Stewards' noticeboard
This noticeboard is only requests that require Stewards', or, in a limited number of circumstances, Global Sysops', intervention. If in doubt, please try community noticeboard first, and you will be directed here if the matter requires a Steward

On Stewards' noticeboard (this page), you can:

  • Request a steward or Global Sysop to lock a spam only or vandalism only account. Note that for vandalism only accounts, the vandalism must meet the global standard definition for vandalism and to be a vandalism only account, there must be no or almost no constructive editing behaviour and, additionally, this behaviour should be occurring on multiple wikis
  • Report a Username Policy violation (whether in good-faith or bad faith)
  • Report a user suspected of abusing multiple accounts per user accounts policy. You must link to specific revisions from both the suspected master and illegitimate alternate account(s)
  • Request additional permissions on your wiki(s) that can only be granted by a steward, such as local interwiki administrator
  • Request a page requiring the bigdelete user right (more than 1,000 revisions) be deleted on your wiki
  • Request a Dormancy Policy exemption for your wiki
  • Report systemic Code of Conduct problems occurring by one or more user(s) on one or more wiki(s) and/or systemic Content Policy violations on one or more wiki(s). In either case, your report must link to specific revisions and, in the latter case, your report must be both thorough and comprehensive

If you would like to:


Please remember to:

  • Sign your request using ~~~~

Please close

Hello, I would like to request that https://hypopedia.miraheze.org be deleted. I no longer want the wiki project and I can confirm I am/was the only bureaucrat there as well as active user. Thank you. Hypercane (talk) 23:46, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

Relisted pending steward action. Dmehus (talk) 13:44, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Wiki was removed, and now can't be reopened

My wiki (https://thisland.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page) was closed due to inactivity, and I didn't receive any warnings in advance by email.

I emailed tech@ and was told that my wiki has been reopened. Now when I visit I see "This wiki has been closed because there have been no edits or logs made within the last 60 days. This wiki is now eligible for being adopted. To adopt this wiki please go to Requests for adoption and make a request. If this wiki is not adopted within 6 months it may be deleted. Note: If you are a bureaucrat on this wiki you can go to Special:ManageWiki and uncheck the "closed" box to reopen it." I went to Special:ManageWiki but I am unable to uncheck the "closed" box.

Could anyone help me get my wiki working again? Could anyone help me to make sure that I will get email notifications next time the wiki is about to be taken offline?

Thank you! Cassolotl (talk) 17:05, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

If you are a bureaucrat, you can go to the wiki and type Special:ManageWiki/core and uncheck the closed box and click submit. Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 17:17, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
I just went to https://thisland.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:ManageWiki/core and there's "Manage this wiki's core settings > Select what you would like to manage below, and click submit! > Main Settings", but all the options are greyed out and I'm unable to do anything! Cassolotl (talk) 17:25, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
I do not see that message, you should be fine to edit normally. Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 17:37, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
@Cassolotl: This seems to have been resolved in these log actions by Void. So, you should be able to edit on the wiki now. Dmehus (talk) 18:45, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
Thank you, I am now able to edit! Cassolotl (talk) 13:46, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

My wiki has a closed notice on it again. It says "This wiki has been closed because there have been no edits or logs made within the last 60 days." Here is an edit history showing that the wiki has been edited within the last 60 days. It says that if I'm a bureaucrat I can go to https://thisland.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:ManageWiki and uncheck the closed box, but all the options are greyed out and I am unable make changes or save.

Could you please reopen the wiki? Thank you! :) --Cassolotl (Talk) (My wiki) (Pronouns: they/them) 11:14, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

It seems to be open again...? This is very confusing! :D --Cassolotl (Talk) (My wiki) (Pronouns: they/them) 22:11, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
I don't know what happened to you there, but you should be all set to go now. -- Void Whispers 23:18, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Cannot request wiki

I am trying to request the brother wiki of Terrific Television Networks Wiki, Worst Television Networks Wiki, but it says I have an invalid character, but they don't say which. Please help. I have no idea (talk) 00:13, 2 October 2020 (UTC)

@I have no idea: First, thank you for signing your noticeboard posts with four tildes (~~~~). Second, without knowing which character you were trying to use or the position of said character, we cannot diagnose the problem. Third, this seems to be moot as I have now  created your wiki. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 00:29, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
Stupid me! It turns out I put the wiki name in the URL. I have no idea (talk) 23:48, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
@I have no idea:  No problem! I did wonder about that when I saw the request, but am glad this has now been handled and your wiki created. Dmehus (talk) 13:46, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Requesting that my wiki be made exempt from deletion

I would like to request that my wiki be made exempt from deletion; it's a project that I come back to periodically, but don't have the time to make substantial edits to as often as I would like. Nyzari (talk) 23:07, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

@Nyzari: Thank you for submitting a request for an exemption to Dormancy Policy. A steward will review it in due course, and, in the course of my clerking this noticeboard for stewards as a Meta administrator, I will ensure this thread is monitored and relisted until actioned. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 01:21, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

Please lock Ilikemoney for abuse of multiple accounts.

