Administration Discussion

Greetings, it has come to my attention that we have a lot of chat moderators that don't even attend the chat anymore. Not sure what you guys think, (hence the discussion). But, I think we should perhaps remove the rights of those who don't attend chat anymore. Not lapsing due to inactivity, just not attending anymore.

Let me know what you think via my talkpage

New category

Hey,

Would i be wrong in creating the Category "Loony toons"?

We should at some point start a fourum up to talk with other users about adding and removing category's in my opinion.

Thanks and happy editing.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 17:37, June 20, 2013 (UTC)

  • Ill double check the spelling and start filling the category, thank.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 17:45, June 20, 2013 (UTC)

RfA

I have nominated someone for administration rights earlier today, it's all been supports. As a result, I was wondering if I could close it early. (Early being today).

Admin request rules

Hey, Since i would count you as the boss here, i thought i should run this idea by you first.

Im seeing users nominate themselves for admin, while some of them may be good for the job, im thinking we need to set up some sort of rules for admin roles.

Im dont think it needs to be a massive thing, just some rules set in place to thin out request from less then desirable nominee's. The biggest of these i would say is people cant manatee themselves. Your work should speak for you, you shouldn't have to staff members should have to tell people they can do it, they should beable to tell by how you act and contribute.

This is something i really feel the wiki needs to talk about, more then my other ideas have thrown out.

Thanks and happy editing.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 06:35, July 6, 2013 (UTC)

Quesion about question

Hey,

The question about Henry the seventh, the one i marked as i was unsure. If i may ask, as to get a better understanding, how would we tell the difference between a spam question, asked only to add to the workload and not out of knowledge, and a real question? Asking what color a long dead king preferred is asking us something nobody would know, we would need a document from the time that said "i prefer...".

In short, om just trying to understand why that wasn't junk.

Thanks and happy editing.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 05:46, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

Transferring rights to TheOriginalCrumpet

Hello, I ShadowLurker343 would like my rights as Administrator to be passed onto the above account and removed from ShadowLurker343.

Thanks,

Hi. It appears I may have read your mind. Whilst requesting a page to be deleted, it got deleted for the same reason as the one I was trying to get it deleted. Bit of a wacky coincidence, but I thougt you might like to know. Helen Theplait (talk) 16:47, July 31, 2013 (UTC)

Apologies

Blacklisting starting letters

I was wondering if we should blacklist some starting letters. For an example, the letter J doesn't have any questions and most of it are redirects or homework. Thanks, Jr Mime Talk to me! | MuudyBot!

Two things to be added to your bot

Hello there, two sub categories have recently been made and I thought you should know so you could add them to your bot.

  • Bon Jovi (Bands)
  • Nicki Manaj (Singers)

Thanks and have a nice day,

Is they're a noun pronoun or verb

Hi I am not me. That page is a grammar question. AKA homework. So why are you putting it blank instead of deleting it?Wolf ScreechUser Vibroblade negwt(That's a knife!) 15:33, September 24, 2013 (UTC)

We have specific guidelines about what constitutes a homework question. Unless it is written in a way that it can't be anything else or it exactly matches one from a homework assignment when you search for it on Google, we generally allow it. I am not me (talk) 15:35, September 24, 2013 (UTC)


Ditloids

Hi I am not me. Do you think we should move all ditloids to What does the ditloid "7 = F F F F" stand for? It would be more precise and less confusing sometimes. Jr Mime Talk to me! | MuudyBot!

You mean wrap the ditloid in quotes? Yeah, we could do that. Though I usually prefer to forget that ditloids even exist, so they don't bother me as-is :). I am not me (talk) 23:30, October 5, 2013 (UTC)
I'll move them. After that, we don't need to touch them anymore! :p. Jr Mime Talk to me! | MuudyBot!

Possible need of Bot

Hey, its been awhile.

