Plan on sh*t posting? Here's why it doesn't work.
How's it going you greasy wh*res? Head admin here and I wanted to touch base with all of you to let you know how we do things here on the Wiki. I will also be describing how some people just aren't that smart in general.
But I am also here to let you all know, that if ANY of you have any questions, need assistance, or if someone is being a c*ck sucker, never hesitate to hop over to my talk page and I'll take care of it. Just be sure to talk at me first, since Randomtox is on a haitus, so everything needs to go through me before it goes to him anyhow.
Subject #1: Why Trolling/Spamming/Sh*t Posting Never Really Works Here
It's rather funny when people think because they do not have an account with us, that they can destroy our pages and be completely undetected. There has never been an instance where we've never been able to undetect someone, even after multple edits to try to "cover up tracks" we've still been able to find every single one.
There is no such thing as a permanent deletion of anything on our wikipedia page and nothing is ever completely covered up. We're still able to see pages we've removed ourselves last year, and we're even able to see edits as well as comments done far back since the article was published.
That being said, anytime anything is vandalized, we can still put a stop to the people doing it without the person having an account, so you really wont get too far except for 15 mins of fame (unless that's all you wanted, then great, but you still wont get much further!)
My tip for our contributors is to NEVER ENGAGE with these people! (Don't feed the trolls) Just go straight to our talk pages to report the incident and we'll get right on it. And no, your comment can't be deleted by them either, because we'll know and we will still see it even if it was! (It's happened before, and we still got 'em!) My second tip, don't play along with their games either, because it may get you banned in the process and we don't want that to happen especially if you've given us great contributions.
Subject #2: Leaving comments
The comments that happen most often are people bitching that there is information missing from an article. #1: Quit being lazy #2: Don't moan about it #3: Add the information in yourself. It's not the admins jobs to add all the information, Wiki's are a public source that can be edited by everyone, so when you leave a comment whining that there is not enough information, we're ignoring it, and I encourage everyone who actually contribute to the page does too.
This also goes to show that here at the Wiki, we do believe in freedom of speech, however, freedom of speech does not mean freedom to be an arsehole. We do take a stance against going on the actors and actresses pages and leaving harassing comments either physically, sexually aggressive or anything deemed abusive. This page is made for the fans of Trailer Park Boys, and talking terribly about an actor/ess on their page only makes us seem like we're haters rather than fans. If you hate them, that's fine, the solution would be to make your own blog about your hate for them. We are cracking down on those who talk horribly about the people who make TPB a great show. However, that doesn't go to say that you can't talk about their character, like saying "Randy is a Cheeseburger Walrus." Because he is one! But that's a lot different than calling one of the actors horrible names and threatening them.
Subject #3: The articles are not your personal diaries.
Some of the visitors here mean well, however, I find it strange that one would destroy an article just to type a question or a problem they have. You have a few options for that.
#1. Use the admins talk pages if you have a question for us, or visit the help pages.
#2. Post in the forums if you have something on your mind.
#3. If it's something nice you have to say about the actor/ess's, leave a comment in the comments section of their article.
Otherwise, there is NO REASON to destroy a pefectly good article just because you need help with something or wanted to say that "Lucy is gorgeous and doesn't care what anyone thinks." That will end up getting you banned for good.
In Conclusion: We certainly love our job as admins (at least I certainly do!), it's part of our job to remove sh*t content and sh*t apples from the Wiki, so there are no complaints here, but the main purpose of this is to let those who plan to troll on a wikipedia page know is that you wont get too far! So if you're going to troll, you might want to pick a better place, or you can take a one way trip to f*ckoffity land! :P
Any questions, like I said, leave them on our talk pages! So keep it up on those de-ee-EE-cent contributions and clean ups!
