Adoption requests ? Marvel Cinematic Universe Wiki (2)

What is your username? Shabook

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

How many edits have you made on that wiki? 48,971

How many days/months have you been editing there? Almost two years.

On the Special Pages ? Special:ListUsers when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? 35 days ago, New Captain (sysop), http://marvelcinematicuniverse.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/New_Captain

Any other information: The wiki has been acting for more than a year without an active bureaucrat, as New Captain only comes to the wiki a few days every couple of months, mostly to answer some messages in his wall, without actively contributing to the daily tasks of the wiki. This wiki has grown so much, it is very active, with hundreds of edits each day. I've been acting as a "de-facto bureacrat" doing most of the admin work myself and tasks that should have been done by a true bureacrat. I have been encouraged to be the bureacrat by fellow administrators both privately and publicly, such as in this thread here or this one. The only active administrator (though inactive these past few days) that has been an administrator more time than me (Uskok) is currently blocked in another wiki, and therefore, if I'm not mistaken, he is ineligible for an adpotion.

Since New Captain is the only bureaucrat and almost never participates in the wiki, we can't count on asking him for bureaucrat rights, regular users feel discouraged knowing it would be almost impossible to be promoted to admins in a future, and there are administrators who have been inactive for more than a year and nothing can be done to demote them. Therefore, I would like to adopt the Marvel Cinematic Universe Wiki so I could handle those tasks.

I'm aware that there is need to wait 60 days between edits to make the wiki eligible for adoption, but New Captain has spent more than that time inactive, returning only to make some small edits and to answer some messages in his wall, and doesn't even answered this message where I asked if he was interested in keeping his role as an admin/sysop, as he complained to previous administrators before he became one for their inactivity, but now he is the one who is inactive and not even contributing.

I hope this situation can be solved somehow. Thank you very much for your attention.--Shabook (talk) 00:23, August 14, 2015 (UTC)

I've been checking other adoption requests, and I've seen that one of the requisites is to start a public discussion in the wiki: You can check it at our Community Portal, following this link.--Shabook (talk) 00:21, August 19, 2015 (UTC)

The community message has been up for a week now and in the end nobody has refused this proposal. Also, the message in New Captain's wall has been up for more than that and there has been no response yet.--Shabook (talk) 00:25, August 26, 2015 (UTC)
Unofficial response: (Please wait for an official response by a staff member)
That wiki isn't eligible for adoption just yet. A wiki is only eligible for adoption when the admins have been inactive for at least 60 days. Santademon (talk) 00:57, August 17, 2015 (UTC)


Hello. I'm sorry but I cannot find a general community discussion about having a new bureaucrat. There seem to be quite a few active admins; they would all need to agree that you should become the bureaucrat as part of that discussion, and a message should be left for New Captain explaining that you are interested in promoting a new bureaucrat, with a link to the discussion. Let me know on my wall when everybody has been notified/agreed, or after a week if they do not respond, with a link to the community discussion. Thanks! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 03:54, August 26, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for talking to everybody -- I've given you bureaucrat rights as requested. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:07, September 2, 2015 (UTC)
