Except the following is stated in the Adventure Time: Manual of Style: "Though if a member of the staff makes a comment on how wrong a model sheet names a character, what the staff calls them will be used, e.g., Lemon Camel instead of Lemon Horse."
Kinda sounds to me like this is more a case of the admins simply having no desire to put the effort into renaming the various articles that will need to be renamed based on Muto's statement so that this Wiki can be as accurate as possible. Either that or none of you just want to admit that you were wrong, even if it means disregarding your own rules.
In my experience, that is not how most Wikis do things. They simply have a placeholder name until the character receives a proper name, and if they don't then oh well. The point of a Wiki should be to present information on its subject matter in the most accurate way possible, not to sate the OCD tendencies of the admins to the point where they are not only disregarding their own rules but they are also completely ignoring any input from the creators of said subject matter. I shouldn't be surprised though, I've seen countless Wiki's fall into the trap of its admins becoming so inwardly focused that they care little for the opinions of others, and this one does not seem to be any exception. No matter how you look at this, all of you are simply disregarding your own previously-established policies for the sake of convenience, even if it's at the cost of common sense.

This isnt' just about him. The rules very clearly state that if a member of the staff says that a name other than that on the model sheet is a character's proper name, then that automatically overrides everything else. Adam Muto has literally just said that [i]all[/i] Candy Poeple are to go by their proper names first, and model sheet names second. If you don't want to follow your own rules, then you should probably just rewrite it.
There are already redirects in place for all of the candy people. We need to have a vote on it anyways, before doing anything. I think we should leave this topic alone after that. It's not even that important, to be honest. GiariaEvil Mani Mani21:44 Thu Jan 29
Hello there! Just needed to talk about a few things from the star wiki.
I noticed that you gave rollback rights to someone. While this person has made quite a few edits, a chunk of their edits came from adding multiples of the same video and constantly doing and undoing an minor edit on an article. Also, I know this person kept asking to be an admin, but they haven't been around very long. I feel like it was a bit too soon and the person shouldn't have been doing those things to pull up their edit count, but I understand if you want the person to be a rollback.
Maybe I'm just lost, but I think we need to figure out a system like the rules and how the wiki staff system will work. It'd be helpful for users and nice to have set rules in use.
Hey. Yeah. Rollback rights are reversible. It's more like a teaser to get users to contribute more, in a sense. I mean, if he/she doesn't do well with the rights, we'll just revoke it. Haha but to be honest, I didn't really look into the quality of his/her edits. That's my bad. However, it is true he/she has been here longer than most people. Apparently he/she created a new account.
Wikipedia is not a reliable source, really haha. Kinda ironic, since we run on wiki as well, haha. If that airdate is accurate, I'm pretty sure it came from somewhere (e.i TV guide, website, etc). Find the source and we're good.
I have been informed that there will be a meeting of the AT crew soon at a specific time.
What is wrong with using that crew-only message board so that people who are busy can view and respond when they have time?
I guess I convinced her that the message board is good for people who can't all meet at the same time... especially this month.
I have party after party to go to this month and that means SO MUCH baking nonstop. Why can't the non-Christmas winter parties at least be in January, they have to compete with all the Christmas ones...
It's a monthly thing. It's run by felinoel, so he would be the best person to ask if you want more information. It basically covers the upcoming and recent episodes, great things by the fans, featured things on the wiki, and has been used to issue notices in the past.
