OOjs UI icon globe.svgStewards' noticeboard
This noticeboard is only for requests that require Stewards', or, in a limited number of circumstances, Global Sysops' intervention. If in doubt, please try the Community noticeboard first, and you will be directed here if the matter requires a Steward.

On the Stewards' noticeboard, you can request...

  • ...a Steward or Global Sysop lock a spam only or vandalism only account. Note that for vandalism only accounts, the vandalism must meet the global standard definition for vandalism and to be a vandalism only account, there must be no or almost no constructive editing behaviour and, additionally, this behaviour should be occurring on multiple wikis
  • ...additional permissions on your wiki(s) that can only be granted by a Steward, such as local interwiki administrator following a successful election
  • ...a page requiring the bigdelete user right (more than 1,000 revisions) be deleted on your wiki
  • ...a Dormancy Policy exemption for your wiki

or report...

  • ...a Username Policy violation (whether in good-faith or bad faith)
  • ...a user suspected of abusing multiple accounts per the User accounts policy. You must link to specific revisions from both the suspected master and illegitimate alternate account(s)
  • ...systemic Code of Conduct problems occurring by one or more user(s) on one or more wiki(s) and/or systemic Content Policy violations on one or more wiki(s). In either case, your report must link to specific revisions and, in the latter case, your report must be both thorough and comprehensive

If you would like to request...

Please remember to:

  • Sign your request using ~~~~

Unread mail?

I sent an email to stewards at seven days ago and it still hasn't gotten a response. I consider the matter somewhat urgent and I am disappointed that it has taken so long for an answer. Wpetoi (talk) 19:16, 29 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Wpetoi: (edit conflict) We are volunteers, but if this is regarding a Code of Conduct-related issue, you might send a short follow-up e-mail to stewards(at) asking for an expected timeline on when a decision will be made as to whether to investigate your complaint. Once they've given you that (it shouldn't take more than 30 days, I should think) and the decision thus rendered, you have the Code of Conduct Commission available to you as an appeal venue. If this is not related to a Code of Conduct-related issue, you may DM me on Discord the particulars, and I will follow up with a steward privately on the same and try and find out an expected resolution timeframe for you. Hope this helps. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 19:21, 29 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, I did send it to the correct email, and it is a Code of Conduct violation. I don't see how a followup email would help? Wpetoi (talk) 19:23, 29 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Wpetoi: (edit conflict) It sounds like the resolution has taken place, but you weren't notified, which may have just been an oversight. So, I will {{ping}} @Void: to this thread. Dmehus (talk) 19:24, 29 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Resolution? The bans are still in place as of now. If you're referring to my previous message, I took it down on purpose :P Wpetoi (talk) 19:30, 29 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Wpetoi: The blocks are locally imposed blocks. I can't speak to the fairness of their local blocking policy (to the extent one even exists), but there's little stewards can do here in that regard. I would suggest you maybe point out the most egregious block summaries that contravene the Code of Conduct, and it may be possible for a steward to unblock & reblock you under the same conditions and terms with a cleaner block summary, revision deleting the previous block's block summary. That's likely the best case resolution in this case, as far as I can tell. You could also propose a two-way global interaction ban between yourself and any of the major local actors on that wiki on community noticeboard. If the community agreed, and you'd have to provide some detailed background information and context, it would only be appealable to the Miraheze community. If they blocked you, they would be in violation of that community-imposed interaction ban, so stewards would be empowered to act. Likewise, if you did the same to any of them, you would, too, be in violation. Dmehus (talk) 20:10, 29 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus: Still no response. My initial message was mostly focused on code of conduct violations, so I still fail to see how sending a second email would help. I personally believe that blocking a user from editing a wiki without being prompted violates multiple points in the Code of Conduct, but I suppose it isn't my job to determine that. The user Hookuai has also attempted to harass me with pictures of gore through various outlets, all of which I have blocked them from using to contact me one way or another. I haven't mentioned that yet, but I figured I'd mention it now. Wpetoi (talk) 17:57, 12 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Wpetoi: Where's proof Hookaui sent pictures of gore? Because there is no evidence, and you keep lying. @Dmehus:, I would like to alert you because Wpetoi isn't trustworthy. He keeps lying then taking the victim card. AppleCrunchy (talk) 20:10, 12 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @Wpetoi and AppleCrunchy: From my perspective as a non-steward, this isn't likely an issue that's going to be resolved on the basis of one user's report of other users. There are problems involving many users on the Reception wikis, and so, there's no real clear answers here. All I can suggest is you maintain exhaustive logs and summaries of events, links to relevant diffs, so that you have some evidence to submit to stewards if and when this becomes a wider ranging case. Dmehus (talk) 20:42, 12 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Close this wiki

