Wiki's logo (File:Wiki.png) won't update

I always have a hard time adding a new version of the nonciclopedia's logo; even if the upload is successful and the new version appears in the history, the file stays on the previous version for days or forever. Purging the page won't help. Attempting to reupload the file fails, I'm told that version already exist, and checking the options to ignore system errors and such fails too. We often change logo for special occasions like holidays and such so we can wait a few hours for the servers to catch up but no longer than that.--Wedhro (talk) 09:53, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Oops, here's the logo: https://nonciclopedia.org/wiki/File:Wiki.png --Wedhro (talk) 09:54, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
@Wedhro: What does the new logo look like? To resolve the issue quickly, you can upload the new logo separately using Special:Upload and then change the logo in Special:ManageWikiSettings. Also, please note that for technical issues you can use Community Noticeboard instead of SN. Reception123 (talk) (C) 10:32, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Oops, next time. If you check the history you'll see there's a few differences between the 21 dic 2018 and 2 gen 2019 versions (the title doesn't overlap with the logo and the wiki-sphere is slightly different) and you can see those differences in the history thumbnails, but if you click on this one you're taken to the previous version of the file. Also, in Special:ManageWikiSettings I can't link to the newest version for the same reason: the link to the new version is https://static.miraheze.org/nonciclopediawiki/b/bc/Wiki.png, exactly the same as the link I previously set, and it leads to the old version. --Wedhro (talk) 10:41, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Namespace Error

On my wiki xed.miraheze.org, I accidentally didn't notice that I had a few pages already created with the prefix English: before I created the namespace English. Those pages seem to be inaccessible now. I am only looking to delete them. Any advice? How can I delete the namespaces I created? I regret my decision! I will go delete the content out of the namespaces ... --Aquatiki (talk) 13:22, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi, the ability to delete namespaces hasn’t been added yet, but if you would like, we can manually remove them from the database. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 14:07, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, I screwed up. Can you delete the English and Greek namespaces, and their Talk namespaces? --Aquatiki (talk) 23:35, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Please do delete the namespaces. They are empty, but I screwed up and their are articles in the Main namespace that are inaccessible. here --Aquatiki (talk) 03:13, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

ReplaceText Permissions

I added the extension ReplaceText, and when I go to its special page, I get the error You are not allowed to execute the action you have requested. I am the administrator and bureaucrat, and I checked my user rights, which seem to include everything except bot. What am I doing wrong? --Aquatiki (talk) 23:38, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Try disabling it and enabling it. If that doesn't work, use Special:ManageWikiPermissions to add replacetext to the sysop usergroup and let us know. -- Void Whispers 23:46, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Special:ManageWikiPermissions was the answer. Thanks! --Aquatiki (talk) 00:27, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Internal error after submitting ManageWiki forms

Hi. I seem to have problems after I click "Submit" on ManageWiki forms and I get this text:

MediaWiki internal error.

Original exception: [60fdc0a8730720f528b9af56] 2019-01-06 12:17:07: Fatal exception of type "Wikimedia\Rdbms\DBQueryError"

Exception caught inside exception handler.

Set $wgShowExceptionDetails = true; and $wgShowDBErrorBacktrace = true; at the bottom of LocalSettings.php to show detailed debugging information.

What is causing this error? Psl631 (Let's Chat!) 12:19, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Is this specific to any one ManageWiki form? Or does it affect all of them? -- Void Whispers 18:04, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Hi, we have now fixed the error. It was due to a missing table in the database (for a extension) Paladox (talk) 18:05, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Visual Editor for custom namespace

On https://shroudedpath.miraheze.org/wiki/ I've created a custom namespace (STGM). It seems like the visual editor extension needs to be informed of the namespace for it to work, which I can't do.

Also I had to add the namespace twice because it disappeared. It might have to do with me accidentally using the same name for the main and talk namespace. It would probably be best to automatically create a name for the talk namespace, since the default seems to be "[main namespace name] talk" anyway. I hope the namespace has now been created correctly.

Thanks in advance

Error in Special:ManageWikiNamespaces on my Uncyclopedia

Hi! I seem to have an error on the Special:ManageWikiNamespaces special page on my Uncyclopedia wiki; the drop-down list on choosing namespaces seem to be empty.

