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.

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)
I've reached out to Transgressor via Discord and confirmed there has been no response since the creation of this request, and indeed no activity for a very long time before. Thus, I have Yes check.svg removed all advanced permissions in light of the user's departure, per CoC regarding 'stepping down' and per reasonable concerns expressed to me regarding access control in light of a founder who evidently went completely absent without notice + the co-manager's near singlehanded development of the wiki since then. --Raidarr (talk) 14:19, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

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.

Yes check.svg Done. Dmehus (talk) 18:42, 17 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

[Ajhalili2006] Request for userpage redirect for my former username

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. :)

If you want to check out the mod and its popularity you can check its workshop page: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2326030123 ReciterofPoetry (talk) 02:56, 15 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@ReciterofPoetry: my apologies for the delay in processing. I see the wiki already has a well developed theme and the content already there. That said I also note the persistent activity, ongoing development and the many areas of the wiki that appear to need expansion or update (red links, stubs, incomplete content/categories and the like). An exemption is best requested when the break of activity is there and when the content is up to date for what it needs to be to its audience, not as a 'preventative measure' earlier in a wiki's development.
So, I'll follow by asking which applies. Is the wiki still in active development? If so, based on the activity so far I think there will be no DP issues and you won't need this until later on when it is more finished, which would help the longevity of the exemption that's put in place (to reiterate, exemptions are 'indefinite' but also subject to periodic review especially when they've been in place longer). If you think it's reached that point and exemption is still needed or you expect the/your activity to dip unusually (less than one/a few updates a month), I can reassess based on the content that is there right now. --Raidarr (talk) 14:02, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The Wiki has not reached a state of completion just yet. It did enter a hiatus period of seven or eight months a while ago due to one update taking extraordinarily long to release but that was abnormal. That period was the main motive for asking for an exemption since I did need to log in and manually change it several times.
So all that being said, the wiki is indeed still in active development. :) ReciterofPoetry (talk) 00:08, 28 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
ReciterofPoetry, given the above, I think it would be best for you to re-apply for an exemption to Dormancy Policy when your wiki is largely complete. If your wiki's activity is such that you have to reopen your wiki multiple times in a given year, then we could consider an exemption while the wiki is still under construction. Dmehus (talk) 05:31, 28 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I'll go with that line of thought then, no worries. ReciterofPoetry (talk) 09:08, 29 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Can you exempt Food Dye Studios Wiki from Deletion?

This is because, my wiki is almost finished and I don't want my wiki being erased. I want people to able to go to this wiki for visiting information about Super T from the comic book series called, "The Building Showdown". Knowing information about this show and anything that's similar to it. It has some information about the website. Detailing things about what an FDS Account is, its apps and so much more. Kew1119 (talk) 15:47, 18 April 2022 (UTC)Kew1119[reply]

Kew1119, thank you for your request for an exemption to Dormancy Policy. I will aim to review your request later today, but to ensure there's no misunderstanding, most wikis do not need an exemption. This is because they have at least some level of regular activity. You should, therefore, note that wikis are only marked as "closed" after 60 days of complete inactivity (excluding user names and CentralAuth automatically attaching users to your wiki upon their visitation). Wikis are only marked as deleted after 180 days of complete inactivity (excluding the same as above and no log actions, no edits, nothing). They are still restorable at this stage by Stewards upon request of an existing contributor. As well, it's important to note that wiki databases are not dropped when they are marked for deletion; it can be anywhere from a minimum of two weeks after being marked for deletion and indefinitely; the decision is based on SRE's needs. Finally, for public wikis, one of our SRE volunteers regularly uploads XML dumps of all public wikis, usually at least semi-annually. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 16:00, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

change my name

change it to “that guy in the corner” Poop fart748 (talk) 15:47, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Poop fart748, thank you for requesting a global rename. That username is overly generic and That guy [...] seems to be a meme used by cross-wiki vandalism only accounts. Therefore, if I might ask you to pick a sufficiently specific username to identify yourself, one which doesn't violate our Username Policy, of course. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 15:54, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
How about king of grass Poop fart748 (talk) 18:05, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Poop fart748, King of grass should be fine, yes. Will you plan to keep that name for at least the next 12-24 months, if not longer? Dmehus (talk) 18:12, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah Poop fart748 (talk) 18:16, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
WAIT QUEEN OF GRASS NOT KING Poop fart748 (talk) 18:20, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Poop fart748, locked in, final choice? Dmehus (talk) 18:33, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yes Poop fart748 (talk) 18:36, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Poop fart748, thank you. While you may have locked in your choice in name. Unfortunately, recent events have superceded that, and your account is now Yes check.svg locked back up in their sock drawer. Please see also User talk:Octahedron foundation. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 01:46, 19 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Enabling SemanticMediaWiki for Conworlds

