Adoption requests Funghi Gardening Wiki

What is your username? Namster2k

Please link to the wiki here: http://funghigardening.wikia.com

How many edits have you made on that wiki? 661+ (made plenty more on Jan 8 and 9 but forgot to log in... any way these edits can be added to my count?)

How many days/months have you been editing there? Since January 8, 2015.

On the Special Pages → Special:ListAdmins when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? Sir Machius is the only admin. His last edit was on February 8, 2013.

Any other information: The site appears to have been abandoned by the admin. His last login was on May 27, 2014. I've tried contacting him here but to no avail.

Hey - in order to adopt the wiki, you will need to edit there regularly, every day or two for at least a week. Try to edit from now on, and by the time this request is viewed by Staff, you should meet the requirement. Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)
I already accomplished that in January. Please see my contributions. Also if you check the recent changes, the vast majority of edits in the past 30 days were by me. Furthermore, the nature of the game is that an update is released once a month. When it gets released, I immediately update the Wikia with the changes on the same day as the release. So it would be inefficient to update "every day or two for at least a week" for this game. --Namster2k

Staff are not going to look back two months for contributions. If you have not edited recently and met the requirement, your request will not be pushed through. To better secure your chances, it would be a good idea to continue editing for this week, only for the fact that not one edit besides a message within then last week was from you. --JustAnIng (TalkEdits) Unofficial Wikia support 18:06, March 21, 2015 (UTC)
That seems like an unreasonable way of evaluating who should be an admin, if the staff doesn't consider what the user had contributed in the recent past. Regardless, I shall abide by the rules and make a few edits here and there over the next week. --Namster2k

The whole reason Staff want to see active editing is so they are sure that a user hasn't lose their interest in adopting. So, thank you for planning on editing during the waiting process. :) Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)
I figured that the act of applying for an adoption alone shows that a user is interested in adopting. Well, despite how strange the rules seem to me, I'm sure the staff put them in place for a reason. I'm not sure what they've experienced in the past with other users, but from my perspective, just looking at the recent changes log as well as a user's contributions (in addition to the other requirements) should be enough to make an informed decision on granting admin rights... especially for a wikia that had been abandoned by its only admin for over 2 years. The "edit every day or two for at least a week" requirement just makes me feel like my previous contributions of countless hours were for naught and that I'm just logging in a few minutes daily to perform this tedious task simply for the sake of formalities. Anyhow, I've just applied an edit and will do so again each day for the rest of the week. Cheers! :) --Namster2k
Hello. We get requests from people who have edited extensively two years ago and not at all since; we also get quite a few requests from people who have edited for one day, made the request, and never go back to the wikia (or the request) again. That said, the goal is to see recent regular editing. Your contributions over the last few months do count; if I see a pattern that somebody edits the wikia a few times a month over several months with no break up to the present, and are still active, then I would accept that. But that is actually fairly rare. So in the far more common situation that somebody hasn't edited at all or in a long time, then current and consistent editing for at least a week is a minimum requirement.
I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights. Good luck with the wikia! -- Wendy (talk@fandom 02:20, March 28, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation, Wendy! And thanks for granting me admin rights to the wikia! --Namster2k
