CheckUser request for a suspected sockpuppet

Hi, I'd like a check on these three users for the Mental Block Wiki:

They've already been blocked by a fellow moderator (their edits were suspiciously similar, and I believe some vandalism happened after their first account got blocked); with that said, it would be nice to check, just to be sure, and, if these are sockpuppets, to block this IP range if possible.

Thank you! Dissentrix (talk) 23:32, 26 September 2022 (UTC)

They are indeed sockpuppets. I have  locked them and have  blocked their IP range. Let us know if they return. Agent Isai Talk to me! 04:09, 27 September 2022 (UTC)
Thank you very much! Dissentrix (talk) 07:35, 27 September 2022 (UTC)

Question (3)

How do I request something from system administrators? FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 03:35, 27 September 2022 (UTC)

Depends. What are you wanting to request? Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:56, 27 September 2022 (UTC)
I would like to request imports of pages from Qualitipedia wikis into the New Reception Wiki. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 21:58, 27 September 2022 (UTC)
That will not be done as direct forks of other wikis are not allowed per the Content Policy. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:11, 28 September 2022 (UTC)
That may change soon. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 21:05, 28 September 2022 (UTC)

Global Lock Request

I know I could have made a request to unlock either of my previous accounts. However, since I wanted to make my life easier, I decided to create a new one just so that I can cast my vote on the RFC regarding Qualitipedia's closure. But now that the closure has been done, I would politely request to have my account locked once again because I no longer have a use for it. Thanks. Skias (talk) 07:29, 27 September 2022 (UTC)

Could you guys move my pages over to the New Reception Wiki

With the wikis closed, I need a easier way to archive them, without having to copy and paste the source code. And there is not a way to move the pages over with all revisions copied and all edits assigned to users if they exist locally. So could it be possible for the Stewards to do it? I want my work saved on there. [1] Nidoking (talk) 11:08, 27 September 2022 (UTC)

What pages? Agent Isai Talk to me! 12:09, 27 September 2022 (UTC)
I am going to link some from my special logs from the reception wikis, here [2][3][4][5][6][7] and a few here [8][9][10][11][12][13]
I will let you know if there are a few more I would want to archive. Nidoking (talk) 12:17, 27 September 2022 (UTC)
This is out of scope for this noticeboard. You can export pages via Special:Export. Agent Isai Talk to me! 12:19, 27 September 2022 (UTC)
But it gives me an error when I try to import them or request them to be imported. Nidoking (talk) 12:20, 27 September 2022 (UTC)
And also I need the database name for The New Reception WIki in order to request a import. Nidoking (talk) 12:25, 27 September 2022 (UTC)
As a general rule for database names: the wiki's url, + wiki at the end. So, thenewreceptionwikwiki (yes it is redundant, due to how the wiki name works). --Raidarr (talk) 13:33, 28 September 2022 (UTC)
Weird how the wiki is closed even though edits have been made there recently. Bawitdaba (talk) 22:48, 29 September 2022 (UTC)

CheckUser request for several sockpuppeteers

The AVID Wiki has several recent sockpuppeteers, both old and new, some of which were previously IP banned somehow were able to create new accounts. These include:

The user is a sock of Jackson, if you compare his edits to his other accounts; he edits "vanity card" articles. I would like to request an IP ban on this user, considering he has a long history of sockpuppetry on the site. Given the pattern of his account creations, he could be creating a new one this or next week.

Sockpuppet of Ngozikal, who was IP banned from the site back in late July. Taking a look at her real name, it matches with her other sockpuppet accounts (Jordan K Ene).

As for the newer ones:

Above are sockpuppets of Erichomi/Logo Archive Collection Company. Notice how his edits relate to logos from the 1900's to 1920's, as well as their real names matching.

The above listed are sockpuppets of AngryGrandpaFanatic2007. Their real names match (they at least read "Amadaeus-Jeffrey") and edits are identical, replacing info on some pages with false ones. Camenati (talk) 15:48, 29 September 2022 (UTC)

@Camenati Do you want these users to be blocked globally indefinitely? If you really think that these users are puppets, you can block the wiki where they are puppeteers, I wish you a healthy day. (if the user is puppeteering on more than 1 wiki, they can go up to the global ban) Hey Türkiye message? 17:54, 29 September 2022 (UTC)
Considering sockpuppet accounts on the AVID wiki have been globally locked, yes. Additionally, I am seeking a lock on Jackson's IP address on said wiki as well as Ngozikal's new address. As for the other two, I think they should be warned since they are relatively new to Miraheze. Camenati (talk) 18:22, 29 September 2022 (UTC)
@HeyTürkiye As I was expecting, Jackson made another account today: Jackson's Way. Also, simply blocking the sockpuppet accounts will not solve the situation if the sockpuppeteers will continue to make newer ones in the foreseeable future. Camenati (talk) 20:08, 30 September 2022 (UTC)
@Agent Isai Pardon my interruption and massive list of requests, but I would like to alert you and other stewards about the site's wave of new sockpuppet accounts from old and new sockpuppeteers. I not only have the above alt accounts I requested for CheckUser, but there are a lot more that abused accounts on the AVID Wiki today. These include:
The users listed are sockpuppet accounts of FijiAxe3AndADog. They obviously have similar names, plus their real names include "Malachi". If you take a look at their edits, they typically insert false information. Also here are:
  • LogoUrban (sockpuppet of Erichomi, one of the sockpuppeteers I reported above).
  • Jayden Quenano Time (sockpuppet of Chuck Quenano, who was previously IP banned on the site 3 months ago. It recently ended.)
Thank you for your investigation. Camenati (talk) 01:22, 1 October 2022 (UTC)
@Camenati Of course, this global blocking will not be resolved, but if the ip address range (I'm guessing from X.X.X.X/16) blocks the respected miraheze stewards, I guess this solution will be comfortable, don't worry too much about them as they will appear again even if we block them. Hey Türkiye message? 08:03, 1 October 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for the report. The accounts have been investigated and  locked accordingly either based on technical evidence, clear behavioral evidence or both. Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:40, 4 October 2022 (UTC)

Finished local election with no active bureaucrat

Good evening Stewards,

I have started a local election last Friday (post on the Talk page from September 23th), I added a notification on the main page too (here). I have nominated my self for bureaucrat, there has been no reaction from anyone. In fact there have been no activity from any registered users but me (Special:RecentChanges).

