I'm currently in the process of updating the wiki and I won't be able to complete my task unless I have access to some of the locked pages.
I'm here to ask your permission to grant me access to the locked pages. I assure you that I am not a trouble maker. I genuinely want to contribute to this wiki with the knowledge that I have gathered so far. As evidence of my honesty; just look at my contributions to this wiki so far.
I know that I am not the perfect/best/etc. wiki contributor but as far as I know of this place I am currently the only one here who is willing to spend time in building this wiki up.
Hey, I noticed some of the pages are differently formatted than others. Is that intentional or is it just some people vandalising the wiki? I'd love to help edit some of the pages (I mainly do grammatical/spelling errors and formatting), but I don't know what the pages are supposed to look like. Is there a sort of "model" page I can reference?
I made my own wiki, Undertale Wiki, but I have no idea how the main page should be, etc etc. Could you point me in the right direction? Or, something? I apologize for asking you this, when there's many other people I could ask, but you're the first thing that popped up in my mind when I needed help making the wiki.
Undertale is a fun game! I think making a wiki for it would be difficult, especially since it's changing so much. Learn some basic graphic design and take a look at some of the professional wikias. Check out Yume Nikki, Farmville, Harry Potter, etc. Read some of the wikia's own documentation on proper design, and then just sign up!
Well, fantasizing about anything won't lead to progress. Progress comes from actions, not words. I see you've already done a lot of for this wiki (something I'm sure many OFF fans are grateful for); thank you for that!
The intent of my original post was to see whether or not Levels was aware of the other OFF wiki communities, and to find out if the multiple wikis were deliberate. If it was, then there's no need for change. If it wasn't, then it might be good to consider contacting the other wikis, especially now while they're active. A merge was one idea, another is to organize the content so that the same information wouldn't be repeated in the other wikis. I guess the path we're currently taking is to finish up this wiki so people could have something to look at. Now, I'm just ranting haha.
Sorry Levels, if we're spamming up your inbox. I probably should have made a forum post.

I can't speak for the third wiki you speak of, but the OFF Wiki under the administration of Yumil Recian has a lot of good content. I'm not asking for a merge, but I don't want either to be considered "inferior" because both contain very different information. Likewise, neither of the wikis are "superior." It is true that Yumil's wiki experienced some vandalism, but that matter is already being taken care of, and I will strongly advise Yumil to ban the culprit.
That being said, there is plenty of canonical evidence present in Yumil's wiki, considering the large amount of external links (including links to where one can download OFF, as well as to Mortis Ghost's official blog) and direct quotes from the game. I agree that our site needs some cleaning up, but Yumil's wiki was the original OFF Wiki, and many contributors have put in time and effort to make sure the information is detailed and accurate. Any inaccurate information will be deleted.
