Fractured Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Fractured Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Admin noticeboard is one way through which users can notify Administrators of issues needing administrative attention. While users are welcome to directly contact specific administrators (especially if they are seen to be active), posting here can be an easier and quicker way of ensuring that at least one admin will notice an issue and respond to it promptly. Remember to sign (using four tildes: ~~~~) when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, please consider the following:

  • This page is for reporting wiki issues. Please post discussions on the talk page.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here. Deletion requests should be made by adding {{delete|reason for deletion request}} to the top of the target page, which will then automatically mark the page as a candidate for deletion.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comment instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made once a resolution could not be reached between users.
  • For issues regarding the use of this wiki, please see our help center.

In case of vandalism, posting about it here is low priority. Revert it first, anyone can do so. If the vandal created a new page, tag it for deletion. Assume good faith and consider leaving a message on that user's talk page to explain the reason. Post here only if the user has made several disruptive edits and/or persists despite a warning. Always avoid a revert war with the vandal; it is far better to wait until an admin has a chance to intervene. If a user must be reported here, please use {{user}}, preferably as the topic subject/headline.

Current Issues[edit source]

Extension request[edit source]

Can we get the Loops extension enabled for this wiki? Kellewic (talk) 02:44, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

These two as well?

Loops and TemplateSandbox should be installed soon. I'm not sure I like the idea of installing an extension that permits anyone to add CSS to pages, though. What would this be necessary for? OOeyes (talk) 13:38, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

My intent was to use it to dynamically manipulate images within templates (size/shape - square to round - that sort of thing) Kellewic (talk) 23:30, 6 October 2018 (UTC) The CSS thing is more of a nice to have since I could actually edit the images locally to achieve the same effect, but would just be easier to do it dynamically via CSS, but I understand not wanting that in everyone's hands. One more request is to get ParserPower installed Kellewic (talk) 00:37, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

ParserPower is queued up for installation. I'd be comfortable installing Extension:Widgets and giving you the rights to edit them. (Or for that matter, you could use the claim button and become a wiki guardian. I'd approve it.) I would think writing a widget would work just as well for this. OOeyes (talk) 04:11, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, Widgets extension looks like it will work. Never used it so loaded it up on my own install to play with it - pretty simple. I like this idea. Thanks! Kellewic (talk) 16:38, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

Widgets is now queued up for installation. OOeyes (talk) 17:37, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

Can I also get Cargo and Scribunto installed please? Kellewic (talk) 13:26, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

They're in the queue. OOeyes (talk) 08:12, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
