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: End of Week.

Osiris New Dawn Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Osiris: New Dawn 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]

Admins could you make registration mandatory to be able to change the wiki? That will just provide a step more needed, before someone decides to try editing without any experience and saves the other contributors a lot of trouble - PlayMoto - (talk) 20:57, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

We typically don't lock down wikis because we want to encourage people to edit, even not logged in users can make good edits. If there's a rash of vandalism, we can address it on a per page basis, like what was done on the main page. If someone isn't making a good edit and they're not an outright vandal/spam user, it's worthwhile to leave them a message and tell them how they could improve it. --Alianin (talk) 21:15, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Flourine is misspelled[edit source]

Flourine is misspelled. It should be spelled Fluorine. Can you make this correction please and thank you?

*I noticed this as well, but unfortunately, it's spelled incorrectly in the game. My idea was to name the page properly, then have the misspelled pages redirecting to them in case someone searches. Thoughts? - Seesharpist
*I didn't get a chance to verify it in game, but I mean technically this Wiki should be factually correct according to the game design. For all we know it was how they wanted it. IMO, I would say leave as Flourine and have redirects from Fluorine. We will need to change a lot of the site, but it shouldn't be to hard. Webtron18 (talk) 16:47, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
*No worries! It's actually already done :) Was a bit monotonous, but easy enough.Seesharpist (talk) 16:19, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
