  • Hey Wolf, I'm not sure if you got my message on thr Choices wiki but there's an idea that I've brought up, just wanted you to know. Please look at it as soon as possible, thanks.

  • Hey Wolf! Apologies for following you to the Suits Wikia. I was trying to find a way to contact you on the Choices Wikia, but couldn't find any because Fearless Diva blocked me there without giving me a chance to message you. Here's to hoping you receive this message!

    Why I'm Messaging You

    So in a nutshell, I feel I've been wrongfully banned from posting in the Choices Wikia, despite abiding by every single Discussion Guideline . As a huge fan of Choices, this is disappointing. However, I also believe the administrator who banned me has also done so out of his/her prejudice against those who disagree with him/her on certain sensitive topics, thereby completely disregarding the Discussion Guidelines. If possible, I would like to file a complaint against him/her.

    Ban Details

    Your user name or IP address has been blocked. The block was made by 96.60.238.177.

    • Reason given: Intimidating behaviour/harassment: transphobic comments
    • Start of block: 03:50, November 2, 2017
    • Expiry of block: 03:50, November 2, 2018
    • Intended blockee:
    • Block ID: #2
    • Current IP address: 96.60.238.177


    How It Started

    As you may know, Pixelberry released their new book with Andy , a transgender who was born female but identifies themself as female. I, personally, do not agree with transgenderism, so I commented this on Andy's Wikia page. Note that while I do not believe a person who is born as a woman can call themselves a man or vice versa, I in no way indicated that I hate such people, or would do anything to harm them. In my post, I clearly stated that I do not hate the character, but do not agree with her that she is a male, choosing instead to view her as a female. 

    Almost immediately, I received a reply from Fearless Diva on the post, which can also be seen in this screenshot . He/she starts off their reply with a personal attack on me, labeling me as "transphobic" despite nothing in my post to suggest that. In addition, he/she then proceeded to post a warning on my visitor wall, stating that "Wikia/Fandom is a safe place to all." My reply was to ask why s/he was not making it safe for me (surely I am included in a "safe place to all")?

    What Followed

    The main issue with my ban is that I got a warning first, but then got a ban despite not having posted after having gotten the warning. Instead of being linked to any community guidelines, or specific injunctions of how I was breaking the rule, Fearless Diva proceeded to break several rules him/herself; to my knowledge, I steered clear of anything that would have violated the Discussion Guidelines. Our entire conversation is on my visitor wall to read, but I have screenshots too (1 2 3 ), in case they happen to be deleted.

    In my first reply to Fearless Diva's private message, I corrected him/her on the definition of "transphobic." According to Merriam-Webster, transphobia is "irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against transgender," none of which I displayed in my post about Andy. However,the ban that Fearless Diva gave me was allegedly for "transphobic comments," despite me displaying none of the behavior listed in the Merriam-Webster defintion of the word.

    When I suggested that we should just "agree to disagree," s/he stated that that was an impossibility on this Wikia. However, such a statement was nowhere to be found in the Discussion Guidelines, which I duly pointed out to him/her. I also mentioned how the rules stated that everyone must "be open-minded about differing opinions." Unfortunately, I never received a reply from him/her, and was banned about 15 minutes after my reply.

    Admin Abuse?

    1. Fearless Diva displayed no respect for my opinion. As I have stated before, I respect everyone's opinions, even if I disagree with them. However, Fearless Diva demonstrated through the ban that I was not welcome to express my opinion on a fictional character's gender. In return, I sent him/her a copy of the Discussion Guidelines , where it is clearly (and sensibly) states to "be open-minded about differing opinions."

    2. Fearless Diva banned me immediately after the warning, despite me not posting anything. What was the point of the warning if I was banned for my first "offence?" I understand that topics such as transgenderism are not easy ones, yet if they are not discussed, the community will become rapidly enclosed in a bubble where only certain opinions are permitted and others are completely ostracized. This is the exact opposite of "diversity" and "inclusion." 

    3. Fearless Diva was not civil. In his/her very first reply to me, I was incorrectly accused me of transphobia. When I offered the correct definition of the slur from an accreddited dictionary, I did not receive any acknowledgment of the error. Instead, I was banned for the very same reason, despite Merriam-Webster proving him/her wrong!

    4. Fearless Diva was NOT helpful to me as a new user. While I tried to keep the discussion respectful and polite, as seen in my screenshots and on my visitor wall, Fearless Diva, by contrast, displayed no willingness to provide a copy of the rules or explain why I was banned. My latest question to him/her is still unanswered.

