Hi Void

We invite you for discussion about 2016 Community survey/Steward. Please leave your comments.

Requests for adoption/boilerplate

Hi, if you go on Requests for adoption you can see that if you put "yes" or "no" as an option it still says "No answer given", that is what I was trying to fix. Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 07:16, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
Hmm, it looked like it should have worked. I'll try something else when I get the chance. -- Void Whispers 15:56, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Request features on a wiki

Can my wiki be created?

Please? PokestarFan (talk) 22:03, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

Are you a steward?

Are you a steward? Rsterbal (talk) 23:30, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

No? If you are referring to this, I removed it because I felt it added nothing to the discussion, as a summary of all viewpoints should include the statements made by users as they support/oppose. If you feel differently, feel free to restore it, although keeping it updated is up to you and whoever else wants to. -- Void Whispers 23:37, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

Meta sysop

Hi, as you're already helping out a lot here, I'd like to propose you as Meta sysop on Meta:Requests for permissions as your actions would be more appropriate as a Meta sysop than CVT. If you're interested either tell me or make the request yourself :) Reception123 (talk) (contribs) 06:34, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

Congratulations!

Congratulations on your successful steward request, and on being the first non-sysadmin steward, and on managing to acquire the 20 votes necessary! I'm sure that as a steward you will continue doing great work here, and that the extra tools will help you to continue combating vandalism (and taking care of any other requests). Good luck!

Issue with the efn template

Hello. I've asked for help with this on the stewards' noticeboard, and was pointed towards you for help with this. If this is an issue outside of your scope, sorry for bothering you. Also, if you don't mind, could you point me to a sysadmin who could help me with this, if that scenario is the case?

Copied from the noticeboard:

I've been using the efn template on my wiki but I struggle with it. Instead of outputting lowercase letters from the Latin/Roman script, it gives out the type of letter followed by a number (example here). Is this something a steward can help with or will I have to fill a feature/extension request? If its the second, what do I have to request specifically? Waffitti (talk) 16:16, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

Hey there, sorry for the late response. I first started looking into it as soon as you had posted about it, and I figured out that it has something to do with the way that the ref parser tag works. Unfortunately, I haven't had much time recently to learn the specifics on how it is supposed to do what you want it to do. However, I do believe I figured it out. If you import the pages located here it is likely that it will function properly. -- Void Whispers 02:16, 24 August 2017 (UTC)
Hello. Sorry for the pushiness, this had long been an issue with my wiki I wanted to solve but had no idea how to. Importing those pages did fix it, I can't thank you enough for helping me with this. If you do figure out the specifics behind it, I'd love to understand them, but don't feel pressured to learn them if you don't have time. Waffitti (talk) 19:04, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Last Week in the Mirror

Thanks for creating the wiki that I requested! But I find that, to re-create the presentation I had used elsewhere, my wiki needs the DPL and OPTION/CHOOSE extensions. I clicked on the link and got daunting messages that, before I could proceed, hopefully to discover whether these extensions are even available, I had to disclose my real name and email address to a third party. This is not necessarily a deal-breaker, except that it came up in the name of OAuth, which I had read required me to sign up with Google and let random people plant software in my cellphone, and these are deal-breakers. Are you able to just switch on these features at TheMirror? I've elected to deal with you folks; why does it seem that non-routine requests have to go through someone else? Spike the Dog (talk) 18:17, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

A list of extensions we have available are listed here. Since my only guess for DPL is DynamicPageList, and I have no idea what OPTION/CHOOSE would be, might I suggest selecting what you know you need from there? If you cannot find an extension you need on that list, they can be reviewed and added. Please note that in order to look into an extension, we will need to know it's exact name, and preferably have a link to any available documentation. Also, if you were referring to signing up on phabricator (provided that you were at phabricator.miraheze.org), it's not actually a third party - it's hosted by us as well (the ticketed system is easier to manage and keep track of than a page on this wiki). However, if you are unwilling to sign up, I am willing to relay any request you make here through. -- Void Whispers 18:38, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for calming me down! I am now registered in Phabricator. (It did not insist on disclosure of my real name, so the pop-up window should stop saying that Phabricator will need to know it.) (In fact, when I eventually pay you for this access, I am very willing to mail a personal check, and very unwilling to disclose anything to PayPal.)

It appears that what I need is to install RandomSelection and DynamicPageList3 at TheMirror.miraheze.org (PS--and install myself as a bureaucrat), and although Phabricator appears to be marvelously structured, I don't see anything about configuring a wiki. So I am now confused at a higher level.

Here is a separate question. At Uncyclopedia, when uploading photos, one option was to assert "fair use for parody." I see that Miraheze is more diligent about protecting copyrights, and agree that, if you got a DMCA request, you would probably delete a photo rather than waste time debating whether its use was permitted. I have stolen photos with impunity, not to benefit from the photography but to use thumbnails as a springboard for original comedy; is that disapproved here? Spike the Dog (talk) 20:35, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

For future reference, if you click the star at the top right, you should see an option for "Request features", which will take you to this form. I've requested that the extensions be enabled without the need for opening a task though (but in the future, similar requests should be directed there). No current comment on images and copyrights. -- Void Whispers 20:57, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Thank you! Installation/opping worked. Spike the Dog (talk) 21:46, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Categories

One more question from TheMirror.miraheze.org: The new archive page "Donald Trump" calls for itself to be added to the new category "News archive" but this hasn't happened, even overnight. In addition, using Special:Categories, I see artifacts pertaining to a page I brought over from the old website but have since deleted. Is there a background process that has stalled? Spıke (talk)13:00 12-Sep-2017

Yeah, jobqueue stopped running again. -- Void Whispers 19:17, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Spike the Dog

Thanks for the promotion to autopatrolled. I don't need patroller as well, but it is surprising to see the ! indicating an unpatrolled edit, given that I can't do anything about it. 21:06 15-Sep-2017 Please ignore that; I simply hadn't brought over my familiar toolkit. Spıke (talk)03:19 16-Sep-2017

Please add and change MediaWiki language

Hi. There are things that need to be changed for Turkish language. If you help me, I'm happy. Thank you.

