Status:  Done
  • Requesting: dormancy policy exemption
  • Reason(s): Sagan 4 as a whole requires permission to edit and is prone to dead periods sometimes exceeding 6 months, and the content is read + has historic value in the spec evo community. Sagan4alpha and sagan4beta were exempted on Miraheze, the other two were supposed to be but weren't for some reason (but we're still requesting them now). Disgustedorite (talk) 02:07, 20 June 2023 (UTC)
I have to say that 4 separate wikis may be a little much for different versions of a game; have you considered merging them into one wiki and separating each version into different namespaces, such as "Alpha", "Beta", etc.? Tali64³ (talk) 17:04, 24 June 2023 (UTC)
This is Yes Done by Agent, I believe --NotAracham (talk) 01:15, 26 July 2023 (UTC)

CrazySpruiker@avidwikitide

I'm trying to join the Audiovisual Identity Database after it moved from Miraheze, but even after registering there I'm still unable to access most pages due to a "permission error". CrazySpruiker2001 (talk) 07:54, 21 June 2023 (UTC)

AVID is currently in transition, no new accounts will be accepted there until further notice and the hosting arrangements have made progress. Apologies for the inconvenience. If you just want to read, pages on avid.wiki should be public and not give a permissions error. --Raidarr (talk) 12:40, 21 June 2023 (UTC)

Running for Steward

I am running for Global Steward of WikiTide. I am running for WikiTide Steward because I want to help run and manage WikiTide, which is just starting out and will probably have more spam, etc. I look forward to working with you.--Magic.Ice (talk) 08:42, 20 June 2023 (UTC)

This is not the venue to apply. The venue to apply is not yet created and will not be until the team has more of its bearings. Frankly, even when it is, a random account saying they wish to apply will have nil odds for a successful request given steward on any site of merit is a role of significant established trust, competence and community presence. --Raidarr (talk) 08:50, 20 June 2023 (UTC)
了解です。 Magic.Ice (talk) 14:23, 20 June 2023 (UTC)

TVpedia

Status:  Done
  • Requesting: deletion
  • Reason(s): I changed my mind about moving TVpedia to this wiki farm. Instead, it will remain in its original home, Miraheze. ShawnTehLogoBoi (talk)
Yes Done. Agent Isai (talk) 06:37, 25 July 2023 (UTC)

Gundam Wiki

Status:  Done
  • Requesting: Enable Semantic MediaWiki
  • Reason(s): We are migrating from Fandom and we heavily rely on SMW there, it has been the backbone of the entire encyclopedia for well over a decade and almost all articles cannot be displayed properly without it. Our migration process is severely impeded until we have this vital extension. Gundam Researchers (talk) 19:43, 6 July 2023 (UTC)
Yes Done. Apologies for the delay. Agent Isai (talk) 06:37, 25 July 2023 (UTC)
Status:  Cannot be undertaken
  • Requesting: Enable Semantic Scribunto
  • Reason(s): This extension allows us to run SMW queries within Lua; fetching data as Lua tables greatly sped up the development of our infrastructure on our current host. Without it, we would have to revert to older, clunkier templates. Gundam Researchers (talk) 19:43, 6 July 2023 (UTC)
Please request this on Phorge as this extension is not installed on WikiTide. Agent Isai (talk) 07:06, 25 July 2023 (UTC)

Request for disabling interwiki links on sdiywiki

Status:  Not done
  • Requesting: Local interwiki prefix forwards to be set to No for github, mediawikiwiki, miraheze, mw, w, wp and wikipedia.
  • Reason(s): Interwiki links are deceptive, users are lead to believe they're reading the wiki but are actually taken offsite. Rob Kam (talk) 15:55, 21 July 2023 (UTC)
You can manually override these prefixes yourself at Special:Interwiki on your wiki. Agent Isai (talk) 07:09, 25 July 2023 (UTC)

lhmnwikitide

Status:  Done
  • Requesting: Enable Semantic MediaWiki
  • Reason(s): I found out that SMW will help our project in long-terms, so I wants it to be enabled on our wiki. I accept the risk that this is exprerimental. Pisces (talk) 01:54, 26 July 2023 (UTC)
Yes Done Agent Isai (talk) 23:02, 26 July 2023 (UTC)