Is this the proper process to gain bureaucrat rights? There are no local bureaucrats active that i know of. Gregor0 (talk) 00:19, 1 October 2022 (UTC)

 Non-steward comment This is indeed the correct way to gain bureaucrat rights. ZeusDeeGoose (talk) 00:30, 1 October 2022 (UTC)
I've assigned the rights for 3 months temporarily due to the fact that there were no votes in favour but also no opposition. Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:59, 4 October 2022 (UTC)

Dormancy Policy Exemption for Dívasa Wiki

I'd like to request a Dormancy Policy exemption for Dívasa Wiki (thenationstate.miraheze.org).

The wiki was made to serve a roleplay / worldbuilding community that has since shuttered. There is plenty of information to be preserved, yet not much more to add.

Please consider this request for archival purposes. Many in the community see lessons from it (content is read by people) and have gone on to participate in other communities of similar nature. MLastCelebration (talk) 18:07, 1 October 2022 (UTC)

Dormancy Policy Exemption for Sagan 4 wikis

Hello, I am an administrator on both Sagan 4 wikis (sagan4.miraheze.org and sagan4alpha.miraheze.org) and I would like to request a dormancy policy exemption. Sagan 4 has a history of going through dead periods lasting months or even years and of narrowly avoiding becoming lost media, and the ability to edit the wiki is only granted on an approval basis due to a 15 year history of abuse, so we don't really get a lot of edits to keep it bumped up. As the wikis serve as an information archive with a lot of content, they should not be subject to the threat of deletion as a result of these periods of inactivity. Disgustedorite (talk) 07:23, 2 October 2022 (UTC)

mh:wretchedyoutubevideos:Wretched YouTube Videos Wiki

I am an administrator on this wiki, but DuchessTheSponge closed the wiki because he thought that DarkMatterMan4500 (a bureaucrat on the wiki) had closed the wiki and made a new wiki. While this did indeed happen, as DarkMatterMan4500 closed the wiki on June 1, 2021 and created a new wiki. However, DarkMatterMan reopened the wiki on November 14, 2021, and later imported pages from the wiki. As a result, I feel this closure should be undone. I have tried contacting Duchess about this but they have not yet responded so I will post this to see if I can get it done faster. FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 10:44, 14 September 2022 (UTC)

Reopen The New Reception Wiki, so i could handle it.

Hi. I have one question. Can you reopen this wiki called The New Reception Wiki? This is the wiki: https://thenewreceptionwiki.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page

It was closed for Content Policy Violation but i want to reopen it because I want to make sure this page will not violate the Content Policy. This includes the deletion of forks, creating pages from scratch than importing them. Another reason why I want to get the control of the wiki is because the bureaucrat has shown to be incompetent. CJWorldGame32125 (talk) 17:21, 5 October 2022 (UTC)

Hello. Please request this at Requests for reopening wikis. Have a good day LovingHaydeL (talk) 19:53, 5 October 2022 (UTC)
@LovingHaydeL: This is incorrect, the OP has been directed here by a Steward from that exact page. RfR is not for wikis manually closed for particular reasons. As to this request, I'm unconvinced by the unsubstantiated claim of incompetence (frankly I've seen no evidence that the person making the request is any more competent) and tbh this doesn't solve the issue that the wiki barely has any idea of what it really wants to be in the first place. But this is not a final call, which must be made by an active Steward. --Raidarr (talk) 20:34, 5 October 2022 (UTC)
@CJWorldGame32125: Did you have to do this? I was already dealing with this myself. Money12123 (contribs | sandbox | CentralAuth) 03:48, 6 October 2022 (UTC)
FatBurn, i did this because i saw no edits from you. Do you have evidence of you dealing this? CJWorldGame32125 (talk) 05:02, 6 October 2022 (UTC)
It's also funny that you say that WE (average users) should delete the forks, not you. You, along with the admins, have the ability to delete the forks, not us. CJWorldGame32125 (talk) 05:04, 6 October 2022 (UTC)
The admins are the ones who imported the pages. Also, I was talking to Agent Isai about it on their talk page. Money12123 (contribs | sandbox | CentralAuth) 06:44, 6 October 2022 (UTC)

Requests for Comment/ApexAgunomu global ban appeal

As has been explained two times before: The global ban RFC did not contain an appeal system. The RFC was created before Miraheze had a local policy on global bans, and only de-facto existed. I structured mine based on existing precedents elsewhere, and remembering that each is unique as it is a custom RFC. For mine, I used the Wikimedia system which states: A global ban's purpose is to prevent harm to [Miraheze] projects when a problem cannot be addressed by the community through less restrictive means, and consequently is usually permanent. A global ban is not [...] meant to provide a “cool down” period. I did this because the user has already received far too many chances already and exhausting them all immediately. As explained by user Sario528, Apex refuses to change their behavior. Apex has been given more warnings and more second chances than anyone I've ever seen on any wiki project, and every time they go right back to trolling. It is far past time to stop giving Apex special treatment and just ban them.. ApexAgunomu had been doing this for two and a half year and in addition this was clearly on purpose with intent to harm, as seen in the original RFC. The purpose of the global ban was to be the final nail in the coffin, because it was clear there would be no change and this issue could not be addressed through any lesser means. (Note that ApexAgunomu is Bugambilia and Skiyomi)

Remember, part of the reason that this global ban happened in the first place was because "power-users" kept trying to give them infinite chances with the user never changing their behavior, ever. This continues to be the repeated pattern of that. Nobody discusses "appeals" for PlavorSeol or Lawrence-Prairies. While this initially may have been because users thought that the behavioral concerns were not as serious, as new information arose it became clear it was just as bad if not worse, and this was not merely a case of "disruptive editing" or similar, which also led to them being banned from IRC (which of course they continue evading). I'm very concerned that this continues to be a pattern of giving ApexAgunomu infinite chances.

