I've cleaned out the old talk and put it into a seperate page. Dronian (talk) 01:13, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
Main page redirect Edit
I don't understand why you're reverting the edits on the redirects to the main page. I'm making it redirect automatically to what is in MediaWiki:Mainpage because it contains the name of the actual main page. If we ever decide for whatever reason to change the name of the main page, then all the redirects will work immediately and we won't have to change anything. Mark Otaris (talk) 02:20, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
- It's a smart idea, but there's one problem. The redirect you've made with the MediaWiki template doesn't work at all. Dronian (talk) 02:23, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
- Alright. Dronian (talk) 02:28, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
Obsolete comments... Edit
Could you clean the Special:DoubleRedirects page from all the items in it that contain "@comment" when you have time? It isn't exactly that important, but it'd clean up these broken comments and it'd also clean the maintenance logs at the same time. --Mark Otaris (talk) 05:03, December 4, 2012 (UTC)
Alrighty. Just let me finish some Skyrim quests and I'll do just that. Dronian (talk) 05:08, December 4, 2012 (UTC)
And done. The Double Redirects page is more cleaner than before. Dronian (talk) 05:31, December 4, 2012 (UTC)
New Background Edit
I like the new background! In the future can you please contact either Ajedi32 or I before changing it.
Alright. Dronian (talk) 02:29, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
Exactly 1000 unused files... Edit
Right now, there are exactly 1000 unused files: Special:UnusedFiles?limit=20&offset=999.
That's a lot of work for you. Of course, not all should be deleted, as some may still be useful, but most should. I wish I could help you, but, unfortunately, I can't. Instead, I'll try to work on other things like orphaned pages or stubs. --Mark Otaris (talk) 02:53, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
Alright. I'll go through them and delete the ones that stand out the most. That'll get rid of a few. Dronian (talk) 02:54, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
And I already found a problem... most orphaned pages are item pages. If they were things like pages about scripting concepts, or building, or the website, etc, then just adding links to pages would make them not orphaned anymore. But when it comes to items, it's a bit harder. For example, take Catalog:ACSII White; I don't think there is any page in the whole wiki that should even contain a link to it. As for making an index of hats, that's out of the question: that's what categories are for. --Mark Otaris (talk) 02:57, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
Hm. That's quite odd. However, if there is an item that is a retexture of another, we could link the two together, getting rid of some orphaned pages. Dronian (talk) 03:00, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
I just realized why there were and still are exactly 1000 unused files: the Special:UnusedFiles page only shows up to 1000 of them... which means there are probably a lot more.
Oh, that's great. Dronian (talk) 01:40, December 6, 2012 (UTC)
Protected pages Edit
This wiki has a lot of protected pages, and I think something should be done about it. Many pages, for example, were indefinitely locked many years ago only because of vandalism.
Normally, pages should very rarely be indefinitely locked. Pages (other than very important pages like the main page) should not usually be locked in prevention of something but rather be locked to solve a problem. If a page has no vandalism problem, it shouldn't be locked just to prevent a possible future vandalism attack.
I think a cleanup of locked pages should be done; pages that do not really need to be locked should be unlocked. Of course, if a page is really critical to the wiki, if a template is used on hundreds of pages on the wiki or if a page has been vandalized recently, it shouldn't be unlocked. But otherwise, it really just should.
Currently, there are about 25 locked blog posts. That's very funny, because blog posts are actually only editable by the person who created them and by administrators. Special:ProtectedPages?namespace=500 --Mark Otaris (talk) 02:21, December 7, 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure WHY the blog posts would be locked, unless the creator kept editing it to get points. Dronian (talk) 03:09, December 7, 2012 (UTC)
The most ironic part of it is that the creators of all of those are admins (either Colgatecity or Ajedi32). Therefore, protecting it really changes nothing, since everyone who could edit it before can still edit it after and nobody new can edit it. Mark Otaris (talk) 07:15, December 7, 2012 (UTC)
The page: http://roblox.wikia.com/wiki/EliteOfCrossroads shouldn't have been deleted, just saying, he's generally famous.
Template:Citation needed deletion Edit
I appreciate all of the work you've been doing on the roblox wikia. I was wondering what your thoughts were on deleting the citation needed template? I had made that page in the hopes of encouraging more accurate information on this wikia (although it appears that the page didn't catch on), would you not agree that creating a system similar to that on wikipedia would be beneficial to the accuracy of the information here?
00:20, December 14, 2012 (UTC)
Background removed Edit
The community came to a consensus on chat that our theme sucks. I've removed the background for now, reverting it to what it was two weeks ago. Please don't add the background back without community consensus. Thanks, • • •
Hey, I just checked, and I found out that Roscape created a vandal account in late July. Look here for the account he created and it's contributions.
Aha! It all makes sense. Roscape says he was Malcolt3 in his profile! So it helps to that he actually deserved the ban. Dronian (talk) 22:10, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
