Thank you for letting us know. Spam accounts that aren't actually making edits are likely harmless and don't need to be reported. Please report only if they manage to bypass the abuse filter and make edits that become public. However, if the creation is too continuous, please report it to us for IP blocking.

Vanish my Account[edit | edit source]

Status:  Cannot be undertaken

The TSPortal does not work (Error 500). I have recently created an account and requested a wiki, the response indicates this was a mistake. If my account does not exist, make it vanish, I have no intention of using or editing Miraheze.--Shermapper (talk) 21:40, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Although you did receive a response asking for more details, I am not sure what is wrong with the response you received. You replied to the wiki creator with If the comments in the original request are not specific enough, there is no point in continuing. These 'Request Comments' only makes sense if you did not even bother reading the original Request, and you are therefore acting in bad faith. This reply you gave to the wiki creator doesn't make any sense. Wiki creators ask for more details if your original request was too vague and they want more information so they can know if it should be approved or denied. They did bother reading the original request and found it to not contain sufficient information, and as such, they asked you for more. I don't know what's wrong with this.
You're free to delete your account if you really want to, but if you actually want a wiki, just go back and add the information that Rodejong requested you to add. コレイ (talk) (contributions) 22:40, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Shermapper: I've answered this also in the request but for clarity I add it here as well: Hello again. I've read it, but you can not expect from a wiki creator, to know everything about Sports, Fantasy writing, Games, Religion, Encyclopaedias, etc. To me this is an unknown segment, so you need to be more specific. Sell it to me. We don't just create wiki's without any form of expectations. That is why I also asked if you read our Content Policy and Terms of Use.
Another thing is, that we all at Miraheze are volunteers, spending our free time to help people like you. We do not get paid for this. So I would ask of you to please take a different tone with me.

Imoyokan-scratch is not a sockpuppet of Html123456, and this request is inappropriate. Additionally, IP user 240A:61:57:30AA:881D:7EFF:FEDB:E9C7 has been blocked on the wiki for vandalizing the "さかおりに抗議するウィキ" ( For these reasons, I believe this request should be rejected.--Salvare (talk) 13:20, 7 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree with User:Salvare. Imoyokan-scratch is trusted by Html123456 on so,He got Administrator's permission on that wiki. He isn't Html's sock. --Ama-ryu (talk) 01:47, 8 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you all for information. The requestor did vandalism in the wiki, so this is likely retaliation, nevertheless, it worth consideration. Upon investigating sakaoriwiki, it seems its purpose is to protest actions of w:ja:User:さかおり (an administrator of jawikipedia), furthermore unauthorized scope changes were identified, this violates CP and needs closure. Apart from dealing with vandalism in the wiki, Html123456 has history of violations, I've issued final warning, and any further violations will result in lock.

Regarding UAP violation, they have already been warned on Meta's talk page. Unless there is a second instance of abuse, they will not be locked. Additionally, I could not find any evidence of UAP violations by them in the wiki.

While Imoyokan-scratch is mentioned by name, they only assisted in dealing with vandalism in the wiki, with no evidence of CP violation. Considering their posting tendencies (especially in mypediawiki), it is unlikely that they are sockpuppet of Html.

Overall, this request is processed as  Not done. --1108-Kiju/Talk 14:48, 8 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Global lock for Html123456 (2)[edit | edit source]

Status:  Done

Now, this is his second request. First, he made significant scope changes On Three Wikis he owns, one of which was a personal attack wiki, he vandalized the wiki using sockpuppet, and he burdened the wiki creator by persistently resubmitting inappropriate wiki requests, which was his behavior at the time of the previous request.
The first request ended with 1108-Kiju issuing him a final warning and no lock. Now, what he did with this was to import the content of the content that was closed as a personal attack wiki into one of his own wikis, block 1108-Kiju as Cross-wiki abuse when it was deleted by 1108-Kiju, and re-import it. (It has now been deleted again)
This log shows "2024年5月8日 1108-Kijuにより不当に閉鎖され、暫定的にhumorpedia上へ移転。("May 8, 2024: unjustly closed by 1108-Kiju and moved on humorpedia on a temporary basis”) which suggests that he has no understanding of CP and no desire to improve it.
He has also verbally abused and made intense physical threats against 1108-Kiju, who CU-blocked him on another wiki. and also do copyright infringement from another Miraheze wiki.
It is clear that he no longer heeds any warnings and is in WP:IDIDNTHEARTHAT and will continue to cause damage to Miraheze if left unchecked. Waki285(talk|contrib|log|CA|Target) 11:56, 11 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You'll have to contact a local wiki administrator (either on your talk page or on Meta if you do not have talk page access locally) in order to appeal your ban on that wiki; Stewards do not intervene in local wikis affairs unless global policy violations are occurring.