Remember that Dmehus lost Steward permissions for doing this, so I would not recommend that other Stewards start trying it as well.

In addition, the closer wrote, writing No further appeal may be considered until 3 months pass. Given the extremely serious things laid out in the original global ban RFC including intentional malicious behavior and harassment that had been going on for two and a half years, an appeal in 3 months would be completely absurd. Nothing would have changed then. This especially applies when the behavior has been going on for over ten times as long as the suggested appeal period.

In summary:

  • Each global ban is different, and in this case there was no "appeal" doctrine in the global ban which de-facto existed at the time and is intended as a permanent status, including other users adapting the global ban as a permanent status
  • These "appeals" might be being used to give leniency/more chances in violation of the community's requests as outlined above (which is what the global ban was supposed to stop in the first place - you're undermining the entire RFC)
  • Even if there was an appeal, 3 months would be an absolutely ridiculously short time especially given the relative concern. If there was an appeal (which there isn't), it would be in at minimum 3-5 years if not longer, not just a few months when nothing will have changed

As such, I find that the Stewards are going against the RFC here and this RFC closure needs to be changed. In addition, any further "appeal" RFCs can and should be speedily closed as procedurally invalid. Naleksuh (talk) 15:03, 7 October 2022 (UTC)

Honestly, I could see where you're going with this, but in my opinion, I'd prefer for the user in question to not come back, EVER! It's just how I'm feeling about this. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 15:12, 7 October 2022 (UTC)
People can change. It's like saying that a 21-year-old should be fired for something they did as a 9-year-old; it's a matter of the time between what they did and if they grew up and matured from the time off. -- Bukkit[cetacean needed] 18:53, 7 October 2022 (UTC)
It's not like saying that at all. In this case, it's a continued pattern of misbehavior for years which is still completely recent. It's not one single thing and it's nowhere near 12 years ago. Naleksuh (talk) 20:05, 7 October 2022 (UTC)
Hey, thank you for raising this, I'm going to respond to each of the concerns you've raised in detail here.
  • "The RFC was created before Miraheze had a local policy on global bans, and only de-facto existed" is true - though when policy is absent, the community has the final say on what happens. In this instance, the community did vote to apply the new global ban policy to all existing community bans. Could you provide some proof that the community explicitly voted that this ban was unappealable and that future policy could not be backdated either?
  • "consequently is usually permanent" - usually is the keyword here. It's not always permanent.
  • "because "power-users" kept trying to give them infinite chances with the user never changing their behavior, ever. This continues to be the repeated pattern of that." - could you advise me how following global policy which states a ban is appealable after 3 months and Stewards should forward these appeals onto the community where possible, an infinite chance and a repeat of a situation where a steward continually used their powers to prevent action being taken against the user?
  • "Nobody discusses "appeals" for PlavorSeol or Lawrence-Prairies" - Stewards are unable to pass on appeals for discussion if we do not receive them.
  • "so I would not recommend that other Stewards start trying it as well." - You would not recommend Stewards trying to follow community policy because Dmehus had his revoked for not following community policy? This seems contradictory and leaves me to question what stewards should be doing if its to both not follow community policy and not ignore community policy.
  • "an appeal in 3 months would be completely absurd." - Global ban policy as voted for by the community states... 'the minimum time before an appeal can be considered will be of 3 months'. This is therefore the minimum period of time, not the absolute "you can appeal in 3 months and we'll discuss it again". In fact Stewards have advised the user concerned not to appeal for at least 12 months, despite 3 months being the minimum in policy.
  • "in this case there was no "appeal" doctrine in the global ban which de-facto existed at the time" - Policy was voted to apply retrospectively in instances where global bans were done before the policy came into force - and one of the provisions was an appeal clause to formalise the process to ensure consistency. There being no appeal clause in non-existent policy only means the community have entire say over what happens with regards to an appeal - which the community indeed exercised.
  • "These "appeals" might be being used to give leniency/more chances in violation of the community's requests" - the community wants to hear appeals as they voted to hear such appeals. I am unsure how it is a violation of the communities requests, to follow the communities requests to hear appeals after a minimum 3 month period.
  • "you're undermining the entire RFC" - which part? Is the user still banned? Yes. Did Stewards pass on an appeal that the community requested to hear? Yes. Seems like both RfCs have been enacted in full force and not undermined.
  • "I find that the Stewards are going against the RFC here and this RFC closure needs to be changed" - having reviewed all three RfCs, I feel the closure is in line with current policy as explained above, therefore I am not going to change the closure at all.
  • "any further "appeal" RFCs can and should be speedily closed as procedurally invalid" - they seem procedurally correct..
John (talk) 18:46, 7 October 2022 (UTC)
Could you provide some proof that the community explicitly voted that this ban was unappealable The original RFC outlines this as a last resort and does not include the ability for the user to appeal. While global bans can be overturned, this would not be for "change of heart" or similar.
olicy was voted to apply retrospectively in instances where global bans were done before the policy came into force If this did happen, I wasn't aware of it, but I don't think it has nor should it. It came after the user appealing sanctions and immediately going back to the behavior, being stuck in an infinite loop of this going on forever and ever. The global ban was essentially to put an end to it; the final nail in the coffin. "Appealing" it would defeat the purpose of it and have the exact same situation we were in, and essentially meaning there is no way to have a user banned. If this is the case, I need to amend the RFC. As explained by Sario528, Apex has been given more warnings and more second chances than anyone I've ever seen on any wiki project, and every time they go right back to trolling.. There is no reason it will be differently, especially not when the appeal time is 3 months. Naleksuh (talk) 20:04, 7 October 2022 (UTC)
  • "and does not include the ability for the user to appeal." - Indeed it appears to do so, I don't think this is being disputed.
  • "While global bans can be overturned, this would not be for "change of heart" or similar." - Correct, it would be overturned based on community consensus - likely following an appeal, likely as outlined in policy.
  • "but I don't think it has nor should it." - Here is the discussion.
  • "The global ban was essentially to put an end to it" - I believe the global ban has achieved this, as disruption has severely been limited.
  • ""Appealing" it would defeat the purpose of it and have the exact same situation we were in, and essentially meaning there is no way to have a user banned." - If a user is not banned, how can they appeal the ban? The user is banned, an appeal of the ban is a request to re-review the level of sanctions in place. An appeal is not automatically granted, and the decision of an appeal can be "you remain banned" - therefore a user would remain banned if the appeal is rejected. This sounds like a system where a user is banned, until the community decide they are no longer banned. Similar to how the community decide a user is a steward, until they decide they are no longer a steward. If the basis of "actions can never be appealed", would that then not mean all decisions are permanent - including the RfC that was closed here - meaning you can't appeal it or request it be overturned/reviewed as you have done.
  • "If this is the case, I need to amend the RFC" - You are free to open up further discussions as necessary.

