Anti-Wikia Alliance - offensive?[edit]

Hello! I thing this wiki (Anti-Wikia Alliance) is a bit offensive, and could bring some problems to us... What do you think? --186.19.230.47 02:14, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

People are welcome to find whatever they'd like offensive, and can and will find that and many other things offensive, but consider something Stephen Fry said on the topic: "It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what." People need to get over themselves. --Isarra (talk) 02:30, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for answering :D Actually, I questioned about it because there could be some controverse or something, but I'm glad to see that there's no problem. Oh, and I'm Spanish and don't speak very well the English, so sorry :P --186.19.230.47 02:40, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Anything can make controversy if people try hard enough. It doesn't mean it merits any weight.
The only thing off about your english seems to be the order, since the two languages often reverse the order in which subjects, verbs, and descriptions appear. In this case, a more proper way to say that line would simply be don't speak English very well. --Isarra (talk) 03:11, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Help[edit]

Hello Isarra!

I'm happy to see that you're open-minded and not ready to apply censorship to any impopular opinion.

I have trouble getting some help on the wiki. Could you help me please? I've emailed, posted on the forum, posted on Jack Phoenix's page, but no help, and it's several months I have those same problems. I think some of the staff member are aways, and it's normal, because Shoutwiki is not a firm.

Regards. --PERCE-NEIGE (talk) 09:17, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

For future reference, it's a lot harder for people to respond to things when you don't provide any context, links, or what the actual questions were (as you did here), or when you ask for quite a lot in one massive pile (Jack Phoenix looked into it, and apparently you requested quite a few different things, to the point where it was unclear what some of them were, and others were getting mixed into stuff that was just impossible, making it rather difficult to respond to any of it). If you break things up into separate, specific requests, they become much easier to address and deal with, and to separate out the things that are simply infeasible.

Hello Isarra, I came here to delete my message, because the problem is solved now, thanks to Jack, he does incredibly good work.

It's normal that I requested very different things, because it has been months that I'm with those same problems, as I told you I emailed several time the staff, but got no answers. So I waited, waited, because I know that the staff is very busy, and can't reply as fast as they want. And then, I contacted Jack, but only after writing emails, posting on the Shoutwiki forums, trying to contact on Phabricator, and everything I could do. So I don't think you can reproach me to not be patient or to ask for different things. I contacted several mods, and now I go on their page to delete my message, as Jack resolved everything.

And once again, I don't complain, it's normal that the requests take a long time, I understand it very well, but when you get no answers, it's normal you try to contact every admin, to make the things progress more quickly. I don't reproach anything to Shoutwiki, it's the opposite, I'm very happy with your service, especially with Jack, that is very polite, nice and helpful. Just when I got some trouble, I try to make the things progress, and it's perfectly normal.

The impossible request are also normal, because I'm only an user, and I'm forced to ask question to know what is possible or what is not possible. The things that are impossible, I understand very well when they are. I don't understand what you reproach. How could I know it's impossible without asking? I don't have the knowledge you have about running a wiki, I only try to learn.

I broke the requests into numbers. So one request could be answered, solved, or considered on hold or impossible, without replying to all the requests. I cannot publish one message by request or by extension I ask. There are 3 or 4 main requests: To add extensions, to be able to have a partly private wiki, to solve a problem about a bot, and to solve a problem about 2 extensions.

I don't understand what you reproach to me. Shoutwiki needs to be more clear about requests, if there are a particular way to present them. Using the form, as you know, don't work for the moment. Should I post one request by request, one message by request? I think it's a kind of flood, so I prefer to group them, I don't have requests everyday, just problem I need to solve because they're accumulating. See my older request in the forum was on March, and I tried to send emails a few weeks before using the forum to post my request, I also tried to use Phabricator, because I didn't get at the time its use on Shoutwiki (maybe it could be clearer, or maybe it's just me). I didn't know how to get help, because it's the first time I ask for help since I'm on Shoutwiki.

March: http://www.shoutwiki.com/w/index.php?title=Forum:GoogleDocs4MW&oldid=29660

I'm a very understanding and willing user, I understand how hard it is to run a site like this one, willing because if you tell me to follow a procedure I will! I don't want to annoy the admins by my requests, but I do only when I'm not able to solve the things by myself. I do a lot of researches before asking something, I don't ask everything that is in my mind at the time it comes in my mind. So I will follow a procedure, but only if someone told me the procedure. If I don't know it, I can't be blamed.

Sorry for the annoyance about my requests.

By the way, just asking for other problems, on another site, are you a Uncyclopedia's admin?
