== Restoration of NoelSimsSandbox ==
Hello, I would like to ask if you could restore NoelSimsSandbox for me, because it was deleted because of inactivity (is there a way to disable it?) I also might want to import my FANDOM articles to Miraheze if it's possible [[User:NoelSims|NoelSims]] ([[User talk:NoelSims|talk]]) 14:25, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

You're currently logged out. If you're having problems with your wiki, you need to login.

Looking to make a report regarding a specific user? In addition to being required to provide a thorough and complete report, you should also know that reports by anonymous or logged out users are not taken very seriously for a couple reasons, namely that:
1. We don't know who is making the report; and,
2. Western liberal democracies enshrine in a citizen's fundamental, constitutionally-enshrined legal rights the right to know and face one's accuser, and Miraheze is no different.

Accordingly, please kindly login. If you are unable to login, please e-mail sre(at) with your username and the specific error message you are receiving, and they will assist you, or direct you to other global functionaries where appropriate.

Why is FuturisticHub forbidden on Terrible TV Shows?

I remember when Terrible TV Shows wiki used to have page on FuturisticHub because of his fetish videos, and I decided to make fun of him, yet it's very biased and would cause drama. I apologize for causing drama to FuturisticHub just because of his fetish videos, especially the infamous NEEDED IN MINECRAFT video.

Anyway, you requested Terrible TV Shows to forbid anything about FuturisticHub. But why? Maxkatzur (talk) 11:48, 8 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Maxkatzur: I think this is rather a question for Terrible TV Shows wiki. I for one am not aware of any request from Stewards that would 'forbid' content about FuturisticHub, assuming the "you" meant Stewards. Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:03, 8 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'd check with Dmehus. He was the last person if I remember to review that content. To be honest, it wouldn't have been a bad idea if he did. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 17:31, 8 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not aware of a FuturisticHub page on terribletvshowswiki. I'm aware of a similarly named former page on another wiki, though, which Stewards opted to remove as it contained information contrary to Content Policy (namely, unsourced, defamatory, wholly negative, and potentially libelous information). Can you give us a few more details on the page on this wiki? Dmehus (talk) 17:36, 8 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Prior to its closure on FANDOM, there was a page on Terrible TV Shows wiki criticizing FuturisticHub, the Minecraft animator infamous for his fetish videos and the now-infamous NEEDED IN MINECRAFT video. Maxkatzur (talk) 05:33, 18 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Merges and renames

As part of a rebrand on the Reception Wikis, some of the wikis are getting renamed and others are getting merged. Recently Horrible TV Show Episodes Wiki was merged with Terrible TV Shows Wiki, and here are the rest:

  • Merges:
    • Merge Marvelous TV Show Episodes Wiki and Terrific TV Networks Wiki with Best TV Shows Wiki
    • Merge Amazing Gameplay Wiki with Awesome Games Wiki
    • Merge Atrocious Gameplay Wiki with Crappy Games Wiki
  • Renames:
    • Rename Terrible TV Shows Wiki to Terrible Shows & Episodes Wiki
    • Rename Best TV Shows Wiki to Best Shows & Episodes Wiki
    • Rename Great Characters Wiki to Incredible Characters Wiki
    • Rename Wonderful Books Wiki to Magnificent Literature Wiki
    • Rename Dreadful Books Wiki to Dreadful Literature Wiki

