Global Rename

Sorry, I forgot writting URL of my wiki; the URL is --Kalsava(カルサヴァ) (talk) 06:13, 3 June 2015 (BST)

This is the right place to request global renames. For features on your wiki, please see the feature request page and me or another user will help you ASAP. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 12:38, 3 June 2015 (BST)
Sorry, I'll post request on my wiki in the feature request page. but I'd like to be renamed as above globally; would you rename me globally?--Kalsava(カルサヴァ) (talk) 19:08, 3 June 2015 (BST)
No need to be sorry. Unfortunately, I can't rename you because that requires a Steward. I am not a Steward but I just saw your message here. I'd love to help you with your feature request asap tho. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 20:48, 3 June 2015 (BST)

Problem: no permissions on new wiki

Referring to this support ticket suggesting staff intervention, it seems that permissions are wrong on my recently created wiki "". Please correct them. Thanks in advance! (talk) 14:44, 5 June 2015 (BST)

Could someone please check this? Thanks! (talk) 20:57, 14 June 2015 (BST) after becoming a sysadmin I manually granted you founder rights on June 16th. Are you still having this issue? If any other users experience issues let me know as it sounds like no pages are whitelisted on your private wiki. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 23:11, 25 June 2015 (BST)

Thank you. I am not very good at coding so probably someone else could do this. Wouldn't this edit Orain meta as well? --Reception123 (talk) 20:11, 8 June 2015 (BST)
This would not affect meta if done right because you can enable the settings only on test wiki. I'll get around to it today or tomorrow. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 21:26, 8 June 2015 (BST)

Request for Wiki Creator

As addshore has told me to post on "Orain Meta", after I sent him an email I will. I would like to be Wiki Creator because I do not think there are enough. As NDKilla has been chosen administrator and sysadmin she will no longer have time to do all the Wiki Creating. I have read the guide and I know how the process to create wiki's works. --Reception123 (talk) 18:16, 18 June 2015 (BST)

For the record I plan on still handling wiki creation as a sysadmin but I am currently out of the country. I have no objections to Reception123 becoming a wiki creator but would like someone else to guide as I will be busy. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 19:32, 18 June 2015 (BST)
Yes, but you will of course have bigger responsibilities. --Reception123 (talk) 19:33, 18 June 2015 (BST)
What is the current state with creating CNAMEs? Did anyone manage to fix the auto creation? ·addshore· talk to me! 22:26, 18 June 2015 (BST)

Rights granted. Please do not create wikis yet until we (either addshore, NDKilla or me) said you can - there are some issues that need to be fixed first. Southparkfan (talk) 18:23, 19 June 2015 (BST)

Problem with thumbnail,_1970_and_2014.png The file does not show at all. The file on the pc is correct, size is 284kB. Fiala1 (talk) 19:45, 24 June 2015 (BST)

@Fiala1: What do you mean it doesn't show up? It appears that the larger version was creating issues but the 283kB file currently uploaded works. My user page has two different size thumbnails of the image, and it also appears on the image's information page. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 20:58, 24 June 2015 (BST)
It most likely was a caching issue. You should always try purging the page first before doing anything else. Wynter (talk) 04:15, 25 June 2015 (BST)
Tech:Noticeboard#Thumbnail problems the image is now working because it was manually resized.. I've seen this problem in other places with large images.. Like I said on the noticeboard I'm not sure if it's an issue with the built in thumbnail size limiter or if it's an actual limitation that will have to be worked around. Anyways, feels more techy than stewardy -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 23:21, 25 June 2015 (BST)

Delete my wiki

Greetings all. Please delete my wiki completely. I don't want the old pages showing up in any new wiki under this subdomain:

I have decided not to follow through and create another cannabis wiki. I was thinking of a different focus for this cannabis wiki, versus the other cannabis wikis out there I have worked on. But I don't have the time.

