Hi, welcome to Zoids Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Irvine page.

If you're new to Wika, you might want to check out the editing help section for some useful tips to get started.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! Sylvanelite (talk) 04:20, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Hello[]

Hey there! I do not have the necessary permissions to block that user; if you want to report them for Vandalism to the VSTF, you may do so here. Patrik 22:24, October 26, 2018 (UTC)

Have you considered adopting this wiki? That would be the best solution for dealing with persistent vandals. The VSTF might not always clean them up (especially if there are active admins); in addition, if you were a local admin the vandal would get cleaned up in the shortest amount of time. You would, of course, need to talk with the current admin and wider community about this, but I think it's your best option. Patrik 22:46, October 26, 2018 (UTC)
Makes sense to wait some more before requesting Admin rights. To answer your question, who would you be citing your work on other wikis to? FANDOM Staff or the current admin? Patrik 23:07, October 26, 2018 (UTC)
Well, that would certainly be a good thing to cite, especially when making your case to local users, although obviously edits and time spent on the wiki are even better. Hope that answers your question. :) Patrik 23:26, October 26, 2018 (UTC)
Good luck, hope you get it eventually! Let me know if you have any other questions. Patrik 23:31, October 26, 2018 (UTC)

My advice is quite simple. Never react, trolls want reactions and to know that they're getting to you. Never react no matter what and that includes insults and conversation. It sounds like they are using a VPN and borrowing IPs to spam new accounts and IPs to harass and torment. Have the admins on JP wiki consider an abuse filter for profanity, page spam, page blanking, and page moving. It should reduce attacks greatly and bore the vandal into leaving.

If you feel you are needed to aid opposing vandals then request rights from an Admin or B-crat. Removing your favorite wikis list and hiding all of them prevents bleed over/them harassing you on other wikis. I hope this helps. Zane T 69 (talk) 17:33, February 22, 2019 (UTC)

Zane is right. There is an old wiki guideline on Wikipedia which says "Don't feed the trolls": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Deny_recognition Hiding your favorite wikis also is a great idea to avoid being bothered. Throwaway got globalled after I reported him to staff and linked them to his contributions on multiple wikis. As there hasn't been any active admin for more than two months, adoption might also be something to consider. However for an adoption you need the support of the community, as well you shouldn't have a record of rightful current blocks. Blocks for petty reasons of course don't count. More guidelines you find here: https://community.wikia.com/wiki/Adoption:Requests

Sylvanelite comes when needed, but the wiki doesn't meet the requirements for adoption. I can ask him about promoting me, I take Admin duties seriously and this wiki wouldn't even be a problem in terms of work load. Zane T 69 (talk) 17:59, February 22, 2019 (UTC)

I posted on his talk page. Zane T 69 (talk) 18:24, February 22, 2019 (UTC)

If no admin has edited for two months - Sylvanelite last edited more than three months ago - a wiki is eligible for adoption per the adoption guidelines. However if Sylvanelite comes back as you suppose the wiki will of course no longer be eligible for adoption. As he is only an admin he only can promote mods per the group rights list: Special:ListGroupRights

Moviejunkie2009 (talk) 18:36, February 22, 2019 (UTC)

I knew that he couldn't promote me; I'm an Admin/B-Crat on another wiki, but I might need an RFA. I did help him out a lot, so he should support me. The wiki needs Admins and I'll be requesting it either way to make sure that the wiki has one on hand to deal with vandals or harassment. Plus I can easily manage it since I'm only responsible for one other wiki that I already have well policed and staffed. Zane T 69 (talk) 18:44, February 22, 2019 (UTC)

This wiki doesn't seem to have pages for requests for adminship. So yes a forum post or asking a bureaucrat is also a way to get admin rights. I also manage several wikis including Transformers Wiki and other Takara Tomy-related wikis.

Moviejunkie2009 (talk) 18:51, February 22, 2019 (UTC)

Cool. They seem really well-run. I'll give Sylvanelite a few days before talking with the Bureaucrat unless the wiki comes under attack then I'll move to adopt, but it seems unlikely that we would be attacked. The wiki doesn't seem to be in any danger so I see no risk in waiting. Zane T 69 (talk) 19:21, February 22, 2019 (UTC)

Adoption request[]

Hi. I’ve given you admin and bureaucrat rights on this community as you requested. You now have the tools you need to clean up, customize, and maintain the wiki.

Check out your Admin Dashboard, which can be found by clicking "Admin" on the bottom toolbar. It has links to all your new tools. Please let me know if you have any questions, and good luck with the wiki! JoePlay FandomStaff.png (talk) 19:12, February 27, 2019 (UTC)

I don't understand why you want to remove heroes off the characters who are the good guys that makes no sense.

Thank you[]

Thank you for spam prevention. Whoever that editor was, he was making us all that enjoy the Wiki sites not enjoy his dirty behavior.--Traitor Hater 2000 (talk) 23:04, August 6, 2020 (UTC)
