Please report any rule violations in this thread. Notifying us of such incidences is highly appreciated.
Additionally, kindly report any sockpuppets that you come across.
Only report violations regarding the wiki rules. False reports due to personal vendettas are unacceptable.
Also, this thread should be for reporting actual rule-breaking, not every single little disagreement.
In cases of extreme vandalism or trolling, you can report the accounts at the VSTF wiki.
If blocked members create sockpuppet accounts to circumvent their block repetitively, or several are created at almost the same time, you may contact the Wikia Staff, to politely request permanent IP blocks.

No, I have not. I am already in correspondence with them about more important matters regarding the overall protection of our wiki. In the previous thread, I just mentioned that it is best to contact them or VSTF about these types of issues.
Hop suspects one is a Mikoto sock puppet. Hop has seen one of those on a wiki one of our admins frequents. Will keep a close eye on Malikobama1 (possible meme/troll account) and Djifj one. Totally a spam account. Hop will watch chat for them.
Proxy32 sounds like a sockpuppet no doub about it. Proxy? A term for literally sockpuppeting online? Pfft, what a joke. Keep an eye on the ones with contribs already. They seem to be most suspect.
I do not know. They have not been very helpful so far regarding this issue (I have been asking them for increased wiki protection, and expanded admin tools to combat our constant stream of sockpuppets), but I am hoping for the best.
I have now been told that, as a first step to combat our constant sockpuppet problems, the official Fandom staff will lock the wiki, so that only members who have been here for 4 days of more can do anything. If our problems continue, they will likely use greater measures.
You guys should have really already know it's her still doing this by now, right? Kind of pretty obvious considering I at least know she's obsessed/ or really likes FE, Card Captor Sakura at least, and Yu-Gi-Oh!. Plus having a dislike of how the wikia here rates certain characters (ex. Being Tifa's Tier despite the reasoning on there).
And this is the only time I will say this. Talking to her about doing these kinds of acts really will not change her ways. And here, I thought people would learn that by now...
But anyways, that's enough of me on this again and thus, just move on from this again.
I would suggest that another admin reports her and her wiki to the official staff. However, I am already involved in a discussion with them, so I would appreciate if somebody else, who is good at clearly describing the problem, handles it this time around.
That's if anyone really wants to bother with this, Ant. I already did mines a while back, but I'm not doing it again of this. If anyone here really thinks this is a problem, which i guess it is, they need to step up and actually report it to them.
@Star: I saw Rep doing it again after Mik made another comment to another off site. Don't care about how you say so whatever.
You and OishiLover have a tendency to disrupt chat with repetitive questions and nonsense, remarks towards users that are unrelated to the discussion you were even having and it is becoming bothersome.
The problem is, this isn't a rule violation per se and we've been lenient with you two because you are generally well behaved and are not ill intentioned. However several staff are becoming fed up with the special treatment you guys are recieveing so I'm asking you both to simply settle down. We can't be lenient forever.
@Sera Okay as I think you guys have a fair point. I will stop discussing things with you guys if a lot of people think of it that way. I even ask Hop to ban me from chat so this is already been resolved.
These two have been bothering me for weeks now. They know of my current problems in real life yet they still bother me. I am tired, even Ant has told them to stop. Oishi asked me "does a dead body get cold after it's been dead" even though he is well aware I just recently lost two family members three weeks ago. A question he could simply type into Googlel among various questions about if I read some manga or watched some TV show episode when I told him I am in mourning and I have not been reading anything several times now. Starkiller isn't bad and I didn't ask for his ban, he did. Oishi is a different matter.
I'm sorry if I am overracting but I've been holding this in for too long.
Starkiller215 did indeed ask me to ban him. I supplied it. Hopefully things get better soon.
As for Darkmon, he needs to be told to stop commenting all over these RV threads, because all it does is add nonsense and clog it up. Just a warning is fine, but I could swear Ant told him not to in the last one or in RVT VI. He gets involved with things he doesn't need to and this should have a punishment. We've already had him be warned earlier in this thread.
As for Oishi he has become much more of a nuisance in chat than last year. Continuing with the odd questions out of left field, and furthermore began recently to ask questions that emotionally bother staff members and some of us do have bad memories we'd like to not remember, but Oishi keeps asking about "why is a dead body cold" and other eerie topics.
