Adoption requests Harry Potter OC Wiki

What is your username? Mewrlise

Please link to the wiki here: http://harry-potter-oc.wikia.com/wiki/Harry_Potter_OC_Wiki

How many edits have you made on that wiki? 415+

How many days/months have you been editing there? Since August the 2nd; 

On the Special Pages → Special:ListAdmins when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? 12 November 2012; DrPhillWoodchip

Any other information: I have made a blog post addressing the other users and admin (1 admin=DrPhillWoodchip and only 1 active user). Despite only recently joining and this wikia page I have grown rather fond of it and wish to see it prosper since I believe it has the potential for it. I have attempted to try and tidy it up a bit by finding each and every single page and assigning it to a category as well as leave comments on articles to encourage users to finish them or enquiring if they need any help. Though my current status limits my ability to do so.

I have been reading a lot of the post on the wikia community central to try and improve my skill and learn more about what it would take to manage a community and help it grow. I am an active member of The N.O.W wikia for a while and can be found helping other users when my abilities permit it, help in organisation projects (find abandoned pages and have them put in a special forum that was made arranged by length of abandonment) as well as encourage them continue editing. Therefore I will be able to do the same for the Harry Potter OC wikia. 

I'm not claiming to know everything there is to know about how to run a wikia page but I am driven and want to see this wikia flourish. I've also reached out to the Harry Potter wikia asking them to add the Harry Potter OC wikia to their list of other related wikias as well as my fanfiction page in an attempt to spread awareness of it. 

I would like to update its guidelines and provide the users with someone active to help them when it comes to editing or general queries as well as be someone that maintains the wikia looking neat and prevent users from using artwork that does not belong to them (ie: fanart without artist's permission or edited artwork, again without artist's permission)

Please take in consideration my Adoption request (haven't requested one before and I have not been banned anywhere) and have a lovely remaining week. Mewrlise (talk) 14:30, September 1, 2016 (UTC)

As advised, I am posting what I wrote (most of it) on Merrystar's message wall here:

" I just wanted to ask  for a (hopefully) small thing:

I must go with my mother for the weekend due to family reasons and from what I understand during an adoption request especially one needs to be editing constantly or every other day. Now I will try to edit early morning/tonight as well so that it doesn't become a bother, but just in case I can't do so and am unable to edit during this weekend and if by chance you happen to look over my request then; please do not hold it against me if for those two days I lack any edits.

I am serious about my adoption request but life doesn't always accommodate for internet needs >.< and I wanted to at least let you know in case this affects it. 

All the best and a lovely weekend, (sorry for the long message)

Hello. I hope you had a good weekend. I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights. Good luck with the wiki! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 05:30, September 13, 2016 (UTC)
