Hey everyone! Every now and again I'll come up with a good blog topic that has nothing to do with anime...yes this is true. Now I have decided to make it a series seeing how other users are structuring their blog topics like this
. The main topic for today? The wiki for all Whiskey Media sites! Now as you may or may not be aware of making wiki edits is somewhat messed up right. People aren't getting credit for their edits...people getting multiple notifications for single edits... and general buginess
. The engineers are all aware of these problems and don't hide the fact that they have a triage system in place in dealing with these bugs.
Now I have some very exciting news to present to not only the Anime Vice community but every community a part of Whiskey Media. In a recent forum topic discussing the recent issue of people not being rewarded points for their wiki edits Dave Snider provided this extremely re-assuring comment:
Wikid, our internal platform for powering our wikis will be getting a
complete rewrite this year. With it will come a more consistent scoring
system, full histories and a host of other changes. Hang in there. In
the meantime, anytime you notice scoring problems please send a twitter
note to either myself @enemykite or andy @andymccurdy. Thanks duders.
My response? Was this:
So yeah...that's awesome. Also I want to just say that Wiki History will make my job a lot easier. So look for that in the near future!
Other than that? As fellow mod Sweep
has pointed out if you ever wanted to understand what it is like being a forum moderator for a video game website just watch this video:
I think that Muammar Gaddafi looks like Snoopy
...and want to remind anyone who wants to be a mod that Wiki moderation is dangerous stuff
. Also for some reason my drunk blog is still getting new comments and views. At this point that blog is over a month old so I find that really unusual, but also it reminds me that I should probably write one of those for my next article for Anime Vice...yeah.
Next I want to address something else. As you may or may not be aware of I am now on the auto-follow list for Anime Vice. Partially due to the fact that I'm a Guest Author, but also because apparently my blogs are popular and followed. So I end this blog with this question: What is your problem? I entered this site wanting to see how far I could push your buttons, and now you actually like it? BAH!
