Dota 2 Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Dota 2 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.

Current Issues[edit]

Loading external info-boxes with abilities fails[edit]

Loading a info box with the Template:Unit infobox wrap on pages such as Brewmaster's Earth causes a Cargo error when loading ability data in the infobox, while info-boxes on the original page work fine such as Brewmaster Earth icon.png Earth Sanhard (talk) 00:11, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Abaddon Talent addition not functioning[edit]

I'm attempting to update the Abaddon Hero page to show talent-scaled ability numbers in line like most other pages do. I started basically from the ground up since the page was building ability information straight from a dpl which mostly works fine. The part that doesn't work regardless of if I use the visual or source editor, is the calc command:

{{calc|v1+{{show|T|Abaddon|talent2left value}}|v1={{#show:#Mist Coil|?value3#}}}}

Instead of doing the calculation given, the page returns the following error:

Lua error in Module:Calculate at line 35: Unrecognized word "v" in expression "v1+75".

This is the way other pages sources seem to be formatted, so I'm curious if there is some other way these values have to be calculated or if I'm overlooking something. This is my first time editing with this much Lua so that seems very possible from my side.

Thanks for any clarification/help on this Technodude9000 (talk) 21:12, 29 June 2018 (UTC) Technodude9000

Because of Abaddon's abilities got separated to sub-pages like "Abaddon/Mist Coil", your variant wouldn't work. This one would:

{{calc|v1+{{show|T|Abaddon|talent2left value}}|v1={{#show:Abaddon/Mist Coil#Mist Coil|?value3#}}}}

But this is only for Abaddon, because his page is unique and, I think, because of testing purposes. Medok 21:24, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
