Barotrauma Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Barotrauma 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.

Can't upload File:Red_Wire.png[edit source]

Upon uploading new image Red_Wire.png, a message is displayed saying the file of the same name has been previously uploaded and subsequently deleted. Therefore, I cannot upload the file with that name and I don't want to change its name to bypass this since Red Wire is the correct in-game term. Searching File:Red_Wire.png also yields no result.

I kindly ask for someone with administrative access to help fix this issue or give advice and provide explanation if this was intentional or not.

I don't know why you can't upload over it even if it was deleted, as it isn't protected or anything. I've restored the last revision so just upload yours as the new version.

Also, to get a quicker response ask in the #baro-wiki channel of the UTG Discord. --BlueTheKing (talk) 13:41, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