Checkuser request for suspected LTA accounts on Usopedia

Hi, I'd like to ask for a checkuser on suspected LTA accounts created on Usopedia. They are:

They all have the suffix 「たん」 in common (which is some sort of trend following my sub account 開拓たん), had been created in a short period, and the second account has been indefinitely blocked due to abusive user name. Thanks in advance.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 11:35, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

X mark.png Not Done Using multiple accounts is allowed per the User_accounts_policy. Only in the case of misuse a CheckUser could be justified. Southparkfan (talk) 01:49, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
It is allowed, but the accounts of an LTA is NOT (because it's a block/lock evasion). I should also note that having multiple accounts without reasons on our wiki is against our local policy (even if it's not against the global policy). We have been suffering from a Japanese cross-wiki LTA for a long time, and I also should add that at least one of them is probably that of the LTA (based on the logging on the abuselog).--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 02:36, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
In that case, I'm going to take a look at it. -- Void Whispers 20:15, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
The above accounts are all technically related to each other. -- Void Whispers 20:32, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
All right, I'll lock the accounts except for かにふとん for abusing multiple accounts. For かにふとん, I need to question the user before dealing with it, and thus let me handle it for now. Thanks.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 04:22, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Quacking sock of Lousie3 - just see their contributions here on Meta and the wiki that they created. Please globally lock. Thanks. Amanda Catherine (talk) 12:30, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi, why are you so sure about this user being a sockpuppet of Louise3?--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 12:38, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
The behavior here matches the Louise3 socks almost exactly - mass canvassing here on Meta for users to contribute to their wiki, unilaterally giving out admin and bureaucrat rights to every user who creates a local account on their wiki, having their wiki more-or-less copy Wikipedia (possibly in violation of copyright policy), etc. Amanda Catherine (talk) 12:44, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
You may be right, but I'm not sure enough, and, at least, we can't say the user is a vandal-only account so far (like LTA:KOSHIN or whatsoever). Please wait for a steward to come and review your comment. Also, please do not revert edits on talk pages (unless it's an obvious vandal or/and it's your own talk page). Thank you.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 12:58, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
I have restored their access to their wiki. @Amanda Catherine: as a staff member, I would like to ask you to not ban founders from their wikis even if you have admin/bureaucrat on the wiki. If an account is a sock puppet, it will be determined by stewards sabe edit reversions and wiki removals will be handeled by steward. This is their responsibility and not yours. We are happy however for you to tell us if you think an account is a sock puppet. Thanks for your understanding. I will let the stewards handle the rest of this. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 15:37, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
CU confirmed. But yeah let stewards handle it. -- Void Whispers 16:53, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
For some clarity; "as a staff member, I would like to ask you to not ban founders from their wikis", wikis don't have founders, and as a staff member, you don't have the authority to overrule the actions of a community member. By the user giving Amanda crat, Amanda has the same responsibility for the wiki as the original user and the removal of bureaucrat from the user is 100% a valid action in a sense where policies lack. Just like you're reinstating is 100% valid as an action. John (talk) 19:23, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
+1 regarding what John said. Just to be clear, the user was such an obvious sock of Louise3 that I instantly recognized having dealt with them extensively before, and therefore I took the actions I did because IMHO the user really had no right to even have that wiki created. Although, on a semi-related note, I see the user has blocked me indefinitely and I’d be appreciative if this could be removed so that I don’t have an invalid block in my CA. Amanda Catherine (talk) 22:46, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Dormancy exemption

I would like to request a Dormancy Policy exemption for the Constructed Worlds (Altverse) Wiki because it is viewed and designed for a significant readership base and does not require continual editing as it already contains a fairly large library of articles and content. The community occasionally experiences decreased editing activity, but not necessarily viewing activity, so we would like an exemption in the unlikely but possible chance that no significant edits are made within the timeframe allowed before a wiki is labeled "dormant", because the wiki contains significant amounts of content.

CSS won't let me edit

Greetings, I really need your help. I was working on my common CSS of PlayStation All-Stars Database, but it won't let me edit as it said quote:

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:

You do not have permission to edit this CSS page because it may affect all visitors.

Permissions for editing of sitewide CSS/JS/JSON files were recently separated from the editinterface right. If you do not understand why you are getting this error, see mw:MediaWiki_1.32/interface-admin.

I've tried everything to update my administration, but it won't let me edit. Would you help me to fix and analysis this?

