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)miraheze.org 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.

CheckUser request for Real Life Villains Wiki

Hey, I was wondering if someone could do a user check for User:Oscargerardo, User:Juan Jose, and User:ChitoAlf on Real Life Villains Wikia. I suspect they might be the same person using multiple accounts. Both Oscargerardo and Juan Jose were banned for vandalizing articles. Juan Jose claimed to be Oscargerardo's nephew but his editing style is exactly the same. ChitoAlf claims to be Oscargerardo's father and Juan Jose's brother, but his editing style is the same too. They all could be telling the truth and actually be three separate but related people, but I want to be sure. Rangerkid51 (talk) 22:11, 20 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Dmehus: In light of what Rangerkid51 is talking about here, I believe I can provide the narration for this one: He's referring to this strange behavior from ChitoAlf and Juan Jose who have both used the uncle excuse to apparently circumvent a block. I thought it was odd for the account(s) to suddenly spawn there and ask Rangerkid51 to unblock Oscar under the guise of being his "nephew" for some apparent reason. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 02:09, 22 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
DarkMatterMan4500, thank you for the added context, as that is helpful, as Rangerkid51's request definitely needed further detail and clarification. I do think it'd be conceivable for a son to go to his father and ask him for assistance in being unblocked, but it does look odd that the apparent uncle is involved as well. In any case, in order to assess the potential credibility here, I'd need see samples of Oscargerardo's edits (specifically, talk page comments) to assess the behavioural similarity (or difference) of the users. In any case, whether they are the same user or not, the underlying request here is a user who is apparently contrite and asking for another chance to edit on the wiki without wholesale copying pages from English Wikipedia. Rangerkid51, I see that you have left Oscargerardo's user talk page open for appeals, which is good as not all reallifevillainswiki administrators do that, but would you be willing to go a step further by conditionally unblocking Oscargerardo accompanied by a firm warning not to (a) copy verbatim articles from English Wikipedia (maybe don't the word verbatim if English is not Oscargerardo's first language, though) or (b) engage in blatant vandalism (i.e., insertion of random gibberish or nonsense to pages, blank pages, etc.) and also to adhere to user accounts policy with respect to Oscargerardo's main account and the possible sockpuppet/admitted meatpuppet accounts Juan Jose and ChitoAlf and to edit on only one account? Dmehus (talk) 02:40, 22 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus Oh, it's no problem at all. I'm just glad I could provide it, since I knew you would probably ask Rangerkid51 to provide evidence as soon as you saw this message. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 02:55, 22 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hey, I'm sorry it took me so long to reply to all this. A fourth account (called Oscaralfredo) has also popped up on the wikia. I don't know if unblocking Oscargerardo and giving the user one last warning would be effective, because they have ignored warnings from other admins in the past. Rangerkid51 (talk) 01:05, 1 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I went ahead and blocked both ChitoAlf and Oscaralfredo. It's obvious to me that they're all the same person. Rangerkid51 (talk) 00:16, 5 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Usurp PlantyB0i

Hello there. I am PlantyB0i. I want to get back on the wikis. However, my original account PlantyB0i ( https://awesomegames.miraheze.org/wiki/User:PlantyB0i which is this account by the way) had some problems due to me deleting cookies for a school problem. When the cookies were deleted, I tried to get into my account and I can never get in. Now I made an account PlantyB0i2. Now I need to usurp my original PlantyB0i. Heck, if you want proof of my Discord, go to the Qualitipedia server on Discord and you see my name in the admin's section. I'm gonna have to do proof like this as an indication that the Discord user RareWare64 aka PlantyB0i in the Qualitipedia Discord server is mePlantyB0i2 (talk) 00:03, 27 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

PlantyB0i2, did you verify RareWare64 to PlantyB0i on-wiki using WikiAuthBot? If so, the usurpation request can be done straight away. Otherwise, we will need to post a note here, and wait at least a week or so, to give that user (assuming it was not you, of course) a chance to object to the usurpation request. Alternatively, let me check with my Trust and Safety supervisor, Owen, on another potential option. Dmehus (talk) 00:14, 27 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Recently I did use the authenticated command for WikiAuthBot and it tells me "authenticated as User:PlantyB0i2". What about the usurpation for my original PlantyB0i account? PlantyB0i2 (talk) 03:06, 28 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
PlantyB0i2, this is now Pictogram voting wait.svg In progress. Please see the link for the timeframe for resolution. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 03:23, 28 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
PlantyB0i, this has now been Yes check.svg done. Please do remember to add, and confirm, your valid e-mail address to your new account, should you forget your password. Additionally, I would also strongly recommend saving your password in a safe place, perhaps using KeePass or LastPass. Finally, if you do opt to enable two-factor authentication on your account, please also save your recovery tokens in a safe place. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 07:17, 11 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Delete my account I created by mistake