Account lock request

Can lock my account? I now barely active on WikiTide and I will no longer active there. Also because of reliability issues on Miraheze-based wiki farms due to frequent backend fetch errors. HarmonZach (talk) 14:47, 5 August 2023 (UTC)

I'm a bit confused by this request, it seems like you've conflated two different wikihosts. WikiTide is not Miraheze, and we cannot lock any accounts on the Miraheze platform. If your request was not in error and you wish to lock your WikiTide account, please confirm and I will lock your account as requested...
--NotAracham (talk) 00:24, 6 August 2023 (UTC)
Ok, I will be no longer active on WikiTide and I will quit WikiTide. Please lock my account. HarmonZach (talk) 08:16, 6 August 2023 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying, this has now been Yes Done --NotAracham (talk) 14:53, 6 August 2023 (UTC)

Request for custom domain

I'll just copy the message from discord: I couldn't make a Phorge account to request a domain change so I hoped to try luck here, the wiki is marathon.wikitide.com, the domain is newcascadia.net and it's pointing to ns1.wikiforge.net and ns2.wikiforge.net already.

thank you for your time

Biodude (talk) 21:26, 11 August 2023 (UTC)

This has been Yes Done, as relayed on Discord. Agent Isai (talk) 19:54, 17 August 2023 (UTC)

Request: Custom domain for distro.wikitide.com

copied from discord:

Wiki URL: distro.wikitide.com

Your custom domain: distrowiki.net

Do you want Let's Encrypt: Yes

I couldn't make a Phorge account to request a domain change so I hope the relevant people will respond here. I do have my WikiForge account ready just in case the Phorge bug was fixed. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 08:03, 12 August 2023 (UTC)

This has been Yes Done, as relayed on Discord. Agent Isai (talk) 19:54, 17 August 2023 (UTC)

farthest frontier

Status:  Done
  • Requesting: Enable Semantic MediaWiki
  • Discussion: We use a custom domain, wiki is factually located at https://farthestfrontier.wiki
  • Reason(s): Requesting enabling of Semantic MediaWiki, our topic (game) has several resource tables that would be better to source from a single location. (I also can't do this myself as I don't have all the access to 1-click solve it. :) ) NotAracham (talk) 20:51, 18 August 2023 (UTC)
Yes Done by Agent Isai --NotAracham (talk) 14:51, 22 August 2023 (UTC)

Astronomy Wiki

  • Requesting: Enable Extension:AbuseFilter to send hit notifications to Special:RecentChanges also for private filters.

Unreal_Neo Studios Encyclopedia

Status:  Done
  • Requesting: Change "Dormancy Policy exemption" to Enable
  • Reason(s): This wiki has reached a certain size, and it needs to keep the data of the articles in it for a long time and for others to browse. And the administrator, due to his own affairs, could not update and maintain the Wiki in time. Rosalina129 (talk) 18:27, 28 September 2023 (UTC)
Granted. Wiki has substantial amounts of content/edits and is seasonally edited based on content.

  • Requesting: Enable WikimediaIncubator

Cities Skylines Mod Guides

Status:  In progress
  • Requesting: Enable Extension:External_Data and Change LocalSettings.php with $wgExternalDataSources['api.steampowered.com/*']['replacements']=['STEAM_API_KEY'=>'<I dont know yet how to transfer that api key safely over to you>'];
  • Reason(s): we want to basically automate a few parts like fetching author, id and co. Those are really the most bothersome parts as they take a lot of time and result in only one or two links.

