Dormancy Policy on my wiki

Hola, Quiero pedirte que mi wiki tenga una excepción para evitar su borrado. Será un almacén donde guardaré, recopilaré, desarrollaré y organizaré información relacionada a los proyectos donde estoy participando. --Wiki1776 (talk) 23:46, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

@Wiki1776: So should it be exempted because it is meant to be read, and you will not regularly add information to it? Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:06, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
Había olvidado esto. Al principio sí pero al final decidí que no sería leído por cualquiera. Retiro la solicitud. --Wiki1776 (talk) 18:09, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
Reception. Hablando de esto, estoy queriendo reorganizar mi wiki UnionNorteamericana (con el mismo tema) para que el nombre de la página fuera más corta. Pero a la vez quiero hacerlo en "limpio" para también reorganizar el contenido. Por tanto crearía otra wiki, haría un Phab con las extensiones y configuraciones que quiero y borraría esta que uso actualmente. Pero tengo una pregunta. ¿Que pasaría con Política de Excepción que tiene mi wiki? se podría "trasladar" al nuevo url? o ¿Preferirías eliminarlo? Espero tu respuesta. Gracias de antemano. --Wiki1776 (talk) 21:16, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
@Wiki1776: Si, si su wiki "nueva" tiene el mismo proposito, la excepcion puede ser "trasladar". --Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:20, 6 February 2018 (UTC)


Dear Reception123,

I have requested a feature on Phabricator. Please view it. --Vlad26t (talk) 15:34, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

I will look into it soon, if no one does. Reception123 (talk) (C) 19:35, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
What means "Assigned To" ? --Vlad26t (talk) 08:34, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
I would like to give my two cents here. It is in my view that asking configurator's to look at your request is quite disruptive and can be an annoyance. We have countless feature requests to process and we process all of them as soon as we can. Asking them to be looked at will not get them looked at any sooner, well by me anyway. Miraheze Logo.svg CnocBride | Talk | Contribs 17:56, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
Maybe, I know there are a lot of tasks, but we should still aim at completing them as soon as we can, as to allow users to continue their projects with the required extensions, logo's, settings that they need. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:05, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
When will you do the task? --Vlad26t (talk) 09:29, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
You still haven't done this task. --Vlad26t (talk) 09:49, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
@Vlad26t: Please note that hurrying this will not make it go faster. Unfortunately, your task requires more work than others, since we don't have it set up yet. I am not the only volunteer, and I did not yet find time to take care of your task. It will be done soon. Reception123 (talk) (C) 11:22, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:36, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
Oops, there is an error: Fatal exception of type MWException. --Vlad26t (talk) 13:43, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
If I want to log in, there will be error: Fatal exception of type MWException. --Vlad26t (talk) 15:59, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
You still haven't fixed "internal error". [1]: Fatal exception of type MWException. --Vlad26t (talk) 09:28, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
@Vlad26t: I will look, but it's better to open a Phabricator task for tracking purposes. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:07, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

User:Reception123/Sysadmin inactivity policy draft

I've read your draft. The one-month period for deciding Admin inactivity seems unobjectionable; likewise the discussion-and-voting to decide whether the Admin is inactive and whether promises to resume activity are credible. But it's not clear what the month is:

  • A lookback period during which the Admin must have been absent to be declared inactive?
  • A clock that begins to run following a claim of inactivity?

Related: Was there a complaint? Does one charge an Admin with inactivity? or declare that the Admin has been inactive for the past month?

Separately, you list four criteria (it is the plural of criterion, so you have grammar errors) to judge inactivity. A criterion is like an algorithm. There could be "criteria" for deciding inactivity, but your list of "criteria" is instead a list of forums, such as IRC. (The plural of this is "fora" but nobody knows it.) A given Admin might be active on some of the forums but neglect others. Do you intend to require that every Admin be active at all possible points of contact? (Has Discord become a fifth?)

I am not an Admin and have no disagreements with any Admin; I just wanted to give you more ideas to think about. Spıke (talk)00:34 26-Apr-2018

@Spike the Dog: Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on the draft. The "month" is a period when an Ops member thinks it would be appropriate to review activity, I don't think it's necessary to impose specific dates, it can be something that's done every 3 months or so. It's not really about "complaints", as I explained above, inactivity can be a security risk, and either way what is the point of having server access if you do not use it? And yes, based on this a user can be deemed "inactive".
As for the "criteria", what you mention about someone being active on some but not on others is why there are multiple ones. Server access and GitHub commits are important, as that is what you gain with access mainly. Phabricator and IRC are also important, though, because (at least I think so) it is very difficult to work on things without communicating with people and staff, and even if you don't necessarily do stuff, advising other people on IRC and Phabricator can still be very helpful. As for Discord, no decision has been made yet whether it is official or not, but either way, it will probably still be the same criterion "Discord and/or IRC". Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:51, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
Very good; perhaps clarify that, for instance, absence from IRC is not proof of anything if the Admin is continuing to participate. The criterion should be absence from everything. I don't think "it's necessary to impose specific dates" either, just be clearer about how absence becomes an issue in the first place. Cheers! Spıke (talk)13:59 27-Apr-2018

