"Could we unlock this page please? It's been over 6 months and I think we can be trusted with this again. You never know what ideas might suddenly come to you, but it's frustrating that we can't add them if the page is locked. For example, I just came up with one addition to add to it (that being Makunga seeing Alex's return to take over). I think we've had this page locked long enough and I see a lot of grammar/spelling errors. That said, could we please have this page unlocked (along with Evil Gloating, Threats, Blackmails and Intimidation, Deception, Manipulation and Treachery, Revealing the Monster Within, among other locked pages)? You know what they say, a wiki contributer's work is never done.23:56, July 2, 2020 (UTC)Ngh93 (talk)"
I thought users were supposed to ask admins about the possibiliy of unlocking pages (for how long), not whine about it on talk pages. Talk pages are useless.
Sorry I guess I just got a little confused. It's just that some wikis have unlocking requests on the talk pages (like villains wiki) and I guess I placed that request just out of mere instinct. I completely forgot I could just as easily ask you. My mistake.
So, with that major awkward factor aside, could we please have all those aformentioned locked pages ready for us contributors (as explained in my original request) as mentioned for reasons above? You never know what ideas might suddenly come to you, but it's just exasperating that we can't add them if the page is locked. Along with spelling and grammar revisions.
So for our frist step, could we have the opportunities page unlocked so I can add that Makunga example to the quotes and gallery? Along with all those other pages I mentioned?
Like I said, a wiki contributor's work is never done. And nor is an article completely finished. They're just ideas that come to you every now and then. So can we please have those articles finally unlocked? Please let me know once you've done so. I think we've waited long enough to prove ourselfves as responsible contributors.
Thanks I genuinely appreciate it. You are a true friend.
That's a very difficult question. TBH, I was hoping them to be unlocked forever. I didn't really have any deadline in mind for locking it again. Unlocking a page then promptly locking it again, that sounds like going back to the drawing board. Rather irritating to say the least.
I know you're trying to be cautious. And so am I. And believe me I don't want any edit wars or spam either. But in the quite seldom event of such abuse, I would suggest locking the page for approx one month. No more, no less.
Anywho, you think you could have the pages unlocked and see how this works out? After all, one important thing about being an admin, I might add, is you must be willing to take risks.
Please go & choose a different (trope) page to edit for real (go to "Category:About Villains" or press the "Random page" option on the "Explore" button) instead of going after the same trope pages over & over again.
Queen Misery gave me a rather unfair infinite ban on Villains wiki just because she thought I was being rather rude to other users. To be honest, I think that's a bit excessive. In my defense I honestly didn't mean any harrassment rudeness or harm villains wiki. I didn't even know I was being rude. I honestly thought the user
In my defense I honestly didn't mean any harrassment or harm villains wiki. I didn't even know I was being rude. I honestly thought the user It's just that I suffer from autism and I constantly don't recngize my tone of voice, and thus I don't even regonize when I sound rude or forceful. And when you wrote on my villains wiki wall stating "Manners something [I] clearly lack you don't tell a crat to get lost" it really hurt my feelings.
I honestly thoguht the user User:HailToTheKing978 was the harrasser given he constantly wrote on me to put captions for the gallery pages when he could easily do it himself. I didn't mean to do any disrepsect I'm still working on that.
Could you help me reach out to Queen Misery and tell her this block is a genuine misunderstanding? Help me convicne her lift my block agian or at least lift my ban to March 4, I can show her I can still work on my corteousy on villains wiki. I mean, being unable to edit on one of my favorite wikis ever again breaks my heart greatly. 😢
Queen Misery wrote: lying, I simply told him the rules and he told me to shove off and now acts like a victim.. that's all I'm saying, also I won't undo the block.
I am sorry, but with all due respect, you misinterpreted. I didn't understand the rules. I am not a liar. I am austitic and sometimes my communications come across in a manor that I don't intend. The Villains wiki is my favorite thing to do. I would genuinely appreciate it if you you lift my ban. I would be most appreciative.
as I said to B1 I know plenty of people with autism, mental illness and so on - it doesn't excuse telling admins (who you know are in charge) to get lost when they are trying to help you, you knew not to do that.. you need to be treated the same as other users, you can't be given special treatment or everyone would.. you'll have to wait out the block, which may be lifted at some point but not right now.
B1bl1kal wrote: I should have known something was wrong. & really, using "my condition" excuse"? Really, Ngh93?
I am so disappointed in you.
in fairness autism does make it difficult to communicate at times B1, instead of focusing on that I have a solution : if he can prove that he understands he did wrong then I can lift the block in 2 days.. which is what any other user would get.
actually it is 1 day, hich is the minimum block the system allows - the other one would be a week, which would be too long since we seem to have resolved it.. so 1 day is not long, it will give plenty of time to think on things and then move on: as for galleries.. there is not an official rule on number of images but 20 to 40 is considered the most one should add, if a user is adding more then please inform admins (especially if a gallery has more than 100 images).. too many images damages memory.
also when admins respond on other admin walls or message-walls you don't say "I'm not talking to you" - admins are responding to your questions, telling them to go away defeats your whole purpose of making a request in the first place, you wouldn't like it if you told people about rules then they respond with "well I'm not talking to you", would you?
