Can you help me please[edit source]

You have made the wiki: yugioh.miraheze.org for me. Can you make the admin links for me. Thank you European (talk) 16:26, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Background for wiki?[edit source]

Hi another thing. How do I change the background for my wiki. Can I also change it in an other color (Example: Brown ore with a background from yu-gi-oh the game) Here you have an example: http://battlestar.wiki/Accueil European (talk) 16:31, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Please search "Skins" on https://mediawiki.org as I'm not sure what skin you need. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 16:43, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

I want the same skin as http://battlestar.wiki/Accueil. And later I wants to edit it for the colors. I don't know if you can make it for me ore? European (talk) 16:54, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

@European: For that you need to copy paste http://battlestar.wiki/MediaWiki:Common.css to your wiki with the file name also being "MediaWiki:Common.css". Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 16:58, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

I have done that but it don't work. Maybe I did something wrong? https://yugioh.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Common.css&action=edit 17:07, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

@European: Sorry, I forgot about http://battlestar.wiki/MediaWiki:Monobook.css , I have added this to you. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:23, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Do I have something to do ore, ctrl and F5 and then you can see the result? European (talk) 17:29, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes, you should. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:45, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

I have done that but don't work. Maybe I have to wait a minute. Õhw and do you know what happened with miraheze 5 minutes ago? The page don't work. European (talk) 17:47, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I made a change to something and there was an error, so this got the site down, I am very sorry for any inconveniences that this caused. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:48, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Am sorry but the wiki don't work with the CSS. European (talk) 17:51, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

CSS skin[edit source]

Can you maybe look one more time for me. I want the same skin as http://battlestar.wiki/Accueil. but that you already know. European (talk) 18:15, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I will keep looking but I'm not sure I can tell how to change it. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 03:49, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
It worked now! :) Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 03:55, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Thank you!! But what was the problem? European (talk) 08:59, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

I forgot to add some .css pages. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 16:40, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Special:RequestWikiQueue/1706[edit source]

Hello.

First, thank you for creating the wiki.

Well, I have a favor to ask of you about Special:RequestWikiQueue/1706. Can you change the Sitename of this wiki? (ram → Rampdia)

Thanks.

p.s. If setting "Private" of wiki is yes, anyone don't read it? --Garam (talk) 14:24, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

@Garam: I will change the sitenotice now, and yes, if it's "private" no one but you, and members you select can read it. If you want this to change please ask me, and I will change it. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 14:25, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you! But I don't need setting "private" as "yes". :) Thanks. --Garam (talk) 14:30, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
@Garam: So you want me to set it to "public"? Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 14:33, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes. :) --Garam (talk) 09:47, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

I have one more question. Why do i not use the mediawiki:Wikimedia-copyright (like Wikipedia) in my wiki? Thanks. --Garam (talk) 09:47, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

You need to choose which license you want. Please tell me which one so I can change it. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 15:08, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
@Garam: MediaWiki:Wikimedia-copyright is specific to wikimedia sites (apparently). See this link for a list of the 4 copyright notices in affect on your wiki. The license footer can be changed on request, or you can edit those interface messages. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 15:23, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

@NDKilla I do understand it. Thanks! :) --Garam (talk) 07:09, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

I need to create a private wiki.[edit source]

See User:Guy vandegrift for why. I am a physics professor at Wright State University Lake Campus, on the editorial board of the Wikijournal of Medicine and a Custodian on Wikiversity.--Guy vandegrift (talk) 15:22, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Your wiki is private. You are the only one that can currently see it. To make more people be able to see it you can add them to the "member" group. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 15:23, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Also, to request other features (usergroups), etc. please make a request at Phabricator Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 15:25, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your rapid reply :-). I am confused. If you look at the history page of <code>https://wikiversity.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page</code> you will see that I logged off and not only saw the page, but made an IP edit. I did it from a different computer using the same wifi in our home. --Guy vandegrift (talk) 15:39, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
This is because it is the Main page, which is view-able by all users and IP's (except if you redirect it to another page). Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 15:42, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Problem solved. Thanks. --Guy vandegrift (talk) 21:07, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

What group to be allowed to use Renameuser extension[edit source]

Hello Reception123,

Thanks for your help for the Logo and favicon : )

I made a mistake when creating an account for someone : I created two for her. Jennifer and Jennifer L on cnv.miraheze.org .

