FYI. Lorien Legacies was created AFTER this wikia, anything that has been added to this wikia after Lorien Legacies was because I created it and found that it worked. I Am Admin for both wikias so it cannot possibly be a rip-off.
It isn't about you. It's about the wikis. And you claim to be administration on both wikis? You've been nearly gone from this one for a while and gone from the other one for much longer. If you haven't noticed, Aura is the real administration now. You aren't part of that community anymore. You left. It doesn't matter what you created. It matters that you created it on the other wiki.
Excuse me, I was responding to some critcism of this wiki, I didn't realise it was any of your business.
I don't claim, I am an administrator on both wikis. I haven't made loads of edits recently because believe it or not - I have a real life too... However i have been on every single day, monitoring for vandalism, bullying ect...
I also gave Aura his administrator rights and they are doing an excellent job with the wiki. To suggest that I am no longer part of that community, or to even suggest that this fandom has factions, is the attitude of a bully and has no place here.
Let's be fair here, lorien legacies isn't a rip off, it's far better, and that's down to the new batch of people on there since Aura became admin. The fact is this place has gone downhill just like Badger said, and it's turned into what lorien legacies used to be like, whereas LL is now as good, probably better, than what this place was in it's good days. Just cos you're an admin of a wiki Ryan doesn't give you the right to claim credit for it's success.
As for the whole rip off thing, I'm guessing that guy was trying to say this place has become pretty bad recently and is trying to make itself better by coping LL. You haven't contributed to LL in ages Ryan, so don't try telling us you're a part of that wiki. You didn't create either of these wikis, and being admin of LL means nothing unless you contribute regularly. This is not bullying as you say, it is fact. You wouldn't expect people to listen to a so called leader who's been away for ages would you?
Word of advice to you Ryan: you can't use your power to get rid of everyone that disagrees with you. If you're looking for ways to make this wiki better then listen to this: people want to be able to comment what they want and to have all the features of wikia available to them on the site. This place had that, it had achievement system, good and intellignet contributers and a close community, but that was forced out by blocking pages from editing, getting rid of users you didn't like and forcing people to do your bidding. People left because you changed this wiki and made it a place the community did not like. Now, it looks to mainly be a place of people having pointless arguments over worn out topics. If you want to correct it, put this place back to how it was. And if you ban me, you prove everything I've said just now to be right. Unless of course you like this place as it is now, then by all means, go ahead. But over half the people on here agreed with Badger's view, somehow I don't think that's the making of a good wikia.
A lot of what you have just said confuses me and seems like a load of dramatic nonsense, just like badger. I'm not going to waste my time responding to all your points. There are just a few that concern me.
First off I'd just like to remind you that both the wikis aren't competing; I am an administrator on both and I adopted LL because it was run down and basically a waste of space. I honestly think it's fair to say that I can take some credit, but Aura is doing a great job - I just couldn't cope with looking after both.
Jesus I feellike a criminal defending himself - What is this!!! Anyway i go on...
I have never gotten rid of anyone for disagreeing with me. I'm not sure where you heard that from...
This whole idea of the wiki going down hill, it's actually never been so popular (I get statistics emailed to me every night). There isn't loads of discussion but it doesn't have to be. It's mainly a place people can come to read up of specific information using the pages. LL is much more a discussion wiki, anyhow if you want to discuss then there is so many outlets for you to chose one, its not down to me to generate discussion.
"forcing people to do my bidding" lol what? I'm not sure what that meant... I tried getting more people involved by offering admin powers but that was thrown in my face.
I'm just a guy, I work hard outside of here and this is a place that i come to relax. It's a hobby. All I ever try to do is work on the pages, make sure the info is right and up to date. If there is going to be vandelism and abuse then I have to stop that, I'm sorry that's just the way it is. It's not fair that i am being blamed for people leaving or not giving intelligent discussion.
I may be around for a bit (it's quite late) so if you want to chat a bit more we can go on the chat rather than message back and forth like this :)
I get your point of view. The main difference here I guess is perspective. You see it from the role of admin, we see it from the role as a contributer. If you're willing, we're on chat to talk and better understand each other.
Hey, when are you taking the lock off the character pages, the book has been out for a month, dont you think its time to take them off. But if you have a reason that your keeping them locked then thats coool. Im a understanding person :)
The main page looks awesome but I thought I'd let you know that in the featured article section it says that Revenge of Seven is the final book in the series. I figured someone might want to edit that.
My name is Ariana- I'm on the Community team over here at Wikia. I was checking out your great wiki and was wondering if you'd be open to having me do a mainpage spiff? This would entire a new background, logo, mainpage headers, and new content since the main page is pretty empty.
Let me know if you have any ideas, questions, or concerns!

Awesome! I was going to add a Featured Article section, a featured media section with some fun related videos, a character gallery, a book series gallery, then maybe a poll on the right rail along with a news and blog section. Does that sound okay? I can edit the main page then you can tell me what you want changed/added/deleted?

I think there should be a general They Walk Among Us page detailing the history and development of it and then the two separate pages (one for the blog and one for the newsletter) giving separate information, activities, events, those who work for them ect ect.. Sound good?