    Conclusion

    Whew, that was a lot to write. In conclusion, I would definitely love to see this ban lifted, as I have greatly enjoyed interacting with other Choices fans through the comments sections on various pages. However, I would also like to request that action be taken against Fearless Diva, who has seemingly abused their powers to ban me, simply for seeing the world and issues such as transsexuality in a different way than they do. An example of this situation, albeit an extreme one, would be if a Hindu was refused entry to a restaurant unless he started eating beef!

    Thank you for your time, and sorry again for the long post. If there is anything else you would like me to provide, I would be glad to.

    • You have every right as a human being to consider my opinion as incorrect. The beauty of mankind's free will is that we have the right to believe in and express our opinions through free speech, a privilege here in America. As this is the Internet, I understand circumstances are different. Although I disagree with your censoring of my opinion, this is a privately owned website, where those who pay for it can choose what they want displayed on it.

      Like I told Wolf, no hard feelings, Fearless Diva! Ultimately, we must have an authority where our beliefs come from - much as you reject what I have left you to think about, I hope that you might some day allow God to be that ultimate authority in your lives. I will continue to pray for you guys. I've done my best to be polite and respectful of your opinion; only God can do the rest.

      ​Take care, and don't hesitate to message me on another Wikia if you have any questions.

    • Not that it concerns you Dudey, but I am religious... Roman Catholic born and raised. I just don't let  an archaic mindset dominate my life. It is possible to believe in a god and still be a descent human being. It doesn't have to be one or the other. But likewise, I wish you the best and  hope you grow as an individual.

  • I promoted you to administrator - congratulations :)

    Few things. One - when creating new pages (ex. new episode pages), make sure to protect the page. Make sure the edit option is on the second option and the move (page renaming rights) are set to the third option (admins & content mods only).

    Second - I've made it to episode 50, but I may not be able to finish the rest. If you could help with epiodes 52-present with the pages, that would be appreciated. Especially making sure that there is a quote on the episode page. Preferably with the title of the episode (ex. In the "Play the Man" episode, the quote has the words "play the man" featured). If not, then find the most relevant one.

    Three - recurring characters. Recurring characters are those who have made 3 appearance at least. Which means after their 3rd appearance, they get bumped from guest to recurring. I've only made two exceptions for this (as far I can remember) - Harold and Simon.

    Simon was only in 4 episodes, so his 4th episode was listed as a guest since it was minor anyways. For Harold, his first 4 appearances were very minor so I had them listed as guest. On his 5th appearance, when it was more prominent, I had him bumped to recurring.

    Feel free to ask any questions :]

      Love the subject line for the message :D

      I will try my best to follow the things you mentioned :)

      By the way, I don't like small sized images here, so if I come across them, they end up getting deleted.

  • Hey, there! I see you've been adding promotional images for the episodes this season.

    Whenever you have time, could you help me in updating the promotional episodes of already aired episodes? Most of them are of a smaller, low-res quality and not all of the promotional images released for the episodes have been uploaded here on the wikia.

    You can find the official images in their full quality here: http://www.usanetwork.com/suits/photos

    Thanks a lot!

    • Please stop deleting older images and then reuploading the same image as a different file name. Just replace the version of the older image.

  • Might I recommend using Source Mode to edit as opposed to Visual Editor?

    • Nothing recent; I was going through page revisions and edits from early 2017. It's just the "< span" and the "nowikis" and the "&nbsp" hat Visual Mode leaves that makes me prefer Source Mode.

    • A reminder to stick to Source Mode for all edits. Your edits on the "Episodes" article were done via Visual.

  • Er - just out of curiousity .. if you ever have replaced an existing image with another, did you delete the previous version in the image file history?

    Or did you name the Mike Ross image you uploaded today (File:S02E01P005 - Mike.jpg)

  • If you don't mind, whenever you're free, could you help me change all of the "it first broadcasted on" to "it aired on" and the starring/cast section of pages.

    Ex. from "Production/Credits/Gabriel Macht - Harvey Specter" to the format used for the last 2 years or so "e.g. Gabriel Macht as Harvey Specter"

    Especially on the earlier pages ~

    thanks;

  • The correct usage should be "it will air / it aired on", not "it was broadcast on".

    There are a lot of old pages that use broadcast that I fix when I see them, but most of the pages here use "air".

  • Might I suggest switching from Visual Editor to Source Mode?

    • I switch between the two actually. I find some things easier in each.

      Hoever, I'll try restricting myself to Source Mode
