  • So SH and the Izaya-centric novels will end eventually, we all know this. But what happens when we run out of content? When there are no more cross-overs, video games, magazines, etc. What exactly happens with the Wiki once you've run out of content? Is it archived?

    I know this is strange, but it's a idle question we're throwing around on the Discord. We're aware that there are always small things you can do, like re-writing pages, updating the theme, etc. But there will eventually come a point when there's nothing more to update but the theme and maybe some CSS.

    • There would be a time in the future when there is, realistically, nothing more to add. If there is no content to add and no one is watching edits, it could easily fill with vandalism and spam. Then the legacy of the work that was done is for nothing.

      I recall one being "locked" a long time ago, I believe it was for a game, and then no more edits were allowed. Wikis can be set to not allow IP edits in the control panel, but locking would require the staff, and even then, someone in the future could ask to have it reopened...

    • So then, the hope would be that the last remaining admin would lock the Wiki from IP edits before vanishing into the night. Following that, registered users could certainly vandalize the place, but also, fandom could allow someone to adopt it and clean it up before leaving it to sit again.

      Really, it's depressing to think about! Haha years of work just down the drain, but then again... Hopefully the Wiki stands and maintains its accuracy for as long as possible. I don't plan to go anywhere anytime soon, though I've found a new fandom, Durarara is still running. For now, we only have to discuss this in future terms, at least...

  • Are you using a bot to remove categories from images?

    • In the recent changes you can uncheck the "File" namespace to easily see the rest of the edits. Or "hide minor edits".

      The other account doesn't have a bot flag on this wiki, it's on a per wiki basis.

      A bot is just a piece of software to automate things, the edits still would have happened without it, it would have just taken a lot longer.

    • Using a bot for something like that makes sense as it is repetitive work; I get it, but there's a reason we're calling you out on this. For one: you didn't mention with any of us about using it. Two: you have it with your profile, not a separate profile specifically for the bot.

      We can see how many edits per minute that bot was making, and that had to have been slowing down the server. I see it was doing 15 edits per minute. You didn't run through with us on anything about what it will do, and you certainly didn't get the community's approval on it. Not only did you not have a separate profile for just the bot, you did not flag it as a bot. This is part of Fandom guidelines for bots.

      As ChromeCircus mentioned, please migrate the bot to a bot profile. Let us know before so we can actually set an editing rate and we can approve it, rather than just us seeing an overlow of bot edits in the recent activity log unaware.

  • Would you be willing to give me Bureaucrat rights? It's not as though I intend to swipe the Wiki out from under you, it's that you don't seem to have anything more to contribute, or any interest left. I've voluntarily given up Wiki's before to my admin's who had more to contribute than I did, though, my concern here is more that you'll just stop appearing and responding to messages. I have the ability to make important changes right now, but I can't appoint new mods or admins if I need to. Adopting Wiki's is a long process that I rather just avoid if possible.

    Shiki isn't really active anymore, I had planned to make SparklingLimeade the mod since she's active and contributes.

    My other plan was to re-do the header and background image. I also have a few projects in mind to make the Wiki more informative without making it messy.

    • Any of these discussions can happen on Board:General_Discussion, that's what it's for. I will more than likely not be online at the same time, the Forum should suffice.

  • I'm sure you've noticed that there's been consistent vandalism by a spoofed IP address, it's always different so I usually don't bother banning them. I emailed Fandom to see if we could get a MAC ban on the person, but they replied that they weren't able to fulfill MAC bans and asked that we adjust our settings to only allow logged in users for a bit. I think this would help slow them down if they had to make a new account each and every time, I also planned to give a short protection to a few characters they like to vanadlize the most to further discourage any returns. Is this something you're open to?

  • Can I go ahead and edit the community corner? I was thinking about linking to the policy & style sheet, while also making suggestions for ways new editors can help out.

  • Hey Sxerks,


    We're currently down to just you as an admin, and since you seem to operate on an opposite time-zone to myself, I was hoping you'd consider granting me admin rights. I'm still pretty obsessed with the series, and it would really help the Wiki out to have an extra person around to handle trolls as they come in waves (sometimes for hours at a time). I've been on the Wiki for a few years, I've made a lot of helpful and consistent edits. The Wiki could really benefit from having an active admin to look to. Please consider it and let me know what you think.

    • For what it's worth, I've been keeping an eye on the Durarara!! wiki given that I'm the only admin of the Baccano! wiki (so, you know, Naritaverse wikis stick together? or so I'd like to think), done one or two edits here, and I think Chrome would be a great admin from what I've seen. From what I remember, I was honestly surprised that Chrome wasn't an admin already the first couple of times I poked around the site and saw their username popping up everywhere, from edit corrections to helping out users, generally showing a clear interest in both Drrr!! and the wiki itself. 

      Dunno if my opinion counts for much on this, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to show my support on this one.

    • Sure. Usually don't add admins unless there is an unmanageable amount of edits. And I do check the recent changes everyday, so I am actively checking the wiki.

      edit: You did have "Content Moderator"(similar to admin) a year ago but must have deleted something incorrectly and I removed it. Hopefully that won't happen again.

    • Thank you!

      And yes, I recall. Fortunately, I adopted a Wiki about a year ago, so I have admin and bureaucrat rights there. Just enough time for me to figure out how to do things properly, or how to undo them at the very least. There's nothing much to be deleted here at least.

  • I'm at work so forgive any typos. But it appears another Wiki community has copied our Wiki from the source code. I realize this is a wiki terms violation, but I wanted to get your opinion before reporting them.
