You're currently logged out. If you're having problems with your wiki, you need to login.

Looking to make a report regarding a specific user? In addition to being required to provide a thorough and complete report, you should also know that reports by anonymous or logged out users are not taken very seriously for a couple reasons, namely that:
1. We don't know who is making the report; and,
2. Western liberal democracies enshrine in a citizen's fundamental, constitutionally-enshrined legal rights the right to know and face one's accuser, and Miraheze is no different.

Accordingly, please kindly login. If you are unable to login, please e-mail sre(at) with your username and the specific error message you are receiving, and they will assist you, or direct you to other global functionaries where appropriate.

Issue with an anon on Trashy Celebrities Wiki

Anonymous user has constantly been adding content on the Mathieu Brunet (2016-Present) page on Trashy Celebrities Wiki stating that Brunet is "stupid," should die, and should get arrested for his actions (even though he hasn't done anything illegal). I have already told him that calling him "stupid" is potentially cyberbullying, and I don't really need to explain what's wrong with the other two. He has constantly been re-adding it despite my attempts to get him to stop it. Could a steward or global sysop please block him from the wiki temporarily? I have to ask here because all of the admins are inactive. Thanks, FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 21:34, 19 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

In light of the recent discussion started by Raidarr on that wiki about closure and upon the general agreement of Stewards, I have closed the wiki which technically resolves this matter. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:51, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: Why did you do that? The discussion wasn't finished, and also, all of the pages that violated the Content Policy were a candidate for deletion. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 20:45, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The discussion was originally just meant to last a week or so and technically wasn't even a discussion but instead a forewarning of what was to happen. Because the wiki will always have negative topics as it's main focus, it would be hard to prevent any future pages from containing injurious claims in the future. As such, after conferring with 2 other Stewards, I actioned this topic and closed the wiki or else another Steward would have done the same this very week. Agent Isai Talk to me! 21:40, 20 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: "It would be hard to prevent any future pages from containing injurious claims in the future." How? If new administrators were promoted, that issue would be fixed. Also, regardless, you could say the exact same about Real Life Villains Wiki, and yet it's allowed to exist. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 00:59, 21 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: Hello? FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 21:22, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It's not really worth it to continue the conversation considering the wiki closed. ZeusDeeGoose (talk) 15:06, 4 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@ZeusDeeGoose: Yes, but it shouldn't be deleted. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 20:33, 4 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It's a bit too late for that, as it has been deleted already. ZeusDeeGoose (talk) 01:25, 5 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@ZeusDeeGoose: Yes, but it can still be restored. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 09:34, 5 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Local election proccess iniated to recover bureaucrat rights on sucessor account

Hi, as most people are already aware I'm the successor account to the founder of the . So I created the page for the local election process here: . Since there won't be any opposition I hope I can get the rights back ASAP. Thanks in advance! Balofo2 (talk) 00:11, 21 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Pictogram voting comment.svg non-steward observation As previously noted by the SRE team members, we cannot verify that you are the successor account of Balofo, so it is already advised for you to check out the local election page for getting your rights back. Briefly, the process should take at least 4-7 days (you seemed to place this request after 10 minutes of you election), and the request should usually be placed in Talk:Main Page (your linked election page is in the mainspace, which doesn't serve the purpose to inform the users), in your case when there are no project pages for the community to discuss any issues. Please follow the procedures stated, and re-note the stewards here when the election has passed for 4-7 days, and you should been granted admin and bureaucrat rights at that time by steward discretion. Cheers, Matttest (talk | contribs) 01:43, 22 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Matttest Done. Balofo2 (talk) 00:32, 23 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Balofo2:Don't listen to Matttest, stewards can link the two accounts and have helped people who have got locked out of their accounts in the past. Naleksuh (talk) 04:08, 23 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Naleksuh: Please check out the previous discussion about this at here. Cheers, Matttest (talk | contribs) 06:25, 23 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It has been more than a week since a started the election, does it need more time? Balofo2 (talk) 05:08, 4 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Pictogram voting comment.svg non-steward follow-up Sorry for the delayed response. Don’t mind me making assumptions, but I think stewards have forgotten this request as it have been quite some time ago and is put at the very top of this noticeboard. Pinging Agent Isai (a current very active steward) for assistance on this local election. -Cheers, Matttest (talk | contribs) 08:45, 5 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Can you please give me rights

Basically, i managed to reopen and I was an admin until I forgot my user and pass. Can you please give me (@Stingycus) back the rights? Thanks Stingycus (talk) 06:25, 24 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

We can't give out rights liberally as we can't verify if you're really the old bureaucrat. If we did, we'd have a lot of wiki takeovers. Please read Local elections for how to make a local election to regain those rights on your new account. Thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 15:43, 24 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

CheckUser request for two persistent sockpuppeteers

Over the past few weeks, the CLG Wiki has seen multiple sockpuppet accounts from two sockpuppeteers. Although one of them had been previous requested for this tool, they have made more evasions recently.

