This doesn't come lightly, but after extensive discussion among our entire staff, not just limited to admins, we have decided to block you for the one year as we warned. We've reminded you and warned time and time again for all the minor infractions you've done, and you still haven't listened. The final straw was you deliberately trying to avoid using the Minor Request thread seen here.
This is not because of one action, this is as mentioned, several smaller actions over several months, because you at every chance you got pushed the boundaries of the rules even though you should know better.
Take this time to reflect, and learn from your mistakes.
You have been blocked from editing Danganronpa Wiki for extremely disruptive behaviour for which multiple warnings were received, followed by rude behaviour towards an admin. This block is in effect for 1 month.
This is a reminder that your ban will elapse on May 21st.
The moderation team as a whole would like to stress that there will be no more warnings - at this stage given your past behaviour you have gone well beyond us being able to consider your behaviour good faith and have stepped multiple times well into the territory of rules-lawyering and mini-modding.
Most importantly of all, we ask that from now on you re-read your messages before you hit publish and consider how they would look to an outsider. We're human beings who run this Wiki as volunteers, and a certain basic level of politeness for people should be pretty standard, especially for someone like you who is a contacting us on a regular basis asking us to perform tasks for you. By extension you must now only contact moderators by using the requests and suggestions thread, as you have been instructed on multiple occasions, because your constant demands on specific admins and expectations that they are done within a timeframe you have decided are close to harassment and are a constant disruption.
This is your final warning regarding the above. Your next ban will be for 1 year.
After discussing it with the other staff members, we've agreed that editor sandboxes (that aren't for specific Danganronpa Wiki projects) will from now on have a limit of 20 images. This is to prevent editor sandboxes becoming a hindrance to image management projects, such as causing the images to never appear in Special:UnusedImages. Editors are allowed images above this limit only if the collection of images in the sandbox is for a specific purpose, such as preparing to post them on a page - sandboxes are not to be used for personal image storage or for storage for reference for other websites. This rule has been added to Danganronpa Wiki:General Guidelines as of March 10, 2018.
Because your sandbox at User:Raymond1922/sandbox contains hundreds of files that we believe to be unrelated to a project, I would like to ask that you clear your sandbox up to the 20 image limit within the next week. If these images are for your personal use we recommend that you use an outside source such as imgur to host images in the future.
Raymond, we've been aware for a while that you have been copying our research from the Wiki regarding unused content to the various pages on TCRF. While we can't stop you from doing this, and TCRF doesn't have a crediting policy for discoveries, I would appreciate if you would at the VERY LEAST allow me to complete my DR1 scapped content page before posting the content wholesale to the DR1 TCRF page. The scrapped content in my sandbox currently is around 90% my own research undocumented elsewhere (with the exception of some pieces, which are credited to TCRF) and as it being a sandbox implies, I'm very much not finished with working on it, I still have more research to do and likely some corrections and additions to make. I also can't confirm if the content in my sandbox even applies to the PSP version, which is the page you're preparing to add the content to - the Vita & PC versions are their own seperate versions, so a lot of the content wouldn't even be appropriate to add to the PSP page on TCRF. I can and will research if this applies to the PSP rip but that's not my priority at the moment. Scraping through unused assets, sorting and documenting them takes many hours and taking my research and running before I even have the opportunity to post my own work to the Wiki I researched it for really devalues the time and effort I put into it. I hope you can understand where I'm coming from.
I would like you to edit on a larger chunk so that the staff can easily monitor what you are doing. Your edits on the Monokuma Kubs pages are overwhelming as you only do minor edits then publish it three-four times on each Kubs page.
I highly suggest you to edit/fix any error on the page by reading it carefully from the top to the bottom instead of editing one section at a time. Only edit it again whenever you forget to add something/accidentally made a typo there.
Hello Raymond. I'm here to ask you stop requesting file renames for older files on the wiki, for a number of reasons. For starters it's getting excessive, as we the staff have to take time out of our day to fix the names, then make sure to replace them on the various pages which they appear.
There's also the fact it can become tedious, and that we will eventually get to file renames when we start on the image gallery revamp project since these kind of things are better done in batches as opposed to one by one due to the sheer amount of it. In the sort of near future I do plan to start on that, if you need a time frame.
So please keep the minor requests made to be things not related to file renames, UNLESS they're newer files such as V3 material. You are also welcome to simply upload the file (or find a better quality one) with a better file name and add them yourself. Just letting us know when to delete old files.
Raymond, you are blocked, as you well know. Please stop using your message wall as a workaround to make requests. You are blocked for a reason. It's not appropriate for you to keep making requests. Most of our poorly named files are upwards of 3 years old. It can wait.
Please respond to this message to acknowledge that you have read it.
You were warned in this thread about adding images from sandboxes live to wiki pages. Because you failed to listen, you have been blocked from editing for two weeks. Anything further about this issue after these two weeks will result in longer blocks.
Further to Monollama’s comment, I would like to stress to you, since you don’t seem to understand the purpose of our sandboxes, that running sandboxes for large projects is absolutely essential so they can be properly organized and completed to a high standard before being posted to the live pages, and you dipping into them without communicating makes it harder to keep track of what has and hasn’t been done, and makes it harder to make changes if needed if images are on multiple pages already. If you want to help someone with large image sandbox insert images, contact them and communicate with them so they can keep track. With projects this large - hundreds of images - it needs to be done with planning in order that parts don’t get missed. The Wiki has survived without whatever is in our sandboxes for 5 years and it can wait a little longer til we get to them. In the meantime, if you want to help with galleries, there are plenty of OTHER images with poor filenames or poor quality which can be replaced without stepping into other peoples’ projects, as I’m sure you know. But I ask that next time you’re asked to stop doing something, you please listen.
In that thread, Monollama asked me to stop putting images from their sandbox on pages. I assumed it was OK as long as the owner of the sandbox had no problems with it. The images I posted came from User:Nebularman/Sandbox2, so perhaps they should be asked about it. Also, while you said I could replace poorly named files, non-admins can't rename files as far as I know.
“Do not edit other users' sandboxes or userprofiles, even if you mean well. If you find an error in someone's work in progress, or have a suggestion, please bring it up on their message wall rather than editing directly.
The only exception to this rule is collaborations between users (please contact an Admin first to let us know), or in the case of Admins patrolling redlinks, broken images, or replacing templates.”

I have no idea why you would assume pulling content from someones work in progress would be ok, regardless of whether or not its in our rules. If it was ready to be added to pages it would have been added to pages. It’s courtesy to actually COMMUNICATE with someone if you want to help, not just take the reins. “I assumed it was OK as long as the owner of the sandbox had no problems with it.” This is the issue, Raymond: you didn’t ask Nebularman, you just assumed you would be allowed, when thats NOT how collaborating with another person works, at all. That’s like taking someone’s crayon because you think they’re not drawing quickly enough; when you do that they no longer have control over their own work. You can see another user has spent a lot of time on something (screenshotting, naming and uploading hundreds of images) and you’d like to ask if you can help, so you message them asking if you can. If they agree, that person tells you how you can help so that it’s in an organized and methodical way. That’s why we HAVE sandboxes, rather than posting these live to each page. It should be common sense.
Regarding replacing files, no, you don’t have the ability to rename or delete, but you can upload files with better filenames or higher quality and remove the link to the old one.
