You are currently logged out. Please note that if you are having problems with your wiki, you need to login.

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.

Accordingly, please kindly login. If you are unable to login, please e-mail tech at miraheze.org with your username and the specific error message you are receiving, and they will assist you, or direct you to other global functionaries where appropriate.

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:

  • Sign your request using ~~~~
  • Stay respectful
  • Give us enough details regarding your problem

Wiki was removed, and now can't be reopened

My wiki (https://thisland.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page) was closed due to inactivity, and I didn't receive any warnings in advance by email.

I emailed tech@ and was told that my wiki has been reopened. Now when I visit I see "This wiki has been closed because there have been no edits or logs made within the last 60 days. This wiki is now eligible for being adopted. To adopt this wiki please go to Requests for adoption and make a request. If this wiki is not adopted within 6 months it may be deleted. Note: If you are a bureaucrat on this wiki you can go to Special:ManageWiki and uncheck the "closed" box to reopen it." I went to Special:ManageWiki but I am unable to uncheck the "closed" box.

Could anyone help me get my wiki working again? Could anyone help me to make sure that I will get email notifications next time the wiki is about to be taken offline?

Thank you! Cassolotl (talk) 17:05, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

If you are a bureaucrat, you can go to the wiki and type Special:ManageWiki/core and uncheck the closed box and click submit. Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 17:17, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
I just went to https://thisland.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:ManageWiki/core and there's "Manage this wiki's core settings > Select what you would like to manage below, and click submit! > Main Settings", but all the options are greyed out and I'm unable to do anything! Cassolotl (talk) 17:25, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
I do not see that message, you should be fine to edit normally. Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 17:37, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
@Cassolotl: This seems to have been resolved in these log actions by Void. So, you should be able to edit on the wiki now. Dmehus (talk) 18:45, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
Thank you, I am now able to edit! Cassolotl (talk) 13:46, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

My wiki has a closed notice on it again. It says "This wiki has been closed because there have been no edits or logs made within the last 60 days." Here is an edit history showing that the wiki has been edited within the last 60 days. It says that if I'm a bureaucrat I can go to https://thisland.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:ManageWiki and uncheck the closed box, but all the options are greyed out and I am unable make changes or save.

Could you please reopen the wiki? Thank you! :) --Cassolotl (Talk) (My wiki) (Pronouns: they/them) 11:14, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

It seems to be open again...? This is very confusing! :D --Cassolotl (Talk) (My wiki) (Pronouns: they/them) 22:11, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
I don't know what happened to you there, but you should be all set to go now. -- Void Whispers 23:18, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Can you decline the name request I sent?

I decided I don't want to change my username for now.
ItMeansNothing (talk) 17:07, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

@ItMeansNothing: Okay, thanks. I haven't seen it processed, so will {{ping}} @NDKilla, Void, and John: to please cancel your global rename request in the queue. Dmehus (talk) 18:46, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@WageTheClancist12: Unfortunately, your global rename request was processed today by a steward, so hopefully you are okay with your requested username. If not, you request a new rename, or just leave it as is until you settle on a new name. We do try and encourage people not to change their name too frequently, though (i.e., ideally one username change per twelve month timeframe is a good guideline). Dmehus (talk) 02:35, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Fine. :(

Admin Transfer per Election Results

Wiki: https://powder.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page Election: https://powder.miraheze.org/wiki/Polls

After forgetting my original admin password, I created a new account, MaximoMaxim, and held a wiki-wide election, as was suggested in a previous post on this board, in order to transfer admin status. I am proud to say the election was a success with MaximoMaxim winning the role of Admin with 1 vote. I am requesting a steward assess this election and action upon the results. Thank you.

