Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Guild Wars 2 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 when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, consider the following:

  • As this is a noticeboard and not a talk page, please refrain from discussing.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages etc.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comments instead by adding a link to the discussion page.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made if 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. 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.

Creating a new request — vandals
  1. Edit the Vandal issues section.
  2. At the top of the list, use the ;{{user|IP address or username here}} template. Provide a short and neutral summary of the issue
Creating a new request — non-vandal cases (e.g. user issues, page protection/undeletion, etc.).
  1. Add a new section to the page using the "+" button at the top of the page.
  2. In the subject field, enter an appropriate title, without using links or templates.
  3. In the edit field, use the {{user|IP address or username here}} template to refer to users involved with the case. Provide a short and neutral summary of the issue.

As a sign of courtesy, also leave a message on the talk page of any involved user.

Vandal issues[edit]

Please don't report anonymous users here after only a single vandal/spam edit. There's no point to blocking an IP if they are already finished with whatever mischief they were doing.

Starting with the most recent vandals.

Help Needed[edit]

I accidentally made a double (triple?) redirect between mastery insight pages. I need my mess untangled. If it's possible to revert all move changes I made that would be best I think as I'm not sure how to fix it/recover the pages. I had good intentions I promise, just need a hand. Thanks. If you could peek into my history for the pages that would be immensely helpful as I can barely distinguish between the page names as it is.

I'm fixing it right now.--Relyk ~ talk < 05:56, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Many thanks. I'll be more careful. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Erebosio (talkcontribs) at 06:02, 3 November 2015‎ (UTC).

Account Creation Problem[edit] (talkcontribslogsblock log) I tried registering on the forums after making a change to the Blueprints Page and when I tried entering my info, the name I desired "Bloodh0und" was considered a spam account name. Just wanted to clarify that I'm not creating a spam account and don't mind choosing a different name.

Good news is that your account wasn't blocked. Bad news is that the zero in your name was flagged as something spambots often try to do. Bloodhound, without the zero, is available if you'd like to try that. G R E E N E R 00:59, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, it's all created and working now. Bloodhound (talk) 19:49, 14 November 2015 (UTC)Bloodhound
