FounderEdit

Hi! Who's the founder of this wiki? —Preceding unsigned comment added by ArianaGrandeForever (talkcontribs)

I am. There were various placeholder bits about that had one page with nothing on it, and a single picture, and that it. I came in and made the wiki, surprised no one had done it before me. Dream Focus 13:44, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

question Edit

who's the founder?

{{subst:nosubst|User:Ninja Fionna (Fionnafan)/Signature}} 02:50, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

I am. Someone else had a placeholder here, just a single sentence and a single picture on the main page, and nothing else. They abandoned it eight minutes after starting it. [1] That was on December 18, 2009‎. I then showed up at July 16, 2010‎ and started the actual wikia, adopting it since it was listed as abandoned. Dream Focus 04:35, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

ChatmodEdit

Thank you for making me a chatmod. I'll be on chat for 2-3 hours every day and I'll be sure to kick/ban when there are trolls. XOXO, Ariana Grande Forever (talk)

RE: CategoriesEdit

Ok. I'll add it. XOXO, Ariana Grande Forever (talk)

Taylor Swift and I meeting. Edit

Thanks! I'm trying to meet taylor for the first time. Are you friends with her?

Derpy Sparkle (talk) 14:10, December 7, 2012 (UTC)

Never met her before in my life. Sorry, can't help you there. Dream Focus 14:23, December 7, 2012 (UTC)

administration requestEdit

Hi!

I just wanted to ask you can you become an admin on this wiki or not and how?

StephanieByrne (talk) 18:15, September 17, 2014 (UTC)

Don't need any more administrators, so no. Dream Focus 21:10, September 17, 2014 (UTC)

vote for TaylorEdit

Hey there! Just letting you know that there's a new poll up on the Music Hub for voting on new album releases, It looks like Carrie Underwood supporters are running with this. Maybe spread word to other Taylor Swift fans?

Hope all is well!

I don't really care about polls. I think that's just a girl thing, I don't know. Seems rather pointless. Whoever has the highest sales figures is the most popular album, anything else is just meaningless. Dream Focus 22:24, September 29, 2014 (UTC)

so many infinite blocksEdit

Damn,i have seen many blocked users though,the number of blocked users is almost similar like the GTA Wiki,the wiki the wiki that I am blocked in.Though I am scared to be blocked because of my behavior.Anyway I control mines,though.Nervous,man!Connery Jay (talk) 13:48, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

The only peopled blocked are doing vandalism. No reason for any block not to be infinite. Dream Focus 13:49, October 16, 2014 (UTC)
  • Only 8 IP addresses have been blocked this year. Special:BlockList If you click on the IP address, it'll show their contributions, and you can check the history to see what they did to get blocked. Sometimes the top part of the article they make legitimate looking edits, then you scroll down and see what rude message they posted or whatnot that got them banned. Dream Focus 14:03, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

But then,you are an admin but behaves like a bureaucrats.Bureaucrats mean the users who take the major role of the wiki as he/her is online at all times.Anyway can I be a patroller for next year/rollback job?You should be a bureaucrat as you are online at all times but mine ain't.Thanks.Connery Jay (talk) 13:52, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

I founded this Wikia so I am a bureaucrat also. And I do check every day so I eliminate any vandalism that happens. I have never banned anyone for any reason other than deliberate vandalism, be they a pervert or just a random idiot posting hatred or nonsense. Dream Focus 13:58, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

Shoot,one thing I remember from this guy in GTA Wiki called Smashbro8 told me not to talk to bureaucrats as they will punish me more.But then,you are a friendly bureaucrat but can I be a patroller then?Connery Jay (talk) 14:00, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

No need for any patrollers. Not a lot of edits made each day. Usually none at all to patrol. Dream Focus 14:03, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

I just have to say it is nice talking to you for now,we two look like business partners,thoughConnery Jay (talk) 14:06, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

HeyEdit

Hey,Dream Focus are you free to talk now?It is nice to meet you.Sean.shn (talk) 11:07, October 21, 2014 (UTC)

Wiki wordmark Edit

Hi Dream, nice work you've done on Taylor Swift Wiki. I thought I'd drop by and say my opinion on the wordmark: I find it extremely difficult distinguishing the text from the plain white background. Perhaps you could change it so it has a better color luminosity ratio? Kind regards, – Ozuzanna 20:44, November 16, 2014 (UTC)

New Logo?Edit

Hi, I wanted to see if you like these for the wiki? File:63a983caf0ac51009efb5737d4272226.ico

I already use her latest album cover as the background. And I like the wordmark fine the way it is, so just leave it be. Dream Focus 20:22, November 17, 2014 (UTC)

Hi Edit

Hello! Thank you for welcoming me. I have been a reader of this wikia for a long time and finally decided to start contributing. Jetpackjoyride (talk) 06:03, December 29, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Edit

Thanks for the welcome. :) CalMillbo (talk) 10:17, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

concernEdit

One of the users on here, Patti Murray Solomon|Patti Murray Solomon, is writing what seems to be like an email to Andrea Swift, sounding personal, and I thought that that was odd and I was wondering if it was ok for her to write that or not? --Annabeth and Percy~The world comes to life and everything’s bright.

I have erased it. Can't go asking people for things like that. Just not proper. Dream Focus 19:29, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

The Love Story (lyrics) was vandalized. Someone wrote some really mean things, then fixed it. Then someone else wrote "I hate iran," and saying they were old and not young. I fixed it, but who knows when that person may come back and do that again. And I love that song. I just thought I'd let you know that. --Annabeth and Percy~The world comes to life and everything’s bright. From beginning to end when you have a friend by your side that helps you to find the beauty you are when you open your heart and believe in the gift of a friend. 15:57, January 22, 2015 (UTC)

I blocked them for that. If you look at the list of blocked people [2] you'll see that does happen at times. Some idiots just like doing random idiotic vandalism like that. Rather pathetic really. If they are immature enough, they'll keep coming back with different IP addresses for awhile before giving up. Dream Focus 20:31, January 22, 2015 (UTC)

It's so ridiculous, and I feel bad that you have to deal with that. When I make my wikis, I'm going to lock every page so I don't have to deal with that unless I let them. --Annabeth and Percy~The world comes to life and everything’s bright. From beginning to end when you have a friend by your side that helps you to find the beauty you are when you open your heart and believe in the gift of a friend. 22:42, January 22, 2015 (UTC)

I see that a lot of them don't even have usernames, though it may not make a difference. Do you know if there's a way that you can only allow people who have usernames to comment and edit, and not ones that don't have usernames, because it's so hard for me to tell any differences between them. --Annabeth and Percy~The world comes to life and everything’s bright.

  • I asked the Wikia staff that years ago, and they said no, they weren't going to add that. If you block IP addresses from a page you also have to block all "new users", and a new user is defined as someone who hasn't been around for a set amount of time or hasn't made a certain number of edits. Blocking all new users means anyone who shows up will never be able to edit and become anything but one. I check this wikia every day to look at the recent edits, and investigate anything that is changed. Dream Focus 03:05, January 23, 2015 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks. --Annabeth and Percy~The world comes to life and everything’s bright. From beginning to end when you have a friend by your side that helps you to find the beauty you are when you open your heart and believe in the gift of a friend. 15:11, January 23, 2015 (UTC)
