You say that people can make articles for [[fork]]s of wikis.  That is what sturmkrieg.com would have to be.  They are a fork of the original Sturmkrieg project.  [[Sturmkrieg]] needs to be about the Sturmkrieg Empire wiki, because that is the original.  If Alex wants to create a historically revisionist version, he can do that.  You should know that he has been banned from a German website on the same topic for being sympathetic to the Red Army.  [[User:Sturmkrieger|Sturmkrieger]] ([[User talk:Sturmkrieger|talk]]) 08:40, 15 March 2013 (PDT)

The background for the Sturmkrieg Empire is the predecessor for sturmkrieg.com.  If we're relegated to sturmkrieg.tk, why should they get [[Sturmkrieg]] when they are in fact the fork?  Regardless, why should they get a title that implies that they are somehow the main Sturmkrieg.  The original background was the Sturmkrieg Empire, before Inquisitor Ehrenstein and Dondrekhan decided to turn it away from what it was supposed to be.  If I have to have to start an article with some sort of different name, it implies that they are somehow the actual version and displays preference to them.  [[User:Sturmkrieger|Sturmkrieger]] ([[User talk:Sturmkrieger|talk]]) 15:41, 15 March 2013 (PDT)

[[User:Arcane|Arcane]] ([[User talk:Arcane|talk]]) 17:49, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
 
::Why do we have a [[cross-namespace redirect]] of that sort? There's a difference between edit warring in general (a suitable topic for a mainspace page, [[edit war]]ring) and edit warring as practiced on WikiIndex (which would be the topic of a project namespace page on the subject, Project:Edit warring). I don't see why you view such an edit as disruption rather than permissible bold editing.
 
 
::But, even if WikiIndex does have some unusual accepted practice concerning cross-namespace redirects, I don't see why you are now making block warnings about my inadvertently deviating from that practice. You seem to be making a big deal about rather minor incidents lately. It strikes me as odd. I don't know why you worry so much, and feel a need to begin paving the way for such drastic action, when everything is mostly going fine here.

==Please unblock Sophie Wilder==
 
[[Special:Contributions/Sophie Wilder]] &ndash; The sysop who blocked Sophie Wilder is now gone, and you know as well as I do that opposing Leucosticte is neither "trolling" nor "harassment". There are rational reasons to be upset with Leucosticte's behavior; the block wasn't deserved, especially under the given excuse of "trolling/harassment". --[[User:Michaeldsuarez|Michaeldsuarez]] ([[User talk:Michaeldsuarez|talk]]) 14:24, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
:If I could reasonably guarantee they aren't going to try [[edit war]]ring for the sake of openly opposing a user they have made clear they plan to go to war against openly if they were unblocked, I would. I certainly sympathize with their motives, but without a way to contact them and discuss this issue, I cannot render a judgment as to the wisdom of your request at this time. [[User:Arcane|Arcane]] ([[User talk:Arcane|talk]]) 14:45, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
::Use your head: [[Special:Contributions/Sophie Wilder|Sophie Wilder is clearly a RationalWiki user]]. [http://rationalwiki.org/w/index.php?title=User:Sophie_Wilder&redirect=no That leads us to RationalWiki user "Bicycle Wheel"]. You have a RationalWiki account and can communicate with "Bicycle Wheel" there. --[[User:Michaeldsuarez|Michaeldsuarez]] ([[User talk:Michaeldsuarez|talk]]) 14:50, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
:::Michael, I would prefer not to import issues from here elsewhere if I can avoid it. I would be willing to unblock her to the point she can edit her talk page, and if you will inform her I did so, I'd be happy to start a dialogue with her. [[User:Arcane|Arcane]] ([[User talk:Arcane|talk]]) 18:34, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
Is it not possible to unblock [[User:Sophie Wilder]] in so far as she is allowed to edit her talk page in order to discuss this matter? I do not think a [[sysop]] from here should visit other wikis to "offer" unblocking discussion. The user wanting to be unblocked should come here and try his/her case. But from my previous experience from being blocked by [[User:Hoof Hearted]] I can tell that in my case he also blocked my talk page and absolutely everything, so that it was  impossible for me to even talk to the blocking sysop in any way, in clear contradiction to the blocking message. So, maybe You can check this details and lift some of the restrictions in order to make discussion possible. And if [[User:Michaeldsuarez|Michaeldsuarez]] still has the desire to support her case, he can inform her about the change. [[User:Manorainjan|Manorainjan]] ([[User talk:Manorainjan|talk]]) 17:02, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
:I could not change the settings for the block to allow just talk page editing only, so I did a temporary unblock so she can come here and plead her case, though this is provisional, based on what happens, and will be reinstated should what caused problems before happen or if our attempt at discussing things ends unsatisfactorily. [[User:Arcane|Arcane]] ([[User talk:Arcane|talk]]) 18:38, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
::I doubt there will be further disputes. Pretty much everything that Sophie would have wanted done, {{u|Koavf}} did, and those actions were upheld by community decision (or indecision). [[User:Leucosticte|Leucosticte]] ([[User talk:Leucosticte|talk]]) 19:34, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
 
