Adoption requests Cata Wiki (2)

Current edit count: 920 Edits (Most Edits out of All Users)

How long I have edited there: 51 Days

Last admin to edit and when: Adventuretime1, November 23rd

Other information: This is a resubmission based on an earlier report which can be found here. Since that time, new information has come to pass.

First off, given the limited capability of my power to change things at the Cata Wiki, I became the admin of another wiki that has a close relation to the Cata Wiki, The Game Grumps Wiki.

Secondly, I realized I had never understood the different capabilities of admins in my first request. The only known bureaucrat, , was seen August 10, 2012.

I was able to get in touch with Adventuretime1, and he lead me to this same conclusion. "Don't know how to put this in words...Edit

But I'm glad you've managed to get here. I know I found this dead, sad excuse for a wiki and did what I could, but I feel like you and few others are the ones deserving the credit. It was my poor luck that somehow got me automatically promoted to admin level, and the fact I've stuck to this since early 2012. For someone who's been here nearly a month, you've managed to do more than 5 times what I could do in over a year, that is to say, if you weren't assisted.

What I'm trying to say is, I was given admin just for sticking around, but it's the newcomers that are doing all the work, so I can't necessarily step down, but I'd like sit back and spectate the progress of this wiki. If there's anyone else you know that was hard at work with it at well, just pass this message on.

Here's the problem: Apparently only wiki founders have the ability to promote, which means you have to speak to whoever made this wiki (in which he/she has not been available since before I got here). The founder(s) of a wiki can make others admins through one's 'Contributions' page on their profile, and I have no power.

Side Note: Subsequent wiki-goers that join near or at the beginning of the wiki's lifetime that are auto-admin-ed, so that was searching and a little bit of (un)luck on my part. "

In conclusion, I am writing to express interest and ask for bureaucrat status on the Cata Wiki, with a long term goal of linking it with the Game Grumps Wiki and giving the site a chance at a successful future. My qualifications in the Grumps Wiki should demonstrate my capability for the position.

- Thank you and I hope to hear back soon

Hi! According to this page, you have recently adopted a wiki. In order to adopt another, you must wait at least 60 days after you have received admin rights on a wiki. Kamikaze839
Hi. You can adopt 1 wiki each month, so the previous adoption is not a problem. However, you do need to be currently editing the CATA Wiki in order to adopt it. Please start working on the wiki again and we will check back. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 19:44, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

Much obliged ^__^! It began when I wanted to add collapsible tables and realized it would take admin status to add the proper coding. I started back on it already and will get back on track with it. Thank you for your time. I hope to hear back from you soon.

Hi. I apologize for the delay in looking at this request a second time. I have given you admin and bureaucrat rights.
However, you do not need admin rights to create collapsible tables any more. They are now available to all users, without adding special code. See Help:Collapsing.
Good luck with the wiki! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:31, January 16, 2014 (UTC)
