It would be a good thing if I could help out with some of your admin. —This unsigned comment is by Macrocompassion (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

If you're asking how to be an admin on a wiki you're contributing to, then you can either:
  • prove with consistent and meaningful editing that you are an asset to the wiki, and request admin rights there, or
  • adopt the wiki if the current local admins are inactive.
If you're indeed asking on how to be a Wikia staff member, which means being employed by Wikia, then you can applicate for a position here. Sovq 17:08, November 3, 2011 (UTC)
Hi there! Community Central is managed by employees of Wikia, as well as a few community members who were selected to help keep it organized. We're not currently accepting requests for new admins, but hopefully that's not necessary for you to get what you're looking for anyway. If there's a situation where your contributions are being deleted, let's talk about it and find out why -- maybe it's something can resolve together. On the other hand, if your goal is to be able to build content about a topic you care about and develop new rules for a community, your best bet is to start your own wiki! Just click the "Start a Wiki" button at the top of any page. You'll be the only admin of the new wiki, and (as long as you're abiding by our Terms of Use) no one will be able to delete your edits. You can find help for starting a new wiki at our Founder & Admin Central. Best of luck! --Dopp WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 17:14, November 3, 2011 (UTC)