On behalf of the Constructed Worlds Wiki, I am requesting the SemanticMediaWiki extension to be enabled on the wiki. Thank you!  Miraheze Logo.svg centrist16 | P mail.svg | Discord color D.svg 02:02, 19 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Centrist16, this has been Yes check.svg done. Please note that this is an experimental feature, may be disabled at a moment's notice with or without warning, and that you should retain regular XML dumps of your wiki. There was an uncaught issue that did not produce itself during the testing phase on our test environment. It will require SRE being available to run a MediaWiki maintenance script after the Steward enables. We will update the documentation. Anyway, Universal Omega, has now Yes check.svg re-enabled it following the MediaWiki maintenance script being run. As well, you should know that it disabled your WikiBase Client extension, as it was incompatible. Dmehus (talk) 03:23, 19 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Dormancy Exemption Policy

Hi, I wrote back in mid March to see if I could get an exemption to dormancy checkmark on my page, someone responded but I never heard anything further. Is this something I can get please? Thank you, Ellohyin
My previous post with steward response is pasted below.
Exemption from Dormancy Policy
I would like to ask that My Wiki have the check box for Exemption from Dormancy Policy ticked. The wiki is a private, personal project/co-op with one other. The wiki is strictly for information to do with the project and will only be sporadically added to at this point. We have outlined the majority of the information that has been and will be added. Thank you. Ellohyin (talk) 01:31, 16 March 2022 (UTC)
I'll aim to review your request this weekend, as this needs more time. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 05:26, 17 March 2022 (UTC) Ellohyin (talk) 10:17, 19 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Can you please globally lock my account?

I’m starting to lose some interest in these Qualitipedia wikis and feel like I did a bit of a poor job on some of them (e.g. creating lots of articles in very little time on the Shows & Episodes wikis, some were biased and nitpicky - even though it was because of the episodes being in their show articles' bad/good episode lists anyway. Although I stopped doing that in recent months). I’ll still scroll through some of these wikis at times, albeit never signed in. Connall2021 (talk) 13:31, 19 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Connall2021: I'm very sorry to see you leave the platform. :( DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 13:41, 19 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I share DarkMatterMan4500's thoughts and am sorry to see you leave Miraheze as a user and hope that you will one day decide to rejoin us. Yes check.svg Locked. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:13, 19 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Connall2021, I echo Reception123's and DarkMatterMan4500's thoughts as well, and, additionally, wish to let you know to be sure to remember your account password, should you wish to request an unlock of this account. Should you change your mind, you may e-mail Stewards at stewards(at)miraheze.org. Dmehus (talk) 05:09, 20 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Please Delete TurtleWiki

Following this diff in which both TurtleWiki bureaucrats have agreed to delete the wiki on the pretense that it is a private wiki for personal world-building and the founder no longer wishes the content to be available online, I would like to request said expedited deletion of TurtleWiki. Additionally, if possible, I would like to have all of TurtleWiki's content & data removed from Miraheze, including its content archives (as referenced in the Miraheze ToU). Thank you for understanding, Turtle84375 (talk) 07:45, 21 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Turtle84375: while there may be followup with addressing backups and other technical means I am less aware of (especially with the invocation of ToU), the specified wiki is Yes check.svg deleted by reasonable request, natural right as a more private wiki and properly gathered consent. --Raidarr (talk) 10:39, 21 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Raidarr: Thank you, I will await said followup. Turtle84375 (talk) 19:58, 22 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Request for OAuth2 client approval for client ID 9d641669f3adc6d56cdedb54350ea77b

NOTE: This OAuth client approval request was from this Phabricator Maniphest task, but requested to be moved here by an sysadmin for visibility.

I would like to request for consumer client approval of the development OAuth2 client for the Verification Endpoint API Discord bot and details about how we implement it are within this wiki page on Recap Time squad Wiki.

Due to how we deploy stuff in Autocode (we use separate OAuth client ID-secret combo for production, among other secrets), I would like to approve the development OAuth client first, and then I'll request for the production one soon when start shipping features to production in the future. I would also like to remove the OAuth1.0a version of it with its client ID a09e77cfd46050e4d875af5e09579c77 since I decided to use the OAuth2 version of it instead.

