Criminal wiki

Hi Raidarr, how are you? The criminal wiki is still available if you wanted to edit more? Thanks. Sperosdurell (talk) 22:34, 6 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I believe I left you a comment regarding organization there, and that is what I would likely start with. Bear in mind that two other wikis are my creative focus, although actually focusing on them is a tricky business and the only reason I try to 'muse up' looking elsewhere. So your mileage may vary, and unfortunately it would not be daily. If you have a platform like Discord we could discuss things all at once to come up with a creative direction using whatever you have in mind and what I can manage in offshoots of my ideas. Thank you. -- Raidarr (talk) 10:25, 7 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Shaw's Nightmare

Hi Raidarr, how are you? Shaw's Nightmare Wiki needs some help, so maybe try to edit it more? The levels articles in particular need some love. Thanks. Mickey96 (talk) 19:10, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I haven't edited at all, and that is because I have little interest in the wiki subject. But if you would like advice or administrative work, feel free to specify what you'd like to see and I can give it a look. For content itself - the stuff that requires most familiarity with the material - I'm afraid I am not useful for. --Raidarr (talk) 20:23, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

What do you think of the Home Page and how attractive it is to newcomers? Mickey96 (talk) 09:24, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Mickey96: Stark average for Miraheze, which is essentially no real draw to outsiders. If people are pulled in I think it would be strictly out of interest in the game. There's nothing particularly advanced on it, which isn't necessarily a bad thing; however, it is not in any way designed, and I consider design to be something like this. Of course how you'd have it would be whatever fits the game - frankly, you couldn't do too much and still offer an accurate impression of how the game itself is - but the point is that it's distinct from a default Vector skin, which is stereotypical on Miraheze and doesn't do favors in the question of design. Though there can be design through Vector as well (see the Miraheze front page for a basic example), and what you have going I'd consider fairly simple. Still, that can work, so I'll move to content. It's also worth noting that some front pages on Miraheze actively hurt the wiki's cosmetic appeal, and yours does not do that (imo).
The official site link could be built into the wiki's sidebar for ease of access. The news layout is not too shabby, but perhaps could be done in a box, and the user page notice could be a part of it as well since they're both announcements. Alternatively you could blend one or both (user page + looking for staff) into a MediaWiki:Sitenotice block, which would appear at the very top of the page and also appear on every wiki page until dismissed so you can snare people coming in from any page. Important Articles is not too bad, clean enough to work fine. If you want to get fancy, I'll suggest possibly duplicating an information layout that's something like these (any particular way, don't mind the mediocre color of the examples). Only if it appeals to you of course, but the extra advantage being that you can put the box(es) into relevant pages as well if you use templates. The file links may perhaps carry descriptions or even dedicated pages about their function, troubleshooting and so on, even if they seem relatively self-explanatory at a glance. While people can pretty much get all they need out of the current screenshots listed (and I think having them was a good idea), perhaps a few more can be used. But per some of the examples above I'd try to leverage the horizontal space of the page as well. Much of this may include digging a little into the interface, the CSS, and templating, so only take this as far as you'd be able/want to do/need.
I should also note (slightly off topic), you can actually make a talk page for any username and it will ping that user (although if it pings them globally depends if they opted into that, but that applies with or without a user page). Hope it helps ^ --Raidarr (talk) 10:53, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Not to be a pest...

I do have a lot of stubs. My mind works in weird ways sorry. If your around sometime easypedia is there. Thank you talk to you later. Sperosdurell (talk) 14:12, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I didn't intend to be mean, personally. However, I do worry a little about the long term future. You have an account that appears to be an alt that requested the wiki, which seems odd. Previous projects seem to be left behind with nothing more than the stubs. To contribute to a place, I need to know that it will last, and that its leaders intend more for it than hoping that someone else (ie, me) will be the ones to give it depth. One-line promises cannot do this. If you have more ideas for what the wiki will do, please share. In particular I need to believe that the wiki stands for more than just being an alternative wikipedia with a lot less stuff and no content curation.
I give anything with a clear idea a chance, but there at least should be proof to more in the idea. A passion if you will. Evidence that this is 'the one' that won't be what I have seen before. --Raidarr (talk) 14:25, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I live in a hard environment to do miraheze or any wiki project for that matter. Saying that i will try and edit every day so the wiki doesn't go stale. I hope you can work with me and the Wiki. Sperosdurell (talk) 14:30, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I can respect not having much time. I'm not sure when I will go back to EP, but I'll give it another look and try to see if there is something structural I can offer. --Raidarr (talk) 15:06, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you. Much appreciated. Im sticking with it!!! Sperosdurell (talk) 15:10, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Apologies, i hope you can accept my apology. Sperosdurell (talk) 15:03, 3 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
hi raidarr, apologies for bothering you, news you visited, any chance you coming back? Sperosdurell (talk) 01:10, 11 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Well frankly it depends on a question. Is that wiki going to get more than a week's attention, or will it go the way of every other? 'sticking to it' didn't age well when your talk page and logs indicate you then went on an unsustainable creation spree for seemingly every other topic to exist. --Raidarr (talk) 08:06, 11 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Patroller granted - 2021-08-30

