Book[edit source]

Do you mean The Maze Runner? 76.254.58.34 19:56, 7 August 2015 (EDT)

Actually, no, but I have read that entire series. This is a different series by the first author.the first book is called Eye of Minds but I'm not sure what the series is called. I'm sure I could find the whole series with google, but I'm reading another series for now. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 09:12, 8 August 2015 (EDT)

Private wikis[edit source]

Hi, a few days ago I asked SPF if Global interface editors could edit Mediawiki: pages on private wikis and he said yes. How come you wrote that they can't? I think that if it is possible they should be, as I don't want to leave you with all those templates to put on private wikis :) Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 05:18, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

@Reception123: I was unaware of your conversation with @Southparkfan:. It can easily be changed to allow usage on private wikis but it would involve giving you full read access to all private wikis, not just the mediawiki namespace. Anyways, I'll figure out / fix it later. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 14:45, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Infobox CSS[edit source]

Thanks for telling me how to make the infoboxes appear correctly; I added MediaWiki's common.css as my global skin, but I know this won't make the changes visible to every person on my wiki; Is there a place I can go to add my CSS to the wiki itself for all users so the infoboxes won't look weird to everyone else? --Xane123 (talk) 07:58, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

@Xane123: I went and copied the CSS you had on your skin.css page to your wiki's MediaWiki:Common.css :) infoboxes appear to be formatted better now (on the right, lines). The main infobox appears blank but maybe it needs an example with values, or it was improperly edited. Infobox-character appears to work. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 12:51, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, NDKilla! --Xane123 (talk) 14:25, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
@Xane123: No problem :) btw you might want to remove un-needed CSS :P I just copied it all because I don't know what that box uses. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 14:44, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Delete Log[edit source]

Not sure why this got deleted, but I have requested a private Wiki to host such content. Please can you temporarily undelete so that I can get my work back, sorry if this isn't the correct place to request but I couldn't send you a message another way :

@Gyrobot: This was handled by User:Reception123. I'm sorry about my lack of response on the matter. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 16:46, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

Interactive Maps[edit source]

Hey @NDKilla:,
In the near future, I really want to add some interactive on my wiki. However, I am not at all sure if it is even possible with Miraheze's current set-up: The widgets extension isn't allowed, which leaves me with Extension:Maps. Hopefully, you might be familiar with how these things work...? Hmm...is there any method you might recommend? I've been looking into the Leaflet and OpenLayer map services.Oberyn (talk)

On the subject of wiki requests[edit source]

How long does one usually take to review and accept/decline a wiki request? It's been a few days and I'm still in review, but requests ahead of mine are already accepted. YourFace (talk) 16:40, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

@YourFace: I'm really sorry for that, your request was missed. I will take care of it now. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 16:42, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! YourFace (talk) 16:44, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

@NDKilla: I am new to wiki, but I replied back to the request for wiki creation. Here is my talk link https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/User_talk:Ndowens

I'm sorry if I'm wrong, you can remind me. I want only help in here. Thanks — AYST201Message! 22:18, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

@AYST201: I don't think you've specifically done anything wrong. I just think you should have more edits and be involved in the community in other ways. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 22:24, 10 April 2016 (UTC)
@NDKilla: Thanks for right :)

Infoboxes?[edit source]

Hi! I read earlier on this page that you taught someone how to use infoboxes. Any chance you could do the same for me? Nyzari (talk)

Question[edit source]

What would be the correct place to request the deletion of a wiki that no longer serves any purpose to me? Phabricator? Or should I ask a meta.miraheze steward or administrator? Thanks.--ZenSwordz (talk) 16:52, 31 July 2016 (UTC)

@Zenswords: Phabricator works for the request if you want it in issue tracking, but really you can contact us anywhere. Because the action is irreversible, the request will have to be confirmed on metawiki by a bureaucreat on the wiki in question. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 17:23, 31 July 2016 (UTC)
Can you delete "Pulsar Wiki" (pulsar.miraheze.org)? The project has been abandoned for some time. Someone else can use the cool domain name. I assume you can do this but let me know if I need to contact somebody else.--ZenSwordz (talk) 21:07, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
@ZenSwordz: Done, sorry to hear about the project. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 03:58, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Rename Request (계정명 변경)[edit source]

