About the deletion and return of Casualty Wiki and Holby Wiki
Hello! You don't know me, and I don't know you so let me introduce myself. I'm Monollama, also known as Bee. You must be super duper confused right now along with the other editors! I'll try to clear some stuff up.
I don't know exactly what went down, but there was apparently there was accusations of plagiarism from some other site, of which I can or cannot confirm, but this is what resulted in two of the other admins deciding to mass delete both wikis and "close it down".
Now this is an issue for many reasons: 1. You can't just decide to "close down a wiki", FANDOM would need to be contacted over it, and they would decide to delete a wiki or not. For something like Holby or Casualty, it would of not been deleted and just put up for adoption if there were no active admins.
2. You can't just DELETE everything, that is bad faith editing, and as such, vandalism. It's one thing to try and get rid of plagiarism, but another to delete years worth of community-based contributions.
3. Should there of been plagiarism, pages should of been marked as such so it could be re-written or removed, not deleted.
Because of these reason, and actual TOS rule breaking, I reported this to VSTF, which is like a FANDOM vandalism/spam team. And they agreed, and that's why the wikis are back!
I don't know these shows, these wikis, any of the editors or the admins, but I know how much wikis can mean to people, and how much work people put into them, and just to see them flat out deleted? I wouldn't stand for it. So best of luck with your wikis! o/ Monollama (talk) 13:57, September 3, 2017 (UTC)