Thanks so much QM for reducing my ban. I genuinely appreciate the kind understanding chances you give me. See I realize and understand my mistake. I was irritated with another user constantly writing on my wall to do him favors and I let my irritation get the better of me. Well, I promise you next time something on the wiki gets on my nerves. I will restrain my temper and tone and talk things out more maturely. I assure you, I will not blow this last chance to edit, you can guarentee on that.
Quite relieved we could talk this out quite maturely. Thanks again. 😉
Now let's deal with her in an appropriate but reasonable manner. Believe me, giving her an infinite ban is the last thing I want, but she's trying my patience and yours.
So, here's my advice on how to settle this in a reasonable, civilized yet non-tyranical way. Just give her one more fair warning to make sure the images she inserts are of HQ. Not sure how decent exactly but definitely not anywhere around 10 or 20 KB or below. If she fails to heed your warning, give her block with an expiry of... say approx 3 weeks.
Is this about the images I've been posting??? I don't understand what you think I'm doing wrong. I've been giving out good images that are perfect to see. And it's becoming reasonable that you don't like and are jealous of me helping edit and build this wiki.
We're sorry but due to recent outbreak of both trolling sockpuppets & deleted/condemned pages being without first asking the wiki admins for permission/approval, this wiki is undergoing heavy cleanup & security watch until May, so no new pages will be made, except by admins & moderators, until further notice.
So, let me get this the basic point here. You're putting everything on this wiki on heavy security till May. Due to all those sockpuppetries and trolls.
Man those are irritating. Believe me I get frustrated with those vandals too. I know how you feel given that BaileyDavis sockpuppet incident I expereinced on Heroism WIki. No matter how much I requested that guy bocked, he kept creating new accounts till we finally took care of that pest for good. So I know how you feel on that.
Good luck with your heavy wiki cleanup. No rush on that. Take your time. Thx for the update.
If there's anything I didn't quite get accurate on this announcment please let me know. I wanna make sure I understand the basic point of this sockpuppetry outbreak and what decisions have been made to work it out.
PS: Maybe once this outbreak clears up, those pages could be free to edit since there'd be no threat or spam risk. Don't worry I'm sure I can wait till May so there's no rush.
In any case, I wish you the best of luck with your cleanup and resolving this outbreak.
Oh, one little piece of advice: I know this can-- and most likely will--get quite exasperating and frustrating at times, but don't let that get the best of you. After all, I'm kinda working on trying not to let to let these setbacks and inconviences make my anger get the best of me and you shouldn't let that get to you either.
& I know you're like the fan of same same trope & repeat performance,but come on my friend, this is the new decade in the 3rd millennium A.D. & I suggestively recommend you should do different trope pages like Rasputinian Death or Black Magic as well as non-trope pages like Joker Venom or Timecraft, anything @ all. You owed yourself that, bruh.
Remember what we talked about? No more enamouring over the same trope pages (such as Captures and Kidnapping) for example. Just pick a different trope page or a non-trope page @ random (like the DoraSceptre/Magic Wand for example).
If you need further assistance in info-hunting, use the link or this link for Super Sentai Zyuranger (better known as Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger) or any other show or movie you might know of to help you out.
Now if you excuse me, I have some history logs inspection to attend to.
Sorry. It's just that I faced the exact same glitch on heroism wiki. It's exceedingly frustrting.As far as I know, we still haven't solved that problem.
So for now, we decided to just use visual editor isnt ead of classic and click on source editor icon on the options icon while using visual editor. Appears to have worked fine. So I decided to do this temp solution for evil wiki as well. Appears to have worked for now.
What did I say about "no repeats on the same trope page"???
Do you wanna create such (negative) example out of this by getting blocked for it??
Seriously, people don't want repeats on the same thing over & over & over again all day everyday. People need to move onto different pages that requires a little editing & a little assistance. Me & the other admins hate cleaning up the same thing while there are other rthings that demand our attention.
Ok I’ll be honest. I don’t mean to edit o the same page repeatedly. I just don’t quite understand your method of using fixing the glitches. I’m just revising on what I know best. Which is using visual editor.
As mentioned above, the only solution I understand is just editing in visual mode. And I’m also encouraging other users to do visual editor on pages like captures & kidnapping to be on the safe side and make sure our edits don’t get removed with every publish.
So as you can see, I am trying my best to resolve this glitch. I most certainly didn’t mean to do more harm than good.
I know you don't approved of blurry tiny pictures as the rest of us don't. I get it. But that unnecessary screaming on the edit summary & getting on KYLIE1114's case about it is not helping nor it is what you called editing.
Next time, talk to her or just target the unwanted pics with the already mentioned reason.
Oh ok. Sorry my mistake. I was just getting rather fed up with Kylie ignoring our warnings and wiki rule explanations (much like thatBaileyDavis Sockpuppet in heroes wik—despite solving that problem i’m Still recovering a bit from the stress).
With Kylie she’s already been blocked once for continuous poor quality images. How many more chances should we give her?
But whatever the case I will do my best to keep my cool and settle this issue maturely.
Sounds Harsh but still reasonable enough to me. I mean sometimes you gotta be harsh to get that user to understand the seriousness on how close she is to being banned.
For her sake I hope she doesn’t blow this final chance.