Anyway, if there a way to get a bot to start adding questions involving God to the "God" category? Any question involving God isnt in that category. Im assuming there may be a reason, i just wanted to run it by you just in case.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 06:42, October 7, 2013 (UTC)

I need to add it to QuestionCatBot to do it properly. The category is meant to refer to a monotheistic entity, not a member of a pantheon, so I have to exclude things like "Greek god, Roman god, Mayan god, etc..." I also want to exclude questions that refer to a particular group's brand of God, such as Judaism and Christianity. In other words, it's complicated and requires a lot of forethought to set up a bot to do it. I am not me (talk) 06:51, October 7, 2013 (UTC)
Since you put it that way, the game "God of war" should be considered as well, we wouldn't want to mix those two together. Its alot more complicated then i thought it would be. Thanks for replying and happy editing.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 20:39, October 7, 2013 (UTC)

Fixing a script

Hi I am not me, would you mind giving me admin rights again really quick to investigate why the IsQuestion script still isn't loading correctly? Thanks! — Foodbandlt (talk) 18:33, October 17, 2013 (UTC)

Also uh... is this question appropriate for this wiki? — Foodbandlt (talk) 18:36, October 17, 2013 (UTC)
I've given you the extra rights you should need. The question can probably be reworded, but as long as it isn't asking about where to get pornography or about the production of porn, we generally leave them. They're tracked in the Pornography so they can be monitored easily. I am not me (talk) 20:14, October 17, 2013 (UTC)

Re:Pokemon Answers

I like the idea of it, and with this, we three could all have bureaucrat rights. However, my internet will be down for about a week or less. Is it okay if I request the rights once it's back so I'll be able to edit full-time? Thanks again! --•• + DeviantSerpent 08:33, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

I'm back from the short absence. So, how do you suggest I request these rights? Usually I'd straight-up post an adoption request, but I don't think I'm able to do that with active admins on the wiki. --•• + DeviantSerpent 03:51, November 7, 2013 (UTC)

Test article

Hey,

I was thinking about the Bruce Willis article you made and i marked. Thinking back, was i not supposed to mark that? I thought about it and realized that it could have been a test for the bots and i didn't need to worry about it.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 23:57, November 18, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Suggestion Suggestion

I was thinking about having a bot (or at least placing this function on another bot) that finds and corrects game titles in questions. For example, it would find "thesims2", "sims2", "sims 2", and various other phrases and replace it with the fully correct "The Sims 2". I could set up many different games and expand it as I go. This would also have use on Wikianswers Xbox. Let me know what you think. AppleJon - Talk - DPL -Contribs 13:43, November 23, 2013 (UTC)

Rollback rights

Whats our goal?

Hey, what is our goal of answered questions before we restore the ability to ask questions?-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 23:19, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

Our current goal is 28% answered (rounded down). If the number drops below 27.5% again, the site will be relocked until it reaches 28.5% and so on, and so on. Unofficially, I'd also like to get the total number of questions on the site down to 800,000 or less, although our goal isn't deleting questions per se (I just know that a lot still can be deleted or redirected). I am not me (talk) 03:13, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

Copyright?

What are our rules for plagiarism? Im assuming it isnt allowed without souring the information, but ive never seen it here.

How much money do doctors make a year is openly copied from here and while i think its wrong to do this, i wanted to make sure.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 20:30, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

Inactivity

Hello IANM,

Obviously I've been inactive here lately--I've been having on-and-off again internet troubles. I'm just writing to say after digging through my emails, I got another reply from Wikia about the adoption of the Pokémon Answers wiki. Apparently, creating an adoption request is going to be the only way for us to get bureaucrat rights on the wiki.

I'm not aware if you or Jr Mime have already started an adoption or another process to get the rights on the wiki--but if anything, I think we should all join in on the adoption. I'll start editing the wiki again so we can get back on track though!

Sincerely, --•• + DeviantSerpent 10:51, January 19, 2014 (UTC)

Chat

Hey, its been to long.

Anyway, I was hoping you might have some understanding of the chat rooms wiki's have, more directly the safeties they might put in place to prevent certain behaviors.

I know this wiki have blocks in place to prevent profanity, do we have that in this chat, and how can you add that to a chat to clean things up.

