Edit access[edit source]

Hi! I'd like to have anonymous editing disabled on this wiki. Thank you. Zwo Zateki (talk) 20:08, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Done :).--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 20:42, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Widget[edit source]

  • I posted this on my talk page as a reply but then I realized you might not notice it there so: Yes, I still REALLY want that widget. This is the wiki in question. Do you know which widget I want? I can give you the link if you need. Thanks. Busey.pngoddguyBusey.png 09:47, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
Hey I've installed it on your site. You should be able to add the widgets you want yourself. mw:Extension:Widgets should give you more information.--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 17:45, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Thank you, works perfectly. Busey.pngoddguyBusey.png 20:12, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Header on top of all staff talk pages[edit source]

I think more people would use the forums if something like this header were used on all staff talk pages:

A good thing about getting more discussions and solutions onto the forums is that the forums are searchable as a namespace. So people can search for previous discussions about their particular problem or question.

The many discussions on the many staff talk pages and talk archives are essentially lost to quick access from one search point. All that knowledge hidden away. One could search talk page by talk page, but who is going to do that?

--Timeshifter (talk) 23:03, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Many questions people have aren't for the forums - they're about individual account or wiki matters. Forums are for community discussion, and the community aren't going to have much say or care whether this wiki can have this extension enabled (though these discussions should really go through Special:Contact or Bugzilla). Sure there are things that end up on our pages which are more community centric, and maybe in the future one could direct these discussions to the forums.
As for previous discussions, as like any page and namespace, user talk is searchable - admittedly not be default but neither is the forum namespace, and personally when I want to include results from another namespace other than main, I just select to search all, which I imagine many people would do when looking for help as it would then cover the help pages, forum pages, talk pages, e.t.c. --Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 15:14, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
Not every reader is familiar with the advanced search features of Special:Search. It takes around 5 steps to search all the namespaces. And the results can often be less than satisfying. Stuff found in talk space can be just snippets of info scattered around in topics of all kinds. Stuff found in help pages and forums is usually more focused, and more in depth. --Timeshifter (talk) 01:03, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Hey.[edit source]

I suggested some new languages for my wiki on the forum post that you replied to yesterday that is located here. I'll be happy to contribute to those wikis of my non-native languages once they're going to be set up! Pyro Newman (talk) 01:47, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Replied on the forum :)--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 22:53, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Noromor[edit source]

I see you deleted that as out of project scope. I was going to tag that for deletion but then I noticed it said it was a 'wiki', and it seems there is actually a, created a few days ago by the creator of the Noromor page as you can see here. I think Noromor was just an incorrectly formatted wiki article and should probably be restored and possibly be changed to use the wiki template. Llwy-ar-lawr (talk) 00:46, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I will give my opinion, to see if I can help: Wikis, because if not removed, wikis, always have to have some reason to shut.

I created that closed wikis, can not reabrirase): Thanks in advance.--Libros (talk) 17:11, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

That's probably true, and I'll reinstate it if the user asks. We could probably do with adding a note about formatting at the top of every page - I shall add it to my to-do list.--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 23:43, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Templates[edit source]

Hi Lynton, wanted to ask if there are templates in the wiki ... Thanks in advance--Libros (talk) 18:05, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

This isn't Lynton's talk page ;). Anyway, we have help pages to create both infoboxes and navboxes - I guess that's what you're looking for.--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 23:47, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Thank you!--Libros (talk) 19:21, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, this wiki's administrators? If so, I can be an administrator for this wiki? (shout wiki hub of this wiki) Thanks in advance.--Libros (talk) 17:52, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Would you modify my wiki?[edit source]

I'd like you to three works.

1. I'd like you to exchange all interwiki to English site for Japanese site or give me permission to edit interwiki. I'm having difficulty in setting of my site's interwiki. Because the interwiki is set to English sites.

For example:


So I'd like to revise the interwiki to Japanese sites. but, only you have permission to edit interwiki.
therefore I'd like you to do so.

2. I'd like you to add blacklist extention to my wiki and ShoutWiki's wiki which is created in the future. I think blacklist extention is a very useful extention.
because, some vandalists avoid creation protection. so they create page of similar title.