I want complete deletion and not adoption. That way people will not be confused if they see my user name on the edit history of any pages here. They were mostly framework pages and categories. I already deleted all the pages and categories. And I don't want them undeleted. --Timeshifter (talk) 09:59, 28 June 2015 (BST)

Hi Timeshifter! I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have time to attend to your other cannabis wiki. Unfortunately, we do not delete wikis here at Orain upon request. Your wiki will follow the dormant wikis policy and be closed upon meeting inactivity criteria. If another steward of sysadmin wants to close it earlier, they may do so. After 6 months of inactivity, the wiki may then be permanently deleted. I do not think you will have anyone restoring pages with your username in the edit history, and if they do, you are free to ask them to remove it at their discretion. I'm sorry we cannot directly fulfill your request, but thank you for using Orain! -- Joe G. (Talk) 18:46, 28 June 2015 (BST)
I can understand the hesitation on the part of a wiki farm to delete a wiki. Some wiki farms are OK with it, and some aren't. Wikis with one controlling person (only one bureaucrat or steward) should be allowed to do this in my opinion, especially if nearly all the edits are theirs. In my wiki, there are *no* pages to defend or be worried about. See: - only redirects show up. I am not even sure how they arrived here. I think a steward may have misinterpreted or enlarged one of my import requests. I did not bother deleting the redirects since they are not seen anywhere after all the pages were deleted. Those redirects in the "AllPages" results though might irritate somebody that adopts the subdomain. Why not give them a clean wiki instead, by deleting the wiki completely. Then give them single-bureaucrat status on the totally clean subdomain of
From Dormant wikis page: "After 6 months of inactivity, a wiki may be permanently deleted from the network unless a request is made for archival where the wiki will be kept on the network indefinitely or until such a request becomes outdated." There is nothing to archive. So why wait? --Timeshifter (talk) 22:10, 28 June 2015 (BST)
The dormant wiki page also says that someone can adopt the wiki within that period if they so wish. I know it is not your desire that someone does, but if they want to, we don't have a compelling reason not to let them. At this time, I am not in a position to make an exception to the policy and think it should stand as is. If another steward wishes to make an exception, that is their choice and I will respect it. I'm sorry that my answer isn't what you'd like it to be, but it is the policy as it is currently written. -- Joe G. (Talk) 01:56, 29 June 2015 (BST)
OK. Could you ask the other stewards about this? Rules usually have exceptions. "I know it is not your desire that someone does". No, I want someone else to adopt the subdomain, I am trying to free it up completely.
I have a question. Is there some kind of mass delete function, I or you can use to delete all the redirects listed here: - nearly all of them never redirected to actual pages here. I only experimented with a few opinion pages here months ago when I was thinking of forking them from my pages on Wikia's cannabis wiki, where I am the sole bureaucrat. But I soon deleted the opinion pages here after further thought, and deciding against forking everything from Wikia to other wikis. I had already forked the Global Marijuana March city pages to Shoutwiki's cannabis wiki, where I am the steward. I had decided to keep the opinion pages on Wikia months ago. I was thinking of maybe starting another focus here on the Orain wiki. But I no longer have the time to do so. Anyway, I don't want to have to tediously delete the redirects one by one. Can you or another steward or admin help? --Timeshifter (talk) 09:41, 29 June 2015 (BST)

(reset outdent) So, what you basically want, is to delete all of the redirects that still remain or all of the pages listed on AllPages? We do have Special:Nuke, but I don't know if it is available on each wiki. If not, I will happily delete whatever pages you want. -- Joe G. (Talk) 17:24, 29 June 2015 (BST)

Actually, I just tried to nuke some of the pages on your wiki and because they are not recently added, I cannot. The system administrators do have the ability to run deleteBatch.php on a list of pages. I'll go poke one of the for you. -- Joe G. (Talk) 17:27, 29 June 2015 (BST)
Thanks. --Timeshifter (talk) 19:23, 29 June 2015 (BST)

Fatal exception of type MWException

I've noticed some wikis have been getting this error. Every few page refreshes it comes up. So far I've seen it on allthetropes and right orain wikis. The page is blank except for things like "[a2eacd4d] 2015-06-29 03:21:56: Fatal exception of type MWException" and "[bf1321ce] 2015-06-29 03:22:01: Fatal exception of type MWException". Chemtrail Morgellons (talk) 04:41, 29 June 2015 (BST)