@Dragon I ask Ant to ban me from the wiki and his exact words from that thread is : "That seems unnecessary." I didn't know that Sera will just unleash her personal wrath on me as I tried to stop bother people as it is. Idk what is going on at this point in chat to make things considerably worser things.... This is something I deserve for.
@Sera Ahhh another misunderstanding.... Remember how a single misunderstanding can happen? Also constantly draggging? I feeling guilty at this time. I was trying to not get involved with any of you guys with my affairs.... I am really bad at this.
Edit: I blame everything I have done as being wrong hence I felt extremely guilty in this emotional instability.
Your problem is that you tend to go overboard in apologizing and tend to be too harsh on yourself. It's okay to feel guilty about doing something wrong (I know this all too well myself) but you should not be so harsh on yourself. You're a good fellow and a good member of this community.
They made this page with little to no explaination of the Low 2-C tier, and futhermore the page was poorly done (lack of spaces, incorrect bolding, improper linking, etc.) until I cleaned it up. But they're new so this might've been just a mistake.
I have asked what was their reasoning for the Low 2-C rank and have yet to get a reply.
"I started a discussion on Trish's healing factor on the Vs Cancer Wiki's page."
On the user's profile here they even claim to be a fan of DMC and the Youtuber "Zimatorn", which is the youtuber who created the video where this comment was found (Said Youtuber also happens to powerscale DMC a lot), so I believe it is safe to assume that the user on this site and the commenter are the same person
About this most recent ban....I know it's understandable why it was done (Heck, I'm the one who reported it, but I also only did it because I know that we have banned for offsite offenses)...but I can't find anything listed in our rules about anything off site, should we add a note about bashing the wiki on other sites resulting in a ban if we know what user you are?
EnderShadow215 (formerly Starkiller215) keeps messaging me on FC/OC for some reason. From what I've read it ranges from wanting to give his input on various threads here (some I haven't even commented on) to apologzing to me again for things I don't remember. It's starting to bother me and I already have a lot of traumatic stress as it is. What's worse is he links me his little brother's Facebook to "get back at him" which is very unsafe (considering his younger brother, Sans with Shades, is a member of this community.) and I have no idea what I have to do with any of this.
I don't know why he keeps messaging me for hours on another wiki or for what reason. Is he banned here or something? I've told him to stop weeks ago but he keeps on.
Apparently, he's going through some kind of depression for what he claims. Though now seeing this? I really don't appreciate him doing that, especially on a wikia that while i may have not been active there much due to my own problems, is still a place that i want to have where people don't cause shit up at all.
In any case, and i apologize to you on this for not doing anything Sera, i think it's best to ban him to prevent him from doing anything like this to ya.
Edit: Nevermind, Dragon's got it. @Dragon Thanks and hopefully you can take care of it man. I'm just not understanding why this guy is even doing all this. It's really getting on my nerves if he doesn't stop this behavior anytime soon...
No, that's fine enough. That should give him some time to chill off. I'd rather not have him come back sooner as, once again, MY PLACE on FC/OC is not a place for people to harass or cause shit/drama there.
The problem is that the medicines cause him to lose any semblance of self-control, so he just keeps on disturbing me, despite repeatedly promising to stop. As such, I do not think that banning him from just one or two wikis is going to make much of a difference.
You do realize he had bothered and harassed Sera on MY WIKIA, right Ant? What he did, even if unintentional, is not acceptable.
My place there, though i have not been active there a lot as i use to, is not a place for things like that to happen. So Dragon banning him was the best we can do. DK about here, but there? Definitely needed to happen.
Okay. I am honestly hoping he at least gets help and just not use the wikia anymore or at least for a while. Whatever he's going through, it's just not healthy and good of him for what he had done recently.
I deleted the pages they made that were horribly formatted and am currently fixing those that just need cleaning. There's a recurring theme I'm seeing where weapon profiles created by newcommers are badly formatted. That's odd considering thete's a standard format for them just like for characters.
I like to report Assaltwaffle Although his argument is very reasonable and many of them I agree with, the way he present it is very obnoxious and a bit disrespectful. He also link to video with vulgar language which I personally doesn't care but this website doesn't have age restriction, so some random kids can just find it. It wouldn't justify just to ban him over these little action but a warning is perfectly fine.
