Tiresias (talk) 02:46, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

@Tiresias: According to the wiki's Special:AncientPages, the wiki was recently edited (Dec 19) and not 60 days ago. This is a post-migration bug. You can notify wiki bureaucrats (to reopen at Special:ManageWiki/core) or request this from a steward at stewards noticeboard. --YellowFrogger (Talk) 02:50, 19 January 2022 (UTC)
@Tiresias: Hello. Please do not make duplicate requests. I replied to you. The wiki is not inactive, it was a bug that caused it. See my message above. Expect a steward to do this. Thank you for understanding. --YellowFrogger (Talk) 04:06, 19 January 2022 (UTC)
Apologies- I did not mean to make the duplicate request! I will reach out to the stewards. Thank you! Tiresias (talk) 16:03, 19 January 2022 (UTC)

Mtcat101 (talk) 02:23, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Hello, Mtcat101. This wiki is eligible to be adopted and reopened. You should understand, however, that adoption does not grant any additional permissions to the requester, and simply reopens the wiki for editing. If you are seeking additional permissions on the wiki, you will be required to create a local election and report the results on Stewards' Noticeboard. Happy editing! dross (tcg) 06:02, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
Sounds good, I'll adopt it so it can be reopened, and then I'll set up a local election. Mtcat101 (talk) 00:12, 28 January 2022 (UTC)

Status:  Done
  • Wiki: unmusic.miraheze.org (On wiki: ManageWikiManageWiki logRecent Changes - On Meta: Wiki requestManageWiki/core)
  • Username: 小美粉粉 (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I like pseudobasis (伪基) series very much. Previously, it was used for unregistered, and anonymous editing was used. Unfortunately, I didn't find the community before I registered, but after I registered, the community was closed, so I wanted to adopt.
    After stopping using Wiki, it was adopted again. Unfortunately, a few days later, it was stopped. I want to adopt it back.
    I also like music very much. Is it OK?

@ChioGaming2007:  Open; a reason is preferred even if it is short, but I saw your wish/discussion on Discord. Unfortunately it's not enough to give advanced permissions for, as Miraheze has a fairly high bar for account identity and I'd need to have been familiar with the account/Discord alias prior to losing it for me to make the call. To get advanced permissions, you can start a local election requesting administrator and bureaucrat rights, which would be about a week of time to verify that there is no dispute and give me rationale to promote you there. You can message me via talk, leave a note on the Stewards' noticeboard or even respond to this at that point; I'm also available to poke on Discord. --Raidarr (talk) 09:32, 19 February 2022 (UTC)

Please request a new wiki (in your requesting reason, make sure to be specific and describe the wiki's purpose in 2-3 sentences. Requests that just talk about an old wiki being restored are usually declined.) and then file a Phabricator task asking for the contents of the old wiki to be imported onto this new wiki.

wikipuc.miraheze.org

Status:  Not done

Perropappa (talk) 17:37, 8 March 2022 (UTC)

@Perropappa: unfortunately, for this process I must mark  Not done because it seems the database of the wiki has already been dropped. Dropped databases are uploaded in clusters onto archive.org; unfortunately these tend to be big files on a slow server connection with many databases to eventually extract the one, and you'd need an idea of when the wiki was last available to know which dump would be correct. The 'dump' includes an XML file of the wiki (assuming it was public; if it was private, I'm afraid it is truly lost). Any images I'm afraid would not be available, but if it was public the text should be preserved if you can locate it. I will cc Dmehus, a senior fellow Steward to see if he has any further details I may have missed on this. --Raidarr (talk) 01:22, 9 March 2022 (UTC)

Connor Rozee (talk) 05:55, 12 March 2022 (UTC)