A Nazi wiki, well it has no content yet, but as the wiki's name says and welcome page says it wants to promote Nazism.

Close it before its being used for those things. OPMAN (talk) 12:59, 1 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@OPMAN: Miraheze values freedom of speech and diversity of views. Unless there are serious violations of the Code of Conduct or Content Policy, a wiki promoting a political ideology, regardless of how extreme, is highly unlikely to be shut down. In short, if you see those serious violations, you must link to each violation directly, preferably in a list format, in order for a steward to investigate. Dmehus (talk) 13:57, 1 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Disgusted and disappointed and here I thought the term "hate speech" in Content Policy actually meant something. OPMAN (talk) 14:46, 1 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@OPMAN: "Hate speech" does "mean something." What I'm saying is, unless you can show, directly, specific examples of threats or egregious, hateful speech towards a group of people or individual persons, then there's little stewards can do. There's nothing in Content Policy that prevents informational, or even avocational wikis, discussing or criticizing one or more political ideologies (which include Nazi socialism, fascism, anarchism, and similar). Hope that makes sense. Dmehus (talk) 15:00, 1 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
In my view, as long as it is a historical wiki and is solely there for documenting facts and remains neutral, there should not be any issues. But if it makes certain claims against specific groups of people or such, in that case that should be investigated. Please let us know if there are specific instances of that. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:33, 1 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Reception123: Why limit it to historical, though? I think the key is neutrality, and the views being advocated. That is, a Nazism wiki that advocates hateful acts against one or more groups of people would not be okay whereas an informational wiki outlining the broad strokes ideologies, current or historical, in a compare and contrast-type format would probably be okay. It's really context specific, but yes, in any case, the requestor's report does not meet the requirements for an investigation. Dmehus (talk) 15:39, 1 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, my main issue is for it to advocate hateful acts, or perhaps call groups of people "inferior" to others, which would be discrimination. I would like to point out a previous discussion on this matter that is about a similar topic. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:40, 1 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@OPMAN: Christ dude, you really want to get my empty wiki banned based on the Main Page? - National Socialist Friendo (talk) 16:40, 10 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I'm going to be BOLD here and say this won't be done. Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 16:47, 10 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, gratefully, National Socialist Friendo (talk) 18:47, 12 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Lock me

I don't need this account anymore, this was an account to ask for bot permission (to lock people with terrible usernames) but my request got declined. So this account is useless now. Account operated by @Tom191: NameBot (talk) 16:06, 8 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

8b8t closing

8b8t wiki is not even doing anything, outside miraheze nobody is even trying to do anything about it, so im thinking that it should shut down. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 16:23, 9 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Request for steward mediation between QwertyMan'65 and Portrock1566

Please unblock me, because portrock1566 blocked me for indefinite time, so i can do fun for my pleasure, please i admitted him portrock1566 is a traitor of me, i used to be a shitposter consisting of political satire, and goes awry with the posting of mocking george floyd and the beirut explosion, while at first glance in my discord server of the outcast network and toxic fandom and hate wiki, i used malnourished kid just for joke. I am innocent person. QwertyMan'65 (talk) 01:15, 14 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

