Moderator Rank

I noticed you got Moderator rank, any idea on how I could possibly apply for it? --User:WILSON2bGg

Please ask Andy, though I think it's unlikely you'll get it for now. X010 (talk) 20:44, 17 March 2019 (GMT)
Why do you think it would be unlikely for me? --WILSON2bGg
probably not specific to you , just in general --Neptuneflag.pngDans34Talk 20:47, 17 March 2019 (GMT)

Hello X010, I need to ask if normal users like me can redirect the page. And if I can, where can I find the option? --ToMi (talk) 18:28, 4 April 2019 (BST)

@ToMi Anyone can redirect a page. Just replace the current content with #REDIRECT [[redirect location]]. X010 (talk) 17:30, 4 April 2019 (BST)
@X010 OK, thanks very much.--ToMi (talk) 18:33, 4 April 2019 (BST)


Hello X010, I need to ask if normal users like me can delete the page? --ToMi (talk) 19:29, 10 April 2019 (BST)

Hi @ToMi, unfortunately you cannot delete pages at this time, but you can tag one for deletion using the template {{delete|your reason}}. X010 (talk) 19:11, 11 April 2019 (BST)

Moving pages to new namescheme

I have started moving pages to the new software name/full buildtag name system. I want to try to move them without a redirect, so can you possibly make me a mover? --SebOno (Let's have a talk!) (Sandbox) et'sLay xpandeay hetay etaArchiveBay ikiway! 15:01, 13 April 2019 (BST)

If done, leave the {{Done}} template above this message. If not done, please state why.

@SebOno Yes check.svg.png Done. The Mover right also allows you to delete pages, which you can use to delete the redirects you created previously. X010 (talk) 16:17, 13 April 2019 (BST)
@X010 Wow, thanks! I am enjoying editing this wiki and having the mover right. Once again, thank you! --SebOno (Let's have a talk!) (Sandbox) et'sLay xpandeay hetay etaArchiveBay ikiway! 15:10, 16 April 2019 (BST)

mover and uploader

I want to move pages into new naming scheme. Also can you upload this pciture as Placeholder.png ? Thanks.--MCpillager - remember, a build list is just a lot of numbers. 17:16, 17 April 2019 (BST)

@MCpillager Not done for both. The BetaArchive logo (Mainpagetempimage2.png) should be fine for placeholder images (a similar placeholder file was deleted for this reason). As for the mover right, you were automatically autoconfirmed today, and hence you can upload files and move pages (with a redirect). I'd like to see some experience moving pages under a redirect before giving the mover right to you. X010 (talk) 18:30, 17 April 2019 (BST)
@X010 Mainpagetempimage2.png looks ugly to me.--MCpillager - remember, a build list is just a lot of numbers. 07:40, 18 April 2019 (BST)
@MCpillager Why? Is it due to the low resolution? X010 (talk) 09:49, 18 April 2019 (BST)
@X010 yes.--MCpillager - remember, a build list is just a lot of numbers. 09:43, 19 April 2019 (BST)
@MCpillager Well, it seems that we don't have a better quality image of the BA logo. Not sure which is better - @WILSON2bGg @SebOno @Mibrab - what are your thoughts on which image to use? X010 (talk) 15:16, 19 April 2019 (BST)
@X010 I suggest we stick with the current one. MCpillager's one looks too much like the BetaWiki one. --SebOno (Let's have a talk!) (Sandbox) et'sLay xpandeay hetay etaArchiveBay ikiway! 15:19, 19 April 2019 (BST)
@SebOno It looks too much like the BetaWiki one because it is ripped straight from BetaWiki (see the link). In my opinion, the old placeholder image is probably the best we have for now, but really anything with a transparent background would work. The best idea would probably be to do something based on the wiki logo. --Mibrab (talk) 22:41, 19 April 2019 (BST)

Thank you - Mover group

Thank you very much, X010. --ToMi (talk) 10 April 2019, 11:12 (BST)

Community portal

Can you add the Community portal to the navigation bar?--MCpillager - remember, a build list is just a lot of numbers. 17:08, 26 April 2019 (BST)

@MCpillager Yes check.svg.png Done to the existing area in the wiki. While I liked your idea, the design does look like one which has been taken straight from BetaWiki and hence will require some community input. X010 (talk) 17:15, 26 April 2019 (BST)


Can you make him a mover? I've seen his contribs on BetaWiki and they are good.--MCpillager - remember, a build list is just a lot of numbers. 12:37, 27 April 2019 (BST)

@MCpillager X mark.png Not done No, he needs to wait one week and have ten edits to be able to move pages in the first place. This is not something that I can override. X010 (talk) 13:19, 27 April 2019 (BST)


Give me a reason why you deleted my page it’s a nice idea Wwepro126 (talk) 21:47, 29 April 2019 (BST)

@Wwepro126 Please see my response here. X010 (talk) 22:03, 29 April 2019 (BST)