@Connor Rozee: This wiki was deleted and dropped due to inactivity on 20 November, 2021. Please note that all wikis on Miraheze are subject to the Content Policy which states that wikis that lack activity are closed in 2 months and later deleted some time after 6 months of the last sign of activity. If you wish to restore this wiki, please re-request it normally via Special:RequestWiki (if you request a wiki, make sure to provide a detailed reason for requesting a wiki. Providing a one sentence response such as "my old wiki was deleted" or "I was told to re-request a wiki" are almost always declined.) and then head to Phabricator and request that a systems administrator restore the latest backup on hand of this wiki. Thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 06:02, 12 March 2022 (UTC)
@Agent Isai: Can you kindly give me an update on progress to restore the latest backup to my hsffl wiki? Connor Rozee (talk) 00:25, 15 March 2022 (UTC)

unwatchablesports.miraheze.org

Status:  On hold

FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 03:48, 14 March 2022 (UTC)

FatBurn0000, you have made only 1 edit to unwatchablesportswiki. When you say it has "more potential than [you] initially thought," do you mean you have previously contributed to this wiki, under a prior account (locked or unlocked)? Otherwise, I'm not quite sure what you mean. Secondarily, the other concern I have is that you seem to be requesting, whether at requests for reopening wikis or stewards' noticeboard, to be requesting to adopt/reopen quite a lot of wikis, some of which you've made few or no contributions to. Please note that per Dormancy Policy, a user may not request to adopt or otherwise have reopened every wiki (which includes, in Stewards' discretion, a large number of wikis). So I would need a clearer reason for wanting this wiki to be reopened. Dmehus (talk) 03:58, 14 March 2022 (UTC)
@Dmehus: I initially thought the wiki was a bad idea because you can't really create good pages about why sports are bad and it's not fair to criticise people for being bad at sports. However, I then realised that the wiki could also be used to talk about teams and individuals that are known for not playing fairly, along with bad moments in sport history. Also, I'm not necessarily going to adopt it - but I would like to contribute. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 10:01, 14 March 2022 (UTC)
FatBurn0000, okay, thank you for the added information. I'll consider reopening this wiki for you tomorrow, provided that you can you confirm that you do not intend to request to have any and all closed Reception-style wikis reopened merely to save them from deletion per Dormancy Policy. Dmehus (talk) 04:08, 15 March 2022 (UTC)
@Dmehus: I can confirm that. I will only request for a wiki to be reopened if I am actually going to contribute. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 09:09, 15 March 2022 (UTC)

Hi there. First, I invite you to read User groups#Bureaucrats which explains what bureaucrats are on a wiki. Essentially, bureaucrats are the highest ranking users on a wiki which I can see you are on your own wiki.
Secondly, I'd like to point out that the Meta link you're trying to use is reserved for Stewards only. To reopen your own wiki, click here and uncheck the "Closed" checkbox. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:29, 24 March 2022 (UTC)

  • Wiki: gundam.miraheze.org (On wiki: ManageWikiManageWiki logRecent Changes - On Meta: Wiki requestManageWiki/core)
  • Username: Balofo2
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO(was)
  • Reason: I lost the phone that had the Google Authenticator app so I was locked out of my two wikis(the other is geass.miraheze.org) because there's no way to recover the 2FA code anymore. I still have the password for the original account: Balofo. Basically I need to be a bureaucrat again to fine tune the configurations since the wikis are still very WIP.

Balofo2 (talk) 01:00, 26 March 2022 (UTC)

@Balofo2: For future reference, please make new requests by clicking the "Add Request" button as you copied the request at the very top, didn't remove the "not done" template from it and forgot to change some of the links from the wiki on the old request to this new request. Requests at the very top are often ignored as they're considered done so for your sake, please use the "Add Request" button next time. Now, while the wiki can be reopened, I would like to note that reopening a wiki does not equal you automatically gaining bureaucrat and sysop on the wiki. Once the wiki is reopened, you must stage a local election for the rights first and if no one contests it, you can be elected by acclamation. Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:07, 26 March 2022 (UTC)
Ok, so what do I do now for reopening the gundam wiki? I will continue to edit the geass wiki. Balofo2 (talk) 05:04, 26 March 2022 (UTC)
@Balofo2: I've  reopened the wiki. In addition to Agent's advisement I intend to follow up with you on the account issues. You can either start a local election per above to regain rights in that way, or attempt to recover your account through alternate means - though, the first step for that is seeing if you have saved any of the one-time recovery codes you should have seen when first adding 2FA. If you lost those too, it's a good opportunity to advise you to save those somewhere else so you are not entirely dependent on your phone. --Raidarr (talk) 14:02, 27 March 2022 (UTC)
Thanks, nope I don't have recovery codes(or remember if they were sent somewhere). Balofo2 (talk) 00:11, 28 March 2022 (UTC)

