wiki vandalism

Postby DAMartin » 23 Jun 2009 13:48

I was in the G.I. Joe wiki http://gijoe.wikia.com/wiki/Joepedia_-_ ... ._Joe_Wiki checking the recent changes and found this http://gijoe.wikia.com/wiki/A_Real_American_Hero

If, by some chance, it's already "repaired" when you see it, let me say it said, in capitals "A REAL AMERICAN HOMO". One thing is making jokes about G.I. Joe sometimes, but vandalizing a wiki is something totally differsent; it's despicable. What could we do about this?

Fix it yourself? I don't think there's much we can do, but I don;t know.

Maybe yu can report it to a mod and they can reinstate the old page? Guessing here.

Vandalism? The haven't erased the entire domain. Two clicks and it's repaired. This is nothing more than a practical joke. Very childish, but nevertheless funny, highschool humour.

Didn't we all pull a prank when we were younger?

Younger? Hold on a minute Jaye - let me get this straight - we are meant to have stopped pulling pranks when we reached adulthood? Well bugger me...

I found it more than just a prank; somebody could have gone to the wiki seeking info and found that. However, the Baron is right: I should have done something about it rather than just come here and whine about it.

Good news: The page was repaired (not by me; I went there and saw it repaired) :-D

We're collecting wee dollies, so bottom down we are still adolescents! :D

Well, technically it is still information: after all they are gay with their Village People outfits... ;)

Hmm, thinking we need a thread for outing the gay Joes...

I think Law and the Dreadnok Torch would be better than :mutt: and Leatherneck...

Well, those were gay charas based on appearance, but I have one based on story... Xamot! In "The Spell of the Siren", the male Joes who were kept free were not there when the Siren song was used on the Pit, and :destro: was intentionally kept free by :baroness: . What's Xamot's excuse? Even though he was absent too, he should have felt what Tomax felt.

I think the golden rule is whether or not the Joe has a 'tache.