"The block was made by ‪Portrock1566‬. The reason given is Considering that you once had a profile picture of a malnourished kid and that you posted a Beirut Explosion (which is news flash, offensive) meme on Discord. I don't trust you in the slightest. Not to mention you're such a creep for trying to befriend me, You however can plead innocent on your discussion page. EDIT: Oh fuck it I'll leave your punishment indefinite for now.." QwertyMan'65 (talk) 01:15, 14 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

portrock1566 is a traitor. stop admin brutality. i am also being blocked on unfavorable wikis and users wiki too. — Preceding unsigned comment added by QwertyMan'65 (talkcontribs) 12:12, 10 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@QwertyMan'65: Thank you for your post, and welcome to Meta. Please do try and remember to sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~). It looks you tried to, actually, but you originally included your signature in the section header of your post. Please avoid putting the bulk of your noticeboard and talk page posts in section headers. This looks to me like a local dispute, and you're questioning a local block on a Reception wiki. This is normally outside of steward purview; however, they, strictly in their capacity as a Miraheze community member, or another established Miraheze community member, may be willing to mediate this dispute in a neutral location (i.e., on one of your user talk pages, or on the mediator's user talk page), but this would only be possible if both you and Portrock1566 agree to the mediation as we currently have no capacity to impose mandatory mediation (though there may be merits to such a proposal in the future, given the number of two-party disputes we are seeing; the trouble with these proposals, though, is finding enough willing volunteers). Dmehus (talk) 14:24, 10 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • Hello, I fixed this four tildes. I fixed my statements that deemed too long or complex, can you unblock me in atrocious youtubers and unfavorable wikis and users wiki? QwertyMan'65 (talk) 02:35, 11 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • Hello steward, look! Portrock1566 blocked me forever across the reception wiki families for not being receptive while attempting to rehabilitate to me, and then, he call my grammar a "shitty as fucking hell", how spiteful an admin to abuse a weaker older new user. Please help me, to rehabilitate become a better person, please excuse my bad grammar because I'm lived in Indonesia, Portrock1566 is spiteful as antagonist. I need help from stewards to rehabilitate my life in order to get unblocked across all the reception wiki families, and the Discord servers of the same name. I hope the god (allah) will be give a good advice towards an unbeliever (portrock1566). I want to change of heart with these stewards while being affectionally care about my situation. I am a victim of abusive infinite block. My religion is Islam, so I believe to God (Allah). QwertyMan'65 (talk) 05:29, 13 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    Stop denying your wrongdoings Qwerty. We know what you did. - —M—3–M—3–G—U—Y_W@S_L0$T 01:00, 14 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    @—M—3–M—3–G—U—Y_W@S_L0$T, What's wrong with my denying my wrongdoings? I can't find my truth about this! You have been no accountability while you saying me "denied wrongdoings" Stop being narcist @—M—3–M—3–G—U—Y_W@S_L0$T, I'm trying to be altruistic and get a public apology in the community, well Portrock did have a bad side with me (wrongful block), when Portrock mostly has a good sides. I some work with trusted person help.QwertyMan'65 (talk) 01:23, 14 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    Portrock blocking you wasn’t “admin brutality” - —M—3–M—3–G—U—Y_W@S_L0$T 02:12, 14 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    Hello @Lamborghini446, this not attempt to not global Portrock because I just tell to their stewards to give advice towards him, not global block! you say "He has a good reason to block him" yet Portrock is still a pessimist and occasionally a dehumanizer towards me. Portrock's reason to block me was mixed; some says that this is a bad move while others this is still good move.
    Portrock's reason to block me virtually had no admin accountability, and he need to find out why @QwertyMan'65 needs rehabilitation. Also @Lamborghini446, you don't be rude to me, because if you are an suspected affiliate with Portrock, then you need take a rest for a while because my steward is remedying my mistakes in order apoligize the community. You must noticing my mistakes that i will be issued a public apology. In my other words: Portrock's block decision was mixed meaning they have divided tastes. QwertyMan'65 (talk) 01:15, 14 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    I think it's no use replying to this topic now. Because Summary: QwertyMan is playing the victim card in this topic, saying Portrock dehumanized him when he brought this to himself by posting offensive "political satire" and had a malnourished child as a pfp and used the "joke" excuse on why he did this.
    "I am innocent person" No you're not. Lamborghini446 (talk) 01:39, 14 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    Oh, I forgot something:
    "Portrock did have a bad side with me (wrongful block)" - It was a rightful one. You're just playing the victim card here Qwerty. Lamborghini446 (talk) 01:44, 14 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────@MeMeGuYWasLost and Lamborghini446: First, to both of you, you are both unnamed third parties in what is a steward request by @QwertyMan'65: for mediation by either (a) a steward or (b) an uninvolved community volunteer on Meta to mediate and, hopefully, resolve a local dispute between him and Portrock1566. While you can comment, your comments should be both (a) helpful and (b) able to add something of value. Your comments do neither of these things. Moreover, they don't even address what QwertyMan'65 is even requesting. Thus, these are non-helpful third party peanut gallery-type comments, as I said on @Lamborghini446:'s user talk page. I strongly recommend you cease participation in this thread, if all you are going to do is continue what is a local dispute onto Meta. Finally, I would remind you both that civility is required on Meta. To Lamborghini446, you have an important note from me on your user talk page requiring your written on-wiki acknowledgment. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 03:22, 14 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Cant Log In To My Account

