I have another wiki in the farm of wiki, i have more information of Spécial:AdminLinks and Spécial:SiteSettings, is for the administration of picture of external by url and more

I have another problème, when i receive a message, my site is not creersonarbre, but creersonarbe,

I see in you Database list "creersonarbrewiki|Creersonarbe|fr|upload"

it is not good

--Zazoult (talk) 09:56, 11 July 2015 (BST)Zazoult

@Zazoult: I've changed the wiki name on the Database list. Also yes, admins of wikis will see "admin links" but there's not an on-wiki site setting page. Some things can be changed by editing things in the "MediaWiki:" namespace but most settings our found in our ansible playbook. I don't know what you mean the administration of picture by external URL. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 12:30, 11 July 2015 (BST)

Non general note from meta

I wanted to leave this here instead of on meta's SN.

I'm not even exactly sure what my responsibilities entirely include. I have things I plan on doing and maintaining but if you need help as wiki creator or anything, feel free to leave me a note somewhere and I'll try to help you. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 19:48, 18 June 2015 (BST)

Okay. Thank you very much. --Reception123(Contributions) (talk) (- 05:02, 19 June 2015 (BST)

Meta note

meta:Proposals for new wikis#Nutritional Therapy Clinic Diary 2015/16 (Status: Not done) with things like this I would generally ask what different id they wanted, or try to make the URL what they want and make the id whatever matches the url.

Either way works I guess. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 20:07, 23 June 2015 (BST)

Okay. Thanks for the advice. Will do next time. --Reception123(Contributions) (talk) (- 05:46, 24 June 2015 (BST)


It's Ok,

Your recent permissions request

No problem. Reception123(Contributions) (talk) (- 10:49, 30 June 2015 (BST)

No title comment by Cocci49

euh ?

(e.g. if you want, write gameofthrones).

What is that, because, when i test to go "Jardindescoccinelles" i don't arrive to go, it's bug ?

Should be fixed? -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 14:32, 6 July 2015 (BST)

Just a note :)

Hey Reception! First off, let me thank you for handling the wiki creation backlog! It is much appreciated. I just wanted to drop by because I saw your GS draft and noticed you said you needed access for wiki creating things. I want to make sure you are aware that GS cannot assign userrights on any wiki, so that still won't solve that wiki creation issue (the sysadmins are working on fixing the extension, though). If you tell me what access (besides userrights) you need, I might be able to get something worked out for you in the meantime. Talk to you soon! -- Joe G. (Talk) 02:44, 2 July 2015 (BST)

I need to be able to

edit protected pages

edit MediaWiki:Sitenotice

assign global userights (e.g. Example@examplewiki)

and probably more but these are the most important ones. I hope it is possible for me to have all these permissions Reception123 (talk) 05:10, 2 July 2015 (BST)

Alright, let me see what I can get you in the mean time. Give me a bit of time to discuss it with the other staff, but I think we will be able to work it out for you. The only thing I don't think we will be able to do for security reasons is the global userrights. There isn't a way (that I know of) to restrict assigning only specific groups through the interface (i.e. not being able to assign anything but sysop and bureaucrat). The reason for my concern is the ability to assign CheckUser and/or Oversight (not that you would or anything like that at all). Like I said, give me a bit of time to see what I can do, though :-) -- Joe G. (Talk) 17:58, 2 July 2015 (BST)
Thank you very much for your help. Of course, I only need to be able to add administrator and bureaucrat (founder permissions), and I totally understand that there are security issues. In the meantime I also requested Meta admin (just for a note). --Reception123 (talk) 18:55, 2 July 2015 (BST)
Per 13:57 . . NDKilla (Talk | contribs | block) changed group permissions for Special:GlobalUsers/Global interface editor. Added edit, editinterface; Removed (none) ‎(For globally editing MediaWiki:Sitenotice (temp for wikicreators)) NDKilla has just created the Global Interface Editors group and assigned you to it. You should no longer need to edit protected main pages to add the inactivity notice, you can now do it in MediaWiki:Sitenotice. -- Joe G. (Talk) 19:05, 2 July 2015 (BST)
I have seen, thanks very much. Now I only need global permissions assigning (of course, if it's possible) Reception123 (talk) 19:08, 2 July 2015 (BST)

Administrator rights

Hi Reception123,

Thanks for the approval of our wiki :) We am having some issues to get the administrator rights, even though we click the "here" link you passed to me We want to change the subdomain from redsostenible to red-sostenible. Also we want to migrate some files from another wiki, we were wondering if there is a tool to import xml files.

