Group: Wiki creator <br>

Reason: I joined miraheze, 7 September 2020. And I have contributed to miraheze wikis (including the miraheze meta) for several months. There are 24 Wiki Creators here, but I think about three ~ five seem to be active. I want to shorten the period between the time of the wiki being requested and the time of the wiki being accepted and created.

# {{Comment}} Ordinarily I would support all [[Meta:Wiki creators|wiki creator]] requests where I get a good sense the candidate would exercise good judgment in interpreting wiki requests and measuring them against [[Content Policy]]; however, given that the requestor's nomination statement is void of any comment that demonstrates their understanding of [[Content Policy]] and also that the requestor recently wanted to convert his private testing wiki into an unauthorized fork of [[mh:test|Public Test Wiki]], ''do'' feel like the candidate would do well to reach out to an existing wiki creator and engage in a mentorship, with situational-based probing questions that shows the candidate can fully interpret wiki requests and measure them against Content Policy, and try again, perhaps as a third party nomination, in another couple months. As well, due to the activity level of a handful of wiki creators, we're meeting or exceeding our de facto service level agreement ("SLA") standards.

*{{oppose|weak}}: Unfortunately, after waiting a few days to consider this, I've chosen to open the voting with an oppose. I've decided to oppose this as in the short time this user has been back from an extended wikibreak where they had no contact with anyone on wiki, despite saying they've 'been helping out around here lately' I've yet to see them successfully help a single user on wiki. I've advised this user on IRC to wait for a week or two and make sure you show your face. When asked whether I'd nominate them days before this request, I again told them to wait a bit, to which they have not done which shows an eagerness similar to that of the current [[Requests for stewardship|steward application of another user]]. This is enough for me to show this user is not ready for Wiki Creator yet although I think they could have the potential in time if they are careful. ~ [[User:RhinosF1|RhinosF1]] - <sub>[[User talk: RhinosF1|(chat)]]</sub> <sup> [[Special:CentralAuth/RhinosF1|· CA]] [[Special:Contributions/RhinosF1|· contribs]] [[Special:UserRights/RhinosF1|· Rights]] </sup> - {{User:RhinosF1/sigcol}}) 19:06, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

::{{U|RhinosF1}} I believe you told me to be active for a few days which I have and it is not like there is much to do other than create wikis except for the occasional comment on the community noticeboard. If you would like me to help out more than I am right now I really need somebody to tell me what to help out with other than to wait for a new post on the noticeboard. --<span style="text-shadow: 4px 4px 20px lightskyblue, -4px -4px 20px HotPink;font-weight:bold;">[[User:Examknow|Examknow]] [[User_talk:Examknow|talk]] ● [[Special:Contributions/Examknow|contribs]] </span> 19:11, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

* {{Support|Weak}} I understand the other comments here but wiki creator is made to help by helping people with creating their wikis. I do not understand why help on Phabricator is important for a wiki request. For me it is important that a wiki creator knows policies and has been around at least a bit which it seems that Examknow has. But I do have one worry and question which is why I voted weak, can you talk about why you are blocked on Wikipedia? --[[User:DeeM28|DeeM28]] ([[User talk:DeeM28|talk]]) 08:31, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

Reason: I am requesting the bot permission because it will be easier to manage my wikis if the bot can block users, protect/delete pages when I'm not on the wiki. If a user vandalizes something, the bot can quickly revert, protect, and then block the account for page vandalism. If there isn't a bot, the user can keep on vandalizing until a sysop comes online and blocks the user. <small><span class="autosigned">— Preceding [[Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Signatures|unsigned]] comment added by [[User:BlackWidowMovie0|BlackWidowMovie0000Editor]] ([[User talk:BlackWidowMovie0|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/BlackWidowMovie0|contribs]]) 16:39, 11 November 2020 UTC</span></small><!-- Template:Unsigned --> <br>

::{{Not done}} per [[Meta:User close policy]]. Though there is no minimum support ratio for [[Meta:Wiki creators|wiki creator]], [[w:WP:CON|consensus]] is [[w:WP:SNOW|clear]] here that the candidate's recent contraventions of [[user accounts policy]] and ''active'' partial block on Meta indicate concerns of trustworthiness. Candidate would be well advised to heed the concerns and put some distance between those contraventions and [[w:WP:IDHT|disruptive behaviour]], and engage with an experienced [[Meta:Wiki creators|wiki creator]] in a mentorship arrangement after a few months time.