One of the block reasons even showed that he is "A child looking for attention; bullying one of the administrators; and admitting that his Mento account is a sockpuppet of Ilikemoney". I know you stewards wouldn't want to waste any time to do the investigations for me, but I believe you should ask @Zeephare: for the confirmation. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 10:24, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

Also, I have taken a screenshot of what his profile on Crappy Games Wiki looks like. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 10:29, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

The influx of users in bulk

On October 1st, my Wiki had a large influx of users at the same time, as detailed in the Log, and I applied to check those users to prevent them from bypassing human-machine testing.城市酸儒文人挖坑 (talk) 11:05, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

Global lock for 팰로우 부캐 and 초록모자

This user is same person, cross-wiki abuse. --Gomdoli4696 (talk) 02:20, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

@Gomdoli4696: Thank you for formatting your report both neutrally and nicely, from the perspective of wikitext formatting. Nevertheless, stewards cannot go on "fishing expeditions" in their use of the CheckUser tool to investigate contraventions of user accounts policy, nor will they typically look through Special:Contributions pages from a user's CentralAuth. So, in addition to the above, can you link to several of the best diffs from each user that show the best DUCK-like behavioural evidence, in the format of [[mh:subdomain:fullpagename|optional piped link for displayed text]]? You can link to them in an ordered or unordered list, indented per established conventions. @DarkMatterMan4500:, I am looping you in to this reply as well, as you frequent stewards' noticeboard, and this advice would likely serve you well, too. Either of you can use the script from line 5 of my global.js file in your global global.js file, or a local common.js file on a given wiki. Dmehus (talk) 02:33, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: The reason I'm so sure is that because the account is the same user in Korean wikipedia. (Wikipedia:ko:User:팰로우 부캐, Wikipedia:ko:User:초록모자) Thanks. --Gomdoli4696 (talk) 02:38, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
Note: This user is requested new wiki. Special:RequestWikiQueue/14579 --Gomdoli4696 (talk) 02:42, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Well okay then. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 11:32, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
Um... I think 초록모자 user regretted a lot, so Gomdoli4696 and I unblocked 초록바지 at freewiki and parangsaewiki. I think the user should not be locked. --Whitetiger0423 (talk) 07:25, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus and Whitetiger0423: Cancel, this user is not currently blocked on any wiki. --Gomdoli4696 (talk) 11:24, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
@Gomdoli4696 and Whitetiger0423: Thanks; this seems to be a case of this having been  locally resolved, which is good. If I might make a recommendation for you to pass on to the subject user, I would recommend the user making a global user page for each of the above accounts, stating that the one account is an alternate account of the other, and the other account is the primary account of the other. User accounts policy doesn't require it, but it does help to show good-faith in operating two accounts. If one account is no longer used, the user page(s) can say this as well. Dmehus (talk) 14:21, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Lock Spain is so strange

Spain is so strange is a spam-only account in order to spam the wikis with trolling videos, and also resorted to insulting a couple of users over something petty and stupid. Just look at all of the evidence here: https://awfulmovies.miraheze.org/wiki/Blog:Message_by_Spain_is_so_strange DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 14:06, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

And the action appears to have been  done by @Void: since yesterday. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 11:35, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Please lock this account for being a vandalism-only account

I'm Roger, the thief of Robo City. I try to away from the pets. But when night falls, my day begins. Got you! In your dreams tin slug! I'll drop you off at Pamper Pets. Beauty time for my little tiger. Doesn't Ronaldo look good. Yes. is apparently a vandalism only account judging by his "contributions" on here. I would highly advise you to globally lock this account, especially with all the evidence on all the wikis. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 15:28, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

@DarkMatterMan4500: @Hookuai: already reported this as a Username Policy violation, which, as I explained on Discord, probably qualifies as an obvious troll username, but we don't generally, by custom or past practice, like to lock solely on that basis. However, if the user is solely vandalizing, I would suggest a dual lock reason of Username Policy violation / vandalism only account, per the quasi-related small precedent. Dmehus (talk) 17:28, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

Content Policy Violators?

I'm now aware that Miraheze is closing wikis that are spreading drama and negativity. When did this start?

Also, I have wikis that aren't investigated. Real Live Villains Wiki and Trollpedia

RLVWiki - Mostly Rumours.

Trollpedia - Inciting Drama and Troll Feeding.

To anyone who know me, stop babbling that i'm going on another wiki snitching. Deal with it that I'm a strict person. --Zirukurt01 (talk) 01:24, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

@Zirukurt01: Well, Content Policy has always been a global policy, and stewards and Global Sysops have always acted with regard to very problematic content or conduct by local wiki users and administrators, particularly when the Code of Conduct is involved. Generally speaking, it involved reacting, and taking action on, specific instances. More recently, stepped up warnings have been given to users on those wikis from those global groups, and others, including myself as an active community volunteer but not in my capacity as a Code of Conduct Commission commissioner, as to this pervasive nature of the problems with the hope they would take heed of the advice being given (which they obviously did not). This increased enforcement and awareness as to the systemic and pervasive nature of the global policy violations, which went unremediated, are what precipitated the decision by stewards to close certain wikis. The first of those two wikis I am certainly aware of, as likely are others; however, the decision to close or lock and make private a wiki is not taken lightly. As such, your report would need to be more thorough and cite specific multiple problem pages, what's wrong with the pages, how the problem is pervasive, and the like. It's not enough to just say, "head's up—take a look at this wiki and that wiki." Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 01:47, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Lock Demino

