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.

Trolling + Comment edit

He was really just trying to make you look better :p ---Chaos- (moo!) -- 17:27, August 2, 2010 (UTC)
^ i have no wish to see you humiliate yourself ocirne--Oskar 17:30, August 2, 2010 (UTC)
Yes you do, stop trolling random ppls pages when you dont even know the dude Ocirne23 17:42, August 2, 2010 (UTC)
Why would he not troll someone just because he doesn't know them? Just throwing that one out there...
In any case, my answer is simple Ocrine, Steamy removed your comment because having it left there would mean further trolling. Next time, just don't feed the trolls, ignore them, (this applies to this whole situation) or if you feel something really needs to be done, contact an admin (either e-mail us or MSN, every admin has those details here (at the bottom)) and we can deal with it.
I've noticed you (Ocrine) and Steamy (Oskar) have issues with each other. I don't know why that is but I'll say this "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything". I suggest you both avoid posting where the other is involved, and if you have to, avoid getting into conflict with each other =/. ~ PheNaxKian talk 18:34, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

[[2]] Those three are using my talk page for own purpose and completely ignore me. Please do something about it. Shadow Form Slayer Shadow Form~ Slayer 15:57, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

Also include: User:Minion and User:Oskar. It is one gang so it seems. Shadow Form Slayer Shadow Form~ Slayer 16:00, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
Unfortunately for you, people are not required to address you on your talk page. This is not a gang of people trying to troll you, this is someone talking to you in a public venue (Pirate), followed by other people commenting on his public statements. There is no breach of policy here. Misery 16:04, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
Problem is, why here, this is something that wasn't directed to me, belongs in someones sandbox, and shouldn't be ignored to by the user himself. Shadow Form Slayer Shadow Form~ Slayer 16:06, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
It was originally directed at you. You aren't interested, so your options are to ignore it or ask Pirate to move it to his own user space. He isn't really obligated to do that, but he is being a bit of an asshole if he doesn't and I have been known to ban people just for being assholes. Any further questions, feel free to hit me up on my talk page, but it should not be discussed further here. Misery 16:09, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
You may delete. There is one thing I missed, how I see it was directed. The thing was that I was the only one in this shithole thinking about it XD. I am deeply sorry. Shadow Form Slayer Shadow Form~ Slayer 16:12, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

Build-Specific Issues

Build-Specific refers to any issue pertaining to the removal of votes, usually resolved by an 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 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.

Team - UW DLway (talk · rate)

May need a vote wipe since the build has been changed due mindblade update. Juze JuzeAvatar 10:51, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

After looking through your changes, I'm having a hard time seeing where the build has fundamentally changed to the point that it warrants a vote wipe. Maybe expound a little and I'll take another look. Karate KJ for sig Jesus 13:04, 13 July 2010

Team - Kathandrax Runners (talk · rate)

A whole new build, wipe votes, and have it testing again. —Forget 07:12, July 15, 2010 (UTC)

I'd like to see a discussion of the changes prior to votewiping the build. Let people weigh in on what was changed and come to a decision as a community. Karate Jesus

Any/N Cho's Farmer (talk · rate)

TahiriVeila's vote. It's not really that pointless to farm the area when you get unid golds anyway that sell for 700g each. And I see many people selling old-school items everyday. Also, effectiveness 2 is just stupid when it works well. Universality is also downrated when everything is optimized for every profession. Juze JuzeAvatar 10:42, July 21, 2010 (UTC)

Team - Deep Physway (talk · rate)

Votes on physway deep again. Meh. This build is being attack so much maybe it would be better off on guru. 'Steamy Igloo: you don't pug the deep. this is dumb.' 'Xtreme1ne: After trying it I find that even though it works it reall lacks compared to an organized team with synergy. Infuse Bonder is good but not here. Deep can't be puggable and effective. 'TahiriVeila: Physways in general suck. They're a slow an ineffcient method of clearing an area. The deep is never pugged so there's no point in storing a build designed solely for pugs.' 'Daññy:you don't pug the deep. this is dumb.' Honestly, whats the point of posting builds on PvX when admins change votes to rage at other people, I had to revert my vote, twice. Zodiac Meteor 04:41, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

Because we only remove obvious troll/incoorect votes (note that has to be very objective. If it says "it needs skill X to be better" but it already has skill X, we can remove that. However if it says "Does a good/bad job. The build(s) are good/bad and it does things in a quick/slow manner." That's not really something we can outright remove because that's more opinionated).
The point is, if you think some votes are wrong, comment on the builds talk page saying "Hey Bob! Your vote is wrong for XYZ reasons" and wait for a resoponse, or if a few days have passed and there's no response, contact them on their talk page and wait for a response there. You and the voter should try and sort out what's going wrong, someone clearly has reason to belive it is what it is, so you need to convince them of what it's really like (or they may even show you that you've missed something rather important and that it might have been you that was wrong).
tl;dr version: post on the AN (about build issues) as an absolute last resort. Also, stop writing large posts in this section, it's not a discussion page =/ ~ PheNaxKian talk 09:25, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

Team - UW Physway (talk · rate)

"certainly not an effective way of doing the UW, just an easy one, relies heavily on the skill level of the bonders." - Not effective? When it's been shown to have completed UW with Dhuum even in under an hour without a single dedicated tank. Also, every balanced team relies on their backline, when tanks are not present. This vote needs removing if they cannot change their reasoning.MinionMinion sig k bish 19:40, July 30, 2010 (UTC)