Can I have mover rights?--MCpillager - remember, a build list is just a lot of numbers. 10:33, 1 May 2019 (BST)

X mark.png Not done @MCpillager I have no issues with you as a contributor. However, there are some issues with you that make me hesitate, personally, from giving you the right. For instance, you should not have archived the last conversation on your talk page. Please try again after gaining some more experience. (You may also contact a bureaucrat instead) X010 (talk) 22:15, 1 May 2019 (BST)


Can you import the Box template from MediaWiki?--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 09:28, 3 May 2019 (BST)

@MCpillager Yes check.svg.png Done Imported to Template:Box. X010 (talk) 09:31, 3 May 2019 (BST)
@X010 THX a lot, ill be changing a lot of templates to use this template.--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 09:32, 3 May 2019 (BST)
@MCpillager Wait, why would you need to change the existing templates to use this one? X010 (talk) 09:33, 3 May 2019 (BST)


something like this may happen.--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 09:42, 3 May 2019 (BST)

@MCpillager I think considering all that is too early for that right now (we are still tiny!), and currently the correct thing would be to simply discuss it on the file talk page and leave a small note on the file description page. X010 (talk) 09:45, 3 May 2019 (BST)
Not sure how someone faking a 1080p screen of Win 1.04 is a dispute. --LilShootDawg (talk) 11:05, 3 May 2019 (BST)
@LilShootDawg Still, its not possible to get such a high resolution in a very early windows.--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 12:00, 3 May 2019 (BST)
@MCpillager Why did you add the templates again? We haven't received consensus on that. Also, what does your previous comment have to do with this topic? X010 (talk) 13:08, 3 May 2019 (BST)


Hello X010, can you import the Ambox from MediaWiki please? ToMi (talk) 17:32, 3 May 2019 (BST)

Yes check.svg.png Done @ToMi Imported as Template:Bmbox from wikibooks:Template:Bmbox and not Mediawiki due to the latter's complexity. A bit of cleanup work might be needed (in particular, you should upload the images manually), and also take care of Template:Bmbox/core, which does most of the hard work. Please let me know if there are any issues. X010 (talk) 17:43, 3 May 2019 (BST)
OK, thanks very much. ToMi (talk) 17:45, 3 May 2019 (BST)

Copy Everything from beta wiki

Copy everything from beta wiki and we. Are not tiny anymore and is had to be 1 that’s ok Wwepro126 (talk) 21:42, 5 May 2019 (BST)

@Wwepro126 What are you trying to tell me? We are not BetaWiki and Wikipedia and this site is not a mirror repository either. X010 (talk) 21:43, 5 May 2019 (BST)
See Template:Dispute That from beta wiki Wwepro126 (talk)
@Wwepro126 That template has been deleted twice previously for the same reason. X010 (talk) 21:46, 5 May 2019 (BST) Everyone this post is officially closed

Forget about this post you do your admin things I do my expert things ok 🤝

Wwepro126 (talk)
If you are an expert at copying stuff from other websites, then you seem to be really great at your job. --AlphaBeta (talk) 22:15, 5 May 2019 (BST)

Template:Cite book

It is from Wikipedia, please import it.

Please do not add VisualEditor! I've used it on Fandom before, and most mobile browsers do not support it.
--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 07:25, 6 May 2019 (BST)

@MCpillager Why do we need that template? Wouldn't the usual <ref> tags do?
(Aside: VisualEditor is not on the wiki due to its complexity in installing. But I personally like it, and if I'm right, mobile browsers will use a different editor anyway.) X010 (talk) 10:17, 6 May 2019 (BST)


@Wwepro126 I can't understand what you are saying. But a block might be next in order if you continue disrupting conversations with this nonsense. I've clearly told you before, we are not a repository and hence I won't accept blatant copypasting from any source. X010 (talk) 12:20, 6 May 2019 (BST)
@X010 Please block him. I feel like that this is sonicridersuser again.--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 12:40, 6 May 2019 (BST)
EDIT: He meant to say that you are not allowed to import this template. Along with telling you to import VisualEditor, change the rules, and copy everything from WikiPedia/BetaWiki.
@MCpillager I know that, but why is he telling all this nonsense? Also, I don't know "sonicrideruser". X010 (talk) 13:05, 6 May 2019 (BST)
Idk, but here is some info about sonicridersuser [1]. --MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 16:30, 6 May 2019 (BST)
I’m sorry someone delete this post forget about this 🤝 user:Wwepro126


Can you import Warning from mediawiki please Wwepro126 (talk) 17:48, 6 May 2019 (BST)

@Wwepro126 Why? Where do you plan to use that template? X010 (talk) 17:54, 6 May 2019 (BST)

You should do this : Yes check.svg.png Done Not : X mark.png Not done —  Preceding unsigned comment added by Wwepro126 (talkcontribs)

That's enough. X010 (talk) 17:59, 6 May 2019 (BST)


