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?

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)

@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 - (     offline) 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 - (     offline) 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)


They are copying a bunch of unnecessary templates from Wikipedia, even with no attributions. Therefore please block this user. - P1av0rSe01Complaint? 10:59, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Concur; this user's edits seem unwise but not necessarily malicious. In addition to failure to attribute the material to Wikipedia editors, which you mentioned to the user on his talk page, the user might not understand that Meta is not for individual wiki-building but for the designated purposes, and has all the templates it needs unless people decide to add new features to it.

Parser Function don't work

Hi, i have a wiki, where parser functions like #sub: and #explode: are working perfectly fine. Recently I created a second wiki where these functions don't work.

Page move "throttled"

User Naleksuh stated that he had tried to move a page in his userspace but got the message, "Action throttled." Both he and the page have age of at least three weeks. Does he need additional permissions to use the Move button successfully? (If so, the Move button ought not to be visible to him.) Is there a coding error in an Abuse Filter? Spıke (talk)03:38 18-Jan-2020

@Spike: @Naleksuh: That is strange, did the message say anything else? Did you try again after? I've checked the abuse log and there are no logs for Naleksuh, so it does not seem to be from there. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:28, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
I think there's a default speed limit within the MW core system for any actions by users that are not admins nor bots. Maybe he might have been acting too fast (ex. 10+ moves per minute). If this is the case, it can be solved by waiting for a while.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 07:39, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
I only attempted one move, and got this message for several hours. I tried uploading a screenshot of the error, but I got the message "This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed.