Leerdoman74 is back[edit | edit source]

Status:  Action taken

Hi. I'm not sure if this is the appropriate noticeboard for stuff like this, but does anybody remember Leerdoman74? That user who sent personal attacks to users like DarkMatterMan4500, AkihitoZero5454, and MarioMario456 just because they corrected him on his opinionated logic and he also used sockpuppets to evade his ban years ago? Last year, he came back to this site and he's still continuing to evade his bans by going to Weirdcyclopedia to use IP accounts to angrily insult me like he's done to me and various other users who confronted him in the past:

And now recently he's just returned once again to my wiki to not only continue his ban evasion he's been doing for years, but also start edit wars and play the victim by accusing me of "harassing him" even though in all actuality, he's the one who started the whole harassment. Plus, Leerdo even got one of my dear friends frustrated because of the edit wars Leerdo himself started on one of my friends' pages, which made me really sad:

Can any Steward do something to globally lock Leerdoman's IP accounts so that he may finally give up his long-term abuse because of his long history of ban evasion and bullying? SuperStreetKombat (talk) 07:06, 20 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We don't 'lock ip accounts' technically speaking.
I used a more effective local block for the ipv6 and am prepared to go global if the need arises, but one-off like this doesn't quite meet the bar to go global yet imo. If it extends beyond the local blocks, turns into actual account creation or he digs up more IPs to utilize then I will more likely throw the book at him. Tbh any block of this nature probably isn't going to get him to 'finally give up' if it's been this long but we'll show him the door if the dribble continues. --raidarr (💬) 08:50, 20 May 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 ~~~~

So, there's a wiki that isn't considered inactive because it keeps getting vandalized, and the only admin has left Miraheze and left the community this wiki is supposed to be about.

So, we can say, that existed before
The wiki, has violations done by actual admins like including minor's ages and countries without permission from them or their legal guardians. The only active admin is also putting his rules to say that no bad grammar and spelling is allowed, while having the sentences to be filled with grammar and spelling mistakes. He is banning people he doesn't like for doing things outside of the wiki, who don't even break any rules. He's also a Peruvian that barely even knows English grammar and spelling, he's a guy who has no idea on how to even run or moderate a wiki.

Person16384@bfdiwiki[edit | edit source]

Hello. I found out there was a wiki for Battle For Dream Island a few months earlier. However, the only administrator on the wiki has been inactive since November 2023, and the wiki is currently severely disorganized with almost no templates present. If BFDI was not a popular fandom, the wiki would have most likely been closed, again due to the lack of organization. I was wondering if it was possible for you to give me administrator and bureaucrat for the BFDI wiki on Miraheze, as I would like it to flourish much more than it currently is. Person16384 (talk) 15:39, 3 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Person16384: In order to take command on the wiki, a local election must be filed per the linked page. After 5-7 days the conclusion can be brought here and this request can proceed on the Steward end; otherwise Stewards generally do not just give rights on request even with rationale such as this unless the process is done. --raidarr (💬) 00:01, 10 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello It's me Nexovia I am working on the Olympics Wiki but it's founder and the whole community is inactive so I have the Sysop rights but I couldn't perform all actions needed so could you provide me the crat rights and I have tried conducting local elections but the community is also inactive so could I get the rights.Nexovia (talk) 09:43, 11 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Nexovia: the election should proceed for 5-7 days and I would recommend you do the following to spruce it up:
  • Add a signature to your request so it is clear who you are if someone such as the founder takes a peek
  • Give your request a title so it has a clear section, and a discussion subsection for anyone if they do appear to leave feedback

São tome@polandballfr[edit | edit source]

Hello! I want to be a bureaucrat for this wiki so I can expand it and make it at the level of other Polandball wikis in other languages. You see, I see a great opportunity in this wiki, since it could make several French-speaking users learn about the Polandball community and in turn contribute to the wiki. One of my biggest contributions was creating an Infobox for most of the articles on the wiki.

