Forums > Senate Hall archive > "Report a problem"

Hi All. Wikia have made a new feature that may be useful to you. It's a link/tab on each article to "report a problem". This leads to a small form that can be used to give information on what's wrong. Admins then have a special page that allows them to mark each as fixed, not a problem, or to flag it for Wikia staff. The idea is to catch all the people that don't know enough about wikis yet to fix things themselves, or how to find admins to help them. At the moment, we get email from people with problems that would much better be addressed by local admins, maybe this will help fix that!

So, this will be enabled shortly and is on Inside Wikia now. Please have a look at it, try it out, and let us know whether it's something you want. The reports page is at Special:ProblemReports and the link/tab is on each article page. If this won't be helpful to you, we can disable it for your wiki. All feedback gratefully received!

  • I think this sounds great, and I'd be all for at least trying it out. --Imperialles 15:22, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Will this be on all skins or just the new-style ones? -- Darth Culator (Talk) 15:38, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
    • It seems to be working with Inside Wikia's Monobook skin. --Imperialles 19:14, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
      • Yes, it works with monobook, both on the reporting and report sides. There is a matching widget for this, which gives links/summary of the report page, and that only works on the new skin of course. -- Sanns sock 18:24, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
