Please report any rule violations in this thread. Notifying us of such incidents is highly appreciated.

Additionally, kindly report any sockpuppets that you come across.

Only report violations regarding the wiki rules. False reports due to personal vendettas are unacceptable.

Also, this thread should be for reporting actual rule-breaking, not every single little disagreement.

In cases of extreme vandalism or trolling, you can report the accounts at the VSTF wiki.

If blocked members create sockpuppet accounts to circumvent their block repetitively, or several are created at almost the same time, you may contact the Fandom Staff, to politely request permanent range IP blocks.

You can also find specific users with the Search Function by typing with the format: "User:Username"

Here is a useful page for discovering sockpuppet accounts: https://vsbattles.fandom.com/wiki/Special:Log/newusers

Notes:

All staff members, kindly follow and bookmark this thread.

Remember to inform members via their message walls if that you have reported them here, in case they have performed severe enough rule-violations to risk being blocked. However, this should only be used in uncertain cases, not if they have done something instantly ban worthy, or if their offenses are minor.

It is against the Fandom rules to upload any offensive images to the wiki, so in order to show screencapture evidence of extremely bad behaviour, you must use external sites, such as Gyazo or Imgur, in order to not get globally banned yourself by the higher-ups:

https://gyazo.com

https://imgur.com/

https://pasteboard.co

Do not derail the Rule Violation Threads with irrelevant nonsense or internal disputes. It is solely for making serious, warranted reports of violations of the Site, Discussio, and Editing Rules, and not for discussion or side comments. Such posts should preferably be removed by the staff, and if a member continues to derail after being repeatedly told to stop, this will result in a temporary ban.

Given the extreme levels of systematic harrassment towards this community, kindly remember to not share/post any evidence of malware or child abuse publicly in order to prevent unwillful distribution. Submit any evidence of child abuse and severe systematic threats to the police.

If something goes outside the jurisdiction of the VS Battles wiki bureaucrats, or even the global Fandom staff, you need to report it personally to the authorities.

Also, absolutely do not click on any random links from suspicious users. You could potentially access content that contains dangerous malware or illegal types of pornography, alternately tracks your IP address and location. If you are uncertain, please use this page to verify that the links are not dangerous.

However, do not feed the trolls by discussing their behaviour here, as they get excited and motivated by any form of attention. Strictly report them to the staff, who then block them and mass-delete their contributions.

If there are genuine serious problems with the behaviour of certain staff members, do not cause drama by extensively arguing about it here, but rather contact the Human Resources Group.

I also agree permabanning Missy would be too much. But given how he has continued doing the exact same thing after being told many times by staff to stop, in addition to already having been banned in the past for not listening to warnings, a ban is totally needed, a couple of months at least.

I disagree. If banning him once didn't do anything, why would a second ban?

But I am not running the wiki. I am more like an organiser and general handyman janitor. NoGround is higher ranked than me, and the Fandom staff are above him, and above them there is the CEO of Fandom. It is ridiculous to obsess about me to this degree for several years.

Not from an outsider's view. You're always the one who makes the essential threads (IE. The RVRs), you're the one whose word is (usually) treated as final, and your opinion is highly respected by everyone. As far as as bored internet trolls can tell at a glance, you're the boss.


Also, ableism.

Considering the fact that you are by far the most active and most watchful of site policy (And a bureaucrat) it is probably why they assume you are the "manager". It's not like trolls really care about the actual order of staff anyways.

But I am outvoted a lot of the time, other staff members can easily overrule me in a group, especially bureaucrats and administrators, and I am not giving anyone orders. I am not acting like any real boss, and I do not have the best sense of judgement. I am just working hard to keep things running.

Yes, but I am not some sort of overlord, I am not giving orders, and I have never claimed to run the wiki. The CEO of Fandom runs the wiki. I am just an unpaid janitor.

Okay. I will drop this then. I just find the entire situation very weird, given for how long they have been at this.
 
Simply put, you're a figurehead. Even if you possess no more power than admins, you're still one of the most active and visible members of the administration, and trolls don't really care about who's actually in charge, just who's the most visibly important.
 
When it comes to people like them it doesn't matter how ridiculous it is, their hatred burns far longer than it reasonably should. Thus they attack the person that seems to be in charge, or just the person most likely to see it.