-Official-PSASD (talk) 08:32, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

As you are a bureaucrat there, you can go to Special:ManageWikiPermissions, and allow admin (or whatever group you want) the permissions: editsitecss, editsitejson, editsitejs. That will restore your permissions to edit css, js, and json on MediaWiki namespace.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 10:39, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
Well, I did added the permission but sadly it didn't allowed me to add it where in the user rights where the check box is grey (it shown in "Groups you cannot change"), I've tried again but it won't let me create CSS. -Official-PSASD (talk) 19:52, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
You should either allow these permissions to sysop, or you should make sure that bureaucrats can add the groups you created. -- Void Whispers 19:58, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Merge users on nonciclopedia.org (3)

It's been almost e 2 weeks since I first asked to #Merge_users_on_nonciclopedia.org so people want to know if issues have been fixed. User Treffo's sockpuppets seems they're not merged yet, and user Revenant Lord says he can't login, and asking for a password had no effect, he received no email. Can you please give a way to get back accounts that works?--Wedhro (talk) 09:46, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi, sorry for the delay on working on this, I've not been the most available recently, but I should be available to merge Treffo tomorrow. Is there a temporary account for the user yet? For Revenant Lord, we can create a new account and redo the merge, properly this time! -- Void Whispers 00:38, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Special:CentralAuth/Treffo is both the temporary account and the final username that should inherit the other 10 accounts. I told Revenant Lord to create a new temp account, I'll let you know when it's done.--Wedhro (talk) 10:23, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
@Void: Special:CentralAuth/Revenant Lord temporaneo 2 was just created and the user confirmed he logged in once. This account should inherit Special:CentralAuth/Revenant Lord contributions and user name. Also, I have a question: since some users (including myself) noticed how some personal data such as the join date, edit count etc. are not correct, would you fix them manually if a user asks for it?--Wedhro (talk) 13:56, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Some of the information can be reset, but the user registration date probably cannot. Can you have Revenant Lord visit nonciclopediawiki so that the account is attached there? We can't do a user merge if the accounts do not exist on exactly the same wikis. I'll get started on Treffo now. -- Void Whispers 18:36, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Treffo is done. -- Void Whispers 19:51, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. I can confirm Revenant Lord's temp account has just visited nonciclopedia.org.
"Some of the information can be reset, but the user registration date probably cannot." - Would you please give it a try so I can get a yes or no answer? You can do it on my own account, the original registration date is september 2, 2007 (you can check it here).--Wedhro (talk) 20:36, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Revenant Lord is done. What I mean by "probably cannot" is that the information may not exist on Miraheze to be connected to the account (without doing database modifications). To be honest, I don't know, and I don't have access to the tools to find out. -- Void Whispers 23:35, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
it should be able to be done, your timestamp is "20180521223923". Paladox (talk) 00:40, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
Database modifications is what I was actually asking for. It would be intended only for the few users who ask for it and we would link to the original data on our Fandom accounts as proof in case that matters. --Wedhro (talk) 05:03, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Need help with my wiki - the checkboxes in the gadgets section is disabled

Hi. I asking if someone can help me because in my wiki here, on the preferences page, all checkboxes in the gadgets section are disabled, what have caused so all checkboxes is disabled? How make I them checkable/uncheckable again, what have caused this? Psl631 (Let's Chat!) 17:50, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Using Special:ManageWikiPermissions, remove the ability to edit from anon users (the * group), and assign the right to the user group. If you only want to protect the main namespace (where all your articles are), you can use Special:ManageWikiNamespaces to require that the <Main> namespace needs the userright user to be edited. -- Void Whispers 00:35, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

Merge users on nonciclopedia.org (4)

Special:CentralAuth/Caesar_temporaneo needs to inherit Special:CentralAuth/Cesar91's contributions (etc.), and then be renamed "Caesar".--Wedhro (talk) 22:03, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

The username Caesar is already in use, so the user will have to pick a different name. I could merge the accounts together, and then set the final username as Cesar91 for now, and the user could request a rename using Special:GlobalRenameRequest. -- Void Whispers 18:13, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
It's just a fake user created by Cesar91 to redirect to his current username because Wikia wouldn't allow user renames, see https://nonciclopedia.org/w/index.php?title=Utente:Caesar&action=history - Since it doesn't have a single edit in 5 years you can you delete/block that username so it becomes available again?--Wedhro (talk) 21:42, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
That is not why this blocks the situation, as the Caesar account on Miraheze was created from Meta before we migrated the user accounts from nonciclopedia. -- Void Whispers 22:25, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
Ok, but there's no actual person behind that username. If you search on Wikia (https://nonciclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Speciale:Utenti) you won't even find the user. It looks like a mistake when uploading the dump, it would be absurd if that prevented people from taking that username. I ask that also because many users resorted to that workaround because of Wikia's policies so it might happen again. There's some technical difficulty that prevents you from deleting an account created by mistake?--Wedhro (talk) 22:32, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
The account does not look to have been created by mistake. The account looks to have been created by another user on Mirhaze. -- Void Whispers 23:10, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
So a global rename, as you suggested above, is actually impossible?--Wedhro (talk) 23:17, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Privacy of "Private" Wiki, appearance of user I didn't add

