Heya, I cleaned up the threads & impersonations n such. He can keep doing it because these new AbuseFilters hadn't been turned on yet. Given the degree of harassment & the fact that Leilei said they would in principle be ok with two of the three filters, I've enabled those two. If we have all three, then he won't be able to post threads at all.
Heya, regarding Thread:7701, I have some proposals that I'd like to implement but would appreciate your opinion on:
Temporarily prevent new users from posting in threads. I'll see if I can do it via account age (e.g. accounts younger than a certain age cannot post) but otherwise would have to do it via edit count. Could stop the impersonation & general harassment, but might hinder new user communication for a bit.
Temporarily prevent new users from editing user pages. Same metrics as above, but could temporarily stop new users from editing their user pages.
Temporarily prevent new users from uploading images. Again same metrics, stops newbies uploading pornography, but could also obstruct image uploads from new users. I don't think this'll be a huge problem with the series being over.
If you're ok with these preventive measures I'd be happy to implement them, I just didn't want to go ahead & put them in place since there's a possibility it could obstruct new, good faith users from editing.
Understood. Also, I believe that I can do it via account age (not edits), so as long as an account is, say, a month old it should be able to edit user pages & post threads & upload images, even if they haven't edited on this Wiki before, but brand new accounts will not be able to do so. Given that, are you still not liking #1? EDIT: To clarify, this is just message wall threads, not article comments. I'm not proposing any restrictions to article comments.
However long you want. My intent was to set it for a month & increase it by two weeks if there's still been vandalism in the last week before expiry, & keep doing that until he goes away for good or you change your mind. If you have a different idea we can totally use your suggestion instead.
Whatever you decide, the AbuseFilters have been created & are ready for deployment here. You being an Administrator, all you'd have to do is go into any of the last three AbuseFilters you want to enable, check Enable this filter, & then hit SAVE FILTER at the bottom. The filter will then be active. There are descriptions of each that tell you what they do.
You put down this, didn't you? Did you, by happenstance, go to this TV Tropes page, looked at the five-man band trope, and copied and pasted it into the FRANXX page's own trivia section? Because I was the one who put down the five-man band trope on that TV Tropes page, for both the Squad 13 parasites and their FRANXX units.
I'm sorry, one of our editors must have done that. While I am the admin for this page, I am not behind every edit on this wiki. If you would like it removed or credited to you, don't hesitate to inform me. Apologies for any inconveniences caused.
Hello, this is a long term vandal with a decent enough VPN to make range IP blocks essentially impossible. We've been keeping an eye out for him, & I've just now blocked his latest batch of accounts, but there's little to be done other than to block & ignore (that's why you should never contact the person).
Additionally, if you wish, we can Admin-protect your user page so that only Admins may edit it for a time, but you wouldn't be able to edit it either. If you do want to go that route for a period of time, you could get your user page exactly how you want it before protection is applied & then wait for the protection to expire to edit it again - no one could vandalize it while it was temporarily protected.
ugh its really useless then. i guess we can either protect the entire wiki (though i really don't want that) or just block and clear the vandal's shenanigans whenever they create a new account. hopefully they stop vandalising the wiki altogether :-/
Hi Leigh. Thank you for keeping an eye on Zero Two birthdate/age from incorrect information after I'd pointed it out a while back.
I noticed recently that the other characters of Squad 13 now have an incorrect age (stated as 14/15). As far as I know, there is no officially stated present age for all of Squad 13, and should be listed as "unknown" instead on this wiki. The closest thing to an official age is flashback Mitsuru being nine years old when he received his elixir injection (shown on Nana's tablet on Episode 11, 5:37). I suspect many DarliFra fans came to assume Squad 13 is fourteen years old because it's a common age for anime characters.
I know you aren't as active these days, but could you be on the lookout for people adding inaccurate ages on the character pages? Thank you
Actually, I do remember their ages being stated somewhere (I think it was Hiro being 14 so it was assumed that everyone else in the squad is 14). I will be rewatching the show for the next half of the month as the place where I live in is under lockdown so I will look out for that. Thanks for telling me!
I have the whole series and have watched it too many times to count. Their ages are not explicitly stated but there are hints (such as Dr FRANXX saying the kids are entering puberty in ep 8); on average, girls begin puberty at ages 10–11 and complete puberty at ages 15–17; boys generally begin puberty at ages 11–12 and complete puberty at ages 16–17.
If it's not actually stated then why is it so precise (even specifying that they are all exactly 15 after episode 9)? I suspect in the FRANXX universe, puberty works differently since Dr. FRANXX said they were entering puberty but they don't appear to be 10-11/11-12 which are the IRL years for beginning puberty.
If the age isn't known we should put "(estimated)", or a range like "13-19" (since they are referred to as "teenagers"). I just don't want people believing 14/15 is an absolute certainty, since about a year ago somebody had edited Zero Two's birthdate to an arbitrary date and the community accepted it since it wasn't caught for a long time.
Yes but they are genetically modified/engineered since humans don't have yellow blood cells, etc. In addition, there was the comment about Nana entering puberty in episode 17 at 16:54 which is why I think puberty here is not exactly the same as IRL.
Has any episode showed an actual date? I know it shows the passage of time by changing of seasons that we can see in Mistilteinn but there hasn't been an actual current date shown in any episode (excluding Dr. FRANXX's flashbacks in episode 19 of course) has there?
If we don't know their ages I don't see why we have to be very precise based off of a guess. Can we put "between 13-19" on Squad 13 for accuracy, since those are the teen years and I believe they were referred to as "teenagers" officially.
The yellow blood cells are meant to make their bodies endure piloting the Franxx. They take them since early childhood to slowly make their bodies prepared for piloting.
I never understood the whole Nana relapsing back into puberty. My only thought was that she was still going through it when she underwent the procedure to become immortal. I think it had more to do with her emotions because it happened when she recalled erased memories of her dead partner.
I don’t want this to turn into a fight over what ages should be listed. Maybe it just best to leave it be. They are likely between 14-15 at the start, I am almost 100% sure. But the only person who can confirm their ages is Nishigori but he has never said anything because no one is asked him that question.
Regarding the ages of squad 13, I think the writers have deliberately left them out. Remember, they were meant to be disposable, were not expected to live long due to accelerated aging or warfare/pruning. The concept of ‘birthdays’ to mark their age becomes moot when they’re not even considered unique individuals to have their own names. To APE, such intricacies that make an individual unique aren’t needed, what use is the pilot’s age to them when the pilots can die in the next breath and are easily replaced?
It’s just one way to show how much APE have dehumanized the pilots.
However, in one of the ending themes, the girls are portrayed in high school uniforms to hint at their age. They’re not portrayed as university students or young professionals.