PBSArchive socks

If you take a look at their edits, you will see they mostly consist of page creations with poor grammar and the same formatting, such as this one and another article.

Ngozikal socks

If you analyze these accounts clearly, you will see that their real names listed on their profiles read "Jordan K Ene" and one of these accounts tried adding a "logo" that the original account, Ngozikal7994646464643344387654582, added images to, including recreating this particular pageCamenati (talk) 16:57, 25 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Camenati: I agree that it is suspicious, but hopefully the Stewards like Raidarr, Reception123 or Agent takes a good look at them soon. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 17:10, 25 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hi there, thank you for your report! I have checked and indeed, all the accounts linked are related. I have Yes check.svg locked the following accounts as confirmed sockpuppets of PBSArchive:
Extended content
Raphy Movie Fan 2001
Teri Fikowski
ATV Studios
I have Yes check.svg locked the following for Ngozikal:
Extended content
Nina Parker Fan
Heidi Klum Fan
Giuliana Fan
Amanda Fan
I have also Yes check.svg locally blocked their IP ranges too so they shouldn't be able to create more accounts. If they do, please alert us here. Thanks! Agent Isai Talk to me! 06:40, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hello, two weeks later, another PBSArchive sock was created today, specifically PBSNorthWest, possibly under a different IP address. Camenati (talk) 16:16, 12 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Issue with Tedious Theme Parks & Attractions Wiki

Tedious Theme Parks & Attractions Wiki is a wiki I founded as a sister wiki to Awesome Theme Parks and Attractions Wiki, until I then found out one already existed. I attempted to close it multiple times, however, for some reason, I have several times now received emails saying that it has been closed, even though I thought I closed it already. Here's the ManageWiki log for reference. Does anyone know how to fix this? FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 20:28, 25 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Those emails were potentially queued up and sent even though the wiki was correctly closed. If you wish however, I can delete the wiki to 'fully' close it. Agent Isai Talk to me! 05:58, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Well, since I've been trying to close it for ten months and therefore it should have been deleted four months ago, yes, I would appreciate it if you would just delete it. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 21:01, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yes check.svg Done, as requested. Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:27, 31 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Mass rollback of spammer

Hello, a probable spambot with username Sherexxx inserted a porn image with a QR link in thousands of pages on Nonciclopedia wiki. We manually rollbacked a few thousands of those but they're just too much, would it be possible to rollback all its edits at once?

Also, we have an abuse filter that is supposed to stop flood edits from new users, but it didn't catch this one. Could you give it a look?

Thanks. Wedhro (talk) 04:07, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

If you wish, I can run a script on my bot that mass rolls back edits made by a certain user. I'd temporarily grant my bot the bot flag locally and it'd begin rolling back edits, if that's acceptable to you. Agent Isai Talk to me! 05:57, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
That would work, thanks. Wedhro (talk) 08:04, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
My bot has undone all vandal edits, let me know if anything else is needed. Agent Isai Talk to me! 20:51, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Stale local election

I opened up a local election here. It's been 6 days and no votes so far. Can't really push the wiki foward without some rights. Any guides? MacacoKouhai (talk) 21:26, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

In the most technical of senses, this election does not meet our local election requirements as you did not publish a notice of the election taking place on either the main page or as a sitenotice. However, because you were the one who requested the wiki be reopened, are basically the only contributor and because the wiki, before your contributions, was quite literally empty, I have called the election in your favor by means of acclamation and have Yes check.svg promoted you to local bureaucrat and administrator. Congratulations and happy editing! Agent Isai Talk to me! 23:17, 26 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Dormancy policy exemption request