For the renames it is the domains that need to be moved. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:26, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Blubabluba9990 For the renames, since these are * subdomains, the subdomains shouldn't be redirected, as that would preclude them from being reused. If you still want to have their databases be renamed, this can be done, without the redirect, and is requested on Phabricator. For the merges, so basically, this would also need to be requested on Phabricator, ideally having a local discussion or on-wiki vote on each of the three wikis first. After a week or so, a local bureaucrat or Steward can assess each discussion, confirming whether there's consensus to merge. Once there is consensus to merge, you can file a Phabricator request to export XML dumps of each of the three wikis and import them to the surviving wikis. Once that's done, you can request a Steward delete the non-surviving wikis. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 20:37, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok. Though this isn't really a consensus thing as all of the wikis being rebranded and merged have the same ownership. Also I did post about this on Awful Movies Wiki, and mentioned three of the people helping out with this: @MarioMario456:, @FreezingTNT:, and @Trevor807:. None of them have responded yet. Horrible TV Show Episodes Wiki was recently merged though, and was requested via the Phabricator. Though we can be patient with the others, Terrific TV Networks Wiki should be merged with Best TV Show Episodes Wiki soon since it is closed for inactivity. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:45, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Well, my main concern is that this isn't being done by a select few administrators or bureaucrats. It doesn't have to be a discussion, I guess, on each wiki, but rather, there should be some sort of discussion that the community agrees the list of wikis are part of the Reception/Qualitipedia group of wikis and that the merger is a good idea. Dmehus (talk) 20:47, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
The merges and renames could be done one-by-one anyway, it is mostly just Terrific TV Networks Wiki I am worried about because since it is closed for inactivity, there is a very short time-window to be able to merge it. The other merges and renames do not have a deadline, luckily. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:48, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok. Again, I did bring this up on Awful Movies Wiki, but I am waiting for more responses. And I am patient with regards to the other parts of the rebrand, but as I said there is a deadline for when Terrific TV Networks Wiki can be merged, since it is closed for inactivity and may be deleted soon. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:50, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Here is the URL for Terrific TV Networks Wiki:
If you look at the Recent Changes, the last entry was on February 22, meaning that the wiki was closed on April 22, meaning we have until October 22 to merge that wiki. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:54, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'll generate a dump of that wiki and post it for you to download. Dmehus (talk) 20:55, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Blubabluba9990 The wiki was not manually closed by a bureaucrat nor was it a private wiki, so here are XML and image dumps for terrifictvnetworkswiki as at 21:03, 10 May 2021 (UTC). Please ensure you download them within seven (7) calendar days, and let me know once they've been downloaded. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 21:03, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I don't usually download dumps, idk how. The three users that I mentioned do not seem to be replying so idk what to do. Since I am not a bureaucrat on any of the wikis my hands are tied. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:05, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
In fact there are only seven pages on the wiki not counting redirects, so I could even do this manually. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:06, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
That would work, too. Yes. :) Dmehus (talk) 21:07, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Blubabluba9990 No problem. I'll just {{ping}} MarioMario456 and DarkMatterMan4500 here. They should know what to do. Dmehus (talk) 21:07, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, I'm the founder of Wonderful Books Wiki and while I'm not pinged I'm here. DuchessTheSponge (talk) 21:13, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @Dmehus: You called? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 21:19, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Update: I just ported a bunch of pages from Terrific TV Networks Wiki onto Best TV Shows Wiki except for the ones that were already on Best TV Shows Wiki. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:21, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I actually posted this on Awful Movies Wiki so we can continue this discussion there. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:22, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
DarkMatterMan4500 See my reply to Blubabluba9990 above where I posted a couple of requested dumps. I'm not sure if they're needed anymore, but feel free to download them, if they are, in order to request they be imported onto the surviving wiki. Dmehus (talk) 21:32, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus I'll go on ahead and download the XML files now and get them over with. DarkMatterMan4500 Talk to me 21:44, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Bureaucrat decisions: The merges of Marvelous TV Show Episodes Wiki and Terrific Television Networks Wiki to Best TV Shows Wiki will be done next. After that, I'll rename Great Characters Wiki to Incredible Characters Wiki, take over Horrible Music & Songs Wiki, and redesign the main pages. I'll leave the domain changes for last because this would leave a lot of dead links.

