Hello merrystar. Since you are admin on muppet wiki, i thought you would enough this video. it is made by my favorite band, Ok go, and is pretty funny:) Just so i makes sense, at the end the dog muppet says, "Come back bunny!" the dog that ran awya was the lead singer's dog, Bunny Carlos:) Anyway here it is: Video Link{{SUBST:User:Spottedstar42/Sig|08:09,8/26/2011}} 08:09, August 26, 2011 (UTC)

yeah, we have a big group of huge okgo fans in our area, we have a little fan group on facebook and stuff. We all go to concerts together and everything.

How can I have my own bot? I kind of want one for cleanup purposes cross-wiki. Conker's Bad Fur Day 19:43, August 27, 2011 (UTC)

I'm fine

Don't worry I'm okay


Okay, I want to talk about Mcjeff from the GTA Wiki. I believe he went too far. First of all, he wrote this about all the staff members on his profile and made his talk page re-direct to his profile because he was mad about something so he insulted all the staff members and wouldn't let them talk to him. Here he called me a child (Which I am, I'm fifteen but he ment it as an insult) and also called me a brat in the summary. He then blocked me because of "Intimidating behaviour/harassment: Personal attacks" I was never intimidating anyone and I don't believe that it was a personal attack. If it is, I wasn't trying to personally attack Dan. I just didn't believe him when he told me why he set up the vote to demote, and told him that. I really do think Dan was trying to demote me for another reason. Usaully he tells me when the policy changes (see this) and I'm not following it. Instead of doing that, he just set up a request for demotion here. That's why I think there's another reason. I do admit, today I was sick of Jeff and was running my mouth a little but I don't think I deserved the block. For one thing, he's been making alot of personal attacks against me and the other staff and blocked me when I don't think I made a personal attack (Even if I did, I didn't mean to). The second thing is because I think he did it for revenge because I don't think it's a personal attack and I think he was just looking for a way to get me blocked. I believe McJeff is corrupt and Dan was trying to take my tools avay for another reason. I just wish you'd please look into it and tell me what you think. Thank you for your time. -Bunny J.

Complaints against other users need to be sent to Special:Contact if you feel there is some larger problem; however arguments between admins should be resolved on-wiki. There are several other active admins and bureaucrats on this wiki who can correct matters if one is having a bad day or behaving poorly, and if you cannot talk to McJeff then I recommend you talk to them. The block only appears to be for one day so I recommend you wait it out. Hopefully when everyone has calmed down you will be able to work through the disagreement. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:16, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

Rights on UNCP

I would like to apply for any combination of rollback, administrator, and bureaucrat rights on the Un-Club Penguin Wiki. I realize that other people are editing often, but I have found that the UNCP community has moved to another domain,

All the other users that often edit are more often vandalizing, and I want to be able to prevent them from ruining that wiki.


You can apply to adopt the wiki here. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 00:09, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

What do you do when the users still are adopting a wiki while their request is denied from requesting to adopt a wiki if they are blocked indefinitely on a wiki?Terrific joker 03:12, September 9, 2011 (UTC)


I'm done with the wiki. Thank you for reminding!

The only reason why I don't unblock the moving main page is that we want to protect the wiki from Google ranking to prevent abuse.

Help with resizing templates

How do you resize a template? I mean the actual template itself, not the text. Thank you. :) Curly-BraceXD 20:42, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

Like we told you in chat, you need to provide a link to the template in question as all a template is is something that can be transcluded onto a page, this could be anything so we need to see your code.--GodPray  20:47,9/9/2011

Contesting a Block

Hi. I would like to contest a block on the Un-Club Penguin Wiki.

i was blocked by Unknown4 indefinitely for the following reason:

Douchebag: Messing up my humor, being a douche, trying to adopt against my will. If he does adopt he'll turn it into hell and make himself dictator

I also received a message from Scrollbars saying the following:

Hi there. Your humor is not fucking funny.

Take for example. There's no fucking humor in it. Remember, this wiki IS ABOUT HUMOR, NOT THE EXCESSIVE USE OF CURSE WORDS.

