If you are looking to make a report regarding a specific user, in addition to being required to provide a thorough and complete report, you should also know that reports by anonymous or logged out users are not taken very seriously for a couple reasons, namely that:

  1. We cannot ascertain who is making the report; and,
  2. Western liberal democracies enshrine in a citizen's fundamental, constitutionally-enshrined legal rights the right to know and face one's accuser, and Miraheze is no different.

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:

Hello, I am QwertyMan'65. These web link above are among the blocked me forever without time limits. If not believe me, click my link: The Crappy Games wiki is among my one of the favorite miraheze community wiki, Don't shaming me about my mistakes that I'd ever done in the past. I treated @Portrock1566 like a betrayer, Then I would like to get my life as best as I can in the community without any mistakes, Mario is my one of my favorite like. 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. Good regards, QwertyMan'65 I want to be an ordinary man with change of heart. 06:27, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

Ps. I'm a kind person with friendly behavior and getting to obey the rules and laws around the meta miraheze. I want to be an ordinary man with change of heart. 10:00, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

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. I want to be an ordinary man with change of heart. 11:46, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

I want to seek out new friends while being troubling in the past so you should do a job while contributing to your wikis you admin. At some point, you make me lost my talk page edit because of block you committed me. And never act so hard while giving critics to me, after you hesitate to betray me. How much in the wikis, that they are much hierachy plugged up the 11, and we should have anarchy action like no given rules. Please you must unban me in discord server mainline reception wiki because I want apologize my actions that I did in past. QwertyMan'65 (talk) 08:56, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Please Lock General I80[edit | edit source]

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)
The requestor has been boomerang  locked by @Reception123:, following overwhelmingly clear behavioural evidence and even an on-wiki confession, among other evidence. Dmehus (talk) 21:35, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

CheckUser request.[edit | edit source]

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)
 See above thread. Dmehus (talk) 21:37, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Can you please do a CheckUser test on Moh278USA and his suspected sockpuppet BIG2778US?[edit | edit source]

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)

@Reception123: I think you should answer this guy. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 21:27, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
This sounds more like something a Steward should do (CheckUser), unless the evidence is extremely clear. Reception123 (talk) (C) 04:44, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
@Reception123: The evidence that he is sockpuppeting is extremely clear, as he has the same writing style as Moh278USA. - Trashanimal (talk) 15:36, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
@Trashanimal: If he indeed confessed to being a sockpuppet, could you please link me to that? Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:51, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
@Reception123: Sorry to misinform you on that, he didn't confess to sockpuppeting from everything that I saw. So could you instead please do a CheckUser test on the two accounts to make sure that they're the same user? That's the only way to stop him from causing any more harm. And I don't care if it was 2 months ago, the block still matters. - Trashanimal (talk) 16:52, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Requesting bureaucrat rights removal of DuchessTheSponge[edit | edit source]

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)

Account lock request[edit | edit source]

Please can my account, User:Liam, be locked. Thanks. Liam (t) 12:12, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

@Liam: Sure, this can be done, per your self-request, by either a steward or, most likely, @Reception123:. Once it's locked, you can e-mail stewards at or cvt at in the future to request an unlock, should you wish to return to Miraheze and use that user account. Thank you for your contributions.

Lock Tutrlesfanboy3444 for cross-wiki vandalism[edit | edit source]

Just look at his activities. He's a vandal on multiple wikis. I suggest locking the account immediately. Feel free to decide what punishment is best for the user. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 13:05, October 19 2020 (UTC) DarkMatterMan4500 13:05, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

