I usually make a point of checking the wikia every day, just to see if a new vandal shows up.
What the vandal does depends on the kind of action that results, if they mess up a page one time, I just protect it for a month and see what else they may do.
However, if they consistently mess up a page, then I block their account, since they aren't here for any helpful/constructive reason and I'm not interested in reverting every malicious edit they make.
Generally though, I usually don't discuss minor issues, but if a big one comes up that all moderators need to be aware of, that one I will notify them about.
Example, there's a major dispute that happened across the wikia network about a week ago and it related to Bunk'd, if I see that conflict migrate here, then that we will have to discuss!
I normally recommend that if someone is interested in becoming part of the Wikia staff, that they begin by making daily edits for 2 months, then apply to be a Content Moderator.
If all goes well, then the decision to promote to Admin can be reviewed.
On Luke's page, his birthday was written as November 2, 1999, and his "biological father" is written as Roy Olson when I only remember his biological mother being mentioned. Was this ever confirmed by the show? I don't think it was, but I could be wrong if it is I don't remember one hundred percent. It could have been speculation written by a fan. If so, I request the birthday to be deleted and probably replaced with "c. 1999" and the dad's name to be deleted.
Yes, so many fandoms I've seen, especially Disney Channel ones, have many common vandalisms like false middle names or false birthdays that fans invent, or statements like "[Character] is so hot and sexy." It drives me crazy. I'm an admin on The Good Luck Charlie wiki, and there is a troublesome common vandalism on the page for Teddy Duncan. There was a rumor spread that her full name was "Theodora Rebecca Duncan" even though this was never ever confirmed. People still go onto the page and change it, up to the point where I had to protect the page indefinitely! I will let you know if there are errors on the locked pages, I'll just fixed the ones on pages that are unlocked. Thank you!
Ah yes, I forgot about the false middle names, seen that kind of vandalism most of all.
I recently got in a edit war with someone who kept insisting their fake middle name was true.
I would have speculated that Teddy's name could have been Theresa, but would have never claimed that as an official fact and definitely would have never made an edit stating that to be true/factual/canon without any supporting evidence.
Babe Carano from Game Shakers is the one I was most curious about, I asked if her full name was Babette, but apparently it is not, she's just Babe.
It's actually very common, other websites that are not Disney owned/operated have said the exact same thing.
I think it's something to do with copyright protection laws, if someone from outside the United States country is trying to watch the show, they interpret as meaning the show isn't available to watch in the country of origin.
Of course, when examined properly, that doesn't really hold true, since I can watch these shows anytime I want on Disney Channel Australia, I just have to wait for them to be broadcast.
So I'm really uncertain why they don't let me watch them or why DisneyNow Australia doesn't host the episodes.
At least two other fandom/wikis have referred to her as Jessica, so for now, I'm assuming this is her full name.
Which episode it was that revealed this information, I am uncertain, but G.I. Jessie would be a good place to start, since it's the only episode that features her father and it's a consistent gag for sitcom parents to yell their child's full name when irked with that child.
Can you please state the episode in which he is identified as Lucas?
There have been a lot of false name insertions lately, so I need to see the episode for myself to confirm it's not another false name.
I just finished watching the episode.
At no point in the episode is he called Lucas.
There are two scenes where is sounds like he is though, when Luke says "Luke does" and Jessie says "Luke is", because they're delivering these words fast, it could have resulted in someone mishearing the name spoken.
Thanks for letting me know.
I've restored the pages to the time they had a last legitimate edit and given them a temporary protection time as well.
For the vandal, they just earned themselves a permanent block from editing on this fandom/wiki.
There's been a few severe cases of that here over the past few months, hence why serious vandals aren't given any leniency.
I suggest you should delete these comments. I think 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 and Ben Newman should not continue posting their comments. There contribution privileges should be taken away.
I would also like to add that some users are not staying on topic.
