Welcome, Kenji Hiroshi, to Star Wars Fanon, the Star Wars wiki of fan invention!

As a community, we strive to maintain a fun and creative atmosphere for all users while also maintaining a sense of encyclopedic quality that we can show off and be proud of. The best way to help with that is for you, our newest valued user, to begin creatively expressing yourself with your article writing, and to get involved with the community! Need some help with your writing? We're here to offer that help in the Writing Center! The Senate Hall can also be used for asking about anything relating to Star Wars Fanon, including help in following our policies.

You're probably saying, "How can I get involved?" There are a number of ways that you can do that, which are all listed below, so we encourage you to check those out! Very importantly, there are also a number of policies that you will need to be cognizant of and agree to follow so you can have the best time possible, and to help make our great wiki even greater!

Star Wars Fanon is not about administrators, nor is it about the people who have been given accolades or awards. This wiki is about you, the community member and the valued writer. So long as a sense of encyclopedic standard is maintained, this wiki will continue to be the absolute best it can be, especially once you get involved in our community!

Joining the communityEdit

Hey Kenji Hiroshi! Sorry if this added message seems a bit overwhelming after the huge welcome message you just received, but what I wanted to say is important enough to re-emphasize it here. I wanted to make sure you were as aware as possible of the fantastic community we have here on the wiki. There is literally so much to do beyond just working on your own articles. I definitely don't want to sound like I'm suggesting you shouldn't work on your own articles, but there's a larger community out there too and we'd all love for you to get involved! If you have any questions about the community, which I strongly encourage you to participate in, don't hesitate to ask me. Thanks, and once again welcome to Star Wars Fanon! – -- Trak Nar (Talk) 09:54, April 15, 2013

Re: Question Edit

Hi there. I'm also a Wikia Staff member, so I can answer this question fairly well. First I want to clear up a misconception: we would never pull support from a community for choosing to disable anonymous editors. Our job is to support communities, so that's not something we'd do.

Now, I'd ask this question: have you considered methods other than disabling anonymous editors? For example, if there's a particular kind of spam or vandalism, what you could do is set up an abuse filter that could prevent people from making those kinds of edits and even block their IP addresses. You could also give more users rollback rights so they can assist in reverting vandalism. We also have a Volunteer Spam Task Force (VSTF) whom you can approach for help about dealing with spam and vandalism. If you want to try the abuse filter, you can request that at Special:Contact.

So while we can disabling anonymous editing (if you send that blog to Special:Contact), I would encourage you to use that only as a last resort. I would look into whether abuse filter is the right fit for your community, that way people who do want to edit anonymously may do so. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions about this! - Brandon Rhea@Wikia(talk) 15:20, March 12, 2014 (UTC)

  • In layman's terms, abuse filter is basically a bot (short for robot) that does what you tell it to do. In this case, it's given instructions about what kinds of potentially bad edits to watch out for. If it detects an edit like that, it can block the IP and prevent the user from doing anything else (though their initial edit or so may still need to be reverted by hand). This requires some knowledge of coding, so you can always seek help in the Community Central Forum. - Brandon Rhea@Wikia(talk) 16:29, March 12, 2014 (UTC)
