  • Dear Lys,

    I just opened my own wiki. I was wondering how do we open applications for Admins? I hope you can help!

    • 1. Always evaluate before taking decisions. Don't be like "oh she said this so Imma ban her for eternity". People make mistakes sometimes. Make sure to talk to the person before taking serious matters.

      2. Know what power to use. This is important. You can't be too nice but you have to be hard sometimes. I learned that the hard way. I was made captain of a team. I was being soft on people. They didn't listen to me. I got harder and sure enough the coperated. 

      3. Don't abuse power. I am not saying you do but don't in the futur. You were made an Admin to take care of misbehaving people. But don't go around banning people because they don't like bananas and you do or something. Just keep that in mind.

      4. Try and go with the flow. Meaning try and blend into the community too. Like take part in group chats or something. Make you and the people more happy.

      5. Suspend then ban. It's better you suspend before permantly banning the person so they have a second chance to prove themselves. Like sometimes I might mispell or type the wrong key and post. I might not realize it is a bad or unproper word. So If you suspend maybe the person will rethink what has happned

      That's all. These might help. I am not saying you have to follow what I said. I might have put my opinion in there. But this is advice I give from experience. So there you go! Have a nice... uh... flight? Day?

      Well I'll go with day. Have a nice day and stay in school!

      Now I sound like one of my friends....

  • Dear Lys,

    I think we should have a wiki page for non-star riders since we have one for Star Riders. Honestly, that makes no sense! It would be a great idea to add so, please reconsider. If not, there is no need to have a Star Rider page.

    • I consider it an irrelevant page, since "non-star rider" isn't anything official or concrete -- it's really just the absence of Star Rider. What would one even write on that page? "Non-star riders can't do the things that are only for star riders"? The privileges of being SR are already listed on the Star Rider page, and we don't need another page to state basically the exact same thing.

  • I just wanted to say that I love what you do on the redeem code page. It is really cool how you don't give up and keep trying to make the commenters follow the rules. I bet it is a lot of work though!   Keep it up and have a good day! :D

  • Welcome back Lys! I hope your vacation went well.

    • It went very well, thank you! And thank you a ton for your help on the wikia meanwhile, you've been a huge help! :)

      I feel terrible throwing critique immediately, since you've been doing an amazing job -- but I saw you created a new category called Discovered Areas, and the other admins and I feel it's a bit redundant. We already have a category (Locations) that has all the locations from all the games, and additionally, all location pages have a category for the game they're a part of. To then have a category for location pages specifically from one game becomes a bit excessive. In the future, it'd be great if you could talk to an admin before creating a new category, especially a big one, since we want to keep them as few and relevant as possible in order to make it as easy as possible for readers to navigate around.

      But overall, you've been doing super amazing -- thank you very much!

    • No need to feel bad. I had no idea any other admins were still active or I certainly would have asked. I won't be home for another 3-4 hours due to work but as soon as I get home I'll get rid of that category.

      All the best! - Krittlez

  • Hello!

    I know you just answered this question but (lol) I have more!

    How long does it take to become an Admin? Do you have to be a certain age?

    How do you become one (excatly) is the question?

    And even if you are not an admin, can you still do stuff like point out people and stuff and help around?

    And why is wiki not taking any more admins?

    And what is one exactly?

    Thanks!

      At first I thought is was "fan" but then on the news page of SSO it said "fam" so I got confused. I didn't say you couldn't use it. It still is a new word in my vocab. But, hey Fam, it's fine c:

  • hi its me agian how do i become a admin and what do they do?

    • We aren't taking in any new admins at the moment and it'll probably be a good while until we do. When it happens, people get to send in applications and describe why they'd make a good fit and we choose the new admins based on that.

      Admins add to the wikia like any other user, but additionally we make sure people follow rules, hand out warnings, ban the ones who don't behave, undo sabotage, quality check basically every edit that comes through, etc etc.

  • Sorry about the lame attempt at a spoiler warning. I didn't realise we had a spoiler warning template and just worked with what I had. Do we have any extensions in place for hiding text and images under a spoiler warning or do we just have the one template?

      Loading editor
    • Oh, sorry, I was referring to my own attempt as lame lol! We actually didn't have a spoiler warning template for "side" quests, just for the main one, I created the other one just a few minutes ago just to have something. It would be ideal to have templates to hide images and texts -- probably could be a good idea to have one for the main storyline and one for other questlines -- but that hasn't really been a priority in my mind and right now I'm too busy to make one, so atm we only have the infobox warnings. Definitely something I'm going to make as soon as I manage to graduate x.x

    • Yup! And as said, it's only a placeholder, so if you want to improve it and/or attempt to make the hiding templates, feel absolutely free! :)

    • can i write about dressage in game ? or is that lame or irelivent

        Loading editor
    • We only include official features in pages -- I haven't had time to play in a while but afaik there still isn't dressage in the game except for the Lusitano's Piaffe, which is already explained on the Lusitano page. Feel free to write in the forums, though, that's basically free-for-all (but please keep to the right subforum).