Hi, Raidarr. An administrator on Meta has granted you the patroller user group permission, which gives you the ability to patrol recent changes and new pages of other Miraheze users (both registered and anonymous) who are not either autopatrolled or an administrator. In addition, this group also means that your edits are autopatrolled, so other patrollers or administrators don't have to patrol your edits. You should also be aware that the granting of this user group is at the discretion of Meta administrators, so different administrators will have slightly different criteria for granting. Likewise, just as it is a discretionary appointment, revocation is also at the discretion of Meta administrators and, again, each will have their own criteria for revocation.

In the medium-term, plans are in the works to develop a Meta Patrollers School, likely led by one or two active administrators, that will provide a comprehensive set of guidelines for patrollers and answers to commonly asked questions.

Nevertheless, the following are some of the main guidelines for patrolling. If you follow these guidelines completely, it is unlikely your patroller user group should ever be revoked. In technical terms, even when you find content that requires deletion by an administrator or otherwise requires remediation, undoing, reverting, or rolling back (if you are also a rollbacker, of course), you should always first mark as patrolled any revisions regardless of whether that content is destined to remain extant to the page or even on Meta entirely.

  1. When patrolling talk pages, user talk pages, and noticeboards (in Main and Meta namespaces), you should first check to see whether the user properly signed their posts using four tildes (~~~~). If they have not, you should add {{unsigned}} by substitution ({{subst:Unsigned|username|00:01, 31 August 2020 (UTC)}}), where username is the user's username or IP address and the timestamp is the full timestamp from the diff page. As a best practice, you should also link to the diff in your edit summary, so other administrators and patrollers can easily tie your modification to the original edit being modified. To speed up this process, you can copy the diff-permalink user script from line 5 of this page into either your (a) common.js or (b) global.js page (the latter applying globally on all Miraheze wikis);
  2. When patrolling the noticeboards, ask yourself whether this topic is on the correct noticeboard. If it is not, you should move it to the correct noticeboard, by either undoing the edit or manually removing the topic (if there have been intervening edits), again linking to the original noticeboard of the topic and the new noticeboard where it was moved in your edit summary. On the new noticeboard, you would simply paste in the topic (including the section header), linking to the diff page as in the first step. An example edit summary might be Moved [[Special:Diff/######|this discussion]] from [[Stewards' noticeboard]] to [[Community noticeboard|here]], where ###### represents the numeric revision ID of the originally posted topic;
  3. Also when patrolling the noticeboards and talk pages (including user talk pages), as a best practice, take care to kindly fix any formatting mistakes (such as excess line breaks or incorrect wiki code), per WP:LISTGAP;
  4. If something requires deletion, you can add {{delete}} to the top of the page in question, taking care to follow the instructions on that template page;
  5. If you come across a user who repeatedly makes the same mistakes, send them a guidance note on their user talk page, informing of the steps need to edit and post constructively on Meta; and, finally,
  6. If in doubt whether something requires remediation or not, patrol it, and then ask any administrator via their user talk page or at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard if any further action needs to be taken.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you! --Dmehus (talk) 02:13, 30 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Excellent. I believe I'm good right now, but I'll let you (or at least someone :p) know if something comes up. Thank you. --Raidarr (talk) 08:31, 30 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

A bit of background about the Rebrand

I’m sorry

I’m sorry about that argument, I just got frustrated because you were talking about reverting the rebrand. I asked DMM to redesign the main page of Worst Music & Songs Wiki and that should be done soon. In the meantime, I feel it would be safest to leave things the way they are on Qualitipedia for right now, and improvements can be discussed when improvements are needed.

