The Forest Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From The Forest 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.
  • 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 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.

Please post new topics at the bottom of the page by clicking "add topic" above.

Current Issues[edit source]

More Links in the Pages menu[edit source]

It might make it easier to browse the wiki if the drop down menu on the side that lists Pages included Creatures, or listed Animals and Cannibals instead of just Animals. It might also be helpful for it to include Building and Crafting. I know they are an the main page, but I think it would be helpful to include it in the Pages drop down as well. (So people don't have to go to the main page every time they want to look through those). (Also, I didn't see anything that said 'Add topic'.) Thanks! --Avisia (talk) 04:03, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Apparently, they have all been added by now. :) -- Napoleon 9th (talk) 12:46, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Edit-protected[edit source]

Template:SurvivalGuide is now fully protected, and this prevents users from updating it. Can it be made semi-protected (editable by auto-confirmed users only)? Thanks. -- Napoleon 9th (talk) 12:46, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Edit protection changed to auto-confirmed users. Brantmeierz(talk) 04:03, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for letting us know about this page. There aren't any previous versions of the talk page. Was there a talk page before or did you just get notified of its creation? If there was in fact a previous page, maybe consult Game widow. For now, I have blanked the page. Again, thanks for letting us know about this. Stijndh (talk)
forcedminer again yeah i'm 100% sure because i remember adding two images of the camo armor one with the player staring downwards to see the leafy armor and one the player examining it........any chance when accounts got merged old version were removed? — Preceding unsigned comment added by EIRE MadHatter (talkcontribs) on 24 October 2016, at 13:02 (UTC)

Apparently, "16:26, 24 October 2016 Stijndh (talk | contribs) deleted page Talk:Stealth Armor (Vandalism: content was: "Предлагаем Вам возможность работы в интернете, выбирайте самост...", and the only contributor was "172.68.10.59" ". Can an admin check the revision history on that Talk page? That page was empty before the grief (aka vandalism), so no contribution was lost. ;-)
Secondly, EIRE MadHatter, are you sure you meant the screenshots were on the talk page and not in the article itself? -- Napoleon 9th (talk) 08:39, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
