Link to Wikia CVN channels

Would anyone object to having a link to the Wikia CVN channel(s) here? Ajraddatz Talk 05:12, December 10, 2009 (UTC)


I'm sorry, I don't know where to report this. I AutoAdopted the Nyan Cat Wiki so I could try to manage the vandalism problem, but now that I'm active it's just got worse. Almost every day someone posts derogatory and inappropriate content on the wiki and I just feel so overwhelmed by it all. I don't know if this is the correct place to report this, but I've got to try something. WarriorLoverInc 01:34, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

Link fixes needed on main page.

On the main page, the first sentence says "The utility wiki for the Volunteer Spam Task Force and users to report spam and vandalism." The links for spam and vandalism take you to Help pages, rather than the Report pages where both can be reported. —RRabbit42 (leave a message) 19:42, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

Can a pointer be put in on the main page for where to list 'duplicate wikis and similar', and also 'mis-spelt and (computer-generated) snarly-up titles'? Jackiespeel (talk) 16:50, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

Duplicate wikis are fine and allowed by Wikia. As for the 2nd one, if it's vandalism, it belongs on the vandalism report page, if it's just a wiki with a bad name, it's fine as long as it's not a vandalism/spam/troll wiki. ~ty 16:56, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

I recall seeing a 'for duplicate wikis see (link)' somewhere - and I was thinking more of the 'Satr Wars...' immediately followed by 'Star Wars...' type of duplication.

'Ordinary mis-spellings' irritate those of us whose work includes proofreading :)

Out of curiosity - how easy is it to get a mis-spelt heading corrected?

An example would be and

I have nothing against several wikis on a given topic (different viewpoints etc) - but there seem to be many 'duplicated and almost promptly abandoned wikis.' Jackiespeel (talk) 17:30, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

Still allowed. Misspellings aren't VSTF problems. ~ty 17:51, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

As I said - looking to be pointed in the right direction (if known). Would 'a couple of questions' during setting up a wiki - 'Are you setting this wiki up to promote your company/mainly talk about what you did last week' types filter out some of the nuisances? (A 'please retype your wiki name' would prevent the second aspect).

Jackiespeel (talk) 18:04, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

The first one isn't a VSTF issue. The 2nd one can be Special:Contact'd. ~ty 18:07, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

I presume 'XYZ College Wiki' and 'ABC's project' are OK with Wikia (or will be deleted due to inactivity in due course).

Will wait a while before putting in the next lot of 'ancient potentially deletables' :) Jackiespeel (talk) 23:59, January 19, 2013 (UTC)

'Adopting VSTF Wiki' requests

There are occasional requests for the above.

There are also requests to join VSTF.

Perhaps there could be a 'VSTF Fanclub Wiki' for such people? Jackiespeel (talk) 17:34, May 22, 2014 (UTC)


Add a statement to the effect that 'If a wiki is potentially salvageable alter what you can.' - with a note what to when there are some pages that need deleting (and the user does not wish to adopt the wiki). Examples would include [1] and Toronto Wiki respectively. (The former just needs the main page replacing with 'something from the Wikipedia page - I have left it for show). Jackiespeel (talk) 16:57, July 21, 2014 (UTC)

May I ask a question about i18n pages?

I appreciate all you have done for us.

May I ask a question about home page? ―― Would you add Japanese i18n home page (SOAP Wiki/ja)? (Because we can get little information about VSTF in Japanese language.)

I asked about it to Rappy 4187-sama at his message wall ( ), but I have no response maybe because of my poor English and something.

I'm sorry I added SOAP Wiki/ja page without your permission, but I thought it is hard for me to ask about it without this page. So, excuse me, would you erase this page if we shouldn't translate home page to our own languages? Thank you. --Plover-Y (talk / KirbyWiki / WLB Wiki) 2015-01-30 23:54 (UTC)

No problem! Thanks for the addition. Enabled it here. Sorry for not replying as of yet. It's been a busy week. ;) Rappy 23:55, January 30, 2015 (UTC)
Rappy 4187-sama and Jr Mime-sama, Thank you very much for adding the Japanese i18n page! And we know you and staffs work hard for us, we appreciate all your help!!--Plover-Y (talk / KirbyWiki / WLB Wiki) 2015-01-31 00:00 (UTC)

Thank you for always helping, and would you add Policies/ja, too? I knew the Policies page at w:Help:SpamTaskForce ("Related links" section), but I don't know which page the Policies page is linked from. (I think SOAP Wiki doesn't have the link to Policies.) And I wish someone correct my translation. Thanks, --Plover-Y (talk / KirbyWiki / WLB Wiki) 2015-02-14 06:47 (UTC)

