Please, delete Reiaasu' Wiki[edit | edit source]

Hi, I'm the one who started Reiaasu's Wiki. Sorry my bad english...

I've started this wiki because I wanted to share a lot of ideas and interests on a webpage. However, I'm very busy in my real life (wife, little son, work, etc.), so I don't have the time to organize the ideas and content that I wanted to put on the wiki. So I think the best option is to close the wiki.

And, in the future, if I have all the content properly organized, would you allow me to re-create this wiki?

Thanks for providing to me and for everyone a free MediaWiki-based wiki (and one that looks like the standard MediaWiki, not a weird thing like Wikia...)

Merge accounts[edit | edit source]

I've had a request to merge two accounts here: https://allthetropes.org/wiki/Topic:Tn1hvc57uwgq5n6a

I think if both emails are confirmed, we can be reasonably sure that the account can be renamed or whatever. --Labster (talk) 07:31, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

I know that this is an old thread, but it is possible to globally merge multiple users using CentralAuth UserMerge. However, the UserMerge extension is required for this to work. -- Amanda (talk) 14:51, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

Un-Private (?) Inkubator[edit | edit source]

Not sure how/why non-members cannot read any pages on inkubator.miraheze.org, but I'd like the entire wiki to be readable to the public. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bt109 (talkcontribs)

This is because you requested a private wiki. However, this can be changed by any system administrator @Reception123: Amanda (talk) 00:39, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
For future reference, requests such as this should be directed to phabricator. It might be a good idea to add a section on this to the FAQ or the header. -- Void Whispers 01:06, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
I will change the wiki to private and add the FAQ question. It is already in the header though. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 05:46, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Deletion of knowledge.miraheze.org[edit | edit source]

Globally lock I.Am.Awesome[edit | edit source]

WikiCanada CheckUser request[edit | edit source]

The former user is blocked indefinitely on WikiCanada for being a vandalism-only account. They currently have an unblock request open stating that they are sincerely sorry. I am convinced by this unblock request by itself - however searching through deleted contributions I have a feeling that the user could be connected to the latter user, who is globally locked. I request CheckUser for further information before taking action on the unblock request.

Note to checking steward: the "check user" group on WikiCanada is defunct - you need to use the "steward" group. Amanda (talk) 22:30, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done - Handled by NDKilla. Amanda (talk) 23:53, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

CheckUser[edit | edit source]

I would like to request a CheckUser of this spambot. The global account was locked by @NDKilla:, but it is only the most recent spambot that started on my wiki (WikiCanada), so I would like to block any ranges necessary to prevent further disruptive behavior. -- Amanda (talk) 13:31, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

bureaucrats rights + private wiki[edit | edit source]

Hi, I'd like to get Bureaucrat rights on the following wiki page which I adopted yesterday. Initially, I thought I had the rights, however when i tried changing the wiki from public to private I was told that I dont have the permission to that. Many thanks, Paulius. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pauliusk (talkcontribs) 05:51, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

CheckUser and Oversight group pages[edit | edit source]

All other userrights pages are in the "Meta:" namespace, except for CheckUser and Oversight. Unless there is a good reason for this, I would like to suggest that these pages be moved into the Meta namespace to match all the others. I would do this myself but both pages are fully protected from editing and moving (don't know why). -- Amanda (talk) 21:07, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

There are not in the Meta namespace because they are global tools that affect all wikis, therefore they should stay in their current namespace. I also don't see why you're pretending that you don't know, as you can obviously see in the history that they have been protected to stop the recent vandalism. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 05:22, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
I didn't check the history. -- Amanda (talk) 12:52, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Question[edit | edit source]

Can I use images from Wikipedia Commons without downloading then uploading them? Berlino.caracciolo (talk), 10:28, 9 May 2017

Yes, you can use images from Wikimedia Comments. Just wikilink them like you would any other image and they should appear. -- Amanda (talk) 12:51, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
I would like to change the logo of my wiki; i tried to use Phabricator, but I really don´t understand what I have to do nor what mean the terms they use. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Berlino.caracciolo (talkcontribs) 11:21, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
@Berlino.caracciolo: Just fill out this form. You don't need to change any of the fields other than the title and the description. -- Amanda (talk) 12:10, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

Edit wiki with permission[edit | edit source]

The only thing I need is to be able to approve or reject any edit on my wiki. Is this possible? Thank you, — Preceding unsigned comment added by Safwat.alshazly (talkcontribs) 12:03, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Not steward comment @Safwat.alshazly: The fact that your wiki is private already allows you to restrict who can edit it. You can grant the "member" permission using Special:UserRights on your wiki to anyone you want to edit the wiki. —Alvaro Molina ( - ) 12:03, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Filter 14[edit | edit source]