Like I said below, both wikis work for me. The issues have been resolved. --Reception123 (talk) 14:38, 29 June 2015 (BST)

Deleting Wikis : 6 Months of inactivity

Hello, there are some wiki's that have been closed for 6 months and have not been adopted by anyone, as of the Dormant wikis these wiki's should be deleted by a steward. There is a list below of these Wikis. I have not yet found all of them, I will add them to this list. @Joe G: You have helped me with the Dormant wikis so maybe you could do the deleting. --Reception123 (talk) 08:41, 29 June 2015 (BST)

@Reception123: I don't think I have the technical ability to delete the wiki, just close them. As a wikicreator, you have the ability to add the databases of those wikis to the Deleted Wikis List and someone will take care of it from there. -- Joe G. (Talk) 15:52, 29 June 2015 (BST)
Okay, as a steward I thought you would have the ability to delete wikis. Probably yes, somebody else will. --Reception123 (talk) 17:23, 29 June 2015 (BST)
@Addshore: as you have root access. Reception123 (talk) 19:27, 30 June 2015 (BST)

exception on

when we try to edit, we get: [85861b6b] 2015-06-29 08:16:52: Fatal exception of type MWException We also get the same type of exception, when we try to look at the Recent changes page. Fiala1 (talk) 09:17, 29 June 2015 (BST)

I can perfectly see both the RecentChanges page, and edit other pages. I have heard the error has been solved. --Reception123 (talk) 14:35, 29 June 2015 (BST)
Monday, it came back and by mid-day everything was down on all wikis except for the very front page of -- all other pages were down. I did a test and found that Cloudflare wasn't bringing up the CAPTCHA page for Tor so something is being routed wrong. Orain stayed down all Monday through the night and came back at some point today, Tuesday...but I only checked first an hour ago. Today, meta and allthetropes work perfectly but right gets errors about 3/4th of the time when not logged in and about 1/2 of the time when logged in. As of now it happens far more often on &action=history pages and Special: pages like Special:Recentchanges and submitting things to a show preview does it like all of the time. Chemtrail Morgellons (talk) 21:24, 30 June 2015 (BST)

Now (30th June, 2015), 22:22 evening, Middle European Time, again: Selecting recent changes causes:
[848019ec] 2015-06-30 20:21:34: Fatal exception of type MWException
Calling edit on any the page also causes exeption
[97094500] 2015-06-30 20:28:53: Fatal exception of type MWException
Strangely the error comes and goes, after page reload it disappears, and later re-appears.
Fiala1 (talk) 21:23, 30 June 2015 (BST)

right.orain is now fully down and even after hundreds of refreshes, won't load anymore. Other wikis still work. Chemtrail Morgellons (talk) 00:03, 1 July 2015 (BST)

The MWException mainly affects right.orain even though the extensions are for another wiki, likely the testwiki. The testwiki and all the other wikis get intermitent errors but are not down. Sunday, Monday, and today right.orain gets growing MWException and then permanently goes down around noon from MWException. It stays down for about 22 hours, then is up about 2 hours, then goes right back down. Last month Orain had outages like this and it lasted weeks.

I tested it and I am not getting the Cloudflare CAPTCHA when I connect on Tor so Cloudflare is not up. That may be related to the issue. Chemtrail Morgellons (talk) 01:58, 1 July 2015 (BST)

All of these should now be fixed. ·addshore· talk to me! 09:32, 4 July 2015 (BST)

Notification of resignment

Dear readers,

I write this message because I want to explain the community something. You may or may not know who I am, but I’m currently best known as a wiki creator, global sysop and system admininistrator who has been part of Orain since the beginning (in July two years ago!). I have various rights and roles here, and I have always contributed to Orain as best as I can. But, from now on, I will no longer be a wiki creator, global sysop or sysadmin.

I’ll immediately resign from all my positions (as of writing: Meta sysop, Meta bureaucrat, Global Rollbacker, Global Sysop, system administrator (and some other accounts related to this)). There are a few reasons for that.

