Haha. Delete the Uncyclopedias too.Haizaki (talk) 14:13, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

A user who does not have consensus from the wiki to delete it can't simply request deletion like that. If there is a problem with the wiki such as a global policy or Terms of Use violation, please report that instead so it can be investigated. Reception123 (talk) ('C') 14:25, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Checkuser Request

Can we please get a CheckUser on the All The Tropes users Mohamed Saed, Fungster and MohamedG92? We suspect the latter two to be sockpuppets used to evade a tempban on the first.

Thank you. -- Looney Toons (talk) 15:38, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Request noted, though this is now a Terms of Use issue, I’m declining this on that basis but will look into it separately shortly as a separate matter, which will be dealt with out requiring further intervention from you. John (talk) 15:54, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
All unrelated. John (talk) 16:14, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Checkuser request

Hi, can a steward do a check user on the following accounts?

The vztekker
Betawiki forever, pillage never
Mc pii nagger
Mr pi11ag3r

These accounts are behaving in the same way. Thanks! MCpillager (talk) 17:06, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

한국동요위키's sitename problem 한국동요위키's name is broken. it's name is '한국동요위키', but because of error, it's name was broked and changed to 한국동요위키 --Dongyomania (talk) 03:12, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

sitename of was broked too. --Dongyomania (talk) 03:19, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

You'll have to fix it with Special:ManageWiki. Should just have to replace the broken name with the intended one. -- Void Whispers 04:40, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
I hate to say this, but some issues are caused by our tech staff, and I think they are responsible for fixing them back. Why do you ask the local crats to fix them by themselves instead (which in many cases won't work because they are no longer active)?--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 05:59, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
I have checked all the Japanese wikis to find that there are about 20 wikis with non-active crats (and not all of them are dead communities to be clear). The Japanese group is probably not the largest non-English community, and it's likely that we still have dozens of wikis suffering from a similar situation - broken names, with some of them still have their permission groups unfixed.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 06:09, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Can I create an alternative account? Now I lost the password of LegoMaster again, and since the account will and might not be used again, I have removed the email address on it. Can I create an alternative account Fungster (contribs - email - CA) 06:07, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

You can create multiple accounts if you wish, as having multiple accounts itself is allowed on Miraheze (as a whole). However, I don't get your point what you are asking us for. If you don't use the account LegoMaster, you can leave it alone (even if you forgot the password).--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 10:04, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
If the use of multiple accounts are allowed, so how can Lawrence-Prairies be locked for using multiple accounts Fungster (contribs - email - CA) 14:17, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
Because they use the multiple accounts to abuse/violate policies on MH Zppix (Meta | CVT Member | talk to me) 14:34, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

How can I see the progress of my new wiki?

Last night I requested a new wiki:MX Linux users en and it was created but only wiith the But I wanted it to be accessed by Therefore I registered the domain, created the subdomain and point it to your site. I did also a request on Phabricator for a Let's encript certificate. So I ask: Is there a possibility to see the progress over all steps? --Peter Littmann (talk) 04:27, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

You can set up your notifications on phab from your setting page there, that will allow you to recieve e-mail notification of the progress of phab tasks. In addition, your phab ticket (in this case, which is phab:T4486) page will note every related progress and comments.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 05:46, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
So it hangs only at phab and Let's encript now? Do they work on sundays? Whats about the link from...
We are all volunteers, and if our tech staffs are active, they may work on Sundays as well. The link above shows the phab ticket page of your request.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 06:45, 23 June 2019 (UTC) subdomain(I forward it to to my Miraheze subdomain? There is also something to do or not? --Peter Littmann (talk) 06:51, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
After the setup is done, will be redirected to I think you've already followed our guidelines on custom domains, but if not, please follow the process written there.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 06:56, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
I think so, its not that difficult to understand. I like to update the german translation now to follow the english one which is most actual and accurat I think. --Peter Littmann (talk) 07:14, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

State of my new wiki: MX Linux users en?

