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 46.101.239.210 (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 81.205.157.169 (talkcontribs [deleted] • logsblock logabuse filter log) IP volunteered, just fulfilling a wish. ;) Steve1 (talk) 19:29, 20 June 2016 (UTC)


New username[edit]

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

October 2016[edit]

I would like to create new account with the username "TheLastDuchess" (no quotes), please. Thank you very much! --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.106.18.91 (talk) at 17:52, 12 October 2016‎ (UTC).

It would appear that someone has already created an account by that name, sorry! If you would like, "The Last Duchess" with spaces between the words is available. G R E E N E R 22:37, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
It turns out I'm that someone... I must've gotten an account awhile back and didn't realize it. Thank you so much for your help! ~ TheLastDuchess

I would like to create new account with the username "Enshala.ixoyb" (no quotes), please. Thank you very much! --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 162.227.48.52 (talk) at 16:34, 28 October 2016‎ (UTC).

Sorry for the delay. You can create that account, now. G R E E N E R 02:49, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

November 2016[edit]

I would like to create new account with the username "Three Face" Thank You! --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 67.180.103.192 (talk) at 07:38, 22 November 2016‎ (UTC).

You can create that account now. Welcome to the wiki! G R E E N E R 18:50, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

I would like to create new account with the username "Ken Masters 255" (no quotes), please. Thank you very much! -- 31.39.164.38 12:27, 23 November 2016 (UTC).

The name is now open. You can create the account now. G R E E N E R 19:40, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

I would like to create a new account with the username MursaatHistorian23. By the way, you already approved Ken Masters 255, I think I just accidentally deleted the approval message when trying to edit to ask for my account, sorry.

Should be good to go. Also I fixed up the accidentally deleted message. - Tanetris (talk) 23:25, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Editing fun[edit]

I don't really need an account, but someone pls fix this page: https://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Warrior_armor I clicked on the wrong window while translating the page and wiki saved changes.... No idea how I was able to save in the first place. Tried undoing and saving back the original myself, neither worked. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 107.3.188.161 (talk) at 05:05, 5 December 2016‎ (UTC).

All fixed! No worries about it. G R E E N E R 05:23, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
Hi, would it be alright if you fixed the warrior link (https://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Warrior_armor) again, I can not believe I made the same mistake twice. This should no longer occur, if only because I've completed my translations. Thank you --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 107.3.188.161 (talk) at 09:51, 5 December 2016‎ (UTC).
Alright, this is the last time I fix this before I demand a pay raise from you! G R E E N E R 10:27, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