Is it possible for me to use the Renameuser extension ?

What group should I be in for that ?

And if it's not possible, could you rename Jennifer L to Jennifer ?

Thanks !

--Dieudo (talk) 03:45, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Only Stewards can rename people, as it is globally done on all Miraheze wikis (@John: @Southparkfan: @NDKilla: ) Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 05:43, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
@Dieudo: Jenifer L can't be renamed to Jennifer because the latter account already exists. If you created both, just give them access to the first account. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 14:39, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, I was confusing usage with https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:UserMerge . But you're right, it's no big deal ; ) --Dieudo (talk) 18:59, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Would like to add 7 students to this wiki[edit source]

I am an instructor with 67 students, but would like to start small this year and add only the 7 in my smallest class. I will include them in Wikiversityprivate. Is that OK? A related question you don't need to answer right now is how fast can or should Miraheze grow"?--Guy vandegrift (talk) 14:29, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

To clarify on the question that does not yet need to be answered, can over 100 students register new private wikis each year so that they can do their lab reports? If not, how can I help Miraheze grow to the point where such action becomes routine?--Guy vandegrift (talk) 15:39, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
@Guy vandegrift: Anyone can request wikis, and how many they need, we don't have limits currently. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 15:57, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
@Reception123:I have 2 questions:
  1. I have decided that I want to volunteer, specifically in the area of helping newbies set up their accounts if they are using this for educational purposes. I am not much of an expert in wiki software, but I am a custodian on Wikiversity and also very active there (see either this or this). I teach at Wright State University and all my courses use Wikiversity exclusively (see this or this). I believe Mirahenze can play a major role in how university education is structured. I can imagine a day when virtually every college student on earth has a private wiki where they do the bulk of their assigments, with the best work being published as pages in Wikipedia, Wikiversity, or perhaps in a refereed journal such as the WikiJournal of Medicine.
  2. I am having difficulties registering people on my private wiki (Wikiversityprivate). The problem is logged at https://wikiversity.miraheze.org/wiki/User:Guy_vandegrift#Question:_I_need_help
Yours truly --Guy vandegrift (talk) 15:04, 16 September 2016 (UTC) (AKA wikiversity:User:Guy vandegrift)
@Guy vandegrift: Hello. I am sorry that you're having trouble registering users. To create an account you need to go to Special:CreateAccount and to request a wiki to Special:RequestWiki. For adding members to your wiki (or other wikis) you go to Special:UserRights and add them to the member group. If you still don't understand something please feel free to ask. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:16, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
Austin Smith is registered on https://wikiversity.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page. But when I try to register User:KTangeman26, ng18 , CRind , Emily_R, and Brack_Attack25 onto wikiversity.miraheze, my Special:UserRights page replies: "There is no user by the name "CRind". Check your spelling." I even tried to go into Special:CreateAccount and create the account for CRind, but was told "Username entered already in use. Please choose a different name." The students created these usernames in class, using words like "Test" and "wiki" to create the pages.--Guy vandegrift (talk) 18:46, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
This is because they first need to login to the wiki (wikiversity.miraheze.org) Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 18:53, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. I will have them log in when I meet them on Monday.--Guy vandegrift (talk) 19:01, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Equations not always parsing[edit source]

I want to emphasize that fixing this problem is less important than ensuring the health of this wikifarm, because such technical problems eventually get fixed, while this Miraheze farm has yet to become as established as it needs to be. Someday, I hope this farm (or one like it) becomes larger than Wikipedia! I am a strong supporter of open-source college educaton and can imagine a day when virtually all classroom assignments are done by students in wikitext, and privacy is essential for that to happen. That would involve hosting as many as 20 million wikis!!!