Issue with col templates

I've been wanting to use "col" templates in my wiki, but they seem to break entire pages (example here. Is there anything I can add to my wiki to stop this issue or would I have to fill a feature/extension request? Waffitti (talk) 06:26, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

@Waffitti: Try changing Col-end to be <p></p>|}</div></div>. It looks like Col-end has the same content as Col-2. -- Void Whispers 20:16, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for that. Wish I had an answer as to why that happened, but the editor who handled that has no memory of the event. Waffitti (talk) 00:18, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

Vandal arrives

I noticed that "Willy on Wheels" has created a user name here and asked to create a wiki. I permabanned him from Wikia Uncyclopedia for installing himself as a site-wide personal meme and general vandalism. This might not disqualify him here, but at the least, I will go out on a limb and suggest that the wiki he requested will have nothing to do with automobiles. Spıke (talk)19:19 1-Nov-2017

I'm waiting to see what the account does first. I've kept my eye on them since they turned up. -- Void Whispers 20:04, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Ban appeal

Hi,

Please provide a staff opinion on my ban appeal. Thank you. Amanda123 (talk) 00:34, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

Images via CSS

On the rfobasic wiki, why does the Common.css file fail to provide a background image (blue texture) for DIV.sidebar (as specified in {Start sidebar}? Example in this page. The fallback blue pastel background is present but the blue texture fails. Am I specifying the filename correctly in Common.css? Is it not allowed to specify a .GIF? This is a frill, but I'd like to get it right if Miraheze supports it. Spıke (talk)02:35 9-Nov-2017

It looks like it's working properly to me, have you tried bypassing your browser's cache? -- Void Whispers 20:24, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Rats! Yes, I have flushed the cache several times. Have you merely used the feature, or did you look at my page and see the textured background? It is failing for me right now, though the Object Inspector confirms that the page is calling for the texture and the page it is calling for is present at static.miraheze.org. Thanks for investigating. Spıke (talk)20:45 9-Nov-2017

The easiest way to answer is to show you what I see. -- Void Whispers 20:58, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

Cancel red alert! Decided I ought to try this with a modern browser (Fennec on Android) and it's all right there. Sorry for the wasted time! 21:02 9-Nov-2017 Double the apologies, as it works fine even on Firefox 10 if I simply switch on Images. "Penny-wise, pound-foolish." Spıke (talk)03:22 10-Nov-2017

Hey

Nice to see you here. Artix Kreiger (talk) 20:44, 15 November 2017 (UTC) I"ve been browsing wikis recently and I discovered Miraheze so I thought I pop by and say hi. Artix Kreiger (talk) 20:44, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

Ban appeal revert

Hi, please don’t remove support votes from my ban appeal just because you believe that they were made by a troll. Any and all votes count. Amanda123 (talk) 01:18, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

So you tellin me that someone asking you for a panties shot is ok? Sure. Refactoring comments because you disagree with them? Sure. Taking only the parts of comments you agree with? Sure. Careful. -- Void Whispers 01:42, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
I never said that the comments themselves were okay. For the record, they are not. However, the support vote itself still counts as a valid vote, especially when the results are very close like they are here. Additionally, I didn’t refactor comments just because I didn’t like them — I removed a comment that was making a blatantly false statement about me. I have never operated porn spambots or done anything remotely like that, which is what the user was claiming. Amanda123 (talk) 01:53, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
Just to note, as per Special:Diff/37075, a rationale should be provided for a vote. The user did not provide any rationale pertaining to the actual subject that is being discussed, so it would not have much weight anyway. I also disagree with trolls/abusers being able to keep their votes when their only purpose is clearly to disrupt. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:26, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

Hello!

Thanks for the welcome Void. I just have a question for you. Are all wiki's public here? I was hoping to make mine private, with the ability for users to only be able to edit their own pages. Is that possible here?

Thank you in advance. NWNJade

No, a wiki can be prívate if you would like it to be. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 23:10, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
In fact, the wiki you requested is private, so only you (and users you add to the member group) should be able to read any more than the main page. If you want it to be more visible, but with editing restrictions instead of read restrictions, you can make a request on Phabricator. -- Void Whispers 23:38, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

I only want the wiki visible by people I add, and editable only by people I give permissions to. Does that make sense? For example, I want users only to be able to edit their personal pages, and not other people's.

Questions about Void-bot

Dear Void,

I noticed you have a bot. I have 2 questions about the bot:

  • 1) Is it a modified version of wm-bot?
  • 2) Is the source code (including your modifications if applicable) open source?

