New wiki

Yes, it was my fault for lack of time. But now I'm focusing mainly on just these wikis: nanatsunotaizai, tokyoghoul, thehushhushsaga; And the new one that would be shingekinokyojin

Wiki Request

Hey there,

I mistakenly requested a new wiki at a custom domain (request 3034).

Could I request that the domain be, rather, a subdomain styled as: overon.miraheze.org?

Thanks for your time.

All the best, -Veldias

Un lock on my wiki

Can you unlock me on my wiki nasa.miraheze.org or make the user chicken nugget the sysop and bureaucrat

Moderate-Rightpedia

thnx for sticking up for our wiki, against Rushwrj13...

hello.

please ignore rush. our group, in fact, has not vandalized his wiki since August. he just wants our site to get shut down. he claims we are hacking his site. the only thing we did was misuse a speedy deletion template, which a VSTF informed him of and even after that, he still didn't accept that, and is stalking us everywhere we go, trying to get us taken off of every platform. we do not plan our attacks or any fowl activities to any platforms, on Miraheze. All members of the wiki have not taken part in a raid since August as well. We do not vandalize here, nor have we intentionally violated any Miraheze or MediaWiki ToU. Thank you for reading, and have a good day.

Unable to contribute aging.miraheze.org

I requested for the adoption of aging.miraheze.org which was abandoned and I was asked to contribute over the week to claim ownership of it. However, the wiki is set with permissions so that only approved users prior can contribute, and since I was not one I cannot add or remove content from it. I hope the permissions issue can be resolved.

requesting wiki issues

Hello, I have a big issue about requesting wikis and them already being taken. My friend and I have been requesting a wiki for a contest with the initials DSC, but it says it has already been taken. After looking at the wiki that already exists, it has been inactive since October with not a SINGLE edit. Since it was 2 months inactive, we tried to adopt the wiki, but again the mods reply with the wiki being private. The message says the wiki and subdomain will be deleted after 6 months of inactivity. It has been NINE months now and nothing has happened. We would like to know if you guys could do us a favor and let us take the subdomain for the wiki, so we can start working on the wiki. We have been trying so hard for months now to try to get this issue resolved, but each time we are denied and it seems like no one is listening to our messages. Hopefully you will allow us to take the wiki subdomain.

Thanks, CamdaNer

Looks like it could possibly be eligible for deletion now according to the logs on the wiki (would want someone else to verify, this is an unusual request). However, out of curiosity, how important is it to use dsc.miraheze.org when you could have picked another subdomain? -- Void Whispers 23:51, 29 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Part 2

Hello again, DSC is a very important subdomain since any other subdomain would not make sense for the contest. The owner has really wanted this subdomain for months and he doesn't want to have to rename the initials of the contest after running it for 1 year now. There are 3 of us editors who are trying to work together to get this subdomain so we can create the wiki, hopefully we can get it soon.

Thanks for your understanding, CamdaNer - 01:04, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

help needed with custom domain

I want to use the custom domain www.museummiddelland.nl for https://museummiddelland.miraheze.org with a certificate from Let's Encrypt, so I only have to point the domain to your server. I added a CNAME on www.museummiddelland.nl. Next I need to fill in this form on Phabricator to request a CSR (or directly a certificate). I tried to login with the username/password that I also use on museummiddelland.miraheze.org but it says that my "Username or password are incorrect". What can I do to proceed? Thanks in advance!

@Fransre: Hi, make sure you select the MediaWiki option below the login instead of trying to log in directly. Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:52, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