MarioMario456 22:32, 10 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Ok. I made a post about this on Awful Movies Wiki, so that will discuss this further. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 17:37, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Delete my wiki

Hi, please delete my wiki I can't spend time on my wiki For some reason I'm a little busy So I don't want to use the wiki now Rikv (talk) 03:49, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Rikv Have you generated XML and image dumps from your wiki using Special:DataDump first? Dmehus (talk) 07:12, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes Rikv (talk) 07:04, 13 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Rikv Apologies for the delay in replying. Thank for confirming that. Similar to the request(s) above and previously, as the only contributor to this wiki, I've now Yes check.svg completed this request for you, so it's been marked as deleted and the database will be dropped the next time system administrators run the wiki deletion script (likely in early June). Dmehus (talk) 18:27, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Please close my wiki

Please close my wiki(minecraft2b2t)--ロープTA (Please call me "RPT") (talk) 11:31, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

ロープTA Thank you for your request regarding your minecraft2b2twiki. I just need a bit of clarification as your request is not clear. Do you mean you want to have your wiki closed and deleted in accordance with Dormancy Policy or manually marked as deleted? Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 13:52, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry, please manually delete. I am sorry.--ロープTA (Please call me "RPT") (talk) 14:37, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
No problem at all. That's what I thought you meant, but since close has a technical meaning in the context of ManageWiki and the CreateWiki, I wanted to be certain. Anyway, as the only contributor to this wiki, this is now Yes check.svg done per your request. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 14:50, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]


What do you think about MrJaroslavik removing my message from his talk page?--Iron Sword 23 (talk) 17:39, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I mean, it's his user talk page, so he can remove it. I personally would've just used undo rather than rollback, but that is a minor point. I would maybe take that as an indication to avoid his user talk page? Dmehus (talk) 17:41, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Okay. Iron Sword 23 (talk) 18:10, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Iron Sword 23 Yeah, I mean you didn't really do anything wrong, but I do think that not everyone may appreciate frequent talk page welcomes (especially if they have quite a few edits on Meta). Rather, it might be best to focus on reaching out to users who have made only a few edits. Alternatively, you could still continue what you're doing, but if someone removes your post, just take that as a personal request from them and then avoid that talk page. How does that sound? Dmehus (talk) 18:18, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Scary transclusion

Hi. I was wondering whether Scary transcluding could be enabled on Meta as a few users have mentioned it before and it would be useful for template transclusion/substitution from the Miraheze Template Wiki. It's also currently enabled by default for wikis so I don't see a reason for why Meta shouldn't also have it enabled. Reception123 (talk) (C) 19:33, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Symbol strong support vote.svg Strong support This would make the Miraheze Template Wiki very useful (easily so) for the rest of Miraheze. Rob Kam (talk) 22:14, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Reception123 This is a reasonable request, and is now Yes check.svg done. In addition to the above, scary transclusion is also enabled on Loginwiki, so this will allow for cross-wiki substitution of templates and user page subpages between Meta Wiki and Loginwiki. Lots of potential use cases, and I've also had the same thought actually, particularly because I remember reading that Rob Kam has been wanting to more fully realize the ambitions of Miraheze Template Wiki becoming a centralized template repository. Related to that, it might be useful to centralize the Twinkle templates there, too. Lily has also done some great work on templates with parameters that have been coded specifically for cross-wiki transclusion, too. Finally, as you noted, this is already the default setting on all newly created Miraheze wikis. Dmehus (talk) 13:50, 18 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wikis Embedding Tracking Scripts

Hi, I have recently noticed that some wikis embed tracking scripts from (and some other sites as well) which sets tracking cookies. Miraheze is an advertisement-free wiki farm and I do not want to be tracked when I visit wikis hosted by this farm which load these scripts. I was under the impression that the CP implicitly prohibited this but it turns out that AddThis links are added by an extension called AddThis, which is installed on Miraheze. Should the extension be un-deployed and uninstalled as it poses a privacy risk or is an RfC needed? Thank you. User:R4356th/Signature 10:07, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