Thank you for answering my questions in advance

--Sau226 (talk) 13:20, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

It is not a modified version of wm-Bot as wm-Bot is written in a different programming language entirely (c#) whereas void-Bot is written in JavaScript and Python. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 13:35, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

And to answer the second question, no the bot is not open-source at this time. Reception123 (talk) (C) 14:50, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

Extension of rights

Dear Void,

Could you please review my rights and take appropriate action? My rights will expire soon. While I have not used my local account much my bot has made many page imports and attempted to fix many of the issues found in content. Therefore I would request that you either extend the rights for a reasonable amount of time for all accounts, let them expire or process the adoption fully.

I await your response

--Sau226 (talk) 13:15, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

Added permanent 'crat and sysop to your main account. If you need to extend the rights on your bot, you should be able to do so on your own now. Cheers -- Void Whispers 16:49, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

Phabricator

Dear Void,

I requested a feature on Phabricator. Please view it. --Vlad26t (talk) 18:39, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Help with citations

For my wiki, I pretend to implement a quoting system like the one used here, linkable in pages like this example. I've managed https://hirapedia.miraheze.org/wiki/Magazines/'90s to get the text blocks in the wiki], but all text contained within comes off as centrered instead of to the left, and there seems to be lacking parts for the blocks to be cited within articles.

Besides that, there is an issue with the "Reflist" template. On some pages, its been set up to output 2 columns of text. However, when the segment that makes it so is removed, it keeps outputting 2 columns instead of the expected single column, as seen here. What could be causing this? Waffitti (talk) 21:12, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

@Waffitti: Looks like there is an align="left" missing somewhere. I'd suggest putting it in the same space as colspan="3" (in Template:Reference). The reflist seems to be designed by the software in order to have "smart" behavior. For example, on my screen, the page you linked to that should have two columns has three (until I zoom in, and it becomes two). It would seem that not specifying a number of columns defaults the software to deciding the number of columns based off the size of the display. -- Void Whispers 21:26, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Help with converting infobox templates from wikia

Hello, I need help with converting the infobox templates that I used for my wiki on wikia to be compatible with miraheze. For example, how would the template for the infobox on this page look?: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ambush_on_Suurja

I need to be able to have certain rows divided into two columns as shown in the example. Back when my wiki was on wikia, I used this source code for one of the infobox templates, which is going to be very similar to the code used for the example I linked:

<infobox>
 <label>Previous</label>
 <label>Concurrent</label>
 <label>Next</label>
 <title source="name" />
 <image source="image" />
 <group>
   <header>Details</header>
   <label>Beginning</label>
   <label>End</label>
   <label>Setting</label>
   <label>Outcome</label>
 </group>
 <group layout="horizontal" show="incomplete">
   <header>Combatants</header>
   <data source="side1" />
   <data source="side2" />
 </group>
 <group layout="horizontal" show="incomplete">
   <header>Commanders</header>
   <data source="commanders1" />
   <data source="commanders2" />
 </group>
 <group layout="horizontal" show="incomplete">
   <header>Forces</header>
   <data source="forces1" />
   <data source="forces2" />
 </group>
 <label>Civilian casualties</label>
</infobox>

You can also view the exact code for the template used in the linked example here: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Template%3ABattle

Please help me understand what changes I need to make, and then I'll be able to update all the other infobox templates on my wiki as well and finally have it up and running on Miraheze. --^Vitiate^ (talk) 18:24, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Sorry that this is taking a long time to setup, I don't have that much time to work on it right now, but I'll handle it as soon as possible. -- Void Whispers 19:30, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Void, I just want to make sure you didn't forget about this. --^Vitiate^ (talk) 19:03, 19 March 2018 (UTC)
I've begun working on a version. I hope to have it done by the end of the week. -- Void Whispers 23:14, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Hi Void, it's been half a month since I put this request up and I was expected to have my wiki running a long time ago. Please let me know if you are going to have this done soon as I cannot hold out any longer. --^Vitiate^ (talk) 21:47, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
I'm terribly sorry about this, but a few things came up in my personal life that prevented me from getting anything done here. I've currently finished the basic setup, and just need to add CSS styling to the template. Once I test it fully, I'll let you know how to add it to your wiki. -- Void Whispers 23:18, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. --^Vitiate^ (talk) 18:46, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
Void, I looked at the infobox-demo you linked and was able to use that to create working infoboxes. Thank you very much, I no longer need your help. --^Vitiate^ (talk) 00:06, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
Ah, glad to be of service, even if it took so long. If you still need any help with display or whatever let me know. -- Void Whispers 01:40, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Help with Infobox Album

For the implementation of the "album" infobox on my wiki, I decided to emulate Japanese Wikipedia and add their cover/tribute color, as it would be helpful for its needs. Applying it to pages (like this one), it does not recognize the album's type, erroneously branding it as a "Studio album".

