Favicon Change

I was just wondering when my wiki's ( https://ubuntu.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page ) favicon and logo will be updated to the new image I sent in Phabricator. --Streetfog (talk) 00:24, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

@Streetfog: It will be done when a sysadmin merges my Pull Request on GitHub. MacFan4000 (talk) 01:17, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Wiki Question

How does https://applewiki.miraheze.org have a custom image pane and icon? Also when will my custom domain (www.wikiblue.org) be created? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Streetfog (talkcontribs)

I have a logo, favicon, and apple touch icon set in localsettings.php you can do that by making a request on https://Phabricator.miraheze.org . As for the domain please see Custom domains MacFan4000 (talk) 14:33, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

Wiki created

Hello, I would like to tell you that I have created your wiki. You can now access it at https://applewiki.miraheze.org. You should automatically have been granted founder rights (administrator and bureaucrat), if that's not the case then please leave a notice on Stewards' noticeboard so we can fix it immediately. Do not hesitate to ask questions if your question was not answered in our FAQ. Also, if you want a extension, gadget, or anything else, please ask us here. Thank you for choosing Miraheze, and we wish you good luck with your wiki! TriX (talk) 02:29, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Wrongly handled request

FYI this request was incorrectly declined. Miraheze wikis can't have hyphens in them due to a technical and style design. Custom domains are exempt from domain naming styles. John (talk) 19:37, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

The user has already Re Requested it and I created it. MacFan4000 (talk) 23:31, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
That doesn't nullify the fact you declined a request that should have been approved. Don't side step mistakes, accept them and move on. And I just looked, they didn't re-request, they requested something different.John (talk) 23:45, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Double Request

Hi, this is a minor thing but when there are 2/3 requests for the same wiki, please close the duplicates as "declined" and write "Already done per #oldrequest" rather than closing them all as approved. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:41, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

Thank you!

Thank you for creating WikiBridge for me! You are welcome to contribute if you know anything about bridges. I definitely need users, so if you know anyone who may know something about bridges, please invite them to contribute. MatthewPW (talk) 21:05, 11 November 2016 (UTC)

Lift ban

One of the administrators permabanned me (I am the founder and bureaucrat), seizing the wiki from me and vandalizing it. Please can I be unbanned?

@Szprot:{Why you can't remove he from admin right?TriX (talk) 00:39, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
I cannot as I am not a sysadmin. MacFan4000 (talk) 16:23, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
@Szprot: The issue seems to be resolved, as you are no longer blocked. Do you still need help? For global matters like this, generally Stewards should take care of this. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 16:27, 13 November 2016 (UTC)


New request

Hello MacFan4000, i redo a new request with a local wiki. I will make a redirection later. --Jef-Infojef (talk) 15:18, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Thank you --Jef-Infojef (talk) 15:30, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi MacFan4000

We invite you for discussion about 2016 Community survey/Steward. Please leave your comments.

ManageWiki

I am allowed to join the ManageWiki project if I want to. I am excited for this to be launched and therefore I declare myself a member of the project. Please do not remove me again. Thanks. Amanda (talk) 15:41, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Last Week in the Mirror

Thanks for replacing DPL3 with DPL on TheMirror.miraheze.org per my Phab request. This has solved part of the problem, the different parameter syntax. Unfortunately, it did not solve the major part of the problem. I have gotten the Main Page to render by commenting out the DPL in themirror.miraheze.org/wiki/Template:News_directory with NOWIKI. This template is supposed to be an automated list of the 25 articles created most recently. When I remove NOWIKI, it won't even preview, no matter how extremely I simplify it. The only way to get it to not hang is to code a DPL request that matches 0 pages, such as specify namespace=File. It's got to be something simple, such as the way it is configured on this wiki. I would appreciate if you or some other expert can look in and see what I'm doing wrong, at your leisure. Spike the Dog (talk) 03:52, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

BDO RP Wiki Transfer Rights

For transfer rights, you can see my largest post here: https://bdorp.miraheze.org/wiki/Emlyn_Rue

A steward will have to do this. @Void: @NDKilla:. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 01:32, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Marking for translation

I don’t think we need to mark something for translation when translators in fact doesn’t have anything new to translate, so I intentionally left them as is. What do you think about this? — revi 18:46, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Thing is the non translated code does not get updated on the translated versions of pages until said page is marked for translation, thus triggering FuzzyBot to update the code. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 18:52, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

User rights on templatewiki

Please could @Stranger195: be added to the administrator group on template wiki? I think he will be able to make positive contributions to the wiki. --Rob Kam (talk) 10:28, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Main page to Miraheze template wiki?

