== [[Meta:Patrollers|Patroller]] granted - 2021-11-28 ==
  +
  +
Hi, [[User:Agent Isai|Agent Isai]]. An [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Administrators|administrator]] on Meta has granted you the <code>[[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Patrollers|patroller]]</code> user group permission, which gives you the ability to <code>patrol</code> [[Special:RecentChanges|recent changes]] and [[Special:NewPages|new pages]] of other Miraheze users (both registered and anonymous) who are not either [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Autopatrolled users|autopatrolled]] or an [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Administrators|administrator]]. In addition, this group also means that your edits are <code>autopatrolled</code>, so other patrollers or administrators don't have to patrol your edits. You should also be aware that the granting of this user group is at the discretion of Meta [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Administrators|administrators]], so different administrators will have slightly different criteria for granting. Likewise, just as it is a discretionary appointment, revocation is also at the discretion of Meta administrators and, again, each will have their ''own'' criteria for revocation.
  +
  +
In the medium-term, plans are in the works to develop a Meta Patrollers School, likely led by one or two active [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Administrators|administrators]], that will provide a comprehensive set of guidelines for patrollers and answers to commonly asked questions.
  +
  +
Nevertheless, the following are some of the main guidelines for patrolling. If you follow these guidelines completely, it is unlikely your patroller user group should ever be revoked. In technical terms, even when you find content that requires deletion by an [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Administrators|administrator]] or otherwise requires remediation, undoing, reverting, or rolling back (if you are also a <code>[[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Rollbackers|rollbacker]]</code>, of course), you should ''always'' first mark as patrolled any revisions regardless of whether that content is destined to remain extant to the page or even on Meta entirely.
  +
  +
# When patrolling talk pages, user talk pages, and noticeboards (in '''Main''' and '''Meta''' namespaces), you should first check to see whether the user properly signed their posts using four tildes (<code><nowiki>~~~~</nowiki></code>). If they have ''not'', you should add {{tl|unsigned}} by '''substitution''' (<code><nowiki>{{subst:Unsigned|</nowiki>''username''<nowiki>|</nowiki>''00:01, 31 August 2020 (UTC)''<nowiki>}}</nowiki></code>), where ''username'' is the user's username or IP address and the timestamp is the full timestamp from the [[Special:Diff|diff]] page. As a '''best practice''', you should also link to the [[Special:Diff|diff]] in your edit summary, so other administrators and patrollers can easily tie your modification to the original edit being modified. To speed up this process, you can copy the <code>diff-permalink</code> user script from '''line 5''' of [[User:Dmehus/global.js|this page]] into either your (a) [[Special:MyPage/common.js|common.js]] or (b) [[Special:MyPage/global.js|global.js]] page (the latter applying globally on ''all'' Miraheze wikis);
  +
# When patrolling the noticeboards, ask yourself whether this topic is on the ''correct'' noticeboard. If it is ''not'', you should move it to the correct noticeboard, by either undoing the edit or manually removing the topic (if there have been intervening edits), again linking to the original noticeboard of the topic and the new noticeboard where it was moved in your edit summary. On the new noticeboard, you would simply paste in the topic (including the section header), linking to the [[Special:Diff|diff]] page as in the first step. An example edit summary might be <code><nowiki>Moved [[Special:Diff/######|this discussion]] from [[Stewards' noticeboard]] to [[Community noticeboard|here]]</nowiki></code>, where ''<nowiki>######</nowiki>'' represents the numeric revision ID of the originally posted topic;
  +
# Also when patrolling the noticeboards and talk pages (including user talk pages), as a '''best practice''', take care to kindly fix any formatting mistakes (such as excess line breaks or incorrect wiki code), per [[w:WP:LISTGAP|WP:LISTGAP]];
  +
# If something requires deletion, you can add {{tl|delete}} to the ''top'' of the page in question, taking care to follow the instructions on that template page;
  +
# If you come across a user who repeatedly makes the same mistakes, send them a guidance note on their user talk page, informing of the steps need to edit and post constructively on Meta; and, finally,
  +
# If in ''doubt'' whether something requires remediation or not, ''patrol'' it, and then ask any [[Special:ListUsers/sysop|administrator]] via their user talk page or at [[Meta:Administrators' noticeboard]] if any further action needs to be taken.
  +
  +
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you! --[[User:Dmehus|Dmehus]] ([[User talk:Dmehus|talk]]) 03:30, 28 November 2021 (UTC)

