Schedule Changes (Personal Life) Leads to Minor Free Time Amount; October 20th, 2015

So, after extensive schedule changes (and still more to be made), I've freed up some small amount of time every night and weekend for myself. I've decided that I will contribute at least 1 hour per month maintaining this website. Meaning, that I will not add content to it, but rather monitor changes made and fix problems added, such as, inappropriate language and foul mouth, inappropriate content added, and spam content added. If you see any of these problems, please, report them directly to my page, as I still receive email alerts for messages directly on my user page.

Extremely Busy Life - No One Else Steps Up!

I am unable to spend much, if any, time on monitoring or contributing towards this wiki due to my extremely busy life and no one stepping up in over a year to be a new Admin. Now, with less than a month remaining before release of Season 3, I'll be extremely busy and there will be no one else to run things. On top of that, but I prefer to give people a proper test/timetable before handing them adminship and risking them wreaking havoc on the Wiki. So, since there is only a month left, it is not enough time for a new Admin.

However, members can still step up and try to be as professional as possible, while attempting to handle situations that may arise. This will automatically get you some eyebrow-raising by me, which should look good for your future Adminship.

I really wish that my life was slightly more different and that I had more time, but I'm to the point where I'm hoping that this wiki does not receive as much attention during Season 3 release, and it should help maintain a stable community - less chaotic than having thousands of people edit per day.

Update: Added Pre-Content of Season 3; March, 28th, 2015

Sorry guys for not being here much for the longest time, as I've been really, really busy. I've been focusing more on my Paid Work, rather than my Unpaid Work. This Wiki constitutes as Unpaid Work.

Anyways, I've added as much Pre-Content as I can in an effort to prepare for Season 3 and to provide you guys with more updates on the upcoming Season 3. I've also added a new poll on the home page! I hope you like it and continue to use this wiki with ease! Deathdealers747 (talk) 17:11, March 28, 2015 (UTC)

Update: Edited The Theme of the Wikia; July 10th, 2014

So, I decided to edit the Theme of the Wikia, to provide a more welcoming/soothing theme. Hopefully, this helps to create a much better atmosphere/environment for the Wikia.

Have any feedback regarding this change? Place it in the appropriate forum location! Thanks!

Update: First 7 Episodes of Season 2 Pages Made; June 15th, 2014

Thanks to the impressive work of Wikipedia members, as always, I have created the pages for the first 7 out of 13 episodes for Season 2, due to their episode names (and some other information) being released to the public.

Update: I (Primary Admin of this Wiki) Will Be Absent in May-July; May 2nd, 2014

I just wanted to post a notice to those followers of this wiki, indicating that I will not be here, or be here as actively for the months of May through July (June included). This information specifically pertains to my moving situation, setting up of internet at the new rental property, setting up of the computers, helping with the move, packing, etc. It will be so unbelievably hectic for me that I won't even try to get on here, due to high levels of stress. I will only try if I receive an email alert (from any pages that I'm following or my profile).

When I cleaned up the wiki and made the forum posts back in January, I was searching for an Admin to replace me, given enough time to go by to ensure that the Admin wouldn't wreak havoc. Well, unfortunately, no one responded. Now, in June, will be the release of Season 2 of Defiance; this will be our peak season, with upwards of 300 unique visits per day. This means that a potential of 300 or more edits per day could occur, and we currently have no one left to maintain the organization and accuracy of the wiki (Gaarmyvet may be persuaded, but he has lost interest in the series).

Another unfortunate item, is the fact that Defiance/Syfy/Trion has not released any information about the titles of Season 2; as such, I cannot add a Season 2 directory to this wiki. Perhaps, I will attempt a rudimentary version involving sequential numbers, to compensate for future edits, until such time that I can return.

Another unfortunate problem, is that another 50 or so base-items involving casts, directors, writers, etc. still have yet to be added to the infoboxes (admin-access only) or as a profile page on this wiki. I say "base-items" due to the fact that each item may require 3-4 page edits/creations. At 3 page edits/creations per base-item, lasting 5 minutes per edit/research, it comes out to 12.5 hours of work to be done.