He's a confirmed alt of Inkster. Special:CentralAuth/Demino --— Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1008:b04f:f892:88d8:eea2:887c:4ede (talkcontribs) 13:36, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Stewards are well aware of this account, and are monitoring it. They will take action as warranted and as they are able. As a procedural matter for the future, please ensure all your reports of users contain evidence, typically in the form of relevant evidence (i.e., diffs) to local wikis. Dmehus (talk) 14:12, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
It's me, Inkster. Demino (talk) 15:23, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
The account has been locked for abusing multiple accounts. You may appeal to stewards at miraheze.org but you may not violate the User accounts policy and create accounts in violation of your lock. Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:15, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Exemption dormancy policy for Vaccabolario wiki

Hi stewards,

I'm the Vaccabolario wiki's bureaucrat, asking the dormancy policy exemption as, for your own rules, this wiki, being a Dictionary, is mostly made to be read (and, considering it's 99% text, it won't take that much room on Miraheze's servers anyway).

I would like to add a lot of (text) contents/definitions, after the initial ones I already inserted but, not being sure my time and efforts will be trashed if the wiki won't have contributions, later, I'm waiting for a your decision about the exemption: please do tell me in both cases, if it will be done or not, thanks.

I asked it in a recent past (20200629, 20200731, and 20200911) but, not seeing my wiki listed into Exemptions list, nor an approval/deny comment from you, I'm asking again.

Thanks in advance,

ElweThor (talk) 14:03, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

@ElweThor: I will {{ping}} a steward on Discord and ask them to assess your request. It's a dictionary, as you say, so it's useful, and likely to be used by real people. Dmehus (talk) 14:08, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

IP leak glitch for blogs when changing names

Hello, I noticed that for a while after I had my name changed there was a glitch that resulted in the "by" section of blogs that I have written being replaced with my IP address. Please look into fixing this if possible. Paprika (talk) 15:15, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi, Can you please send more information via [1] including a link to an example of the issue or email security[at]miraheze.org . I do have a feeling about this and it might be the IP of whoever is viewing the page. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     around) 15:17, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
I quickly checked and it does appear to be the IP of the person visiting the page. Still an upstream bug that needs fixing. -- Void Whispers 15:20, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
OH, I had believed it was an IP leak because the blog belonged to me in particular. It would still be good to look into it however. Paprika (talk) 15:22, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
We've found the bug. I'm shocked this is the first time anyone's noticed that / this hacks method fell apart. It looks like one of Ashley's extensions so I'll see if they have any thoughts later today on it. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     around) 15:39, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
I also experienced this glitch when I go to blogs. CircleyDoesExtracter(Circley Talk | Global |Email the Cloud) 16:21, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
Just to make very clear here, We can't see any evidence of anything other than your own IP being shown. To fix this, just rename the category link to your current username and this should work. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     around) 17:19, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
@RhinosF1: Yeah, that's what I assumed was likely the case, and I'm wondering if is similar, or related, to a previous issue I reported (likely on Discord) when one views Special:RequestWikiQueue on wikis other than Meta. In the "requestor" field, one's own IP address is shown. Dmehus (talk) 17:48, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
It's the same root cause but a very different bug. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     around) 18:06, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
@RhinosF1: Ah, yeah, I figured they'd be different bugs for sure, but that's what I was thinking if they were related in terms of the root cause. Perhaps when we have a solution/fix for the one, that will make fixing the other easier. Dmehus (talk) 21:15, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

A Wiki I requested

I recently requested a Croatian Wiki named SonicWiki with the subdomain sonichr.miraheze.org. I was told the request was successful but I haven't heard anything about the Wiki's creation. The notification for when a Wiki is created hasn't been sent to me. What is the problem? Imjustthere (talk) 18:42, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

@Imjustthere: It's probably in review. Let me review it, and others, now. We're all volunteers. Dmehus (talk) 18:45, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for the response. I usually get a notification for a Wiki's creation quick, so I kinda got confused. Imjustthere (talk) 18:51, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

Lock King Coronavirus UTTP THDTC

King Coronavirus UTTP THDTC has an inappropriate username and needs to be globally locked, due to the nature of the username. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 15:38, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

@DarkMatterMan4500: I personally view this as not an inappropriate username. If it were wishing Coronavirus or COVID-19 on users, then yes, that'd be an awful Username Policy violation. But simply stating "COVID-19" or "Coronavirus" in one's own username is not, in and of itself, a violation of that global policy. If 90% or more of the user's edits are unconstructive blatant vandalism, then that's a vandalism only account, but it's not a UP violation. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 15:45, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Yes, but isn't there a policy against users who have troll-like usernames? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 15:50, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@DarkMatterMan4500: Yes, but in practice and by steward/Global Sysop convention, that UP criterion is rarely applied in isolation. It's usually used together when another UP criterion is violated, or when the user is a vandalism only account. For now, I would think locally blocking, and locally warning, via the user's local talk page, should be sufficient. You should also take care to advise of them of their obligations to user accounts policy and to appeal their local block via their user talk page on that wiki (or e-mail, if talk page access is revoked), versus creating additional accounts. I believe it's important to be both friendly and proactive to all users in advising them of all global policies. Dmehus (talk) 15:55, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