Hello, it's GreaterEspiritoSanto, I have created this account by mistake, I was thinking I would like returning to Miraheze, but then I regreted doing so, I would like if my account was deleted from Miraheze if possible. I thought I changed my mind but I didn't it. So please, disable it. GreaterEspiritoSanto (talk) 18:15, 31 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

GreaterEspiritoSanto, which account(s) are you referring to, and can you please clarify whether you want one or all of them actioned? Can you also clarify whether you wish to potentially recovery your renamed and locked account in the future (i.e., requires having a recovery e-mail address and/or remembering your password), or if you want all personally identifying information stripped from your account in addition to the forgoing (i.e., irreversible)? Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 14:53, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Lock and Vanish my account

I want my account to be locked and vanished. Ideally I would want it to be removed entirely, but I've heard that this is not possible. -ElliotRodger523 (talk) 19:20, 31 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

ElliotRodger523, can you please clarify whether you wish to be vanished (i.e., renamed and locked), or if you wish to have any personal information removed from your account, your account renamed, and locked (not recoverable)? If the former, please do remember your password and confirm you have a recovery e-mail address attached to your account. If the latter, please confirm by way of a reply here, and I'll forward yourself to the Trust and Safety team. Dmehus (talk) 14:51, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus I want it locked and renamed. Simple as that. -ElliotRodger523 (talk) 14:28, 3 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
ElliotRodger523, well, no, it's not that simple actually, as there are two very different implications. It's important that we clarify what you mean and want. Anyway, this has been
Yes check.svg done. Should you change your remind, you may either (a) e-mail Stewards at stewards(at)miraheze.org to request an unlock or (b) simply create another account, taking user accounts policy into consideration, of course. Should you wish to have any personally identifying information removed from your account, you may e-mail the Trust and Safety team at ts@miraheze.org, linking to the permalink for this thread as a required account ownership confirmation. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 16:20, 3 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Would someone please delete this post?

https://loathsomecharacters.miraheze.org/wiki/Blog:Complaint:_You_Need_To_Stop_MarioBobFan._(sorry_if_it_was_repost)#end . Its because it was cyberbullying me. MarioBobFan (talk) 02:20, 1 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@MarioBobFan: I already deleted the blog post, as it was pointless. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 02:35, 1 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I agree that blog post has been deleted, but this could be locally deleted. It's likely a mild Content Policy violation, but nothing that requires immediate deletion by Stewards. If local administration ignored reasonable local requests for deletion, then this could be considered. Dmehus (talk) 02:38, 1 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes. I am not going to be blocked anytime soon. MarioBobFan (talk) 02:41, 1 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Checkuser request

So a long time ago, a user named HalJordan008 was blocked across Qualitipedia for making comments defending Adolf Hitler. Recently, an army of sockpuppets have been editing his sandboxes, which comes across as suspicious. Here's all the sockpuppets I've found: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Even more suspicious is that another suspected sockpuppet edited HalJordan's sandbox, with this suspicious user claiming that it's their sandbox. --Blazikeye535 (talk) 16:33, 1 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Blazikeye535, while I agree that the accounts are likely related, I also see a lot of constructive editing. Moreover, except for only two users on one Qualitipedia wiki, the other users have not contributed to wikis where the another user as blocked. Please note that while Qualitipedia wikis may operate as a network of wikis, for the purposes of user accounts policy, we treat them as independent wikis. As such, local blocks, accompanied and, ideally, preceded by local warnings, must be in place on at least one of the wikis for all of the users. In other words, with cross-wiki Echo notifications, it's okay for you to warn the users on, say, one central wiki, but the warnings must still be in place for each user, and each warning must be specific to the local policy(ies) being violated by each user on separate wiki. I've also not seen any comments "defending Adolf Hitler," please note while the comments may or quite likely are in poor taste, that does not necessarily warrant a local block let alone a global lock. What matters is whether each wiki has !voted on or discussed adopting that as a local policy. Dmehus (talk) 15:03, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Is unlinking accounts possible?

