Boundless Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Boundless 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]

Access denied[edit source]

I have tried to create and edit some articles but unfortunately I get this:

"This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Global AF - New user adding link at end or in heading "

I am only trying to include in-wiki links and links to boundlesscrafting and the official forum.

Because we get a lot of spam, you have unfortunately been caught by the filters we have in place. Once you make 3 small edits (without external links) and save them, thereafter you should be able to add the links you want without issue. Sorry for the inconvenience. — Game widow ( talk ) 12:49, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

I understand why it's in place; it just wasn't clear if I had to wait a certain amount of time or make edits. Thank you for the help. NerArth (talk) 15:59, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

new on the page[edit source]

Just for your information - the Layout was changed to make it more responsive for all kinds of devices. Still working on the mobile site, but that seems a lot better now, too! Encredechine (talk) 10:45, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

Request for Extension Enablement[edit source]

Various pages are becoming slower to render and I'm finding that it's more busy-work than strictly necessary formatting each individual item page. It has come to my attention that performance can be improved and effort reduced if the Cargo, Page Forms, and Scribunto extensions were enabled. Would a sysop/manager/sourceror be able to set those up? -- Bregmatter (talk) 23:45, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Waiting for a refresh of the site and the extensions should be active! Please notify me, should you need MORE! Encredechine (talk) 08:30, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
