Instruction Guide to Parrotbeak
As admin, I mostly concern myself with keeping the wiki up to date, clean, and user-friendly. You won't see me engage with the community often and chances are that if I do, that is to intervene rather than participate. I am strict, but not unreasonable, so if you disagree with my decisions, feel free to speak up.
Furthermore, you can:
- Ask me for any information regarding the wiki's content (though I'd rather you'd read the articles first).
- Ask me for help with any technical issues (I might have to redirect you to Community Central in some cases though).
- Ask me for the reasons behind some of the rules on the Monster High Wiki.
- Ask me about the reasons behind a ban (use your user page, please) and for it to be removed in case of a first-time, small reason.
- Ask me to update or fix something.
Keep in mind there's only 24 hours in a day and I've got things to do in real-life too. I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can, but that doesn't mean I get back to you soon. (You can already significantly make things easier for me by not forgetting to sign your post.) If I don't at all, message me again. Between the Ever After High Wiki and the Monster High Wiki, I tend to be preoccupied.
ADDENDUM: Alright, this should go without saying, but I find people to ignore this time and time again. I edit wikis for fun. I love collecting and arranging information and I get really happy when I see that my work has been useful to someone. However, nothing that is fun is fun when it is an obligation. I am not a program or a machine and I don't get paid for my work here. There's only so much time and energy I can invest and I want to invest that as I choose. So, no, I won't 'get to know you' before I tell you to stop doing something that harms the wiki, and no, I won't edit something because you passive-aggressively demand it of me.
Stuff to remember
In 2011, Mattel launched a contest on the Portugese Monster High website to design a doll. People who entered had to design a doll, give him/her a biography and describe them accurately. People who entered complained that it was difficult to enter on the website. Thousands of enteries came from around the globe. It was monthes after the competion, until the results were announced. It was discreetly announced on the internet(not even on the offical monster high website!). The winner was a girl called Barbara Silva, who goes on the web under the name of "Catia Morias". The doll is a werecat who has a condition called heterochromia(Two different coloured eyes). Mattel seemed to have lost interest in the competion hence the long wait for the results, the discreet announcent of results and they used other monster's items(e.g Basic Wave One, Clawdeen's boots). There were several rumours surrounding Catia Morias(The doll) including she was a custom or an exclusive doll for Mexico. In short, she is an exclusive doll given to Barbara Silva.
