Terraria Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Terraria 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. In most cases, you should add the delete tag, rather than replacing the entire page content with it, so that other users and administrators can more easily verify that the content was deletable.
  • 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.
  • For technical issues that admins can't handle, please see the Curse noticeboard.

In cases of vandalism, posting about it here should be a last resort. Revert it first, as 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.

Creating a new request — vandals
  1. Edit the Vandal reports section
  2. At the top of the list, use the {{vandal|IP address or username here}} template. Provide a short and neutral summary of the issue
Creating a new request — non-vandal cases (e.g. user issues, page protection/undeletion, etc.)
  1. Add a new section (+) to the page and enter an appropriate title (without using templates or links) in the subject field.
  2. In the edit field, enter a short and neutral summary of the issue. Use the {{user|ip address or username here}} template to refer to users involved with the case and provide links to important pages or edits.
  3. As a courtesy, also leave a message on the talk page of any involved user.

Vandal reports[edit]

Vandal Archives


Vandal (profiletalkcontribs (deleted) • logsblock logblock) Repeated vandalism of the Mushroom Biome page. Gamablaze (talk) 18:00, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Blocked 2 weeks. Equazcion (talk) 18:07, 20 Dec 2014 (UTC)

Vandal Bossness19 (profiletalkcontribs (deleted) • logsblock logblock) is probably an alt of that docterwho guy. They make the same kind of edits on the same pages. Also worth noting is the apparently snide comment the good Doctor made to that account before his block was finalized. You may want to consider a more severe variety of blocking. -- 16:37, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

I agree, blocked. Equazcion (talk) 16:42, 5 Nov 2014 (UTC)
I've extended their blocks to one year, and added User:JohnnyBoy76 to the mix, who is also either the same person or at least on the same mischief team (checkuser confirmed Johnny and Docter are in the same IP range). The extended duration is due to the subtlety of the edits, as they were trying to make edits that would stick because they could plausibly be true without being confirmable, which is more dangerous than blatant nonsense. Thanks for the report and suggestion. Equazcion (talk) 18:02, 5 Nov 2014 (UTC)

You may have noticed this but Vandal (profiletalkcontribs (deleted) • logsblock logblock) is a bit of a repeat offender, having been blocked a few weeks ago. I doubt they're going to become a worthwhile contributor anytime soon, either, so it may be worthwhile to increase the block period in this case.

Blocked 3 months. There's a bit of stigma around long-term blocks on IPs, even if they appear to be static, but we'll keep increasing if needed. Equazcion (talk) 23:51, 18 Nov 2014 (UTC)

Hi there and welcome :) Unfortunately I don't know enough about the mobile versions of Terraria to answer this. You're most like to get some answers at the official Terraria forum. There's a section for mobile technical support there: You'll just need to register and post a new thread. Good luck, I hope you can get your character back! Equazcion (talk) 15:24, 4 Dec 2014 (UTC)