Tahnk you so mucho for your help!

    • @Red Sostenible: I've gone ahead and given you sysop and bureaucrat (founder permissions) on your wiki.
    • As for importing, how many pages would you like to import? How big is the xml file. It shouldn't be an issue giving you the importer right.
    • @Addshore: or @FastLizard4: may know about the url change. Currently we don't have any wikis with hyphens or decimals in the URL -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 14:30, 6 July 2015 (BST)
The here link was so Red Sostenible (the user) could request the permissions not actually for granting them. --Reception123 (talk) 15:00, 6 July 2015 (BST)
@Reception123: The xml file is 4,2 MB. I get a look at the import page tool, but I could not see any way to import xml files. The the only page I found for importing is in wiki/Especial:Importar where there is not the xml feature for importing. Maybe I should look somewhere else? Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Red Sostenible (talkcontribs)
I'm going to go ahead and give you the importer right so you can use Especial:Importar. Please notify staff when you are done (importer rights are usually temporary) -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 11:43, 9 July 2015 (BST)
Ok, Done. I could succesfully import. You can keep rights off. Thank you very much

Trouble with Otherrealm Compendium

Hi, thanks so much for approving the wiki, this place looks great. I'm having some trouble, though, because the "create wiki" link worked, but I don't seem to have any admin abilities to edit anything on it. I may just be missing something obvious, any help is appreciated! Thank you.

Hi there! I've gone ahead and given you administrator and bureaucrat rights on your wiki. Happy editing! -- Joe G. (Talk) 00:45, 8 July 2015 (BST)

Driftwood wiki request

I put in a request for the creation of the driftwood wiki on July 5, but it is still listed as pending. Several other wikis have been proposed and approved since then. Have we done something wrong with our application? Please advise. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sleepinglion (talkcontribs)

There is nothing wrong with your request. I just did not see it. I would have checked it anyways. It's  Done Reception123 (talk) 07:05, 8 July 2015 (BST)
And please tell me after you log in, if you want administrator and bureaucrat rights. --Reception123 (talk) 07:06, 8 July 2015 (BST)

Terrific, thank you so much! I apologize if I came across as terse. I would love to have admin and bureaucrat rights. Those will also allow me to grant editing permissions for other users, correct? --Sleepinglion 02:12, 8 July 2015 (EST)
No problem. I should have done your request earlier. I can't personally grant you rights, but I will ask a Steward. And yes, that will allow you to grant editing permissions.

@Joe G: @NDKilla: --Reception123 (talk) 07:24, 8 July 2015 (BST)

@Sleepinglion: the above is  Done as I've given you local rights. If you ever need to have any bureaucrats removed (since only Stewards can) please make a request here -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 12:02, 8 July 2015 (BST)


Why this Spécial:SiteSettings do not exist in the Wiki ???

I don't find that ?

--Zazoult (talk) 10:44, 8 July 2015 (BST)Zazoult

@Zazoult: I don't think that exists. Please could you tell me for what you need it. What site settings do you want to change? --Reception123 (talk) 10:49, 8 July 2015 (BST)

Wiki request. Fighting against real time

Hi Reception123, I saw your message related to the ID of the wiki I was going to open. (Enmiendas reglamento ley de transparecia).

The matter is that we had an emergency to build a space where citizens could amend the Spanish transparency law that is going to be approved this Friday (after tomorrow).

We set up the wiki in Orain, but then we have been forced to find a solution that could permit people to start amending from the same moment.

That's why then we had to build it with an alternative tool (

So right now, for this initiative, maybe the wiki is not useful as the first deadline in tomorrow night. It's really just a matter of time, but we are not the ones who decide the times :-(.