Besides that, on some pages (namely this one and that one, the infobox produces a "" string on the top of the page, and I have no idea what is causing it. There is also an aesthetic problem that, while small, causes some inconvenience. On the "chronology" section of the infoboxes, like the one on this page, there is a significant amount of spacing between the titles/years, the section heading and end of the infobox. This, in comparison, is more compact. Are there any ways that those issues can be fixed? Waffitti (talk) 14:29, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

issue

Hello Void. I wanted to reach out and request your support in resolving a table tools fragment error on my Omniversalis wiki. I'm getting tags on my articles whenever I use Template:Infobox officeholder, and I cannot isolate the template causing the problem. It was recommended on the community noticeboard that I look to you for assistance on the matter. I appreciate any support you can provide on the matter. Vivaporius (talk) 20:53, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

@Vivaporius: sorry for the delay in a response, these past few days have been rather busy. I'll take a look as soon as I am able, but the issue already appears to be something non-obvious. -- Void Whispers 19:42, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
Ugh. It's an issue with the parser. Or just that nested infoboxes are poorly designed to begin with. The thing is, the parser is taking html like Text and getting rid of the opening and regurgitating the closing tags. This may be an upstream issue, or it's possible that I can engineer a better method to nest infoboxes. Either case will take longer than I would have hoped. -- Void Whispers 22:39, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the information. I appreciate any help you can provide. I'm a patient dude, and I have other work I need to look to on another wiki in terms of the MediaWiki:Vector.css that I need to iron out, so feel free to take all the time you need. You're doing me a favor so I'm not in a position to rush you or make demands. Feel free to do whatever is necessary on the wiki to resolve the issue! Thanks!

Help

Could you help me install infoboxes on my forum? I am not certain how to or what the code is to make them show up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WaitingCynicism (talkcontribs) 17:25, 21 June 2018‎ (UTC)

Alright, well, so far, it seems that you've added everything you need. In order to set them up, you need to read the documentation here. However, if all of that is over your head, I wouldn't mind helping you setup an infobox or two as long as you tell me what you need. -- Void Whispers 18:41, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

PageNumbers

Hi Void, thanks for your previous suggestion re the issues I've recently had getting the highlightable page numbers to work. I was wondering if you get time would you have another look into it please? They seem to be very hit and miss, most of the time not working and only when logged out. When logged in they don't show at all for some reason. I have just created a new page - British War Aims - about a political statement given in 1918. I have included all the relevant djvu pages from the index using the required wikitext but the numbers don't appear. They should also be on this page Great Britain at War but has the same issue. The linkable page numbers in square parentheses should be there but they don't show up, and if they do they don't always remain. The behaviour is very odd and makes the Proofread Page extension a little redundant if this part doesn't work. Can you shed some light on the problem. Thanks. Borderman (Talk) 01:07, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

Additional: Not working in Chrome but periodically in Safari and Firefox. Also, the highlighted area is out a bit, not highlighting the correct text. Borderman (Talk) 01:14, 8 July 2018 (UTC)
I'll look into it, there appears to be some sort of issue with the script that needs ironing out. I'll see if I can't figure it out. -- Void Whispers 01:17, 8 July 2018 (UTC)
Try adding mediawiki.cookie to the mw.loader.using call at the top of common.js so that it looks like this:

-- Void Whispers 01:27, 8 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Void, I think that's done it so the numbers appear when logged in. However, when logged in there is no indentation so the numbers are behind the paragraphed text. When logged out the indent is too small, should be more like 3em. I need to be able to style them so that they have the correct indentation when logged in and out. The highlighted text still doesn't match properly with the original transcription. Any suggestions? Cheers. Borderman (Talk) 11:04, 8 July 2018 (UTC)
@Borderman: Sorry for the late response, I've been away. Anyway, it looks pretty good from my end now, but let me know if you still need anything. -- Void Whispers 21:48, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
No worries pal. I had a look through some wikisource css and found some code that matched what I needed to get the indent. The only problem is that it indents the navigation bar at the top as well, which I changed to a simple template of my own design so I didn't have to look at the Lua error on the wikisource version (which I find too complicated anyway). If there is a way for the indent to NOT affect the navigation bar that would be great, otherwise it'll do for now. I would, however, like to be able to include "The Great War 1914-1918" in the black bar (in white text) on the Vector skin which I have tweaked slightly to emulate aspects of the Pivot skin. Is there a way to add some text to the #mw-page-base section at all? Borderman (Talk) 23:25, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure if there is an easy way to get the navigation bar to not line up with the text, given that it is included in the same column. I don't think it's possible to add text up there without using js. In MediaWiki:Vector.js, the line
$('#mw-page-base').innerText("The Great War 1914-1918");
would add the text, but it is then in severe need of styling. -- Void Whispers 17:10, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
Ok, I'll leave navigation bar as it is, it looks fine anyway. I think Wikisource have done something to their Template:Header to get theirs to go full width. Regarding the title text for mw-page-base, I have tried adding the text to Mediawiki:Vector.js but it hasn't done anything. I don't mind the styling, I can take care of that with css, it's just getting the text their in the first place. Borderman (Talk) 19:05, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
Oh,right, that would be because I goofed on the code. It should be
$('#mw-page-base').innerText = "The Great War 1914-1918";
Sorry about that. -- Void Whispers 19:08, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
The text editor says: Error: Missing ";" before statement. Saving anyway to see if it works. Borderman (Talk) 19:30, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
It seems that I'm doing a bad job keeping track of what's what today, so I've updated the code myself after doing some testing. -- Void Whispers 19:33, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Void, I see the text now. I also forgot the = sign in my previous save. Will add some styling. Thanks again. Borderman (Talk) 19:41, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

Change purge link from wikisource to my website

Hi Void, where do I look to change the code for the purge icon within the proofread page extension example on this page (the middle of the three icons, top right)? The icon links back to wikisource but I need to purge the local pages instead. Thanks. Borderman (Talk) 20:51, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Update: I have hidden all three icons with css as none of them worked locally. Maybe I could have the purge extension as an alternative? Borderman (Talk) 21:46, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) You can revert changes to images by simply reverting back to a previous version of the image (found in the file history), or just by deleting the image altogether and re-uploading it.