I think i know why my page got deleted, well not really, could you explain that to me please.
184.108.40.206 20:55, December 20, 2012 (UTC)
May I please know why my page was deleted?
- You're not famous.
Concerning message walls... Edit
I have looked at the page you sent me a link to, and what I see is that only 5 people voted, out of which 4 said that they loved the new message walls and 1 said that he didn't care. That means nobody hated it. I'm therefore not sure I understand. -- Mark Otaris (talk) 04:58, December 22, 2012 (UTC)
I misread a poll. Dronian (talk) 05:03, December 22, 2012 (UTC)
Oh. Well, anyway, I don't think it really matters, because only 5 persons voted, and I don't consider polls as a reliable way to take decisions. If we were actually able to know who voted on them and to restrict them to logged-in users (anonymous users who have never used a message wall or a talk page before should not be able to vote on which they prefer, obviously), then they could be good, but otherwise, they're just too easily manipulable. I could add 50 votes to any option of my choice on any poll on Wikia simply by using a proxy switcher. -- Mark Otaris (talk) 05:08, December 22, 2012 (UTC)
- Talk pages are easier to use and make our wiki have a better appearence.
Concerning the Clockwork Wiki project... Edit
I think you should move the blog post to a page in the Roblox Wiki namespace. It's a project and it doesn't really belong in a blog post. We could then discuss it using the forum. Mark Otaris (talk) 23:14, December 24, 2012 (UTC)
Is Making Negative Edits Considered Vandalism?Edit
BlasterBuilder, a user with one edit, changed an article about Iron Force, adding many negative comments. I'm not sure if this is considered vandalism or not, but I thought I'd point it out.
Before His Edit: http://roblox.wikia.com/wiki/Iron_Force?oldid=73563
Yep, that qualifies as vandalism. However, it's rather old and the user doesn't go on the wiki anymore. Dronian (talk) 01:56, December 26, 2012 (UTC)
- Note that making positive edits in the same way would also be vandalism. Both consist of inserting bias into the page. Pages on this wiki should be neutral, and therefore, inserting statements that are either in favor of the something or against it is vandalism. --Mark Otaris (talk) 02:00, December 26, 2012 (UTC)
Concerning the infoboxes... Edit
The descriptions of the player, place and group infoboxes should not be the descriptions set by their owner. They should be a description written by the editor adding the infobox. The only cases where it should be the description from the ROBLOX website is when it is the description of a catalog item, like a hat, gear, package, etc.
There are many reasons for this. The main reason is that there isn't much to say usually about catalog items, which is not true for players or places (most hat pages barely contain two paragraphs, while pages about players or places are usually much longer). Another reason is that the descriptions of items are endorsed by the ROBLOX staff.
This means that descriptions of places, groups and players should not be the description given by the player, but rather a description written by the wiki's community, that describes the element in question. Mark Otaris (talk) 23:04, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
Please do not allow the "Hack Advertising" page to be reverted.Edit
Hello. I am from the Globeofgeek.com staff. A while ago a few members from our site thought it was a good idea to create the notorious ROBLOX Studio DLL. This has been horrible for our site, and we are constantly flooded with ROBLOX members seeking expoitation software. The site in no way endorses ROBLOX exploiting.
I recently cleared our name from the Hack Advertising page on your wikia, but it was swiftly reverted. It would be in everybodies best intrest if your community stopped trying to turn our forum into an exploiter kongregation. Thank you.
- May you please show some evidence that you're a staff at Globeofgeek.com.
- UPDATE: Just looked at some of your edits on the Hack Advertising page. It would be appreciated, staff at Globeofgeek or not, that you do not add notices like that to the page. It's not informative. Thanks,
- I appologize for the notice; we figured that the page was not of any good use for anybody , and most of the people who would come upon our website via that page would be young enough that they would only surrender their attention to large letters.
- I'm Ethan from Globeofgeek.com. http://forum.globeofgeek.com/showthread.php?tid=34
- We temporarily cleaned our forum as we are rewritting our site, but a good 10,000 posts in our trash archive are regarding ROBLOX exploitation. We'd appreaciate any help you can give us.
- Well, I think a notice on the GlobeofGeek forum will do.
- Within ten minutes of clearing our forum, somebody joined with the username 1x1x1x1, and tried to post some chat "exploit".
- We've been fighting the flood of ROBLOX users seeking exploits for two years now. We're tired of this and we are trying to break as many refrences to GoG from ROBLOX affiliated websites. We hope you understand.
- We don't actually need a page on "hack advertising", we already have a page on exploits, which, at least, is accurate. While I would normally oppose removing information at the demand of a concerned subject (in this case, Globe of Geek), the page is really terrible and the information is really not important. Thousands of users have exploited on ROBLOX and the users from GOG aren't really worth mentioning. --Mark Otaris (talk) 01:55, December 30, 2012 (UTC)
- I understand that you prefer not to remove information based on a complaint, but GoG being refrenced on the Wikia is in nobody's best intrest.
- How about we stop spamming up Dronian's talk page, and move the page into exploits. Please, take it to the discussion if you have a problem.
- We've been fighting the flood of ROBLOX users seeking exploits for two years now. We're tired of this and we are trying to break as many refrences to GoG from ROBLOX affiliated websites. We hope you understand.

