That is absolutely not what we're talking about. What we mean by "shipping" is fan speculation that characters in the PAW Patrol series are dating or something similar. It just belongs on the Fanon wiki, to be honest. It's sort of like discussing politics; it usually ends in argument, and we try to maintain a peaceful environment.

Well maybe you could show me where I violated the guideline

Comments like these count as shipping/relationship fanon. With all due respect, just be sure to not mention it on here. I hope this answers your question.
Also when I wanted to talk to you I had no way of contacting you. If I had known that it was a simple mistake on my part would change what I say before I put it down. Quick question what happened to my Halloween ideas?
I'd just like to post a note thanking you for unblocking my account. You may wish to know that my username Bar on my userpage still lists me as a primary authority, as does the administrators template. I hope to carry on helping you here, regardless of the job!
Sorry for busting in but once again, why? Why would you banned such a good Admin?
I've never had any problem with him. He's also never mess up with us. I just can't imagine, what wrong with him? Just because a stranger told you about his dark past and you decided to ban him? That's just, ridiculous.
He's a nice person. In fact, he's one of the most helpful Admin, besides You, Pablor and Tbrays13. He's even made his pledge for being a good Administrator, which represent his seriousness to be a good person. He's also made a blog showing his gratefulness from being accepted here, which most users didn't do that and now you revoke it just because his dark past? Seriously? That's just so mean.
You can't judge people by his past, whatsoever. That's what my teacher and my parents told to me. A bad past isn't a problem when you want to change yourself. This guy doesn't seems to cause any problem to us and if you have any problem with him, just discuss it together and that way, it would be much better instead of banning him without discussing first.
He's a good user. He's a doctor, a doctor who treat sick childrens . Those childrens, which is the main viewer of this show, PAW Patrol. Banning him simply for a very unreasonable reason is pretty much means you're discourage him. It might affect his life and also his patients (those childrens). A pediatrician usually has a big heart, which means that they're quite sensitive to many thing and this banning could be affect him.
We've got this guy, which is rare, if you think again. He's one of adult PAW Patrol fans besides SuperSpyChaseFan2015 (I only know these two) and even more, he's a pediatrician whose usually tends to be friendly, careful and helpful. Banning him would simply means we're wasting a good potential for our wikia. There's no any good reason for us to ban him.
Please, think more than twice on your decision. If reading this comment once isn't enough, try read it twice, or three times but if you still want to ban him, well, there's nothing I could do any further. I hope you aren't lack of heart, which is basically what I'm really need right now. Just for you to know, I've spent 2 hours typing this comment because I was shocked about your decision but I know, it's worth it.
I hope anyone would agree with me. I just can't let one of my best Admin banned simply because someone told SirBlaze about his bad past and for me, that's just insane
I understand and respect your points. But having an administration with a "trolling past" is a threat to the wikia, its users and content, you must understand that much thought and time was put into this hard decision, we didn't just up and say we're gonna do this. I'll also touch on the fact that there have been accidental troll promotions on this wikia and the PAW Patrol Fanon Wikia, we learned from those unfortunate situations, as I said before this was a hard decision to make, but it was needed, we understood the response we would get, but we we given legitimate information.
Where I did my vandalism is neither here nor there. The point is that I should have disclosed this from the start. Please leave the admins alone, they did what they had to do. I appreciate your kind words and all, but lay off SirBlaze and Tbrays30 - they did nothing wrong.
Please block this account as a sock, and thank you for letting me be part of your life.
As several have now responded to this thread, I figured it would be best to leave several small responses to parts I took interest in below, along with the very warning message I was sent, in quote form.
Before I begin, I would like to remind you all (except for one admin who already knows of the situation) that this was entirely a business and precautionary based decision and was not meant to spite DoctorOfLittlePatients personally in any way. Quite frankly, I never asked for responses outside of the administration, but there are a lot of unanswered questions so I will respond anyway. Let's begin.
I have a question for you. Why did you block DoctorOfLittlePatients for indefinite like that? He's our only staff user.
First of all, he was not our only staff user. There are 6 other users beside myself who have administrative powers. As said before, I blocked him indefinitely because someone (who I will not name as they've asked to remain anonymous) supplied me accurate evidence of his past Wikipedia behavior, which you will be reading soon.

I am currently in the process of discussing this situation with him on a different wiki. I will keep your statement in mind if a similar situation pops up in the future.

