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

On the Stewards' noticeboard, you can request...

  • ...a Steward or Global Sysop 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
  • ...additional permissions on your wiki(s) that can only be granted by a Steward, such as local interwiki administrator following a successful election
  • ...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)
  • ...a user suspected of abusing multiple accounts per the User accounts policy. You must link to specific revisions from both the suspected master and illegitimate alternate account(s)
  • ...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 request...

Hi! I'd like Wikipedia2 created, please. If you wanna come to my new wiki and join there and not here. You're still an admin. Louise3 (talk) 13:45, 31 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Probably your request is declined. Don’t even think about asking for it in a wiki request, Wikipedia is a trademark of the Wikimedia Foundation. Probably X mark.svg Not done. PERIOD. , said Fair002 in a statement. | Proxy IPs for blocking 01:58, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

I have already mentioned this, there is no need to repeat it. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:04, 13 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

By the way, if you wanna create an encyclopaedia, choose another name or just create an account on an existing encyclopedia (e.g Wikipedia)

Abuse Log false positive?

Apparently, it says in the abuse log that User:InternetArchiveBot has triggered the abuse filter. Is it a false positive or is it real? It is a bot. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:21, 31 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Technically yes, but also the filter is doing exactly what it should be doing. That being said, I'll see about adding a few exemptions to the filter. -- Void Whispers 19:26, 31 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Okay. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:27, 31 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Yes. Say hello to Miraheze's newest bot. It will primarily operate on the other wikis as provided they approve it.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 21:33, 31 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Nice. Pkbwcgs (talk) 07:01, 1 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Interesting, this looks like it might be very useful. How do I run it on sdiywiki? At the IABot Management Interface, when I'm logged in it just lists various Wikipedias in the menu on the right hand side. -- Rob Kam (talk) 21:51, 1 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Requested at T3621 -- Rob Kam (talk) 19:58, 20 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
This same bot has hit a vandalism on All the Tropes wiki. See Special:AbuseLog. Is it a false positive? Pkbwcgs (talk) 21:00, 19 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah, but that's why that filter doesn't actually stop edits. -- Void Whispers 23:17, 19 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]


こんにちは。日本語で失礼します。ローカルウィキの問題になります。まず、先日もお話しておりますが(ここでの履歴をご確認ください)現在アクティブなビューロクラットがおらず、権限操作が出来ない状態です。それで、参加からあまり活動がなく、管理者就任からは権限行使がない状態で活動停止をしていたArchami氏(グローバルアカウント情報)という管理者がおります。当該管理者は、その後、完全引退宣言をされたので、権限返上の意思について確認したところ、回答のないまま活動が途絶えてました。詳細は本人のトークページ解任提案をご覧いただきたいのですが、権限除去について誰からも反論・異議申し立てはなく一定期間が過ぎております。この件に関してお願いに参りましたが、ご判断のほうよろしくお願いいたします。--賢者タイム (talk) 01:17, 10 September 2018 (UTC) I withdraw this request. 賢者タイム (talk) 01:09, 21 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Need bureaucrat/admin rights on new wiki

Hi, I requested a new wiki ( Special:RequestWikiQueue/5920) and it was created, but I didn't receive bureaucrat/admin rights. Please grant these to me so I can begin setting things up. Thanks. Flake (talk) 05:10, 13 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, i will recreate the wiki as we rolled out some fixes yesterday after the wiki was created. Paladox (talk) 12:27, 13 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Wiki recreated, please can you retry? Paladox (talk) 12:30, 13 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Images imported on are attributed to "Maintenance script"

[1] I know, this happens because of how the upload script works, but not only it messes the edit count of users, it also infringes the CC-BY-SA license they're under since nobody can see who created them. Wouldn't it better to first upload the pages in the "File" namespace (which include histories) and then upload the actual file? Or can anything else be done to fix this and return proper histories to files? Wedhro (talk) 06:41, 14 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

bureaucrat authority for User:ゆきひかり

Hello. Local wiki does not have an active bureaucrat. Last time, User:ゆきひかり was given administrator authority from Meta. Currently, he/she was also confident in bureaucrat. Therefore please promote User:ゆきひかり. Thank you. 賢者タイム (talk) 02:55, 21 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done -- Void Whispers 19:23, 21 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Can any stewards add me back the admin right on my private wiki? I had mis-click away my admin right on my private wiki when I created the "Founder" flag on there, thank you. SA 13 Bro (talk) 05:28, 21 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done -- Void Whispers 19:24, 21 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Request for Administration right on Template Wiki

Interface Pages (Such as Mediawiki, Gadget etc.)

