Gamepedia Help Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Gamepedia Help Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Admin noticeboard is one way through which users can notify administrators of issues needing administrative attention. While users are welcome to directly contact specific administrators (especially if they are seen to be active), posting here can be an easier and quicker way of ensuring that at least one admin will notice an issue and respond to it promptly. Remember to sign (using four tildes: ~~~~) when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, please consider the following:

  • This page is for reporting wiki issues. Please post discussions on the talk page.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here. Deletion requests should be made by adding {{delete|reason for deletion request}} to the top of the target page, which will then automatically mark the page as a candidate for deletion.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comment instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made once a resolution could not be reached between users.
  • For issues regarding the use of this wiki, please see our help center.

In case of vandalism, posting about it here is low priority. Revert it first, anyone can do so. If the vandal created a new page, tag it for deletion. Assume good faith and consider leaving a message on that user's talk page to explain the reason. Post here only if the user has made several disruptive edits and/or persists despite a warning. Always avoid a revert war with the vandal; it is far better to wait until an admin has a chance to intervene. If a user must be reported here, please use {{user}}, preferably as the topic subject/headline.

Game crashes, won't work for me. 15 Hours of changing settings and testing it out.[edit source]

It took me 3 weeks to get the money to buy this game, only for it not to work. I've spent 15 hours editing and testing, only to get 0 improvement. I don't know if it's possible to get a refund, but if it is it would be amazing. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 2:47, 12 August 2015 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

[edit source]

Hi there, Gamepedia!

I feel I have contributed a lot to The Escapists Wiki and feel that I could do mor with Sysop or Guardian, especially with the new release of The Escapists The Walking Dead. What are the requirements? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Sonico556 (talkcontribs) at 17:52, 16 October 2015 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

I passed your request on to Wagnike2 for action :), enjoy your new status! — Game widow (talk) 14:03, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

God-forsaken bot spam from the land of non-wikish stuff[edit source]

If you've seen Special:RecentChanges, you know what I mean >.> I would highly recommend banning the words "Number", "QuickBooks" or "Phone" from being in a title, because this is nonsense. -Xbony2, TriMaster (talk) 22:01, 18 February 2016 (UTC)

Anti-credit suggestion of doom[edit source]

Not be a wikipoint-butt, but Psunny2912 and Johnkayak should have their wikipoints taken away, since both were spambots that were blocked about a month ago; the scores give them credit they in no way deserve. -Xbony2, TriMaster (talk) 00:34, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Same with Sonam123, Robertsoni and Kdavid0116 after looking further into it. -Xbony2, TriMaster (talk) 21:11, 26 March 2016 (UTC)
OK, done — Game widow (talk) 18:34, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Abise Filter is defective[edit source]

I cannot add interwiki link. Too many characters in Cyrillic. — Ivan-r ru.Wiki User 14:57, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

What are you trying to add to the interwiki and which wiki are you adding it on? --Alianin TC 15:37, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

Another abuse filter problem[edit source]

I wanted to change the page Battle of Tol Barad to specify that in its current run, Summoning Stone does use its normal behaviour of using the actually paid cost, and thus creates 0-mana minions when a reduced-cost spell is played. However, the abuse filter thought that that was harmful and therefore disallowed, giving as its reason "New user adding link at end or in heading". This is incorrect for two reasons: First and foremost, I was not adding the link, I was only editing the text around the link, second, it was not at the end or in a heading, but in the middle of a normal paragraph. - 22:58, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Never mind, that was another wiki (I think). I wanted to delete my message, but I could not because deleting a section as a newbie is stopped by that same abuse filter. - 23:02, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

How do I change my email?[edit source]

So I linked my twitch having forgotten that it had my old email on it that I forgot my password to so I wanted to change my email to my new one but I can't figure out how, I even changed my twitch email but my gamepedia email is still the same. — ✪ SaiKo (talk) 20:18, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

If you haven't merged your account with your Twitch account, you can change it here: If you have merged your account and you changed it on Twitch, you need to log out and back in and it should update. --Alianin TC 00:56, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
I've logged out and back in on both gamepedia and twitch and my email is still on my old one for gamepedia. — ✪ SaiKo (talk) 01:49, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
Please submit a ticket including your username and new and old email address here and we can help you get this sorted out. --Alianin TC 01:53, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
