Good evening[edit source]

Do comic books interest you?--Iron Sword 23 (talk) 01:06, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Iron Sword 23: I've never really been that into them, though I find it somewhat interesting. I assume you're Ryjack from the discord? — Arcversintalk 01:12, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah. Iron Sword 23 (talk) 01:19, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Patroller granted - 2021-05-12[edit source]

Hi, Arcversin. 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) 01:30, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Good Morning[edit source]

How's it going right now?--Iron Sword 23 (talk) 13:36, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Iron Sword 23: Quite well. — Arcversintalk 17:26, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Okay. Iron Sword 23 (talk) 19:34, 12 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hello[edit source]

Good afternoon--Iron Sword 23 (talk) 20:12, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Iron Sword 23: Good afternoon to you too. — Arcversintalk 20:14, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
What templates are you going to create for https://dcmarvelcomics.miraheze.org? Iron Sword 23 (talk) 20:16, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Iron Sword 23: I just meant that if you needed help with any templates, I'd be able to help with them. — Arcversintalk 20:17, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, well how can I make Template: Justice League there? Iron Sword 23 (talk) 20:19, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Iron Sword 23: What sort of template would it be? A navbox? — Arcversintalk 20:23, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah. A navbox. Iron Sword 23 (talk) 20:23, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Iron Sword 23: You will need to import the navbox templates from Wikipedia via Special:Import, do you need any help with the setup? — Arcversintalk 20:50, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah. I do. Iron Sword 23 (talk) 20:51, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── You should go to dcmarvelcomics:Special:Import, select "wikipedia" as the source wiki, insert Template:Navbox as the source page, uncheck "copy all revisions", check "include all templates", and then import. If it times out, just refresh/resubmit the form. — Arcversintalk 20:59, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Done. Anything else? Iron Sword 23 (talk) 21:01, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Iron Sword 23: Did you import with "include all templates" selected? It appears you didn't. — Arcversintalk 21:20, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Imported it with "include all templates" Iron Sword 23 (talk) 21:23, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Iron Sword 23: You'll also want to import MediaWiki:Common.css from Wikipedia. After that, you should be able to use the template like you would in Wikipedia. — Arcversintalk 21:27, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Where do I find MediaWiki:Common.css Iron Sword 23 (talk) 21:30, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Iron Sword 23: Import it like you imported the navbox template. — Arcversintalk 21:33, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Can you help with that part as well? Iron Sword 23 (talk) 21:34, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Iron Sword 23: Just use the same instructions as for the template. — Arcversintalk 21:44, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I already imported it. Iron Sword 23 (talk) 21:46, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Iron Sword 23: You need to import MediaWiki:Common.css in the same way that you imported Template:Navbox. — Arcversintalk 21:53, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
You mean this.

@Iron Sword 23: You just need to use Special:Import to import MediaWiki:Common.css from wikipedia with the "copy all revisions" checkbox unchecked.

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I can't, because it's already there.--Iron Sword 23 (talk) 21:58, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Iron Sword 23: Delete the page and then do it. — Arcversintalk 22:00, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It's saying Import failed: No pages to import. Iron Sword 23 (talk) 22:02, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Iron Sword 23: No idea why, but just try copy-pasting it from wikipedia:MediaWiki:Common.css (using view source) to dcmarvelcomics:MediaWiki:Common.css
@Iron Sword 23: Appears to have worked. Note that I remove it from my talkpage. — Arcversintalk 22:12, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Feel free to create templates for https://dcmarvelcomics.miraheze.org Iron Sword 23 (talk) 22:14, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wiki creator's MMS[edit source]

Hello Arcversin, I was working on Meta:Wiki creators/MMS and found out that your talk page is not in the list. So I thought you might like to add yourself to the list. Thank you :) ~ Mazzaz (talk) 08:46, 3 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

hi[edit source]

i hope I can make a wiki again soon. Hello btw. 😊 SperosDurrell (talk) 23:20, 7 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Just a friendly note: Please don't try to get other wiki creators to create wikis for you if you've had a restriction temporarily placed on you. Thanks! Agent Isai Talk to me! 23:40, 7 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Im not, just stop ok? SperosDurrell (talk) 23:45, 7 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wiki requests[edit source]

