Rain World Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Rain World Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to 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.

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 on the Community Portal 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 refer to the Miraheze help center.
  • Use ~~~~ to sign your name and time after your message. Always sign your posts!
  • Use : to indent responses to previous posts. Use multiple colons (:: etc.) indent further.

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 link to the user with [[User:Axolittle]] like so, preferably as the topic subject/headline.

Archived Issues

Map protection

Secretlychris (talk) 12:37, 19 April 2017 (UTC)The Map page needs to be unprotected in order for it to be updated, it was last updated two years ago.Reply[reply]

Thanks for pointing that out, i've removed the admin-only restriction — Game widow (talk) 14:16, 19 April 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Upload limit

Jprosk(talk) 11:36, 7 May 2017 (EST) Can we get the upload limit changed to something higher? Rain World is a game best displayed through gifs and it's pretty tough to get gifs under 8MB.

I know. Let me ask around in the team. Encredechine (talk) 16:30, 7 May 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Jungle Leech InlineIcon


Should rename the link to "Jungle"

I have no idea how to fix this

I see no problem, it displays Jungle for me. Gryfall (talk) 06:51, 18 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(Oh yeah for clarification I fixed it and answered on the Talk page, this page is only for reporting :> I just set up some basic system to indicate when issues are solved) -- Candlesign (talk) 17:03, 18 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Empty Translations

In an effort to remove language-based templates from Special:WantedTemplates, I'd been making empty edits to a few translations so that they'd be tracked but still listed as untranslated. However, because the UI also doesn't do what I want or what I tell it, there've been a few I've accidentally made:

Since these are translation pages, they can't be marked for deletion the usual way, so, I'll ask here instead.

Things we need done by Miraheze

Just sharing this for the next admin to take it up, so the info doesn't get lost.

We have two open issues that need to be filed with MH. You can use your wiki login to log into the Phabricator and file them. LtDk (talk) 02:22, 19 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Marking the page move as done because it was taken care of by User:Bewilderbark! Thank you <3 LtDk (talk) 02:19, 22 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]


(This has to be filed by a Bureaucrat.)

The Chinese translators at Rain World Wiki have decided to standardize on `zh-hans` over `zh` and `zh-cn`, and need a config change to help disable the other two options. This is done on mediawiki.org, for example, and it seems reasonable.

The documentation for the configuration change is here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:Translate/Configuration#Message_group_configuration

This is the code that would need to be added:

$wgTranslateDisabledTargetLanguages = array(
    '*' => array(
        'zh' => 'Translate in zh-hans instead please',
        'zh-cn' => 'Translate in zh-hans instead please',

Moving FP/LTTM Pages

We would like to move two pages on the Rain World Wiki, but unfortunately, with the translation extension, each page and its subpages individually comprises >500 pages to be moved. We would like the following (recursive) moves to be done:

* `Looks_to_the_Moon_(character)` => `Looks_to_the_Moon`
* `Five_Pebbles_(character)` => `Five_Pebbles`
* `Translations:Looks_to_the_Moon_(character)` => `Translations:Looks_to_the_Moon`
* `Translations:Five_Pebbles_(character)` => `Translations:Five_Pebbles`

Thank you!

Two uncategorized pages

Rain World Wiki/Wiki News and Rain World Wiki/News both are uncategorized and could use with adding a {{TranslatedCategory|Rain World Wiki}} at the bottom.

(We'll eventually mark these for translation, but with the job queue borked, let's wait for now.) LtDk (talk) 00:08, 13 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Current Issues

CAPTCHA verification improperly loading?

I was trying to make a new section on a talk page, but I was having issues with the CAPTCHA loading properly. I am pretty sure that it was because I was using the 'new topic' button, because when I manually added one in, the CAPTCHA loaded fine (and told me that it was probably because I used external links). Don't know if this is the proper place, but I checked briefly in the Miraheze help center and couldn't find anything related.

Strange CAPTCHA box on attempting to create a topic

Andrews Basement missing from Region box, region page, and region maps

Can a admin add Andrews Basement to Regions box and to the downpour map? (OuroborosFinis (talk) 13:40, 28 November 2023‎ (UTC))Reply[reply]

Proto Rot page

We've pretty much decided that Proto Rot should be named Proto Long Legs, so, could an admin move the page? (translated pages can't be moved except by an admin) LtDk (talk) 17:40, 6 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(note, this was not settled, so, that's why it's not moved) LtDk (talk) 02:18, 19 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sidebar translation

So, I looked into how we could potentially translate the sidebar, and it looks like the primary way is using unstructured element translation. Essentially, the way MediaWiki handles generic strings is by having pages in the MediaWiki namespace, and then we can add these to a group to be translated, but someone who's an admin has to do this, since you need permissions to edit the sidebar first.

Relevant docs page: mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Unstructured_element_translation

Looking at our sidebar, these are the untranslated strings:

  • Style Guide
  • Admin noticeboard
  • Community Links
  • Official Twitter
  • Developer Twitter
  • Developer Youtube
  • Publisher Youtube
  • Official Discord
  • Official Subreddit
  • Store Links
  • Steam
  • GOG
  • Humble Bundle
  • Playstation
  • Switch
  • Xbox
  • Sibling Wikis
  • RU Wiki
  • RW Modding Wiki
  • RW Mods Wiki
  • RW Devlog
  • RW Tech Wiki (WIP)

And cleaning up the style a bit, this is what I'd set up for the messages:

Note that because these pages can only be added by admins, translators have to submit the strings manually to admins and they can add them. But at least it'll work and translate the UI elements. The proper way you'd add translations is effectively just manually adding the /lang pages you have for regular pages, except again, these can only be edited by admins.

Lizard link is broken on all pages and redirects to Spiders instead of Lizards.

Adding in the Lizard link like so on any page will appear to redirect to the Lizards page, but instead will redirect to the Spiders page when clicked on. This is a major issue that applies to all pages that link to Lizards, and should be fixed as quickly as possible. ~quartzic (talk) 19:45, 2 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
