[ Extension:YouTube]

Hello. This is a Shortwiki(쇼트위키) manager. Ask the short list to add additional YouTube functionality. Thank you very much.

fablac.miraheze is not dormant.Edit


Our wiki "fablac.miraheze" is not dormant. We do update it occasionally.

Thank you in advance. Sophie

Hi, in that case simply deleting MediaWiki:Sitenotice on your wiki will be sufficient. — revi 16:17, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

Language of my wikiEdit

I hope I am contacting the right people here. My issue is quite unusual, I think: I'm running a German-language wiki (Picard-Wiki) on Miraheze since September. I never had any bigger problems with Miraheze, but now the language of the wiki suddenly changed from German to English. I have already checked my preferences and the Special:ManageWiki, but both are saying they're on German. I have no idea how to solve this. I hope you can help me out. Thanks to everyone trying to help in advance. The Picardian (talk) 21:06, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

confirmo que también a mi me pasa. Cambió de Español a Inglés en mi wiki y en Meta (donde he visto) --Wiki1776 (talk) 21:11, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

Incorrect inactivity notice on biu.miraheze.orgEdit

We keep seeing the dormancy warning at the top of our wiki at even though it has recent activity.

I've tried removing it but it keeps coming back. Am I doing something wrong or is there a bug?

Remove the text from MediaWiki:Sitenotice and it should go away. MacFan4000 (talk) 11:58, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
The reason it comes back is because, as it says, the wiki is inactive. If you need an exemption from the policy please tell me. Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:42, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
@Reception123: The wiki has had some recent edits. They have not touched MediaWiki:Sitenotice at all though. MacFan4000 Talk Contribs 18:10, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

Close the ban appealEdit

Can a steward please official close the ban appeal and implement proposal 5A? The RFC has been open for almost a month now, and, while I acknowledge that proposal 5A does not have overwhelming support, it has the greatest support of the relevant proposals (the proposal for me to “just go away” is irrelevant). I won’t be able to edit frequently over coming days as I have friends in the US that I’m visiting for Thanksgiving, but I’m tired of this just hanging over my head. As noted in the proposal, after one month the issue can be re-visited if I find that the conditions of the proposal are not working. Thank you for your consideration. Amanda123 (talk) 14:54, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

More accurately, proposal 5A does not even have majority support, as noted on the page — despite the arrival of a brand-new user whose only contribution was to vote on the page, not to vouch for OP but to endorse her current half-measure. Fishy. OP is not entitled to be given the benefit of the doubt, especially based on a promise that her future conduct will not resemble her past conduct. But, yes, it is time to dismiss this issue; also, OP. So sorry that OP has all the drama hanging over her head — despite being the origin of nearly all of it. Spıke (talk)15:00 20-Nov-2017
So you are yet to provide a specific example of how my past conduct was inappropriate. I came to Miraheze to help manage LP’s wiki in December 2016 when she was in the hospital. After that, I returned to Miraheze in April 2017. Between April and May 2017, I created WikiCanada as my personal wiki, and was also involved with the global and community affairs of Miraheze to some extent. This was before you even joined the community, so you can’t really be a judge of that. If you think that within either the first month in December or within the second month in April I engaged in conduct that was inappropriate enough to ban me, you need to provide specific evidence and diffs. Additionally, while I agree that the semi-support vote of a brand-new user is somewhat unusual, the assumption of good faith is still essential. Amanda123 (talk) 15:14, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
IMO a proposal is closed and passed only when there are more support votes than oppose. In this case, the proposal clearly failed. MacFan4000 (talk) 15:46, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
@MacFan4000: As noted by John, this is a discussion, not an outright yes or no vote. As such, the actual arguments matter more than the number of votes. For proposal 5A, the majority of the opposition is “oppose — go away we don’t like you” and/or “strong oppose but I don’t want to provide a rationale”. Neither of these are valid arguments in my opinion - whereas the support for proposal 5A actually has valid arguments by multiple users. Amanda123 (talk) 15:51, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
IMO the outcome really is decided by a steward and not you. If they think it fails then it fails. If they think it passes then it passes. MacFan4000 Talk Contribs 16:05, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
I do not think that it is appropriate to pressure stewards into making a decision, especially suggesting that they choose one proposal over the others. A Steward will close the RfC when they deem that it is necessary. Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:40, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
I understand. MacFan4000 Talk Contribs 18:10, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

Permissions fixEdit