Also, been 5 days since you last edited.

tl;dr: stop masturbating, get off your lazy ass and add some humor.

And since you're from the cruddy old CPW, here's laymen's terms: You are not funny, and you need to edit.

Please unblock me.


You should report this to Special:ContactTK999 14:33, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
Maybe you were blocked because of that foul mouth of yours. You swore at least five times on this post. --Colgatecity 15:47, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

Mafia Wiki rights

Hi Wendy, my cousin went on my laptop and thought it would be funny to remove my rights, could you please restore my Bureuacrat rights on the Mafia Wiki, thanks. Tom Talk 18:43, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, I might be able to return to the GTA Wiki in a few months if I manage to find the time but right now I've got to focus on college. Tom Talk 09:48, September 11, 2011 (UTC)
Looks to me your rights are restored because you might have hopped off from the user rights. Thats why you have to be careful not to fall off or the staff may restore your rights. You may have to be demoted safely by the staff. Demoting yourself is dangerous so try to take care of your user rights.--Terrific joker 00:37, September 11, 2011 (UTC)
Huh? Sorry but I'm not really sure what you're trying to say. I wasn't demoted by Staff or by myself, my cousin went on my laptop, I was logged on to the L.A. Noire and Mafia Wiki's, and decided it would be funny to remove my rights on both of those Wiki's. Tom Talk 09:48, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

Spotlight page

Hey Wendy,
Sometimes I keep an eye on the spotlights request page, and if I see a wiki that doesn't meet one of the criteria listed I sometimes leave a note letting the person know that it doesn't meet the criteria. Is this annoying for the staff haha? Should I stop? I just do it to give people a bit of a quick response clarifying the criteria, but I guess you have to come anyway to give an official response. Anyway thought I'd check I'm not being an irritating smartypants by doing it.
Also, I just notice the amount of requests that don't seem to meet the basic criteria - and I wondered if perhaps with the criteria could be a step-by-step list of how to check your wiki meets all the things. Eg, people might not know the rough 300kb guide for stubs? I did a quick list here, just to give you an idea of what I'm on about. Just a suggestion tho!
Thanks,--Acer4666 21:31, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Acer. I don't mind you helping people figure out the criteria and answering them on the page. But yes, I will always answer each request as well. I think most of the criteria are reasonably well defined at the moment. The 300bytes guideline is a rough estimate that works on many wikis; but pages marked as stubs also count for example, and wikis with big templates I have to assess differently by figuring out how many "bytes" it takes on top of the template to indicate a page with real content as well. So I don't particularly feel it is helpful to put that into the guidelines. I do appreciate you taking the time to work out a "how to check guide", but I think that just listing the criteria makes a cleaner, more easily read page for most people. We want the criteria to be very obviously listed, and not buried in the middle of explanations on how to find the information. I can see, however, that it might be useful to clarify where to find uncategorized pages, etc., and I will look at tweaking that.
Truthfully the page has always had as many requests by unqualified wikis than qualified ones, much as the adoptions do. In fact my impression was that it had been getting better lately! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:18, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
Many thanks for the response - those additions to the page are great.
Just about what I meant with the unqualified requests: I didn't mean more in recent times, I just a meant a lot generally which I thought would go down with more detail on the criteria section. I guess we'll see!
And about the 300kb - I realise that often even if you meet the 300kb criteria, you still may not be eligible, but am I right in thinking the converse is not true? ie, the 300kb rule is kind of a "lower limit" and you must at least meet that (or possibly exceed it in the special cases you mention)? If so, I think that would be useful to mention, with a note about large stub templates or placeholders, rather than no indication of how you define a "stub". But, your choice of course. Cheers--Acer4666 19:32, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
I think it's ok not to try to explain it; to be honest a "stub" should be pretty obvious when you see it. Usually wikis where it's a problem know the pages are placeholders or lacking much information. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:37, September 14, 2011 (UTC)

Hello Merry

Hello, I coe to you in distress from the Pirates Online Players Wiki (the drama filled one, yes). We have a user who is excessively swearing, and all admins are offline. I also believe that what he is doing is cybet bullying/harassment. Could you ban him on that Pirates Online Players Wiki specifically or globally for his actions? I've sent a message to Wikia already, tried to stop him by moving paes to my blog and disabling comments, but it all failed. He just goes around swearing. Here is a link to his contributions:

Thanks you, and sorry to bother you at such a time, but he is just extremely rude and our wiki doesn't allow swearing. Could you possibly delete the page (which is now my blog at with comments locked) also along with his swearign comments?

