So, there's no hiding the fact that myself and a handful of other users haven't had a smooth time over the past few weeks.

I want to make sure everyone here is aware of something that was emailed to me today - the humbly titled "Dark Spyro Accurate Edition Wiki" located at http://darkspyro-accurate-edition.wikia.com

This website has stolen art from here at darkspyro.net and is maintained by a handful of users who, I guess, think they're important enough that they need to have a wiki dedicated to their history here at darkSpyro.net.

With that said, some users have taken it upon themselves to spread their message of hate across the internet.

Looking through a couple of the so-called articles there, I see there's more than a handful of users from here who have derogatory pages up about them. I don't know a lot of y'all on any kind of personal level, but I wanted you to have a chance to review this site and, if applicable, take the time to edit or delete any information about yourself off of the site.

I'd like to point out that most people that have a page on the wiki asked for one in the first place, just in case you didn't already know that.

As for the derogatory things on the different pages, I understand why you would be bothered, as someone had put in a nice little thought of me on mine.
(though I found it more humorous than bothersome)

Also, what "stolen" art? I'd like some examples, if you don't mind of course.

And one other thing... It's not that the users who maintain the wiki think they're "important", it's something that was done for fun, but also, as the name of the wiki implies, to be as accurate as possible.

Obviously since anyone can edit it, stuff like this is going to end up on there none-the-less. If you have such a big problem with it, just edit your page.
It really shouldn't be a big deal to you in the first place, at least in my opinion, though.

The wiki site has been around for a while, and there are bound to be users who add their say onto one's user articles for fun, even hate. You realize on wikia you can edit your own pages right?

This is similar to an old topic of yours when Bahamut posted your name under a list of people he doesn't like on his guestbook, and you made a topic about it on the Site Help.

I don't want to say it's a "big" deal. But, it did give me the last push I needed to realize that some folks just aren't worth dealing with.

I posted to make sure folks knew it was there (I didn't until I was sent an e-mail by someone this morning). Not only will it allow them to edit their individual pages as you suggest, but will also give folks a bigger picture of some of the people they deal with on a daily basis.

There shouldn't be a page on you unless you requested it. In a situation like this, the page would be taken down. Since you didn't want it.

Aura, I don't know if you're the one that created the page, but if it was, please do not create pages that you don't have permission to create.

The only pages that are created without the users' permission, are users that are Ripto. And if they asked if it could be taken down, it would.

I haven't been able to keep track on the Wiki since is hard as **** to edit on mobile. I would appreciate it if people would treat it as a place where you can find info of those that allowed it. And not be used to attack others.

If you find something regarding you that is not to your liking, talk to one of the editors or edit it out yourself.
If you find something regarding another user that is not to your liking, talk to that user and see what they want to be done.

Anyone can edit. There's no 'should', if X guy wants to edit with a certain user, the only thing stopping them isn't permission but if someone else isn't deleting it. And that isn't DS, it's just a wiki. If in here people are allowed to make others invisible, just block yourself from visiting there.

I was not the one who created the page. I simply edited it for the fun of it.

Along with what wspyro said, the wiki is meant to be an unbiased description of users. That page and snippet you gave us fails to do that and shouldn't be allowed on there to begin with. It should be a history of the user's actions and what happened to them, not opinionated statements like "he has a superiority complex".

Additionally, when the wiki was created and the first batch of users got pages, it was done through an interview process with the 3(?) people in charge of the wiki and its pages. Allowing anybody to add them whenever and edit whatever they want just leaves it open to vandalism or self glorifying.

It's great to see there's more folks who understand that this isn't behavior exhibited by civilized adults. :D

If someone who has an account on that site wouldn't mind, I'd be grateful if someone would delete the page "about" me. I do not authorize it and don't feel that I'm so important that I need a special page dedicated to me. I know I could register for an account there and delete it myself, but I really don't want to go through the trouble. I have other stuff on my plate right now. :D

No hush. The pages are still there and with the harsh wording? Then it's time to edit it yourself, because the mods probably know by now. After yesterday I think it's needed for someone to solve the harassment by themselves if others will just hide or ask for Dark to do it for them. Again, the wiki is there to be edited by anyone with an account; if someone keeps putting the harsh back, go talk to them if they can make it a little nicer so it doesn't cause drama here, or go change it on your own.

I think even as a guest you can edit the page to leave it blank until someone with authority to do so deletes it outright.

I don't feel important either, but that's not why I had a page made for me.

Yeah. No account needed.
Pages can also be locked, but I'm pretty sure no one wants to reach that.

Yes. We already established that.
Good on you to know, though!

Yes, very good. Too bad UncleBob can't see me trying to help him on that and will keep on insisting that someone else needs to edit the page.

I tried to send a request to delete his page but my phone just can't get a clear view. I have a bunch of templates out of position plus an alert message telling me that the editor is not supported on mobile.

I can't help UncleBob either!

Not really. I posted multiple times on that site asking to have the page removed, but others kept adding "fun" stuff on the page "about" me.

Unless people are using it to make fanfiction, I still don't see the purpose of a wiki for the users. If it's to complain about other users without being caught, pretty sure some people mentioned it's done in tumblr enough.

Yup. I'm amused by some of the sad rants I've read out there. :D
