Any other information:
I am the Community Manager and PR for the company that owns the game that the wiki is dedicated to (I can provide credentals if it helps). This is the main wiki we support and share on our site. As of late there has been a lot of vandalism on the wiki, and our only admin (and Founder of the wiki) has been offline for about a month.
It is difficult to get some things done with the admin gone, and we can not ban these vandals on the wiki. They keep changing the front page and writing racist remarks everywhere. I would like to get administration/bureacrat rights so I can take care of the problems and help the wiki grow. I don't like seeing the wiki of the game I do PR for become the constant target of vandalism.
However, you can request for a promotion from him, or wait until March, when the request will be eligible. :)Joey (talk)

- It hasn't had an admin edit since August. you'll need to wait a bit more. but just talk to me if you need any more wikis to be an admin on. I have lots. talk to me--Fire guy 888 (talk) 22:07, February 6, 2015 (UTC)
I know the rule is 60 days. Just with the vandalism over the past few days, and because I work for the studio of the game that the wiki is for, that I could possibly get an exception. I have tried to contact the admin in a few places, but to no avail. People have been going on there and changing our front page to promote other games, and writing racial slurs all over the front wall. There isn't much we can do about it except revert it. It would be nice to lock the page and ban the users in question, but no one has the power to do so.
Also, Fire guy 888. I appreciate the offer, but I am doing this for my job. I am not looking to take on admin roles anywhere, I got my hands full with our game as is, but thank you. Jenilya (talk) 02:57, February 7, 2015 (UTC)
- Unofficial response: (Please wait for an official response by a staff member)If you have issues with an active spammer/vandal/user adding false information, contact the VSTF at our wiki, and we can help you deal with the troublemaker while you wait to receive the rights. I've dealt with the current vandalizers for now. Joey (talk)
