I had a thought (oh o that's never a good sign...) would it be at all possiable to make it so that normal users can delete pages BUT they can only delete pages that have expired their 2 week trash period thing (basiclly been in trash longer than 2 weeks), this way it means the site can be better maintained and admins don't have to worry about doing that kind of grunt work so to speak.<span style="font-family: comic sans ms; font-size: 10pt">[[User:Phenaxkian|<font color="Purple">PheNaxKian</font>]]</span> ([[User talk:Phenaxkian|<font color="Red">T</font>]]/[[Special:Contributions/Phenaxkian|c]])[[Image:Tag_thumb.jpg|19px]] 22:55, 29 September 2007 (CEST)

Revision as of 21:27, October 9, 2007

The Admin noticeboard

There are a number of issues that can only be solved by an Administrator. The Admin noticeboard is one of the means through which users can contact Administrators in order to identify a problem that needs Administrative attention. Although editors are welcome to directly contact particular Administrators, posting on this page instead may be an easier way to let the entire Administrative group know of the issue (which may be particularly helpful since it increases the odds that at least one Administrator will see, and thus be able to respond to, the issue promptly).

There are only a limited number of things for which this page should be used. Many problems can be solved without Administrative intervention, and, thus, this page should be restricted to those issues that actually require an Administrator. Those are: blocking vandals, (un)deleting pages, (un)protecting pages, removing votes (either as per Real Vetting or because the build has been substantially edited), and mediation (only if the situation demands it).

Even in cases of vandalism, posting on this page needn't be the first step (and indeed should not be the first step). If you see vandalism, just go ahead and revert it, anyone has the power to do so. If it's a new article with no safe version to revert back to, tag it for deletion. In both cases you should leave a message in the talk page of that user to make him/her aware of why that kind of edit is unacceptable on PvXwiki. Only post here if that user persists in his/her actions, ignoring the warnings or if the content requires immediate Administrative attention (eg. if the material on the page is so offensive that should be immediately deleted).

(Be careful in case that user repeatedly insists on vandalizing, avoid a revert war; it's far better to temporarily leave the vandalized version of the page up until an admin has a chance to intervene.)

To create a new request: add an item to the bottom of the list below, providing a brief, neutral summary of the issue. As a sign of courtesy, also leave a message on the talk page of any other involved users so they are aware of this discussion. If you are alerting an admin of a vandal, use the {{IP}} template, with the first parameter being the vandal's IP or username. If you are requesting that vote(s) be removed, please use the {{Build}} template, with the first parameter being the build's name.

General Issues

General issues include (un)deleting pages, (un)protecting pages, banning vandals, and moderating serious disputes. This section may also be used for miscellaneous issues as well as Administrative announcements. See resolved issues here.

Licensing version

See this. Page is protected, so one of you guys needs to fix it. --Wizardboy777 23:48, 21 September 2007 (CEST)

I've been talking to Gcardinal, and we're unsure which is correct, and obviously, we can't fix it until we know which is the problem, so no fix, for the moment. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 00:04, 22 September 2007 (CEST)
I think we have to use version 2.0. We took over quite some content from Guild Wiki, and they use 2.0 with no note on the possibility of silent upgrades. So we have to put at least the pages which originated there under 2.0. Anyway, we should put up a consistent statement asap. – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 20:32, 3 October 2007 (CEST)

Build-Specific Issues

Build-Specific refers to any issue pertaining to the removal of votes. See resolved issues here.

