See GuildWiki_talk:Community_Portal#Admin_noticeboard_and_requests_for_comment. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 16:24, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

The topic that Barek refers to can only be found in the history here, it is not useful or possible to comment upon the Admin noticeboard there instead of here (but it was at the time that Barek wrote the comment), yet Viper feels that it is somehow important that this totally useless, misleading comment be left standing in its untainted glory. So be it, then. mendel 12:20, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
The fact is, we normally forbid people to remove comments, and as such I have reverted you. --- VipermagiSig-- (s)talkpage 12:22, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
The fact is, admins normally use common sense. mendel 12:33, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
I was using common sense; Treat one the same as the other. Point is: Don't remove comments, however wrong and old they are. Exceptions are bad, cause you can treat everything as an exception, and there'll eventually be no limit to deleting content, because it's an exception. --- VipermagiSig-- (s)talkpage 12:38, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Use your heads and just archive it. -- 12:39, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

It is not in any way useful to have an archive of that comment beyond what the wiki archives in its history anyway. mendel 12:50, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

You may never remove the comments of others, unless they are on your own talkpage or they are obviously spam/trolling/vandalism/etc. It does not matter how useless the comment may be. Besides, any intelligent user would see that the post was dated from October 2007. Entropy Sig (T/C) 23:23, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Why? (The intelligent user saw it and wondered what it might mean. Researched the issue, even, to the point of digging into the history of one of the most modified pages on the wiki. Uselessly, as it turned out. Tried to spare other intelligent users the same fate by removing what is essentially not a coment by nature, but a Soft Redirect. It seems that's a no-no. I'll take care to post stuff to talk pages only that I don't want to see deleted - I bet it's going to work better than to post it to articles.) mendel 00:15, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
Don't get trite with me. This is the way we have always done things here. The history of a page will preserve all comments, but removing something simply because it is inconvenient and not because the removal is necessary, contravenes the spirit of our copyright license. This is why we are not allowed to delete vast amounts of spam posts on talk pages, useless and unsightly and even possibly misleading as they may be. Entropy Sig (T/C) 00:23, 30 May 2008 (UTC)


Is there an archive for the Admin noticeboard? mendel 00:01, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Yes, the link is at the top of the page but kind of not very visible. Project:Admin noticeboard/Resolved. Old, old issues get moved there. Dunno about the talkpage, since no one ever commented here until just recently. Entropy Sig (T/C) 00:05, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
