Hello. I would like to ask you about the moderation on this wiki. I recently made an edit in an article that then got reversed by a content moderator. I explained why I did this edit yet the content moderator instead of engaging in discussion about it or at least adding a reason for their reversion, simply reversed the article a second time. Confused as to why this was I wrote on their message wall and asked them what their reasons for this was. Instead of answering, they simply deleted my post on their wall.
So mty qustion here to you is: when something like this happens... as a normal user, how should a proceed? Should I make a complain with the admin of this wiki? Or is there some other protocol or proper procedure that I can follow?
Since it apparently isn't obvious enough, I shall reply since you keep pressing on about it. She wouldn't have died instantly if he just crushed her jaw and, with the amount of strength he has, he could easily crush her head just like that.
And even so, the difference between her dying via jaw crushing or head crushing is a negligible detail regarding a minor character. The only thing that actually matters is that she's dead.
I do not find it obvious, nor do I find anything that suggest that she died right away. Sure he could have crushed her head, buty we see him grab her jaw and squeeze, then in the next panel (showing only Sweet Mask) she dies. So where did you get the idea from that he crusher her head? Since there is nothing supporting this and since this is a wiki, we can't arbitrarilly add stuff we have no proof of. At best we can write that he grabbed her jaw and then killed her since we weren't explicitly shown how she died.
Well, now that we are talking, how about we remove that info about him crushing her head since there is no such proof?
Again, like I said... why did you reverse it if you found it neglible? As I see it, adding correct info is not neglible, so I have every reason to change it and make it correct. You however say that information is neglible, so why are you reversing it and changing correct information into incorrect information?
So, if I change it again, since it is neglible in your opinion, will you reverse it again... and if you do, why?
How would he crush her head when he was only holding her jaw? But as I pointed out earlier, we aren't shown how she dies. We are only shown that he is holding her jaw, not her head. For all we know he could have crushed her spine instead... or maybe he was holding a tomato in that panel? We simply don't know. So making the leap from him holding her jaw, and say that he crusher her head is just providing false information. This is why we can't write that he crushed her head since there is no proof of this but infact information that suggest that he only crushed her jaw. So even if you don't change to that he crushed her jaw, you simply can't say that he crushed her head. Wikis deal with actual information so we can't add things that we can't verify.
So at the very least, the part should be changed so that it doesn't make any claims as to what the cause of her death was.
Because, as I've said, he has the strength to do so. And it's not like he was just gently holding onto her chin like in first version, he had a hard grasp over her whole mouth and cheeks. It's entirely feasible for someone like Sweet Mask to crush her head when holding it like that.
There's just as much proof for him crushing her jaw as there is for him crushing her head. So your edit to the page was unnecessary and thus I reverted it. It's as simple as that really.
If you want to change it so that it's ambiguous, be my guest. No need to get so riled up over such a meaningless topic.
In the original he was holding the tip of her jaw gently, but as you can see in the link I provided you, the jaw isn't just the "chin", the jaw is the entire lower part of the head. The head however would include the jaw AND the skull.
I hope this sheds some light on things. But yes, thank you for allowing this discussion.
Hello! A few questions/requests for regarding "A Hero Nobody Knows" game.
Would you be fine with adding that recently released game on the main page somewhere?
In addition to adding the Category:Games on the mobile main page, and adding Categorty:Games on the wiki navigation under Media? Since it is new, it's recommended we get that put out there on the front lines if possible.
Awesome! Thanks for doing that. Would you also be okay if it was added on the mobile main page and on the wiki navigation? It does require admin rights, so I can ask another admin to do so if you are open to it.
I'm Lucas with the Fandom Anime Team and I'm reaching out to invite you to the official Fandom/Gamepedia Discord server. If you're not a member already, this server is a great place to get rapid responses from Fandom staff members if you ever run into any issues or have any questions about the platform. There are also a number of Admins from dozens of anime focused communities on the server if you ever want to reach out to them for insight or collaboration.
You can follow this link to join the server if you'd like to. If you do join, please mark yourself as a member of the Anime community in the roles channel and introduce yourself in the Anime channel. Thanks and I hope you have a great day!
Hey! Jadium here and I am checking to see how things are doing for you and the community. Has anything in particular come up that needs attention or any type of request that you would like looked into? A note that you may inquire anything related to staff assistance.
I hope things are doing okay and I am happy to help or just listen to feedback!
The rename image feature is very inconsistent in how it works. You have the options to rename the image without updating its name on any pages it is currently on, rename the image and update its name on any pages it is currently on or put it into a queue of images to be renamed and have their names updated on subsequent pages.
