Angrybirdsfan2005: It appears that someone can't write a blog due to a problem. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Angrybirdsfanonmiraheze (talkcontribs)

Now there's another user called "IHateIAmEiji" vandalizing. Please also lock his/her account ASAP. --Seewater514 (talk)

reopen didaprowiki

Hi all, I red that our wiki which was in standbye for team decision reasons could have been deleted, could you help to verify if I could reopen it and get back some works ? Here my last register Thank you Philippe

dormancy - coming

Dear Steward, sorry for dormancy. I couldn't input time in the wiki creation these last weeks. As i will have some labour prior to publish to outside world, i do not need avisibility for a couple of weeks. But please keep the wiki running, at lrast private.

Thanks on forward.


Ban Iamawesome34

Reason: Possibly sock user of SupBob678, not only that but he made a hate page out of Trevor807, which it's unacceptable.


Ban two SupBop678 socks

SupBob678 had created a lot of socks, and he made a page out of me, and Trevor807. Please locked both of them. Here are the socks: 1. Iamagod 2. Supbob678the2nd


User merge

The following accounts need to be merged into a single one, they all belong to the same person. So here's the ones to merge:

This is the final account where to merge all of the above:

Notice how the 3rd seems to be the same as the final on, but it uses a capital 'i' instead of an 'l'.--Wedhro (talk) 11:01, 13 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Anyone?--Wedhro (talk) 22:49, 15 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

One more merge: Special:CentralAuth/Ilkanu needs to be merged into Special:CentralAuth/Ikanu.--Wedhro (talk) 10:20, 16 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Yet another merge: Special:CentralAuth/Giratina_temp needs to be merged into Special:CentralAuth/Giratina_^_^ and the latter should be renamed as "Giratina_^-^" --Wedhro (talk) 16:13, 16 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry for the delay. I've done the first and third request. For the second request, the account you want to be merged does not seem to exist. John (talk) 19:02, 16 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@John: Oops, there was a typo, it's actually Special:CentralAuth/IIkanu--Wedhro (talk) 09:09, 18 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Yes check.svg Done John (talk) 17:52, 18 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@John: Thanks, but maybe there was a misunderstanding: both Special:CentralAuth/Maestro_venerabiIe and Special:CentralAuth/Maestro_venerabile still exist. They should be merged and the user should be able to login with the latter name (ending in "le", with a lowercase "l") using the password/email of the first one (ending in "Ie", with a capital "I").--Wedhro (talk) 07:55, 22 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, that was certainly my mistake! Should all be fixed now. John (talk) 10:17, 22 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Status Change

Since I do not know the official creator of my wiki I therefore can't get in contact with them.

I would like my status changed from Administrator to Bureaucrat.

It is this wiki: Life Wiki.

Thank you!

Checkuser Request

Can you please do a checkuser on Gucci Rsbbit and DuchessSponge5000? Some users think that the former is a sockpuppet of the latter. --Just Amelia (talk) 15:19, 24 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Unfortunately it does not appear to be possible, as the former account is stale (we do not store CU data for longer than three months). -- Void Whispers 16:17, 24 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Wikis are not working

Here is a list of my Gyaanipedia wikis

Please check it some of my wikis are not working. I request Miraheze to resolve this problem as soon as possible. Thank you so much. Shaunak Chakraborty (talk)

@Shaunak Chakraborty: Could you be more specific about what is "not working"? Are you having trouble accessing them? Getting an error? Reception123 (talk) (C) 11:35, 26 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Shaunak Chakraborty: You are getting the 404s because some of those wikis do not have custom domains currently configured. Please make requests on Phabricator for a Custom domain. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:02, 26 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Reception123: I had configured custom domains on 2018 only. When I last checked these wikis probably on August or September 2019 it was working properly with custom domains. I think the problem is somewhere else because now these wikis are not accessing through their subdomains also.

Closure of Requests for Comment/Examknow appeal

It looks like here it takes a long while for Requests for Comment to be closed and are sometimes left for a long time. This request is very specific and I do not think it will have more votes so I think it should be closed soon by a Steward. DeeM28 (talk) 18:16, 26 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]


All the Infoboxs in my wiki is imported from Wikipedia, but it looks different in my wiki. In mobile view the light grey box is not visible which is visible in Wikipedia.

