Are there any wikis or websites where I can write in Markdown but publish in HTML?[edit | edit source]

I've been having trouble finding something like a webpage or wiki where I can write in markdown. I don't exactly want a blog (apparently with Wordpress you can write in Markdown). So are there any sites where I can write in Markdown, and that support images?

  1. would work except anyone with the link can edit the source markdown.
  2. Gist supports images but not image captions, I'd like to have image captions.
  3. Pastebin doesn't support images and the resulting markdown looks bad.
  4. Creating an automatic Table of contents would be great but it's optional.

Thanks. --Bulrush (talk) 11:54, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

@Bulrush: Images are always supported, you can upload them as wanted, but I think writing in Markdown on MediaWiki is managed by an extension OR not possible. --Anderlaxe (talk) 11:59, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
@Anderlaxe: Would I have to install an extension on my wiki so I can write in markdown? --Bulrush (talk) 14:44, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
@Bulrush: Probably, it's best to dig around and see if you can find an extension for your wiki. Aνδρέας talk | contributions 02:25, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

No admins and bureaucrats on googologywiki[edit | edit source]

Hi, I am an editor at Googology Wiki. There are no active crats and admins, however there are a small amount of local users there. Because I am the only active user there, and the founder is totally inactive, can some steward or sysadmin give themselves admin, crat, check user and oversight rights? That way I can manage this wiki (file uploads are disabled there, and management is missing. Thank you.

Should I move this request to the adoption noticeboard? OwenFung87 05:03, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Link to wiki: OwenFung87

Stewards do not need to give bureaucrat and administrator permissions to themselves (unless somehow locally elected or themselves are the founders) because we can do the same thing on every wiki on Miraheze. Please note that we also have CVT for counter vandalism operations. For checkuser and oversight, you can make a request here on Stewards' noticeboard so that we can deal with reported cases every time when necessary.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 18:25, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Central notice creation for a new RfC[edit | edit source]

Hello, I was wondering if a steward could make a central notice for the new RfC located here. Thanks! Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 21:11, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

Hey, one more thing: The group centralnoticeadmin should be created.
I think it's managed by sysadmins via technical channel and not via wiki.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 09:52, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
CN is stewards responsibility primarily. Sysadmins use it as they see fit for their purposes, all community stuff falls to stewards. John (talk) 13:58, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
OK, thanks for your comment.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 14:34, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done The CN should be working now.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 15:33, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

One of Loathsome Characters Wiki's admin is going rouge and deleting everything![edit | edit source]

I'm speechless. Noblets563 (talk) 19:15, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

User:Bennyben1998[edit | edit source]

Bennyben1998 is inactive on

As the founder, I request his demotion as our wiki's rules are that if a bureau is inactive for more than a specified amount of time, that he is to be demoted.

Yes check.svg Done; I've dropped the bureaucrat flag. -- Void Whispers 21:36, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

Temporary adminship[edit | edit source]

Hi, because the founder is totally inactive, and I needed to import templates from enwiki, can you please give me administrator rights? OwenFung87 03:59, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

On which wiki? If the wiki is eligible for adoption, please file a request on requests for adoption. If not, please bring us a community decision of the wiki so that we can see your request is legitimate.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 15:35, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
@開拓者: It is no use filing a local request for adminship because the last active user before me was active 2 months ago and now the community is totally dead. I am sure that pinging them locally won't work, as most of them are active on FANDOM and not here. OwenFung87 05:13, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
You can still create a voting page or anything similar to prove your claim. After the vote proves that you are the only one remaining there, your will will be treated as the will of the community (until a newcomer approaches). --開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 16:24, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
I have already created a voting page. OwenFung87 10:58, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

I have a problem[edit | edit source]

Can someone look at this? I can not get any further.

@DAWR: @John: has fixed the issue, in the future you only need to post these types of messages to the Community Noticeboard, and no need to post the same message to multiple noticeboards either! Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 21:00, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks --DAWR (talk) 22:04, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

    • Please first understand the policies before running for staff (or possibly, a steward). There are some proper processes for it. Anyone, however, is welcome to contribute as volunteers.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 07:16, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

United Peoples Against Censorship[edit | edit source]

Please delete this weekend. I own it and I don't want it anymore. Thnx.

OK, but why do we have to wait until weekend? Do you mind if I (or any other steward) delete the wiki right away?--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 05:06, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 12:03, 12 October 2019 (UTC)[edit | edit source]

Could u change the subdomain to ?

Hi, You need to find a way to contact admins on that wiki as Stewards can not assist in this. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     around) 14:13, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
