Dude, I wanted to contact you because my best friend wanted to create a new Wiki here on Wikia, but since he has no experience administering wikis, I want to ask you.if you can help us and give him a few tips on how to run his new Wiki. Namely, how to ensure trolls do not pollute our new Wiki, how to ban said trolls, how to add or delete new pages, and basically how can he fully access his powers as administrator and/or grant similar powers to fellow users (That way, for example, he can add me like you did on this Wiki so I could better help him and save time, too).
Sorry for asking this so suddenly, it's just that you seem to be a very helpful guy so you pretty much were the first person we thought of asking about this.
I'm not great with infrastructure. For a lot of this, you'd be better off going to Community Central. What I can offer up is :
1 - Have a degree of trolling. A person who raised his opinion obnoxiously needs to be warned. People who delete pages or just offer up 'Mayu has a dick' entries you ban immediately and for a year. All you do to ban them is click on their names and follow the ban marker.
2 - As Admin, they should be able to click on your name and change the user access level. Its all part of the same menu options.
Yeah. I can't seem to read it either. But from what I saw : It's okay to dislike Kaede. Many of her actions were monstrous. But if we cannot forgive them, we can at least comprehend them and her a bit better.
I´m one of the two admins that are maniging the german elfenlied wiki. I stumbeld upon your site while searching for information about the clone diclonii and was really impressed by the design and amount of pages ( german wiki only has 100 sites so far =P, though i think we have all important info on it) .
I hope you don´t mind that i look up some info here, since it´s much easier than to read the whole manga again ^^.
don´t worry , i´m already pretty impressed by the way how you wrote a summary about all chapters + added pics =).
if you would like i could send you the link to the german wiki (i´ll do it either way, even if you say no =P). Just in case you you get a little curious about it´s looks ^^. But don´t expect to much, since only two admins usually do everthing on the wiki (the anons are usually me, cause i tend to forget to log in) while the rest just delete text from pages and replace it with one word.
Sorry to but in, but someone I know raised an issue that's been gnawing at me for a while. most wikis in German have .de on the start, while English ones have none. Would it be possible for a rename to occur so the hyphen can be removed from ours and the German one to have .de on the start of it?
Am I able to remove speculation from articles? EX: Saying someones age is 13-16 or 23 when it's never been stated. And relatives too, I don't think "Presumed Mother/Father" works, we should try and provide accurate info from the series.
You are able - but I'll ask you not to. Most speculation in these articles is mine, and I have been scrupulously careful to keep speculation/extrapolation both to a minimum and connected to actual information from the series. There is speculation stuff I gladly and cheerfully put in my fics that I would never put in the Wiki, for precisely the reasons you give.
Individual changes we can discuss, but nothing whole hog.
My motto is, this wiki is always a work in progress. All I ask is, just in case, keep the old templates around as a back-up, but otherwise, go for it. I'm responsible for a large amount of the text here, but I freely admit, close to 80% of infra-structure is the work of others. Many, many others, all of whom I am crazy grateful to.
Sure thing. By the way, I suggest removing the "Wiki To-Do List" from the navigation, it's got nothing in it; and renaming "help" to "Community" and adding "Find a Rollback" and "Find a Chat Moderator". It's just a suggestion, but a lot of wikis have a set up like this.
Sure thing, sorry about the late reply. I had some work stuff to attend to. >_< But I'm set to start on the navigation soon, so yeah. Thank you. Just promote me when you can, oh, I can also affiliate is with a much, much, larger wiki (1,000,00+ views a day) if you wish. It might attract editors. >_< I hope you understood all that. :P
There is no larger Wiki than us. We eclipse all other Wikis, and they are one and all in an orbit around us. If we shrug, Wikis for lesser anime like DBZ, Sailor Moon, One Piece and that little ninja story are pulled apart and rendered micro-meteors. If we but glance, there is no K-On or Haruhi. When we rage, wizarding fans grab their heads in pain and go "Harry Who?". Always remember : A 14-episode, 107-Chapter anime/manga beats all those silly 500 chapter/ep upstarts.
Now that I've taken my meds, attracting others is fine, but I'm not gonna promote them all. I might ask you to be point for any admin-level suggestions they might have, and thanks!
Ahahahahahah. Perfect description of DB and Sailor moon xD. I'll select maybe one or two, and ask their admins for advice and a few pointers. I can begin work tomorrow, it's late here in Australia so I nee to sleep. Lemme know what/anything else you need.
OMG. Rofl. Creepypasta... *shudders* and aged I haven't watched M*A*S*H in yonks. Btw, if you ever need me check the Fairy Tail Wiki's chat, I'm usually found there; I lay in bed and go on there from my iPod a lot, so yeah.
I posted a reply to the Kaede discussion without logging in and moments later posted that same thing while logged for the sake of identifying myself as the poster you might want to remove the original wiki contributor post as being one of mine its quite long.