Wiki creator helpful tips

Hi Raidarr,

First off, I will just start by welcoming you to the wiki creator team. Thank you for volunteering. As you are no doubt aware, Content Policy is our key global policy that guides us in creating wikis for customers. Essentially, every wiki needs to have both a clear purpose, some sort of scope (broad or narrow), and a topical focus. This is the main criterion that helps us to determine whether a wiki will have any potential Content Policy problems.

Second, I wanted to share with you a few tips that I found helpful when I first joined as a wiki creator:

  1. "Request comments" tab. Intuitively, one would think to use this tab when requesting more information, but as Amanda Catherine (and others) pointed out to me shortly after I joined as a wiki creator, there is currently a known issue with this in that the requestor isn't notified via e-mail unless their wiki is either (a) approved or (b) declined. Thus, when requesting more information on a wiki request, you really either (a) use the "decline" tab, referencing your follow-up comments in that text box and telling them to back into [[Special:RequestWikiEdit/#####]] in order to add to, but not replace, their existing description with the needed information or (b) use either the "request comments" or "decline" tab in combination with a message on the requestor's user talk page on Meta. The approach you use is entirely up to you. I personally prefer option A, but either one is fine;
    Note: this was prior to RequestWiki changes made since last fall, so this one no longer applies, but I included it, albeit with strikethrough text for posterity
  2. Private wikis. Private wikis can generally have a shorter description and a less specific purpose, scope, or topic, but they do still need one. If you have some reservations about approving it as, say, a public wiki, due to that vagueness, you can tell them, in your comments prior to approving it, that you're approving it only as a private wiki and remind them to ensure their wiki complies with all aspects of Content Policy;
  3. Eurovision song contest and fictional worldbuilding wikis. These are two types of wikis that have few, if any, problems with them. So, as long as there's a clear sitename, URL, and at least a few words in the description that indicates this as the purpose, it's fine to approve them;
  4. Reception wikis (positive and negative). Many of the Reception wikis tend to give us the most the grief, especially in terms of content that is very negative about users. If it's a Reception wiki that focuses on terrible fast-food restaurants, that's usually less problematic than, say, one that focuses on gamer or YouTube celebrities, mainly because you're not dealing with content about real, living people. Please don't hesitate in asking follow up questions, sometimes multiple times, of these wikis, trying to narrow down whether the wikis will write about real people in some way and, if so, how they will do it. And, at the end of the day, if you are still not comfortable approving, you can write "on hold" for review by another wiki creator in "request comments";
  5. Chinese language mini-world wiki requests. These ones are tricky, but cause us arguably the most grief, particularly when they publish personal information of real people without their consent. Stewards have recently closed a swath of them following a detailed report on stewards' noticeboard, but some of the tricks I've observed them using are odd descriptions like "anti-dog wiki" or to "expose the truth and scandal". Somewhat less common, they will use a completely different, but vague, description, then change their tune when you follow up with them and use some of those key phrases I mentioned in the previous sentence;
  6. Google Translate. Don't hesitate to use Google Translate to review non-English public and private wikis. Notwithstanding the above point, most of these wikis' descriptions translate surprisingly well. As you've probably already noticed, I like to copy and paste the translated to English description into "request comments," so other wiki creators can see it easily. This is optional, but it's a good practice, I think; and,
  7. Don't hesitate to reach out on Discord and ask for a second opinion. If you are still unsure about approving a wiki, or just want a second opinion, don't hesitate to reach out to any wiki creator on Discord. This might be the most important guideline.

