  • I have suspended your administrative powers, pending a discussion.

    • 1. "First, I am right that you (I can't believe I am typing this) are out of control. Yes, I wrote it. Your hypocrocy is amazing. You claim that I need to warn people before I block them, but you just removed my powers without even asking me why I (accidentally) blocked you." - the reason I removed your powers is because I assumed you had gone rogue and were out of control. I had given you two warnings in regards to two blocks and you were upset that I had unblocked ther person you blocked. In fact, that was the second time you were upset that I blocked someone.

      2. When I saw that you blocked me, I knew the situation was serious, because I didn't know that the block was an accident.

      3. When you blocked me after everything that has happened in the past few months, I needed to suspend your powers.

      4. In our "checklist" discussion, when I realized that I could not edit posts and said so, you said "I didn't do anything. Try refreshing. If that doesn't work, then try "F5"."

      Let me emphasize something here. "I didn't do anything." Why would I think you did something if I was having an issue on my computer? Why would I assume you did something. When I realized that you blocked me, I thought "I didn't do anything" was some sort of denial that you blocked me, perhaps regretting the decision. I may never know if you really intended on blocking me or if it was just an accident. I wasn't sure, so I reinstated your powers.

      5. I would be willing to change the policy to 2 warnings. That means a person must make the same violation 3 times before being blocked. I hope we can compromise on that.

      6. We need to end this. This has been going on too long and we cannot have such controversy in the wiki. I don't understand what exactly you have a problem with, but I have given you so many chances:

      • 1st chance: When JCM suspended you in January, several people called for your permanent demotion. I was hesitant, and called for a suspension instead.
      • 2nd chance: There were 7 supports and 1 oppose to your 3-month suspension. I was one of the supporters. Instead, I reinstated your powers and did not go through with the three month suspension.
      • 3rd chance: In early February, some users were getting tired of your behaviors/actions. I got an e-mail calling for your demotion. Instead of acting on a demotion request, I decided to continue trying to reason with you.
      • 4th chance: In early April, things got worse with your blocking actions. People were afraid of being blocked by you. I got yet another lengthy e-mail explaining why you should be demoted. Instead, I opted to create an official blocking policy to establish rules in regards to blocking.
      • 5th chance: Despite the passing of the blocking policy, you continued to block people without warning. When you blocked me, I thought you went rogue, and so I suspended your powers, only to restore them, even though I am still not sure if you blocked my on purpose or by accident.

      5 chances. I have given you 5 chances.

      7. We need to resolve this. This must end. Here is my idea. I want you to follow the policies the community has agreed upon, and yes, that includes the blocking policy. I also want you to make a list of grievences. Make it as a subpage of your user page or something, and do the following three things:

      • 1. Make a list of things for which you have issues
      • 2. Give a reason for why you are concerned with each of those issues
      • 3. Give your idea of a solution to that issue.

      Also, do not be unreasonable. I am sure you want this to end just as much as me and everyone else. So, make a page, list all your complaints, all your concerns, anything you think should be changed/added in regards to policies, and any questions you have in regards to anything relating to any issue.

      Remember, we are a community and we welcome new people. We don't want to scare them away. We want this to be a friendly, productive place. The policies are in place to create stability. We cannot have people making their own rules. You have to understand that sometimes people will not agree with you.

    • 8. "You need to realize that you are just one part of this wiki, not the leader."

      Here's another thing. Yes, I am part of the wiki. I am one of the leaders. There are four bureaucrats. I will tell you that as far as a I know, 4 administrators have expressed concerns with your actions, and 2 of them have corresponded with me privately.

      They can very well be involved in this conversation and directly speak to you, as I have been. However, they have appeared to entrust me with the situation. As a bureaucrat, I have a responsibility to see that things run smoothly around here, and that is what I intend on doing. And yes, that includes making sure new people are welcome and not scared away.

  • I noticed that you blocked Florenceischocolate for inserting opinions in articles, without giving any warnings. I noticed that AW10 warned this user here back in January for the same offense. However, instead of giving them a warning, you blocked them for two hours. This would have only been their second warning for that offense, and user's contributions have a gap of over a month between edits.