I found the task where the extension was installed. Labster mentioned that the PP necessitates adding a disclaimer where the extension is used but that may no longer be the case and I have seen no such disclaimer on wikis using it yet. Should this be forwarded to T&S or the Board or are Stewards the right people? User:R4356th/Signature 10:14, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
Hrm, I mean, yes, I was aware the AddThis extension was installed on Miraheze. It's mainly just so users can provide little chiclet links to share specific pages, comments, etc., on a given wiki across social media platforms, on wikis that have enabled them. As to whether this violates Privacy Policy or not, I believe it would depend on what sort of data is collected by the AddThis extension. For example, if it is just IP address and web browser user agent data, anonymized and in aggregate form, this may be fine. If it is collecting personal data in a non-aggregated format such that individual users can be identified, then further review is likely needed, and I suspect it would be the Site Reliability Engineering team would engage the Trust and Safety team. If the review concluded that there was no issue from a legal perspective, then I suppose, if the extension is widely used by many wikis, an RfC would indeed be the best route to go, if wanting to propose to have it removed. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 12:44, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
As a post-script to your further reply, where Labster mentioned a specific wiki disclaimer, I would just note that during that time, Miraheze was not incorporated and was managed from a liability perspective by Labster (U.S. jurisdiction). As Miraheze is now an incorporated entity in the UK, the legal jurisdiction has changed. Whether that changes the requirement for a specific wiki disclaimer requirement, I will have to have to review that with Owen. Dmehus (talk) 12:47, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Please can you handle this in your T&S capacity, let me know if you need anything. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 13:01, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I am aware of the changes caused by incorporation and that's what I implicitly referred to when I said "but that may no longer be the case". User:R4356th/Signature 13:22, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, I figured you were likely aware of that, but I was just noting that for others that may be following this thread. Anyway, I've asked Owen separately, as I do feel we need to first (a) look into what sort of data is collected by the AddThis extension, to ensure it is / remains consistent with Privacy Policy and (b) whether that specific wiki disclaimer is either (i) still required or (ii) no longer required, but a recommended best practice. Dmehus (talk) 13:31, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Bump. I noticed that was removed from the CSP whitelist. What did T&S decide to do with User:R4356th/Signature 21:31, 21 May 2021 (UTC)
R4356th Thank you for your enquiry and for your follow-up. With apologies for the delay in responding, the primary concern with is that it is an ad server, which is indeed contrary to the ethos of an ad-free Miraheze, and Privacy Policy does not allow data to be collected for the purposes of allowing behavioural ad service providers to add to their data collection. With regard to specifically, though that decision has not been finalized, our review of the Oracle Data Cloud Privacy Policy, of which AddThis and the AddThis extension is a part, confirms that only users that geolocate to the United States have any aggregate data tracking, and Oracle Data Cloud provides an opt-out for those users. Oracle Data Cloud specifically precludes tracking of users in the EU, UK, and EEA, and says it does not track users outside of the United States. Additionally, we have also confirmed that no wiki has the $wgAddThispubid variable specified, which would've provided tracking data (those in the U.S. that AddThis tracks, of course) to the AddThis user specified by the publisher ID number. As a result, Trust and Safety is satisfied, and has left any decision on whether to keep or remove the AddThis extension to Site Reliability Engineering. My understanding, though, based on my conversations with Reception123 is that their preference would be to retain the extension, provided that it still functions without, given the number of wikis that are using that extension. Hope that helps. Doug (talk) 00:59, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Searching extensions

I don’t know what is the right place to ask about this, so I decided to ask here now. Also, I don't know if the AdvancedSearch and CirrusSearch ​extensions have been in Miraheze before? If I remember correctly, these have been available at least sometimes (when I founded the first Miraheze-poweredby wiki). Now, however, I can no longer find these on any of my Miraheze wikis on ManageWiki, nor do they appear on the Special:Version page either. Have they been deliberately taken out of service or have they ever been? If possible, should one of the System administrators enable the AdvancedSearch and CirrusSearch extensions ​(possibly Elastica is also needed), because I think it's a great searching interface. Thanks. --Anton (talk) 10:57, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Anton Thank you for the question. I definitely agree that ElasticSearch and CirrusSearch provide superior search functionality and experience; however, I do know that they've been declined (possibly several times) by system administrators as essentially too resource intensive. In short, they'd require more system administrators than Miraheze's technical budget allows. Hope that helps. As to whether they existed on Miraheze before, it's possible, and if that is the case, system resources would be the reason. Dmehus (talk) 12:33, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, thanks Dmehus! This helps me. Hopefully someday we will get these extensions. Anton (talk) 12:56, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

