Bureaucrat Admin
  • I am Male (he/him)

Hi there! I'm Ironwestie. I've been a Wikia (FANDOM) contributor since 2012, and I've been an administrator on a few wikis, including this one!

I often run a bot called User:Joke-Explainer 7000 to perform tedious edits. Please let me know if you need me to perform a repetitive edit.

If you have any questions, especially about our rip pages, please leave a message on my message wall. If you have an urgent matter that you need an admin's assistance immediately (e.g. vandalism or personal information leak), contact the VSTF and/or contact FANDOM.

Feel free to reach out if you'd like to chat! I'm always up for an interesting conversation. :)

Pages Edit

TODO Edit

Wiki growth Edit

  • Consider some ways to encourage veteran editors and to welcome new people and lower the barrier for entry
    • Current editing system can be difficult to get used to, and a lot of people need practice or guidance
    • Want to give incentives for editors to contribute -- more social engagement
    • Appointing new content mods and / or admins is a step in the right direction -- with the size of the wiki as big as it is (we're the #7 Music wiki on FANDOM's WAM leaderboard and the #483rd wiki overall), the admin team should've been larger and more involved from the get go
      • What does an adminstrator / content moderator do? What are their responsibilities, abilities and expectations?
      • Will draft something in the next week
    • Add a "Did you know?" section: Did you know....
    • Revamp MoS and Rules to be easy to follow and pursue (reliance on template generators, encouraging practice)
    • "How can I (a new user, or any user) help?" (Announcement?)
    • "What is SiIvaGunner?"
  • Add userboxes to help contributors and forum chatters to show off their interests
Possible ideas

  • "This user likes _[event]_."
  • "This user's favorite meme is _[meme]_" (with specific lines related to the meme?)
  • "This user's favorite character is _[character]_"
  • "This user's favorite joke is _[rip joke]_"
  • "This user uses the SiIvaGunner [Discord/Reddit]"
  • "This user has contributed a rip to SiIvaGunner."
  • "This user voted for _[King for a Day character]_ in KFaD"
  • "This user voted for _[King for Another Day character]_ in KFAD"


Editing Edit

  • Overhaul the help pages for new readers and editors
    • Clean up Project:Manual of Style:
      • Playlist categories (add script code to copy from Wikipedia?)
        • Playlist category lists are formatted like so:
*<base name>
**<mix>
**<mix>

EXAMPLE for a playlist page for "game"
Foo (bar) - game
Foo - game
Foo (foo) - game

becomes...

*Foo
**bar
**foo
        • Spell out exactly how ordering of the playlists is supposed to go (we haven't officially decided it yet, however this is a good algorithm):
for each playlist item, starting from the top of the playlist until the end...
   if the item's base name is found in the ordered list
      sort the item into the base name's sublist using its mix (alphabetically)
   else make a new sublist with that base name
(note for sorting sublists: if a "non-mix" rip does not exist, then still add the non-mix entry, but do not add a link)
      • CCC rips: summary, tracklist, transcript, trivia
  • Sort out maintenance cats and make notice templates for them(?)

Reading / Content Edit

  • Verify that no rip pages link to List of channel events directly, and instead link to other pages. -- IN PROGRESS
    • Need to have pages link to their event pages using AWB (see my Sandbox
    • Need to migrate redirects
  • Edit the song-based memes' infobox to include key, BPM, and perhaps melody (with audio sample and notesheet?)

Portals Edit

The wiki is becoming quite large. We have over 12 thousand pages, and it doesn't look like the growth will be stopping any time soon. Portals would be a good way to separate content about SiIvaGunner in a more digestible way.

  • Portal for Ripping (and Music theory), Rips, KFAD, Lore (CCC)
    • Ripping:
      • Resources for ripping
      • Mashups
      • Melody swaps / melody changes / melody additions
      • Music theory
        • Distinguishing key, adjusting BPM
    • Rips
      • What is a rip?
      • Types of rips
      • Notable rips
      • Your favorite rips!
    • KFAD
      • Revamp navs
    • Lore

Maintenance Edit

Bot actions Edit

Bot actions are semi-automated actions performed by User:Joke-Explainer 7000, such as renaming pages and correcting links. Please message me via my Message Wall to request a bot action.

  • Fix links for renamed rips from Special:Log/move - lowest priority; takes a lot of time
  • Verify all pages link to the events they are a part of
