== About suppressed account ==
Hi MacFan4000. Today I came across [[User:Guy|an account]] that had been suppressed, and I can't quite understand why. In theory, this only applies to accounts with abusive usernames or personal information, and that name does not meet either of those criteria.

A humble request to add more user groups with slightly stricter requirements.

A few examples would be manually confirmed before administrator. Extended confirmed (after certain no. of edits and days registered), new page patroler, researcher etc. Thanks and if you may add any user group I'm ready to help. Bingobro (Chat) 11:26, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Abuse filters


I'm just letting you know that I've created two anti-vandalism abuse filters to prevent nonsense such as this. Feel free to tweak them if need be. Most of the code is from the English Wikipedia. Pillowfluffyhead (talk) 14:32, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Oversight request

Can you please oversight this user and his block? The nature of the username tells you why it needs to be oversighted. Joepayne (talk) 11:16, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

Please Respond to Community Portal

Hello Would you please respond to Test_Wiki:Community_portal#Why_this_strange_condition_while_asking_for_permissions and correct my response if i am wrong. Anoop/ಅನೂಪ್ . © 11:15, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi, I'm sorry...

I busy in realife so I can't much to monitoring this wiki, I also fun with this community so I can come back again with the task or stuff. I'm sorry Macfan... I can come back again in january maybe. Thanks :-( Mbrt (talk) 14:20, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Community portal uneditable

Why is the Community portal protect? It is supposed to be for all the community not user only. It says on Server that there is only one server, but on portal you say "backend", do you mean there is frotend also? -- 09:09, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
The backend is the code behind the site, the frontend is what the normal user woul see when visiting the site. MacFan4000 (talk) 12:34, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

Avoid excessive use of hideuser

Dear MacFan4000,

I have been on this wiki for a while and have seen hideuser used a lot on blocks. Unless there is a need, could you please unhide the blocks that were hideusered and make a policy which says hideuser is not to be used excessively. This is in the interests of maximum community transparency/accountability. Thank you for your cooperation

Joepayne (talk) 11:20, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

I used hideuser for abusive usernames that the public does not need to see. I try not to use it if I don't need to. MacFan4000 (talk) 14:32, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Are open proxies allowed on TestWiki? -- CptViraj (📧) 01:30, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

There is nothing that really prevents their use, but any proxy used to disrupt the wiki may be blocked immediately without warning. But then again, that can go with most other sources of disruption. -- Void Whispers 14:56, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi MacFan4000

Hi, are You sure that You want to block user:Seranida for vandalism? I've checked edits made from that account and I don't see any evidence for abusing other accounts. Best regards, Neonek12 (talk) 07:13, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

I did not ban for vandalism, I banned for abuse of multiple accounts, not just here but also on wmf and miraheze wikis. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 12:53, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
OK, I understand. Neonek12 (talk) 14:29, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

Interface administrator

Hi, I've just seen that You removed intadmin permissions from all accounts except Stewards. Was it done because of security reasons? Neonek12 (talk) 20:16, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

@Neonek12: We identified an issue where relatively new users who have became a crat could in theory insert malware into common.js. MacFan4000 decided to take IA away from non-stewards to prevent this. ImprovedWikiImprovment (talk) 20:44, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
@ImprovedWikiImprovment: Okay, but I assume that it would be still possible to self-grant this right to own account for limited time (like bot flag), for testing? Neonek12 (talk) 04:54, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
@Neonek12: Possibly. Just now you'd have to ask a steward. This is more of a question for MacFan4000. ImprovedWikiImprovment (talk) 15:30, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
@ImprovedWikiImprovment: Which I assume is why it's on their user talk page. Seemplez (talk) 19:37, 30 September 2020 (UTC)


Hello, I noticed some glitches you may want to have a look at. One is that if I look at someone's contributions like Special:Contributions/Example, I get an error "Namespaces with negative values are not supported" tho I can still see contributions when using the dropdown menu for search by namespace, even if I invert selection to search for all but one. Another glitch is that I can't see the difference between revisions when I click the cur or prev button when looking at history, instead I just see a blank page, and IDK how to patrol the edits if that doesn't work. Also patrol button is missing right now for the new page Main_Page/zh-tw. Anyway could be the software update, or else I messed something up in my preferences, thought you should know. Fast - ZoomZoom (talk) 16:32, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

I have the same problem and did not find anything else about this error than this comment. Is there any solution for now?

CU Request

I am requesting CU as I have reason to believe that user JJPMaster is a sock of User:WEWILLNOTMOVETOARIZONA. He is confrontational (see my talk, he referred to my adding a script as "idea theft"), and requested permissions here, and as soon as he got them requested permissions on Miraheze Test Wiki. He also requested a wiki on Meta on Miraheze right after that. Hope you'll look into this. Thanks! BlackWidowMovie0 (talk) 19:42, 8 December 2020 (UTC)

There is no evidence to suggest that the user is operating multiple accounts. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 19:46, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
@MacFan4000: Ok, I'll unblock him. I was being careful, as he had multiple sock-type signs. BlackWidowMovie0 (talk) 19:48, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
@BlackWidowMovie0: I would like to add my opinion here. I requested a wiki on Miraheze because I made a wiki that got deleted in April, and I wanted to restore it. I jokingly referred to your use of my idea as "idea theft." Also, why that user specifically? JJPMaster (talk) 16:54, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

Requests for steward assistance

When you have time I'd appreciate it if you could assist with the issues below.

Requests for CheckUser

  • A number of linked spambots, as can be seen on Special:AbuseLog, are attempting to post similar junk about jerseys. May be worth checking to see if a rangeblock on the underlying IPs is possible without causing too much collateral damage.

Edit requests

  • Main Page has a stray comma that should be removed; says "Test Wiki, is a place" should just be "Test Wiki is a place" admittedly a minor error, but worth fixing.

Thanks for your help. Best, Fast - ZoomZoom (talk) 23:24, 27 December 2020 (UTC)

  • There is no correlation to other accounts for either user.
  • @Void: is better at Range blocks then I am. He would be the user to ask.
  • The edits are done

Rename request

Hello MacFan, will you please rename me to "Olipino". It will be very helpful. Thanks! Hulged (talk) 06:13, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