https://www.MediaWiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgBlockAllowsUTEdit &ndash; You have to change the wiki's configurations to allow blocked users to use their [[talk page]]s. By default, blocked users can't use their talk pages. I hope that no one here blocked people while assuming that they could request to become unblocked on their talk pages when they actually can't. [https://WikiIndex.org/index.php?title=Template:Unblock&action=history Unfortunately, it looks like the people here have made that assumption]. Haven't you noticed that [[Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Unblock|nearly no one ever requests to be unblocked]]? If you're planning to keep the default configuration, then you keep to set expiration dates for blocks, since users can only speak once they're unblocked again. Unless you change the configurations, then infinite blocks should be done away with. --[[User:Michaeldsuarez|Michaeldsuarez]] ([[User talk:Michaeldsuarez|talk]]) 20:21, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
:You make a valid point, Michael, I shall ask we look into changing this. [[User:Arcane|Arcane]] ([[User talk:Arcane|talk]]) 20:24, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
:Somebody should also add a task to Phabricator suggesting that the default be changed to true. [[User:Leucosticte|Leucosticte]] ([[User talk:Leucosticte|talk]]) 20:25, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
::Unfortunately, MediaWiki's default settings shouldn't be changed. The defaults are that way for a reason. [[:Category:Wikipedia|Wikipedia's]] unblocking system requires infrastructure: unblock templates, unblock categories, and people watching those categories. These three things don't exist on new wikis, especially new wikis operated by inexperienced people. Experience from helping new wiki [[founder]]s at [[:Category:Wikia|Wikia]] back in 2009 tells me that most new wiki founders don't know how to built templates such as "Template:Unblock" or don't watch Special:RecentChanges and other maintenance pages. Changing defaults would require changing what is expected from new wiki operators. Treating each new new operator equally requires low expectations. Raising expectations means putting people who don't know what they're doing down. --[[User:Michaeldsuarez|Michaeldsuarez]] ([[User talk:Michaeldsuarez|talk]]) 20:40, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
:::If these issues are a problem, then sysops can just check the box to block the user from editing their talk page. [[User:Leucosticte|Leucosticte]] ([[User talk:Leucosticte|talk]]) 20:54, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
 
 
==Weigh in on [[WikiIndex:ServerName#Poll]]?==
 
I wanted to be sure to draw your attention to a potential [[WikiIndex:ServerName|decision to change the domain of this wiki]].  I hope you'll weigh in with your opinion.  Thanks! [[User:BrandonCsSanders|BrandonCsSanders]] ([[User talk:BrandonCsSanders|talk]]) 20:10, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
 
 
==Blocking and notifications==
 
I saw the mentioning of eMail in Your blocking comment.  I was always wondering, if blocked [[user]]s do get notifications from watched pages? --[[User talk:Manorainjan|'''<span style="color: orange;">Manorainjan</span>''']] 07:13, 9 August 2017 (PDT)
 
:That should be true as far as I know. [[User:Arcane|Arcane]] ([[User talk:Arcane|talk]]) 07:21, 9 August 2017 (PDT)
 
::I think, that users who are blocked for ever should not get notifications at all. There is quite some possibility, that trolls create an account that they allow to be blocked and receive from their notifications about all pages of their interest. One can set pages to watch even in blocked mode, as far as I have noticed myself on [[German Wikipedia|de:wikipedia]] ;-) Than the troll can cause disturbance easily as [[IP editor]] with changing [[IP address|IPs]]. This is too much of a convenience for blocked people. Maybe one can remove the email address from the blocked account and add this to a separate black list. Than notification must stop, whatever the setting in the account is. What do You think?? [[User talk:Manorainjan|'''<span style="color: orange;">Manorainjan</span>''']] 07:28, 9 August 2017 (PDT)
