Hello![edit]

Hello, my name is EdBoy3. I am new to Wikisimpsons and I am an admin at a place you may find familiar, Beyblade Wiki. I see you have left due to Wikia changing the skin. I want to move Beyblade Wiki from Wikia to an independent Wiki host like MediaWiki, as you have done with WikiSimpsons. Now we really miss you, you were a great contributor to Beyblade Wiki and we want you to help us move from Wikia. I tried to do it but it was far too complex for me to handle, we need someone like you to please help us move to MediaWiki. Now now I'm not done, I will edit here actively at Wikisimpsons as I do at Beyblade Wiki, if you have seen my edits there. We really want your help for Beyblade Wiki to move and I will edit here if you help us, HazeShot misses you, so can you please help Beyblade Wiki move to MediaWiki, I will owe you big time, like I could have Beyblade Wiki affiliate with you by providing a link on the Main Page. I swear, cross my heart and hope to die. User talk:EdBoy3

I have provided some links to show you I am not a poser.

Hi, I didn't help move the wiki over. If you want to move to independence and need help, I would ask Jake for help. Good to see you are moving away from Wikia although I wasn't a major part of the wiki, just an admin who didn't do a lot of editing. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 05:13, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
Whoa, whoa, you made a wiki on ShoutWiki. Are you interested in moving to ShoutWiki? ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 05:22, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
I created a wiki on ShoutWiki so I could see if it was easier and much better than installing MediaWiki. Could you tell me which one is better? I see you are an admin there but an admin called, Lynton closed two other ShoutWikis I made about Beyblade Wiki and left me with the Monobook one. Could you turn the Moonbook one to using Monaco please, it would be a big help. One more thing, could you ask Jake if he can help move it would really help, thank you. :) --EdBoy3 22:11, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
If you want Monaco there, you have to ask Jack Phoenix about having Monaco. However, it is only available until August before it becomes a paid feature. If you want to move independent, you need money. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 05:14, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hello Solar, I'm not sure whether you got my email or not but most of the interaction you have had with "Esycos" or form my email was a hacker and from what I managed to sift through the crap they did, I found some stuff on ShoutWiki, despite that had left. People were pissed that they got some revertible vandalism while I got part of my real life messed with. I have had to redo a heap of anti-vandalism and spam stuff everywhere I am. Luckily I have two email accounts so they couldn't get into all the places I used. I do hope you understand as I came across all the stuff that happened and was rather pissed off about it. According to a friend of mine who looked into my hack said the IP may have come from Scotland, who I am assuming was Jaymach, that little bitch has tried to mess with me several times so far. I intend to edit here as lately I've had nothing to do but watch tv shows mostly the simpsons. Anyway just thought you should know. Escyos 06:58, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I got the email but didn't respond in case it was a trick. Anyway, what happened to my Stargate Wiki account? It just disappeared. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 17:06, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
Well I change passwords frequently now so there no, or very little, chance that it will happen again. Anyway as for your account, I didn't get a database dump, i used the export/import feature in small doses and some things were lost, I just wanted to leave that wiki and move to my independent one as quickly as i could, so as soon as I could I did. Unfortunately I had to disable account creation because of vandals, who only could vandalise by creating obscene and vandalous usernames such as "dislike stargatewiki.org" and "call 04XXXXXXXXX" (which was my number). So if you want an account I can create one for you. Escyos 03:49, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Analytics Account[edit]

I've set up an analytics account for you, and sent the password to your Wikisimpsons email account. You can access the analytics here with the username 'SolarDragon'. --Jake 16:15, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Cool, I have access. Thanks. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 16:50, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Shoutwiki[edit]

Hey solar, Shoutwiki's been down for awhile today, have you heard anything further? --Hockeyben 17:51, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Hang on, I'll ping staff again. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 17:51, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Anything?--Hockeyben 18:06, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Haven't replied yet. I'll leave a message here when they do. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 18:08, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Still nothing? --Hockeyben 01:36, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

