I make contributions but they are erased or altered. Why is this?
Because Mobius Encyclopaedia a wiki-style website, you have to understand that while you may make contributions to articles they will not always be around, as numerous users contribute, modify and fine tune articles over time.
However, there are also occasions where people will make contributions which do not follow the site's Manual of Style, or the information is downright false. For these reasons, information may be removed shortly after it is added by the site's staff. If you believe that your contributions are needlessly being erased, you can contact the user who is making the changes to ask why on their talk page, or the talk page of the article. Additionally, if you feel that a user is deliberately removing your contributions with no legitimate reason, contact the site's administrators and staff.
Legitimate reasons contributions are removed or altered include (but are not limited to):
- -Contributions do not follow the site's Manual of Style
- -Contributions do not properly reference their sources
- -Contributions are not related to Archieverse material
- -Contributions are/contain false information, SPAM or gibberish
Why am I not able to edit some pages?
Certain pages or templates on this site have restricted the editing permission to administrators and site staff only. Reasons for this vary, but it is typically site policy pages or templates which will cease to function if they are altered that have the editing options limited. Additionally, pages that are likely to be vandalised may sometimes be locked. During an edit war, pages may be locked if the problem is not resolved by the parties involved on the article's talk page or elsewhere.
I uploaded an image but it was deleted. Why?
Images significantly aid in complimenting articles and we encourage you to upload images from the comics if you think they will contribute to an article. However, when uploading images it is mandatory that you add the non-free use rationale template and fill out all of the fields so that there are no copyright infringements. Mobius Encyclopaedia would not exist if not for the Archie Sonic comics and we have the utmost respect for the people who provide us with the series and therefore provide credit where it is due. If you do not include the information required on the non-free use rationale template, your uploaded image will be deleted by site staff within one week. Images may also be deleted if the image is not being used on any articles.
Which style of English does the site use?
Mobius Encyclopaedia was created by a Canadian citizen and thus the primary English spelling used is Canadian/British English (hence spelling it "Encyclopaedia"). However, as the comics are an American publication and a lot of its readers are located in the United States, American-English is also permitted.
I'm a registered user but I cannot upload an image for an article. Why?
Due to frequent misuse and vandal attacks in the past image uploading has been disable for all users except for site staff. If you have an image you would like to upload and include in an article, post a link to the image here, or contact one of the site administrators who will upload the image for you. Be sure to include the relevant information for the Non-free use rationale.