With that long-winded introduction, the equatons at

https://wikiversity.miraheze.org/wiki/Bell%27s_theorem_on_a_violin_string/Part_1#Alternate_forms_and_Dirac_notation

were not parsed as I am writing this, and they were written over 12 hours ago.

I noticed from the beginning that miraheze is slow to parse equations, and have a simple workaround for this current project. The workaround is kind of complicated, but involves a mirror site at Wikiversity. If you can fix this problem soon, great! But I will assume you have more important things to do if you don't. As I was attempting to research Miraheze, I discovered that a person with your username attempted to publish an article at wikipedia:Draft:Miraheze. I imported the Wikipedia draft into Wikiversity and checked the new history page, and that is how I discovered how Wikiversity's Reception123 ran into a couple of head-strong Wikiversarians a while back. If you are the same Reception123, you should know I am much easier to get along with, and look forward to a long and beautiful relationship with Miraheze.--Guy vandegrift (talk) 18:34, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello again. I agree that this Math parsing problem is important to fix and therefore will make a Phabricator ticket about it, so someone can look into it. Thank you for supporting Miraheze! Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 08:42, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
It is unlikely that students will rely much on the Math extension anytime soon, but a few colleagues and I are attempting to collaborate scientifically; one lives hundreds of miles away. If we get the paper published, I will request an acknowldegment to Miraheze for sponsoring this collaboration. --Guy vandegrift (talk) 10:14, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Questions about wiki[edit source]

Hi, I just began to use Miraheze's wiki that was created for me, but I couldn't the button „refresh page“ or sth that removes the cache (is useful in modules to recompile them). Or do I need an extension for this?--Zygimantus (talk) 20:09, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you mean. Did you try F5 or Ctrl + F5 for this? Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 08:54, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes, it worked, but it took some tries.--Zygimantus (talk) 11:07, 24 December 2016 (UTC)

Question[edit source]

What is the effect of my confirmation? What can I instantly became steward? If not, I will not waste time and show all to them that I worked in miraheze. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MT7 (talkcontribs)

If you did not state that you were a steward and had elevated rights there would be no need for a confirmation, but as you did we need to know if these statements are correct or not. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 13:13, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

Tidying up unused categories on user pages[edit source]

I was just wondering what Miraheze's stance is on multiple unused categories on user pages. The following two users User:Materials and User:Heaven2eleven have several unused categories that do not seem to enhance Miraheze in any way. It is not directly evident that these are categories with an intended purpose on Meta or if they are for personal/testing purposes. Can these these be removed to reduce the number of Wanted Categories? Thanks. Borderman  talk | contribs | email 21:46, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

I agree. I will proceed in removing these categories. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 21:46, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
I have also removed the userpages as one of them was only made up of these categories and one was used for advertising purposes solely. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 21:49, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. They did look suspiciously like advertising but thought it best to ask first. The wanted categories are slowly coming down. If I see any more I'll let you know. Borderman  talk | contribs | email 21:54, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

Typo in Wiki Request[edit source]

Howdy,

I'm the bureaucrat and founder of https://rhiliannexud.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page. I just noticed that I made a typo in the link. It was supposed to be either Rhiliannexus.miraheze.org -or- rialiannexus.miraheze.or. Is there a way to edit this to fix it, or should I submit a new request for wiki, migrate any changes to the new link, and then request the old one be deleted? Thanks Kin Ele Tic (talk) 21:04, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

@Kin Ele Tic: Hi. Would it be fine to request create a new wiki with the same name? Changing the database entry is also possible, but it would take a bit longer. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 10:32, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
Reception123: I'll request a new one with the correct name. Just wanted to make sure that was OK and I wasn't breaking any rules by doing so. Thanks! Kin Ele Tic (talk) 14:04, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

