The is an Avatar discord, but it'd not affiliated with this wiki. Some of our users created it, and there even was a War Room forum about implementing it, though the majority of the users involved in that discussion eventually decided against creating a discord server.
Not 100% sure how to source it, but the source for the characters in his name is the name of the housing project he took over from Asami and Zhu Li. You can see them in the Raiko Residencies image you uploaded. And considering the pronunciation of his name, that sort of makes his name more Japanese.
I'm sure you've seen me pestering other users lol, but if you'd also like to send in a response to our valentine-themed question then we'd love to hear it. The question this time is, "What is your main character's idea of a perfect date?" If you have time, send in maybe 3-4 sentences to my email, email@example.com. We'd probably need them in before the 14th of Feburary if possible. :) But if you need more time to think about it let us know.
I haven't deleted any discussion recently. However, it may be that I have deleted a discussion with that title at some point and you're just seeing the remnant of that deletion. You should normally be able to create a new forum thread.
Can you link me to the forum board where you tried to post your message?
It can also always be a bug. It's been known that sometimes messages just don't get through the system and they just vanish. I would just post your message again and see whether or not it does appear this time. All I can say for sure is that I didn't delete it :-)
Hey Lady Lostris! I'm Jamie from FANDOM's Community Development team! Not sure if we never asked you if you are interested in turning on the Discussions feature for this community, and migrating the Threaded Forums across as well. I know you use your forums quite a bit, so it might be a good idea to turn on discussions so there is time to transition.
In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. Discussions also links with our FANDOM Apps, which this community has and it allows app users to easily take part in Discussions as well. You can read more about Discussions here.
For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.
If you have some concerns, Discussions, and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions and Forums will be sunsetted as a feature, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.
Feel free to have an open discussion with your community about this, and I'm available for any questions you might have. Have a good one!
As part of the Community Council, I'm well aware of the Discussions feature, as well as it existing shortcomings. My immediate concerns about the feature are related to the lack of true wiki integration (easy linking to the wiki itself, to name just one thing) and, since it also focuses more on external communication (like our old IRC server used to do, which backfired tremendously), it's increased need for monitoring. Sure, the global moderators are a help, but they can't be everywhere. I know that we all will have to use the feature eventually, but I'd like to see it evolve more before and become a true part of the wiki before we actually board that ship.
We will be rolling out a bunch of new features in the months to come, and some of what you mentioned should be covered in those updates. In the meantime, I can show you this tool. http://dev.wikia.com/wiki/DiscussionsFeed as right now, changes to discussions do not appear in recent activity.
I got a notification about the removal by you of a few photos I posted in my profile. What's with that? I mean, I don't know how to perfectly use the forum and when I clicked on the notification in my email the profile opened with two collumns comparing the edits I made with and without photos as I understood. I did not really know what to click so I just pressed Escape and was back on my profile but without two photos. What's with that? Were they illegal? Or unrelated? They are not absolutely neccesary for me but still would like to know what happened.
Hi there! I deleted your images as they breached our Avatar Wiki:Images and Avatar Wiki:User page policy. We have a rather strict image policy here by not allowing the uploading of images to solely be used on forums, user pages, or blog posts, as well as requiring every image to be properly sourced. This rule was put in place to mainly saveguard copyright protected images, but it also serves to keep the images on this wiki manageable.
As such, the images you uploaded were deleted. However, if you'd like to still display them on your profile, you could always upload them on another wiki and link to the images from there (I did the same with the infobox image I have on my profile).
I hope this clarifies things for you. If not (or if you have any other question), feel free to ask!
I don't see anything wrong with the thread. The post suggesting to look of nsfw images comes with a clear warning that you'd be looking up +18 content (as does the "name" nsfw, since that means "not suited for work").