Update: New Background, New Forum, New Improvements; January 26th, 2014

I added another Forum Category to allow for Positive and Negative Feedback towards improvements made on the wiki. I've also changed the background, to allow for a better feel when navigating the wiki. I've also done some housecleaning, to make sure that the proper links, redirects, and spelling is in order. New Forum Categories may yet come!

--Deathdealers747 (talk) 21:49, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

Update: New Forum Category: Admin Requests; January 24th, 2014

So, I have created a new forum category with the rules being specified. The forum can be found under the "Community" tab on the Main Toolbar (top of every page).

Update: User Blocked and Dead Zone Information; Janurary 24th, 2014

So, unfortunately, a user decided to make 3 edits involving complete and full deletion of information, while adding in childish content. So, they have been blocked for 3 months.

In other news, this wiki site has become quite the dead zone as of late. I'm going to attempt to make another Home Page survey, while also looking into creating a page to suggest/request Admin for this wiki. I won't step down, but I barely come here as is. Plus, I've lost all interest in this show and haven't paid attention to it at all.

Update: Protection Added to Season 1 Episodes; July 30th, 2013

People keep deleting information on Season 1 Episode pages, whether the information is true or not, and/or replacing it with false or unreferenced information in the process. Due to the majority of these users being brand-new and/or unregistered users, I've placed protection on these pages that'll only allow user's that have been here for at least 1 month to edit the pages.

If you have information to place on the page, you can direct it through me first. Deathdealers747 (talk) 17:18, July 30, 2013 (UTC)

Reminder: Free and Paid Host Episodes; July 29th, 2013

Today I received a friendly reminder of what tends to happen after a television show or movie is no longer provided on a common basis by the main sources of legitimate companies, television channels, and websites. What usually happens is that other users or guests will attempt to advertise a website that will provide content for the episodes that you may have missed. This website must be verified by me first, before placed on any articles of this wikia.

The reason that it must be verified by me, is due to the possibility of a virus being on that site and infecting your computer, the possibility of the website being a complete scam to steal your account information, or the website being completely false and providing zero helpful content. I, your Admin, intends to provide only valid sources for you to view the episodes by either a Free Host or a Paid Host.

On this note, I will seek out more hosts and options for you to view the first 7 episodes that you may have missed or desire to watch again. Deathdealers747 (talk) 00:45, July 30, 2013 (UTC)

Reminder: Templates; July 15th, 2013

Just wanted to remind people to view the templates before actually attempting to add information to the page via template. For example, if the command line is "seen = x" then typing "appearances = x" will result in no information being displayed. I do not currently know an easier way to find a template on this wikia, but I do know that if you go up to the search bar, find "defiance.wikia.com/wiki/XXX:XXX" delete the X's information and replace it with: "Template:" and whichever template that you are searching for. For example, to view Template:ActorInfobox, replace that information in the url to achieve: http://defiance.wikia.com/wiki/Template:ActorInfobox. Deathdealers747 (talk) 12:48, July 15, 2013 (UTC)

Reminder: Season 2; July 9th, 2013

I (Admin of this wiki) am fully aware of the Season 2 status of Defiance, and will not create a Season 2 episode set of pages until the names of Season 2 episodes have been released. I would appreciate it if no one took this burden on their behalf without consenting or requesting permission from the Admin of this wiki (me). Thank you, and have a wonderful Season break!

Happy Independence Day for those in the U.S.A.!

I just wanted to make a broadcast to everybody letting them know who the current Admin and Bureaucrat of this wiki is User:Deathdealers747(me). User:Gaarmyvet has gone inactive on this wiki and will mainly be here for diplomatic purposes only.

In other news, remember, do not rename, move, or majorly alter a page without seeking permission from the local Admin or future Admins at this wiki. If you have any problems, feel free to ask the community at the Community Portal Talk Page, or directly post it on the page's talk page, or ask an Admin of this wiki.

Two templates are available to advertise users' interests. Placing {{User-Gamer}} on your user page will add your username to Category:Gamers; placing {{User-Viewer}} on your user page will add your username to Category:Viewers. Please see my page for an example.
