Use this thread for important staff requests that are not covered by more specialised topics or forums.

All staff members should preferably subscribe to it.

No, sorry. For safety reasons, our standard praxis is to close wiki management threads when we notice that they have reached over 400 posts. That way we minimise the risk of being without an important report thread for a prolonged period of time.

This is somewhat more of a quality of life suggestion, but maybe give former Staff members a separate color just to be more easily recognizable?

Giving former staff members a colour would be impractical, yes, and we are also running out of easily distinguishable options.

I responded to both, but that is technically not what this thread is for.

It would be a good idea to add to Promestein´s "message" sent to new users to also mention the VS Battles Glossary page?

Last time I checked it doesn´t for some reason, it would be wise to do so new users don´t feel "alienized" whenever they want to join a thread or stuff like that.

I'm not opposed to retired staff getting a color, perhaps indigo or a dark shade of grey. Not pushing for it either.

Images aren't supposed to be deleted if they don't break any rules, but I handled the deletion anyways.
Oh, okay. Thought images were deleted if they weren't in use. Thanks though

Think it was a glitch. Something like this happened before to many threads.

I am currently asking the Community council about it. For some reason using WHAM did not only remove the troll comment, it deleted the entire thread.

I will start a new rule violation report thread in the meantime.

It could be possible to make some code so a message like this appears in threads that are over a month old?

Anti necroposting
It would help to reduce the necroing to when it´s actually needed, especially for new members.

Could it be added to the wiki in that case?
It would need approval from Bureaucrats like @Antvasima and likely other staffs, in general, @Bobsican.

I would suspect the discussion might better handled in a CRT Staff discussion.

Can I do the CRT for it?
Because I feel this would be more of an "Staff only" thread.
I had a brain fart I originally meant staff only discussion, I fix it now.
 
I wasn't sure whether there was a specific thread for this, but since I couldn't find one I'm posting it here. Would someone knowledgeable on profile creation mind looking through this one for me? I made it just now and to the best of my abilities, but it's my first one so I just want to make sure I haven't made some hidious abomination against vs debates that would cause the world's first vs debators to roll over in their graves out of sheer disgust.

@Skaffolding

It mostly seemed fine, but I cleaned it up a bit.

I'm not sure if this is the place to say this but for some reason my blogs have a problem. Not a single comment is shown anymore for some reason, while most of them have tens of replies before.

I don't know if this has happened to another person. This might be a bug from Fandom, or might be related with my recent nickname replacement.

Yes. Any time somebody changes their username, all of the comments in their blog posts automatically get wiped out. I have mentioned it to Fandom long ago, but they do not seem to have fixed the issue.

You can contact them again about it if you wish.

So that was the problem. Well, I think it might be necessary to contact the calc group members. The calculations were accepted, but that might lead to misunderstatements.

I do not have enough free time to handle this for you. You have to do so yourself, both in terms of contacting the Fandom staff about restoring the comments, and the calc group members to avoid misunderstandings. My apologies.

What categories should they be swapped to? The concepts do not seem inherently inappropriate to list.

You need to ask a few calc group members directly instead.