If they did so really, stopping they from raiding would becomes harder.
therefore I'd like you to do so.

3. I'd like you to add Forum(Japanese:討論) namespace to my wiki. My wiki is public wiki. so sometimes, they happen: dispute, problem and etc...
I need to a namespace to talk for them.
therefore I'd like you to do so.

P.S. I tryed to send e-mail as for mentioned above content to you. but, because of bug, I couldn't.

Truly yours,

--Carp-Marisa(鯉色マッリ) - talk 10:10, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

--edited Carp-Marisa(鯉色マッリ) - talk 12:19, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

1 - to edit mediawiki , you must be : Staff / administrator / bureaucrat of the wiki.
If you have trouble , report it to the staff, or me and I reported it to the staff.
3 - The Vandals / users to do problems , can block.And forum , if used to combat vandalism, etcc ... I recommend that :if you have administrator rights , block and / or report .
Hope that helped , if you have problems , you can tell me to my staff and reported to an email to staff.--Libros (talk) 13:46, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
Hi Carp-Marisa,
1) InterWiki's are global - that means that every ShoutWiki site uses the same set, hence why only staff can change them. Hence, I also can't change wikipedia or wikiquote. However, I have created ja.wikipedia and ja.wikiquote for you.
2 & 3) I'm gonna need the domain of your wiki before I can do either of these.--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 16:14, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I forgot to tell you my wiki. it is this.
Also, I'd like you to add some interwiki, jawp($1), jawb($1), uncyclopedia($1), jaucp($1) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 鯉色マッリ (talkcontribs) myself, Carp-Marisa(鯉色マッリ) - talk 10:03, 1 April 2014 (UTC). Please sign your posts with --~~~~!
Ok so firstly I removed the original ja.wikipedia and ja.wikiquote interlinks - these can be reached through wikipedia:ja and wikiquote:ja. For jawp use wikipedia:ja, for jawb use wikibooks:ja, for uncyclopedia use wikia:uncyclopedia and for jaucp use uncyclopedia:ja.
I've added both TitleBlacklist and DPLforum to your site.
Best regards, --Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 00:48, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

Problems with the Templates[edit source]

Hi Cook, Thanks a lot for the help on Jack's talk page and the fix! Pardon me for my ignorance, but how do I manually add Templates? Do you have a link explaining what I should do to fix this by hand so that I can do it by myself. Now I got the following error message: Template:HeaderTemplate and Template:SectionTemplate. Still two more to go :)

I am also pasting the message which reports the problem below, and hopefully, this time it will be easier to read ^__^

Hi, Jack. I tried to create a new wiki page ( last week, when it was almost done, I experienced a server error message, and then I tried to refresh the page the wiki page was only partially created. I can access the domain name but it does not even have a standard main page. Would you please help me to recover this, or simply delete everything and let me create it again from scratch. Thanks.
Hi, Jack. Thanks for the reply. I cannot remember the error message, but I got the impression that at least some templates were not created properly. What I do remember at this point was that I did use most of default options and, everything was normal until I press the "button" to "create the wiki" which delays a bit when all the files are created on the server (as I understand). I think some templates went wrong since now when I tried to copy the content of a default main page (from another shoutwiki page) (, I got the error message Template:MainTemplate . This is because, as I understand, the page invokes in the first place a template MainTemplate which is not installed/created properly. Would you please check it out. Many thanks and best regards.
Hi Gamebm, I'm not sure whether you failed to import the content, or that there was a server error (though if so, we haven't had any similar reports from other users). Either way, I added the Template:MainTemplate from the starter wiki. If you find any other templates you need that are missing, either let me know or get them from the starter wiki yourself, found at s:w:starter.--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 23:51, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Many thanks in advance.

