Deleting pages

How do I delete pages?

Only admins can delete pages. Add the page that you'd like deleted to category:delete, at some point someone will go through there and delete it. [[User:M|–MT]] 19:54, 29 Sep 2005 (CEST)

Thanks for the answer!

Blocking Users

It seems the current wiki configuration wont let sysops block users... Any chance for this to be changed is on hands of the main admins (RogueLord and DarkGod)

Any chance of them blocking said user at least?

I have been given admin access to the database, all I can to from there is delete their accounts, I will look further into blocking them soon. --Slash 17:55, 17 Apr 2006 (CEST)

Rollback link

It appears when you click 'diff' on a recent changes item, I don't recall if it is only accesible to admins though,.. --Slash 17:54, 17 Apr 2006 (CEST)

It does seem to only apply to administrators. --JeffLait 21:55, 18 Apr 2006 (CEST)

talkie talkie page

The addition I made to talkie talkie projects came from a duplicate page, Talkie Talkie Projects, which I then redirected to talkie talkie projects (the proper capitalization). I'm fine with discarding the text and the list, just wanted to let you know where it came from. [[User:M|–MT]] 21:07, 18 Sep 2006 (CEST)


I am placing this note on all 5 sysops talk pages 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 in the hope that some site improvements can be made. (As it appears that only sysops can do what is necessary.)

When I first found the RogueBasin wiki, I was shocked that there wasn't any sort of Help section to assist new users and guide them. (The page hasn't existed since May 30, 2005(!!!), but has been visited almost 3,300 times!) I was also surprised that unless one knew from previous wiki experience where to look, finding out who was in charge (who the sysops/admins were) wasn't possible. The Community Portal page also currently redirects to the talk page, which removes the opportunity for some community-building and direction as well. It is clear to me that roguelikes have some serious fans and some dedicated programmers, and I'm just concerned that the wiki seems to have been left to sit and has gone fairly stagnant.

Currently on User:R2's talk page there is a discussion about date formatting. No standard has been set, and probably this would have been better discussed in the Community Portal, but because of the small number of daily edits, people seem to have found the discussion all right. The problem is that I think everyone in the discussion has their own preference, and there really isn't enough editor presence to come up with a consensus. And no sysop has dropped by, either. Which possibly would help, because someone has to know what the purpose of the site is supposed to be, which might help in some of the decision-making going on. - Kiefer 06:00, 25 July 2008 (CEST)

Purpose of the site is to provide a place for the roguelike community to document itself. A sort of Roguelike-centered Wikipedia, with the NPOV but without the WP:N. As such, I really don't see how the site purpose can shed any light on the ideal date format. Some of those dead pages likely stem from the spam attacks - spammers targeted "common" pages so most of them got locked down. --JeffLait 17:40, 28 July 2008 (CEST)
