I don't see my request for this wiki

--Grisby49 (talk) 11:41, 20 September 2015 (UTC)Grisby49

What a different of Miraheze et Orain

You are here and you are in Orain Actually Orain is HS,

What a different, who is better

--edited from IP 14:16, 19 September 2015 (UTC)Zazoult

Yes, Orain is currently down and may never come back again, if you would like a wiki here please [[|Special:RequestWiki|request here]]. Miraheze has a more clear goal.

(Traduction, Oui, Orain a des probleme et marche pas, peut etre sa va jamais marcher encore, si vous voulez une wiki ici clicker ici, Miraheze a un goal plus claire. --Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 14:19, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

--Zazoult (talk) 19:04, 22 September 2015 (UTC)Zazoult

Vous pouvez lire plus ici, mais c'est practiquement un editeur pour wiki plus simple d'utilisier que l'editeur habituel. Desolé pour mes erreurs en français. --Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 19:08, 22 September 2015 (UTC)

Et si on le fait installer, on peut utiliser les deux ? normal et visual editor ?

License change pending

Wiki: http://8station.miraheze.org

Hi. Some time ago I requested a number of features/extensions. One important feature for my wiki is a license change from CC-BY-SA to CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0 I would dearly appreciate it if you would put word through that this feature request is still pending. Cheers.

Orain backup

Hi, I left message on Southparkfan's talk page but it seems that he did not see it. Could you please let him/her know that please recover the back up for bus.miraheze.org from bus.orain.org and iqt.miraheze.org from iqt.orain.org. Please let him know asap. Thank you.

Inquiète

Orain et puis après Miraheze, est ce que réellement le problème est fini et loin derrière, parce que là j'ai eu peur de revivre la même chose qu'orain.

J'ai même installé mediawiki sur un serveur, bon c'est pas gagné, j'arrive pas à avoir tout, mais là pendant 3 jours le doute a été présent

--Zazoult (talk) 14:08, 7 October 2015 (UTC)Zazoult

Oui, malheuresement. Si vous voulez vous pouvez demander un backup (ca veut dire que vous pouvez avoir un fischier avec votre wiki) est ci quelque chose arrive vous alez avoir toutes votres pages sur votre backup. Vous pouvez faire cela ici. --Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 14:10, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Je vais tout migrer lentement, mais je pense que le patron de ce site devrait s'inquiéter si je peux en croire ce blog qui parle de l'attaque d'Orain et qui parle de votre dernière attaque

Orain Attacked and compromised

On a presque migrer notre site de généalogie, et là je vais migrer celui de la recherche documentaire

--Zazoult (talk) 15:34, 10 October 2015 (UTC)Zazoult

@Zazoult: Ok. Oui, je comprend tres bien que vous voulez migrer votre site, juste pour preciser que nous sommes un site separee de Orain.

P.S. : Vous pouvez me dire ou se trouve votre nouvelle site? --Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 15:36, 10 October 2015 (UTC) Sur livehost, il n'a pas tout à fait le même nom, en plus j'étais étonné de voir creersonarbre d'orain se retrouver dans les torrents de Archives.org...

Name change

Hi dear reception123,

Us gurls have finally figured out our name, parodilogically with corporate alphabetsoup: heist. Is it possible to rename our undisconnect.miraheze.org wiki to heist.miraheze.org?

Yes, it is possible. A sysadmin with root must do it. @Southparkfan: @John:. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 04:54, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Wiki request

Hi. May I know if my wiki request (#303) will be approved? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cat (talkcontribs)

It has been approved. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 14:55, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cat (talkcontribs)

Remember to substiture certain templates

Certain templates like {{Wiki created}}, {{Requestdenyhyphen}}, and even {{Welcome}} should be substituted (with subst:). When substituted, these templates are automatically signed, (Notice here how it has the ~~~~?) Also, they generally look better when subtituted. When editing a page to reply to these, the template on a page can be confusing. The expanded text will probably be more readable to new users. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 13:20, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

I never got what subst was for. Now I do! Thanks, will do! Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 15:54, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
Subst replaces the "{{Wiki created}}" on a page with the actual wiki code of the template (expanded). Anything users are meant to read as text should be substituted. Things like userboxes, layout, formatting, etc, should not be substituted. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 17:31, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Backup Progress

Hey Reception, I'm just wondering on the progress of my backup request. This is only a reminder, hehe; I don't mean to rush or demand.