When I've checked my account on CentralAuth, I've noticed my account is linked to 50 wikis when I only really use two and look on a couple of others and it's not reflective of how I use Miraheze. Many of them are linked because I looked on them once. Is unlinking accounts possible, if it is, is there some way I can do it or will a staff member have to do it for me? If it's possible I'll send more details of which I'd like unlinked. Raichu's Endless Nights (talk) 16:24, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Raichu's Endless Nights, unfortunately, while it's technically possible, it's also technically messy for a user's CA to have both linked and unlinked user accounts, so I'm going to mark this as
X mark.svg not done, but do feel free to share (publicly or privately to stewards(at)miraheze.org) on your rationale for why you had wanted this done. It's quite possible, or even likely, an alternate and better approach exists. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 16:30, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I thought if I got unlinked on the wikis I wasn't active on/didn't use it would make my central auth more organised and reflective of what I did use. Out of the fifty wikis I'm linked to, only eight of them are ones I'm either active on, read regularly, or are basic things for Miraheze like login, meta, template wiki etc, so only about 6%. I may be misunderstanding what central auth is for though so it's not really a problem, I was just wondering. Raichu's Endless Nights (talk) 17:24, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Raichu's Endless Nights: Unlinking an account is not possible, I'm afraid. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 17:26, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Raichu's Endless Nights, that's because autocreateaccount is enabled globally and cannot be disabled, at least not without strong local consensus on a particular wiki to do that. Looking at your CA, I don't see any unattached local user accounts. Was it possibly on a different account? Dmehus (talk) 17:53, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I don't think it was another account, I was just wondering if the central auth list could get shortened to just a few of the wikis but it doesn't matter then if it's a complicated thing. Raichu's Endless Nights (talk) 17:59, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

This user is ignoring me because he thinks I am doing stuff to get attention when I am not.

In the comments section of my blog post, (https://loathsomecharacters.miraheze.org/wiki/Blog:A_list_of_The_Fairly_OddParents_(Seasons_9_%26_10)_good_episodes#comment-7576) ShawnTehLogoBoi thought that I was doing that to get attention when I am not, and he said he's going to ignore me. Can someone please delete his comment? MarioBobFan (talk) 23:41, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Please note that the Stewards are not some kind of local admin who you can go to all the time for local disputes. As said many times before, please go to the local administrators first before coming to the Stewards' noticeboard. I highly doubt that the local administrators would ignore any question or concern of yours and if they do, depending on the administrator, they might have a good reason to do so. Agent Isai Talk to me! 23:44, 2 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
This report was made after you argued with two prominent local users on the wiki, in relation to a block which appears to have been validly created, after you made a list to push suggested changes with zero backup except referencing 'point of view' and were called out on it in the comments. The principle issue appears to be adding points without any reference to support them or ability to support them when called out. In light of this, it is no surprise why individual users would become frustrated and make comments as such within the same section, though I'd expect a local administrator to try and tone down the exchange. If I were to intervene, I would lock down the blog entirely as it seems the issues regarding you on local wikis, for which I've received many direct reports, seem to be ongoing. In other words, this is a waste of time, and I advise you to tread carefully and follow the advisory posted by Dmehus on your talk page. --Raidarr (talk) 13:14, 3 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Delete Colorpedia

The wiki Colorpedia is old (no contributions for the past 180 days) and per Dormancy Policy, can the wiki creators delete this wiki? Silicona (talk) 19:03, 3 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Silicona, is TheCubee your alternate account, looking at the wiki request? If so, can you login and request this? Dmehus (talk) 19:09, 3 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Silicona, assuming not, having looked into this a bit further, I can confirm the wiki is indeed eligible to be marked for deletion. The only reason it was not was a January 2022 SRE technical reset of all wikis' last RC activity dates. Therefore, in cases like this, Dormancy Policy does allow for manual deletion by Stewards. The reason I'm not sure this would be the best solution, though, is two-fold. Firstly, as an identified en-gb interface language user, why not request colourpedia.miraheze.org? That should be available. Secondly, manually deleting the wiki would not make it available immediately (it's still restorable). You'd still have to wait a minimum of two (2) weeks before it could be dropped by SRE. That's if SRE ran the script to backup and drop deleted wikis in two weeks. It's their discretion when they run that script. So I'd prefer the first option. Dmehus (talk) 19:16, 3 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
No, TheCubee is not my alternate account. Silicona (talk) 19:43, 3 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Silicona, thanks. Let me know how you wish to proceed. Dmehus (talk) 20:03, 3 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Silicona, it looks like that's been decided for you. MarioBonFan requested colorpediawiki be reopened. Thus, you can either (a) hold a local election there requesting bureaucrat and sysop permissions and stating how you plan to revamp the wiki or (b) use Special:RequestWiki to request colourpedia.miraheze.org, defining a clear purpose and scope for your wiki. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 01:51, 4 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Can stewards go to User:Silicona/Local election in Colorpedia? Silicona (talk) 18:32, 4 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Silicona You've not answered my question on why requesting colourpedia.miraheze.org would not work for you. Dmehus (talk) 21:14, 10 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Can someone please reopen Colorpedia?

