Lock the wikis for a time?

Postby Elkfryn » Sat Aug 29, 2015 12:28 am

Can the wikis be temporarily locked from editing? Some douche keeps messing around with the Demon's Souls, Dark Souls 2 and Bloodborne wikis. The Dark Souls one seems to be free of his trolling, likely indicating that he's some rabid Dark Souls purist.

I don't have the power to lock the wiki, but I'll inform the site administrators. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

The douche in question is lkdsjfa and the page I can confirm he has been persistently sh**ing up is the Magic and Miracles page. Everytime someone fixes it he comes back one second later, erases everything and posts his dumb macro image. Ban ASAP

And taking a look at his editing history it seems that Dark Souls 1 has actually been targeted by him as well, so it's no purist, just another dumb troll out of millions: http://www.wikidot.com/user:info/lkdsjfa

Yeah, it is one of the people we just permabanned recently for flaming on these forums. I guess he's upset.

Unfortunately, my moderator powers do not extend to the wiki. I've e-mailed BertoSan, one of the administrators, so hopefully it gets taken care of. Again, thanks for bringing this to our attention, and sorry I can't do anything about myself.

Currently, at least anonymous editing is locked. Unfortunately, the content of the page
http://darksouls2.wikidot.com/weapons
is deleted. Could someone with appropriate permission revert it?

Anonymous and even editing with accounts is locked. Especially the last part surprised me a little bit.

It's just temporary, Stooge is working on it.

I have a long history of making good edits to the wiki. Is there a way for me to get moderator status so I can continue my contribution? Thanks, B

Yes, I am working on the situation. The lock down is only temporary. I had allowed registered wikidot users, but the douchebag in question started making fake accounts. I've since discovered that an admin CAN ban an IP. It wasn't in an immediately obvious spot, which is why I just resorted to a lock down. My son is going to take on an admin role on the Wiki as he is almost always online, and so can react quickly to issuing an IP ban on a user. I've just got to get him setup and show him what to do.

Sorry for the inconvenient. And yes, there is always that one person that just has to screw it up for everyone else.

Thank you for the update, and for creating and maintaining these fantastic resources to the Souls commmunity. I've been noticing a lot of small errors. Once you get the situation under control, I'd still like to be considered for a moderator if you're okay with that.