It should have been an easy fix and there was some problems with the data centre so we had to wait for them. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 07:40, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't understand. Have they replied yet? --Hockeyben 13:29, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes, the datacentre is --Hockeyben 15:21, 19 June 2011 (UTC)having problems at the moment, it's not ShoutWiki's fault they're down. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 13:29, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
[13:10]	<Jedimca0>	I'm waiting to hear back from the techs.
[13:10]	<Jedimca0>	last news was there some RAM issues, but those were fixed.
[13:10]	<Jedimca0>	the Datacenter also had some problems with their connection.
[13:10]	<Jedimca0>	but I was told that should be fixed soon.
[13:10]	<Jedimca0>	but what I'd like to know is if the datacenter is doing overtime during the weekend...
[13:11]	<Jedimca0>	but I like I said, waiting to hear from our techs... as they are in contact with the datacenter. 

The Solar Dragon☆ 13:31, 18 June 2011 (UTC)


Have you heard anything further? Site's still down :( And congrats to you guys for reaching 8,000 articles! Only 2,000 away until 10k!--Hockeyben 17:40, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Nothing since, been offline for a while. I just want to get over 9000 articles. Then we can go about shouting "It's over 9000!" :P ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 17:48, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Have you heard anything further? Still down... --Hockeyben 15:21, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

When I hear anything, I'll tell you here. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 15:22, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

I gotta admit, I'm getting pretty nervous. I'm surprised a blog post hasn't been written regarding this. At least this seems to be a connection problem, not the server malfunctioning like last time. --Hockeyben 15:34, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

It looks like their database server crashed. As long as there wasn't any corruption, I'd expect all of their wikis to be back online within a few days. :) --Jake 04:35, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
Hopefully, it should be back up today, if not tomorrow. They just need to check a few things first. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 05:16, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, that's good to hear. :) --Hockeyben 14:34, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

The site is still down. Have you heard anything further? --Hockeyben 13:45, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

As much as I hate agreeing with my evil, hacking doppelganger, but he (and, apparently because some can't see when a hacker has control, I) told you so. Also, Hockeyben, that user who is using the name "Escyos" on Autopedia on Wikkii is NOT me, I posted about the images on you talk page, but the rest is someone else. Escyos 03:15, 23 June 2011 (UTC)


@Escyos I know that the spammer wasn't "you", we've had a whole host of spam at Autopedia.

@Solar Dragon I was in contact with Jack Phoenix regarding shoutwiki, and the server is having connectivity issues, and MySQL daemon is not working. So, it does'nt look nearly as bad as last time. --Hockeyben 19:13, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

New news, they're moving to a new server as their datacenter has fucked them up so much. We are still not sure whether there has been any data loss like last time though... ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:19, 23 June 2011 (UTC)


Great that they're finally dumping their inadequate host. I hope that there is no data loss, and no wikis are un-recoverable (like autopedia and simpsons fanon). Is there an ETA on when this might happen? --Hockeyben 19:37, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

They've started now but no ETA right now I'm afraid. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:38, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks a heap for keeping me informed. :) I wonder why Shoutwiki hasn't posted a blog regarding this... --Hockeyben 19:41, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

They want the blog to sound good and be informative, they're working on it in other words. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:43, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Whether it informative or not, people need to be kept in the loop. Its different for me, because I got informed. But for everyone else, they don't have the slightest clue what's going on, which in turn makes them angrier. --Hockeyben 13:36, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Patrolling disabled?[edit]

I was just wondering; did you guys intentionally disable those exclamation points that appear on the recent changes list for unpatrolled edits? Because if you'd like to disable patrolling, I can do that much more effectively through a server setting. Otherwise, it might be best to re-enable them so we can see which edits need to be reviewed for vandalism. --Jake 04:14, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Urm... I didn't disable anything... ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 07:38, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
Oh... Ok then. Someone disabled those markers using CSS so I assumed it must be intentional. I'll enable them now. --Jake 13:15, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
If it was me, whoops, sorry. I didn't mean to disable anything. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 13:17, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

8,000 articles[edit]

Congratulations, you write number 8000. /AleWi 10:12, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

YES! 8000 articles! ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 10:15, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

