Translate the CreateWiki extension

CreateWiki is an extension which allows users to request wikis or create wikis. It provides three special pages, RequestWiki (for requesting wikis), RequestWikiQueue (for viewing the wiki request queue and handling wiki requests) and CreateWiki (which allows some users to create wikis).

It is based on the Checkuser extension by Tim Starling and Aaron Schulz, and another CreateWiki extension by Kudu.

For reporting an issue or a bug, please use Miraheze Phabricator. See here for the workboard.

Warning Warning: CreateWiki was designed specifically for Miraheze and as such, may not always work on different setups. While efforts have been made to make it more usable by non-Miraheze wikis, this extension is still a primarily Miraheze-focused extension and tailors to Miraheze's setup.

All users (those in the user group by default) can request wikis at Special:RequestWiki. Once they've requested a wiki, they will be assigned a queue number and can check their request's status at Special:RequestWikiQueue.

Those with the createwiki right can also check Special:RequestWikiQueue and handle all wiki creation requests. At that page, they can either approve or decline wiki requests and also change the visibility of a request. Everyone can check RequestWikiQueue at any time to see all requests ever submitted or filter by approved, declined or in review tasks. Users can also filter by user.

Those with the createwiki right can also bypass Special:RequestWiki and manually create wikis themselves at Special:CreateWiki.
