ViacomCBS Wiki 2

Can you delete ViacomCBS Wiki 2 as I accidently created a duplicate Thanks --Nintendofan885T&Cs apply 14:05, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Done. --[[kgh]] (talk) 17:56, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Kids' WB! Wiki - founding date

Also do you know how to fix Kids' WB! Wiki as the foundering date seems to be broken --Nintendofan885T&Cs apply 14:52, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

It appears that you have to enter 12 instead of 00. Hope this is ok. I am not really familiar with this strange and confusing am/pm stuff. --[[kgh]] (talk) 17:56, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
yeah, thanks for looking at it --Nintendofan885T&Cs apply 18:36, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Zazaki Wiktionary

Hi, can you move Wikipedia (diq) 2 to Wiktionary (diq) as I messed up the naming. Thanks --Nintendofan885T&Cs apply 18:36, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Done. --[[kgh]] (talk) 18:42, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
It looks like you've moved it to Wikipedia (diq) rather than Wiktionary (diq). The old page at Wikipedia (diq) also needs to be restored after you've fixing the name --Nintendofan885T&Cs apply 18:10, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
What a mess. There were indeed strange redirects I did not really look at but I even more did not expect a wiktionary being added as a wikipedia. ;) Anyhow, I hope this is ok now. --[[kgh]] (talk) 00:15, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, I've just recreated the page under the correct name. Yeah, It was because I was creating several pages on new wikis and forgot to change the project name. The redirect was just because I had linked to it from the Wikidata item (Q104778212) and didn't want the link to be broken before you fixed it. --Nintendofan885T&Cs apply 16:31, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
Ah, I get it. "I've just recreated the page under the correct name." Rather ask me to fix the typo in the existing entry. Done now. ;) Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 16:41, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
Whoops, thanks --Nintendofan885T&Cs apply 18:45, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
No worries. I guess we both were all at sea a bit. --[[kgh]] (talk) 22:13, 14 January 2021 (UTC)


Why is farm Farm:GUAIL not showing in the list of farms Farm:Farms? --Admin (talk) 17:06, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

For me it was a matter of purging the page. In there. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 18:23, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
And how could it be solved? --Admin (talk) 18:51, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
By you purging the page. --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:57, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

Help on a template?

Hi! I see you do MediaWiki consulting, I'm in the process of setting up a wiki (the one I just added to WikiApiary), and have it mostly working but there's one bit of functionality which I've not been able to figure out. If you'd be interested in a one-off bit of work, I'd be interested to hear how much implementing the features described here would cost? Happy to answer any questions! --ete (talk) 16:22, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for asking. Currently I do not really have a lot of time. Perhaps I can somehow guide you to the solution. Did you already consider the incoming format (or perhaps inverse properties)? Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 18:50, 11 March 2021 (UTC) PS Do not do $wgGroupPermissions['*']['writeapi'] = false; since SMW needs the API to work properly. It looks like you are doing something like this.
Okay, thanks for the suggestions, I was not aware of either of those options. We're not intentionally diabling writeapi for users, I wonder why that would be the case.. how did you find that we had it set up wrong so I can check whether different things fix it? --ete (talk) 21:07, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
I think the "Incoming" format will help you here. Inverse properties are more for individual queries on page scope. When it comes to the API I see that the little icon on the top right which is indicating the page examination by SMW is endlessly "spinning". This is usually the result of a blocked API. At least this is what I once had as a result of doing so. Perhaps there is another reason I am not aware of. --[[kgh]] (talk) 22:36, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
Okay, will try Incoming. And thanks for the info about SMW spinning too, I was wondering why that icon was there. Will look into it. --ete (talk) 00:39, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Fixed the spinning SMW problem, it turned out to be an issue with CloudFlare's RocketLoader, in case you run into that again somewhere. And I ended up doing a slightly simpler version of the template, but it's all working fine now. --ete (talk) 20:56, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Just browsed a bit and found out that this is indeed a problem with CloudFlare. Good to know. Great that the template now works for you. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 22:11, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

Arindal Wiki

Ah... You're right, it does seem to be just an html dump. My bad. --MarkAHershberger(talk) 19:52, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

No worries. All ok. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 21:18, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

Protect high traffic images

Shouldn't these images be upload-protected as they're used in quite a lot of places and would cause quite a bit of disruption if they're subject to upload vandalism?

also shouldn't Contact Us be in the projectspace rather than mainspace? --Nintendofan885T&Cs apply 12:44, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

I agree that the file needed to be updated to a newer version matching the new MediaWiki logo better. Even though I like the new version, thanks for this, the way this change was made available was however questionable. Thus I cannot blame others to have reverted to the original version. Anyhow I now edit protected these files. --[[kgh]] (talk) 14:45, 5 April 2021 (UTC) PS Indeed, the contact page is better placted in the project name space. Thanks for the pointer.

