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)


  • 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
To add your request, type in a title and click the "Add Topic" button below.


dumpbackup.php[edit source]

Do you guys have telnet/SSH access? Is it permissible to ask for backups of our wiki? When I did it myself, I would use dumpbackup.php and just keep the current version, in case anything truly horrible happened. It would probably be impossible to email, but is there some kind of backup somewhere? --Aquatiki (talk) 12:53, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

@Aquatiki: Please see Backups. -- Void Whispers 13:44, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
Oh, sorry I missed that. Thanks! --Aquatiki (talk) 13:46, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

Account hacked[edit source]

I can’t log in into my account, Ofreporter. I want to create a new account to solve it. The temporary password is too complicated. 07:41, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

@ In the title you say it was "hacked", how do you know this? As for creating a new account, go ahead. Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:45, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
I knew that my account was hacked because I lost my password. 08:59, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Redirection to my user page[edit source]

This account has been hacked. I tried several times, but it didn't work. So to prevent further disruption to my former account, please immediately block that account and enable all the features (autoblock, prevent account creation, watch user page and it's talk page, etc) that are available. Additionally, I cannot change the user page of my former account because there was a error message shown. Please change this user page to a redirect with it's content only being #Redirect [[User:LegoMaster]]. Thank you. LegoMaster (talk) 12:12, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

@LegoMaster: Unfortunately, we cannot do that since there is no way for us to confirm that the account has indeed been hacked / that you are the same person. Because, in this way any user could claim that an account was compromised, so we cannot simply block any account like that. So, this would not be possible.

Vandal IP 2a01:e35:2e16:e540:bd78:72fe:9607:3e8d[edit source]

Please can someone block special:contributions/2a01:e35:2e16:e540:bd78:72fe:9607:3e8d please. I see that the IP creating unnecessary pages in the user contribs page please block the ip 😄😄😄Psl631 (Let's Chat!) 11:57, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

I have deleted the pages, but that is not a reason to block, as it appears the user thought Meta was their own wiki. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:14, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
OK Psl631 (Let's Chat!) 12:48, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Coniverse[edit source]

Can my wiki request be accepted please?

OtherRatio, this noticeboard is not meant for this sort of topic, please just wait patiently for a wiki creator to review your request. Also please make sure to sign your talk page posts with ~~~~ Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 12:53, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

LegoMaster[edit source]

As this user is creating wikis and notifying users, he is trusted enough to also get autopatrolled so his edits won't need manual review. Cheers! Spıke (talk)22:20 20-Mar-2019

Easily said, easily Yes check.svg Done -- Void Whispers 23:21, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
So am I trusted enough to become an admin? LegoMaster (talk - contribs - logs - uploads - global contribs) 00:27, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
I didn't assert that! only that your edits don't need to be analyzed individually for evidence of vandalism! If you want oppage, make your case in the usual way. Spıke (talk)00:36 22-Mar-2019
What do you mean by that? LegoMaster (talk - contribs - logs - uploads - global contribs) 01:26, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
The Patrol feature marks every edit from an anonymous or new user so that a Patroller is told to verify it is not vandalism. What happened here is that I suggested that we can assume that your edits are not vandalism. "What I mean" above is that nothing else happened here. If you want to be an Admin, ask to be an Admin.
