Welcome to the Noticeboard!

The Noticeboard is used for reporting anything that needs Administrator/Bureaucrat action or attention, or to bring things to the attention of the Admin Tools Wiki community, good or bad. Such reports include, but are not limited to, sock puppetry, vandalism, deadlines and backlogs, or Administrator requests.

For the help desk where users can ask questions about Admin Tools Wiki, or obtain assistance from other editors, go to User help.

In short, this page is a noticeboard for posting anything that users think the rest of the Admin Tools Wiki community needs to know or should be discussed.

Anon comments


do u know what it is?

So I was wondering if there is a code out there  that we can use to disabled anons from commenting our wikia. Cause 99% of anons we have are as immature and trollish as this one: w:c:pretty-little-liars:Special:Contributions/ Also, I keep getting this message on when I go wikia. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Fearless Diva (talkcontribs) 03:52, August 30, 2014‎ (UTC).
Any attempt to limit the participation of IP-only editors (i.e., so-called “anons”) would violate Wikia’s Terms of Use. Thus, any abuse filter created to block their editing would be removed by Staff.
You could ask Staff — via your wiki’s Special:Contact — if they would consider semi-protecting your wiki, which blocks all anon edits. Generally, though, Staff only do this for wikis experiencing too much under-13-years-of-age traffic.
Finally, the only real option available to you is the use of properly set “soft” blocks on IPs and narrow IP ranges, which have the effect of forcing those IPs to create accounts if they want to edit the wiki. — SpikeToronto 15:56, September 1, 2014 (UTC)
Ambox notice UPDATE: Sorry about bumping a very old thread, but you could just go to Special:WikiFeatures and enabling 'Require all contributors to log in'. --Sophie 02:42, April 4, 2016 (UTC)
That feature was not available back when this was posted. But, thank you for adding the comment: If anyone happens by, it’ll be nice to have the updated information. Face-smile Thanks!SpikeToronto 05:09, April 4, 2016 (UTC)

Creating new user groups

I was wondering, how did you get Wikia to configure userrights? That is, how did you get them to add groups like "testing administrator"? I understand that you can change names of groups on-wiki in the MediaWiki namespace, but surely you can't add groups. Thanks. Lixxx235 (talk) 03:06, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

Contact Staff via Special:Contact at whichever wikia it is that you want to add the new user group to. Indicate in that communication the new user group you want to create, and what user rights you want assigned to it. Do not be surprised if you are asked to show Staff where on your wikia its community has discussed the issue and arrived at a consensus regarding the new user group. Hope this helps!

P.S. By the way, your question should probably have been posted at Admin Tools Wiki:User help (shortcut → ATW:UH).Face-winkSpikeToronto 06:03, September 23, 2014 (UTC)

NerdAlert123 is misbehaving!

NerdAlert123 is abusing his admin ship by kicking and banning people for no reason —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Adambreeandchaselove (talkcontribs) 17:50, April 21, 2015‎ (UTC).

Adam, this is not an issue related to the Admin Tools Wiki community. There is no User:NerdAlert123 here at this wiki. This is a Lab Rats wiki issue. Therefore, you need to discuss it there. If you need to involve Wikia staff, you may contact them at the Lab Rats wiki. Good luck! — SpikeToronto 03:52, April 23, 2015 (UTC)