@DarkMatterMan4500: I note that you're still not linking to specific revisions, as required by the notice on this noticeboard. I did previously point you to line 5 of my global.js file to add the diff-permalink to your global.js file to assist with this process. Then it's simply a matter of linking to the wikis in the format of [[mh:subdomain:pagename]]. Nevertheless, I am seeing this user is only blocked on two wikis to which they've contributed, one or both of which you are also a local administrator on. So, I'm not seeing the same immediate need, or need at all, really, as you are seeing. Noting your added reply in your edit summary, a lock is not seen as some form of superior punishment. It's meant mainly to prevent imminent harm to the wiki farm and for very narrow other purposes. I would also strongly caution you against blocking for reason offsite vandalism where the user has made zero contributions as, though I'm sure you've no doubt done it in good-faith or possibly following the lead of other Reception wiki administrators, though the actions are done in such a way as to mimick a Global Sysop action. More problematic, though, blocking a user where they've made zero contributions may be seen as harassment per the Code of Conduct. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 13:27, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: I apologize for that, and you're actually right. And I'm actually not the only one that was doing it too. Granted, the user has vandalized multiple wikis, but what would your suggestion be? Also, here are the revisions on Awful Movies Wiki, for a hint. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 13:33, October 19 2020 (UTC)
Since the user has vandalised three independent wikis and inserted random content into pages on all three, I've decided to lock the account as a vandalism-only account for the cross-wiki vandalism. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:49, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Spam on Nonciclopedia[edit | edit source]

Please intervene as soon as possible. This wiki has been besieged by multiple vandal/spam account for months, each of them having a long non-Latin user name. No admin is regularly active.--Sacro Riglionese Impero (talk) 15:59, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

I've blocked and mass-reverted two of the accounts that I noticed. It would probably be useful if a Steward did a CheckUser since they seem to be related. Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:08, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
@Sacro Riglionese Impero: This has been  done by John and Reception123. Thank you for your report. Dmehus (talk) 16:48, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

A vandalism-only account that needs locking[edit | edit source]

I WANT TO QWERTY PEOPLE is vandalizing on Awful Movies Wiki, and no admin is currently available to block them due to the lack of admins. Please lock their account when one of you sees this. --DeciduousWater534 (talk) 00:59, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Local interwiki administrator request[edit | edit source]

Hi, I request local rights for interwiki admininstration for my wikis Lilypond Wiki · my little garden · Regionalbahn Weinviertel (although I said I would not need them, maybe this rights come in handy for some purposes), thank you very much Lily (Lilypond Wiki · talk and I will listen · my little garden ) 04:45, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

@Lily: Thank you for making your request for local interwiki administrator on each of your above three (3) wikis at community noticeboard. Please note that I have administratively moved it to this noticeboard, where it is now in scope. Requests for local interwiki table changes on wikis continue at community noticeboard, whereas local permissions requests which can only be granted by stewards should occur on stewards' noticeboard. A steward should attend to your request within a few days to a week, but I will make sure this is relisted, to prevent archiving, until it is actioned. As well, I thought I should also note this revision in which you noted that Manuela was your alternate account on one or more of those wiki(s), effectively making you the only local bureaucrat on those wikis. Dmehus (talk) 09:23, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Sorry for the wrong board and thank you for moving it to the right board. Lily (Lilypond Wiki · talk and I will listen · my little garden )

Please see this page. This is my request for local adminship page. But this wiki has one bureaucrat, User:Kjh010206 is locked. Thank you. Gomdoli4696 (talk) 10:51, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

@Gomdoli4696: Thanks for your request. A steward should review your local permissions request in absence of a locally available bureaucrat within the next 1-2 weeks, but I will ensure the request is relisted to prevent archiving. Dmehus (talk) 11:07, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
I see. --Gomdoli4696 (talk) 11:46, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Hello, There is no criteria for voting in this wiki. must follow the meta-wiki's voting criteria? Gomdoli4696 (talk) 13:45, 22 October 2020 (UTC)
@Gomdoli4696: Thank you for the reply. Yes, typically, where there are no local permissions elections rules, a best practice is to follow Meta's and our global permissions elections guidelines in terms of how long the request should remain open (typically 5-7 calendar days at minimum). Nevertheless, you can still define parameters within your election, such as the position(s) to be elected, the number of position(s) to be elected, the required minimum support ratio (if any), and what happens to requests with no votes (i.e., election by acclamation)—i.e., are those treated as successful or unsuccessful? Once that process has concluded, then you would return to this thread and link to your local election for a steward to assess. Dmehus (talk) 13:51, 22 October 2020 (UTC)

How to activate wiki[edit | edit source]

Hello I would like to ask how to activate wiki Few days ago, I got a message below.

