On the Special Pages → Special:ListAdmins when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it?
Gamekirby, 23:54 February 20, 2016 (slightly early request, but reasons are specified below)
Any other information:
I am coming here to request administrative and bureaucratic rights for the PJ Masks Wiki. The primary reason I am filing a request now is because Gamekirby, the founder & sole administrator, has fallen inactive for some time. There have been handfuls of spam comments and silly edits as of late. I asked Gamekirby for administrative rights in December, but he never responded to it. The only message of mine he replied to out of several was a block request for a person making spam edits. Gamekirby last edited on February 20th, and I was told by Merrystar that I could file a request if he edited once a month or less (he made a few small edits before his last in February). The proof of her saying this is attached here:
As I have 2+ years of experience as the main admin of the PAW Patrol Wiki (the owner let me take her position since she moved on to another project), I would love to help Gamekirby make the PJ Masks Wiki the absolute best it can be. Since my arrival in September, I have brought along several helpful infoboxes, templates and more to help the site’s organization and appearance. As it is specified in the adoption guidelines, I have left Gamekirby a message informing him of my adoption process, and I have also created a blog post on the wiki regarding the adoption which has received positive support from several. I have also became good friends with a fellow editor who is also in support.
Thank you very much, and I hope to hear the best!
- Unofficial response: (Please wait for an official response by a staff member)Adding the thread where you let Gamekirby know you're filing for adoption for Staff. Also, it looks like Merrystar wish you also started a discussion for the community on gaining admin rights too (in addition to leaving the founder a message). Once you start that, please update that here with it.
- Update: Alright terrific, thanks for adding your blog for adoption. --Ripto 08:23, March 21, 2016 (UTC)
- Hello. You've made a great start, but the only support on that blog is two users who have never contributed to the wikia. You need the support of the community on that wikia in order to gain administrator rights. Because the existing bureaucrat is not fully inactive this has to be active, stated, support. I suggest you leave a message on the walls of some of the recently active contributors (there is a list at Special:listUsers which can be sorted on date of last edit; anybody editing in the last month is considered active), and request that they comment on your adoption blog.
- Also, just to clarify, you can only receive administrator/sysop rights until GameKirby has been inactive for at least 60 days.