W/E Freezie Triple Chop (talk · rate)

Skaid9090's vote needs inspection. Lord Belar 04:39, 5 October 2007 (CEST)

No. — Skakid9090 04:43, 5 October 2007 (CEST)
Elaborate. Lord Belar 04:44, 5 October 2007 (CEST)
I did on the rating page. — Skakid9090 04:45, 5 October 2007 (CEST)
You don't play PvE much, do you? --InternetLOL 04:55, 5 October 2007 (CEST)
Read your talk, Skakid. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 06:17, 5 October 2007 (CEST)
Is this resolved? — Rapta Rapta Icon1 (talk|contribs) 23:18, 9 October 2007 (CEST)

Team - TA Smite Spike (talk · rate)

Can you please take a look at Bob fregman's vote? It doesn't have very much reasoning behind it...PaintballerSig The Paintballer (T/C) 19:09, 6 October 2007 (CEST)

Bad builds deserve low ratings imo. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 19:16, 6 October 2007 (CEST)
This deserves a low vote, but it also deserves a decent reason why. Lord Belar 20:21, 6 October 2007 (CEST)
Reason: "It's not good". Why go into huge detail when the voter feels that every part of the build fails? That said, if any other admin feels I'm going about this the wrong way, I'll step down from this. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 23:05, 6 October 2007 (CEST)

Team - Quick Arrows (talk · rate)

Request to remove all votes. Monk was rewriten and the voting 0-0-0 is wrong. They are all based on Tycn's vote who states that Paragons would have a higer dmg output which is not the case. Kastore 15:42, 9 October 2007 (CEST)

General Coding Issues

Coding refers to any issue or bug that needs to be dealt with by a Server Administrator (Gcardinal or Hhhippo). See resolved issues here. PvXcode related issues have their own section below.

Rate Tab

This is directed at gcard or anyone who has coding experience. Is there anyway for you to be able to have the rate tab available while on the discussion tab? It's kinda annoying to go to the build tab again just to rate something after adding to the discussion. --Lost 05:43, 24 August 2007 (CEST)

I agree, it is a lil annoying... hardly priority though. Search system>this. --User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 05:58, 24 August 2007 (CEST)
I'm working on it, but it's difficult since the tab on the talk page has to trigger an action on another page. Be patient... – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 23:22, 27 September 2007 (CEST)

Recent Ratings

Fixed a bug that caused the vote timestamps to be wrong for readers outside GMT+2. The times are shown in the reader's local time now. Note that atm, only the last update (that is, submission, edit, rollback or restore) of each vote is shown in Recent Ratings. There are plans to improve on that.– HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 23:22, 27 September 2007 (CEST)

Div Frames

They don't work. Some examples of hide-able div frames are this and this. —ǥrɩɳsɧƿoɲ 16:15, 16 September 2007 (CEST)

What do you mean? Єяøהħ 16:57, 16 September 2007 (CEST)
Click the show/hide buttons. —ǥrɩɳsɧƿoɲ 16:59, 16 September 2007 (CEST)
Sorry, at frist I thought those were PvX links. I'm sitting here thinking "they work fine for me..." Єяøהħ 17:05, 16 September 2007 (CEST)
Will have a look. It's low priority though. – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 20:32, 3 October 2007 (CEST)

Watchlist bug

Not sure if this is a bug with MediaWiki or what, but I have the page Build:Me/N Well of Illusions on my watchlist, and even after I visit it several times it still thinks I haven't looked at it since its last update (its still in bold). Other pages act normally. This has happened in the past, but it goes away after a while. --Wizardboy777 00:50, 14 September 2007 (CEST)

Happens every once. I use the mark all as read function to bypass it. Still a bug tho Swiftslash \\ Impale (contributions *warrior guide) 16:56, 14 September 2007 (CEST)
Ditto. –Ichigo724Ichigo-signature 17:07, 14 September 2007 (CEST)
Have seen that, too. Seems to be a Mediawiki thing. I think it's something like the wiki believes a page is on the watchlist but the talk page is not, or vice versa. The one that is not on the watchlist will not trigger the 'read' status. A workaround is to unwatch and watch again. Make sure that both page and talk page are watched (that should usually be the case automatically). – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 04:06, 15 September 2007 (CEST)
See also here. – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 20:32, 3 October 2007 (CEST)

Checkuser links

I don't know if this is possible, but a Checkuser link next to people's names in Recent Changes and Ratings. Like Scarymonsterclan (Talk | contribs | Checkuser)... that would be nice, it's not to hard to do it now, but sounds like if it's possible it'd be an easy code. ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 22:34, 22 September 2007 (CEST)

