Can't seem to sign up[edit]

Hey there. Sorry to bother you, but you were the first active administrator I saw.

I've been trying to create an account for awhile but I keep getting this error message "Failed to connect to smtp.mandrillapp.com:587 [SMTP: Failed to connect socket: Connection refused (code: -1, response: )]". I've tried using multiple devices but it keeps up. Any idea how I can fix that and create my account? Or are accounts unable to be created nowadays? Thanks in advanced.

Here's my email if that's needed: Mastermawile@Yahoo.com 71.71.54.95 12:54, 20 January 2018 (PST)

Hello, and thanks for reaching out. Can you please confirm that you are using Special:RequestAccount in order to create a user account here on WikiIndex? All sections need to be completed, and crucially, a valid and functional e-mail address is required. Should any e-mail not be valid, the registration process will fail. I see you are using a Yahoo account - whilst we have had some successful Yahoo registrations, I am aware that Yahoo accounts can be auto-blocked. This is common throughout many differing internet sites, and is not unique to WikiIndex. Perhaps you could consider a Gmail account, as these always validate successfully. I would also like to advise that we still allow both editing of existing articles and creation of new articles as an IP editor (without creating an account). Please let me know if you require further assistance. Best regards. Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmin / 'Crattalk2HH 13:10, 20 January 2018 (PST)
Thanks for replying. Sorry or the lack of details on my end.
-Yes, I used Special:RequestAccount on both my laptop and mobile device with the same error.
-All sections were completely and filled out. I didn't get the same error message wen I missed a field, so those weren't the issue.
-I tried using both my Yahoo and Gmail email, to no avail.
I suppose I'll just edit as an anon for now, I'll try to make an account in a week or so. Again, thanks for the help, I appreciate it.71.71.54.95 13:40, 21 January 2018 (PST)

IRC[edit]

Sorry, was sleeping when you messaged me. But hi :) --YiFei | talk 21:44, 5 July 2018 (PDT)

No problem - we all need to sleep! I miss your expertise here, wish you could find time for us.  :-) --Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmin / 'Crattalk2HH 02:25, 6 July 2018 (PDT)
Now I'm mostly doing tech stuffs over at Wikimedia. Anything buggy here? --YiFei | talk 23:29, 6 July 2018 (PDT)

Hey[edit]

Almost all of my wikis were lost in a burglary.

So what category should pages like Kings Wiki (en) go in? Dead, I guess? Leucosticte (talk) 18:09, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

Well that is a dire situation. Any unwelcome 'guests' who do that kind of thing are just low-life - they don't have the balls to air their disagreements with you personally, but take the chickens way of trashing you, and your elderly and infirm parents. Please make sure you update your home security. Maybe get consider getting a Rottweiler or two! They are incredibly loyal, and soft towards their owners, but can be highly effective at inflicting serious pain on intruders!
As for your wikis, I am guessing you didn't backup their databases? Have you checked Archive.org and / or archive.is? It looks like Dead is the most appropriate.
Stay safe, best. Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmin / 'Crattalk2HH 20:27, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, this is kind of an epochal change; Nathania was originally created in 2012, and countless hours were spent adding content to it over the years; and we are now basically in the post-Nathania era.
There's now not really anything left for anyone to try to steal or sabotage in the house (and if there were, they might still be hesitant to do so, since I'm now on the alert that people are willing to go to those lengths). They pretty much accomplished what seems to have been their goal, which was to get rid of my sites, or otherwise set me back, or silence me. These days, I just post on obscure forums.
My backups existed on physical drives that were taken. I might have some really old versions of some databases on other drives that are lying around, but I don't know if I want to bother with it at this point. I've been having trouble finding a good free speech webhost now that I've been kicked off of DreamHost. Leucosticte (talk) 09:01, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

i requesting a account[edit]

hello, i want to create/request account, but i cannot, please can you help me please, but i do not want personal biography, and here is the details i want in my account:

  • username: psl85
  • email to send details and password: lenasundfors66@gmail.com
  • real name: philip
  • i have read and understand Wikiindex:Terms of Service? Yes
  • Other things: I would use the "monobook" skin instead of the "vector" skin, default items to show by default in recent changes, histories, and logs: 200, and i want to use the old classic edit toolbar instead of the enhanced, and please notify me on my IPs talk page while this is done.

Please can you create that account? 46.227.72.94 11:24, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Can you tell me why Special:RequestAccount isn't an option for you? Koavf (talk) 23:11, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
Koavf – there are major errors / problems with our software installation. I raised the issue here over a month ago.
46.227.72.94 – we do require a small level of vetting, hence the need for a brief biography when requesting an account. Can you please advise what other wikis you are active on, and your reasons for wanting to join WikiIndex? Thanks. Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmin / 'Crattalk2HH 23:22, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
The Special:RequestAccount page requires a personal biography, I do not want to add one, and I would use account to edit instead of IP, because I want to use the monobook skin instead of Vector skin, and the enhanced toolbar want I not to use and instead use the old classic toolbar, and if the biography is required, please briefly describe it, is it ok? 46.227.72.94 16:34, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
i used the request account page, but get error while try to submit the request, please can you create the account for me please? -46.227.72.94
You are globally blocked on ALL Wikimedia Foundation wikis for "cross-wiki abuse" - TWICE. You have pestered to overturn your block! You clearly do not respect established principles of good wiki behaviour, and you have failed to provide perfectly reasonable requested information. Why should we at WikiIndex create an account for you? Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmin / 'Crattalk2HH 13:10, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
Here on the WikiIndex, while reading, I would use the monobook skin instead of the vector, and use old editing toolbar instead of the beta enhanced, and also use css to customize instead of default settings, this is the reason for i want account here, please, hoof harted -46.227.72.94
The global ban was made by the stupid user called "sv:user:tegel", from sv wikipedia, and while he blocked me first time hate I him. i try to not vandalize here and not write nonsense/junk, or i will be banned here, -- 46.227.72.94 14:56, 29 August 2018 (UTC)

Technical problem[edit]

Please have a look here: Wiki Status - Topic "Technical problem" --5.83.136.21 22:24, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Great suggestion, answered at Category talk:Wiki Status#Technical problem. Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmin / 'Crattalk2HH 13:50, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
Have another look there for an additional suggestion. --5.83.136.21 00:10, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Site Down[edit]

Sorry for the interruption, I think we got it sorted Raymond King | talk

Thanks Ray, do we know what caused it? Sean, aka Hoof HeartedAdmin / 'Crattalk2HH 20:46, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
There was a missing database table, so we think either a plug in was installed or a function was used for a prior plug in which required that table. So we created the table and that should take care of it. We don't have a clearer explanation unfortunately. Raymond King | talk
