UnderMine Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From UnderMine Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to 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 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.

Renaming articles in the singular

Hi! I propose renaming/moving all articles in the plural (e.g., Status Effects) to their singular form (e.g., Status Effect). This is so that it shortens the amount of code needed for linking when trying to refer to things. Consider [[Status Effects|status effect]] to [[Status Effect]]s. --SirMoogle (talk) 20:39, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, but Sobeitholydefender and I decided, that we don't want this, as its not necessary. The only thing you could do is create redirects from plural to singular. - Magiczocker (talk) 15:50, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
That's fine. So long as there are redirects I'm all good. --SirMoogle (🐥 • 💬 • 🌟) 17:24, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
With all due respect for our administration, I would like to sincerely express my personal disagreement with the decision not to make all pages singular. I am aware it would take a huge amount of work, but nevertheless, it is the wiki way. You don't see a page named "Meats" in the Wikipedia, but you see a page named "Meat", with links to other meats available, or a disambiguation page. Just my own view, and take to this, nothing personal. Thanks, and sorry! With kind regards! @DeletedUser41327560 (talk) 15:55, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
