Disambig.png This article is about the current version of the Admin noticeboard. For the archived version, see No Mans Sky Wiki:Admin noticeboard (Archived).

The Admin noticeboard is a message posting page.

Summary[edit source]

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 (Post under Active Issue). 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.

Help on Dirty Bronze to fix "no display" of Geodesite under its Crafting section Sept 25 2019[edit source]

I've added a quick discussion on what I tried on the Dirty Bronze talk page. Additional help on getting it fixed is requested. ThadG (talk) 01:36, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

We are in the process of converting all of the "blueprint/crafting" pages to using a new display macro. As a result, some may not show complete information as related pages may not have been converted yet. If you have questions about a specific page (such as Dirty Bronze), contact Beerbelott as he has been very generous with his time to actually undertake the conversion. Thanks!

Resolved issues[edit source]

COMPLETE - Documenting previous versions of the game (22 August 2019)[edit source]

I think we should do something to write more texts about how the game was before, especially before the Atlas Rises (1.30). As someone who mostly played before Atlas Rises, I remember finishing the entire Atlas Path by collecting Atlas Stones and I never quite understood what the Travellers were about since they got introduced in 1.30 and I still have to start the Artemis Path. I also mostly spent time with Polo and Nada before 1.30 and I'm having a hard time remembering what purpose they served. Such enhancements to existing articles would be a great way to document the numerous changes in No Man's Sky, and they would be helpful for players like me who are trying to transfer pre-1.38 saves to Beyond. (As a matter of fact, I tried doing so and it seems to work... The Atlas Path is still in my Log with the sole objective to "Explore the galaxy". I'm not sure I'll be able to start the Artemis Path though... -BowiQC (talk) 20:19, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Many of our pages do contain information from previous versions, although certainly not written up specifically as pre-AR pages. On items that can be crafted, for example, there is often a release-history section giving a brief overview of the release changes. Some pages contain archives from previous version - you can tell those by looking at the top of the page for a disambiguation statement. You can look at the history of a page and page through these to see see each change that was made in succession. Some pages have not been updated SINCE Atlas Rises and before, you can tell those by the banner at the top telling under which release the page was last updated.
However, I'm sure you can also understand that those using the wiki for the current release of the game are gong to far, far, exceed players working from earlier versions of the game, such as yourself <g> ANd that being the case, we really have to do our best to keep the wiki current as much as we can. So in short, there are ways you can investigate the early stages of the game; it may not be straightforward, but all the information and all the changes are still out there to be found.

Thanks for the info!--BowiQC (talk) 05:05, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

Other Translations[edit source]

COMPLETE - German translation (8 August 2016)[edit source]

Hey there, I just wanted to ask if it's possible to start a German translation of the Wiki? marclu00 (talk) 06:57, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes, we can do a German translation. We just ask you go ahead and translate the main page using the translation guidelines and a couple other pages and we can get it spun up. Let me know if you have any questions! --Alianin T •  C 12:51, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
If you need any help translating correctly or someone to proof read your translations you can contact me through my talk page. --TakaNoYaiba (talk) 16:41, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
The wiki is up and the translations are moved over. Let me know if you need anything! --Alianin T •  C 21:13, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Traditional Chinese translation (18 August 2016)[edit source]

Hi, I am wondering if we can do Trad. Chinese translation for NMS wiki? I can do the translations since I do this for living (and simplified too if needed). Also what does it takes to become an admin for wiki? Wanted to be NMS wiki admin :) Love this game so much! Twitter from Murrey about adding add lang support for NMS > https://twitter.com/NoMansSky/status/756900190859264000 --Wei2Awesome (talk) 23:48, 18 August 2016 (UTC)Wei2Awesome