Another CheckUser request for some sockpuppeteers

I am back with more sockpuppet accounts to report on the AVID Wiki. These include:

All listed above are sockpuppets of Erichomi as indicated by their real name "Logo Archive Collection Company".

The accounts in question are sockpuppets of Prodigy012. Compare their edits to Prodigy's both on the AVID Wiki and Wikipedia through his Nottie Productions and Hottie Productions accounts and you will see some patterns: one of them have behavioral matches (ending requests with "very please" or "pretty please") and they frequently add categories to other articles (most notably ones relating to the UK and categories related to companies such as Beyond International). Other socks include:

  • NinaFan493544855933 (sock of Ngozikal, who was IP banned on the site for a year since July and for some reason still managed to make a few accounts this and last month)

CheckUser request

Hello, please check the IP of these users for the Russian Polandball Wiki:

Edits and behaviour of the aforementioned users are extremely similar, and due to that many contributors suspect that both accounts belong to the same person which is causing regular conflicts. Please compare their IP addresses so we can sort out this problem.

Thank you! Aphrodite (talk) 16:13, 8 October 2022 (UTC)

@Aphrodite: Thank you for your report! For future reference, it would be advisable for you to provide us with diff links to the editing patterns which you think overlap and show that a user is a sock. While another CheckUser may have declined, I accepted this request as I've been keeping my out on four users within that list for suspicious behavior. Following a thorough sweep, I can confirm Kosovo is behind the following:
  • Анти-Украина
  • Новый Хомчик
  • Дерево
  • Республика Минерва
  • Великое Княжество Лагонское
  • Синий Экран Смерти
  • Azerbaijani Fan
  • Ремув Пицца!
  • Республика Острова Роз
  • Силенд
  • Мышка Катюша
  • КНС1234554321
  • KisluhinVsevolod
  • Великое Княжество Лагонское
  • Синий Экран Смерти
  • Фанат Мистера Европы Три

I have globally locked these accounts so you don't have to block them. I have warned Kosovo to stop doing that or that they will face a global lock and I locally blocked their IPs. If socks return, please let us know.

Additionally, Италия and Швейцария are the same person but are not related to Kosovo. Thank you! Agent Isai Talk to me! 05:25, 9 October 2022 (UTC)

Global ban for Blubabluba9990

Blubabluba9990 has obsessively attempted to keep a certain set of wikis up, and has hoped it will return, per this, this, this, and this. (Unrelated to the whole reception wiki mess, this user has also screeched in all caps before.Whistler98 (talk) 21:13, 8 October 2022 (UTC)

The user in question has been the subject of two global ban RfCs, both of which have failed. The disruption he's caused is out of incompetence, which shouldn't be handled by sanctions. Tali64³ (talk) 21:46, 8 October 2022 (UTC)

we tried two times, both of these have failed. This also resulted in a user being unable to connect with them anymore. LovingHaydeL (talk) 00:36, 9 October 2022 (UTC)
Blubabluba9990, while perhaps rather insistent, has broken no global policy. Stewards do not have the power to globally ban a user as that would constitute an abuse of our own power. If the community wishes to initiate a global ban RfC, an eligible user may do so. The previous global ban RfC did not fail but rather was closed as invalid because the nominator was ineligible to start the RfC. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:48, 9 October 2022 (UTC)

While i think i find Miraheze a lot better than QP, i do not find it worth being active since it's closure. I thought it would be fun contributing after QP's closure, but i find nothing much to do now. I thought of this for a couple of months, but now i am sure i want my account to be locked.

Use this section to request Stewards grant you local administrator or bureaucrat on a wiki without active/any bureaucrats (or unwilling bureaucrats if they refuse to certify a successful vote) following a local election. We normally don't grant permissions without a local election for advanced rights like this so you'll need to make a local election unless you accidentally demoted yourself.

If you accidentally removed your own permissions, you can also use this section to request readdition.

