Welcome to Miraheze[edit source]

Hello, {{subst:BASEPAGENAME}}, and welcome to Miraheze! Miraheze is a free, non-for-profit wiki hosting service. If you would like to start a wiki please fill in this form or, if you'd like to contribute to an existing wiki, please see a few wikis here or the full list of wikis here. Note that (private) wikis aren't accessible unless you are given access, and closed wikis cannot be edited.

For more information, please see our FAQ. If you have any additional questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to contact us.

You are encouraged to create your user page, whether here on Meta (visible only when on Meta), or your global user page that visible on any Miraheze wiki where a user does not have a local user page and provided that the wiki has the GlobalUserPage extension enabled and, additionally, where the wiki is not using the SocialProfile extension. Should you decide to create [[mh:login:User:{{subst:BASEPAGENAME}}|your global user page]] on Loginwiki and wish for it to replace your Meta user page, simply add the {{delete}} template to the top of [[User:{{subst:BASEPAGENAME}}|your Meta user page]] by copying and pasting this code ({{Delete|1=Author requests deletion, or author blanked.}}), and an administrator should delete it promptly (usually within 24 hours).

If you have any questions, after first reviewing FAQ and the help center, please don't hesitate to ask at the community noticeboard, but please be sure to end all new topics or replies you make on talk pages, user talk pages (like this one), and noticeboards with four tildes ({{subst:nft}}) to include both (a) a username and (b) a properly formatted timestamp for our talk page archiving bot.

@8ight: Do you just message random people who haven't talked to you at all? Naleksuh (talk) 02:11, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
It is a sign of welcoming someone to the community. I see that nobody welcomed you, so I'd thought of being the first. --8ight (talk) 03:36, 18 January 2020 (UTC)
It's pretty common on wikis (whose theme, remember, is shared editing). Unsolicited messaging happens obsessively on humor wikis (by way of "being funny"). By the way, I continued our earlier conversation on the article you created. Spıke (talk)03:45 18-Jan-2020

Patroller granted - 2020-10-11[edit source]

Hi, Naleksuh. 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) 22:39, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

Comment in RfP[edit source]

Your comment in RfP, about shortening response times. I have gotten quite a few complaints about that, and yes, I would like to get their wikis to them as fast as possible. BlackWidowMovie0000Editor (talk) 22:39, 22 October 2020 (UTC)

Just a Friendly Note[edit source]

Hi, this is a friendly note to let you know that Wiki Creators can directly create wikis from Special:CreateWiki. You do not need to request them if you do not want any second opinion. I hope this helps. R4356th (talk) 20:14, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

This is indeed true, but in practice, it is usually best to use Special:RequestWiki, so a request is created, as Naleksuh did. Special:CreateWiki is ideal for testing purposes, or where the request was made elsewhere (such as on a noticeboard or user talk page of some sort) that can be linked to elsewhere. It can definitely be used, as you rightly note, but yeah, preference is to use Special:RequestWiki if possible and then just approve one's own wiki request. Dmehus (talk) 20:21, 26 December 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: This is just a friendly suggestion for Naleksuh as doing so will just be helpful for him if he does not think he needs someone else to review his request. :) R4356th (talk) 20:25, 26 December 2020 (UTC)
@R4356th: Dmehus understood what you were saying, just that CreateWiki directly would not be ideal for that purpose. Naleksuh (talk) 20:27, 26 December 2020 (UTC)
Naleksuh, yes, I get that. :) R4356th (talk) 20:33, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

Just a Reminder[edit source]

Hi, this is just a friendly note to remind you that you have not yet de-Wikipediafied Twinkle's welcome message's revision summary. Please fix this when you have some time! Thank you! R4356th 2,942 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 10:45, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
