Re:IP[edit source]

No worries, if it happens again let an admin know so they can protect your page so only people with accounts can edit it. 9xFavoY.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 18:38, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

@Scuzzy Beta: Thank you! Firecracker (talk) 18:40, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Protection[edit source]

Hey, I didn't realise your account was under 4 days old, so it wasn't autoconfirmed yet. I've changed the protection back to none and will just ban any other vandalisms. Talk-to Kelsey 18:45, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

@KelseW: Thank you! Firecracker (talk) 20:35, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

RE:Regarding grammar fix[edit source]

Hey, no worries about that, we were all new at some point. Also when adding talk page messages, make sure to add a separate header for each topic/conversation. Talk-to Kelsey 21:46, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

@KelseW: Thank you for the heads up! Firecracker (talk) 22:35, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

RE:[edit source]

Yeah you're completely right what was I thinking lemme go block myself on the sister wiki (OSRS) real quick. iN008talk 22:18, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

@IN008: Stop pretending to be an admin! Firecracker (talk) 22:21, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
https://oldschool.runescape.wiki/w/Special:Log/block?page=User%3AIN008 I've gone ahead and blocked myself don't you worry :)
@IN008: From what I know, you blocked yourself on the Old RuneScape Wiki, not here. In future, please do not spam other users' talk pages. Firecracker (talk) 22:24, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
on the contrary, they are very important messages that I trust my fellow admin with. 9xFavoY.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 22:25, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
@Scuzzy Beta: I read the article about user talk pages. As long as you are okay with it, then whatever. It is just weird that you put a block template on User:IN008's talk page. Thank you in advance! Firecracker (talk) 22:29, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Patrolling other users' talk pages[edit source]

Hi Firecracker! I've noticed you're trying to revert some messages on other user talk pages because you think they're spam. This is really not necessary -- it's okay for people to post memes and other pictures on talk pages, even if they're not directly related to the wiki. Thanks! ʞooɔ 22:29, 18 March 2019 (UTC) (head admin)

@Cook Me Plox: Thank you! I am very serious about spam on this wiki, and want to do a good job by ensuring that this wiki is a user-made encyclopedia, and not a playground for vandals. I will be making sure that there will be no spammers! Trust me, I'm serious, it's my goal here, as well as becoming an admin, sometime in the future, perhaps. Firecracker (talk) 22:33, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Apology (my mistake)[edit source]

@IN008: Sorry! My bad! I thought that you was spamming User:Scuzzy Beta. But, apparently, he was fine with it. Just remember though, I am on the look out for vandals, and I will report them to the admins, if necessarily. Again, sorry! Firecracker (talk) 22:39, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Categories[edit source]

Hey there. I see ye've been altering categories. The reason why those categories have a pipe and a blank space is so that in the category list they are sent to the top of the alphanumerical list rather than being buried under their actual alphanumerical listings, as they are considered to be the main articles of those categories and need prominence rather than obscurity Ciphrius Kane (talk) 17:36, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

@Ciphrius Kane: Good to know! Firecracker (talk) 23:28, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

Advertising[edit source]

Your talk page messages have been reverted because they meet our criteria for speedy deletion.

Advertising and spam. Posting random websites links doesn't contribute positively to the wiki.

Thanks, but please do not spam people with links to wikis that they did not ask for jayden 00:30, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

@JaydenKieran: Okay, but how can my wiki grow without any contributors? Can you help me by giving me advice? Firecracker (talk) 00:32, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
You should target your wiki towards people who are interested in it, rather than those who aren't, like probably a good majority of editors on this wiki. ShoutWiki wikis might also show up on Google too where you can gain contributors. They have a few IRC channels that you can join where I assume they'd let you promote your wiki. jayden 00:37, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@JaydenKieran: Can't you help? I don't know what I'll need. What stuff do I need to add? Two hands are better than one! Apart from ShoutWiki and Miraheze, do you know any other wiki hosting sites that runs with the MediaWiki software? Firecracker (talk) 00:42, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
Try Gamepedia or Fandom. jayden 00:46, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@JaydenKieran: My wiki is supposedly meant to be about plants, not about games. Any others? Firecracker (talk) 00:49, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
Fandom is not just for games. You never know, they might even put some nice videos of plants on your wiki for you. jayden 00:50, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@JaydenKieran: Okay! But I prefer to use Gamepedia, because it uses vector. So, people can also patrol my wiki for spam and I can have admin rights? Can't you join? You seem to have a lot of experience and could be useful. Firecracker (talk) 00:55, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
I'm way too busy with the wikis over here and frankly I couldn't care less about plants jayden 00:57, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@JaydenKieran: Thank you! How can I contact Jimmy Wales (founder of Wikipedia)? Firecracker (talk) 00:59, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
Try his talk page on Wikipedia. jayden 01:00, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@JaydenKieran: Have you ever contributed to Wikipedia? Firecracker (talk) 01:02, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
Yes jayden 01:04, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@JaydenKieran: Shall I just advertise my wiki via social media and YouTube? And, was Wikipedia your first wiki that you joined? Plus, tell Jimbo that I am his biggest fan! Firecracker (talk) 01:10, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
