Adoption requests Lost Boys Wiki

What is your username?


Please link to the wiki here:

How many edits have you made on that wiki? Not a lot, 8 to be precise but it has been largely inactive for months, years in some cases and I aspire to re-vamp the wiki (pun-intended) and making it inviting to other users, then constructing the wiki and then making it an active community.

How many days/months have you been editing there? 1/1

On the Special Pages → Special:ListUsers when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? Last time the Bureaucrat edited was June 4th 2012! and it was User:Headvampire, there are no Admins

Any other information:

I love the Lost Boys Series and the Wiki would benefit greatly from me being it's leader. I could make that a place where all Lost Boys fans could retrieve information about their favourite film or character and discuss what they love about it like every wiki community should. On the Special:Listusers it tells me that only one single edit has been made in 2014 and that was to a user profile, if I was given Bureaucrat rights, I am an active user on multiple Vampire wikis and I could gather and bring users over to make it active, I could spruce up the wiki and make it pretty and inviting to visiting users to make it more likely that they would come back to visit and contribute. I could make a proper wordmark logo, background and edits to the CSS as I have sufficient experience now in Wikia design and coding.

Hi OldOneX, the adoption guidelines say that you must have edited the wiki you want to adopt for 7 days or longer, so this request may be put on hold instead. Best of luck with your request! – Ozuzanna 12:24, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Ozuzanne, I know that I haven't edited there long as the structure of the wiki is undesirable at present but as stated in my request I plan to spruce the place up and make it active, I was hoping that the Staff would understand that. I was also hoping that the adoption guidelines were just guidelines and not mandatory criteria. If the request is put on hold, then how would I go about moving the request forward and contacting the appropriate people after I have fulfilled the criteria they want from me? If someone could explain this I would appreciate it, thanks. - OldOneX (talk) 14:10, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

Hi again OldOneX, I point out the 7 days guideline as I saw elsewhere that is almost-always mandatory. Perhaps by the time staff evaluate your adoption, a week will have passed. Again, best of luck! – Ozuzanna 14:20, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
Hello. Ozuzanna is correct that you need to edit the wikia every day or two for at least a week in order to adopt it. We will put this request on hold. Please start editing the wikia. We will check back again on it. Or, if you have edited for the week and we have not yet checked back you can leave a message on my wall asking me to check again. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:13, May 2, 2014 (UTC)
Hi. I am closing this request as you have not made any further edits to the wikia. Please feel free to ask again when you have more time to work on it! -- Wendy (talk@fandom 03:43, May 30, 2014 (UTC)
