Hello operative, if there's anything I can help with please feel free to leave me a message in a new section.

Movie footer Edit

Hi, Xensyria!

A user recently nominated The Matrix for inclusion in our movie footer program. Would you be interested?

Best regards,

Raylan13@fandom (talk) 16:26, September 9, 2016 (UTC)

Sounds like a good idea to me Raylan13. I'll copy in the other admins, and top and recent editors to see if there's a consensus: what do you reckon Sclera1, Nisheeth, Eycestar, Морфеус, Darth Sauron, Dude984, Spencerian, FaNbOy1988, Peazeract, Xalbador Gliese 581C, Dumbassman, Bullet Francisco, AndrewBatman82, Jeyo, DreamPrincess2591, Yorpie, Warmachine375, Cascades1, Zombiejiger, Stealthghost, Itstheanomaly, Omnihallows? --xensyriaT 19:33, September 9, 2016 (UTC)
    • Matrix wiki is one of the most well documented and up to mark wikis that I've ever seen and it's inclusion in the movie footer, would be a honor for the footer itself. Thanks Rylan. Ghost pixel 1 by zombiepattyfag-d9c9wvwAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 22:07, September 9, 2016 (UTC)
I don't see any comments in the negative, so I'll go ahead and include The Matrix. If there's any issue, though, please let me know! Raylan13@fandom (talk) 18:50, October 7, 2016 (UTC)

New Operator Edit

Hey Xensyria, I always coveted to talk with one of you guys, let me introduce myself, I am Xalbador, a bureaucrat on about 5 well known wikis i.e. Rickipedia, Night of the Demons, Rockstar Games GTA Vice City, Exorcist and the Sandlot Wiki. I've recently retired from GTA Myths Wiki, where I was considered a legend, taking the wiki to new heights of popularity but beside all these wikis, I've always yearned for being a co-bureaucrat with you guys, as you can see I've reached a respectable amount of edits that is over 1000 now and I'm continuously striving to accumulate more edits and pages to the wiki, I would love to share the privilege of being a b'crat on the wiki with a tremendous history of staff. Along with making a considerable amount of pages, I've also cleaned up the recent vandalism a couple of days ago. Other than that, my passion for the Matrix universe is over the top as I'm patrolling on the wiki of what is like 24/7. 

Thanks and looking forward to your response. Ghost pixel 1 by zombiepattyfag-d9c9wvwAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 22:04, September 9, 2016 (UTC)

  • Thanks for huge number of edits you've done in the week you've been editing! Yep, we can be quite sporadic about admin stuff here, and any help with vandalism is always welcome. There are no hard and fast rules for admin & bureaucrat requests, but we normally tend to consider them after getting to know editors over a longer time frame. That said, I'd like to check with the rest of the admin team to hear their thoughts rather than make a unilateral decision. In the meantime, keep up the good work! --xensyriaT 22:45, September 9, 2016 (UTC)
    • You're absolutely right but we don't have any admins active other than you and by that I mean, they haven't been active for months and may have simply left the wiki, you can see their last contributions which were probably months or years ago, most of the users leaving wikia as a whole. That's why I came to you because you're the only active admin/b'crat left here but I respect your decision. Ghost pixel 1 by zombiepattyfag-d9c9wvwAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 23:36, September 9, 2016 (UTC)

ReportEdit

Check this report below, no one has been active other than you, not only this, there's a 1/100 chance that they'll answer you, that's why I think it's time to recruit new b'crats to the wiki, so as to improve the administrative stability and consistency. In short, you're the only admin available on the Matrix wiki. Ghost pixel 1 by zombiepattyfag-d9c9wvwAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 00:05, September 10, 2016 (UTC)
Checkthisout

Latest activity report, no one has been active this year, other than you.

A lot of the wiki as it currently stands was created by Sclera1 (who, as you can see, has been more active than me this year).
The main problem seems to me that we get editors, like me, yourself, and the others I've tagged above, who do great work and are often the only ones really active at the time, but who then burn out, leaving the wiki unguarded from vandals and spammers for months at a time.
The solution to this could be building a stronger community to keep editors doing occasional work rather than all-out blitzes, and perhaps granting admin rights to editors we trust (as a bureau elsewhere I guess you'll know these user rights all boil down to trust).
For the longer term, yes, we will definitely need a strong team of people who identify and give these admin rights out, but (and let me know if you disagree), I don't think that's a problem at the moment.
In the meantime, do you need admin rights to deal with spam, or anything else? --xensyriaT 12:01, September 10, 2016 (UTC)
  • I absolutely acknowledge your notion that designating b'crats comes all down to trust and I respect that, that's what I do on a couple of other wikis as well, so I guess, I'll just edit here and I would love if you appoint me as an operator (only admin rights) so that I can make a few slight typos in the media wiki, lave the wiki in needed sections and several other implementations that might match the Matrix' digital code, out of all have the privilege to be a part of the stellar team and I'll always keep you updated, in this way, you can keep an eye on my activities and eventually, we can have that trust factor in the upcoming month/months, what do you say? :) --Ghost pixel 1 by zombiepattyfag-d9c9wvwAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 01:52, September 11, 2016 (UTC)

Small Background InfoEdit

Well, in order to get you know more about me and earn the trust factor, here's some of the stuff that is related to my contributions on different wikis:

Hoping to hear back from you :) and yes, I was wondering if you could give me a specific date regarding the designation Thanks. --Ghost pixel 1 by zombiepattyfag-d9c9wvwAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 01:36, September 13, 2016 (UTC)

VandalismEdit

Our wiki was hit by a small time vandalism of a random Russian ip, this afternoon, I've renamed the page and added it in the vandalism category. Can you please block the ip and delete the page? I still don't have any admin rights to do so. 

