Is this wiki dying?

This wiki seems like it's dying. Less and less people are making edits each day. CheeseGuy17 (talk) 21:46, January 10, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Activity goes up and down. It's been stable enough and OA reported "minimal" change in statistics (particularly readers) after management was reset. Saying this wiki is dying is narratively convenient for the trolls who would like nothing better than to see the world burn but doesn't appear to hold up and even if it's quieter, that's okay. A handful of halfway decent users? Basically a dream. Still one of the most active reception wikis on the field. --Raidarr (talk) 21:57, January 10, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why is GoodEditior unblocked?

I thought he was blocked due to exaggerating his opinion to much? Batboy234 (talk) 22:34, January 10, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

GE was blocked for only a couple days as a warning against pushing his opinion too aggressively to the point of vandalizing pages, but he still has a chance to not do it and get it right. Permanent or long blocks should be a last resort when people refuse to listen after multiple chances: that was his chance. --Raidarr (talk) 22:58, January 10, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, ok! Batboy234 (talk) 23:16, January 10, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If you're wondering why I (and a few others) keep removing every instance of "Depending on your view" and "x started/ended season n on a good/bad/high/sour note" phrases

Please read this blog I wrote about a week ago for more details. I don't think a lot of people have seen it yet, and yes. These phrases are annoying, pointless, and overused to death that they need to stop being used here for good. We have been criticized in the past for using the same cookie-cutter phrases before and its getting old, which is one of the reasons why a lot of people hate reception wikis in general. Snow (talk) 01:30, January 15, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I agree with you, Snow. Just another way we can improve New Qualitipedia. CarltheToonMan42 (talk) 01:49, January 15, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rebel Moon

In case you didn't see this, I'm going to be making a page of Rebel Moon, and despite me making some edits here and there, I may also need your help too (which is why I'm starting it off as a sandbox) so that it turns out ready for me to move from a sandbox into a full on page.

SlashcraftGaming (talk) 03:16, January 15, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If you want a review on the strength of the pointers when it's more ready, let me know. --Raidarr (talk) 12:38, January 18, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

About half season

Page like SBSP and Kick Buttowski doesn't need to be one since many people preferred to blame entire season due that thing can affected to entire series (i.e. say entire instead of half season is improvement over previous season) and media outside series never dedicated to half installment. If you want to keep this, just put on redeeming/good pointer instead of title just like rest of media. Oldwish12 (talk) 12:09, January 18, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Telepedia

It's me, jrStudios. This wiki farm has a serious problem with hosting racist, homophobic, and misogynistic wikis. The New Qualtipedia is home of very extremist wikis pointing things as "woke". Examples:

  • They constantly (like the rest of Hollywood) race-bend white characters when it isn’t necessary. An example would be Ariel being brownwashed in the The Little Mermaid live-action remake.
In addition, they refuse to accept any criticism for race-swapping peach characters and instead, call people "racist" for refusing to accept these changes. This Flashgitz video illustrates that perfectly.
    • Proof Qualtipedia is racist.
  • They contributed to the false mentality that The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder is teaching kids to be racist towards white people and claiming that the show is "woke", when it's not. <- More proof of racism.
  • Brianna Wu was rather famously caught putting up fake reviews on her developer account to harass herself during GamerGate. <-- Proof of misogyny.
  • Some writers point out every little bad thing in a show they don't like because it often doesn't support their political opinions. But they fail to mention major bad things in shows they do like because they want to promote it and their political opinions. Then they give it 5 stars and mislead parents into letting their children watch it. This especially happens with one "writer" named Emily Ashby, and they rate content containing sexual misconduct against men positively because of their opinions, bashing entertainment that supports men's rights.

Any websites, media, and articles that discredit politicians they don't like are immediately given five stars. <-- proof Qualtipedia is part of the Manosphere.

  • Despite changing their stance on the LGBT+ community in recent years, their support for the LGBT+ community has become a bit extreme starting in 2021.
One example of this is their fierce opposition to Florida's Parental Rights in Education Act, which forbids the teaching of sexual orientation and gender identity to students between kindergarten and third grade (or, as the radical left calls it, the "Don’t Say Gay" bill). While originally choosing to remain neutral on the bill, they were pressured into opposing it when it was discovered that they had funded the bill. This new stance has included adding more LGBT+ content in their movies and shows and mocking anyone who opposes these additions. For example, they added an initially deleted scene of 2 women kissing each other in Pixar's Lightyear movie. However, when people voiced their opposition to this scene being included, Chris Evans, the voice of Buzz Lightyear, openly mocked them, calling them idiots "who will die off like the dinosaurs". <-- Qualtipedia being homophobic.

