  • I was just looking at your post from a while back about looking for admins. I responded a while back. I'm still interested. I was inactive for a while, but I'm back and I've made some helpful edits and one or two new articles. My knowledge is mostly the story record albums and anime series.

    Thanks.

    • If you don't mind April Fools' Day I can assume in good faith that you'd remain after that and promote you that day. =]

    • Maybe I'll make a joke edit that day. Edits can be undone, right? ;) Nah, I'm just kidding. I just wanted some clarificaton on whether you meant 30 days (16th of April) or first day or two of April. As long as nothing else catches my attention by then, I'll send you a reminder on the 1st or 2ns of April and let you know I'm still interested or some time after.

    Hey, the "Oz on screen" template ( http://oz.wikia.com/wiki/Template%3AOz_on_screen ), which I created, is getting a bit out of date and I'd like to edit it; unfortunately it seems to be locked now. Any chance you could either unlock it or give me admin status to edit it or something?

    Thanks a lot,

  • Hey, more users needing to be blocked...they're really messing with the Wicked Cast's List page on a daily basis, and it's getting really hard for me to catch them and undo their errors before it balloons. Is there anyway I can get some admin privileges to block them so I don't have to keep refering them to you?

    Users are:

    Sim333333 http://oz.wikia.com/wiki/User:Sims333333

    Nanny Yackle http://oz.wikia.com/wiki/User:Nanny_Yackle

    Bruno333 http://oz.wikia.com/wiki/User:Bruno333

    • Hi there Philipkc! Thanks for reporting! Though here's the thing, do they really know they are messing up a page? This may sound unfathomable, but unfortunately, it seems like the majority of the people on Wikia really does not read edit summaries by other people, or investigate why certain things are not to be done.

      I have not seen you verbally trying to talk to those people (on their wall, where they WILL get notifications), with the fact that User:Sims333333 and User:Bruno333 barely contributed enough (edit counts) overall (though I agree their username similarity does look a little dubious). User:Nanny Yackle seemed more likely to be blocked, but again, we need to make sure they know it's coming rather than just blocking them without warning.

      In the past, even with all the ridiculous duplicated file-uploading, I've always made sure to write on the culprits wall, multiple times, before blocking them. That way they have no excuse to complain.

      So here's my proposal: Please write to those three people, express what they shouldn't be doing and warn them they will be blocked if they continued, and I will then promote you with admin rights. Please only block them if they do actually did something wrong after your message. Please let me know when you finish writing to them. Thanks!

    • Hey, sounds good! They definitely know they're doing something wrong because all 3 accounts have been editing/adding bogus cast updates almost on the daily. I will reach out to them to let them know that they can be blocked if they don't stop, and will await my promotion to an admin. Thanks :)

    • I've finished writing to all 3 of them!

  • Hey, user Broun (http://oz.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/Broun) has made 5 edits to the Wicked Casts Lists page that were all wrong...he was just trolling by adding former cast members and made up dates to the page. I've undone all his previous and most recent edits to the page, but he clearly isn't getting the message. Are you able to warn and perhaps block him? Thanks!

  • Yes I was wondering how am I able to become a administrator or moderator on here ?

    • Ahhh you caught me at a bad timing (about to be gone on a family trip), however, I do know you've be really active and helpful for this wiki; so in compromise, I'll first promote you to Content Moderator, which basically have the most crucial rights the Admin has (sans blocking), and go from there? When I come back from the trip (end of August) I can then look over the result and see whether promoting to Admin is needed, though frankly, CM should be enough. Would you like to take charge of the forum? Cuz if so, I can also give you the additional right as Discussion Moderator if you feel the need to highlight threads. Please let me know ASAP. =]

    • Hey there! It's been a really long while! Glad to see people previously active, are still, active lol! You've never approached me on the subject matter again (I think,) but since another User came to me about becoming an Admin, I was wondering if you'd like to be promoted to one as well? Seems a bit long overdue, and you've been a constant help here! Let me know what you think. =D

  • Did you get the report I posted on your Twitter page, using the alias Dsneybuf91?

    • Hi there! Dang, I'm sorry, I didn't know Twitter had the filters "All" and "People you follow"; it did not even notify me that I was mentioned in the Tweets, so thanks for messaging me here.

      I have to say though... I'm afraid I'm quite useless in this situation... as you can see per what I said on Thread:10731; I just don't know the fandom well enough to make those type of decisions (I'm really more of the janitor of this wiki). Do you think you'd be constantly active and know relatively well about the subject? If you are interested, I can set you up as a content mod if you want to do a 7-day try out like User:Riadse96 did.

    • Well, I do consider myself a big fan of Oz sometimes.  Although, does the fact that  I've only read two of the original books, as of now, sound like a huge problem?  If not, then I'd feel willing to do a try out.

    • I can assure you that I have seen a lot more Oz-related works than the four name-dropped on my profile.

  • Of course I'd apply for this position with my overall interest in Oz, especially with much emphasis onto recent and upcoming TV and Film adaptations. I have much experience with the Oz universe in reading Baum's original 14 along with books 15-17 by Ruth Thomson, along with seeing almost all of the Oz films. In being currently 19 years old, I've made over 300 edits since December 2013 with most of my work creating those entertainment pages, revamping the "Films and Television" template, and also contributing much to the "Full text Oz books" section (mostly taken from Wikisource).

    If there is something I'd really look into in becoming Admin, it would be the alternate Oz called Magic Land as we surprisingly don't have much info on what is really a big franchise in Russia (movies, TV shows, and even computer games).

    • Yes, "That's So Raven" was just edited to the best of my knowledge as it had two different Oz themed scenarios and yes I do agree the "Witch" page is better.

  • Hey, glad to see you've taken over as admin! Sorry I didn't reply to your earlier messages – still figuring out the details of this Wiki. I did have a question though, could you consider blocking user "Renzorocca395?" I have warned him multiple times that he is changing incorrect information on the Wiki cast page, and he kept doing it. He was the reason why I wanted to adopt the page in the first place! 

      Loading editor
    • Hey there! I've read your adoption requests but it seems like back then it was for User:RenzoRR; given both user have the same 5 initial alphabets as their username, it is likely that they are the same person, but unfortunately I have no proof of it (I do not know how people find out and block people due to "abusing multiple accounts", if you know how it is done, please share it with me!)

      Anyways, since this new user you are reporting, has only done 1 edit so far (let's hope), technically speaking it's really harsh if blocking people right after their "first" mistake; (even the uncaring image uploader I've recently blocked had been warned quite a few times before it happened), so what I will do is, I'ma block the old troublemaker and select "Prevent account creation", "Automatically block the last IP address used by this user, and any subsequent IP addresses they try to edit from", and "Prevent logged-in users from editing from this IP address"; if they are the same person, theoretically s/he also wouldn't be able to use this new account. If they manage to do it two more times, I will block this new account for sure. Hope that's okay with you?
