Sorry to bother, but I have one more question: the wiki's logo is not visible for me. I uploaded an image, whose measures are 135x135, according to the MediaWiki tutorial, but the upper left corner is blank. This is the image. Help me, please.Haizaki (talk) 17:21, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

Great. Thank you for the your help.Haizaki (talk) 18:17, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

Do I need permission to change my CC license?[edit source]

Hey, Bonnedav. Thanks for your previous help with my wiki. I was wondering if I needed permission to change my CC license. I'm interested in changing it to a CC BY NC ND license. Thanks for your help. I appreciate it. Lighthead (talk) 20:28, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

I'm not sure if you're watching my talk page. I'll just repost here:

Oh okay. Thanks. I tried changing that in my settings, but it then reverted to the default license. I'm not sure if it needed time. Do you know? Lighthead (talk) 20:45, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Actually, nevermind. It changed. I stupidly didn't understand the 'submit' portion. It seems to have changed now. Thanks. Lighthead (talk) 01:12, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for being sympathetic. And thanks again for all your help. Once again, I appreciate it. Lighthead (talk) 06:44, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Patroller granted - 2020-08-31[edit source]

Hi, Bonnedav. An administrator on Meta has granted you the patroller user group permission, which gives you the ability to patrol recent changes and new pages of other Miraheze users (both registered and anonymous) who are not either autopatrolled or an administrator. In addition, this group also means that your edits are autopatrolled, so other patrollers or administrators don't have to patrol your edits. You should also be aware that the granting of this user group is at the discretion of Meta administrators, so different administrators will have slightly different criteria for granting. Likewise, just as it is a discretionary appointment, revocation is also at the discretion of Meta administrators and, again, each will have their own criteria for revocation.

In the medium-term, plans are in the works to develop a Meta Patrollers School, likely led by one or two active administrators, that will provide a comprehensive set of guidelines for patrollers and answers to commonly asked questions.

Nevertheless, the following are some of the main guidelines for patrolling. If you follow these guidelines completely, it is unlikely your patroller user group should ever be revoked. In technical terms, even when you find content that requires deletion by an administrator or otherwise requires remediation, undoing, reverting, or rolling back (if you are also a rollbacker, of course), you should always first mark as patrolled any revisions regardless of whether that content is destined to remain extant to the page or even on Meta entirely.

  1. When patrolling talk pages, user talk pages, and noticeboards (in Main and Meta namespaces), you should first check to see whether the user properly signed their posts using four tildes (~~~~). If they have not, you should add {{unsigned}} by substitution ({{subst:Unsigned|username|00:01, 31 August 2020 (UTC)}}), where username is the user's username or IP address and the timestamp is the full timestamp from the diff page. As a best practice, you should also link to the diff in your edit summary, so other administrators and patrollers can easily tie your modification to the original edit being modified. To speed up this process, you can copy the diff-permalink user script from line 5 of this page into either your (a) common.js or (b) global.js page (the latter applying globally on all Miraheze wikis);
  2. When patrolling the noticeboards, ask yourself whether this topic is on the correct noticeboard. If it is not, you should move it to the correct noticeboard, by either undoing the edit or manually removing the topic (if there have been intervening edits), again linking to the original noticeboard of the topic and the new noticeboard where it was moved in your edit summary. On the new noticeboard, you would simply paste in the topic (including the section header), linking to the diff page as in the first step. An example edit summary might be Moved [[Special:Diff/######|this discussion]] from [[Stewards' noticeboard]] to [[Community noticeboard|here]], where ###### represents the numeric revision ID of the originally posted topic;
  3. Also when patrolling the noticeboards and talk pages (including user talk pages), as a best practice, take care to kindly fix any formatting mistakes (such as excess line breaks or incorrect wiki code), per WP:LISTGAP;
  4. If something requires deletion, you can add {{delete}} to the top of the page in question, taking care to follow the instructions on that template page;
  5. If you come across a user who repeatedly makes the same mistakes, send them a guidance note on their user talk page, informing of the steps need to edit and post constructively on Meta; and, finally,
  6. If in doubt whether something requires remediation or not, patrol it, and then ask any administrator via their user talk page or at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard if any further action needs to be taken.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you! --Dmehus (talk) 22:33, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Small change to the RequestWiki UI[edit source]

Hi,

Just letting you know that there's been a small change to the RequestWiki UI this morning and you can check the new steps to take here.

Mainly wanted to note that you can leave the reason field blank if you are approving a request, as it will automatically link to the request.

Also would like to note that declining is now also done via the "Handle request" section rather than a separate one.