Now that the filter has disallow enabled, I think that the global filter option should be disabled. Anonymous user page spam seems to only be an issue on Meta and a few other wikis, excluding WikiCanada. Additionally, I oppose filter 12 and filter 14 being global as they have elevated actions enabled. -- Amanda (talk) 21:43, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Of all the 80+ hits for the filter, none have happened on meta. It is also worth noting that for the CVT page deletions for spam, most are for IPv4 userpages. In any case, the filter is an attempted work-around for the currently non-functional global titleblacklist. The functionality of the filter would therefore wind up being implemented with or without the filter. I cannot see how the filter would have an impact on your wiki, since IPs don't even have read access, and the filter does not hit users. -- Void Whispers 22:06, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
We do not provide an opt-out for some things, and Spam Blacklist and Title Blacklist are one of them. They are to protect our wiki farms from the spam and abuses. Since both extensions are currently malfunctioning, we are working around by using Abusefilter. — revi 00:42, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Categories[edit | edit source]

Is there a reason that the categories aren't updating? I have 37 Unused Categories as I've done a lot of updating in the last 24 hours, any help would be appreciated. PlatinumYellow (talk) 10:53, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Site notice keeps appearing in spite of log in and edits being made[edit | edit source]

The following notice will not disappear since a few months, even if I do make some edits or logs :

"Miraheze Staff has noticed that this wiki has no edits or logs made within the last 45 days. If you would like to prevent this wiki from being closed, please start showing signs of activity here. If there are no signs of this wiki being used within the next 15 days, this wiki may be closed per the Dormancy Policy. This wiki will then be eligible for adoption by another user. If not adopted and still inactive 135 days from now, this wiki will become eligible for deletion. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with Miraheze's Dormancy Policy. If there is activity on this wiki you can go on MediaWiki:Sitenotice and remove this notice yourself. If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to Contact Us."

Robert for algopedia.miraheze.com

The notice itself states that it can be removed by editing MediaWiki:Sitenotice. You can either blank the page or delete it, either will work. I do not believe the notice is removed automatically, although it would be a good idea to look into doing that. -- Void Whispers 20:57, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Ok, thanks, it worked. I was just wary that removing the notice myself would not prevent the wiki from being closed by Miraheze Staff. If I understand well, the notice absence is sufficient for the staff to understand that the owner does not want its wiki to be closed. Robert

Wiki went mobile while I was away[edit | edit source]

Hi there!

I've returned to my wiki after a hiatus. I notice it's changed to mobile mode while I was away. I've looked through the FAQ and SpecialPages but can't find a way to turn it back. Can you advise me in how to do this?

I'm not entirely against it, but I miss the side bar with the image and quick links, the bar at the top with the quick links. Much easier to navigate and less blank white space.

Hi,

I don't seem to have administrator and bureaucrat rights on my wiki page https://masus.miraheze.org/.

SiteNotice keeps coming up[edit | edit source]

I have been working on my wiki off and on for the past month and still have the Site Notice populating that my wiki is dormant. Please advise on how to remove this from my site. It makes my other users nervous. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Slinkyspectator (talkcontribs)

Like the notice itself says, " If there is activity on this wiki you can go on MediaWiki:Sitenotice and remove this notice yourself. If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to Contact Us."
The notice was created on 14 May 2017 and was never removed. I've gone ahead and deleted it (replaced the notice with a single hyphen, "-") and it shouldn't show up again unless there are no more edits for 45 days.
I suggest you read Dormancy Policy and request an exemption if you need it. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 20:19, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

Admin who was banned from our community needs their bureaucrat title removed[edit | edit source]

The wiki over at collabvm.miraheze.org is one about a community known as CollabVM. Recently, a higher up user known as Technoturnovers caused some trouble which resulted in them being banned from the community. However, we cannot remove their bureaucrat title for the wiki, and they may figure out that they still have Administrator rights on here and attempt to destroy our wiki. If an admin could remove the Bureaucrat role from Technoturnovers, that would be much appreciated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by CtrlAltDelete (talkcontribs)

@CtrlAltDelete, CHOCOLATEMAN69, CollabVM, Dartz, FluffyVulpix, and LoveEevee: This request brought some of the content on your wiki to my attention. I believe that the contents of several pages violate our Content Policy, including several instances of what could easily be considered hate speech. I've gone ahead and made your wiki "private" instead of outright removing all access to it, to allow local sysops to clean up the content. If you would like specific examples of unacceptable content, please email me/the staff at ndkilla at miraheze.org or staff at miraheze.org -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 21:04, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

CnocBrides request for Wikicreator[edit | edit source]

Hello! Some of you may know me others may not. I have been a member of this community for 1 year, 2 months, 9 days, 23 hours and 27 minutes as of posting this request. In my opinion thats quite some time and its been a lot of fun. Miraheze has enabled me to continue writing the content I love to produce on my personal wiki at Aeross and also expand my knowledge at TME.

