I need

a bot task to be done. Can you help? If you can, I was wondering if images from w:c:guildwars:category:Skill icon could be uploaded to Guild Wars Guilds? And on the image pages, could the license be changes to Kit and as well as the wikia credits taken away. — BalisticSig 00:42, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

If pybot does this, I haven't figured out how. You'll be better off asking in the forums or something. -- Manticore (talk) 00:47, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Template:Administrator

Hi, i have update the {{Administrator}} and took the liberty of updating your user page. My apology if that bothers you --Cizagna (Talk) Dofus » 14:29, 06 April 2009 (UTC)

Not at all, thanks for that. -- Manticore (talk) 02:36, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