Translation administrator granted - 2021-08-3

Hi, Agent Isai. An administrator on Meta has granted you the translationadmin user group permission, which gives you the ability to mark updated source pages for translation and prepare additional, untranslated pages for translation, among a few other permissions related to the administration of translated pages. You should also be aware that the granting of this user group is at the discretion of Meta administrators, so different administrators will have slightly different criteria for granting. Likewise, just as it is a discretionary appointment, revocation is also at the discretion of Meta administrators and, again, each will have their own criteria for revocation.

Nevertheless, the following are some of the main guidelines for translation administrators. If you follow these guidelines completely, it is unlikely your translation administrator user group should ever be revoked.

  • Don't mark or prepare pages too quickly. Administration of translation pages is handled by a system maintenance bot, FuzzyBot, whose tasks are handled by jobrunner1 and jobrunner2. Accordingly, it is strongly recommended that you check FuzzyBot's recent edits and log actions to see when it has completed your request. A good rule of thumb is to wait approximately 5-10 minutes between marking pages
  • Noticeboards and talk pages should never be translated. Due to the dynamically changing nature of the content on these pages, translation of these pages is undesirable, so they should never be prepared for translation. If you note that a noticeboard is proposed for translation (i.e., pages which contain translation tags but which haven't yet been marked), it's best to remove the < and > characters from the given discussion thread(s) that note the example translation syntax, to remove the noticeboard or talk page from pages proposed for translation
  • Never remove a translated page from the translation system. This is not recommended, mainly because the translation page units (in Translations: namespace) remain. Instead, if you believe a page should no longer be translated, start a new thread at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard recommending the given translated subpage(s) for deletion by an administrator. Once all the translated subpage(s) have been deleted, then a page can be removed from the translation system
  • Make use of tvar and [[Special:MyLanguage]] tags. The former is especially helpful with translating the displayed text of wikilinks (including interwiki wikilinks) and external links, and the latter is particularly helpful where the linked destination page is translated into languages other than English
  • Consider the utility and usefulness before preparing new pages for translation. For example, additional untranslated pages in Tech: namespace aimed at explaining to system administrators how to perform certain procedures are unlikely to ever be read in languages other than English. A best practice here is to propose new pages for translation at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard and obtain consensus there to prepare the page
  • Ignore, generally, pages in userspace proposed for translation. Often these are userspace drafts contain translation tags. You can usually just ignore these. If in doubt, you can ask at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard
  • Bookmark this help page on MediaWiki.org. Aimed specifically at translation administrators like you, it contains very useful, well written information on the Translate extension's translation administration tools

In addition, a couple of technical limitations regarding the translationadmin user group:

  1. You cannot mark fully protected pages that have been updated. If you see such a page that needs to be re-marked, please leave a note on the user talk page of any administrator on Meta or at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard; and,
  2. You cannot delete translated subpages. Again, you can recommend long outdated and unmaintained translations, as well as poor translations, for deletion by leaving a note on the user talk page of any administrator on Meta or at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you! --Dmehus (talk) 03:04, 3 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

About adoption

Thank you so much for redirecting my request to the right link. And I understand why he still can't be adopted by someone else, so I'll wait until the 16th to make a new request. Pérola Maniaco (talk) 10:46, 4 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wiki#19996