Hello! I would like to request an exemption to the dormancy policy for Fool's Gold Docs ( We have just finished up documenting everything in the game, and it has begun to be used by our community while playing the game. FGdev (talk) 00:50, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@FGdev: Could you please mention why you are requesting the exemption? The most common reason is because a wiki has a sufficient number of articles but they're mostly going to be read and not frequently edited. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:43, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, that's precisely it. We have approximately 400-450 articles, and they're all completed, so there does not need to be much more editing left, if any. However, we would still like the wiki to stay up past the dormancy period, so that those playing the game can still read the articles. I hope that clears it up. FGdev (talk) 16:03, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the extra information. I've exempted your wiki from the DP as requested. Reception123 (talk) (C) 11:07, 29 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you so much! FGdev (talk) 15:33, 29 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

A user that may have been unrightfully locked

There is a now-locked user known as I have no idea, who is marked as a sockpuppet of I have no idea 2.0. However, there are many flaws with this lock:

  1. For one thing, I have no idea is the master account, not I have no idea 2.0, as I have no idea was created first.
  2. After looking at their contributions page on all wikis to which they have been shown to contribute on their CentralAuth (not checking the others where they may have commented or done something else that only appears in logs because there's a lot and it isn't worth my time, also I haven't checked GMW because I currently can't access it), they have not edited on a single wiki with I have no idea since they created I have no idea 2.0, with the exception of Miraheze Meta (where they commented for verification). Therefore, this is not really disruptive sockpuppetry.
  3. Despite all of this, it is stated that the use of the two accounts has somehow violated sockpuppetry rules. There is no clear proof of other abuse, other than their CentralAuth showing that they were blocked by DarkMatterMan4500 from the game reception wikis for allegedly using an unnamed "fake Santa Claus account" and other unnamed accounts, however there is no clear proof of this, therefore this is questionable.

If there is something I'm missing then please tell me, but otherwise, I would disagree that these actions are worthy of a global lock. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 08:44, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@FatBurn0000: Did you forget about this confirmation that they dropped a while ago? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 09:19, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@DarkMatterMan4500: No. I saw that, and I believe it does not show nor prove any disruptive behaviour. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 10:27, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@FatBurn0000: You seemed to have forgotten something here. That user was confirmed to have abused multiple accounts back in December 2020. How many times do I have to repeat myself here? (It's bad enough when I see somebody oblivious to the fact that I have no idea was related to I have no idea 2.0, considering the fact that Doug himself has investigated and determined I have no idea 2.0 / I have no idea was the main master, behind such accounts like Santa Claus, among such troll accounts.) DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 10:39, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@DarkMatterMan4500: Fair enough with the Santa Claus thing, though it wasn't clear what account you were talking about in the block summaries on the GRWs. As for the I have no idea situation, I am not saying they are not the same account, just that the sockpuppetry was not necessarily disruptive. Also, the accounts' global user pages should be changed to be accurate, too. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 11:12, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@FatBurn0000: Thank you for your understanding. I know what I said above was just purely out of frustration, but keep in mind that I have no idea has outright admitted to operating the I have no idea 2.0 account prior to being globally locked. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 11:19, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Likely this lock was confirmed with technical evidence that has long expired and is not able to be retrieved. Locks for sockpuppetry overwhelmingly have technical confirmation which can override even vague behavioral indications that people can see looking back long after the fact. There are likely other locks or contexts in this case which are not immediately obvious. Unless the original operator of the account appeals or overwhelming third party evidence is provided, this lock will not be overridden. --Raidarr (talk) 12:05, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I concur with Raidarr's assessment here, FatBurn0000. That being said, assuming the operator of said accounts has not already created other accounts that were involved in similar behaviours, given the passage of time, if the operator were to e-mail Stewards at stewards(at), owning up to the vandalism and sockpuppetry, acknowledging any more contemporary accounts they created in good-faith, and promised not to repeat the behaviour, I have no doubt Stewards would be very accepting of that and allow the user to either (a) continue using their more contemporary account(s), (b) create a new account, or (c) request one of the prior accounts be unlocked, all in compliance with user accounts policy. Dmehus (talk) 18:03, 31 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Raidarr: Regardless, the statements on the user pages should be fixed, as the I have no idea should be marked as a former account. Wikipedia has a template called former account, maybe Miraheze could create something like that. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 23:28, 28 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@FatBurn0000: It doesn't really matter at this point. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 18:19, 29 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@DarkMatterMan4500: I beg to differ; it should be changed to prevent confusion. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 02:59, 31 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@FatBurn0000: Let's just agree to disagree, even if what you said is correct. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 15:36, 31 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

CheckUser request for 2 suspected RickERB23 sockpuppets

I am making this request because I have been observing some very eerily familiar behavior from both parties that are identical to the master: These 2 accounts have been very hostile towards other editors on both the horriblemusicwiki and the terribletvshowswiki. For example, this hostile edit summary (or otherwise inappropriate comment) from LambChop90 is identical to RickERB23's comments in terms of hostility.