Hello NDKilla? My Name is 아름불휘. Before Global account rename It has requested. Rename is 아름불휘 → to 믿음나무. Thank you. --아름불휘 (talk) 15:59, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

@아름불휘: [progress]. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 16:06, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Renaming wikis[edit source]

Is it possible to rename wikis, and are there occasions where the request is denied for some reason? Would you be willing to take the request or should I pester phabricator? :P -- ZenSwordz (talk) 18:11, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

@ZenSwordz: Do you mean changing its sitename (project namespace etc) or changing the domain it's on? Or both? I can do either or both, but need to know the wiki and what you want done. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 21:25, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
I wish to change the name Black Myth (https://adda.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page) to Imperius, and additionally change the domain to imperius.miraheze.org if possible. Thanks! -- ZenSwordz (talk) 21:52, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
@ZenSwordz: This is done -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 01:09, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

NoTitle[edit source]

Hey, ND. You installed NoTitle on my wiki recently, but it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas? -- ZenSwordz (talk) 22:26, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

@ZenSwordz: WFM. I edited the page "Elves" on your wiki, put __NOTITLE__ at the top. It didn't work until I purged the page, but after that the title disappeared. Note that the main page will still say "Main page" on the tab, but the actual in-page heading should go away. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 22:30, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
Ah, makes sense. Thank you! -- ZenSwordz (talk) 12:26, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
I replied to your comments :P -- ZenSwordz (talk) 12:16, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi NDKilla[edit source]

Can you change myright at trexwiki to "co" not "ceo".Thanks :) TriX (talk) 00:07, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

@TriX: Hi, please request this at Request features (Phabricator) rather than talkpages. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 18:41, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

Please don't delete the wrong database[edit source]

I created https://wright001.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page, but am not sure what the database is. I entered "wiki" as the database the last time I attempted to create wright001.miraheze. I will wait to hear from you before I attempt to create wright002.miraheze.--Guy vandegrift (talk) 17:33, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

@Guy vandegrift: The database for wright001.mraheze.org has to be wright001wiki. The domain for "wiki" database would be ".miraheze.org" and is invalid. -NDK
Here is the problem: I accidentallyl created two wikis: one is
  1. https://wright.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page but has the name "wright001"
  2. https://wright001.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page and also has the name "wright001"

Which one is the bad one? Or are they both bad? What do I enter as the database name? Is ok to have both the name and the address be wright001?--Guy vandegrift (talk) 17:40, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

The database names are subdomain+wiki MacFan4000 (talk) 17:43, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
I renamed wright.miraheze.org to wright rather then wright001.as for database names wright001 is attached to wright001 wiki and wright is attached wrightwiki. MacFan4000 (talk) 17:47, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

List of Stewards[edit source]

Where can I find the read only version of the wikitext to create the {{List of Stewards}}

Template:List of Stewards ? -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 18:03, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

I'm grateful for your diplomacy[edit source]

I wanted to thank you for reaching on concerning the recent issues on Miraheze and showing a lot of calm reason and diplomatic tact, your efforts at keeping the peace and clearing up misunderstandings deserve to be lauded.

I only regret WikiLove is not on Meta at this time, I'd give you a snazzy barnstar to go with my words. GethN7 (talk) 18:52, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

I also appreciate your efforts ND. LulzKiller (talk) 19:31, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks very much for it. I will be trust. MT7 (talk) 12:28, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi NDKilla friends[edit source]

Can you give me IPBE too such as MT7. Thanks for attentions :) H1 (talk) 02:30, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Returning to Miraheze as User:GFN[edit source]

Hi NDKilla, I'm returning on a permanent basis as GFN, and I'd like my Wiki Creator rights re-added on that account; and this account relocked. Thanks! Sammy (talk) 00:41, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Please comment here on that account agreeing you control both accounts and that you've read the wiki creators guide (I believe it's had some minor changes). I'll lock this account per request. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 00:43, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Confirming I own this account per request. GFN (talk) 00:46, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

WikiCanada steward rights[edit source]

Please remove your steward rights on WikiCanada when you are done with CU. Amanda (talk) 21:24, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, thought I had. Page was open with the rights removed and reason specified but I never clicked submit. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 22:32, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

Table of extensions and wikis[edit source]

Has anyone created at tabular view of wikis and extension?