Thanks for your continued support. Oberyn (talk) 22:55, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorry for making you waiting but backup's take a bit of time. I will remind a sysadmin. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 05:02, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

You do not have permission to add or remove user rights.

Hi! I have got a question. I tried to add other members of my wiki team through Special:UserRights. But it said that "You do not have permission to add or remove user rights." I would like to get this rights or to add my wiki team members.

Best regards. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AlexPak83 (talkcontribs)

@AlexPak83: Please try adding them using this link. If it still doesn't work please tell me. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 05:38, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Teammates cannot login into the wiki

After my teammate login the page says:

Ошибка прав доступа У вас нет прав на чтение этой страницы по следующей причине:

Запрошенное действие могут выполнять только участники одной из следующих групп: Администраторы, member

And english translation is:

Permissions error You are not allowed to read this page for the following reason:

The requested action is limited to users of the following groups: Administrators, member

However teammate account has all attributes and rights namely 1) администратор - administrator 2) member — Preceding unsigned comment added by AlexPak83 (talkcontribs)

@AlexPak83 and Reception123: I've begun looking into the matter. Are you sure the users on your wiki are logged in? Based on the fact that with the read right globally I can view pages and the fact that you can log in makes me not think anything is broken. I see you've assigned rights to 5 users. All of these users should be able to login and view pages. Note that they must go to "Special:UserLogin" on your wiki, log in, and then they will have the rights. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 13:35, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
Note that this might also have to do with with the fact that the language is in a non-English language. If the Special Login page has a different name, it may have to be whitelisted. I noticed that when I opened the wiki, I was already logged in (thanks to mw:Extension:CentralAuth|CA]]), but it still said I couldn't read. When I opened my preferences (to make sure my language was set to English, which it said it already was), and then went back to "Special:RecentChanges" and it worked. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 13:48, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Orain Wikis

Hi, I was redirected here from this 1 blog. Specifically, I'm wondering about what has ultimately happened regarding Orain Wik hosting. If you don't know, and you're not the owner of that blog, would you mind redirecting the owner to me? --UltimateKuriboh (talk) 00:20, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

@UltimateKuriboh: We are just former volunteers from Orain, the "owner" doesn't answer us anymore and we are not in contact with him currently. What we know is that Orain was hacked. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 11:53, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

In case it slipped through

Hi Reception123 ~~ I appreciate the work you do on this site, thanks for your dedication! I'm new to wikis, so I seek some guidance. I requested a wiki on 10 Feb and it is pending on 20 Feb. More recent requests by others have been approved (and some still pend) so I am pinging in case it slipped through, and I would offer more info if it would help you decide.
Here's the reference page: https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:RequestWikiQueue/488

Video extension

Hi Reception123. I'd like a video extension on my wiki (freecollegeproject) to play self-produced uploaded videos in mpg4 format. Can I upload videos to the Wiki or do I need to upload on a video platform (e.g. YouTube) and play the videos with a Youtube video extension? Thanks H (9:44pm EDT, March 22 2016)

You would need to upload via Youtube for the Youtube extension. Sorry for inconveniences, but the Youtube extension is the easiest and most secure for us. So do you want us to add it to your wiki? Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 05:43, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
@Reception: Is there a way to upload the video to the wiki without using YouTube? It would be more convenient for the users, instead of managing a separate YouTube account. Thanks H 11:52, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
@H: There is, only it would take a lot of time for us to find a secure extension, as I explained before. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 19:35, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
@Reception: Let's start with the YouTube extension and let's see how far I come. I may come back to you sometime in the future. Thanks for doing it.
Okay. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 12:12, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, it works. 14:03, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

A few questions

  1. How you guys do to prevent getting hacked again? I need a stable platform for hosting my pages.
  2. What to do if a Wikia user wants to move his/her wiki to here?