Reason: I am requesting this right because I believe I am ready to tackle the responsibilities of the Wiki creator. I have repeatedly read the Content Policy and the Wiki creator guide, and am ready to answer any questions anyone might have for me. I know that there are some who have issues with my trust level, but I promise I will be impartial, and responsible with these permissions. I realize some users will immediately write: <nowiki>{{Oppose|strongest}}</nowiki>, but I strongly urge you to reconsider, as I have grown familiar with the policies and all that is going on.

Group: Wiki creator <br>
Reason: Hey there my username is PapercutsExist and I wan't become sysop, I'm going to prevent all vandalism and spam and I think I could be a good extension to the current team. <br>
+
Reason: I live in Asia and when I visit Meta and look at the Recent Changes feed in the afternoon (usually 1 p.m.), I see several wikis have been requested (in the Farmer log, of course). These wikis usually get created within the next seven hours. I believe that these wiki requests should ideally be reviewed faster. I have read and understood the [[Content Policy]] and [[Meta:Wiki creators guide|Wiki Creators' Guide]]. For these reasons, I believe I will be able to help Miraheze by reviewing requests and creating wikis, and minimising the wiki request response time in the process. <br>

; Questions

# The problem with the Asian wiki requests isn't so much a time of day issue, but rather, an issue with the poor quality of the Google Translate machine translations. Can you describe how you would overcome this with respect to the Mandarin, Cantonese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean wiki requests? [[User:Dmehus|Dmehus]] ([[User talk:Dmehus|talk]]) 21:05, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
 +
#:I unfortunately do not know any of the languages you have mentioned above. If there are wiki requests in these languages, I would leave them for another Wiki Creator of that language. If they do not review the requests in a reasonable amount of time, I would review them myself after using at least two translating software to translate the description.

 +
#:I have explained the points below -
 +
#: A wiki's main purpose cannot be for commercial activity. Wikis cannot be used for showing advertisements to visitors or users or spamming and search engine optimisation. However, wikis are allowed to have fundraiser-type sales and information regarding commercial activities.
 +
#: Contents in wikis must be legal in the United Kingdom. This means various forms of contraband, content inciting violence and underage nudity cannot be present in a wiki. Additionally, wikis must not have any infringing content copyright.
 +
#: A wiki must not have contents spreading unsubstantiated insult, hate or rumours against a person or group of people. All contents on wikis must be fairly balanced, meaningful or substantiated with independent referencing.
 +
#: A wiki must not create problems for other wikis. A wiki must not have contents which tend to draw unwelcome attention to Miraheze, for example, hate speech, routine denial of service attacks, excessively violent content, or places in which illegal activity is discussed can create issues for other wikis like domain blacklisting, downtimes, excessive staff time usage and in search engine optimisation. A wiki must also not be an exact duplicate or fork of another wiki.
 +
#: Miraheze has the permission of redistributing a wiki's contents. By hosting a wiki on Miraheze, the wiki founder grants Miraheze a limited, worldwide license to redistribute content from their wiki to the users they permit to access their site and to Miraheze personnel to ensure that Miraheze can provide service.
 +
#:(I have not explained the points "Miraheze may delete unused and empty wikis" and "Public wikis should develop a content policy" because they have nothing to do with wiki creation.) [[User:R4356th|R4356th]] ([[User talk:R4356th|talk]]) 11:51, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

