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.

Using this noticeboard

Before posting an issue here, please consider the following:

  • This page is for reporting wiki issues. Please post discussions about this page 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.

Handling vandalism

Before posting about vandalism on this noticeboard:

  • Revert it first; anyone can do so.
  • If the vandal created a new page, tag it for deletion using {{delete}}.
  • 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.
  • Avoid a revert war with the vandal and wait until an admin has a chance to intervene.
  • If a user must be reported here, please use {{user|username}}, preferably as the topic subject/headline.

Current Issues

Default site appearance - Readability

I recently learned about this site and that it is superseding the fandom wiki. Coming over from the fandom wiki, there were two issues that stood out to me immediately:

  1. Links are sometimes unreadable due to their text colors, often requiring me to highlight them to read them; and
  2. Tables/lists are hurting my eyeballs due to being light-styled, especially contrasted against the default dark-style of the site in general.

Regarding #1. I think most links are fine. The most notable ones that have this issue are the links in the main navigation panel sidebar. With default preferences the unclicked links on the sidebar are readable, but the darker clicked links are a blur melted into the background. I don't know if the site default css (vector?) is overwriting the main body link font but not the side panel link font, or maybe vice versa. If so, I'm guessing this issue would be an easy fix.

Regarding #2. I'm guessing the default site css is hardcoding the background and text colors for tables (and whatever element the Read/Edit/View History navigation box is). I would assume that making them match the site's normal font would be easy and preferable. Even if the exact values aren't good for other reasons, styling them as light text on a dark background to coordinate with the non-table style of the rest of the site is still more preferable to the opposite.

Hi! Thanks for the details! I wonder if you could also either upload a screenshot, or link a specific problem-page and describe your setup a bit more. E.g. on firefox on a laptop, i'm seeing for the page on Items
Also, are you using a Dark Mode or similar browser extension? (I tried turning on "Dark Reader", but that didn't break anything).
It seems identical on a phone browser, so it's probably not mobile-specific. Thanks! Quiddity-wp (talk) 08:07, 19 November 2022 (UTC)