@RhinosF1: The code for my OAuth2 client implementation is available for review on https://gitlab.com/RecapTime/infra/rtapp-verify-backend-autocode/-/tree/main, though its not yet production-ready so I'm currently testing it in development deploys and I'm not sure if authorization_code grant type is allowed here since I'm being thrown by some errors saying that grant_type isn't valid during token exchange process. Andrei Jiroh (Miraheze Meta user talk or local wiki | contribs across wiki farm | send email) 15:21, 21 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I also want to request OAuth client approval for the production client too (client ID: ea15c17b8ac9979831462531453c06e5), since it also uses the same code, through production release processes apply. Andrei Jiroh (Miraheze Meta user talk or local wiki | contribs across wiki farm | send email) 02:54, 22 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you for your request. A member of SRE will review this soon. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:33, 22 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Andrei Jiroh, I've asked a member of the SRE team to action your reasonable request. Dmehus (talk) 15:58, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Approved, transparent and links to the source code. Paladox (talk) 16:16, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, mate, and also I'll mark this thread as resolved and archived. Andrei Jiroh (Miraheze Meta user talk or local wiki | contribs across wiki farm | send email) 03:36, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Crappy GachaTubers Wiki

Should this wiki be closed now? The REQC about closing it has been around for a while now. Also, Dreadful Restaurants and Foods Wiki is closed, however is it possible that the Hungry Jack's page could be imported to the Chill Place if @TigerBlazer: is okay with it? I would like the page to be kept as it's about more than just the quality of the food and much rather the company overall. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 07:59, 22 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I'm inclined towards outright deletion of CGTW both by the vote and by its inherent contradiction with the content policy. That said, as an (early) voter on the matter I will defer until I've consulted with Dmehus on taking the action. --Raidarr (talk) 08:42, 22 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
FatBurn0000, there are definitely some pages (at least half) which violate Content Policy, some more seriously and others in a more mild way. In terms of your local RfC, which you only were able to get started due to my disabling the Moderation extension, to allow a community voice besides just the sole bureaucrat and administrator, there is a somewhat weak consensus in favour of either deletion or closure, renaming, and rebranding into a different wiki, focusing on crappy gachatube content/videos, as opposed to chiefly crappy gachatubers/persons, as it is now, looking strictly at the nosecount of four in favour of either deletion or closure, rename, and rebrand and two opposed, including the bureaucrat/sysop, FranciscoLol2009. Ordinarily, I might normally prefer locking the wiki and making it private such cases, to allow for the wiki to be rebranded and rebuilt, but since the original wiki request lacked clarity and specificity, with former wiki creator SA 13 Bro raising concerns, presumably, with respect to Content Policy and former wiki creator Amanda Catherine feeling it was "fine" and approving it (which, as an aside, is a bit ironic since Amanda Catherine was not one of the more liberal wiki creators and SA 13 Bro tended to be, at times, based on my observations). Secondarily, since FranciscoLol2009 has made only two edits and two log actions, one of which was to reinstate the Moderation extension despite not being sufficiently active enough to appropriately moderate edits from non-automoderated users wanting to participate in the discussion, I have no confidence any needed remediation would take place. Moreover, excluding redirects in (Main) namespace, non-Content Policy violation pages, and the local RfC, there were a grand total of less than 10 stub-class (or less) content pages. Thus, there would be no loss in content. Finally, I do feel any renamed and rebranded wiki request, from whoever wants to take it up, whether it be FatBurn0000, FranciscoLol2009, or someone else, should have to go through a more thorough vetting by wiki creators. Accordingly, this has been Yes check.svg deleted. Dmehus (talk) 04:03, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I request to globally lock my account. This account is no longer active, and I've since moved to User:ZeusDeeGoose. This is to protect it against vandalism and other malicious purposes. ZeusDeeGod (talk) 20:41, 22 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Request to Block Posting@取るに足らないwiki

I request to block User:障害は個性@取るに足らないWiki from posting. This user has been vandalizing pages and we are in the process of requesting a posting block from the local administrator, but the response has been delayed.Best regards. 1108-Kiju/talk 01:59, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

1108-Kiju Yes check.svg Locally blocked for one month per your articulated rationale. Please do let me know if you see any related or potentially related suspicious behaviour from torunitaranwiki. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 04:28, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus: I did a lot of reverting on the torunitaranwiki from my recent edits on that wiki. I actually happened to notice the vandalism yesterday, and swiftly reverted the vandalism when it was in progress at the time. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 10:06, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Put the Crappy GachaTubers Wiki back up

Greetings, I recently noticed my wiki, Crappy GachaTubers Wiki, got taken down because I was inactive. However, I'd like for the Wiki to be back up, I'll do a few changes to it like:

