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. (talkcontribslogsblock log)
Vandalizing the human female light gallery page. 17:56, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
Left a message on their talk page. Sorry for doing a rollback on your proper edit. G R E E N E R 18:37, 20 December 2018 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)
Ongoing vandalism along with other IPs in Recent changes. --Cali (talk) 04:18, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Can you please do something about that vandal that keeps editing my personal page? Thanks in advance. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 04:23, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Firstly, thank you to both of you for being on top of the vandalism. Secondly, the person that was hopping through some open IPs appears to have tired themselves out. If they become a problem again, we can address the situation with some of our tools. Thirdly, it appears the particular IP address listed above has been a problem for quite some time according to the abuse logs, so I'll give that IP a longer time-out.

Yeah, seems he/she has retired for the moment, thanks. Could you, perhaps, remove the edits he/she did, though? They are pretty nasty. Again, thanks in advance. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 05:05, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
I've protected both your pages for the time being. If it's the same vandal from yesterday, they're angry at being banned from the game, so they might not quit for a bit, sadly. Just keep an eye out and revert as you can. Also thank you for noticing. <3 - Doodleplex 13:30, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for protecting the page, and could you remove the edits they posted? Anyone can read them in the History. Thanks. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 16:07, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Done. —Ventriloquist 16:26, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks so very much. Inculpatus cedo (talk) 16:34, 12 December 2018 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Got it, and Alex added an abusefilter for future cases. Thanks! - Felix Omni 18:59, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Blocked thanks. New abuseFilter rule set up too "Anonymous user creating blank page with suspiciously short title". (link only for other admins Special:AbuseFilter/34) -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:00, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