Phabricator[edit source]

If we can't create personal Phabricator calendar events, how else do we change our "Availability" field on our profile to indicate when we are not available? Amanda (talk) 10:56, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

I don't see why the "availability" is so important but unfortunately I don't think there is another way. The reason personal calendar events shouldn't be created is that other people on Phabricator aren't interested in personal events, and the Calendar is used for public Miraheze events. If everyone created their personal events, it would be full of events and would be messy. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 10:58, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

How can I change my wiki logo and favicon[edit source]

(talk page stalker) As noted on John's talk page, can you please just stop this discussion? You were banned from chat for being disruptive and you have continued the same type of behavior on-wiki. If this doesn't end I wouldn't blame an admin if they blocked you. I know that I personally would block you. -- Amanda (talk) 11:18, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
@Amanda: You are not a Meta sysop nor any other staff member so all the things you are saying here are not your call to make really. The "I would block you personally" is also not okay to say, as it is provocative. Please refrain from commenting on talkpages if you have nothing to add from a user's point of view.

Wiki Request[edit source]

Hey there,

I mistakenly requested a new wiki at a custom domain (request 3034).

Could I request that the domain be, rather, a subdomain styled as: overon.miraheze.org?

Thanks for your time.

All the best, -Veldias

DNS Configuration for New Wiki[edit source]

Hello! You created a new wiki for me earlier today (#3035, arms.institute). I can visit it at armsinstitute.miraheze.org, and I've configured the arms.institute domain to use ns1.miraheze.org and ns2.miraheze.org as its nameservers at my registrar, but it seems like there are no DNS records.

https://www.whatsmydns.net/#NS/arms.institute

https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/arms.institute

Also, please configure SSL via Let's Encrypt.

Thank you!

Request for adding extension to my wiki[edit source]

MediaWiki has an extension called "YouTube" the extension page, how can I enable the "YouTube" extension for my wiki? DoerNoc (talk) 16:10, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

We are currently working on an extension for this. You would need to make a pull request here (under wmgUseYoutube). If you do not want to, do not have time, or whatever reason please tell me your wiki name and I will do it for you. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 16:18, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Doing a pull request will register my username and my photo profile, in order to keep anonymous, I won't do that. Here is my wiki name "Wikiletras". Thanks. DoerNoc (talk) 17:09, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Your identity would still remain anonymous (same as on-wiki) as you do not need to have a profile photo of yourself, it could just be an avatar (all the staff have avatars as well). Anyway, I have enabled YouTube on your wiki. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 05:23, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, could you enable the extension DynamicPageList? that extension allows to show all pages listed in a category in the main or other pages. Check the link of the MediaWiki extension. DoerNoc (talk) 17:09, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
Enabled. Next time please request here, as more people can take care of your request rather than just on my talkpage. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:36, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the link. DoerNoc (talk) 13:38, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Infoboxes[edit source]

Can you may add infoboxes to this wiki, It keeps showing this error: https://alteriwiki.miraheze.org/wiki/Template:Infobox, Thanks in advance. European (talk) 17:21, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

@Void: can help you, as I'm not too good with infoboxes. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 05:21, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
@European: You need to import Module:Infobox, Module:Navbar, and Module:Arguments from wikipedia. Basically, anywhere you see "Script error: No such module "Something"", this means that you need to import Module:Something from an external source. I also strongly recommend importing MediaWiki:Common.css, or at least everything from /* Default style for navigation boxes */ up to, but not including /* 'show'/'hide' buttons created dynamically by the CollapsibleTables javascript */. If you need any help, be sure to let me know. Cheers -- Void Whispers 19:17, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

I still don't understand, Can you may help me to add all this stuff to the wiki? It would be a lot easier for me. Frestovenia (talk) 12:07, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

