Welcome to the Noticeboard!

The Noticeboard is used for reporting anything that needs Administrator/Bureaucrat action or attention, or to bring things to the attention of the entire Scratchpad community, good or bad. Such reports include, but are not limited to, sock puppetry, vandalism, deadlines and backlogs, Administrator requests, or an idea you have that you want to share with the Community.

For community help, where users can ask questions about Scratchpad, or obtain assistance from other editors, go to User help.

In short, this page is a noticeboard for posting anything that users think the rest of the Scratchpad community needs to know or should be discussed.

FireTrainThomas01 & Frozen parodies

I need you to block FireTrainThomas01, please, because I did not want him to edit anymore Frozen parodies! — Wadeagnew90 (talk) 18:45, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment Administrator Note: It does not work that way. So long as your personal, well-identified, cast lists are not being edited or vandalized, anyone can edit Frozen parodies. In fact, some of the pages you’ve complained about before have not even been edited by you, so how could they be yours? So, next time, give us specific examples to look at, and then we will deal with appropriately. Face-smile Thanks!SpikeToronto 22:39, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

Help! I can't edit Divergent/Tiny Toons Adventures page!!!

Yes check Resolved: Both Divergent (2014)/Tiny Toons Adventures and Category:Divergent (2014) parodies created on behalf of requestor.SpikeToronto 10:18, December 26, 2014 (UTC)
This request was based on a spelling error. Toons — plural — should be Toon — singular. Therefore, I have renamed the pages created to their correctly spelled names; i.e., ToonsToon. All, entries made to the Titlewhitelist regarding this request have been reverted.— SpikeToronto 16:27, December 27, 2014 (UTC)

I want to create parody of Divergent/Tiny Toons Adventures, but, when i click "Edit Intro", it can't opened because it say that it already restricted. Somebody, please help me!!! I want to edited this as soon as possible! —The preceding unsigned comment was made by Petuniabunny178 (talkcontribs) 03:01, December 24, 2014 (UTC).

Yes check Resolved. As the warning message you received indicated, “tiny toons” is on Scratchpad’s title blacklist. In order, therefore, for the page to be created, there were three choices:
  1. have an Administrator create the page since their sysop editing privileges bypass the title blacklist
    • this gets the page created, but non-sysops would still not be able to edit it
  2. remove “tiny toons” from the title blacklist
    • this gets the page created, but this would also permit the “tiny toons” pagemove vandalism that so plagues other wikis
  3. add the exact title to the title whitelist
    • this permits any auto-confirmed account to create the page (which I have already done with my auto-confirmed test account)
Please see discussion at MediaWiki talk:Titleblacklist#Divergent/Tiny Toons Adventures for more information. — SpikeToronto 10:18, December 26, 2014 (UTC)

I was to publish American Dad/Thomas Parodies - Featuring Bob Memari and Roger but there comes up a warning and it won't publish. Please Help me

Update Community Portal

Currently to to-do list found here is pretty much like any other. I think adding the process of fixing categories would be good to add. ~Curiouscrab (talk) 01:25, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

Sure!Face-smile Why don’t you draft a new version of that section of the page, and place it here for review? Face-smile Thanks!SpikeToronto 03:24, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

Blocked categories

When I'm editing my The Best of Toon Disney page, "An automated filter has identified this edit as containing one of several blocked categories. For that reason, that filter has prevented you Publishing your edit. You will not be able to Publish until you remove that category.". So can you please delete my page for reason, when I frustrated to publish my page? —The preceding unsigned comment was made by SuperCartoonBrony2000 (talkcontribs) 18:30, November 21, 2016‎ (UTC).

Ambox notice UPDATE: Oh, nevermind. So the editing of my page is back to normal. :) SuperCartoonBrony2000 (talk) 20:07, November 21, 2016 (UTC)

@SCB2000: I am sorry that that happened to you. That warning is triggered by our blocked category abuse filter (Special:AbuseFilter/4). Yet, when I checked your last two publish attempts that triggered that notice, the categories on either side of the transaction are not listed as blocked in the filter’s list of conditions. So, that warning should not have popped up.
Another related thing we have is a category blacklist. But, that list just prevents categories listed there from appearing in the list of possible choices when you are adding categories to a page: It is not supposed to trigger that warning. So, I’ll pass this issue on to some other Wikians whose expertise in this area is greater than mine. Face-smile Thank you for your patience!SpikeToronto 17:48, November 26, 2016 (UTC)

Blockes categories

I want to do a mini wiki on The Jihad to Destroy Barney. Jihad should not be on the blocklist because it is a fake jihad I am talking about. Thank you for understanding that this was a whole thing back in 1993 I want to revive for people against Barney. Again, this is not a real jihad and it's part of a role playing game.

Mr. Tickle wants to be Roger Rabbit

Mr. Chatterbox wants to be Eddie Valiant

I can't save my pages because the filter says it contains potentially inappropriate language.

The filter says my pages contain inappropriate language. One of the characters from the EarthBound series has a name that sounds similar to the term for excerment. I don't consider it to be inappropirate. KevinTimMeredith

Please help me

Why can't I publish? Pellesekin

J can't put my Ranma 1/2 categories back!

Ignore the Phillip Van D**e

B*stard Greyhawk wiki

Every time I try to create a new page containing the name of my wiki (such as with an info box) it gets blocked for "Inappropriate language." This wiki has been around for over 10 years. The word isn't intended as an insult or to be vulgar, it's simply used to acknowledge the campaign is not canonical.--ElB (talk) 02:35, October 30, 2018 (UTC)

  • This also happens when editing pages already in existence that already contain the word "b*stard." Please resolve.--ElB (talk) 02:49, October 30, 2018 (UTC)