InspecterAbdel Hrm, I was able to generate the correct tarballs and json files for each of the three backup types for naasgamelandwiki when I just tried. It could be an issue with your web browser, perhaps? Dmehus (talk) 17:46, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Why are pages criticising fetish art not allowed? Example: Rotten Websites Wiki

So I came with forbidden page example on Rotten Websites Wiki 'fetish art'. The reason states that is against Miraheze's content policy. So, what does violate content policy and does it causes drama? Maxkatzur (talk) 05:29, 18 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Maxkatzur Fetish art pages aren't prohibited by Miraheze's Content Policy. It's possible rottenwebsiteswiki has a local content policy that prohibits such pages, but if that's the case, some clarification is needed in terms of that wiki amending its rules to clarify that it isn't against Miraheze's Content Policy but rather the wiki's local content policy. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Dmehus (talk) 13:10, 18 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, can you tell why you cannot register to Phabricator? And I think AutoSitemap extension is possible, and only System administrators can install it. @Reception123:, @Universal Omega:? --Anton (talk) 08:41, 18 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Anton there's really no need to {{ping}} two system administrators to this request, as this is just an extension request. It likely will need a security review, but there's also a lot of open tasks on Phabricator right now. Plus, with the forthcoming MediaWiki 1.36 upgrade, it wouldn't surprised me if we deprioritized new extension requests until after the upgrade is complete. Dmehus (talk) 13:04, 18 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hugo Ar What is the error message you are getting preventing you from registering for a Phabricator account? As far as your extension request goes, this may require a security review, but if it all possible, system administrators have many tasks right now, would you be okay if we deprioritized this request until early to mid June (approximately) while the MediaWiki 1.36 is underway?

Muchas gracias por las respuestas. Dejo una captura de pantalla sobre el acceso fallido a Phabricator. Intento ingresar con mi nombre de usuario y la contraseña que utilizo aquí (es decir, en Miraheze como cuenta global), pero no puedo.
Sobre la extensión Autositemap:
  • si es posible la instalación: no hay prisas. No es prioritario.
  • si no es posble la instalación, solicito ayuda para crear una página .xml y crear manualmente el mapa del sitio.

Request for Wiki Deletion

Hello, it is with a lot of painful thought that I've come to this decision, but in the end it is inevitable that I will be taking an indefinite wiki leave of absence. In the near future, due to some rather personal reasons, I will no longer be able to attend to my wikis or any others, for that matter, and am unsure when I will be able to find the time to get back into Miraheze. The time that I have spent here was time that I enjoyed, I found the community welcoming, and there are so many opportunities to help. I wish I didn't have to stop now, right when I was really getting into the swing of things, but again, circumstances in my life have changed, and I need to devote my attention to other things. Therefore, I would like to request that my wikis, ikiwaywiki and turtlewikiwiki be deleted. The first one has only ever been edited by me, and the second one is a fictional world-building wiki started by me. I don't know if I'll ever have time to visit them again, so I would just like them deleted. The first one never hit off, so I'm fine with losing that one, and I have saved TurtleWiki to the Internet Archive as well as uploaded an image & xml dump of the wiki to the Archive. Thank you all for understanding, and I hope that sometime in the distant future, I may be able to come back and pick up where I left off. Turtle84375 (talk) 22:01, 19 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Lock request

To this user: Special:Contributions/Tonjobo4jw. Not useful edits. Spamming links. I don’t know where the links actually go (I haven’t tried), but together they say it takes them to illegal sites. User edits may also be worth the suppress. Thanks. --Anton (talk) 17:55, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Anton Wow, that's a strange one. Username suggests spam only account, but the edits are quite specific and not spam only account behaviour. It's likely long-term abuse, but, at minimum, it's a vandalism only account. Thanks for the report. Dmehus (talk) 17:58, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I would like the revisions on my talk page to be oversighted/hidden please. InspecterAbdel (NLW) 18:42, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Firstly, requests for oversight should not be requested on-wiki. Based on my conversations with other Meta administrators, who happen to be either Stewards and/or Global Sysops, I personally don't feel suppression is required here as this is just random nonsense/gibberish from vandalism only accounts. Revision deletion, I suppose, is a possibility here, but would be an edge case, I do feel. In any case, the vandalism only accounts have been Yes check.svg locked and measures have been effected that should prevent further accounts from being created.