Removing the Moderation

Updating the Wiki Rules

And more important changes

If the wiki can get back up, I would really appreciate it FranciscoLol2009 (talk) 09:51, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@FranciscoLol2009: It was actually taken down due to Content policy concerns, and due to the nature of what the wiki's intent was after it was set up. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 10:08, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Not exactly or exclusively, no. Dmehus (talk) 15:56, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
FranciscoLol2009, please see above. There's nothing precluding you from re-requesting a replacement wiki, on a new subdomain, one with a clearer purpose, scope, and topic(s) for your wiki, preferably one which focuses on crappy gachatube content, episodes, or shows, rather than on the tubers, or people, themselves. With less than five or six non-Content Policy violating and non-redirect pages, it should not take you look at all to recreate it. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 15:56, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I would like my account locked please

Because I've become obsessed with this platform and I think its time I actually quit for good. I've shared my time enough here. Ninjacleod89 (talk) 19:45, 23 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Ninjacleod89, Yes check.svg Done, per your request.

ManageWiki Change Request@空想シリーズ/ふぁんシリーズWiki

Since the bureaucrat rights have been removed from this wiki, it is no longer possible to manage the wiki settings. We also request the reinstatement of the bureaucrat and the removal of the chizunet:special:ManageWiki/permissions/空鉄民(一般)#mw-section-group check, as this wiki is now able to grant itself bureaucrat rights simply by registering an account. Best regards. 1108-Kiju/talk 05:09, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

1108-Kiju, as an interim measure, I have Yes check.svg removed the autopromotion for that user group, due to their not apparently having been any community consensus for this major permission change. Thanks for cleaning up the inadvertently autopromoted users. This should leave one local administrator, who seems fine, given their volume of local edits. This Japanese user group isn't actually equivalent to bureaucrat, though, as it has no managewiki rights. I will investigate deletion of the custom group and restoration of the bureaucrat group tomorrow, but you'd still need to have a local discussion establishing requirements for bureaucrats to be elected and when it may be revoked. Dmehus (talk) 06:19, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you for addressing this.I will raise a discussion about bureaucrats on the said wiki. 1108-Kiju/talk 06:36, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I have a question

For some weird reason, I am not able to edit the majority of my preferences on Wretched YouTube Videos Wiki. Does anyone know why? FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 10:24, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Editing your preferences (the editmyoptions userright) is only granted to 'crats on that wiki. You can see this at Special:UserGroupRights IAmChaos (talk) 15:15, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Could I please hold a bureaucrat election for my wiki?

Hello, My friend/co-manager of my contest contacted a member of your team earlier today in request of changing bureaucrat of my song contest. I believe I have followed the right method on how to follow the election process you told us to follow. The wiki page is Majestic Song Contest with the talk page we created for the notice provided in the link below: https://majesticsongcontest.miraheze.org/wiki/Talk:Main_Page

Any help or further guidance would be amazing, Thank you in advance. Benjamin Hardie (talk) 21:27, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Benjamin Hardie, who is seeking election as a bureaucrat on that wiki, and where is the local election? If you're just looking to have the election locally advertised, I can definitely add a local sitenotice for you on that wiki. Dmehus (talk) 21:36, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I am looking to become the bureaucrat on the wiki, taking over from one of the previous managers (the current bureaucrat).
I added the information onto the link I sent you which will serve as the page where individuals will be able to voice their objections towards me being made bureaucrat. I will promote the wikipedia page on our facebook group (for the contest) so individuals are made aware of it.

Global block request: there is a user who keeps vandalizing a wiki every one or two days.

Greetings. I am an editor for the CLG Wiki and over the past few months, there has been a user who either keeps constantly blanking pages or replacing all their content with mostly foul language. This user in particular is named DVD Haas. Of all of his alt. accounts, Wheres the brown boy, Jordanene Jordan ene 7439 7 4 3 9, Vuck You, and so much more (see here for a full list, they're all created for the sole purpose of disruptive editing and vandalism. For example, in one page, GBH Productions to be specific, he replaced everything with "Taken from arthur". Not only that, but he has created several spam pages such as one that threatens one of the admins on the CLG Wiki. If you look at the history of these articles, you can see that he vandalizes these pages to such an extent that they not only get destroyed pretty much every day, but it's also easy to trace which accounts he operates. In fact, he can create up to four accounts a day just to vandalize the site. But not just on the CLG Wiki, but also on its sister site as well; Company Bumpers Wiki: [1]