I don’t really like the work anymore. Despite the fact that I work as a volunteer, I feel the work has become more of a responsibility than something you like to do. That’s not anyone’s fault (I really mean that), but I still don’t really enjoy it anymore compared to a while back before this. I don’t want to do volunteer work if I feel it’s not really volunteering anymore.

There are also some more reasons besides the above one, but I’d like to keep them private. I’d like to thank you all for all the great times I have had with you. It was a pleasure to work here. I hopefully may see you somewhere else, like on a Wikimedia project, or on IRC.

Oh, and as a last note: I will leave Orain, but not things which are more or less known by people on Orain (e.g. IRC and Wikimedia projects). If you want to contact me, you are always welcome to do so. Either via Special:EmailUser/Southparkfan, IRC (you can usually find me in #wikimedia- channels), or on a Wikimedia project. My username there is Southparkfan.

Thank you for the great times, and goodbye!
Southparkfan (talk) 18:43, 30 June 2015 (BST)

Rest in peace SPF July 2013 - June 2015. You will be dearly missed around here, and I plan on keeping in touch. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 18:49, 30 June 2015 (BST)
You will be missed! You were a great user around here, I hope you do good in what you plan to do!

I have a suspicion that you were doing technical work behind the scenes to keep Orain smoothly and now that you're not here, the server is acting like it misses you. Chemtrail Morgellons (talk) 01:21, 3 July 2015 (BST)

Sad to see you go! ·addshore· talk to me! 09:31, 4 July 2015 (BST)

Can I become a wiki creator. I would like to help more in Orain. Regards. Cyborg (talk) 21:31, 30 June 2015 (BST)

For the record, while this is not technically a vote, I'd oppose it as not now. -- Joe G. (Talk) 01:00, 3 July 2015 (BST)

Continued problems on All The Tropes

Every page has the same error when trying to load the subpage tabs at the top. Instead of the buttons to take you to Quotes, Laconic, and such, it displays "Lua error: callParserFunction: function "SUBPAGES" was not found". — Preceding unsigned comment added by QuestionableSanity (talkcontribs)
You're lucky allthetropes is even up. right is completely down while all others are up. Whatever's causing the tab error on allthetropes is in Template:Trope. Template:Trope has code like #vardefine, #ifeq, and #invoke which I've seen have parsing trouble on wikis. Chemtrail Morgellons (talk) 04:16, 1 July 2015 (BST)
Comment by Sysadmin @QuestionableSanity: @Chemtrail Morgellons: Orain is experiencing global issues with several extensions that use parser functions, and I'm having trouble figuring out why. The issue on ATT is caused by thee fact that several of these extensions have been disabled to make the site accessible. RightWiki is currently experiencing a continuous outage because it uses Extension:EmbedVideo, but I currently can't disable the extension. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 12:30, 1 July 2015 (BST)
Is there an alternate video extension? Chemtrail Morgellons (talk) 22:51, 1 July 2015 (BST)
All extensions are now enabled again, let us know if you see any issues... ·addshore· talk to me! 09:30, 4 July 2015 (BST)

Extensions disabled

Extension:EmbedVideo has been disabled.

P.S. The speed of the wiki has been too slow. --MINT (talk) 01:30, 2 July 2015 (BST)

@MINT: The sysadmins had to disable that extension earlier today in order to fix the MWException errors. I don't have an ETA of when it will be re-enabled (if it will be), but you are welcome to wait for a sysadmin to comment further. -- Joe G. (Talk) 02:40, 2 July 2015 (BST)
This has now been reenabled here ·addshore· talk to me! 09:29, 4 July 2015 (BST)
Activation but it does not operate. --MINT (talk) 01:36, 6 July 2015 (BST)

After being up and down for several days, I notice it's back now but the video code is very different. Not the code for using it, but the code it generates for displaying a video. Then I checked on other websites and I see it's actually YouTube that changed their code--all websites everywhere get this negative change. If you have flashblock and then rightclick to open a video in a new window, it used to display a nice full screen view https colon // and now it displays a broken view https colon //!flashvars#video_id=nascar-nscs15-day2-high5 . I wonder if YouTube was behind the extension problem.

