  • Hey Alex, I have a new proposal for the wiki's policies.

    Right now, we still have an absurd number of images on this wiki that remain to be categorized. As long as people churn out images like a catholic pez dispenser, I don't see that problem going away.

    With that in mind, here's my idea for a policy update:

    "For every image that you upload, you must completely categorize two images. If it is unclear how to do so, ask an Admin. A list of images that must be categorized can be found here: Special:UncategorizedFiles ."

    • that would certainly make life much, much easier. or better yet ban all images.

    • I'm against an all-out image ban, I just want people to be responsible with their uploads.

    • I like this idea, but we also need to enforce this new rule. So far, I only spot very few users which is responsible with their files, meanwhile the rests seems don't know or don't care, I'm not sure which is right to refer them. If this new rule is applied soon, I propose that we block users which are not categorizing their files for some periods of times (of course only if they still not doing so after being warned a few times).

      Admins also need to watch the uploaded files and set a good example for users, unlike that Agent which put a gallery tumor to Rendezvous without bother to categorizing or even captioning them. It took me 2 days to categorizing them, while I've giving up on captioning them.

    • @Bren Banning all image uploading is a bit over the top.

      I like this new policy, as long as we're consistant with enforcing it. We should be prepared to start handing out blocks to users who consistantly leave their photographs untagged following a warning or two.

    • Yes, but let's keep the blocks minor, just about 6 hours at a time, and keep them permited to edit their own walls. Also, let's try to be nice to people who are unclear on the policy. That being said, I am going to update the rules.

    • We might want to consider talking to wikia about disabling the multi-uploader on this wiki, since it's being abused.

    • I am prepared to enforce this, and have ammended the rules as such.

    • I don't think repeat offenders should get 6 hours everytime. Their's should increase, but those can be judged on a case by case basis. 

      I'm not sure about disabling the multi-uploader though. It would create a lot more work for those editors who do follow the policies and know what they are doing.

    • We'll increase the ban time for each active violation.

      Regarding disabling the multi-uploader, that's just an idea. I doubt wikia would allow that anyway.

    • The rule is now in effect.

    • how do you plan on telling the users

    • The rules have been updated, and I will send out a forum announcement tomorrow.
