You need to have been editing for at least a week as it says on Adoption:Requests. Please come back once you've been editing on that wiki for a week or more. Flawless Diva (talk) 01:28, May 12, 2014 (UTC)

The guidelines don't state you have to be 1 week active before you make a request, so it would be cool if random people stop misleading other people of rules that doesn't exist (this is not directed only at you, I'm seeing a lot of users playing "Staff"). The reason I'm writing this to you is that you seems to know that as you said it here -, you are aware that by the time Staff looks into the request, the required week will pass, yet you tell this user to come back after a week? That's honestly arrogant... and your reply here comes few mins after your reply there...
Btw the user got rights from the founder, so this request can be closed (Unok (talk) 20:51, May 12, 2014 (UTC))

"You have edited on the wikia for at least a week". That's one of the guidelines. True, staff is lenient about this one week guideline, and usually the week that the adoption is handled is enough, but that's not a reason to take this tone.
We don't play staff, we help out by getting the kinks out of adoption requests before staff handles them. And this... it's a simple misunderstanding over interpretation of guidelines, that's not totally unwarranted and is certainly not arrogance. It doesn't warrant that reply. --Tupka217 21:14, May 12, 2014 (UTC)

I didn't meant all replies to the request. Sometimes users don't meet the guidelines and they need to be told, sometimes they don't edit for 3-4 days and it's understandable to tell the users they need to edit to meet the guidelines. I'm referring to those who tell the users on the day of creating the request that they need to edit for a week and then to come back. It's kind of insult, since people assume they haven't read the guidelines, otherwise why would you tell someone, unless you think he don't have read the guidelines? Like I said, it's fine to tell him if the user don't meet other guidelines, but on the first day to tell him about activity...
If it was required to edit 1 week before you create the request, then the other rule stays you have to currently edit the wiki, and since the staff takes a week to look into the request. That's totally 2 weeks of editing activity, which is not what the guidelines says.
For the arrogance part, I still think it. Just look at the user's reply in the link I gave. When someone told the user it needs editing 1 week, before making the request. That same user said that until the staff looks into the request it will be 1 week. But then the same user comes here and tells another user that he needs to edit 1 week before making the request. Sorry, but that annoyed me and I feel it's arrogant behaviour. If Flawless Diva understands the rules like me, then it can't say to this users to come back after a week (because if it thinks it's not a problem in the other thread, it should think it's not a problem here too). Otherwise if it thinks a week in necessary before making a request, it breaks the guidelines in the other thread and hopes the staff will overlook it, i.e. hopes the rules won't work for him, while preaches at others to follows the rules >.> (Unok (talk) 05:12, May 13, 2014 (UTC))

I don't agree with most of that, but won't pursue the matter as it derails this adoption request. --Tupka217 12:55, May 13, 2014 (UTC)
I'm glad to see you got the rights from the founder. Good luck with the wikia! -- Wendy (talk@fandom 00:49, May 21, 2014 (UTC)