Thanks. --Yhynerson1 (talk) 13:34, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

@Yhynerson1: Hi, I am unfortunately incapable of answering as I am not in charge of the technical part of Miraheze. @John: or @Southparkfan: can help with that. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 13:36, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Hi:
  1. We have never been compromised or the victim of any hacking so in term of 'again' there has been no change. Although in general terms, we run up to date software, have in place tough security policies on the technical side, restrict access to only people to need it, encrypted and sign all out going and incoming emails and connections and maintain minimal user-facing services.
  2. They'll need to provide an XML dump of their wiki in order to move all the content from Wikia over to here.

Thanks you VERY MOUCH for the wiki!!! And Thanks to Miraheze for hosting !!! Argentine Social Help VERY THANKFUL!!

Very Thanks You for the wiki!!!
And also Thanks to Miraheze for hosting !!!
Argentine Social Help is VERY THANKFUL!!


And of course, THANKS FOR HELP ME DEVELOPING THIS WIKI...!!

Second...

Sorry my English is not good.
Perhaps there is someone who speaks Spanish to give me a hand?
Anyway, I will continue this way in English until I can get help in Spanish.

And finally
I do not see very well. And the large letters (uppercase) helps me see better and make fewer mistakes.
I always try to write everything in lowercase because in Internet the capital is reserved for angry. But I just do it to see better.
Sorry if some paragraphs wrote in the capital.

Is there any way to improve the wiki edit?


And... do not panic ....
We have to Organize the Argentine Help Information over a simple relational database (2 or 3 related files)
Iam not sure if I can do that in a wiki.
And I write an example of our needs here https://ayudasocial.miraheze.org/wiki/Discusi%C3%B3n:P%C3%A1gina_principal

Of course we have to index all the help places by

  1. Active or not
  2. Country
  3. State
  4. City
  5. neighborhood
  6. Kind of Help
  7. Avaible today

Coul you take a look and give me some advice? Thank you Again..! --JORGEFE (talk) 22:06, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Will request. Next time please request on our request requests site. Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 05:10, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Thank you

I also wanted to thank you for creating my wiki (aucele)! Thank you! --StephanieCorwin (talk) 05:45, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

Your welcome. Good luck! Reception123 (talk)(contribs) 06:15, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

CU page

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

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

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

Hi, I've been requesting "plazmaburst.miraheze.org" wiki creationg but got notification about "fabio.miraheze.org" 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 "plazmaburst.miraheze.org" for my game and so it can't have "fabio" instead of "plazmaburst" :P

Requested "plazmaburst.miraheze.org" 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)
Thank you, it works :) --Eric Gurt (talk) 12:18, 16 July 2016 (UTC)


Please edit the domain name

I don't want the (worldbattle.miraheze.org) but only (worldbattle.org) — Preceding unsigned comment added by European (talkcontribs)

As I said before please read Custom domains for worldbattle.org . You need to purchase the domain from another host, we don't give domains for free, we just host mediawiki. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 15:08, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
Oke. But how can I edit my toolbar and edit other things on my wiki?

A question

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:
Use Mediawiki:Sidebar. I will make a request for "Admin Links" extension. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 17:23, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Deny templates

Note that Template:Requestdenyexists, like Template:Requestdenyhyphen should be subsitited to be properly signed. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 18:27, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Hello I try to protect my pages but all users can edit it still. Can you tell me what I can do?? Oh and the logo error is solved :) European (talk) 17:56, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Can you please help me

Can you help me by making a template for me (Template:Country data Albania) I want flags on my wiki European (talk) 18:58, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

As I said above, try to look for the templates on Wikipedia, you should find them. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 03:48, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for creating my wiki, but how would I know it?

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)

It should have given you a notification on the top right of the page. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 03:57, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

NavFrame

Hi. NavFrame does not work. How Can I do it? (google translate) --Almor (talk) 14:00, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

@Almor: What do you mean by "it does not work"? Could you link a page where you tried it and it didn't work/gave an error? --Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 16:58, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

Requests for Wiki Migration

Hi, My wiki is at www,network.mwzip.com. Mwzip.com is shutting down. I have requested for aman.info.tm 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)
Hello.
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 "aman.info.tm", it redirects to "meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Miraheze". Is there any issue? --Amanjosan2008 (talk) 11:37, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
@Amanjosan2008: Please use https://aman.info.tm Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 11:39, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Background for wiki?