  • Thanks for the heads up. I've moved the page back to the original name (along with the others you'd moved on Thursday – please don't move them in the future, tagging for deletion is enough, and makes it easier to review the deletion logs), deleted it and applied a block. I've also taken a look at the vandalism template you made (Template:Vandalism), and made it add the pages it's put on to Category:Pages for deletion and Category:Vandalism, so you don't have to add them as well. --xensyriaT 10:54, September 13, 2016 (UTC)
P.S. Please remember to sign your comments ;) --xensyriaT 10:59, September 13, 2016 (UTC)
  • I renamed them because few of these recent pages were named on either racial, abusive or controversial terms. --Ghost pixel 1 by zombiepattyfag-d9c9wvwAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 11:19, September 13, 2016 (UTC)

Project PiracyEdit

  • Hey Xen, I've made the piracy page, it took some elbow grease, research and of course a couple of bucks to purchase a few items but I've accomplished the task and it looks quite splendid, you can improvise stuff if you want, here's the link: PiracyGhost pixel 1 by zombiepattyfag-d9c9wvwAli Rocky: VC Myth Hunter 13:29, September 20, 2016 (UTC)
  • That's awesome, looking great! Always good to document this stuff, and must have taken loads of work. I'll try to add something on the various digital rips as and when I can. Cheers! --xensyriaT 09:40, September 21, 2016 (UTC)


Hovercraft Edit

Hi Xensyria,


In response to your edits on my pages, thanks for your comments. I would like a link to the behind-the-scenes of the Zion dock, and I am still trying to find a video of the hovercraft Vigilant so I can get an actual image of it into the Wiki.


Thanks a lot,

Transmedia Storytelling Edit

Hi, Xensyria.

How are you? I'm Yantibet, an academic researcher from Brazil. I'm doing an research about transmedia storytelling and Matrix universe is my study case. 

I'd like to ask u if u can help me finding detailed information about those 5 comic books editions, from 3 first series to 2 last volumes, I mean, I cannot find which years they were lauched in oficial page, cause it was shut down by Warner Bros. already. 

Can u help me, please?

I've just recently joined Wikia, and I'm still trying to understand how things work here. I'd like to colaborate to this plataform as soon I have results of my master's dissertation.

Thank you a lot!

Best regads. :)

Hi, Xensyria!

Thanks for your help! 

Yeah! I knew part of you said, but did not know yet about the new movie to be made, that's amazing! haha. I also took most of informations from Internet Archive, but I'm afraid some of those years could be wrong... I made my research in:

1) https://web.archive.org/web/20010626190051/http://whatisthematrix.warnerbros.com:80/cmp/cx_archive.htmlEdit

Part of my work is this (sorry not translating it fully to english, but my classification in 48 "unidades de fragmento narrativo" or 48 Units of Storytelling Fragments in form "#AB" I think is enough to get it. Is it?):

As you can see, I add the book "The Art of The Matrix" as a Metalinguistic Narrative as we can imagine all first movie again by means of its storyboard. (even through the cut scenes originally conceived in the original storyboard of the film made by the Wachowski sisters, get it?)

Is that correct? The years are precise? Is it incomplete in some way?

Thanks!

Best regars,

Re: CleanupEdit

No prob.

Also, might want to look at this page. Think it might need housekeeping as well (I'd make a joke about deletion, but it would be too literal).--Hawki (talk) 08:49, July 26, 2018 (UTC)


I hope this finds you well Edit

I hope this finds you well. my name is Joseph.  Im looking for people to connect with in my love for the matrix and in my questioning of reality.

im 26, Im not crazy.  Im curious if you feel the same. much care yo.

Spacecase916 (talk) 07:45, October 17, 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I would recommend the /r/Matrix and /r/TheMatrix subreddits, and MatrixFans.net. --xensyriaT 09:10, October 17, 2018 (UTC)

Hi! thank you so much for that attention and that thanks!

it is appreciated.  You made yoursself very clear but i still have questions.

