Request to reopen a wiki
Shortcuts:
RfA,
RfR,
RfRW

This page is for requesting to reopen ('adopt') a wiki (if you are not a bureaucrat) that has been closed due to inactivity.

Pictogram voting info.svg Note: Only wikis that have been automatically closed due to inactivity can be reopened here! If the wiki was manually closed, any reopening must be discussed with the closing management or raised on the Stewards' noticeboard.

If you would additionally like advanced rights (administrator and/or bureaucrat), please start a local election.

If you are already a bureaucrat on the wiki simply, go to Special:ManageWiki/core (on your wiki) and uncheck the "closed" box to reopen your wiki. Wikis that are set to private cannot be adopted due to privacy reasons! You must be a registered user to request a reopening (or to post on this page).
Please remember to:

  • Talk in a calm and respectful manner
  • Give us details

For other global issues please see: Stewards' noticeboard

To add your request, click the "Add Request" button below and enter the details asked.

solace.miraheze.org

Status:  Not done

IAmCauseStillYou (talk) 08:55, 26 February 2022 (UTC)

This conversation was directed to and is currently taking place on my talk page, and a permalink to the actionable conclusion will be provided when it's complete. --Raidarr (talk) 13:44, 2 March 2022 (UTC)
In light of an odd 14 days without further reply ^ seeking better rationale for why a relatively personal wiki is being 'adopted' by someone who is uninvolved, I mark this as X mark.svg Not done until/unless such followup is posted. --Raidarr (talk) 13:14, 16 March 2022 (UTC)

wikipuc.miraheze.org

Status:  Not done

Perropappa (talk) 17:37, 8 March 2022 (UTC)

@Perropappa: unfortunately, for this process I must mark X mark.svg Not done because it seems the database of the wiki has already been dropped. Dropped databases are uploaded in clusters onto archive.org; unfortunately these tend to be big files on a slow server connection with many databases to eventually extract the one, and you'd need an idea of when the wiki was last available to know which dump would be correct. The 'dump' includes an XML file of the wiki (assuming it was public; if it was private, I'm afraid it is truly lost). Any images I'm afraid would not be available, but if it was public the text should be preserved if you can locate it. I will cc Dmehus, a senior fellow Steward to see if he has any further details I may have missed on this. --Raidarr (talk) 01:22, 9 March 2022 (UTC)

smn.miraheze.org

Status:  Done

BrushYourCats (talk) 18:53, 10 March 2022 (UTC)

Yes check.svg done by reasonable request. If you would like further rights in light of the original creator's absence, I have an adoption process essay on the matter to help further realize the wiki's technical vision, if you wish. --Raidarr (talk) 23:27, 10 March 2022 (UTC)

hsffl.miraheze.org

Status:  Not done

Connor Rozee (talk) 05:55, 12 March 2022 (UTC)

@Connor Rozee: This wiki was deleted and dropped due to inactivity on 20 November, 2021. Please note that all wikis on Miraheze are subject to the Content Policy which states that wikis that lack activity are closed in 2 months and later deleted some time after 6 months of the last sign of activity. If you wish to restore this wiki, please re-request it normally via Special:RequestWiki (if you request a wiki, make sure to provide a detailed reason for requesting a wiki. Providing a one sentence response such as "my old wiki was deleted" or "I was told to re-request a wiki" are almost always declined.) and then head to Phabricator and request that a systems administrator restore the latest backup on hand of this wiki. Thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 06:02, 12 March 2022 (UTC)
@Agent Isai: Can you kindly give me an update on progress to restore the latest backup to my hsffl wiki? Connor Rozee (talk) 00:25, 15 March 2022 (UTC)
Have you made a request on Phabricator yet? Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:20, 15 March 2022 (UTC)
@Agent Isai Yes, Phabricator request made 12th March: T8922 Connor Rozee (talk) 01:34, 15 March 2022 (UTC)
I just saw it, thanks. All progress is logged in the task and as you can see, there is currently no progress on it. It will be processed shortly. Apologies for the delay. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:50, 15 March 2022 (UTC)

Viileäpedia.miraheze.org

Status:  Not done
@Istambul Psycho:: This request is and was badly malformed. I corrected the basic formatting on this attempt, but what you're requesting does not seem to exist, nor was it clear to another volunteer the last time. If you can provide a valid link of what you're looking at, it would be much appreciated. As far as I'm aware what you are referencing by name does not exist (not even with a base name, ie, 'viileapediawiki'). Please advise. --Raidarr (talk) 09:48, 12 March 2022 (UTC)

unwatchablesports.miraheze.org

Status:  On hold

FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 03:48, 14 March 2022 (UTC)

FatBurn0000, you have made only 1 edit to unwatchablesportswiki. When you say it has "more potential than [you] initially thought," do you mean you have previously contributed to this wiki, under a prior account (locked or unlocked)? Otherwise, I'm not quite sure what you mean. Secondarily, the other concern I have is that you seem to be requesting, whether at requests for reopening wikis or stewards' noticeboard, to be requesting to adopt/reopen quite a lot of wikis, some of which you've made few or no contributions to. Please note that per Dormancy Policy, a user may not request to adopt or otherwise have reopened every wiki (which includes, in Stewards' discretion, a large number of wikis). So I would need a clearer reason for wanting this wiki to be reopened. Dmehus (talk) 03:58, 14 March 2022 (UTC)
@Dmehus: I initially thought the wiki was a bad idea because you can't really create good pages about why sports are bad and it's not fair to criticise people for being bad at sports. However, I then realised that the wiki could also be used to talk about teams and individuals that are known for not playing fairly, along with bad moments in sport history. Also, I'm not necessarily going to adopt it - but I would like to contribute. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 10:01, 14 March 2022 (UTC)
FatBurn0000, okay, thank you for the added information. I'll consider reopening this wiki for you tomorrow, provided that you can you confirm that you do not intend to request to have any and all closed Reception-style wikis reopened merely to save them from deletion per Dormancy Policy. Dmehus (talk) 04:08, 15 March 2022 (UTC)
@Dmehus: I can confirm that. I will only request for a wiki to be reopened if I am actually going to contribute. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 09:09, 15 March 2022 (UTC)


lggyaanipedia.miraheze.org

Status:  Done

Matttest (talk) 03:38, 17 March 2022 (UTC)