On templatewiki wouldn't it be better for seo to move Main Page to Miraheze Template Wiki? --Rob Kam (talk) 13:49, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

I am open to whatever you want to do on templatewiki. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 14:26, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
Okay done, thanks, I hope it's not messed translations up much. --Rob Kam (talk) 15:16, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
The exsisting translations are now gone. I tried to move the page but it kept failing. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 17:25, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
They're listed with the old name at Special:AllPages. I couldn't move them either. I don't understand the translation tool enough to use it. --Rob Kam (talk) 18:53, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

CVT reminder

CVT#Local interference — you should not edit pages with local sysop protect, unless you hold local sysop. Thank you. — revi 08:15, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

Action taken on Meta as CVT

Hello. I saw that earlier today you revdel'd an edit on Meta, citing that you edited while logged out. Please note that this is outside of your CVT capacity, and that this should have not been done as 1) there are active admins on Meta 2) it did not consist in spam or anything enforceable by CVT. Next time, please contact an admin or steward instead of performing such an action yourself. I see revi has already told you this 2 days ago, so please, be careful.Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:19, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

noticed something while on my wiki...

While looking through the global block list, the CVT Links for the global block reasons on IPs 104.202.50.193, 104.140.243.217, and 192.227.205.18 link to M;CVT instead of M:CVT... --Brynda1231 (talk) 20:55, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out. :) That is bound to happen when doing lots of locks/blocks all at once. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 00:34, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

Speaking about translation

Hi. I've asked some questions regarding translation on John's talk page, and was guided to talk to you instead. So I'm here to ask you why some important policy pages that should be listed for translation (such as Dormancy Policy) are not. I also would like remind you that I've made a request to become a translation admin myself on Admins' noticeboard, if you feel there can be more translation admins to check pages.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 19:52, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

Phabricator

Don't forget to do changes in my comment. The exception is fixed, and I want to change permissions in the "ceo" group. Vlad26t (talk) 17:12, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Just a future note, tagging the user with @<Username> in the comment will most certainly get their attention. I wouldn't worry about Mac either, he's always very dilligent and responsive on Phab requests :) Miraheze Logo.svg CnocBride | Talk | Contribs 17:29, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Rollback

Why did you rollback my edit at requests for global rights? Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:55, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Accident, rolled back the rollback. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 20:56, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
That's fine. Accidents with rollback happen sometimes. Pkbwcgs (talk) 20:57, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

If you want it left to sysops, you remove it since you’re a sysop/sysadmin. It’s obvious that its not true and that its deceptive and frankly disturbing (IMHO) and therefore stop reinstating it just because it was removed by a non-admin. Amanda Catherine (talk) 17:30, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

No sysops seem to find it an issue. But non sysops should never edit other's userpages. Please don't revert sysops edits either. Thanks. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 17:45, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

You basically made every wiki private

Was this intentional? --Idris (talk) 02:24, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi, nope. We are trying to resolve. Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this. Paladox (talk) 02:26, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
Alright. And actually, I misread the log. I thought I saw set rights to none, but that's not what it actually says. Sorry MacFan4000. Recently, I found myself having to log it in order to view anything that wasn't the Main_Page, but it looks like it has been fixed (on Meta at least). --Idris (talk) 02:29, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

Request for Bureaucratship on Template Wiki

Hi! I'm most active on Template Wiki. There sometime fetch some problem which can fix only a bureaucrat. (Ex: Translation right on this wiki is not available for general user now.) So that, I'm requesting you for bureaucratship on Template Wiki. I'll not get "any decision" against community. আ হ ম সাকিব (T) (C) 19:07, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

Need contributors for my wiki!

Hi, I started a new wiki called Sustainapedia. I was wondering if you could help me with my wiki and help contribute to it. I need volunteers who will willing enough to edit all the time (almost active every ten seconds, just like Wikipedia), and to also make a difference. If you could ask other users to start contributing and continuously, that would be great. Plus, I need other administrators too who can patrol and protect articles from vandalism and spam. Are you willing to help me? If so, start creating your user page and start contributing and patrolling for vandalism. I will give you admin rights once you come to the site. Cheers! Here is the link: https://sustainapedia.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page. DoveWindsor (talk) 11:30, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Request to be an admin

So i just created the miraheze version of Tolololpedia with the link of https://tolololpedia.miraheze.org because someone said all uncyclopedia including tolololpedia will be closed and some uncyclopedias has moved to miraheze. I tried to import the pages but it says i must be an admin. So can you give me the admin role? --Pradiptamf (talk) 13:53, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