A New Proposal[edit]

First of all, I'm back! Secondly, is there a possibility of creating a thing similar to Wikipedia:Articles for Deletion but for everything and not just for deleting. [[User:Doh5678|Doh5678]] ([[User talk:Doh5678|talk]]) 22:33, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

I'd give you a link to what I think you mean, buts its wikia so people will go "oh noez" [[File:Cjcsdonut.png|30px]] -- [[User talk:Kingcjc|cjc]] 22:35, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
Hi, good to see you back. We normally just bring up deletions on the talk page of the article so it isn't really needed. However, we could have a trial run. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 22:36, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Recent spammers[edit]

Seems to be a link between them, despite different IP's, they are doing similar things like creating a page and saying they agree with it or replacing content with "Touchdown! That's a rlaely cool way of putting it!". Cjcsdonut.png -- cjc 08:41, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

I think they're mocking. Trying to make you think that the articles are bad, probably someone from simpsons wikia. They're just jealous. Also has anyone else noticed slow times for the site, maybe its just me or maybe your host's scripting processes have been exceeded. Escyos 12:12, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I thought that there was a link between them. And Escyos, occasionally it is slow and occasionally it is fast. Not sure why. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 17:38, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
The site will usually be a little slower after the server restarts because it needs to start caching the files. After a few hours, it usually is running at top speed again. I had to restart the server several times yesterday because I was running some upgrades, so I'm really sorry if it caused some slowdown for you guys. -Jake 20:29, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Affiliation[edit]

So are our two sites going to become affiliated once again? Escyos 05:25, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Hmm... I think I can get around my new rules by saying "well, there have been many references to The Simpsons in Stargate so sure, why not" (I've even made a list of the references here if you want to make an article on your wiki too about The Simpsons. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 05:30, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
Finally got around to (remembered) to add you to my affiliate list, will create a simpsons page tomoro as i am working on the fanon subdomain right now. Escyos 14:08, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
Hey I noticed you talking on Infosphere about the animated sitcom shows alliance, cool idea. I created, and am sort of dry running, the Scifi Independent Wiki Alliance or SIWA. Have another german Stargate wiki already, asked battlestarwiki but the owner just kind of insulted me, plus theres a Firefly wiki i message but they havent got back. Do you know of any other independent scifi wikis? Escyos 07:23, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
I don't know of any other Sci-Fi wikis, sorry. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 07:38, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
Well If you do let me know. Also the link to my wiki in the sidebar has the wrong link, you need to remove the "/wiki/" part as that page refuses to link to the image on it and people won't know what to click on. Thanks Escyos 03:40, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
I just saw on your portal, Stargate Wiki in Ancient? How are you going to manage that? ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 06:52, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
...umm...extreme extremness? Not sure yet, may just copy stuff from the English one and alter the font somehow. Escyos 06:58, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Small task[edit]

Can you give User:I Doh Bot his flag back. Thanks. Doh5678 (talk) 15:10, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Done. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 16:54, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Could you also add stargate wiki to interwiki so I can fix the links on the Stargate page. Thanks. Escyos 03:37, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

I was meaning to get round to that. InterWiki is stargate: ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 05:05, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
You also seemed to have removed the /wiki/ part from the interwiki so nothing will work. Escyos 14:03, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
It didn't work for me with the /wiki/ bit. Added in again though just to see what happens. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 14:05, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
Works good for me, had to clear the cache to do so but it worked. Also sorry if it seems like I am demanding changes or something :D Escyos 14:09, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Uh, dude?[edit]

My username appears as another user's name on the homepage for some reason. Do u know what this is about? Thx, Dohayecarumbadoh 00:32, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

See Jake's talk page. ;) ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 07:39, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Bronze Homer Voting[edit]

The vote counter doesn't seem to be registering any votes. I don't know if there's a problem on the site or if it's my computer (it has been having some Java- and Flash-related hiccups lately). -- Mythigator 13:40, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

There's a bug with it. If it isn't fixed by the end of today, I'll choose the winner. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 15:09, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

SocialProfile Fixed[edit]

