Hooks

Here is a link to explain the possible issues. The easiest way to find out what's tripping the filter would be to post it to the writer's workshop and mention the issue so we can look it over and see if it's an issue with the title, using certain blocked keywords (____ the Killer, _____.exe, etc), or odd characters in the title.

How Tommy Really Died

I have a question, did the main role kill Tommy, or did he kill himself? Thanks! --The Greatest Stories Are Never Told, CrazyWords 19:40, February 18, 2015 (UTC)CrazyWords

Please Use Source Mode

The default setting for editing is "Visual Editor." There is really no point in using this setting, as it results in formatting issues.

Please change the setting to "Source Editor."

Click on the option panel below your profile picture in the top right area of the page.

Click "My Preferences," then click the "Editing" tab. Then change the "Preferred Editor" option panel to "Source Editor."

Licenses

Just a heads-up, you currently have conflicting licenses on your latest story. I believe you're looking for this template: "{{By-user|Alex Ross Writer|license=cc-by-nc}}" which disallows commercialization, but allows for sharing with citation. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 05:22, March 9, 2016 (UTC)

Important - Some of your pastas may be deleted

Hello, I am a bot operated by Underscorre. If you believe you have received this message in error, please contact Underscorre via his talk page.

Recently, it was brought to the attention of the Creepypasta Wiki staff that pastas posted under licenses other than CC BY-SA are not allowed to be hosted on Wikia. Please see this announcement for more information. I have automatically identified that a number of your pastas may have been released under a non-compliant license (e.g: CC BY-ND, CC BY-NC, etc). Unfortunately, we cannot allow any pastas to remain on the site which are not licensed under CC BY-SA/public domain, and your pastas will be deleted some time in the future if they remain under a non-compliant license.

We would like to sincerely apologise for this situation. For many years, the staff here have operated under the assumption that alternative licenses were acceptable, and we intended to protect the rights of authors by allowing flexibility in how they licensed their stories. These deletions have not come about through any error at all on your part, we simply got it wrong.

As mentioned above, deletions will occur some time in the future (possibly in September). Right now, you have two options. If you wish for your pasta(s) to remain on Creepypasta Wiki, you will need to change the license on all of your pages to CC BY-SA. I have included a guide on how to do this below. If you wish for your pasta(s) to remain under their current licenses and be deleted, you do not need to do anything. I will automatically delete any of your pages which remain incompatibly licensed some time in the future.

Once your pasta has been deleted, it can be restored if you wish to change the license to CC BY-SA. Contact an administrator via their talk page, and ask for your pasta to be restored, being sure to note that the pasta was deleted because of licensing issues.

Changing the license on your pasta

Your pasta was identified as being incompatible due to the use of the {{By}} or {{By-user}} template, with the license parameter set to something other than cc-by-sa. For example, it could look something like the following:

{{by|Underscorre|user=yes|license=cc-by-nd}}
{{by-user|Underscorre|license=cc-by-nc}}

To change the license to CC BY-SA, alter the license parameter to show the correct license. Note that, if using the {{By-user}} template, the license parameter is actually filled in automatically, and you can remove it altogether to have the same effect of changing to BY-SA. The examples above would become the following:

{{by|Underscorre|user=yes|license=cc-by-sa}}
{{by-user|Underscorre}}

If you change the license in this fashion, your pastas will not be deleted. Please be aware of the implications of this license change - if you are switching from BY-NC/BY-ND, you will be allowing commercial use/derivatives of your pasta. Ensure this is what you want before changing license.

Contact an administrator if you need any assistance with changing your pasta's license.

Incompatible Pastas

I have included a list of your pastas which have incompatible licenses below. Once again, we'd like to apologise for this situation. If you need any assistance/information, please contact an administrator, or ask a question in the announcement thread. Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you.

Pasta Deletions

Hello, I am a bot operated by Underscorre. If you believe you have received this message in error, please contact Underscorre via his talk page.

You should have received a message from me in August informing you of upcoming deletions of pastas not licensed under CC BY-SA. This announcement provides more information about why this is happening. Unfortunately, you do not appear to have updated the licensing of your pasta(s), and I have had to delete them.

Once again, the wiki staff would like to extend our sincerest apologies for this situation. This was not at all our desired outcome, but we need to abide by FANDOM/Wikia's terms of use.

Your pasta(s) can be restored if you wish to change their license to CC BY-SA. Contact an administrator via their talk page, and ask for your pasta to be restored, being sure to note that the pasta was deleted because of licensing issues.

I have included a list of deleted pastas below. Once again, we'd like to apologise. If you need any assistance/information, please contact an administrator. Thank you for your understanding.