With regards,

Clone Wars Wiki Request #75

I am an editor of the Clone Wars WIki, though i have not edited in a while, and i am a large supporter of TVLwriter, the admin there. He runs the wiki, and recently requested Beaurecrat rights for the wiki, since it had been nearly sixty days. You requested that we wait out the next two weeks until he qualifies, but a few days ago, another admin made one edit, so TVLwriter no longer qualifies. I view this as an attempt to keep the wiki out of TVLwriter's hands, while not contributing to the wiki. I am outraged by this, and request that TVLwriter is given beaurecrat rights, regardless of the qualifications he no longer counts for due to the other admin's misuse of power. Please take care of this. Nearly everyone on the wiki is in support of TVLwriter, and he is finding it difficult running the wiki as the only admin.

Thank You,

Wheel of Time Spotlight

Hello! I know y'all are busy, but I wanted to let you know about something regarding The Wheel of Time Wiki's spotlight request. I had seen some java coding that removed the chapter summary links from our wanted pages listing, back before they were created. I've used that code to also remove them from the short pages listing. The reason that I have done this is so that we can easily see which normal pages are actually short pages and either expand them or tag them as short pages. All of the chapter summaries are listed in the appropriate sub-category of our stubs listing. When you do take a look at our wiki, I didn't want that to come as a surprise. Please let me know if you have any questions about this. Thanks for your time! ---- Willie - HtS 18:26, September 19, 2011 (UTC)

Sesame Street Muppet wiki Talk:Season 26 (1994-1995)

Hi, Merrystar! I am Ben! I had a question to ask you! What has been going on lately with the Talk:Season 26 (1994-1995) page redlink episodes on Muppet wiki? Apparently, nobody has edited them, and is left yet to find video information on this page on Muppet wiki. It has been at least 4 years now, and only a couple or few edits has been made over the past couple of years! Could somebody please upload video information to Muppet wiki Sesame Street Talk:Season 26 (1994-1995) Episodes? Please message me, and let me know if you have an answer!


UTCUser: Ben Malloy89567

A Toughpigs to Danny Horne IP Address Appology that I wanted you to let him know about whenever he gets back to community wiki, if you would, maybe.

Thank you for the information, Wendy on Talk:Season 26 (1994-1995)! :) However, I had something to tell you! Unfortunately, on Muppet wiki, and sure enough, it is a problem! :'( My name is Ben Malloy, and Henrick Rytter (A.K.A.): "H Rytter," Danny Horne, Toughpigs, and Oscarfan blocked my computer because I have been trying to edit the wiki for a couple or few years now! But, those guys blocked my IP Address as "Infinite!" I am more concerned how H Rytter called me a jerk! :-( I hope that there's a way they would unblock me, Wendy! I have been trying, and a couple or few days ago, they blocked my IP, and were very happy about it thinking I was a mean guy and all, when I am not at all a mean guy, Wendy! :) I actually appreciate that community message! Thank you! You are the one I can trust on Muppet wiki, and I thank you so much for writting me back, and I hope, Wendy that you are the one that trusts me on the wiki! ;) Despite that I do not trust H Rytter, and Oscarfan,I also apologize for the block that you made to me when I returned onto Muppet wiki a couple of months or so ago, yep that was me, but I made a mistake! Oh, and Merrystar, one other thing! I hope that you could contact Danny Horne, (since you are on the wiki), and tell him if possible to unblock my IP Address, and please let Danny Horne that I am sorry for the mistakes that I made on Muppet wiki, and their wiki. I know that I am dealing with wikis, but let's not even go there! :) My point is, I made a mistake, but Oscarfan doesn't forgive me apparently, he says that I am annoying. I am from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and no, I am not a mean gut like H Rytter had said, I am actually so called, "A Gentle Giant!" :) So, with that said, I hope you can contact Danny at Toughpigs and please tell him, if you will that Ben Malloy apologizes for his mistakes that he had made, and whenever he comes back on the community wiki, please tell him if you can that "If I don't make the same mistake over and over again, could you please unblock Ben's IP Address to prevent him from editing the wiki?" So, with that being said, however, could you please let him know and keep me posted, maybe sometime within' the next 72 hours, if not, sometime soon? Okay? I couldn't appreciate it more, and I thank you so very much!

