Protected edit-request on July 8 2019

Template:Edit-protected It is requested that a change to the Dormancy Policy be made.

On the section Dormancy Policy#Exceptions from the Dormancy Policy, please change

Similar to the exemptions above, there are several wikis that are considered exceptions to this policy. The Dormancy Policy never has and never will apply to Meta Wiki (this central project wiki), loginwiki (which is required for technical reasons), commonswikiwiki (central image repository), cvtwiki, conductwiki, or staff wiki (which are all used for internal coordination).

Entered bad address for phabricator registration

Hi, I entered a misspelled email address when I was registering for phabricator. It keeps telling me that the email has been sent and won’t let me correct it. The correct address is in my miraheze account settings. Can you reset it? Thanks, Eddie

Hi, i've deleted the account so you can recreate it with the correct email. Paladox (talk) 20:45, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

How can I get translator permissions?

I've tried to translate main page to Polish but extension says I don't have required permissions. "Get permission" link redirects me to deleted page (Meta:Translator). What should I do then?

Translator rights

I have noticed that the German version still needs some tweaks to it. I'd be glad to help with that, but I've never been autoconfirmed since I never made edits to the Meta Wiki. Pulsaris talk 08:55, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

what’s going on in the mobile version

Excuse me. I went to Meta today and I have found out I can’t read pages on Mobile. If I’m on a page and reading it in mobile view, no test appears on the page. Somebody, please. This needs some serious EXPLAINING. •• Fair0002 • Bureaucrat and Administrator of Crazybloxian Empire Wiki 06:30, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

You're right. --Dark Dragoon (talk) 07:40, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
A task has been opened and we are looking into why this is happening. Thank you for pointing it out. Reception123 (talk) (C) 09:03, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
@Fair0002: @Dark Dragoon: I have identified the issue as coming from the Tweeki skin. The skin has now been temporarily disabled on Meta while we sort out the issue, so all pages now work on mobile. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:50, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
@Reception123: Yey! Anyways, ████ you, Tweeki. You messed up the wiki. Anyways, learn alesson.

Inappropriate wiki.


It has been brought to my attention that a section of your wiki site ( you've hosted has been used to defame, and spread lies about myself. It was referring to me as a "pedophile", which is a false, and unsubstantiated accusation. It also solicits mine and other people's personal information with the intent to harass them. The main wiki page in reference is overall been used to organize, and document targeted harassment by individuals.

This page contains a youtube video that contains my own personal phone number multiple times:

The main individual in question who has been making the offending edits about myself has a profile that can be found here:

I would like to ask for assistance in preventing my personal information to be released as well as removing content making serious false allegations. I feel that the main wiki where this is taking place is not doing anything productive or informative, and by nature is entirely nefarious.

Thank you, — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheGiantOne (talkcontribs)

I've deleted anywhere I could find that hinted at the person in question being a pedophile, as I'm pretty sure that constitutes libel. At least until the author of the post attempts to dispute it or anything. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 04:26, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Problem with Upload file and can not log in to Phabricator?


I am a new user and have just started a site! But can not upload files? And are not allowed to log in to Phabricator? I wonder if there can be something that I have missed here? Best regards from /VisbyStar

Hi, What errors are you seeing (for both file uploads and Phabricator). ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     On wikibreak) 20:15, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
For upload file it is: Action failed

Jump to navigationJump to search Could not open lock file for "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/7/78/20190906_171010.jpg". Make sure your upload directory is configured correctly and your web server has permission to write to that directory. See$wgUploadDirectory for more information.

and for Phabricator it is: Du har inte behörighet att utföra den åtgärd du begärt. (in Swedish) It says I am not allowed to do this request.
We're looking into the file upload issue and regarding Phabricator, Are you signing up via the 'Mediawiki account' option. (You can only create an account if you use that to link your Miraheze account). ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     On wikibreak) 20:25, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Hi, file uploads should work now! It appears your wiki's folder was missing on our file storage servers hence why there was a failure. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Paladox (talk) 20:43, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Great! Thank you very much! I will try to solve the Phabricator "problem" later. I think my account is not connected yet. VisbyStar (talk) 20:50, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Would you be able to try phabricator again please? We think we've discovered the problem and fixed it! ( Paladox (talk) 21:34, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