What happens here? Should I worry me? Or is this normal at this state? The creation was not noted in the Farmer Log and I am only a user and not a bureaucrat so no chance to change something. --Peter Littmann (talk) 12:23, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

Request for exemption from the dormancy policy

Hello, we are currently working on our wiki "IKgroßeGruppenWiki" and I want to ask if our wiki could be exempted from the dormancy policy. We're gathering a pool of didactic methods that can be used in library courses. The wiki will be open for our community to add new methods but it will most likely be used primarily as a research-platform. So we can't guarantee that there will be enough changes and contributions within 60 days to prevent it from being deleted. We are very grateful for your great service! IKGroßeGruppenWiki (talk) 09:07, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

 Done Now exempted.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 11:09, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Please enable Interwiki for MX Linux users

Delete our wiki

I have already sent a request to delete a site to which there was no response. Stewards' noticeboard/Archive 9#Removing the error wiki But for some reason you moved my request to the archive. I repeat it again.

Please completely delete the unfinished site, since it was created when the Absurdopedia's community on Wikia was looking for a place to move. None of the authors of the Absurdopedia will rule there.

Making The Notice A Global Notice

@John, Void, Southparkfan, NDKilla, and 開拓者: Can you make the global notice "There is currently a Request for Comment about changes to the Content Policy." ? Fungster (contribs - email - CA) 12:21, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

I think it's handled by technical staffs.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 13:35, 30 June 2019 (UTC)
Then email the tech staff! --Fungster (contribs - email - CA) 13:38, 30 June 2019 (UTC)
Please calm down. Our activities are all done on a voluntary basis, and I would not want to see anyone asking us to take actions using an imperative form like this. We're not forced to do anything.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 13:49, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

About a Recent Global Lock

A few hours ago, my main account, Marseillaise, was globally locked due to "cross-wiki abuse". (This was an account I had made for testing at the Public Test Wiki.) I know I have been disruptive here at Meta, and I can understand being blocked here, even indefinitely. However, I was not disruptive at any other wikis on the Miraheze network. I mostly tested at the Public Test Wiki, with occasional edits at a few other wikis. I would really like to have my Marseillaise account unlocked so I can continue testing on the test wiki, and I won't be disruptive any more. Thank you. Legend (talk) 00:21, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

I found out that you have been vandalizing our wikis mainly as an anonymous IP user. It's an obvious case of cross-wiki abuse, and thus dealt as so.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 14:55, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
Please also lock this account as a sockpuppet. - PlavorSeol (T | C) 06:23, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
It's already been locked by Zppix.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 14:25, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Import from Wikia

For Incubator Plus to function we have to import the entirety of the Wikia version (including full page history). The size of the xml dump, however, seems to be something the servers tend to dislike. In other words, Miraheze keeps crashing. Is there any way the stewards can be of help? :) --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 14:07, 4 July 2019 (UTC) P.S.: The move was anticipated here.

Follow the instructions at Imports. The dump needs to be imported by a sysadmin. -- Void Whispers 16:13, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi. Znotch190711 (talk) 02:49, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Uh, this is not Wikipedia, and if you wish to start all over with a new account, all you need to do is not to tell anyone that your account is identical to the older account(s), abandon the old ones, and just use the new one.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 10:17, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

How to nominate somebody as a sysadmin?

On Tech:Timelines, it says that some sysadmins are temporary and some are permanent. How do you nominate somebody as a sysadmin? 開拓者 is the candidate. -- Cheers, Znotch190711 (Contribs - My wiki - CA) 12:13, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

All sysadmins are permanent - there is no such thing as a temporary appointment to date. Sysadmins candidates are either asked to apply by an existing member of Operations or otherwise make their intention known via the process described on Tech:Access policy. No one else is able to nominate someone else for the role, any such nominations will be rejected summarily by a member of Operations on a basis of process. Answered in capacity as an Operations member, not a steward. John (talk) 12:54, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your comment, but I'm not a specialist in dealing with phab related issues, and thus would like to keep myself as it is - at least, until I become sure that I know enough about system-related stuffs. Besides, I don't even have a GitHub account.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 18:05, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Gustave London CheckUser and Oversight in Centopédia(Farmwiki)

As the title says, I need it on my wiki.Gustave London (talk) 14:49, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