That is why today I am requesting rights to become a Wiki creator. I really want to help the whole community out and what to give a helping hand to the administrators, stewards and all the other staff who keep this fantastic community up and running.

Problems about BASEPAGENAME and SUBPAGENAME[edit | edit source]

The {{BASEPAGENAME}} and {{SUBPAGENAME}} may be broken. {{BASEPAGENAME:Template:Sth/doc}}→Sth (expected: Sth); {{SUBPAGENAME:Template:Sth/doc}}→doc (expected: doc). Is that a bug?--SolidBlock (talk) 05:56, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Which wiki are you talking about? Could you link the page(s) with errors? Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 05:58, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Both this meta.* and rs.*. It seems to be error only with templates - it works normally for modules, projects and MediaWiki namespaces.--SolidBlock (talk) 08:02, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Please be aware that the namespaces may not be configured to have subpages. For example, meta only has the main and tech namespaces set up to have subpages. The default, which is the case for rswiki is that talk, user, user talk, project, project talk, file talk, mediawiki, mediawiki talk, template talk, help, help talk, category talk. I find it odd that more talk namespaces have subpages. Either way, if you would like your wiki to have more namespaces with subpages, let us know which ones here or on phabricator. Cheers -- Void Whispers 20:39, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
See w:Wikipedia:subpages. The Template namespace should have subpages. Why do templates ∉ Wikipedia namespaces that do not have sub-pages?--SolidBlock (talk) 01:13, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
It may be a problem. Template-namespace pages should (are expected to) have subpages (be able to use subpages) but the fact is not. It gets in the way a lot to use Lua, documentation pages and so on. So please solve.(这或许是一个问题。模板名字空间的页面应该要有子页面(使用子页面)但事实是并没有。这不利于使用Lua或者文档页面。请修复。)Please admins solve Template's subpages (it may be global).--SolidBlock (talk) 03:58, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

A notice appeared on lexique.miraheze.org saying it hadn't been edited in too long. I've made a few changes like the notice said I should, but now when I add a category to new pages they aren't showing up in the main list for the category. Not sure if that's related.

That is considered as an edit, yes. As the notice says, you can remove it by going to MediaWiki:Sitenotice. If you need your wiki to be exempt from the Dormancy policy for whatever reason please see Dormancy Policy#Exemptions. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 05:20, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Please help me. I can not log in to more than one wiki. See Special: CentralAuth/myriam. That is exactly the problem of "not attached". I do not know the cause of the error "Login unification not complete!" Forced logout when I browse other than home wiki. "Exception" error will be issued and login will be difficult. By the way, I am not good at English. Thank you. --Myriam (talk) 18:51, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

The problem was improved promptly. That's excellent! Thank you very much. --Myriam (talk) 19:53, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Issue with the efn template[edit | edit source]

I've been using the efn template on my wiki but I struggle with it. Instead of outputting lowercase letters from the Latin/Roman script, it gives out the type of letter followed by a number (example here). Is this something a steward can help with or will I have to fill a feature/extension request? If its the second, what do I have to request specifically? Waffitti (talk) 14:50, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

Maybe @Void: can help with this? Being a steward is very little related to technical things, that is up to sysadmins and volunteers also help. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 15:01, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

Delete Kyth wiki[edit | edit source]

I started Kyth as a wiki for a DnD group. However life has become very busy for everyone of late, and we have not really been playing at all, let alone keeping the wiki up-to-date. Can it be scheduled for deletion? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zorackiii (talkcontribs)

I will delete it later but please note this is not a steward matter but a sysadmin one. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 11:43, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Unable to log in[edit | edit source]

Hi, I'm unable to login to miraheze.org. I've tried connecting to softwarecrisis.miraheze.org and bootstrapping.miraheze.org. I was able to create an account on the former subdomain, and at the time I received a similar error but found I was logged in anyway. Since then I'm unable to log on, with errors like "[6b3d1cb13719e11e93c3d520] 2017-08-22 22:32:27: Fatal exception of type "Exception".

