*bump*

So what's with the infinite mass of fake/spam accounts that have been/still are being created over the past few months?
I mentioned that a few replies up. I used to enjoy looking through the recent changes, but now I can't be bothered.

Also, is this really the best place to ask? You're probably better off putting it on The Infosphere itself where the admins are more likely to see it.

A while ago I edited the Street Racing Gang page to use the names of the characters that were revealed in the commentary for that episode. I just discovered that it was undone with this message:

"Despite the fact that it's considered canon, information present in the commentaries is mostly irrelevant. It's not Futurama."

I'm done with trying to edit the infosphere now, because that's a load of bullshit. There's no way I can take it seriously when crap like this is pulled.

Apparently actual useful information being added that vastly improves the quality of the writing isn't worth a damn. How the hell is the quality of the wiki going to improve if generic names like "guy with glasses" are deliberately used over their actual names? Not to mention that the commentaries are used as a source for hundreds of things elsewhere on the wiki. If information from the Futurama commentaries isn't relevant on a Futurama wiki, then nothing is.

Sorry, I'm just a bit pissed off and had to rant about it somewhere. The Infosphere used to be great.

Unfortunately, I have too many other obligations to be able to take up the fight.  I agree with you UnrealLegend, I disagree with the conduct, but I simply cannot muster it.

And that's largely the problem, you got me as an ally, but I won't bother if no one else will.  Sanfazer is the only one maintaining the wiki these days.

I don't really care enough to aggressively chase after it, but I did question it on the talk page.

That's OK.  But I fear Sanfazer is not doing well enough to maintain an active community.

Sanfazer is the main reason I don't bother editing the Infosphere anymore.

It's his own personal playground as far as he sees it, no matter how well you perfect an edit to Infosphere standards he swoops in and alters it to suit him. Had enough of it.