(non-steward comment) What do you need them for? Under most circumstances, CheckUser and Oversight aren't granted as permanent local rights due to the Privacy Policy, and rather a steward will handle the situation on request (by temporarily assigning the rights to themselves and then removing them when done). Amanda Catherine (talk) 14:52, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Quando não tiver stewards disponíveis.Gustave London (talk) 14:56, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Just a note that the claim that it is due to the Privacy Policy is incorrect. As Amanda said, the current way that it is done is that Stewards deal with individual cases. The only way to get CheckUser or Oversight rights on any wiki is to request here, but the same requirements as for Stewards apply. Reception123 (talk) ('C') 14:58, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
I'll need this for only 1 weekGustave London (talk) 15:04, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
@Gustave London: Unfortunately, that does not change the policy. There are active Stewards who are able to help you with such requests. Reception123 (talk) ('C') 15:06, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
 Not done CentralAuth tells me that you are new, which is an enough reason to close this request. Generally speaking, we don't have any previous cases allowing local admins/crats to have CU/OS, and I think Stewards are fairly active enough to deal with cases requiring such perms.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 15:08, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

How do i add a Infobox? i Know Barely anything about Coding on Wikis sadly.

Hi, i'm New here as i Moved from Wikia's Mass-Ad Festival to here which seems cleaner. Only Issue i have right now is Adding Infoboxes to my Wiki. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Libya (talkcontribs)

Hello and welcome! Please read FAQ#How do I install infoboxes on my wiki, like Wikipedia has?. (Better yet, read the entire page!) Take care when importing code, because sometimes a template relies on other templates and you need to import them all. You're right that it's "cleaner" to edit here than at Wikia, where they are always breaking stuff. Templates are somewhat like subroutines in a programming language, and unfortunately, it will require learning about them, because even if you get them to work, you'll find you want to tweak them.

This person activities seen to me are quite dubious, can any stewards get the review on it? Thanks. SA 13 Bro (talk) 01:09, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

I've warned them on their talk page about their inappropriate username and wiki request (which I've declined), and they responded by accusing me of vandalism for blanking the misleading statement on their userpage. I think that at least a local Meta Wiki Block, if not a global lock, is in order. Amanda Catherine (talk) 01:25, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your review on it. Yeah, previously I also going to decline the user wiki request, but you has arrived your review job, now awaiting the stewards or local admins to get on it, I dubious that this vandal maybe a sock of somebody else. SA 13 Bro (talk) 01:38, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
I'd say that it's likely that they are a sock of Louise3/DoveWindsor, as a notable behavioral characteristic of their disruption was strange attempts to fork Wikipedia, among other things (and this was before Framgate and the forking discussions that occurred as a result of that).

System administrators

A new version of MediaWiki is available (1.34). Can you upgrade? Gustave London (talk) 13:25, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

(non sys-admin) - Hi Gustave London, We run the latest stable version of MediaWiki at Miraheze and as this page shows that is 1.33. This is as the beta versions (like 1.34) regularly have quite critical issues as can be seen on mediawiki's train deployment phabricator tasks with a number of versions being rolled back or blocked recently until issues are fixed and we wouldn't like to be impacted by major downtime. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat) · CA · contribs · Rights - on) 13:32, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

Wiki poserdazfreebies rarely gets more than one new account in any given day. Earlier this week, four accounts with similar names were created within two minutes of each other:

@Wedhro: Is he getting a specific error when trying to log in? Reception123 (talk) ('C') 14:22, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
@開拓者 and Reception123: When merging the user, the credentials originally belonging to the final account are only ones that can be used to log in. As the original accounts are more like "placeholder" accounts, they can't be logged into. Therefore, in this situation, the original account needs to be merged into the temporary account, and the temporary account then needs to be renamed to have the name of the original account. -- Void Whispers 17:02, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

Wikis could be deleted if inactive for a long time per Dormancy Policy, and it can also be deleted manually in some cases (ex. founder request, severe global policy violation), but manual deletion can be only done by those who have permissions to access restricted functions of ManageWiki (meaning, generally speaking, local crats cannot).

