Hello there! It seems the one you linked us to leads to a different Wikia than the one in which you have made one thousand plus edits. You are on are founder on the Wikia where you linked in the other information area. So, you cannot adopt a Wikia where you are the founder. Also, the one you did link us to is where you have only edited for two days. You must edit for at least a week in a row.

Happy editing!

Question: will this adoption request still stand in a week from now or do i have to make the same request again? --PowerWikiNL (talk) 07:21, April 8, 2015 (UTC)

Nederlandstalige adopties worden hier niet behandeld. Je hoeft dus geen nieuwe adoptie te maken, want die zal ook worden gesloten - ga naar de Nederlandse Community Wikia. Wacht tot je een antwoord krijgt op je uitstaande adoptieverzoek.--Tupka217 11:47, April 8, 2015 (UTC)

Hi - the wiki is ineligible to adopt, due to there being other active admins and bureaucrats. Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)
I think you are confusing http://nl.pokemons.wikia.com/ with http://nl.pokemon.wikia.com/ --PowerWikiNL (talk) 09:18, April 10, 2015 (UTC)

Ah! You are most correct. Thanks for correcting me, and sorry about the oversight. ;) Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)

I hope you do not mind me barging in, but I was looking throughout the adoption requests and being a big Pokémon fan it was obvious that this one caught my attention. Now, out of pure curiosity, may I ask why are there three different Dutch Pokémon wikis? And also Pokémon is an irregular plurar that does not end in -s. Thank you! --Star Warden-- 23:53, April 14, 2015 (UTC)

I don't have a definite reason why there are several, but most likely because users wanted a wiki url they preferred to type, with some wanting an "s" at the end, and others not. Though, there are dozens of other possible reasons as to why. Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)
My plan is to merge http://nl.pokemon-nederland.wikia.com/ with http://nl.pokemons.wikia.com/ into one wiki. That still leaves http://nl.pokemon.wikia.com/, but perhaps it would be for the best to have an alternative ready. --PowerWikiNL (talk) 09:02, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

But does not this go against the idea of a community itself? What can two or three wikis (that represent the same concept) do more separately than one unified wiki? Also, not to be rude or such but any true Pokémon fan will not alter the name itself. Pokémon is always the same in both singular and plural. --Star Warden-- 09:54, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

If this upsets you: there are 20-ish Spongebob wikis. In English alone. They can arise through multiple causes - an argument with the original, lack of knowledge of the original, covering only a section of the franchise, and more. Wikia allows duplicates, though I agree - one big community can do more than three small ones. As for the added s, it could just be a case of "ah, my user name is taken, let's add a number or x or whatever after it". However, let's keep this adoption on topic - with the adoption. Which should be handled here. --Tupka217 10:29, April 15, 2015 (UTC)
Hello. Tupka is correct that dutch-language adoptions should be handled on the dutch adoption page he linked. That said, there is no need to adopt a wikia in order to do a merge. Please see Help:Merging_wikias for more information. You will need to make an announcement on the wikia you plan to "close" and have the support of any community there. You will also need to import/export any unique content from the wikia that will be closed onto the one you will keep open. Then send a request to Special:Contact to have the smaller wikia closed and the URL either re-assigned or re-directed to the one that will stay open. Let me know if you have any questions! -- Wendy (talk@fandom 04:28, April 17, 2015 (UTC)
Does this mean i now have permission to merge the two wikis? There is no active community on http://nl.pokemons.wikia.com/ --PowerWikiNL (talk) 07:13, April 17, 2015 (UTC)