Tannerzm (talk) 05:30, 29 March 2022 (UTC)

Tannerzm, it looks like thalaswakewiki was, unfortunately, closed, deleted, and dropped in this batch of deleted wikis in accordance with Dormancy Policy. As a private wiki, it would not be included in the publicly available Internet Archive backups that Reception123 does, but it may be in his private wiki backups. Your images won't be restorable, unfortunately, if you had any that is, as those aren't backed up. After  recreating your wiki, I have filed a Phabricator ticket, #T9005, for the XML import.

@Bimagv: Hi there, to reopen your wiki, click here and uncheck the "Closed" box. Agent Isai Talk to me! 22:18, 19 April 2022 (UTC)
@Bimagv: while I've gone ahead and  opened this, I reiterate Agent Isai's advice that you not only can reopen the wiki via Special:ManageWiki, it is the far more efficient, proper and preferred way to do so. This page is for (non-bureaucrat) people who are unable to open wikis but are interested in contributing to them. As the founder and primary contributor, it is your responsibility to keep it open by making contributions either consistently/with the help of any volunteers, or intermittently if you lack the time/community to be persistent (once every month would do the job). If you develop enough material on the wiki this way and there is quite a bit to come back to, you may request an exemption that will keep the wiki open on its own for much longer. I've left a message locally pointing to this notice, since it has come up on this page before. --Raidarr (talk) 17:35, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

WindowsXP4Ever (talk) 17:00, 21 April 2022 (UTC)

@WindowsXP4Ever: I appreciate your enthusiasm, but in this case the wiki was manually closed and merged off to a broader Retro Windows wiki (which you acknowledged). It has the same style, management and structure as the original + allows the same amount of XP content plus other retro systems, and so what you are requesting would create a fork that directly competes with its purpose - not all items require their dedicated wiki, if a broader one fully accommodates. I encourage that you contribute to the new version instead, and I'm sure its operator, Xack would be happy to have you. --Raidarr (talk) 13:08, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I love harry potter. Both wiki in Fandom and Miraheze, I love. I love the wiki series of Harry Potter very much. I've been a fan of the harry potter for years and would contribute there. Unfortunately the founder was globally locked and this wiki was inactive and closed. I'd like to adopt this wiki so that it doesn't die out. I also want to keep this wiki active and develop it. I want to be an admin and bureaucrat on that wiki too due to the only bureaucrat is lost and locked. Please reopen it and give me the admin and bureaucrat right. Thanks.