Added to the Policies page. Let me know if there are other links that need to be added as well. Thanks for helping with translations! Ajraddatz (Talk) 07:58, February 14, 2015 (UTC)
Ajraddatz-sama, Jr Mime-sama, thanks a lot for adding the i18n page!--Plover-Y (talk / KirbyWiki / WLB Wiki) 2015-02-14 23:31 (UTC)
Thank you for translating :). — Jr Mime (talk) [VSTF] 00:00, February 15, 2015 (UTC)

Hello, and would you mind if I ask to add Membership/ja? And, sorry, maybe I wasn't able to understand what is "The last thing you need to be is burnt out." mean. Does it mean "VSTF members must work very very hard (if I give an extreme example ... till they take karoshi)"? we always thank you, but we wouldn't like you to work so hard.--Plover-Y (talk / KirbyWiki / WLB Wiki) 2015-02-22 08:30 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the translation. "The last thing you need to be is burnt out" basically means we do not want you to overwork yourself to the point where you don't want to do it anymore. 22px-Logo.svg.png22?cb=20160405123310 22?cb=20170831223041 15:26, February 22, 2015 (UTC)
TyA-sama, thank you very much for explaining (and sorry for misunderstanding)!! And, Jr Mime-sama, thank you for adding the page again. --Plover-Y (talk / KirbyWiki / WLB Wiki) 2015-02-22 23:00 (UTC)


On the report spam list - what does 'mime' mean?

Should there be more reasons given than just 'spam'? Jackiespeel (talk) 22:45, March 24, 2015 (UTC)

Checked by me lol. Anyway, for your reports, you have to enter the wiki URL instead of the page you are on. For example, this page is, you'll put "vstf" instead of "/Talk:VSTF_Wiki". Thanks! :) — Jr Mime (talk) [VSTF] 22:56, March 24, 2015 (UTC)
'Category of things which are obvious when pointed out'

Whichever way I add the links seems to #not work# :) ('Category of person who wants to get back to exploring the wikiaverse for interesting wikis')

The 'Lifestyle' category (on new wikis) seems to be a common category for 'inappropriate wikis' (and would [2] be VSTF? (Perhaps there could be a 'bad taste, dubious, and not in the spirit of Wikia' category ... but I am not into 'Wiki-development and programming and developing it myself'). Jackiespeel (talk) 17:34, March 25, 2015 (UTC)

Feel free to report that wiki to staff via Special:Contact/general. 22px-Logo.svg.png22?cb=20160405123310 22?cb=20170831223041 14:16, March 26, 2015 (UTC)

I'd like to ask a question again... would you mind if I translated header texts of "Report Problems" pages (e.g. "You can use this page to leave reports of spam you have found. Please leave a link to the wiki as well as a link to the spammer's contributions. ..." on Report:Spam)? --Plover-Y (talk) 2015-08-18 17:41 (UTC)

Thanks to TyA-san's response, I translated some pages. Would you please add them? Thanks! --Plover-Y (talk) 2015-08-22 05:23 (UTC)

Some of these pages needs to be deleted, some of them seem like spam. Also, I heard some complaints about the Administrators on the IRC Chat really aren't helping much so you might need to fix that.

Could you please make a report on the Report:Spam page? Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)


I was just wondering if there was any such thing on this wiki, like a VSTF noticeboard, or administrator's noticeboard, or something. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 03:09, October 13, 2015 (UTC)

The report pages are something like a noticeboard. You can find them here. :) --Rain (talk) 15:35, October 13, 2015 (UTC)

Adding formal notes to report pages

I was wondering whether it would be valid to add formal notes at the top of reports pages, informing users that only VSTF should be removing reports made by other users. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 08:02, October 14, 2015 (UTC)

It's not usually an issue to worry about imo. 22px-Logo.svg.png22?cb=20160405123310 22?cb=20170831223041 18:11, October 14, 2015 (UTC)
Well, judging from your response, and from what I've seen, most of the users that remove them are bad faith vandals and/or trolls, and adding a formal note probably wouldn't do anything to discourage them. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 04:42, October 15, 2015 (UTC)

Report a wiki button broken

The report Wiki button is broken at the VSTF wiki. When you report a wiki and hit submit, the submitter is taken to [3] where it appears someone deleted the Action=purge template in January. It does appear to add the reported wiki however, but the error should still be fixed. Reguyla (talk) 20:47, May 5, 2016 (UTC)