(talk page stalker) Other system administrators have said that this skin was previously installed but was removed due to incompatibility. While I have been unable to personally verify this, and the MediaWiki documentation page says that it is compatible with MediaWIki 1.23+, it is looking like this skin will ultimately be declined for one reason or another (someone also mentioned that the code is under or unmaintained, which again I have not confirmed but if true would be a non-starter for any installation of skins or extensions).

Maia mediation

Hey there, thank you for responding to my issue.

It's unfortunate that you went down the mediation path, because I'm really trying to embrace that the drama has calmed and I'm careful to not have anything brought up again. Many, many members of the community simply wish to ignore the situation and "not involve themselves", but I've requested via our Discord server that anyone who wishes to help out with this, message me and I'll send them the link.

Truly though, I made the Maia Song Contest and therefore, surely they shouldn't be able to create a copy? I think it is very sad that this needs to even be debated, as the creators of the clone wiki (maiasc.miraheze.org) were removed from the original due to their toxic behaviour and attempts to manipulate situations such as these. I have some screenshots of nasty Discord messages that made digs at me over past mental health issues also, if this helps at all.

I wasn't 100% sure how I should best voice my concerns, so I posted it under the 'Discussion' part and advised others to do the same. The consensus is though, the community is in near-unanimity that the original wiki is the only legitimate home of the Maia Song Contest, and they should not be allowed to use the name and parade the contest as their own. If they do it outside Miraheze, I would have to go down another route to have the plagiarism removed, but otherwise, I hope you are able to help me with this. All the work I've put in over the years (just see my contributions), and you'll see why I'm so passionate about why my work should not be duplicated in this way.

Sorry for giving you a big paragraph to read, but I hope it brings some clarification on the subject. I truly hope the clone wiki can be deleted as soon as possible, as they are already messaging members of the community claiming it is "the real wiki" and attempting to confuse them. Surely this is against rules of some kind?

Kind Regards, -AuroraBorealis (talk) 21:28, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for getting back to us on the situation. We decided to go this route because we were essentially operating in the dark. We have no idea what was happening behind the scenes, and decided that the best way to resolve it was to force a public discussion where we could better get an understanding of what was going on. Going into the discussion, we were under the impression that there was perhaps an even divide, or just a disconnect somewhere. If there's anything that you want to tell us that should not be made publicly visible, please email it to stewards miraheze.org so we can investigate. -- Void Whispers 21:50, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, and I will email you also tomorrow. Given that it appeared an even divide, when this is not the case, is it possible that a different route be taken?

Uncyclopedia 2

SO what is going on with this 'Uncyclopedia 2' project from @Psl631:? I have blocked him from Uncyclopedia (wikia hosted) for a week for ignoring my request not to spam another website - Uncyclopedia 2. --Romartus (talk) 22:21, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

To update my own post. I see this article (as edited here - https://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Florence_Nightingale?action=history) appears on Uncyclopedia 2 (here https://uncyclopedia2.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=Florence_Nightingale&action=history) with only one previous edit - from a bot. So all the previous article's history and contributors have been removed. I presume therefore this is going to happen to ALL articles imported - either from the Uncyclopedia hosted at Wikia or Uncyclopedia hosted independently? You know that's not on. --Romartus (talk) 13:17, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
This is new information to me. Until that user had imported those hundreds of pages, the wiki appeared to be complying with copyright requirements, but now, due to the user's imports, it is not. I was also under the impression that Psl631 did not want to copy the contents of existing Uncyclopedias outside of setting up the basic framework (policies, templates, etc) needed to get the wiki working. I'll be keeping my eye on this as it develops. -- Void Whispers 13:34, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
I did not copy from the wikia uncyclopedia, I created pages from own work with some content copied from en.uncyclopedia, the Uncyclopedia.co wiki. --Psl631 (Let's Chat!) 13:37, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
I am aware of that, but @Kink lewis: imported over 3000 pages from the Uncyclopedia on wikia. -- Void Whispers 13:46, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
In that case, I request those 3,000 pages are removed if sourced from Wikia hosted Uncyclopedia. How it should have been was for writers wanting to submit articles to Uncyclopedia 2 but only if the article was their sole effort or they had the agreement of ALL the other editors at Uncyclopedia (wikia). For the purposes of illustration, this was the arrangement made between Uncyclopedia (wikia) and Uncyclopedia.co back in 2013. --Romartus (talk) 14:04, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

Questions about names and deleted wikis

Hello! I have 2 questions for you. Question1 Is it admissible to create a wiki with the name of a deleted wiki (I was admin)? Question2 I know the conditions and rules of deletion for a wiki, but can some data be retrieved eventually? Is there any chances (eventually) ? Question3 Will it be a premium feature one day, where you pay, and can keep a small, inactive wiki for a longer period?