The wiki for now does not have many active users, it only has 2 Spanish-speaking users that I invited to contribute by creating articles, so I need a requirement to be a bureaucrat, but I think this is optional when wanting to be a bureaucrat of a wiki with few taxpayers. That would be all from me, I hope you can read this and accept me as a bureaucrat of this wiki São tome (talk) 22:28, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nexovia@royaltywiki[edit | edit source]

The Royalpedia is a Wiki for monarchy related problems and I also work on same monarchy related Wiki named BritishRoyals and seen it the Bureacrat and Sysops are inactive there I decided to conduct and local election but there was no active community there are two peoples much active and still contribute but I think they are not interested in the post I had nominated one of them cause they were more active than me but they took no interest so I couldn't do anything and the main founder and sysop both are inactive since years so I would request the either Bureacrat or Admin rights cause these rights are needed to make wikis more better so I am requesting the rights here. --Nexovia (talk) 05:53, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Nexovia:, why is the closed template used to indicate 'in progress' for an election that was just posted today to become bureaucrat? You requested interface admin there, changed it to bureaucrat then basically closed it, but are asking for 'either Bureaucrat or Admin' here also today. This is an unusual use of the local election process; at least, a request for the rights you want should individually go for 5-7 days and only be closed once reviewed by a local bureaucrat or in this case a Steward.
Noting also that this wiki should come under review: a cursory look at recent changes indicates copy pasted content from Wikipedia. I didn't look thoroughly but this seems to be the core of PennState2023!'s editing there. --raidarr (💬) 12:21, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

At a glance basically every page is either lazily rewritten or straight up stolen content from Wikipedia. For this reason Stewards will discuss if the wiki will even continue to be in operation, then get back to election if yes. --raidarr (💬) 09:23, 3 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

With apologies for the delay and regardless of the content problem, the 5-7 day period can now begin. Keep in mind that no votes = unsuccessful, because there is a local community which can give its opinion and apathy is not agreement. There should be support among the editing base for you to get advanced rights. If successful, something that will be expected is effort to clean up the content which has been just ripped off Wikipedia without attribution. Tackling this problem now could improve your election chances. --raidarr (💬) 00:19, 4 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

183231bcb@rainversewiki[edit | edit source]

The Rainverse Wiki was forked from Fandom on March 8 of this year. The person who created the fork, AwesomeGamerX, has made a total of 1 edit , in which he renamed the main page. During the first two weeks he made several changes to the ManageWiki settings that were requested of him via Discord DM, but he has stopped doing so. His most recent action, on April 8, was to make me an admin. He did not comment on his reasons for doing so. He has not responded to my Discord DMs asking him to make either me or another editor a bureacrat, despite still being active on Discord.

There are three active editors: Me, AvgHelper, and BlankEclair. All three of us want there to be an active bureacrat to enable extensions we need, create new namespaces (we want a namespace for each comic series), and add interwiki prefixes. Five days ago (either April 17 or April 18 depending on your time zone) I created a local election to elect a new bureacrat. The election was advertised widely as possible, including on the main page, the official Rainverse Discord server, and the Rainverse Wiki fediverse account (which I boosted with my main fediverse account, since that has a lot more followers). Despite the publicity effort, AwesomeGamerX did not comment on the election, either publicly or via Discord DM.

All active editors voted, and the unanimous opinion is to elevate all three active editors to bureacrat status. I am therefore requesting that the stewards make all three of us bureacrats, or at least make one of us a bureacrat so we can promote the other two people.

