Adoption requests Maroon 5 Wiki

What is your username? Tsu'tey te Rongloa Ateyitan.

Please link to the wiki here:

How many edits have you made on that wiki? 187, however, I am making more, so the number has probably increased since the time that I wrote this.

How many days/months have you been editing there? I've been on there since March 19 of last year, but most of my edits have been made in the past few days. It is only now that I remembered about it, and it's in desperate need of help, and that (in addition to the fact that I'm such a big Maroon 5 fan) has influenced my decision to want to become an administrator on the Wiki and make it better in every way possible.

On the Special Pages → Special:ListAdmins when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? June 14, 2007, and their name was Crazilazigurl. 

Any other information: The Wiki is filled with spam. It's an absolute mess. I stepped in and did everything I could to improve the Wiki, however, there is so much wrong that I think it would be easier to just delete all of the articles and start over. I do articles pretty fast, so it wouldn't be an issue for me. But if you guys allow me to become an administrator on the Maroon 5 Wiki, I will do all I can to improve the Wiki, because for a group as big as them, there is no excuse for having a Wiki like that in such poor shape. It has so much potential, but it's a mess right now. I've re-designed the entire main page, but there's still a lot of work that needs to be done. I've also created a Twitter widget and a custom wordmark to add, but I can't add either of them without administrative rights.

There is a group of anonymous users who have created these "Kids for Character" pages or whatever, and they're ridiculous; they're notorious for doing this thing where, for example, on the Maroon 5 Wiki, they will create an article for an artist that is completely unrelated to them - for example, Carly Rae Jepsen, and put pictures of her in the article and then have the article say only "Kids for Character". There are an INSANE amount of them, so many that if I became an administrator, it would take me forever to delete them all. And there's a bunch of category pages that could be deleted, too, because they're unnecessary. And all or most of the Maroon 5-related articles were copied word-for-word from Wikipedia with the links kept and everything, and they did not use the Wikipedia template. If possible, is there a way you guys could keep any template pages and the main page, but delete all of the actual articles and all of the category pages? I don't know if you're able to or not, but it would help a lot because the Wiki is a mess right now. I want to do everything I can to make this Wiki everything it should be, however, I can't do that without taking care of everything these people messed up first.

I'm highly qualified for this position because I'm an administrator on three other Wikis - Adele, P!nk, and Avril Lavigne. The Adele Wiki was created by me, but the other two were not, and I stepped in and assisted with many of the issues on those Wikis that are similar to the many issues the Maroon 5 Wiki has. There's always room for improvement, but I've drastically improved those Wikis. Those on Wikia who know me and are familiar with my work know that I work really hard on my Wikis, and if you allow me to adopt this Wiki, I will not disappoint. Thank you so much!

Hello there! If you have issues with an active spammer/vandal/user adding false information, contact the VSTF at their wiki, and they can help you deal with the troublemaker while you wait to receive the rights. Hope everything works out. Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)