Thank you! --PERCE-NEIGE (talk) 14:04, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

Do you know when your wiki was deleted? If it was recent, there is a better chance of recovery. There is no reason you can't create a new wiki under the name of a deleted wiki (that's part of the reason we delete inactive wikis after all). It is currently possible to exempt wikis from the Dormancy Policy, provided they fulfill certain criteria. -- Void Whispers 16:17, 15 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for the quick reply. So, I will recreate it, but I doubt it qualifies for dormancy exemption, except if there's a way to have a premium.

Is it possible to have an exemption if I pay? I know your site is meant to be free, but I love your service, and my wiki may be inactive for a while, depending on my workload or burden of family.

To be able to recreate my wiki easily if something happens, is there a way to automatically backup it on a cloud service and on a personal hosted site (but that is not a wiki). I'm very novice, but I could try to learn if needed. I will ask you to recreate Cogitopédie, with a private part, and a public part (that I hope will be useful). Is it possible? — Preceding unsigned comment added by PERCE-NEIGE (talkcontribs) and my last question: do you know how someone can use the extension called whitelist? Maybe there's better alternative for an hybrid private-public wiki?

@PERCE-NEIGE: Hello, you do not need to pay for an exemption. If you have a good reason (such as it can be used to be read or that you have to leave but you will return) it is perfectly fine for you to request an exemption. And no, we do not have that extension but it should be possible to do something from Special:ManageWikiPermissions. Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:21, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank you!

The problem is that I don't have any "good" reasons, except my private & professional life, so, I think the best thing for me would be to find a way to backup the site. Do you know how I could backup automatically to a private place from my hosting provider?

So, could you recreate the wiki please for me, I will try to use the special page, but I don't know if I can make 2 categories of pages. One which I own all the rights, and one readable but not editable, by anyone on the Internet. I'd like to categorize pages like this.

Other question: What are the mediawiki extensions that are activable on a Miraheze wiki? EDIT: I see now the list of extensions that can be activated from my wiki. This question is closed. I' still seaching answers to the way to have private and public pages, and to be able to do automatic backups.

Wikirunning request

Hi Void! I recently submitted two requests for new Wikis, namely Wikirunning and Wikirunner. Wikirunner was submitted by mistake; I would like for just Wikirunning to be created. I intend to create a high-quality Wiki encylopedia about runners, running events, coaches, etc. with expanded notability guidelines. Once it starts getting big enough, I would prefer it to have its own domain name at wikirunning.org. Thanks. Runnerpedia (talk) 15:41, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

It's been handled! Cheers -- Void Whispers 17:39, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! I'd like to learn more about how to import templates into my new wiki. As an initial test, I've imported XML dumps of 11 articles from the English Wikipedia (example: https://wikirunning.miraheze.org/wiki/On%C3%A8sphore_Nkunzimana ). So far so good, but many template boxes such as "Infobox person" didn't show up, even though I made sure to export the templates. TME has some good articles with no or few broken templates, and I wonder how they did it. Where should I start? Runnerpedia (talk) 18:43, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
Additionally, I'd like to:
  1. Rename my Wikirunning wiki to WikiKimbia (Kimbia means "running" in Swahili) in order to focus just on runners from the African continent, since Wikirunning is potentially too broad for a relatively new project like Miraheze (we'd have to import up to tens of thousands of articles from Wikipedia to comprehensively cover running on my new wiki). Alternatively, we can just delete Wikirunning and start up WikiKimbia from scratch
  2. Import all of the articles from English Wikipedia's Category:Kenyan long-distance runners if possible, to give this Wiki a good start and attract editors from the competitive running community, which I'm well connected with. Let me know if this is OK with you. I'll be happy to let the System Admins do this so that I don't screw things up, since I'm new to Miraheze. Runnerpedia (talk) 18:52, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
Hey, sorry for taking so long to respond, I've been busy with other things. If you really want Wiki Running deleted, please confirm here, so I can make sure that gets done. For number two, it would be the same as importing the templates, and there shouldn't be any reason we need to handle it. -- Void Whispers 18:36, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
Not a problem. I think I'll keep Wikirunning on Miraheze for now, but I won't add many more articles to be respectful of your servers and disk space. What's the maximum limit on the number of articles that users can import from Wikipedia by the way? Runnerpedia (talk) 22:15, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

Thank you Void for your answer to my question on the Community Noticeb. regarding steps for my Wiki not being editable but readable by anyone. I followed your instructions but still other people than myself can edit any page. It seems there is just the option between a private Wiki (editorial + reading restrictions) and a public one (no editorial or reading restrictions). Is that the case? Or is a mixture possible, I would like the setting of: editorial restriction + no restriciton as to readability for anyone. Appreciate your assistance.

CVT

I have an account on Wikipedia, Owen912, and it is indefinitely blocked from editing it. Should I request CVT or it means that I am not able to patrol vandalism and block vandals. LegoMaster (talk - contribs - logs - uploads - global contribs) 12:01, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

It's not a blocker in terms of policy, but may impact how the community evaluates you. -- Void Whispers 02:24, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

I got a question about vandals with VPN...

If vandals have VPN, how would you or other stewards stop them? Mar9122 (talk) 02:53, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

@Mar9122: They would be stopped like any other users, by a block. While there is a No open proxies policy users can use VPNs. Reception123 (talk) (C) 11:44, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

I found a security hole

The widget extension allows all users to edit it. It is a dangerous exploit and should be fixed.

