Outer Wilds Wiki:Admin noticeboard

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 IssuesEdit

Hey guys, I tried to claim the Wiki but wasn't able to as I hadn't contributed before, so here is evidence of me contributing!

Homepage photo updateEdit

I don't know what you prefer, I have newer photos of the planets and travelers uploaded if you want them replaced on the homepage

  • hey there! Definitely new images. If you'd like to upload some I can format them in. — LegenDove (talk)
  • I've been working on updating some of the pages throughout the wiki. I will provide the links to the photos I have uploaded/reuploaded. Timber Hearth, Dark Bramble, Brittle Hollow. Though The Hour Glass Twins, Giant's Deep, and the Interloper have had their files updated, and look good. As for the Travelers: Chert, Esker, Riebeck, Gabbro, and Feldspar. Thanks!

Questions about this wikiEdit

Hello, I have a few questions and things that I'd like to point out.

  1. In the sidebar on the left, the links for all the "Astronomical Objects" lead to images or broken image links. Not sure if this is intentional but this should be fixed to the page name.
  2. Is there a way to communicate somewhere with editors such as a Discord server? I'm having a hard time contacting anyone.
  3. I was searching for all the text files in the game and couldn't find them on the wiki, only NPC dialogue. Is it possible that text from scrolls and recordings text can be added to the astronomical object pages in the future? I can extract all the text from the game and organize it myself if necessary.
  4. There are no images for any of the Nomai except for Solanum. Is it ok if I just add any of the confirmed named Nomai corpse images to their respective pages? — Sumwan (talk) 20:44, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
  1. Corrected.
  2. There is no specific discord/comms tool for the wiki, but there is an Unofficial discord you may find members at.
  3. Definitely! Would love to see some added text files for scrolls/etc if you have access to them., though I think some may exist here and there.
  4. How did you confirm the skeletons belong to specific Nomai? Dev confirmation? Make sure you cite the ones you're sure of and you can add an image at the bottom of the page in a gallery. — Arirthos (talk) 17:09, 8 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the quick response! There are several Nomai corpses which have confirmed locations such as the ones on the Interloper (Poke, Clary, and Pye). Of course, I would not add an image of any unconfirmed ones. Where exactly would you like the text files on each page? I don't think it would look good if there's just a huge text dump in the middle of a page. — Sumwan (talk) 08:10, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
I think it would make sense if we could match them to the locations where they are found in a collapsible format so we don't have huge text dumps in the middle of a page. — Arirthos (talk) 17:24, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
Got it, I'll see what I can do! — Sumwan (talk) 11:08, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
