Heroes of the Storm Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Heroes of the Storm 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]

Semantic MediaWiki message[edit source]

The following message pops up every time an edit window is opened:

This page supports semantic in-text annotations (e.g."World Heritage Site") to build structured and queryable content provided by Semantic MediaWiki. For a comprehensive description on how to use annotations or the #ask parser function, please have a look at the getting started, in-text annotation, or inline queries help page.

Unless this is of use to someone, I'd request for it to be removed. It generally gets a little annoying after the hundredth time, and it's been around for 3 months now. I had the same message/s popping up on Hearthstone Wiki, and Eyes was able to hide them. -- Taohinton (talk) 00:20, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Request for information[edit source]

There has been a user request for information on status effects like blind, stuns, stasis, unstoppable, etc with descriptions. --Alianin 17:18, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Request for a change[edit source]

Hey, I have done a couple of work here within the last weeks and I want to request two changes, I cannot do:

  1. Can we please remove Heroesnexus from the Frontpage and the Sidebar? The page is dead....
  2. Is it possible to add a template similar to WoWpedias Abilities: Hover above the Abilities with your mouse in a flat text and see the tooltip description? I would do it myself, but I dont know how.

Thank you very much! --LemonBaby (talk) 10:04, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

I tried some things.... but I give up...--LemonBaby (talk) 16:20, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Kael'thas file[edit source]

Hi. I was moving File:Kael'thas Cyberhawk 3.jpg to File:Kael'thas Cyberhawk Cyborghawk.jpg as per the new picture naming code. I have no idea what happened, but the file says it's missing now and I can't undo it. Thank you and sorry! --Esjael (talk) 3:33, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

I re-uploaded the file — it appeared to be corrupt. Also, when you move a file, UNCHECK the "Leave a redirect behind" checkbox and make sure you update the pages that linked to the image before. If you do not do this, it will create a maintenance nightmare. — Rmkane (talk) 11:18, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
