Added. Thanks! --Alianin TC 14:13, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Edit request

Change "On Gamepedia, all blocks are applied globally" to "On Gamepedia, all blocks are applied globally unless set otherwise," or remove that sentence completely. The block settings I guess have been modified since, so that you can deselect "add new or modify existing global block."--Madminecrafter12 (talk) 13:14, 12 July 2018 (UTC)

Update request

Could This right is reserved by and restricted to Gamepedia staff be changed to This right is reserved by and restricted to Gamepedia staff and bureaucrats in the hiding individual revisions section? I would also strongly suggest linking to the RevisionDelete page somewhere in that section.--Madminecrafter12 (talk) 21:59, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

More edit requests

Just a few things I've noticed that I would appreciate if someone could correct:

  • I think in the "Types of administrator" section, it should be clarified that all bureaucrats also have the administrator role. Here it makes it seem like there are 3 different types of admins: administrators, bureaucrats, and wiki guardians. However, it's not exactly the case; it's really just admins and guardians, while bureaucrats are a supplement which allows for modifying user rights. Maybe adding a sentence such as "Do note that all bureaucrats should also have the normal administrator or wiki guardian role; the bureaucrat role itself doesn't provide most of the administrator features."
    Bureaucrats do not have admin rights. They have rights that admins don't have. To have all the rights, a user would need both Administrator and Bureaucrat.
  • Special:Blockip is no longer the name, it's now Special:Block. It looks like it's a "special page redirect" now or whatever you would call such a thing.
  • "All blocks on Gamepedia are applied globally." Nope, blocks can be local now. See the edit request above; I didn't catch this sentence.
  • "No permanent ("Indefinite") blocks should be applied." I'm pretty sure this is false. Clear spammers, sockpuppets, and very persistent repeated vandals can be indefinitely blocked, as far as I know. Of course, this isn't true for IPs. Maybe we should change it to "Permanent (Indefinite) blocks should only be applied to registered users, as IPs can be reassigned or shared"?
  • "If you see this, revert it immediately, and contact your wiki manager to hide the revision." Wouldn't it also be acceptable to contact a local bureaucrat, if one exists?
  • I would recommend adding something to the Rollback section such as "Rollback should only be used for clear vandalism and spam. If an edit is not such, assume good faith and leave a polite revert summary."
  • Decapitalize "Administrators" in the headings of the first section. Administrators are a common noun and headings should use sentence case.
  • Decapitalize "Move Protection" in its heading. Having Move Protection and then Create protection annoys me so much! :-)

There's quite a bit more, actually, but this is what I noticed at first glance. It might be worth having an editcopy page for this, considering how many things I find that need to be corrected. We could probably lower the protection, but it seems to be standard practice to protect the Administrators guide on all wikis, which I've never thought was a good idea.--Madminecrafter12 (talk) 00:48, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
