Request feature at this spot

Hi please view for the feature request thanks. Paladox2014 (talk) 23:59, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Heiya Paladox, thanks for the note. I answered over there. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 10:03, 11 February 2015 (UTC)


Sorry for my mistakes. I'll try to be more careful. PiRSquared (talk) 22:02, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

No probs at all. You just started out here and it is great that you get involved. Cool that you dug out all these new wikis! --[[kgh]] (talk) 22:24, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Adding a farm

Could you please add all of these? I'm not sure what the best practice is for cases with a "host" having a "farm" or whatever the terminology is. Does the bot detect this automatically? PiRSquared (talk) 03:15, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Usually I do this manually in case it is this tiny. Probably preparing import data takes as much time as doing it here directly. Dunno if Thinges has currently the time for this. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 09:06, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Issues with user page

P.S. are you aware that your userpage gives a 500 Internal Server Error and a blank page when viewing (although viewing source/editing is OK)? PiRSquared (talk) 03:25, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, probably a Babel incompatibility issue. I have already opened an issue for this on GitHub. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 09:07, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Rename user name

Hi could you rename my user name from paladox2014 to paladox please. Paladox2014 (talk) 13:38, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi, actually I cannot since I am not a crat on this wiki. You should ask Thingles. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 14:24, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
After too long of a delay this is now done. 🐝 thingles (talk) 14:00, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
Also fixed User:Kghbln not being a 'crat. 🐝 thingles (talk) 14:03, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
I continue to spread. ;) Thanks you for the trust! Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 19:08, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

504 timeouts

Some pages on WikiApiary consistently give me 504s while other pages load fine. Is this just me or a temporary site problem? I just want to edit their internet archive details (wiki's i've backed up/uploaded to IA). examples of consistent 504 pages:

been happening at least 3 days (19 may onwards) thx! Greg.wallace1 (talk) 13:40, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

No, that's not just you. This happens to me occasionally too. Luckily in connection with saving a page the edit gets saved before the timeout like e.g. on "Pattern Repository Wiki". Coming back to the same wiki a couple of days later helps avoiding this. Since this is a privately funded site I tend to accept this. --[[kgh]] (talk) 14:18, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Hmm… I wasn't aware of this. Looking in the logs I see there were 254 504 errors today. I'll see if there is something easy that may help this. Please feel free to ping me on my talk page on this, or the WikiApiary-l mailing list. 🐝 thingles (talk) 03:09, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Data not updating

Hello again, the page for Coasterpedia isn't updating. I recently moved webhost which may have messed things up. Can you fix this or have I broken something?

Thanks, Lachlan Coasterpedia (talk) 19:20, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

The issue are timeouts for the bot collection the data, meaning the wiki needs to much time to respond to the data requests. The API-URL as such is correct and when accessing the URL results are provided properly. There is probably something in the water with the new setup (DNS, server or wiki) but I do not know what it is. I have seen this happen sometimes with other wikis too but was not able to help the cause either. :( --[[kgh]] (talk) 07:05, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for deleting my mistaken submission

I should have checked more carefully to see if it wasn't using MediaWiki. You should probably also delete the logo I uploaded: File:Ovalkwiki_logo.png. JesseW (talk) 22:55, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for reminding me. Ovalwiki could however go to which is not restricted to the MediaWiki engine. --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:46, 20 July 2015 (UTC) PS Before I forget: Thank you for adding wikis to WikiApiary.

Delete old websites

Hello Kghbln,

as I am not an admin, I cannot delete pages/websites. These websites are old versions, though and could do with a deletion!

These two can stay:

Would be super! ––Zabien (talk) 08:28, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Hello Zabien, usually we just mark wikis as defunct gone which I recommend here to. These three were wikis once and were part of the wikiverse. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:42, 17 August 2015 (UTC)


Site was down because it was compromised. Not since, I think :P — revi 08:44, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

I do not understand your note and your comment now. However I dunno what is happening there. Seems to be a pretty mess and the sites are currently inaccessible. --[[kgh]] (talk) 09:06, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Uploading files from URL

Also, I have no idea why I can't upload_by_url while I am "Autoconfirmed users"... — revi 08:49, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

That's broken for over have a year now minimum. I have not got around filing a bug report. :| I think this is an issue with Semantic Forms, though I am not sure. --[[kgh]] (talk) 09:06, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
I thought upload_by_url was also possible with UploadWizard.. Thanks. By the way, is it possible to move the page? It seems that I cannot move the pages.... — revi 12:52, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, regular users cannot move pages. Which one should be moved to where? --[[kgh]] (talk) 16:22, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

French translation for interface


I started to translate the main_page, but I wonder how to translate forms and WikiApiary:About ?

Ty, tuxun

Salut tuxun, first of all thank you for doing the French translations.! Secondly: good point, I just marked the "About" page for translation. :) To translate forms and alike is currently not possible due to a bug that needs to be fixed first. A plus Karsten
Hi, I thing than we could copie them, then translate these copies. linking to french thing in french thing will do the tricks. Au revoir :)
This does not work since we then would have two forms for e.g. the same category. Additionally all future chances to forms, templates etc. would have to be adapted multi-fold. --[[kgh]] (talk) 12:13, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Renaming wikis

I somehow cannot save the renaming section.... With db error.

Completely forgot about that... Oriwiki to 오리위키 and Libre Wiki to 리브레 위키. Thanks! — revi 18:13, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Probably that nasty array-thingy issue. I think there is a fix in the pipeline or already committed. Moved the pages. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 21:54, 12 October 2015 (UTC)


Can you delete 위키쨩 2? I created this by mistake, and when I try to edit this and put delete, I get DB error as explained here. — revi 06:34, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

Done. --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:57, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

Move requests

--Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 06:42, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for addressing this here. --[[kgh]] (talk) 19:26, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Few requests


Thank you! — revi 13:27, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Done, except for Thaumic Drive Wiki which is even active. Some rationale behind it? --[[kgh]] (talk) 19:37, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
See the history; it's duplicate. :-) — revi 22:54, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Got it. :) --[[kgh]] (talk) 23:41, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

New one: TPRG 한국어 Wiki to be renamed to TRPG 한국어 Wiki. It's my typo. — revi 16:57, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Done. --[[kgh]] (talk) 18:15, 8 November 2015 (UTC)


I founded Wikinfo but have no exact date or time. July 2003 is the right date. Fred Bauder (talk) 18:31, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Indeed, according to the revision history of your main page. :) A nice traditional wiki. Thanks for updating its information here. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 20:45, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