--Gamebm (talk) 10:29, 26 April 2014 (UTC) --EditedGamebm (talk) 10:36, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I am sorry to interrupt, but this one is the same mistake, which you put, in Jack's discussion. What I it created, is that something, ::when you created the wiki, went out badly. The userbox of languages, are easy to create, I suggest you to try creating a userbox of language ::and to bring if it went out well or went out badly. The better thing is that the staff, it checks that the this wiki with good preferences. ::Because, probable mas (according to my opinion), is that someone of the caracteristacas of the wiki, they are bad.Thanks in advance.--Libros (talk) 16:14, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi Gamebm,
You can make templates just like any other page! Just start the page with "Template:". More details about Templates can be found at Help:Templates.
Best regards,
--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 17:53, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the help! Now I created those pages by simply copying and pasting, however I am still getting the same error messages as before when I tried to refreshing the page ( When clicking those links, you can see the content of those Template page, except that they are shown by their names in red in the page where the Templates are invoked. --Gamebm (talk) 18:29, 28 April 2014 (UTC) --Edited Gamebm (talk) 19:15, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi Gamebm,
All seems good now - probably just the cache, either on your end or the server. Let me know if you have any more issues. :)
Best regards,
--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 22:40, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi Cook,
Yes, they are working now, should have been more patient. I have two more questions. (1) The figure on the up-left corner of the main page is still missing. How do I update that? (2) How do I delete a page? I can clean up all its content, but the empty page still stays there. Thanks a lot! --Gamebm (talk) 01:12, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
1) Will be the site's logo, which can be changed by uploading a new file to this page. 2) The delete button is the fifth one in the row above the page. If you still can't find it, you can also press alt-shift-d.
Best regards,
--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 11:29, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
Thx!--Gamebm (talk) 23:45, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Cook, said to you, Gamebm, that he believes that already it will not have mas problems, but I, before reading this message, hize the checking, with one the insole Template:MainTemplate (in my user's page, because the front page, protected this one) and it did not go out. I suppose, for that still not this one 100 % arranged, I hope that he fixes the problem up. I suggest, that the staff, another comprovación should do to the wiki, to seeing if everything went out well when I believe the wiki. I ask you please, that respondaís the message that I have put (if it you is possible).--Libros (talk) 16:04, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Page[edit source]

Hello, I come to ask you, if it is possible to do this one pagina:http: //, in this wiki, and in another language that is not an Englishman. In case one could not, might you erase it? Thanks in advance--Libros (talk) 15:59, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Vandalism in page[edit source]

Hello, 1 Vandal one (I am sure that it is only, because his IP address changes, but not for ranges, sinó that changes it with a program that surely he arranges in his computer.) there is vandalizado the page of Jack Phoenix's discussion and they are different IP'S, not for ranges, because the range is different, sinó because they are programmed by the computer of the user, this already goes from bad to worse, because, when the users, undo the editions, it returns to vandalizar. The content that it has put till now, for vandaliar is " Very nice site " or something like that, then, I ask for help him with this, because this one Problem, already multiplying this one (I want décir, that the vandalism repeating itself) and I ask for a checkup him to the IP'S that exist vandalizado, to see if my suspicions are true (my suspicions they are that it treats itself of same it presents, only that programming in the computer multiple IP'S) or that treats itself about another person. In this case, I ask for a solution him, I suggest him: 1-In the case of which my suspicions are accepted, so, would be necessary to go blocking the IP'S while they continue appearing, because in another wiki, I pass that a blocked IP, he said to me that IP and I was programming I suppose that he programmes them with his computer, there must be programs like that. Also I ask you, that pìense another solution, if the mia does not prove (I it created that if, that there will be another solution). 2-En the case of which they are different persons, also I ask you to think a solution and I think the same one that in the first case.Thanks in advance--Libros (talk) 07:00, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Some questions[edit source]

Hi Cook, I just have a couple questions concerning bots and code that you might be able to answer.

  1. First of all, do you know if there's any way to change the text color on the diff pages on the dark blue theme? For example, this diff page (looking at it with the monobook skin), has some less than favorable (near-eyesore, honestly) text colors, especially for text that wasn't changed. The theme works well with the topic of the wiki, so I don't want to change that, but the diff pages just don't look great.
  2. Second, can you think of any reason why an account that I gave bot rights (s:w:grisaia:Special:Contributions/GrisaiaWikiBot) are showing up in RecentChanges? I don't have anything set in my preferences allowing me to see them normally, and other people are seeing them too. Is this just a minor oversight on SW's end?

