Hello @Koavf: may we include you again in the Wikilivres' administrators? --Zephyrus (talk) 15:34, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

Paypal and Domain Registration

Hi @Koavf:, we have contributions from three of our users for the *new* domain name (which we no longer currently need). I think that should go to you as partial payment for the two years of you paid for. That way there is a sharing of that cost. If you agree, please let me know your paypal address and I will forward. Thanks! --Jeffmcneill (talk) 07:43, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

@Jeffmcneill: That's very honorable of you but not necessary. I'm actually discussing with the host now--this is the first time they've responded to me. (Ray owned several domains and a different one is up for renewal soon.) Let me see if we can sort out this domain once and for all. I haven't been active here because I've been busy in meatspace.

The bureaucrat & staff rights


OK. I've added you the bureaucrat & staff rights. The staff rigths add only the access to Special:SpamRegex on this wiki, nothing more.

I have no possibility to switch the checkuser user rights on. I suppose only Sysadmin can do it.

Welcome on the board again :) Electron   10:16, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Rama being welcomed back to Ayodhya. also shown him flying in the Pushpak Vimana, the celestial flying machine.

A "celestial flying machine" ought to suit your kind of work don't you think so? ;-) --Zephyrus (talk) 20:43, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

@Zephyrus: Beautiful. Thank you. Koavf (talk) 11:03, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

The new server means that various things are different:

  • There is a moderation extension to allow open registration. Because it is a single point of spam protection, pages do not need to protected, users should not be blocked, IP ranges are not blocked (including TOR and proxies), and spamregex is no longer a thing.
  • The staff user-right now does a whole bunch of stuff, all of which is included in either admin or crat except for being able to lock the database in emergency (Scram!!! on the sidebar). Both staff members also have access to the server backend in case of technical errors.
  • The checkuser extension is disabled in the backend so doesn't work by design, it can be switched on in case of emergency.
  • New users become autoconfirmed in 10 minutes and 1 edit, and cannot create pages until this happens. This is to stop a spambot flooding the moderation queue.
  • There are various new extensions, special character support, etc. Everything is slightly updated.

Also a bunch of images have not been imported from the previous server yet. Arthur (talk) 11:56, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Can these images come back? I'm afraid the text would have no meaning at all without them. --Zephyrus (talk) 13:55, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
Is this an acceptable source? --Zephyrus (talk) 16:28, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
Ye it is fine. Me and Arthur are still working on the images, I will be converting these specific ones into a different file format that isn't gif. Gif files don't play well with the thumbnail process. Jl22388 (talk) 17:26, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
Everything is back perfectly: I can't thank you enough! --Zephyrus (talk) 11:08, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
