Starbound Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Starbound 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, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here. Deletion requests should be made by adding {{delete}} 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 comments instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made if a resolution could not be reached between users.

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.

Current issues

We need someone to make pages for A Floran Journey Begins, A Floran Introduction, and a Floran's Goal like we have for the Axolotl so I can get in there and edit them with all my Floran stuff. As I come across Floran journal stuff I'll get it uploaded. :) ~Somadrop

This doesn't really seem to be an admin issue, unless you can't create the pages yourself. There are red links in Starbound Codex that you can start on. Tek022 (talk) 20:24, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

The Russian version of Starbound Wiki[edit source]

In Russia, the game is gaining in popularity, why not create a Russian version of the wiki?

I am willing to write articles in Russian. Example - Starbound Новости

Lil' spambots[edit source]

These IPs have been posting spam: (on the user pages of admins no less!) 46.44.47.71, 62.140.253.23, and 178.32.26.216. -Signed, SpeedyAstro. (talk to me) 20:46, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

I reverted all the edits, and protected some more pages (including user pages/talk pages, including yours and mine), in an attempt to ward off the vandalism.--LaDestitute (talk) 00:45, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

Data Dumps[edit source]

It seems like the data dump is outdated. I can't find "standingturret", sky rails, or anything on saplings. --Technius (talk) 19:45, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi, sorry for the slow response. We're planning on another data dump soon. We've been out for the holidays :-) CrsBenjamin (talk) 23:02, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
Update, a data dump for Angry Koala is underway! CrsBenjamin (talk) 22:54, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Alright, thanks for your hard work! --Technius (talk) 03:54, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Persistent User[edit source]

There has been an anonymous user aggressively adding opinions and unrelated content to Plutonium Ore. I have added an HTML comment that says not to do that, but he or she still persists. Can someone either lock the page from anonymous users or temporarily prevent that user from editing? --Technius (talk) 02:47, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Content Verification[edit source]

A page with odd information that may need to be verified as it could worsen some individuals' opinions of the game has been added (http://starbound.gamepedia.com/Moneybags_Cane)

Thanks, I went ahead and took care of that. CrsBenjamin (talk)

Vandal[edit source]

User:Nipplefingers12355‎'s edits have been spam, and at least one contained potentially malicious coding. May someone please do something? DifferentOctave (talk) 22:08, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Sure thing! Blocked for 3 months. CrsBenjamin (talk) 00:15, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
I almost forgot! Thanks for undoing the edits, if you're interested in becoming the Wiki Guardian for Starbound Wiki, use the "Claim this Wiki!" button. CrsBenjamin (talk) 00:20, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Why does this wiki exist anymore?[edit source]

I am Mackinz of Starbound's reddit and official forums. I have responded to a number of threads and posts asking for clarification on issues that ultimately stemmed from this gamepedia wiki and the Starbound wikia. Why? Because both of these websites are host to drastically outdated information that will likely never be fixed due to the sheer volume of it. The official wiki, Starbounder, does not have nearly as many issues because it is updated far more often and far faster. The sheer volume of updates to Starbounder as opposed to this wiki is incomparable.

Please remove this gamepedia. Entirely. It clogs up Google search results and leads to unnecessary confusion about Starbound. - Mackinz