Thanks 183231bcb (talk) 23:56, 22 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Jazzedpineda@genericcookinggamewiki[edit | edit source]

The wiki founder and only bureaucrat, AltandeseCreator, has been inactive for a little over 100 days. A local election is not suitable because I (Jazzedpineda) and AltandeseCreator are the only users (not including stewards, "Abuse filter", and "MediaWiki default"). I am requesting bureaucrat rights because I am currently in the process of moving the Generic Cooking Game Wiki from Fandom to Miraheze. Jazzedpineda (talk) 02:16, 24 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You are not a member of the wiki and therefore cannot accept this. --1108-Kiju/Talk 03:37, 25 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The Generic Cooking Game Wiki was last edited by some IP users who made nonsensical articles. Most of the edits were made by AltandeseCreator. It has two articles: "Croissant" and "Office", the latter of which has nonsensical content. I am not planning to make edits there right now because the first thing I want to do with the wiki is to import a database dump from the corresponding Fandom wiki. Jazzedpineda (talk) 05:05, 25 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The only bureaucrat of the Fandom wiki has been inactive for 9 months, and I can no longer contact him/her because his/her Discord account got deleted. Therefore, I cannot become an administrator of the Fandom wiki. This is one of many reasons why we, the Generic Cooking Game community, chose to move to Miraheze. I got approval from some Fandom wiki administrators and the game's creator to start the migration process. Jazzedpineda (talk) 05:06, 26 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The conversation about moving the Generic Cooking Game Wiki to Miraheze happened on Discord. Here is the conversation: Jazzedpineda (talk) 09:19, 27 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, The Fandom wiki has an interactive map for the game's restuarant. Miraheze doesn't have an extension that can make Fandom-style interactive maps, but ImageMap exists. This is why I converted this request into a request for bureaucrat rights, because I want access to ManageWiki and enable the ImageMap extension. Don't worry because once I have bureaucrat rights, I can make myself an administrator. Jazzedpineda (talk) 02:41, 29 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

5-7 days may be technically enough but activity within the month will be a determining factor and these various attempts to gather permissions on wikis are also noted; you have already acquired bureaucrat on a whopping 6 still living wikis some of which are fading off. Infoboxes seem like something that require no elevated permissions to deal with unless you want certain extensions enabled, theming could initially be trialed in userspace, and the homepage appears to be unprotected, so the reasoning for the request is a touch sparse. The local election page recommends a bare minimum: practice accounts for the entire circumstance. At the very least I doubt this will be closed favorably with no consensus on the minimum date. --raidarr (💬) 11:46, 1 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DualPlay1@ballmediawiki[edit | edit source]

AgentIsai (former steward of Miraheze) and SchizoACC are a bureaucrats that aren't active now on Ballmedia. AgentIsai as you know left the Miraheze and i don't have a contact with SchizoACC. We did a local election in a private discord group. Although someone else will try to take over who wasn't very active in Ballmedia (less edits than me). I think that Ballmedia is very strategic point for -ball wikis that require care. Although I think that another steward should also look after Ballmedia, as was the case before. DualPlay1 (talk) 17:38, 2 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Marking this as  Not done for now; in order to figure this out I have resumed my role as Consul on Ballmedia (the last one, hadn't even realized I had it still until recently) and will be using that to try and guide reform including both you and perhaps Kymi should there be participation from that end as well. What comes of it will have to be determined locally and through existing channels, as we've been doing recently already. Note that a private discord vote does not suffice for stewards to assign rights on wikis. --raidarr (💬) 22:20, 4 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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):

FjattarRefreshment@mockupediawiki[edit | edit source]

FjattarRefreshment is an admin on Mockupedia, but he vandalized my userpage for no reason (if my userpage looks not vandalized, thats mean I had revert that, see the page logs please for evidences). I had to revert that but he reverted it again, causing reverting war between I and FjattarRefreshment. The userpage should be written by user itself tho. I'm also an admin on Mockupedia and i tired to revert it back again. So the wiki need to remove FjattarRefreshment from administrator, but the only bureaucrat, Vladislav Fesko is inactive enough to do that. Also he even delete my bureaucrat local election on Mockupedia talk:Community Portal.

