Dfhhgfhakamenridershitlord replaced some words on Mitsuzane Kureshima's page with some profanity. I get it that Mitsuzane has become insane on the show but this has gone too far. I just had to revert his edits.
Toku fanon was founded to eliminate this problem and Rangerboard and other sites are great for debating stuff like this.
As for the rules, I find comments that users cannot see them when we have to use the 'ol banhammer. While the Style Guide is in plain sight overhead in the Community section, it probably wouldn't hurt to post them again on the front page for those looking to find out how our wiki works.
Disrespect is certainly in play here, though that could've been due to Gundamfan99's frustration to the constant delete. While I admit that a simple glance at the Rules section would notify him/her that it's not okay to discuss stuff that doesn't pertain to the construction of the wiki, I find that that the two week block is somewhat harsh. The person literally joined on the KR wikia since June 04, 2014. I was thinking it could be lowered to one week due to this is probably just a huge misunderstanding that escalated due to the negativity that the other user experienced with his/her's questions being deleted.
Except that he posted it on 3-4 pages/walls. And called the admins incompetent (which he has no way to know), acts like he could do a better job (what a first impression!), called people he literally just met only 1 year old because they were asleep and enforcing the rules he agreed to abide by, erroneously referred to a lack of a response as an attitude problem (something cannot be an attitude problem if it does not exist), etc. No, two weeks was being generous and it is our expectation he will behave himself upon his return.
It would be nice if we just told users the rules and the reasons for it when their edits are reverted (or at least the ones that are like Gundamfan's (the fanfare or overly eager kind), not the ones that just leave junk like purposely wrong information or obscene images). This could clear up some misunderstandings like what happened here. It's a thought but still worth thinking about.
The unfortunate truth is that people simply don't seek out the rules, or if they do, they simply refuse to abide by them. When you go to the store and buy a new computer program, you have to accept the license agreement (i.e. rules of use) for it. How many people honest-to-god actually read the license? If they download a program, it will have the license shown during nstallation. Again how may will read it? We could tell the users the rules when edits are reverted, or put them on the main page, or send it to their e-mail (presumably). Doesn't mean they'll read them. As the saying goes, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink. The only ones who will read and follow the rules are the ones who want to make good use of the site and the information it provides. Everyone else, like this guy, will not - and then complain when they get punished. Fact of the matter is nothing we do can/will make them read the rules, even if we shove the rules in their face.
So I was wondering what I did with Kota's page was actually OK to do? (The History portion) I simplified his History and broke it into sub sections using that Tabbing thing, splitting it from TV Series | Other Appearances, which I think is a lot more convenient considering that the original Kota page was cluttered with useless information before it got flagged to be revised.
I am happy that Nbajammer is doing the clean ups for those pages. If you have seen the history of the edits, you noticed my exasperation at those who wrote up the previous edits. I was getting really frustrated with the grammar and spelling errors that were continued to be made. I understand then and now that some of those people don't speak English as a first language, but I wanted them to try to improve their English writing skills as the grammar errors were making the articles look unpolished.
Nbajammer's summaries have well written grammar and are concise. I support the clean up effort.
