Hey Brandon. What's up with the new Insights thing on the side of the Wiki Activity? I can't seem to find anything about it on community central. Is it a new feature?
IMHO, we don't particularly need to be pointing out pages without images or links, and the wanted pages is pretty user specific (i.e. I'm not going to create a page that some other user's fanon links to). I'm just curious if there are better, more SWF oriented things we could use that for instead.
Ah, thanks for the link. As for fanon wiki special pages, I'm not sure. Wanted categories might be a good one, as multiple users might be using the same redlink categories. Beyond that, I guess I'm not sure. There doesn't seem to be very many fanon specific ones.
Insights is a work in progress, so the ones currently there are just a starting point. If there are others you think would be useful then you could share that feedback at Special:Contact. That way it goes to the person overseeing Insights.
Unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with the subject matter in order to determine if this is a direct crossover from one universe to another, or if this is just something that takes heavy inspiration/names from another universe.
It's a thin line between a knockoff and a crossover. For example, I could name a character Mickey Mouse, but that doesn't automatically mean it's a crossover. To be a crossover, it would have to be the actual Mickey Mouse, entering into the Star Wars universe/storyline.
I know you're probably busy, but if you'd like to grace the Wiki Awards voting page with your presence, we would appreciate it, Bac Almighty. Especially because of all the tiebreakers we currently have in several categories. :)
General Bac. Years ago you served my father in the Wiki Awards. Now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Tied Categories. I regret that I am unable to convey my father's request to you in person, but my ship has fallen under attack, and I'm afraid my mission to bring you to Alderaan has failed. I have placed information vital to the survival of the Wiki Awards into the memory systems of this message wall. My father will know how to retrieve it. You must see this safely delivered to him on Alderaan. This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Brandon Rhea. You're my only hope.
I kind of feel like striking your vote in the Non-Force Users category for making a new tie, but I'm worried if I strike you down you'll become more powerful than I can possibly imagine. Seriously, though, thanks for voting!
Hi, so I was thinking of possibly joining SWRP but I wasn't sure if I was overstepping on privacy (I like to give people their space and not feel like I am following them everywhere to the point of suffocation) and if I did join I wouldn't want to have a character for a month only to see the timeline change. So I guess I am asking if it's aight and, I guess, if the timeline will be ending very soon (if it is then I might just wait--also I am aware you don't want to talk about the new timeline, so I am sorry about a question regarding it. XD).
This user, claiming to be this user, has been reverting Typhuss and my edits all day. Regardless of whether he is the aforementioned user, his page content is in poor taste. I will leave it alone for you to decide.
If currentbigthing may act absolutely terrible on his "rant" and disgrace of a user page, so can I. It's my user page, and no one sees it either way so you really have better things to do than worry about a user from 2011 who never comes here anymore.
Lose the condescension. Your page's content shamelessly attacks another user, which is a violation of the Participation Guidelines, not to mention the tasteless Ebola references. If you don't want to take it from me, I'm sure Brandon here will show you the error of your ways.
I know neither you nor the user you are referencing. What I do know is that your page content violates policy, and that is only issue I have with you. If another user has harassed you in some way, speak to an admin or confront the user yourself.
Policy? No one even cares about that userpage and it's probable that no one sees it again. It doesn't hurt YOU to see it, so worry about your own business. If this user has a problem, he should contact me.
This user has engaged in an edit war over my good faith category removal edits of this article. Normally I would balk at alerting you of such a problem as I know you are busy with wikia matters, but this user is more resistant than most when being told about policy pertaining to legal edits and may be a sign leading toward refusal to acknowledge policy. I don't want to jump to conclusions though. Perhaps a voice from an authority on this wiki will help them see the fact and help them avoid future edit wars and adhere further to site rules and guidelines.
It doesn't really matter to me how many categories someone puts on their page, to be honest. We don't have any rules about that. Both of your points of view are perfectly valid. ITCO is right in that a lot of the categories are redundant. Typhuss999 would also be right in saying, though, that categories are for searchability and navigation, and more categories means it's more likely people can find and read the page.
This doesn't need admin intervention - I'm sure you two can figure this out.
I would just like to say there apparently was fanon stealing of some sort or the above user put their fanon on another article, took it out and put in this article, because the content shows up in google search results of another article (Albeit said content is not on the original article now). I notified the user and I am sure this will be resolved on their page.
Also, I know the category guideline was gone, but the editing policy allowed constructive, good faith edits and edit warring is still not allowed. I wasn't really reporting the category part moreso that other stuff. Anyway, right. Sorry.
You are talking about user Trainferry88, he has his own wiki called Jedi Archives Wiki. He stole my fanon, CC-2009, on his wiki he made CC-2079, named him Typhuss with a different number 2079 and changed 2009 to 2079. 2079's unit is the 52nd Sky Corps, which is 52nd Star Corps, he changed Star to Sky.
He also stole CT-6/988, Skyes but changed the number to CC-1376 and used the same name Skyes on his page on his wiki.
