Cobalt Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Cobalt 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]

Official Discord Link on sidebar[edit source]

Can we have the official discord link added to the sidebar? The forums are pretty much dead by now. TintedMirrors 07:43, 18 February 2020 (UTC)

Can you provide me with a permanent link for it? TheSatanicSanta (talk) 00:20, 19 February 2020 (UTC) // pfm2001 (talk)
EDIT: This is going to sound petty, but may I please ask that Facebook be capitalised appropriately as well? Thanks // pfm2001 (talk) 14:18, 27 February 2020 (UTC)

Fonts![edit source]

Hey! I'd like to suggest adding both Forgotten Futurist as fonts for the wiki and use it for wiki elements. Forgotten Futurist's EULA allows us to use it as long as it's not embedded in the website, which it wouldn't be.

@font-face {font-family: "Forgotten Futurist";
    src: url("//");
    src: url("//") format("embedded-opentype"),
    url("//") format("woff2"),
    url("//") format("woff"),
    url("//") format("truetype"),
    url("// Futurist") format("svg");

Page icon[edit source]

Hi! I’d like to request that File:High quality.png be used as the page icon, instead of the low-res blue metalface. TintedMirrors 15:44, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

Do you mean the favicon? Should I update the File:Metalface.png on the main page as well? TheSatanicSanta (talk) 17:08, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I do mean the favicon, and updating the main page file too would be really appreciated. TintedMirrors 17:12, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you again, but I'm not sure that the picture is the best for the favicon. It's great for the main menu, but not necessarily for the favicon. I've got another suggestion for the favicon though, File:Cobalt metalface head.png.
Agreed, done TheSatanicSanta (talk) 20:45, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
