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.