My username is "Kartik Agaram". I've looked at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Logging_in#Log_in_problems, but my browser is set up to always allow cookies from miraheze.org or any of its subdomains.

The issue is not with your browser. It's local. All accounts that are not attached to loginwiki cannot login. Normally, the accounts should be attached, but there have been issues with the way CentralAuth has been working, and this doesn't always work out. Thankfully this is an easy problem to fix.

For my wiki SerinfHosp I would like to upload zip and pdf files, will it be possible?[edit | edit source]

At the moment I can just upload image file. The files are for internal use, they are extension to my software, and I'd like to make it available. Thank you very much — Preceding unsigned comment added by Serinf.it Roverato (talkcontribs)

Please note that Stewards' noticeboard is only for steward matters, so your initial request on Phabricator was the correct procedure. Yes check.svg Done Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 10:52, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

Received an error in wiki request[edit | edit source]

Hi, I'm new here and wanted to create a wiki.

In my request I used "von_muenchow.miraheze.org" as URL and "Wiki von Münchow" as Wiki name. The form complained about only alpha-numeric characters being allowed in the database name. Now I don't know whether I should remove the underscore from the domain or the german special character ü from the name.

Additionally, I can't correct my request and submit a second time, the system states "You have already requested a wiki." But I thought my request has been cancelled/not submitted due to the aforementioned character problem. I'm puzzled.

Could you please have a look at that? Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Florian r (talkcontribs)

@Florian r: Unfortunately, for now why don't support hyphens (-) or underscores (_) for URLs. That is an anti-spam measure, you can re-request in an hour, or if you want you can tell me which URL you would like (with no underscore) and I can create it now. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 06:53, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
@Reception123: Thanks, I got my wiki created now and everything works like a charm! --Florian r (talk) 13:25, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Status of my Wiki request[edit | edit source]

Hello !

I have requested the creation of a new Wiki. But I can't see anywhere (especially here https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:RecentChanges) its request or creation status. More, I can't ask for a new one claiming I have already asked for one, so the request seems to be registered. So can you tell me what the situation is about my Wiki demand?

Thanks a lot!

@Ohartmann: There doesn't seem to be any request under your name. The message is for spam prevention. Please try again in an hour after you submitted your first request, or tell me the contents of your request here and I will create it. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 14:12, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

internal error : fatal exception of type "Exception" on log in[edit | edit source]

Hi, I have some issues with my members accounts. I have created them with a random password sent by email. But when they try to connect they get this internal error and are redirected to the login.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:CentralLogin... page. My account does not have this problem. But I have created another test member account that has it. After getting this error page it seems I need to come back to my wiki website and I seems well connected. Is there a redirection issue? Thank you.

This issue should have been fixed by John yesterday. Please report if you are having any other issues on Phabricator. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:31, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

Delete discussion[edit | edit source]

Dear stewards,

I'd like to have my wiki discussion.miraheze.org deleted please. I no longer need it and am planning to make a new wiki that better suits my interests if it doesn't exist already. Thank you for hosting this site for all to use.

Sau226 (talk) 06:36, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

@Sau226: Please make your request on phabricator, as it requires the attention of a sysadmin rather than a steward. -- Void Whispers 21:45, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
I would normally just do it directly, but no access currently, so as Void said, creating a Phabricator task is best so that it can be properly tracked and so that I don't forget. There seems to still be a lot of confusion between stewards and sysadmins and their roles looking at this page, so I think something should be written to make it very clear what each do.

I think you have done good work as a volunteer and are active, therefore I approve this request. Since it's easier for a steward to grant the rights, please do. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:49, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

request a wiki - invalid characters[edit | edit source]

I clicked "submit" on the request a wiki page after filling out the relevant zones, and then got an error telling me I had used invalid characters. For the record, I had not used any really weird stuff, but I had put a dash in the Subdomain and a space in the Wiki Name. Was one of these the invalid character? And does the error mean I have to submit my request again once correct? I tried to resubmit it right afterwards, once I removed the dash from the subdomain, but I got another error telling me I had already requested a wiki. The name of the Wiki was "Arctic Lands Wiki," if that's of any help. Pavellius (talk) 03:05, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi, they are not actually allowed "-" in the subdomain; if you continue to appear duplicate wiki request error, make your request here specifying the subdomain and description of the wiki, and I or another creator wiki will attend your request.