Please judge because the application form has been updated.--Key-Power (talk) 02:18, 19 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Key-Power: Hey Key-Power. I had to decline this wiki because you don't give enough details about what your wiki will be about. Can you tell us about what it'll focus on (e.g. banks in X place and their services, comparisons, branches, etc.)? Thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:34, 19 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
That one`s focus is on bank interest rates, branches and locations, etc. Sorry.--Key-Power (talk) 02:42, 19 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Key-Power: Please edit your request so that I may approve it. Thanks Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:51, 19 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank You!! Key-Power (talk) 03:29, 19 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Easypedia

Thank you so much for creating it!!! Krazog82 (talk) 22:06, 20 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I see you visited the wiki, no contribution though. Not interested? Sperosdurell (talk) 16:53, 31 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Sperosdurell: Please note that on average, only 0.5% of visitors to a wiki contribute to it. I only visited Easypedia because I was very concerned by the fact that Europe was called a country. It has since been corrected however, I would like to take this time to discourage you from sending such messages to people. Thanks! Agent Isai Talk to me! 17:53, 31 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Apology on Polandball Wiki

I have to post the appeal on your talk page because Miraheze talk pages aren't working properly.

Helllo, I want my block to be appealed. I listened after you told me to stop copying pages, and I copied pages because I didn't notice that Polandball Wiki was being imported. Because of this, I seriously regret copying pages after I realized I wasn't supposed to copy the pages, and because Denatidium told me that copying pages was unnecessary. I wish to be an admin in this wiki after my block is appealed. Tanawat2002 (talk) 19:11, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Tanawat2002: Speaking as a local bureaucrat and sysop, I accept your apology and have Yes check.svg unbanned you. Please do not defy warnings next time. This is your only warning. Thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 19:26, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'm happy to see that. I will not defy future warnings. Tanawat2002 (talk) 19:36, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Why would you decline my request?

What's wrong with it? The Kitchen Gun is not something violent, it's a special cleaning tool, it also has no blood or gore in it. I don't understand what's going on? If nobody responds, I'll move to mediawiki and create it on my own. Tankman fan 44 (talk) 19:45, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Tankman fan 44: Hey there, did you by any chance read the decline reason? It was declined because it lacked details, simply saying "I'd like a wiki for X" is insufficient reason. Try elaborating more on it like saying "This wiki will discuss the origins, uses, blah blah blah..." and I'll gladly approve it :) Agent Isai Talk to me! 20:00, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Here, what about this? Is this better?

A question

If you are a wiki creator, then why do you need to request wikis? I have seen some other wiki creators do this but since you can create wikis, it is kind of pointless to request them since you and the other wiki creators just end up accepting your own requests. Is it like a technical limitation or something? Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:04, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Blubabluba9990: Though we can use Special:CreateWiki to manually create wikis, it is standard practice to request a wiki and give a long, detailed description of our wiki in it and then approve it so that it is not unfair to others who have to write a description while we can just create wikis ourselves left and right. Agent Isai Talk to me! 21:13, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:15, 4 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
You may notice users with even higher global or technical permissions do this too. On top of Isai's explanation, it sets an example to follow for other requests. --Raidarr (talk) 00:38, 5 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:08, 5 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Sockpuppets

Excuse me but im not a sock, or have puppets!!! Those user names were alter egos. Your really pressuring me away from Miraheze! Sperosdurell (talk) 16:45, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for the clarification. Still, please keep in mind the message I left you. You've requested many wikis as of recently. I would advise you stick to one or a few and build them up rather than making many and dumping them. Agent Isai Talk to me! 16:47, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok then, West Virginia wiki i'll work on. Sperosdurell (talk) 16:50, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
that okay? Sperosdurell (talk) 17:11, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Sperosdurell: If you promise to focus on that wiki then it's fine. I'm simply just discouraging you from requesting an excessive amount of wikis but if you promise to work on a wiki, then that's fine. Agent Isai Talk to me! 17:18, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
K, thnx. Sperosdurell (talk) 17:21, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Sperosdurell: Will you stick to your current wikis? Agent Isai Talk to me! 17:23, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, West Virginia only. Sperosdurell (talk) 17:25, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
im telling you all, dont bite me as a failure, im not making sense srry. SperosDurrell (talk) 22:08, 29 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Not to start a war, but 'alter egos' are de facto sockpuppets by definition. It is not an insult, mockery or even inherently negative, it is a fact. Especially when they serve a purpose that is exclusively to benefit their handler. Let's not obfuscate language by calling an orange a 'bright round ball'. Raidarr (talk) 17:30, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Your wrong 👎. Lets not fight ok? Sperosdurell (talk) 17:55, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks Isai. Sperosdurell (talk) 18:20, 14 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wiki that will gain attention?