  •      You dont feel like acemic references are needed and I agree.  I would still like to put them when i make edits.  Is this okay? I feel like it makes things seemless.  ALSO it is waaaaay easier than citing the scene. But I will also cite the scene too. Does every scene have a page? that'll be fun to make too.
  • and second i have no idea what this means: "name=" parameters should ideally be 'human-readable' as well rather than just using numbers (e.g.name="reloaded-the architect" rather than name=":0") – it makes it easier for editors to figure out what you're citing without having to check back through the article to see which number refers to what (also makes it easier if the ref tags get put in a different order in a later edit)."


thank you again!

p.s. i dont know how to navigate your talk page so if you could leave one on my page ill def get it

Hi im Ed Edit

Hi im Ed Nice to meet you Ive got a few questions would you be able to help me its about the movies mainly The first one is that if neo looks the way he does inside the matrix and then he comes out of the matrix and looks the same as he did in the matrix ..morthius says that this is rissidual self image ..but neo has never seen himself he has in morthiuses words never used his eyes own eyes before  so would this negate thye possibility that neo is still inside the matrix he never woke up ...and also Did you no that in the book Fear and loathing in las vagas Hunter s thomson talks about when he whent to a bar in 1969 i think ...the bar was called the matrix he saw a band perform that night can u guess what the name of that song was ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gonzopunk (talkcontribs) 11:46, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi Ed. Have replied over on the forum about the RSI & Matrix within a Matrix. Hadn't hear about the Matrix club in Fear and Loathing before though... what was the song? --xensyriaT 18:49, December 10, 2018 (UTC)

Hello! Edit

Hello! My name is Playsonic2, and I wanted to introduce myself as the Fandom Wiki Manager for Matrix Wiki. I am here simply to help the community when needed and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff. If you or anyone else have a question or issue I may be able to assist with (wiki, templates, design, etc.) please feel free to drop a message in my talk page. Thank you!

Cheers, will do! --xensyriaT 15:56, June 6, 2019 (UTC)
Hey! You may have seen some notifications already, but I just wanted to share this blog post from staff about Fandom's upcoming MediaWiki upgrade as it's quite an announcement. Hope all is well over here! Playsonic2 09:18, June 21, 2019 (UTC)
That's good news (stuff like the improved diff engine will be great). Glad it seems like they're listening to you all and making changes for editors, not just focusing on ad revenue. --xensyriaT 11:34, June 21, 2019 (UTC)
And some more news (they're keeping them coming this year!) ...Fandom just launched their official Discord server and lots of editors are joining to chat! In this blog post you can find more information, as well as a server invite link if you feel like joining. Lots of exciting things happening :) Playsonic2 07:54, July 11, 2019 (UTC)

Community Manager Introduction Edit

Hi Xensyria, my name is Antonio and I am a Community Manager of the TV/Movies vertical for Fandom. I wanted to introduce myself and see if you need anything, have any problems, or would like to share any ideas you have. As you may already know, our Community Org is changing. From now on our team will focus even more on building closer relationships with the communities, admins, and users.

We are here to support you and help make this community thrive. If you need anything, feel free to contact me or our Wiki Manager directly at any time. And just so you know, Wiki Managers might be more available than me on weekends.

I will be here together to Playsonic2 -Wiki Manager- for anything you need.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I hope to hear back from you soon! :)--Antonio R. Castro @fandom 00:42, July 13, 2019 (UTC)

New Analytics Dashboard Edit

Heya! I'm here to bring you some more news from Fandom, a big one - the new Analytics Admin Dashboard feature has just been introduced, giving admins access to interesting wiki data. You can now understand better how the wiki is doing and may plan certain things/make decisions based on what you can see there.

Visit Special:Analytics to check it out!

The page Help:Analytics dashboard was also made available if you have any questions about the feature. But please ask me if you have any other questions, as I’m in direct contact with staff and would be able to find out from them.

I hope this is useful! (Agent Smith and Neo seem to be fighting each other on views... but the Main Page beats them both :D) Playsonic2 16:14, August 7, 2019 (UTC)

Re: Matrix 4Edit

No prob. :)--Hawki (talk) 23:12, August 24, 2019 (UTC)

Fandom's Editor Rewards Edit

Heya! I'm passing by to share yet another exciting announcement (mainly making sure these don't go unseen, particularly when they're relevant to dedicated editors like you.) This one is about Fandom's projects for Editor Rewards. You can find all the information in the blog, so not much else to add on my part. Feel free to go and check it if you wish, and comment over there if you have any questions/feedback.

While I'm here, I was glad to check in the page The Matrix 4 that Keanu Reeves will be back, hadn't seen that in the news yet. Though I suppose it's silly to imagine The Matrix without him, particularly now that he's an even bigger star. Playsonic2 13:50, August 30, 2019 (UTC)

Cheers for the update. Will try to connect with yourself and Antonio on Discord over the next few days! And yeah, exciting times. --xensyriaT 22:07, August 30, 2019 (UTC)

Global Taxonomy Edit

Heya!

I'm stopping by with another update from Fandom. There is a blog with details on the Global Taxonomy project. This means that the "related pages" between different wikis should start becoming more connected based on the relationship between their content, similar to what services like Netflix do with recommendations of content based on what a person watched.

That's it for now - see you around! Playsonic2 (talk) @fandom 16:28, November 27, 2019 (UTC)