MaximoMaxim (talk) 05:46, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

 Done John (talk) 10:15, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
I apologize I am simply being dumb, but it seems I still lack admin rights for the POWDER wiki. I cannot delete pages and Administrator does not appear in my user preferences. MaximoMaxim (talk) 03:08, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
@MaximoMaxim: I checked your wiki's user rights log, and didn't see any reference to you accidentally removing rights from yourself. I also checked Meta's user rights log, with @John: as performer, since that's where stewards change users' rights on other wikis, and didn't see anything. So, I am betting John marked this as done, but forget to grant rights. So, I have pinged him to this thread. Dmehus (talk) 04:05, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
@MaximoMaxim: @John: has now  granted you the requested local user rights on your wiki. So this is now  Done. Dmehus (talk) 01:43, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

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: https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:CentralAuth/QwertyMan%2765 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)

@QwertyMan'65: I doubt that highly. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 11:49, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
@DarkMatterMan4500: I treated you like a crap because you trying to slander me, by hesitating my help. Please do not make cruel action that making us to humiliate themselves. 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)

Interwiki admin for me @ scpminecraft@miraheze.org

For managing IW entries. I will only add HTTPS sites. Instance (talk) 05:34, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

@Instance: Hi, for now, you can not pretend to have this right on your wiki because you don't meet the requirement described on this page (TLDR: You need to have 1000 edits over Miraheze Network, 2 months old on your global account and be trusted). But if you need to had some Interwiki entry on your wiki, you can ask for it here and a global Interwiki administrators will take the request :). HeartsDo (Talk || Global || Wiki Creator) 06:41, 11 October 2020 (UTC)
@HeartsDo and Instance: I believe @Instance: is requesting local interwiki administrator on a single wiki. It's not well known, as it's a local user group that is only granted by stewards, mainly for security reasons. The current global policy for that user group is that the user must hold bureaucrat permissions on the wiki being requested. It's true, though, that Instance could request, at community noticeboard, a global interwiki administrator to add any interwiki prefixes to his local wiki's interwiki table. This is not the user's first account, as they've identified this as the "role account" of User:404 Error. On the other hand, they've requested deletion on this noticeboard of their previous Minecraft wiki, so if you exclude those global edits from consideration, they don't have a lot of edits. Though not necessarily codified in the policy, I would tend to concur with HeartsDo that requesting a few interwiki prefixes be added at community noticeboard is honestly your best bet.

Please delete my bonziworld wiki

I am no longer affiliated with the fandom of bonziworld and I will never go in the rollercoaster, but I kindly ask you to delete my wiki (bwr.miraheze.org) please. Thanks! ItzCrazyScout (talk) 16:50, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

@ItzCrazyScout: Okay, thanks. A steward should review and action your request for deletion in due course. In the mean time, please make sure you have closed your wiki in its Special:ManageWiki page, so that natural processes will take care of deletion eventually as well.

Lock VosVosKitsune

She's an evade alt account of Zenko and she admitted that she was. Also both have similar behavior, as both wish for Fun shitposting wiki to get deleted off the web (I have proof about the evade account (VosVosKitsune) wishing the same thing, just see the edit summary.). Not to mention, both write long extremely long and unnecessary paragraphs (more proof). - M̶̩͎̈e̷͚͊͠M̶͍͛̕è̷͙G̶̖̀̕ͅu̶͖̘͂Y̴̨̢͠W̶̼̻̓̕ḁ̸̩̐̊s̶͙͠L̵̙͇̈́ŏ̷̲͝s̷͈̅ṭ̷̎́ (𝕊𝕔𝕣𝕖𝕒𝕞𝕚𝕟𝕘 / 𝔸𝕔𝕔𝕠𝕦𝕟𝕥 𝕚𝕟𝕗𝕠) 23:06, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

@MeMeGuYWasLost: I note that your "report" in this thread is very similar, extremely so, to this report by a logged out IP editor. So, I would just remind you of user accounts policy, a global policy, and your obligations to it, including editing while logged out. Have you, or have you ever, created any additional Miraheze accounts? While not ideal in that, ideally, the user should discuss privately with stewards their plans to return to Miraheze, the fact that VosVosKitsune has steered clear of wikis on which Zenko was previously locally blocked is both very positive and shows the user has the capacity for change. I would also note that many of those wikis have since been closed and made private, or deleted, by stewards for serious Code of Conduct and Content Policy violations, which went unremediated despite numerous warnings and advisories from global functionaries. Nonetheless, regarding your report, continuing to drag up the same old drama, frankly, is tiring, and I would really urge you to drop the stick. Dmehus (talk) 23:42, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