I'm really very sorry for that but, maybe, it's better if we delete the wiki?

What do you think? Would it be a problem? Or do you have any different suggestion?

I am sorry I couldn't create it but I can't create wikis with any name I want, I have to ask the user. The wiki is not created by Orain so I can't really tell you to delete it or not. --Reception123 (talk) 20:16, 8 July 2015 (BST)

Requesting Administrator rights in the Tanods Wiki

I would like to request Administrator Privileges in the wiki to import Templates and Modules from Wikipedia for reference purposes — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mazodan (talkcontribs)

@Mazodan: I've given you administrator and bureaucrat as founder of your wiki. To import pages you'll need to export pages from another file to an XML file (preferably current revisions only). Then let me know how big the file is and I'll give you importer rights on your wiki. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 12:12, 9 July 2015 (BST)
Exported some templates from Wikipedia, XML format. The file size is 364kb Mazodan (talk) 13:58, 9 July 2015 (BST)
@Mazodan: I've gone ahead and given you importer permissions on your wiki. Use Special:Import to upload the XML file. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 14:40, 9 July 2015 (BST)

Question about Tetrad wiki and request for admin and bureaucrat rights

Hi! I recently had a wiki approved, and received a message saying it was available for me to use. However, the domain doesn't seem to be up. How can I access the wiki?

Second, can I please have administrator and bureaucrat rights for the Tetrad Wiki? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mglymour (talkcontribs)

1.I do not know why your wiki doesn't work. @NDKilla:

2. I do not have direct permissions and after you log in on your wiki a Steward/Sysadmin will grant them. --Reception123 (talk) 06:03, 10 July 2015 (BST)

@Mglymour: Your wiki (here) appears to work. Sometimes DNS names just take time to go into effect. Please have yourself or Reception123 ping me after you log in to your wiki so that myself or another Steward/sysadmin may assign local rights. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 09:31, 10 July 2015 (BST)
@NDKilla: Thanks! I've logged in now. {{unsigned|
@Mglymour: done. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 17:19, 10 July 2015 (BST)

Could you give me admin rights?

... As you know, yesterday I requested to make a wiki and you made, so I am thankful to you. I got the message that request you if I want to receive the rights. (I'll modify some MediaWiki: message...) ―Riemann (talk) 15:29, 10 July 2015 (BST)

I do not have the permissions but I will ask a Sysadmin/Steward to. @NDKilla: --Reception123 (talk) 16:00, 10 July 2015 (BST)
 Done -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 17:21, 10 July 2015 (BST)

Could you give me admin rights for OceanBlue/

Thank you for approving the OceanBlue wiki, however I could not create or edit the pages.

Mainpage message. There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, or search the related logs, but you do not have permission to create this page.

Appreciate if you could grant me the admin rights. Thank you Hasmi

@Hasmi: Hi there! In order for me to grant you administrator rights on your wiki (, I need you to first login to it. Once you login, please let me know and I will then be able to grant you the permissions. If you believe that you have already logged in on your wiki, try making an edit to your user page or talk page and then let me know. Happy editing and thank you for choosing Orain! -- Joe G. (Talk) 14:01, 12 July 2015 (BST)

Hi Joe, test my login again, still could not edit or add new page. I like to confirm that I do not have the permission right to edit/create. Thank you Hasmi.
@Joe G: --Reception123 (talk) 04:47, 18 July 2015 (BST)
@Hasmi: @Reception123:  Rights granted there wasn't really a need to ping Joe. After getting sysop he should be able to edit pages now.. As Joe said, we just couldn't give them sysop until the connected to the site (the user didn't exist last time I checked.) -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 08:46, 18 July 2015 (BST)

Thank you for granting the sysop, sorry for the inconveniences I caused. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hasmi (talkcontribs)

No inconveniences were caused by you. You should have actually been given the rights automatically but there's an issue with our CreateWiki extension. Sorry for any inconveniences we caused :) happy editing with your wiki. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 12:18, 19 July 2015 (BST)

Thanks; question on custom domain and custom appearance

Hello there. Thanks for helping us launch the Anthropocene Wiki. We aim to bring the Anthropocene discussion out of academic circles to a wider public consciousness, though a non-profit initiative.