A problem with profiles

I saw that all of my user pages are now empty. Every other user page I checked also has this problem. --Seewater514 (talk) 02:17, 30 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

You rollback that and warn that user -- Sourav Talk... 05:47, 30 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
The blankings weren't done by a user, I believe it is a glitch that happened when Miraheze updated the comments. I checked to see if the blankings can be undone like you suggested, but they don't appear in any user page's revision history. --Seewater514 (talk) 15:58, 30 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

What the hell?

Excuse the language, but what the hell is going on? In comment sections, all users are now "anonymous user #1" and our profiles have been emptied... Someone please help --SaltylakeXD (talk) 30 April 2020 (UTC)

@SaltylakeXD: We apologize for this. An update of SocialProfile was necessary and it caused some bugs. We will fix these ASAP. Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:16, 30 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Login troubles

After the hosting change, I have not been able to log into my wiki. I always get the following error: There seems to be a problem with your login session; this action has been canceled as a precaution against session hijacking. Please resubmit the form.

The same error message appears when I try to register a new user. What can I do? If you could answer via email to (redacted), I would that a lot, since I am posting this as anonymous user, because I can't log in. ;) Thanks a lot! Kjell 22:21, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

(non-steward comment) This is a long-standing problem that nobody seems to have been able to solve... if I recall correctly, the problem dates back to the very beginnings of Miraheze itself. Usually, if you just resubmit the form (often times you will have to reenter your password), you will then be logged in. Make sure you do not refresh/reload the page after receiving that error message - just reenter your password if necessary and attempt to login again. On a separate and unrelated note, please don't post your email address publicly on-wiki. Amanda Catherine (talk) 22:37, 30 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I just tried that, but it doesn't work. The same error message appears time and again and I am still not able to log in. Any help appreciated! 00:07, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

The only solution we seem to have so far is to clear all Miraheze related cookies, then visit Special:UserLogout on the wiki, and then attempt to log in. -- Void Whispers 00:48, 1 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks. This time it worked! Wouldn't have figured it out myself. 19:33, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

Resigning from steward position

There are many duties for me to fulfill within this project, and the work as a steward is 'just too much' to keep doing that properly and staying up-to-date. As such, I have decided I am - voluntarily - going to resign from my position as a steward. I am sure my fellow stewards will do an excellent job, even without me. Please remove my rights and groups I am associated with in this role. Thanks for the many years as a steward, and at least I'll still be around in the SRE roles. :) Southparkfan (talk) 21:08, 4 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

( non-steward comment) Well from my understanding many of these wikis have common admins/bureaucrats and perhaps they did not appreciate the comment that you made on another wiki. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:11, 6 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
He has also shown hostility towards our wikis on other websites like TheTopTens and DeviantArt. He once even called one of our users a "manchild" on his DeviantArt account. Therefore, we also blocked him on multiple other wikis to prevent possible conflicts. As well as his terrible behavior on the wikis themselves like the comment Reception123 has shown. And, if I'm correct, only one case like this is not enough to get globalled. Especially when the user in particular acts like this. Kesner (talk) 15:35, 6 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I am not asking to be unbanned on TF&HW, but only the other three. And no, if you check out the link that you provided, I didn’t even say “manchild”. General I80 (talk) 17:14, 6 May 2020 (UTC) General I80[reply]

Request for wiki 'elliot' to be exempt from inactivity rules

Hi -- I maintain a personal wiki here titled 'elliot' ( I use it as sort of a personal wiki where I share my ideas with others. I don't update it super actively though, so I find myself having to re-activate it sometimes. I'm worried that the inactivity rules will allow someone to take control of this wiki if I go 60 days without an edit in the future. Is it possible to make this wiki exempt from the inactivity rules?

Thanks, Elliot

I'm not sure whether this should be granted, however just to note under the current policy wikis that are private may not be adopted by users who did not have access to it prior to the closure. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:08, 6 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