Is this page eligible for moving to main namespace? It is still WIP tho.--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 07:52, 7 May 2019 (BST)

@MCpillager Yes, there is some substantial content in it. Even though it's still work in progress, that's fine. X010 (talk) 10:21, 7 May 2019 (BST)

Feature request

Can you make the names of blocked users striked through and be in italic? As shown in this picture?--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 09:45, 8 May 2019 (BST)

@MCpillager It should be possible, but that would require additional customisation (i.e, it's not straightforward). I might think about it later. X010 (talk) 10:04, 8 May 2019 (BST)

Main page

Hello X010, you can fix the IBM:OS/2 link to OS/2 in the Main page, please? Thank you. --ToMi (talk) 13:28, 9 May 2019 (BST)

@X010 Thanks for fix. --ToMi (talk) 13:53, 9 May 2019 (BST)
@ToMi Yes check.svg.png Done. But you can actually do it yourself; the main page templates (where the content is transcluded) is only semi-protected (which you can edit); it's Template:Main Page/Categories in this case. X010 (talk) 13:55, 9 May 2019 (BST)
@X010 Yes, thanks --ToMi (talk) 13:57, 9 May 2019 (BST)

MCpillager the real

This guy is insulting Me, can you protect my pages and ban him?--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 13:42, 9 May 2019 (BST)

THX a lot, can you please protect my user pages?--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 13:47, 9 May 2019 (BST)
EDIT: Also disable his talk page previlages, he started spàmmíng me.
X mark.png Not done It was a one-off incident. I'll consider protecting your userpages only if there is evidence of continuous abuse, and I've revoked his talk page access. But do not make assumptions on who the abuser is; we have CheckUser here and are trying to find out. X010 (talk) 13:55, 9 May 2019 (BST)

Arkan9 IS "MCpillager the real"

Sorry, but its true. --MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 12:28, 10 May 2019 (BST)

@MCpillager You cannot make assumptions without technical proof. If you have further evidence, please submit it through a PM on the forum rather than public on the wiki. X010 (talk) 12:30, 10 May 2019 (BST)
@MCpillager First, do you have any actual proof for your claims? As X010 said above, you can't just make assumptions like this because they used the same swear word. Hint: millions of people use the word dipshit worldwide. Second, considering this is more of a BetaWiki matter, I am not really sure why do you bring this up with a BetaArchive Wiki administrator, who can't really do anything with this gossip, instead of contacting either me or ovctvct. You don't report your car's theft to a fire fighter, do you? --AlphaBeta (talk) 12:49, 10 May 2019 (BST)
@AlphaBeta@X010 You know what? [2] (I don't use Discord)--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 12:51, 11 May 2019 (BST)
@MCpillager What should I do with that? Use forum PM instead if you really need to... X010 (talk) 14:35, 11 May 2019 (BST)


Hello, I want to ask if these templates: 1, 2, 3 would fit into buildlists on pages Windows. --ToMi (talk) 13:47, 10 May 2019 (BST)

@ToMi That would be of use only if we keep track of dubious or fake builds, which we don't. X010 (talk) 13:51, 10 May 2019 (BST)
@X010 OK, thanks --ToMi (talk) 13:54, 10 May 2019 (BST)
@X010 Bonus: This is the preview of the Windows 1.0 page --ToMi (talk) 14:05, 10 May 2019 (BST)
Why don't we keep track of fake builds?--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 14:49, 10 May 2019 (BST)
@MCpillager The official guidance I have received from mrpijey says that we should only cover builds which are known to exist (also see the Wiki Guidelines), and fakes can only be covered under some conditions. It was not my decision to do this. X010 (talk) 15:53, 10 May 2019 (BST)
Guys, seriously, if you want to make the BA wiki look like BetaWiki, why not just edit BetaWiki instead? --AlphaBeta (talk) 15:56, 10 May 2019 (BST)

Import: Archive & Archives, from BetaWiki

Can you import [3] and [4] from BetaWiki?--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 17:18, 10 May 2019 (BST)

@MCpillager Can we get it from Wikimedia Commons instead? That could be a better option instead. X010 (talk) 17:20, 10 May 2019 (BST)
I have checked Wikimedia Commons, and they are there.--MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 17:23, 10 May 2019 (BST)
Yes check.svg.png Done Imported as Template:Talkarchive and Template:Archive box. You should now revert both to a suitable revision (the newer ones are unsuitable), and import the images as required. X010 (talk) 20:55, 10 May 2019 (BST)


Can I move this page to the Template namespace? This time, it is not a copy-paste of BetaWiki. --SebOno (talk | contribs | sandbox) elcomeWay otay etaArchiveBay ikiWay! 16:13, 12 May 2019 (BST)

@SebOno That's fine, but I wonder whether we really need it. X010 (talk) 16:58, 12 May 2019 (BST)


Import the following here: [5] --MCpillager - 2147483648 bytéß øf dãtâ 13:13, 14 May 2019 (BST)
