Forum:Changing SmashWikia's identity

Jump to navigationJump to search

I'm going to try and see what happens if we try to change what SmashWikia is (e.g. a parody wiki or a fanon wiki). Then anyone who wants the real info will come here while the other guys can go there. Please comment here. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Undirigible 12:34, 23 March 2011 (EDT)

I think you might need to explain a point to the wikia why we should remain a normal wiki and why they should change to a parody of fanon wiki, chances are they might think that we should change into the parody or fanon wiki.--Shaun's Wiji Dodo talk Untitled-1 copy.gif 12:39, 23 March 2011 (EDT)
I still say everyone on this Wiki goes there to support turning it into a fanon Wiki. How can the staff refuse us if all overwhelmingly agree to turn it into a fanon Wiki? It's better than leaving things as is, with that Wiki becoming vandal hell and incompetent users trying to take over the Wiki, getting the staff involved.

If we do win, who will change the wikia into a smash fanon wiki? There isn't enough users with enough experience already to stop vandals.--Shaun's Wiji Dodo talk Untitled-1 copy.gif 17:05, 23 March 2011 (EDT)
Uhm, me, Toomai, and Mega will still be there to deal with vandalism. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 17:07, 23 March 2011 (EDT)
The vandalism isn't a problem it's if the wikia decides to change into a smash fanon wiki who will change it?--Shaun's Wiji Dodo talk Untitled-1 copy.gif 17:11, 23 March 2011 (EDT)
We don't need Wikia to decide for us, we decide ourselves. And we'll be the one to make the switch and get things started. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 17:19, 23 March 2011 (EDT)

it's probley the best move--kyle.b talk KirbyHeadSSBB.png 10:53, 24 March 2011 (EDT)

Wikia know that we have all moved away. They will not listen to you and will revert any changes you make on changing it to a parody wiki, unless you do them on the sly. Wikia will probably just ban you for trying to "ruin the wiki" or something. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 15:22, 24 March 2011 (EDT)
Regardless of whether you think it would work or not, mention your support for turning it into a fanon Wiki on the forum there. The larger the consensus appears there, the better. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 17:00, 24 March 2011 (EDT)
I'll have to do it as an IP then but I will do. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 17:38, 24 March 2011 (EDT)
Yeah, I was about to say you could use a sock puppet considering your anti Wikia history. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 17:47, 24 March 2011 (EDT)

It is very hard to stay civil sometimes. Miles (talk) 17:53, 24 March 2011 (EDT)

Same staff member removed my rights "for abusing my power" and gave me a month block after Slipknot Darkrai apparently reported me for giving him a three day block for removing content. Each time DaNASCAT been asked how I abused my power and to show proof, he has ignored. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 18:01, 24 March 2011 (EDT)
I had my admin rights removed by Sannse for joking. We were discussing changing the name for the Wikia Simpsons Wiki to differ from Wikisimpsons and I suggested changing to SimpWiki as that would mean it would be less searched for. I then had no admin rights... ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 18:04, 24 March 2011 (EDT)
I would also like to support in any way I can. However, I do agree with everyone else that is going to be a tough task. All we can do is keep piling the supporters.-Ivy73002MS.png 18:23, 24 March 2011 (EDT)
Go on SmashWikia and mention your support. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 18:32, 24 March 2011 (EDT)

people are mostly going to smash wikia instead of here, i have not seen one person without an account here--kyle.b talk KirbyHeadSSBB.png 08:16, 25 March 2011 (EDT)

One time IPs edit there more often as they're often not aware of the move, but they do edit here as well. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 15:41, 25 March 2011 (EDT)

I support. Unfortunately, since OT banned me from wikia, i can't post my support. Zeldasmash (talk) 13:24, 25 March 2011 (EDT)

Create a sockpuppet or support as an IP. If it passes, I will ask Toomai to remove your block. But removing your block now for you to support would look bad. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 15:41, 25 March 2011 (EDT)

So apparently, Wikia can force unwanted ads on all of its wikis without them being allowed to do something, but they are free to veto even a notice that a "competitor" wiki with 99+% of the activity even exists? Miles (talk) 13:47, 25 March 2011 (EDT)

Apparently. Isn't that the reason why we moved here in the first place? --Spenstar (talk) 17:13, 28 March 2011 (EDT)

The move was due to several factors, though Wikia's oppression and forcing unwanted things upon its Wikis can be cited as the primary reason. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 17:15, 28 March 2011 (EDT)

I support the change and I support Miles. I can't believe what daNASCAT is doing. Doomolish (talk) 22:40, 3 April 2011 (EDT)

Power abusive users from outside the Wiki having more power than the admins and bureaucrats the community chose is a major reason why we left Wikia. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 03:30, 4 April 2011 (EDT)

how can someone who just showed up have more power than an admin or buerocrat--kyle.b talk KirbyHeadSSBB.png 10:58, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

Because that is the way Wikia works, it doesn't want the communities of their Wikis actually running the Wikis. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 11:01, 5 April 2011 (EDT)
Because he works for Wikia, or at least is studying to be a worker for Wikia. This was one of the issues that started talk of a move in the first place.--Shaun's Wiji Dodo talk Untitled-1 copy.gif 11:13, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

so its pretty much a free for all over there?--kyle.b talk KirbyHeadSSBB.png 12:14, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

Nah, more of a dictator-like situation, and the dictator has lost all his followers.--Shaun's Wiji Dodo talk Untitled-1 copy.gif 12:18, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

gone mad without power--kyle.b talk KirbyHeadSSBB.png 12:28, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

So does this mean there won't be a fanon wiki after all? --Spenstar (talk) 16:56, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

Not sure, Wikia won't let go. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 16:57, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

There is actually a Super Smash Bros. Fanon wiki on Wikia. SeanWheeler (talk) 19:37, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

great, another setback--kyle.b talk KirbyHeadSSBB.png 10:56, 6 April 2011 (EDT)

so what do we do now?--kyle.b talk KirbyHeadSSBB.png 11:45, 8 April 2011 (EDT)
Well, I left a long message on DaNASCAT's talk page (I'm My name is Blade btw) in the hopes of changing his way with things. I doubt it will work though but worth a try and worth getting that off my chest. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 04:37, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
