Vandalism

Hey, to be able to revert mass vandalism more quickly, you can place

importScriptPage('User:Joeyaa/wham.js', 'vstf');

to User:Thayvian/wikia.js, which allows you delete or rollback an user's contributions in a click. Cheers! TK-999 09:49, April 29, 2012 (UTC)


Making a bulk donation

We at the Tropes Mirror Wikia want to make a bulk donation of all the Rape Trope pages we could find.

They were saved before the "curtain" was dropped when Google insisted on their removal, and I cannot guarantee they have not already been somewhat censored and they will need formatting, but I just thought I'd make an administrator aware just in case anyone wondered why I submitted a bunch of pages to your wiki in one large burst.

I am not sure what formatting practices you have enacted or wish to practice, so I am merely submitting raw source material for your use.

My colleague at the same wiki has edited some of those pages for your use with the appropriate spoiler tags and formatting, so as to better aid your user base in know how to recast these pages in Mediawiki format, and has redirected site links to our own wiki, which is in the process of attempting to be an alternative of TV Tropes.

My colleauge User: Anime Addict was the one who linked everything to our wiki, so if it is your policy not to link to us (since we stil do not have fully functioning links to most of the content), feel free to reconvert those links to TV Tropes if need be, but please, be advised we cannot guarantee some of those links will not be taken down, given how some works and even trope pages are being removed for Content Violations issues under their new policies, paticularly many items in the Anime, Manga, Literature, Videogame, and Webcomic sections of some of the pages we submitted.

If any of your wikia patrons wish to contribute to our site, we would welcome it, but if not, we understand and hope our donation assisted your own Wikia, and we both wish you well on your site goals.

Thanks, let's keep the discussion at Talk:Meta:Community Portal. Thayvian 02:56, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Design Help

Hi There, I just wanted to stop by and ask if your wiki would be interested in design help from our ComDev team. I know this wiki is pretty active, but you don't seem to have a custom background. If you are interested, please let me know. I love that this wiki is on Wikia and would love to help update the look a bit. Thanks! Sarah (help forum | blog) 17:51, March 5, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the greeting!

I'm doing fine -- I've actually made several previous (minor) edits, I just apparently wasn't logged in at the time. So i'm not exactly "new". I've been following, linking to, and otherwise keeping track of the GF Wiki (and the GF blog) for a long time now!

Hi Thayvian!

My name is Ariana- I'm on the community development team over here at Wikia. I came across your wiki and love the idea behind it! I am wondering if you and the other wiki admins might be open to having our team redesign the main page? (We would create an original background, wordmark, title headers, add videos, and more). 

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns!

All the best,

Just a heads up

I just wanted to give you a heads up:

http://i.imgur.com/QxvBQgW.jpg

I'm not sure the way your admin handled this situation was optimal, I checked the ip page for the blocked user (expecting to find they made other edits and had earned the ban(as is usual in these "omg the feminists b&ned me!!!!" posts), and no other edits were made to justify a sharp response for a one word edit.

The admin then lied about the reasoning for the ban in the subsequent bans, If you look at the user pages, their only edit doesn't constitute gibberish/nonsense in the first one, and doesn't constitute harassment/intimidation in the second one.

I'm only here because I run a few sites, and if any of my charges was acting this way (Mainly the lying in ban reason part), I'd want to know.

Ball's in your court to do or not do what you want, I'm just the messenger. 192.184.88.147 04:57, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Their edit seems to have the most high-handed edit summary of all time. "Let us not be too presumptious"? And generally editing "men" to "people" is a bit of a red flag on this wiki, there's quite a lot of attempts to turn it into the "how to be nice to people in a totally genderless context" wiki and that's a major symptom. (There's probably a few places where there are exceptions, but it would be a Talk level discussion.)
In summary: yeah, Monadic's adminning here is well within our norms. Thayvian (talk) 23:51, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Possible administrative issue

I think you should probably look at User:Monadic's actions considering he has been permanently banning a lot of IP addresses for unstated or extremely minor reasons without discussion or a method of appeal. While not explicitly against any rules, it could be harmful to the wiki in the long run and at least warrants a discussion. I posted my opinions on the matter on his talk page and also on an unlisted Pastebin. Due to the privacy concerns of my job, this account is anonymized through Tor and I won't be posting here again. - 85.93.218.204 20:58, November 5, 2013 (UTC)

Rape culture edit

Hello,

I noticed that you reverted my edit of rape culture.  Even though women are more likely to be raped outside of prison, men are more likely to be raped in prison.  This also includes childhood sexual abuse.

While women live in greater fear of rape otherwise, men live in greater fear of other acts of violence, including general assault and homicide.  From how this article is written, it creates a false power balance ignoring this reality.

Thanks,

Example moderation policy noodling

Hi, I've been poking around at the stuff in http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/User:Azurelunatic/Example_comment_moderation_strategies for a while, and thought it might benefit from a few more eyes before thinking about turning it into an actual page. If you have a few minutes to look, I'd be delighted.

Re: Deletion Request for Ad Feminam

Thanks for notifying me about the RFD! I've replied to the anon user there.

Anti-harassment conference adoption

Hi,

I apologize for a mess I created. I was trying add more cons and starting running into filter blocks. I ended up trying to move a bunch of speculative fiction cons to a new page from the conference adoption and lost them. Could you revert the page to sometime earlier today? Thanks in advance.

List of women execs in tech companies

I decided to sort by first name, only because the list of women in FLOSS was done that way. Please let me know if you would like it arranged differently. Joe Cursio (talk) 14:29, October 5, 2014 (UTC)

Hi there!

My name is Ariana- I'm on the Community team over here at Wikia. I love this wiki- I'm always checking back on it and was wondering if you and your admin team would be interested in a new look for the main page? I could give it a new background, logo, headers, and some more main page content. I'm open to any ideas!

Will you let me know if you have any objections, suggestions, or concerns? Thanks so much! (I'll reach out to a few other admins as well)

Vandalism

Hello!

As I can see, your wiki was attacked by anons from different IP, so I make a decision to protect all pages here from them for a few hours. If they will attack again, call me and I will help you.
