Regarding ban appeals from the original SW Wiki

Hey all, I hope you've all been well -- or at least, that's what I would've liked to say if not for the reason I needed to make this post.

I've recently noticed a few users coming here for the sole purpose of appealing bans incurred on the original SW wiki. While I understand that users will want to appeal bans that they feel are unfair, I will need to ask that you consider doing so via Community Central rather than here:

This wiki was set up specifically to focus on fan fiction written by SW authors, and allowing this place to become an appeal ground for bans from the other wiki would significantly detract from the focus on authors' works. This wiki may indeed have strong ties to the other one, particularly having been set up and maintained by members from the original wiki -- but I ask that you do not bring disputes and issues over here, and respect that this place is actually for the writers and readers.

Please also be aware that I am not here to discuss disputes or events on the original SW wiki -- as much as I sympathise with the frustration of conflicts, I am acting as someone who wishes to maintain this place's purpose as distinctly for fan fiction readers and writers, and that involves setting appropriate boundaries where necessary.

I feel for you Undead. Mainly they try to reach me here for me to help them a ban. I am not going to go against my fellow admin's judgement.

Agreed Undead, disputes should not be brought to a place where fancfictions are, if I said that correctly.

If the banned idiots didn't follow the rules of the original wiki, then they most likely wouldn't follow the rules of this one either. 

I do agree with everything said, though. I'm sick and tired of these pigs exploiting this wiki to get around a ban. 

My suggestion to everyone is to just ban them here ahead of time. I did so for Stryker and his 3 accounts already.

Wasn't it always like that? if you're banned in the other, then you're also banned here.

Under the view that the fanfiction wiki's community is an extension of the game wiki's, then yes, that logic holds. However, I'm finding that the activity over here is becoming more distinct and separate from that of the other wiki: it's starting to resemble a "nearby house" as opposed to an "adjacent room" (the general tone, attitude and demographic here is distinct from the game wiki).

That could always change quite rapidly, but I don't think there's a pressing need to get the admins here to automatically duplicate all imposed bans. They're certainly allowed to do so if they feel that it's necessary, but as long as there's a relative degree of separation between the communities of the two wikis and people do not exploit this place as a ban circumvention (as has been done in the past), I personally don't feel that it's necessary as of this post.

EDIT:

I noticed that people on the Black Dawn Wiki are more calm then on the original SW Wiki,and that also goes in here.So I would say-Give someone a chance here,unless they did something terrifying on the original Wiki(vandalised pages,deleted threads,openly threathened to admins/staff)

O

uch Silent ^^ why do I feel like your post is directed at me? Lol no offense meant Silent, I'm actually a brilliant adult, just get a little hot-headed sometimes. I'm a new wiki user, so I didn't know I could utilize the community central to contact admins. Please forgive me all. It was not my intention to clutter this wiki with my unnecessary requests. Sorry to all for my behavior.

I don't see banned users in SW Wiki to appear in BH:BD wiki. However, this site is mostly for banned users in SW Wiki to find out the more 'understandable' reason and their own reason of action that causes their own ban, but this wiki must for all writers/fan fiction readers to go here, not to clutter their own reasons of ban here on this wiki.

BH:BD Wiki is the offspring of Star Warfare Wiki because it's one of the Freyr releases, and an active site.

So, it means that mostly people don't get their chance, because it may possible to create another chaos.
