TurtleWiki Contributor request[edit source]

Hello @Turtle84375:, I am requesting the Contributor and Member permissions on the wiki. Thank you, WikiJS talk 12:33, 21 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

WikiJS Thank you for your interest! I realize I forgot to finish the Request:Account page, I have just done that. Could you answer the following questions:
  • Why do you want to contribute to TurtleWiki?
  • Have you ever contributed to a Fictional Worldbuilding wiki? If so, please list, if Miraheze, otherwise, please explain.
  • Please list any and all bans you have been subject to on any Miraheze wiki (if applicable).
  • Briefly explain why you believe you are trustworthy.
  • If/when you receive Contributor permissions, what do you plan to do to contribute to TurtleWiki?
If you wish, you can submit these from here instead and reply here saying that you did that instead. Turtle84375 (talk) 20:13, 21 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • I would like to contribute to TurtleWiki because as it is an "imaginary" wiki, and I have a decent imagination.
  • I have not contributed to a wiki like this before, but I play games that are about that.
  • I have never been blocked on any Miraheze wiki, globally or locally.
  • I am trustworthy because I have not been blocked, I am a good person, and because I have never broken a wikis policy
  • If I do receive contributor permissions, I will add to existing pages, and make new pages as well.

WikiJS Thank you for answering those questions. Your answers look good to me, and it all checks out, so I am going to go ahead and Yes check.svg grant you Member and Contributor permissions on TurtleWiki. Welcome! Turtle84375 (talk) 23:34, 22 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks! I'd also like to thank you for the credit for the Main Page. WikiJS talk 12:34, 23 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
WikiJS No problem, your request actually reminded me to do that :) Thanks for your credit too, on Memepedia.Turtle84375 (talk) 17:29, 23 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Usage of Template:Uw-username[edit source]

Hi Turtle84375,

Thank you for your good-faith warning of this user; however, as Template:Uw-username forms the first required step for CVT, comprising Stewards together with Global Sysops, prior to locking a user for a Username Policy violation (clear bad-faith violations don't require a warning, but potentially good-faith ones do call for users to be warned and given an opportunity to request a global rename, this is one of those templates that should really be used only by CVT team members. Reception123 was going to add a usage note in this regard, so I'll make sure that was added. Anyway, I've replaced your message with mine.

Dmehus That's something I wasn't aware of, Yes check.svg thank you for letting me know. In that case, is there anything that a common user like me could do if we spot these types of accounts? Just saw your log summary for the page you deleted. Turtle84375 (talk) 06:12, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah, just report them the possible impersonation cases is usually faster. Are you on Discord or IRC by chance? The reason I ask is impersonation cases do get quick attention. In this case, it's quite possible the user account you found is a troll/impersonation case, so in that case, what we normally do is ask the troll user account to confirm via their main account that this is their alternate account. You could probably do that part, but should be provided on the troll account's user talk page. However, we do also like to use the {{uw-username}} template for such cases, so that's why I say reporting is probably best. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 06:18, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus Yes, that makes sense. Unfortunately, I am not on Discord or IRC, and haven't really planned to be so in the near future. Hopefully I can still help out around Meta and other wikis, I'm just trying to do what I can, learning as I go. Turtle84375 (talk) 06:22, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, sounds good. Regarding volunteering, I've got a couple potential wiki creators in the queue to nominate, but have to ask them a series of Content Policy situation-based questions. You could potentially help with that, so if you wanted, you could study Content Policy and Meta:Wiki creators guide, and I could add you to the queue of individuals wanting me to nominate them. Dmehus (talk) 06:25, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus That would be great! Yes, I would like that. I'll be sure to study those pages. Turtle84375 (talk) 06:29, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, sounds good. Thanks for wanting to volunteer! :) Dmehus (talk) 06:29, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus You'll probably want to replace the warning with yours on this page as well, but I believe that's the only other one. Turtle84375 (talk) 06:18, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks. That one ended up being a bad-faith Username Policy violation, so Reception123 locked that one without the usual {{uw-username}}. Usually bad-faith violations will have some sort of edits that suggest the user is just here to troll, but not always. Sometimes they'll have zero edits. It's a bit of a grey area, hence why the preference to let Counter Vandalism Team determine if a warning is required or not and take the appropriate action. Anyway, in that case, I've just Yes check.svg deleted it. Dmehus (talk) 06:23, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus Hm. This is some good info here, I feel like I should be taking notes :) Turtle84375 (talk) 06:24, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
