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}} 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]

Math extension request[edit source]

Could we get LaTeX math display enabled on the wiki? It would allow for prettier formulas. I think these are the instructions: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Math

Or maybe you need to ask Curse to install it?

Or do we even have any non-Curse admins?

This is being added and should be ready for later today. I'll update once it's ready to go. --Alianin (talk) 07:40, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
\sqrt{x} Works great, thanks! --Evil4Zerggin (talk) 17:47, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
Sorry I didn't get back to you, been a crazy day. Glad it's working for you! Let me know if you need anything else. --Alianin (talk) 22:54, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Math extension broken?[edit source]

The math extension seems to have broken recently. Previously generated equations still appear correctly, but new ones result in an error. Example: \sqrt{y} Could you take a look? Thanks! --Evil4Zerggin (talk) 21:15, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

I've reported this to the platform team to look into. I'll let you know when they have something. --Alianin (talk) 18:20, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
Should be good to go now! --Alianin (talk) 17:43, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! I notice that the page header layout has also been fixed. --Evil4Zerggin (talk) 16:35, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
Something still seems to be off... \sqrt{z} --Evil4Zerggin (talk) 16:44, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
I've reported this issue again. Sorry you're still having trouble with this. I'll let you know! --Alianin T •  C 17:38, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
Do we have any update on this? I've also updated some formulas and it broke the page, and the image could not be generated. :/
Any update on this? --Evil4Zerggin (talk) 16:49, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
We're waiting on getting a couple more packages installed so this renders correctly. I've poked our team to get this taken care of. --Alianin T •  C 16:52, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
Should be all set now! Let me know if you have any issues. --Alianin T •  C 19:04, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
We were having issues again with the math extension. The root cause of the issue should be fully resolved now, so you shouldn't see it break again. Sorry about the issues! --Alianin T •  C 19:48, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks for looking into this so persistently! --Evil4Zerggin (talk) 21:48, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

New Wiki background photo[edit source]

The current Wiki background photo includes the old custom cannons that have been removed from he game for many months (maybe even a year?) and I think it makes the Wiki look neglected/abandoned. From what I can gather, only admins can change the background photo.Lord Billtoe (talk) 01:03, 19 December 2016 (UTC)Lord Billtoe

I'd be happy to change out the wiki background image. Do you have a suggestion for a new image? --Alianin T •  C 23:01, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
What resolution and height to width ratio is best for a wiki background image?--Lord Billtoe (talk) 23:22, 26 December 2016 (UTC)Lord Billtoe