There is a lot collection of Template. That's really great job. but there is no good collection of Interface Pages. (Gadget Also.) if you are busy, you can get me Administrative right, I'll try to improve it.
Note: I'm with Miraheze for three years, And I like Miraheze's Voluntarily manner. And I inspired to help miraheze like they help me. Ahmsaqib (talkcontribsemail) 09:20, 21 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

@MacFan4000: and other stewards, if okay with this?
Symbol support vote.svg Support to maybe get more done on/with the wiki -- Rob Kam (talk) 08:17, 22 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
I’m okay with this. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 10:57, 22 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

@Reception123, Void, Paladox, and John: Waiting for your decision.

TALK CONTRIBUTION 00:20, 24 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
This is not really an issue that requires steward involvement. Your request is best suited to the local noticeboard, as it should be handled by local administrators/bureaucrats. And yes, I know that there is quite a bit of overlap between global staff and templatewiki staff, but myself and John are not really that involved in that wiki. -- Void Whispers 00:40, 24 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Void: Reception123 or Paladox, Are they involved?
আ হ ম সাকিব
TALK CONTRIBUTION 00:47, 24 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Ahmsaqib: I would not say I am very involved. I think it would be nice if you could mention what reasons you have for needing the administrator right, and as it's mentioned above, to request this at a local level. Reception123 (talk) (C) 19:00, 25 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@Reception123: Sorry! I didn't know that. But, Now it's Yes check.svg Done by local level bureaucrat MacFan4000 (though he's also global admin). Thanks for your supporting. আ হ ম সাকিব (T) (C) 22:51, 25 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Proposal to change MediaWiki:Blockedtext slightly

I would like to make the block notice stand out more just like on Wikipedia. At the moment, I feel that the blockedtext doesn't stand out enough. I am proposing something like this:

Your username or IP address has been blocked from editing.

The block was made by $1. The reason given is $2.

  • Start of block: $8
  • Expiration of block: $6
  • Intended blockee: $7

You can contact $1 or another administrator to discuss the block. You cannot use the "email this user" feature unless a valid email address is specified in your account preferences and you have not been blocked from using it. Your current IP address is $3, and the block ID is #$5. Please include all above details in any queries you make.

I would like to know what you think. I am testing this on my own Wiki and looking into the blockedtext. If you think this can still be improved, please let me know. Thanks. Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:55, 23 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

It didn't work as all the tabs and the website interface came into the block notice. Can you please suggest something. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:06, 23 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
I use a near exact copy of Wikipedia’s blockedtext, except the actual text has been modified for my wiki, and the box about the notice being unclear underneath the main message has been removed. My version is available here and it works just fine for me (although I should also note that I’ve directly imported Wikipedia’s Common.css onto my wiki, which may be required in order for things like this to work properly). Amanda Catherine (talk) 00:59, 24 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
I should also note that I don’t think there is a way to globally control MediaWiki interface messages - I think it’s up to local admins to decide what they want for their individual wikis. Amanda Catherine (talk) 01:01, 24 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
What Amanda says is not correct, as we have an extension (MirahezeMagic) which deals with this exact thing. If you would like it to be changed, maybe propose another version, and see what the other users think? Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:58, 25 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Vandalism-only account

MIMINYAMI666IHATESPLATOON is a vandalism-only account and it needs a global lock as soon as possible. Pkbwcgs (talk) 15:46, 25 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

@Pkbwcgs: Done by MacFan4000. Thanks for letting us know. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:56, 25 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