@Woodgod, What part of his revision is disrespectful? I will agree that the video link may have been unnecessary, all Waffle did besides that is bring up reasons as to why he believes the stats are not truly justified by using examples
"Why is the Fallen and Satan's foot this fast? Who knows!"
"What even is this? Not only is this, once again"
And the link itself:
He basically trying to be all witty and sarcastic. I'm totally down for him to bring reason and argue with the stats, some of this I'm agree with but he can do it in nicer tone and not sound like a jerk.
It seems that he is only saying how there is no justification for the stats and only assumptions in what may be a little but of a "witty and sarcastic" manner, perhaps someone else should get a look at the post itself and say their own opinion, as the only thing that I see wrong with the post is the link itself to a small extent
EDIT: Considering Ant's warning was firm enough, I offered to help the guy. I try to view both sides of the coin and he doesn't seem to be intentionally doing this on purpose. Some people just start acting out when they feel like they are being unfairly treated, so its only fair we hear him out.
I'm sorry but that is overthinking it. It's logic like that which makes us weaker as a community. I simply offer to help. There is no harm in that. Being on the internet makes little to no difference.
As staff we are generally overworked, however that gives us no right to dismiss someone due to asking too much questions or get upset when they continue to ask questions because we did not answer them properly. We have various policies and it is our responsibility to alert someone new if they are unaware of these policies and the responsibility of the individual to read each policy thoroughly.
If no one is willing to go that extra step, then I will. I have the patience to deal with it.
This thread is not the place for discussion. You're bringing up things that are irrelevant to how Daishinkan is behaving. He doesn't have some mental problems as far as we know. He just felt like he was being treated unfairly due to being ignored. True or not, I'll help him if there's any problem. This is not up for discussion unless he outright continues this behavior or breaks another rule entirely. Nothing I said was hypocritical. Right and wrong? What are you going on about? In any case if an admin wants to ban him they have the authority. But since no one has responded to this thread I'll take that extra step. I don't see why this is such a big deal.
He has all the right to say that it isnt the time to discuss something like this because it isnt, this thread is primarily meant to report rules violations not to make each and every one a thread of their own. If you wish to talk more about such a thing simply a make a thread relating to the issue at hand but dont attempt to bring something like this into the lime light at this moment because it isnt the place or time.
The fact the thread got derailed already kinda prove even after three seperate warnings. All three warnings made by Dragon, Scarlet, and even Antvasima yet he ignored them as well, which to me, make it even more questionable.
@Ant: When a person gets multiple warnings like that, including one that's a bureaucrat such as yourself, I think it's safe to say that he should be banned. Having three warnings and yet never learn from them and continuing to give that user warnings just shows we're being too lenient.
@Scarlet: If he does it again, he'all get a ban for sure this time. Though then again, I didn't see Akame's victory or something over on Zoro's page as I assumed he took it out due to that not being on the formers page. Regardless, he maybe given a temporary ban if he does it again without permission.
Done, I've given him three months at the very least for now....as well as more reason for me to dislike this kind of leniency that you guys keep putting in despite warnings and constant mentions of when a user is acting annoying and obnoxious like that.
After looking through NXGN's contributions, they have had the same attitude since he joined, and doesn't even bring any "actual" contributions to anything, except saying "No you're wrong" with reasons already debunked
Given his constant thread making of Arceus, having multiple warnings at this point and still ignoring them, and even so much as making a message on wall going "lalalalla ha" as if to mock all of everyone here (i deleted due to how rude and insulting that was, btw), i have decided to ban him for 6 months.
What do i say about people getting more warnings yet the ones who receive them don't listen? You are to then ban them. Being lenient or not doing so sooner when they show signs of not improving themselves just lead to them being more than mere annoyances on this wikia.
@Soldier: Basically, the guys been constantly making thread after thread about Arceus having Existence Erasure when, even though he technically has it, the only thing he's done with that, AFAIK (don't take it from me), is erased some boulders. As well as him ignoring the fact that having something like that is not impressive for Tier 2's.....at least from what the others have said such as Radical.
Other than being weird, he hasn't truly broken any rules nor has he used his accounts to cause trouble......so far. At least AFAIK of him, that is. Anyone else whose kept a a close eye on him can say something that idk of....
