Administrators' noticeboard
This page is for matters that need administrators' attention on Meta Wiki only (anything global should be discussed at the Community noticeboard!) Please visit Community noticeboard for matters regarding other wikis, Phabricator for technical requests and Stewards' noticeboard for something that requires a steward.

Here you can:

  • Ask an admin to block a user who is disruptive, vandalizing, or spamming
  • Request user rights that can be assigned by administrators (autopatrolled, confirmed, rollbacker, translationadmin)
  • Bring up other things that need administrators' attention. (on meta)

Notes:

  • To request permissions that can't be assigned by an administrator, please see Meta:Requests for permissions
  • To bring up matters that don't apply to this wiki or to request something for another wiki (or can't be handled by administrators), please use Stewards' noticeboard.
  • To ask a question or start a discussion with the Miraheze community please use Community noticeboard

Continued Issues With Inappropriate Wiki[edit source]

Thank you for removing the bulk of the libelous content, but unfortunately I was made aware of similar content on the same wiki (https://truecapitalist.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page) making allegations that are untrue:

https://truecapitalist.miraheze.org/wiki/Jackler on the bottom paragraph it refers to myself as a "pedophile" an extremely false statement. This is abusive behavior, and defamation toward myself made by this wiki, which seems to be premised on articles meant to insult and harass individuals they've targeted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheGiant1 (talkcontribs)

Problem with Upload file and can not log in to Phabricator?[edit source]

Hi!

I am a new user and have just started a site! But can not upload files? And are not allowed to log in to Phabricator? I wonder if there can be something that I have missed here? Best regards from https://swedishmuseum.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page_Archive /VisbyStar

Hi, What errors are you seeing (for both file uploads and Phabricator). ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     around) 20:15, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
For upload file it is: Action failed

Jump to navigationJump to search Could not open lock file for "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/7/78/20190906_171010.jpg". Make sure your upload directory is configured correctly and your web server has permission to write to that directory. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Manual:$wgUploadDirectory for more information.

and for Phabricator it is: Du har inte behörighet att utföra den åtgärd du begärt. (in Swedish) It says I am not allowed to do this request.
We're looking into the file upload issue and regarding Phabricator, Are you signing up via the 'Mediawiki account' option. (You can only create an account if you use that to link your Miraheze account). ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     around) 20:25, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Hi, file uploads should work now! It appears your wiki's folder was missing on our file storage servers hence why there was a failure. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Paladox (talk) 20:43, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Great! Thank you very much! I will try to solve the Phabricator "problem" later. I think my account is not connected yet. VisbyStar (talk) 20:50, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Would you be able to try phabricator again please? We think we've discovered the problem and fixed it! (https://github.com/miraheze/mw-config/commit/73686b1db78b6eac9fc1f016a29f96b794efc61c) Paladox (talk) 21:34, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

User:Zacharycook505[edit source]

They are copying a bunch of unnecessary templates from Wikipedia, even with no attributions. Therefore please block this user. - P1av0rSe01Complaint? 10:59, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

@PlavorSeol: I've Yes check.svg deleted the pages but am X mark.png declining to block at this point. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     around) 13:03, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
Concur; this user's edits seem unwise but not necessarily malicious. In addition to failure to attribute the material to Wikipedia editors, which you mentioned to the user on his talk page, the user might not understand that Meta is not for individual wiki-building but for the designated purposes, and has all the templates it needs unless people decide to add new features to it.

Loading Slowly and 503 frequently[edit source]

I'm frequently meet Loading Slowly and 503 on https://splatoonwiki.miraheze.org/ and https://meta.miraheze.org/

How can I fix it?

Please let me know if it happens again. Paladox (talk) 15:24, 23 September 2019 (UTC)
It happens from time to time though our sysadmins have been trying to improve the situation. When the wiki is down, you can use our IRC or Discord to report the problem lively.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 12:59, 24 September 2019 (UTC)


Thank you very much! It's been better!