Recently my account Waterman signed in to the wiki, but however, when I tried to sign in to this wiki in order to adopt a closed wiki, I had to log in, but when I tried to login, it didn't work, it only worked on the 8b8t wiki. so that's why I'm here today.

So since I couldn't Login, I decided to tell the noticeboard. IP editor 15:41, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

@IP editor:, can you please e-mail your request to tech(at), if the problem is technical in nature, and stewards(at), if the problem is not? If you are unsure, use the first of the two. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 16:02, 10 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Please globally lock these accounts for vandalism on a dead Roblox wiki

There's a user going around vandalizing pages on Abysmal Roblox Games Wiki and I believe the same user is abusing multiple accounts.

Here's some evidence of this user vandalizing pages on Abysmal Roblox Games Wiki:

And here are his possible alt accounts:

And also, I caught another vandal on that same wiki vandalizing the main page by renaming it to "YOU SUCK!", which obviously counts as vandalism. Here's some evidence:

Exemption dormancy policy for Vaccabolario wiki

Hi stewards,

I'm the Vaccabolario wiki's bureucrat, asking the dormancy policy exemption as this wiki, being a Dictionary, is mostly made to be read (and, considering it's 99% text, it won't take much room on Miraheze's servers anyway).

I asked it in a recent past but, not seeing my wiki listed into Exemptions list, nor an approval/deny comment from you, I'm asking it again. (and again, and again, and again, ... as a matter of fact I'm posting the same request nearly every month: maybe at least one comment from you could be welcome sorry: didn't see @Dmehus comment on my July post, the reasons I expressed there are still valid, tho).

Thanks in advance,

Users are free to block users on their own wikis, and there is no reason for a steward to intervene in this case. "disrespecting his opinion" is not a reason for a global lock and does not violate any global policies. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:08, 14 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Login is not working

I can't login in my wiki

Sorry, but without login I can't add any screenshot for illustration of my problem.

Also I can't change laguage for you? this is only russian:

"Похоже, возникли проблемы с текущим сеансом работы; это действие было отменено в целях предотвращения «захвата сеанса». Пожалуйста, переотправьте форму."

It's very important for me by closed wiki.

I have this board in all pages:

"This wiki has no edits or logs made within the last 45 days, therefore it is marked as inactive. If you would like to prevent this wiki from being closed, please start showing signs of activity here. If there are no signs of this wiki being used within the next 15 days, this wiki may be closed per the Dormancy Policy. This wiki will then be eligible for adoption by another user. If not adopted and still inactive 135 days from now, this wiki will become eligible for deletion. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with Miraheze's Dormancy Policy. If there is activity on this wiki you can go to Special:ManageWiki and uncheck "inactive" yourself. If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask at Stewards' noticeboard."

