Status Change

Since I do not know the official creator of my wiki I therefore can't get in contact with them.

I would like my status changed from Administrator to Bureaucrat.

It is this wiki: Life Wiki.

Thank you!

Increase wiki user privileges

I'm one of the users responsible for the wiki for the game: The user that created it and has the only Administrator privileges User:Betwixt is not active and is not working anymore (afaik) for the company that oversights the game, he was one of the Community Managers. We have 0 contacts with him for some time already. We discussed the matter on our Discord server (can be found on the bottom of the main wiki page) with other Community Managers and Moderators about it and we would like to request to grant Administrator privilege and Bureaucrat if possible to the new CM that oversees the game User:Snakeintheeye and Administrator privilege if Snakeintheeye cannot receive a Bureaucrat to the main Moderators User:Groxy or User:Cc (all of them are also present in the Discord server if necessary)

If there is anything that you would need from our side that could help us get control of our wiki, please let me/us know. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Delgon (talkcontribs) 13:08, 10 May 2020‎ UTC

Request to get perms back on oldfagdotorg wiki

I created and own the wiki oldfagdotorg, and recently intended to turn it private. I gave other people the bureacrat role, but left the admin role for myself. I didn't realize you couldnt remove other bureaucrats so I removed all their perms, and basically locked the wiki in on itself as now no one has the perms to manage it. Can someone fix this by readding perms to bureaucrat?

@Boatfullogoats: Could you like me to re-add the 'managewiki' permission to the bureaucrat group so that you can redo the permissions? Or would you like all the permissions to be reset to the default? Reception123 (talk) (C) 09:17, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

@Reception123 I would like all the perms to be reset to the default. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Boatfullogoats (talkcontribs)

@Boatfullogoats: Due to a technical issue on our side, the reset will have to wait for a while until we fix the issue with the reset script. I apologize for the inconvenience and if you need this quickly perhaps giving you the managewiki permission for now would work? Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:39, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
I've reset the permissions now. Reception123 (talk) (C) 09:29, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Dormancy exception request for SOS団Miraheze支部

I would like to request for SOS団Miraheze支部 to be exempted from Dormancy Policy. The wiki is read by fans of Haruhi Suzumiya series, and I'm a bureaucrat on the wiki. Although I can do it by myself, I think it's better to leave it to other stews as it's one of my home wikis. Thanks in advance.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 13:36, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

The Girlfriends Saga Wiki

The Girlfriends Saga Wiki is my own private wiki, i do not want it to be closed regardless of how long i take to edit it. So, could you please add it to the exemptions list so it won't be closed?

Thank you, Xenith Xenaku.


I created that wiki for a series that is still in the development phase and so that i can show people that i know the work that i have done.

Requesting bureaucrat rights on Template Wiki

Back in Jan 2018 I asked for a Miraheze template repository. MacFan4000 set it up. Understandably I was only given administrator rights not bureaucrat. That has been manageable, whenever some bureaucrat operation has been needed I'd request MacFan4000 to implement it. Now MacFan4000 seems to be dormant and I'd like Pppery to be given administrator on the grounds that he has been doing some fine work on the wiki and it would be useful for him to have access to those extra functions, e.g. Special:ReplaceText. Better still please can we both be given bureaucrat rights as we're the only users actually looking after Template Wiki? @MacFan4000: @Pppery: --Rob Kam (talk) 09:26, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Problem with inactive admin user and wiki being closed.

I'm new to wiki editing so a friend created this wiki like a template with the documentation I gave him and then he gave me the administrative rights so I can edit the content and learn also from it. This wiki is about my works and projects, it's the documentation of it and I made new content recently. Now I have a message that says this wiki will be closed in 15 days and will become eligible for adoption for inactivity even if I do make changes. I would like to adopt this wiki if it's possible. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aquilonis (talkcontribs) 22:53, 14 May 2020‎

@Aquilonis: Since there are still a few days before the wiki becomes closed and is eligible for adoption it might be easier for a Steward to grant you the rights on the wiki if you are the sole contributor (or if there's consensus). Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:36, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Steward review needed

Steward review of wiki creator right request needed at Meta:Requests for permissions. Sario528 (talk) 13:38, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

@Sario528: Usually 7 days are left before closing requests to give everyone time to comment. Also, your request only has two votes so far so I don't see why there's a need to hurry and close it. Reception123 (talk) (C) 14:45, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
Meta:Wiki creators says the request only needs to be open 3 days, so that's what I was going by. I'm ok with waiting the additional days however, if you think that's best. Sario528 (talk) 15:01, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
Oh, my bad. Well in any case since there's few votes I imagine it would be preferred to wait it out a bit more. I'll go vote too :) Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:46, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Yet another vandal e_e

There's a vandal named The Return of SonicClub 2 vandalizing Awful Movies Wiki. He's also impersonating a user named SonicClub. Please block his account ASAP.

Thank u, next, Eiji (talk) 19:16, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

There has only been vandalism on one wiki by the looks of it so I think for the time being the local block will be sufficient. Please let us know if you see them vandalizing on other wikis and action will be taken against them. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:34, 19 May 2020 (UTC)


This account is w:WP:QUACKING very loudly as a sock of Sourav Hadler. I don't want to publicly post the evidence because this person seems likely to exploit such an action (w:WP:BEANS) but will supply the evidence by email if a steward needs it. If the evidence is obvious enough, please block/lock the account. Amanda Catherine (talk) 16:37, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
