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.

Note that this is not a talk page and that the respective moderators of each section reserve the right to remove non-administrative comments without discussion.

Please place new requests at the bottom of the corresponding issues heading.

PvX:NPA still exists, unbelievably, and is there to keep the wiki a slightly pleasant place to edit. All Saint (Gringo) ever does on a consistent basis is violate this rule. Whether it's to overcompensate for his own personal inadequacies in real life or whatnot, it's irrelevant because no contributor, valuable or not, should have to be on the receiving end of or read his continuous assaults. Whatever smidgen of actual data he adds to PvX's builds section is heavily outweighed by his harassment of users. —ǥrɩɳsɧƴɖɩđđɭɘş Grinshpon blinky cake 18:39, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

grinch wants to play the NPA game, so [[6]] ban for jake please. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gringo (talk • contribs) (UTC). 16:49, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

oh ps, the policy page says repeated npa should be extended bans, and this is like the 10th time around. happy new year! The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gringo (talk • contribs) (UTC). 17:01, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
Provide more links and I'll look into it. Karate KJ for sig Jesus 19:46, 2 January 2010
i can't link to the vote that you changed, but there was NPA on there. [[7]], [[8]], [[9]], and a million other places. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gringo (talk • contribs) (UTC). 20:31, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
both of you are causing unnecessary drama, you can both take a couple of days off. When you come back I want you both to be civilised with each other, note that doesn't mean you have to like each other, but I don't want you constantly bitching at/to each other. ~ PheNaxKian talk 20:49, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Highlighted Content

What the fuck's the deal with that, anyway? šBenTbh› 05:43, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

it highlights there some more specific issue with it or were you just wondering what it was? :/ ~ PheNaxKian talk 12:04, January 3, 2010 (UTC)
It hasn't changed in like 6+ months. Lmao. šBenTbh› 00:22, January 4, 2010 (UTC)
Everyone should switch to the Monobook theme so I don't have "uh wtf" moments. ··· Danny So Cute 06:28, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
we can only change the default monoco style, we can't change the skin. In regards to the highlighted content I'll have a word with #wikia (that's IRC in case you were wondering) and see if they can inform me how to change it (if not I do have a back up plan). ~ PheNaxKian talk 11:45, January 4, 2010 (UTC)
I still vote we copypaste Monobook over the Monaco style and vice versa so that users don't have to see the god-awful obnoxious style that this site comes standard with, but that's just me. ··· Danny So Cute 15:51, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
some people like monaco. If they don't they're free to change it (assuming they're registered). Personally I prefer monobook like you, but I admit there are some features of monaco that are nice (such as this highlighted content stuff, should we get it working, which I'm working on now) ~ PheNaxKian talk 15:55, January 4, 2010 (UTC)
I just always felt my wikis should resemble something professional, not a MySpace, but that's just me. ;o ··· Danny So Cute 16:03, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

is that any better? I didn't notice any difference when I checked, but that could just be me. If not wait a few days, and if it's still the same let me know and I'll contact wikia. ~ PheNaxKian talk 16:41, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

Build-Specific Issues

Build-Specific refers to any issue pertaining to the removal of votes, usually resolved by a Build Master or Administrator. See resolved issues here.

If you wish to dispute another user's vote, it is advised to do so on the build's talk page. This section of the noticeboard is intended to notify Admins or Build Masters of issues that can be speedily resolved (e.g. factually incorrect votes) or issues in need of mediation. Avoid debating builds or votes here.

Note: If applicable, please identify specific votes to improve admin response time.