I've been working on a wiki hosted on Miraheze for my company to develop training resources, but we're concerned about public access & trade secrets. I read on your FAQ that the main page is always public. I'm wondering how easy it would be for someone to create a user to become a "member" and gain access to the wiki without us noticing it.

In particular, I'm wondering about a user called "GDPRAccount" which was created on January 25th on our Wiki, communitybuilding.miraheze.org.

I'm just learning how to use this wiki stuff, so I don't have much technical knowledge yet.

If we need to switch to some kind of commercial wiki management service, I suppose we can do that. But I like the idea of supporting Miraheze -- it's a wonderful free resource -- if it can satisfy our need for privacy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by John Neil (talkcontribs) 14:49, 30 January 2019‎ (UTC)

Hi, due to the nature of our account system on Miraheze, anyone can create an account on your wiki. However, they can only read your wiki if they have been added to the Member group by an administrator of your wiki. The account "GDPRAccount" is used by staff for the sole purpose of deleting other user's information upon their request. It should never be logged into, but has no elevated access anyway. -- Void Whispers 17:28, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
If you wish to even disallow account creations, you could create a local abuse filter for it on Special:AbuseFilter. However, this won't be necessary because of what Void said above; no one can see the contents (apart from the main page) unless you (or any other local admins) permit it.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 08:15, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

Lock "Dr brain kaur"

Please lock Dr brain kaur's account. They are a cross wiki-farm troll that first edited The Sims Wiki only to vandalize, and declared that they were going to create a "fork" of the wiki maliciously on ShoutWiki.

Has this issue been resolved? It looks like you have access to the account. (Sorry for not responding sooner). -- Void Whispers 18:39, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
Access Obtained but it would be good if the two accounts could be merged please.

CheckUser Rights Request

I would like to have checkuser rights because I am licensed in keeping secrets and I will never release Ip addresses to others. If I had these rights I would make miraheze a better platform to host wikis on.

@Examknow: CheckUser can only executive by stewards for combating those LTA cross-wiki to create multiple accounts for engaging an vandalism or spamming activity, not to view other users IP addresses information for curiosity purpose. Why do you need to access the CU tool, does your local wiki "wizwiki.miraheze.org" appearance plenty vandals or spammers? SA 13 Bro (talk) 22:33, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
@SA 12 Bro: No WizWiki has sock puppets under control.
  • The checkuser permission will not be delegated to users outside of the steward body excepting in cases where a user is elected in a process that is as selective as the steward elections. However, the steward body is confident that it can handle CU requests in a timely manner, and such appointments do not need to take place. -- Void Whispers 18:44, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

request checkuser

Please, check the connections between the two administrators of Nonsensopedia: ‎Sir Polskacafe and Mr obornik. I suspect that something can be. ZelDelet (talk) 18:03, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi, can you give more details as to why you believe this check to be necessary? -- Void Whispers 18:20, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

I think these two use their accounts with each other. Both have passwords for both of these accounts. If so, they can cheat the community, they can write two opinions, vote twice, etc. ZelDelet (talk) 20:27, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

@ZelDelet: I don't understand what you mean with the passwords thing. Also, for a CheckUser to be done, usually, it is done after one of the accounts has done something (not before). Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:20, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

Request chekuser in Tanukipedia

In my wikisite ( Tanukipedia ), vandalism was occuered. The accounts are:

  • 妄想代理人15周年記念委員会
  • Paranoia‎

Please check these 2 users.

Given as you have already blocked the accounts, what would be the point of checking them? Do you believe there are other accounts? -- Void Whispers 17:41, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
These accounts' edit resemble NUOC or KOSHIN (known LTA in Usopedia). Please check whether these accounts are NUOC or KOSHIN. --TANUKI (talk) 23:59, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Merge users on nonciclopedia.org (6)

It's me again, user Special:CentralAuth/Zero_Spaccato_temp needs to inherit username, contribs etc. of Special:CentralAuth/Zero_Spaccato.--Wedhro (talk) 21:54, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