Second Dormancy Policy Exemption Request

Unfortunately, I have to make a second dormancy policy exemption request for both my wikis, The Wow House Wiki and The Fowl House Wiki, as I am the only contributor to both wikis and I have been busy with other things like with Qualitipedia. I do have plans to request other wikis, but I do not want The Wow House Wiki and The Fowl House Wiki to be closed. They have a lot of content on them and I also do not have a lot of time to continuously update them. I cannot advertise either wiki because everyone hates wiki advertising. Also, is there a limit to wiki requests, because I was thinking of requesting some other wikis to be made in the future, but first I have to decide what will happen to my other two wikis. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 19:17, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, I wanna tell you that I know I'm not a steward but if your wikis are inactive, you can always reopen them by using Special:ManageWiki. Also, if you ever retire Miraheze then there's no point since these wikis will end up being raided later on, thanks. DuchessTheSponge (talk) 20:10, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I do not wish to retire from Miraheze anytime soon. I wish there was some way I could keep them archived but not closed, as I do not want them to be deleted. I unfortunately cannot protect these wikis forever. Also, I worry that I have been neglecting my wikis since recently a user vandalized it, luckily a global sysop took care of it but this does make me worry about the fate of these wikis. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:24, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'll take a look at your wikis and assess them in terms of content intended to be read by real people in the next couple days. Dmehus (talk) 20:26, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok. I plan to request more wikis but I will do that once The Wow House Wiki and The Fowl House Wiki have their fates sorted out and also after the Qualitipedia rebrand is done and dusted. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:36, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
If they get deleted, I suppose you could request them again and they don't really get deleted until around 6 months or a year. DuchessTheSponge (talk) 21:36, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Then I would have to recreate the pages all over again. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 23:06, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Successful election on horriblemusicandsongswiki

There is no active bureaucrat for promotion on that wiki, so I'm calling the stewards for help. Promote me to bureaucrat + sysop on horriblemusicandsongswiki with the reason being "successful election on a wiki with no active bureaucrats". The proof is:

MarioMario456 22:29, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I don't see a consensus for promotion at Talk:Main Page, as I explained to you on Discord. I'll work on closing the discussion this weekend, so that the wiki can move forward with potential alternatives for consideration. Dmehus (talk) 22:40, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Merge my accounts

I have know that I could request account merging in this noticeboard since there was an user got denied on the Community noticeboard. Before I create lhmnwiki about a month, I have created an account called "Song Ngư" - which did not have an email bind into it. Because of that, I losed my access into it. Could you help me merge my account into "Song Ngư"? Thank you first. Song Ngư MGR (talk) 02:57, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Song Ngư MGR If your apparent alternate account, lhmnwiki, was not attached to very many wikis (i.e., only a handful or so) and had not made many contributions, a user merge per your request would be possible; however, since you note that you did not have a confirmed e-mail address to the account and cannot remember your password, we have no way to be certain this account is 100% owned by you. Accordingly, this is X mark.svg not done, at least so long as you are not able to confirm this is your alternate account. I would, however, suggest that you try using Special:EmailUser to see if you can send e-mail to that user. It's possible the account did have a confirmed e-mail address associated to it. Check all your e-mail accounts and see if you receive an e-mail message. If you do, then you can try requesting a password reset. If not, then I'd suggest trying some of your common passwords. It's possible you do still have access; you just can't remember what the password is. Dmehus (talk) 14:33, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Please add Gazetteer of wikis to meta main page