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)

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)

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)

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)

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)

What group to be allowed to use Renameuser extension

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)

Would like to add 7 students to this wiki

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)

Equations not always parsing

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)

Tidying up unused categories on user pages

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)

Phabricator

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)

@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.

One question

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).

RE: Email you sent me

In relation to the message you left on my talk page on my personal wiki, I have received the email. Yes it was in spam and I wouldn't mind helping out with Phabricator. Some training may be needed.

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?

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

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)

@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)

Another copyright question

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:

I've updated it to make more sense. DismissableSiteNotice is enabled globally, but that does not mean that it only applies to global site notices. -- Void Whispers 16:51, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

I see the distinction. There are a few typos left, such as a red-link to Content policy and "poliies" on the next line.

And here is a FAQ for you. Who is following me around on TheMirror and uploading a helpful photo just before I finish using Special:Upload? It seems that my File: namespace is a view to Wikimedia Commons, and if I should try to load a filename that they have, it recommends that I use theirs. Spıke (talk)00:27 23-Oct-2017

@Spike the Dog: This is because of InstantCommons which allows any non-WMF wikis to be able to use Commons files. If you don't need/want it it can be disabled. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:14, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

No, it's fine. It's helpful, just not explained anywhere. Spıke (talk)13:04 23-Oct-2017

Since more people have asked about this, it's a great question to be added to the FAQ. Reception123 (talk) (C) 13:06, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

Thanks; thought I was losing my mind, etc.; I propose this text to ask the question the way the reader would ask it, and provide specifics for the Phab request:

Why does it say the file I'm trying to upload is already there?

All Miraheze wikis begin with the InstantCommons extension installed, which gives wikis outside the Wikimedia Foundation access to media in Wikimedia Commons. When you use Special:Upload to add a photo to your wiki, the response suggests that the photo is already uploaded! This simply means there is a photo in Wikimedia Commons by the same name. You can use that photo immediately. Or, if you prefer your own photo, you can complete the upload. That name, on your wiki, will now refer to your photo.

If you don't want your wiki to work this way, then request that InstantCommons be disabled on your wiki.

Thanks for the more detailed explanation. The only thing I changed is the word extension, since it was transfered from an extension to an integration in the MediaWiki software. --Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:12, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

Miraheze on Wikipedia

I decided to add Miraheze to W:Comparison of wiki hosting services. I've added full citations on most information and everything is perfectly alright according to Wikipedia policy so no "notability" shit should be mentioned by some bureaucratic editors. Anyway, I just want to get the green light if this is ok? I just felt that Miraheze by far gives the best experience of running a Wikipedia style wiki and I believed Miraheze would be more discoverable if it was linked more on Wikipedia. Miraheze Logo.svg CnocBride | Talk | Contribs 00:12, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia is how I found out about Miraheze. It is a minor "notability" problem that most of your citations about Miraheze are citations from Miraheze, but the entries on the other services have the same problem. You should put your new entry in alphabetical order among the others. Spıke (talk)00:25 30-Oct-2017
I seen that I was only putting in Miraheze citations but I put an Alexa citation in as the site has a better ranking then some of the other sites listed. So if they want to remove Miraheze they will have to remove the rest which will not happen.