How would you determine which wikis are using a given extension?

Rsterbal (talk) 12:09, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) A table of all wikis is located at Special:SiteMatrix (alternatively Special:WikimediaWikis). The wikis in the table that are crossed out are wikis that have been closed and are eligible for adoption. A list (though not a table) of extensions is available at Extensions, which include installed extensions and declined extensions. I don't see a need for a list of what wikis are using what extensions, as this would be ridiculous to maintain and update, and such a list exists in the GitHub configuration. -- Amanda (talk) 12:58, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

Checkuser[edit source]

Hi,

I know you mean well, but in the future please don't run CU on WikiCanada without telling me first. -- Amanda (talk) 16:02, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi, until a global regarding Stewards' use of the tools is adopted, I will use the tools to prevent disruption to the services. I globally blocked a web host after running a CU on a single user on your wiki. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 16:04, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
I understand that, and that's what I expect. However, all I'm asking is that you please leave me a message before running CU. While under most circumstances I will agree with the CU, there may be times where I don't feel that there is enough evidence to run CU, and in those cases I may decline the use of the tool. Eventually this will be a local policy of WikiCanada. -- Amanda (talk) 16:33, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
With respect, Amanda, you are not staff. NDKilla is, and if he needs to use CU to ensure the safety and continued security of the wikifarm, its users, or its data, then it's his prerogative to use those tools, unless a change in policy changes who uses the tools. And even if that happens, I, you, and everyone else who is NOT staff agreed to be beholden to Miraheze when we used this service, and thus staff of Miraheze may do as they see fit to make sure our usage of this place continues without a hitch, and if they have to run a CheckUser to do so, we have no right to object, unless it can be proven it was unnecessary, and neither of us are in a position to make that determination. GethN7 (talk) 20:42, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi[edit source]

You told me to message you, so there you go. Lol Samuel (talk) 03:53, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Confirming for relock[edit source]

Yep, it's me and I request to be relocked Samuel (talk) 18:50, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Wiki creation change[edit source]

Hi,

Please note that there has been a change to CreateWiki, and now you do not need to notify the users manually, all you need to do is have the "Notify" button checked on Special:CreateWiki, and this will be done automatically. If there is any confusion please read Meta:Wiki creators guide

More spam[edit source]

The last two user pages created on Meta (in the 11:00 hour UTC) are obvious commercial spam (for the same website) dressed up as bona fide introductions. Spıke (talk)16:26 15-Sep-2017

Request[edit source]

Can you rename me to something like "renamed user"? Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sro23 (talkcontribs)

It might be a better idea to make this request at Stewards' noticeboard in case another steward might take care of it. Reception123 (talk) (C) 08:10, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

Seems like we finally got peace and quiet[edit source]

Apparently that RFC finally made LP realize he isn’t welcome here, I mean, I haven’t seen any spam after it was closed—WEMO666 (talk) 07:16, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

There wasn't spam before it. Confirmation bias hits hard - plus that RfC showed up deep differences not strong consensus for 'no'. All it showed it people who oppose it, oppose it. Those who support it, argue it. John (talk) 10:43, 25 November 2017 (UTC)
There was near unanimity that misconduct had occurred and the differences were about how to react to it. There was significant argument on both sides, not merely opposition for opposition's sake. Spıke (talk)10:52 25-Nov-2017
Please do not give recognition which they want. Ignore them. — revi 14:13, 25 November 2017 (UTC)
I’m not giving them recognition, I was just pointing out something—WEMO666 (talk) 16:49, 25 November 2017 (UTC)
Just forget about it until they appear. They won't disappear in the near future, from my experiences with other trolls. Read Wikipedia:Deny recognition, a good essay. — revi 16:51, 25 November 2017 (UTC)
I'd also like to ask you to not provoke the spammers. Saying stuff like "Oh I'm happy there isn't more spam" or "they finally went away" or anything related doesn't help, it actually provokes the spammers to continue. Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:57, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

NDKilla, cheers on your investigative work. Several times at Wikia Uncyclopedia (where I didn't have checkuser), I lengthened bans that I thought were being evaded, when it was probably just Darthpedians watching the drama and then jumping in and imitating the banned user out of the joy of causing more drama.