Username Policy violation for REDACTED

Also, I've spotted an inappropriate username with homophobia on it. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 15:52, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

@DarkMatterMan4500: This is a Username Policy violation, so have split it into a separate topic. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 15:56, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: No problem. Also, why not just lock the account now? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 16:00, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
 Locked Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:00, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@DarkMatterMan4500: I would've if I were a Global Sysop or steward, but seeing this awful username, I instead reported it on #miraheze-cvt connect. You should consider registering and/or downloading IRCCloud, which will give you a complimentary IRC cloak automatically, as it's a very efficient way to report such problematic global policy violations, especially actual UP violations. Dmehus (talk) 16:03, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Thanks for the tip. I might do that some time. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 16:07, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@Reception123: What about this one? Shouldn't that account be locked too? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 16:36, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@DarkMatterMan4500: Depends on who is behind that username. It's not making disparaging comments about autistic people, and it could very well be the user wishes to self-declare their autism in their username. It's a UP violation as impersonation if we have a GoAnimate user and this user is not their alternate account. I'd probably warn them first and ask for an account confirmation. Dmehus (talk) 18:51, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Please do. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 11:28, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

Can you decline the name request I sent?

I decided I don't want to change my username for now.
ItMeansNothing (talk) 17:07, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

@ItMeansNothing: Okay, thanks. I haven't seen it processed, so will {{ping}} @NDKilla, Void, and John: to please cancel your global rename request in the queue. Dmehus (talk) 18:46, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@WageTheClancist12: Unfortunately, your global rename request was processed today by a steward, so hopefully you are okay with your requested username. If not, you request a new rename, or just leave it as is until you settle on a new name. We do try and encourage people not to change their name too frequently, though (i.e., ideally one username change per twelve month timeframe is a good guideline). Dmehus (talk) 02:35, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Admin Transfer per Election Results

Wiki: https://powder.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page Election: https://powder.miraheze.org/wiki/Polls

After forgetting my original admin password, I created a new account, MaximoMaxim, and held a wiki-wide election, as was suggested in a previous post on this board, in order to transfer admin status. I am proud to say the election was a success with MaximoMaxim winning the role of Admin with 1 vote. I am requesting a steward assess this election and action upon the results. Thank you.

 Done John (talk) 10:15, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
I apologize I am simply being dumb, but it seems I still lack admin rights for the POWDER wiki. I cannot delete pages and Administrator does not appear in my user preferences. MaximoMaxim (talk) 03:08, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
@MaximoMaxim: I checked your wiki's user rights log, and didn't see any reference to you accidentally removing rights from yourself. I also checked Meta's user rights log, with @John: as performer, since that's where stewards change users' rights on other wikis, and didn't see anything. So, I am betting John marked this as done, but forget to grant rights. So, I have pinged him to this thread. Dmehus (talk) 04:05, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
@MaximoMaxim: @John: has now  granted you the requested local user rights on your wiki. So this is now  Done. Dmehus (talk) 01:43, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Trying to chatting with newcomers with some kindful manner with change of heart and passions of certain franchise like Mario/Nintendo. So I will be a clever person is especially jarring when doing like that. Also there is no the word "blocked forever" in the certain wikis for being innocent actions because those being victims of that will be find altruist. I'm gonna move on to the other wikis except those closed because of content policy. Pardon is a great thing, and expressing my regret is very caring.

Ps. again. These links to wikis I given is broken, you can select the broken link then you can either click copy-paste your web-bar, link-bar, etc (pardon me I cannot understanding like that), or you can click go to(web name), so it's so easy to step in to insert your web link do you want.

Page missing after moving the wiki

Hello, this page and related talk seem to be missing and there's nothing in the history, but I'm sure the page existed before. I tried deleting and restoring it but it didn't work. Is it possible for you to restore it? Thanks. Wedhro (talk) 15:29, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

Is it possible to global a user that is potentially putting bias in pages and making biased pages claiming their facts and removing facts from pages claiming they're biased?