MediaWiki-namespaced pages are sometimes used and sometimes not

See this page (or in other languages). Sometimes the sidebar and module-documentation notice is very simple as MediaWiki's default. If you repeat refreshing page, you will find sometimes the sidebar will display as the MediaWiki:Sidebar defined, and the documentation is also displaysed as the template defined by MediaWiki:Scribunto-doc-page-does-not-exist. It seems that it's a likelihood that things defined in the MediaWiki page are used. --SolidBlock (talk) 08:15, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Part of this happens because the messages are untranslated on the MW software. The way to avoid it is to create a localized version for each page such as MediaWiki:SIdebar/qqx. Though most wiki users don't care about other languages apart from the language they use in the community. As for modules, it's possible that the script is somehow localized and doesn't work on non-local languages.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 14:11, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
qqx is to get its key, not an actual language. And if I uselang zh (the site language), zh-hans or zh-cn (my language), it also happens, not only qqx. And MediaWiki:Sidebar is irrelevant to languages. --SolidBlock (talk) 14:58, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
I have checked it, but I'm not sure why it happens. Perhaps there might be something wrong with the module, or maybe it can be a deep technical issue which requires sysadmins' help.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 15:41, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

password reset / user merge

Hello, this is a newly created possibly temporary account, as I've apparently forgotten my password for my original account Crimgan, which doesn't have an email attached. If possible, I'd like to attach an email to that account so I can reset its password. Is it possible to confirm that these two accounts are connected through the same IP address? If not, I saw some other topics mention user merging. Could I request to merge these two accounts?

Sonansu (talk) 02:13, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

The cases of the Italian Uncyclopedia are to merge temporary accounts on Miraheze and automatically imported accounts from Wikia. Unlike them, there's no way that you can prove that your former account was yours unless you have a committed identity and can ask sysadmins to recover your account. Even checkuser is not a valid proof for this case, as the account in question could be owned by another person who share environments with you. The only solution is to restart with your new account and just leave the old one alone.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 14:05, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure if this will be of any help in confirming, but I'm the administrator of the Dr. Mario World Wiki that this user edits on and can confirm that the account Crimgan and Sonansu are the same user. We've communicated about the Wiki since near the Wiki's inception in the /r/drmarioworld subreddit's Discord, where the subreddit moderators created a channel for editors of the Wiki to collaborate. There are also messages in the Discord all from the same user stating that he is Crimgan on July 13, messages from him a few days ago mentioning him forgetting his password + me redirecting him to the Stewards' noticeboard, and messages of him confirming his new second account is Sonansu. If this still isn't enough evidence though, then that's understandable as well. Just wanted to make this note in case if it was possible for me to help this user out.

Dormancy Policy


I'd like to begin a new Wiki project on this site, but before I do I was wondering if it is possible to pre-emptively organise an exception to the dormancy policy, before I put the work in to setting up the ~3,500 pages?

I'd expect pages of the Wiki to be viewed every few days on average, but edits would be far less frequent with regular gaps of over a month and irregular gaps of six months between mass edits, as other contributors and I can find time to add bulk content.

Given those constraints, how likely is it that I would be granted the exception?

About the Wiki

The Wiki would include detail of all aspects of railway systems in Australia - including stations, tracks, signals, locomotives, wagons, historic, modern and miniature. The primary demographic is enthusiasts, with some general historic interest.

I've tried Fandom/Wikia and their policy enforcing a narrow site layout isn't compatible with what I need, particularly because it is incompatible with wide tables. Regular Wikipedia has proven too difficult to maintain, due to both the notability and reliability of sources policies. The former problem is solved by having my own Wiki somewhere, and the latter I intend to solve by having a master list of "Exceptions to the Wikipedia notability policy".

Inactivity Notice

Hi, I don't know if this is the right place for this request, otherwise, I leave free provision for this thread to be transferred to another page if that is required.

Until last year I was an active user like Wiki Creator, Interwiki Administrator, CVT and COCC, however, this year due to various responsibilities and projects that I started to carry out, I have not been able to allow Miraheze enough time to be able to be active and exercise the responsibilities you used to have. There is a probability that in the January–February 2020 period I may have some more free time, but unfortunately I cannot guarantee at this time that this can be achieved, less if the rest of next year can remain active.

