CU page[edit source]

Hi, is the PP intended to be striked or removed? Tropicalkitty (talk) 20:27, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

What do you mean by "PP"? Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 03:29, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
@Reception123: I'd assume @Tropicalkitty: meant Page Protection, but the page isn't protected, so no idea. Tropical, is this still relevant? -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 14:46, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Wiki-ul meu[edit source]

Bună! Am văzut că tu eşti unul dintre administratorii aici! De aceea vorbesc cu tine. Ţi-am cerut un wiki, poţi să-mi revizuieşti solicitarea? Şi dacă vrei, poţi să mă vorbeşti în română, pentru că şi eu vorbesc română. Pe curând! --Josep Maria Roca Peña (talk) 20:56, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Nu eram pe wiki la momentul acela, ți-a creat wiki-ul alctineva. Daca mai ai o întrebare poți să mă intrebi oricind. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 03:56, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Two of four requests completed - ticket closed[edit source]

Hi @Reception123:, many thanks for making two changes to the Metrolook skin as per my request on phabricator here. However, the Vector skin still appears to be the default skin on thelonsdalebattalion, not Metrolook. Also, the 'Create account' link is still there. I do not require other people to create accounts and edit the wiki. I am the only person creating/editing articles. Are the other two changes requested not possible? Or were they overlooked? Cheers - Borderman  talk | contribs | email 22:29, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

@Borderman: The Metrlook skin as default should be possible, I will make a request. For the Create Account we can't restrict creating acccounts on any Miraheze wiki. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 04:04, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
@Reception123:, I didn't realise that turning off account creation couldn't be done, is it because all these wikis are connected - switching the parameter to false turns account creation off on every wiki? That's a shame because in the past I had problems with spam accounts, which gets annoying after a while. Are there other options available to stop this from happening? Thanks, though, for the Metrolook as default request. Borderman  talk | contribs | email 11:47, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
@Borderman: You can prevent spam by restricting editing for users and only let the users you choose be able to edit. Or you can use Special:AbuseFilter. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 14:49, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
@Reception123: Thanks for the suggestions, I will look into it. Also thanks for making the Metrolook skin default on my wiki. Whilst editing I noticed the WikiEditor is no longer working and the old editor is in its place. Anything changed in the settings? Borderman  talk | contribs | email 12:10, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
I'd not suggest AbuseFilter, as while it is indeed cheap resource, but it can be very expensive when it is misconfigured. — revi 13:53, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
@Revi: I'm assuming you mean expensive in the sense it can mess your site up? If you knew they were configured correctly, i.e., copied from Meta or Wikipedia, then surely use of it would be ok. Borderman  talk | contribs | email 19:50, 17 July 2016 (UTC)
@Boderman: If it is copied from Meta and/or tested it shouldn't be a problem, but if not it could cause people to not be able to perform actions because of it anymore. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 07:47, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Got "wiki being created" notification about address/title I've never requested[edit source]

Hi, I've been requesting "" wiki creationg but got notification about "" wiki being created for me instead :) Not sure how this can happen but I don't even know what "fabio" is. Possibly this name had to be registered for someone else?

And yes, I've been requesting name "" for my game and so it can't have "fabio" instead of "plazmaburst" :P

Requested "" wiki still does not exist.

I am very sorry, I made a mistake. I have created the correct wiki now. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 04:03, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

Oke. But how can I edit my toolbar and edit other things on my wiki?

A question[edit source]

What happens to all wikis as miraheze stops working? Will my wiki still persist? And how can I edit my toolbar?? — Preceding unsigned comment added by European (talkcontribs)

I am not sure what you mean by toolbar. And we hope that Miraheze will never stop working. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:02, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
Toolbar Main page, Recent changes, Random page.... How can I edit that?? Because normaly users have an Admin link @European:

Thank you for creating my wiki, but how would I know it?[edit source]

First of all, a big TANK you for creating my wiki. But. I just happened to fall on a page wehre there was a list of wiki creations, so I discovered that mine had been created. But what should have I done, in order to know it, if I had not fidgeted with pages in a way that lead me there in a most fortuitous way? Was I suppose to receive a mail?

Thank you again for answering my question. Piero.caracciolo (talk) 16:12, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Hello, after creating your wiki I left a message on your talk page. --Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:17, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Double thanks. I didn't even know that such a page existed. Now I do. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Piero.caracciolo (talkcontribs)

Requests for Wiki Migration[edit source]

Hi, My wiki is at www, is shutting down. I have requested for custom domain wiki. I have following questions:

1. Do you provide FTP or shell access?
2. OR Do you have multiple file upload utility as I need to upload around 700 Images?
3. Can you help to import the MySQL DB instead of uploading XML imported pages?
4. Can you enable uploading of ".pcap" files extensions? --Amanjosan2008 (talk) 17:56, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
1. No, we don't provide this. You can make requests (see more at Request features and they generally are taken care of in less than 24 hours if they are straightforward)
2. Yes, MSUpload extension, you also need to request this.
3. We generally import XML dumps only. I will talk to @Southparkfan: and see if he agrees to doing the MYSQL DB (which would take more time than an XML dump)
4. It is possible. Please request it.

@Amanjosan2008: Please tell me or request at Phabricator if you would like me to enable MSUpload and if possible .pcap files. --Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 03:28, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Kindly Enable MSUpload extension & also permit uploading of .pcap files. I will try XML dump. If any issues occur, then only I will request for SQL import. --Amanjosan2008 (talk) 11:09, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
MSUpload and .pcap files are now enabled. Please preferably upload the dump to Phabricator. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 11:20, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for above approvals. My Webpage is not opening correctly. When I Open "", it redirects to "". Is there any issue? --Amanjosan2008 (talk) 11:37, 14 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: European (talk) 16:31, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

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

I want the same skin as 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 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? 17:07, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

@European: Sorry, I forgot about , I have added this to you. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:23, 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)

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)

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

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 !

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 . 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

@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 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 ( 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

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)

Email[edit source]

Sadly I never got the actual mail you wanted to send me, and I may check it from time to time, but I don't think I will come back, I feel unwanted in the organization.
Kind regards, ~ SleepyMode (talk) 15:24, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Wiki language[edit source]

Hi Reception123! thanks for create the wiki I made a mistake in the request form, i selected English as the language of the wiki. You can change the language to Spanish? My intention is to enter code in Spanish (example: assign category - category:whatever = categoría:whatever) sorry if my English is bad, and thank you for your time! --Ramiroserraj

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)
I can send myname at wmf via email.

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)

Bureaucrat Rights[edit source]

I am bureaucrat and founder in, but other bureaucrat removed my admin rights and banned me. Can you remove this ban? Sir Polskacafe (talk) 09:15, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Typo in Wiki Request[edit source]


I'm the bureaucrat and founder of I just noticed that I made a typo in the link. It was supposed to be either -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)
