    I just thought it sounded awkward when I commented there as well

  • Hello! I'm Sannse, from Fandom's Editor Experience team. I'm contacting you as the most recently active admin. Hopefully you can pass this on to others as needed.

    One project that we're excited about launching is an initiative to pair newly registered users with experienced advisors (which they can choose from). These advisors would be available for answering basic editing questions and guiding appropriate edits, in the hope that these users will become active in the local community.

    Why do this, rather than rely on admins and moderators? We've seen from research and experience (both from Wikipedia) that establishing a human bond with a peer "senpai" or mentor can have a better effect on the comfort of the newcomer, especially where the high volume of edits may cause the quick response of rollbacks rather than taking the time to walk new editors through their early work. While some communities do take that time and care among their leaders, we feel an additional level might put new users at ease and help them be more comfortable with editing. Ultimately, we feel like this project will either free up some time for admins and moderators, or designate them as approachable welcomers to talk to and guide new users. We want to see how effective this is on a relatively small number of communities and see if Fandom's results are consistent with those experienced on Wikipedia. If they are, we may pursue expanding the pilot program and perhaps seeking to build it into a core part of the new platform.

    Here's what we would wish for your community to agree to:

    • At least one volunteer advisor, acting as an advisor and advocate helping newcomers. For the most part, this means responding to questions that newcomers leave the advisor in Discussions. Sometimes this may mean the advisor interacts with admins and moderators to address concerns regarding the newcomer. We have some advisors-at-large (those not tied to the local community, but available as fallbacks) already, but if you have ideas on who you might want to represent you in this role (or if you'd like to do so yourself!), feel free to contact me on my Wall.
    • Discussions / Feeds. Your community must have this active for the current solution to work. This is the primary method in which advisors have open communication with the users that choose them. We also recommend a Feeds channel of “Help Desk” where the communications can be placed, if you do not have a similar channel.
    • A change to your Welcome Messages to allow a method where a newcomer can choose an advisor. If you are currently participating in the MyDashboard program, there will be a card there to interact with an advisor.

    We are testing this for the next two months, and will see what the future of the program is thereafter. Is this a program you would feel comfortable with placing on your community?

  • Hey just wondering if that parody was approved to come back onto the Eh Ah Sou page since there was an issue with the user who made it and I see it's popped back onto the page again.

    • Yeah, the blacklist has been lifted. There was just some confusion around the producer who made the parody.

  • I need you to answer this. If somehow I get logged out of my account and can't get back in or if I forget my password, are you allowed to make backup accounts. If we're not then I wont risk it haha

    • Sorry for the late reply.

      If you get locked out of your account the best thing to do is contact FANDOM (formerly Wikia) staff. A second account is something that should be done as a last resort.

    • Sock puppeting, trolling, spamming, name grabbing (yes... Some people have been known to create accounts just to grab certain names in communities) pretty much are the reason there is some issues with multiple accounts.

      You should follow through with what Queen says, because sometimes issues can arise just from mistaken intentions, people think your up to something when your not. However, from experience its not too bad so long as you don't go back to the old account at all. Its basically that "abusing multiple accounts" thing which cause issues. Not everyone with a second account is being honest.
