We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

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.

Resolved issues[edit source]

Delete edits?[edit source]

First there isn't such a link/button

Please post new topics at the bottom of the page by clicking "add topic" above.

so I manually did something similar.

I made 2 edits on Khalim on 14 May 2014 which I just undid‎ as I realized it was on the wrong page/article. If someone was to navigate the page history, one could find it confusing. On my homepage I prefer to remove content from the historic if all the edits from the same user amounting to nothing were done in a short period. I guess it amounts to: historical accuracy VS cleaner historic. DynV (talk) 04:37, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Current issues[edit source]

Unallowed edits[edit source]

Tried to make a few grammar edits to a page, very simple edits, but the edits were auto-rejected for "disallow certain words in mainspace articles". I can't imagine what they were as the edits were basic things such as tho->though, Nuther->another, i->I etc. Spent a long time editing, and I copied the changes just in case someone can shed light on it, shame to lose em.

I apologize for the issues you ran into. I made some changes to the ambitious abuse filters. Please try your changes again and let me know if you run into any issues. Thanks! --Alianin (talk) 16:39, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
