Uh, you really should write in English if you can (because they don't understand Japanese). Here's a translation:
"Since User:kurie is now locked globally, I'd like you to remove the user's bureaucrat permission on my wiki. Thanks."

Interwiki links[edit | edit source]

Hi, my wiki Poké-Lists needs interwiki links:

Thanks! Why is jp local though? --Raltseye (talk) 23:42, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
How do you mean local? If you mean on only the local interwiki table, then that's intentional. As a specific request for a specific wiki, none of these got added to the global interwiki table. -- Void Whispers 23:45, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
I mean as in, when I tested them all on my user page, jp, was excluded and was not moved to the sidebar but was instead contained as a link on the page. Why? --Raltseye (talk) 12:14, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Requesting non-deletion of OpenHatch wiki[edit | edit source]

Hi Stewards!

I've been importing the OpenHatch wiki to Miraheze, for the main purpose of keeping it online as an archive as the non-profit OpenHatch has wound down operations. You can read more about our history growing open source here:

I'd love to keep our wiki online for posterity, so that people who are trying to run similar organizations in the future can use our information as a resource. The only edits I foresee in the future are related to updating historical information. The wiki is likely to go dormant over the next few monnths, but my preference is to keep it online even if it does go dormant.

I'm in the #miraheze channel on Freenode, and intend to be responsive to questions from Miraheze staff. Let me know what you think! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Asheesh (talkcontribs)

@Asheesh: Sorry for the late response. I've given your wiki a Dormancy exemption. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:21, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Delete wiki[edit | edit source]

Hello! I would like to completely delete these two test wikis without adoption option.á_stránka

Thank you Dami (talk) 18:27, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi, this request has been moved to Phabricator as stewards cannot delete wikis. Amanda Catherine (talk) 18:42, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
@Dami: Hi, out of curiosity, may I ask, why are you requesting deletion? Reception123 (talk) (C) 09:59, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
@Reception123: Because the only thing that forced me to continue the wiki was an infobox that does not work. Unfortunately, no one was able to help me. Anyway, thank you to all who helped me somehow. For a very long time, I wanted to have my own wiki with functional infoboxes, but we probably can not have everything. Thank you Dami (talk) 11:09, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
@Dami: Do you still need help for your infobox? I'm sure someone will be able to help you. Reception123 (talk) (C) 11:55, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
@Reception123: Yes, I'll be grateful if someone helps me. But I still ask for a complete wipe of these wikis. When someone finds a solution, I'll ask for one new one. Dami (talk) 12:41, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Ok. @Void: ^ Reception123 (talk) (C) 13:26, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
@Dami: I've mostly resolved the issue by simply removing {{documentation}} from the template that was throwing a Lua error on thisrealitywiki. The documentation will have to be accessed manually, but the template appears to be functional. -- Void Whispers 19:33, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
@Void: I really appreciate it. I can not thank you enough. Dami (talk) 22:34, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

504 Gateway Time-out on template import[edit | edit source]

I've exported

Template:Graphical timeline
Template:Horizontal timeline
Template:Horizontal timeline/doc
Template:Horizontal timeline/sandbox
Template:Include timeline
Template:Include timeline/sandbox
Template:Sidebar timeline
Template:Simple Horizontal timeline
Template:Simple Horizontal timeline/doc
Template:Timeline Legend
Template:Timeline of release years

from Wikipedia - 451 kb. Apparently (in Recent changes) they've imported once into Miraheze template wiki okay. However the import page fails each time I've tried it, with the error "504 Gateway Time-out". --Rob Kam (talk) 11:47, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi, we apologise for the problem your having. It seems mediawiki is slow at processing the xml files thus it is hitting the timeout. We have set the timeout at 400 but that doesn't seem to be helping much. If you would like us to import this please create a task on "" with the wiki you want it imported into and the file you would like us to use as the import. Paladox (talk) 17:28, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I managed to import it after repeated tries. I'll ask first on Phabricator in future. Rob Kam (talk) 22:48, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

Need help importing template[edit | edit source]

Hello can somebody please export the wikipedia template Template:Infobox to my wiki at []? Thx — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fair0002 (talkcontribs)

@Fair0002: You can do this yourself by going to Special:Export on Wikipedia (check "full history") and then going to Special:Import on your wiki. Please remember to sign your posts with 4 tildes (~~~~). Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:49, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Making Ansaikuropedia and Usopedia exempted from the Dormancy Policy[edit | edit source]

Hi, I'd like to request two of the wikis I'm involved as a bureaucrat/admin to be exempted from the Dormancy Policy.

The 2 wikis are:

  1. - Usopedia
  2. -Ansaikuropedia

Both of them have over 1000 articles, and are read by many people. I'm also a committed member on Meta, meaning I have global activities.

Thanks for your consideration.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs) 08:01, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