    Refer to these blocking policies (see here: SpongeBob SquarePants:Policy#V. Blocking policy)

    C1 - "Any user who violates any rule will be given (a) warning(s) on their message wall before they are blocked."

    C2 - "Administrators that find a user violating any of the policies must revert any changes and must politely notify the user of their wrongdoing."

    B2 - "Administrators must follow the established blocking policy. Any exceptions require a community discussion."

    B3 - "Any administrator who fails to follow the blocking procedures after three (3) warnings from a bureaucrat will be suspended for seven (7) days, pending discussion on the administrator's user rights."

    Like I said earlier, it's better to communicate with people than to just block them. By communicating with users, they can either learn and move on and make better edits, or if they defend their wrong edits, you can tell them why they are wrong. If they revert the page, they are breaking a rule. If they harass you, that is another breaking of the rules. It will all depend on how they respond to your warning. It's better to give them a chance than scare them off.

    Per B3 of the blocking policy, consider this your second warning. Of course if you have further issues with the blocking of Florenceischocolate and you could request a community discussion regarding the specific block per B2.

    I am serious about these blocking policies. I don't want to give warnings to administrators who are deliberately breaking the rules. You are very well aware of the blocking policy.

    Again, as I have said over and over, I do not want unnecessary blocks scare off users who have yet to learn how the wiki works.

    • Okay, now I know these people are just blindly agreeing to these proposals. You should not need to warn them more than once. Warning do not have a statute of limitations.

      Also, he deserved that block. He has been here long enough to know better. He wrote "People, I think we learned a lesson in this episode: Don't be a but hurt. "

      You don't get to unblock who ever you want. I really think you should talk to the admin who blocked before unblocking a user, especially when you say that the user was "unfairly blocked".

  • I just wanted to tell you that Don the Whale appears in Christmas Who? with a cameo but I can't add episodes he appeared in on his more page but I did put his appearance on the episode page.

  • I don't know if you knew the blocking policy was official when you blocked HippoHead, as you had not yet responded to my notification that the blocking policies were official now. However, you blocked Renee kelly AFTER you acknowledged my message that the blocking policy was official. You need to COMMUNICATE with users, especially since both appear to be new users. You didn't even ask either of them to explain their edits and tell them that they cannot make edits like they did. You just simply blocked them. The policies are:

    Blocking policies:

    C1 - "Any user who violates any rule will be given (a) warning(s) on their message wall before they are blocked."

    C2 - "Administrators that find a user violating any of the policies must revert any changes and must politely notify the user of their wrongdoing."

    B2 - "Administrators must follow the established blocking policy. Any exceptions require a community discussion."

    B3 - "Any administrator who fails to follow the blocking procedures after three (3) warnings from a bureaucrat will be suspended for seven (7) days, pending discussion on the administrator's user rights."

    That's one warning. It's better to communicate with people than to just block them. By communicating with users, they can either learn and move on and make better edits, or if they defend their wrong edits, you can tell them why they are wrong. If they revert the page, they are breaking a rule. If they harass you, that is another breaking of the rules. It will all depend on how they respond to your warning. It's better to give them a chance than scare them off.

    Per B3 of the blocking policy, consider this your first warning. Of course if you have further issues with the blocking of Renee kelly and you could request a community discussion regarding the specific block per B2.

    • "But, the first time I get a response that is negative/unreasonable, I will stop messaging people."

      That would be an awful policy. All users are different. Just because one person is negative or unreasonable doesn't mean the next person who is warned will be. You cannot punish someone with no warning because someone was negative after they were given a warning.

    • okay, then I will not warn the users that give me bad (being the type that is negative, not something that I don't like) responses.

  • Where can I download spongebob most recent episodes?

      Loading editor
    • iTunes is the only legal downloding site that I know of.

      You can also watch them on Hulu Plus, however I do not know if Kenny the Cat is up yet.

      If you were actually wondering where you can upload videos on this site, you can either go to the contribute button on the upper right of the screen, click on it and go down until you see add a video or you can go the videos tab under "On this wiki" and there will be a button on the upper left of the screen.
