  • Hi, I want to know what it’s like to be an admin, and why it’s different than a moderator

    • Admins and moderators are simply people with greater control over the wiki!

      There are different types of moderators, but Content Moderators are the only ones we have on this wiki. Content Moderators can:

      • Move pages (to different URLs) and rollback (undo all edits made in a row by a single editor) edits on pages
      • Block editors and contributors who are vandalizing the wiki
      • Use some special tools to edit the wiki better

      Administrators, on the other hand, have far more privileges and power within the wiki. Admins have all of the above privileges possessed by Content Moderators and more -- some of these are listed below:

      • Being able to delete and rename pages
      • Protect pages from certain usertypes editing them
      • Use far more special tools to edit the wiki and get a closer look at it and its statistics
      • Generally having the ability to look directly in the core and code of the wiki and change it greatly, such as customizing its look, the design of badges, the internal JS or CSS of a wiki, etc.


      Hope that answers your question! If you have any follow-ups, feel free to ask me! ( ง`ヮ´ )ง

    • Thank you very much! It really helped me understand.

      I was also wondering why you removed the category “invertebrates”. I need to know, so I don’t make the same mistake again. Thanks a bunch!

    • No problem!

      As for the issue with the category "Invertebrates", that's relatively simple -- here on the Wiki, we like to go into some detail on real life characteristics of animals. However, there is a line, especially with categories.

      In general, categories like "Butterflyfish" or "Cephalopods" are okay because they list the individual members of specific species -- so if you like the bigfin reef squid, then you can look at similar cephalopods through that category. However, "Invertebrates" is so broad that there's really no point to it -- it's like splitting the "Creatures" category in two (Invertebrates and Vertebrates), right?

      Hope that helps you understand!

  • Hey Dan, I noticed the Wiki has an official discord now, and was interested in joining. I can't seem to find a way to enter though, is there any requirements I don't know about or am I just looking in the wrong spot? I love getting involved with the community and want to get in on the Discord side of things.

    • Oh man, I'm such a dummy -- it's not that there's any requirements you need to meet to get in to the Discord, it's that I didn't even put a link to join the Discord here on the wiki! I'm glad you pointed this out, this problem is entirely my bad, until now the only way to find the invite was on Reddit.

      I'll integrate the Discord invite across the wiki, but for now, here you go! https://discord.gg/28wcrbZ

      I'm looking forward to seeing you there! :D

  • Hi, I've been having an odd time with fandom wiki. Everytime I try to add a new page onto any fandoms I work on, my Avast goes crazy and says there's a 'Phishing' virus alert. Do you know what's happening? I never had any trouble with fandom wiki before.

    • Thank you for all your help :) I am sorry this message was random but I wasn't getting any answers from anywhere else. It was really sweet of you to help this silly Scot out of a pickle.
