Welcome to D&D Wiki![edit]


Hello Kinkong0627, and welcome to D&D Wiki! I hope you are enjoying D&D Wiki and have been finding the information here useful. Before you start contributing, we recommend you make sure your user preferences match your preferences.


If you have any questions about a specific page please ask it on that page's talk page. If you have a D&D-related question, you can ask it on DnD Discussions. Everything relating to D&D Wiki's administration can be asked here. If you need to contact another user, please use their talk page.


Syntax can be very difficult, and if you need help a good place to start is Help:Editing on Wikipedia (or even their Introduction page). This will explain basic wiki formatting and should provide quite a few useful links that explain more specific areas of wiki formatting. Help:Portal also provides detailed explanation of information important specifically to this community.


A strong and welcoming community exists on D&D Wiki, and I'm sure you will find us friendly. To enable the community to function, a number of policies are in effect. Most importantly, we follow and expect you to follow Wikipedia's guidelines on civility and etiquette when discussing anything. As most work has multiple authors, please do not delete content without following our removal process. When posting a comment on a talk page, please ensure you sign your name with four tildes (~~~~) or by clicking on the signature icon (Signature icon.png). This will automatically produce your name and the date. I hope you come to enjoy D&D Wiki and the community. Welcome again, you are now a D&D Wikian. --Yanied (talk) 13:30, 8 March 2020 (MDT)


Hello there Kinkong0627, I regret to inform you that you have received a warnings for plagiarizing content on the Au'Ra race. Specifically you have copied over text from that comes directly from ffxiv's character creation according to the ffxiv's wiki's citation on the text. In the future, I hope you can not copy or make edits to already existing pieces of work and claim them as your own work by submitting it to the wiki. In addition, I would recommend you check out the wiki's policies on various other things so this mistake does not happen again. Thanks, --Blobby383b (talk) 11:18, 10 April 2020 (MDT)

Created Works Removal[edit]

Hey Kinkong! As stated, I am reaching out on Wiki proper to discuss wiki communication & removal or your contributions.
I've looked over your contributions and I don't see anywhere you reached out (while logged in) to ask for help, or seeking any assistance with editing on the wiki. If I am not mistaken, our communication on the wiki and lack of help was a majority of your issue with the site. I do take pride in responding and helping users on the site and might be a little in my feelings at such harsh criticism when we weren't afforded the opportunity to help.
In regards to the warning, I can assume you saw your welcome message if you are aware of the warning. The welcome message speaks on our policies, which mentions our warning system, a clickable link to Help:Warning Policy. I admit there is a culture curve to the wiki, one I struggled with myself when I joined since new users really gotta navigate to help themselves unless they know where to ask. Regardless, the site's rules for plagiarism are posted there and Admins have the right to handle violations using their best judgement. The plagiarism rule, which is a pretty basic and fundamental no-no for any literary work, was broken and a warning issued. The admin Blobby383b communicated the violation succinctly and efficiently on your talk page. I see no issue with the way they handled it especially considering a {{needsadmin}} template sat on the page for weeks that information was directly copied from another site.

I want to add that a note was placed on the "talk page" of the article you were warned for having plagiarized content due to the "Needs Admin" template, which there was never a response to that either. We were only contacted after you were warned. There was plenty of time to remove the questionable material, comment on a talk page, or reach out on the admin page.

Lastly, the removal of your contributions. I for one am a proponent of removing contributions for people, but in good faith. My understanding is that you want to remove the material because you violated a rule and got a warning. A warning that means nothing until you get three, if that even happens. None the less, the way we handle the situation is the contributor marks the pages they wish to be removed, {{delete}}. An admin will review the page to ensure the deletion has a proper and correct reason before deleting the article.
Again, I am sorry this wasn't the experience you expected. I hope I've helped inform you on some things, and successfully explained the totality of the situation. I look forward to hearing from you. OH! on the left hand side of a page, at the bottom, there's an option to "Email User" if you are on a user's page and if they have that set up. There's lot of little helpful things on a wiki, you just gotta ask :-) Cheers! Red Leg Leo (talk) 07:15, 16 April 2020 (MDT)
