Zepranan Deletion

Hello. I am bringing up a complaint made by many users of Microwiki and members of its Discord. This might not be the right place to do it, but I will regardless. Terry McKeen should not be protected nor defended by the administration. He may be a minor who does not truly understand the consequences of his actions, but he is not completely innocent either. I am requesting that his IP be banned, if it hasn't already. I also wish that either his page be removed of its protection, or deleted. Thanks. Andrew I of Pontunia (talk) 14:10, 27 September 2022 (UTC)

We banned the user in question already (as you can see in the block log or their contributions page), and some of the IPs associated with him that we know of (this was done today, since autoblock did not seem to do it the first time). Removing the protection is out of the question because the page is frequently vandalized, but deletion could certainly be considered, since the entire admin team is getting very tired of this.
This next section is not directed at you, but I would recommend to everyone to stop engaging with him as soon as possible (to simply, not "feed the troll"), ban him from your venues (implement a verification gate if he keeps coming back and check your permissions in case of Discord), and if you have any evidence of him doing any criminal activites, hand them over to the relevant macronational authorities. Nothing else will work, and we will not tolerate people spreading any rumours that they are not willing to take to the authorities being spread on our site. Instead of giving him the attention he does not deserve, people can work on their micronations. Luxor (talk) 15:02, 3 October 2022 (UTC)

Image upload issue

I'm trying to upload an svg image, but I keep getting this error message. Any assistance given would be much appreciated. Liahonia.gov (talk) 02:12, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

Liahonia.gov Hi, we have had some problems recently with SVG files, and technical administrators are currently fixing the issue. Until the issue is fixed, try upload the image in a different format. Matt talk ☼ 23:05, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

Spam

I am rewriting an article entirely and it is being noted as spam, can an admin help? (Cryptocurrency words detection [spam] - It's constructive and in no way spam.

How do I protect my article page?

@Countryballs123456789: Hi! Articles can only be protected by Wiki admin if there is an edit war or vandalism. Which article do you want to protect and why? Also, to note that you won't be able to edit that article if it's protected.

How do I make the box thing-y?

How do I make the box thingy?

What "box thingy" are you referring too? MIR-Cypher.png Liahonia.gov (talk)
The box where the nation's infos are there and picture of it and stuff at the right side of the page
If you type template:infobox into the search bar, you should get a variety of different kinds of infoboxes. Keep in mind though, there are 1,757 different infobox templates on this wiki. Also, it is commonplace on talk pages to add four tildes (~~~~) at the end, so we know who asked the question, unless you've figured out how to get fancy with your signature.

How do I create a page in sandbox?

I want to make a page about the independent land I own, so how do I keep it in the sandbox while creating?

Link to specific level

I’m aware you can link to a heading via pagename#heading, but I was wondering if it is possible to link to a subheading? Any advice would be great! - Concordian Republic Callum Russell, Concordian President (user | talk) 02:06, 14 September 2022 (UTC)

Update 5 minutes later: I’m kinda dumb. I’m sorry to inconvenience anybody who reads this. You can just link to a subsection by pagename#nameofwherever. Thanks, Concordian Republic Callum Russell, Concordian President (user | talk) 02:11, 14 September 2022 (UTC)

A person edited my page to make me look bad.

The sultanate of Qardasha and I had some trouble some weeks ago due to them harassing me and me reporting them, so they modified my nation's page, telling things that weren't true and making my reputation worse. Is there anything I can do to make them stop, other than ruining their page too?

@SapphireMMX: Revert the changes on your article and ask for an administrator to settle the dispute. Also use four tildes at the end of your message as a signature. -- President Devin Purcell  Penn Federal Republic 15:49, 27 September 2022 (UTC)

Confederation of Renfrew Deletion

Hello, I am sorry if this is the wrong place to this do, but I don't know where else to put this - I am requesting the deletion of the article Confederation of Renfrew for a privacy violation. It includes my name - my real one. Hank

@Hankbritishshorthair: Hey there. I am not an administrator, but there is something that you could do. If you want, you can just edit the page and change your name to whatever pseudonym. The admins encourage avoiding article deletion as much as possible. - Caskade720 (talk) 03:56, 17 October 2022 (UTC)

Page Vandalism

Hello. I have recently noticed that someone whom my nation has recently defeated in a war has begun to vandalise my nations page. They are also making false accusations about the people within the nation, such as myself.

This user is Cafaerc10.  He has cut off all communication with me already so there is no way I can deal with this issue.  There is also evidence that he has done things like this in the past and has had trouble with people already.  I request that his IP gets banned. Thank you. Frostbite (talk) 11:55, 18 October 2022 (AWST)
You can definitely send them a talk page message here. Matt talk ☼ 04:41, 18 October 2022 (UTC)
@Matt: I have already tried several times but they do not respond. Since I originally wrote this message, they've already vandalised it again. I, again, request their IP gets banned. It's the only way I forsee them stopping this, and even that may not stop them. Frostbite (talk) 14:24, 18 October 2022 (AWST)

About the page

Good afternoon, please change to the name "Interlandia" (in Russian Интерландия), and remove it from the draft. Link https://micronations.wiki/wiki/Draft:Интеландия

Post

How to post?

Any regards on the photo problem? I cannot upload any photos without getting a message saying it can't be stored.

Is using coats of arms and photos of public figures allowed?

I have a doubt: is it allowed to use photos of public people (such as politicians and etc) to serve as "characters" for my particular nation?

Can I create a fictional country?

How exactly do I insert an image onto my page? Because whenever I try, it just appears with the source writing rather than the picture itself.
