Suggestions[edit source]

Maybe we should put a link to the staff and volunteers here instead of on the table located on the IRC page. Tankobot (talk) 07:14, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

The first sentence in the What is Miraheze? section doesn't read well. Perhaps change to "Miraheze is a project with the mission to provide everyone high quality wiki hosting." or "... with the mission of providing high-quality wiki hosting for all." --Labraun (talk) 10:59, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Changed. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:13, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

@LegoMaster: Should've checked the timestamp first, I don't think a response after 6 months will be useful :P Reception123 (talk) (C) 14:57, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

Where should this get posted?[edit source]

I wanted to thank everyone involved in addressing the recent downtime due to a full database server. Does anyone know where the details are posted on wiki? Rsterbal (talk) 17:53, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

According to this page's title, the word "centre" is spelled wrong! LadyParanormal (talk) 03:12, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
@LadyParanormal: The spelling is not 'wrong'. 'centre' is usually consider the British English spelling, while 'center' is the American English spelling. Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:32, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

I can't reply to or post any new comments.[edit source]

I need help with commenting. After I post a comment, I can't reply to any replies I get on that comment and I also can't post anymore. What happens is I hit the post button and nothing happens and a ReCaptcha appears. Oftentimes, the site will seemingly punish me by giving me unsolvable Captchas or ones that take forever to solve even when your answers are correct. But for the most part, trying to post a comment does nothing because the post button doesn't seem to work at all anymore after the first comment so the ReCaptcha is pointless anyway. Can someone help me out here? Donutbandit (talk) 12:49, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

On which page? Screenshot? ~ RhinosF1 - (chat) · CA · contribs · Rights - WB) 13:02, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

Are you using the Google Chrome to access on Miraheze wikis? If so, try to use incognito mode by pressing "Ctrl + Shift + n". I previously also having the same issue, but now can browse it. SA 13 Bro (talk) 00:43, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

Login Error[edit source]

When I try to login into MediaWiki app , I get this error

Error occurs when logging into Wikimedia This message says there is hijacking !!!

Please advice --Emad4ald (talk) 07:12, 22 September 2020 (UTC)

Well, I see that you are logged in as you posted this. And normally if that error happens you just need to resubmit the form. And if that doesn't work either, clear your cookies. Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:56, 22 September 2020 (UTC)

HTTP ERROR 500[edit source]

I get this message "This page isn’t is currently unable to handle this request. HTTP ERROR 500" kindly help me --Emad4ald (talk) 09:23, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

Now, I would direct you to the Community noticeboard as you're more likely to get a response there. --Sabelöga (talk) 21:17, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
@Emad4ald: For these sort of issues, it's actually best to either report it on Discord or IRC to system administrators, in #miraheze connect as an example, or e-mail to tech at Dmehus (talk) 21:18, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
Nevertheless, since it has been more than thirteen hours since you reported this issue, which I believe has since been resolved, please advise if any further issues by way of a reply to this thread, on an exception basis, and I will {{ping}} system administrators to it.