Important: Decyclopedia and the Content Policy

TL;DR: Decyclopedia contains lots of porn without a warning except for this one template that contains porn. Breaking the content policy

Full text: Decyclopedia decyclopedia.miraheze.org, contains pornography with no warning on the front page. The only warning is on pages with lots of porn, the {{SexyArticle}} template. This template contains 2 images, including the infamous gif file (a woman ma$turba+ing in an infinite loop). Pornography is on at least 20 pages, 13 of which have said template.

There is NO warning that this site contains pornography, until you see that file. (there are other files containing p0rn, this is the most notable one) This breaks the Content Policy.

Also, I got banned until October 2023 for removing the pornography. The content policy states “there must be a warning on the front page for NSFW wikis”. There isn’t, until you see NSFW images. 101.185.66.160 08:46, 21 October 2022 (UTC)

@101.185.66.160: The reason why I have been removing this thread is because (A.) we don't typically take responses from an IP. (B.), I would highly encourage you to at least login to an account if you have it and/or create an account, and (C.), you are not helping the situation yourself.

Please read what you are removing before you do so. Users are not and never have been required to be logged in to make reports or the page - indeed, meta wiki in general - would be protected to only permit logged in users. "We don't typically take responses from an IP" is not a policy or practice of any kind and the only reason that de-facto happens is because it is rare. --Raidarr (talk) 12:25, 21 October 2022 (UTC)

A brief check makes it clear that yes, the pornography page in particular is an offender of this.

Just a reminder that Decyclopedia has 293 articles, only 13 of which have NSFW material. That's only 4.4% of the wiki. The rules don't specify what amount of the wiki needs to be NSFW for the rules to apply, but it shouldn't be such a small percentage. Also, trying to shut the wiki down for having NSFW material? That sounds like cancel culture to me. Tali64³ (talk) 15:21, 21 October 2022 (UTC)
Also, this user was blocked on Wikimedia for cross-wiki abuse. Tali64³ (talk) 17:00, 21 October 2022 (UTC)
That's irrelevant here as the target is an entire range and not a specific IP. Agent Isai Talk to me! 18:36, 21 October 2022 (UTC)
I don't see how it's irrelevant, given that the IP is in that range. Anyway, discounting articles I just deleted for being copied from other wikis and redirects, there are 180 articles on Decyclopedia. 13 of those are marked with the equivalent of the NSFW template, which is about 7.2% of the wiki. Given the relatively small amount of NSFW content and that the content is not Decyclopedia's main focus, I believe that the wiki should not fall under the rules set for NSFW wikis. However, it's moot anyway because of the announcement I made on the wiki. Tali64³ (talk) 18:55, 21 October 2022 (UTC)

I do concur with the above that you preferably should have an account so that your queries aren't taken as something not serious but nevertheless, I will answer your question. Decyclopedia does not seem to be incurring in a Content Policy violation because the section talking about putting warnings and such is directed at wikis whose sole focus is something NSFW (like a NSFW TV show or game). However, it is a general convention that they should no lewd content ever be posted on a main page so Stewards will remove that on any wiki. If a page contains NSFW content, it would be common courtesy to warn users about that but it is not a requirement. Agent Isai Talk to me! 21:16, 21 October 2022 (UTC)
The warning contains NSFW content. Anyway there isn’t a warning for pages that contain 1 NSFW image. Also, I got blocked for a year for removing the pornography so it can comply with Content Policy rules. 101.185.66.160 21:21, 21 October 2022 (UTC)

Obviously, the template is meant to parody legitimate NSFW templates. It's not a warning, just an indicator that the page contains lots of NSFW content. Tali64³ (talk) 21:33, 21 October 2022 (UTC)

I changed your block to 1 month, since I realized that 1 year is way too much for simple vandalism. Anyway, if your removal of NSFW content damages the quality of the article, then it is vandalism. Tali64³ (talk) 21:55, 21 October 2022 (UTC)
“Damages the quality?” I actually was removing pornography because I didn’t want Decyclopedia to break the content policy.

Proposal to close Requests for Comment/Wikis with a fork of Wikimedia

While this is probably not necessary to do I am proposing that the RfC in the title of this thread be closed. Not only has this RfC attracted no contributions by way of votes but it also is vague and unclear as well as the fact that it runs in parallel with a currently open RfC regarding the Content Policy.

Requesting Steward assessment for a local election on Miraheze Developers Wiki

Hello, I am making this request in my capacity as a bureaucrat for Miraheze Developers Wiki.

I request that a Steward please assess consensus for a local election, which has now been open for around 3 weeks, also around 3 weeks with no additional activity or voting on it. Due to my own personal conflict of interest as I voted on it, and the fact that it is tied in a matter of votes, I am unable to close it myself. Also, having discussed this with Reception123 in their capacity as another local bureaucrat (not in their capacity as a Steward) they recommended it might be best to have it be assesed by Stewards, due to the close nature of the vote.

Votes are not the only thing to consider when closing any election, but rather more-so comments, which the supporting votes (including my own) gave none, so it is not an easy local closure. Especially seen as how only one user actually gave a full explanation, consensus would be somewhat difficult to determine even if I wasn't a conflict of interest.

