Ylands Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Ylands 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.

Current Issues[edit source]

Hi there,

I'm not sure this is the right place to post this but I'm hoping there's an admin who could add the ability for us to distinguish rows in a long table by making every other row in the table have a different background colour, or zebra striping.

I've found this MediaWiki article with the JavaScript snippet that can be added to the MediaWiki:Commons.css page which will allow for this function. I do not have the right permissions to alter this page, hence why I'm asking on here.

If there already is a way for us to add zebra striping to a table that I am unaware of then please let me know so I can continue adding content to the Ylands Wiki!

Many thanks, Handofthesly (talk) 09:51, 31 May 2017 (UTC)Hannah (handofthesly)

Thanks, No_half_measures (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Image Map Extension[edit source]

Hiya, I was wanting to add an interactive crafting tree image to the wiki so users can get a visual representation of the tech tree and click on each item on the image to be directed to the crafting page for each item. I've found the image map extension which seems to be what I'm after: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ImageMap This is a WIP of what I have in mind, each item can be clicked on https://ylands.gamepedia.com/File:Crafting_Tree.png Many thanks!