(Non-steward comment) As an additional note of conduct, The portal (mockupedia:Mockupedia_talk:Community_portal, case sensitive) was also deleted entirely back in Nov 23, and renamed to 'Poor protesters' objects'. I am not familiar with Steward polices on local permission revocation and will not pretend to be, I just include this for clarification and ease of finding the typo linked page(although I don't in any way think it would be incorrect to say this is in no way conduct becoming of a local sysop, I leave all judgments of the matter to Stewards). ╚pixDeVl╝ (Talk Contributions CentralAuth) 12:15, 28 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is a case that has been bounced on the SR for some time and the issues reported during the 'dark age' continue to be taking place. Stewards know where to find me if they'd like further background on this long-running mess. Imo the key here is the local election being subverted which ensures no transfer of power to a more pro/active top management can take place. If Fjattar is not cooperative upon intervention to ensure an election can take place then a sysop removal is probably warranted.

Now I agree that a user page is private space, and others shouldn't interfere with it. But if there is no agreement, then perhaps taking it outside of the wiki is the way to go forward.

Break My Case Wiki[edit | edit source]

Status:  Done
  • Reason(s): I created the wiki a while ago, but I had no idea how to edit a wiki and had no one else to ask for help so it was closed due to inactivity. There's now a bigger fanbase for the game and we have a group of people who are ready to start working on it properly, so we would like it to be undeleted. --Imaimaimai (talk) 05:44, 18 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Reason(s): this wiki is still used. we need to edit it from time to time. users often have pages printed on PDF to use locally, but this wiki is the single source of truth, as it were.

I just tried to log in to make an edit and found out the Wiki was deleted. Our last Closed Wiki notice was in Jan 1st so I'm wondering if you'd kindly agree to undelete.

Thanks in advance. --Malveira (talk) 11:05, 19 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dormancy Policy Exemption Request (Cholecalciferol)[edit | edit source]

Status:  Not done

I would like to make a Dormancy Policy Exemption Request for the wiki Cholecalciferol.

While I will keep updating the wiki the data that is collected there is valuable for future readers and researchers. I also refer people to the resource as required. The pace of updates has slowed down but may pick up again if other parts of the project get reactivated. Should I loose access to it I would be distressed if all the hard work were to evaporate.

The basis for the request is

  • Wikis made to be read, where a lot of information is already on wiki and doesn't need to be actively edited.

The bulk of the data is collected on the medical research page DOI and on my personal biography page Bio

Thank you KalleMP (talk) 21:12, 24 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Current body of content does not qualify for a dormancy exemption, but I am happy to report that our Dormancy Policy will soon be amended to extend the minimum time between start of inactivity and a wiki being eligible for deletion to a full year. I hope this will meet your needs once implemented . --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 23:18, 5 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The expected changes to extend the time make the situation less onerous but does not resolve the problem of preserving access to knowledge if I should happen to no longer be able to maintain it.
Please indicate where I can examine what is required for a body of content to qualify to see if I am able to comply.
KalleMP (talk) 12:30, 11 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@KalleMP: apologies for the delay in response, I'll try to give some guidance on this. Ultimately it comes down to Steward discretion based on the guidelines as listed here, leaning stricter depending if the potential coverage is broader or if the wiki's content is simply very slim in the first place. The initial concern was likely due to the very low volume of pages; we hope for say, a dozen significant pages as a practice among stewards as a minimum if the content otherwise fits the conditions (a conditional guideline based on policy's "where a lot of information is already on wiki"). I can appreciate that the linked pages are very long and could reasonably count as multiple by this assessment, if say only a half dozen more pages of reasonable substance can be produced in good time due to the sheer mass of the ones you've linked.
This is balanced with the nature of how Dormancy Policy is applied and if reasonable updates can be done in its span, ie, if you are able to make monthly or even bimonthly updates, dormancy will never be a concern because it's two months to get any flag and another two months before that flag restricts editing (at which point the bureaucrat will be notified automatically by email). Exceptions are not granted if the basis critically depends on possible absence (the 'writer hit by a bus' problem).
Feel free to pursue further if, based on this explanation, you still can offer rationale why an exemption is warranted based on the above, be it basing on the existing body of content being a bit more than initially described or arguing a seasonal nature of updates meaning you can't necessarily check in often enough for the dormancy script to be thwarted. If you get irregular editors already and/or the wiki is known to a dedicated audience of the kinds of readers it is out for, those editors could sustain the content indefinitely as I've seen happen for some wikis despite them totally lacking committed management. --raidarr (💬) 18:59, 15 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cute Fame Wiki[edit | edit source]

