CheckUser requests[edit | edit source]

LittlePerson10@metawiki[edit | edit source]

 Dealt with, this is a holdout from a long string of related accounts including persistent vandalism and other antics across kugeln wikis, polandball and meta that have recently been locked. --raidarr (💬) 17:11, 2 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Werdoland@harkipediawiki[edit | edit source]

There is no basis to conduct a CheckUser on the user in question ("arrested for deleting pages" hardly even makes any sense); please stop filing frivolous requests or you may be blocked by a Meta administrator. Tali64³ (talk | contributions) 05:22, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Vanish request?[edit | edit source]

Status:  Done

Disclaimer: Please note that I may not look into things, I did so today so I hope that'll suffice. I just didn't realize permanent vanishes can't be done by Stewards, but I don't intend to go to Trust and Safety, so yeah.

I'd like to vanish this account (I don't want to make another one at this moment - only if I feel like it, not sure if this is valid): User:WannurSyafiqah74 (account I made since 2018 or 2019, I believe?)

Since I figured I should send a request here, I thought it was done via email, whoops. I just haven't felt like being here for months until now, so I figured I might as well say something now.

I'd also like to know if I can change my username to WNH74, as I can send a vanish request. Or is that not possible? I haven't looked into these things so sorry if I sound stupid.

Update: I found out it doesn't save my new username, just changes it to "vanished account" if I do vanish it. I didn't look into it at the time so I'm sorry for all of this small trouble. Either way, I'd like a permanent vanish, please.

Thanks! WNH74 (talk) 12:58, 15 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Also sent a username request, sorry for all of the other ones from before. I'll just scrap the ideas for the crappy old ones in favor of something I've used before ("WNH74" on Wikia/Fandom (eugh)). Hope this makes sense? Yeah. Also thanks! WNH74 (talk) 13:03, 15 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(non-steward comment) To clarify, you are requesting a change of user name without making the account vanish, correct? Waki285(talk|contrib|log|CA|Target) 13:26, 15 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Before the vanish. I'm just sending and asking this out of curiosity, so you can tell me how this works. WNH74 (talk) 14:59, 15 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The rename has been performed, though why you want a rename before a vanish eludes me. Please let us know if you'd like us to proceed with vanishing your newly-renamed account. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 21:12, 15 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, I thought it'd save the username or something. Sorry for being confusing, I'll just look it up to see how it does work. But anyhow, yeah, please do proceed with permanently vanishing my account. WNH74 (talk) 07:58, 16 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I looked into the "disabling an account" page, thought it kept your username- I'm dumb, whoops. Well, either way, at least I stopped being lazy and read into it... after E-Mailing you too about it, whoops... my sincerest apologies. --WNH74 (talk) 08:03, 16 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Vanish completed. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 17:42, 16 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! --115.164.213.243 08:36, 18 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(In revision 402539, you effectively stated that you can't go for a permanent vanish. Can you clarify this on your update that says "Either way, I'd like a permanent vanish, please"? Thanks.) BlankEclair (talk) 12:01, 16 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, I forgot about fixing that... before I wanted to try and correct myself, I didn't read into it more and I realized permanent vanishes can only be performed by Help and Safety. That's all. --115.164.213.243 08:36, 18 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm User:伍伍凌 the bureaucrat of the registered Wiki, this was a dramatic incident, see here to understand why the IP was blocked:

Global Lock request for an abusive username[edit | edit source]