Suggestions? I need ideas. I got the message Agent, i know, but i need guidance from you or others, instead of scolding me. Thank you. Sperosdurell (talk) 19:31, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Sperosdurell: Our intentions are never to scold users or bite the newcomer but instead to help you out. As for gaining attention for you wiki, perhaps try joining groups with interests similar to the scope of your wiki and linking your wiki to them. Of course, don't aggressively advertise it but maybe say something like "Hey, we both like X and I'm actually making a wiki for that, you should check it out and help me compile a list/write an article/etc." Agent Isai Talk to me! 19:35, 16 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I got a idea, see Wiki requests. Ty. Sperosdurell (talk) 01:12, 17 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Re

I could do that, (I've done it once), but I think a wiki for each language would be better, there's me and two other partners who can help. Plus, think like me: This extension is typical of a project that doesn't need another wiki, like: MediaWiki, Wikidata Xaosk (talk) 23:41, 17 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Xaosk: If you believe you are capable of managing various wikis then I would say go ahead but I still strongly believe having 1 wiki would be better. Miraheze Meta employs Translate and it works well. Additionally, maybe the Wikimedia Incubator extension could come in handy in organizing the wiki into different languages. Agent Isai Talk to me! 00:39, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: come on, create the wikis, we are not alone Xaosk (talk) 00:49, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Xaosk: I just want to make sure that you won't create a bunch of wikis, realize its hard to translate them all because you have to keep moving from wiki to wiki to translate them, and then give up and abandon them. That's all. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:02, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Interwiki

I understand that you are concerned about putting a random one to be an interwiki administrator. More simply, I've never vandelized a wiki in my life, let alone spam. I asked to be added locally as an interwiki admin on these wikis only.

I've also managed to remove the dormancy policy on the main wiki as well. Xaosk (talk) 00:01, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Xaosk: While I doubt you've ever vandalized a wiki ever, it is policy and must be followed. If you don't meet the requirements, you can always request Interwiki links to be added by a global Interwiki Administrator on the Community noticeboard, Discord (#interwiki-requests channel) or IRC. Sorry for the inconvenience. Agent Isai Talk to me! 00:43, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: As a matter of fact, I barely visit other Miraheze wikis. So if I were a vandal I wouldn't even know what to do. Only thing I want is to add interwiki between bus wikis. Only that! I don't even own a site other than a Wiki. Xaosk (talk) 00:54, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Xaosk: I unfortunately cannot do anything to assist you. If you meet the requirements for local Interwiki Administrator then it shall be granted to you and if not, you can always request a global Interwiki Admin add the interwiki links in for you. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:01, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: I have 22,000 global edits, I can get as it needs 500 edits on the local wiki so I meet the requirements YellowFrogger (talk) 01:11, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@YellowFrogger: Excellent. If you meet the requirements, on the local wikis you are requesting interwiki administrator on, hold a local election and let it (preferably) run for 7 days. You should ensure this vote takes place on a public, prominent, on-wiki venue. Once the election concludes (and you presumably win), post the results on the Stewards' noticeboard and you will be promoted to local Interwiki Administrator. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:16, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: I think you misunderstood the question. I am wanting to be an interwiki administrator on these wikis that I requested with my Xaosk sockpuppet in foreign languages (locally admin interwiki), these wikis I will manage. and also on my own wiki (Ônibus Wiki; Wiki Buses in english). Did you understand? I want to be an interwiki admin on my own wikis YellowFrogger (talk) 01:22, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@YellowFrogger: Yes, I did. You must hold an election even if your wikis are small. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:23, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: Pear. In a wiki where I manage, I'm even a bureaucrat and creator. In my opinion it doesn't make sense YellowFrogger (talk) 01:27, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@YellowFrogger: Per these discussions on the Stewards' noticeboard (1, 2), if your wiki has no real community (which would be the case for your new wiki), then once you reach the local requirements, you can be granted it. In the case for a wiki with an established community (even if it's 1 or 2 other users), an election would have to run for a minimum of 3-7 days. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:34, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: But it's very difficult as I already have 20,000 on the wiki bus. Would you, or any other Steward, have to give a dear customer a chance?
Obs: Besides being a little unfair too, as I have to do 500 more edits on several other wikis that I don't even have. I'm not a robot. YellowFrogger (talk) 01:43, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @YellowFrogger: I will ask around about this, please stand by. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:48, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Agent Isai: Ok. But don't shy away from the subject. Don't run away. Let's sort it out soon, thanks YellowFrogger (talk) 01:56, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
If these are all wikis you manage, I'm sure there's no issue with making you the local interwiki manager as well. --Raidarr (talk) 08:32, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Raidarr: That's what I'm talking about. But I just want the interwiki admin, I don't think I need to be a manager/steward. YellowFrogger (talk) 15:00, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