I want this wiki to be reopened (https://colorpedia.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page) because there are still a handful of stuff to edit. MarioBobFan (talk) 01:28, 4 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

MarioBobFan, though you haven't contributed to this wiki, this seems like a reasonable request, so this has been Yes check.svg reopened. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 01:46, 4 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
YESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!! Your welcome. MarioBobFan (talk) 02:21, 4 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Wage's World

This wiki was manually closed 1 year, 5 months, 20 days and I won't count how many hours or minutes ago (also I'm not sure if my math is right) and still hasn't been deleted. Does anyone know why, and furthermore, whether or not it could be deleted now? FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 05:52, 4 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

FatBurn0000, your math seems to be correct, but it's not deleted because wikis' last RC dates were reset by SRE, so it'll probably be a little longer until the wiki is automatically deleted per Dormancy Policy. We can manually delete them per that policy, but I'm also not sure that's needed. Dmehus (talk) 05:25, 6 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus:: Question is though, why were the RECC dates reset in the first place? FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 05:46, 6 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Problem with account

Hi!

I'm having problems in logging in with my account GuidaStudenteFilosofia; it has an exception error and is not solved yet. So I'd like to remove the wiki GuidaStudenteFilosofia.miraheze.org from this account.

Moreover, I created another account MarcoV2097 which correctly can login everywhere (even on phabricator); I'll request again the same wiki from the new account.

Or, if it is possible, the property of the wiki could be transferred to the new account without deleting and re-creating the wiki.

Thanks  GuidaStudenteFilosofia (talk) 07:29, 5 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

While we cannot merge and delete your local user account(s) any longer, your best bet, as the closest thing to deletion, would be to e-mail the Trust and Safety team and request your account be renamed, anonymized, locked, and have any personally identifying information associated with the account stripped from the account. They will need proof of account ownership, but having created this thread, you can link to a permalink. As well, they typically ask you to provide your country of residence for legal and regulatory compliance purposes. You can request this via e-mail to ts(at)miraheze.org. I'll look for it my Trust and Safety capacity tomorrow evening. Thanks.
Separately, there does seem to be a long-standing technical issue with users creating two user accounts right after each other, and would be worth SRE looking into why that's happening, as it seems unique to Miraheze. Dmehus (talk) 05:22, 6 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not asking about the user account, it could be as it is now. My concern is about the wiki GuidaStudenteFilosofia.miraheze.org
We need to access Phabricator in order to link a custom domain but the admin or requestor of the wiki is the account GuidaStudenteFilosofia. That account has a configuration error as I can see, so that I created the new account MarcoV2097 who should become the admin of the wiki mentioned before.
On the other hand, if I can request the custom domain modify with my new account there is no problem I have to solve.
GuidaStudenteFilosofia (talk)
Hrm, what do you mean by "has a configuration error"? It may be possible SRE to fix your Phabricator account. Pinging Reception123 here. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 04:51, 7 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I asked for their help the 15/03/2022, but the account is still broken now and by the fact we need to start the project linked to the wiki, I'm trying to find an alternative solution. GuidaStudenteFilosofia (talk) 08:59, 7 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Inactive Bureaucrat

