Yeah, I was a bit ban-happy in the past, so I wanted to give them a chance. They blew that, didn't they? They're gone, and I plan to promptly re-ban them every year I'm here. From now on, nonsense-insertion is an auto-ban. In case they have friends, I have also raised the protection level to admin-only on Orphanage Girl.
"When Will They Ever Learn; Oh, When Will They Ever Learn?"
They most certainly did, with today it has been the fourth time in total that I had to undo those changers. It's odd as it doesn't make any sense at all as there is simply nothing in the canon that gives away her name, let aloen that Stacey can hardly be called a Japanese name.
And don't even get me started on the notion of her relatives.
Here's a question. We now have the ability to disable anonymous edits. People would have to register to edit, ending nonsense like 'Stacy' and Mayu possessing an extra appendage, so to speak. At the very least, no one can run up and vandalize articles without going through the process of creating a username. That at least slows things down. But it also potentially discourages the casual user, who just wants to stop by and test the waters.
Should I enact this restriction? It doesn't seem to be asking much, yet our circle is so very small, I'm concerned about locking that state in forever. What do all of you think?
Hey there, I would liek to ask if it were possible for me to get a page on the fanworks? My first EL fanfic is almost finished and with getting ready to start publishing the 2nd I think I should add my own works to this wiki.
It certainly wouldn't be impossible, though it would be a layered effort, as in 'Lucy' currently existing as a redirect to Kaede. That said, I think I will keep the article titled as Kaede for the present. But since I don't now and never wanted this to be a one-user operation, I gratefully accept your edits, some of which I will debate, but like Mister Gaiman said about cats, if two fans ever actually agreed completely on a fave series, something bad might happen. :)
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.