Thank you Merrystar! You are my Muppet wiki sidekick, even though you blocked me one time!:)

From Ben Malloy.

Spotlight Artwork

Hi! I failed to make a spotlight artwork for Songpedia - My main problem was, the pixels were too small, so I didn't have enough space to put much stuff. So the artwork we need is something that would make people get interested and check the wiki out, my guess is they would probbobly be if they know the artists on the artwork. So we could put the most famous and well-known we can think of, like Justin Bieber, Michael Jackson, Lady GaGa, etc.. Thanks!

Thanks for doing the admin switchon with London wiki - my question now is where do I locate/switch on the Achievements? Jackiespeel 14:21, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

So where do I find the Special achievements and dashboard? Jackie

I clicked on the 'enable' achievements - and nothing happened (bar an 'Error on page' message at the bottom - but I am using a library machine).

Laurel and Hardy Wiki

Hi. I did post an adoption request for this wiki and now I have made over 70 edits and I would really love to have bureaucrat rights if that's ok so that I can add a new logo, add a background and just change it a bit because it is a bit run down. I will be regularly updating the wiki with new articles and pictures. Many thanks,

Stan Laurel 15:55, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

Spotlight Artwork images

Hi! I found images that you can photoshop to make it one, I can do that myself, but I'm less experienced than you. Click on an artist's name to view the image!

  • Michael Jackson - Pop is a shortcut for "popular", and that's what makes the King of Pop, popular.
  • Elvis Presley - Rock n' roll is a very popular music around the world, so the King of Rock will do
  • Justin Bieber - I myself don't like Justin Bieber, but since his famous for his musical work then fine...
  • Ludwig van Beethoven - His not as famous as the others but (hopefully) every classical music fan knows him.
  • Eminem - This rapper's works might be violent, profane, or disturbing, but he is one of the most famous rappers today!
  • Rihanna - Let's try a woman so women could appriciate the wiki.

I chose these people because their famous for their musical work and an average person would probbobly know their name or face, so if a person sees them on the image, then they'd click if they like music. 6 images should be enough for me, tell me if there's more space or you can't fit all of them. Thanks!

On the fusionfall wiki, the origanal owner left the wiki right after making it. I dont know how, but a user named Fusion Aquaabyss is the current admin. He is SUPER Abusive. He bans users almost everyday. On a page called "Dexlabs" I added a category with a list of inventions they made in game. He didnt like my edit, changed it back, and BANNED ME FOR A YEAR.

Stub Pages

Hi, I've been editing on Wikia since the beginning of last year and I created an account. Since then, I've started the iOS Gaming Wiki, and I would greatly appreiate it if you could answer a quick question. I was thinking about going for Wikia Spotlight and asked Grunny about how big a page needs to be to not be on the Special:ShortPages list. He told me that you were the best person to contact about Wiki Spotlights. To get a wiki spotlighted, there must be less than 1/5 of stub articles (under 300 bytes) on the wiki. Is there a way to see/list how many pages are under 300 bytes? Thanks, Sam2011 (Talk) 15:11, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

  • Okay, thanks! Sam2011 (Talk) 17:33, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

I'm 2nd on the wikia at the moment (the number 1 person doesn't want admin rights) so please could you give me the rights so I can clean up the wiki. Thanks,

Regarding the M&B wiki, you didnt take away the OLD Admins powers. ( Me and tephra are the new ones obviously)

User:Lenopow the wikiman 15:10, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

No, we do not remove the former admins rights when we do an adoption. If you feel there is some strong reason to do so, you can write to Special:Contact about removing them. But quite honestly there is generally little reason; the rights do no harm unless they are abused which is rare. If the former admin does return then you have one more user helping you out with the wiki who just happens to have some extra tools, and that's even better. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 17:59, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

Adoption if you're an admin?

