This has been bugging me for a while, but who is Arckanghel? It says he's an admin, but he doesn't appear on the Sysop page. Also, he only has 20 edits under his name. Was he a friend of the founder or something?

Hehe, I thought the same thing. Arckanghel isn't an admin though, so I might remove him.

However, I do worry that Shane might appear, go insane and start deleting everything. Odd thoughts, but you never know. But don't worry, admins can be banned. I could ban myself if I wanted.

So Admins can be banned? So say if one of you guys went mad with power, you could just ban the other admins infinitely and then take over for yourself. Then you could rule the wiki in an oppresive regime of fear and domination. Fear keeping the lower classes in line, fear of random bannings. Scary thought. Please don't go crazy until after I've left.

@BH, I agree. With 15 mods, having a hodgepodge of summons or characters from different games would make the page look too messy. After all, it needs to be easy for newbies to know who they can turn to when they need assistance. I quite like the GF's for the moment, maybe in 3-4 months we can change it to the VI Espers?

Generally there seems to be a group or one mod appointed each month (in 2008 at least anyway (Faethin and Pansola in January, Netherith in February, Hexed and Good Drake in March & 8bit & Nelo in April)).

No, there are some deserving people who deserve to be listed here like most of our current moderators should have. What I'm trying to say is that Moderators are needed to keep the wiki standing -- Not to show good-editors above other editors.

TALK - Omnia mutantur, nihil interit. Everything changes, but nothing is truly lost. :
Bluerfn wants nothing to do with this wiki anymore, so he voluntarily removed himself from the Staff page and even somehow got his Admin status removed. Of course, AJ-Baby, I truly must doubt that you ever cared about Bluerfn or anybody for that matter, so what is your point?
Bluer should be mentioned. He should be mentioned up there, as an inactive admin. Yeah, he doesn't have his powers: but if he had just left and never returned, he would have been placed there. He got his powers removed by WikiaStaff and Diablo removed him from history. Whether Bluer asked for him to do that (likely) I don't know.

Still, just ignoring one of the greatest contributors to the FFWiki isn't right. He left because he felt he wasn't getting enough respect for all he was trying to do. To then have his name removed so he'll never be remembered for it. I don't know if it's just me, but I don't think that's right.  ILHI 12:28, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

AJDurai - A puppet which bends to the soul's tyranny.
TALK - What use is {{{time}}} if you're not gonna use it?

My point is that it is merely a ruse. If the so-called "departed" administrator HeckoX returned, then it is likely Bluerfn does as well. Though if that was so then he is merely one underprivileged person, and will likely to receive lesser respect than he ever thought he'd received in his short tenure. "Respect" aside, whatever happened to being a fan of the series? Such is unbecoming of an administrator...

On a more merry note, I do believe instead of Larsa, Shane613 should be given the image of Emperor Gramis - noting his apparent "death" and Diablocon be given the icon of Larsa to signify his continuation to servitude for the wiki. I failed to find that image, however. If anyone would be so kind? >:)

About that, CSM has been active recently. I removed the inactive comment but he don't got a portrait.
And a lot of the mods classed as inactive are hardly inactive. Just not as active as the six at the top. Netherith, Hexed and Nelo? I see Netherith editing every now and then, and Hexed was in RC earlier today I believe. Nelo has uploaded some art recently I think.  ILHI 15:56, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

CSS and JS Edit

Which staff member, if any one in particular, is it best to ask about implementing new CSS/JS? I was thinking it might be worth adding the "tabber" div class. An example implementation can be seen here, and I think it might be really useful. The proliferation of collapsible tables on this wiki, while not a problem, could be reduced. As an example application, this template has three collapsible sections, which could be replaced by tabs -- SN Cocoon Sig 22:25, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

There was a discussion in the forum once. I think people said no. Or I said no, and few else cared. One of the two. 88.108.93.113 22:29, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Aha, found it. Forum:Tabs for multi-encounter enemies. Netherith suggested it, I said I don't like them, and 8bit and Drake didn't understand it. Now two have shown interest, it's two for, one against. 88.108.93.113 22:37, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
I confess that I mainly want tabs 'cause I have a use planned in my Dissidia guide. In the end, my argument comes down to the one I used for USERNAME: basically we'd be adding it just for the sake of having another tool -- SN Cocoon Sig 08:47, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

It's just some CSS and JS code. It's not going to harm anyone if it's unused. We may not want use it in our articles, since our wiki's style is already defined and relies more on collapsible tables. Also, unlike KH wiki, which in the case of enemies, has one page for each of them and divides the information in tabs, we have several, and by several, I mean up to some 12 pages on an enemy with the same name. So we're not using tabs for those.