# {{Neutral}} Despite India's population being very large, there are not many requests from India. My timezone is just 30 minutes ahead of India and I do understand Hindi enough to review a Hindi request (but not the other languages which are spoken there with the exception of Bengali). And I usually do not see you here on Meta unless you have any issue with any wiki you run. So, I do not know whether to support this or not. But considering you have so many global edits, you ''may'' make a good wiki creator. I guess I am neutral for now. [[User:R4356th|R4356th]] ([[User talk:R4356th|talk]]) 11:14, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

# {{Abstain}} While the candidate is certainly active ''outside'' of Meta and no doubt very active in adding interwiki prefixes to the candidate's own Gyannipedia network of Miraheze customer wikis to the candidate's own wikis, the lack of Meta activity ''and'' activity on [[Discord]] precludes me from supporting. That being said, I also don't like opposing candidates I don't know, so {{abstain}} is, for better or for worse, where I have to sit here, as I cannot assess the candidate's understanding of [[Content Policy]]. I would point out, though, that as {{ping|R4356th}} pointed out, he is from your timezone. Together with him, myself, Naleksuh, HeartsDo, FireBarrier101, Zppix, MrJaroslavik, and other active wiki creators, I doubt you would have to wait more than an hour or two for a requested wiki to be approved and thus created [[User:Dmehus|Dmehus]] ([[User talk:Dmehus|talk]]) 14:27, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

#:Dear {{ping|Dmehus}} I completely respect your statement, I knew the [[Content Policy]] completely. Although I have less edits on Meta but I truly believe that trust and believe stands more than edits which I gained since last 2 years, as I am an active user and have the largest number of edits on my wiki Gyaanipedia proves that I am a hard-working person. I know this, that I am a responsible person and I can be an excellent wiki creator so I should get a chance.

#::{{ping|Shaunak Chakraborty}} Thank you for your reply. As I say, I don't have any opposition, but for me, I really can't assess your understanding of [[Content Policy]] based on your lack of ''recent'' Meta ''editing'' activity. Any wiki descriptions for wikis you've requested, similarly, don't give me any idea, particularly as they have been quite short. Not saying you need to have a great deal of Meta editing activity, but just a bit more. I would rather see you engage with an existing [[Meta:Wiki creators|wiki creator]] privately on [[Discord]] or [[IRC]] over the next month or so, and then have that individual renominate you for wiki creator following that successful mentorship.

* Please answer the following wiki request questions in terms of how you'd handle the request (i.e., accept, decline, request more information, or consult with another wiki creator) and why:
 +
*# Request description translates directly from a Chinese variant language, "to expose truth and scandal."
 +
*# A wiki which proposes to compare and contrast extreme political ideologies, including Nazism, Neo-Nazism, fascism, Stalinism, and Communism.
 +
*# Request description reads "Pepelaugh" and sitename reads "Unified Freedom Front of Russia."
 +
*# Request description reads "I want to share information about Grape SMP."
 +
*# Request description reads "Migrating from Fandom over to here."
 +
*# Request description reads "To test MediaWiki" and sitename is the requestor's username.
 +
* In addition, I haven't seen you on [[Discord]] or [[IRC]]. Are you on one (or both) platforms? Though not ''required'', it is ''recommended'', perhaps highly, as wiki creator collaboration is essential, and wiki talk page discussions are sub-optimal for quick messages. --[[User:Dmehus|Dmehus]] ([[User talk:Dmehus|talk]]) 05:22, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

*#:"The primary purpose of your wiki cannot be for commercial activity." ... This is because Miraheze is just a "wiki" service, and spam and commercial use deviate from its intended purpose.
 +
*#:"Miraheze does not host any content that is illegal in the United Kingdom" ... These are against not only Britain but also the public order and morals of us humans. Also, in some countries (including the United Kingdom) this can violate the law.
 +
*#:"Miraheze does not host wikis with the sole purpose to spread unsubstantiated insult, hate or rumours against a person or group of people" ... This creates a situation where if one wiki puts unwelcome content on a wiki farm, other wikis will also be penalized for SEO, domain blacklisting, and system down. In the worst case, Miraheze itself may be seen as evil. for that reason.
 +
*#:"Public wikis should develop a content policy" ... This policy is a '''minimum''' policy, so it means that you must follow the ones mentioned so far.