The elder scroll chat has been losing control, I cant be in there all the time, but we need ways to keep things in line when leaders are away or not responding.

Hope all is good, thanks and happy editing.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 22:20, March 11, 2014 (UTC)

I will pass it along, Its up to the admins there if they want to try it, but we don't have to many ideas right now on what to do other then have more of us in there more often, and that doesn't always fix a problem. Thanks.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 04:27, March 12, 2014 (UTC)

Message Wall Feature Enable

Well I am not me, this is Lieutenant Allen. On the wiki features you see Message Wall section and enable it, because talk page have signatures and I don't need to look at that.

On this wiki, I'd like to see the Message Wall enabled to leave them a message instead of typing in sources section and edit it. It's shown in the users who left a message on user's wall on the current time without signatures.

--Lieutenant Allen (talk) 21:22 CDT, March 13th, 2014 (UTC)

I'm well aware of what the Message Wall is and how to enable it, and if anyone who actually edited this wiki wanted it enabled, I probably would have done so already. 02:33, March 14, 2014 (UTC)

Your name

What is "I am not me" means your username don't have the name there, so I better call "I am not me" instead of this works well. Also check user rights means users are detected to be checked as well. --Lt. Allen talk 01:41, July 17, 2014 (UTC)

Transferring rights

Yo. Since you're online right now, could you flag my new bot (User:ChuChuBot)? I can't use my previous bot anymore as I disabled it during my break, so I don't have anything else to use when performing batch deletions. Thank you, chuua 13:55, July 22, 2014 (UTC)

Standards for Answering Duplicate Questions

This has always confused me--what exactly do we do with identical questions that were asked by different users? Generally I would try answering them both while modifying the answers a bit so they both wouldn't seem exactly the same.

I was going through Category:Celebi just now to answer what I could, and I noticed a lot of unanswered (and some answered) questions have some vexed formatting, such as How do I catch Celebi* in Pokémon - as you can see from the link, it contains an unnecessary asterisk which is difficult to remove as the preferred page name already exists.

How do you suggest we fix these issues? Do we delete the page, redirect it, or just leave it be? I always assumed they should be redirected but was afraid I may remove other users' work. chuua 22:03, July 24, 2014 (UTC)

Usually they should be redirected. If both questions are answered, and the answers are the same or the duplicate is inferior, it's no problem to remove it and redirect it. If the answer in the duplicate is better, you can move the duplicate to overwrite the original and then restore the revisions in the page history so both people get credit. I am not me (talk) 22:08, July 24, 2014 (UTC)
That was fast. Thanks for the clarification! I'll remember this when performing any actions on questions considered duplicates. Off-topic once again, but am I allowed my admin rights back on the remaining answer wikis I once held rights on considering I removed them myself, or do I have to contest them back? Thanks again, chuua 22:19, July 24, 2014 (UTC)
I can add them back. It'll just take a few minutes. I am not me (talk) 22:20, July 24, 2014 (UTC)
There doesn't need to be any hurry, I'm patient. Thanks! chuua 22:41, July 24, 2014 (UTC)

Questions answered

I answered my own questions, but why you've deleted it? --Lt. Allen talk 04:13, August 16, 2014 (UTC)

You know full well why I deleted it. First, that was not an answer, but a repeat of the question. Second, as it says right above the answer box, Do not ask questions you already know the answer to. I am not me (talk) 04:16, August 16, 2014 (UTC)
I did know questions, and you should answer it on your own and change what I've got the answer! --Lt. Allen talk 16:15, August 18, 2014 (UTC)
No I shouldn't. Leaving the answer field blank is how "answered" and "un-answered" questions are distinguished between. If you cannot follow basic instructions, I suggest you use another answer site. I am not me (talk) 18:42, August 18, 2014 (UTC)

QuestionCatBot issue

Not sure why this edit is being categorized under "Sableye", as that's a Pokémon. Also a couple other pages were added to it which I removed. – Ozuzanna 11:52, August 21, 2014 (UTC)
