How do you become an admin on a wiki that has some active admins, but no active bureaucrats? On The World of Cars Online Wiki, one of the active admins is Iopl3887, which he said that I've been making really good edits on the wiki, and says that I should be an admin. However, all of the bureaucrats are not active, so I don't know how I will be able to become an admin on The World of Cars Online Wiki. --Lightening McQueen (talk) 21:34, February 19, 2013 (UTC)

I'd advice you to take further contact to the remaining Admins on said wiki and see if they have information about the bureaucrats. Another option would be for some of the admins (or you for that matter) to adopt the wiki and thereby overtake the bureaucrat privileges, if the current bureaucrats have not been around for a long while. Look up "Wikia adoption" for more info. --Gnifle (talk) 22:49, February 19, 2013 (UTC)
