Adoption requests De.computer

What is your username? RainerBlome

Please link to the wiki here: w:c:de.computer:Hauptseite

How many edits have you made on that wiki? About 30 edits so far, plus some on my User page. Note that the founder has made 25 edits (last one in 2006), and the one other user has made 7 edits (w:c:de.computer:Benutzer:Gerd_Taddicken, last edit 2007). All other edits were made by staff or programs.

Besides bringing the leaf article count from one to two, I mainly created a category hierarchy and replaced the unmaintained index pages by redirects to the top level category. For details, see the talk entry w:c:de.computer:Diskussion:Hauptseite#Adoption (in German).

How many days/months have you been editing there? Two days.

I have edited mainly on a few closely related Wikias: the English sibling wiki (10 edits, all this year) and the Computing Knowledgebase (48 edits since 2005, predates the other wikis).

On the Special Pages → Special:ListAdmins when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? w:c:de.computer:Spezial:Benutzer/sysop says that the last and only sysop, w:c:de.computer:Benutzer:DaKo last edited on 25 December 2006 and was last logged in on 31 July 2011.

Any other information: By Wikia convention, w:c:de.computer:Hauptseite is the German language version of the English Computer Wiki, which has hundreds of pages. A blue bar at the top of the main page even says so: "ComputerWiki is also available in English. Check it out! Computer Wiki" The scope of the English Computer Wiki is computers in general, as the title says.

Therefore, the scope of the German version should be the same. Yet, the German main page currently states an intent to use the wiki for Windows stuff, which violates this convention. However, the main page is protected, preventing me from fixing this. To be able to fix this, I hereby request sysop status.

Unofficial response: (Please wait for an official response by a staff member)
German adoptions are handled here. --Tupka217 21:20, May 3, 2015 (UTC)
Tupka is correct -- please make your request on the German adoption requests page, and good luck! -- Wendy (talk@fandom 05:14, May 12, 2015 (UTC)