Also replace "colon" with ":" on the links. I keep getting "Your edit includes new external links. To protect the wiki against automated spam, we kindly ask you to type the two words you see in the box below:" and no box comes up to enter the CAPTCHA into. Chemtrail Morgellons (talk) 23:04, 6 July 2015 (BST)

@Chemtrail Morgellons: I'm so sorry that it won't let you add external links. I've gone ahead and assigned you the necessary permissions (I hope!) to not require you to complete the captcha and add the external links. I'll file a report with our system administrators and see what I can do about the captcha not appearing as well, it definitely should be working! Thank you for also explaining the new YouTube thing! -- Joe G. (Talk) 02:02, 7 July 2015 (BST)
Thank you for the account change. Hmmm... I notice the extension video is back off again. I don't know why the extension still has errors. It might be a combination of two extensions together like people taking multiple pharmaceutical pills as medicine and have bad interactions. You might've heard of elderly people taking 30 different pills together. Chemtrail Morgellons (talk) 08:35, 7 July 2015 (BST)
How about using a different thing to view Youtube Extensions? --MINT (talk) 01:15, 9 July 2015 (BST)

I can't able to edit entire articles in my private wiki.

It's only available as 'View Source' and I can't edit them with the reason is 'You do not have permission to edit this page' even my account having administrator and bureaucrat rights on that wiki and there's no protection has applied. So please check that problem if possible? Thanks for read these section. :) --Lagoon (talk) 09:41, 3 July 2015 (BST)

That is odd. @NDKilla: --Reception123 (talk) 09:45, 3 July 2015 (BST)
@Lagoon: I may be mistaken but it appears you have several edits on your wiki. Did this issue just start? I've been trying to disable editing on closed wikis, sorry about this. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 15:38, 3 July 2015 (BST)
@NDKilla: Yeah, these problem was started at last a day or two days. --Lagoon (talk) 16:11, 3 July 2015 (BST)
@NDKilla: The issue is with the commit you made last night. You removed the 'edit' right from the user group and now no one has the edit right at all on private wikis. You and I can edit them because we are given that right in our global steward group, but otherwise, no group on the private wiki has the ability to edit. I would suggest adding 'edit' to the sysop, crat, and member groups on private wikis. -- Joe G. (Talk) 23:18, 3 July 2015 (BST)

@Reception123: shouldn't he have 30 days from the time the wiki is unlocked and the notice is removed? -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 08:22, 20 July 2015 (BST)
Yes, I am sorry I will wait 4 more days and then the notice will go in action. --Reception123 (talk) 11:11, 20 July 2015 (BST)

Request importupload right - farmingsimulator - Requesting importupload right (membership in importer group). Thank you :) --Slivicon (talk) 23:50, 20 July 2015 (BST)

Hi there Silvicon! I've granted you membership in the importer group on your wiki. Typically, this right is granted on a temporary basis, but I did not specify an end date for you. When you feel that you no longer need this right, please let us know. So, this is  Done. -- Joe G. (Talk) 00:13, 21 July 2015 (BST)
@Joe G: Thank you, Joe. I am finished importing the farming simulator wiki latest revision XML export from the Wikia farming simulator wiki, under creative commons license. After some discussion with @NDKilla:, I've been made aware that some of the Wikia content needed to be deleted, as well as a large number of pages that were not written by me and not relevant to the new farming simulator wiki on orain. I believe I've completed all the obvious deletions, but still am going through each remaining page. I had also mentioned to @Reception123: on the requests board, but I would like to ask that, because this is a new wiki, and I am the only contributor so far, and I'm deleting all content that may seem unattributed, I want to ensure no possibility of any complaint or future restoration of deleted imported data. Would it be possible to please have someone run the maintenance scripts mw:Manual:DeleteOldRevisions.php and mw:Manual:DeleteArchivedRevisions.php (obviously only for I may have to request it be done again in the near future once I've gone over the remaining imported data, but wanted to ask now since the bulk of the obvious has been either deleted or removed in edits. Thank you. --Slivicon (talk) 18:08, 21 July 2015 (BST)

Extensions Error

Extension:EmbedVideo the installation but, not to work. This video is not shown in the document. Replace text, failed to function. --MINT (talk) 00:25, 21 July 2015 (BST)