The user's name is abusive to the PRC and CCP leader Xi Jinping -- Honglan233 (talk) 11:02, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Agree, it against first part of ToS. Policied (talk) 11:59, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think it should be give a block on Meta. Policied (talk) 11:59, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Honglan233 and Policied: Could you 2 explain in detail on what you mean? Elaborate on that claim, as that account hasn't been active for months now. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 12:23, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This name is against first part of Username policy, and I think it should be give a block on meta. Reason is illegal user name. Policied (talk) 12:26, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Policied: So I used Google Translate, and it translates to "Tiananmen Square in 1989 (Stupid Xi Jinping)", and I don't really see a violation of that policy. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 12:31, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Stupid Xi Jinping is against the rule. In Chinese, "傻逼" is a word for abusive. The good translation is "fxck". Policied (talk) 12:33, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The username is contain politics Policied (talk) 12:34, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Policied: You know, something just isn't adding up. Your account seems to be brand new, but you seem to be a little familiar with this site. I also find it strange how you felt the need to write this, and from the looks of this comment to Reception123, I'm starting to get a little suspicious. But even then, if you are really Gongxiang01 (which I don't find hard to believe, making it quite possible), then you basically just gave yourself away. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 12:47, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I was know Miraheze in someone's wiki's talkpage. I'm active in that wiki. Policied (talk) 12:52, 17 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Permissions[edit | edit source]

Administrator/Bureaucrat access[edit | edit source]

Instructions/Read before making a request 

Use this section to request Stewards grant you administrator or bureaucrat rights on a wiki without any active 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 re-addition.

To make a request, press "edit" next to the "Administrator/Bureaucrat access" section header, copy the following code and place it at the very bottom of this section. Replace every section as needed:

=== Username@<subdomain>wiki ===
{{Permission request
 |status    = <!-- Do not remove this! -->
 |wiki      = <!-- Replace with subdomain of wiki -->
 |user name = <!-- Replace with username -->
 |discussion= <!-- Replace with link to discussion, if any -->
}}
Include any comments here ~~~~

Other access[edit | edit source]

Instructions/Read before making a request 

Use this section to request Stewards grant you minor local access such as autopatrolled, confirmed, or rollbacker on wikis without any active bureaucrats.

You may also use this section to request a Steward grant you a Global IP block exemption.

To make a request, press "edit" next to the "Other access" section header, copy the following code and place it at the very bottom of this section. Replace every section as needed (change <subdomain>wiki to global if requesting an IP block exemption):

=== Username@<subdomain>wiki ===
{{Permission request
 |status    = <!-- Do not remove this! -->
 |wiki      = <!-- Replace with subdomain of wiki -->
 |user name = <!-- Replace with username -->
 |discussion= <!-- Replace with link to discussion, if any -->
}}
Include any comments here ~~~~

Removal[edit | edit source]

Instructions/Read before making a request 

Use this section to request Stewards remove rights from a user (such as bureaucrat) following a local revocation or resignation, or to request they remove user rights only they may modify for any reason as defined by group revocation policy. You can also use this section to request bureaucrats remove your own rights on a wiki or on all wikis (including global rights).

To make a request, press "edit" next to the "Removal" section header, copy the following code and place it at the very bottom of this section. Replace every section as needed (change <subdomain>wiki to global if requesting a Steward remove your rights on all wikis or global rights):

=== <username@wiki> ===
{{Permission request
 |status    = <!-- Do not remove this! -->
 |wiki      = <!-- subdomain of wiki -->
 |user name = <!-- user -->
 |discussion= <!-- Replace with link to discussion, if any -->
}}

The Internet Classroom[edit | edit source]

Status:  Done
  • Reason(s): I am the instructor of a class on web design and Internet technology. One of my assignments every year is to give students the experience of editing a wiki page. We've been using tic.miraheze.org for several years, but it was deleted at some point over the last year. I thought I'd been cleared for an exception to the Dormancy Policy, but I guess not. That can be revisited later. --Ikidre (talk) 21:37, 15 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is now  Done, thanks. While I don't see a documented exemption from Dormancy Policy, the seasonality of planned editing is clear and I will grant one on these grounds. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 01:55, 16 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Status:  Cannot be undertaken
  • Reason(s): A lot of the pages on my wiki are fairly long and contain in-text citations to sources linked at the bottom of the page (see here for an example), so I would like the Previews extension to be enabled so that readers can hover over an in-text citation and see a preview of what it links to without having to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page. -Kon (talk) 23:09, 20 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You can do this yourself without the intervention of a steward at ManageWiki. Save with mw:Extension:PageImages and mw:Extension:TextExtracts extensions enabled, and after reloading, the checkbox should be active. --Waki285(talk|contrib|log|CA|Target) 23:54, 20 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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[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[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.