Similar hostile behavior from all parties: LambChop90 vs. RickERB23. LambChop90 vs. RickERB23.

Similar behavior when engaging in edit-warring: Schoolboy99 vs. LambChop90 vs. RickERB23

As you can see, there's a lot of behavioral similarities between these 2 accounts and the master, that is, if we were to go further in depth of how they are quacking similarly to one another. Hope this gets done as soon as possible. Thank you. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 17:48, 29 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

For an example pertaining to Schoolboy99 and terribletvshowswiki, there is edit summaries like this, where he compared me to China just for removing political stuff. Rick demonstrated similar behavior to removal of problematic material through a previous sock, RadarYo47, in this topic where he demonstrated the same irrationally uncivil behavior as Rick. Marxo Grouch (talk) 01:50, 31 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you for the report. I have Yes check.svg locked the mentioned accounts plus a newly registered one that was also him. I have also Yes check.svg globally blocked two IP ranges abused by him across multiple wikis which should keep him away for a while. Let me know if he returns, thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:08, 31 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: Thank you very much. Also, was DemonCobra22 a  confirmed sockpuppet of his? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 02:53, 31 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: A new account, RounderFortheWin, just showed up and is continuing this stupid debacle, as shown in this edit-summary, consistent with LambChop90's hostile edit-summaries. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 20:06, 3 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Moderators taking a lot to approve my request

Hi there, my wiki request has been declined because the reason is in English and my wiki is in Spanish (yeah, Spanish is my main language) and i updated my request, and they're taking over 24 hours to review my request, they usually take around 5-7 hours or so FranciscoLol2009 (talk) 19:28, 30 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Wiki creation times vary a lot. Some days, requests get approved within a minute, others with a few hours. It depends on how many wiki creators are around to service requests. Anyhow, your request was approved by me. Thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:25, 31 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Not logged in people can't search pages on my wiki

Hey so, my friend (who doesn't have a Miraheze account) can't search pages on my wiki, i logged out and it also happend to me, can you make something so people who aren't logged in can search pages FranciscoLol2009 (talk) 18:33, 31 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Nevermind, it was because my wiki was private FranciscoLol2009 (talk) 18:37, 31 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Report Wikilouco users for cyberbully

Tem um usuário chamado Jonnys que fez alguns artigos copiando as minhas discussão louca que eu comento pela destruipedia, eu tentei conversar com o The Log, o atual burocrata naquela Wiki para dar um jeito nesse usuário, mas ele além de zombar do meu pedido, como também me baniu infinitamente nessa wiki e deletou todas as minhas edições feitas naquele site. Eu acredito que eles estejam quebrando alguma regra sobre essa comunidade, sobre desrespeito dos usuários.