Inactivity exemption for educational Wiki(s)

Hello, I have a series of Wikis used for a world design class I taught over the summer. My students put in a lot of effort into their Wikis and are hoping to use their work on their portfolios. There is a main landing page and then several individual wikis for each student with X being number 1 to 14. Is it possible to get these sites with an inactivity exemption so students do not have to go and update the closed status every 6 months?

Lock these accounts

Jason2001 and GTA2001. These accounts were made by a previously globalled user called WG8686 just to evade bans. Paprika (talk) 04:02, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Locked per clear evidence that they are the same user. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:19, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Global lock request

Can you lock REDACTED? The username is offensive. User:FireBarrier101/sig 19:31, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

@FireBarrier101:, A staff member has already globally locked the account for good. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 21:06, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Yes check.svg Locked by @Reception123: as a Username Policy violation. Dmehus (talk) 21:07, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Can you check the global account for Trollsome?

Because I have a feeling that it was made by a user who was previously banned for lock evasions.

Also, here is some evidence that could link that account to him: DarkMatterMan4500 {talk} 21:02, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@DarkMatterMan4500: Can you link to the Special:DeletedContributions and/or Special:Contributions of the previously locked users of whom you suspect of evading their locks? It would be inappropriate to perform a CheckUser on a single account without another account to compare against. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 21:06, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus: Well, here's something that you could compare it to: Special:Contributions/GTA2001 DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 21:15, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@DarkMatterMan4500: That would be more helpful, certainly, but if I recall correctly, didn't you, or someone else on Discord, note that GTA2001 was themselves suspected of possible lock evasion? Do you happen to recall who you suspect GTA2001 of being an illegitimate sockpuppet of? Dmehus (talk) 21:29, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus: I actually suspected that account was a sock made by Willg8686 on Miraheze due to similar behavior patterns, thus, them talking about Trollsome on Scratch.
--DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 21:37, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@DarkMatterMan4500: Okay, this is better. Thank you. A steward should review your report in not too long a timeframe to review your report and perform their own due diligence. Dmehus (talk) 22:01, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Check User

Can you check if the user Is the same user as Bigtastey89 due to weird behavior on a wiki? I noticed that another unlogged in user is doing the same thing, however, there is something very strange about this one that is different from the other one, this one has been globally blocked exactly one month ago. I have no idea how or why they are doing this, and I have even less of a idea how they are doing it when their account is globally blocked. --ScratchCoder (talk) 23:57, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@ScratchCoder: (edit conflict) If it's just a logged out editor on a single wiki, I personally don't this would be required, to be perfectly honest. If you are seeing weird behaviour for that IP editor, you could just locally block (or rangeblock) that IP address and/or temporarily protect the page(s) in question to registered, logged in editors only. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 23:59, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Checkuser request on suspected accounts

Hi, I'd like to request for checkuser on suspected accounts on Unfavorable Wikis and Users Wiki. They are:

Most people said that Inkster is the owner of this account. People said that he showed up (As he joined in September 7, 2020) just days after Inkster started getting blocked around several wikis probably just a coincidence. Because of this Thorn Ice was accused as a sockpuppet use by Inkster. Thanks. User:FireBarrier101/sig 09:15, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

The user(s) in question have been Yes check.svg locked by NDKilla. Dmehus (talk) 04:19, 19 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

There is a user who is a admin that is doxxing a user's face on Unfavorable Wikis and Users Wiki on Miraheze

So this page which is made by Caulipower contains a Google Drive folder, that has a image of the user's face (which he hacked his webcam to get) and posted it there. His parents also tried to tell him to remove it, but he refused to (since he hated that user so much) and he wants the user to get doxxed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by OldieSchool (talkcontribs) 12:54, 18 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