We would like to know if we can use a custom domain to this wiki. We would like the main page to be (for now) and later (for later).

And if it doesn't interefere with the Orain policy, we would like to completely customize it, change the logo, change the theme etc. Please guide us. We do not intend to do anything that's against Orain policy and will always be a honorable and complainant member.

Thanks in deed for your assistance thus far. We look forward to your response.

Regards, Amit Batra On behalf of the emerging Anthropocene project

Yes, custom domain is possible and I will see what I can do. And all the rest of the feautures, logo, theme etc. are also possible. For that you need to give us the file. --Reception123 (talk) 10:53, 17 July 2015 (BST)
@NDKilla: You know more. --Reception123 (talk) 10:54, 17 July 2015 (BST) Hello. There are currently some issues with Custom DNS and I am afraid that it will take some time. @Addshore: Could you take care of this? For the rest please make a request at Request features. Reception123 (talk) 19:36, 19 July 2015 (BST)

Thank You

Thank you for approving my wiki at I noticed when I received the "new message" indicator beside my username on that the indicator had html entities so it looked like &lt;new messages&gt; instead of <new messages> - not sure what causes that, maybe you've already noticed and are aware, but thought I'd mention it (obviously just a cosmetic thing). --Slivicon (talk) 15:27, 18 July 2015 (BST)

@Silvicon: Your welcome! And yes, we are aware of these issues (LC cache), and they should be fixed soon. --Reception123 (talk) 15:58, 18 July 2015 (BST)

404s and namespace aliases

I've started to notice a lot of '404 not found' when loading pages at, including the main page and special pages. If I refresh the page, it will sometimes load without CSS, then another refresh it might load, then another refresh it might 404 again. Is this normal?

Also, I'm curious how to go about requesting namespace aliases, such as creating "FS" for the "Farming Simulator" namespace on the wiki, so that I can start creating shortcuts and use them in edit summaries, like FS:SUBCAT which would be similar to WP:SUBCAT on Wikipedia (On Wikipedia, "WP" is an alias for the "Wikipedia" namespace, i.e. Wikipedia:SUBCAT).

Thanks in advance for your help. --Slivicon (talk) 18:05, 18 July 2015 (BST)

For the first problem this is an error on all the wikis and should be fixed very soon. For the second please request all namespace aliases on Request features (add them to your request). --Reception123 (talk) 18:30, 18 July 2015 (BST)

Farming Simulator Wiki Refresh Cache

Hi there, thank you again and the others on the team for their help getting me started. It appears the Echo extension was installed and the problems with the database errors were resolved, as well as the logo. One thing I have noticed that has continued today, is that the site at sometimes appears to be loading some things from a cache, as the orain logo will sometimes appear, and sometimes the echo notification number indicator by the username will sometimes be gone. If I hit reload/refresh in chrome, it will come back, but if I hit refresh/reload again, it will often go back to the orain logo and the notification number disappearing again. It seems to happen inconsistently as I browse through the site and as I hit reload. Thanks in advance. I also posted another item at Stewards'_noticeboard#Request importupload right yesterday, but perhaps everyone is very busy right now :) --Slivicon (talk) 21:16, 22 July 2015 (BST)

Hi, I tried to find some extensions that I need and I am really screwed. I want to know if it is possible to install on my wiki:

- some kind of SEO extension; - An extension which allow to modify the wikicode - A way to add my wiki to my Google search console ( ex webmaster tools). - an extension which allow user to download a pdf copy of a page.




File uploads / external link captcha

Many thanks for setting up the wiki for us. Two questions:

  • I don't see the 'file upload' option in the 'tools' menu - how do I upload files?
  • Is it possible to disable the captcha for external links? We will need to add quite a few of these links to our Wiki.

Thanks, Jo

I've made you a sysop and bureaucrat on your wiki. Let me know if you, as a bureaucrat, can add people to the "emailconfirmed" group. This group doesn't need to do captchas. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 17:13, 24 July 2015 (BST)
