Recently, I've seen more and more spam and other guideline violations, and with the only Discussion Mod relatively inactive on the discussion side of this wiki, I think we need a new additional mod. Now, I'm not asking for me to become a mod, considering that I haven't made many edits, and have barely any posts, not to mention that I've only been here for a few months, but I'm asking if we as a community could elect a new one in, someone who has shown they know and understand the guidelines, replies frequently and is responsible and all-around active. If you feel this is unneeded, that's fine. This is merely a suggestion, but I thank you for at least reading this.
@Necor Yeah, I noticed he went inactive about at the time those guys were petitioning to ban him.
@Sxerks Just checking in. Do you have any updates on this? Fandyllic's been gone for quite a long time now. I really think the community should elect a new one. In addition to my earlier statements, I'd like to add that I'd be perfectly happy doing this job if need be. I'm pretty active here, and have a little bit of experience with this kind of thing, so... yeah. An answer soon would be nice, although I know you have a life beyond this, so I will be as patient as needed. Thanks again!
Well, I suppose that I see how that makes sense. Although I do have to say that having an active mod at all times is probably a good idea. But yeah, I won't try to convince you more.
But anyways, this wiki's discussions are mostly just "reccomend me anime" or "I need some manga to read" and I want to increase the engagement of the community! So I've been trying to figure out how to make this place a bit more engaged in conversation. This happened a little bit more when the mod posted news to disscus, but when he left we as a community sorta stopped talking about stuff other than anime reccomendations. I want this place to be like the other big wikis, where there's a ton of discussion all the time. I know it's not my job, but I sorta want to makes this place a bit more lively. If there are any ways you think I could help in doing this, I'd love to hear them.
The very basic problem this discussion is people too fanboy/girling over their fav. anime's. That basically puts an end to a competent, enjoyable and proper conversation. Another problem is inexperience of many users, in - a shit ton of stuff -. Last but not least would be Bia.
But sadly, it's incredibly hard to solve any of those problems manually, and I'm lazy, so, sorry, and have fun Spidey.
We, that is, me and the other people, have screenshotted everything that has happened. If you need those for proof that Fandyllic has scolded us for liking what we want to like, has been rude to us and said that we were trolling even though all we said was one thing, and that he deleted several of our comments pointing out that we never actually trolled, then I'll have everyone upload everything. A while back, some people were trying to get Fandyllic banned, and I stood up for him, and eventually everyone stopped. I now see why they wanted him banned or at least not a mod anymore, and I also see that I made a mistake standing up for him. I'm sure a lot of people can vouch for the fact that he is outright rude. I want this place to be welcome to everyone, and have expressed so in the past, and this mod has been outright rude, causing people to not feel welcome. Even in that thread, unless he deletes them, you can see that he was being rude.
It is fine to like what you like, but not if it is completely off topic. 99% of that thread was off topic. The OP made a poll about English language vs. Japanese language anime. Please explain how most of that thread was related to the OP's poll or even the topics of this wiki in general?
@HostessSpidey: As you noticed, I did not view your "support" in the earlier conflict as helpful since you used a bunch of profanity and weren't constructive at all. You're lucky I didn't ask for you to be blocked (probably only for a short time, though), because there was more than enough evidence.
I really do hope Sxerks' looks into this, because I stand by my positions and if he agrees with you, that's fine. I will view it as a fair judgement. I will accept demotion or whatever is decided.
the deleting files part, because there are a lot of minor red links, duplicate files, and unused redirects to clean up. I'm saying if nobody here is going to perform the janitor's duty, let me be please?
There are 208 Special:UnusedFiles, most could be deleted, some are site images and others added by the Staff. I'm not sure if any are duplicate.
Special:BrokenRedirects and Special:DoubleRedirects don't seem to have much in them, nothing that needs to be deleted anyway. And in general we want redirects so people don't make duplicate articles based on spelling or translations.