Thanks in advance, Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 04:25, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Schiffy,
  1. is a bug - I have exams over the next few days but will fix it up sometime this week.
  2. Might be a cache issue. Try logging out of the bot account and logging back in again. If this doesn't work let me know.
Best regards,
--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 19:56, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks on the first one, and you were right. I just closed and re-opened AWB, the edits were being marked as bot edits after that. Thanks. Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 22:44, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Schiffy - Just to let you know the fix for one has been committed to our server and should be rolled out within the next few days, probably alongside the MediaWiki 1.23 update. Best regards,--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 11:48, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello[edit source]

Hello, cook, to say to me, since I believe a bot? And answer me,please , the previous message?Thanks in advance--Libros (talk) 10:32, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Hey Libros - as far as I'm aware the issue was dealt with soon after you reported it, though your original message was a bit confusing so let me know if I'm wrong.--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 21:09, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Administrator[edit source]

Hello. I would like to have the admin flag to do maintenance. Can you give me the flag, please? Dragneel (talk) 20:47, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello, Dragneel. I am sorry, to say to you, that when pedi, the position of administrator, in the same wiki, they said to me, that the administration, current of this wiki, was, correctly, and I believe, that you diran the same thing. I am sorry to have to say this to you. For if not me cres, in my contributions, this one and in the page of Jack Phoenix's discussion, also. Thank in advance--Libros (talk) 17:15, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit source]

Is it possible to create a new user group, which all new users are added to, that excludes them from editing the main namespace? I want to be able to have people submit examples of their work before being allowed to assist on the collaborative projects. --Citrakayah (talk) 00:35, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

I can certainly restrict access, though instead of adding all new users to a new group you'd add the users who you want to edit the main namespace to the new group. What's your wiki and what do you want the group of users who can edit the main namespace to be called?--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 00:41, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
Saecula Novae. The new group should be called Collaborators. --Citrakayah (talk) 04:16, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
That should be set up - let me know if you spot any issues.
Best regards,
--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 17:52, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
Can't change the collaborator user group. --Citrakayah (talk) 23:57, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
Whoops - always forget that part. Fixed :) --Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 01:38, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Request[edit source]

Karu (talk) 12:50, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Request for adding extensions and namespaces[edit source]

Hi Cook879,
I want you to add some extensions and namespaces to my wiki. would you add them?

  1. About extensions, my wiki needs WikiEditor and Abusefilter extension because my wiki editors think badly about editing environment and my wiki suffers from vandalist often.
  2. About namespaces, my wiki needs five namespaces: "資料", "ニュース", "図書", "ファーム" and "画像集". they mean "Database", "News", "Books", "Farm" and "Galleries".
    In addition, I want you to add these alias to the namespaces with $wgNamespaceAliases.
    • 資料→"Database", "Databases", "Source", "Sources", "DB"
    • ニュース→"News"
    • 図書→"Book", "Books"
    • ファーム→"Farm", "Farms", "Incubator"
    • 画像集→"Gallery", "Galleries"

(That's same as sentence what was written in Jack Phoenix's talkpage. possibly that may already be done by him.)

why the newly created wiki has not came automatically into the List_of_wikis[edit source]


There is a category Category:Українська in ShoutWiki Central hub . As far as I understand, when creating a wiki with the prefix of UK (Ukrainian), this wiki should automatically fall into this category. Accordingly, when referring to Category:Wikis_by_language and select language Ukrainian anyone can find all the wiki, with the prefix of UK. Why that does not happen? This system error?

I wonder why the newly created wiki COD has not came automatically into the list With that, she's not in the list by categories (Category:Gaming -, nor in the list of languages (Ukrainian -Українська)

article on ShoutWiki proposed for deletion[edit source]

I bring to your attention that the article on ShoutWiki, that I wrote in Ukrainian Wikipedia proposed for deletion. The reason is very simple. The administration had examined the link that exists online at ShoutWiki, and just did not find them in sufficient quantity. From this fact the conclusion that the article does not meet the criteria of significance of Wikipedia.