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[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[reply]

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 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[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[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[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[reply]

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.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

I cannot find a wiki from WikiTide[edit | edit source]

Status:  Cannot be undertaken

Hello! I often use a wiki from WikiTide(WT) called "山东理工大学中文Wiki". but after WT was merged into Miraheze, I tried to use its original url (https://sdut.wikitide.org) to watch, but it told me not found. So I wanna find the wiki.

CSBigCaptain (talk) 09:08, 19 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It appears this wiki fell into inactivity and did not transfer over to the new platform. Thank you for bearing with delays in reaching a determination, we were unable to properly assess state of remaining backups, etc. until very recently. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 23:18, 19 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Forgot to update my userpage before I vanished, and I can't add a topic to my talk page, so I might as well add it here.[edit | edit source]

Status:  Done

I don't know if it's fine to add something to my userpage, because I'd rather make a new account if I feel like it, but anyhow- can you add this?

I used to be called WNH74 and WannurSyafiqah74, unfortunately. Had to rename before I realized vanished users get automatically renamed, so that's why there are two redirects. I'll also not move to a new account immediately, because I'd rather just do that if I'd want to, just... don't steal my username, okay? Thanks.

I have a disclaimer, and I'd rather not just temporarily unlock, just to only edit something so little and then vanish again. That's all I'll say. Thanks. (hope this makes sense too.) --115.164.213.243 08:48, 18 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

By the way, this is why I'm talking here for a bit, while logged out. I also put signatures on my contributions in case anyone else is on this IP. Not sure if this counts for userpage edit requests, so correct me on that. 115.164.213.243 08:51, 18 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Looking back, this is kind of embarassing, but oh well. This'll be the last time I'll be here on an IP. Or two IPs, to be exact. (I also felt like being here because I wanted to check real quick, then I'll be inactive for a good while) 115.164.217.36 19:36, 18 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah, I know. I just wasn't sure if it was breaking Meta conventions (Requests for Comment/Endorsement of Meta conventions#Proposal 3: Editing other users' user pages), but I'll let it slide since it doesn't really make too much sense to put you through the gauntlet of unvanishing, editing, and revanishing just to add a single factual sentence.

Changing the scope of my wiki[edit | edit source]

Status:  Done

I would like to change the scope of my wiki, Dot-Zip Wiki, to one about something else, Dollavita Worldd. As I am not focusing on this particular project anymore and instead a new one; however i feel it wouldnt be the best idea to create a completely new wiki and leave this one completely abandoned, and therefore a waste of space because of that, i would like to shift the scope of this wiki to one about said project. The fundamentals (like articles being dedicated to all things about this topic) will generally be the same too.

It would also help to change the domain to https://dollavitawikia.miraheze.org/ and the database name to dollavitaworldwiki :) feel free to ask for anything else if needed Shouganai (talk) 06:18, 20 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Consider this like writing a wiki request for the first time -- you've told us that there will be a change in scope and that contents will be much like the prior wiki, but very little about the wiki's actual topic, which we need to understand to make a determination. If you could tell us a bit more about the new topic, it'll go a long way to help us understand if it fits within content policy. :) --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 16:31, 20 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
oh ok .. sorry about that i havent asked for something like this before so i wasnt really sure
rewrite
I would like to rebrand and change the topic of my wiki, Dot-Zip Wiki, to one about Dollavita World, an upcoming life simulator game about housing Dollies on a small island. The scope will pertain to all content about this game, including game mechanicss, items, updates, and anything else that may be relevant.
I am mostly choosing to change the topic as I feel it would not be a good idea to create an entirely new wiki and leave one fully abandoned rather than use the abandoned wki to shift the scope, as I am less involved in the old topic than the new one.
It would also be helpful to shift the subdomain to https://dollavitawikia.miraheze.org/ and the database name to dollavitaworldwiki . :) Shouganai (talk) 23:45, 20 June 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
