What is the deal with all of the vandalized pages in the library? For many of the pages for characters and series the description is just a random paragraph out of Wikipedia. For example take a look at the pages for the characters from Squid girl.

At first I thought that this was just a one off thing but with a little bit of searching I found that this goes all through the Crunchyroll library.

I know that there are supposed to be library moderators, and changes to the pages require a library moderators approval, so either they aren't doing their jobs or they are the ones vandalizing the pages.

why do they need to be any more detailed to be honest lol?

I'm pretty sure its supposed to be just a very basic description, why do you need anything more? Its literally there to outline the basic point of the show/ characters not tell you their life stories.

I think he's more saying that they aren't even correct entries, but copy and paste of something not related. Such as:

/library/Sanae_Nagatsuki

I don't myself do anything with the libraries, so I don't know if what you are seeing are recent changes that were somehow changed without requiring approval, recent changes that were somehow approved, or something that slipped through ages ago. However, please do report any cases of such "vandalism" that you see. I'll alert one of the Library Moderators to this thread in case they don't see it.

I can't say 100% certain, but I believe what you're seeing are the devastating effects of an ancient relic from the old Cruncyroll days, where they did this automated process to fill the library articles with info without really quality checking it.


Only thing to do is to simply report, or correct yourself the pages you see that are horrendously wrong. Any attempt will to correct the pages will then be checked by a moderator, to make sure things are actually correct.


Thank you for caring about the library pages, warms my heart.

I'll do that. I've got OCPD and all I want is for everything to be perfect.

It was really weird, because it's not rude and not spam, it's just a copy/paste of really wrong data from wiki along with a link.
