Hello everyone,

We have received a few complaints about this wiki and the recent developments here. Ordinarily Wikia likes to let its community members sort out local issues for themselves, but after reviewing the situation it has become clear that we have to step in.

Wikis are community-owned projects, and as such they are governed by their users. Admins and Bureaucrats have a few extra rights, but that is to aid in the carrying out the smooth running of the wiki not to unilaterally change the focus of the wiki and "take over" with a group of hand-picked "clan" members. This definitely goes against the wiki spirit. So does labelling people as "enemies of the state" and blocking any user who does not agree with the current Admin team.

That being said, I am not 100% certain what the focus of the wiki was before. I honestly cannot tell. Maybe there was time for a change in direction and to be fair discussions like this are a step in the right direction.

Here is what I am going to do: Effective immediately, I have removed all user rights for the wiki from everyone who has them. I will not be restoring them until I see a real consensus for who should have them on this wiki. You can report any issues to me on my userpage here, or via Special:Contact. I have also removed the block from some users who have recently been barred from the wiki.

The goal is to encourage the community to come together and through open discussion, decide the future of the wiki. Things like its focus, name, and procedure for electing leadership all need to be decided. It may even be that the current activity was on the right traack, but the dicussion deserves to take place in a free and open context. For now, it can function without the extra user rights. Discussions like the one linked above are a great start to this process, and I would like to encourage more of them.
