You yourself have been vandalizing the wikis with your fanfiction entries. Especially on Brody. I don't know where you get your sources, but they are not only wrong, they are so wring if it were a meat thrown to the sharks, the sharks would spit it out and starve to death to get the taste out of their mouth. Fix it or give someone else a chance to fix it.
I see you have a sense of humor...you may want to consider adding that to the wiki here instead of spewing infantile behavior. THIS IS NOT WIKIPEDIA nor do we want to be a copy of the factoid that is already being covered well enough on wikipedia. This is a satirical wiki mixed with fact, humor, and creativity. If that's too much for you to comprehend and is causing you to potentially become a character in 'Scanners', then feel free to hang out at Wikipedia instead. If not, then you're welcome to contribute wry wit and creativity.
You're the one acting like an infant here. First of all if you wanted it to be Satire then you should have called it Jaws Satire wiki. Instead of Jaws wiki. I'm not the only person you pissed off here. There are lots in the comment section who came to be informed, not to be sassed by some middle aged old fart who clearly hated the movie.
LOL...I should have done what I did and that's what I did matey...maybe I should have called it "wiki for those that appreciate satire, rather than those that have no clue what satire is nor have an interest in it because it's possibly above their level of education". And as far as age and love of this movie, I'm going to presume you must be older than I if you think I hate this film. Someone older than I would likely be as senile as you let on.
Having said that, and based on your weak attempt at slander, I'm going to have to block ye as reasoning and logic are clearly not your cup of tea.
Fred-stine, I could not help but notice that many of the pages are either missing, seriously misinformative, or woefully incomplete. It's horrible. Also, seriously; the idea that these sharks are mutated? That wasn't ever specified, nor was it ever true. Also, there;'s no page on Matt Hooper and no images for him either. You really need to overhaul this wiki to state the facts of the films better. I saw in one of your posts that you said Jaws wiki was for mixing factoids with hypothetical fiction. That's not what wikis are about. If you really want this to be a good quality wiki, use the facts on the characters from the books and the films rather than fan-based theories and descriptions. I'm sorry, but it leaves so much terribly muddled and makes no sense. I get that you don'twant it to be wikipedia over again, but that's not a good call. I know that from past experience on other wikis. Do you understand?
I understand why you would block a page, what makes it difficult is that it's been since October since you've last edited, so it doesn't look good when pages that need to be edited can't be because the admin has blocked them and then abandons the wiki altogether, given no hope to future editors like me. It also makes certain rules redundant because you can't even be bothered to stick around to monitor things. It also stops any kind of progession following the rules of an admin/founder who isn't even here anymore. But maybe you have been just monitoring activity all this time? It's pointless in the end blocking that one page that you don't want particular additions done to it, because when you abandon it then that will inevitably happen all over, and you won't be there to undo anything.
The Amity Incident is a frightening series of horrific shark attacks occurring off the coast of Martha's Vineyard in the Massachusetts area. These true life incidents were later adapted for films and formed what is known more commonly as the JAWS film franchise.
As reported in town records, the town's Police Chief, an oceanographer, and a shark hunter were tasked with hunting down and killing a rogue great white shark which the oceanographer reported to have been in the neighborhood of 20-25 foot in length. Two years later, horror author Peter Benchley wrote Jaws, a horrifying memoir and recount of the terrible incident. And only a few months later, Universal Pictures produced a motion picture version of the book. The film starred Roy Scheider as Chief Brody, Robert Shaw as Bartholomew Quint, and Richard Dreyfuss as oceanographer Matt Hooper.
The book and movie (including the sequels Jaws 2, Jaws 3D, and Jaws: the Revenge) all allowed for a more distinct awareness of the event. Unfortunately, it also inspired a fear of the ocean like never before, and now, 37 years after the initial Amity incident, people are still afraid to go into the water
That's hogwash! It's a blatant lie! Benchley wrote the book inspired by the 1916 shark attacks. There was no "Amity Incident". What kind of self-respecting admin will post these lies?
Votesmall, While I appreciate your enthusiasm for this topic and your contributions in general I've had to waste a lot of time cleaning up and reverting your beligerent and overt modifications to articles on this wiki. I'm guessing that your activities in this area have been due in part to your lack of understanding as to what the purpose and tone of this wiki is. Its likely you simply haven't read the byline and description thourougly. So with that in mind and so you will be more readily able to understand the parameters by which creativity here is encouraged I'm going to copy and paste the following from the Wiki profile description for your review. Once you've read it and you still disagree with the parameters then you might want to try a more data driven wiki on Wikipedia.
