The interface for the announcements tool.

Shortcut:
TES:ANNOUNCE

Announcements are important messages sent by administrators or moderators to any user who has made an edit, upvote, or post on TESWiki in the past 90 days. Acting as a replacement for the 2.0 Forums' highlight tool, which notified all users on a wiki of a thread (regardless of activity), announcements went live in an early test on TESWiki on 12 July 2018.

Usage[]

The tool can be accessed by admins and mods from this link. Please try not to send more than one announcement per week unless some really big news breaks. Users can disable announcements from specific wikis with the AnnouncementsIgnore script.

If any negative activity trends are to be inferred from this data, it is important to place the hypothesized cause of the trend 90 days prior to the announcements. For example, the decrease in users from August 4th, 2018 to September 1st, 2018 was caused by decreasing user input on the wiki three months before then (May–June), not anything that happened between August and September. Positive activity trends are not subject to such delay.

Notes[]

  1. The title of this thread was changed to "Weekly Update 8/17/19" shortly after its announcement.
  2. On October 17th, an additional announcement was made by The Cat Master with an improved link. This announcement went to 2052 recipients.
  3. 3.0 3.1 Originally, the weekly updates for the weeks of February 8 and February 15, 2020 were combined into one weekly update called "Weekly Update 2/15/20 (and 2/8/20)." The weekly updates for the two weeks were separated into individual weeks on February 18, 2020.
  4. The announced text for 4/18/20 was indeed "Wekly Update" and not "Weekly Update," on account of Atvelonis's limited observational skills.
  5. 5.0 5.1 Due to a miscommunication, two announcements of this weekly update were made.
  6. It was decided to alter the date format in order to not confuse non-Americans, to which the weekly update was titled as 2020-08-15; however, since Ottoman Hold did not notice at first, the announcement was made using the original format as 8/15/20.
  7. 7.0 7.1 Due to backlog, these two updates were released on the same day; both were given announcements less than five hours apart.
  8. 8.0 8.1 8.2 With the staff's approval, Stygies VIII was able to use her Wiki Representative role to highlight these weekly updates after their creation when other staff were unavailable. This allowed for the community to see them quicker than if it was decided to wait for an administrator or moderator to become available some time later.
  9. Because he is blissfully unaware of the intricacies of the Gregorian Calendar, Ottoman Hold made the announcement with the date 2021-04-11 instead of the proper 2021-04-10.
  10. 10.0 10.1 10.2 10.3 10.4 10.5 10.6 10.7 10.8 10.9 Due to backlog, these updates were released off-schedule in order to catch up. Announcements were made for each after a bit of time had passed from the previous.