There is no easy way to find where Gazetteer of wikis located at and jump to it. No mention of it on main page or Noticeboards. Thank you in advance.
 Helper (talk) 05:08, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Helper Firstly, normally requests requiring intervention by a Meta administrator should be placed at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard. Nevertheless, as your request is relating to placing link to a directory of Miraheze hosted wikis on the prominent Main Page, it's reasonable to think a Meta administrator would consult a Steward before implementing the change. Interestingly, I'm a bit surprised the Main Page didn't already have a link to the Gazetteer of wikis, or Special:WikiDiscover for that matter. One possible reason might be that such a link didn't really fit within any of the four quadrants, other than the possible exception of the third ("contact us") quadrant, but even then, it'd need to be renamed to reflect that its purpose is not just for contacting or following Miraheze. It then hit me where we could place this link, for which I've also added a link to Special:WikiDiscover. Accordingly, this is now Yes check.svg done; however, I'm going to {{ping}} Reception123, in his unofficial community relations liaison "capacity" and because he's been around Miraheze since the beginning, to share any thoughts.

Importing from Wikipedia?

I tried to import wikipedia:Peugeot 405 to but it timed out and got this message:

I'd set it so that all history and templates were included, for attribution purposes.

Is this normal, or is there a solution to this? --Walhouse (talk) 14:40, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Walhouse I'm not certain with that specific error; however, since Wikipedia templates include a lot of template dependencies, you'll almost certainly receive a 503 backend fetch error if you try importing all revisions and templates at the same time. Thus, I do recommend you either (a) import templates one-by-one, (b) import only the current revision, linking to the source template/module using an interwiki link, or (c) file a task of templates and modules to be imported on Phabricator by uploading your XML dump. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 14:46, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Accidentally changed settings when testing user groups

Would you be okay if I recreated the bureaucrat with the default permissions, then you can delete your Bureaucrats group? Dmehus (talk) 15:17, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Dmehus. Thank you. If you need to desysop a user on your wiki, is that for stewards or can it be done locally per the rules on here? I gave my test account sysop status on there, but now can't remove it. --Walhouse (talk) 15:42, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Walhouse No problem. For removing a user's sysop permission, no, Stewards don't need to get involved unless (a) the user complains the removal was done in contravention of the wiki's established local desysop policies or (b) there are no active local bureaucrats, and there's been a request to desysop the user in line with the community's consensus-established desysop policies (or global conventions and best practices, where none exist locally). For bureaucrat removals, while it is technically possible for bureaucrats to remove local bureaucrats, by default, Stewards are required to remove local bureaucrats. This is to help ensure (a) inadvertent self-removals of the bureaucrat bit and (b) the community's permissions removal policies are respected. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 15:47, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Walhouse Yeah, that's no problem, and Special:ManageWiki/permissions can be a bit confusing sometimes, as it's always the group above the group you want to be able have be added or removed by said higher level group. One time, in my local capacity as a Consul on TestWiki, I inadvertently and very briefly added the ability for the forumadmin user group to add and remove consul.

Suspicion on another user

Could someone at Miraheze do a Check User for both DarkMatterMan4500 and that IP vandal to determine their proximity?

Each time shows up to vandalize a wiki, DarkMatterMan4500 snoops in at the last minute right after all the damage is done to undo all of it. I feel like there is likely a case of superhero syndrome with this person.

Now, the Check User is to determine whether he had a friend nearby/a second address to vandalize Miraheze or if that's false.

In the future, I would also like to see the administration paying more attention to him for similar behavior. Gay Socrates (talk) 18:15, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I don't think they do CUs with IPs. InspecterAbdel (NLW) 18:19, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Gay Socrates Well, geolocates to CenturyLink in Portland, Oregon, and I have noticed similar crosswiki IP vandalism on that IP range. That being said, it would never be appropriate to link a user to an IP address. It is highly unlikely what you suggest is occurring, as DarkMatterMan4500 is just very active monitoring the #miraheze-cvt-feed connect, and reverts the vandalism very promptly. I would encourage you to thank DarkMatterMan4500 instead. Dmehus (talk) 18:27, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Gay Socrates What made you think I would even vandalize a wiki? Like what Dmehus has said, I'm usually just monitoring the wikis, and if there's vandalism happening over there, I'm usually over there reverting it. So your statement about me being related is absolutely not true, nor would I even know the user who was running it to begin with. Don't jump to conclusions, my friend.

