    Hello Reception!

    Hello Reception, I'm TheTVFan from Orain. I see that Orain wiki farm is offline, so I came here and in my opinion, this is a good wiki. MediaWiki software is also very fast here. :) --TheTVFan (talk) 10:09, 20 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    @TheTVFan: Thanks, and yes Orain has been DDOSED, all data has been deleted (latest backup 5 june) and it might never come back. I have made you admin and bureaucrat. Reception123 (talk) 10:14, 20 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Thanks for the rights, which I will use to improve this wikia. Would you like me to create a page about Miraheze on IndexWiki? It's a wiki which has a list of all wikis in the wikisphere. Also, I would like to identify myself to become a wiki creator/administrator on meta. How can I do it? --TheTVFan (talk) 10:18, 20 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Thanks for helping. For wiki creator please go to M:Stewards' noticeboard and add why you would like to become a wiki creator etc. For administrator I don't think we need anymore for now but you can apply at M:Requests for permissions.
    P.S. : Wikia is a company, wiki is the term for a wiki Reception123 (talk) 10:20, 20 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I am requesting now. :) About wiki/wikia, I am very confused because in the past I worked on a Wikia-wiki and they call them "wikias". --TheTVFan (talk) 10:35, 20 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Okay. Sure, I have made comments on both. Good luck! And thanks for offering to help! --Reception123 (talk) 11:29, 20 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Coloured username

    Hello, I wanted to insert the coloured username in MediaWiki:Wikia.css but it doesn't work. Can you fix it?
    Also, I added some policies and tried to improve the home page, but it is still different from the Orain one. And I also uploaded the old logo here. --TheTVFan (talk) 19:14, 25 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    As NDKilla said, we do not want to be copying Orain we want to make ourselves a different testwiki, therefore we should have a different Main page IMO. And for the usernames I'm not sure, please ask someone else. Reception123 (talk) 04:13, 26 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @NDKilla: Do you know how to insert the coloured usernames? --TheTVFan (talk) 07:29, 26 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @TheTVFan: What colored usernames? Dusti's was just inline HTML, and you can transclude templates if your html is too long.. Also, why would it be MediaWiki:Wikia.css ? Last time I checked we don't have a skin called Wikia. You should put it on MediaWiki:Common.css if you want it to apply to all users (which I wouldn't usually recommend... I'll check it) or MediaWiki:Vector.css etc for skin users. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 14:46, 26 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @NDKilla: Okay, I understand. The problem is that I copied it from a Wikia wiki, and it's a bit different. Now I have solved. :) ?.S.: Why was there an oversight? --TheTVFan (talk) 15:39, 26 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Hello Reception. I created a new logo, let me know what do you think about it. File:Logo Miraheze TestWiki.png --TheTVFan (talk) 07:42, 27 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Again, we do not want to copy Orain, this is still copying Orain and can be seen. Reception123 (talk) 07:48, 27 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    (No sysadmin hat, just 'crat here hat) I found some issue with the new logo.
    1. Logo's background is not blank. (By meaning blank, its background should look like File:Wikinews-logo-en.png.)
    2. The center pic might make people think we are fork of Orain, while we are NOT.
    3. IMO, I don't like the font.

    Okay, can you create a logo for the wiki? I don't know how to make it blank :p --TheTVFan (talk) 08:41, 27 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    rfp templates

    I don't know why the rfp templates are how they are, but the preload/subst templates can easily be done with two templates instead of the current 3. I'll be working on fixing them later, please feel free to revert any edits. -- Cheers, NDKilla ( TalkContribs ) 15:40, 17 December 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    RE: Reverting after testing

    I already know that, but the reason was no testing, I deleted the page because its content is not about the wiki. --Player (talk) 16:14, 17 December 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Hi Reception

    Can you make a describ the wiki in TestWiki:About so that no a vandal or idly by newuser.TriX (talk) 12:05, 14 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    @TriX: Hi TriX, I don't think we need an "About page" as we already have TestWiki:Main policy and all the other policies, which should explain everything to new users. Reception123 (talk) 08:41, 15 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Okay:) TriX (talk) 09:50, 15 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @TriX and Reception123: Apologies for replying on a talk page archive, but in fairness, I did only recently set up this archiving. Anyway, just wanted to let you both know that I finally figured out how to update those page footer links on Public Test Wiki. Per this MediaWiki manual page, MediaWiki:Disclaimers sets the displayed text and MediaWiki:Disclaimerpage sets the local page location of and for the disclaimers page. MediaWiki:Aboutsite similarly sets the displayed text and MediaWiki:Aboutpage sets the local page location of and for the about page. Per the discussion between you both, there really isn't a need for a separate page about Public Test Wiki, so I have set those pages to TestWiki Main Policy and TestWiki Policies, respectively.

    Hey! I realise administrators cannot add rollback, autopatrolled and confirmed flags per Special:ListGroupRights. Jianhui67 (talk) 14:18, 15 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    You can try on User:ExampleTriX (talk) 03:01, 20 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Hi reception

    Can you create task for remove a right inactivity for 6 month automated?TriX (talk) 08:27, 28 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Unfortunately, that would need a script, and I don't think it's necessary for the moment, and it would be too complicated. Reception123 (talk) 10:31, 28 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]


    I am officialy back into Miraheze and its projects, I will be active once again in this wiki too. SleepyMode (talk) 08:01, 4 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    How about File:NewLogo2.png? --Gyakusyuu no Amanojaku (talk) 05:13, 10 March 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Why delete User:Primeferac's commonts...

    See here. Anyway, I added back. --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 13:01, 2 April 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Not only, it's because their edits were pointless, the filter is meant to show a "test filter" so it should have some content. Reception123 (talk) 05:33, 4 April 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]


    That's my another account. I'm writing Twinkle and has been away just now. I'm back now. --Amanojaku (talk) 11:01, 4 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