Merge users

Hello, Special:CentralAuth/DKDIB_0 needs to be merged with Special:CentralAuth/DKDIB and inherit its credentials/contribs etc. Also, I'd like to have an answer to #Page missing after moving the wiki. Thanks. Wedhro (talk) 07:08, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

This is being  handled elsewhere. Further replies should occur there, to minimize or eliminate this thread being cross-posted and thus duplicated. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 15:58, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

Lock GargamelKluxKlan for being a vandalism-only account

Please note that I have only reported the most used/abused open proxies. I may not have a lot of time within the six months period due to a lot of issues awaiting me in real life. After that period I may update a list on a separate page. Any steward/global sysop familiar with range blocks may make additional blocks. All the proxies above are confirmed 100%.

@Synoman Barris: Thanks for your report. That's quite the list, so for readability of this page, I've wrapped the list in {{collapse top}} and {{collapse bottom}}. A steward or Global Sysop should review and action your report accordingly. Dmehus (talk) 19:10, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Please delete these users/cyberbullies' Mirahaze as they stole/copied our wikia and have tried to slander our name!!

I am the owner and admin of the Horrible and Best Music Wikias on Fandom. But earlier today I noticed a wikia that copied us is still up. I've tried emailing the tech, conduct, and steward team for some time for the last month and a half to barely any response.

Now for context, back in 2018/2019 a group of users tried to get revenge on us for not complying and agreeing with their malicious opinions and for blocking them so they made their own version of our wikia that promoted hate, bias, and completely copied and stole several of our pages and rules. We confronted them about it a year ago and they said they took it down, but recently a friend of mine informed me that it's still up and being edited on.

Is it possible that you could take it down because they were (and probably are) still trying to convince people they were the victims and spreading false allegations and lies about us on Fandom, including that we were going through a downfall, even though we're doing just fine.

Also, these same people have also made a biased Miraheze aimed at bad wikias and users, which wouldn't be too bad except most of the pages are lies and clearly just made to get revenge on those on Fandom who have "wrong them", especially us since we blocked them for toxic behavior. Is it possible you could get these Mirahezes taken down because most of these people are notorious cyberbullies/toxic users who just want us to get hated on and ruin reputations of people who disagree with them for years.

Also, since Fandom is having us move off their website I just wanted to make sure they are gone because me and my team don't want to be associated with those websites or accused of copying them, when they were the one's who stole/copied us!! When they heard the news that we were being shut down, they made a celebratory post on the fake wikia.

@HarmonTower805: I'm sorry to hear about the problems. Unfortunately, since you've licensed your wikis' content under a CreativeCommons license, the Miraheze version(s) of your wikis' content is perfectly allowed. They don't even necessarily have to provide full attribution history; ideally, they should provide a link to the source page on your wiki in an edit summary for every page copied, but at minimum, they could simply have a "copyright information" page stating the sources from where they copied their content. As to claims of libel, your report to stewards would need to be much more comprehensive than this, citing individual diffs as stewards don't have the time to investigate broad and vague claims. In short, you must do the investigating, and supply the evidence, which stewards will assess. One of those Miraheze wikis you've linked to, Unfavorable Fandom Wikis has been closed and made private by stewards on unrelated Content Policy and systemic Code of Conduct violations, so it will be deleted in accordance with Dormancy Policy. In the mean time, no one can view that wiki, and it is locked, so existing wiki members cannot edit it under any circumstances. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 01:41, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
Alright, I guess this does help and give a little closure...but basically you're saying that I just need to be able to convince stewards with evidence that I'm in the right, even though the cyberbullies stole our wikia without our consent and try to slander us? HarmonTower805 (talk) 7:50, 12 October 2020 (MST)
@HarmonTower805: I mean, if those wikis have not provided any attribution to your wiki, I'm sure stewards could be convinced to require the wiki to add an attribution page that links to your wiki(s) in question, but I would just note they didn't "steal your wiki"; see my above comments. Claims of cyberbullying are another matter and could contravene the Code of Conduct, which is something that would concern stewards; however, your report must be thorough and evidence supported. If, following your report, the resolution by stewards is unsatisfactory, or if stewards have not acted on your follow up thorough report, you may e-mail the Code of Conduct Commission if it concerns the Code of Conduct. The e-mail address is conduct at miraheze.org. I would just note that, though I am not a steward, I am an elected member of the Code of Conduct Commission, so I can't really provide any further comment or advice regarding your potential case. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 03:29, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
Alright! Thank you! Will do! (talk) 10:15, 12 October 2020 (MST)

