The Escapists Wiki

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}} 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.

Request: Only allow registered users to edit

The Crafting page is getting hit by Russian kids or something. It was in disarray when I first found it and I've been trying to fix it up, but since then (17 hours ago) the page was vandalized twice. Can we get some extra protection on this wiki without making it so only Admins can edit a page? --Rahlzel (talk) 19:10, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

It seems to have calmed down a bit, but I will keep an eye on that page. --HiddenKnowledge (talk) 22:05, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
From now on only autoconfirmed editors can edit Crafting. This should lower the vandalism on Crafting a lot. I have set the expiration date for this protection to half a year, so we will have to decide if it's still needed then. (Although it can always be decided it will be lifted earlier obviously.)--User:HiddenKnowledge/signature 19:06, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Hello from Team17, Admins!

Hi guys,

Mike from Team17 here! I'm community manager for The Escapists. I'd love to get in touch with you guys privately to discuss how I can help you here with the wiki - whether it's assets or information you might need. Contact me on so we can chat!

Corruption problem

Where is an administration? Here is too much vandals. Refield (talk) 20:02, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

I'll mark the pages that need deletion as such and try to scrub through the rest of them. I'd also like to hear from HiddenKnowledge later to see if there is a chance of me being promoted if I become more active again. --ShySkream (talk) 23:42, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you guys for keeping up with the wiki while I was sick, I have a pretty severe stomach flu and it doesn't seem to want to go away any time soon. I'll take a look at the pages that were flagged for deletion. About the promotion.. There seems to be a error in my access permissions because I can't promote anyone. I'll contact Curse about this (Not meant as an insult, but I think that the guy that assigns the permissions isn't very familiar with Mediawiki).

Request: Profile Deletion

Hello. I am posting here to request a profile deletion on JhonataMiguelez. He/She has been posting advertisements for Minecraft about once every day. It is getting annoying, and I want him/her to stop. TerraPony (talk) 18:49, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, I've banned this user and deleted the pages (s)he created. --User:HiddenKnowledge/signature 13:26, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Request: Admin Requirements and Promotion

Hello, I'm asking what the admin requirements and if I could be promoted to admin. I don't expect a yes. TerraPony (talk) 17:20, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
