So, this is basically a blog where you can ask various questions about the Maximum Ride Wiki's content, guidelines, etc. and have them answered. I have already added a few questions to this, though I may add more in the future. Ask away!
- Be civil (i.e. no hating, excess flaming, etc.)
- Don't ask questions you already know the answer to. (e.g. Don't ask "How do I create an account here?" if you are a registered user.)
The Actual Q&A
Q: What is the Maximum Ride Wiki?
A: The Maximum Ride Wiki is a collaborative online project dedicated to providing accurate and detailed information about the Maximum Ride franchise by American author James Patterson.
Q: Is the Maximum Ride Wiki an official site?
A: No. We are just a fansite.
Q: Who is allowed to contribute to the Maximum Ride Wiki?
Q: What all is allowed on mainspace pages?
A: Mainspace pages (pages without a prefix like
Template: at the beginning) are meant for factual information. Do not insert fanfiction, libel, or gibberish into them, otherwise a block will be issued. (Fanfiction can go here.)
Q: What all can I add to my userpage?
However, hate, sexually explicit images, and excess language are all strictly prohibited.
Q: Do any of the Maximum Ride Wiki's users have direct connections with James Patterson?
A: I cannot give you a definite answer on that.
Q: I know someone who's being harassed on the Maximum Ride Wiki. What should I do?
A: Report the situation to an administrator so that they can look into it more closely and block the harassing user as necessary.
Q: I'm sorry, but I really just don't support Nevermore/Mylan/[insert controversial Maximum Ride-related topic here].
A: Don't apologize! Everyone is free to have their own opinions. If you want to express yours, state it in a page's article comments—not the actual page, or else that'll be vandalism—and remember to be civil at all times. (However, please don't ever threaten anyone's life here. ._.)
Q: How can I become a(n) [insert user rights position here]?
A: There are no concrete guidelines for gaining user rights right now, but I prefer promoting involved, patient, and knowledgeable users who don't ask for rights.
Q: Is "Rina Maximum Zaslavski" your real name, KCCreations?
A: Lol, no. It's a pen name.
Q: Where did you come up with the idea for this Q&A?
A: Maximum Ride Nudge, a former administrator here, began a Q&A blog but never finished it. Recently, I wrote a different Q&A blog on another wiki, so I decided to do it here, too.
Q: Rider ranger47 copied your Q&A idea. :(
A: Ignore that ⑨.
Q: What's a "⑨"?
A: I actually have no clue. If you want to know, I'd recommend asking Fujiwara. Speaking of which, I probably should do so myself...
