Any other information:

I have read the Ender's game series and all related books as well as other works from Orson Scott Card. I am on the Wiki everyday. The Wiki needs a lot of organization and help. It is missing lots of information and articles and I plan to improve this wiki a lot. I am also the ADMIN ofShatter Me Wiki, The 13th Reality Wiki.

Hello. You are ineligible to adopt because you have adopted another wiki within the last month. You will be eligible to adopt again on or after 16 January 2016. --LêgêndFPŠ wall

Reply: I didn't know that! Thank you for informing me. Should I request it again when I am eligible or will this request still be accepted? :) Lyra Ashwood (talk) 11:08, December 24, 2015 (UTC)

I think the way you talk about a wiki needing more organization and such is good. Anyhow, good luck with running the wikis you currently have rights to, and good luck with this one! Even if you can't adopt it right away, if you really want to help, it doesn't stop you from editing as a regular editing, so I would highly recommend you doing that. Happy holidays!

Reply: Lol yeah I just thought it would help and be to my advantage and stuff, otherwise it is pretty much completely unecessary. XD Thank you and happy holidays! Lyra Ashwood (talk) 11:08, December 24, 2015 (UTC)

How many edits have you made on that wiki?

795 edits.

How many days/months have you been editing there?

Since December 29, 2015


On the Special Pages → Special:ListAdmins when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it?

There are four Admins on the wiki:

  • December 30, 2015 -->Teenbat (Replying to wall post, first edit in years)
  • June 20, 2006 --> Taalcon
  • April 28, 2014 --> NoodleGuy
  • December 30, 2015 -->123chess456 (Replying to wall post, first edit in more than two years)


Any other information:

This wiki is a mess, and there are no active, dedicated members who are fixing it. In the few days I've been there, I have done hundreds of edits to bring it up to shape, however there are some things I'm unable to do because I'm not an admin, such as deleting pages and broken navbar links.

There are two admins who have edited recently, but they only replied to a wall post. They haven't contributed to the actual wiki in years.

I see that this page was requested to be adopted by Aaron Warner-Perfection, but they have not edited in over a week, and the few edits they have done total were mostly to their own page.

I messaged Teenbat, an admin, on his wall, but he could not give me admin status because he is not a bureaucrat. Here is his reply: I'm sorry, I'm only an admin. Only bureaucrats can give admin status. What I would suggest is continuing to make edits as you can, and then requesting adoption at the Community Wiki.

I haven't edited here for 2+ years, which I regret considering I joined doing the same thing you are.

Anyway, good luck. You have my permission to link to this message in your adoption request.

Here is the link to his wall, so you can see the post. http://ansible.wikia.com/wiki/Message_Wall:Teenbat

Though there are no active members, I still created a blog post about the adoption. http://ansible.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:MavikVCT/Adopting_the_Wiki


ResponseEdit

Hi. Teenbat is a bureaucrat and could have promoted you, but I've given you the rights. Good luck with the wikia! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 01:24, January 8, 2016 (UTC)