I feel like a user (not going to mention his name yet) is making biased pages and adding bias to pages claiming their facts and removing facts from pages claiming their biased and I want to know if that's a valid reason for a global block and if yes, then I'll tell you who the user is. Pacsonic9000 (talk) 20:46, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

@Pacsonic9000: I assume by global a user, you are referring to globally locking a user's account? Generally speaking, we lock user accounts that are either (a) a vandalism only account (i.e., they have no, or almost no, constructive edits), (b) they are a spam only account/spambot account, (c) they have inappropriately contravened user accounts policy, (d) their user account name is a Username Policy violation (which can be appealed and unlocked to request a rename), or (e) they have, despite multiple warnings by stewards, grossly and egregiously violated the Code of Conduct. So that reason would not be a reason, no. Dmehus (talk) 20:49, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: So is there any consequences for a user that makes biased pages and adding bias to pages claiming their facts and removing facts from pages claiming they're biased? Can they end up getting blocked for that reason? Pacsonic9000 (talk) 00:54, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
@Pacsonic9000: That's a very vague and open-ended question. Biased in itself is not problematic. If there is unsourced information about users or real people, particularly those who are Miraheze users, then that may be a Code of Conduct issue. I would encourage you to read that global policy, together with Content Policy, and see if either apply to your situation. In any case, all reports must be substantiated with evidence—that is, permanent links to specific page revisions. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 02:29, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Would a biased page that was made just for defamation and uses biased sources be violating guidelines? Pacsonic9000 (talk) 22:13, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
@Pacsonic9000: Defamation wouldn't be acceptable, per the Code of Conduct. If the pages are wholly negative and meant to disparage the individual, that's both a potential Content Policy, but context matters (i.e., the reliability of the sources), issue (in addition to being a potential Code of Conduct issue for the user(s) that added said content). If it's a community-edited encyclopedia or TheTopTens being used as sources, those aren't in any way reliable sources, so that would be unsourced defamatory information. In terms of it being a problem with the wiki or just limited to the user(s) that created that content, it would really depend on how systemic and pervasive the problem is. I'm reluctant to say anything more, as I'm just giving you this information by helping to clarify our Content Policy and Code of Conduct for you. Obviously, there are context dependent circumstances that matter here. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 23:26, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Would this page be classified as defamation since it uses mainly left wing sources that are biased and the page is biased and defamatory? https://rottenwebsites.miraheze.org/wiki/Survivors_of_the_Abortion_Holocaust Also, they are deleting some comments that are against the page and downvoting comments that are also against the page. Pacsonic9000 (talk) 21:16, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
@Pacsonic9000: Thank you for reporting that page. I had an initial read through of the page, and while it's definitely very controversial and quite likely attempting to incite a highly controversial discussion (i.e., a "flame war"), I personally didn't see anything that would necessitate a Global Sysop or steward to delete the page. It's within the bounds of freedom of speech, around which Miraheze was founded. That said, before looking at the page, I did report it to Reception123 on Discord, and he will review the page tomorrow. However, I suspect it will not be deleted. I would just add the following caveats, though, namely that (a) I hadn't looked at the comments on the page and (b) I hadn't looked at users' edit summaries on the page or block summaries related to that page. So, there could be potential conduct issues, but content-wise, despite being highly controversial and as I say, "flame bait," it's probably not a Content Policy violation.

Delete Qingwiki

I would like to file the deletion of 大清帝國百科 at https://qing.miraheze.org/. I am sorry to file such a request just within 24 hours of the creation of the wiki but I feel that I and others that I aim to create this wiki together will find it a bit difficult in importing template, modules and thus I would like it to be deleted. Sorry for all the things that @Dmehus helped with when creating this wiki and thanks! 谷杭小包子 (talk) 05:17, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Request wiki deletion

This is 404 Error's role account for dealing with wikis. Delete corrupt wiki scpwikimc.miraheze.org. It is also useless. Instance (talk) 10:55, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Can't Log In To My Account

I logged out of my account SiliconValley 8b8t and now I can't log back in, I typed in the password and it said incorrect, but however I forgot to put an email into it, so I'm thinking of a password reset.

Not just that but that account also owns a wiki called 1b1t.miraheze.org. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Logged out IP user (contribs) 19:55, 9 October 2020‎ (UTC)

@SiliconValley8b8t: Looks like you  solved your own problem. Indeed, request a password reset if you've forgotten your password or otherwise can't login. Hopefully you have an e-mail address attached to that account. Dmehus (talk) 20:22, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Interwiki admin for me @ scpminecraft@miraheze.org

For managing IW entries. I will only add HTTPS sites. Instance (talk) 05:34, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

@Instance: Hi, for now, you can not pretend to have this right on your wiki because you don't meet the requirement described on this page (TLDR: You need to have 1000 edits over Miraheze Network, 2 months old on your global account and be trusted). But if you need to had some Interwiki entry on your wiki, you can ask for it here and a global Interwiki administrators will take the request :). HeartsDo (Talk || Global || Wiki Creator) 06:41, 11 October 2020 (UTC)
@HeartsDo and Instance: I believe @Instance: is requesting local interwiki administrator on a single wiki. It's not well known, as it's a local user group that is only granted by stewards, mainly for security reasons. The current global policy for that user group is that the user must hold bureaucrat permissions on the wiki being requested. It's true, though, that Instance could request, at community noticeboard, a global interwiki administrator to add any interwiki prefixes to his local wiki's interwiki table. This is not the user's first account, as they've identified this as the "role account" of User:404 Error. On the other hand, they've requested deletion on this noticeboard of their previous Minecraft wiki, so if you exclude those global edits from consideration, they don't have a lot of edits. Though not necessarily codified in the policy, I would tend to concur with HeartsDo that requesting a few interwiki prefixes be added at community noticeboard is honestly your best bet.