No, and no:
It's not necessarily unreasonable. I'm detailing it as we speak.
I've already mentioned that this was never meant to spite or discourage him. I am very open to hear his side of the situation, which has already been taking place (see further below)
In conclusion, I will show you all the very message the user (who, again, will not be named) said to me, complete with all links to his evidence.
I've edited Wikipedia for years and recently came across a new alias of one of Wikipedia's worst sockmasters, BarkingFish (the self-proclaimed "Wikipedia's Very Own World Hide and Seek Champion"...yes, he really did call himself this). You know him as "DoctorOfLittlePatients". Since 2004 (it seems shorter, but that's twelve years ago), "Sockpuppet Supreme" used alternate accounts to carry out all kinds of malicious edits. In 2013, he was indefinitely blocked after admitting to his decade of vandalism, proxy abuse and sockpuppetry, but a block appeal was accepted in 2015. He was subsequently re-blocked for continuing to vandalize the site using other accounts. Since I see he has crept his way into the PAW Patrol site, it's for the best that I mention his past.
In case you don't see the connection between SocktorofLittlePatients and BarkingFish, take a look at his 2004 userpage in which he identifies himself as "Thorsteinn" and says he was born in Iceland. Why, those are the same few facts he's shared here and here! The birthdates don't always add up, but Thor (or should I say Jurgen Hurgenmflurgen III) was never one for keeping his birthday consistent: in 2004, he lists it as March 15, and in 2006, he changed it to January 22 (which is just a day after his currently-listed birthdate).
One thing that has stayed consistent from his past life as "the Fish" and his Wikia reincarnation is his interest in medical subjects. I'm no doctor, but he seems pretty knowledgeable in this field. I'm just suspicious as to why an accomplished individual like him has devoted so much time to vandalizing Wikipedia articles (and, perhaps in the future, PAW Patrol fanpages). Is there more to "Thor" than there seems? It's up to you decide, but if I were you, I wouldn't trust him for a minute.
While I believe the user took some inappropriate jabs at DoctorOfLittlePatients, his evidence seems to be solid. Through 2016, I spoke to DoctorOfLittlePatients many times through our wiki's chat, and he often told me of his apparent ISP problems, which could explain all of the Wikipedia block evasions detailed in the message above.
This morning, Doc acknowledged his past in a detailed message, which can be seen here. In the message, he linked a PasteBin document further detailing his side of the situation, citing a recent mental crisis in the time of his Wikipedia-related past (I believe the document itself was his appeal to Wikipedia staff that the warning user mentioned in his message). He then apologized. Now that I have heard both ends of the conversation and some response from the people here, I am considering unblocking his account. While he likely won't have administrative abilities here upon return, I do believe he can be trusted enough to still contribute and engage in discussion with all of you and myself. I just need more time to investigate and possibly get more details before I do anything further. I ask that if I decide to unblock him that discussion of this topic stays very minimal.
I hope this answers everyone's questions and concerns for now.
Hello Sirblaze. I just wanted to send you a note, offering my services as a possible admin in the future, should you ever need one. I have had some previous experience as an admin of my own EZboard (now Yuku), which no longer exists, as well as a co-admin of a Yahoo Group, The Anime Fox Club, which is currently very inactive. I do understand any misgivings you may have, as I am not online every day (some weeks I'm only online once a week), but I do come to the Wiki every time I am online. I'm just thinking as someone willing to keep an eye on things whenever I do happen to be online, to help keep the Wiki clean. This is not a request to be made an admin, just an offering of my services if you ever need them in the future. Thank you for your time, and have a good day!
In light of recent events, I think it best that I retract my offer. I was a bit premature, just thinking in terms of being someone else who could help police the wikia for any spammers, etc. but i see that I still have much to learn in regards to the technical stuff involved in just making edits and things like that. I'm sure there are much more qualified individuals than myself, but I do look forward to continuing to participate here as a regular member, and helping out where I can. But thank you for your time, and I'll see you around the wikia. :)
My first two edits to this wiki were reverted, so let me explain. I saw two pages on the Insights "Uncategorized" module so I decided to help by adding categories. Apparently they were not correct and I am very sorry for this. I wasn't trying to vandalize, I just don't understand what the categories mean or why Marshall and Zuma's gallery pages can't have "Dog Galleries" on them.
Also, thank you very much for putting my Shimmer and Shine Wiki on the navbar. We don't get many visitors, so it will probably help bring some traffic over.
Thank you! Just one question: can I change the category on Zuma's Gallery/Tracker Joins the Pups! from (E) Tracker's Protagonist Galleries to (E) Zuma's Protagonist Galleries? It's Zuma's gallery and most of the pictures don't have Tracker on them, so it would be more useful. The same with Marshall's.
Hi SirBlaze, I hope you're well. I'm just following up with you on my note of a few weeks ago concerning my not being around due to lack of internet connection at home - I'm pleased to be able to let you know that effective September 6th/7th, I have a new ISP who will be connecting me.
I'm sorry I've not been around so much, but thankfully I'll now be able to fix this. If you need to chat, drop a reply here and I'll be in touch.
Hi again. Unfortunately, a technical fault has left me still without my phone or broadband. I understand the difficulty this leaves, as I've not been active as I should be, for quite a few weeks now. I would like to keep my post if possible - my ISP are trying to fix this as quickly as they can :)
