I made a discussion post about this already, but I thought I would stop by and introduce myself to you as well. I have recently inherited the role of wiki manager for this community (Emptylord previously served in this position, but does not work for Fandom anymore).
Like Emptylord, I am here on behalf of Fandom to support your wiki's community, help it grow and thrive and act as a liaison between you, and full-time staff. If you ever have an issue or question related to this wiki (editing, templates, wiki design, or any other matters related to Fandom policies etc.), please feel free to contact me on my message wall, and I will assist in any way I can. 😀 - Sitb(Message wall / Talk page) 10:54, August 27, 2020 (UTC)
Hey Blueoptic! I'm Emptylord, and I'm the Fandom Wiki Manager for Dreamscape317 Wiki. I introduced myself on your Discussion Boards, but just wanted to drop you a message personally since you're one of the more active editors around here. Basically, if you have any questions relating to the wiki, I'm your first point of contact.
What brings you to the Dreamscape317 Wiki?
You are one of my designees.
What kind of assistance can you offer us?
Coding, policy, formatting, design, etc. Anything you need, really.
Just while getting in contact, I noticed that neither the wiki nor your website actually has anything saying "Dreamscape is a RuneScape Private Server". I assumed as much from the printscreens, but... well, just saying I suppose. Might be worth having an About Us section anywhere. ;)
Can you remove all the inactive/banned players who have that rank? The fewer the better. Many people were given that rank that should not have had it in the first place. Some who have, are inactive for more than 1 year!
Hey thanks for removing the banned players ranks and the ones that I requested. Are you able to continue to remove the ranks of people who havent edited in over 1 year? The people that havent edited in over a year no longer play our game/wiki.
Sorry, I was on vacation this past week. As you noticed, I did demote the banned users before I left. I can demote the inactive users, too, if desired. I am a little reluctant because demoting bureaucrat is generally not done unless of egregious behavior... however, I've never encountered a Fandom with so many.
Hey are you still around? I need one last favour regarding ranks. The user "Darklordrr" has the Bureaucrat rank. He hasnt edited since September 2019 when he was a Manager for Dreamscape. He no longer is, and its been adopted by someone else now.
We've asked him nicely to remove his rank, but hes blocked us on all other social media platforms such as Discord. Very distrustful up to this point. Zero communication. I blocked him on the Dreamscape wikia in December because of this issue. We never block people without a reason. And for us its a Security concern as stated above. This has always been an annoying tendency for players who wont give up their ranks. Will you remove his Bureaucrat rank? Emptylord you have done us an amazing job cleaning up our staff list.
Just recently in 2020, he unblocked himself. The reason he did that, was to copy and paste our information on other wikis. For example he used the following:
Emptylord wrote: I have removed his roles from this wiki.
Could you clarify what you mean by "our information" - is he plagiarizing or doxxing? In either vent, please provide a specific example and I will report him to someone higher up the chain.
Not doxxing. Hes used our top navigation, taken a few pages, and directly copy/pasted onto the wikia divination that I had linked. His access to our ACP was the main concern and Im glad you were able to help. Thankyou!
