Unfortunately, it seems that MWZIP will be closing down in October. How should it's page be marked? Verification: Rider ranger47 (talk) 21:42, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

The description should be extended saying that the farm is defunct. So far we do not have an extra marker to mark defunct farms. Also the MWZIP assignments from the individual wikis should be changed in case the wiki moved. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 21:51, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

PeaceTech Wiki Registration Qs

Hi Kghbln,

I noticed that you did some edits for my PeaceTech Wiki entry - thank you. I have a few more questions about my page.

  1. I've tried to upload an image file for the PeaceTech Wiki logo and I get a bunch of errors. What should I do?
  2. I notice that my entry has been marked 'inactive' - what should I do to activate it?

Best Wishes,


Hi Derek,
first of all thank you for adding the wiki! As for you questions:
  1. Uploading files is currently broken. I reported the issue. So we have to be a bit patient here.
  2. Acutally your wiki is not marked inactive. Data collection already started.
Cheers, --[[kgh]] (talk) 13:49, 5 September 2016 (UTC)


Could you add "phab" as an interwiki to the Special:Interwiki table? Currently bugzilla exists but MediaWiki's current ticketing system (as you probably already know) is now Phabricator, so it'd make sense to have one for that. Thanks in advance! :D

I also do a lot of stuff Brickimedia-related (but you probably already noticed that heheh) and linking to if and when there's a related ticket is much faster with interwiki prefixes, so there's another reason there I guess. :P

 :) Yeah, done! Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 18:44, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

thanks, it's appreciated! SamanthaNguyen (talk) 01:03, 24 September 2016 (UTC)


Can pages for wikis on here be allowed to be deleted for being inappropriate? The bumble bee bot just auto-created a page (Extension:Fleshbot)for an inappropriate wiki, not that it can actually detect whether or not a wiki is inappropriate, but I think both (or at least the wiki) should be deleted. Could you also protect the title so that it can't be created again by bots or users?

thanks in advance!

*is shuddering*

SamanthaNguyen (talk) 01:51, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

No, but they can be marked as being an adult site and they can be demoted so they do not show up in lists. I have just done this for the respective wiki. --[[kgh]] (talk) 06:46, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Mass deletion of pages

Hi mate,

Why did you delete the page related to my website Le_Dico_des_Ados?

Kind regards

--DSwissK (talk) 10:09, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

Heiya, yeah, this was accidentally done. Must have clicked "Delete selection" instead of "Invert selection" so I nuked all these pages. I kinda feel like being Donald Trump with the fortunate difference that we are back in business now. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 12:40, 4 October 2016 (UTC)
Haha ๐Ÿ˜‚ thanks for the laugh. --DSwissK (talk) 13:08, 4 October 2016 (UTC)
Do you think you could restore the statistics? I'd like to see the graphs from the creatio date of the website, like it used to be before you erased it. --DSwissK (talk) 14:09, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
No, I am afraid, so there was indeed collateral damage. I am sorry for this. :( --[[kgh]] (talk) 19:14, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Query and error graphs

Hi Kghbln,

how can I activate the last five graphs for my wikis? (e.g. )

I think I have activated all possible SMW native properties.

It would be very helpful for me to know current query count because I am in the process of eliminating unneeded queries.

Thanks --Ioannis Protonotarios (talk) 14:27, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Heiya Ioannis,
I just by chance picked The_Great_Greek_Whatever and saw that it works indeed for this wiki. So I believe you implemented the process correctly. Sometimes there are indeed issue fetching the data which I think is originating in BumbleBee not playing well with all setups for webservers. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:52, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

You may not use that logo without permission. --Idris (talk) 13:19, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

I am utterly sorry. I will clear the wiki and the logo. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 18:55, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
Assuming you really just meant the logo I restored the entry for the wiki. I this was wrong please advise. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 19:09, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I only meant the logo. Thanks. --Idris (talk) 20:49, 13 April 2017 (UTC)



Can you move ์ž์œ ๋ฐ˜๋‹ฌ์œ„ํ‚ค to ์ž์œ ๋ฐ˜๋‹ฌ์œ„ํ‚ค ( so I can track a same name of wiki under the dofferent domain?

Thanks, — revi 22:45, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

No problem. Done. --[[kgh]] (talk) 05:42, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

One more wiki to rename: ์‹ญ๋•์œ„ํ‚ค changed their wiki name to ๋ฐ”๋‹ค์œ„ํ‚ค. (They shut their doors down last week, though.) — revi 17:18, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Done. --[[kgh]] (talk) 17:20, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Wrong statistics

Hello. I think that Wikipan is causing trouble in global statistics. Current total page number is -8,982,570,193,217,008,748. Emijrp (talk) 20:54, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

Heiya, I guess you tracked down the issue of the problem. I just deactivated the website. Let's see how the bots react to this. Changing the bots is not possible for me. Thanks for the pointer and cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 21:26, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
So this did not help since the bots have a live of their own. I just switched to another system of counting which should be much closer to reality as long is Wikipan is taking a flying leap. Thanks again for spotting the cause of the issue. --[[kgh]] (talk) 06:51, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Farm:Farms not updating

Hi, it looks like even after the new wikis I added to Miraheze, the Farm:Farms page is still stuck at 404,700 pages for Miraheze which it was before too. Any ideas why? Reception123 (talk) 16:09, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

These pages are updating but with a very high latency. Actually the best will be to run a shallow update on the server on a regular basis to help this which is currently not done. So you have to first refresh (action purge) the farm page for Miraheze and that the general farms page to manually trigger the update. I have just done so and now we are at about 475,000+ pages. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 16:16, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much! :) Reception123 (talk) 16:19, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for granting me the trusted user permission. Another question: If you sort Farm:Miraheze by pages, it seems to be working, but The Multilingual Encyclopedia ( can not be seen in this list, even though it has about 16000 pages. Reception123 (talk) 05:36, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
You are welcome. :) Since there are more than 50 wikis you will have to use the further results link on that page. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 07:21, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
Oh, I see. It can be hard to find though, and I still think it should be on the first page when its sorted by the number of pages. Reception123 (talk) 07:56, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
No, that's just the way it is with this result format. It only sorts the visible entries and not all of them. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:12, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
Ok :) Sorry for raising so many issues, but I've discovered another small issue. When you try to sort wiki farms by "articles" descending, it remains blocked at ascending and does not work. Reception123 (talk) 10:26, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, that's a bit odd. However I think this was resolved in recent versions of SMW. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 11:29, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for updating my page

I copied that from my wiki and didn't even bother to look at it. Thanks for catching the faulty use of {{SITENAME}}. Pschmehl (talk) 21:57, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

It was a guess but and educated one I guess. Happens to me all the time too. :) Also good to know: People actually read user pages. :) Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 22:00, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Move "DonateBoxInSidebar" to Extension namespace

Can you move DonateBoxInSidebar to Extension:DonateBoxInSidebar, please?

Thank you in advance.

---Suriyaa Kudo (talk) 17:27, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

Done! --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:20, 5 November 2017 (UTC)
