Star Wars: The Old Republic Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Star Wars: The Old Republic 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.

a spammer[edit | edit source]

User:DANE YOUSSEF's page is pure self-promotion by a cross-wiki spammer who has never contributed. Can it please be deleted? (I tried adding the delete tag but it wouldn't let me, saying the software wrongly thought I was doing harm.) 16:07, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Taken care of, albeit belatedly. Arirthos (talk) 04:28, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

French wiki translation[edit | edit source]

Hello there,

As a moderate contributor on Wikia, I found out that SWTOR migrated to Gamepedia.

Nevertheless, I'd like to contribute by translating pages in French and possibly enrolling a few enthusiasts with me, if that's alright with you.

Cheers, mate.

Hi Galtier, welcome to the wiki and we welcome your contributions as well as anyone else you might wish to rope into. If we get enough activity/translations we could even look at a branching out a full French version of the wiki! Feel free to find me on the Discord as well, I'm moderator 'Six' on there or you could ask Exiled as well about access to our #wiki channel. There aren't many of us active here, but we do what we can. Arirthos (talk) 04:28, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