Please note that security issues should not be discussed publicly for obvious reasons. Could you please be more specific and report to us following the instructions on the Security page? Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:42, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
This isn’t technical a security exploit, it is the responsibility of each wiki to manage settings like these. As an organisation, we have mitigated any serious affects as far as we are reasonably expected to be able to. John (talk) 07:36, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Webs & Tiaras Wiki

When is the Webs & Tiaras Wiki finished? I have been waiting for it. Whatsfordinner77 (talk) 23:50, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, I've been rather busy, it has been created now! -- Void Whispers 14:26, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Help. Us.

Vicious is absolutely going rogue on the users who are being affiliated towards me! Thanks to him blocking Mar9122 and Portrock1355, along with Angrybirdsfanonmiraheze, Mar9122 fucking banned me from Atrocious YouTubers Wiki! [Doubt me all you want, but here’s the proof! https://crappygames.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:BlockList] [Here’s fucking more! https://awesomegames.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:BlockList] [And here’s the one that involved me getting blocked https://atrociousyoutubers.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:BlockList] You know what? Never mind, just please unblock me from Crappy Games Wiki, Awesome Games Wiki, and Rotten Websites Wiki, so I can apologize to Vicious! Either one is fine, I don’t care! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Se (talkcontribs)

Um, there’s an admin who is mildly too stubborn

Sigh, Vicious187 kinda, lips smacking, gave me a indefinite ban on Crappy Games Wiki and Awesome Games Wiki. All I just simply did was be polite on his discussion boards about the incident at Rotten Websites Wiki where I made an article on Rotten Websites Wiki, but banning someone permanently just because of some discussion is just inexcusable. --Se (talk) 19:11, 8 July 2019 (UTC)Se

Can I get a link to some of these discussions? It would help me looking into what happened. -- Void Whispers 21:01, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Alright, I’ll try. It’s just Vicious deleted my comment on his discussion board at Crappy Games Wiki. [1] Oh wait, now I can’t prove it since Vicious already deleted my discussions. I just don’t understand since my link isn’t working. I’m just not exactly an expert. Sigh, the block log shows how stubborn he is. Never mind, Mar9122 just acted like a huge jerk at me at Atrocious YouTubers Wiki. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Se (talkcontribs)

Just to point out, the link doesn't work because the W in wiki is capitalized and it should be all lowercase for it to work. Reception123 (talk) (C) 18:19, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Okay,you can create a wiki in that subdomain.

How do I rename my username?

There is no rename button, and other users have done it. --Thegbcrewyt (talk) 21:37, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Make a request at Special:GlobalRenameRequest. -- Void Whispers 21:48, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Just noticed your account on the wiki I work on.

Hello, was surprised to see your message on my private wiki :-) guessing that the message may be automated and you might not even have access to that page? Best, MarkDilley

Ah, you're probably referring to my user page. Yeah, that's displayed on all wikis where I have an account. However, as a Steward, I do have access. I just don't use it to go about reading things, and I honestly have no idea what wiki you're talking about. :P Cheers -- Void Whispers 03:23, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Global block

Can you block any socks of Bogsuja? They started insulting me without any reason.--MCpillager (talk) 11:39, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Could you list the suspected socks for us? Based on behavioral evidence, it's obvious that some of the accounts are socks created for vandalism-only, but your list can help us find all of them.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 14:09, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Your role as steward

Thanks for registration on our new wiki wiki.mxlinuxusers.de and your offer to assist us. Will you concentrate only on administration rights, disputes etc. or also by getting te most out of our wiki? I wish to get better translations to the german language could I contribute? --Peter Littmann (talk) 13:59, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

You can contribute to translations if you wish. If you are not autoconfirmed here on meta, yet, you can still ask for the translator permission. In principle, stewards will not take control over any communities as long as the local users can control them by themselves, but are willing to help you upon request. You can make a request at Stewards' noticeboard when necessary, or may also use our community noticeboard if you have any questions.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 14:06, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

Input box

Hi Void

Could you do us a great favor, see if you can fix the input box (creating new article box)on the main page in beidipedia.miraheze.org. Thanks Link00 (talk) 19:57, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Hmm, not too sure what to do. I'd suggest looking into Extension:Inputbox, which can be enabled using ManageWikiExtensions. -- Void Whispers 20:06, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Help!

My wiki blacklist, User:Fungster/wiki blacklist, has the wiki https://horridreceptionwikis.miraheze.org and that wiki needs to be speedily deleted and unban Angrybirdsfanonmiraheze and Fungster, since you are a steward and has bureaucrat and admin access to that site. From the wiki's Main Page, we already know that it is for harassment and it seems to be violating our Terms of Use and Content Policy. Thank you for your understanding.

New wiki

Hello! I'm new here and I want to create a wiki. Can you tell me the link to create wikis? Haizaki (talk) 17:12, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Welcome! You can request a wiki here. Let me know if you need anything else! -- Void Whispers 17:20, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Please delete this biased and exaggerated page about me.

