http://legendsofyore.wikia.com/wiki/Legends_of_Yore_Wiki appears to have been started but abandoned. how do i take over admin rights on this, so i can build it? i'm not willing to build a wiki from the ground up without proper admin rights.

First, start editing there consistently, make sure you have the time to give a new wiki the care it needs. Make sure the admin hasn't been active in the last 60 days, in your case, the admin hasn't been active since September 29, but hasn't edited at all, so I don't know what that'd be. Then place an adoption request like Head.Boy.Hog said. – zzi 18:22, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
All that is said at Community Central:Adoption requests.

I was about to say what Head.Boy.Hog was going to, but then I noiced he had said it. Yes, the adoption requests in the right place to go. As he said, make sure you have time for it. Noobe
ah, i see now. thanks for the link.
i'm paranoid about having the founder (who has another domain at [[1]] and has added content to that one) undo any or all of my work. SteelGolem 18:39, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