Is it ever possible to adopt a wiki if the requester is the only active admin on that wiki? --DaPuViMe 18:36, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

Adoption requests are so that abandoned wikis can find new administrators. If you are an admin already at the wiki you are requesting adoption of, that would make no sense unless you are requesting bureaucrat rights, in which case that is perfectly acceptable.--GodPray  18:41,10/15/2011 

I'm just requesting bureaucrat rights. I've seen many making great edits and contributing to the wiki very well. I'm just unaware whether or not I'm eligible.--DaPuViMe 18:48, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, if you are the only admin, it is perfectly acceptable for you to request bureaucrat rights so long as the bureaucrats of the wiki have not been active in over 60 days--GodPray  18:50,10/15/2011 

Is it also all right if the wiki isn't inactive, just haven't had an administrator/bureaucrat team? --DaPuViMe 18:54, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, so long as the bureaucrat has not been active in 60 or mode days you are eligible to adopt it.--GodPray  18:57,10/15/2011 

Okay,thanks!--DaPuViMe 18:58, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

If there are other active users please let them know about your wish to become a bureaucrat; ideally there should be a community discussion but at the least they should have a chance to comment on it. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 23:58, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

I have. --DaPuViMe 00:43, October 16, 2011 (UTC)


My request adoption,change it to on hold,and check my reply?

I have answered on the adoptions page. I won't put the request back on hold but you can ask again once you are eligible to adopt and have discussed new admins with the other users. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:27, October 17, 2011 (UTC)

Wiki Spotlight

Hi, I contacted you a while ago about Wiki Spotlight Requests, and I have one quick question - Does the custom skin have to be a picture? Or does it have to just be a different colour than the default? I changed my Wiki to a blue background and wondered if that meant it would be okay for spotlight. My Wiki hasn't got anywhere near enough pages yet, I'm getting everything else sorted before I start creating more content pages. Thanks! Sam2011 (Talk) 17:33, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

I do not understand...

Hello ma'am! I recently looked on a Wiki and saw I was blocked.... By you. Could you give me any intel? Was I rude? Used language? Any of that? If so, thought I would let you know I was recently hacked by a Wiki user. Tama63. He has sort of a grude against me, since I even joined. And to let you know, based on past events, he will come here and start with his lies he constantly tells about me...... It really makes me feel sad. I have thought about leaving Wikia several times because of one Wiki. I will not share it with you, unless you want me to. I just do not really feel the need to spam your talk page more than this... I appreciate your judgement on why-ever you banned me :) Have a nice evening. Lord William Yellowbones of England

I don't believe I have blocked your account specifically anywhere. However I did recently change the settings on a local IP block at the request of POTCOPlayers admins. The admins who made the block neglected to include logged-in users on the IP in it; they asked for help because it was not blocking a long series of ban-evading sock accounts and they didn't know why. I changed the block to target any users on the IP, logged-in or not, which is what they wanted it to do. You would have to speak to the admins for the reasons behind the IP block originally, and to ask that it be lifted.
If your account has been hacked then you should write to Special:Contact about having it disabled. Likewise, that is the only appropriate place to describe an argument you might be having with another user on any wiki. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:35, October 20, 2011 (UTC)

Dinotopia Wiki

Hi it is I. Starfleet Academy. I am just here to say that I have got my new internet connection up and running!