Rushpedia

Status:  Done
  • Requesting: Enable Semantic MediaWiki
  • Reason(s): We would like to use Semantic MediaWiki to make card data on the wiki more organized and machine-readable A10theHero (talk) 20:09, 8 October 2023 (UTC)
This is now Yes Done, thanks for bearing w/ us. :) --NotAracham (talk) 02:37, 11 October 2023 (UTC)

Can't login at Maniphest

If I try to loging at Maniphest it does the OAuth thing and then shows the message "Wait for Approval - Your account has been created, but needs to be approved by an administrator. You'll receive an email once your account is approved." I already had an account and now I've been "waiting patiently" for weeks. --Rob Kam (talk) 19:24, 11 October 2023 (UTC)

Are you trying to file a ticket on Phorge? The WikiTide instance is at https://issue-tracker.wikitide.org. The support.wikiforge.net instance is managed by WikiForge staff. Agent Isai (talk) 19:26, 11 October 2023 (UTC)
I already have an account at Phorge with a few tickets, but when try to login via OAuth to there, it asks me to create an account and if I do it goes to the above error message. If I try to reset the account it gives "There is no account associated with that email address." Rob Kam (talk) 20:26, 11 October 2023 (UTC)
The original phorge instance was archived. support.wikiforge.net is now just for WikiForfe related issues. WikiTide related issues and tickets were migrated to issue-tracker.wikitide.org. Accounts are completely separate. You have to re-create your account. On support.wikiforge.net admin approval is required. On issue-tracker.wikitide.org it isn’t required. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 20:44, 11 October 2023 (UTC)
Thanks. How did I miss Phorge being closed down? I don't use WikiForge as far as I can tell. I registered at issue-tracker.wikitide.org and it asks me to click a link in an email. This takes me to a Cloudflare error message "Email Protection - You are unable to access this email address wikitide.org". Rob Kam (talk) 21:18, 11 October 2023 (UTC)
I can get on issue-tracker.wikitide.org now. Rob Kam (talk) 21:28, 11 October 2023 (UTC)

copyright infringement & CC License Violation @chizunetserieswiki

This wiki was created by a user who disagrees with the operating policy of chizunetwiki which uses Miraheze. Most pages are copied from chizunetwiki (miraheze). Just have a problem with the license. According to Creative Commons description page, redistribution must be under the same or a compatible license. The license of miraheze's chizunetwiki is CC-BY-SA 4.0 and the license of chizunetserieswiki is "All Rights Reserved". They are not compatible and should not be copied. Also, some pages are importing only the latest version, and are not correctly inheriting the history.

The trouble is that there are also several pages originally created on this wiki.... (e.g.: wt:chizunetseries:メインページ, wt:chizunetseries:飛騨の民(ローカルページ))

Intervention is required due to infringement of copyright infringement. Thanks,--1108-Kiju (talk) 06:15, 17 August 2023 (UTC)

It seems that 飛騨の民 are making unnecessary reports here, so let me explain.I was testing to change the license, and for some reason the setting to disable the license was not reflected, so I set it to a different license instead. It's my responsibility to overlook the incompatibility, but first of all, the copyright page says about the license. By the way, I have already reverted. 金町の民 (talk) 08:51, 17 August 2023 (UTC)
Hi 1108-Kiju, thanks for the report. Looking into this, the license has been corrected to CC-BY-SA 4.0 so the wiki is no longer violating the licensing. As for attribution, from what I know, as long as the history has a link to the original site which hosted the edits, even if it's just the latest imported revision with a link to the wiki (e.g. the latest imported revision might be "mh:chizunetseries>Username" and links to the Miraheze wiki). If this isn't the case though, please link a page which doesn't do that and then we'll review this other again. Agent Isai (talk) 19:53, 17 August 2023 (UTC)
Thanks for the check. I will ask the local administrator to amend the form to the appropriate form, if necessary. --1108-Kiju (talk) 04:39, 18 August 2023 (UTC)

I'd like to have the (Temporary) Two Worlds Wiki import deleted.

I'd like to request the deletion of "Two Worlds Wiki". In my import request, I noted that I only needed it hosted temporarily, while I set the indie version back up. I've successfully exported and imported my page histories, and I'm currently uploading the media from my backup, so I no longer need the WikITide version. Thank you for the help, it means a great deal to me.

Hi there. This wiki appears to have been deleted from the database, and as such it appears that it's no longer able to be recovered. Our sincere apologies. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 00:26, 17 December 2023 (UTC)
Hi there, a steward weighing in -- it's possible a backup may exist, but we'll need other members of the team to look into the matter. I'll flag this for review w/ the appropriate folks. --NotAracham (talk) 16:54, 18 December 2023 (UTC)
