It says it's been removed because it's too long. I don't know why that should be, since it's still up on your channel, and 47 minutes absolutely isn't all that long for a YT video. Perhaps it's because this is the channel's first video?
I've just checked, and 15 min+ videos are restricted to verified accounts, and apparently verification must be done with a code sent via text or phone call, not email(!).
Sorry for bothering you, but you're the most active admin recently so i frequently ask you something.
By the way, read the Dragon article especially the gallery section, do we need that many images? it's fine, but our wiki turned into deviantart with many uncredited images, it's bugging me, just look at it, for example a picture of dragon with caption "cute dragon 2" "Brontolophoraptor what?" ", just why?
I don't know who did such a thing, but i'm sure that Cryptids Boy is one of them based on the recent wiki activity where he/she add more images like Kitsune, i assume that this guy aren't the only one that did this? what's your opinion
For now, I've put the dragon gallery into a collapsible box, for easier article navigation, but the captions do indeed need some editing. I do feel that perhaps pages like this should only have a few important, selected images - after all, there must be thousands of pictures of dragons out there.
I know Cryptids Boy frequently adds DeviantArt images to articles, especially the dragon page(s). Just looking at the article history, it looks like he's the only user who's been doing this recently.
What is the progress of articles about Cryptozoological Book if you're working on it?
I want to add Books on the top navigation of this wiki, the tv series are lonely up there. If you're finished (or not, whatever), can you list article within Books and Manuscripts that deserve being at the top navigation? but if you're not ready it's okay, or maybe i've mistaken and you're never working on article about books, sorry then.
I'd forgotten about it again, actually. I'd been intending to wait for my copy of Still In Search of Prehistoric Survivors to arrive before I wrote about it and its predecessor, but when it did arrive I was too distracted by actually reading and rereading it! I'll write up articles for In Search of Prehistoric Survivors and the Bibliothèque Heuvelmansienne shortly
okay thank you, i've done it, what do you think? tell me if there are another reliable books about cryptozoology that deserved to be at the top
By the way, List of proposed prehistoric survivors is an awesome article, somehow we have to put it at the navbar, i thought about creating sub-navigation below Media called "Cryptid Wiki" or "On this wiki", just asking, maybe i will discuss it on the forum
And thanks for complimenting the article, though it isn't finished yet. A navbar section for various longer pages that don't fit into the other categories might be useful. I've been thinking of writing up a dictionary of common cryptozoological terms.
Oddly enough, another user asked this just the other day. But the answer is no, we don't - it was considered late last year, apparently, but nothing ever came of it. There is a built-in wiki chat, though.

ah okay thanks, yeah I will see if we can make a youtube channel for the wiki
I'm moving this conversation here to avoid clogging up the other thread on my wall, which is unrelated. Please note that I cannot understand a word of Navajo, and I can't find translations for some of the words you're using.
I understand that you're not happy about the skinwalker (yee naaldlooshii) page, for religious reasons? I'm afraid that, as an encyclopedia, we cannot censor pages, and must keep 'accurate information up even if it offends people. Having said that, is there any information on the page that you specifically take issue with? I mean, flawed or inaccurate information. Ha’át’éego (apologies if that's the wrong word)?
I agree that the image is not the best. Do you know if THIS IMAGE really does show two yee naaldlooshii? If it does, I will move it to the top of the page. Please bear in mind that I know very little of this subject. My specialty within cryptozoology is flesh and blood animals.
By the way, "your kind" might have been killed, but not by "my kind". I'm an Englishman, and none of my family have ever set foot in America.
i am sorry yas hastiin doo shił bééhózin da that you were not born or even set foot into my kind lands and i quite understand the blood and flesh my self and if i were you and if you want others to know that is your coice and i am trying to help your pigskins from my people
Brady I did some looking into this. It appears that the Navajo language used by this user are nothing more than quotes from the Bible. I think this is not a real Navajo user and is just a racist impersonator of the tribe (troll).
Thanks Australopithecusman. I was already suspicious when I saw the other wikis he'd edited on (and the fact that some of the words were nonsensical, but I thought that was my dictionary's fault), but this proves it.
@The dude is weird, your "kind land" wouldn't happen to be Florida, would it? How about the Australian outback, mate?
I removed both Arctic and Man eaters: if it was decided to remove the "Dangerous" categories, then there doesn't seem to be much reason to keep Man eaters. But if I'm wrong, I've recorded the pages just in case.
Mount Kancing Dragon Snake

By the way, wikis can have a "category intersection" feature, but you have to send a request to FANDOM to have it activated. It lets you search for articles which are in two categories. So, for example, you could see all the "Carnivorous Aquatic-based Cryptids" on the wiki simply by searching for the categories "Carnivorous" + "Aquatic".
you have to clean up Browse , i have no idea what this category is about, but it looks like a default category that all wiki have. Fom what I can see, this category is for article that don't have clear categorization, so i don't think it should be deleted. For now you should remove article like pennsylvania white bigfoot, etc.
My other suggestion is creating article for list, like list of cryptid, list of jinn, etc.
Alright, how are you? And welcome to the wiki! I noticed you wrote on another user's talkpage that you were interested in actually searching for some cryptids in the U.S. in the future - which cryptids are you specifically interested in looking for, if you don't mind my asking?
Well since im in Ohio and the Hoop Snake looks like it can be real with many residents claiming to have seen them growing up. I would say Hoop Snake for now, then i will get enough money to search for others in the coming years
