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.

E/Rt SH Splinter Hero (talk · rate)

Eloc's vote and Goldenstar's vote. IMHO the existence of Dual Attunement doesn't count as a reason not to give a 5 in effectiveness. Especially when used by a Hero with RI. Shogunshen Holidaysig Shen has cookies 09:29, 22 December 2007 (EST)

Goldenstar's vote is valid IMO, since he's just stating that he feels it's inferior to Dual attunment, and the overall score is still good. Eloc has no reason, as per usual, and his wording suggests he is probably misunderstanding the voting system, again, as per usual.Bob fregman 11:48, 22 December 2007 (EST)
I see this build as one of those that need substantial evidence for one not to rate great. And a Fire ele hero using Dual Attunement when other options exist does not suffice even as a rationale. Shogunshen Holidaysig Shen has cookies 14:51, 22 December 2007 (EST)
I see your point, and agree it's a great build. Seeing how goldens vote wasnt that bad however, i wouldnt remove it if i was an admin, but i do see where you're comming from.Bob fregman 15:09, 22 December 2007 (EST)
Actually, MB on a Hero ele is pretty bad. But that's not to say Dual Attunement preforms better. So maybe there was some legit-ness in Golden's vote. I withdraw my argument. Shogunshen Holidaysig Shen has cookies 11:12, 23 December 2007 (EST)

So Eloc changed his rationale to a more favorable one, but refused to change the actual rating. Shogunshen Holidaysig Shen has cookies 15:59, 23 December 2007 (EST)

Caspian for suggesting spirit rift as a variant. Shogunshen Holidaysig Shen has cookies 09:43, 25 December 2007 (EST)

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.

Recent changes RSS and atom feeds

Don't seem to work. [3] [4]. Both of them tell me This feed contains code errors. --Wizardboy777 SigWizardboy777(T/C) 00:45, 21 October 2007 (CEST)

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)
There was a solution to this which poke used in his GWWiki tools on gww. I'll point you to it when I have the time too search for it. -- (gem / talk) 00:59, 7 November 2007 (CET)

Rating Page protection

Can we get a way to protect a discussion page? It would be nice when a dispute like the Toucher happens... lock it so that votes can't be removed. ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 20:14, 30 October 2007 (CET)

Just to add on to Frvwfr2's comment: in that situation, it should lock the vote page in such a way that votes cannot be removed nor can new votes be added. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 03:44, 1 November 2007 (CET)
That too. ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 01:31, 4 November 2007 (CET)


Would it be possible to auto-tag Stubs and Trial builds that have been unchanged for 2 weeks, or even automatically enter them into this category? — Rapta Rapta Icon1 (talk|contribs) 03:29, 6 November 2007 (CET)

I think this is still being worked on, its not that simple lol. --Peter 10:24, 29 November 2007 (CET)

Build Master Implementation

So, as per general consensus, we're planning on doing a trial run to test out the impact of BMs on PvX. From everything I've been told, it shouldn't be terribly hard to add the code necessary to create a BM category, but, it does have to be done.

PvXcode Issues

Coding issues related to PvXcode. See also PvXwiki talk:PvXcode. Resolved issues are moved here.

Seed of Life

Seed of life doesn't seem to be effected by @xx. see here SoL is set @7 (at rank 7 as indicated in the note section) this should make it last 4 seconds, however it still says it lasts 1...5 seconds. PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 23:15, 21 November 2007 (CET)

That's true of all title-track skills I believe. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 23:54, 21 November 2007 (CET)
Not all-i think on the main page there's something down near the bottom about it and it has something to do with the asura title track where @xx works.PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 23:07, 22 November 2007 (CET)

Cool idea i think

Could we maybe get a bar sayin like Crit rate and DPS on weapon based builds? like for a warr have Crit rate based on wep mastery, and a DPS based on wep attribute. Mehbe not worth it, but useful nonetheless. ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 02:22, 10 December 2007 (CET)

Would it be like base DPS? I dunno how useful that might be in some builds. Shogunshen Sig Shen(contribs) 02:38, 10 December 2007 (CET)
True... Maybe just crit hit chance then, but that has negligible use except for on Sins, but then they use a lot of crit increasing skills too. Maybe just forget it. ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 02:42, 10 December 2007 (CET)
I think that would be quite kool, but then you have to think of how to get it only on rangers/warriors/ass. etc. and not jsut casters with a wand -.-. also on the idea of adding things-equipment template code(s) maybe? would mean we don't have to just list it....i think (would have to for PvE builds i guess....)PheNaxKian (T/c)Tag thumb 21:16, 11 December 2007 (CET)

Numerous Shouts (and etc) on Images

Some shouts have issues and usually end up with a red link. I usually try it with quotes, without, etc, but nothing works. This on occurs when posting the image directly or more so when using a mini skill bar. Here are some examples:

"You Will Die!" Optional Optional Optional Optional Optional Optional Optional

Never Rampage Alone Optional Optional Optional Optional Optional Optional Optional

There's more, I'm kinda just too lazy to scour the depths of PvXwiki to find them. --GoD Holiday Sig 2GuildofMoses 22:38, 17 December 2007 (CET)

PvE Attributes Counter

It would be nice. Basically the ability to put the PvE rank into the attributes and let it calculate how the skill works. Just my opinion IMO. --GoD Holiday Sig 2GuildofMoses 10:16, 24 December 2007 (EST)

[Skill@1...12], if ever the need arose. One can also click the actual skill. Though it'd be pointless to have a set attribute for such a variable attribute. Should a minimum value be prudent, simply note so. Shogunshen Holidaysig Shen has cookies 10:22, 24 December 2007 (EST)

Serveral bugs has been fixed, so a nice clean up is needed. gcardinal 03:10, 21 December 2007 (EST)