.......

@Agent Isai: My God in Heaven. The goal of the wiki is already there. very sharp, doesn't need a description. Because you keep refusing the requests. YellowFrogger (talk) 23:10, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

.

I'm literally being trolled... lmao YellowFrogger (talk) 02:15, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@YellowFrogger: Could you elaborate? Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:24, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@YellowFrogger: please consider the appropriateness of your language and actions on this page. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 08:18, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@RhinosF1: What? YellowFrogger (talk) 17:23, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@RhinosF1: Calm down man ..... I saw here now on your userpage that you are a teenager. Probably 15 years old. Teens like that are easier to blow up without patience, and end up blocking me. Please consider that I'm talking to him correctly, and that this wiki issue has already been resolved. YellowFrogger (talk) 17:30, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Disastrous Wikis Wiki

You seem to say that this wiki would violate the Content Policy because it "has the sole purpose of spreading unsubstantiated insult, hate or rumours against a person or group of people", but it doesn't. In terms for the "A wiki must not create problems which make it difficult for other wikis", as I said before, it will only be about closed wikis or wikis that are there with the owner's approval (unless they are in the "Average Wikis" category since that category is for average wikis, not bad ones). Musicismylife (talk) 08:11, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Irrespective of the controls you try to place on it, there is strong precedence for Miraheze that this type of topic simply invites more drama than even other wikis dedicated to negative topics, which are already somewhat a stretch. By name, by subject matter and by the provisions of content policy, this cannot be done nor can it be lawyered with promises of 'doing it right this time'. The mere precedence of allowing it is a problem. You can say 'it doesn't' as a rebuttal, but that does not address the layered concerns that the meta community in general has with this form of wiki. --Raidarr (talk) 11:48, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Raidarr: Right, but the Content Policy only says that "it must not create problems which make it difficult for other wikis". This wiki will only be about wikis that are there with the owner's permission or are closed (with the exception of average wikis because they're considered average, not bad.). That should be a good way to avoid drama. Musicismylife (talk) 22:35, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Considering average on a domain, page header, etc flagrantly saying 'disastrous' is a bit of a conflation. Common in QP, but present nonetheless. Anyway, I would personally not go for it on principle irrespective of promises that would probably neuter its article count to a very low volume if followed accurately (ex, would defer on communities without a truly established owner as they often are on principle when they reach a certain size on Miraheze or Fandom), but I will defer to Agent for what he might think in detail. --Raidarr (talk) 23:32, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Raidarr: I don't get what you mean by "would defer on communities without a truly established owner as they often are on principle when they reach a certain size on Miraheze or Fandom". Do you mean that it might be a problem if people start making articles about wikis with no actual owners? FatBurn0000 (talk) 07:46, 2 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Indeed, or cases where users claim ownership (such as on Miraheze) that they do not actually have, leaving a gap for reasonable community or fellow staffer complaint. It's typically not the way of wikis for Fandom or Miraheze to be 'owned' in the eyes of the platforms, even if users claim to own them. Both platforms simply defer to local leadership whatever that may be until an issue arises. --Raidarr (talk) 09:12, 2 October 2021 (UTC)
