Foremost reason I adopted the wiki was that I could get access to Theme Designer. But that is off the point.
I think it is not in my power to cancel the request, but I think they will double-check whether admin is truly inactive and other such things. I made some edits recently, maybe that invalidates the adoption request, but we will see :P.
As for the vandalism, I can give you some helping tools by giving you Content Moderator rights (of course, if that is enough for you).
Yeah, they should definitely double check and see that you have returned. The adoption request will be invalidated for sure.
I took the time to read what a Content Moderator can do, and that would fulfull the objective of preventing page vandalism efficiently. Thanks
The other contributor named Dave-i2ri83lk is somebody I know. He also provides very useful contents and I would also like to nominate him as a Content Moderator. Recently I transferred ownership of a CP2 group in Starcraft to him, giving him administrative rights, which means I fully trust him.
Initially, I wanted to delete some extremely old pages. So old, that it would serve no purpose to even read them at all, because things in the game have changed so much.
However, there were countless hours that the different authors spent writing them, so I suppose I will place those very obsolete pages in some sort of Archive section, instead of making them disappear into oblivion, which would not do justice to the people who wrote them years ago.
Depends, if the pages you are talking about are about a mechanic, item, mastery, skill or something similar that doesn't exist at all in new/still playable versions and can't be encountered in any way, it would be a good idea to delete it. But if it is just outdated info about something that still exists, it would be better to update that info (for example, if some Hero page has info about old abilities or about talents that have been redone). Still, it would be nice if someone else, be it reader/editor, would take part in deciding what to do with not-so-up-to-date pages.
And about the injustice, you can always try to message someone who contributed a lot to the page. In the message you can ask if you they would mind if the page is going to be deleted. If they don't answer within some kind of period, you could just inform them about deletion of that page. That would be the action if you wanted to be really polite, but I don't think you or I have patience to do that with every page. So maybe just fire away and delete the pages (if updating those pages is really problematic).
"If the pages you are talking about are about a mechanic, item, mastery, skill or something similar that doesn't exist at all in new/still playable versions and can't be encountered in any way, it would be a good idea to delete it." -> There are MANY pages like that. For example, some Masteries have been completely eliminated from the game.
Since it woud be far too time-consuming, it would indeed be better to just start cleaning up those kinds of pages, especially since there were written by anonymous people with just IP addresses.
I was honestly lost for hope. Never expected a reply from an admin that seemed to have disappeared, but thank god you are here.
This issue has not at all been resolved, since, so far, there are at least 2 people doing their trolling. One from Sweden based on IP, and one from Danmark.
Even if it seems that the incident has been resolved with one of them, the mere fact that they refused to have a "Talk Page" to discuss matters, and simply deleted things they did not agree with is not the way to go.
That was a hostage situation, and may likely occur again, especially when I add some more pages. How would I protect those pages then?
Could you link me the pages that are being trolled? (So I could see the trolling users)
Also, I thought about moving your guides to a page that will have all your guides in it (called "GhostDragon's guides (throughout/recommended/idk)"), and move that single page to the "Guides" section on the main page (makes sense?). Then I would move the guides section higher, beneath "Patch Notes", so the guides aren't buried at the bottom of the page.
This would make main page have less of your name splattered across it. (rn it may be perceived as if you are the author of all the info on the wiki)
Check out your Admin Dashboard, which can by found by clicking "Admin" on the bottom toolbar -- it has links to all your new tools. Please let me know if you have any questions, and good luck with your new (old) wikia!
Hi, just to correct you quickly - you don't lose any massacre bonuses when you die, and it is indeed possible to obtain the 1k bonus once again.
Edit - The objective bonuses in mental is set, and not random at all - Doms give talent points, spine minerals, outpost gives talent points and the black hole thingi givies minerals - no idea about the rest.