@小美粉粉: necessarily pinged to deliver important details. Firstly, the wiki is  open. Secondly, if you would like administrator/bureaucrat rights (and the reasoning is sensible), please see this page for what is needed. Reopenings no longer grant advanced permissions by default I'm afraid. --Raidarr (talk) 11:36, 4 May 2022 (UTC)
@Raidarr: I don't want other to ping is I edit on the wikis without Echo extension (e.g. TheiPhoneWiki) and I'm accustomed to forbid that because I closed this notice. Also, Fandom’s notification system has no ping notice feature. I read that I confirmed it has no activity, no active bureaucrats and no policies and it is public. I want to have admin and bcrat (bureaucrat) right. I am intersted to become a maintainer because I also edited on Chinese and Japanese Harry Potter Wikis in Fandom. I watched movies and read books about Harry Potter. --小美粉粉 (Talk) (Contribs) (Sandbox) (My Wiki) (Global Contribs) 1004065811 bytes of data NOTE: Do not {{ping}} me! 13:30, 4 May 2022 (UTC)
Very well, I can see the rationale. In any case I'm afraid the local election process remains necessary even if the wiki is fundamentally dead, as a sort of 'if anyone has reason why this shouldn't happen state your peace' step especially as a newcomer to the wiki. That said if all is in order the election can be closed early, and I invite you to prompt me in 3-4 days after the start to see how it's going . --Raidarr (talk) 14:35, 4 May 2022 (UTC)
@Raidarr: Yes. A user adopted French Vocaloid Wiki in Fandom on 2019-11-12. She's amazing. I created and edited useful pages on that wiki, see this. Where should the permissions voting be held? I don't understand. --小美粉粉 (Talk) (Contribs) (Sandbox) (My Wiki) (Global Contribs) 1004065811 bytes of data NOTE: Do not {{ping}} me! 14:35, 6 May 2022 (UTC)
@小美粉粉: Thank you for the follow up; you can use the talk page of the main page as a place to make the request with a simple vote setup. It could be like one of our Meta:Requests for permissions entries with the reason(s) you should have admin/bureaucrat + a discussion section, noting any significant changes you wish to make in the wiki's scope if any. If you notify here once it's made I can add you a sitenotice. After four days, prompt me and I'll see where things are at (the process can be up to 7 days unless there's complications). --Raidarr (talk) 09:29, 9 May 2022 (UTC)

@Ki2004:  Done. A local election (or the return of the founder/your friend) will be needed if you wish to have advanced rights on the wiki. Unfortunately we have no way to verify your connection with the founder. For the election process, any evidence of this/contributions in the meantime that expand on the topic of the wiki will help it work in your favor. --Raidarr (talk) 13:36, 10 May 2022 (UTC)

@LisafBia: I believe a local election is needed to be held on your adopted wiki for being a bureaucrat even there is no signs of activity on the wiki. After a successful local election (there is consensus to promote you being an bureaucrat), you can request at Stewards' noticeboard accordingly. Please post here with replies to let me/other users to know if you have any questions.--Matttest (talk) 08:28, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

@Elynrae:  open. I should note, it would be preferable for an older authorized club officer (preferably bureaucrat, but I'd consider a note from a previous administrator given the circumstances) to update your rights to include administrator and bureaucrat, the former for most tools and the latter for wiki settings including reopening. If this isn't possible a somewhat longer process is needed to get rights. This is all assuming you'd like operational control, as the elected lead of the community the wiki was created for. --Raidarr (talk) 20:55, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Lardy (talk) 01:31, 3 June 2022 (UTC)

@Lardy: Sorry for the late reply. Although I am not a steward, it is obvious that the wiki is deleted (it may still be in the database for re-enabling, see the Dormancy Policy) and the domain name provided here should be correct per your wiki request. Since this is a time-sensitive matter, I am pinging Raidarr, a steward here for a further follow-up. I will suggest you if the wiki is successfully reopened, you may request for an exemption from the wiki being deleted. You may be interested in checking the guidelines here. Cheers, Matttest (talk) 08:31, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
@Lardy:  open; the database was correct. As exemptions go they tend to set a somewhat high bar in content and circumstances, and I must say there are quite a few stubs that would make the content part difficult. But with growth or a determined case, it can still be considered. --Raidarr (talk) 20:50, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Now that I have more free time I wanted to edit on this wiki, but apparently the owners of this wiki have not wanted to give much importance to it, to the point of not having edited for 60 days. That's why I want to be the new owner of this wiki, because I think I can create more pages and run this wiki better.

@Gabyp112:  open. Please note that the wiki cannot necessarily be 'owned'; you need to request management access via a local election, the general idea I cover in this essay. In the waiting time you can go ahead and start tweaking things/making pages and as long as nothing special appears/the management has truly left, the rights will likely be granted. --Raidarr (talk) 12:52, 12 June 2022 (UTC)