There's probably some additional tips I could include, based on more contemporary types of recent wiki requests, notably recent 4chan- and Polandball-type wiki requests, which will possibly require sending back to the requestor for additional clarifying information at least once. Feel free to share suggested additions to these tips, and let me know if you find them useful. :)

Dmehus (talk) 03:51, 1 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for the assorted notices; some bits I knew from observation and others are helpful to fill holes in the gaps. I'd like to have a small discourse on some what-if scenarios I've either seen or that might strain the precedence I know to make me defer the listing.
  1. Theoretically from what I understand the principle is not so much wikis about or including people in a negative light, so much as the fact they are consistently unsourced, tend to be subject to wild accusations and politically partisan 'common knowledge' and are irregularly considered by the local administrators or even contributed to by them. Is there a scenario where a reception wiki say, regarding youtubers (negative or a combined premise) may offer a proper explanation of its techniques and offer a plausible guarantee that it will curate the quality of its pages so as to not result in systemic Content Policy violation? Namely I'm exploring any boundaries you might consider to have precedence where a wiki might offer a description that toes the line or is made by an unknown or even a well established user without the usual reception wiki record of bungling these topics.
  2. Also relevant to above, there is a common trend on the reception wikis as well to now entirely block references to people, communities, and sometimes controversies in page matter. While it is reasonable as local policy to do this (and on most wikis where this is done, they had little business having pages about people anyways), it is often justified as them being automatic violations of the Code of Conduct and otherwise an automatic violation of Miraheze global policy. I'd like to clarify if they're onto something, or if my assumption is correct that they should be more worried about the Content Policy instead, and the rules aren't so much because pages on people and fandoms are automatically restricted, they just require a certain level of care so they don't at minimum potentially create problems for other wikis as well as count negatively in a legal sense that would violate CP and in particular, describing controversy is not a problem as long as it's done in a neutral way and puts some time into offering sources.
  3. URL is a relatively less frequent issue to encounter, but still a relevant portion of the process; I believe I have a good idea of the sorts of URLs that are not desirable for a wiki to have at all and how to judge URL association with wikis, but I wonder if you have additional advice regarding this and where to spot fringe cases as well.
There may be other thoughts as time goes on since this is more of an 'early morning' list; no need to consider this a priority, since if any case does strain my judgement you've already noted the two most critical tools, deferring and second opinion (I'm particularly fond of the latter). In any case, thank you again for both these messages and for approval. --Raidarr (talk) 08:30, 1 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Basic help

Hi Raidarr! I'm recently learning English and I intend to improve. However, it's not good as far as I can understand things. According to your userpage, you are a native English speaker. You are able to help me by listening to this audio:[1]. What she said? It was posted in a group on a media , but I didn't understand this "joke" (only the ending). YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 02:09, 13 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Frankly, the audio sucks to figure out even for a native speaker - it has unnecessary noise and interruption on a few parts. From what I understand, "Okay so, there's good and bad news, the cat I got you is great but has no tail because I gave it up I was really hungry okay?" I may be wrong and the English here is unclear, but presumably the cat had a tail, but apparently the tail needed to go because it was either food or it got her food. As far as jokes go, maybe I'm missing the point too. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ --Raidarr (talk) 22:08, 13 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Changes to the dormancy policy

Why did you go "revive this topic"!? Now there we go again YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 20:48, 6 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

What are you talking about? --Raidarr (talk) 21:27, 6 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
From that here. Just edit someone and come more people and vote, as if it were contagious. It's been a few days since and it was supposed to close this discussion. I can imagine you're little crazy for me to say something, so in the next poll you can quote this comment, ha! YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 21:30, 6 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I don't understand what the point of your commentary is here. The last day I edited before today is December 1st with this edit. On that day there were edits by 6 other unique users with ongoing conversation that was not resolved on that day, along with more discussion in the days before that. Between the 1st and today, TheDungeonMaster replied on December 3rd with several edits. December 6th with the latest edits was started with 10 by El Komodos Drago before I even showed up with my three so far.
Discussions close when Stewards assess that the points have been discussed as far as they will go. One of my edits today was a direct response to a comment made to me. Other conversations are ongoing and there has been no evidence that it should simply be closed now. As much as I think the proposal is probably as far as it can usefully go in its current form, that's not for you or me to assess.
So again, I'm not sure what you're talking about. --Raidarr (talk) 21:43, 6 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Private wikis

Therefore, there is a difference between a public test wiki (for testing resources only) and a private wiki that will be used to test the CSS and the interface of the pages. YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 17:24, 9 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

For any wiki requested on the basis of testing features, resources, CSS and so on, Public Test Wiki is available and overwhelmingly encouraged, with very limited exceptions to be considered and argued case by case. This was the basis of my adjustment to the wording here, on top of your otherwise quite correct edit and good initiative. --Raidarr (talk) 17:35, 9 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