Hey. A while back you approved the Uncharted wiki for a spotlight (here), and asked me to leave you a reminder to add it to the list. I've had a quick check and the wiki still meets all the criteria, so it'd be great if you'd add us now. Thanks. --Klock101 01:12, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

I've got a question and I was directed here to ask it: Do you happen to know whether a wiki can be spotlighted twice within the same year? If so, how long must one wait before it can be spotlighted again? Thanks,

Flamefang 18:23, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. Would 6 months be appropriate between the 2nd and 3rd? We're interested in taking advantage of times during which kids may have more time to join and participate on our wiki so, those times seem to be spring, as kids are getting out of school etc, and late autumn as they're settling into school but also preparing for the winter months. If not, that's totally fine but we want to be sure we can plan everything out beforehand accordingly. Thanks again,

Delay in comments show

Asked here and forwarded my finding to my viewers but they are still not content.

Quote: "I have a bunch of 'A Wikia contributor's that only comment and I have had some complains of their comment posts not showing up right away (saying up to an hour). I haven't experienced any delays so I wonder if it is because they are 'A Wikia contributor' or general wiki delay? (they treat comments as a live feed and expect instant results). I'd said I'd look into it and hope to know if it is a general wiki thing or otherwise. Thanks"

If you can lend any insight it be greatly appreciated.  Hollowness | Wall | Contr 05:13, October 23, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Wendy for your response, no worries it wasn't a rush issue and hope you have a great Halloween :)  Hollowness | Wall | Contr 03:39, October 26, 2011 (UTC)


I want admin on the Clone wars wiki. All but one Bero's have been offline for a year (Except one who hasnt been on in 10 days) and not even all the admins are active. I just want adminship. i Dont want to ADOPT the wiki.


You will need to speak to local admins then. Only they can promote you. The wiki is not eligible to be adopted nor can anyone grant you the rights without an adoption.--GodPray  04:04,10/25/2011 

Bureaucrat and Admin direly needed.

Hi Wendy! Thanks for allowing us to write on your Talk Page.

I put on an adoption request for Malaysia Wiki since last week, and still waiting for reply. I met all the requirements and granted permission from another (yeah, only another active user ATM) to become an Admin/ Bureaucrat. Since this may be the first Wiki about a country, this may become the biggest project any moment.

However, I still need the adoption before I start promoting the Wikia. Further details can be found on the Adoption Request page. Since we really need it to work, hopefully Wendy may look into my (you can take it as Our) issue ASAP.

Thanks in advance, Wendy!

Infinity Blade Wiki

Hi, I recently left a message on the Wiki adoption requests page, and you said that I would not be eligible to adopt as I had started another Wiki. I did explain that I was just bringing the Wiki to your attention because there is nobody to stop the vandals. Thanks, Sam2011 (Talk) 10:49, October 28, 2011 (UTC)

My mistake

When giving admin rights to another user, I went to check my own and somehow I must have granted myself rollback and admin rights. I wanted to ask you if you could grant me bureaucrat rights again or do i have to request them at Adoption_requests? El Krickettalk 22:52, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Merrystar. I have a question. Let's say that there is a wiki with 2 bureaucrats that are semi-active. One of them doesn't even edit the wiki whatsoever, but he answers his questions on his talk page. Would that wiki be eligible for a semi-adoption or what could be done about it? If possible, please respond on my talk pages since I edit multiple wikis. Thanks in advance! —Technology Wizard ·Contribs· ~Talk~ ·E-Mail·  03:04, 11/3/2011

Wrong Picture Deletion (its not spam)

Hi Wendy,

A few days ago you kindly loaded my photograph for use in Macroeconomics. Its name was DiagFuncMacSyst.pdf . Unfortunately another staff member VEGASTAR (Victor) whose sole aim is to delete spam, has claimed that this is spam and deleted it. He has no right to behave in this manner. Please draw the attention of the administration to this deviant!

Also will you please a) stop this happening again, VEGASTAR should be not allowed to abuse his opportunity rights and b) reinstall this diagram.