Account separation

I keep on accidentally clicking on wiki links, and CentralAuth creates local accounts and adds them to my global account even when I do not want them there and never intend to contribute to the wikis. Since you said that it was possible to separate local accounts from a global account, I would like the following accounts to be separated from my global account:,,, and, the first two of which I clicked on by accident and the latter two were me investigating a phenomenon that I had told you about in a post on Community Noticeboard. Would it be possible to create an entirely new global account from just those four accounts, or will I need to first make an alt account to have them be merged into. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:45, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Or to be more specific: User:Blubabluba9990@naasgamelandwiki and User:Blubabluba9990@fridaynightfunkinwiki. Idk what the case would be for the other two wikis I mentioned since they do not appear to have a standard naming scheme.
Here is my CentralAuth for reference: Special:CentralAuth/Blubabluba9990 Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:53, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Or at least and, since the other two at least have some other Reception Wiki user influence, because they were both created by Reception Wiki users (InspectorAbdel created, and MarioMario456 created, but and have nothing to do with the reception wikis or any reception wiki users, it just seems like there was a weird glitch where appears in both Inkster's and Mar9122's CentralAuth and appears in Mar9122's central auth, which may just be an account creation glitch since both local accounts were created when the users were globally locked. So you should probably just unmerge my accounts at and and merge both accounts into a separate account, since I do not want them in my main global account. To be honest after looking up what Gyaanipedia is it doesn't even look like they are associated with Miraheze at all. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:34, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
So that would be Blubabluba9990@gyaanipediawiki and Blubabluba9990@frgyaanipediawiki. Should I create an alt first to have these accounts unmerged or could they just become a completely separate account. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 22:26, 24 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wait, I thought that Dmehus said that accounts could be unmerged from a global account Blubabluba9990 (talk) 18:53, 25 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
They can be. What RhinosF1 said above was not entirely accurate. That being said, there really has to be extraordinarily good reason(s) for wanting to unmerge an account and merge into it into another unmerged account, as there are quite a few steps involved, so it's really not a practice that scales on a wiki farm with four stewards and more than 4,200 wikis. If it's just to unmerge an inadvertently attached account from a wiki you didn't mean to visit while logged in, that wouldn't be an appropriate justification, in my opinion. If it's because you have notifications on a private wiki you can't access, your notifications can be cleared by SRE with a Phabricator ticket. Hope that clarifies. Dmehus (talk) 19:31, 25 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok. In that case it really doesn't seem like there would be a reason. I wish there was some way I could talk to the person who made the CentralAuth extension and ask them to make a way to delete or hide local accounts.

Request for wiki deletion

I would like my wiki on to be deleted. Anpang (talk) 00:54, 27 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Anpang As this wiki's sole contributing editor, this is Yes check.svg done per your request. Additionally, as there were only five sub-stub pages in (Main) namespace, each containing only a single sentence, I've assumed you have either (a) already generated an XML dump or (b) didn't need to generate an XML dump of your wiki. Dmehus (talk) 01:04, 27 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks! I didn't generate a dump because I don't need it. Anpang (talk) 02:42, 27 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Can you shut down Controversial Wikis & Users Wiki?

If you want to know why I'm asking this. Yes, I know you guys are aware of this site but I want to tell you guys that this wiki is becoming the new Unfavorable Wikis and Users Wiki as there's a bunch of pages on that site that violates the CoC. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you might wanna look here, so that's why I felt like it should shut down since it's becoming the new Unfavorable Wikis and Users Wiki. I felt like you should take a lot at this site carefully and you'll see what I mean, thanks. DuchessTheSponge (talk) 14:50, 28 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Embeding wiki on our web

Hi there,

we at would like to show the wiki as embeded site on our main site (so users are not directly linked to the wiki) -

When we were using self hosted wiki we were able to embed our wiki there. I dont know why its not working but I would ask you to change that so our users can directly use wiki on our site. LaboTec (talk) 09:02, 29 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Restoration of NoelSimsSandbox

Hello, I would like to ask if you could restore NoelSimsSandbox for me, because it was deleted because of inactivity (is there a way to disable it?) I also might want to import my FANDOM articles to Miraheze if it's possible NoelSims (talk) 14:25, 29 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
