User:Dross/Invalid wikis

    From Miraheze Meta, Miraheze's central coordination wiki

    Here I document a running list of subdomains and database names which are invalid for one reason or another, so I can keep track of them and reference for situations in which they come up.

    Technical limitations[edit source]

    These are subdomains and/or database names which are reserved for one reason or another within the Miraheze infrastructure. Projects with similar names to these are almost certain to be denied.
