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. 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.

Overly aggressive language filter

I'm not sure what was causing the rule to trigger, but I tried to add Tidehunter to the Phantom Lancer counter's page and it kept getting flagged for inappropriate language. I tried making several changes and couldn't get it to go through. I was just talking about Kraken Shell and Anchor Smash making him very difficult to damage with illusions and Ravage being effective AOE damage and disable. I was using correct formatting as far as I can tell. -- The preceding unsigned comment was added by ChrisLoven (talk) • (contribs) 22:30, 4 June 2019 • Please sign your posts with ~~~~

It appears that it is being triggered by the string combination of "sh|t" in
{{A|Anchor Smash|Tidehunter}}
. I can't really do anything about the filter myself as it's a global filter that applies to all gamepedia wikis, but I've raised with staff. Actually looking at the logs, it has been hitting many edits for the same reason before yours - never noticed. Apologies for the inconvenience, I'll add your edit to the page. -- -- Sanhard 08:30, 5 June 2019 (UTC)


Abaddon Talent addition not functioning

I'm attempting to update the Abaddon Hero page to show talent-scaled ability numbers in line like most other pages do. I started basically from the ground up since the page was building ability information straight from a dpl which mostly works fine. The part that doesn't work regardless of if I use the visual or source editor, is the calc command:

{{calc|v1+{{show|T|Abaddon|talent2left value}}|v1={{#show:#Mist Coil|?value3#}}}}

Instead of doing the calculation given, the page returns the following error:

Lua error in Module:Calculate at line 35: Unrecognized word "v" in expression "v1+75".

This is the way other pages sources seem to be formatted, so I'm curious if there is some other way these values have to be calculated or if I'm overlooking something. This is my first time editing with this much Lua so that seems very possible from my side.

Thanks for any clarification/help on this Technodude9000 (talk) 21:12, 29 June 2018 (UTC) Technodude9000

Because of Abaddon's abilities got separated to sub-pages like "Abaddon/Mist Coil", your variant wouldn't work. This one would:

{{calc|v1+{{show|T|Abaddon|talent2left value}}|v1={{#show:Abaddon/Mist Coil#Mist Coil|?value3#}}}}

But this is only for Abaddon, because his page is unique and, I think, because of testing purposes. Medok 21:24, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

Lua error of {{{Show|A|item name|valueX}}

We Cannot get the value of some abilities using the {{{Show|A|item name|valueX}}.

The values of three item's ability cannot be obtained: Shiva's Guard icon.png Shiva's Guard, Vladmir's Offering icon.png Vladmir's Offering and Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity, example:

{{show|A|Shiva's Guard|Freezing Aura|value2}} --> 45
{{Show|A|Vladmir's Offering|Vladmir's Aura|value5}} --> 3
{{show|A|Eul's Scepter of Divinity|Cyclone|value3}} --> 50

it does works on other items, like:

{{show|A|Scythe of Vyse|Hex|value3}} --> 3.5

It occur on following pages: Cyclone,Mana regeneration,Summons...

There should had been more pages with this error, but this problem was fixed by hand coding by previous editors including me (ie: type the value directly).

Or they change the {{{Show|A|item name|valueX}} into {{#var:Ability name valueX}} but it can only get the values of ability in same page. And the pages mentioned above cannot be fixed by that.

The same problem also occur in all the abilities of Nature's Prophet minimap icon.png Nature's Prophet like, it seems NP is the only hero suffering this problem:

{{show|A|Nature's Prophet|Nature's Call|value3}} --> 2/3/4/5
{{show|A|Nature's Prophet|Sprout|value3}} --> 3/4/5/6

Same problem in Warlock Golem of Warlock minimap icon.png Warlock:

{{show|A|Warlock Golem|Flaming Fists|value1}} --> 300

and they should work like:

{{show|A|Crystal Maiden|Crystal Nova|value3}} --> 130/170/210/260

This is an ongoing battle with apostrophes. As you may have noticed all of the problematic ones contain one (Nature's Prophet). Cargo does not like stuff like line breaks and apostrophes. This may take longer to fix, it's a very deep issue. Molldust (talk) 10:39, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

Lua errors when referencing Aghanim's values from ability tables

A good example is Forged_Spirit. It cross-references Invoker's Forge Spirit ability multiple times for the unit box's Duration, Health, etc. however, the "aghs" values are not found from the Invoker's ability table, despite displaying correctly when viewing that table directly. The custom lookup is partly working, as the Aghanim's icon is being shown when these calls are made, however the corresponding Value is always missing. Damage_manipulation#Stacking_damage_reduction_.26_amplification for another example involving a different page.


