Could we get Twinkle in here?

Hi all,

Hello, I am considering blocking a user due to a linked WikiMedia user being blocked, They refuse to respond when I ask whether or not they are linked. What do I do?

Can my name be changed?

How do you change your name?

Can bureaucrats change their own names here? I wanted to change to Seranida. Skiyomi Solace (talk) 22:53, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Just adding that I haven't been able to find the page to change my own name, could someone do it for me please? Skiyomi Solace (talk) 22:15, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
It would be Special:RenameUser, but it is restricted to stewards. You may however request a rename. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 12:08, 6 June 2020 (UTC)
I see. Then can I please request a rename to Seranida? Thank you! Skiyomi Solace (talk) 18:43, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

I wonder if one can checkuser him or herself here. Meta wiki, one of Wikimedia projects, says it can be done on test wiki. --DrizzleD-test (talk) 13:50, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Oh, I know now. Only bureaucrats can do it. --DrizzleD-test (talk) 14:15, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Case for Stewards

Page User:Qq808ms as a wiki page has been deleted. But problem hasn't been solved, because that user had inserted spam into own social profile. Only stewards are able to remove it. Neonek12 (talk) 19:05, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Hey, i need to change my name.

I need to change my name to DarkShadow please.

editsitecss/js restricted?

Hay, I noticed that bureaucrats can no longer add/remove the interface administrator group and that group has been removed from all users. The GitHub commit states that this was done to restrict editsitecss and editsitejs to sysadmins and stewards only. I would like to ask why this decision was made and what the reason behind it is as theas are permissions that an admin/'crat is likely to have on a real wiki and thus is useful to have on here for testing purposes. Also other test wikis still allow 'crats to have this permission, so I don't understand its being removed here. Also if you must restrict those rights, I would suggest removing them from interface admin then re-allowing add/remove of that group for 'crat. That way to group can still be used for testing and rare cases where and admin wants editinterface but not full bureaucrat. Thank you. Bonnedav (talk) 08:22, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

@MacFan4000 and Void: See question above. Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker (talk) 08:52, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
Just a bump incase this was not noticed. Thank you. Bonnedav (talk) 07:57, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@Bonnedav: As Naleksuh has done, you can request interface administrator at RfP. Seemplez (talk) 08:13, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

Test Blocking

Can I test blocking options here ?? How to do that ?? --Emad4ald (talk) 07:03, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

Hello Emad4ald, you must go to Special:Block/Example and then select the kind of block you want to do Fast - ZoomZoom (talk) 15:40, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

Test Wiki:Inactivity Policy

I'm not sure if I should edit one of the official policies of this wiki myself without asking here first, so: Does this line "A steward or sysadmin will be removed after a year of activity." means what it means or is here a mistake somewhere? Meiræ 18:42, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

@Meiræ: I’m not sure what you mean. It is correct; stewards and sysadmins will be removed after a year. --IWI (talk) 12:35, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
@ImprovedWikiImprovment: after a year of activity (as is stated in the policy) or inactivity? Meiræ 19:28, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
It is now fixed. Fast - ZoomZoom (talk) 15:46, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

Main Page error?

Instead of "Test Wiki, is" on the Main Page it should say "Test Wiki is", as it does on the engb Main Page. Seemplez (talk) 12:35, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

Yes it looks wrong, but IDK how to fix it. Fast - ZoomZoom (talk) 15:38, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
@Fast: I think editing is restricted to stewards, pinging @Void: and @MacFan4000: Seemplez (talk) 13:45, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
Yes, when someone fixes this typo, could the same person also out the links inside tvar tags? The way it is now, users without the necessary rights can't translate the two units that contain external links without going directly to the source page and clearing captcha. Which I didn't even realise until @Fast: told me that.
I also think that Main Page/ase should be deleted since it's not a translation but a copy of the English main page.