Custom Domain

I wanted a custom domain for my wiki. Since, I can't change the nameservers. I followed the section "If you can't change the DNS name servers:" in this link. Now my custom domain which is is pointing correctly to "". But MacFan4000 suggests (on Phabricator request T3040) to do something more, are you able to help in this regard? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gkatom (talkcontribs)

Funny I saw your message after I actually commented. Anyway, resolved on the task, MacFan4000 will take care of it later. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:22, 30 April 2018 (UTC)


  • excuse me timezone can also in management wiki change?--Msnhinet8 (talk) 23:15, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Re to your e-mail

Hi, thanks for your e-mail, and I'd like to make a response to it here.

  1. "Miraheze Commons" is a shared image repository that can be used for all Miraheze wikis. I have posted a proposal on the Community Noticeboard, so please see it for more details.
  2. I now understand why you're afraid of giving interwiki edit rights to all bureaucrats. Thus, I agree with the idea of creating a "trusted-interwiki" group, and will make an RfC as soon as I can (so is that the proper place for discussions? I thought the community noticeboard was the place for such).
  3. As for custom namespaces, I'll wait for your updates. Thanks.
  4. As for requesting vandalismwiki for an exemption, the problem is that I don't have any local rights there (which I must, according to the Dormancy_Policy#Exemptions_from_the_Dormancy_Policy). I'm just an ordinary contributor with no privileged rights, and I think the request won't be treated as legitimate.

Here's an additional comment for the servey. I recently found that the server sometimes goes down, displaying Error 503, and would like to request for improvement on this issue. Thanks.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 11:33, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

P.S. And now I found you already have posted the issue of interwiki links on Community Noticeboard. Thanks for that :)--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 11:36, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

You mean a Dormancy Policy exemption? Reception123 (talk) (C) 11:44, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

On Special:RequestWikiQueue/5471

Hi. I saw the request linked above, and found you saying it was done on the comment, but I can't find any logs showing that, with the status still being declined. Could you tell me what's going on? Thanks.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 11:11, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

@開拓者: The first comment was accidental, therefore the second comment stands. Sorry for the confusion. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:19, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

The survey

Hello! Regrettably, I was off-line for the entire duration of Miraheze's recent poll. I am grateful for Miraheze letting me open wikis and contribute content. The proprietors vary from cordial to very friendly and it's easy to tailor the websites as desired: The instructions are clear and, when they aren't, you guys have enthusiastically accepted my edits. The only thing coming close to a complaint is that it is hard to get the right people to make a decision for or against something. I saw this with my request for a change of username, a change to the interwiki links, and in the handling of a chronically disruptive user. I agree that the service has intermittent unavailability. This is not really a problem except that sometimes a page under edit times out and changes are lost; this doesn't happen on other wikis and Miraheze might re-code things so that browsers can save the contents of an edit window across an outage.

Am not excited about advertising my two Miraheze sites. The technical reference wiki is occasionally read by users of the product, and when they point out errors, I go in and correct it; the humor wiki seems certain to be read by no one. Consequently, I have been spending less time on it (no time on the humor wiki) and more time on a blog from a newspaper columnist with a small following.

Would I recommend Miraheze? I have done so, to a current Admin at Uncyclopedia as a way to save the English-language Mother Ship of that franchise from Wikia's rampant demands that it stop resembling Wikipedia, which is its goal, and start resembling other sites in the corporation's Teen Shopping Club. However, it was painful when the project split in two in 2013 and my friend is reluctant to consider splitting it into three!

