  • ...a page requiring the bigdelete user right (more than 1,000 revisions) be deleted on your wiki
  • ...a Dormancy Policy exemption for your wiki

or report...

  • ...a Username Policy violation (whether in good-faith or bad faith)

Interwiki link requests on my wikis.

Hi, I'd like to request several interwiki links on my wikis.

  1. for Usopedia
  2. for Akancyclopedia
    1. nusp -$1 (The new Usopedia)
    2. pio -$1 (Piowiki)
  3. for Piowiki
    1. akan -$1 (Akancyclopedia)
    2. nusp -$1 (The new Usopedia)

I will leave it to you whether any of these should be global interwiki links, but for now, I'd like to request it locally (global interwiki links are also fine, as long as they works on my wikis). Thanks for reading.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 19:11, 13 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

I happened to find that this request made on phab after I posted this request was dealt sooner than the request I made on Stewards' noticeboard. When I requested for interwiki links for the first time, it also took more than two weeks and was once automatically archived, though the staff told me to post my requests here. I think requests of a same kind should be handled in a first come, first served manner, even if there are several channels available, and I'm a bit unhappy about it. So can you tell me what's going on?--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 04:32, 24 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, terribly sorry for the delay, I started reviewing the request over three days ago (which is still later than I would have liked), and have had minimal time to set to work on this. I'll be getting it done later today. -- Void Whispers 16:00, 25 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Since redirects to I don't think it needs adding. Otherwise, Yes check.svg Done -- Void Whispers 16:39, 25 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
You're right about The situation has changed since I made the request (the Miraheze version was a beta then, but is now official), which is why the old URL is now a redirect. And because of this, I'd like to make interwiki prefix "usp" on akancyclopedia and piowiki updated to the new URL ( Thanks again for your help.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 05:00, 26 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Should I remove the nusp interwiki link, or just leave it? -- Void Whispers 17:48, 26 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks. Please just remain nusp as it is.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 18:29, 26 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Globally blocking/locking an LTA appeared on Usopedia

Hi, I'd like to request for a global block/lock on IPs and users that are for vandalism only, and repeating copyright infringements.

The IPs are all mobile (which can change easily), and I may suggest a range block. Thanks.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 09:30, 19 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

@開拓者: THese IPs and user accounts that you mention have not vandalised any other wikis, only one. Therefore, I don't see a need to take any global action at this time (as that's what local blocks are for). You are free to range block them on your wiki locally, if you think that will stop the issue. Reception123 (talk) (C) 10:48, 19 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
OK, then I'd like to request for checkuser on the three accounts above (I know you can lock them for abusing multiple accounts) and an additional account (Special:CentralAuth/チクタク時計) that appeared after I created this topic. I should also tell you that these user names indicate that they are the accounts of an known LTA in Japanese wikis (such as Wikipedia, and Uncyclopedia, etc.).--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 14:58, 19 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Reception asked for a CU and I declined it. CU isn’t returning a lot of useful information and IP ranged based on the past results are regular broadband connections (and IPv6 too) so there’s not a lot CU is useful for. If you know they’re an LTA and they’re linked, that’s pretty much all I’d conclude from a CU. John (talk) 15:56, 19 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
I see. Thanks for your response.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 16:01, 19 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Now that this LTA has also appeared on the forked Japanese Uncyclopedia, it's a cross wiki issue, and I'd like to ask for a Steward to take global resoponse again.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 07:32, 30 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Can I have a link to the contributions on affected wikis? -- Void Whispers 18:04, 30 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Here you go.
Note that this guy also appeared on meta (as probably you already know).

Speaking of the Dormancy Policy, I would like to make my Wiki immune to that

Hello, I said in my wiki request that my wiki [1] is meant to document the laws of the Crazybloxian Empire. Speaking of the Dormancy Policy, I would like to make it immune to deletion for the following reason:

Used to display info that can take multiple months to edit, write, check, and process

Thank you very much , said Fair002 in a statement. (talk) 14:21, 21 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

E-hem!!!! ARENT THESE STEWARDS PAYING ATTENTION? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fair0002 (talkcontribs)

Sorry for no response. It is unclear from what you are saying that you need an exemption since it says "edit, write, check, and proces [sic]" meaning that you will be actively working on it. A dormancy exemption can be granted in the case that you will not be working on the wiki for long periods of times. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:11, 25 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

I meant to say I want it immune because I dictated in my wiki request that it would display Crazybloxian Empire laws in full-text. Full-text laws take a lot of time to write. I meant the reason for making it immune is because the only edits I will make on it take several months to process. Full-text laws are SUPER-LONG. They take several pages. So can you please make it immune to the Dormancy Policy? Thank you!

Yes check.svg Done -- Void Whispers 17:53, 26 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Request to global block 구루트

Contributions on 루비위키 (

They uploaded 파일:D.gif (currently deleted), an inappropriate picture, inserted it to 틀:333 (currently reverted and deleted revision), and put {{333}} in many pages. This is a violation of Terms of Use, since it prohibits posting illegal contents like that.

Therefore, I request to global block 구루트 | T | C | CentralAuth - PlavorSeol | T | C 06:28, 28 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Vandalism on multiple (two) wikis, therefore Yes check.svg Done. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:29, 28 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Request to global block 모스망가

Could you global block 모스망가 | T | C | CentralAuth who vandalized a lot by moving many pages in 루비위키? It seems they created account for vandalism-only purpose. - PlavorSeol | T | C 16:56, 31 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Looks like a vandalism-only account. Locked. Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:18, 31 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]


Ysmreg (talk) 13:45, 3 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Uh, you really should write in English if you can (because they don't understand Japanese). Here's a translation:
"Since User:kurie is now locked globally, I'd like you to remove the user's bureaucrat permission on my wiki. Thanks."

Mass-protect my wiki?

Hi can someone semi-protect all pages of my wiki? Thx. , said Fair002 in a statement. | Proxy IPs for blocking 03:25, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

You can protect pages using the AbuseFilter. I've posted a sample on your wiki, so if you like it, please enable it.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 05:35, 4 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]

CheckUser request

Would you like to check if Admlnistrator | T | C | CentralAuth | CheckUser is a sock puppet of 모스망가 | T | C | CentralAuth | CheckUser? They vandalized on 루비위키 by moving pages as 모스망가 did. - PlavorSeol | T | C 14:50, 5 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, I have a list of proxy IPs you can block to enforce Miraheze no proxies policy. Linked in my sig , said Fair002 in a statement. | Proxy IPs for blocking 03:53, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

I could on publictestwiki and on my own Wiki but there are thousands over here on the English Wikipedia which a bot is constantly blocking so the list can never end. Pkbwcgs (talk) 08:09, 8 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Requesting non-deletion of OpenHatch wiki

Hi Stewards!

I've been importing the OpenHatch wiki to Miraheze, for the main purpose of keeping it online as an archive as the non-profit OpenHatch has wound down operations. You can read more about our history growing open source here:

I'd love to keep our wiki online for posterity, so that people who are trying to run similar organizations in the future can use our information as a resource. The only edits I foresee in the future are related to updating historical information. The wiki is likely to go dormant over the next few monnths, but my preference is to keep it online even if it does go dormant.

I'm in the #miraheze channel on Freenode, and intend to be responsive to questions from Miraheze staff. Let me know what you think!
