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)

Account Merge[edit]

August 2015[edit]

Looking to merge user:Vincent E V A N with this current account and to have the redirects deleted. Specifically I want this to be my up-to-date name and for Vincent E V A N to be merged into it. Viperblossom (talk) 21:32, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Merged. I'm sure Greener'll handle any cleanup, Greener's good like that. - Tanetris (talk) 15:55, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