Write about your hosting more and more often. Let him write active users. Even the newest blog post was dated 2012.

Vandalism/Personal Attack[edit source]

I was removed that offensive context from my page. And Summary is: Removing Offensive Sexual context/ Personal Attack made by just random fool.

I afraid that he will be back and add it again. I'm request you block all IP Adresses. I wish only registered users can edit Wiki. (Matthew Bowyer Fan (talk) 19:12, 29 November 2015 (UTC))

Check-User[edit source]

What is check-user extension, and this extension, what verify exaclly? Please, answer. In wikia, is possible the verifications of other information (NOT ONLY THE PROTCOL INTERNET OR IP), exist other extensions of the verify of the multiaccounts? Thanks. --Pastelerohelper92 (talk) 11:52, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

You can find a full account of what CheckUser does over on the official MediaWiki page. It does aid in the detection of multiple accounts, yes, with the IP address being the key part of it. Hope this helps. --Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 00:30, 16 April 2016 (UTC)
OK, but my question is this: User A edit with the IP 111.222.333.444 and is blocked for vandalism and he create another account, but with the IP 555.666.777.888, is possible verify accounts with other IP, but sockpuppets? --Pastelerohelper92 (talk) 07:30, 16 April 2016 (UTC)
So if he has two different IPs? No - they can only be connected if they use the same IP at some point. --Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 12:22, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Delete My Wikis[edit source]

Hi, this is Gazlene the Pork Girl. I re-registered because I was told that if I want to change my username, I have to re-register. Anyway, is it okay if you delete my wikis I made in the past (e.g. Mariopedia, Invader Zim Wiki, etc.)? I don't use them any longer. I can verify that it's me asking this if you'd like. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gaz (talkcontribs) 22:01, 23 August 2016‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with --~~~~!

Hi Gaz, verification would be required. Also, I need you to give me the domains of each site you want deleted as confirmation.

Two new user groups on my wiki?[edit source]

Hey Cook, I was wondering if my wiki could have two additional user groups. Junior Administrator and Autopatrolled. The reason being is: I want trustworthy users that are not yet ready to become full administrators but more trusted than the rollbacks. Autopatrolled because I don't want to patrol the users' edits of the ones who know what they are doing.

#Junior Administrators
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['delete'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['undelete'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['deletedhistory'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['deletedtext'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['noratelimit'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['autopatrol'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['suppressredirect'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['autoconfirmed'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['editsemiprotected'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['editprotected'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['protect'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['patrol'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['patrolmarks'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['rollback'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['junioradmin']['movefile'] = true;

#Autopatrolled Users
$wgGroupPermissions['autopatrolled']['autopatrol'] = true;

Also, I would like User:Sassmaster15 to become a steward there with me since he passed his RfS, and I would like to know if Administrators can add/remove the rollback and autopatrolled user groups as well as having the capability of demoting themselves. I would also like bureaucrats and stewards being able to demote themselves too if possible. Junior Administrators I want to be added/removed by bureaucrats and stewards.

Thanks for your time.

--Hypercane (talk) 17:54, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

The junioradmin and autopatrolled is done.
Sassmaser15 is now a Steward
Admins should be able to add rollback and autopatrolled, and bureaucrats and stewards should be able to add junior admins - but please do check and let me know :)
The problem with demoting themselves, is that they will be able to demote other users of their user group. Is this what you want?
--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 23:00, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
Hi I want to be able to promote and demote bureaucrats, administrators, and bots too along with junior administrators and autopatrolled, and bureaucrats able to promote bureaucrats, administrators, junior administrators, autopatrolled and bots but only be able to demote administrators, junior administrators, autopatrolled, and bots. As for demoting ourselves I think I changed my mind. Sorry for not specifying this earlier --Hypercane (talk) 23:16, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
Done.--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 23:25, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
The ability of users to be able to remove themselves, but not others, from groups is something Wikia incorporated into their codebase at some point after they forked from MediaWiki. AFAIK it's an ability that exists only in Wikia's fork. It absolutely does not exist in the main codebase. --Saftzie (talk) 20:27, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
Well don't you guys have the ability to do:
$wgGroupsRemoveFromSelf['steward'] = array( 'steward' );

