  • Dear Janus100,

    Can I make The Anomaly page or should I wait until Season 7?

  • Hi again, Janus! I wanted to let you know that the new "Editor Experience" feature will be running ont he 100 Wiki. It's an introductory tool for new users that gives a virtual walkthrough on how to edit. You may find it on the right side of the rail, and if you're interested on checking it out, please let me know what you think; I'm looking to hear any feedback or opinions you might have on it!

    • Are you talking about the "Want to help? We'll show you." button? I guess the walkthrough is nice...

      The user doesn't actually do anything except read textboxes and click next, creating a limited learning experience - same as reading a labeled image. While it's nice to define each section of the editing window, not all that information is needed for first edit. And for users trying to do a more advanced edit, the walkthrough is insufficient. It also fails to tell the new editor where to get more editing information or how to seek assistance.

      The goal seems to be to get more readers editing, yet it's a desktop-only feature. The walkthrough itself states that most website users are mobile - yet those users are unable to edit. If FANDOM wanted more editors, than it would create features to make it easy for mobile fans to contribute. It seems counter-intuitive to tell desktop editors that they need to focus on mobile readers.

      I do feel that converting readers to editors is important and walkthroughs like this may help encourage some readers to take the plunge. Thus, I'm supportive of these types of efforts, even if my feedback is at times critical.

  • Dear Janus100,

    When Clarke (posing as Josie) fails to convince Russell and Simone not to kill and mind wipe the sleeping Wonkru members, who are in cryo-sleep, Simone says, "It's bigger than the tank on Eligius III."

    What does it mean, "It's bigger than the tank on Eligius III"?

    What does Simone mean by that? I'm just curious.

  • Please block me for a very long time. I have not been very nice, I have been rude to others and been editing counterproductively and I deserve it.

    Thanks.

    • Okay then... I don't want to be blocked, I just figured I deserved it.

      I am willing to compromise. And I'll be nicer.

"Please try to be a bit less rude in your edit comments/summaries" really didn't need all this drama. (Like no need for if you'd been paying attention! to whoever it was, might've been WarGrowlmon18, nor snarking at me about how I abbreviate edit comments. At least I try to leave them. As my wall says, constructive criticism is always welcome.) 

      • Edited to add: I was a bit snappy in my first week or 2 here with a colleague (Eugene) because I'd thought he'd undone a lot of my work on purpose. I realized it had been a mistake on his part (and wrong on my part) so I apologized and it was all good. Newb mistake. I'm still new & learning. You're not new. Though there's always room to learn I guess.

      Nobody needs extra negativity. We're all people probably doing our best. This is the last I'll discuss this because it wasn't supposed to be a big deal and *I* don't need this negativity either. 

      Cheers.

      I am sorry for everything.

  • Hello Janus100,

    I did add text to Gabriel Santiago - season 6 - blood of Sanctum - just to express THIS is my text I added 26..28 August 2019. Now as I realize 'Diyoza' is a family name, and now there are two characters with that family name - I simple addad "Charmaine" infront of Diyoza to make it clear: Hope Diyoza is the daughter of Charmaine Diyoza. Funny in the series Charmaine is mostly called Diyoza, while her daughter will be called Hope.

    However user WarGrowlmon18 just did an UNDO of my own speification to my own text. Independent look at WarGrowlmon18 Contribution, this user just does a lot UNDO's in the past!

    Please give me advise for such a situation - I am still young here and able to learn. Thanks      

    p.s. 2nd issue : I corrected that the reactor of Sanctum is effectiv under the maschine shop (not under the palace), where Clare with help of Pryia did successfully stop the reactor to take down the radiation shiled

    • I'm currently on an out of town trip, utterly exhausted, and have my alarm set to 3 am so I can catch my flight home tomorrow. I apologize, I have very limited energy for this today,

      In general, if there is an editing disagreement, first step is to speak with the other user. If the editors cannot settle the dispute by themselves, they can seek wider community input (e.g. posting on Board:Suggestions aka the Editing Board) or bring the issue to an admin.

      re:Hope Diyoza - I agree that "Charmaine" should be included in that line. Wellsworth96 already reverted. So that's three users agreeing on inclusion.

      re:reactor - You're right, it's below the machine shop per 612. Wellsworth96 has already reverted.

      re:WarGrowlmon18's history of undos - I don't have the energy to do a thorough review at this moment. Glancing at the past 100 main space edits, undo's don't seem excessive and most seem within reason.

  • Hello again Janus! I'm happy to announce that FANDOM's switching to the Editor Rewards program for all editors. It's a system that recognizes the hard work of individual users and awards those that have performed immensely with special recognitions. Details are on this blog post, and it'd be most appreciated if you could give some feedback on said blog post! Let me know if you have any questions!

  • Dear Janus100,

    Can I make a list page of the worlds, including Earth, Alpha, and the upcoming Anomaly world?

  • Dear Janus100,

    Wellsworth96 thinks that Hope Diyoza is a prisoner, but she's not. Can you tell Wellsworth96 that it's not true?

    • Yes, in general, editors should avoid calling things vandalism unless it's pretty clear. Assuming good faith is listed twice in our general policies.

      Please avoid "Category:Help needed" since it's unhelpful. Glancing at the article, it looks filled out, so the category fails to explain what you're requesting help with. Instead use {{empty section}} or {{incomplete section}} on specific sections. If entire article needs help, use {{Help needed}} and specify reason. Please always use template (which auto-add appropriate category) and don't add the categories directly. Thanks.

    • Yeah, that wasn't me who added "Help needed" - but seriously good to know, thanks.  Clearly not vandalism, but good to know. I could see myself having added it at some point trying to be, well.... helpful (I might have even added that at some other point, and would have appreciated the "yeah don't" feedback). Constructive criticism is great; in this case I was more worried about the tone implied by assuming vandalism over honest mistakes or wikiworld faux pas

      I'd been excited about Fandom wikis because I figured they might avoid the edit wars, accusations, and drama of more "serious" wikis that deal with politics, IRL controversies, etc.  Should have figured it's still people who are passionate about stuff, even if not conventionally controversial stuff. Which is fine, am just adjusting.

  • Dear Janus100,

    Did you find out how Picasso got to the new world, or how she exists as the last living dog?
