Crashlands Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Crashlands 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.

Issue with filenames[edit source]

Hello,

A few months back I noticed that a lot of the images weren't uploaded. I was confused since BSS gave us all the files. I looked at the "Unused Files" page and noticed that every single one of the "missing" images were already uploaded. The problem is that they're not in title-case (e.g. Potted_parapod.png should be Potted_Parapod.png), so the wiki is not picking up on it. When I had noticed this, I started the process of reuploading the files, but stopped after a few dozen, as going through each individual one was way too tedious. At the time, I didn't think to post here, or contact the Admins at all, but I was reminded of this problem so I thought I would come back to mention this big problem is caused by a little issue that can easily be fixed.

I'm fluent in a few programming languages, so if there's anything that I can write to make any of the process easier, let me know!
