This is in regards to the TARDIS Data Core. I am a long-term user of this Wikia (about five years) and I am pretty dismayed to see the mock bureaucracy it has become. I was just blocked by an administrator called Shambala108 for attempting to fix an error that has been present since 2008 and has been made particularly egregious by the rise of Peter Capaldi - the Lucius Caecilius Iucundus page. The character introduces himself to the Doctor as Lobus Caecilius (spelling from http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00hzmlb) and is credited as simply Caecilius. The current name is speculation based upon the historical figure and his fictionalisation in the Cambridge Latin Course. This administrator thoughtlessly reverted my edits, even after I referred him to the sources and proceeded to block me for 24 hours. How can a Doctor Who fan become such a pig-headed apparatchik? A Wikia should not have every edit frozen by deliberation - that is not how they work. I never have felt that this is the Wikia that Doctor Who deserves but you have one of the largest Wikia audiences and you owe it to the fans to get things like this right.
I apologise that you've had to wait for an answer. The whole Wikia network is having some issues right now that have made it hard to answer your question. Please give me a few more minutes to figure out what's going on.
Hi CzechOut, I would like to personally thank you for taking your time in helping this wiki convert to the new infobox template. You and your bot saved us a lot of time and work implementing the new design into over 600 pages! We're all really grateful for your efforts :)
Welcome to the candy crush wikia. I am emmaelise401. Glad too meet you. I would like to thank you personally. I am so excited to see the bot. Btw, do you code at all? Codeing is one of my favorite things.
Oh like 2 minutes. But at this point I've developed a library of common bot situations, so it's usually a matter of just pulling something from the library, and slightly adapting it. The difficulty in a bot run involving infoboxes is usually that people don't uniformly make infoboxes in exactly the same way. So what slows up the process is having to make multiple runs which account for variability. For instance, some people end infoboxes like this:
But some do this:
|imagecaption = whatever }}
That slight change makes a big difference, so I've got to go back through and make sure that the closing braces are on a separate line — before the main bot can even do its work.
