This wiki needs administrators or moderators who will actively monitor and maintain the wiki.

I think we can all agree that in the wiki's current state, anyone could just waltz right in and cause havoc if they so desired.

The most recent disruptive user that I know about has just been banned, at least. So apparently there are steps taken if the right person knows about something.

User moderation

A user by the name of Lxm6 has been in constant fights with SirYodaJedi. This is supposed to be a wiki of modders that help other modders, but it is increasingly becoming another drama hole. It should be clear that action needs to be taken on one or both of these accounts and moderators should be appointed. These actions are completely inappropriate for this wiki and should not continue.

Two request - Changing username and spam filter issue on YT link template.

leonidakarlach0:23, 30 August 2023 (UTC+7)
Simple request.

1. Change my username to LeonidaKarlach
2. Fix the spam filter on the {{Youtube/doc}} (documentation subpage for YouTube link templates), adding any video links or playlist link examples would trigger spam filter, due to this, I had to comment out the rest of the example temporarily. EDIT: the second one was partially solved by using full domains, but the links remain blocked.

Counter-Strike 2 Workshop tools and the sidebar

As Counter-Strike 2 and its workshop tools are now released could the admins put it on the sidebar like every other Workshop toolkit/SDK.

User Style CSS

Please add User Style CSS to this MediaWiki so that nobody has to edit Common.css to fix the style issues when editing or using search.

Troll/spam account Viktini324

Equalizer9:06, 17 October 2023 (UTC−7)
The user Viktini324 has been trolling on the Talk:Counter-Strike 2 page, and in recent edit history has only edited talk pages with insulting or improper content [1], along with creating useless pages [2].

I saw his activity, and I am also against it! He offers stupid ideas and creates unnecessary spam pages. Can this account be reported as spam? I didn’t notice any useful edits on his part.

Got some evidence of use of slurs.
Sucks people like this exist, hate breeds hate

Yeap, you can do this, but only for templates (such as {{User page}}, {{Message}}, etc.) and your user page (this wiki does not allow you to change your username). Read the documentation for {{User settings page}} and write all the parameters you need on your settings subpage.
Tip.pngTip:If you don't have a settings subpage, you can use the "Create your settings page" section in the previously provided documentation.
Note.pngNote:You already did this, but I'll write this message in case someone has the same question and is looking for an answer here.

Wake up Valve admins - Ban trolls such as User:HaammerEditoor.

leonidakarlach19:45, 31 March 2024 (UTC+7)
Reposted to correct page this time. Anyway this wiki is becoming more like TF2 bot problem and for days, User:HaammerEditoor (unknown whether this is a sock of User:HammerEditor, but it could be another user/troll), previously vandalized several pages and causing Template:Sdktools to briefly not load (timed out), most likely an attempt to DDOS/XSS, the same user later also trolls various users on this wiki, with sarcastic apology. Valve/wiki admins should do something about this.
