RuneScape Wiki
This talk page is for discussing the RuneScape:Administrative requests page.


Would a better title for this page be Administrative requests? It's not like I'm requesting an administrator be delivered to my front door. --Iiii I I I 00:14, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Could you bring me two sysops, three custodians, three rollbackers and one bureaucrat please.
About pagename: Sure whatever, doesn't matter to me. Weird gloop.png @Gaz#7521 01:34, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
Do I count as both a custodian and a rollbacker, or do I only count as 1? :o User:TyA/sig 01:35, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
Administrator requests in this case means requests for administrators. I think common sense can prevail here and dictate that the current title is fine. --LiquidTalk 01:41, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
RIGHT AWAY MISTUR IM BRINGING THEM --Iiii I I I 01:42, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
I liek Administrative, it sounds more administrative. 222 talk 01:50, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
But seriously, I like administrative since we are asking for administrative things to be done, not for an admin to be delivered, in a box, directly to your door. User:TyA/sig 21:07, December 23, 2010 (UTC)
Read "Administrator requests in this case means requests for administrators." carefully, liquidhelium, and you will still get at the delivery system. "Administrator requests in this case means requests for administrators". requests for administrators. That definetely looks like requesting an administrator. Just don't be so conservative please, thanks. Oh and gaz: am i good enough? I hope i count as custurdian and rollbacker both... JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 19:59, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

To become an admin you must pass a Request for adminship, to even have a chance for that you need to have contributed to the wiki for a while and have proven yourself trustworthy. The first thing you need to do though is create an account. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 14:05, January 16, 2011 (UTC)#

Vandalism question

I currently tried cleaning up Tutorial Island by moving all photos to a Level 2 headline Gallery. When I went to save page I got the message

"The action that you are about to take has been identified as vandalism.

You are still able to complete this edit; however, if you are attempting to vandalise the wiki, please realise that your edits will be reverted, and you may be blocked from editing.

If you believe your edit was constructive and have received this message in error, please contact an administrator."

I believe this action was constructive to match the Style guide specifications.

If you believe your edit isn't vandalism, then just ignore the warning then. Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 05:13, February 15, 2011 (UTC)

No topic

I miss the auto fill feature of the search option. It's been gone for a while now and more and more I miss it. I wish we could bring it back. Maybe if I was a better speller it wouldn't matter but I honestly can't see a reason why it went away. Just my two cents.

There is a bug with the search that our host Wikia has yet to fix. The autofill still works, but you have to capitalize the first letter. User:TyA/sig 18:53, August 2, 2012 (UTC)

Contradicting note

The article says:
Note: Please only make requests on this page that specifically require sysop tools to fulfill.

While it also states: What this page is for: [...]

  • Minor edits to protected pages. [...]

I believe these two things contradict each other. 3ICE (talk) 22:07, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

Not if the page is fully protected. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 22:17, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

Suggestion: add Template:Editprotected

Having an {{editprotected}} template would be useful for requesting edits to protected pages. Wikipedia has one. 3ICE (talk) 22:07, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

What advantage would this system offer over the use of RS:AR? Also, here is Wikipedia's template, for other interested editors. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 22:19, September 3, 2012 (UTC)
Edit requests would stay on the relevant article talk pages instead of being collected here (and then possibly getting mass deleted). 3ICE (talk) 01:29, September 4, 2012 (UTC)
We don't mass delete requests on the AR page. Protected page edit requests are so rare that having them on the article's talk page to de-clutter is not a solid argument. RS:AR is checked regularly, we've mostly done away with all the talk page templates (except for requests for closure) due to their lack of use on this wiki.

Restore user pages

Hi, any chance I could get my user pages that were recently deleted by PiscinePanzer temporarily restored? So I have at least a few days to back everything up? Not that there's much to back up.