Thank you. Universal Omega (talk) 02:05, 21 October 2022 (UTC)

Dormancy Policy Exemption of Unreal_Neo Encyclopedia

Hello, I am Rosalina129, the creator of "Unreal_Neo Encyclopedia" (WikiURL: unrealneo.miraheze.org) . I have managed this Wiki myself for a long time, but due to my busy study and work recently, I have no time to manage and maintain the normal operation of Wiki. I wanted to apply for Dormancy Policy Exempting, because the Wiki already creates information about many characters (personal information of characters in games or videos, OC personalities, and other attributes, etc.). The Wiki is also managed by a few close friends of mine, but they are also busy with their work and don't have much time to maintain it. Finally, thanks to Miraheze for providing the platform! Sucrose Fans Rosalina129 13:20, 11 October 2022 (UTC)

Let me just add a little bit.
This Wiki is actually used to store the information of characters and original stories in our community. In fact, it stores not only the information of characters in our community, but also some other valuable articles. (Probably nonsense, but it is used to store character profiles from videos in our communities, original stories created by members of our communities, etc.) Sucrose Fans Rosalina129 13:33, 11 October 2022 (UTC)
I would like to ask if any Stewards have seen my request... Sucrose Fans Rosalina129 08:45, 13 October 2022 (UTC)
@Rosalina129: I have now seen your request and granted the exemption. -- Void Whispers 19:49, 15 October 2022 (UTC)

Concern about a declined wiki request

A month ago, I created a wiki request for a wiki known as Creative Wikis Wiki, but it was declined by DarkMatterMan4500 because "it would create problems later on." When discussing it with him further, they said they declined it because they believed it would have libelous information or contain hateful content, which I questioned as it is a positive wiki. They then further stated that they "wouldn't trust a title like that at first glance anyway," which I asked why, to which they did not reply. They have not responded in a month despite my attempts at continuing the discussion. I would like this wiki request to be reconsidered, as I do not plan on adding any libelous information or hateful content, nor will I keep it if it is already there, and users will be allowed to choose whether or not they can have a page on the wiki. It is intended to be a positive wiki. Money12123 (contribs | CentralAuth) 20:55, 11 October 2022 (UTC)

 Non-steward comment I would probably hold off on this request for now as I've seen other Reception Wikis got declined as their status is currently disputed. --Zeus (talk|contribs|accounts|email) 21:23, 11 October 2022 (UTC)
@ZeusDeeGoose: There's nothing saying they've been banned though. Money12123 (contribs | CentralAuth) 23:16, 11 October 2022 (UTC)
Even then, I'd still hold off on it. --Zeus (talk|contribs|accounts|email) 23:35, 11 October 2022 (UTC)
Also, I should note that wiki creators can and should be skeptical, especially for user reception wikis, an extremely controversial subcategory of reception wikis. --Blad (talk|contribs|accounts|email) 21:46, 12 October 2022 (UTC)
Well, I'm trying anyway. Money12123 (contribs | CentralAuth) 23:57, 11 October 2022 (UTC)
It is the near universal consensus of all wiki creators that reception wikis are not to be accepted at this moment due to the heated and disputed nature of them. In the future, they may be accepted again but for now, it seems most wiki creators are weary of them. Agent Isai Talk to me! 00:14, 12 October 2022 (UTC)
@Agent Isai: When will they be allowed again? Money12123 (contribs | CentralAuth) 00:52, 12 October 2022 (UTC)

So they are banned from being requested? I knew it... Nidoking (talk) 14:29, 12 October 2022 (UTC)
@Agent Isai: I must say that I take issue with your comment that "It is the near universal consensus of all wiki creators that reception wikis are not to be accepted at this moment". The reason is that I do not think that is it necessary right for wiki creators to take a hard position on a topic being 'banned' from being created without community consensus. If 'reception wikis' are not disallowed by the Content Policy or by a community vote I do not think wiki creators should be taking it upon themselves to impose a blanket ban on all reception wikis. If these are likely to violate the Content Policy that is acceptable but if there is an innocent reception wiki it should not simply get declined because of the fact that it is in the format of a so-called 'reception wiki'. I will admit I have not seen any actual examples of what is being declined but the statement suggests to me that there is a blanket ban imposed without a community vote or consensus. DeeM28 (talk) 14:43, 12 October 2022 (UTC)
by that quote nido he means that reception wikis will still be allowed. Just not right now. Maybe in the next month. The user who loves human heads on alien/animal bodies in cartoons for no reason (talk to me uwu!) 15:53, 12 October 2022 (UTC)
Most of the recently requested reception wikis are things like Qualitipedia revivals, or embark iffy topics such as criticizing the work of a certain person, hence why I said that based off what we saw, it seems to be the consensus of most WCs to decline these sorts of requests. Reception wikis outright are not banned as I've told Nidoking and other users various times, we have accepted some since Qualitipedia was closed however, it seems WCs are being more cautious when approving wikis which appear that they may cause either Content Policy or Code of Conduct issues such as Qualitipedia forks, wikis which criticize topics which may fall into a gray area, and so on. Some users seem to think we've outright banned them when in reality, we are being cautious so as to not approve wikis which attempt to revive the Qualitipedia wikis or which will be Content Policy issues. Agent Isai Talk to me! 18:10, 12 October 2022 (UTC)
@Agent Isai: Then in that case, what's wrong with Creative Wikis Wiki? Money12123 (contribs | CentralAuth) 20:32, 12 October 2022 (UTC)
The third provision of the Content Policy states, "Miraheze does not host wikis with the sole purpose to spread unsubstantiated insult, hate or rumours against a person or group of people." Even if the proposed wiki would have a positive focus on wikis and users, it's still important to have referencing to support any claims made. Of course, you can edit the wiki request to assure wiki creators that pages will contain references. Tali64³ (talk) 21:30, 12 October 2022 (UTC)
@Agent Isai: and @Tali64³: I was gonna use references anyway. Money12123 (contribs | CentralAuth) 23:04, 12 October 2022 (UTC)
What I'm trying to say is that you should edit the request to include a sentence stating that the pages will contain references, and resubmit it. You've made it clear that referencing will be a part of the wiki, but a wiki creator wouldn't know that unless it's stated in the request. Tali64³ (talk) 23:35, 12 October 2022 (UTC)