First of all, you aren't fooling anyone Willg. Second of all, Caulipower did not "hack your webcam" and doesn't know how to hack people. Finally, while the drive shouldn't contain a picture of your face for privacy reasons, it is obvious that it was already made public before and therefore does not fit the definition of doxxing. Can a steward please lock this account for ban evasion and spreading more false information? Paprika (talk) 13:18, 18 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
You literally never learned from your mistakes did you, Willg? SpazJR61 (talk) 13:42, 18 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

These wikis are harassing, bullying, and doxxing innocent users

These wikis to be precise Atrocious YouTubers Wiki, Horrible Vyonders Wiki, and Unfavorable Wikis and Users Wiki.

They are harassing users, and they hate SJWs. We need them banned ASAP. - D-Mob — Preceding unsigned comment added by D Mob (talkcontribs) 18:54, 18 September 2020‎ (UTC)[reply]

wheres the proof of them harassing users? and is "They hate SJWs" really a bad thing? ScratchCoder (talk) 18:59, 18 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I believe many of the pages have a bunch of biased stuff, just look at most of them, this is why people work with Crappy Games Wikia more since it's a game reviewing wiki... - Machoke — Preceding unsigned comment added by Machoke (talkcontribs) 19:02, 18 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Innocent? You (willg8686, Kadabra) have been harassing users for around 3 years now! - LightCorp — Preceding unsigned comment added by LightCorp (talkcontribs) 20:04, 18 September 2020‎ (UTC)
I find it very weird that both D Mob and Machokes accounts are both less then one day old (Machokes account being less then a hour and ten minutes old by the time I'm writing this) and some information I found makes me think that your a sock of a user who has a page on Unfavorable Users and Wikis Wiki. ScratchCoder (talk) 20:07, 18 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@ScratchCoder: How, though? You got any proof? User:FireBarrier101/sig 20:55, 18 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I saw from the global account manager with says how old a account is. ScratchCoder (talk) 21:04, 18 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I use that “List Users” function that’s in every Miraheze to figure out when an account was created. - LightCorp — Preceding unsigned comment added by LightCorp (talkcontribs) 21:07, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

Do you Have Proof of This? or are you just Lying to try to take those wikis down. We never Harass ,Bully ,or Doxx Users. It was never Used to get anyone Bulled ,Harassed ,or Doxxed. Codeingit (talk) 12:05, 19 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Resignation of my Wiki Creators

Please revoke away my Wiki Creators right, as nowadays I've no much active time online to be a volunteer due to my live job. It will be preferable for other active users to be eligible Wiki Creators, thanks. SA 13 Bro (talk) 03:08, 19 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@SA 13 Bro: Thank you for your service as a wiki creator over the years. Should your circumstances change, please don't hesitate to reapply. I will notify a steward of your request. Dmehus (talk) 03:11, 19 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Can you please globally lock OfficialACYT?

He vandalized the The Secret Life of Pets 2 page on Awful Movies Wiki multiple times and it contained the n-word. Here's proof (warning you may find it offensive) - ACoolBlaze5 (talk) 12:03, 19 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

The user has been Yes check.svg locked by Reception123 as a vandalism only account and because said vandalism occurred on multiple wikis. Please note that vandalism occurring on only a single wiki can generally be handled with a local block. Hope that clarifies. Dmehus (talk) 13:51, 19 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Okay, but since I'm not an admin on said wiki, and that most of (if not, all) the admins on said wiki live in the United States (timezones), I cannot do much but inform the stewards. - ACoolBlaze5 (talk) 15:02, 19 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Please lock PsychoticClown

This guy has been saying some rather messed up stuff like that there should be more terrorist attacks. Not only that, but that counts as a threat. Here's evidence of him saying it:

Oh, and also, look at some of his activities on various wikis:

This guy has been praising deaths of other people, regardless of what category they belong to, and even said that if someone dies, he would celebrate their deaths.

