Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Guild Wars 2 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 when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, consider the following:

  • As this is a noticeboard and not a talk page, please refrain from discussing.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages etc.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comments instead by adding a link to the discussion page.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made if 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. 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.

Creating a new request — vandals
  1. Edit the Vandal issues section.
  2. At the top of the list, use the ;{{user|IP address or username here}} template. Provide a short and neutral summary of the issue
Creating a new request — non-vandal cases (e.g. user issues, page protection/undeletion, etc.).
  1. Add a new section to the page using the "+" button at the top of the page.
  2. In the subject field, enter an appropriate title, without using links or templates.
  3. In the edit field, use the {{user|IP address or username here}} template to refer to users involved with the case. Provide a short and neutral summary of the issue.

As a sign of courtesy, also leave a message on the talk page of any involved user.

Vandal issues[edit]

Please don't report anonymous users here after only a single vandal/spam edit. There's no point to blocking an IP if they are already finished with whatever mischief they were doing.

How to change Username?[edit]

moved from Guild Wars 2 Wiki talk:Admin noticeboard

Hello, I found instructions that said to "ask on the admin noticeboard" if you need your username changed but I really could not find a place to do this. The instructions talk about reporting abuse and what not. This was the only way I could think to ask. How do I go about changing my username to Mistress Elemental? Thanks! --Mistesrian (talk) 18:53, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

The user account, "Mistress Elemental", was created in September 2014. If you created this account, could you please log in to that account and leave a comment here to show ownership? If you did not create this account, then you'll have to look for another name :(. G R E E N E R 19:26, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
That is my bad, I did not know I created this account. It must be tied to my main guild wars account or something. Is there a way to merge or replace the Mistesrian account with this one? --Mistress Elemental (talk) 20:15, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
No worries. I just attempted to merge your two accounts and encountered a bug. Feel free to continue to use "Mistress Elemental" until I hear back on what caused the error. G R E E N E R 20:50, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
I realize you may be watching this page for updates, and not necessarily your talk page. Could you please go to both of the accounts that you created and clear your watchlists for them? When you have, let me know, and I can attempt to merge your two accounts. Thanks! G R E E N E R 19:12, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
