No, sorry. For safety reasons, our standard praxis is to close wiki management threads when we notice that they have reached over 400 posts. That way we minimise the risk of being without an important report thread for a prolonged period of time.
I wasn't sure whether there was a specific thread for this, but since I couldn't find one I'm posting it here. Would someone knowledgeable on profile creation mind looking through this one for me? I made it just now and to the best of my abilities, but it's my first one so I just want to make sure I haven't made some hidious abomination against vs debates that would cause the world's first vs debators to roll over in their graves out of sheer disgust.
Yes. Any time somebody changes their username, all of the comments in their blog posts automatically get wiped out. I have mentioned it to Fandom long ago, but they do not seem to have fixed the issue.
I do not have enough free time to handle this for you. You have to do so yourself, both in terms of contacting the Fandom staff about restoring the comments, and the calc group members to avoid misunderstandings. My apologies.
Okay, reposting here as the other thread is super "Staff Only" so far:
"Do not create any joke profiles, as they do not fit into our tiering system. Also avoid creating profiles for fan characters, advertisement characters, memes, YouTube personalities, reality television, talk shows, music videos, stage personas, and the like. If you wish to create such profiles, feel free to do so in the Joke Battles wiki instead. Take note that there is obviously a difference between a profile written as a joke, and the character itself being automatically funny."
- Editing Rules
I think the bolded part may need to be edited or something?
Wait a moment. I could try to handle the category change with Kavpeny's Bot account that he left in my care. I have never used it before, but it is good training for me to try new things, even though the autism makes it harder for me to break routine.
I suppose that could be an idea, but I do not know how to make the Discord channel official, or how to give our staff members the ability to moderate it by banning rule-breakers and the like.
In addition, if we make the channel official, it would attract a lot of unwanted troll attention, and also cause the official Fandom staff to consider the same rules to apply there as here, so if any staff member would say something inappropriate, and somebody else took a screencapture, they would risk to get banned, which we definitely do not want to happen.
I would also like to keep the regular wiki chat room around, for those of us who do not want to use Discord, in case we need to have private conversations.
I talked with Promestein about it, and we seem to have agreed that it would be too risky.
I have heard directly from the Fandom staff that they consider the same rules to apply to their official Discord chat channel as within the wikis. If we made our own chat channel official by linking to it here, the same would logically apply for us.
I am concerned that several of our staff members would eventually get banned from Fandom due to not realising that they have to watch their every word just like in the wiki/that it wouldn't be a casual chatroom, and given that we would have no protection filter in place there, the slightest slip-up could lead to years long blocks (if any trolls send them screencaptures), that would also upset other staff members and cause them to quit.
As such, this definitely seems like an unnecessary risk.
Yeah, there've been multiple requests to make a VSBW Discord group, but it was agreed to be far too risky for many reasons. And the words spoken from Fandom staff also further elaborate that we shouldn't be too involved in making big Discord groups. Private conversations with friends are perfectly fine, but a wiki wide group might get too chaotic too fast.
I would honestly prefer not having an official discord if the Fandom's stance on regulation is true. I like seeing a more free and bizarre online environment, and having to follow the same rules as here will kill any chance of that
Btw I am also glad we are only against this due to valid reasons, because I had the fear that the previous you know what incident had simply instilled a distrust of discord in people and that was it when it came to our refusal to make an official server. Relieved to see it was not that simple
Robot Randy is locked for some reason? It doesn't seem like a particularly important page that warrants this, and it has some additions that need to be made (no link to Inorganic Physiology, abilities that straight-up shouldn't be there like "Dancing Skills," grammatical errors).
What exactly... is controversial about Castlevania, if you don't mind me asking? I suppose Simon and Richter would probably be popular pages due to Smash, but Ness is unlocked, so that can't be why. I can't fathom for the life of me.
Mikoto would probably be one of the primary reasons, and the fact that Matt once got them upgraded to 2-C, but has since regretted that. But it's another verse that is both commonly downplayed as well as having multiple people who exaggerate the statistics. And the Tier 2 ratings for the Earthbound cast are considered clear cut and no one really argues against them; I think that was the reason they were considered uncontroversial.
Meng Hao (Post Immortal Ascension)'s speed for the first two keys should be MFTL+, since he's faster than his last key here. It was brought up in that CRT as well, but since it wasn't in the sandbox we made, I think Ric forgot.
Could someone unlock it real quick so I can change that?
From what I recall, RailWAM is not updated automatically, but rather continuously has to be taken time to manage, nor does it show an archived history beyond when it was first added, so it is not very convenient at all.
Well, you can ask Promestein and A6colute about it if you wish. However, I have regularly followed our WAM score for a long time, and it has been steady around 99.35 to 99.59 (today's value btw) for quite a while now.
@Ant: The speed has been changed, but Nepuko also got the Ancient Realm key back to High 1-B, since the CRT specified that "countless" meant "infinite" in that particular context (at least from what the guy they asked said).