[reply]
Incidentally, I'm not sure why you reset reply chain on each post as it is unusual for conventions of meta conversation. I'm not changing it, but I am curious. --Raidarr (talk) 09:42, 2 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Well, we could forbid those wikis. Also the "owner" is generally whoever is the founder, the person who adopts this wiki, the person who was decided to be the "owner" or possibly the most active bureaucrat. FatBurn0000 (talk) 22:16, 2 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Well, I defer to the discretion of the Wiki Creator team; from a preventative standpoint I am concerned (the name alone is quite provocative especially of the types of wikis that have been closed here in the past), but at my most liberal I would probably let it exist under careful watch for conduct. --Raidarr (talk) 22:40, 2 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry for Speros's Durell's behavior, im his "master/voice". He should get 1 more wiki though, thank you 😊. SperosDurrell (talk) 15:05, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Sperosdurrell: I do ask that you take time off from Miraheze to focus on yourself. You will not be granted any more wikis for the time being unfortunately. We had an agreement which you did not fulfill on your end. For this and other reasons, I ask that you take time off from the internet and focus on yourself. Agent Isai Talk to me! 15:11, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
hi SperosDurrell (talk) 03:53, 6 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
More why so much Wiki? I asked for several wikis, but version in other languages for example. Before requesting a wiki, you will have to define what the content will do. If you don't know what to do, think about it, in the meantime, go order a pizza, watch a series or something. Yellowass.png (talk) 23:13, 2 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I wanted to come back to tell you im in a better frame of mind. I can add content on a new Wiki if im allowed this time. I don't have my hopes up though unfortunately. Thank you. SperosDurrell (talk) 02:04, 3 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@SperosDurrell: That's nice but no further wikis will be created for you at least until your Stewards' noticeboard thread is resolved. Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:07, 3 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

mh:dict im going to work on for now until wiki creation ban is lifted. Thank you. SperosDurrell (talk) 02:31, 3 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I suggest sticking to dict until it's in a good state for pages and content. If you prove you can make the wiki functional (ie, there's enough stuff that people outside would come in and find the content useful) and so so with a few more of your wikis, you can be trusted to create wikis with a chance of them having a future. There is no shortcut, however. Only diligence will win here. --Raidarr (talk) 10:40, 3 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Google Search Console

that can't

When I go to check, a message says:

"Couldn't find your verification token in the domain's TXT records. Sometimes it may take some time for DNS changes to show up. Wait a few hours and open your property in Search Console again. If verification fails again, try adding a different DNS TXT record."

And another: you have to log in to your domain name provider (eg godaddy.com or namecheap.com). Like, how am I going to login to my domain provider? I don't even know what this is or how to login.

