I was wondering if you all needed the sandbox wiki here any longer. Looks like the last edit may have been from February, and it looks like it might be impacting SEO here :P There's no way we can tell good 'ol Google bot to stop crawling it.
Our first impression is, "Yes, we like the clone wiki as it is a tool we use commonly when pursuing large projects, but we have questions regarding its SEO impact." In what ways is NotWarframe impacting SEO? Is this a new issue? Are there any other choices besides removing/deleting it that could alleviate some of the SEO issues? We have found the clone wiki quite useful in teaching ourselves how to utilize bots, LUA scripts, .js/themes, and other large scale projects in the past without impacting our live wiki. So even without recent use, it is still a valuable resource when we do want to implement large projects.
Ahh ok, if it's of significant concern we could probably throw up a global banner saying something along the lines of "You are on a sandbox wiki used for testing purposes only, please visit the real wiki at <>!" or something, but if it's not of big concern, then cool :)
So i saw a user move around or delete some information on a page and it looked like vandalism so i reverted the edit and looked at the page, however the info was still fragmented and stuff, as if my reverted edit didn't do a thing. Not really sure what to do, probably just a brain fart.
I'm a bit unnerved that despite being vacant on this wiki for like, two months, i was not put on the inactive administrations list, even though i also had a note on my profile saying i was basically out of commission.
Further was two erroneous blogs that were marked for deletion but still not removed.
Edit: also what happened to the old polls page? I was going to backup the poll before editing, did we remove that page?
Inactive/Active is kind of for the users to set for themselves, we don't really have any standard set for it. Like, I don't even edit on the wiki anymore, but am pretty much always available on the Discord and check my notifications pretty daily. Flaicher/Email set themselves active or not on and off as they go through busy seasons and such. I don't think we set anybody to active without their own request except for when we first made the list and those admins were inactive from first conception of the list.
Mark for Deletion has no notification, so unless somebody is stalking it or nagging for attention, it's not surprising it gets overlooked. Apparently they weren't bad enough for any of the mods to ping for attention on the Discord? Do you have links for them? I wouldn't mind taking a look at what got overlooked.
Which old polls page? I'm not sure I'm familiar with it to begin with, sorry :c
Ah well it was blogs from last month that have been on the front page since then, and they were not blog material at all, surely some admin or mod would check the blog pages right? Yikes. As for the Old polls page, for whatever reason it now shows up when i click the link, and i am 100% sure it claimed the page didn't exist before. Anyways, it's Old Polls.
To be honest I never look at the front page unless I need to find the Admin list to link to somebody (because it has a weird page name and I can never remember the exact syntax), lol. Normally I just go straight to whatever page I'm looking for; even on public computers I'll load straight to my profile page because it loads faster. I think I'll add it to my list of things I generally take a glance at.
Do we typically follow the articles and short words don't get capitalized in a title rule on the rest of the wiki? If so, are "Man" and "The Wall" proper nouns/names? If yes to both, leave it, if no to the second, lowercase "the Wall," and if no to both... then what standard _do_ we use? Glancing through section titles on The War Within, it looks like "yes to both," but I can't think of many/any other pages with long titles.
My personal vote would be to follow the rule, which just leave "is 'The Wall' a proper noun, or do we need to lower-case-ify the 'the'"
Hmm, i was just mentioning this as we do seem to generally Capitalize each word in the titles of pages, but i am unsure if this is due to a lack of "articles, prepositions, or coordinating conjunctions" in the titles themselves, or due to a rule we are following.