Regarding deletion

@Kghbln Hey! Why do you deleted all the Gyaanipedia wikis. You know I had added them with so much of efforts. If you look at Wikipedia's api then you will found that all the domains have so our site also have the api having domain its a common thing. Is this the reason that Wikipedia is a big company and we are smaller one that's why we are like insects? Rahul (talk)

You chose not to respond to my message. This is what happens. Perhaps I was an insect for you. I do not know. --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:21, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
@Kghbln It is very disappointing that in this 21st century also, you are following the VIP culture. I hope you know this, that one of the biggest reason why Titanic sank was the captain and crew members were busy in serving their VIP passengers rather than doing their job. Maybe Gyaanipedia is a planned target. May I know that why you deleted these wikis:
  • ज्ञानीपीडिया
  • জ্ঞানীপিডিয়া
  • گیانپیڈیا
  • ज्ञानीपीडिया (mr)
  • Gyaanipedia (ca)
  • Gyaanipedia (fr)
  • Gyaanipedia (es)
  • Gyaanipedia (de)
  • Gyaanipedia (pa)
  • ਗਿਆਨਪੀਡੀਆ

See now the world is rejecting us but believe me one day will come when we become so big that this same world will respect us. Rahul (talk)

I'm afraid that I do not really understand what you are talking about. I deleted all of them since you did not assist in identifying the duplicates you added. --[[kgh]] (talk) 07:43, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
@Kghbln Kindly restore these pages. These are not duplicate
Done. At the same time I moved to consistent naming. This Arabic wiki or what it was one of the duplicates, so I deleted again. --[[kgh]] (talk) 06:09, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

See also

Take a look here all these Wikipedia sites having same domain

so why don't you delete that? because Wikipedia is a prestigious website if I'm not wrong. Isn't it? Rahul (talk)

I do not understand this, I'm afraid. --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:21, 6 April 2021 (UTC)


Thank you very much for the corrections in «Hispanopedia» and «Vikidia».

I have not found a help page that allows me to understand the meaning of each parameter. I copied the model from a wiki and changed only what I could understand. Best regards.Hugo Ar (talk) 17:15, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

No worries. I only did minor tweaks. The help is provided via the info on the forms for editing pages. --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:12, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Deleting a duplicate page


Recently I created a duplicate of another wiki on the site (Original, Duplicate), I had looked the site up beforehand using the search bar, but nothing came up for me, so I wrongly assumed it hadn't been added yet, and added the page. How would I go about deleting it?

Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience,

--Coloradohusky (talk) 04:44, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

Search is not relly one of MediaWiki's best, indeed. Anyhow, this can happen from time to time. Thanks for the note. Just cleared it. --[[kgh]] (talk) 07:47, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

Bulk importing Wikis with logos?

Hey there Kgh, I haven't received a response anywhere else, so I thought I'd ask you - is it possible to bulk import wikis with logos? I have a list of around 47k Wikia wikis that all have logos, I asked about it here two weeks ago but have received no reply.


--Coloradohusky (talk) 03:04, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

You also asked here on wiki and I answered. Personally I do not like the idea to import Wikia to this wiki. Anyhow, I cannot be of help here. I am "just" attending to the wiki a bit as some sort of wiki gardener. --[[kgh]] (talk) 09:22, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

Ah, my bad, didn't get a notification that there was a response, for some reason. Thanks for the reply. --Coloradohusky (talk) 22:31, 13 June 2021 (UTC)


I would like to know if you could show Wikinezka's general statistics for historical reference even with it being defunct. When it is marked defunct, it cannot show up in any of the tags available and it cannot display the statistics that would've been present before its collapse. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 07:36, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

I suggest to take a screenshot of the data still there. I am not sure when they will be deleted. After that we can upload the file here and add it to the page. --[[kgh]] (talk) 13:22, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

Hey there!

I was wondering if you would feel comfortable granting me the editor user right? I'd really appreciate being able to move pages. My contributions thus far are available on my userpage. –MJLTalk 04:03, 11 July 2021 (UTC)

Why not. Done. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 07:46, 11 July 2021 (UTC)