Yes, we can do a Chinese translation. We just ask you go ahead and translate the main page using the translation guidelines and a couple other pages and we can get it spun up. Which version of Chinese? There's a few different ones we can use. Let me know if you have any questions! --Alianin T •  C 19:26, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
Ok i think I figured out what to do, give me one second creates some crucial pages with mark with zh-TW. Thanks--Wei2Awesome (talk) 21:26, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
Copying my responses over from my talk page.
Hello! Yes, your example is correct. For the main page use "No Man's Sky Wiki/zh-tw" and then put in your translation of the page there. We only need the main page and a couple others, just to show there's interest and we can get things moving! --Alianin T •  C 17:33, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
Are you sure about zh-tw? That's Chinese (Taiwan). There's these options: zh - Chinese, zh-hans - Chinese (simplified), zh-hant - Chinese (traditional), zh-tw - Chinese (Taiwan), and a bunch of others, but those are the popular ones. I just want to make sure we spin up the correct language. --Alianin T •  C 17:44, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
Ok, the lang code page doesn't show any of those when i open it only shows zh .... welp..I think Ill have to redo them. Now I'm going create pages with "/zh-hant" with Category: zh-hant translation at the bottom of each page! Sorry about the miscreations under zh-TW, please delete them with /zh-TW.--Wei2Awesome (talk) 21:43, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
I see you're creating the pages, great! That's the first step. The next step is to actually translate the content of those pages into Chinese. --Alianin T •  C 22:05, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

That's the confusing part, do I translate them or admin like you going auto-translate with program and I edit them if there's errors? I can totally translate them (in fact all the pages) except I need clarification on who's going to translate. Also do I keep create more pages with /zh-hant marker (once translation is complete on the one that's marked) or I can just create page in zh-hant for pages that's not yet associate with zh-hant sub? Thx!--Wei2Awesome (talk) 22:45, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

  • It'd be you translating, we generally tend to shy away from autotranslating and defer to people who are more familiar with the language. - Wagnike2 (talk) 19:00, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
There is no autotranslation, unless you count copying the text into Google Translate. :D You or someone else will need to manually translate the pages. --Alianin T •  C 19:10, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
Got it, I will translate them and put them on the page I created such as No Man Sky Wiki/zh-hant accordingly ? Then you guys will make them into sub-domain and delete these temp pages? correct? :D --Wei2Awesome (talk) 19:29, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
Correct! --Alianin T •  C 20:34, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Translation to Brazilian Portuguese (17 February 2019)[edit source]

Hi, i'm brazilian and our NMS wiki it's actually pretty sad. There are just 691 pages and 235 articles and no one edit anything for months. With the multiplayer there a lot of new brazilian players and most people don't speak english here, so i was wondering if we can translate the English NMS wiki.

I saw here in your page a German and a Chinese guy asking to do a translation, but how does that work? The translate pages will be in the old brazilian wiki or I have to create a new one?

--Verticalringsofuranus (talk) 23:42, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your question about the Brazilian translation. Sorry to say, but there is no automatic page translation built in to a wiki.
However, if you want to take current English pages and do the translation into Portuguese, that would be greatly appreciated. Ddfairchild (talk) 16:41, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Making French No Man's Sky wiki (22 August 2019)[edit source]

Hello there, I'm a french guy and I wanna help you to translate english wiki into french wiki (for the french community). The problem is that I don't know how I can create the french wiki, so please can you help me ? Thank you very much, on behalf of French No Man's Sky Community :) IndiGanGaming (talk) 20:01, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

French is my native language. I could help, but I'm a beginner like you!-BowiQC (talk) 20:27, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
The wheels have been set in motion for a French version, and it should be in place sometime tomorrow. Please note that there is no automatic translation available; you will need to take each page and do the translations. I applaud your willingness to help out - merci beaucoup! I'll put a note on your profile page once it's ready. Ddfairchild (talk) 01:17, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
A branch for a French wiki has been created, here's the url: https://nomanssky-fr.gamepedia.com/No_Man%27s_Sky_Wiki . We just ask you go ahead and translate at least the main page using the translation guidelines and a couple other pages for starters. Let me know if you have any questions - thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 14:33, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
Oh thank you very much, I go now edit this new wiki. Thanks a lot ! I just started to begin the translation :) IndiGanGaming (talk) 21:48, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
