General questions about Wikia

Section 1

How to change my user avatar?

Go to your profile and hover over a box located in the top right corner of your screen, just beside your username. A text "Edit avatar" will appear under the box, click the link and a new window will appear. You can upload your desired (appropriate) profile picture by clicking "Browse" and selecting it from the folder where it is placed in your computer. Click "Save, I'm done" to save changes.

I just registered to be a Wikian, but I wanna quit how do I do it?

An account cannot be deleted following its creation. If the user wishes to disable the account, read a help page about it here.

If you want to see if you have any messages, where do you go on your profile?

Go here and beside the tab "Profile", there is a tab called "Discussion" / "Talk" / "Message Wall". The tab contains the messages posted on the user's wall. Although the wikia bar, located at the top part of the screen, has a chat balloon icon on the right side intended to alert users if they have received any new messages. Just hover over the icon and a list of newest messages that the user has received will appear.

How do I report a comment?

If a comment is proven to be against the policy, it can be reported in the Admin's talk page or to the message wall of any active admins in both Vocaloid Wiki and Vocaloid Answers Wiki. Comments can also be reported to any active rollbacks in Vocaloid Wiki.

The same procedure can be used for related wikis, but understand those wikis have their own set of polices and Admins.

To report a comment, it is important that the URL of the comment must be linked in the message. The URL of the comment can be found by clicking the name of the user who posted the comment or the name, An anonymous contributor, if it is an unregistered user. After being redirected to their contributions, find the policy-violating comment that they made which has a format of:

  • Talk:<name of page>/@comment-<username or IP address>-<numbers>

Click the link and the page where the comment was posted will appear. The URL should now appear as:

  • /wiki/<name of page>#comm-<numbers>

Copy the part of the URL after /wiki/ and link it by putting brackets [[]] on each end.

It is important to note that images should be licensed properly, or at least sorted and must follow the image guidelines. They are not to be irrelevant to the wiki, violate wikia TOU, and must not solely be used for profile pages. Administrators give a warning with a alternative (Template:Imagehotlink) for linking images from image hosts; should the uploader fail to follow the image guidelines, the image is deleted.

For registered users, it is possible to use the search bar. In "Advanced", make sure that everything except the Message Wall is unticked. This works as long as they have contributed to this site.

How many people answer questions here?

It is undetermined how many contributors are active at any given moment. As of February 2013, this wiki is still undergoing maintenance. The direct link to this Answer wiki has been removed from the Vocaloid wiki and also the 'related' footers to slow down traffic from questioners.

The current admin of the wiki (User:Bunai82) is always active as she is the one carrying out the maintenance tasks. If you want to view user names who are currently active, see Special:ListUsers for a listing. However, there are also anonymous contributors (called IPs) who are active. Due to some IP users leaving false information or spamming, their replies should be viewed with caution until they are checked. This is not to say that every anonymous contributor has malicious intentions.

Since there are so many questions being asked here, how can I follow or be alerted of when a question of mine is answered?

Following

  • Watchlist shows all pages the user has visited that have changed recently.

Searching

  • Another alternative is to manually search a question, to see whether or not changes have been made to it since the user's last visit. It is possible to find a question by using the search bar, using a particular category tab or using the archive to find the question the user is looking for.

Profile

  • Questions the user asked recently should appear in the user's profile under "Recently Asked Questions". Or use can use 'Contributions' page.

Why aren't answers signed on Vocaloid Answers?

On Vocaloid Answers (and Wikianswers in general), the aim is to create the one best answer to any question. Lots of people should collaborate on an answer rather than simply appending their own answer.

Every person answering is attributed at the end of the question page in the answered by section so they do not need to sign specific parts of the answer. Doing so would make it harder for others to improve on the answer.