Resulting appearance is:

| duration = 20/30/40/50/60/70/80 | duration aghs = /90


While affected tables may not contain apostrophes, it seems possible that the apostrophe in Aghanim's Scepter is affecting the custom lookup code. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.69.222.188 (talk) • (contribs) • Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Outdated Training Page & Addition of New Player Objectives

As the training page is out of date, can I start updating the page to the best of my abilities? Or would that be considered vandalism? I don't think I can update the whole page in a day but I'm ready to devote few hours daily until I get done with it.

Easier said than done. Valve never gave any real information regarding turn rates, so all we can do here is estimate until someone really dedicates some time to it and figures it all out.

Permission to Add stories

This is Venz. I need a Permission to edit some pages regarding the events to add some stories like starting from Nemestice and throwing back into the early days of DOTA 2. Trailer wise.

You don't need to ask for permissions here, as long as it is something about Dota and it is something official, you can add them here. If something is out of lines, it can be decided later on.
We still have nothing about Nemestice on the wiki (the lore part and the game mode), which is bad. ~~ Bu3ny (Talk)

About the tabber I added on Dragon Knight's lore page

So I tried adding a tabber to Dragon Knight's lore page that allows the user to switch between Dragon Knight's depictions in Artifact and Dota: Dragon's Blood, but it seems to be messed up. The tabber looks fine, but I can't remove the two lines of text that appear above and below the tabber which includes these (remove the "a"): "[a[File:" and "|256px]a]". How do I fix this? Ecstasy Amphetamine (talk) 14:02, 22 July 2021 (UTC)

Yea, you gotta edit the template to allow multiple images, similar to the item infobox. You can't just put a tabber as a value. ~~ Bu3ny (Talk)
I made a draft on a test page, gonna implement it later. As for images names, we will be dividing them into 3 categories:
Main = Image from Dota 2, preferably some official artwork. (name the files "*topic* Lore.png")
Artifact = Image from Artifact, preferably the original card image (name the files "*topic* Artifact.png")
Anime = An image/screenshot from the anime
The main image should always be there, the artifact and anime images are optional. Also, the files should have a uniform name ("x Lore.png" for main, "x Artifact.png" for Artifact, "x Anime.png" for the show).
~~ Bu3ny (Talk)
Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. Please let me know when it's ready. Ecstasy Amphetamine (talk) 10:23, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

New format for Hero lore pages

I've been looking at the lore pages for heroes lately and I want to improve how they look, because they are very lacking right now. My new format aims to cover every section of lore from a hero's bio, spell descriptions, cosmetic lore, voice lines, and other lore related to them. I didn't add any infobox to the drafts because it seems fine at the moment. What does everyone else think?

New pages for a hero's lore in Dragon's Blood

So I was making a header for the lore of Invoker in Dragon's Blood and in the middle of making it, I realized that his current Lore page would be too small to contain the amount of lore that he has in the animated series.

I was thinking if he would have a separate page like how his profile as sections for cosmetics, responses, lore, etc. but this section would be simply named Dragon's Blood or Anime if that's the correct term (e.g. Invoker/Dragon's Blood or Invoker/Anime). The new page I'm proposing will have similar contents to his Lore page like Personality, Relationships, Biography, etc. with some differences like the responses section being replaced with notable quotes from the series.

What does everyone think? I'm willing to make these myself when I get to it. Ecstasy Amphetamine (talk) 18:40, 17 August 2021 (UTC)

New sections for lore

I want to make a new section of the Lore page to cover stuff like types of magic and fighting styles (ex. Pugna's Arts of Oblivion, CM's Frozen Arts, Juggernaut's sword play and voodoo magic, Ember Spirit's mantra, etc.) and I'm planning on naming it either Traditions or maybe Arts or even both.

I'm also planning to make another new section from existing lore pages found in the Others section by making sections for Events (this covers what it says in its name) and Resources (covers stuff like Radiant Ore, Direstone, Chronite, Wraith Essence, etc.). The Others section will still remain to cover miscellaneous and vague lore. How do I do that? Ecstasy Amphetamine (talk) 09:55, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

I added traditions, events, and resources the lore infobox and created the navboxes. You can put traditions/events/resources as a type now in the infobox. I already did it for Radiant Ore and Direstone. ~~ Bu3ny (Talk)
