#12778 I am here today to report the horrible devastation that has happened to the wiki that is of Pixelmon.

One of my major hobbies is writing stories, poems, and even some rap sheets for my mate. With this in mind, I absulutly hate the idea of horrible grammar, misspellings, and misuse of capitalization. While going through the wiki, under the title of Umbre0n, I noticed that multiple pages appear to be fan-made. That being, "YOLO", "im", and other forms of "yuo" were noticeable on the pages I explored. In the expression of "Out of my own kindness", I've been going through the few pages and correcting errors, grammar mistakes, misinterpreted nouns, you know -- the such.

But, this is not what this new topic is about. This simple topic is about my believes on the wiki, and the future of the wiki.

If you'll take some time in simply looking at these 5 pages to set your mind in the right place...

http://wiki.pixelmonmod.com/index.php?t ... abrecque23
http://wiki.pixelmonmod.com/index.php?t ... shion_.com
http://wiki.pixelmonmod.com/index.php?t ... _Expertise

You can simple see by the titles of the links themselves. The title "HedwigaLabrecque23" was interesting, if I can say on my own terms.

Now, do I have to explain what I must say? These pages taking up bandwidth, costing money.. Accidental viruses sent to your users... You know, the sorts.

With the permission of an administrator, I will gladly take from my life to remove all pages found -- Of the sorts of advertisements, simple spam, or not even in the topic of Pixelmon -- in the wiki that I cross. I will, with or without permission, correct any simple misspellings, grammar mistakes, and the such from the main pages. If I am not sure, I will message a higher user and request for them to do what seems fit.


My recommendation: First, download all of the pages that are needed in your wiki. Second, wipe it all off. Delete every page of your wiki, if not the wiki itself. Third, re-create the wiki with the downloaded pages from scratch.


I would like to thank you for reading my post, feel free to discuss your thoughts on the matter.

Has Mr. M ever considered the idea that there might actually be people, like me, who will go out of their way in helping the community be taking the role as an administrator of the wiki for him?

I will gladly take the roll. But, not as a simple member. If I were to get the rank of, say.. "Editor" on the wiki, and maybe a title here letting others know what I do, I'll actually be more then gladly to accept.

#12786 I have an idea (maybe it's already there), what about having a wiki-team that are the only ones to change/edit the wiki. =D

#12787 I just made a wiki editors group. I'll see what i can do about permissions for the wiki but may not be able to do so from here (may have to be home to get at that stuff)

Yes that would be ideal

#12789 Mr. M, can you please private message me? I believe I have an amazing way to get you followers on Twitter. I gave myself, @PTDSanctuary, around 200 new followers in 3 days. Not lying, all it takes it some math skills and a little time out of your day. But you must follow them back. Message me if you're interested.

This thread is going way too fast for me, there's probably 4 new posts as I'm typing this.
