Forums: Index > Dobbstalk > Admin Removal

I would like to see the activity of who was admin before the current admin (Hilde/Miley) took over, who removed them, and when. Please show me how to access this information, as I know Wikia logs all of these sorts of changes. Anyone who knows how to do this is welcome to answer! Thanks!

For a user's activities, go to their user page and click on Contributions. General Public said he removed himself as admin, and just did it again because of the infighting. I don't know how to check that. But that's what people coming here and insisting their get their own way over and over again and ignoring how things work on Wikia has gotten them.

Your question was answered by Wikia Staff here. If you want verification they're Wikia Staff, it's in the wikia button by their name. Only Staff can have that. :) Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 22:40, October 6, 2015 (UTC)
On my message wall, General Public posted:
  • To answer your question, I removed myself. I left the site a couple years ago, then when I saw it was active again, decided to start over with my SubGenius name, so removed my own adminship.
That would seem to contradict the decision by staff to remove The Overmind's adminship for inactivity. However, it is not necessarily a contradiction. The Overmind could still have requested it from staff for inactivity. Pope Hilde (talk) 15:35, October 9, 2015 (UTC)
Actually, it just re-enforces that the poster is not actually The Overmind, as their statements are contradicted by publicly-available logs. Jzp-wikia (talk) 13:37, October 11, 2015 (UTC)
That is possible. General Public was extremely cooperative in removing his own adminship without being asked, so whether or not General Public = The Overmind or not, he/she may well become a productive user here. Pope Hilde (talk) 13:59, October 11, 2015 (UTC)
The wikia account The Overmind is the SubGenius known as General Public and who started this site. The recent poster isn't. Jzp-wikia (talk) 17:10, October 11, 2015 (UTC)

I am the person who created this wiki and wrote most of its content. I am NOT the same person as the Wikia account "General Public", who was falsely impersonating me. I only have ONE username, namely "The Overmind", although my SubGenius name is "General Public". It seems a number of people here are falsely impersonating other people. I was inactive for awhile because it seemed like the site was doing fairly well every time I looked at it (usually without bothering to login) and didn't need anything done. It seems the Wikia staff have removed my adminship due to inactivity and due to a liar who falsely impersonated me and claimed that I didn't want to be admin anymore. I DO want to be admin, thank you very much, I am quite upset about having my adminship revoked, and I would like it back A.S.A.P., thank you very much. And I must also say that the way not only my identity but the identity of several other SubGenius reverends including Rev. Ivan Stang have all been falsely used by people at this wiki, that all violates Wikia policy. When I was an admin, after a few months I also made Jzp-wikia an admin too but apparently he has likewise been stripped of his power despite the fact that he has been doing a good job and trying to keep vandalism under control. So I believe that both my adminship being stripped away and Jzp-wikia's being stripped away were done wrongfully, in violation of Wikia policy, based on false pretenses. I must ask that my adminship and Jzp-wikia's adminship both be restored immediately by the current admins please, if the current admins wish to show that they are acting in good faith and are not in cahoots with the people who falsely impersonated my identity, Rev. Stang's identity, and other people's identities. To deny me, the founder of this wiki who wrote most of its content and tried to safeguard it from vandalism by putting it under the watchful eye of Jzp-wikia, the admin powers I had ever since creating this wiki, on the basis of some fake sockpuppet pretending to be me and claiming I didn't want to be admin anymore, is absolutely preposterous and I will not stand for such a thing. Sockpuppets who claim to be other Wikia users being used in a scheme to take away someone's admin powers is something that is VERY much against the rules of, rules that I followed and upheld when I was admin, and it bodes badly for this site if it turns out the new admins were the ones behind the sockpuppets and flagrantly violating the rules of Wikia just so they could take over this wiki from its original founder. --The Overmind (talk) 00:12, October 14, 2015 (UTC)

Since you posted this, you've apparently had a chance to see what happened here. Wikia staff removed your adminship for two years of inactivity. The impersonators including User:General Public started here after that happened, so had nothing to do with it. There's a proposal to give you adminship in Forum:Dobbstalk. I'm glad you're back.

Also to clarify, according to user logs, the very first edit here of User:Ivan Stang was on his/her user page and started with "DISCLAIMER: I am NOT the IVAN STANG who is no longer CEO of the CHURCH OF THE SUBGENIUS....", so the editor is not an impersonator by Wikia policy.
