I do not know.
What's on your mind?
Over the past few months, the SFC WIKA staff has been working on cleaning up and improving our dear wiki. As you might have noticed, categories are being added and removed from your pages. Rest assured that this is nothing out of the ordinary. That would be the bot doing its job.
Please refrain from creating unnecessary categories at this time. Categories such as.. 'Wears a skirt' or 'Likes cheese' are totally useless and will be removed if found. Please, only link what is necessary to find your pages.
With that being said, a few more changes will be coming to the wiki. Specifically the front page. We will be adding eight new categories to the front page in a similar design to that of the Sonic Fannon Wiki.
Several contests will be held at once to determine the face of each category.
THIS INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
-Stories (Fanfiction and/or roleplaying)
-Fan Games/Fan Projects
Thank you for reading and have a good day.
The wiki staff has been meaning to do this for literal years. We'll be improving the wiki standards from this point on, starting with the categorization of pages. If you are a standard user and see that your pages have been edited in rapid succession. Do not worry. Here is the format that wiki staff members shall be putting it in. While the Category changes will not start immediately, it will hopefully start by monday, October 2nd, 2017.
Old Category -> New Category
Old Category -> Delete
Greetings and salutations, fellow contributors. As of now we the staff have decided to remove the default wikia chat due to its generally dead nature. Of recent, the FANDOM staff has made it possible to integrate Discord servers into the wiki. So! As of now the wiki now has a Discord.
If you are unfamiliar with the Discord servers, this is another chat system similar to Skype. For more information please go here.
Thank you and good day! 🦉
For any complaints about newer features to the wiki that were published by the development team, please post them here. Do not post them on pages/comment threads/and or blogs.
Just a heads up and any inconvenience for any posting delays, currently looking "under the hood" of the Wiki.
Hello, there it is The-Bismarck here wanting to open this thread for the listing of known broken Wikia features that the average user will see. If you guys see any noticeable features that are broken, please comment here and they will be taken care of.
We are currently doing a wiki wide clean up of all the unwanted, clattered and unfinished character pages on this wiki, along with characters that do not meet our standards and also the many roleplay pages that have died since moving to the forums. If you do not want your character deleted, please, please, PLEASE put the "Under Construction" Template on it if it does not meet standards so we don't delete it by accident. Our Page Creation standards are in our Wiki Rules I believe, if not, ask an admin, I'm sure they can direct you were you need to go to find out what the standards are.
If we do delete one of your pages, please do not get angry at us or harrass our staff; it is not all their fault it was deleted, it was either unspecified as "under construction" or did not meet standards. If you do have a page deleted, we can get it back, so please don't cause strife. We're trying to FIX the wiki, not make it worse.
Thank you for your patience.
After much discussion with many users, we've decided to change how we handle roleplays on the Wiki. From now on all non-Chat roleplays will take place in the new Roleplay board. This decision was made due to the overabundance of dead roleplay pages that are clogging up the Wiki. Any active, in-progress page roleplays will continue on the main wiki, but any new ones will be deleted and the user who created it will be redireted to the forums. If anyone has any questions leave them here.
i just got kicked for asking why my page gets deleted and wich rules it broke.
my page does not violate any rules. as i asked them what rule i broke, i got kicked :C
i just want to keep my char and know why he is a "joke" while pages like captain bird still exist
captain bird: http://sonicfanchara.wikia.com/wiki/Captain_Bird
i think that it is unfair that the admins defend captain brid that much although he is a joke char.
sorry for the bad english,
i am tired, and also not a native english speaker.

Some people have told me or ive heard that most people fear me, or avoid me, even to the point of saying that Im not fitting for adminship, just because of how unstable I can get. For most, I could not stop apologizing for my behavior when it came to conversation. Or when in chat I would be in able to make a quick desision and become fustraited or just simply excuse myself.
Well tonight....ive decided to be open on why I am acting the way I am. I have been though alot of....things in my 21 years of living. From sexual harassment from another student onto myself, to having to deal with a very disfuctional family, being overweight, and having to start my adult life. Pretty much, ive had a crappy life and its not going to get easier. The thing is, like most people, I have to live with most of these scars these things of the past, while every day now, I have to deal with people yelling in my ears 24/7, having to try and find ways of losing weight, while also trying to find a job i could apply for that I can do until Im well fit again.
Insecurity, lonliness, and among other things anger and rage; are what I have been going through since gradutation. Ive been scared to say the wrong thing to people, to end up ruining my life because of one slipup. Been afaid to be alone all of my life, to be stuck in a small junky horrible house, and angry because I couldnt take the steps to help myself. And it shows while Im doing my admin duties on the wiki. Which beings me to this.
Please....understand where I come from...and why I act the way I do. Ive not explained myself 100% due to well...wikia being wikia....but everyone. I love you. I love this site and everything in it. I just wish to make friends with you all and to move on from this. We are in the middle of wiki restoration from after months, maybe years of misfortune and darkness. Together we can push it back for good and make this a more friendler and vibrant wiki!
Hello, this is The-Bismarck here want to give a big greeting to the Deviant Group "SonicOcsareAWESOME", "sonicfancharackters", and to any newer members that join. As you all know our wiki now has a DA Group and is now affiliated with the SonicOcsareAWESOME and sonicfancharackters groups. So again welcome to our wiki and enjoy your stay.
Hey guys this is The-Bismarck here stating that while me and staff were looking for ideas to improve our community.
We noticed over 100+ pages are without categories.
With that said, I would like to ask if the community would like to help out and add the missing categories.
Please do not add "opinion categories" (stated in our rules), also do not use the "Mary Sue" category unless it is put on by someone from the administration.
Thank you and have a nice day ^^.
We have created a Deviantart Group for the Wiki! *airhorn*
Hello fellow SFCW members, its The-Bismarck here letting you all know that staff is currently looking over the wiki's policies and regulations. While looking them over, we decided to update our "Page Creation Policy". If you have any thoughts or suggestions on them please read over the "Page Creation" blog and state your suggestions here ^^'.
Link to the Policy page:
Hello guys thought I'd make a post to address the fact that the main page is well boring and hardly updated.
It makes us look in active and is a feature we should consider using more to draw attenstion active areas of the wiki.
If your unsure on how to update the wiki I will write out a guide.
But for now I need ideas and active most likely popular areas of the wiki
I'd like to start with something to do with the community project SFCW: Dimensional Beatdown
I need things for updating.
Updated and active
Roleplays and stories
And in general new ideas for the wiki.
am thinking of putting areas of importance on the forms to think about.
The rules and such are all good and fine but we need to advertise it looks boring.
point is everything on there is boring and outdated.
We need to use it a bit more throw some ideas this way.
I'm deleting pages:
1. Short pages
2. Old pages from inactive users
3. Joke characters
"But FROOOOZ, you deleted my page!!"
Ye, sorry. Deal with it. If you really need the information back, you can ask me to undelete the page. I'll delete it when you got what you needed, thought.
Also, I'm gonna try to minimize the ammount of categories and images. Ty bbys
Wikia is currently screwing with chat; To get on, use http://preview.sonicfanchara.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Chat
I've got a complaint again and next time I'll consider taking down the chat for a month or two. Guys, please, respect each other. The chat's not here to make people uncomfortable and depressed.