Please delete my bonziworld wiki

I am no longer affiliated with the fandom of bonziworld and I will never go in the rollercoaster, but I kindly ask you to delete my wiki (bwr.miraheze.org) please. Thanks! ItzCrazyScout (talk) 16:50, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

@ItzCrazyScout: Okay, thanks. A steward should review and action your request for deletion in due course. In the mean time, please make sure you have closed your wiki in its Special:ManageWiki page, so that natural processes will take care of deletion eventually as well.

Lock VosVosKitsune

She's an evade alt account of Zenko and she admitted that she was. Also both have similar behavior, as both wish for Fun shitposting wiki to get deleted off the web (I have proof about the evade account (VosVosKitsune) wishing the same thing, just see the edit summary.). Not to mention, both write long extremely long and unnecessary paragraphs (more proof). - M̶̩͎̈e̷͚͊͠M̶͍͛̕è̷͙G̶̖̀̕ͅu̶͖̘͂Y̴̨̢͠W̶̼̻̓̕ḁ̸̩̐̊s̶͙͠L̵̙͇̈́ŏ̷̲͝s̷͈̅ṭ̷̎́ (𝕊𝕔𝕣𝕖𝕒𝕞𝕚𝕟𝕘 / 𝔸𝕔𝕔𝕠𝕦𝕟𝕥 𝕚𝕟𝕗𝕠) 23:06, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

@MeMeGuYWasLost: I note that your "report" in this thread is very similar, extremely so, to this report by a logged out IP editor. So, I would just remind you of user accounts policy, a global policy, and your obligations to it, including editing while logged out. Have you, or have you ever, created any additional Miraheze accounts? While not ideal in that, ideally, the user should discuss privately with stewards their plans to return to Miraheze, the fact that VosVosKitsune has steered clear of wikis on which Zenko was previously locally blocked is both very positive and shows the user has the capacity for change. I would also note that many of those wikis have since been closed and made private, or deleted, by stewards for serious Code of Conduct and Content Policy violations, which went unremediated despite numerous warnings and advisories from global functionaries. Nonetheless, regarding your report, continuing to drag up the same old drama, frankly, is tiring, and I would really urge you to drop the stick. Dmehus (talk) 23:42, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

Please note that I have only reported the most used/abused open proxies. I may not have a lot of time within the six months period due to a lot of issues awaiting me in real life.

@Synoman Barris: Thanks for your report. That's quite the list, so for readability of this page, I've wrapped the list in {{collapse top}} and {{collapse bottom}}. A steward or Global Sysop should review and action your report accordingly. Dmehus (talk) 19:10, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Please delete these users/cyberbullies' Mirahaze as they stole/copied our wikia and have tried to slander our name!!

I am the owner and admin of the Horrible and Best Music Wikias on Fandom. But earlier today I noticed a wikia that copied us is still up. I've tried emailing the tech, conduct, and steward team for some time for the last month and a half to barely any response.

Now for context, back in 2018/2019 a group of users tried to get revenge on us for not complying and agreeing with their malicious opinions and for blocking them so they made their own version of our wikia that promoted hate, bias, and completely copied and stole several of our pages and rules. We confronted them about it a year ago and they said they took it down, but recently a friend of mine informed me that it's still up and being edited on.

Is it possible that you could take it down because they were (and probably are) still trying to convince people they were the victims and spreading false allegations and lies about us on Fandom, including that we were going through a downfall, even though we're doing just fine.

Also, these same people have also made a biased Miraheze aimed at bad wikias and users, which wouldn't be too bad except most of the pages are lies and clearly just made to get revenge on those on Fandom who have "wrong them", especially us since we blocked them for toxic behavior. Is it possible you could get these Mirahezes taken down because most of these people are notorious cyberbullies/toxic users who just want us to get hated on and ruin reputations of people who disagree with them for years.

Also, since Fandom is having us move off their website I just wanted to make sure they are gone because me and my team don't want to be associated with those websites or accused of copying them, when they were the one's who stole/copied us!! When they heard the news that we were being shut down, they made a celebratory post on the fake wikia.