Hello Arcversin. Please be aware that due to the lack of a current on-hold status, other wiki creators may leave comments in the comments box to ask the requestor for more information. For example, Special:RequestWikiQueue/22399 where another wiki creator had asked the requestor for clarification yet you approved the request without any clarification being provided. I also see you claimed the request was "perfect"- clearly there is disagreement about that, as another creator had to ask for more information. In addition to the comment, I would say the notes are decent at best. In the future, please make sure to look at the entirety of wiki requests before acting on them. Thanks. Naleksuh (talk) 03:55, 17 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Naleksuh: I labeled the request as "perfect" because the contents of the request didn't cause me any confusion/uncertainty as to the purpose of the wiki, given that a wiki for a piece of media is a well-understood type of wiki that doesn't need much elaboration, which was why I approved it. — Arcversin (talk) 05:04, 17 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You are doing it yet again Special:RequestWikiQueue/22480. Also, testing things like what would happen if every user had admin, while this still should be declined, is not an appropriate time to refer a user to test.miraheze.org. Naleksuh (talk) 23:20, 20 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Naleksuh: I declined the requests because they required further information from the requestor, and as such, aren't "unreviewed". With regards to my response to testing things like what would happen if every user had admin, that would be an appropriate reference in that situation, alongside my request for a concrete proposal. — Arcversin (talk) 23:54, 20 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Now you have done it a third time. User:Agent Isai, please add on hold status. Naleksuh (talk) 05:52, 22 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Naleksuh: Until a proper "on hold" status is added, you can just decline the requests using an on hold message (or a custom one) in these situations. — Arcversin (talk) 05:55, 22 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
This is misleading to the requestor. Declined should mean declined. Also, "I can just" decline them? Same to you, "you can just" read the comments before acting on a request. It goes both ways. Naleksuh (talk) 06:08, 22 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Naleksuh: Agreed, that's why a proper "on hold" status is necessary, because "in review" is also misleading, given that the request is waiting for a response from the requestor, not a wiki creator. — Arcversin (talk) 06:27, 22 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I removed the bureaucrat group from my Wiki pls help Octahedron foundation (talk) 14:37, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Octahedron foundation: You'll need to request help on the Stewards' noticeboard, just ask for the bureaucrat group to be restored on your wiki because you deleted it. — Arcversin (talk) 14:39, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Oh Octahedron foundation (talk) 14:40, 21 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
How long will that take Snail destroyer (talk) 20:08, 23 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Octahedron foundation: Until such time as a Steward handles it. It shouldn't be much longer. — Arcversin (talk) 22:43, 23 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hey[edit source]

Can I ask a question? Snail destroyer (talk) 02:22, 25 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Octahedron foundation: Sure. — Arcversin (talk) 03:19, 25 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
How do I change the logo of my wiki Snail destroyer (talk) 12:26, 25 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Octahedron foundation: Please see ManageWiki#How_do_I_change_my_logo.2Ffavicon.3F. — Arcversin (talk) 23:58, 25 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
in Special:ManageWiki/settings#mw-section-styling in variable $wgLogo choose an image of at least 135 x 135px or 146 x 146px. --YellowFrogger (talk) () 00:10, 26 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Question[edit source]

Hey. Do you prefer visual editor or source code editor? I prefer the latter because it's better and faster for experienced editors (as it even says on the VE project page). But I'm not against the visual editor because it helps new editors. --YellowFrogger (talk) () 23:00, 1 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@YellowFrogger: Source editor, by far. — Arcversin (talk) 23:03, 1 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Oi[edit source]

so what about that wiki Epic54719 (talk) 12:28, 24 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
