RandomUser34[edit | edit source]

I just want to inform you that RandomUser34 is a constant liar and likes to make things up so don't trust him. If he mentions anything about me, just revert his edit, or just block him indefinitely. He is NOT stopping me from enjoying my time here and with my own wiki. He likes to ruin peoples' lives and make people miserable. He is an immature schoolboy and needs to stop harassing me, otherwise, this may end up with him arrested as I will ring the police. Please block his account indefinitely and any of his other fake accounts? Thanks! He is not making my life a living hell. I don't want him to continue harassing or intimidating me. I can't even sleep at night because of him. --8ight (talk) 22:27, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

If he or you continues interacting with each other, blocks will be enforced. @RandomUser34: Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 22:32, 14 January 2020 (UTC)
@Zppix: Don't worry! I will totally ignore him. Please just protect me from him. I don't want him to harrass me anywhere else. --8ight (talk) 01:38, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
@8ight: Please email conduct[at] and they will handle it. In the meantime, we’re watching. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     offline) 03:51, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

Please help to fix Recent changes page on template wiki[edit | edit source]

Somehow templatewiki has a navbar defacing Recent changes and maybe other pages. I can't figure out how to remove it. Please could a steward fix this. --Rob Kam (talk) 15:28, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

@Rob Kam: I can't seem to reproduce this issue. Could you please either provide a screenshot or tell us what browser (and version) you are using? Also for future reference please note that Stewards do not deal with such technical issues so Community noticeboard would be a better place for this type of request in the future. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:48, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. Okay, next time I will ask at Community noticeboard. Here'a a capture

It's some setting @Ahmsaqib: changed. At the time I asked him to undo it but I don't think he knew how. --Rob Kam (talk) 23:21, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
@Rob Kam: Yes. It was me. But problem is, first time when I edited this page, there was no interface admin program on any wiki. But NOW (and obviously when i tried to edit second time) this is here. So that, nobody can't be able to change special pages (like Mediawiki or css) without Interface Admin, Bureaucrat or Steward right. If you want to change those pages later, you should request for interface adminship. Thanks! আ হ ম সাকিব (T) (C) 23:43, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation @Ahmsaqib:. So that one of the stewards can fix it for us; what exactly in Mediawiki, css or js needs changing to undo the navbar from appearing on Special:RecentChanges please? --Rob Kam (talk) 08:05, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
@Reception123: Can I just cut and paste this over to Community noticeboard, or is there some protocol to follow? It will get seen better over there. --21:21, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

"Exception" error[edit | edit source]

Hello, and thank you again for your beautiful work! My wiki is working well, but I have a problem when a new user has to set a new password at first access. The password input works, but after that I see a page which says (italian version):

Errore interno [6ed00020e037182f9468e092] 2020-01-16 10:55:53: Errore irreversibile di tipo "Exception"

Is it possible to fix it? (the best thing should be redirecting the user to a news page, like "Your account is ready, welcome and begin navigatioN"...

thank you Michele

As it seems to be a technical issue, please file a ticket on phabricator.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 05:09, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

I’m having an issue with the style of the infoboxes on mobile[edit | edit source]

Hi there, so I’ve recently started work on a new wiki and I want to make the theme for mobile users look exactly like Wikipedia. I’ve tried to implement infoboxes from Wikipedia, however the Infobox theme on my wiki for mobile users is substantially different compared to Wikipedia. Is there any possible way to correct this? Thanks. (my wiki) (Wikipedia)

You can simply import infoboxes from Wikipedia following this guide. I think it will work out.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 05:13, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
I followed that guide, however none of my infoboxes on mobile resemble exactly to the Wikipedia ones. Can I have some further assistance please? Thank you. RuffianLewis (talk) 09:14, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
Perhaps w:MediaWiki:Mobile.css might be one of the reasons, because it has some customized css regarding infoboxes. You might want to ask Void personally, as he seems to be familiar with this topic.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 09:51, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

Help...again[edit | edit source]

My rename process from WageUglyDollandMarlaPlaymobil12 to Just Wage got stuck again. Can you fix this? WageALT (talk) 04:12, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

I don't understand why my request for a wiki was denied.[edit | edit source]

I requested a wiki, and I got a notice. I can't read the whole notice because it's cut off and when I try to visit the location of the notice it says there is "no special page". It says it was denied because "Forking the existing wiki (for possible block evasion)." However, I never got blocked on such a wiki and that wiki does not exist, to my knowledge. Here's proof:

I may have confused whoever handled my request, so I will clarify. My friends wanted me to write an article about a very bad user on this wiki, but I can't because it's about bad fandoms, not bad users. I was never blocked on a Miraheze wiki and I just want to write an article for my friends that I can't do unless I get the wiki I requested. So, may I please get it eventually?

Right now I feel like my request was handled poorly, and please correct me if I am wrong. WickyHoney (talk) 05:46, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

Edit: I found out that by clicking on "Visit request" on my notice directed me to "Special:Special:RequestWikiQueue/10562" instead of "Special:RequestWikiQueue/10562". I have now edited the request to clarify some things. WickyHoney (talk) 05:58, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

How restrict access for all users to talk namespaces[edit | edit source]


We would like to keep our copyrights and heavy censorship on content. We do not need extra attention to talk namespaces. How we can disable access or delete or hide all TALK namespaces ?
Thanks in advance.
Helper (talk) 22:38, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

You can fully protect the namespaces through Special:ManageWiki/namespaces to prevent edits. As for viewing talkpages, perhaps you can add a javascript to automatically redirect viewers to the main content.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 06:23, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Please enable the extension “Wikibase: Client” on my wiki[edit | edit source]

Issues with the MediaWikiChat extension[edit | edit source]

I've spotted at least 2 issues with the MediaWikiChat extension. The first problem is that administrators are unable to ban users from using chat by giving them the "blockedfromchat" permission. And bureaucrats are unable to use the (managewiki) permission to allow themselves or other usergroups to assign users the said permission.

The second problem is that the MediaWiki:Smileys page isn't working, as it isn't allowing the emotes to appear via Chat. I would appreciate it if these issues could be addressed. Particularly the first one, which I assume is the easier one of the two. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 05:40, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

@C.Syde65: Hi. It would be preferable if you opened a task on Phabricator as this matter is not for Stewards. Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:04, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

Question[edit | edit source]

The Question is, is it possible for a steward to be impeached, and if the steward is impeached, then the steward loses their power.


@RoboticJeffy: Yes, it is possible for a steward to be removed ("impeached" as you say). The rules for the removal of a Steward can be found here. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:18, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Vandalism by administrator[edit | edit source]

Users Lipomir and Bloodia have committed vandalism and erasure on several pages within the Atlas collaborative wiki, on which they are administrators. This particular wiki is a collaboration between a few groups. Although these deletions initially targeted the moderation team for our group, after moderation action, the users have started deleting all pages by our users on the wiki, and removing the members of our group from the wiki. This was done without warning and without the permission of anyone involved but the aforementioned administrators, in what we consider a severe breach of the Miraheze code of conduct. If there is any way that we can have these deletions restored, the dormant status removed and their admin privileges revoked, that would be greatly appreciated.

One of our users, Gorbatov was an administrator and retained their privileges, so we managed to save through various caches and administrative actions our work, but we would still like, if possible, the deleted content to be restored and the users who committed the erasures to have their administrative privileges on our wiki removed.

Thank you very much, Valdiu
