Sharple. Last edited July 7.

Any other information:

  • Multiple trolls vandalising, but no one can block them.
  • Admin stated that work prevents him from being on the Wiki.
  • The other active users have no problem with me adopting the Wiki.
  • Many pages that are protected need editing/deleting
  • Two users deserve rollback rights and can't get them
  • I was supposed to receive a promotion, but the most active admin left the Wiki.

Hi there! It appears that an administrator edited within the past 60 days. This makes the wiki ineligible to adopt. You can leave them a message though, and maybe they can promote you. Good luck!

I only ask because the admin openly stated that he can barely get on the wiki and meant to promote me (seen here). The other admins have been inactive for longer periods of time.

It seems he has bureaucratic powers, and has approved promoting you. Shouldn't he promote you, since he is around, and has the ability, instead of going through a lengthy adoption? Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)

Like I said, his job prevents him from being on the wiki. To my knowledge, he hasn't logged in since June and his current edits come from automated welcome messages. If he was around, believe me, I'd much rather get the straight promotion instead of the adoption process.

 If I may, there doesn´t appear to be many choices here and Joseph has stated them all. The admin isn´t inactive for the 60 days and as stated before he is busy with his job but, he quite probably will return to the Wiki and once he does, you message him about the promotion and you´ll most likely get admin rights you seek. If he doesn´t return, you can always make a new adoption request but only when the admins are inactive for those 60 days and all the other guidelines are met. You can also try your luck with Sharple who is bureaucrat on the wiki and last edited on July 7th. Good Luck (The Great Lord David (talk) 23:24, August 22, 2014 (UTC)) 
Hi. Because the bureaucrat clearly stated he thought you deserved a promotion to admin but he is no longer responding to messages, I have gone ahead and given you admin rights. Good luck with the wikia! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 03:33, August 27, 2014 (UTC)