Someone reverted the edits, but I just left a message on their talk page. MacFan4000 (talk) 02:00, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
A bunch of us have been on the page and seem to be viewed as having a conflict-of-interests. It will take more than asserting that Miraheze is useful or friendly or all of the above. You will have to convince Wikipedians that it is notable, measured by presence in unaffiliated press articles that can be cited. They will not be interested in testimonials, no matter how many. Spıke (talk)02:30 30-Oct-2017
It's a good idea to want to add Miraheze to that page, only myself (and other users) have tried before, and there has already been a discussion about adding it (I did mention the Alexa ranking and other things, but that did not change their view). Wikipedia will only let the page be added if Miraheze gets its own Wikipedia page. We have tried that too, only it was declined since it was not "notable" enough, and didn't have enough sources (see here). We are now waiting for someone to write about us, so we can get a reliable source. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:12, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
Once again, that is complete utter bullshit (pardon my language). Miraheze only lacks a few citations but has a Alexa ranking than most sites. I will fight this Miraheze Logo.svg CnocBride | Talk | Contribs 10:29, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
@CnocBride: I hope we will convince them, but as I said there was already a discussion about this on Wikipedia. I provided many sources, and other wikis, but they apparently only want articles or "notable" sources. I'm not sure what we can do to convince them otherwise. I think that the table they have is unfair. My opinion is if they don't want to include some wiki farms, then they should just get rid of the page and redirect it to the MediaWiki.org one, but in it's current state it is unfair to non-profit farms or smaller farms (even though we do have higher Alexa rankings than others) which don't necessarily have the means to have many articles written about them. I'm not sure where it disappeared but you can see the discussion dif here, as well as this one. Reception123 (talk) (C) 10:39, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
Checked the article, its been reverted. I think I might propose the suggestion of redirecting the page to MediaWiki as it is unfair like you said. Miraheze Logo.svg CnocBride | Talk | Contribs 10:58, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
@CnocBride: Your most recent edit has not been reverted it seems. I propose that you explain the edit on the discussion page so that they don't revert it again. As I said, they should either have a wider inclusion criteria, or if not redirect the page. I doubt that they will let Miraheze on the list, so I think it will come to redirecting the page. Reception123 (talk) (C) 11:08, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
What Wikipedia pros are telling you there is what we are telling you here. The first draft of this article read like, "We have a club, it is a great club, here is how our club works." The latest draft reads the same way. It is totally written to induce people to use the site (a goal that I am totally supportive of) and not at all written to make the case that the site has attracted attention (apart from robots at Alexa). Site hits as measured by Alexa (and as easily faked by 'bots) are not their criterion. Wikipedia's policies are designed to frustrate its use for self-promotion (which I am sure they have concluded) and to advance its use as a measure of what is found noteworthy by the independent media. That is, someone in the press (that we are not paying) has to take notice of us as a wiki host. "Or it didn't happen." Spıke (talk)01:00 31-Oct-2017
PS @CnocBride: Has been reverted now, edit summary, "Create the page first." Persistence in violating Wikipedia policies is not viewed as a plus. Creating the page first won't work. What is missing is third-party coverage, such as notice in the press. Without that, nothing else matters. Again, the required emphasis for any article is not "Here is our swell wiki farm" but "Here is a phenomenon that the press noticed." Spıke (talk)01:06 31-Oct-2017
@Spike the Dog: Yes, they are looking for third-party articles.. Only I'm not sure where we could start, and how we could get that coverage. I have tried asking a few users who knew some local media, but there hasn't been any response. And for the article itself, once we have that source, could you maybe work on making it have less self-promotion and it being more Wikipedia like? Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:18, 31 October 2017 (UTC)
Forgive the slow response! electricity has been out here for 42 hours after a garden-variety windstorm and I am in my car with an Android tablet. Regarding gaining notoriety, you have my opinion in a prior conversation on a Noticeboard that one usually has to pay for it, though renting a Home Depot truck and careening down a bike path also seems to work. Someone needs to provide content of greater interest to the impartial observer than it is to the already-Miraheze user. Spıke (talk)02:36 1-Nov-2017
Am back on the grid now. I have indeed copy-edited W:Draft:Miraheze to read a little more smoothly and to gather together the parts that are very technical. I note in the edit summary that I don't claim my edit satisfies the Wikipedia Notability guidelines. The article's only two attempts to establish Miraheze's notability (All The Tropes and Professor Vandegrift) in fact do not show it is notable to anyone but its own users. That's the problem. Spıke (talk)22:32 1-Nov-2017
We're really looking for the "reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject." Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:26, 2 November 2017 (UTC)
Now, that is not the problem but a symptom. The problem is that Miraheze, while an excellent service provided by friendly people, has not yet done anything notable to the uninvolved, not even anything innovative except renounced fee-for-service, an experiment that might ultimately fail. If Miraheze ("over 2,000 wikis") had become such a factor that Wikia ("several hundred thousand wikis") stopped jerking around its contributors in the service of advertisers and corporate branding campaigns — and if some pundit or academic wrote a paper showing cause-and-effect — then that would be news. If the next jihadist used a Miraheze wiki to announce his murderous intentions before acting, then that would be news too. A private club, running smoothly in a corner of cyberspace, is not yet news.