This was in the "Domain" alternative, I have to go to the "URL Prefix" property to work? I will see. Yellowass.png (talk) 23:54, 9 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@YellowFrogger: I am so so sorry for the late reply. What you need to do is select "URL prefix" when it asks you to select a property type. On the screen after that, click "HTML tag" to prove your ownership of the subdomain and then insert everything in the long content= tag into Special:ManageWiki/settings -> SEO -> Google HTML tag and you should be able to verify your ownership of the subdomain. Agent Isai Talk to me! 16:54, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: I will see. good night Yellowass.png (talk) 00:11, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@YellowFrogger: I reviewed your ManageWiki settings, please replace everything inside the $wgGoogleSiteVerificationKey with the following: PzNOd2Jrolm8afbN9c1D9HOkbn_0DnazSJIO6ibQkhs and then try again after 5 minutes. Agent Isai Talk to me! 00:31, 17 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Take your time but can I request a wiki now? JW. Thanks. SperosDurrell (talk) 23:31, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
In such a short time? Not to speak for him, but don't expect it. Give it the span of months, not weeks. Several wikis are still poorly attended or unattended and yet you push to create more once again. --Raidarr (talk) 23:53, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

what's your deal anyway raidarr? Always hating on me. SperosDurrell (talk) 23:58, 13 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@SperosDurrell: Digressing back onto the original inquiry, Dmehus has applied a temporary restriction onto your wiki requesting activity per his reply on the Stewards' noticeboard. As such, I am in no capacity to tell you when this restriction will expire. If you wish, I can send him a message and ask him for more details on your restriction and perhaps to send you a message with more details and a possible date of expiry of the restriction. Agent Isai Talk to me! 00:06, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Reception wikis tend to be like this Yellowass.png (talk) 00:14, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: There's something quite strange about this conversation between SperosDurrell and OneUp117. Something tells me that Spersodurrell is having a conversation with himself, which is quite awkward, given OneUp117's low edit count, which recent edits there is just the user simply replying to the former, and the latter doing vice versa about 4 minutes apart from each of the diffs in question. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 00:11, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Not my account. SperosDurrell (talk) 00:12, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
SperosDurrell Well, given that you were confirmed to other older accounts by a Steward recently, I'm not quite sure about this. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 00:14, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
im not lying. SperosDurrell (talk) 00:15, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@DarkMatterMan4500 and SperosDurrell: While the conversation does seem a little strange, it may just be a coincidence. Additionally, I see OneUp117 requested a wiki shortly before SperosDurrell sent the welcome message. Perhaps SperosDurrell was simply trying to be friendly? Either way, I'm sure SperosDurrell knows that evading his temporary restriction is a bad idea so I would trust that SperosDurrell is not lying knowing this. Agent Isai Talk to me! 00:19, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@DarkMatterMan4500: But for now no one checksuser on it, which is an invasion of privacy. By the way, they are using a lot of checkuser in Miraheze lately Yellowass.png (talk) 00:15, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
yellow im not oneup!!! SperosDurrell (talk) 00:16, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@YellowFrogger: There have been a nice number of CheckUsers, yes, but mostly because there was a backlog either way. Policy dictates that CheckUsers may only be done where there's credible suspicion of sockpuppetry. To request one, you need a nice amount of evidence too. Agent Isai Talk to me! 00:17, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
i aint no sock SperosDurrell (talk) 00:19, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: I don't want to order one. I just stated that they are using CheckUser a lot, when in fact it is only to be used when suspicion is very strong. Yellowass.png (talk) 00:21, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@YellowFrogger: Indeed, and as I said, CheckUsers are only fulfilled when there is strong proof of sockpuppetry. If you check our CVT channel, users typically request a CheckUser and back up their claim with lots of different diffs proving potential sockpuppetry. Agent Isai Talk to me! 00:23, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
YellowFrogger How is it an invasion of privacy though? Stewards don't go revealing IPs to the users in accordance to Privacy policy. There's a reason why Doug's being using the tool: It was mainly due to persistent sockpuppetry. I'm sorry, but you're not really making sense with this logic, and this is coming from a local community member helping CVT. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 00:19, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@DarkMatterMan4500: Well, people don't even want the butler to know what city they live in. You don't even need other people to see it. Yellowass.png (talk) 00:22, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@YellowFrogger: IP addresses can be oversighted by a supplementary administrator such as the typical steward craftsmanship or a Trust & Safety Team member of some sort, but typically this is encouraged to be asked that privately or in an email to either one of those groups.. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 01:42, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
And what I meant by that is that edits by the said IP address can still be redacted. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 10:15, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Google search console

