I was just passing through and noticed that the videos you have on the right column of the main page aren't actually working anymore. Do you have a sense of some up-to-date videos that would serve as good replacements? People do like to press working play buttons these days. :)
If you don't have time to find new videos, that's cool. Just give me a push in the direction of some good 2018 topics for videos and I'll have a good ferret around YouTube for 'em. Thanks!
Okay :) I replaced those three vids with three of the newest trailers from the official channel. You're right about the front page needed to probably refocus on MHW as opposed to MH4U. As you probably know, there are a number of vids about the various new weapons. Could make for a more focused, left column featured video area, were you so inclined. You've got a good Discussions area going; that could be surfaced, as well, since most of those discussions pertain to MHW.
Eh, listen to me. Thinkin' like a main page designer or something. Anyway, lots of avenues for you to think about as you consider how to redo your "lobby". :)
The discussions page has been getting a lot of new users, likley from the fandom app. While this is great, it's also bringing in increased amounts of spam, and we don't have any discussions moderstors to regulate content. While admins like yourself can, and do, clean up the pages, I think that having one or two dedicated discussions moderators present on the discussions themselves would be a good idea to not only ease the workload but to respond more quickly to matters that arise. I'd gladly volunteer for the position, as would a few other regular users.
Furthermore, I think that we should expand upon the community discussions guidelines. Currently, it only mentions leaks, hacks, datamining, etc., but it would be good to include policies for spam, low-effort posting, argumentative posting, and nsfw content, all of which is becoming an increasing concern with the surge of new users brought in by MH:W.
Thank you for your time, I look forward to your feedback!
A vote would be good. So long as the appointed mod(s) are active on the discussion board to remind newcomers of expected conduct and warn those who aren't following community guidelines, anybody would be a big help. It might sound stupid, but just having somebody around with a blue sticker next to their portrait is sometimes enough to make a difference, even if they're just talking.
Do you, by any chance, know how to go about adding features to the wiki? I'd like to get category filters set up in the discussions to help organise it, which is a feature that other wikis already use. I've asked fandom staff about it, but it's been a day and I still haven't heard anything.
We've identified the Barnos wiki (http://monsterhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Barnospage) as popular enough page for a video. Our main concern is that it's lacking in the content department. I realize the game hasn't released yet so more info is sure to come soon. In case we might have missed something, we wanted to take a moment and involve the community to see if there's any information that they know of that hasn't been posted.
Oh well, I don't know if I'm supposed to create a new account to tell you this, but I need to explain you why I was keeping posting the leaked image, first of all I thought it was allowed, the first time that the post was erased, I though it was a bug or an internet error, so I posted it again, then it was erased so I did it again (that is the reason of my block right?), then you could see that I post antoher thing asking why my post was erased (because I DIDN'T know) and then you throw me the Hammer of the ban directly to my face, look I need you to understand that I didn't know that talking or posting about leaks wasn't allowed, and that no one adviced me about that, yes is my fault (I didn't read the wiki rules or the guidelines) so now that you know this, would you forgive my mistake or will you block this account again? If you are going to do it, I need to say goodbye to some people here... Hope that you could understand
Since he hasn't responded yet I think I may explain.
Creating a new account to get past bans is ban evasion, which WILL lead to another ban. This rule does not just apply here, but pretty much everywhere on the internet. So you may want to say goodbye to those people. Only reason you haven't been banned yet is because Kogath is currently busy with real life things. It should have also been very clear about the policies about leaks, since Capcom actually has people who contact Kogath about what and what not to allow on the wiki. It's your fault alone that you failed to read the rules.
If you wanted to discuss the ban, you go to community central with the same banned account and ask him about it there, though honestly your chances of getting unbanned are very low now.
I may not be an admin here, but I am one for the Fanon Monster Hunter wiki, so I have knowledge about this situation.
Abusing multiple accounts, especially to get around being blocked, can get you blocked at a global level for all of Wikia. Go ahead and go back to your original account, and please be more mindful of the rules from now on.
I wanted to check in and see how things are going for you, this community and the Discussions feature. It's pretty active there, with on-topic posts and what looks like a solid subcommunity. No big problems, but there's a small backlog of reported posts and I think creating some categories could help things be better organized.
As you may have seen, we have a user group now "Global Discussions Moderators" who may be able to help things get to an even better place. Would you be interested in help from some of them, to get things a little more structured, identify some Discussions users who might be good moderators, and help build more of a relationship with the wiki community?
Eventually the Forum will be merged into Discussions, so the two communities will be interacting more anyway. That migration not going to happen anytime in the near future (we'll give you a heads up well before it happens) but it would be good to keep that in mind.
Let me know what you think about getting some help! Thanks.