@HarmonTower805: I'm sorry to hear about the problems. Unfortunately, since you've licensed your wikis' content under a CreativeCommons license, the Miraheze version(s) of your wikis' content is perfectly allowed. They don't even necessarily have to provide full attribution history; ideally, they should provide a link to the source page on your wiki in an edit summary for every page copied, but at minimum, they could simply have a "copyright information" page stating the sources from where they copied their content. As to claims of libel, your report to stewards would need to be much more comprehensive than this, citing individual diffs as stewards don't have the time to investigate broad and vague claims. In short, you must do the investigating, and supply the evidence, which stewards will assess. One of those Miraheze wikis you've linked to, Unfavorable Fandom Wikis has been closed and made private by stewards on unrelated Content Policy and systemic Code of Conduct violations, so it will be deleted in accordance with Dormancy Policy. In the mean time, no one can view that wiki, and it is locked, so existing wiki members cannot edit it under any circumstances. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 01:41, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
Alright, I guess this does help and give a little closure...but basically you're saying that I just need to be able to convince stewards with evidence that I'm in the right, even though the cyberbullies stole our wikia without our consent and try to slander us? HarmonTower805 (talk) 7:50, 12 October 2020 (MST)
@HarmonTower805: I mean, if those wikis have not provided any attribution to your wiki, I'm sure stewards could be convinced to require the wiki to add an attribution page that links to your wiki(s) in question, but I would just note they didn't "steal your wiki"; see my above comments. Claims of cyberbullying are another matter and could contravene the Code of Conduct, which is something that would concern stewards; however, your report must be thorough and evidence supported. If, following your report, the resolution by stewards is unsatisfactory, or if stewards have not acted on your follow up thorough report, you may e-mail the Code of Conduct Commission if it concerns the Code of Conduct. The e-mail address is conduct at miraheze.org. I would just note that, though I am not a steward, I am an elected member of the Code of Conduct Commission, so I can't really provide any further comment or advice regarding your potential case. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 03:29, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

I want to change private to public

Special:RequestWikiQueue/14498#mw-section-comments. What does stewards' think? --Gomdoli4696 (talk) 03:11, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

To my understanding, you should be able to change this through Special:ManageWiki. Are you not? Naleksuh (talk) 03:16, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
Request approved and wiki created. Conditionally approved as a private test wiki of the requestor and any invited users whom they make member or sysop. I have BOLDly made the wiki request private, for procedural expediency, rather than decline, and request the requestor change it to "private." As this is a test wiki, it cannot be approved as a public test wiki without consensus from the TestWiki community and/or at community noticeboard. So, please do not change your wiki to public without such consensus and closure by a steward. Thanks.

Gomdoli4696 (talk) 03:19, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
@Gomdoli4696: Thank you filing this request, but I approved your wiki, conditionally, as it's a test wiki. By long-established convention that supplements Content Policy, public test wikis should have the endorsement of the Public Test Wiki community at TestWiki's community portal. Please put forward a proposal to the local community, if you wish, but I would just note you can add anyone you wish as a member or sysop to your private wiki. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 03:22, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: It's not a public wiki, but I hope everyone can see it. and I'll create abuse filter. Gomdoli4696 (talk) 03:24, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
@Gomdoli4696: That's not the issue. The issue is that we only need one Public Test Wiki, and, invariably, confusion ensues when there are multiple general purpose public test wikis on Miraheze. Thus, you do need to establish local consensus on TestWiki to make your wiki public. Or, you can keep your wiki private, and instead invite a few friends and colleagues to your wiki, adding them to the member or sysop group. They can see your entire wiki when in those groups; otherwise, they can only see your Main Page. I hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 03:32, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
I'll make filter, if editor is not has editprotect right, only can edit project namespace (and can add join request). So, this wiki is semi-public wiki. How about this? Gomdoli4696 (talk) 03:45, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
@Gomdoli4696: Well, you have this wiki, which is already public. You requested this wiki on the condition that it be a private wiki. We have, in the past, allowed private test wikis, to experiment with ManageWiki, but I see no reason to approve a competing public test wiki when Public Test Wiki serves this purpose, and I would Strong oppose any attempt to make it public without you having first obtained local consensus to start public fork of TestWiki at TestWiki's community portal. How does that sound? Thanks. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 03:51, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Please Close This Wiki

Hello, I would like to request that https://thenewreceptionwiki.miraheze.org be deleted. The founder, Maddox121, no longer wants the wiki and regrets creating it as shown on the Main Page. The wiki also caused onsite and offsite drama. Alairma (talk) 03:58, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

@Alairma: Hi. Any bureaucrat on the wiki can close it themselves by going to Special:ManageWiki and checking the closed box. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:28, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
The bureaucrats there refuse to close the wiki. The wiki steals numerous pages from Crappy Games Wiki, Awful Movies Wiki, etc. and caused a lot of drama. Plus, General I80 is a corrupt user and caused a lot of damage to the wiki. Alairma (talk) 13:30, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
@Alairma: I mean, in theory, you could hold a local poll on the wiki requesting the wiki be closed and locked, but if that wiki has active local bureaucrats and administrators, it would not surprise me if they ended up locally blocking you for that, so personally I wouldn't recommend that. What I would recommend is that you compile a list of diffs (or revisions) that indicate a systemic pattern of either, or both, Content Policy and Code of Conduct violations. The former generally applies to the content on the wiki, whereas the latter applies to users' (including administrators') conduct, typically in the form of their comments, edit summaries, and log summaries. This will take time, but overall, a thorough, substantive report will carry a lot more weight with stewards than a "please close this wiki because local administrators are biased and dramatic" report. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 14:26, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Can you please lock MillyComedian4567?

https://astonishingscratchers.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/MillyComedian4567

They are vandalizing multiple pages on Astonishing Scratchers Wiki and adding unacceptable and biased stuff to the "Bad Qualities" headings. Can you deal with them? Because they might be a troll. Thanks! Oh, and they are also possibly these IP users saying rude things against men, which is sexist. -- Perry The Chiweenie (talk) 12:07, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