You just can't expect a logical explanation, I was the same way, trying to figure out why people act in such ways, and the simple answer is that human actions are not always rational. Emotion can lead people to do drastic things, and emotion can burn even long after the stimulus fades into the past.

They are hiding behind the anominity that the internet provides, leading them to take bold actions, and take out all their hatred without any level of thought put into it. They feel like they act like inhuman monsters due to this anominity.

Don't blame yourself or make yourself believe that it is you that made them do this, or upset them this much. That is what I learned to do on the internet.

I don't even think this is a "they" issue. I think this is probably literally one guy with way too much free time in quarantine. The naming patterns are the same (always a meme phrase or something directed at a mod), they don't switch up their MO in the slightest, etcetera. Their first instincts always seem to be to flock to the Death Battle thread and the Goku vs Cat Noir thread. We know they hate Fire Emblem and Smash, for some reason. We also know they have a tendency to spam porn.

With those quirks out of the way: Ant, since this seems to be directed at you specifically, is there any one person that you feel could be doing this? Anyone who fits that description that has done that in the past?

Yes. Let's drop this. For the record, I think that they have been bothering me and others in this wiki for around 3 years now.

Don't know if it's the right place here but it'll be fastest to get help from here, sorry if i'm making a mistake

I made a fairly big crt for a verse that hasn't been touched in a while, thinking i could get some discussion for it going, but A6colute immediately shut it down

That's accurate. He didn't give any chance to debate, going off the single post on that thread.

Regarding staff's report, they should be brought to Human Resources Group as stated in the first post of the thread:

  • If there are genuine serious problems with the behaviour of certain staff members, do not cause drama by extensively arguing about it here, but rather contact the Human Resources Group.
The discussion on this topic here should stop.

Not really, revoking an administrator takes much more than one simple hostile thread Because if that was how we treated admins Cal would have been permabanned ages ago

He got two complaints that included immediately shutting down threads because he just did not like them. That is severe enough for real action. We can't coddle the staff here, they have a lot of power and need reasonable punishments for misuse of it. Not just a warning.

After looking over some if his threads... wow.

Revoke his Admin status. If he can't handle the power, he can't have it.

What he did was pretty straightforward higher power abuse and dictactorship, however we need more peoples and staff to discussing if he need to be revoked

Do not derail the Rule Violation Threads with irrelevant nonsense or internal disputes. It is solely for making serious, warranted reports of violations of the Site, Discussion, and Editing Rules, and not for discussion or side comments.

Do you all understand, that you violate rules?

This is not irrelevant nonsense. You have blatantly acted in a way that justifies a Rule Violation report. I say that no rule is being violated. Everyone here is blatantly talking about what your violation was.

You have been reported for rule violations. I believe this qualifies under the rule.

Rule has violated. May be you should care more about rules than about some personal matter?

Yes, this indeed is a rule violation. Asking for his thread to be reopened here makes sense. Potential demotion stuff's more the domain of HR, so if you've got a bunch of other offenses of his you should send them to me or another HR person in a PM.

Last I checked, abuse of power is Rule Violation.

Every report in this thread is "abuse of power is Rule Violation".

Rules have not been violated. This is no personal matter. Abuse of power and closing someone's thread by saying their thread is ridiculous without giving them time to respond is a blatant abuse of power. Especially when they gave legitimate reasons as to why they thought the way they did.

Every report in this thread is "abuse of power is Rule Violation".

And rightfully so.

Buddy, don't even start. I didn't even know what you existed until you got reported. Then, I saw what you did first hand and gave my input.

This isn't a beef. This is me doing my job.

At the end of the day, insufficient reasoning was given to close the thread, and a link to a two year old thread doesn't mean you just can't ever revise this verse. No, it was not against the rules to report him. The issue arises when the RVT turns into a hundred posts of arguing. If further issues are happening, take it to HR instead.

If A6 starts re closing the thread that's going to be an issue though.

As funny as that was, I'll have to remove that comment. It really doesn't add anything. This is a senitive enough issue without side comments.

LimitBreakerX is a troll. Ban at will.


@Blue

Actually no. He's only voted on the Bowser one and appeared in the discussion thread. He's still a suspect.
