Adoption requests Downton Abbey wiki

 What is your username? User:HarryPotterRules1

How many days/months have you been editing there? 10 months


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

Today. We have an admin, Fandyllic. I am requesting to be made an admin as well.


Any other information:

Our admin means well, and gives people second chances - even though some people - namely CestWhat - should've been kicked out weeks ago because of their original actions setting off the argument we're dealing with - and while he has not greeted new accounts (this is due to running two wikis at once, I believe), he has dealt well with violence and had built a good - if fractured - community. While we do have many articles up for deletion, this is because they have been moved into a "List of minor off screen characters" page, and so the actual pages are not needed.

While I do have 7 opposed at the request, they are all due to one person - this person knows whom they are.

I ask to be made admin as if CestWhat is made admin, then he will pack the administration board with people who dislike me and will try to kick me out. This is why I make the request - I will allow people from both sides of the board to be beaurocrats if necessary.

Oppose and wish he/she was banned, if not warnedEdit

Please note that nearly every other contributor opposes User:HarryPotterRules1's request. http://downtonabbey.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:Adminship#Oppose_HarryPotterRules1

Also note the treats of violence made against contributors.

Considering that a user who is both an admin and a bureaucrat edited within the last day, I believe that this wiki is most likely ineligible for adoption. I won't speak for Wikia staff on here, but I doubt that this process is going to go far because of the active admin and bureaucrat. SchuminWeb (talk) 03:59, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
SchuminWeb is correct; the wiki is ineligible for adoption. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:09, January 17, 2013 (UTC)
