What's on your mind?
After all we are no longer switching wikis. I put back my deleted article (I believe it is not spam). Also I updated Universe and Observable Universe.
He hasn't been active on BU and the only time he is is when one of his spam pages gets deleted or the BU homepage gets improved. He hasn't helped the wiki and has actually caused more spam to happen. If you guys agree that he should be demoted, say yes in the comments, and if you dont, say no in the comments.
All these number pages are Googology wiki clones, and they aren’t ontopic anyways. As I’m from there, I think we should remove all the GoogologyWiki pages that aren’t well-known (e.g. Mejillion) , but keep anything original like the yriad chain because Googology Wiki is too strict to accept that.
What has happened to the font
Its garbage and hard to read
Put more effort into your pages please. If I see any more stub articles, it's an immediate one day block, no more warnings. Follow the guidelines for BU and make DECENT pages at least. For example, the universe, the axis, the box, etc are all good pages. TRY and make your pages at LEAST 2 paragraphs long AND with an infobox. We're trying to improve the wiki and you guys aren't helping.
Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a well evening. I am Mctoran, a bureaucrat of Beyond Universe Wiki. Recently, 1917 Darwin, the founder of this wiki, has been permanently banned from this wiki, along with every single one of his alts. Needless to say, he should not anymore be a problem, at least not immediately. If darwin tries to make another account on this site, a swift IP ban shall come upon him.
Now, with that having been settled, I am going to address one of this wiki's biggest problems. It's...well, it's just garbage. This wiki has the lowest quality out of every other cosmology wiki, even AD, which is ironic considering that this is the largest verse wiki.
Now, I have tried to solve this problem various ways. I've hatched numerous schemes in an attempt to get BU deleted and replace it with a new one. And I've done many dirty and ethically questionable things in the process, such as banning every user in an attempt to redirect them all to the new wiki I was trying to build up. Is that dirty? Scummy? Well sure, but in my head the ends justified the means. And I at least am man enough to admit in public for all to hear that, yes, I did do those things.
Anyways, however, it seems that my efforts to take down BU are finally exhausted, as FANDOM has chosen to turn a blind eye and is basically forcing us to either break our backs in the effort of restoring this wiki, or abandoning it and leaving it to burn to the ground. Of course, I am going to go with the former, since the entire reason I've gone to the lengths I have was so that BU could have a chance at normalcy.
So, since deleting BU is no longer an option, the only thing that can be done is to improve it. And it's going to take a crap ton of work. But I am willing to carry this out, and I have already deleted 100 spam articles today as can be seen. And, as can also be seen, the rules have been updated to be stricter. Many more changes like these are to come, but the process will be very low unless there will be other users who are willing to help my in my efforts if cleaning up some and improving this wiki.
By now you probably think I'm insane, and you are right. I am an absolute nutcase and I've lost my damn mind, but my madness and obsession is the only force that will give me the motivation and commitment to restore this wiki to its proper state. Everything I have done to this wiki, as hard as it may sound, was out of my love for it, even if a tough love at that.
So, in conclusion, know that I am here, and I am going to Reclaim Jerusalem with everything I have. I will not go down without a fight, vandals. So come at me, but know that you will dearly regret your actions if you choose to continue spamming on this wiki.
v below wrong
This wiki cannot be revived. People are spamming everywhere, unregistered users are making spam pages here and there, and the last remaining registered users aren't taking the wiki very seriously either.
Hello. This is an official statement from Beyond Universe Wiki to inform you all that this wiki will be blanked by VSTF, and that the community of Beyond Universe will be ported to a new wiki. We wanted to give you all the courtesy of warning you in advance, so that you can be ready when this wiki is officially closed. As for why we have decided to close down BU, it has so much spam of low effort pages and plagiarism that any noteworthy/high quality pages get left in the dust. This makes editors of said high-quality pages feel like their pages aren’t getting viewers/recognition, and it discourages them from staying on the wiki and continuing to contribute. Also, it affects how new viewers/editors view Beyond Universe by driving them(the good ones) away, attracting only spammers and vandals. In addition to this, the founder of Beyond Universe, UniversePoker777/1917 Darwin isn’t attempting to make such a unfavorable situation at least somewhat tolerable; he is encouraging people to spam, giving random people(most likely his alts) bureaucratic positions for no reason, contributing to low quality pages himself, causing arguments, etc. Overall, he is not fit for a managerial position, most especially since he is underage, which is why the official decision has been made to migrate to another wiki. To prevent the situation that BU has got itself into from occuring again, we have formally chosen for 1917 Darwin to be excluded from this new wiki. In addition to this, rules will be made stricter to make the wiki’s content be more read-worthy. This will attract more readers and editors, and ensure a stronger community.
Do not worry about losing any of your pages on this wiki or having to archive them; the entire source text of this wiki has already been saved in an XML file, so if you find that your article is not already on the new wiki, come talk to 08ravennew or VoidSansXD and they will retrieve/upload any pages that you request, so long as they meet the criteria of the new wiki's quality standards. We hope you understand our decision, and to the real contributors: you will now soon have a wiki where you will finally be seen and heard. And to any potential spammers and vandals who try to follow us onto the new wiki: a permanent IP ban will be swift if you attempt to ruin or otherwise negatively alter any pages there. So it goes without saying that you should only contribute to the new wiki if you actually want to contribute. Anyways, we shall include a link to the new Wiki here. Please note that it may still be undergoing some finishing-touch construction and renovation, so not all formatting/templates will be there yet. However, it is at least in a state where it is functioning and operational, so you can immediately start contributing: https://2nd-beyond-universe.fandom.com/wiki/2nd_Beyond_Universe_Wiki
There are going to be new requirements for BU. I know this may sound strict at first and completely against the entire point of why BU is unique, BUT we need better pages due to the fact that a significant majority of our pages are spam.
1.) At LEAST 5 sentences. Only less if there is NOTHING else to say about the verse/article.
2.) Have an infobox/template. If there is no template, it will get removed as well as all other pages with no template. However, this doesn't apply to high effort pages with no templates.
3.) Make sure you have good grammar. Bad grammar pages have been getting spammed recently, and unless that's the point of the pages, this isn't good and will negatively impact how mature we look as a community.
4.) You will ONLY get TWO warnings before temporary blocks start happening. If you get blocked for 1 day, then the next time you'll get blocked 3 days, then a week, then a month, etc.
5.) At least 1 category and at least 1 link. If there's 0 links and 0 categories, it will be considered spam, no matter how good the page is. It won't be deleted, just classified as a stub or you will be given a warning.
Thanks for reading these new guidelines and have a good day.