Request for removal of Bureaucrat/Founder User:OttoVonBisquick on the carnalinstincts wiki. Reason: User hasn't made any edits/has left the community for over a year (Ref: Contrib). I'm pretty much the sole contributor and Bureaucrat for this wiki. (Ref: Contrib) Transgressor (talk) 10:09, 6 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Transgressor, thank you for your request. Can you please notify the user that you've requested a Steward remove their bureaucrat bit via their locally user talk page if they do not respond to your note (within a week or so of you leaving it) that they wish to retain the local permission? If no response, we can remove it in about 5-7 days or so. If your wiki has other recently active contributors besides yourself, you should also add a note on your wiki's Main Page inviting users to provide any comments on OttoVonBisquick's local user talk page. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 04:57, 7 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus, no response from user. Requesting to proceed with the original issue, thanks. Transgressor (talk) 19:43, 13 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks Dmehus - done: see here. I'll get back to you in 5-7 days or earlier, should I receive feedback. Transgressor (talk)

Bot account rename

In accordance with my own request, I'd like to request that User:Arcverbot be renamed to "Chrsbot". — Arcversin (talk) 22:13, 8 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Chrs, though your bot was just renamed from ImportBot barely more than a month ago, I will Yes check.svg accept this global rename request, since it's in keeping with your main account's global rename, with the understanding that you should not request a global rename again without a very compelling reason. Dmehus (talk) 02:32, 10 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Chrs, Yes check.svg Done per above. Dmehus (talk) 02:38, 10 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Backrooms on wikia

I don't have much time to type this, but there is a page on the backrooms wikia that violates fandom guidelines, which could cause the wiki to get shut down. This is one of the largest wikis on wikia, and I don't even know whether it could be moved here. If it dies, 3 years and 2500 pages will be gone. Sheep42 (talk) 13:41, 9 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I'm not going to give away my wiki, I'm just wondering what to do with the other wiki. Sheep42 (talk) 15:50, 9 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Are you a local administrator on the other wiki? If so, removing it might be the most logical step to take. Otherwise, if you’re unaffiliated with the Fandom wiki and this page doesn’t exist on the Miraheze version then there’s not much you can do. Agent Isai Talk to me! 16:01, 9 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Use WikiTeam dumpgenerator.py (with difficulty as it currently requires the older Python 2.7) to dump the Backrooms Wiki and then import the dump into Miraheze. --Rob Kam (talk) 17:19, 9 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Delete woodland wiki

Can woodland be deleted? I'm merging it into another wiki.  Anpang📨  01:41, 10 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Anpang: This seems to be reasonable and in order; the deletion is Yes check.svg done. --Raidarr (talk) 11:48, 10 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Can someone please reopen Wage's World Wiki?

https://wage10.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:Log?type=managewiki&user=&page=&wpdate=&tagfilter=&wpfilters%5B%5D=newusers . It is because people can edit things and adding stuff to articles to help the articles. I will see if this works and the wiki could reopen. MarioBobFan (talk) 03:37, 10 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

This wiki was manually shut down and its intended community and creative concept is long defunct. I'm not sure how it's stayed up this long given it was closed down in 2020 I see why, recent changes data was reset probably on the eve of its deletion. Nonetheless, I require a much more compelling case to reopen here, ideally an original operator with contributions to the wiki. For my part I'm going to have to declare X mark.svg Not done. --Raidarr (talk) 11:42, 10 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I Yes check.svg concur with Raidarr here as well largely per the same or substantially similar rationale. Given the existing contributors, and multiple ones, had log actions and edits which together suggests some sort of coordinated action to close the wiki, I would also decline to reopen on that basis. Additionally, per the recent Dormancy Policy, personal public or private wikis largely or wholly about a certain subject wiki user may only be reopened by the subject user, or by Stewards with consent of either (i) an other party authorized by the subject user or (ii) the subject user themselves. I haven't assessed the extent to which this wiki is about the subject user, if at all, but the Main Page does suggest it may be, at least in part, Wage's personal "diary" of sorts. If there's any pages you wish to retain, you're welcome to export them using Special:Export, but you shouldn't just export all the pages, either. Dmehus (talk) 14:58, 10 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
OK. It could be reopened, and I don't why it hasn't been deleted. MarioBobFan (talk) 22:34, 10 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Given what Raidarr and I have described above, there's actually a more reasonable argument to manual deletion in accordance with Dormancy Policy here. Please also consider reviewing these "battle-tested English Wikipedia Manual of Style style guidelines with respect to indentation of your replies on talk pages (including noticeboards and user talk pages). Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 22:39, 10 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Can you please completely disable an account