Feel free to move these comments to any better location or ask for additional feedback. Spıke (talk)13:30 27-Jul-2018

@Spike the Dog: Hello, first of all, thank you very much for the response either way. I will address your concerns now. For the username change, the issue is the fact that, even though the account is inactive it is not very easy to "give away" someones user account. I think that now, since more time has passed, you could request it again on Stewards' noticeboard. As for interwiki links, it is being handled in the RfC. We are working on downtime, and there should definitely be less edit time outs. We are also working on statistics so you can see if there are users on your wiki, and for the record I have went on the humour wiki a couple of times :). Thank you for recommending Miraheze, and note that I'm always here to answer any more questions you may have. Reception123 (talk) (C) 13:39, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

My request

Hey there! A little while ago I put a request on the Community notice board about changing the URL to my wiki. You replied to it but never enacted the changes I requested. Here's the link to my request in case you forgot. Assuming everything is in the clear now, I was hoping you could do the changes whenever you can. Thanks and have a great day!--Jordan D (talk) 19:35, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

He asked you to do something, which you haven’t done yet. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 19:45, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
@Jordan D: Yes, it is easier for us to track if you put in the request on Phabricator, so please do so. Reception123 (talk) (C) 08:52, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

Site name change

Hi, I asked for my wiki site name to be changed to Wikipedia. Thanks! My site is at: Louise3 (talk) 10:55, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

@Louise3: Please remember to create a new topic, and also, there's no need to tell me twice :) Reception123 (talk) (C) 10:57, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

@User talk:Reception123 So can you change it to Wikipedia? Louise3 (talk) 11:01, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

@Louise3: Technically, yes. However, as I pointed out on the other page, I am awaiting the opinion of other staff members. Please be patient. Reception123 (talk) (C) 12:03, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
I think this is deliberately deceptive, like naming a wiki the "US Department of Defense Website". There is basically one Wikipedia and everyone knows what/where it is. The forks of foreign-language Uncyclopedias are more of a gray area; there are now forks everywhere, as Wikia/Fandom tries to force the originals to adopt the format of their Teen Shopping Club. Spıke (talk)13:20 1-Sep-2018
(talk page stalker) Naming a site “Wikipedia” is confusing at the least, if not deliberately misleading and possibly copyright infringement. -1. Amanda Catherine (talk) 13:27, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
Yes, those are good points. It would be like calling a wiki "Meta Wiki", it would just be to confuse users. Reception123 (talk) (C) 13:28, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
I think it's not allowed, because the name Wikipedia is copyrighted by WMF, according to this note.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 16:20, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
Due to the considerations presented above by the community, and also possibly copyright/trademark infringements, this request is currently X mark.png declined. Please reconsider your name. Reception123 (talk) (C) 19:07, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Problem with login

Hi Reception123, I'm Wiki Database, Unfortunatly i cannot log in anymore. I wrote down my login with password but it doesn't work. I don't understand... Is it possible to give me the same right to this account like for Wiki Database so i can be admin on the wiki database ( Thanks you so much in advance..--Databaseadmin (talk) 19:04, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

@Databaseadmin: Hello, are you getting an error for login? If yes, which one? Reception123 (talk) (C) 15:18, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
Hallo @Reception123: it tells me that the login is wrong but I cannot figure out what's wrong... Especially that i wrote down the password so i don't get how it could be wrong... Anyway the wiki is pretty empty. I mean it just bother me to ask again to create a new wiki... Kind of make no sens after all...--Databaseadmin (talk) 16:30, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
@Databaseadmin: Hello, the issue is that if you did not specify an email address on your previous account, there is no way for us to confirm that you are the same person. Therefore, you must understand that without any proof, any other user could claim this. So, for security reasons, I cannot grant access to the wiki. Since you say that the wiki is new, it is probably best to request a new wiki with your new account. Sorry for the inconvenience. Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:45, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
ok no problem. I just tought since the wiki is empty it doesn't matter but that's fine. Thank you so much for your help and I'm going to create aa new wiki ^^. Databaseadmin (talk) 05:58, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

I want to tell you that I am facing some difficulties in my wiki

Firstly I want to know that how I can add page sub heading like 'Indian author' or 'Poet' please tell me.

How I can connect my page to other languages page and active the mobile language button ?

I am facing a lot of difficulties in importing template infobox person from Wikipedia, please import it for me properly, which can be ready for use.

Thank you so much with due respect. Shaunak Chakraborty (talk) 16:49, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

@Shaunak Chakraborty: Hi, for subpages you need to use two equal signs == Title == . I'm not sure what you mean by connect but there is the the translate extension which you can enable from ManageWikiExtensions if that is what you need. Please read User:Void/Infoboxes, and if something is still not working feel free to contact him with anything regarding infoboxes. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:54, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

I am not talking about sub pages I am talking about sub heading which is located at the 'pages issues' place I hope that you have seen the page issues place in Wikipedia. At that section the sub heading of a page is there, like for the page Narendra Modi it is 'Prime Minister of India' so I am asking that how I can add the sub heading or sub header of a page.

Need contributors for my wiki!

