Hello, Sturmkrieger! — Welcome to WikiIndex :-)
WikiIndex aims to build bridges between wiki communities. We hope that you will enjoy browsing and editing this site.

Our goal is to make an index of all wiki sites. We appreciate your help in our quest.

Your contributions are greatly valued.

Do not import drama and/or vandalize in the process[edit]

This is a friendly warning you need to bear in mind if you decide you want to edit on this wiki again:

We may allow biased points of view to an extent (some people like to promote their wikis, which we tolerate and encourage), but accusing another wiki or its users of racism, idea theft/hijacking, or whatever else you alleged in the Sturmkrieg article is completely unacceptable. We do not care why you believe this or want others to believe these allegations, but regardless, we do not want you or any other editor vandalizing pages for the reasons you did, especially for the purposes of exporting drama and being hateful.

If you wish, you can make a page for your own wiki, and so long as you show some tact and explain why your wiki is clearly better or a more preferable option (as some people do when comparing their wiki to a Wikia fork) in reasonable language minus hateful accusations, libel, and exported drama, then you are free to do so.

If you cannot do this and persist in doing what earned you your first block, you will be blocked again, possibly indefinitely.

Very creative article there... I also see you were blocked for a week for it. @Arcane, because Sturmkrieg is non commercial, I doubt he can commit libel against us. Regardless, I wouldn't really consider his actions defamatory in general, as people will probably just realize that he's completely insane. I think the more he self promotes, the fewer readers he'll have. Inquisitor Ehrenstein (talk) 13:10, 3 March 2013 (PST)

Re:Sturmkrieg[edit]

First, let me just say I appreciate you were able to send me a polite message and that you understand how to be civil.

But, let me make this clear: I do not care nor wish to care about your conflicts with the owner of another wiki, their personal history, nor yours. I am here to help users of WikiIndex, and to be frank I have no interest in the personal affairs of others, especially those of apparent rival wiki administrators, so I must ask you please do not bring up those topics again.

However, as to making a page for your Wiki fork, I'm afraid your wiki would be considered a fork, as I could find no "predecessor" wiki to sturmkrieg.com, so I would suggest starting a page for your wiki with a title like "Sturmkrieg.tk" or something similar to distinguish it from sturmkrieg.com.

Further, I would make sure to mention (minus any personal attacks on the owner of the other wiki) why your fork exists. Something to the effect of how your wiki forked due to differences of opinion regarding the influences behind the fanfiction universe portrayal of the content portrayed on sturmkrieg.com would be acceptable. Wikis fork all the time due to disagreements with style, bias, or content differences, but that does not make your wiki any less valid than the wiki you forked from, and vice versa.

I have enough knowledge of Warhammer 40000 (I'm a casual fan of the franchise) that I understand this can be a contentious issue, and as an administrator I'm trying to remain impartial here, so if you need further help with creating the page for your wiki, feel free to contact me for further assistance.

I understand what you are saying, but as for the name of the wiki, I'm afraid it's a "first come, first served" situation here concerning the wiki name, but you could further distinguish your wiki to reflect it's stated intent (i.e. - True Sturmkrieg Wiki or some similar name), which is probably the best possible solution for your wiki naming concerns. Also, a wiki fork is a wiki created separate from the original owners of the original wiki, but with the same or similar goals and intentions (aside from what prompted the creation of the fork). In this case, your wiki would be the forked wiki, since the other wiki in question was founded first. Arcane (talk) 16:04, 15 March 2013 (PDT)Arcane

Last warning[edit]

Please do NOT use WikiIndex for your petty disagreements. Do NOT rename articles to names which could antagonise and promote bad feelings between other valued WikiIndex editors.

You have already been warned by another site administrator regarding your conduct - we will not tolerate any further disgretions. Please take this as your last warning - you are most welcome to make constructive edits, and even valid commentary on other wikis, but we need to make it very clear where to draw the line. NO personal attacks, and NO antagonistic bitching of other wikis. If you do - you will be banned indefinately. :(

If you need to seek further advice, please feel free to contact me or any of the other site administrators, best regards :) --Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmintalk2HH 13:05, 16 March 2013 (PDT)
