ManageWiki problem[edit source]

Hello, there is a problem at https://xen.miraheze.org/w/. Some rights that only administrators have are all users. Bureaucrats can edit ManageWiki but bureaucrats in this wiki are inactive. Can you see it? Thanks! Fffv7787 (talk) 11:22, 21 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

CAPTCHAaaargh![edit source]

Hi R, so I have a small userbase booting (for security, ironically) from live CDs with SeaMonkey 2.35 (=Firefox 38, roughly) and these are not now CAPTCHA capable. I have noted mh:meta Stewards'_noticeboard/Archive_5#Remove_Captcha_System but also mh:meta Meta:Autoconfirmed_users which seems to suggest I can work around this problem by having my users create their accounts and emailing my bureaucrat to add them to the 'confirmed' group. Two questions:

  • Will this work reliably?
  • If so, which page of the documentation elaborates on 'most', as in "Autoconfirmed users are no longer required to enter a CAPTCHA for most events."

The really ghastly no-no is the 'new external links' trigger. I'm currently advising people they'll have to stick a space in the URL before the :// to 'hobble' it, but it's going down like a lead sodding balloon, believe me. Best wishes, -Mark D CllrEMD (talk) 20:32, 1 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I don't think this problem is quite that severe, but it would be useful to know if CAPTCHA challenges can be disabled entirely on a given Wiki (ie for logged-in users)? -S Ftwm (talk) 18:25, 7 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Ftwm: Yes, it's possible to disable CAPTHCA all logged-in users, you just need to add 'skipcaptcha' in Special:ManageWiki/permissions for that group. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:37, 7 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Heyy[edit source]

You able to make an Ahmencyclopedia article about case sensitivity? The subject is about what defines whether uppercase and lowercase letters are treated as distinct. 2604:3D08:6286:7500:4068:146C:8B68:E029 03:00, 18 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry for the late response, I'm not entirely sure what you mean. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:16, 23 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Request[edit source]

Hi, how are you steward?

I asked for five wikis (I think this is the right number), in different languages, but with the same purpose and category. The goal is to make the wiki I manage multilingual. I ask that some admin put me as an Interwiki Admin on each of these wikis. I already have over 500 edits (22,000 globally, with 20,000 on this wiki and another 1,000 globally) and I intend to be an interwiki administrator for all of these wikis. Do you help? thanks

And about the my time... today is Saturday. Feel free to ask any kind of question at any time. Today I have nothing to do.--YellowFrogger (talk) 03:14, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@YellowFrogger: Please more that Reception is not a Steward and therefore won't be able to assist you in this endeavor. Try asking on the Stewards' noticeboard. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:16, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