Translation: There is a user called Jonnys who made some articles copying my crazy discussion that I comment on destruipedia, I tried talking to The Log, the current bureaucrat on that Wiki to fix this user, but he not only mocked my request, but also infinitely banned me from this wiki and deleted all my edits made on that site. I believe they are breaking some rule about this community, about disrespecting users. Pérola Maniaco (talk) 02:32, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Só para esclarecer, Jonnys copiou alguns artigos da Destruipedia e você pediu a The Log para removê-los, certo? Se sim, você pode me linkar as páginas que ele copiou? Obrigado.
Eng: Just to clarify, Jonnys copied some articles from Destruipedia and you asked The Log to remove them, right? If so, can you link me the pages he copied? Thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:40, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
As I said, The Log deleted all my edits on that Wiki, but I admit I was a little ignorant with the bureaucrat, as it's part of my satirical personality. Pérola Maniaco (talk) 02:49, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I see but I am just asking for you to clarify this more for me to understand what's going on. From what I understand, Jonnys copied a discussion from Destruipedia, you asked The Log to remove it(?) and The Log banned you, correct? Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:57, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I understand now, it's not articles copied on Destruipedia, but my comments. This Jonny copied some of my opinions as you can compare here, which embarrassed me, because I didn't give permission to copy what I write on other sites, even more to make fun of. Pérola Maniaco (talk) 03:02, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Well, I didn't directly say to delete his articles, but rather that he could cause problems if this guy continues to attack. But the bureaucrat just ignored it, so I was meaner to him, which caused him to banish me. A pity is that he deleted and hidden, what I had written there. But The Log rewrote a comment of mine that I made in my own thread, this is very visible, that if you can view supplied edits. Pérola Maniaco (talk) 03:07, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I can see the hidden edits. While I believe you should not have been overly rude with your comments, I do believe a full blown ban is unwarranted. I will request more information from the bureaucrat and I'll get back to you soon. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:18, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Yes I appreciate your technical help. For me, just deleting the articles created by this Jonny will be enough. But about me being rude, it's part of my personality on this account, but here because it's a more serious area, so I should write seriously. Pérola Maniaco (talk) 10:39, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Commentary, eu sou apenas considerado um vândalo na Desciclopedia, em Uncommons e na UnMeta onde me citou eu não sou ainda um vândalo, sendo os meus únicos erros era eu ter banido indevidamente o Terror e ter entrado em atrito com o JPLSilva. Na Wikimerda eu tenho alguns atritos com os usuários, mas nada toxico conforme você me acusou diretamente, ao contrário dos usuários do Wikilouco que andam me atacando diretamente com artigos com indiretas a mim. Pois nessas wikis onde me chamas de vândalo eu me chamo Dragomaniaco, mas não tem nada haver com assuntos da comunidade Miraheze e não uso essas plantaformas para fazer ataques diretos as pessoas. Pérola Maniaco (talk) 17:42, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

More than a day has passed and the problem of this user here that attacked me by copying everything I I talk on another wiki, with the bureaucrat who lets these things happen there. Pérola Maniaco (talk) 10:50, 3 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Parece que finalmente o The Log respondeu na sua discussão Agent, mas ele não se justificou o motivo dele deixar que outro usuários tipo o Jonny usam a plantaforma para me bulinar. E mais uma coisa, é certeza absoluta que esse usuário não é o The Log, ele conviveu comigo por muitos anos na Desciclopedia, ele saberia muito bem dizer as confusões que eu causei por lá, ao contrário dessa pessoa falsa se passando por ele, apesar que por aqui ser uma wiki diferente da versão do Carlb, o usuário tem o direito de adotar qualquer nome que ele desejar, infelizmente.
Translation: Looks like The Log finally responded in your Agent thread, but he didn't explain why he let other users like Jonny use the platform to tease me. And one more thing, it is absolutely certain that this user is not The Log, he lived with me for many years on Desciclopedia, he would know very well how to tell the confusion I caused there, unlike this fake person pretending to be him, despite that because this is a different wiki than the Carlb version, the user has the right to adopt any name he wants, unfortunately.

CheckUser request for RTP

If you'll look at the abuse log for RTP, while it does seem to be a false positive for the nonciclopedia LTA, there are strong suggestions of illegitimate and duplicitous sockpuppetry given the largely two-party and ongoing dispute between two users on wikiloucowiki. Agent Isai is aware, but this more contemporary development does suggest a CheckUser request is in order. If confirmed, I'd suggest at least global locks for the socks, and a final warning to the master. Dmehus (talk) 16:56, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Update: Another recent user account has emerged with similar abuse log hits to RTP warranting a CheckUser investigation, particularly given the targeted nature of the edits, or attempted edits. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 20:30, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Deletion of the following pages from

Hello, I would like to request the deletion of the following pages from as I do not have the permissions to do it.

