Requests for reopening wikis
You may request a closed wiki be reopened (if you are not a bureaucrat) if it was closed due to inactivity or closed manually by a bureaucrat. Please consider the below for what this page cannot support.
  • If the wiki has been deleted: this page should be skipped in favor of making an entry on the Steward requests/(Un)deletions area.
  • If the wiki has been closed manually: any reopening must be discussed with the local administrators or raised here, making the fact that it was closed manually here known.
  • If you are already a bureaucrat: Visit Special:ManageWiki on your own wiki and uncheck *closed*. You will be set from there.
  • If you would like to adopt a wiki including administrator & bureaucrat rights: Please review adoption and make this intent known in your request. For wikis that are not automatically closed, please start a local election.

Wikis that are set to private cannot be adopted due to privacy! You must be a registered user to request a reopening.

For other global issues please use see Steward requests.

We've been inactive for 60 days in a row because our team was being reorganised. Our new tech will update our Wiki on a weekly basis from now on. This is our main database for our activities. Thanks.

Since you appear to have reopened the wiki yourself, I'm marking this request as such. Tali64³ (talk | contributions) 22:41, 8 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Wiki: patrickerin.miraheze.org (On wiki: ManageWiki (e, n, p, s) • ManageWiki logRecent Changes - On Meta: Wiki requestManageWiki/core)
  • Username: Erinpadraig (userrights)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no):
  • Reason: A member of the team is responsible for posting all updates to this page using the account of our creative team (this account). However, this member has been experiencing serious work and life situation problems, and as a result this wiki has not been updated for the last 60 days. We have recently replaced the member responsible for making updates, and if it is reopened, it is expected that the wiki will continue to run for an extended period of time.

According to your CentralAuth, you are a bureaucrat on the wiki in question; therefore, you can reopen it yourself by going to Special:ManageWiki there and unticking the "Closed" box. Tali64³ (talk | contributions) 20:38, 12 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Erinpadraig: Since you are a bureaucrat, you can reopen the wiki as Tali said. Anyway, this is  Done. --1108-Kiju/Talk 11:00, 16 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Username: Sanol (userrights)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I have been retrieving images for the wiki for a few months, and I would like to put them in. I also accidentally got the name wrong, It's just 'themartinshow' not 'themartinshowwiki.' The images I was collecting were related to the characters and locations, but I wanted to make sure they were just right. I didn't want to edit the wiki until I had them all.

  • Username: ChloeV (userrights)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no):
  • Reason: I originally created this wiki in 2023 as User:Yclept but lost access to that account and thus no account could edit it afterwards due to the wiki's settings and my lacking bureaucrat status on this account. I submitted a request to reopen which was successful earlier this month, but still was unable to edit so after some searching on what to do I requested bureaucrat status for this account at Steward requests, and judging from there I seem to have received this. However, memeticat.miraheze.org now shows up as not found and I have no way to access. I am not sure if those two things are related but in any event would greatly appreciate if the wiki was reopened so I can finally contribute. Thank you for your time.

Rao (talk) 11:40, 16 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Rao Is this still an ongoing issue? It seems several roles and permission sets were eliminated from the wiki, if it continues to be a problem I can reset permissions to default which should restore all missing roles and privileges...
--NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 16:11, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@NotAracham Bureaucrat privileges were given to sysops before removing a few groups (including Bureaucrat).
The group Sysop was disappeared on its own lately. Can you make me a bureaucrat? Rao (talk) 16:30, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've re-created the group and assigned rights, can you confirm if you've now got access? It may take a logout and log back in to start working... ---NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 16:44, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The main issue (no Sysop) hasn't been resolved, but now that I'm a bureaucrat I hope I can work around it. Rao (talk) 17:54, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hmmm, I'm continuing to encounter glitches in attempting to resolve the admin-side, would you be alright if I proceeded with a reset of default permission groups? This may require a bit of work on your part after to set things up the way you want again...
--NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 18:06, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Something needs to be done... Let's give it a try. Rao (talk) 18:16, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Alright, reset has been processed, let us know if this solves the issue. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 18:23, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Seems like it does! Thanks! This time I'm assigning ManageWiki privileges for both sysops & bureaucrats, just to be safe.
Since this wiki got closed after ~2 weeks of inactivity for some reason, will you grant it an exempt? It's a general encyclopedia. Rao (talk) 18:46, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Given that this is unlikely to recur (esp. after we complete the move to the new platform), let's hold off for now. If it recurs, I'll be happy to grant a 1 year exemption to avoid further disruption. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 22:07, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@NotAracham It happened again. This time the wiki got closed after only a day or two of "inactivity". Rao (talk) 14:10, 4 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is due to changes in the 'Recent Changes' retention settings. You've currently got it set for a maximum of one day retention, and this log is what is used to drive inactivity decisions. I've reverted this to a setting which allows for retention up to 30 days, please let us know if the problem persists. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 17:27, 4 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The wiki has been closed without my or the other bureaucrats permission. It has been edited multiple times in the past 60 days.

wiki = physicalanthropology.miraheze.org

Your wiki was closed due to Steward determination that Miraheze will not be able to host it going forward. Options for download of data have been provided on the talk page message, but re-opening is not an option. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 08:24, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Draknoll (talk) 15:56, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
On review, you had eliminated critical permissions from/removed the Bureaucrat role, preventing access to managewiki options. I have reset wiki permissions to default, please test and see if this has restored your access.
If so, please be aware that any customizations you have made to group permissions previously will need to be re-established. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 07:06, 18 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This wiki I created was used to archive a lore of a world I created. Since its a long term project I go on times without adding anything and therefore I neglected the wiki. I'd like to change that and give a consistent drip of new information

Hi there. The wiki in question has not been closed, so you should be able to edit freely without issue. If you are requesting rights on the wiki, please follow the Local elections procedures. If you are requesting an inactivity exemption for the wiki, so the wiki won't be closed after periods of inactivity, please see the Dormancy Policy for more information. If you need any assistance or have questions regarding them above, please let me know and I'll be happy to help. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 04:46, 21 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): false
  • Reason: I, as the user of NovelAI, wish to take control of this abandoned wiki. It ranked really well in the google search, and I would be sad to see such real estate go to waste. The wiki had been relocated due to the recent change on miraheze. If you go to check naidb's first page, you'll see that the admin explicitly says that the wiki is abandoned—Yup, I would love to continue it.
Truthfully (talk) 14:58, 31 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This community intentionally emigrated to Github wikis and locked down the MH wiki, as stated on their mainpage. Placing on hold until consensus on how to proceed can be reached. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 17:20, 31 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, hold on, I just realized that this page is only for reopening the wiki. However, the naidb is somewhat an exclusive wiki that only allows certain members to edit it; thus, transferring permission is likely required.
After thinking over it, I realized that I could just wait until the wiki is deleted from inactivity and reopen the subdomain myself.
I hoped that I'm not wasting your time here, but if you don't mind, I believe it's probably better for me to withdraw. Truthfully (talk) 07:26, 1 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): yes

I am back now, want to continue the original plan of my wiki, especially now that I have a new job where I will be using this more. I also have been planning a better way to make it work on the technical side. I know that my wiki has been closed for awhile, so if it's been deleted I don't mind starting from scratch. I also have a subdomain I plan to point here, but I will follow the instructions for that after this request has been made.
