(Sigh) For the last Time. What Jack Horner said about the Ankylosaurus from Terra Nova Is True. "It's Spikes are little bit different. It's Head Shape Is a tiny little bit Different." Believe me because I saw the Behind the Scenes called "Cretaceous Life: The Dinosaurs of Terra Nova." Plus, I have the DVD. Now I'm going to think of Something about the Empirosaur. Not now But later. There Better not be any disappearing of a good editing.
You must post the source for information such as that, as I said when I undid the edit. If you have the source, just list it with the edit. And please do not make threats, as you last sentence is implying. Poor or incorrect edits will be removed. Thanks.
What is the Problem? Look When I look at them Acceraptors AKA Slashers They do look like a cross between some actual Raptorial Dinosaurs & some actual Tyrannosaur Dinosaurs. Plus, The crest on they're heads are similar to that of Oviraptor type Dinosaurs Including a flightless Bird alive today the cassowary. If the fan looks closely & carefully.
For the most part, this wiki is 99% complete. There is so much work that went into this, that what remains is small. Don't underestimate how much time we spent working on this wiki. So, yes, technically it is not 100% complete. And yes, editing has nothing to do with how long ago a show ended....if something is missing, it is missing. BastionMonk knows what is missing, and has the info (series on DVD, etc.), to fill in the holes, as I'm sure some other folks (maybe you included) do as well :)
This wiki is essentially complete, and has been for a long time. Bureaucrat status doesn't really get you anything new that is needed now. What did you want to do with that? You do have admin rights, which should be plenty, unless you have some other good reason....?
I do not know what you mean with "complete", but is irrelevant. A healthy wiki needs people who have access to all the buttons on the wiki. True, there is a huge overlap between admin and bureaucrat. However, Wikia would not have invented an entire group if its abilities were redundant.
The existing Bureaucrats on this wiki are, like yourself, inactive for a long time and have chosen not to fulfill this role. Therefore, I believe this wiki needs a Bureaucrat who is still involved in the writing of the wiki. And I think I fit that description.
I have been a Bureaucrat on the Jurassic Wiki since 2010, so I know how to handle and share power; should that happen to be of concern for you.
I'm saying this Wiki doesn't need more additions since it is complete, since the show ended long ago, and not much goes on here (or at least needs to), except for removing vandalism. Don't worry, I still get emails about edited pages, and check those edits all the time. Just because I'm not writing anything new (since it doesn't need it), doesn't mean I'm not watching. And being a Bureaucrat vs an Admin gets you virtually nothing worthwhile that is needed to maintain a wiki. That being said, you have done a good job, and your request is granted.
On the contrary, I haven't lost any interest in the show (hence I'm still here as well). However, you seem to have more interest than me in it, which is great! I have seen your additions, which are fine, but I also see the remaining stubs at this point, and there's not really much to be added to them from my perspective (and I'm talking about now, not before you became active) (could be 1 or 2 stubs that really need something, and at this point, I don't remember enough to add it myself). Adding to them doesn't really add much value. However, that is just my personal opinion. Feel free to keep adding material (do you have the series on disc?). Good luck :)
Ofcourse I have the DVD. If every 9 million people who watched the series would buy the DVD, it would give a clear message to FOX that money can still be made from this series. I also own the soundtrack CD, and the Pilgrimage badges and shoulder bag that were handed out at ComicCon.
I typically don't buy TV series discs. I would never watch most of them again. Few exceptions that I did buy were Lost and Breaking Bad. And even those two that I did buy....I still have never watched them again yet.

Sounds very familiar.
Therefore, I only keep box sets of franchise I really LIKE. Box sets usually contain all kinds of extra information and collectables. When I am a really great fan of a franchise, I want to see/possess those extra's.
No need to remove admins. Not like we have a limit. If people are trusted, they stay trusted unless they do something terribly wrong. It's not like being an admin is a reward. It just means you are trusted to help with certain things, like blocking people, locking pages, etc...

I am not new to wiki-life. I have granted admin and bureaucrat rights to many people.

Well, there we differ in opinion. If someone hasn't been active for years, he/she loses all connection with what goes on in the community and the topic itself. At that point, someone becomes inadequate to be an admin on a wiki. On the Jurassic Wiki, I took away the admin rights of users that were not active for years. And guess what, they never noticed.
If ex-admins have a problem with their rights being taken, let them speak out, and I am more then willing to return the rights.
If they do not speak out, it is a telltale sign that they do not care about this wiki anymore. And I return the favor.
The point is there is no reason to take it away in the first place. A person that is an admin should know if they have adequate knowledge to make the edit in the first place. They should be trustworthy enough to know this themselves, otherwise they wouldn't have been made an admin. If not, then they shouldn't have been made an admin. Any person who doesn't have connection to the topic shouldn't be editing on it, regardless if they are an admin or not. Being an admin is irrelevant to that issue. The admin position allows people to help with blocking, locking, etc. That said, inactive admins don't need to be included in discussions related to normal day to day operations of the wiki. But they should still be trusted. As for Jim, I know he won't care. I talked to him previously about it, and told him I was leaving him there as an admin, even though he said he was going inactive. I know Jim would not edit material that he knew nothing about.
Regardless, I'm glad you have such enthusiasm and passion for the topic of this wiki, and have the information and willingness to improve it. I'm sure the wiki will improve over time with your guidance. Thank you for wanting to continue what we started! :)
Hi I noticed that in Talk of Alvarez there were some doubts if he could be still alive. Despite now we know that he is dead, I wonder how he should survive. You though that Drake carried him away? I'm just curious. I know you are unactive but Please answer me. I will appreciated. Thanks
Now that I have got your attention. What happened to this wiki's facebook page. The original fb page, not the new one for which I have given up hope I'll attract new followers.
Why did this wiki stop updating its Twitter account in March 2012, when this shows corpse was barely cold? Why is it that no-one of the original admin team could be bothered to remember the login information?
Well, before when I responded last year, it appears as though I wasn't clear, as I said "I do not," but never said that I never had the information. I was clarifying.
As for the main page, I wasn't the one who edited that, so I never look(ed) at it. I only went/go right to the articles. Who notices Facebook icons anymore anyway. They're everywhere nowadays and never really think about them. You do notice that link you posted bring up a page with a Facebook icon that links to the Avatar wiki? :)
There weren't many editors here to begin with. The show didn't attract a lot of people that wanted to edit the wiki. So when the show was canceled, there weren't many people to stop editing anyway. Once it was over, I think people thought there wasn't really much left to add, since no new content was coming from Fox, so they gradually went on to other things.
Greetings! I am sorry to bother you with this, but would you please be kind enough to take a look at this thread and express your opinion? I would truly appreciate it. Thank you very much for any help you can provide!
