Admin noticeboard
Article maintenance

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, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here. Deletion requests should be made by adding {{delete}} 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 comments instead.
  • 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. 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.

Creating a new request — vandals
  1. Edit the Vandal issues section.
  2. At the top of the list, use the {{vandal|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 and enter an appropriate title (without using templates or links) in the subject field.
  2. In the edit field, enter a short and neutral summary of the issue. Use the {{user|ip address or username here}} template to refer to users involved with the case and provide links to important pages or edits.
As a sign of courtesy, also leave a message on the talk page of any involved user.
New account requests
Users will be unable to create an account via the login page until administrators have approved their username.
  1. Edit the New username section.
  2. At the bottom of the section, add a new comment with your desired username and any desired capitalization (e.g. "User:Guild Wars", "User:Guild wars", "User:GuildWars", and "User:Guildwars" will be different accounts). If your desired username starts with a letter, it will be capitalized.
An administrator will get around to adding an exception for your chosen username within a few days.

Vandal issues[edit]

Starting with the most recent vandals.

Vandal (talkcontribs [deleted] • logsblock logabuse filter log)

Same vandal as before, under yet another IP, has done the exact same edits to all the pages that were being reverted and inverted and whatnot last night, + vandalised Ruine's user page. Might be a good time to protect those pages in question in addition to blocking this IP. Jeree95 (talk) 13:21, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
Done, and thanks. G R E E N E R 14:00, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Vandal (talkcontribs [deleted] • logsblock logabuse filter log) IP volunteered, just fulfilling a wish. ;) Steve1 (talk) 19:29, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Vandal (talkcontribs [deleted] • logsblock logabuse filter log)

Vandalised numerous pages, even Greener's page. TikkaLeFem (talk) 23:56, 24 June 2017 (UTC)
Take care of, thank you. G R E E N E R 01:15, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

New username[edit]

Users will have one month to create an account after their request is approved.

September 2017[edit]

Good evening, I would like to create an account with the following username : Diesli . Thank you for consideration. 21:23, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

Hey! You can create that account, now. Welcome! G R E E N E R 04:50, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Hello! I'd like to create an account with the name Klean Up Krewe. Thank you! 18:18, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

Hey! Sorry for running late in getting to this. I totally missed the notification. You can create that account, now! G R E E N E R 18:20, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
No worries, and thank you! Klean Up Krewe (talk) 04:57, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Hey hey hello! I've been lurking here for a while, and I'd like an account with the name "Short Gloves"

Also, how do I make a new page? I have tons of redirect pages I'd like to see? Thank you! --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 04:03, 26 September 2017‎ (UTC).

You can create that account now. As for new pages, one quick way is to create a red-link first, by typing the code [[Example page name]], but with your own text filling between the two sets of brackets. Alternatively you can just type in the name of a page you'd like to create into the URL, or into the search bar to see if it already exists.
If you're wanting to create a redirect, know that the wiki search bar is no longer case sensitive, so we do not need redirects for most casings. Otherwise, you can create a redirect by adding the code #redirect [[Page to redirect to]] to the page. More information can be found at GWW:REDIRECT. G R E E N E R 04:33, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for capturing this image. I've currently uploaded it to File:Ooze Pit simple route.jpg and added it to the infobox. G R E E N E R 17:35, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Norn Female Rit Armour[edit]

Hey again!

Just got new armour for my rit, dyed it white. Thought you might want the image.

Current Norn Female Rit Armour page >

My image >

(boots are dyed black though)

Also the theres a black set in there. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 04:19, 20 January 2017‎ (UTC).

Too bad about the boots! A consistent set of pictures would also be lovely to have ("One of these things in not like the other..."). One of the goals of those pages is to set a high contrast between sections which can or cannot be dyed. The green in the first set of images does just that. Having black be the colour will end up hiding information from the players, even when used in the last set of images. :(
Thank you for the offer of those images, though! G R E E N E R 20:16, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Remnant talk page in protected namespace[edit]

[[ArenaNet talk:List of personal GW ideas]] can be deleted as was its accompanying page. There is no other way for users to mark it for deletion. - Infinite - talk 14:12, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

Done. -Rainith (talk) 16:14, 9 August 2017 (UTC)