This wiki has no edits or logs made within the last 45 days, therefore it is marked as inactive. "If you would like to prevent this wiki from being closed, please start showing signs of activity here. If there are no signs of this wiki being used within the next 15 days, this wiki may be closed per the Dormancy Policy. This wiki will then be eligible for adoption by another user. If not adopted and still inactive 135 days from now, this wiki will become eligible for deletion. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with Miraheze's Dormancy Policy. If there is activity on this wiki you can go to Special:ManageWiki and uncheck "inactive" yourself. If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask at Stewards' noticeboard."

I tried to follow the way how to activate wiki again.

First, I log in and edit few trivial words.

Second, I tried to visit 'Special:ManageWiki' but I can't uncheck 'inactivate' button.

So I am really confused how to solve this problem.

This wiki contain very critical information made by a lot of effort.

Therefore, it should not be deleted.

p.s. I found that warning message is not shown anymore! If the problem is solved already, how could I confirm it? REDACTED 21:12, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

It looks like the wiki is no longer marked as inactive in ManageWiki. Nevertheless, it seems you just need to login. I will revision delete the applicable revisions as a likely logged out user. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 22:30, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

Some troll accounts[edit | edit source]

TREVOR SHOW US YOUR ANGRY FACE SO WE CAN LAUGH LOLOLOL, NO NO NO THE ANGRY PHOTO NOT THE EMOJI LOL, and JUST TAKE A PICTURE OF YOUR ANGRY FACE THEN UPLOAD LOL are all troll accounts that need to be locked. --DeciduousWater534 (talk) 21:48, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

@DeciduousWater534: This is kind of meh. There's no contributions on either wiki. They're not really Username Policy violations, other than likely troll usernames, which we typically don't like to apply in isolation unless it's a demonstrated cross-wiki vandalism only account. I would say just locally block per your wikis' local policies, warn them on their user talk page that they should request a global rename on Meta if they're here to contribute in a constructively, and also advise them of user accounts policy on Meta with respect to creating and using multiple accounts. If they continue to use the account(s) on other wikis, then yes, we'd likely want to lock the accounts. Dmehus (talk) 22:35, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
He just created a fourth account called YEAH SEND ME YOUR BLACK CATS PICTURE. —DeciduousWater534 (talk) 14:37, 22 October 2020 (UTC)
That additional account may well be him or her, yes, but the reality is, these aren't really Username Policy violations. And, unless you can point to on-wiki behavioural evidence from each account which clearly suggests a likelihood of contravening user accounts policy by creating multiple accounts, a CheckUser wouldn't likely be appropriate, to be perfectly honest. It's probably best just to locally block, perhaps enact a local abuse filter that warns and/or blocks usernames that follow a certain pattern, and move on. Dmehus (talk) 15:13, 22 October 2020 (UTC)

Ilikemoney has been vandalizing on multiple wikis.

Here's some evidence: diff #1, diff #2, diff #3, and diff #4 DarkMatterMan4500 14:44, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

@DarkMatterMan4500: Thank you, this is a much better report. I haven't looked at all the users' contributions globally to assess whether a lock or further local blocks are required, but at least you've provided some of what you view as the best evidence of this user possibly being a vandalism only account. It is acceptable to use external links as opposed MirahezeMagic pseudo-interwiki wikilinks or interwiki wikilinks. I have made a small change to your report, by adding displayed text to the diff links, to reduce the textual bloat of the URLs. That would be my only suggestion for future reports.

Local administrator request[edit | edit source]

Hello, as an administrator of this wiki, I would like to request the expansion of the administrator role to these users: Rod, Acronius, Valdiu, and UncleStas. (To provide additional oversight on the actions of the administration (i.e. mass Vandalism by administrators), and also wiki currently lacks a wiki owner/steward to create new admins.) Gorbatov (talk) 00:46, 30 October 2020 (UTC)

@Gorbatov: Hi. While this is no obligation, if there are no local policies, it's probably a good idea to follow Meta's election policy regarding time and leave the election open for around 5-7 in order to give everyone time to comment. Otherwise, you can define your own terms such as the percentage required for someone to become admin (if they wish to do so). Once that's done, a local bureaucrat can close the election and assign rights to whoever is successful. Alternatively, if there is no active local bureaucrat you can get a Steward to close the election and assign the rights. Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:46, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
