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]

Adding the Dutch language[edit source]

I love the game and like the looks of the wiki here.
I would like to set up the dutch wiki, therefor the language needs to be added to the main page.
Currently (23-5-2019) there are 6 pages with an /nl, I hope any admin member can make an dutch (nl) sub-domain! — Preceding unsigned comment added by VinceVsGaming (talkcontribs) at 17:00, 22 May 2019‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

In order to create a subdomain for another language, we need the front page and at least some of the pages linked from it to be translated, and we'd need ideally a community but at a minimum one person willing to commit to administrating that wiki, which is a bigger task than it may sound. We currently have none of these prerequisites met for Dutch.

I messed up on one of my translations[edit source]

Hey, I messed up with creating one of the translated pages and it created a wrongly named non working page, meaning there is no way to add a delete tag to it. all the links of the broken page link to https://nl/Top_section, which of course does not work. Joerkig (talk) 08:31, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Establishment of rules for stale translation projects[edit source]

Practically all wiki translation projects (except those on separate domains and /zh which has recent activity and is being updated) are unmaintained with barely any activity. Some pages still have information from even pre-Update 1, which means many of them provide flat out inaccurate or misleading information.

I feel like some rules for stale translations should be set up so that unmaintained and/or bad translations are removed from the wiki. --Ondar111 (talk) 18:38, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Stage 1) Call for new maintainers with period of X weeks before proceeding to next stage if no suitable maintainers can be found.
Stage 2) Announce grace period of Y weeks for deletion.
Stage 3) If possible, lock content against edits then archive content for Z days before deletion.
Stage 4) Delete stale content

p.s. "stale" should be strongly-defined.
