TESO Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From TESO 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 (using four tildes: ~~~~) when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, please consider the following:

  • This page is for reporting wiki issues. Please post discussions on the talk page.
  • 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|reason for deletion request}} 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 comment instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made once 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. If a user must be reported here, please use {{user}}, preferably as the topic subject/headline.

Current Issues[edit source]

I have a "bad" user name[edit source]

My curse.com User name was "Claret_", note the terminal underscore. Its use caused problems on this wiki, some part of the system removing the underscore, other parts not doing so. As an example, I could not see any of my contributions. I did leave it a while in case it was a caching problem. curse.com has allowed me to change my username with them, and I would be grateful if I could to so here. Unfortunately,all my attempts to do so error out. I have cleared my browser caches and used another browser. Could an admin please get in touch with me by email at my address I registered with. For obvious reasons, I do not want to publicly give my proposed name until the problem is fixed. Thanks.

You could email me at [email protected] or send in your new name to [email protected] (my team's email) and we'll try to sort it out — Game widow (talk) 19:02, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