"As the founder of the JAWS wiki I welcome fin fans to join the effort to make this the ultimate fan oriented JAWS wiki on the net.
Those placing vandalism will have their IP noted and temporarily blocked. Excessive vandalism or annoyances could result in permanent banning or being forwarded to Wikia, then tossed over the side. Please study the site and add content that is in line with the content already in place. Quality of writing is not as important as creativity. This is a FAN oriented site and while it is partially fact based it is also geared towards being fun and hypothetical rather than just another encyclopedic text book (i.e. Wikipedia). Nevertheless, expect your work to be edited excessively. This is what a Wiki is.
You can argue that it is fan fiction but there is no point. This is obnoxious behavior for any wiki to have. "hypothetical"? You have got to be kidding me.
Anybody who tries to correct such ridiculous behavior is called "hostile". I see how it is. Even though I am an admin on six or so wikis and have made thousands of contributions, I am the hostile one for trying to make this wiki look decent and remotely complete. I am already number 2 on this wiki leaderboard and I haven't even been here that long. My only wish on wikia is to strive for good wikis. Some of these articles are shamefully tiny and I get no thanks for helping.
Jaws is one of my favorite movies. I grew up with it. What makes you think a true fan of this movie will sit back and listen to people talk about Jaws like it actually happened? That is not fanfiction, that's just a lie. If this is supposed to be a fanfiction wiki, make it a fanfiction wiki. But this is the "Jaws" wiki, so I have contributed under apparently silly pretenses in assuming that this wiki was SUPPOSED TO BE LEGITIMATELY KNOWLEDGEABLE.
I am not complaining about my work being edited. You are blatantly reversing my edits and calling them hostile. That is ignoring the contributions of others and total hypocrisy. What kind of admin complains about "wasting" time working on edits made by others? If you want to block me for trying to make this wiki somewhat accurate and coherent, go ahead. I don't care. But I expected more professional behavior from the founder of this wiki. In all my years of editing wikia, I have had only two conflicts with wiki admins. One was a simple misunderstanding and has been fixed. The other is this one. Thanks for the warm welcome.
As I've said previously, your contrbutions are appreciated. However the hostility being referred to is your presumption in several comments you've left that what is being written in articles for this wikia is either nonsensical or inept. Wholesale editing articles and leaving beligerant comments as to why you edited something to suit your subjective interest can logically be percieved as hostile.
There is no question that this Wikia is unique. And that is stated in this Wikia's description. What helps make it unique is a creative mix of the alternative hypothetical with standard film history...by design. Think of this wikia like you might think of this site: www.theonion.com
Having seen the beligerent and unwelcome contributions to the standard JAWS article on wikipedia was one of the primary reasons this article was created here on Wikia. As a sort of innate antithisis.
So rather than duplicate what has and is already being done on wikipedia this wiki has a distinct purpose, and that is to offer a creative alternative for those that would like to read and be entertained by more than just dry retreaded film trivia. Nevertheless, everything and anything to do with the film(s) historical factoid including the relevant topic of real sharks and shark attacks are incorportated herein.
In closing, clearly you seem to have an issue with a wiki that does not adhere to plain old encyclopedic data. Some understand an appreciate what is being created here, and others don't.
What we have is a misunderstanding. Not a conflict. At least that's my impression. And as I've stated previously, this wikia might not be for you. Alternately, your continued contributions would be welcome if you think this particluar style of hypothetical and reality based writing/editing works for you.
Well, it doesn't work for me. I have already left this wiki. I have seen incredibly unprofessional behavior from you. This wiki is nothing but nonsense. It is not hostility, it is fact. I try to fix it and I get no type of understanding.
Once again, thanks for the warm welcome. But I have no place on a wiki whose admin is fine with it being undeveloped and blatantly inaccurate.
Again, as I've mentioned you may want to try the standardized JAWS wikipedia article for literal edit contributions if that's more in line with your interests. It's unfortunate that you aren't able to appreciate the style of content we adhere to and that we are not a typical Wikipedia oriented encyclopedic data base. Nevertheless, we wish you well and hope you can respect the creative parameters we employ here. Farewell and adieu...
Jaws by its very nature is a fictional account. In general we've added additional layers of fiction. So yes there is going to be a lot of fiction throuoghout this wiki. That's what makes it unique and why we have over 600 views per day and growing. Meanwhile, we welcome you to continue to contribute with a creative outlook in mind.