Hey you remember a user named, Kingjorbs? Well, he told me recently that he doesn't want to be associated with the site anymore, so can you please disable his name and profile pic on the wikis he's on? Just like this for example: "MirahezeGDPR e86691ebea3a336a8f8643e6b5243b20". It's just to respect his wishes, and the only reason he did that is that he decided to retire from Miraheze as a whole, and just recently he said he didn't want to be associated with the site anymore. Pen567 (talk) 00:06, 11 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Pen567, we can definitely do that, sure, but that will have to be handled by the Trust and Safety team. I'll unlock the account now, so the user can provide a confirmation edit the Trust and Safety team, but can you also have the user e-mail the Trust and Safety team requesting that they want this done? For regulatory compliance purposes, they would also like to know the user's country of residence. Please ensure the user does not post this publicly, but rather e-mails directly to the Trust and Safety team. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 00:24, 11 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I am actually an alt of the user, Kingjorbs, and Pen567 just came up to me right now, and asked me to comfirm it, so yeah I want you to completely disable my OG account, as I don't want anything to do with the site anymore, and I used a random email that I can't remember so I can't do what you said. Also, please delete all my comments from the wikis I was on, and I've actually moved on to other things, that I'm not even interested in the site anymore. Also the reason why I did the stuff I did (getting blocked from the wikis I was on, is because I wanted to retire from the site as a whole, and just recently I don't want to be associated with it anymore. So please do me a favor and please completely disable my OG account, and pretty much this one too. Drockson321 (talk) 00:45, 11 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
If I unlock your Kingjorbs account, will you confirm that here? Dmehus (talk) 01:05, 11 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Drockson321, I've taken the liberty of unlocking your stated alternate account (Kingjorbs). Could you please login with that account and confirm Drockson321 as your alternate account? Additionally, can you confirm that you've e-mailed the Trust and Safety team with the requested information above? Dmehus (talk) 01:40, 11 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yes I have confirmed that Drockson is my alt account, and can I have a link to the email address to the Trust and Safety Team? Ik I'm late btw. Kingjorbs (talk) 19:53, 13 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Kingjorbs, Face-smile.svg Thank you for your account confirmation edit. The Trust and Safety team can be reached at ts(at)miraheze.org. In your e-mail message to them, they will also ask you for your country of residence, or, at minimum, whether you reside within either (a) the United Kingdom or (b) the European Economic Area. If you reside outside those geographic areas/locales, they will still process your request, but there are additional regulatory compliance requirements with respect to timelines for action, mainly, with regard to users in those areas.

Disable my account

I would no longer like to use the Miraheze site. Can my account be disabled? BraceletyFan77 (talk) 12:54, 11 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

BraceletyFan77, okay, this can be done. Please ensure you have a registered, confirmed e-mail address associated to your accoumt, that you remember your account password, and that you save your recovery tokens, if you have two-factor authentication enabled, as you will need them should you wish to either (a) e-mail Stewards stewards(at)miraheze.org to request an unlock or (b) e-mail the Trust and Safety team later to request an anonymization of your account in accordance with the Data Request Process. If possible, can you please reply here confirming the above conditions to be true? Dmehus (talk) 07:04, 12 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry for the late reply but yes, I remember my password, but I don't have an e-mail associated with my account. My account can be locked, I'm leaving Miraheze. - BraceletyFan77 (talk) 17:42, 17 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
BraceletyFan77, okay, I will lock your account. It's technically recoverable, but any private data associated with the account will remain with the account in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Policy, of course. Should you wish to change your mind and request removal in accordance with the GDPR, you will need to e-mail the Trust and Safety team at ts(at)miraheze.org, and they will very likely require a confirmation edit, so it will be imperative you remember the account's username and password in that case. Dmehus (talk) 18:32, 17 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yes check.svg Done. Dmehus (talk) 18:42, 17 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Request an exemption from the dormancy policy: Wordle Hub

Wordle Hub(https://wordles.miraheze.org/, dbname: wordles) is a wiki for compiling a list of all wordle-like games. This wiki has 600+ entries and now it becomes hard to find a new wordle from the web. Based on this, I request an exemption from the dormancy policy. Thank you. Lens0021 (talk) 07:02, 13 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Lens0021, I can take a look at this a bit later, but are you aware that, in many cases, wikis do not need an exemption to Dormancy Policy, as wikis are only closed after sixty (60) days of complete inactivity (i.e., no edits at all, and no local log actions at all, either). Even where wikis are closed, any bureaucrat can reopen the wiki. If bureaucrats are not active, any contributor, or even non-contributor, to that wiki can request a Steward to reopen it, and that would be done, unless it was clear there was a local community decision to close that wiki. Wikis are only marked as deleted after one-hundred eighty (180) days of zero edits, zero local log actions, etc. Even there still, wikis can be undeleted by Stewards, upon request from an existing contributor to the wiki. Dmehus (talk) 07:16, 13 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I see this would not be urgent. I just thought this will be required in the near future. Thank you for informing me of the details on the dormancy policy. Lens0021 (talk) 08:22, 13 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, thanks. Happy to help. I'll take a closer look at your wiki in terms of wiki activity, locally active community, and content on or before this weekend. Dmehus (talk) 02:47, 14 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

