Wiki reopening requests
Welcome to wiki reopening requests!

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.

To make a request, copy the following code, and place it at the very bottom of this page. Replace every section as needed:

|wiki = SUBDOMAIN_HERE <!--Replace this with the subdomain of the wiki. Do not include the "" part-->
|bureaucrat = <!-- Are you a bureaucrat on the wiki (usually also the 'founder' of the wiki)? IF THE ANSWER IS YES, DO NOT CONTINUE WITH THIS REQUEST! INSTEAD GO TO Special:ManageWiki ON YOUR WIKI AND UNCHECK THE "Closed" BOX -->
|reason =
<!-- Leave everything below as it is -->
|user = {{subst:REVISIONUSER}}

The wiki was originally closed for Content Policy violations (log action); however, given this new context, I suppose another review may be in order. @Reception123: see above, as you are the Steward who originally closed the wiki. Tali64³ (talk | contributions) 01:47, 27 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Content policy violations on the wiki are extensive and not the result of vandalism, several of which were undertaken by the crat/administrative team. This wiki will not be reopened, the administrative team should seek other hosting solutions if they wish to continue the project. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 23:02, 1 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
The only known administrator was User:DBS_Historian but he just disappeared after making an edit on the home page. I had to redo all of the edits some users did a while ago because he's literally the only person with admin rights and also the crat. He's in part responsible for the current lack of activity this site has. I can do my part but unfortunately I am not admin. I don't recall which were undertaken by the crat/administrative team as you mention though. AlphaofAwe (talk) 07:37, 1 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
FYI, you can gain bureaucrat and/or administrator rights by holding a local election on the wiki (this is currently moot, but just for future reference if you need it). BlankEclair (talk) 08:09, 1 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Admin here. I had requested the reopening of this wiki here before, and was told that only the Steward who closed it could reopen it. However I was unable to get a response from the Steward so I am not sure what I could do otherwise.
I had expressed my wish to clean up the wiki of content policy violations, which I do not believe were done by me as @NotAracham claims. I admit I have not been around enough and I would be willing to look into giving administrative rights to other users. DBS Historian (talk) 18:34, 6 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  • Wiki: (On wiki: ManageWiki (e, n, p, s) • ManageWiki logRecent Changes - On Meta: Wiki requestManageWiki/core)
  • Username: AndreeaSmile3 (userrights)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): yes
  • Reason: This is the wiki where I kept most of my results from some online contests and it's really important for me since I still need to keep track of info. I'm the only one who's updating this wiki and every time I try to access it, it tells me that it has been deleted (probably from inactivity) and I also can't access its ManageWiki page so it would be amazing if it could be reopened.

This is now  Done, thanks. For future reference, undeletions should be done via the (Un)Deletions page for speedy handling. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 22:36, 30 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Status:  Not done
This wiki's community has made clear their intent to emigrate to self-hosting and delete the Miraheze wiki once things are settled there. As such, this won't be done, and I recommend you contribute at the wiki's new home instead. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 15:39, 11 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Pinging @Raidarr as this wiki was previously a high target for vandalism/copyvio issues, they had specified conditions for reopen, outlined here. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 15:16, 18 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
please gave me some update about this. R1F4T (talk) 10:21, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
See this statement. On top of it however I would set a high standard for coming up with a game plan, ie, more than the bar of just requesting a wiki, because this project directly competes with already well-established independent wiki projects and I'm uncomfortable letting it slip back in a cycle where random people play with it for a while and the cycle repeats again. Something like having an existing group, clear ideas how to update its contents and reach out to the community to develop, and so forth. --raidarr (💬) 18:44, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Switching this to on-hold as a credible plan is needed from user in their reply. Will close this as not done at end of month. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 16:52, 25 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
(Non-steward comment) I don't have the authority to approve or close this, but personally I would highly recommend contributing to the main minecraft wiki, as it's very active and there's no real point in trying to maintain your own wiki on your own, it would be best for the community as a whole to have all the people who want to contribute to a minecraft wiki to be working on a single wiki, as to not waste editors time ╚PixDeVl╝ (Talk Contributions CentralAuth) 10:32, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I want to create more pages so I want to reopen this wiki. Kadofa (talk) 18:05, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Kadofa: Allpedia was locally closed by its operators, and at any rate is no longer a wiki in compliance with platform policy.  Not done. --raidarr (💬) 18:41, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  • Wiki: (On wiki: ManageWiki (e, n, p, s) • ManageWiki logRecent Changes - On Meta: Wiki requestManageWiki/core)
  • Username: PretzelBubbleTea (userrights)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I, along with a friend, are creating a wiki centered around the virtual pet mobile game Pou, developed by the indie game company Zakeh. Pou consists of taking care of an alien by feeding, cleaning, and playing with the creature. We want to document information about the game, such as features, minigames, characters, etc. Anyways, hope you have a great day!

There is no action for stewards to take, wiki is open. Closing as redundant. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 16:37, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  • Wiki: (On wiki: ManageWiki (e, n, p, s) • ManageWiki logRecent Changes - On Meta: Wiki requestManageWiki/core)
  • Username: Taigavia (userrights)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no):
  • Reason: The community of the LimbusCompany Fandom Wiki is seeking to move over to Miraheze. It appears that the existing wiki here on Miraheze with the LimbusCompany title has finally reached 195 days of inactivity, and this is the perfect chance for us to migrate from Fandom to Miraheze. It's also been a popular request amongst other members of the community across other discords and Reddit for us to migrate to Miraheze, but we would like to have the main LimbusCompany subdomain for this transition.

Wiki is not closed, any user may make changes. Closing as redundant. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 16:35, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

This is now  Done, please ensure an edit is made promptly to avoid re-closure. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 16:05, 21 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Status:  Done
This wiki is already open, simply make an edit to reset the inactivity banner. Closing as redundant, but if you're attempting to gain local bureaucrat permissions, please follow the process under Local elections and then make the request via Steward_requests/Permissions. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 18:44, 27 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for email with additional context, appointing to bureaucrat given narrow, org-specific wiki scope and lack of active bureaucrats. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 23:48, 2 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  • Wiki: (On wiki: ManageWiki (e, n, p, s) • ManageWiki logRecent Changes - On Meta: Wiki requestManageWiki/core)
  • Username: Dutchy (userrights)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No (though I am not sure why I am not as I did request for this wiki to be created)
  • Reason: Due to a busy few months, I was unable to continue working on this wiki project. I would like to resume my efforts and hope the wiki can be re-opened. Additionally, I plan to invite my fellow roleplayers to join and contribute, helping to keep the wiki active. To prevent future closures, I would also like to request bureaucrat status or perhaps you can point me in the right direction to request this. Thank you in advance.
Dutchy (talk) 11:39, 14 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
(You can request bureaucrat over on Steward requests/Permissions. I don't think a local election is necessary since you're the wiki requester and there doesn't appear to be a demotion) BlankEclair (talk) 11:47, 14 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
There was likely an error on initial setup that lead to you not getting rights, I will triage this right here (no need for another form) as soon as the reopening completes. --raidarr (💬) 13:43, 14 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Dutchy:  open & rights fixed. --raidarr (💬) 13:47, 14 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

You are a bureaucrat of the wiki (mh:munsterquest:Special:UserRights/Hellocharles). You can uncheck the "Closed" checkbox here: mh:munsterquest:Special:ManageWiki. Closing as not done. BlankEclair (talk) 10:56, 15 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

  • This is the last remaining backup of our wiki and the extensive fan universe we've created, and I want to make sure that it can survive and grow. I'm still in touch with the majority of the userbase and aim to encourage some to return and edit, continue the fanon we've been creating.