I guess there is one good thing about the upgrade. It seems that SocialProfile is now working properly, and I can access all of the associated pages including friend requests. Just thought I would let you know in case you didn't notice already. :) --Jake 21:28, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

I noticed, just forgot to mention :P ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 21:29, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

ASWA[edit]

I am one step away from purchasing the domain for the Animated Sitcom Wiki Alliance. But I need one more bit of input. What top level domain is the consensus on? .com, .org, or .net? They all cost the same, so that isn't an issue. I will be available on the IRC channel until 6:30PM EDT (UTC-5) (sorry I don't know what time zone you're in). ~Ketchup

I think it should be .net --Smiley12 05:35, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
I would like .net too. And I'm in BST but uf you work it out using Wikisimpsons time, that would be best. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 06:57, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
Out searching for more ways to destroy wikia, I searched the internet. This is what I found: NIWA – Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance, SIWA – Sci-fi Independent Wiki Alliance, SEIWA – Square-Enix Independent Wiki Alliance, ASWA – Animated Sitcom Wiki Alliance and CIWA –Capcom Independent Wiki Alliance. Makes me think there should be a "Independent Alliance of Independent Wiki Alliances" or something. More seem to be popping up and most of the wikis are from wikia, soon they shall be slain! Escyos 15:23, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Why not[edit]

Why can't I just edit both, the Wikia one has achievements which entices me into editing whilst this one has lots of activity. Why can't one user edit on both as I am active on both (Wikia and this). Knife! 18:59, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Because Wikia are in direct competition with us and most of the community (if not all of this community) dislike/hate Wikia and we have an Anti-Wikia stance. I am a part of two anti-Wikia alliances, one of which has successfully managed to bring Wikia offline for a short period of time. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 19:09, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
Would Special:SystemGiftManager allow us to set up achievements? It seems like that's the page that would do such a thing. --Jake 03:17, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
I'm not a big fan of Wikia's achievements especially becuase once you get all of the other ones the only thing left is the lucky edit badges. One thing you should know knife is that I was the one that originally made every single one of those badges (there a few new ones now). We have user tags on this wiki anyway for editing like {{User 1000 edits}} {{User Administrator}} {{User Golden Homer}} etc. I'd be happy to make some more. --Smiley12 04:09, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
I belive that if we get achivements, there will be more activity. FatHomerTalk 18:58, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Achievements are a Wikia only thing and there will be no way in us getting them. We can give gifts and we have our templates though. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 19:00, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Re: Simpsons Wikia[edit]

Hello. I'm not a fan of Wikia or anything, but I work on the Simpsons one because it has lots of vandals trying to ruin it but I want to help here to because it's got more activity. I'm not sure why you dislike Wikia or consider it your rival; both WikiSimpson and Simpsons Wiki focus on the same thing. I don't like pointing out names, but isn't Effluvium an Admin on both? All I want to do is help both places, I wish this didn't have to be a problem. TheShadowCrow 20:49, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Because Wikia is evil and the first chance they get they will infect you with adware in an attempt to generate more revenue for themselves. Escyos 02:01, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Most admins here were once admins on Wikia, me, Solar Dragon, cjc, cook879 etc, but they tried to turn our site into an ad cluttered nightmare, and took away our customization rights with new terms and conditions. It's a long complex history, but about 60 wikis left Wikia in protest, including this one. If you want to edit at Wikia then that's completely fine although you should realise that they are all about profit while we have ads to keep this site running. --Smiley12 04:02, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Affliates[edit]

Can you email all our affliates that we have moved? FatHomerTalk 20:18, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

I have done. SNPP usually take a while to respond and I can't get hold of IWTSO. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 20:29, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

I mean Dead Homer Society, i don't know if there is more FatHomerTalk 20:32, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

The Voting...[edit]

Hi, next month there should be an easier question, because everybody doesn't know what those episode are. I know what the episode are about, and i've watched them. The question should be something like: "Who's your favorite character in the simpsons family" or "what is your favorite simpsons game"... FatHomerTalk 12:53, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Well, currently polls are broken so... ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 12:55, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