I want to massively delete ("nuke") the comments of some trolls

Recently, mh:giantess:Giantess Wiki has been the target of troll attacks. I am deeply grateful that the Miraheze staff has pretty much reversed all that vandalism and globally blocked the trolls, but there is still one problem: the comments (https://giantess.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:Log/comments). The comments they have left are a spam (external link) to a malicious website (which has malware). I could delete them manually, but that would take some time, and I would like to know if there is a more efficient way to mass delete those comments. Aurumargelium (talk) 05:28, 13 October 2022 (UTC)

There is no tool we can use to mass delete them unfortunately. While it would have been easy if the wiki had the more modern CommentStreams enabled, the old Comments extension provides no way to mass delete comments and there is no tool either available to local administrators or Stewards to mass delete spam comments which is actually rather silly. Agent Isai Talk to me! 05:51, 13 October 2022 (UTC)
So, what I have to do is to go to Special:ManageWiki/extensions#mw-section-other and check the "Commentbox" box, right? Aurumargelium (talk) 06:11, 13 October 2022 (UTC)
No, select CommentStream, Commentbox is equally as outdated. Agent Isai Talk to me! 04:21, 14 October 2022 (UTC)

Possible hacker attack

I will be as brief as possible. From Enciclopedia Dramatica (a well known troll nest) they have been attacking mh:giantess:Giantess Wiki. They started vandalizing articles and files, as well as massively spamming the comments with links to malicious websites (with viruses), but now it seems they want to go beyond simple trolling. Recently a user named "xix" entered to Giantess Wiki's Discord server and from his Discord account (xix#1337) I could see his official GitHub (https://github.com/xixmen) and YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEoqwpoJIGqLJyqkxSB21TQ and https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCR6GsqF23pAy5H0YM-xJQxg) accounts. Analyzing his GitHub account, it is apparent that he is a hacking enthusiast (to be more specific, for creating spam bots and multi-accounts). I know I sound paranoid, but Miraheze staff better be forewarned. This "hacker" could find some Miraheze vulnerability and exploit it, and most likely use it for the creation of multi-accounts with different IPs. If any anomaly occurs, I will inform you. Aurumargelium (talk) 01:42, 15 October 2022 (UTC)

@Aurumargelium: There is legitimately no way a talentless hack like that guy would even be remotely close to even being able to exploit Miraheze's vulnerabilities for their own personal gain. If that were the case, then they would be kicked off for a Terms of Use violation. I've had to revert the files back to what they were originally for over a week now, and this has also occurred roughly 5 to 6 months ago as of this writing. Not sure if that guy is responsible for this massive attack, but it could be a possibility. @Agent Isai and Reception123: Any thoughts on this? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 01:57, 15 October 2022 (UTC)
I really hate that wiki platform, not only it harasses people, they also doxx people's personal information, are racists towards other people's race, raid other people's servers, and lastly have illegal material on the site. CloudFlare needs to boot them off, and not allow them on the web ever again like Kiwi Farms... Nidoking (talk) 18:35, 17 October 2022 (UTC)
Thank you for informing us. As DarkMatterMan4500 said, it's highly unlikely for a kiddie scripter to find a vulnerability in our systems. With your permission, is it okay for me to implement anti-spam measures on your wiki? Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:00, 15 October 2022 (UTC)
Yes, please. I want that anti-spam measure. Aurumargelium (talk) 02:15, 15 October 2022 (UTC)
I have enabled StopForumSpam which should automatically block 99% of proxies. I also revoked the ability to upload from normal users and moved it to the autoconfirmed group (users who are older than 5 days and have at least 10 edits) which should thwart the disgusting vandal image attacks. I also removed a few dangerous rights from the user group such as autoconfirmed, noratelimits, and skipcaptcha, all of which thwart built-in anti-spam measures. I would suggest perhaps also revoking the ability to comment from normal users and moving it to autoconfirmed users which should thwart some more comment spam.

Just talked to Reception123 about Score. It seems that there is nearly no interest at all in the extension. Looking through Phabricator, no one has enquired about the extension since it's been disabled. Looking through the Discord/IRC chat logs, it seems only 2 users have expressed interest in Score—1 in late 2020 and another in 2021, both were on the Discord server's #general channel and both users have since deleted their accounts or left the server. If security and resource constraints are an issue and seeing that there seems to be very, very low interest in it, I would suggest leaving the extension disabled if we cannot ensure security and if resource constraints will be an issue once more. Unlike Citoid/Collection's removal where we requested community input as they had some (albeit, also very low) usage, Score currently has no usage and interest in it seems to be very low. If a user were to request Score in the future, perhaps adding it can be considered but for now, seeing that there is virtually no interest in it, I believe it would be okay for the extension to be left disabled.

At least someone—probably Universal Omega—will have to look into the Shellbox experiments once again. If Score's long-belated arrival doesn't come to pass as a Christmas gift, then it might be too soon.
P.S. Another one or two site enhancements are in our wiki's future—but as always, that's for another thread. Routhwick (talk) 15:32, 1 November 2022 (UTC)
Score is active on Wikipedia, so obviously there is a solution for the security issue, otherwise Wikipedia would have been hacked by now. Just because I do not file a phabricator request every week that does not mean that I would not love to have Score back on my wiki. Of course there are not that many Lilypond editors around, even in Wikipedia there is only a small number, --Lily talk and I will listen · Lilypond Wiki 07:43, 5 November 2022 (UTC)

Adopting REWW

A month ago, I asked what I should do to become a bureaucrat on Reception Wikis Wiki (REWW), and I was told to start a local election and give it two weeks. I did so, and it's been a month and has not received any replies. What should I do now? Money12123 (contribs | CentralAuth) 20:39, 13 October 2022 (UTC)