I. After a month of putting up a sitemap index I haven't felt any improvement about the site being indexed or anything like that, it's still the same thing. What you said "your stuff will be on top" is apparently not so true. YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 03:52, 22 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@YellowFrogger: Your mileage may vary. My personal experience is that it is so but I also took other steps to ensure my wiki was properly indexed such as adding WikiSEO descriptions on many pages among a few things. It also depends on the traffic influx to your wiki. If your wiki covers a topic which has little interest then it may not attract a lot of people and thus may also not get that boost. It may also take time to index, Google works in mysterious ways. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:58, 22 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: Thanks for the reply. I understand that, that's why the Wikipedia is always ahead. I just said that, there was no worsening, however, no improvement.

Patroller granted - 2021-11-28

Hi, Agent Isai. An administrator on Meta has granted you the patroller user group permission, which gives you the ability to patrol recent changes and new pages of other Miraheze users (both registered and anonymous) who are not either autopatrolled or an administrator. In addition, this group also means that your edits are autopatrolled, so other patrollers or administrators don't have to patrol your edits. You should also be aware that the granting of this user group is at the discretion of Meta administrators, so different administrators will have slightly different criteria for granting. Likewise, just as it is a discretionary appointment, revocation is also at the discretion of Meta administrators and, again, each will have their own criteria for revocation.

In the medium-term, plans are in the works to develop a Meta Patrollers School, likely led by one or two active administrators, that will provide a comprehensive set of guidelines for patrollers and answers to commonly asked questions.

Nevertheless, the following are some of the main guidelines for patrolling. If you follow these guidelines completely, it is unlikely your patroller user group should ever be revoked. In technical terms, even when you find content that requires deletion by an administrator or otherwise requires remediation, undoing, reverting, or rolling back (if you are also a rollbacker, of course), you should always first mark as patrolled any revisions regardless of whether that content is destined to remain extant to the page or even on Meta entirely.

  1. When patrolling talk pages, user talk pages, and noticeboards (in Main and Meta namespaces), you should first check to see whether the user properly signed their posts using four tildes (~~~~). If they have not, you should add {{unsigned}} by substitution ({{subst:Unsigned|username|00:01, 31 August 2020 (UTC)}}), where username is the user's username or IP address and the timestamp is the full timestamp from the diff page. As a best practice, you should also link to the diff in your edit summary, so other administrators and patrollers can easily tie your modification to the original edit being modified. To speed up this process, you can copy the diff-permalink user script from line 5 of this page into either your (a) common.js or (b) global.js page (the latter applying globally on all Miraheze wikis);
  2. When patrolling the noticeboards, ask yourself whether this topic is on the correct noticeboard. If it is not, you should move it to the correct noticeboard, by either undoing the edit or manually removing the topic (if there have been intervening edits), again linking to the original noticeboard of the topic and the new noticeboard where it was moved in your edit summary. On the new noticeboard, you would simply paste in the topic (including the section header), linking to the diff page as in the first step. An example edit summary might be Moved [[Special:Diff/######|this discussion]] from [[Stewards' noticeboard]] to [[Community noticeboard|here]], where ###### represents the numeric revision ID of the originally posted topic;
  3. Also when patrolling the noticeboards and talk pages (including user talk pages), as a best practice, take care to kindly fix any formatting mistakes (such as excess line breaks or incorrect wiki code), per WP:LISTGAP;
  4. If something requires deletion, you can add {{delete}} to the top of the page in question, taking care to follow the instructions on that template page;
  5. If you come across a user who repeatedly makes the same mistakes, send them a guidance note on their user talk page, informing of the steps need to edit and post constructively on Meta; and, finally,
  6. If in doubt whether something requires remediation or not, patrol it, and then ask any administrator via their user talk page or at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard if any further action needs to be taken.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you! --Dmehus (talk) 03:30, 28 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