All of the modules you need should have been imported. All you need now is for a local administrator (sysop) on the wiki to import MediaWiki:Common.css. This will make it so that Infoboxes will display properly. I've made it so that Template:Documentation does not require modules to function, but that's all I can do. Cheers -- Void Whispers 16:24, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

Private wiki[edit source]

One question[edit source]

I was looking at the create wiki special page and its pretty easy to understand, however, want do I put into the "database" name field. CnocBride (talk) 21:50, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

@CnocBride: In the wiki requests that you attend, clicking on "Create wiki" in any request, that is filled automatically (unless the user requests a custom domain). The name of the database is the URL of the wiki + the wiki suffix (for example: metawiki = meta.miraheze.org, thiswikiwiki = thiswiki.miraheze.org). In the case of custom domains, this field must be filled manually following the above (for example: example.com = examplewiki, thiswiki.tk = thiswikiwiki).

CnocBride (talk) 18:12, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

@CnocBride: That sounds great, your help would be really appreciated. First of all you should probably read Contributing and Tech:Change a wiki's logo, then, as most of us did, you just learn from seeing someone else do it, and from experience. Please tell me if you have any questions or if there's something you don't understand, and I'll be happy to help. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 18:23, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
I do have some experience with Mediawiki (very little experience, like the only experience I have is being able to modify the LocalSettings, nothing to complicated) and I have been looking at the configuration on Github it seems pretty easy to understand. I understand the basics of enabling a certain extension on a wiki. I'm sure I'll get it eventually. CnocBride (talk) 21:56, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Ok. If you want to help all you need to do is keep an eye on open Phabricator requests (or make a Herald rule that subscribes you and sends you an email) that have the "Configuration" project. You can start by trying to do your own task :) Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 06:35, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
Reception, I have made changes to the LocalSettings.php for my request on phabricator (no. T1995). I forked the LocalSettings and I have checked it to ensure its correct. It seems like it will work I just need to get approval from you's to merge it into your LocalSettings.php. I'm just having a bit of difficulty with this. Could you explain how I submit my changes? Cheers Miraheze Logo.svg CnocBride | Talk | Contribs 12:17, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
@CnocBride: It is easier (especially when you are learning) to use the GitHub.com editor. You will just need to go here and click the pencil icon, the rest should be automatically done since you already have a fork. After you're finished adding your changes, you scroll down and give a title to your pull request, then submit it. After that, me or any other sysadmins will check your pull request, and if there are no issues with it, will merge it so that it can be used.

P.S.: Your signature was missing a </span> tag at the end, making my message unreadable. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 12:33, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

Custom skins?[edit source]

Are custom skins allowed here? I made a number of modifications to Vector. Initially I only tinkered with the LESS files but then I started to hack the PHP as well to alter the layout, create a custom navigation, custom breadcrumbs and custom category pages. It's still kinda Vector. Kinda. Except not really. Zewas (talk) 15:16, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Yes and no. First of all, you would have to add all these changes to a new GitHub repository and give "Vector" a different name. Second, it will have to pass security review. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 18:05, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
Great! Thank you! I'll get back to you when the alpha version of the wiki's content is ready! That may take a few months though... Zewas (talk) 19:17, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
Please note that the extension review process also can take a while (and also that if the code is not secure, it could be declined). If you want better chances of the review being done by then, you might want to request it ASAP. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 19:19, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
Don't worry! I won't try to rush you. If the review takes a week or two or three or four, that'll be fine. I'm only in the first third of my project though, so there's no release date yet. This was just some basic research. Zewas (talk) 19:28, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

New wiki request[edit source]

Hi. I requested a new wiki from this wiki network, and my first request gave me a red notice (upon submission) saying "non-alphanumeric characters" are not allowed in the wiki (name?/url?). So I changed the url to lack a hyphen, but then got a red notice that told me I already submitted a request. 2 things:

  1. It may be less confusing if you prevent that "non-alphanumeric" red notice from appearing whenever you submit a new wiki request. Maybe instead put the warning in the submission form itself.
  2. How will I know when the new wiki is set-up? Will I get a message on my Talk Page, or do I have to constantly check the url I initially submitted? (I'd prefer a message on my Talk Page though). This is another thing that could be told in (or after submitting) the wiki request form. --UltimateKuriboh (talk) 19:13, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
  • No comment on your first question, but for your second one, wiki creations are always followed by a talkpage notification. Also, if you have an email attached to your account, you will also recieve an email notification. I personally have been trying to automate the (talk page) notification process, with some success. From what you've stated, it looks like we may need to tweak the submission throttle to only apply to valid submissions. However, you should be able to make your request again (if not, please supply us with any details). Cheers -- Void Whispers 22:06, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

For some reason I didn't get your ping on my meta page, but it came through to my email (where it was dumped to an obscure folder). I deleted the comment. Thanks for intervening. See here--Guy vandegrift (talk) 22:58, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
@Guy vandegrift: You did not get the ping on Meta because it's probably not set in your preferences. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 05:16, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
Here's a copyright question: A student wrote a term paper but forgot to release it to CC, but there was clear understanding that this is why I assigned it (I told the class they would be graded according to whether it promotes opencourseware learning) She left the college and I am unable to contact her. Two questions: Can I post it on a private wiki and state that it may not be copied and used without the author's permission (presumably under "fair use"?) If I can, is it permissible to post it on a public wiki in the same way? The purpose of publishing it is not to share information, but to show colleagues what a student can do with such an assignment. What she did was write 100 multiple choice questions, some good and some not so good, with an explanation preceding each question for an openstax astronomy book. --Guy vandegrift (talk) 23:42, 30 August 2017 (UTC)A
Hi! If you cannot get the permission from the original author, unfortunately, it cannot be on public wiki which utilizes Creative Commons. So answer for "If I can, is it permissible to post it on a public wiki in the same way?" is "no". (If your wiki is licensed under non-Creative Commons license, it's a bit different story.) Answer for the private wiki is bit complex: It may be permissible for you to use it under 17 U.S. Code 110. And because you are a professor and you got the material via assignment, I think we can assume you have implicit permission on the use of copyrighted texts. As such, it may be permissible to privately store it under (Non-Creative Commons way of course) and use it for class stuff only. I am not licensed to practice law anywhere, though. (Long way of saying wikt:IANAL) — revi 05:49, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
I don't see a strong fair use case here, though there may be one for private distribution. Especially not if you republish the whole thing. There's no problem in posting something under a different license on a wiki -- this is what the "unless otherwise noted" part is all about. Barring some kind of employment by the university, I doubt there's a legal basis for reposting this student's work publicly in the absence of explicit consent. On a private wiki? Well, teachers have been sharing student work and example tests with graders and grad students for centuries. --Labster (talk) 06:19, 31 August 2017 (UTC)
Solved! The student sent me and an active Wikiversity administrator permission to post it anonymously (see Wikiversity:File:Anonymous Life in the Universe.pdf). Also, FYI I posted something about Miraheze on the talk page to mediawikiwiki:Miraheze that I am certain will not be reverted at mediawikiwiki:Topic:Txcb22kem1b4jbp7--Guy vandegrift (talk) 15:51, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
@Guy vandegrift: Glad to hear that you figured it out! And thank you for the post :) Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:56, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi Friends[edit source]

Hello Reception. I would start contributing with wiki creator and I can help with create wiki (such as requested), and I already read the Meta:Wiki creators and Meta:Wiki creators guide. :-) Sptr (talk) 01:32, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Since it is sysadmins discretion, I'd say even though you're fairly new here, we could give it a try. I can technically grant the right, but it's easier if a steward does it, so I'll ask one. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:14, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Okay. I will wait :-). And I think can use a confirmed user group to exempt from captcha. But it no problem to wait for 4 day Sptr (talk) 10:25, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
I have not seen you active for the past days. Please show some activity if you are still interested in wiki creator. --Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:52, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Help needed[edit source]