Thanking you, David Chester (Macrocompassion)Macrocompassion 16:01, November 3, 2011 (UTC)

RE: CategoryTree

Hi, thanks for your reply to my email. I already expected I wasn't clear enough :). Anyway, I was talking about these (Appearing on any category page with subcategories): [1]. They do not appear on our wiki:[2]. I already found out why though, it's because we have Category Exhibition enabled in WikiFeatures. I don't know whether it's a bug or intended though. - Tjcool007 (Talk) 12:23, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

Club Penguin Wiki

I would like administrator and bureaucrat rights there. The main admin's account was hacked. I was once an administrator, but I was hacked by someone who removed my admin and bureaucrat rights. The sooner you would reply, the better. Also, please have Brookelas and Sk8rbluscat demoted since they were promoted by the hacker, which was Sk8rbluscat.


About Adoption Request Page

Dear Wendy,

I see that you have not touched the Adoption Requests page for over a week now, so could you please spare some time to look at them so you can be up to mine? Also a suggestion for the page, the page laggs very badly on my laptop and so I am unable to access it via wifi, one suggestion is to clean up the page: delete all the approved and disapproved wikis or list them somewhere else.

Hi, I understand you want us to drop our main page protection. I'm afraid we cannot do that due to large amounts of vandalism to both our wiki, and our main page. We once had someone edit the main page templates to alter the main page entirely, and that counts as vandalism to the main page. So, if you are going to make us drop the protection in order to get a spotlight, I'm afraid I will have to decline unless you can approve of our request despite the main page protection. -- Bullet Francisco My Talk264 Edits Email Me 17:39, November 12, 2011 (UTC)

*shurgs*That's not really my decision, it was protected due to vandalism, but IDK if I can unprotect it. -- Bullet Francisco My Talk264 Edits Email Me 03:19, November 13, 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, misunderstanding. Do you still want us to unprotect the mainpage for a spotlight? I'd have to consult the other admins if that is the case. -- Bullet Francisco My Talk264 Edits Email Me 04:01, November 13, 2011 (UTC)
I'm not so good at reading today am I? Sorry, I kinda just skimmed through what you said. -- Bullet Francisco My Talk264 Edits Email Me 04:11, November 13, 2011 (UTC)


I had made more than 10 edits on that other wiki Planet 51. How do i get the auto adoption notification to appear so i can go for an automatic wiki adoption so i don't have to get staff approval for this?TricklesTest 06:07, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

I looked at the article there but i want to adopt it without a staff doing it because the staff ones are silly. I want to adopt that wiki and give rights to myself.--TricklesTest 06:17, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

By the way. How many edits do you want me to have before i even adopt that wiki?--TricklesTest 06:45, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

Does that mean i have to make 1 article or more in 1 day or a week. I'm not sure of how many days should i create in-order to adopt that wiki.--TricklesTest 06:55, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

Help with Templates? Wiki Navigation?

Hi Wendy! Can you help me with making and editing templates? How do I do this? I'm kinda new to this template thing so I need help. Can you help me find out how to make and edit templates or send me to a link (that's not confusing please) that tells how to do that? Thank you! Also, I see that there is a new layout/style for the wiki navigation. Can you tell me how I can change a wiki navigation to the newer layout on my wiki? How do I change it to make it look like the newer version? I want to do it for one of the wikis I am admin and bureaucrat on. Thank you so much! Bye! Please respond ASAP!

About vandalising

Recently on my wikia:

there has been an anonymous user who repeatedly edits the wiki through a proxy. The person's IP address repeatedly changes as he provides false information and creates useless and rude pages. I wish for this person to be stopped as soon as possible as he doing the wiki great harm.

Reminder: that he changes his IP address but the front part is known as 153.107.97.XXX

Please help as soon as possible.

But its heavy duty to try but sometimes. I have to work on something else but when i'm not here. They need to put me inside the tunnel and into groups which is the adotpion things i need so that they can think about altering user rights so they need to hurry up because this story is not going to a disaster. So they need to do it now or i will report this patients to wikia and the site will try it. So i want them now immediately.--TricklesTest 18:30, November 19, 2011 (UTC)
