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.

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

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.

Ambiguous skill description - Arcing Shot

The mouse over description on arcing shot claims that the arrow moves 150% slower, this is not the case, it moves 50% slower, and takes 150% normal time to reach its target, I hope that is the correct place to bring this to attention, if not could an admin tell me where i should put this, thank you. --marty 10000--

Take it up with Arenanet. They write the skill descriptions, not us :O ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 21:21, 1 March 2008 (EST)

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)

Categorization Suggestion

Two suggestions: 1) You might want to add Hero as a profession so users can see viable hero builds without having to wade through all of the ones that heros do not use adequately. 2) A List of builds by function might also be in order. Basically all of the builds fall into one category of character or another. Your character is a tank, nuker, spiker, healer, minion master, etc and when looking for a build user's frequently have this type of organization in mind. -- Sabardeyn 00:14, 23 February 2008 (EST)

As to suggestion one... we already have that... As for your second suggestion, that should be readily apparent without having to wade through too many builds. That said, feel free to start creating categories. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 00:21, 23 February 2008 (EST)

LOL - I'm too new to builds to really be an effective categorizer for the project. Let me explain it this way... When reading most Builds in PvXWiki I have to spend a minimum of 30 minutes figuring the build out. Particularly for those builds which presume that the potential user (me) is aware of game mechanics, synergy between skills, etc that come with experience. As for the hero listing, my bad. Noticed it is in PvE, but was looking for it below in Builds by Profession. -- Sabardeyn 15:20, 23 February 2008 (EST)

Any1 think we should have a catagory in the PvP section involving Zaishen? Or at least a PvP general. I Am Jebus 21:16, 26 February 2008 (EST)

Zaishen is PvE. --71.229 21:54, 26 February 2008 (EST)
Yeah, pretty much. If you want to make a Zaishen build, put it under PvP team and then talk about it being Zaishen. Tah-da. --GoD Sig3GuildofDeals 21:15, 27 February 2008 (EST)
Zaishen is a relatively insignificant part of the game. It doesn't last long, and the only reason people do it is for easy faction. There aren't many builds for it, and Zaishen guides are more appropriate than making a new category. --Scottie bow Scottie_theNerd (argue/criticise/complain) 19:00, 29 February 2008 (EST)

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.

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)

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)
That doesn't work properly though, it displays what rank you should be at but it doesn't supply the relevant information, what damage/healing etc. it does it still has the range in.PheNaxKian Phenaxkian christmas sig 13:49, 27 December 2007 (EST)
Perhaps we should also have a system where it shows how many attribute points there are left over, displayed next to the Attributes and Skills section of a build.

Build Template

Would it be possible to add the blank build template on to the toolbar instead of Styles and Formatting-> View Source->Copy->Pasting it? Would be helpful imo.--ViYsig5Victoryisyours (talk/RfA) 17:54, 26 December 2007 (EST)

Well, we have the Bold text on the toolbar, which all you have to do is put 3 's around the word. And since this is a build site, you might as well have the build template on the toolbar. ViYsig5Victoryisyours (talk/RfA) 20:11, 31 December 2007 (EST)
You mean the toolbar on the editor? Cuz that would actually be pretty awesome. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 02:57, 1 January 2008 (EST)

Someone hasn't clsoed PvXBig tags, had this problem before(see resolved issues and Team GvG or something like that), think an admin needs to do it (not sure how you edit it when it's like that....), but seen as the issues arised again, can i direct this more at GC or Hippo-could it be made possiable not to save a page unless all Pvxbig tags are closed to prevent this happening again?

You just need to add &action=edit to the URL bar, and make sure your preferences aren't set to show a preview on the first edit. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 16:04, 20 February 2008 (EST)

template.php Bug

The script to save the builds has a bug. Some build templates have a '+' in it, like Build:R/Mo_Magebane_Shot_Ranger. The problem with this is that the + is a url escape character for a ' ' space, so the script returns a file with a ' ' where a '+' should be. Fixing this is easy, just urlencode($template) before you write back the file. THC4k 07:22, 21 February 2008 (EST)

Just a thought, but we might want to make sure you can't insert a style sheet into any pages here. If I wanted to wreak havoc myself, I'd make a 5mil char style sheet and insert it into a few dozen pages at once on here. I mean, that's how they trash most servers nowadays when not wanting to go internal. I haven't tried anything with stylesheets, but we should really make sure that that wouldn't be possible.
