  • I accidentally added George Shrinks to the American preschool education television series category, I am so sorry.

    • I got it taken care of. It wasn't a big deal.

      When it comes to categories, if you only add them to pages, they're more like placeholders. You can add or remove them as you like. It's when you go to the page for the category and edit it that the category becomes a bit more real.

      Look up at the message you left me. That link for "American preschool" doesn't go anywhere, so if I edit your message to make it just be words and not a link, that fixes that problem. Otherwise, we'd click on it and then start creating a new page to make it real as well.

    This user has vandalized the page of a female character, please revert the bad edits and block the user.

    • It's taken care of now. A block may not be needed, but seeing a real-life person being listed as a PBS Kids character wouldn't be consistent with other animated characters like Dash and Dot.

  • I like PBS and PBS Kids, and I want to know if you know about this...

    There are lots of PBS Kids wikis that aren't included in it and strangely enough, this wiki isn't one of them either. Here is the link to join .

  • Thank You!

    • You're welcome. I usually try to update the automated greeting so it doesn't say what the edit was but haven't done that here yet. If the edit was from a vandal, it's one less thing to fix later on.

      I recommend that you update your profile so it just lists the city or state. What's there now is a little more info than what you should put in, safety-wise.

  • I am a fan of this channel since I traveled to the US, and I actually noticed that this wiki is full of spam, so may I adopt this wiki and so I would clean up everything

    If you didn't understood, these wiki contains other languanges (One is Vietnamese), random images, fake pages, stubs, spam, pedophiliaincest, racism, underaged people, etc. So I would like to contribute to this wiki adopting it and putting a final dot to this spam-bomb

    • A lot of what you saw came from one person. I missed a few days of checking the wiki and it happened to be at a time when he came back. I got a lot of it cleaned up. You can mark anything I missed for deletion.

      This is a wiki I'd like to hand over to someone else. This list of wikis I'm responsible for keeps growing and I'd rather work on wikis I'm interested in rather than ones I'm only there because of vandalism.

      The earliest you could adopt this wiki is towards the end of June due to the block that's on another wiki. One of the requirements of adopting a wiki is making edits every day for at least a week. So if you were to keep working on this wiki for the next two months, it would strengthen the adoption request if you turned one in. It would also give me time to see how you're doing and decide if giving you extra rights here is appropriate. Having Rollback and Discussions Moderator rights is pretty much like being an administrator, without the ability to set blocks.

    • One of the things an admins has to do is evaluating edits to see if they are vandalism or just someone playing around and doesn't mean any harm by it. It gets a little harder with some edits because there's instances where it can be off just enough to seem unusual and out of place or they could be testing to the waters in preparation vandalism later on. The key is to not assume the worst and to give people some leeway if you can.

      You said above you feel there is pedophilia and incest present on this wiki and you put a warning in the comments for Dash's page. I don't know if you intended it this way, but that does appear to be assuming the worst, which might go something like this:

      "People are saying they love Dash and want to marry him. He's an underage kid. That means they're thinking about having sex with him!"

      Giving people leeway is realizing that they can say they love someone or something as a way of showing their appreciation or enthusiasm. It can be nothing more than a way of expressing they like something without going to an extreme that's inappropriate.

      Even when something's more clearly a problem, an admin needs to show respect whenever possible and give people a chance to change their behavior. There have been times when it's clear that a user is going to keep being disruptive no matter what I say to them or do. But in each of these, I give them a chance, oftentimes several, because I know that I could be asked to prove why I took action. Was there no other way to curtail the disruption to the wiki? And that's my goal: curbing bad behavior without doing it in a way that becomes punishment or vindictiveness.

    I have reported this vandal to Fandom staff again after the last 5 months, so hopefully Fandom is safe from that vandal again.