# {{Support}} {{Done|LGTM}}. You had a minor error on one question, but mainly relating to your reason not being sufficient; however, I did not deduct any points.

User: Shaunak Chakraborty (contributionsCAblocks logrights logglobal rights log)
Group: Wiki creator
Reason: I am here on Miraheze from last 2 years, I'm an interwiki administrator and the owner of the third largest wiki Gyaanipedia on Miraheze. I want to handle especially the Indian wiki requests as the Indian Standard Time differs from another timezone so it will take time for wiki creation. As I told that I am on this platform since more than 2 years so you can trust me.

Additional comments: I have around 4700 global edits on Miraheze and want to serve Miraheze from my heart and get involve here so it's my humble request kindly give me in right. India is having the 2nd largest population in the world so the requests also will be more in number as compare with other countries. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Shaunak Chakraborty (talkcontribs) 07:52, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

Other users feel free to support/oppose/abstain from this RfP but please state your reasoning below.

  1. Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral Despite India's population being very large, there are not many requests from India. My timezone is just 30 minutes ahead of India and I do understand Hindi enough to review a Hindi request (but not the other languages which are spoken there with the exception of Bengali). And I usually do not see you here on Meta unless you have any issue with any wiki you run. So, I do not know whether to support this or not. But considering you have so many global edits, you may make a good wiki creator. I guess I am neutral for now. R4356th (talk) 11:14, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
  2. Symbol neutral vote.svg Abstain While the candidate is certainly active outside of Meta and no doubt very active in adding interwiki prefixes to the candidate's own Gyannipedia network of Miraheze customer wikis to the candidate's own wikis, the lack of Meta activity and activity on Discord precludes me from supporting. That being said, I also don't like opposing candidates I don't know, so Symbol neutral vote.svg Abstain is, for better or for worse, where I have to sit here, as I cannot assess the candidate's understanding of Content Policy. I would point out, though, that as @R4356th: pointed out, he is from your timezone. Together with him, myself, Naleksuh, HeartsDo, FireBarrier101, Zppix, MrJaroslavik, and other active wiki creators, I doubt you would have to wait more than an hour or two for a requested wiki to be approved and thus created Dmehus (talk) 14:27, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
    Dear @Dmehus: I completely respect your statement, I knew the Content Policy completely. Although I have less edits on Meta but I truly believe that trust and believe stands more than edits which I gained since last 2 years, as I am an active user and have the largest number of edits on my wiki Gyaanipedia proves that I am a hard-working person. I know this, that I am a responsible person and I can be an excellent wiki creator so I should get a chance. Shaunak Chakraborty (talk) 15:57, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
    @Shaunak Chakraborty: Thank you for your reply. As I say, I don't have any opposition, but for me, I really can't assess your understanding of Content Policy based on your lack of recent Meta editing activity. Any wiki descriptions for wikis you've requested, similarly, don't give me any idea, particularly as they have been quite short. Not saying you need to have a great deal of Meta editing activity, but just a bit more. I would rather see you engage with an existing wiki creator privately on Discord or IRC over the next month or so, and then have that individual renominate you for wiki creator following that successful mentorship. Dmehus (talk) 16:01, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
  3. Oppose would like to see more global activity, first. Zppix (Meta | Sysadmin | talk to me) 17:45, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
  4. Support Waldo (talk) 18:36, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
  5. Weak oppose You have activity globally and I will not contest that, but, if you want to become wiki creator for me, you should have a minimum of activity here in Meta, I don't ask to be a patroller or something that request time, just to be here a little more or you can request a mentorship with a wiki creator as Dmehus says HeartsDo (Talk || Global || Wiki Creator) 06:27, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
  6. Oppose I would like to see you make more global edits and show us you understand our wiki creating policies first before becoming wiki creator --Cocopuff2018 (talk) 15:47, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Group: Wiki creator
Reason: I am a Japanese vowel speaker. I have translated Meta and TestWiki so far. Currently, there is only one Japanese wiki creators User:シュヴァルツ, and he hasn't been active for more than a month. For that reason, I made this application because I wanted to process the application quickly.

