Someone uploaded another personal photo the other day, one unrelated to Aikatsu. I don't know if it's been removed yet or not though but I wanted to let you know.
Also, about the user MikuHatsune. I feel bad for doing this, but I really think she needs to be talked to or given a little ban. She's been overly rude to other members quite a few times now and nobody seems to be doing anything about it.
Overly rude and going to pages just to insult characters and such.
she has taken some sort of grudge against me for some reason, however I didnt say anything as, I believe, the simple fact of "being rude" is not something to bother you about...
If you want her to respond to any messages I suggest you leave a response to any comment she makes, she never sees her message board, I have tried to talk to her but never answers, only in comments she does.
MikuHatsune seems rather hypocritical and even narcissistic in addition to her rudeness. I came across a conversation between her and RainbowDream when I was scouting old blog posts and she called Rainy "pathetic" simply for playing the Couple Name Game with everyone else. Cue the rant from Rainy basically stating how Hatsune is bashing people who don't agree with her, which is true from what I've been seeing.
(Also this is reply for everyone I just kinda didn't notice I was quoting something)
Yeah. She seemed sweet and when she replied to my comment on the Sexy Style blog posted by RozzaPanda, but her rude comments do sound really hypocritical if how she usually comments on her own is taken into account.
> Dear MikuHatsune, I hope you know that I don't care whether you bash me or not. Blahblahblah you think I'm pathetic, that's great! The feeling is mutual. You think I'm pathetic, I think you're pathetic, everyone's happy! Except you're bashing people because they don't agree with your opinions. I'll see you around but really, calling other people disrespectful words will get you nowhere.14 days ago by RainbowDream
I will stand up for myself when someone insults me for no particular reason. Though I admit, I may have become a bit offensive, I did say my piece. Currently, the only "mean" thing she does to me is basically disagree with everything I say, except without any proof or actual reasoning. I actually find this situation kind of funny.
it should be: aquariusfever; 71 aphorism; aquariusproof... All in png format. O FYI, rainbowdream successfully used my photos to update some of the pages, but when i just checked it, it is still: this item is no longer available.
if you are to search it in ALL PHOTOS, go to the next recent page. the three photos are in front of the Ki's crystal aquarius coord introduction
Wikia recently had some maintenance problems, and I believe what we experienced before (refer to your email) is part of it. Last week, I also had some problem on uploading images (you can see the 30 minutes' gap here), but the problem supposed to be over.
Yeah, I just noticed that you had to lock the "Idol" page again for understandable reasons (because I too can not stand the chaos). However, I still think the "Aikatsu! Involvement" paragraph should be reverted to how I modified it before that guy possibly "ruined" everything. Regardless, I'm feeling your frustration as well on this matter; just letting you know.
Thanks so much! Once again, I still understand your reasons for temporaily locking said page for the time being, though. Based on the edit history, a red flag went up in my mind as well because of what went down (again).
I noticed a user (XXkayaXX) has been editing Otome's page. I thought their edits were a little strange since they were so few minutes apart, but I didn't want to jump to conclusions and assume it was detached editing... until I looked on their talk page and noticed you had warned them of it before.
I also noticed that on one episodes summary he said "I hate when people people change my edits..." Which may be warning that he does this enough, but also, the previous edit? Was his.
Yeah I'm starting to feel somewhat annoyed with the detached editing... But thinking retrospective, it also applies to contributors who don't use the preview button properly. Or, they just keep editing one section at a time (can't press the edit button on the top of the page). So how can you blame them?
And as for his edit-warring concern, he still never learns. If he's so certain that his original edits are "great," then can't he just get a reason from others? By just being too reckless about recovering his edit, it's only making it worse for him.
Well I think it's more or less up to the editor. They should think about this before they edit, so I wouldn't necessarily say they can be let off just because they didn't think ahead. Accidents do happen, but I still think a lot of people do not deserve the benefit of the doubt.
And yes I am aware of that all too well. Again, with being a mod I had to ban several people because they could not resist acting up, even after several warnings. I never wanted to punish anyone for what they did but I learned that by doing that, I wasn't really helping anything. But you are right, he may be a good editor but this is only making him look bad if he really is breaking the rules...
I looked at the previous edits and ran across some of the *ahem* rants left by some of the other contributors and the only thing I can say is that it seems she's trying to bite off more than she can chew.
While what she is doing has been annoying people, a part of me thinks she really doesn't know any better, but if that is the case then she should wait until she has more experience or ask about things before she actually edits.
