Please help to fix Recent changes page on template wiki[edit | edit source]
- @Rob Kam: I can't seem to reproduce this issue. Could you please either provide a screenshot or tell us what browser (and version) you are using? Also for future reference please note that Stewards do not deal with such technical issues so Community noticeboard would be a better place for this type of request in the future. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:48, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
- @Rob Kam: Yes. It was me. But problem is, first time when I edited this page, there was no interface admin program on any wiki. But NOW (and obviously when i tried to edit second time) this is here. So that, nobody can't be able to change special pages (like Mediawiki or css) without Interface Admin, Bureaucrat or Steward right. If you want to change those pages later, you should request for interface adminship. Thanks! আ হ ম সাকিব (T) (C) 23:43, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
- @Reception123: Can I just cut and paste this over to Community noticeboard, or is there some protocol to follow? It will get seen better over there. --21:21, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
"Exception" error[edit | edit source]
Hello, and thank you again for your beautiful work! My wiki is working well, but I have a problem when a new user has to set a new password at first access. The password input works, but after that I see a page which says (italian version):
Errore interno [6ed00020e037182f9468e092] 2020-01-16 10:55:53: Errore irreversibile di tipo "Exception"
Is it possible to fix it? (the best thing should be redirecting the user to a news page, like "Your account is ready, welcome and begin navigatioN"...
thank you Michele
- As it seems to be a technical issue, please file a ticket on phabricator.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 05:09, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
I’m having an issue with the style of the infoboxes on mobile[edit | edit source]
Hi there, so I’ve recently started work on a new wiki and I want to make the theme for mobile users look exactly like Wikipedia. I’ve tried to implement infoboxes from Wikipedia, however the Infobox theme on my wiki for mobile users is substantially different compared to Wikipedia. Is there any possible way to correct this? Thanks.
- You can simply import infoboxes from Wikipedia following this guide. I think it will work out.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 05:13, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
- I followed that guide, however none of my infoboxes on mobile resemble exactly to the Wikipedia ones. Can I have some further assistance please? Thank you. RuffianLewis (talk) 09:14, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

no clue about phabricator[edit | edit source]

I don't understand why my request for a wiki was denied.[edit | edit source]
I requested a wiki, and I got a notice. I can't read the whole notice because it's cut off and when I try to visit the location of the notice it says there is "no special page". It says it was denied because "Forking the existing wiki (for possible block evasion)." However, I never got blocked on such a wiki and that wiki does not exist, to my knowledge. Here's proof: https://toxicfandomusers.miraheze.org/wiki/Miraheze
I may have confused whoever handled my request, so I will clarify. My friends wanted me to write an article about a very bad user on this wiki, but I can't because it's about bad fandoms, not bad users. I was never blocked on a Miraheze wiki and I just want to write an article for my friends that I can't do unless I get the wiki I requested. So, may I please get it eventually?
Edit: I found out that by clicking on "Visit request" on my notice directed me to "Special:Special:RequestWikiQueue/10562" instead of "Special:RequestWikiQueue/10562". I have now edited the request to clarify some things. WickyHoney (talk) 05:58, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

How restrict access for all users to talk namespaces[edit | edit source]
We would like to keep our copyrights and heavy censorship on content. We do not need extra attention to talk namespaces. How we can disable access or delete or hide all TALK namespaces ?
Thanks in advance.

Issues with the MediaWikiChat extension[edit | edit source]
I've spotted at least 2 issues with the MediaWikiChat extension. The first problem is that administrators are unable to ban users from using chat by giving them the "blockedfromchat" permission. And bureaucrats are unable to use the (managewiki) permission to allow themselves or other usergroups to assign users the said permission.
The second problem is that the MediaWiki:Smileys page isn't working, as it isn't allowing the emotes to appear via Chat. I would appreciate it if these issues could be addressed. Particularly the first one, which I assume is the easier one of the two. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 05:40, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
- @C.Syde65: Hi. It would be preferable if you opened a task on Phabricator as this matter is not for Stewards. Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:04, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

We need to increase the ram on our matomo host. Again apologies that this is happening. Paladox (talk) 15:01, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

Renaming Problem[edit | edit source]
Hello. This is my backup account that I'm temporarily using. So the renaming process from ZapperGlaze49 to TheChisatoFan got stuck at receptionflamewars.miraheze.org and it has been like that for a few hours already. Can you please help me fix this problem? Thank you. KatFan55 (talk) 12:24, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
- Sorry for the inconvenience caused by this error, I have now fixed it and you should be able to log into your original account now. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:28, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
Question[edit | edit source]
The Question is, is it possible for a steward to be impeached, and if the steward is impeached, then the steward loses their power.
- @RoboticJeffy: Yes, it is possible for a steward to be removed ("impeached" as you say). The rules for the removal of a Steward can be found here. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:18, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
Vandalism by administrator[edit | edit source]
Users Lipomir and Bloodia have committed vandalism and erasure on several pages within the Atlas collaborative wiki, on which they are administrators. This particular wiki is a collaboration between a few groups. Although these deletions initially targeted the moderation team for our group, after moderation action, the users have started deleting all pages by our users on the wiki, and removing the members of our group from the wiki. This was done without warning and without the permission of anyone involved but the aforementioned administrators, in what we consider a severe breach of the Miraheze code of conduct. If there is any way that we can have these deletions restored, the dormant status removed and their admin privileges revoked, that would be greatly appreciated.
One of our users, Gorbatov was an administrator and retained their privileges, so we managed to save through various caches and administrative actions our work, but we would still like, if possible, the deleted content to be restored and the users who committed the erasures to have their administrative privileges on our wiki removed.
Thank you very much, Valdiu
- @Valdiu: I have revoked permissions of Lipomir, Bloodia, and Szprot for abusing their permissions, and blocked (locally, at least for now) them because of their vandalism. Local administrators can undelete the pages (as well as Stewards) to fix it. I will start undeleting the pages that were deleted yesterday.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 09:52, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