New here

Hi, I'm new to Miraheze. I'm mostly into independently-hosted gaming wikis, so I am not looking to make a first wiki. However, I did want to bring up something, which has likely been done before: FANDOM used to be Wikicities but has since been ruined completely. One thing I hope for is that some of the oldest wikis can have new life here. For example, Seattle Wiki. It has been abandoned for years, and I feel wikis like this have untapped potential, as do several other long-since abandoned wikis that were created in the 2000s. It looked like a pretty good vision for a platform of real Wikipedia. Anyway, just wondering if you think it would be a good idea to revitalize some of those old, long-since abandoned wikis on Miraheze. With the CC-BY-SA license, it is allowed, as long as you attribute the original site. There are no communities either. I don't really plan on editing and mostly plan on reading them. There's a lot of subjects that I feel are waiting to have wikis -- something that was there with Wikia long ago but has since been completely ruined. Just wondered what your thoughts are, as you seem to be one of the admins here. Thank you, RMV2003 (talk) 17:20, 8 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@RMV2003: Hi, welcome to Miraheze! If you think these wikis could benefit people I don't see any issues with bringing them over here, it's always great to get new wikis. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:50, 9 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

[Now at Requests for Comment/Require that RfCs undergo a public comment period]

Promised for months! What do you think? Spıke (talk) 12:54 15-Jun-2020

@Spike: Looks like an interesting proposal, though I wouldn't necessarily agree with the 6th point you make which does change a lot. Though we can discuss all of them. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:13, 16 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I'll copy your feedback to the proposal page and announce the proposal. Spıke (talk) 14:44 16-Jun-2020

User:Spike/Recommend that RfCs undergo a public comment period

The vote on the original RfC is nearly evenly divided, but you as well as one voter objected to the mandatory aspects. I've redrafted it as a recommendation, though I'm skeptical of adding a big new procedure that doesn't have to be followed. What do you think? (Not just whether the edits resolve your complaints, but do we need it?) Spıke (talk) 10:44 10-Jul-2020

@Spike: Since it's optional, I'm not sure we even need to have a full RfC to adopt specific wording of the document. We could probably just refer to the current, as yet unclosed, RfC where was some support for rephrasing instructions for beginning an RfC by including a reference that RfCs be drafted and discussed somewhere prior to being launched formally. We're not writing policy here; this is well within editorial discretion of any user to add such phrasing to the information page. I think we should just make the changes, tag it as a "draft," and then discuss on the corresponding talk page, providing a notification link at CN to encourage more discussion on the talk page. These instructions seem too rigid for what's only a strongly encouraged recommendation. Hope that helps? (talk page stalker) Dmehus (talk) 13:27, 10 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Points 5-7 are what I would object to, chiefly, if this were to go to another RfC. I don't think we need to dictate how a draft discussion should be closed. A week seems like a reasonable minimum comment period, but could also be shorter if there were, say, at least five participants and no opposition. It's really just a guide. Similar, to close the draft discussion, any of the participants could simply begin, in a new sub-section, a proposal to close the draft phase and move it to an RfC, pinging the existing participants. Dmehus (talk) 13:33, 10 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Spike: Perhaps instead of it being an procedure, it should be a guideline or a recommendation that we could have somewhere, so that users know what is preferable to do. I don't think we need an obligation, we can trust users to follow the steps in my opinion. Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:19, 11 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks; then I won't advance it further. The existing RfC can probably be closed too; it isn't getting new input and wasn't passed, if you count the negative opinions. Spıke (talk) 17:45 11-Jul-2020
@Spike: I do propose that perhaps, similar to how the English Wikipedia does "essays" (not sure if you're familiar with it), we do add these recommendations somewhere visible. Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:48, 11 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I'd Symbol strong support vote.svg Strong support having something similar to Wikipedia guidance essays, tagged appropriately with a suitable template. These could be created by any experienced users and edited by other users. Similarly, we could link to them on official policy or informational pages, since they would containable suitable caveats that they don't represent official policy.

Hi can you please mass delete all of this pages with "@comment"

Hi can you please mass delete all of this pages with "@comment" i can't do all at once even with "Special:Nuke" in Real Life Villains Wiki Andrewbdfe (talk) 20:20, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Andrewbdfe: We need to first back out your establishment of the separate namespace, as the original Thread: pages weren't actually deleted, and it's causing configuration problems on your wiki. Can you please, by way of a reply to this message or to the message on Stewards' noticeboard, confirm that a system administrator can undo your ManageWiki/namespaces settings change and mass delete all pages prefixed by Thread: and @comment:? Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 20:23, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
