I am EmmettLovesAnimals' mom and I created this account because he's been in meltdown mode for days since being (understandably, from what I now see) banned by Mr. Crabmeat. Emmett is 23 and he is profoundly autistic. He's wicked-smart but has very little understanding of social norms and such...he's academically advanced but has the social skills of a child. I can help him understand these things with a little guidance...this website is very important to him - he spends a lot of time on it. I don't know if there's a way to have users include me in messages when Emmett breaks a rule or something...he is very rule-based, but it takes some patience and explaining (using language he understands). Help, please...I just need help.
You have been breaking a lot of rules, first vandalizing pages, then repeatedly inserted false information, and your now continuing to spam the same messages you already asked NWL, so consider this your FINAL WARNING, if you keep on doing those things, you will be no longer welcome to the Parody Wiki.
Oh, here. I found this. Sorry again about the post on your blog post. Please let me help resolve this. Emmett struggles with expressive and receptive language, he is profoundly autistic. With just a little guidance from you I can help him understand the rules so he can have a positive experience on here. Thank you.
Since April, we have made a new ALL-CAPS policy, we only allow that on file formats. However, if a user really needs to shout indicating he/she is angry, they can use a single exclamation point (!) or using bold or itlaics instead.
I will give him 3 more chances since he's autistic.
Okay, I am still trying to understand. So far from what I see he needs to:
1) not post cartoon animals or pictures of stuffed animals on a nature wiki, is that right?
2) He should not type in all caps (this may take some work to help him understand, I will try)
3) Vandalize? What is this?
4) Anything else?
I guess I just need help understanding more specifically what he is doing that is breaking the rules. I will print out the rules you linked above and review them with him. Try to help him understand. I appreciate your grace. I don't intend for him to need "babysitting" - I will edit his profile to include a link to my profile, asking to be contacted if he's causing trouble.
1. Posting Cartoon or Stuffed Animals is ok, however, we just don't allow this on species list unrealated to the topic.
3. Vandalism, may include removing content from pages without a good reason, inserting gibberish in pages, inserting false information (the rarest we encounter since this is a fanon wiki), and replacing content with garbage (this is the most common type of vandalism we encounter)