I feel bad for being nosy, but I wanted to add to that. I can see peoples fascination with badges and all, but at the same time I do not how they think just earning more badges will earn you more wiki credit. You need to earn that by being a fair, decent person who helps out and is nice.
You won't believe how many people I get asking me on a bunch of the wiki I run, "if I earn more badges will I be admin?" I have to keep explaining that the badges don't mean anything other then a little fun, so much so that I infact got rid of them on a few places.
Well whether you want them or not, it's technically part of the Wikia system. There isn't illegal about it, just some practical achievements like you see on every video games. Yeah, they are for fun. I know there isn't anything important about them but I'm glad that's out of the way so I don't have to worry about that anymore.
Sure, yeah. I made 1,000 edits on this wiki. I bet that's the only milestone it matters to distinguish my reputation...Well. Yeah.
It's just that I always feel the rush... Once I start drivin', there are no brakes. Just like addiction.
I know, a lot of people just don't understand that being an admin is more then special badges and having the right to ban/punish people. Which is why I always make sure to "screen" anyone I even consider turning into an Admin.
I would also like to agree that I know that rush feeling. Like when I first joined this wiki, I was all over the place checking everything out and editing (sensibly) like mad XD
Which brings me to my attention...Is "detached editing" acceptable? It's when you make A LOT of edits in one page with spam of short, pointless editing. It's mostly the cause of badge hunting, yeah. But it's also a common mistake when people did not preview their edits properly. Of course, Most admins condemn this type of behavior, I too feel that behavior and I rather not want the history be spammed with a series of short and pointless editing by one user. But how do you distinguish newbie editors to badge hunters? Do you instantly sort out the noobs or the pros?
Most pro video gamers often do the achievements. Well, probably they want to experience Hey, try Googling "one million gamescore" and see for yourself. Very ambitious people there... Even though those achievements are for fun, at least they're ambitious for that kind of milestone.
I noticed that some users on here tend to do that sometimes (not that I could list any examples at the second...) and I'm always wondering if they simply do it because of badge hunting (as in cheating), or if they really are just doing it for another reason. It's harder to figure out because people can lie and claim they made a mistake/forgot something, but if it KEEPS happening on the exact same page then chances are the person is doing it intentionally. Because in all honesty, if most people are doing work it's usually to add something, but if it consists of choppy sentences, they're done within minutes of each other, or if it's to fix something they themself just put up (like a spelling mistake) multiple times, I would say it is cheat-editing.
Basically it's hard, but with enough people watching it gets a lot easier and the signs become more apparent. Cause I know sometimes I will misspell right after I edit, so I will fix it, but if I was to keep doing it for the next ten minutes or so, I would be basically doing it to rack up edits.
I do that same thing with the edits. If I miss something, I go back and change it immediately but then I see more of my careless mistakes. Gets me frustrated. But to use that excuse to get badges or to become an administrator or for some completely different reason, that seriously irks me. Being on a wiki and editing isn't so much about earning badges or becoming someone with a few more privilages than most; it's about improving it so fans have a reliable information source.
And I figured that becoming an admin has responsibilities like monitering the wiki, making sure there are no rules being while at the same time not breaking the new ones that come with that package, etc. It's a rather big job, isn't it?
Well, I may have a tendency for badges, but I'm a respectiful admin. at the same time. I'd like to have this position because I like to
I once tried to shoot for that "Pounce!" badge. But I apparently did it all in one page apparently, that I realized it did not even count. So I did all that massive stupid mass editing on one page, with stupid summaries. So, I just deleted it and recovered all of it without the mistake I made. Trust me. It's better that you don't know the details.
Then many days later, after more and more admin stuff, I became a more respectiful admin. Yeah. It was a stupid move I did just for that badge. It looks unadmin like, so I learned my own lesson. So, how can you get that badge without all the all minor editing spam? It's a good question... I may get it...or not. Otherwise I'd get Caffinated instead.
PS: Gallery page immigration. Instant excuse for getting the "image uploading badge."
Haha, yeah I'd say you're respectiful admin, but that was an interesting story. Even without the details. But that's good you learned something from that experience. It's an alright motivation tool for those who strive for it. Being ambitious it is a good trait just as long one isn't overly ambitious.
I always forget about the badges until the little icon pops up when I earn one then I'm like, "Oh yeah... this wiki does have those..."
Categories are tag labelers that describes a common theme for the an article and all the others. For example. Ichigo Hoshimiya and Aoi Kiriya are characters, right? Then that means they must belong in the Character category.
