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 (autoconfirmed, 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

Private maken?[edit source]


van mij mag iedereen mijn wiki lezen, enkel schrijven zou ik enkel door mezelf willen laten doen. Ik denk dat ik daarvoor een verkeerde keuze heb gemaakt bij het aanvragen van mijn wiki. Hoe krijg ik het voor elkaar dat enkel ikzelf kan schrijven?

Alvast bedankt! Mvg, Gin.

Make several mediawiki pages[edit source]

Translation error in Help center[edit source]

Hi. I've found out that when I try to add the discord link in translated pages, it fails, saying:

Saving the translation failed: This namespace is reserved for content page translations. The page you are trying to edit does not seem to correspond any page marked for translation.

I guess something's wrong, but I'm not sure what it actually is. It happened after the page was edited by Reception123, so I guess it's something related to the revision, but now the page is protected and only admins can modify it, which is why I post this issue here.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs) 10:16, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Hmm, works for me, could have been a temporary thing? I dunno. -- Void Whispers 15:14, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
Right, I guess it was a temporary thing after all, because it works fine now.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs) 00:42, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

Marking fully protected pages for translation[edit source]

Hi, I've been working as a translation admin, and I found out that there are some pages that I think should be marked for translation, but couldn't because they were protected. Thus, I'll post a list of pages to request to mark for translation, so that admins can mark it. Here are the pages I'd like to list up:

  • Donate - Translation can allow more foreign users to donate to Miraheze.
  • Dormancy Policy - It's one of the important policies regarding wiki, isn't it?
  • Dormancy_Policy/Exemptions - It's a list, but the reasons and the descriptions should be marked for translation, as it can be helpful for those making such requests.
  • Security - It makes it easier for foreign users to report security issues, if any.
  • System administrators - You know, other pages about privileged permissions are all marked for translation, and this should also be, to understand what they do.
  • Meta:Copyrights - We should always be aware of copyrights and licenses. No matter what language we use.
  • Template:Wiki created - Though it is manually translated, I think we should use the same extension-based translation.
    • I haven't marked {{Wiki created(CD)}} for translation yet, because it causes differences between these two, I will, after {{Wiki created}} is marked.

Thanks for reading.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs) 13:15, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

Dormancy Policy/Exemptions and System administrators are lists which IMO have no no need for translations. The wiki creation templates are already translated without the translate system. Using translate for these would require modification of User:Void/createWikiNotify.js, and would require usage of Template:TNT. I've marked the other pages for translation.

Thanks for your response. Though I'm not sure enough why the page System administrators has no need for translation in your opinion (for other pages, I guess you're right), I'll work on other pages marked for translation.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs) 04:42, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Request for adding MediaWiki:Edittools[edit source]

Hi, I'd like to request for adding edittools on meta, since, as a wiki creator, we use a set of particular templates a lot, and it will be more efficient for us, if we could just click to add such templates. Templates that should be added and the formats are:

Thank you.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs) 03:39, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

@開拓者: Please also note that for the first 7 templates you mention, you don't need to manually add them, you can just use this script in your settings, and it will do it for you after you created the wiki. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:31, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
@Reception123: I guess you're right about the first 7 templates, but for declined requests, we still need to manually type those templates, and it's better for us if we can just add them by clicking.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs) 09:00, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
Not exactly sure how it works, but I see no issue in adding the templates. Reception123 (talk) (C) 10:50, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
@Reception123: Thanks. Here's how to do it.
  1. It seems that you first need to enable Extension:CharInsert here on meta (as it is disabled), so a bureaucrat should (and can, which means no additional installations are required) first go to Special:ManageWiki to enable it.
  2. Add some lines for the requested templates on MediaWiki:Edittools in this format: <span style="margin-left:1ex;white-space:nowrap"><charinsert><nowiki>{{subst:Requestdenyexists}}</charinsert></nowiki>.
  3. Wrap the whole content with <p id="edittools_wikimarkup"></p>.
  4. After the page is saved, that edittool will appear right under the editbox, and by clicking a template, it will be added in the wikitext.
  5. You can also add other templates, tags, characters, or whatever you want, if necessary. edittools on my wiki may be a good sample for it.
