Reception123 added a comment to T11870: Lost the ability to add pages.

This seems strange as all users have permissions to edit on your wiki. Are you sure you're logged into your original account? Could you please describe to us what error you're getting and/or provide a screenshot?

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any evidence that this wiki could've been reset or deleted. No one other than myself has done deletions/drops as far as I'm aware and all the ones I do are in Phorge pastes and I can't find any evidence of itinerantworldswiki being deleted or even recreated. I'm really not sure how this could have happened and would need more details from the user. Since it's very hard to reproduce and an error like this has never been reported before, I unfortunately would have to recommend that the user starts over given that they said they did very little.

@PiscesKazeMGR Indeed, see RequestSSL. It is a new extension created as part of T7582. In the future all of these custom domain requests will not only be possible to do on Meta (without needing to create a task here), but will also be fully automatic. While it is installed, right now it is not used, since it is still under development and not quite ready.

I agree with this task and was going to propose something like this but for most of them users should not be permitted to disable them and it should be made clear that they're "global extensions" and they shouldn't try to ask for us to disable them (as I feel like there's always going to be some who want to get rid of extensions they think they're not using)