This would be fine if any of these options actually worked consistently. If you want to rename an image and update its name on the pages it is currently on most of the time it takes a very long time to finish doing that or just doesn't do it at all. Using the queue is even worse since you can maybe use it to upload a handful of images once but then if you try again all the images fail because of being "rate limited" or having an "invalid/bad token".
There is also sometimes where the upload goes through with the rename and update option but it doesn't update the filename on one or more of the pages that the image was on for no reason at all.
And as for the straight rename option, that one is the most consistent I've found but then you have to go an manually change all the names to the new filename on whatever pages that image appeared on which is pointless extra work. And still that sometimes just doesn't even work when you press the button to rename.
Hey! Thanks for reaching out! So that is a volunteer provided script over on the Dev Wiki. It is the FileUsageAuto-update script. As such, it is not an official Fandom feature so those scripts can run into errors from time to time if they aren't actively supported.
Luckily, another wiki manager has contributed to the code of the script. I can reach out to them and see what problems may be occurring. I may have to check back for more specifications and possibly console errors. I'll let you know what I find out.
Thank you for the reply. I didn't know it was a volunteer provided script, so sorry for that. I'm very new to all this.
You can ask me or Vibhav, since he also has been having problems with it, about any other specifics you need clarified. I don't mind helping in the slightest if it means getting it working consistently, thank you again!
Not a problem! So I did check around and the invalid token is not uncommon to experience on any script being used. It is basically a hiccup in the processing, but I believe it only occurs when the tab is idle for a long period of time, or else the queue is too large.
The actual code of the script is good and should be working. May I ask how many images you are attempting to use with the script, and roughly how many page updates are tied to it? Likely, it is the quantity of requests that is causing it to hiccup more often, but I'll keep looking into this.
Well when using the queue to update multiple images the most I've ever gotten to work in one use is 5. And that would be around 10-15 page updates for that one use of the queue. Since my last comment I've been using it more and 2-3 images in the queue with 10 or less page updates seems to work semi-consistently.
With the "Rename and Update" button I would obviously be doing one at a time but trying to do multiple in quick succession and it would either take a very long time for it to go through or it just wouldn't go through at all. And sometimes when it did go through it would arbitrarly not update the image on one or more of the pages it was on.
Right so clearing my cache didn't seem to change anything. The queue and "Rename and Update" button still work the same as before. And after trying on a different browser it doesn't seem any different over there either.
That seemed to help a little? I've found a sort of work-around since my last message anyway that works pretty well, so even if I can't use the queue properly I don't particularly mind. Thanks for the help!
You are able to change the delay to any second(s) you'd prefer as well. Changing it to 1000 delay, would be a one second delay and so forth.
What was the workaround you found by the way? That is good to hear you figured something out. I'm sorry I wasn't able to do much, when it comes to a volunteer provided script, it is hard to track down support for it.
It isn't really much of a work-around, I just couldn't think of a better word. But just renaming the file and replacing it on subsequent pages actually goes faster than renaming and updating or using the queue. So I just do that instead. It becomes a hassle if the image is on a lot of pages but if it's on 3 or less it's not really a big deal.
That's alright. I wasn't expecting there to be much help on the subject anyway, I did think from the beginning that it would be something that just can't beremedied. Thank you for your help nonetheless.
I understand. I do still want to dig around on this and actually find a proper solution. I believe the script is intended for moderate queues, and if the queue is something like... over 100 article pages per image that needs updated, then it is possible it can't handle it. I appreciate your willingness to compromise and use an alternative for the time being. Until then, I am going to continue looking into this.
The wikis comments have been disabled, yes. It was decided through a majority "vote" between the staff and some active contributors in the wiki channel in the discord server. The comments served virtually no purpose and were only ever used for negative things or generally meaningless things. And talk pages still exist.
This is most disappointing. I do hope you and all the other administrators and staff set up a meeting to vote in restoring the comments. Because sure people have post negative comments, but you should give them one warning and one warning only to the user who post the negative comment. If they still press on, you should block them for a year or for life.
I don't really have any say in it. But I don't think they will be re-enabled anytime soon. As far as I can remember pretty much all the admins, or at least all the active admins, agreed on disabling them.
Is there an issue with them? They aren't forced edits, but there was a foundation in place with adding the Fair use template on images. Since Special:Uncategorizedimages is full in the thousands, I was assisting in clearing that out.
If the edits are not wanted, I can cease. Nothing I do is a requirement. My goal at the moment is to help clear the maintenance pages down.
Upon doing research of how images were categorized here, I came across that former administrator Bereisgreat added the fair use templates to images. I picked up that process since it was done by an administrator so Special:Uncategorizedimages could be cleaned up. :P
