This noticeboard is a location to discuss and coordinate administrative tasks for the Battlestar Wiki.
It is our hope that this place can serve as a location for administrators to coordinate their efforts on the maintenance tasks of the Wiki (it's not ALL fun and games), as well as a spot for our contributors to be able to bring things to the attention of the admins if something needs to be done. Need a protected page edited? An article or picture deleted? Admins will watchlist this page so that your request won't get lost in the shuffle.

Improperly Archived Talk Pages
I'm seeing a lot of archived pages in the Talk namespace with "/Archive 1" appended to their names, where the corresponding unprefixed Talk page does not exist. It looks like someone mass-archived talk pages and neglected to create new talk pages or an archive index. I suggest that we move these pages back to their unprefixed titles, with a bot or mass edit tool if possible. --April Arcus (talk) 19:59, 12 April 2020 (PDT)
- This was caused by the initial deployment of the StructuredDiscussions extension. It should've provided a link the "archive" from the main "talk" page, but it didn't deploy that. I'm seeing about a means to rectify that. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 14:17, 13 April 2020 (PDT)
