I made a post in the wiki's forum about this already, but I thought I would stop by and introduce myself to you as well. I have recently inherited the role of wiki manager for this community (Emptylord previously served in this position, but does not work for Fandom anymore).
Like Emptylord, I am here on behalf of Fandom to support your wiki's community, help it grow and thrive and act as a liaison between you, and full-time staff. If you ever have an issue or question related to this wiki (editing, templates, wiki design, or any other matters related to Fandom policies etc.), please feel free to contact me on my message wall, and I will assist in any way I can. 😀 Sitb (talk) 11:39, August 2, 2020 (UTC)
Anyway, the usage is mostly for pages with stolen images or for worlds/games using other people's stuffs without permissions.
It does not cover pages with too similar ability/content to other pages. That'd be Template:Unoriginal. Though, it'd be great if when you see a new page (with concept that looks original on its own) similar to older pages and consider the probability of coincidence and not use the template. Coincidence can happen and it's okay, on this wiki with over 8k pages.
He really is a unhealthy user, always making up stuff that puts him into trouble and then acting like a victim. He also is super sensitive to criticism and has some mental issues I think. He also made his greeting message "Get out" once again. Please do something about it, it's just too much drama for a place where there shouldn't be.
To be fair, this time with the alt thing, the drama only exploded because people continued to add to the drama, provoking more and more of Mickey unnecessarily and flooding Sani's boss hunt thread. Mickey is not the only one at fault here.
However yes Mickey was in the biggest fault here, he's really close to getting blocked again. He was blocked once before for creating drama too. I'll inspect his actions very carefully.
Mickey isn't going to blocked. He hasn't broken any rules that would result in a ban since the last time he did get banned, therefore he isn't going to be banned from the wiki. Remember that there are objectively worse people on the wiki, and people who have done similar things that haven't been banned before, or only got banned later down the line due to different things. For example, Rayman901 (don't search him up or anything) was worse than Mickey in every aspect, and he was only banned due to other things that don't need to be talked about here. Mickey is basically annoying from time to time.
Please also remember, that most users when they start out here are quite annoying, and may potentially stir up drama that is unneeded. Mickey has only been here a few months, and it took me literal years to become more responsible or this wiki. Again, Mickey hasn't done anything rule-breaking wise other than putting undeserved speedydelete templates on pages.
Most of the hate towards Mickey is usually blown out massively as well, and personally, Mickey don't deserve all the hate he gets on this wiki. Yes, he has done things that are honestly understandable why he gets hate for them (him not listening to actual constructive criticism, trying to guilt-trip us, etc. You especially saying that he should get banned for annoying a few people as well is just making this whole situation worse, especially if BigMickey sees this himself. I am debating on whether or not to remove this thread entirely, because at this point the hate on Mickey is almost going too far.
Even though he has been periodically annoying, it's best not to provoke him, make fun of him right in front of him or try to cause him to react negatively because that'll just make him be more of a subject of hatred than he already is. That's what caused the drama.
Trocyte V. wrote: Sure, other people were popcorning, but can you really blame them? When someone makes an alt to cheat an event by someone who isn't even doing these on an official basis anymore due to being demoted, using a pretense that would be morally questionable if it was true (ramming your interests down the throat of a family member and making them participate in something that would look utterly ridiculous to an outsider? Really?), and you CBA to have a more convincing deception, you shouldn't be surprised if everyone starts calling them out and getting them to confess. Admission of guilt is usually key to earning at least some mercy, after all.
Also, if your default response to people rightfully calling out holes in your logic (especially when you're trying to justify shitty, illogical, or rulebreaking behavior) is unironically "are you trying to bully me," you are not mature enough to use the internet for social interaction. Period. As someone with ASD myself, I know I never even consider playing that card unless the "criticism" I'm offered is outright impossible to divine advice from and has a direct insult(s) not based in any valid argument.
e: choice of words
1. yes, you can blame them. i'd honestly discourage popcorning into drama. adds nothing helpful to the situation and just complicates it further for staff since now someone else is involved. it's better to refer this kind of issue with staff. popcorning into drama is literally how it gets messy.
2. trocyte, i remember you usually like to take a devil's advocate role to these kind of potentially messy situations. and again with what i said earlier- i have no clue why you feel the need to take this kind of matter into your own hands. there's really no way to prove it isn't a family member, and if i remember correctly, sani did end up raising an edit requirement for what he handles so it makes this feel pointless.
and even if he didn't, it's still not justified since even if you get him to confess, you can't really do anything from there. and the way to do it is by playing bad cop until he cracks which isnt even what staff do.
3. and the most logical response to somebody who is clearly not handling a situation well is to not engage further in it and refer it to staff. you seem completely woefully unaware of the concept of that.
This was my first time on the wiki in which I was involved in a problem like this one. So next time (Hopefully there won't be) something like this happens again, I will handle it better instead of just snowballing into a pointless drama
Same here. I appreciate the honest criticism and apologize for any added issues my involvement may have caused (a more detailed note is [likely] in the removal reason for my deleted post above to avoid monopolizing the conversation.)
Even though "Any use" section tells you what are the only templates that are allowed to be put on other people's pages without breaking the "don't edit other people's pages" rule.
But "Personal use" section just suggests you what templates to use on your own pages, the possibility doesn't end just with the ones in the list. You can use any templates you made, or given permission by the creator, to put on your pages even though they're not on the list!
