Hearthstone Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Hearthstone 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]

Formatting/capitalizing[edit source]

According to the Help:Style guide, keywords and tribes should not be capitalized. However, in many articles it seems that they are, by default, capitalized. Should the style guide be updated or should we start fixing the incorrect capitalizations? I recommend the latter, based on the current style guide as well as the rules of English language.

Main page needs to be updated[edit source]

The main page needs to be updated to show the three upcoming mechanics. Additionally, the gameplay section does not mention dungeon run. Quater (discuss) 12:20, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

@OOeyes Just an idea, but I can't help but think that saying "before April 30" is more ambiguous than saying "sometime in April". At the moment, it implies it could be released in March, which we can assume to not be the case given their previous release cycle. Quater (discuss) 11:00, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Given KnC was released months ago, it's probably best to change the featured video to this. Quater (discuss) 10:02, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Official release date for TWW has been announced. It's April 12. Quater (discuss) 11:12, 6 April 2018 (UTC) ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Monster Hunt should be added to the Gameplay section.

K&C[edit source]

See here. Surafbrov 07:33, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

I don't consider this to be an administrative decision. If you're concerned about community reaction, feel free to see if there are any objections by posting on Project talk:Community portal and waiting a few days. But since leaving the redirect behinds doesn't break links, you could just go ahead and do it too. oOeyes User-OOeyes-Sig.png 16:22, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Apostrophe Bug[edit source]

Any card with an apostrophe in its name (Woodcutter's Axe, Al'Akir the Windlord, Mukla's Champion ect) is currently bugged when viewed in a chart. It displays a broken 200x link instead of the card. When hovered over, the page its trying to link to is written as "Everything before the apostrophe"& (Woodcutter&, Al&, Mukla&). I have no idea what caused this. TheMurlocAggroB (talk) 16:10, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

This is totally unrelated, but, fun fact: commas (not apostrophes) did not start appearing in the names of Hearthstone cards until Whispers of the Old Gods. Aegonostic (talk) 18:45, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
Fix is in. I had to do it in {{Card infobox}}, though, so it won't be reflected in all cases immediately. I'll run a bot over card pages to try to speed it up. oOeyes User-OOeyes-Sig.png 01:49, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

Secrets page has a problem[edit source]

It shows the following error: A database query error has occurred. Did you forget to run your application's database schema updater after upgrading? 138.75.236.188 16:20, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

Descriptions are always showed collapsed (solved)[edit source]

Names were fixed by using the purge cache option on the top right of the page. Table content is always collapsed. For reviewing cards and correcting errors it's necessary to be able to see and copy paste the table uncollapsed. For example https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/The_Witchwood_card_list Grommpy (talk) 17:25, 4 August 2018 (UTC) I've tried updating my hydra.js but it doesn't work. Grommpy (talk) 17:57, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

|collapsed=no just worked fine for me, at least on custom card table. Are you using it like this?
{{Custom card table|set=The Witchwood|collectible=true|collapsed=no}}
If so, it shouldn't collapse. Also, the variables in your hydra.js won't affect the card table collapse script; they have nothing to do with it. oOeyes User-OOeyes-Sig.png 04:33, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
I tried |collapsed=no in 2 browsers both with and without loading java script, try and copy pasting the Black Cat entry: You'll get the Spell Damage +1, but not the next line: Battlecry: If your deck has only odd-Cost cards, draw a card. Grommpy (talk) 21:33, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
The complete data is in the .html source code, so I downloaded the page, edited it, cut out all the java and css going on, and only left the < table > parts. Problem solved. Grommpy (talk) 21:58, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Flood of anon vandalism[edit source]

There's a flood of vandalism on the Hearthstone wiki pages today, coming from three IP addresses:

Honestly, it looks like kids in a school library making fun of each other. All of these IP addresses look like vandalism-only. Asolovay (talk) 21:12, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

Requesting assistance on recent vandalism blanking. Aegonostic (talk) 21:25, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
I've fixed most of them, and there were two pages which needed fixing, I did the fixes.
These users came from the Hearthstone Discord server. TheGamer765 (talk) 23:46, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Hey, I'm a bit late to the party, but I've preventively blocked the IPs for a week. Hopefully they won't come back. Frisk (talk) 00:02, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks much, all! Asolovay (talk) 00:07, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

The error showing in the main page of this wiki (mobile version)[edit source]

Since I cannot edit the Main Page, I want to say that the newest expansion it should show in the mobile version is Rastakhan Rumble, not The Witchwood. Thanks. Minhngoc25a (talk) 14:49, 29 December 2018 (UTC).

Fixed. oOeyes User-OOeyes-Sig.png 15:21, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

Problem with data caching and purging[edit source]

Bringing this issue onto the admin noticeboard, see Talk:Twinspell. In short, in some cases purging pages will work to update the page's data, but in a growing number of cases, pages are getting stuck on the same data even with the help of pressing the purge button. Will there be a fix for data caching and the problem of "data getting stuck" in the future? Aegonostic (talk) 03:47, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Yes, this is especially true with Nightborne art, which is not updating at all and has not ever updated since its creation. Cactusisawesome (talk) 07
03, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
Purging the pages with the lists only works when the caching issue is on that page. Sometimes, it is on the source page, and in these cases, you usually have to open the page for editing and save it without changes. I did this with Ray of Frost and it is now appearing on both Twinspell and Nightborne art after a purge of those. This is a longstanding issue, and I've heard nothing of a fix coming for it. I'm running my bot over all the card pages now in case any others have this issue. oOeyes User-OOeyes-Sig.png 14:58, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Ok, thanks! So I guess I had to purge both the card datapage and the card page. I'll try doing this next time. Also, does anyone know why Quest_(ability)#Quests isn't showing any cards anymore? Aegonostic (talk) 16:04, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
I managed to sort it out. The parentheses needed some special handling. oOeyes User-OOeyes-Sig.png 18:45, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Make {{List cards}} visually sort cards by mana (and by card name)?[edit source]

I notice that it would be immensely helpful if the template {{List cards}} could, by default, sort cards by mana (and by card name) when the cards are visually displayed on the screen.

For example, in the following template, Bronze Herald is shown, then Cobalt Scalebane, etc. Is there any way to make it so that by default, the lowest cost cards come first, and make it proceed in increasing mana? (I know that the card table has the "wikitable sort" functionality, but can the visual table be made to do this by default?)

{{List cards|format=standard|type=Minion|subtype=Dragon{{!}}{{!}}All|collectible=True}}

So in short, I'm asking if it's possible to do a cargo query of two sortings (one on mana, and then a second on card name) and display it visually. Aegonostic (talk) 05:45, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

I've switched {{Cards}} over to descending sort by mana and secondary sort by name. Did we want to change the tables' starting sort too? oOeyes User-OOeyes-Sig.png 18:45, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
Is it ok if you do ascending sort for mana (and the current ascending sort for name is good as is).
I think the tables' starting sort can be double as well: (1) Sort by Rarity like it is now and (2) Sort by mana ascending. Just to mix it up a bit with the table vs the visual list. Aegonostic (talk) 22:15, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

More content on the sidebar?[edit source]

Recently Blizzard added their own gallery for cards, and I figured that they could be featured on our sidebar, is there a reason we are not adding it or is it that it hasn't come to anyone's attention? Cactusisawesome (talk) 15:01, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

Just didn't occur to me to add it. But it's there now. oOeyes User-OOeyes-Sig.png 09:39, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
