We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

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)

I have added them :). --LemonBaby (talk) 10:04, 3 March 2017 (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)

Mechanics[edit source]

Hey, can an admin please change the following things on the front page "Mechanics":

  1. Change forts to structures
  2. Add Brawls, Mounts, Cosmetic Items
  3. Remove Talents. Its a dead end page.
  4. Remove Watchtowers
  5. Mabe change the Name into "content"?

Thanks! And maybe add them to the navigation bar on the left side...? --LemonBaby (talk) 08:36, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

please?--LemonBaby (talk) 18:44, 24 April 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)

Auriel Changes[edit source]

Her passive needs to be updated to 50% of damage done, and her level 7 talent bursting light needs to be removed. The numbers also need to be changed for her Q and E initial damage and center/stun damage. Thanks!

Actually, Just update all of the patch note changes for 27.2 — 24.125.200.18 (talk)‎ 22:28, 29 August 2017‎ (UTC)

Thanks for letting us know, I updated the values. If you want, next time, you can visit the Auriel data page (Data:Auriel) and update the values there.
Also, don't forget to add a signature (~~~~) to your comments, so that we can get back to you easily. :) — Thanks, Rmkane (talk) 00:18, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

Interwiki Data[edit source]

Could someone with admin rights update the Interwiki data table to include the Overwatch Wiki and the Starcraft Wiki? It would make linking to these wikis a lot easier. Wowpedia and the Diablo Wiki already have interwiki data, so it's only fair that the other 2 franchises do as well. Besides, if even the Seattle Wiki can have a place on the interwiki table, I don't see why the Starcraft and Overwatch Wikis can't. — MetricTrout (talk) 00:25, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for adding the Overwatch Wiki! Could you add the Starcraft Wikia (Gamepedia doesn't have its own Starcraft Wiki) to the Interwiki table as well? Quite a few pages on this wiki use Template:Sc and it would make using that template a lot more intuitive, without having to add all those underscores. There are already a few other Wikia links in the interwiki table (including, as mentioned above, the Seattle Wiki), so it shouldn't be too technically difficult. — MetricTrout (talk) 23:09, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

Kel'Thuzad hero tile[edit source]

Could someone add Kel'Thuzad to the hero list on the landing page (Heroes of the Storm Wiki)? The page-to-be-edited is here: Heroes of the Storm Wiki/Heroes.

Just add {{Mainpage-Hero tile|Kel'Thuzad}} after Kael'thas. — Thanks, Rmkane (talk) 10:51, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
