The wiki thinks I have not made 10 edits, so blocks me from editing my user page, despite having made 31.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

Try now.

Kingtom44 (talkcontribs)

Still doesn't work. Something wrong on Miraheze's end?

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

I'll have to ask the other admins. I'm not the technical guy, I'm a content guy. I tried adding the autopatrolled group to your account, which I thought would make the difference, but it clearly didn't.

EDIT: In addition to that, I'll drop a ping here so everyone else on the mod team gets called in. Someone should know what to do.

This may be a bug with the user permissions Miraheze allows to be assigned to certain groups. If we can eliminate all other potential causes and it's still happening, we may need to escalate it to them, since it hooks into and modifies MediaWIki's stock permission assignment code.

I'm aware my website and forums are down again.

Within the last couple minutes they have identified the problem. From their Twitter feed:

We found the issues in a fiber connection, our team is dispatched to resolve.

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Your forum is back.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

Yeah, I just posted to that effect there.

Thanks, though.

Can I still add a trope example to a work even if it's already been added to the same work on TV Tropes? Also, can I make my own ATT version of a TV Tropes trope or work page as long as the topic and examples are explained differently?

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Yes to both. If you want to avoid accidental plagiarism, just write your page/examples "clean room", meaning do not use their stuff as a reference, just write it blind without looking at them.

Bauerbach (talkcontribs)

OK!

I'm going on vacation...

Have a nice trip.

Jlaw (talkcontribs)

Happy travels and safe trip!

¡Pásala chévere en tu viaje! Have a nice trip!

GentlemensDame883 (talkcontribs)

This is a thing here?

Well, I guess I should probably inform that I too will be out of town 17 to 22 July.

Bauerbach (talkcontribs)

...what makes a person a "Usual Suspect" for a proposed launch?

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

Oh, there's no formal requirements. I just keep a file with all the FlowMention markups for everyone I'd like to CC on an "all-call" kind of message, so I can cut and paste it in quickly when I want it. I just added you and two other folks to the list yesterday, because even though we haven't given you automoderated status yet you've pretty much demonstrated your bona fides as editors to me and I saw no reason not to solicit your opinion.

Bauerbach (talkcontribs)

OK then!

About your edit on Scunthorpe Problem...

Just a 1itt1e bit further (talkcontribs)

When I mentioned "Bluenose Bowdlerizer", I was not referring to the first paragraph, but to a spoiler tag in an example.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

Fair enough.

Hi Looney, I'm here to tell you that I won't be using this account anymore. I already have my hands full with many things and I am editing on another wiki.

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Hello @LiaMinina. None of the admins here can delete an account. If you really want it removed, you'll have to ask the Miraheze Stewards here... but if that "another wiki" you mentioned is also hosted by Miraheze, you would lose access to it as well.

What we usually do in cases like this is leave the account open and inactive, in case you change your mind and come back later.

-Robkelk, admin.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

What Rob said. There really isn't anything I can add to that.

HeneryVII (talkcontribs)

THANK you, I spent about an hour trying to figure out how that worked

A Barnstar for you!

Special snowflake demands special snowflake privileges, sulks when he doesn't get them.

HDev411 (talkcontribs)

I have made further edits that do not include tropes. Please review and approve them. Thanks. ~~~~

Robkelk (talkcontribs)
Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

Seen, agreed.

HDev411, you have no special privileges here that grant you the right to demand your edits be reviewed -- and given the copyright violations you're responsible for, you're very unlikely to get any. Sit down and wait your turn like every other user. Continuing to pester admin staff to give you special treatment will result in special treatment -- just not the special treatment you want.

HDev411 (talkcontribs)

I feel so unwelcomed.

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

You are being treated exactly the same as everyone else, based on your own behaviour. If equality isn't good enough for you, what does that say about you?