@Matttest: Yes check.svg Open, apologies for the delay. --Raidarr (talk) 17:37, 24 March 2022 (UTC)

wikirlevip.miraheze.org

Status:  Done

Skarsna.meloviliju (talk) 21:21, 20 March 2022 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Reopened the wiki. Please contribute there, and, if rights are required, you may request them locally, or engage with Stewards. A local election will be required, possibly accompanied by a local sitenotice, for sysop and bureaucrat rights. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 21:28, 20 March 2022 (UTC)

runzeppelin.miraheze.org

Status:  Locally handled

Runzeppelin (talk) 07:09, 23 March 2022 (UTC)

Hi there. First, I invite you to read User groups#Bureaucrats which explains what bureaucrats are on a wiki. Essentially, bureaucrats are the highest ranking users on a wiki which I can see you are on your own wiki.
Secondly, I'd like to point out that the Meta link you're trying to use is reserved for Stewards only. To reopen your own wiki, click here and uncheck the "Closed" checkbox. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:29, 24 March 2022 (UTC)
Marking as Yes check.svg locally handled per your reopening of the wiki in the linked log action. Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:11, 26 March 2022 (UTC)

gundam.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Wiki: gundam.miraheze.org (On wiki: ManageWikiManageWiki logRecent Changes - On Meta: Wiki requestManageWiki/core)
  • Username: Balofo2
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO(was)
  • Reason: I lost the phone that had the Google Authenticator app so I was locked out of my two wikis(the other is geass.miraheze.org) because there's no way to recover the 2FA code anymore. I still have the password for the original account: Balofo. Basically I need to be a bureaucrat again to fine tune the configurations since the wikis are still very WIP.

Balofo2 (talk) 01:00, 26 March 2022 (UTC)

@Balofo2: For future reference, please make new requests by clicking the "Add Request" button as you copied the request at the very top, didn't remove the "not done" template from it and forgot to change some of the links from the wiki on the old request to this new request. Requests at the very top are often ignored as they're considered done so for your sake, please use the "Add Request" button next time. Now, while the wiki can be reopened, I would like to note that reopening a wiki does not equal you automatically gaining bureaucrat and sysop on the wiki. Once the wiki is reopened, you must stage a local election for the rights first and if no one contests it, you can be elected by acclamation. Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:07, 26 March 2022 (UTC)
Ok, so what do I do now for reopening the gundam wiki? I will continue to edit the geass wiki. Balofo2 (talk) 05:04, 26 March 2022 (UTC)
@Balofo2: I've Yes check.svg reopened the wiki. In addition to Agent's advisement I intend to follow up with you on the account issues. You can either start a local election per above to regain rights in that way, or attempt to recover your account through alternate means - though, the first step for that is seeing if you have saved any of the one-time recovery codes you should have seen when first adding 2FA. If you lost those too, it's a good opportunity to advise you to save those somewhere else so you are not entirely dependent on your phone. --Raidarr (talk) 14:02, 27 March 2022 (UTC)
Thanks, nope I don't have recovery codes(or remember if they were sent somewhere). Balofo2 (talk) 00:11, 28 March 2022 (UTC)

cpi.miraheze.org

Status:  Done

Gabpull (talk) 01:03, 27 March 2022 (UTC)

@Gabpull: Yes check.svg Open. --Raidarr (talk) 13:07, 27 March 2022 (UTC)

arhet.miraheze.org

Status:  undeleted

Mapping Expert (talk) 20:19, 27 March 2022 (UTC)

Mapping Expert, as the original, and current, bureaucrat on this wiki, this has been Yes check.svg undeleted for you. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 02:04, 28 March 2022 (UTC)

thalaswake.miraheze.org

Status:  cannot be done, but recreated instead

Tannerzm (talk) 05:30, 29 March 2022 (UTC)

Tannerzm, it looks like thalaswakewiki was, unfortunately, closed, deleted, and dropped in this batch of deleted wikis in accordance with Dormancy Policy. As a private wiki, it would not be included in the publicly available Internet Archive backups that Reception123 does, but it may be in his private wiki backups. Your images won't be restorable, unfortunately, if you had any that is, as those aren't backed up. After Yes check.svg recreating your wiki, I have filed a Phabricator ticket, #T9005, for the XML import. Please follow along there. Dmehus (talk) 05:40, 29 March 2022 (UTC)

bimagv.miraheze.org

  • Username: Bimagv (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): yes

Bimagv (talk) 15:29, 30 March 2022 (UTC)

@Bimagv: You’re a bureaucrat on this wiki so you can reopen this yourself. To do that, please click here and uncheck the "Closed" checkbox. Agent Isai Talk to me! 16:44, 30 March 2022 (UTC)
