The Admin noticeboard

There are a number of issues that can only be solved by an Administrator. The Admin noticeboard is one of the means through which users can contact Administrators in order to identify a problem that needs Administrative attention. Although editors are welcome to directly contact particular Administrators, posting on this page instead may be an easier way to let the entire Administrative group know of the issue (which may be particularly helpful since it increases the odds that at least one Administrator will see, and thus be able to respond to, the issue promptly).

There are only a limited number of things for which this page should be used. Many problems can be solved without Administrative intervention, and, thus, this page should be restricted to those issues that actually require an Administrator. Those are: blocking vandals, (un)deleting pages, (un)protecting pages, removing votes (either as per Real Vetting or because the build has been substantially edited), and mediation (only if the situation demands it).

Even in cases of vandalism, posting on this page needn't be the first step (and indeed should not be the first step). If you see vandalism, just go ahead and revert it, anyone has the power to do so. If it's a new article with no safe version to revert back to, tag it for deletion. In both cases you should leave a message in the talk page of that user to make him/her aware of why that kind of edit is unacceptable on PvXwiki. Only post here if that user persists in his/her actions, ignoring the warnings or if the content requires immediate Administrative attention (eg. if the material on the page is so offensive that should be immediately deleted).

(Be careful in case that user repeatedly insists on vandalizing, avoid a revert war; it's far better to temporarily leave the vandalized version of the page up until an admin has a chance to intervene.)

To create a new request: add an item to the bottom of the list below, providing a brief, neutral summary of the issue. As a sign of courtesy, also leave a message on the talk page of any other involved users so they are aware of this discussion. If you are alerting an admin of a vandal, use the {{IP}} template, with the first parameter being the vandal's IP or username. If you are requesting that vote(s) be removed, please use the {{Build}} template, with the first parameter being the build's name.

Note that this is not a talk page and that the respective moderators of each section reserve the right to remove non-administrative comments without discussion.

Please place new requests at the bottom of the corresponding issues heading.

General Issues

General problems, such as user conduct, vandalism, and bans. Also, suggestions can be posted here. All can be resolved by an Administrator. See resolved General Issues here.

If you're having troubles with your Authentication E-Mail see here and here

Build-Specific Issues

Build-Specific refers to any issue pertaining to the removal of votes, usually resolved by an Administrator.

If you wish to dispute another user's vote, it is advised to do so on the build's talk page. This section of the noticeboard is intended to notify Admins of issues that can be speedily resolved (e.g. factually incorrect votes) or issues in need of mediation. Avoid debating builds or votes here.

Note: If applicable, please identify specific votes to improve admin response time.

E/A Dagger Spammer (talk · rate)

The discussion on Rainemard's vote seems to be getting unnecessarily heated, please keep an eye on the conversation. -Toraen (talk) 16:48, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

Team - The Deep BYOB (talk · rate)

While I'm normally loathe to bring up old drama, I don't think this was satisfactorily resolved. In the opinions of many including myself (as reflected in the earlier talk sections), this page should be in the guide namespace rather than build. I don't intend to say that the raw number of users in that poll is what should drive this decision, but the reasonings of their votes. Granted, the only vote still in the Build section of the poll is Emilesin's, who probably would have retracted that if they had remembered to do so before leaving the wiki (given their Real Vetting vote). -Toraen (talk) 15:39, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Following the vote there's a guide draft that hasn't been pursued for a while, see here: Build:Team - The Deep BYOB/Guide Draft. We should get back to working on that to realize the page type conversion. --Krschkr (talk) 15:51, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