Done.--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 00:16, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

South Park Wiki[edit source]

Hi Cook, how is it? I've started a South Park Wiki 2 years ago, and I recently got into wikis again. I remember you said you'd import the revisions, to which I was worried of. I think I'm actually okay with that now because I really think there needs to be a South Park Wiki free from the clutches of Wikia--I already think that a majority of editors on there are middle school students, and for a show meant for mature audiences. So yeah, if you could import the data from South Park Archives ( to South Park Wiki, I'd be grateful for that thanks. It's easier for me to develop a wiki when the existing content gets imported there and then I can make changes as necessary. You do not have to import any of the articles listed under Special:AllPages. Castaway2000 (talk) 03:08, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

You can download the database dump yourself via Special:Statistics and then email it to ShoutWiki then they'll upload it to your wiki. This is MY book, and I'm gonna READ IT!!! 20:23, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
Cook will probably see this. I would not advise emailing a file of that size, it'll probably just get rejected automatically. Normally, you should just email this request after getting Wikia to generate the dump. --Lewis Cawte (talk) ShoutWiki Staff 22:03, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
Yep, get Wikia to update their dump, then ping me and I can import it. --Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 23:03, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
Okay, thank you guys. I actually forgot about Special:Statistics but I sent a request for database dump. Castaway2000 (talk) 00:39, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
Cook, the database dump is done. You can check the link above to see. Castaway2000 (talk) 01:31, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
I also forgot--did you want for me to ping you by email or by user talk page? I'm ready for you to import that wiki dump I linked above. Castaway2000 (talk) 03:43, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
This is a work-in-progress - a wiki of South Park's size takes a while to import all the content - you're currently sitting at 50,000 pages, with the Wikia site having 65,000, so it's most of the way through.--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 21:34, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, so does the articles take days to import? Castaway2000 (talk) 06:13, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
Hi - I believe it finished yesterday night. Let me know if there's any issues.--Cook879 ShoutWiki Staff talk 16:39, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
Hi Cook, all is going well with South Park Wiki. It's just a disaster with templates and categorization. I wanted to ask what you think of how I'm trying to style the wiki just like Wikisimpsons, seeing as I like that wiki's style. Are you ok with that? Castaway2000 (talk) 21:03, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Banjo-Kazooie Wiki[edit source]

Hi, apologies for importing another wiki (I really hope none of you guys mind) but I tried to import the articles to Banjo-Kazooie Wiki, and now the site cannot be accessed. Do you know how to fix this problem? Thanks. Castaway2000 (talk) 16:25, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

2MB limit[edit source]

How do we increase the filesize limit for Conker Wiki? there's some files i want to upload. I suggest maybe 5MB or 10MB? i also asked Lcawte about this. Castaway2000 (talk) 12:06, 23 July 2018 (UTC)

Cook is gone. --Saftzie (talk) 16:51, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
Ok, yeah i haven't seen his activity in a while. Is the 2MB limit to save on storage space? Castaway2000 (talk) 21:45, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
It's more about MediaWiki not being a file or image repository service. If you have a large file (or several), it's usually more efficient to upload them to a dedicated image-sharing site and embed them in your wiki pages. --Saftzie (talk) 20:38, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
Hello, I suggest a banner on Cook879 user page, "This user is no longer active for the moment", or something like that. It would be very useful. Does such banner template exist on Shouwki?

Regarding some old wikis of mine[edit source]

Hello Cook879. I just clicked on the non-English versions of my Chess Platforms wikis, and the links said that there were no such wikis. Do you know if they were affected by the hub shutdown? Also, may you please attempt to fix this? Pyro Newman (talk) 15:05, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Cook is no longer around as staff. I don't believe any wikis other than Hub were affected by the lock. Your wikis were probably deleted. --Saftzie (talk) 19:39, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