Was a notice posted on the main page or anywhere else of high visibility? Agent Isai Talk to me! 04:22, 14 October 2022 (UTC)
@Agent Isai: Oh. I forgot I could do that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Money12123 (talkcontribs)
@Agent Isai: It's been two weeks since I updated the sitenotice, and users seem to be pretty approving of me being a bureaucrat. Could I please become a bureaucrat now? Money12123 (contribs | CentralAuth) 19:21, 28 October 2022 (UTC)
Actually, I think Raidarr and/or DMM are better candidates for becoming a bureaucrat. TF3RDL (talk | contribs | FANDOM | Wikipedia) 23:19, 2 November 2022 (UTC)
Bureaucracy was already granted. I'm not personally interested in operating this wiki. --Raidarr (talk) 02:02, 3 November 2022 (UTC)
@Raidarr: Actually, it hasn't been granted. Money12123 (contribs | CentralAuth) 20:27, 3 November 2022 (UTC)
Hmm I thought it was, apologies. --Raidarr (talk) 20:58, 3 November 2022 (UTC)
@Agent Isai: You still haven't given your opinion on this. Could I please become a bureaucrat now? Money12123 (contribs | CentralAuth) 23:16, 9 November 2022 (UTC)
I've closed this request as successful. Cheers -- Void Whispers 22:16, 13 November 2022 (UTC)

Close RfCs where no local bureaucrat is available

I am requesting that Stewards close my 2 RfCs on Reception Wikis whenever possible, as there are no local bureaucrats to close/act on them. --Blad (talkcontribsaccounts) 16:07, 23 October 2022 (UTC)

Both RfCs will be closed once it reaches the 5 day mark or at least 1 or 2 more days depending on if something SNOWballs. As for the first RfC however, I would not feel comfortable closing it as successful due to the nature of the wiki. It would be very premature to close any of these RfCs at this moment, especially Bluba's revocation. Agent Isai Talk to me! 16:54, 23 October 2022 (UTC)
The 2 RfCs have now hit the 8 day mark, can they be closed now? --Blad (talkcontribsglobal) 22:12, 30 October 2022 (UTC)
This is  resolved, for reference. --Raidarr (talk) 15:44, 9 November 2022 (UTC)

Miscellaneous

Instructions/Read before making a request 

If your request doesn't fall under any of these categories, you can add your request or question here.

I would like to be globally renamed.

Hello, I'm Kris Valdespino. I designed the Audiovisual Identity Database logo and want people to credit me in the wiki more accurately. I want my account to be renamed to "KrisValdespino." Thanks. Pudsp (talk) 18:21, 14 October 2022 (UTC)

Please request this at Special:GlobalRenameRequest. Thanks, --Blad (talk|contribs|accounts|email) 19:07, 14 October 2022 (UTC)
This appears to have been  completed. --Raidarr (talk) 18:36, 9 November 2022 (UTC)

Ban of information about users

While I get that wikis with negative information about users are banned, or at least, frowned upon, are users allowed to have pages about them on wikis if the pages are written in a neutral way and all information is sourced? Money12123 (contribs | CentralAuth) 21:18, 19 October 2022 (UTC)

 Non-steward comment I don't see why not. The current Content Policy only prohibits slanderous claims against (groups of) people. As you said, the content would be sourced, and I believe the page you are talking about was adequately sourced and not really all too negative. --Blad (talkcontribsaccountsemail) 21:30, 19 October 2022 (UTC)
If I am aware Real Life Villains Wiki has pages that are not fully sourced. And some pages are about Internet Users. Nidoking (talk) 19:26, 20 October 2022 (UTC)
Tell the sysops to delete them if they're problematic. There's a delete template somewhere. --Blad (talkcontribsaccounts) 20:27, 20 October 2022 (UTC)
@Money12123: Indeed, per clause 3 of the Content Policy what isn't allowed is "unsubstantiated insult, hate or rumours against a person or group of people." It also says that content which is "fairly balanced, meaningful or substantiated by independent referencing" is allowed. If pages are "neutral" and "sourced" there is no issue and there wouldn't be a violation of that clause. Regarding Real Life Villains, if there are pages which are not sourced they should indeed either be sourced or removed. Reception123 (talk) (C) 10:32, 29 October 2022 (UTC)
I should point out though that wikis that seem like 'reception wikis' are currently on hold per the RfC. While not explicitly defined there, it would usually be a wiki that states positive and negative qualities about users for its main purpose. Reception123 (talk) (C) 10:35, 29 October 2022 (UTC)
At least 95% percent of the pages on Real Life Villains are not sourced. Nidoking (talk) 11:43, 31 October 2022 (UTC)
If that's true, then open another thread here for potential content policy violations. What you are talking about is completely unrelated to what FatBurn is. --Blad (talkcontribsglobal) 12:16, 31 October 2022 (UTC)

Exemption policy for "RisingBeat Wiki"

Hello, I am the owner of the RisingBeat Wiki. For several months, my staff and I have extensively followed and covered the English release of this game, as can be seen on the wiki. However, the English version of the game shut down on May 2021. Although we have attempted to shift our focus from just the English release to also include the original Japanese game, it is undoubtable that since the game's closure, our activity has gone down significantly. In addition, I have several other projects that I'm preoccupied with (including admining other Miraheze wikis) and have not been able to devote as much time to this particular wiki.
Still, our wiki is probably one of the most comprehensive documentation of the game, especially as it includes story text from the game that is no longer accessible due to the game's closure. My worry is that with the dormancy policy and the possible deletion that can result from it, this runs the risk of losing all of this documentation. Therefore, I would like to formally request a Dormancy Exemption for this wiki. Thank you for your consideration! Kiwibasket (talk) 15:25, 31 October 2022 (UTC)

Apologies for prodding, but I was wondering if there was an update to the possibility of dormancy exemption? Kiwibasket (talk) 11:46, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