I too also noticed this of him, i just don't really bother as long as he doesn't piss anyone off here.
He needs to use the first one, then. We can block the 2nd one after he confirms the first one is primary across his devices. He really does not need two, and it is not hard to log in from multiple devices, or reset his passowrd.
Besides, this, I was under the impression we were strict with sockpuppet/multiple account users, regardless of intent. I was careful to do so with Antvasima months ago when I was locked out of my main account and Fanfiction, in which I asked to have that account blocked, as I have ample security and access now.
Trust me, you arent overreacting with this course of action. Stevie may grow to be much more irritable in the future then he is now, relating to this he also breifly clogged up chat with saying we were unfair to digimon before making the spite thread Kukui listed.
@Aku Could you post evidence of this? However, he is clearly biased and his arguments revolve around Bloom winning because of "irrelevant non-haxed power number 1,2 and 3"....And then saying "i told you digimon not that good!"
Antvasima wrote: You can give him/her a warning, if you wish.
Hey Ant, for you not to be as stressed or spend too much time here. I think you should give the staff some more free authority to lay down the law (in a fair manner of course) as they see fit. Admins by default should already be doing this, moderators should do so as well and run it through other admins if they want a 2nd input.
Yeah and that's a good thing. But I'm only saying this cause I feel a lot of them don't need to be discussed and since you're the most active here it's quite a load on you since I've seen even admins here ask for your input. Of course all up to you.
User:Joshua.foote.14 seems to have been quite an issue on DBF, and has been banned under the reasoning of "Intimidating behaviour/harassment: Sparking bad blood; harassment of other users and moderators; major spam; constantly adding useless banter onto other conversations and pages. Abusing multiple accounts to dodge a ban."
Not saying ban just yet (Though I wouldn't mind), but at least keep an eye on him.
Yeah the way he's going doesn't sound exactly good with how his comments are.
I agree to a warning but any further comments he makes like taht above that Weekly provided, a ban will have to place then. How long, idk. But do keep it to how you see fit if his actions become even more of a problem.
I don't know if this is against the rules but Gargoyle is trying to direct youtube harassment on me when i commented about the infamous zimatorn who rants and hates on this wiki on a fun and games thread that coincidentally he created himself http://vsbattles.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:701652
On comment #260 he openly says that he is a fan of Zimatorn. On his latest video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6-vs0wHgOs he comments with his G+ account "Andrew Rogers" and says "You were mentioned at the end of one of my threads, The continuation of ignorant statements" which obviously pinpoints him as gargoyle since he created that thread and the undoubtable intention of the comment is to get him to check it out and make a video on it. Im not looking for him to get banned but strictly warned. I made this because i would've made an atrocious warning on his message wall if i wasn't encouraged by Colonel to report here.
before I say anything I am in it in no way supporting the guy you posted. But I would like to say drama outside of wiki jurisdiction should preferably stay outside as so the problem doesn't spread to the site. If you and this dude are having issues you can private message him on those sites or ask him to stop bothering you here and see if he listens. Other than that problems outside this wiki should not be extended to us as it is not our domain.
Well, on the one hand our jurisdiction technically ends with this wiki. On the other hand, I know what it is like to be harrassed by a troll because of our work here, so it feels wrong to allow this type of behaviour.

If the troll pesters the guy here we could immediately block him if you so desire. As for the other domains, contacting the staff on their site would be the most appropriate measure to ensure he no longer bothers him on those sites.
You have mocked and hasaccused us of favortism twice . You have stated you cannot take us seriously. If you don't trust us, go somewhere else. Heck you pretty much treat us as a dictatorship since you believe we will just ban you over having a different opinion.
All you say is opinion when in fact you are insulting the site because you disagree with the ratings. You assume it is due to bias, but in the end you still haven't done anything to fix the problem aside from complain.
Yeah, even though I have absolutely no motive and it's on a wiki I've never had any desire of being on (and only that one wiki too) and never tampered with his account outside of one case of insulting said wiki...which....I've never been on and therefore would have absolutely no hatred towards said wiki and have no reason to insult it, I honestly don't even care about Creepypasta, I'd rather keep my spooks out of my spaghetti (much less a wiki about only one of them)
I have no motives whatsoever, people need to figure out things about someone and then blame them.....or maybe not act like a fool in the first place