The illogicalpedia was abandoned by its administrators and there is little activity. --Anthony8IA (talk) 14:03, 20 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Anthony8IA: Well, you can read Dormancy Policy as that may apply to your question. However, I'm not sure what your question is. Are you wanting to adopt the wiki, or otherwise hold a local election on the wiki with inactive administrators? Either of these may be possible, depending on the current wiki's status, and the circumstances that gave rise to that status. Dmehus (talk) 14:26, 20 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, I would like to adopt the wiki. --Anthony8IA (talk) 14:31, 20 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Anthony8IA: Okay, thanks. That's helpful. Looking in Special:ManageWiki, I see that wiki is not closed, so it cannot be adopted. I do see the wiki's sole bureaucrat has not edited in more than six months or more, yes, so you have a couple options here. One, you could go to this special page on the wiki to connect with that bureaucrat's user page and then use the Special:EmailUser function (if available) to see if they will appoint you as a bureaucrat and administrator on the wiki. Alternatively, ideally if they don't reply or you cannot use that function, you can hold a local election in a prominent page on the wiki, naming yourself as the candidate for local bureaucrat. If the wiki has local policies governing bureaucrat selection or election, you must follow them, and should link to that page in your local election. If they have no local policies governing role elections or selections, then, typically, you should establish those rules on your request for appointment or election page and, as a recommended guideline, should follow the global customs and conventions that we use (typically, a candidate's request is open for at least seven calendar days, the number of position(s) open for election or appointment is specified, the number of candidates running is also specified, and the required minimum support ratio is specified). Since the wiki is notionally not an active wiki, you should specify what happens if no one expresses a view after the minimum election timeframe you or the local wiki specifies (i.e., if it will be considered successful or unsuccessful). Once your local process has concluded, come back to stewards' noticeboard and, in a new thread, link to both your local election page (using the MirahezeMagic interwiki wikilink format I used in this reply) and any of the wiki's relevant guidelines or policies, and a steward will assess your process and grant rights in absence of an active local bureaucrat on the wiki.

Lock these accounts

These accounts go by the following: EliasD, EliasTheVyonder2001, Elias D The Vyonder, ItsElias, EliasTheVyonder2002, EliasTheVyonder2002 Returns, EliasD Alt, and EliasAnimate2020: They are all accounts made by a troll just to harass people and send threatening messages to them. Here's some evidence that proves that these Elias D accounts were made to harass and threaten other users. (Be warned, some might be disturbing, while others are just laughable in general):

Hey Stewards? This is a question I needed to ask.

That's okay, but in that case, you clicked the "nowiki" button instead of the signature button, which nullifies your signature. Dmehus (talk) 18:50, 21 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@SmackDownVSRaw: While I'm not a steward, my best advice regarding those wikis is to review every page, taking care to remove unsourced information that is wholly negative, derogatory, or denigrating about users. In addition, I also recommend reviewing your Special:BlockList and unblocking or unblocking and reblocking users with cleaner, non-derogatory or harassing block summaries. Dmehus (talk) 18:48, 21 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I believe I am not a admin on those wikis, and quality control on those wikis lack valid proof, and they have harassing block reasons. Please check those wikis with the stewards. SmackDownVSRaw (talkcontribs) 2:50, 21 September 2020 (EDT)

@DarkMatterMan4500: As I said elsewhere, you need to supply diffs to specific revisions showing the behavioural evidence. Stewards will not do this investigating for you.

I just want know what exactly went wrong, because I miss this wiki as a source of unlikable communities that people should be aware of. Man who turned Evil (talk) 12:36, 22 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Man who turned Evil: It was no specific page or even several page(s). If it were just that, the pages would've been deleted, and the local administrators told why. The problem with that wiki, as with the others, was a systemic issue, with sustained and persistent Content Policy violations. As well, the local administrators themselves committed sustained and continuous Code of Conduct with their egregious block and edit summaries. Dmehus (talk) 13:27, 22 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