Hi, I started a new wiki called Sustainapedia. I was wondering if you could help me with my wiki and help contribute to it. I need volunteers who will willing enough to edit all the time (almost active every ten seconds, just like Wikipedia), and to also make a difference. If you could ask other users to start contributing and continuously, that would be great. Plus, I need other administrators too who can patrol and protect articles from vandalism and spam. Are you willing to help me? If so, start creating your user page and start contributing and patrolling for vandalism. I will give you admin rights once you come to the site. Cheers! Here is the link: DoveWindsor (talk) 11:30, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Request reasserted and immediately stalled

It has been a year since I put forward my name-change request, as the username I wish to poach has continued to be inactive in that year. It is at Stewards' noticeboard#Request to poach another user's name, bis. @開拓者: brought up an issue, independent of my request, though related to both him and me, and poof! my request is again in limbo, Management evidently seeing a reason it could defer a decision. Would you please goose this request so that it is accepted or rejected with a valid rationale? Spıke (talk)03:12 2-Mar-2019

@Spike the Dog: As I am not a steward, I cannot do anything about that, but I will ask the stewards to take a look and decide on what to do. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:48, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! Spıke (talk)00:36 3-Mar-2019

Patrolling oddity

Another question, please! When I turn on the Big Machine and visit Miraheze, I usually try to help by patrolling a few edits on Meta. For most pages, this used to involve a cute little circular animation on the change summary and it was done. Now, I get a separate confirmation page. This makes the process more complicated, as the link to Previous/Next Edit is cleared away.

Did I change one of my Preferences to lose the ability to patrol edits quickly? Did I lose some user rights? Spıke (talk)22:46 3-Mar-2019

@Spike the Dog: Would you mind taking a screenshot of what it shows you? For me it works as it always has. Reception123 (talk) (C) 13:49, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
It is a page whose contents (below the usual title and #p-cactions) are "Mark revision 68970 of User talk:Promisekun as patrolled?" and presents a button labeled OK. Its URL is
The point is, formerly, I was not directed to a different page at all but remained on the new page or on the change summary I was patrolling, except on important pages like the Stewards' Noticeboard. Spıke (talk)23:28 4-Mar-2019

If the wiki is closed, it can be adopted. If not, a request must be made locally and you must be voted, after which the request is made at Stewards' noticeboard. Reception123 (talk) (C) 13:58, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
So, Pradip, the question becomes: Is anyone there at all? If so, I agree that they decide whether you should be an Admin. Spıke (talk)14:13 17-Mar-2019

Twitter card

@El Komodos Drago: suggests on Community noticeboard that there is a MediaWiki extension that modifies wiki pages to include a "Twitter card" instructing Twitter to format a graphic summary of the page when linked to from Twitter. But he seems to visit no more than twice a month. Do you know which extension would do this? Spıke (talk)23:30 22-Mar-2019

@Spike the Dog: I am not currently sure, but I will try to find out. Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:15, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
Thank you and good luck! Spıke (talk)13:53 23-Mar-2019


I think that you need to protect the meta:Requests for permissions page as “allow only logged in users”, as anonymous users may spam the page, and also letting any registered users to vote. Also, the action that you did “not let unregistered users view pages” prevented my sister from trying to blank my userpage

@LegoMaster: You are right, when I removed the autoconfirmed protection, I forgot to change it to logged in users. I am not sure what you mean by not letting unregistered users "view" pages. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:35, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
@Reception 123: I mean by that, when I was not logged in, when I accessed the Community noticeboard, it said "Please log in to view other pages."LegoMaster (talk - contribs - logs - uploads - global contribs) 03:21, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
@LegoMaster: On Meta? That is not possible, I also just checked to make sure. If you try now, does it still happen? Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:06, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
@Reception123: I can finally view it. Thanks. Cheers, LegoMaster (talk - contribs - logs - uploads - global contribs) 11:07, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

FAQ and number of servers

I still don't have (nor need) authorization to edit FAQ, but there is an error in FAQ#How many servers do you have, and where are your servers located?. It seems a third US server was added but the text still says "two of them". Less importantly, I suggest that, in place of "here and here", the section help the reader by explaining what he will find on clicking on each link. Cheers! Spıke (talk)22:10 15-Apr-2019

@Spike: Thanks for the suggestions, they have been addressed! Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:22, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Planning for the survey

@Reception123: There are about 3 months till miraheze's 4th anniversary. Planning for the annual survey has not been started yet. Please list all the questions of the survey in a new section below, or as a user subpage. Thank you.


LegoMaster (talk - contribs - logs - uploads - global contribs) 10:51, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

@LegoMaster: I think it is too early to already plan a survey 3 months ahead of time. The questions will be similar to last years normally, with some changes. Reception123 (talk) (C) 08:04, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