That is why I make available to the Miraheze Staff any type of permit or access that I have until today, thanking of course the trust granted for such responsibilities both by the community and also by the Miraheze Staff that in their this moment also guided me in my first steps here.

I hope to be able to collaborate again in Miraheze at some point, for now, I think this is the best thing I can do to avoid inconveniences arising from prolonged inactivity.

I've been having trouble finding something like a webpage or wiki where I can write in markdown. I don't exactly want a blog (apparently with Wordpress you can write in Markdown). So are there any sites where I can write in Markdown, and that support images?

  1. would work except anyone with the link can edit the source markdown.
  2. Gist supports images but not image captions, I'd like to have image captions.
  3. Pastebin doesn't support images and the resulting markdown looks bad.
  4. Creating an automatic Table of contents would be great but it's optional.

Thanks. --Bulrush (talk) 11:54, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

@Bulrush: Images are always supported, you can upload them as wanted, but I think writing in Markdown on MediaWiki is managed by an extension OR not possible. --Anderlaxe (talk) 11:59, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
@Anderlaxe: Would I have to install an extension on my wiki so I can write in markdown? --Bulrush (talk) 14:44, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
@Bulrush: Probably, it's best to dig around and see if you can find an extension for your wiki. Aνδρέαςtalk | contributions 02:25, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

No admins and bureaucrats on googologywiki

Hi, I am an editor at Googology Wiki. There are no active crats and admins, however there are a small amount of local users there. Because I am the only active user there, and the founder is totally inactive, can some steward or sysadmin give themselves admin, crat, check user and oversight rights? That way I can manage this wiki (file uploads are disabled there, and management is missing. Thank you.

Should I move this request to the adoption noticeboard? OwenFung87 05:03, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Link to wiki: OwenFung87

Stewards do not need to give bureaucrat and administrator permissions to themselves (unless somehow locally elected or themselves are the founders) because we can do the same thing on every wiki on Miraheze. Please note that we also have CVT for counter vandalism operations. For checkuser and oversight, you can make a request here on Stewards' noticeboard so that we can deal with reported cases every time when necessary.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 18:25, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Temporary adminship

Hi, because the founder is totally inactive, and I needed to import templates from enwiki, can you please give me administrator rights? OwenFung87 03:59, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

On which wiki? If the wiki is eligible for adoption, please file a request on Requests for adoption. If not, please bring us a community decision of the wiki so that we can see your request is legitimate.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 15:35, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
@開拓者: It is no use filing a local request for adminship because the last active user before me was active 2 months ago and now the community is totally dead. I am sure that pinging them locally won't work, as most of them are active on FANDOM and not here. OwenFung87 05:13, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

CVT Resignation

I would like to formally state that I am resigning from the Counter Vandalism Team. I joined this team with the optimistic effort of continuing my contribution to Miraheze. However, my lack of activity on the site coupled with my lack of in-depth knowledge on the tools at my disposal have led to me rethinking my position. It's been an honor to be on the CVT and while I originally started out with enthusiasm, that drive has sadly died out. I do hope to return in the future when I have the appropriate expertise under my belt and also the adequate time available to utilize a position on the CVT. Again, thank you!

Implement a policy similar to WP:SNOW

It is a waste of everyone's time and quite annoying to see a large amount of Requests for Stewardship that have zero chances of passing because they are either made by new users or clearly untrustworthy users. Currently I think that Stewards are leaving them open for too long instead of just closing them since it's obvious they should and will not pass. For a question, is it imperative that a Steward closes a request or is a bold close by a concerned community member acceptable? --DeeM28 (talk) 15:41, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

Issue with the redundant Forum talk namespace which hasn't been deleted properly

A few days ago, I created the forum namespace and the forum talk namespace on my wiki here. But recently I've decided to remove both namespaces because I decided they were redundant in favour of the WikiForum namespace. However, the forum talk namespace still shows up on certain parts of the wiki, and being a talk namespace, I cannot delete it directly. I can't delete it at all because I have tried doing just that by inserting the correct number namespace, but it seems that I can only delete main namespaces.