One Question

Hello, Sir! My name is Ravin. I'm new here, can you tell me how can I rank my post on google that I want to create on my wiki? thank you. Ravin23 (talk) 09:25, 18 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hello Ravin23. Ranking a wiki (through something called "SEO") is a complicated topic, one I would addressed later today since it is advanced. However, because you asked this concurrent with a wiki request, I think I have a better idea where to start. It seems to me you're trying to create a page about a person, rather than necessarily starting a wiki with all of its software and technical features (which is what the wiki request process here truly means). For individual pages you would want to go to a specific wiki (one that is likely hosted by Miraheze, I imagine :p) that covers your topic, though we could arrange something via wiki request if you have technical reasons or other reasons why an existing wiki would not work. I ask you to clarify if I'm on the right track, and this will help support you as far as then getting the page the right location and the right attention.
For outside review, the request is here. --Raidarr (talk) 09:46, 18 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I'm not creating wiki about "One person", whole teachers of India; being a science student, I want to note of the biography of minimum 100-200 teachers on this wiki. That's why I'm requesting for... If is it not possible to create, sorry for disturbing :( Ravin23 (talk) 09:56, 18 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Teachers of famous Edtech company like BYJU'S, Unacademy, PW, Vedantu etc. Ravin23 (talk) 09:59, 18 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Ah okay, the biographies of many teachers with, I assume, a standard encyclopedic type of writing. My apologies for the confusion, as that does strike me as a sufficient scope. In that case, please update the request with that information, and I or another creator will be able to return to it later. Please also note that the selected URL was too general; something more specific (unique) to your scope is necessary, as a two letter domain by default is a bit too general. That would likely get the request through the door, and at that point we can consider what to improve for reach. You would definitely benefit from enabling WIkiSEO in the ManageWiki extensions menu immediately upon receiving the wiki or when the content is 'release ready', as a first step to getting traffic. Beyond that what is needed is mostly semantic, with things like having as few stubs as possible and perhaps using some technical tricks so engines like Google have more to work with. --Raidarr (talk) 10:12, 18 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you so much sir 🙏 Ravin23 (talk) 10:18, 18 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

There is an extension called WikiSeo: mw:Extension:WikiSeo, you should expect to spawn a toolbar in ManageWiki/settings and put a Site Verification Key on something, for example: in Google Console Search and analyze data from your wiki.

The Meta Project Sandbox

Hello raidarr, Just wantedt to ask, can we have a sandbox for this Project? Probably in subpage like Raidarr/The Meta Project/Sandbox or somewhere else, so we can use for probably explanations of how things should be or something? I mean, I want to explain something to all Volunteers at The Meta Project and the general public based on what I have arranged on my own. Wdyt? just let me know :) --  Joseph  TB  CT  CA  22:21, 22 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Based on what you're asking, I believe using the discussion page and creating a dedicated section to present your findings/input would be best, and for others to do the same (plus sections can be focused by topic. If it's large enough to entail a page for your ideas as a whole, you could create a dedicated one in your userspace, mark as essay and add it to the links of pages associated with the project. But if you see this and still believe a dedicated sandbox would be best, I wouldn't stop you. --Raidarr (talk) 22:31, 22 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Alright, I never thought of the TP tbh, maybe the TP wouldn't be a bad idea. --  Joseph  TB  CT  CA  22:33, 22 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I like to encourage it :) --Raidarr (talk) 22:35, 22 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