Please remove the Reception Wikis immediately. JrStudios (talk) 19:29, January 21, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey, I think I remember you. Weren't you that user on the Miraheze version of Qualitipedia who would constantly bring up ItsFunneh and also had a habit of letting their dog chew up their Switch game cartridges? SuperStreetKombat (talk) 20:49, January 21, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Now, you may remember me by that, but remember, I was a FORMER ADMIN of these wikis. Any "fixes" will be reverted by the corrupt staff of this wiki including Raidarr. JrStudios (talk) 12:51, January 22, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Are you working with those twats (Szczypak, Robin, BU, and ChessGuy)? Cuz you act like that. CJWorldGame32125 (talk) 18:16, January 22, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No I am not. I am just angered about the right wing extremism on these wikis.
Szczypak was one of those reception wiki fanboys. JrStudios (talk) 18:21, January 22, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not anymore. CJWorldGame32125 (talk) 18:23, January 22, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
CJ, you seem like one of those far right anti SJW people. The reason why you like these wikis is likely because you hold the views listed above. Brownwashing is a term used by the far right to promote their white supremacy, and y'all use the "woke" argument against the 2016 Ghostbusters movie still to this day. JrStudios (talk) 18:28, January 22, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Lmao. I'm not a far right anti SJW. If that was the case, The Owl House wouldn't be my all time favourite animated show. I like these wikis because of my experience with friends, and being fun editing. I acknowledged its fundamental flaws, and always wanted it to get better. CJWorldGame32125 (talk) 21:09, January 22, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi JrStudios, lets take this point by point.
  • Proof Qualitipedia is racist: If the pointers (which you have cherry picked without links) are poor, by all means fix them. You've made a handful of pointers here targeting specific sentences and accusing the wiki farm, the reception wikis and new qualitipedia (all different things you've used interchangeably) of a systemic problem. Your argument here is weak and barely anything to work with. Anyone is invited to improve these pointers, personally the first three could probably be removed as they make large assertions and back them up poorly. "Race bending" is a silly thing to get fussed about I agree. If the point explains that a race is flipped with no in-setting logic or rationale, there might be something to discuss.
  • Proof of misogyny: if it gets a source then it's a fact, not misogyny. That seems to be a word you're using to further an agenda and not a useful criticism. However if it is not sourced it can be removed as it's a rather bold claim to make.
  • proof Qualtipedia is part of the Manosphere: The quote before this is nonsensical and should be removed or rewritten entirely, but "part of the manosphere" is equally useless.
  • Qualtipedia being homophobic: Link the page, I may alter the point or remove the content as overly partisan. But since nothing is linked and you're just making quips claiming extremism I have very little to go on to take action.
"Please remove the Reception Wikis immediately?" I think not. You're free to work on things that need improvement, lord knows this wiki is a mess, but if you can't offer real solutions then the wiki might not be a place for you. --Raidarr (talk) 22:07, January 21, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The Walt Disney Company page is the main one, with the GamerGate parts being part of the Fake Reviews page and other parts being sourced from the Common Sense Media page. This wiki is a far-right echo chamber (bold claim I know) and almost sucked me into the far right. What do you say for yourself, former Miraheze admin? JrStudios (talk) 13:25, January 22, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I say you have always been remarkably naive and you are responsible for your own actions, even before the actions that got you fired for misconduct on the old wikis which is rather difficult to do on a reception wiki. --Raidarr (talk) 13:45, January 22, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Custom styling for this wiki

This wiki has had no styling since its inception, which looks quite bland. To solve this issue, I've created this custom styling that looks pretty sharp; try it out and tell me what you think. Tali64³ (talk) 23:20, January 22, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I made a draft at one point which got mixed to negative feedback, since scrapped it in favor of keeping basic. If there is reasonably good support for this any admin is free to make it a default look in MediaWiki:Vector.css. For those looking to test: paste the contents of the linked custom styling into your personal vector.css page. A sitenotice may also be added to draw attention. --Raidarr (talk) 00:03, January 23, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Notice is added, lets see what folks think. --Raidarr (talk) 12:14, January 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not sure how good a sitenotice will be since the Vector skin has vanished completely for seemingly no reason. Tali64³ (talk) 13:39, January 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That makes no sense to me, I'm viewing on vector right now and vector is the wiki's default unless you're on mobile. --Raidarr (talk) 13:52, January 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am also viewing in Vector. -- Original Authority (talk) 13:59, January 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The Vector skin takes some time to appear if I switch to desktop view; that might be why I was confused. Tali64³ (talk) 15:16, January 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I find it works best when you manually enforce desktop view at the bottom of the page, on top of the browser's setting. --Raidarr (talk) 17:24, January 25, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think we should add an eye-appealing color pallete, far and different from the Terrible/Great TV Shows Wikias. Nazaypato (talk) 16:57, January 25, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I would be inclined to agree. The green is not the nicest and is very heavy on the eyes. Original Authority (talk) 17:03, January 25, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Examples/samples are welcome, the floor is open to improve appearances. --Raidarr (talk) 17:24, January 25, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Fixed. Tali64³ (talk) 17:57, January 25, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The background color fits but the white color of the page part is really unappealing to the eye. Maybe make that a lighter shade of green. --Angry109 (talk) 11:50, January 28, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done. Tali64³ (talk) 16:49, January 28, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Should there be a page about company layoffs on this wiki?