A cyberbully problem

A user named ErtasVideos has made a horrible wiki outside of Miraheze named the Fun Shitpost wiki where he made an offensive article about me, and he and his gang won't leave me alone. They go around stalking wherever I go, and this needs to stop. I'd appreciate if you would block ErtasVideos and tell him to get rid of his awful site. Thanks. Zenko (talk) 20:13, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

@Zenko I am not bullying you, on my personal site ( content is created by the people that use the site, i have no control of who does what on there as they are allowed to do anything there. And you vandalized our wiki too, you could’ve easily solved it by asking me to remove it for you. —ErtasVideos (talk) 20:40, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
I will ask you to remove it, then. It's important that you remove everything you said about me for good. Zenko (talk) 20:43, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
 Not done As long as the issue is out of Miraheze, there's nothing we can do. Also, I couldn't find any evidence of ErtasVideos stalking you here on Miraheze, but could find a log indicating that you saying similar things to others on several different wikis (which seem to have resulted in your blocks). So unless you provide detailed evidences, it seems to me that this case is a false/invalid accusation.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 02:56, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
If you wanted to know a more detailed evidence on why ErtasVideos harassed me and said bad things about me on Miraheze, well, he started this thread recently and an edit that paints me in the wrong light, but I closed these two "copycat" wikis that I started, so the accusation should have been put to an end. The good news is that the Fun Shitpost site has been suspended since it might be deleted for good. Maybe my words have worked after all. I'm a bit senstive and I may consider leaving Miraheze, but I'll listen to good, helpful advice and see what I can do to become better. But I think I might be done with this site, since I can't handle the stress from being bullied and blocked several times and I feel I would be much better if I just don't post/edit ever again and find something else to do in life. Zenko (talk) 04:35, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
The thing is, forking a wiki already existing on Miraheze is a violation of our Content Policy. I guess the wiki creator who created the wiki didn't know well about the original wikis being on Miraheze (as s/he is from non-English community), but the request should've been turned down in the first place.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 08:14, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

Add a few interwiki links on

Hello, I'd like to add a few new prefixes in Special:Interwiki that are not actually meant for external wikis but for our own namespaces, since we use them as they were external sites (like the many different Wikimedia projects), and typing the whole namespace or category is time-consuming. If possible, they should be like this:

  • nb - $1
  • nc - $1

* nd -$1

  • ni - $1
  • nn - $1

* nq -$1

  • ns - $1

* nv -$1 Also, I'd like an answer for #Default thumbnail size on above.--Wedhro (talk) 12:16, 30 December 2019 (UTC)

@Wedhro: Um, I'm not sure. do you want to link categories or name spaces (example: Guide:Mexico or Infobox:Mexico)?
Anyway, ManageWiki already allows to shorten the namespace, for example you can add that the word "WP" links to the Wikipedia namespace with enter on a new line all undefined namespaces which should redirect to this one. That's the same configuration that some Wikipedias and Wikivoyages have. Doesn't that solve it? Hispano76 (talk) 14:54, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
I forgot it was possibile, but it only works for namespaces. I also need shortcut links to categories that have long titles and are ordered by topic (so, for example, "Italia" in the main ns can automatically link to "Categoria:Notizie Italia" in the Nonnotizie ns, because it's full of news about Italy that all have different titles.
I edited out the ns I no longer need, but the other would still be very handy. (what about the default thumbnail size?)--Wedhro (talk) 15:06, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
Hmm, now that I think about it: ns redirects are typed normally (e.g. [[ns:Article]]), while interwikis are tiped starting with a colon (e.g. [[;ns:Article]]), right? In such case it would be confusing for editors, so either all ns get "fake" interwikis or I'll just manually create all the redirects leading to the categories I need. Assuming they're not counted as articles eve in they're in the main ns (?)--Wedhro (talk) 15:18, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
@Wedhro: You could customize templates to use. For example the WP template with the <includeonly>{{#if: {{{1|}}} | [[NAMESPACE:{{{1}}}|{{{2|{{{1}}}}}}]]}}</includeonly> code would link to the article in such a name space, similar to what some templates do. Hispano76 (talk) 15:33, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll probably do something like that.--Wedhro (talk) 15:36, 30 December 2019 (UTC)

Issues with the MediaWikiChat extension

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)
