How many days/months have you been editing there?

Since September 19th, 2011 (so for about 17 months)

On the Special Pages → Special:ListUsers when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it?

July 17th, 2013; the user was TARDIS2010 (see below for more info)

Any other information:

The wiki does have one active admin (TARDIS2010), and I have recieved his permission and support to be an admin (see my talk page on the wiki as proof of this), only he does not have the ability to promote me. Any users with that power are currently inactive. I contacted Wiki Help with this information and they said to submit a request here. Here is a copy of that discussion:

Thanks for contacting Wikia. We have a page on the Community Central wiki where you can request admin status on any wiki that doesn't have an active admin team. Please see for more information. On this page you can review the adoption criteria, as well as put in your request (remember to always provide a link to the wiki).

Please provide a link to this discussion at the Adoption page, which will make it easy for staff to give the rights to the user(s) the community agrees on.

Good luck, and thanks for using Wikia!

Hi there,

I am writing to request admin status on the Dad's Army wiki; I have already cleared this with and have the support of the only currently active admin on the wiki, TARDIS2010, but he says that he does not have the ability to promote me to admin (this seems to reside with the founder, who has not been active for a long time) and suggested that I contact wiki support. I have contacted the user Yeepsi and waited for several months, but have received no response. You can check my talk page on the Dad's Army wiki for proof that I have permission from TARDIS2010 :)

Hi. Thanks for the information about the active admin; I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights. Good luck with the wiki! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 05:17, August 1, 2013 (UTC)