As the vandalism is limited to one wiki, there is no need for a global lock at this time. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:12, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for letting me know! I just think they're a troll, that's all. :) -- Perry The Chiweenie (talk) 12:14, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
Yes, that seems to be the case and CircleyDoesExtracter has already blocked them locally on the wiki so that will be sufficient for the time being. If it spreads to other wikis they will be globally locked (feel free to let me know). Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:16, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I saw they were blocked. Thanks anyway! -- Perry The Chiweenie (talk) 13:07, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Please Lock General I80

I would like to request a global lock on General I80 because he whiteknights Zenko like she's better than Jesus Christ, caused drama on numerous wikis, claims that haters of TheTopTens and Adolf Hitler are SJWs, can't handle people hating TheTopTens, unfairly blocked people on The New Reception Wiki as well as the recently closed Common Sense Wiki, and had a Hitler profile pic on the now closed Unfavorable Wikis and Users Wiki. Alairma (talk) 02:17, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

@Alairma: As it has been repeated numerous times on this page as well as in other places, this so called "whiteknighting" is not a violation of any sort of global policy, and as such would not justify a global lock. If you have evidence of any other inappropriate conduct and/or global policy violations, please do provide links so that it can be investigated. Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:22, 15 October 2020 (UTC)
I have proof of him unfairly blocking people on Common Sense Wiki right here, which shows how delusional he is, since he was blocked for causing drama which is a good reason to block people. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alairma (talkcontribs) 14:17, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

CheckUser request.


Many are suspecting that this is a sock of Inkster, a globally locked user. He tried to get l80 globally locked which is something only Inkster did. -- ACoolBlaze5 (talk) 02:27, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

You know, there are lots of reasons why I80 should be globalled. Alairma (talk) 03:09, 15 October 2020 (UTC)
@Alairma: Since you have not denied what was said above regarding you being a sockpuppet of Inkster, I have to ask, is what is being said above true? Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:20, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

Sanction against mainline reception families wiki on discord server

@QwertyMan'65 I want to get unbanned here from that server, because I want to change my heart. Can they help me, steward? I am very kind person and need to be friendly socials. Admin on this discord server should unban @QwertyMan'65. I want to be an ordinary man with change of heart. 06:30, 15 October 2020 (UTC) I want to be an ordinary man with change of heart. 06:30, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

Can you please lock both Moh278USA and his sockpuppet BIG2778US?

If you check the logs of his global accounts you can see that Moh278USA kept making up lies about another user trying to put a forbidden show on Terrible TV Shows Wiki and presenting those lies as facts. He even used multiple IP addresses in order to evade his bans, as well as another entirely new account, BIG2778US, and never stops spamming apologies, let alone finding ways to evade his bans. Trashanimal (talk) 15:27, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

Requesting bureaucrat rights removal of DuchessTheSponge

Hello, per his statement of disinterest in continuing to participate as an admin/bureaucrat on the fanfiction.miraheze wiki; after I adopted it due to inactivity; could you please remove DuchessTheSponge's bureaucrat rights there, thank you. Freighttrain (talk) 17:10, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

@Freighttrain: I am monitoring this request, and will relist it as required, to prevent it from being archived. A steward should get to it eventually. As a procedural matter, the steward will likely remove the bureaucrat flag on Meta with Special:UserRights/DuchessTheSponge@fanfictionwiki. It won't show in your wiki's user rights log, but will show on Meta's user rights log. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 17:25, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

Requesting CheckUser - Possible compromised account

this and especially this do not seem like anything this user would do. My concerns were initially raised because this user has a history of good-faith edits on our site. After checking their Global Information page, I've seen the current drama involving them, but it seems odd to go from being profusely apologetic on 2-3 different wikis literally ten minutes before the edits in question were made to doing that. Also, note the swearing in the second edit summary. I have never seen this user swear, even when they did insult someone. Add to that the fact we had a troll get banned for exactly the same spam about a month ago. If these two edits were the cause of their global lock, I would suggest a CheckUser be performed to verify that it was them who posted those last two edits on the CLG Wiki. Hb1290 (talk) 01:32, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

@Hb1290: I appreciate your concern for the welfare of the above-captioned user and their account and, while I agree that it is very atypical for this user to curse, it is not reasonable, considering the user had just been blocked by a Global Sysop in accordance with the Code of Conduct, as the user may been reacting to the tense situation in a very irrational, emotional, and atypical way. Nevertheless, if the user's account was compromised, it would still be necessary, for the purposes of account security, to lock the account. The user in question can contact cvt at miraheze.org or stewards at miraheze.org to appeal their global lock and discuss the circumstances that gave rise to both their behaviour and the lock. As the Code of Conduct was invoked, they also have Code of Conduct Commission as a final avenue of appeal, too. So, anyway, I'm sure stewards, together with the local actioning Global Sysop @Zppix:, are capable of handling this case. Dmehus (talk) 02:15, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Hmmmm, something's fishy here. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 02:22, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