Status:  Cannot be undertaken
  • Reason(s): The auto archive feature comes into effect too often. While the wiki is meant to have no new content or information on it until the next game (relating to the wiki) releases, And can be documented here. CuteFame (talk) 17:29, 5 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you're referring to our dormancy policy, this wiki unfortunately does not qualify for such an exemption given the limited body of work currently hosted. However, our Dormancy Policy has recently changed to be substantially more generous, only triggering an inactivity notice after 2 months, closure notice at 4 months, and deletion eligibility only after a full year of no edits. We hope this better-meets your needs given the infrequent need for editing. --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 16:13, 7 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This, Does not. Is there anything else I can do to qualify? CuteFame (talk) 15:10, 24 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@CuteFame: apologies for the delay in response - much of my answer from the above section applies here, you may find it useful; I would otherwise add that it would help if the main page was more structure-complete (for what it is) and if more of the placeholder sections, links were at least given a feasible skeleton to fill out when more content becomes available, as the current condition of the wiki is simply quite incomplete at a glance and that does not generally elicit confidence to issue a borderline exemption. A small, but reasonably polished project may qualify under this basis, while the wiki in this case seems to need more setup. --raidarr (💬) 19:03, 15 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Is there anyway I may hire someone to help me flesh out a page? 🤔, I didn't wanna have to be backed up on managing setup where it's undeeded yet. CuteFame (talk) 19:08, 15 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Restore DP exemption to, and re-close wiki[edit | edit source]

Status:  Done
Closure traditionally sets off the timeline to deletion and is an unusual thing to mix with a DP exemption, indeed, the closure description by default is incompatible with DPE. Is the desire for the wiki to remain read-only as an archive? If so perhaps a custom configuration should be considered rather than the gnarly closure message, assuming the wiki is content complete. I'm also not sure it would be fair to retain a permanent DPE and/or restrict from editing when the only basis for closure was a personal lack of time or interest anymore. If it was a personal project that's one thing, but for a wider property it seems unfair. Would it be at all possible to check in from time to time or even solicit cvt to take a look once in a while, and the wiki either naturally expire from there or be picked up by a willing editor? --raidarr (💬) 09:24, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I was uninvolved with the closure but I believe the archive-only route is the way that Yuzrnaime took.
Not sure if the latter action would be viable. I've decided to disasociate myself with the wiki, and Yuzr did the same. If so, the closure scenario is most likely, but IDK if that's what Yuzrnaime would want. --Zeus, aka Blad (tcg) 20:35, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I was involved in the originally suggested path forward. The wiki is content complete but at high risk of vandalism, so closure was suggested as a method to lock content. @Zeus and @Yuzrnaime, since closure clearly represents a problem with risk of deletion, would removal of edit/upload rights be sufficient to meet goal of preserving content? --NotAracham (talkcontribsglobal) 22:44, 20 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Reason(s): Needed for Scribunto to work properly
Scribunto's function (allowing for scripting language support in MediaWiki) should not be dependent on Semantic MediaWiki to work; this sounds like a bug that should be reported on Wikimedia Phabricator (Miraheze does not maintain the extension). Tali64³ (talk | contributions) 16:22, 14 May 2024 (UTC) Disregard; it appears that Scribunto is enabled globally, which means that it is already enabled on the wiki in question and thus not available in the MW interface. Looking at the ManageWiki configuration of the wiki, however, Semantic Scribunto (a variety of Scribunto) does require Semantic MediaWiki in order to be enabled.
