Testing, testing.

On mh:hypotheticalmeta:Template:Ping/sandbox does the mention work, I changed the Ping target to user pages on Meta. Does the mention still work? Znotch190711 (Contribs - My wiki - CA) 17:27, 12 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wiki creation

I edit conflicted with you on that latest wiki creation, so I think we created the same wiki twice (and now they say disregard it, meh). Amanda Catherine (talk) 16:25, 19 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

About the deleted page

Since you deleted the page, can you restore it since it is a hypothetical idea if Miraheze ever becomes incorporated (I even say that it is not possible, but it will be possible maybe in 2024 or so) znotch190711 (temporary signature) 11:02, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

@Znotch190711:: Could you please indicate to me how you would tag to indicate this is NOT a policy, proposal etc. maybe create a template to indicate this and i'll add it on restoration? ~ RhinosF1 - (chat) 路 CA 路 contribs 路 Rights - on) 11:04, 10 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It will be like this: {{Fmbox|text=NOTE TO EVERY PERSON VIEWING THIS PAGE: This page consists of humourous materials that will never exist. Also, this list may be inaccurate and outdated. This page is also '''not a policy or a proposal'''.}} it might become a template if it was more widely used. -- znotch190711 (temporary signature) 11:09, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

Public test wiki is for admin tools tests.My wiki is for bot test.--Shadi12 (talk) 06:39, 30 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You can also test a bot on publictestwiki, If you get the bot to make sure it has a local account there then I will add the bot right. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat) 路 CA 路 contribs 路 Rights - on) 06:45, 30 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That's not what I said. I said you can test the bot on publictestwiki and I will mark it as a bot. We don't normally allow other test wikis. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat) 路 CA 路 contribs 路 Rights - on) 06:54, 30 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Add a request

Hello we recently talk in Steward Noticeboard[1] and talk page. Can you please add a request for me on Meta:Requests for permissions for Check User. Thanking you Shaunak Chakraborty (talk) 10:50, 2 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Stewards Noticeboard is the correct place to request CheckUser for YOUR wiki. The page you have mentioned is only for CU on THIS wiki. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat) 路 CA 路 contribs 路 Rights - on) 11:43, 2 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]


How do you fix the problem with the Flow extension? The problem is that it doesn't work properly. The place to add a topic doesn't show up. It uses the generic Talk page Wikipedia uses. How do you fix the problem? Eijitheawesome (talk) 04:00, 6 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

P.S. How do you disable anonymous editing?

Hello @Eijitheawesome:, I visited the Wikis you mentioned here and Flow appears to be working on both. The section to start a new topic also appears to be displaying correctly. Per the FAQ, it might've not been working for you at the time because it takes Flow a bit longer than other extensions to start working. As for disabling anonymous editing, go to Special:ManageWiki/permissions, edit the * group, and remove the edit permission. -- Elaeagnifolia (talk) 07:32, 6 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not talking about the wikis I mentioned. I'm talking about my wiki (sorry for not mentioning it earlier). The problem is that it uses the generic talk page from Wikipedia instead of Flow, even though Flow is enabled. I also plan on relaying the info on how to fix the Flow problem to other wikis having the same problem.Eijitheawesome (talk) 07:49, 6 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi, Firstly, Thanks Elaeagnifolia for helping while I was offline. In regards to what you mentioned (and I probably could do with documenting this somewhere), It's likely that you need to go to Special:ManageWiki/namespaces and change the default content model to Flow to make it work for new pages. For existing pages, You need to go to Special:EnableFlow on your wiki and enable flow for them via that.

Wiki Deletion Request

Please delete Philosiverse Wiki (, as I can鈥檛 access ManageWiki anymore (I removed myself from all groups thinking I could move it to a WAMP/LAMP server before finding out that Miraheze is the best free wiki hosting option until I can purchase a domain) and I want to re-create it and get a fresh start.

Done. Paladox (talk) 18:14, 18 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks! Also, thanks for immediately re-creating it as well! This time, I will set up the 鈥渂ackbone鈥 (templates, categories, groups, policies, and guidelines) before adding actual information about the topic (the fictional universe of the books I wrote from an in-universe perspective).

Broken Wiki After Importing pages!

I tried to import some infoboxes from Wikipedia to the Philosiverse Wiki ( but something VERY bad happened, and now every time I try to do anything with pages in the Module or Template namespaces, I get an internal error! Please can you restore the wiki from the most recent backup (one should have been created after you created the wiki for me today)? If you can't, can you please just "reset" (delete and re-create) the wiki again as I don't really have much content on it? Bauerbach (talk) 21:36, 18 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We're looking into it. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)路 acc路 c - (on) 21:53, 18 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Bauerbach: That should have been repaired now聽:) ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)路 acc路 c - (on) 22:05, 18 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It happened again! Can you please just mass-delete all pages under the "Module" and "Template" namespaces?
@Bauerbach: I've set off a script to do so. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)路 acc路 c - (on) 22:59, 18 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK, thanks! Now, how can I add infoboxes without this occurring in the future? 鈥 Preceding unsigned comment added by Bauerbach (talkcontribs)

@Bauerbach: If you send me a copy of the import (rhinosf1[at] or open a ticket on with us then i'll sort it for you tomorrow. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)路 acc路 c - (on) 23:06, 18 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You mean the .xml file? The pages that I was trying to import were from Wikipedia by the way, if that helps at all.Bauerbach (talk) 23:59, 18 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Bauerbach: yes, the xml file. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)路 acc路 c - (on) 05:32, 19 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I just emailed you a copy of the import files. I have four because I was following instructions on the MediaWiki page for importing pages from Wikipedia. Bauerbach (talk) 14:00, 19 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request for advice re dormancy policy


I posted here a few days ago but haven't had a response yet. Is this something you can help with?

Thanks, Anothersignalman (talk) 14:29, 24 September 2019 (UTC) Hi Anothersignalman, The desicion would be the stewards to decide but if you do think they maybe an extended break then I don't see a reason why if asked they'd be unable to apply if you had content on the wiki that you would like to keep and expected to return or it be of use. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)路 acc路 c - (on) 17:12, 24 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Incorrect Statements

Hello. I am not trying to be a pest, but I have happened to notice that you have some incorrect information on your user page. I see you have put that you are the lead developer for QuIRC, however that right now belongs to Sario528. You do not have to do anything right now, but I just thought I should tell you. --EKcontribs 17:30, 26 November 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
