Forum:Formally banning videos
Hello, Temu here. As you may or may not be aware, it is still technically possible for users to add videos to the wiki (through Special:Videos) in spite of the fact that the [[runescape:|main Runescape Wiki]] has that feature disable and our own Images and media policy does not allow for the uploading of videos. As such, I feel that we should have Special:Videos disabled, regardless of what Wikia thinks.
Support - Of course. Videos are redundant on this wiki anyhow. —Ozank 22:19, April 1, 2014 (UTC)
- Addendum - Wikia have chosen to deny our request, providing nothing but a generic reply. It is clear that at our current size Wikia does not care much for our requests:
|“||Upon further review we would like to inform you that this is due to the fact that Special:Videos is part of the standard Wikia navigation and we do not disable it. When the feature first launched we did make a few special exceptions, but we no longer do that and have not done that for some time. So those that do have it disabled is due to the fact that it was "grandfathered in" so to speak and is one of the very few exceptions that exists. I hope this helps clarify things. If there is anything else that I can help with please feel free to contact us.||”|
