Hey I was wondering if when you adopted the wiki who all did you demote that use to be an admin here. I found one person. Danierox. Were there more? I'm trying to get them all listed on the admins page.
I didn't demote anyone. I cannot demote anyone who is a b'crat. Only the user can demote themselves. I adopted the wiki because there were no admins to begin with here. When I made my first edit, I was welcomed by Wikia's welcome message and not an admin. Which was when I decided to adopt the wiki. Danierox was the creator of the wiki. He made a few edits and then left. Since then anons have been updating the wiki.
Hey guys. I'm not sure which one of you gave me the promotion, but thank you. I will sure help keep the entire wiki up to date. Now I've never been an admin before exept on wikis I've created, so I might need some help. But the wiki looks great. Good luck with whatever you demoted yourself for, RaghavD and I'll talk to you soon Derpster01.
RaghavD promoted you :) If you need any help just ask me. I know I should be here more, I just get busy :\ Plus I'm admin at several other wikis. Anyways I hope Raghav gets back to me soon. Whenever I checked in on the wiki it looked like he was here frequently enough.
I don't know why I did it. Sounds crazy, but it felt very empty here. So I just demoted myself. I may or may not ask you to promote me back later. I'm not going anywhere. Just promoted Daniel to look after the wiki in my absence.
Also, ever since banning Jaume13, I've been working on our wiki guideline page. Here is my draft. I put it in a template so people didn't see it on the wiki activity. Just make any changes you think are necessary and I'll post it :)
I made a few minor changes and it's good to go. You could post the link to the guidelines in the Admin Welcome Mesage (so that new users will be intimated) and also in the Community Messages section (for the existing ones).
How do you edit the welcoming message? I'd like to make a few changes to that too just so the new users know how serious we are. Ever since Jaume13 and that weird user, BitchImGonnaWoopYourAss, I have little to no tolerance for those spamming users.
I found another TAAHM wiki that was abandoned. I found that the founder of the wiki had been globally banned. No one edits there, and though the page info is useless, they do have some pictures we don't have. I was thinking about having the wikis merged (as in having their wiki destroyed and having their URL as a redirect here). I'll start adding the pictures, but lemme know if you're for or against the merge.
I have given Jaume13 a three month ban. He has really crossed the line today and he needs to be punished. He was calling the new template "shit" and pretty much insulting the admins. He acts as if he runs the place and removes content from pages. I'm updating our policies page and making a blog post for them.
As for Daniel.safe35, he has been doing a great job editing. He's been helping out a lot and it seems that we are the three main editors, maybe we should talk about making Daniel an admin. After all, he works just as hard and good as us and we're the three main users, why shouldn't he be an admin like us? Just think about it. Happy editing, thanks :)
As someone who's observed a lot of wikis till now, I know that "power" gets into people's heads. You wanted to make Jaume13 an admin and look how that turned out. I'm not questioning your judgement, but really 2 admins are more than enough for a wiki like ours. I'm not one to keep all powers to myself. I did make you a B'crat afterall.
Right now the need of the hour is proper content. It is THE king. Let's concentrate on adding information, pictures and quotes to the needed articles.
That's all I'd like to say and just because you're an admin, doesn't mean you get to flex those muscles and block people. Jaume13 is wrong, but you need patience for such users. Anyway, he did need to suffer the consequences of being banned. That being said, he might not return and we need to chip in a little more. Cheer!
I honestly don't think Jaume13 should come back. Since he's caused so much conflict during the month or two he's been here, as far as I'm concerned he's no longer welcome. I was tempted to give him an infinite ban, but I decided when I let all my anger for him go (which will be approximately 3 months, give or take) he may have realized what his actions led him to and would be willing to change. When I first wanted Jaume13 as the third admin, I honestly hadn't payed too much attention to his editing record and after seeing it and the way he acts towards the admins, I'm glad I never gave him any kind of power here. Maybe he'll learn his lesson once his ban is complete. The two things I thought crossed the line was when he called the new templates "shit", which is language we don't use at this wiki and how he kept repeating it like that was just revolting. The other thing was when he said he "let" us keep the episode count or list of appearances or whatever. He doesn't "let" us do anything. He doesn't run this wiki. He contributes to it and does not do a great job. Technically, no one runs this place, but the admins are the ones that keep things in line, they're the ones with the power that they've earned (despite me receiving my admin rights the day I joined this wiki, but hey, I'm contributing and I think I'm doing a good job :P). Anyways, Jaume13 was acting as if this wiki was his and he was the leader. It was so annoying, and then I find out he's deleting content from pages. No, just no.
Now that we got that mess out of the way, I was wondering if you're pleased with the templates? Daniel.safe35 and I thought they looked more attractive as they matched the color scheme. I was thinking on holding off on the episode template until we update all the characters to the new character template.
See Alan's page history. I did add the new template and Jaume13 reverted the edit. I won't bother with him. It's up to you on what you want to do with him.
The templates are really pleasing to look at with more fields for the Character's information. Good job with the templates! As for the Episode template, just add the template to the Wiki. We'll not add it to the episodes yet. We'll have time to decide any changes it might need.
There's something wrong with the Infobox Character template (atleast with the Rose article). Any pic I put, is being displayed as just like it was uploaded. It isn't getting shrunken to the Infobox's dimensions. The code seems alright (wrt to the Image field). Just check that out.
Hey, sooo I'm back :) I like the main page redesign, btw :) Also, idea for recurring and minor characters. I was thinking, two episodes shouldn't cut it for being "recurring". Maybe five or more episodes is recurring while 2-4 is minor and then make a category for episodic characters. Just a thought.
I just remembered, I'd need help to add the newer Character template to the characters (the one you added). I thought they gelled well with the color scheme, but Jaume13 doesn't think so. He keeps changing back to the old one. I've been tempted to block him on more than one occassion, but managed to restrain myself.
Listen everyone, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!!!!!!!!!! Why are you putting that shit of template in every character???? Can you put the old one please? I mean, is not well, is so much better the old one. And Derpster01, yes, Im not admin but I do somethings good for this wiki. I endured to let you put the cast information in EVERY episode, but I don't agree to put you that SHIT of template!!!! Answer me and later talk.
Actually, you know what, I'm so fed up with your attitude that I'm blocking you now. You take out page info which could be considered vandalism, you disrespect the wiki's admins, you revert their edits, you act like you run the place. I'm done. See you in three to six months.
Hey guys!!! Do you remember me????? It's me, Jaume13!! It's been a while, right??? I'm not returning here, I just want to ask how are you, it's been a WHOLE YEAR!!! Well how's the wikia??? I guess fine, you've been working a lot!! You know what??? Now I'm an admin for the Modern Family Wiki!! It's amazing, and I've been putting a lot of work in it!! And by the way, I'm sorry for what happened last year, calling your new template's a shit. I was really wrong; it seems to look very good in pages!! So, we're cool??
Hello Daniel.safe.35, I'm actually the other admin of this wiki (well I was until I demoted myself for a while, but still had bureaucrat powers to I came back and gave myself admin rights again), but anyways, thank you for letting us know. Contact RaghavD or myself if there's any other questions. I'll be here more often :)
I havn't seen RaghavD for a bit on the wiki. So I went to your page cause I knew you were also admin, but it didn't say admin on your page, so I came back here, I also knew you were gone, so that was another thing.