There is a mirahzee called horrid reception wiki which had a page about me with no sources and unbiased opinions, as why I suck, and they aren’t true, and I never gave them permission to make the page. I tried to negotiate with the admins but they refused to listen to me. Here is the link to the wiki: https://horridreceptionwikis.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page

The link to the page: https://horridreceptionwikis.miraheze.org/wiki/Like_a_boss999

The wiki is already being reviewed by staff, so I'll make sure they review this as well. -- Void Whispers 17:23, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
This is going nowhere.
The following is a closed debate. Please do not modify it.
As an admin of HRWW, he's clearly lying as he once vandalized the page as "negotiation" and that's hypocritical of him. Here's proof for this wrongdoing: https://horridreceptionwikis.miraheze.org/w/index.php?title=Like_a_boss999&action=history --Mar9122 (talk) 12:44, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
Mar, I can show you your history of vandalism, flamewars, errors, and hypocrisy if you would like. Another thing is that you do not have any source to back up the “facts” that are listed, so in other words, it’s either made up or just straighten up plagiarism, and miraheze would allow a user to delete a page that he/she doesn’t like on a certain miraheze if he/she doesn’t like and approve of it. And what you’re saying is that I have 2 errors, so therefore, you cannot make a page about a user with 2 errors. Plus, if the horrid reception wiki miraheze is being reviewed, then you know that there is something wrong with it.
B.S. Stop being a victim of yourself and accept those criticism. If you think the page is bias and has no proof, I'll put those proofs. It's you that have too much salt, not me. Purely B.S. No one will agree with you. --Mar9122 (talk) 17:22, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
B.S. you would have whined, complained and played victim if there was a page about you, and you wouldn’t even handle the criticism or allow anyone to make a page about you because “you can’t make a page about admins.” That is just pure B.S. and shows that you cannot handle any criticism. And I do not make a page about anyone because I am no idiotic coward who stays in the past, pissing off people behind their backs and altering facts about them just to make them look bad. All I want is peace, yet you and your friends keep harassing me, and I hate it. I do not accept any fake and biased criticism; the only criticism that I accept is me vandalising several times and causing drama several times. Another thing is that links to down sites do not serve as evidence as it shows nothing. And if you think that no one agrees with me, then why do I have people who agree with me? Why do you assume stuff without any proof of any sort? Because you are a sheep and rely on fake information. The page will be taken down, as Miraheze will accept requests like this because you are making a page about someone and that person doesn’t approve of it. Now I suggest that you delete the page and leave me alone, Mar, or Miraheze will keep an eye on you.
I did have criticism for myself. PROOF. You clearly did not read the page, twice, and you dare to insult me by calling me a sheep? You are getting on my nerves, boss. You are wasting my time. And you are really a horrible person. Screw you for calling me a sheep and the page of yourself stays. I put all the stupid proofs so Miraheze stewards won't believe you. Stop making lies, get a life, and stop the drama. It's your fault. You falsely accused OldDirtyFoamer for closing down Roblox Wiki and he did not. Not only you're lying but also being a bigot youself. This is my last time replying this stupid petty message.
End of the story Mar9122 (talk) 00:28, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Angrybirdsfan2005: Do you think you have the fucking right to attack Mar?! He's a good friend of mine. Plus LikeABoss999, you need to stop this, so either stop or I'll report you!

Everyone please refrain from making further comments, this will be handled regardless as to what happens here. Besides, this is going nowhere. -- Void Whispers 02:10, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Ok, this is going out of control

So MCpillager, Like a boss999, and Fungster are trying to take down horridreceptionwikis.miraheze.org even though we already blocked PeetahBaxter69 and FrozenPizza. Please do not delte horridreceptionwikis.miraheze.org, okay?

This is just honestly going nowhere, even my requests are just going nowhere. I’m not gonna even bother risking to get my account closed just because of a fight. I wouldn’t recommend requesting Void unless if you want to get your account closed.

Yeah, your still bent on getting hrww closed. Boss, you are truly a horrible person. Youve vandalized, harassed others, threatened raids, and abused admin powers. We will never forgive you. You should stop making alts like a random fat pug. You need to grow up. Were keeping the page on you, no matter what, because you will never change.

Yet I was the one who had enough of the harassment, and false lies. I wanted peace, but you didn’t. I made peace with destroyer, thatdude, and Darkbitlike. I do want HRWW closed but I do not want to risk my account getting closed. You decided to alter the facts to support yourself, which prompted me to end the wiki. Even mar has though of shutting down HRWW and I don’t persuade him to. I have grown up, but will you? And btw, a random fat pug is my friend’s account and here is proof of it: https://a-random-fat-pug.fandom.com/wiki/Message_Wall:Darkbitlike?useskin=oasis

And guess what? They made peace with you, that dosent mean they sided with you. You need to grow up, and stop acting like a know it all. Because guess what idiot? Youve harssed underage users, vandalized stuff becuase of personal reasons, and theow a hissyfit over us criticizing you. Accept that you are not perfect, suck it up. You Truly Are A Horrible Person.

(To everyone) The wiki is now private, and I think it's a local issue for those who have the member/admin permissions. If you don't have such permissions, this issue is no longer related to you - just leave it to the locals and (if necessary) Stewards. Please refrain from having further off-topic discussion, or you might get a short-term block on meta. Thanks.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 02:02, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
Concur. The mutual accusations and name-calling do not belong on Meta. Meta is about the health of the entire wiki farm and its officers do not know who's right in this feud and shouldn't be taking the time to find out. My only role is to patrol your edits as non-vandalism, and even that is a waste of time. Spıke (talk)02:40 17-Jun-2019

WikiSports

If so, can I have a hand with assistant with helping the wiki to grow and to also protect from any spam or vandalism? Thank you! Huntress (Talk to me!) 17:42, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