Should be possible, but will take some work. I'm not sure I'd like to modify Recent Changes, since that's a core part of Media Wiki and changes will make it even more difficult to upgrade the wiki software. – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 20:32, 3 October 2007 (CEST)

Ratings

Timestamps on the ratings would be nice. Don't think it would be hard to implement, but adding them to all the old ratings might be tough. Not a big deal, but if possible, add it. --Wizardboy777 SigWizardboy777(T/C) 22:44, 27 September 2007 (CEST)

Stop reading my thoughts, I'm working on that ;-) – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 23:22, 27 September 2007 (CEST)
I has mad mind-reading skillz. :P --Wizardboy777 SigWizardboy777(T/C) 23:23, 27 September 2007 (CEST)

More ratings stuff

I see this in the recent ratings: '16:52 . . Team - Conflagrated Coalition; Rating: 2.45 (acceptable) . . E:2 U:2 I:5' It's rated a 2.45, but says 'acceptable'. I thought the lowest 'acceptable' score was 2.5 --Wizardboy777 SigWizardboy777(T/C) 23:22, 28 September 2007 (CEST)

That may be a result of an original discrepancy as to whether we wanted to round votes up or not. Not a major issue but one that I guess should probably be fixed. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 00:24, 29 September 2007 (CEST)
I'll have a look. – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 20:32, 3 October 2007 (CEST)

Yet more ratings stuff....

I was wondering (this may not be possiable at all jsut a thought though) would it be at all possiable to make a template or something where it automaticly updates the catagory it's in (e.g if something was at 4.49 in the good catagory and someone votted and it went to 4.5 or 4.51 to make it great, instead of having to manualy switch it it would automaticly do it.)PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 21:22, 29 September 2007 (CEST)

ENGLISH IZ GUD. --Wizardboy777 SigWizardboy777(T/C) 22:09, 2 October 2007 (CEST)
Dynamic templates. Not too hard to understand. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 00:25, 3 October 2007 (CEST)
Is on our major-things-to-do-list. – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 20:32, 3 October 2007 (CEST)
If you're gonna get into dynamic templating... if you put, say, a {{build-stub}} tag on a build, then move the build, the build still appears in Category:Build stubs under the old title, and you have to remove and then put the stub tag in again to get it into the right place. It would be nice if it updated itself. --Wizardboy777 SigWizardboy777(T/C) 04:08, 5 October 2007 (CEST)
That's what i mean-where the template automaticly updates and changes what catagorey it's in.PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 17:59, 5 October 2007 (CEST)

Recent ratings and rollbacks

It would be helpful for detecting violations of 1RV with votes if it was possible to see previous rollbacked/deleted/edited votes. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 05:02, 6 October 2007 (CEST)

User:Krowman/P&H Flagger

Click the link and I think you can understand what is going on that's weird. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 07:05, 7 October 2007 (CEST)

Um, the server doesn't seem to like the ampersand... -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{sysop}} 08:17, 7 October 2007 (CEST)
Wait, so how did you even make the page if the server seems to disreguard everything past (and including) the &? Like, how did you get to the page for the very first time? єяøהħ 00:44, 8 October 2007 (CEST)
It used to work fine. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 00:50, 8 October 2007 (CEST)

Template Codes

GW:EN skills are wrong, not your fault, but documenting it. ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 21:14, 20 September 2007 (CEST)

Deleting pages

I had a thought (oh o that's never a good sign...) would it be at all possiable to make it so that normal users can delete pages BUT they can only delete pages that have expired their 2 week trash period thing (basiclly been in trash longer than 2 weeks), this way it means the site can be better maintained and admins don't have to worry about doing that kind of grunt work so to speak.PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 22:55, 29 September 2007 (CEST)

Saving Template Codes

Now, when you try to download a template code, the default name is {art_name}.txt
I'm assuming art_name is a variable and stands for article name, but I think you need another bracket or two to get it to work right. --Wizardboy777 SigWizardboy777(T/C) 23:27, 9 October 2007 (CEST)