I want to change private to public

Special:RequestWikiQueue/14498#mw-section-comments. What does stewards' think? --Gomdoli4696 (talk) 03:11, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

To my understanding, you should be able to change this through Special:ManageWiki. Are you not? Naleksuh (talk) 03:16, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
Request approved and wiki created. Conditionally approved as a private test wiki of the requestor and any invited users whom they make member or sysop. I have BOLDly made the wiki request private, for procedural expediency, rather than decline, and request the requestor change it to "private." As this is a test wiki, it cannot be approved as a public test wiki without consensus from the TestWiki community and/or at community noticeboard. So, please do not change your wiki to public without such consensus and closure by a steward. Thanks.

@Gomdoli4696: Thank you filing this request, but I approved your wiki, conditionally, as it's a test wiki. By long-established convention that supplements Content Policy, public test wikis should have the endorsement of the Public Test Wiki community at TestWiki's community portal. Please put forward a proposal to the local community, if you wish, but I would just note you can add anyone you wish as a member or sysop to your private wiki. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 03:22, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: It's not a public wiki, but I hope everyone can see it. and I'll create abuse filter. Gomdoli4696 (talk) 03:24, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
@Gomdoli4696: That's not the issue. The issue is that we only need one Public Test Wiki, and, invariably, confusion ensues when there are multiple general purpose public test wikis on Miraheze. Thus, you do need to establish local consensus on TestWiki to make your wiki public. Or, you can keep your wiki private, and instead invite a few friends and colleagues to your wiki, adding them to the member or sysop group. They can see your entire wiki when in those groups; otherwise, they can only see your Main Page. I hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 03:32, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
I'll make filter, if editor is not has editprotect right, only can edit project namespace (and can add join request). So, this wiki is semi-public wiki. How about this? Gomdoli4696 (talk) 03:45, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
@Gomdoli4696: Well, you have this wiki, which is already public. You requested this wiki on the condition that it be a private wiki. We have, in the past, allowed private test wikis, to experiment with ManageWiki, but I see no reason to approve a competing public test wiki when Public Test Wiki serves this purpose, and I would Strong oppose any attempt to make it public without you having first obtained local consensus to start public fork of TestWiki at TestWiki's community portal. How does that sound? Thanks. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 03:51, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Please Close This Wiki

Hello, I would like to request that https://thenewreceptionwiki.miraheze.org be deleted. The founder, Maddox121, no longer wants the wiki and regrets creating it as shown on the Main Page. The wiki also caused onsite and offsite drama. Alairma (talk) 03:58, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

@Alairma: Hi. Any bureaucrat on the wiki can close it themselves by going to Special:ManageWiki and checking the closed box. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:28, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
The bureaucrats there refuse to close the wiki. The wiki steals numerous pages from Crappy Games Wiki, Awful Movies Wiki, etc. and caused a lot of drama. Plus, General I80 is a corrupt user and caused a lot of damage to the wiki. Alairma (talk) 13:30, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
@Alairma: I mean, in theory, you could hold a local poll on the wiki requesting the wiki be closed and locked, but if that wiki has active local bureaucrats and administrators, it would not surprise me if they ended up locally blocking you for that, so personally I wouldn't recommend that. What I would recommend is that you compile a list of diffs (or revisions) that indicate a systemic pattern of either, or both, Content Policy and Code of Conduct violations. The former generally applies to the content on the wiki, whereas the latter applies to users' (including administrators') conduct, typically in the form of their comments, edit summaries, and log summaries. This will take time, but overall, a thorough, substantive report will carry a lot more weight with stewards than a "please close this wiki because local administrators are biased and dramatic" report. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 14:26, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Can you please lock MillyComedian4567?