- Ok you are right though
Tiff or Nick has been vandalizing several pages. He vandalized TwoShue. I had to revert it. He also vandalized several clothing pages such as Olive Trilby etc. Can you please block him indefinitely?
Nice try. Dronian (talk) 03:55, January 9, 2013 (UTC)

Quick Request Edit
Can you please remind Wywulf to not create random place pages without putting the necessary work into them? He created the page "Be a Parent,Kid, or Pet" (Yes, including the comma space error) sometime last night or early this morning, and because of him not putting the effort into making the page look acceptable by the Wikia's standards (such as no infobox, a description of the page only two sentences long with hideous grammar, etc), I will possibly have to spend the rest of my morning making the page look somewhat acceptable if the mods do not delete the page because of the obvious grammar error in the title (it should be "Be a Parent, Kid, or Pet").
Hey there Edit
AHHHhhhhhhh..... nice day buddy isnt it feels good to be back and helping the wikia out. :)

Not unless he has 100,000 place visits, has a very popular model (over 10,000 takes or something, I forgot the exact limit), owns a group with over 10,000 members, or makes videos with at least one having over 10,000 views. Dronian (talk) 00:41, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I noticed you removed the RoGo Magazine page a while ago. I can not see a reason why, as it has over 5,000 members. I understand it didn't have quite that many at the time, but I was wondering if you could restore it. It has also been featured in RGC 2012 as a nomination for best fansite.
126.96.36.199 01:00, February 6, 2013 (UTC)
Hi Dronian, i got a question. Why was the JamToast page deleted? Leave me back a reply on my talk page. UPDATE: Also, I saw a page that was created that talks about a person with under all the required stats needed for a page. Could you check that for me? The page is RyanDolan123. Thanks. Tehblakdeath (talk) 14:21, February 7, 2013 (UTC)
- JamToast is not a celebrity user (100,000 place visits) that neither Dronian or I are aware of.
The old Urban Assault Forces page was dobed outdated by the HRs, so I was put to the heavy task of recreating it. It was deleted because of copying the old one, but his is just an updated version. Please restore, and if anything, delete the old version.
Well someone needs to make a edit to his page claiming he is dead. There have been multiple administrators claiming he has died, SML, MCA, GongFuTiger, Briguy, and more.
Mr. Dronian, I am sorry for writing an article about a non-celebrity. I had yet to read the rules (I have now) and apologize for making you delete it. Thank you.

"Articles needing citations" Edit
Is there a reason why the "Articles needing citations" category page was deleted? I just added a "fact" template to an article and noticed that the page I added is the only one there. I haven't been active on this wiki in quite awhile- did it have to do with the clockwork project (that I'm not quite sure is defunct or is still progressing)?
talk) 02:31, February 14, 2013 (UTC)on your wall. (
It was Wookie who deleted the category for some reason. I shall restore it. Dronian (talk) 02:33, February 14, 2013 (UTC)
most pages for forumersEdit
how come they always get deleted?
there are a ton of well known people on forums and they're actually famous for not stealing games or whatever cause any n0b could go do that
plus it adds to the page count and thats cool right?
- Forumers do not have 100,000+ place visits. I also personally believe forumers are way to arrogant of themselves, and creating an article of them here will only feed them.
- yeah but forumers have high post count that makes them famous and also better than random n0bs who steal other peoples game and rehost it as their own for place visits doesn't that feed people more?
Please do not remove or delete any templates from the main page. This is the last straw. You've done this multiple times, and if I catch you doing it again, you will be stripped of your moderation rights.
Do we really need DEFCON? Dronian (talk) 22:14, February 15, 2013 (UTC)
- Yes. It's important to be warned about vandalism.
- It definitely isn't. It is actually harmful. We should give as little attention as possible to vandals, and the way we're doing this right now is ridiculous. We don't need to "warn" people about vandalism: we just revert it. We don't need a complex warning system that just ends up making us waste time. There is no benefit to telling everyone about vandalism, putting information about vandalism attacks on our main page and overall making a big deal out of it; it just gives more attention to vandals. --Mark Otaris (talk) 00:33, February 18, 2013 (UTC)

You are not a famous user. Maybe if you read the rules, you'd realize that you're nowhere near the requirements for having a page on this wiki! Dronian (talk) 02:10, May 7, 2013 (UTC)
Well your rules are like greedy pig rules you know that and you think all the famous people are best they aren't ok
And your leaving the another non famous people out there
You know that you hate people who want to get famous but no you just don't care about them
There's a reason why we made rules! We are not going to make a page for every single user, scammer, or alt on ROBLOX. I think a user wouldn't like this wiki if, say, they were looking up for Crazyman32 and found hundreds of unused alts. Dronian (talk) 02:28, May 7, 2013 (UTC)
Don't allow alts or scammers I'm not a scammer or an alt my main is ryank5
Why can't you have 100 place visits to make a page
I tried to get that much but it still does not work it would take a long time for people to play my game
