It's too bad I only ever get to message you when there is something not quite right on the wiki, but there is little to do about this.
This time it's yet another anonymous contributor. This person makes no edits, and only makes a rare comment, but among the total of 6 comments (what can be seen on their contribution page + 1 that I deleted outright), I had to address 3 already.
Since this person doesn't have an account, I'm not sure if warning is going to do any good. So I would like to request a block for this user.
PS: Since the vast majority of Wiki's activity has shifted to the SL3 Spoiler Page recently, I recommend that one or two users--frequently seen on this page, and with good behaviour record--are promoted to moderators. In particular, Rumstein and Nkg should be great candidates assuming they would be interested.
I am really sorry for the late reply. I had a busy exam session that lasted 2 months. I am exam free now, but the next set of exams are only around the corner. I will deal with it. I will edit this post once I have.
Again thank you for everything, I really don't mind you coming to me.
EDIT: Please let me know of cases like this.I saw his comments. Honestly, if people can't show respect to others, they don't deserve to be on this Wikia. I have banned him for a year. If there is anything else, please let me know.
The reason I saw this really late was, when I visited it for the first time in a few months towards the end of Feb, I didn't see your post due to not being logged in
Welcome back from the exam-heavy session; I hope you managed well! =)
Thank you for addressing the problem user, though I would also like to reiterate my PS request for additional content moderators among the people who are active on SL3 Spoilers page.
Moreover, I've had a few ideas about reorganising the wiki structure / navigation to properly accommodate both the common and the divergent points of the different stories (e.g., changing the MediaWiki:Wiki-navigation), so I was wondering if you could promote me to an admin since I cannot edit them with my current privileges. Secondary benefit to this is that I don't have to bother you (or Hussey) whenever we get a problematic user, since I'm here far more often than I like to admin and both you and Hussey have been quite busy lately.
Hi Demonright, I need an admin's touch. While it's not the common case of maledits, the user Ryuusui has been editing the Wulin/Ability page over and over again for no apparent reason other than to get more edits. At first, it was about changing "Golden Dragon King" to "Gold Dragon King" only to change it back to "Golden Dragon King", and then do it all over again. Now, after I've made a remark after undoing the latest "Golden" to "Gold" edit, it appears the focus has shifted onto "Schemer" to and from "Scheme" instead.
Since warning is apparently not doing the trick, and this user doesn't appear to make any meaningful contributions to the wiki, I would suggest a short-term block. Though, if you think it's too much, then maybe at least a warning from someone with the admin authority might help.
I always try to "police" the wiki activity for spoilers, maledits, and so forth, and this kind of behaviour only makes the job more time consuming than it already is. Moreover, the motivation is most likely to get the badge for recurring edits or for a certain number of edits, and it's not really fair to those who actually worked hard on this wiki to deserve those badges.
I have issued a warning, even though his/her actions have annoyed me. Because I have spent a lot of time on this wikia in the past. Hussey274 has spent even more time on it. Ryuusui's actions are stupid. I decide to warn the user because he/she seems intersted in Doulou Dalu. But If Ryuusui actions are repeated again, I will ban him for a month or two. Let me know please.
Hello Demonright and Athanos, I just like to point out that Athanos has not made any warnings to myself but has just made a rant on your wall. Believe it or not I have collated information on Wulin's abilites etc from the spoilers and google translation which I am ready to release after catching up to the latest raws. At the moment I am having difficulties adding/setting up the boxes on the page which is delaying adding some information on the wiki. Yes, I do agree I have done some maledits to keep my tracker alive which on reflection may have upset people on this board which I apologise for.
I will stop using this account to make any edits. I feel this is probably the best way to show my sincerity.
It's difficult to acknowledge your appeal to sincerity when you open with something that is demonstrably false; there is nothing simpler than to verify the existence of my remark to your maledits. It's in the contributions' log on my profile. Also, it'd be an amazing coincidence if you suddenly decided to switched from "Golden to Gold" maledits--ones you've been making for some time without any deviations--to "Schemer to Scheme" maledits the moment I made the remark addressing the former without reading it.
That said, despite what I--and anyone who has noticed this issue--may think of your right now, feel free to prove me wrong.
PS: Keep in mind that even if you gather information from spoilers and raws, only information revealed in the fully translated versions of the LN and / or Manhua can be covered by the articles on the wiki.
User 184.108.40.206 is being rude an obnoxious in the DD3 comments - he has some valid suggestions however he is rude towards the translators. I would like to request a temporary block on his posts so that he can think on his actions and maybe come back calmer and diplomatic in his discussions.
I second this request. There is hardly ever the need for intervention, but I have already had to step in a couple of times to moderate Anon's (220.127.116.11) comments, and it appears that even the most polite of requests by users, not even warnings, are having any effect.
Thank you for all the contributions towards the Wikia. Just came back from Uni and thought I would see the spoilers for SS3. I checked 18.104.22.168's post history, his comments are incredibly rude to other translators. I have blocked him for two weeks. I can change the length if you think its not long enough. Please let me know. If his actions are repeated after the 17th of October (when his ban ends), again please let me know. I will issue him with a one year ban. If either of you get the opportunity, just remind everyone that abuse will not be permitted.
Hello to you too, I wasn't whether you're active around the wiki these days. Hope you're well. =)
Thanks for the resolution of the problem user. There is rarely any need to warn people, or to use my moderation rights (most of the time I only remove accidental double-posts, or merge consecutive posts by the same person to streamline the comment section). This was a rare occurrence as far as I can tell.
So now a new site for translations has been released. And they have all the chapters up to like 240 or something like that. And currently I'm reading them. And I'm just wondering if I should update pages according to this or if we should just wait for BlueSilverTranslations.
If there was no Uni work I would have been great, but there is too much ahah! yeah i have noticed, also cut down on the swear words pal, its bad for the wikia. I noticed you and Athanos are on here a lot, thanks for the contributions :)