This issue is an important issue in the (my)wiki. I want a quick solution. --MINT (talk) 01:10, 23 July 2015 (BST)
An error has now disappeared. However, there were no errors have occurred in the past again. --MINT (talk) 03:15, 23 July 2015 (BST)
@MINT: So that means there is no more error? Reception123 (talk) 05:21, 23 July 2015 (BST)
There is no one now. However, the situation is probably not as reliable. --MINT (talk) 09:52, 23 July 2015 (BST)
I will notify sysadmin's about the issue and see what can be done. --Reception123 (talk) 12:27, 23 July 2015 (BST)
Was this an exception or some other type of error? Did you take a screenshot? ·addshore· talk to me! 12:33, 23 July 2015 (BST)
@MINT: Reception123 (talk) 12:35, 23 July 2015 (BST)
I'm sorry. I could not capture. Later it will capture when an error occurs. --MINT (talk) 09:04, 24 July 2015 (BST)
@MINT: Could you at least give us a link? Reception123 (talk) 10:49, 24 July 2015 (BST)

(Reset indent) @MINT: per my user page on the wiki and Special:Version it appears as though EV is working. If you encounter any more errors please capture it and leave a note here. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 12:49, 24 July 2015 (BST)

An error occurred again. File:Youtuberror.jpg --MINT (talk) 01:02, 26 July 2015 (BST)

The problem happened last month and it used to shut down Orain for days. It's many more extensions than this actually. There's embedvideo and there's what allthetropes uses on its article pages for a menu. I believe there's more. The adminstrators of Orain other than Addshore tried to fix it and could not so they disabled all the extensions. July 4, Addshore came in and fixed it, which lasted a day and then Orain started going down so I emailed him. Addshore, being the skilled technical person he is, fixed it so it permanently would never have Orain go down. He set it so the MWExceptions now get written into a logfile [2] so now Orain never went down from this again. (Wikia does the same thing [3]). The extention error wasn't fixed, just the issue of Orain going down completely. There appears to be a conflict between multiple extensions or god knows what because when the error occurs, all the extensions I mentioned stop working like they're disabled, but nobody disables them. An hour later, they work again. Addshore has not replied to emails since July 10 and the issue has remained as is. Addshore is a brillian technical person it seems (I thought so since I read this entry on his blog) but the issue still continues. Embedvideo itself is nothing more than some basic HTML code and it literally just needs a simple template with pure HTML that copies the exact code with a variable for the video and title and it would work the same -- the extension itself however appears to not cache its work for more than an hour and one option is replacing it with a pure HTML template (just copy the HTML code for each video site, likely only YouTube, and a Steward with permissions can make a pure HTML template). However invoking it while similar to invoking a template uses "#ev:youtube" and starting a template title with a "#" character is not allowed, though a template "ev:youtube" is allowed. Or perhaps Addshore or somebody can fix the extension issues permanently. It sounds like near the end of June an extension was either added or updated and multiple are conflicting. I am very happy with Orain very strong uptime this month though. Chemtrail Morgellons (talk) 01:42, 31 July 2015 (BST)

It's been going on for 33 days so far. Chemtrail Morgellons (talk) 12:11, 6 August 2015 (BST)

This error can not you fix it? --MINT (talk) 00:40, 8 August 2015 (BST)
Orain technicians are the ones who have access to fix it. It is in Orain's server-side configuration. Addshore sent the errors to logfiles and the errors which my guess is are just the vague errors it used to send publicaly, "MWException" followed by random numbers. If the errors can be logged in detail, the source can be found. I am not sure how many extensions are affected but multiple extensions probably are in conflict with one another.

Request to enable importing

Hello! I'd like to ask to have importing (membership in importer group) of XML files enabled on Thank you! :) ConWorkShop (talk) 20:22, 25 July 2015 (BST)

@ConWorkShop: how many pages are you going to be importing and how big is the XML file? Note that this right is assigned by stewards only and usually temporarily. I'm assuming you want it not permission to give it. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 20:59, 25 July 2015 (BST)