Additional comments: I read Meta:Wiki creators and Meta:Wiki creators guide. --— Preceding unsigned comment added by Waki285 (talkcontribs) 05:02, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Questions
  • Please answer the following wiki request questions in terms of how you'd handle the request (i.e., accept, decline, request more information, or consult with another wiki creator) and why:
    1. Request description translates directly from a Chinese variant language, "to expose truth and scandal."
    2. A wiki which proposes to compare and contrast extreme political ideologies, including Nazism, Neo-Nazism, fascism, Stalinism, and Communism.
    3. Request description reads "Pepelaugh" and sitename reads "Unified Freedom Front of Russia."
    4. Request description reads "I want to share information about Grape SMP."
    5. Request description reads "Migrating from Fandom over to here."
    6. Request description reads "To test MediaWiki" and sitename is the requestor's username.
  • In addition, I haven't seen you on Discord or IRC. Are you on one (or both) platforms? Though not required, it is recommended, perhaps highly, as wiki creator collaboration is essential, and wiki talk page discussions are sub-optimal for quick messages. --Dmehus (talk) 05:22, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

@Dmehus:

    1. Reject as "What truths and scandals do you want to reveal them? And what exactly does it mean to create this wiki? Go back to Special:RequestWikiQueue/(Requests Number) and add content to your request description. Please add. Thank you."
    2. Reject as "Why do you do this? And what if those politicians see these things? Go back to Special:RequestWikiQueue/(Request Number) and add them to the description. Please. Thank you."
    3. Reject as "What does this wiki do? What is this wiki for? Please explain in more detail. Go back to Special:RequestWikiQueue/(Request Number) and add it to the description. Thank you."
    4. Reject as "What does it mean to share the topic of Grape SMP and what content do you want to post? Add it to Special:RequestWikiQueue/(Number). Thank you."
    5. Reject as "Please post the URL of the original Fandom wiki. What is the wiki for? Add it to Special:RequestWikiQueue/(Number). Thank you."
    6. Guide to TestWiki--Waki285 (talk) 09:04, 29 November 2020 (UTC)


  • Please answer my following questions:
    1. In your own words, explain the various points of the Content policy, and why they are important.
    2. If you are not sure about how to handle a wiki request, what should you do? Zppix (Meta | Sysadmin | talk to me) 17:47, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

@Zppix:

    1. "The primary purpose of your wiki cannot be for commercial activity." ... This is because Miraheze is just a "wiki" service, and spam and commercial use deviate from its intended purpose.
      "Miraheze does not host any content that is illegal in the United Kingdom" ... These are against not only Britain but also the public order and morals of us humans. Also, in some countries (including the United Kingdom) this can violate the law.
      "Miraheze does not host wikis with the sole purpose to spread unsubstantiated insult, hate or rumours against a person or group of people" ... This creates a situation where if one wiki puts unwelcome content on a wiki farm, other wikis will also be penalized for SEO, domain blacklisting, and system down. In the worst case, Miraheze itself may be seen as evil. for that reason.
      "Public wikis should develop a content policy" ... This policy is a minimum policy, so it means that you must follow the ones mentioned so far.
      Let's get back to the beginning and read Meta:Wiki creators guide. If you still don't understand, talk to another wiki creator. --Waki285 (talk) 21:51, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
