Continued Issues With Inappropriate Wiki

Thank you for removing the bulk of the libelous content, but unfortunately I was made aware of similar content on the same wiki ( making allegations that are untrue: on the bottom paragraph it refers to myself as a "pedophile" an extremely false statement. This is abusive behavior, and defamation toward myself made by this wiki, which seems to be premised on articles meant to insult and harass individuals they've targeted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheGiant1 (talkcontribs)


This is an obvious bad-faith edit (supposedly complete personal information does not match username; use of Cyrillic characters) made by a person or 'bot trying to determine whether this wiki is actively maintained. Spıke (talk)00:21 28-Mar-2020

A Problem on Atrocious YouTubers Wiki

Kesner blocked me for “BEinG a WhiTEKniGhT oF a cERtaiN ToXic uSEr”. Not that I ACTUALLY did anything. Can you please undo my block, and possibly punish Kesner instead?

NutScript Adoption Correction

To any admins reading this. The NutScript Adoption request by Otunga needs to be voided / overlooked. Otunga has been permanently banned from the NutScript Community due to Proven situations he was involved in with Fraudulent and scamming behaviors. The creator of NutScript is Chessnut and his successor Black RebelTea. This user "Otunga" is merely trying to adopt the wiki to delete it, if not flood it with material nothing related to the script. He does not develop for the Script, nor have any useful attributes to it. He is merely a mapper on a game called Garry's Mod; giving him the wiki will just destroy what we have had. The owner and lead developers will be on tomorrow to try and overthrow it / claim it also so this does not happen.

Dragon Quest Wiki activity

I have a little problem: On the Dragon Quest Wiki [1], which I have created, there is sometimes the message that the wiki would be inactive and that it will be closed soon, BUT there is quite a lot activity [2]! Why is this message there?! Can somebody help me please?

Bonnedav rollback request


I wish to request the rollback right on meta so that I may better assist in combating spam and vandalism to keep meta a clean place for the miraheze community to come together. I understand that is right is only for meta and does not affect any other wikis. I agree to only rollback edits that clearly violate policy and leave anything else up to the admins, bureaucrats, and stewards.

Thank you for considering.

I do not see much anti-vandalism work on meta. How can you demonstrate previous counter vandalism experience? ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     On wikibreak) 06:44, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
I don't have a lot of experience but I have read the policies and hope to learn and gain more experience. However I did assist in reverting an attack on where a user was adding a political message to the top of every page. Thank you. Bonnedav (talk) 17:34, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
@RhinosF1 Im sorry if this is inappropriate but it has been 9 days since my reply and I feel it prudent to bump both this and the page deletion request below. I understand I have limited experience but I have been monitoring the recent changes and marking good edits as patrolled. I have not encountered any vandalism yet but when I do I will undo it but I would like to have the rollback right so I may do so more quickly. However I will understand if you decide not to grant my request at this time. Thank you. Bonnedav (talk) 17:00, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
Sorry I missed this, no objection then from me but I need to go and get food then eat it first!! Will look later. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     On wikibreak) 17:05, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
Oh that's quite alright, thank you and enjoy your lunch. (I don't know what time it is where you are but its around lunch time for me.) I think I will probably go eat something as well. Bonnedav (talk) 17:11, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Could someone please delete this? I created it on the wrong wiki (I was intending to create it on Miraheze Template Wiki). Pppery (talk) 19:43, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

There seems to be a glitch

Every time I try to upload an image, I get the "500 Internal Server Error" screen.

Trevor807 (talk) 22:03, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

What Wiki? example? Hispano76 (talk) 22:05, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

It seems I can't upload images on any wiki. I also can't do edits, apparently.

Trevor807 (talk) 22:08, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi, what wiki? Paladox (talk) 22:27, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

There's DifferentHistory Wiki and most of the reception wikis. The only wiki I can edit on is Atrocious YouTubers Wiki.

Trevor807 (talk) 22:31, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

I also cannot upload images. Wiki: Esoteric Music Software Wiki

Dotexe (talk) 22:36, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

@Paladox: It seems to happen in some wikis, when you preview the edit or see the changes made in the edit (like in UcroniasWiki). But the funny thing is, that doesn't happen in any of my other wikis or pages. Any errors from an extension or config? Hispano76 (talk) 23:17, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
I don't see any errors. Only change I made was the wiki sitename because it had a minor mistake. Should I change it back? I also realized I'm able to do edits unlike the other poster... maybe a different problem? Dotexe (talk) 23:42, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Can you do a screenshot showing the error please? Paladox (talk) 23:22, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Here is the upload page before hitting upload. Here is the error page after hitting upload. Here is the image I was trying to upload. Dotexe (talk) 23:34, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
How big is the file? Paladox (talk) 00:09, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
Nvm, i've managed to upload the image you linked to without error.
I was able to upload by removing the summary. Dotexe (talk) 01:01, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

I can upload to Paladox (talk) 23:23, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

wiki created template

Hello, I just tried to use the "wiki created" template but noticed that the built-in signature does not work and just shows 4 '~'s instead of an actual signature. Could someone please fix this? The page is protected. Thank you. Bonnedav (talk) 07:33, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

The template is no longer used, Echo notifications are done for that. Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:43, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
Ah ok, thank you. Bonnedav (talk) 02:12, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
Is there some reason an admin doesn't delete it and it's subtemplates, then? Pppery (talk) 02:28, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
They are transcluded on a lot of pages. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     On wikibreak) 06:22, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