I'm not sure if this is on-topic or not, but with how many layoffs companies have been going through (especially one in the gaming industry) for the past year so, it seems pretty appropriate to me that a hypothetical page about that kind of practice sorta deserves a page here.

I know how common it is for a company to layoff its staff, but that kind of practice has been taken to a whole level last year, especially with video games, and since Microsoft has cut its staff again like they did last year, that seems like the straw that broke the camel's back that I think a page about layoffs is warranted.

Also, if such a page does get created, do you think it should be about layoffs at gaming studios or layoffs at studios in pretty much media in general? What do you guys think of this? SuperStreetKombat (talk) 23:48, January 25, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't think it's necessary but if a good draft is made I don't believe it would be too out of scope. Perhaps OA has an opinion here. It may as well cover media in general if it does get made. --Raidarr (talk) 09:59, January 26, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What would OA think of a page about company layoffs? Would he approve of it? SuperStreetKombat (talk) 19:41, January 26, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

About PalWorld

The Xbox versions run atrociously, and have terrible looking graphics, bad sound quality, and it loves to crash alot. I feel like making a page for this game, as it clearly plagiarizes Pokémon assets and due to how poorly it runs. Blastoise (talk) 03:51, January 30, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've heard quite a lot about the game (especially since it's basically PokeMon with guns), and I've also heard how commercially successful it is, though I haven't heard of how well or poorly recieved it is by the general consensus yet. However, there are those who do say it's more original (if not better) than PokeMon since the latter franchise has been on a decline for the past decade due to its supposed lack of innovation as of late. SuperStreetKombat (talk) 04:47, January 30, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Could you back up the claim of asset plagiarism? I've heard claims about it but the details are the key. --Raidarr (talk) 09:23, January 30, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, it's an early access/in development game with extremely positive reviews at a cursory glance. A negative perception page combined with roughly backed assertions and early development trouble is inappropriate. --Raidarr (talk) 21:32, January 30, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Couldn't have said it better than myself. SuperStreetKombat (talk) 00:49, January 31, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Something's wrong with comment sections

The comment sections on some of the pages keep loading endlessly and won't show up. Is there any way to fix this? SuperStreetKombat (talk) 01:48, February 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Comments are loading fine for me. That being said, I do have one complaint with comments in that they're not mobile-friendly; this issue can easily be fixed with CSS, as I have done before. Tali64³ (talk) 02:20, February 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well, it's mostly the Warner Bros. Discovery page with the comment section that won't load. Also, how can an issue like this be fixed with CSS? SuperStreetKombat (talk) 02:43, February 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Your perceived issue with comments not loading probably can't be fixed with CSS; my issue with comments not being mobile friendly definitely can. Tali64³ (talk) 04:50, February 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm using mobile, and do you mean to tell me that the comment section on that page is beyond repair because I'm using mobile? That wouldn't be good if that was the case. SuperStreetKombat (talk) 05:06, February 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The issue I'm describing applies to the Comments extension in general, not just that specific page; however, the page you're having issues with does appear to fail for me, not just for comments but for every other section. Tali64³ (talk) 05:09, February 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well, do you think there's something wrong with that page? Can anything be done about it? SuperStreetKombat (talk) 08:05, February 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Probably not but I can save a link to the page and forward it to OA at some point if he can see anything internally.
The extension has and will continue to have bugs, some of them being difficult at best to resolve or appearing and disappearing quite arbitrarily. It is what we're left with now, the ship on a replacement has sailed unless there's a proper movement to change it. --Raidarr (talk) 10:27, February 24, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Should the second season of the Clone High reboot be a good page?

Because I read and watched reviews of it and most people aggre that this season is way better than the previous one. Batboy234 (talk) 20:28, February 26, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If it cumulatively seems more positive then the page should focus on those improvements yes. --Raidarr (talk) 23:08, February 26, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I recently watched the second season of the reboot, and while this season is an improvement over the previous one, I still think that the overall season is still mid at best. Especially with the first few episodes being just as rough as the first six episodes of the first season of the reboot. As well as the unnecessary gore and swearing still being present. Maybe have the perspective written as decent or average? Snow (talk) 02:47, February 27, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The difference is barely distinguishable to be honest. Just ordering the positives/negatives differently and slight tweaks to other bits and to categories. I think a balance to average it out as better but not quite there listing improvements first and then reiterating negatives wouldn't be too hard. --Raidarr (talk) 09:34, February 27, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Avatar The Last Airbender (2024)

So the new Netflix Avatar reboot came out and while I enjoyed it, it has some serious problems, should we add it? Drag0n (talk) 02:05, February 27, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

So far, all I could say about the series is that it is a vast improvement from M. Night Shyamalan's infamous live action movie. Though it's still not as good as the original animated series. It can be added, but maybe the perspective of the page should be written in the mediocre/decent/average tone. Snow (talk) 02:52, February 27, 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