Hi, I see you upgraded to the latest version of MediaWiki sometime in August. I'm aware of the tangent, but is it possible for you or another admin to help this guy? He's looking to move a wiki, but he's relying on that extension (I think with no other option) and having trouble with it. --UltimateKuriboh (talk) 01:45, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I'm not familiar with the AuthManager extension so I wouldn't be able to provide any good advice. --Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:23, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Helo[edit source]

Where is my rights http://test.miraheze.org

Yes check.svg Done. In the future please be patient. --Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:38, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Another copyright question[edit source]

A colleague wrote a sample lab that I posted at https://freecollegeproject.miraheze.org/wiki/File:WSUL_lab_report_template.pdf

Can I post this under "fair use" using his oral permission? Do I need to include his name? Can I post it as a Wright State Document (since I am an employee of that university?) If I can't post it on the public wiki freecollegeproject.miraheze, can I post it on the private wright.mirahez so I can at least show it to students during a lecture?--Guy vandegrift (talk) 12:44, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
(PS. Personal opinion) I'd prefer if it is written. commons:COM:Email templates is a good template, and it's easy to use. — revi 05:28, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
I am 100% committed to the survival of Miraheze. That means we can't take legal risks, but also that we shouldn't waste our time evaluating potential risks if there is another way. From my perspective, there are two possibilities: (1) Miraheze needs to be careful about copyright infringement, or (2) Many in Miraheze (falsely) believe that this caution is necessary.... I don't care which statement is correct, and don't want Miraheze wasting valuable time on this. In the future, I will post files with questionable copyright issues somewhere else, and link to them out of Wikimedia and Miraheze wikis. At the moment, the only place I know about is subpages to my university site at http://www.wright.edu/~guy.vandegrift/. Give me some time and I will move all questionable files there. At the moment, my university is too preoccupied with budgetary and other issues to notice. If you know of a better place where we can move these "risky documents", let me know.--Guy vandegrift (talk) 16:03, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
It took me a few minutes, but I think I found a good place for these files. So far, I only moved one, which is a link out of my main Wikiversity Lake Campus page, which now looks like this:
*Lab report template at two locations: obsolete and preferred

Importing problem[edit source]

Hi! I'm trying importing other page now. But everytime it's failing. What's wrong with me? user:ahmsaqib

TALK CONTRIBUTION 15:00, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

@Ahmsaqib: That is what I got the first time. Are you sure you did the export process correctly (Using Special:Export and Import)? Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:55, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

@Reception123:! yes, i'm sure. i did it perfectly everytime. but the message showing each time.user:ahmsaqib
TALK CONTRIBUTION 12:23, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

If there aren't too many pages I guess I could import them for you, but I don't see why it seems to not be working for you. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:28, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

@Reception123: i did try with one page only. but not working. user:ahmsaqib

DELETE my own TWO WIKIS[edit source]

@Reception: OK! leave it totally. If there is no solution.
Please, delete my two wikis : mywikiversity and wikisahaba. I requested these for test. THANKS for help and supporting!

Translator issue[edit source]

I noticed that "translate" right has been added to confirmed user group but I still can't update some outdated translations on the Main Page or CheckUser. When I try to edit the translations, it says "You need translation rights to translate messages."--Tiger (talk) 13:13, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

I'm not sure why since you're "autoconfirmed". To be sure, I've now made you "confirmed" so please try now. Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:52, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
I've just made a translation. Maybe the autoconfirmed group doesn't inherit rights that confirmed users are granted?--Tiger (talk) 22:17, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I realized. This was fixed by also adding it to the autoconfirmed group. Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:39, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
