Hey, I'm trying to make edits to the Lake Laogai episode. In the 6th paragraph, I'm trying to change it to:
I added a few sentences. But whenever I submit, it says that it had profanity/harmful language. I've been looking an can't find any in my edit. Is there any way I can add this on? Thank you in advance.
That's because you're triggering the AbuseFilter, which is active anywhere on the wiki. I can't really go into detail as that would reveal too much about the settings of the filer, but let's just say that I know what caused the problem and we're looking into it, by either adding an extension to the filter or just removing the part that's blocking you. I'll let you know when you can try again :-)
Again, it's saying "This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your edit was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Disallow profanity/abusive language."
Not Fruipit, but to quickly answer your question, that's done by adding one of the follozing behind the nation parameter. Entering:
water corresponds to a blue theme
earth corresponds to a green theme
fire corresponds to a red theme
air corresponds to an orange theme
URN corresponds to a khaki theme
spirit corresponds to a grey theme
neutral corresponds to a purple theme
With the exception of URN, it is important that you do not capitalize the words or the color switch will not work. If you don't indicate a specific nation color, the infobox will be the standard wiki brown.
Hi Fruitpit! I know that you're trying to revive the fanon portal and the fanonbenders contest and I just wanted to see if you would be interested in helping me bring back the Fanon Illustrator Insignia since those two are somewhat related :) I can work out all of the kinks and stuff but if you could help the that would be great, because you have miles more experience than me! You wouldn't have to do much, and it feel like it would give already existing fanons a new dimension with pictures.
hi fruipit! i noticed that you haven't been active in a week and i know that you must have a lot on your plate with reviving the whole fanon wiki, so i just wanted to let you know that i'm going to start looking for artists in the community that might want to be apart of th Fanon Illustrator Insignia or help revive it, if that's okay with you :)
thank you for all your help and have a good day!
Hi there! I'm obviously not Fruipit, but if you're interested in creating a fanon, I can already tell you that you are most welcome to do so! Everyone here can make and publish a fanon story. There are indeed a few rules to take into account, but for those I'd like to guide you to our Avatar Wiki:Creating a fanon guide, as that's a page that contains all sorts of helpful tips and trick, as well as list the mandatory templates and whatnot. Good luck with your story, and if you ever have any other questions, just shoot! :-D
I’m contacting you, because we want to get off on the right foot this new evolution of Fandom with the UCP and after all the feedback received at Community Connect, we want to know more about the current status of the communities. First step is to analyze the previous year and the beginning of 2020, so we would like to hear from you about this. It’s so important for us to know what’s your opinion about the work that we did in the previous months. It has been a year of a lot of changes and we would like to continue working in the right direction and find solutions to any problem detected by you.
We know that you could have questions about the UCP too, please feel free to ask me anything about it and I will share your concerns, comments and questions with the other Community Managers in order to obtain an answer as soon as possible. Keep an eye on Community Central in the next days because we are going to publish some updates about the future of this project that could be very interesting for you.
Finally, also I would like to invite you to rate the last year in Fandom from 1 to 5, meaning 1 as “definitely not good” and 5 like “this has been a fantastic year!“. It would be super helpful for our work.
BTW, if you haven’t joined us on Discord, feel free to do it, we plan to run some new projects there and use it as platform to communicate important things to TV/Movies communities, so you will be welcome to our server!
And like I said, let me know if you have any question. I will be happy to help you.
Hi there! It's been a busy week and I wanted to make sure I did (or did not) have questions for you before answering ^^; I would like to say, though, that I appreciate you reaching out to communities for their feedback regarding (potential) changes :)
I did have one question but it is focussed on the upcoming changes to message walls. On this wiki, we frequently use MW to talk to other users regarding edits or changes they have made on this wiki. In most cases, this involves linking to a page (often a policy page). With wiki markup no longer being used on the new message walls, how will this impact our ability to direct people to particular policy pages, for example?
I have unfortunately not been around much because life (isn't that always the way?) but from what I have seen, I would rank my experience as a 4 our of 5.
Hi Fruipit, I can already answer this question for you: linking on itself will still be possible by either just sharing the url (though an ugly solution) or by converting a word to a text by using the link option provided in Feeds. So linking on itself doesn't change, just the way you go about it does.
I wouldn't do that for 1. seems redundant to add a banner to an active story saying it's active; 2. too many banners are bad for SEO; and 3. the informational value provided by the banner to alert people that they're about to start reading an active story seems less useful than to alert them they're going to read something discontinued i.e. incomplete with no new updates.
Hey! Sorry, I did see this in my emails but then forgot about it ;_; I will definitely contact you or LL next time, but it's honestly the only time I've ever seen it happen (which... make of that what you will xD )
Don't worry! It's not the first time I've seen spam around here - it's very rare. Last time I saw spammers was around February last year, when the Super Bowl was on. I've also seen Korean spam as well.
Luckily we've got a few filters which help prevent these things exactly, so like you said, it's a rare occurrence.