But if we ever do, even if it's not probable since we're so used to collapsable tables (<3), it's there. I vote yay. - Henryacores^ 09:58, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

Incidentally, there's still my initial question of whether there is one particular "best to ask" sysop when it comes to adding new CSS/JS. I just wanted to reiterate that enquiry; I'm sure I'm not the only user who has ever wanted to know this -- SN Cocoon Sig 10:10, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

Who used to be the one who added code here? Netherith 00:44, June 17, 2010 (UTC)

I have no idea how any of this works :] Any admin other than me would be better to ask. If any mod knows what's going on, please do voice your opinion... 8bit 04:11, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
Bluer, I think. - 11:26, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
@Anon: I thought you were gone ILHI (I'm assuming it's you because you said it was you in that Forum who voted against it, and the only person who was against it was ILHI). {{User:A.J. two/Sig2} 13:13, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
I em gone. 'sjust that something reminds me of the wiki, I visit, then I remember I started a discussion a while back, and return to keeping it going, and then get involved in other discussions. And then I stay on the wiki until every discussion I can remember is closed, or I'm reminded of the 'dead' feeling I got at ILHI's end. Last time it was that dead feeling.
Dynamic IP = amount of contribution since ILHI's end is masked. Yeah, usually it's a similar IP, but sometimes it changes to something completely random. And I've seen many other 88s. 88.108.120.183 16:13, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
So... should I go ahead and ask Bluer? @8bit, I know exactly what code to add, having successfully done so on my own wiki, but obviously I can't because I'm not a sysop on FFWiki. It's just a matter of permission, essentially -- SN Cocoon Sig 15:02, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

AdminshipEdit

Is it hard to be one of the admins? s̅̅s̅̅o̅̅r̅̅c̅̅̅̅e̅̅n̅̅i̅̅v̅̅i̅̅d̅̅

Colour?Edit

Who is responsible for changing the colour of links to this hideous teal colour? Please change it back, it actually hurts my eyes =/

Updating this thing Edit

Should it not be mentioned that Mymindislost is no longer active, nor is Crazyswords? And that ILHI now edits under the name JBed or as an anon?C A T U S E03:25, December 10, 2011 (UTC)

MMIL and CSM have been known to reappear once in a blue moon, and as for ILHI, I don't think the staff page is a proper place to chronicle his descent. I'm fine with the way it is. - +DeadlySlashSword+ 03:29, December 10, 2011 (UTC)
ILHI is no longer active. He has not come back as a staff member. No need to mention. 79.69.193.145 04:04, December 10, 2011 (UTC)

InactivityEdit

With this I am trying to call out staff members to pro-actively define their status of activity with accuracy and responsibility. I'm not suggesting the use of timetables to illustrate it, or other complex methods, but I believe that despite the purely voluntary nature of the workings of the website and without trying to have affect upon it at all, the availability and the focus of each staff member's attention should be made more clear.

Fellow wikians and staff memebrs, thank you for your attention to this message. - Henryacores^ 18:59, February 26, 2013 (UTC)

Put messages on talk pages. If they don't reply in four days they've failed the first test. :)
Also, ILHI IS DEEEEEEAD!! JBed (talk) 19:37, February 26, 2013 (UTC)
I'm sorry for the bluntness, but you didn't get the point. This is a request for each involved individual/user/staff member to take action and specify their situation, and is absolutely against that action by second or third parties. I personally oppose the enforcement of a status by anyone but the user, because users have a life beyond their time here, and I can assume that in most cases only they can be accurate.
The message also applies to active users which have a conditioned availability. So, the keyword of the message is "their". - Henryacores 20:17, February 26, 2013 (UTC)
I got the point-- Not that this is a place to discuss this, but if someone can't respond quickly to a request on their talk page then they are inactive, and if they later say otherwise they are either lying or their status has changed by the time they make a statement-- and then their stated status can be changed with their actual status. If a staff member happened to die, we shouldn't need them to tell us they are inactive to change it. That's all I'll say. JBed (talk) 20:32, February 26, 2013 (UTC)
If all staff members were more clear about their presence in the first place, then unusual situations like that would be more detectable. - Henryacores 20:43, February 26, 2013 (UTC)
Basically, transparency is the best approach. - Henryacores 20:47, February 26, 2013 (UTC)

Acknowledgements Edit

While I did separate the active admins/bcrats so that they matched the way the moderators were listed, I think we might want to consider keeping the acknowledgement section as one unified section. As they have no enhanced rights, nor are they likely to be sought out for questions, and it is may be less important if they are active or not. Thoughts?

I'm fine with leaving the acknowledgement section as is.

It should be kept as it is.
Yeah, I don't think there should be an active/inactive distinction for them since it's not important, but I don't feel strongly either way. --Shockstorm (talk) 05:48, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

I am also of the opinion that acknowledgements shouldn't be divided between active and inactive. The section is for acknowledgements of past work, and unlike staff, knowing whether an acknowledged user is still active isn't useful. JBed (talk) 13:17, July 21, 2013 (UTC)

Social media and bots Edit

Two things:

First thing, can we add Calca and Brina images for Intangir Bot and DrakeyBot respectively, and put them in their sections for Administrators? The bots have admin powers even if they don't use them for anything but editing locked topics, but it's probably important to mention that the bots are there (and that they are run by wiki staff).

Second and bigger thing is, I think we should add a section for the social media staff. That is, the ones who have the passwords to and update our Facebook, Twitter, Twitch and YouTube accounts. This is because it is semi-important to mention the people that update this stuff and can update it, and this is probably the most convenient place to list them. Technically, it doesn't relate to powers on the wiki, but they are wiki-related powers, and they are responsibilities on the wiki, as well as being things people should know about. And users in the Acknowledgement section have no powers anyway, yet still get mentioned here.