One question

Thanks for unblocking me, but I have one question. You said in the final message that you had shortened the block to one week, yet the block is still indefinite? I am guessing this may have been a mistake. It is good to have this issue finally resolved. Also, I do plan to make an RfC on the QP Meta wiki discussing changes to the blocking policy as a result of this, with similar points to those that I addressed in my RfC here on Miraheze Meta. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:15, 26 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Oh, and can you restore my deleted userpages on Terrible Shows & Episodes Wiki and Rotten Websites Wiki, they were deleted a long time ago for no apparent reason and still have not been restored. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:25, 26 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I suspect Raidarr will restore the user pages. I personally saw no reason for those to be deleted. As to the shortening of the block, I suspect that was an unintentional oversight and should be corrected shortly. Dmehus (talk) 21:27, 26 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:31, 26 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Per dmehus's statement, the QP unblock was blundered and has been fixed. Userpages restored as they were indeed removed for no good reason. --Raidarr (talk) 21:34, 26 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok. I also noticed that you said to discuss other blocks with wiki administration, though many of those wikis do not have active administration and seem to be dead. For those I guess we could wait for the Dormancy Policy to take its course. I didn't intend to contribute to many of those wikis anyway. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:39, 26 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
You may be able to reach members of their administrations elsewhere, ie, I know DarkMatterMan and Fatburn are on a number of wikis in a management position. In the end for some though, they probably will expire for inactivity. --Raidarr (talk) 22:17, 26 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah. Most of those wikis do not seem to be active, a few are semi-active though I don't plan on doing much. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 22:49, 26 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]


I need a private test wiki due to how unstable the bots will be when madeThe zone (talk) 06:30, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I would update the wiki request you made itself with exactly what the bots do, including what makes them so unstable, so WCs can decide if it would be acceptable for PTW, unacceptable for the platform depending on what the danger and instability means, or create the wiki as an acceptable niche use. --Raidarr (talk) 09:05, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
The bots a a extreme risk on this site it would be better off to place them in a private site The zone (talk) 15:45, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
If the risk is as extreme as you reiterate, perhaps it is not a good fit for Miraheze hosting. --Raidarr (talk) 17:02, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]


Thanks for your answer, Raidarr. I can't reply on the community board due to some tech problems. RedFox (talk) 13:40, 3 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yeah, Miraheze is struggling a bit I'm afraid. If you haven't tried source mode give it a go, I know the reply button doesn't work well but editing source should do it. --Raidarr (talk) 14:05, 3 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]


What permissions do you get for adopting a Wiki Rn 001 project wiki making (talk) 21:28, 5 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Adopting a wiki reopens it. You become a normal editor, like anyone else who then visits. What you can do from there is start a local election to gain more advanced rights. --Raidarr (talk) 22:00, 5 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Oh maybe I'll just request oneRn 001 project wiki making (talk) 22:04, 5 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

so what do you think for my satire wiki plan be honest Octahedron foundation (talk) 19:29, 20 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I think you have been requesting too many wikis, been demonstrating rather strange behavior as a whole and should take particular stock of what is posted on your talk page regarding the use of multiple accounts and other behavior advisories before committing to a project or direction. --Raidarr (talk) 20:02, 20 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]


Can I be a sysop on my wiki? Octahedron foundation (talk) 21:13, 20 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry, no. --Raidarr (talk) 22:36, 20 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]


So on my Wiki I was editing a couple groups and then I deleted the bureaucrat group basically locking me out of my Wiki please help restore the default permissions Octahedron foundation (talk) 23:13, 20 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hi! On your user page you mention that you are not good in some areas (or prefer to delay), and you mention "Proper translation". Which "translation" are you referring to? Translate the pages or just tag using tags? --YellowFrogger (talk) () 02:00, 27 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Tags, administrative things surrounding translation, and of course the act of properly translating itself. --Raidarr (talk) 13:11, 27 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]


I can't find or there isn't a subpage you mentioned in a conversation with me on Discord. Where can I find such a way in which I can reply to messages? --YellowFrogger (talk) () 16:45, 29 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Log summary!

Hi Raidarr. Will you please avoid the log summaries like this. It feeds the LTAs and they should be denied. Moreover, it is annoying and it looks like you are trying to communicate with them. Thanks and best of luck with your RfS :) --Magogre (talk) 03:06, 11 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, Raidarr. This is weird. It's like feeding trolls. When you do, say "long-term abuse" and don't even care. They want attention and it amuses them. --YellowFrogger (talk) () 03:07, 11 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Typically I do just that. In this case I felt inclined to indicate my amusement. I am not against communicating with them especially if they seek to communicate with me, though obviously the preference there is constructive communication for a positive result. Thank you for your input in any case. --Raidarr (talk) 03:08, 11 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Log summaries

You have already been asked before to be more careful with log summaries. Now there are even more problems such as Special:Redirect/logid/700920. I will ask once again to please stop using log summaries like this, especially mere hours after getting the Steward bit as this may worry users as to what the future will be like.
