Outward Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Outward 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.

Error in armor infobox template: lightning protection[edit source]

Hi admins

i hope this is the correct place to post this.

The template for item armor has an error affecting the display of lightning resistance. It is visible on the Tenebrous Armor page: https://outward.gamepedia.com/Tenebrous_Armor

I believe the error comes from here: https://outward.gamepedia.com/Template:Item_armor

When clicking "View Source" on that template page, it appears that there is an erroneous " % " sign in the section for Damage Resist. 4 elements contain the string }round0}, but ligntning conains }%round0}. I hope this is an easy fix. post this here because i assume normal users do not have edit permissions on templates.

Thanks -lordtyr85

Hey, thanks for the detailed report, fixed now. If you feel comfortable making a change like that yourself in the future, by all means go ahead, you can always revert your edit if it breaks something. As for where to post this kind of thing, this page is fine for an important issue like this, but you can also use the "Discussion" tab on the page or template in question.