  • The Importance Of Wedding Rings And Tungsten Carbide - vandalism
  • Best Lactose Intolerance Tablets And Ideas For Traveling With Lactose Intolerance - vandalism
  • Yo-kai Watch Blasters - vandalism ZeusDeeGoose (talk) 18:20, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
ZeusDeeGoose, thanks for your report. The Importance Of Wedding Rings And Tungsten Carbide and Best Lactose Intolerance Tablets And Ideas For Traveling With Lactose Intolerance look to be lingering spam, rather than vandalism. The pages' creating user accounts, RobtRnw664185213 and DarrinMatra077 should also be globally locked as spambots; however, given the age of the spam page creations, a CheckUser investigation would be fruitless. Yo-kai Watch Blasters created by 2601:58a:180:44c0:9d9a:d535:277e:78fc looks to be a cross between vandalism and nonsense, so can be deleted as the latter. 2601:58a:180:44c0:9d9a:d535:277e:78fc looks to be a Comcast cable IP address, and could be blocked for vandalism, including globally, but given the age, that wouldn't be necessary. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 18:42, 1 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

CheckUser request for 2 suspected Anti villain/ Gigdsclasp sockpuppets

Aside from their duck-like usernames being similar to one another, there was one thing that caught my eye immediately: Their edits on this particular page on the Real Life Villains Wiki overlap with not just each other, but other prior socks such as Biyong, Pol Piyá Cm, Putin travels prevents his feces from falling into enemy hands, among the other socks that may or might not be listed in this report. In both PawnDonetskRussia and PwanDonetskRussia's edits, most of their edits are mostly focused on Vladimir Putin. I am hereby requesting a CheckUser on both of these accounts, and flush away any potential sleepers if possible. Thank you, and happy editing! :) DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 12:48, 3 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Something to say

uh, yesterday I self-requested to lock and vanish this account, plus, I've received a mention from said post but the revisions got wiped (and my account is still unlocked/un-vanished). I'm kinda confused, what happened? ComradeRabbit95 (talk) 18:41, 4 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@ComradeRabbit95: Simple answer: It had to be oversighted because publicly requesting your account to be vanished would be a bit of a problem. In any case, use the TSPortal or send an email to request your account to be vanished. That is the advice I could give you. Hope it helps. :) DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 23:10, 4 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Dormancy exemption request

Hey admins, I'd like to request that my wiki — the Republic of Independent Acadia — be exempt from deletion on account of it being a long term personal writing project. I've seen this reasoning used on other wikis listed on the exemptions page so thought I'd try my luck at getting the same exemption. It's far from my only creative venture so my contributions to it are sporadic. HanTyumi (talk) 06:05, 6 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@HanTyumi: I see that the wiki doesn't have too many pages just yet, is there a particular reason why you anticipate that you won't be editing this wiki but will still need the few pages? Reception123 (talk) (C) 09:33, 6 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It's not that I don't expect to make a lot of edits or add a lot of pages, the reasoning is that like I said my edits and writing is sporadic. So I may go long periods without editing it, but not abandoning it either. HanTyumi (talk) 21:34, 7 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Dormancy exemption request for erawiki

Dear Stewards, I am a bureaucrat and sysop of erawiki (

In accordance with the requirements of the Dormancy exemption, I would like to apply for a Dormancy exemption on behalf of that wiki. The reasons are as follows: 1. This wiki is currently for reading purposes only, and we have documented most of the era games currently available on the web. 2. This wiki is currently largely complete, with close to 200 pages covering game descriptions, playthroughs, cheats, troubleshooting, and more. We hope that you will pass our application, for which we are very grateful. ICARUSINERA (talk) 13:16, 6 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, commenting here as a volunteer. I have once tagged globally locked accounts (i.e. Special:Diff/248885), but then reverted by a former steward here, as it is considered unnecessary. I think this matter is at the discretion of stewards and really depending on the circumstances. -Cheers, Matttest (talk | contribs) 08:35, 8 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Generally, it depends on a number of factors. If the account was made by a serial puppeteer who used the account for a little time then it would be a waste of time to do that. On the other hand, if the sock was used extensively and a random lock out of nowhere is likely to confuse people then yes, tagging a user would be appropriate.

Yes check.svg Partially done. TestWiki I defer to a local actor. Circleyverse appears to be soft deleted; the problem is custom groups which are not in my Meta control. Recaptime and Astonishing Scratchers also have custom groups requiring local control. Only way I'd manage it is if I temporarily restore global userrights access. The rest I've removed centrally or in my local capacity, though that has been reduced as I've largely resigned from involvement in reception wikis. An SRE-Steward with more hats would probably be best to take another run through this to finish it off and if anything's left I'll consider something like temporary global userrights to get it done. There's no active local authority on remaining wikis except TestWiki. --Raidarr (talk) 12:07, 11 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