[Ajhalili2006] Request for userpage redirect for my former username

I would like to setup an user page redirect for my old username before the global account rename request on the Login Wiki and also request to possibly lock out that username for abuse prevention. Thanks in advance!

--Andrei Jiroh Halili (message me via Miraheze Meta user talk or local wiki) 08:09, 13 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Andrei Jiroh Halil, I can definitely do this, but first you will need to recreate your old username as an alternate user account, while logged in to your main account first, as otherwise we would be creating a global user page for a non-existent user. It will also have to be an {{interwiki redirect}}, as hard redirects are incompatible with the GlobalUserPage extension. Please let me know how you wish to proceed. Dmehus (talk) 02:44, 14 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus, I finished adding the {{Interwiki redirect}} on my old username, but it would be nice if {{Soft redirect 2}} is available on LoginWiki since I link my current username's profile instead or going through Meta and also suits better in my case. Andrei Jiroh Halili (message me via Miraheze Meta user talk or local wiki) 09:20, 14 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Andrei Jiroh Halili, thanks for your reply. I can definitely import Template:Soft redirect 2 to Loginwiki, that's not a problem. However, we do prefer not to create pages in User: namespace on Meta Wiki and especially Loginwiki, particularly as Loginwiki serves the global user pages for registered user accounts. Otherwise, it would create potential identification issues if a user subsequently registered that user account and your existing {{soft redirect 2}} template linked to your user page. If not, please ensure you are logged in when you create your requested döppelganger account. Dmehus (talk) 00:36, 15 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Andrei Jiroh Halili, though it's quite possibly you, would you mind replying here from your main account confirming that DekuPH2006AJHalili is you, since that user was created from a logged out state, as per this log action? Dmehus (talk) 19:54, 15 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I confirm that @DekuPH2006AJHalili is me, with committed identity hash 97c57d1a0e25e83ec7c2b3e6d41ee47fc6521661951a0800afaeac6f4d1ab28612dc2a4c07a3268f5e6408a2ca9afea66e80e5a8509bbec03201a75afd4482bd on both sides. I also updated the interwiki redirect link to point to my global user page instead.
ps: Should I also confirm that from my döppelganger account too just in case? Andrei Jiroh Halili (message me via Miraheze Meta user talk or local wiki) 03:47, 16 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, that's great. Nah, that's fine, since the döppleganger account already stated this here, but that is fine either way. Dmehus (talk) 03:52, 16 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, I'll mark this thread as resolved and archived since @Dmehus says that's fine on soft redirect stuff. Please do not reply to this thread. Andrei Jiroh (Miraheze Meta user talk or local wiki | contribs across wiki farm | send email) 13:51, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Requesting exemption from dormancy policy for Godherja wiki (godherja.miraheze.org)

Due to the nature of developing a total conversion mod for a game, there will be breaks in activity where all the information is up to date and there isn't much to add until a new patch is dropped. As a result, we would like to request an exemption from the dormancy policy. :)

Why was Thyrtu blocked?

https://terribletvshows.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Thyrtu . Also, I need the reason of why he was blocked. MarioBobFan (talk) 05:12, 16 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

MarioBobFan, Thyrtu is not blocked on terribletvshowswiki. There were, however, suggestions on the companion wiki of user accounts policy abuse occurring. As such, the user has been now globally locked as an illegitimate sockpuppet of RickERB23, who has been encouraged to take some time away from Miraheze, reflect on their behaviour, and then properly appeal firstly to Stewards when they're willing to abide by and respect our global policies. We will then concurrently assist the user in properly appealing their local blocks. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 05:24, 16 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Please also note that you do not need to ask at stewards' noticeboard why every user is locally blocked. You should ask these questions locally first. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 05:26, 16 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
OK. MarioBobFan (talk) 16:00, 16 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