Executive titles

My Phabricator task has become a springboard for resolving confusion on the differences between Admins, Stewards, and system administrators. I wish you would write a clarification, such as a bulleted list describing each title, at the end of FAQ#Who are these people?. Spıke (talk)15:27 7-Nov-2017

I agree it can be confusing for sometimes. Yes check.svg Done Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:14, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Thank you! (Did the Phabricator task lead to a decision, or just a tutorial?) Please consider my copy-edit of your list, correcting any misconceptions I still have. (PS--Perhaps the new stuff after the first paragraph is too detailed for the introductory section, and belongs at the start of Wiki management requests.

Who are these people?

Miraheze users are known only by their user names. A person uses the same user name on all of Miraheze's wikis. During registration, you pick your own user name. A Miraheze user may elect to disclose his own identity, but disclosing someone else's identity without their permission is a serious violation.

Some Miraheze users have acquired management titles. You should understand the difference in order to direct any request to the right group:

  • Stewards are responsible for matters concerning the Miraheze wiki farm, including events and proposed actions that affect all wikis; for instance, disruptive behavior on your wiki that you might not resolve sufficiently by your own administrative action there. You can contact them at the Stewards' noticeboard.
  • System administrators are responsible for technical issues and the correct functioning of Miraheze and its wikis. You can contact them via Phabricator (see below).
  • Meta administrators manage this "Meta" wiki, as you manage your own wiki. Meta administrators do not administer your wiki; you do.
  • The Miraheze community itself — all users, to the extent that they care to participate — assemble at the Community noticeboard, where you can discuss the future of Miraheze and observations on which you would like others' opinions.
I have implemented some of your changes. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:33, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

rfobasic

FYI, I've been having fun doing technical editing on this new wiki. It has attracted one review, but has attracted no registrations nor edits. The software project is stalled and we were left with a PostScript manual and an informal list of bugs. This wiki could be a way to make the manual live, to publish bugs in an organized way, and to publish specs for a follow-on software version, as there are at least two guys who could code it up. Unfortunately, nearly all that community is not native English speakers. They won't complete the writing, and if I do, I should (but won't) be paid enough to live on for one year. (No action required on your part.) Spıke (talk)14:07 8-Nov-2017

I'm not very sure what you mean by "It has attracted one review". Also, we use Phabricator for bugs, so I think that copying these bugs to Meta would have no sense considering they are already on Phabricator. Please explain what you mean by this more clearly. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:30, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

No, no, no, the topic of this wiki is not Miraheze or its software but the "RFO-BASIC!" interpreter for Android. The review was by one of their experts on their website. My comment doesn't mean there is a task for you guys but just to inform you of what I'm doing on that wiki. Spıke (talk)18:50 8-Nov-2017

Oh, sorry for the confusion then. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:52, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

SSL Certificate

I have searched high and low and I cannot find anywhere the type of server that is used for the wiki's. Just need to download my SSL Certificate to email to you, but don't know which is what. Apache vs Microsoft vs Other. PKCS#7 vs X509. Help?

Our web server software is NGINX. MacFan4000 (talk) 23:07, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
Please note that if you are generating a new SSL you also need the CSR which was given to you the first time you requested a custom domain. If you don't have it anymore, feel free to ask me. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:52, 16 November 2017 (UTC)
I used the original CSR for my domain, and had to select Apache for an HTTP certificate. The options for RapidSSL did not include NGINX, but as it is an HTTP server, I assumed this would work.
Yes, there shouldn't be any issue with the certificate. Please send it via email (to operations at miraheze.org). Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:27, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