https://astonishingscratchers.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/MillyComedian4567

They are vandalizing multiple pages on Astonishing Scratchers Wiki and adding unacceptable and biased stuff to the "Bad Qualities" headings. Can you deal with them? Because they might be a troll. Thanks! Oh, and they are also possibly these IP users saying rude things against men, which is sexist. -- Perry The Chiweenie (talk) 12:07, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

As the vandalism is limited to one wiki, there is no need for a global lock at this time. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:12, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for letting me know! I just think they're a troll, that's all. :) -- Perry The Chiweenie (talk) 12:14, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
Yes, that seems to be the case and CircleyDoesExtracter has already blocked them locally on the wiki so that will be sufficient for the time being. If it spreads to other wikis they will be globally locked (feel free to let me know). Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:16, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I saw they were blocked. Thanks anyway! -- Perry The Chiweenie (talk) 13:07, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Please Lock General I80

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)

Can you please do a CheckUser test on Moh278USA and his suspected sockpuppet BIG2778US?

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

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)

Requesting CheckUser - Possible compromised account

this and especially this do not seem like anything this user would do. My concerns were initially raised because this user has a history of good-faith edits on our site. After checking their Global Information page, I've seen the current drama involving them, but it seems odd to go from being profusely apologetic on 2-3 different wikis literally ten minutes before the edits in question were made to doing that. Also, note the swearing in the second edit summary. I have never seen this user swear, even when they did insult someone. Add to that the fact we had a troll get banned for exactly the same spam about a month ago. If these two edits were the cause of their global lock, I would suggest a CheckUser be performed to verify that it was them who posted those last two edits on the CLG Wiki. Hb1290 (talk) 01:32, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

@Hb1290: I appreciate your concern for the welfare of the above-captioned user and their account and, while I agree that it is very atypical for this user to curse, it is not reasonable, considering the user had just been blocked by a Global Sysop in accordance with the Code of Conduct, as the user may been reacting to the tense situation in a very irrational, emotional, and atypical way. Nevertheless, if the user's account was compromised, it would still be necessary, for the purposes of account security, to lock the account. The user in question can contact cvt at miraheze.org or stewards at miraheze.org to appeal their global lock and discuss the circumstances that gave rise to both their behaviour and the lock. As the Code of Conduct was invoked, they also have Code of Conduct Commission as a final avenue of appeal, too. So, anyway, I'm sure stewards, together with the local actioning Global Sysop @Zppix:, are capable of handling this case. Dmehus (talk) 02:15, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Hmmmm, something's fishy here. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 02:22, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

Once it's locked, you can e-mail stewards at miraheze.org or cvt at miraheze.org in the future to request an unlock, should you wish to return to Miraheze and use that user account.

Lock Tutrlesfanboy3444 for cross-wiki vandalism

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. https://awfulmovies.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=Leaving_Neverland&oldid=106646 https://awfulmovies.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=Leaving_Neverland&oldid=106648 https://awfulmovies.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=Leaving_Neverland&oldid=106650 https://awfulmovies.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=Leaving_Neverland&oldid=106651 https://awfulmovies.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=Leaving_Neverland&oldid=106652 https://awfulmovies.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=Leaving_Neverland&oldid=106654 https://awfulmovies.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=Leaving_Neverland&oldid=106656 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)

Local interwiki administrator request

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.

@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

Hello I would like to ask how to activate wiki https://jeongongbible.miraheze.org/wiki/%EB%8C%80%EB%AC%B8. 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

@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)