Today, DVD Haas created three accounts, December 19 2007, You look so fat, and Oreo Cookies with the same goal in mind. I have worries that this cycle will continue with little to no measures taken to protect the CLG Wiki if this user will proceed to create multiple sockpuppets every few or so days with no end on sight. So, I am looking to see if you stewards can do anything regarding this ongoing conflict. Specifically, is it possible that a user who attacks a wiki for weeks on end be IP banned or globally blocked? --Camenati (talk) 23:59, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Camenati: We are well aware of this user constantly creating new sockpuppet accounts to circumvent local blocks and global locks by misusing multiple web hosts or open proxies, kind of like the other 2 users who's also been doing this for months, with the former doing this for nearly 10 months as of this writing, and the latter doing this since back in June 2021. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 00:08, 26 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Camenati, it is not DVD Haas, despite some local administrators on that/those wikis claiming that it is. Any sock vandal accounts are locked on sight, so your best bet is to report them at #miraheze-cvt on IRC. As well, Stewards will typically perform a CheckUser to soft rangeblock the underlying IP address(es). Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 05:51, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Dormancy Policy Exemption for the STARHOPPER Wiki


I'd like to request an exemption to the dormancy policy for my wiki located at https://starhopper.miraheze.org/wiki

My reasoning:

It is a wiki meant to archive information sourced from a far more disorganized worldbuilding Discord server I operate in tandem with a friend group. The Discord is private between myself and contributors, but having the wiki allows us to share information to a public viewer base, which ultimately lets fans achieve a deeper and more cohesive understanding of Starhopper lore and artwork without the need to invite them to a disorganized Discord server hosting channels for all the various topics.

Transcribing information from the Discord server currently is an arduous process, and even when the bulk is finished, the Discord server hosts fairly irregular discussion over details in the setting, and whenever some facet of lore is fully established, it is deemed fit to put up onto the wiki and made accessible to others.

My concern is that there may be periods where the project is shelved for some time, potentially exceeding the dormancy policy standards.

I understand that storage space is a premium, and the content I and my friends create is purely for entertainment, but if there is at all a possibility I may have the wiki permanently active, or at least amended to have a far greater lifespan before being considered for deletion, I would be very grateful.

Thank you for your time and patience. EXOBIOTA (talk) 07:03, 26 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

EXOBIOTA, before considering this request, when did you create this wiki, and are you aware that wikis will be unaffected by Dormancy Policy so long as there is at least one logged action or minor edit every sixty (60) days? Furthermore, wikis as such can be reopened by any local bureaucrat, or by a Steward upon request of an existing wiki contributor/editor, via stewards' noticeboard or requests for reopening wikis. Finally, if there's been no edits or logged actions in more than 180 calendar days, they're merely marked for deletion, but still restorable by Stewards under the same conditions.

I request the deletion of the following wikis

Hello everyone. I apologize in advance. I request the removal of the following wikis for several reasons and the main one is for some errors made that prevent the wiki from progressing and others that are for tasks in Phabricator but I prefer the removal:

  • ucroniasalt.miraheze.org
  • hispano76.miraheze.org
  • hispano67.miraheze.org

Can and should I become an admin?

Requesting to increase $wgExpensiveParserFunctionLimit

Hello, I'm a bureaucrat on "https://grayravens.com" (database name: "pgrwiki"). We would like to request to increase the Expensive Parser Function Limit ($wgExpensiveParserFunctionLimit) on our wiki from 99 to at least 200 (250 if possible?). The reason behind this is because we have some pages where we use plenty of Expensive Parser Functions and 99 is simply not enough for some pages. Increasing it to at least 200 would help a lot and we shouldn't run into more issues for quite some time if it's increased. Spectrazzz (talk) 09:33, 1 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Spectrazzz: after conferring with SRE, I've Yes check.svg gone ahead and raised your EPFL to 200.

Is a local election necessary here?

I requested reopening eldenring.miraheze.org recently after it was abandoned last September. There were basically no edits before the closure anyway, so I'm more or less salvaging the domain as its now sole contributing user. I set up a local election to get bureaucrat/administrator permissions, per what I've read from the site policies, but given there are no other active users I'm wondering if it's necessary? Feels a bit silly to wait for a week for an election that will most likely have no contest, especially when it's been running for a few days already. Sorry if I'm jumping the gun here, not sure how strictly the policies are enforced. — praske talk 15:25, 1 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Given that you are the only active user (and indeed, you're the only other contributor aside from the founder), your apparent commitment to the wiki's concept and apparent effort to understand Miraheze operation, I am comfortable going ahead and Yes check.svg calling the election in your favor with authorization to do whatever needs to be done for the wiki's continued development. --Raidarr (talk) 17:58, 1 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
