Wiki Request

What was the issue with the request? Special:RequestWikiQueue/14248 ( — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alpha (talkcontribs) 19:29, 16 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Alpha: Your wiki doesn't have a clear purpose or topic. What's your wiki about? How will it write its content? Please go back into Special:RequestWikiEdit/14248 and add to, but do not replace, your existing description with this information. Hope this helps.

We are having some sort of issue with a troll on Horrible Vyonders Wiki pretending to be someone else.

If you actually look at the page about Elias D, the user pretending to be him is going around sending death threats and harassing them. Please do something to stop them: DarkMatterMan4500 {talk} 23:26, 16 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Small change to the RequestWiki UI


Just letting you know that there's been a small change to the RequestWiki UI this morning and you can check the new steps to take here.

Mainly wanted to note that you can leave the reason field blank if you are approving a request, as it will automatically link to the request.

Also would like to note that declining is now also done via the "Handle request" section rather than a separate one.

Welcome to Miraheze

Hello, Reception123, and welcome to Miraheze! Miraheze is a free, non-for-profit wiki hosting service. If you would like to start a wiki please fill in this form or, if you'd like to contribute to an existing wiki, please see a few wikis here or the full list of wikis here. Note that (private) wikis aren't accessible unless you are given access, and closed wikis cannot be edited.

For more information, please see our FAQ. If you have any additional questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to contact us.

You are encouraged to create your user page, whether here on Meta (visible only when on Meta), or your global user page that visible on any Miraheze wiki where a user does not have a local user page and provided that the wiki has the GlobalUserPage extension enabled and, additionally, where the wiki is not using the SocialProfile extension. Should you decide to create your global user page on Loginwiki and wish for it to replace your Meta user page, simply add the {{delete}} template to the top of your Meta user page by copying and pasting this code ({{Delete|1=Author requests deletion, or author blanked.}}), and an administrator should delete it promptly (usually within 24 hours).

If you have any questions, after first reviewing FAQ and the help center, please don't hesitate to ask at the community noticeboard, but please be sure to end all new topics or replies you make on talk pages, user talk pages (like this one), and noticeboards with four tildes (~~~~) to include both (a) a username and (b) a properly formatted timestamp for our talk page archiving bot.

@Dmehus: As one of the first users to register on Meta in August 2015 and with more than 8000 global edits, I thank you very much for this slightly late welcome note :P Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:32, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Reception123: (edit conflict) This was obviously just a test, but I thought it would be easier to test my revamped {{welcome}} template on your user talk page, in order to get any feedback you might have, or to obtain your "thumbs up/LGTM" stamp of approval (as opposed to testing it in Meta:Sandbox). I revamped it in a major way, to include a section header, add much-needed substitution of magic words, add information on global user pages, add an automatic signature, and add documentation to the template. What do you think? Dmehus (talk) 17:33, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus: I agree, it's better than the previous one. Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:38, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Reception123: Okay, great, thanks! :) Dmehus (talk) 18:36, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Unanswered requests

Sorry to bother you but it's been a few days since I posted these requests and I still have no answer.--Wedhro (talk) 15:04, 15 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Wedhro: While user merges can be done, they generally have to be done locally and manually by a steward as global user merges aren't scalable. So, what would be the reason for needing to merge? If the user wishes to transfer his or her credentials, they can simply either ask local bureaucrats to remove the rights on the old accounts and add rights on the new account. Where the local bureaucrats are inactive after a considerable period of time, a steward can be dispatched to the local wiki to assess the local permissions change request in the absent bureaucrats' stead.
