Star Trek Timelines:Admin noticeboard

From Star Trek Timelines 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 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 MediaWiki's help page

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.


For technical support regarding the wiki, please leave a message on Star Trek Timelines:Admin noticeboard with a description of the issue.

Images with slash "/" in the name not working


Image names can't be named with "/" in the name. Not sure how to fix. Head for Em/3/Green was named Em-3-Green_Head.png Dlefebvre1701 (talk) 14:43, 6 October 2020 (CDT)

There is no fix for this. Slashes result in a page being considered a subpage by Mediawiki. The only technical solution is to turn subpages off, but that effects other stuff, so it isnt a valid solution. Id strongly suggest using dashes '-' instead of slashes '/' in this case.

Rename a page


How do you rename a page? Adira Tal is now called EDF Adira. Dlefebvre1701 (talk) 13:19, 29 December 2020 (CST)

Never mind. I figured it out. Dlefebvre1701 (talk) 13:39, 29 December 2020 (CST)
