Adoption requests Planet Explorers Wiki

What is your username? Rahlzel

Please link to the wiki here:

How many edits have you made on that wiki? 2

How many days/months have you been editing there? Almost 1 year ago.

On the Special Pages → Special:ListAdmins when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? 2013, VitaminK7 - the founder. Judging by his logs, he never made any other admins.

Any other information: You can see several other users (including myself) disappointed in the way this wiki has been handled in the main talk page, mainly because it was locked and then forgotten about.

I also realize that I'm an unlikely candidate as my number of edits is pathetically low. What you might not be immediately aware of is that I'm a very capable wiki editor. I've already vastly improved main pages on several other wikis over the years. The Miasmata Wiki, the StarMade wiki (I just noticed that horrible logo placement in the top-left. That wasn't me. Grr.) the Subnautica Wiki, the Space Station Colonial Marines Wiki. I've also made several templates using the ParserFunctions extension.

If all you need to know is whether or not the Planet Explorers Wiki will be in better hands in my care, then that's good, because that's what I have to offer.

Thank you.

Hello - there appears to be several other contributors at this wiki. According to the adoption guidelines, it is required that the adopting user make a blog/forum post/announcement of some sort explaining their intentions to adopt on an active wiki, so other users on the wiki can give their input, and comment. Be sure to link it when you are done, and let it run for 1 week. If there is a consensus amongst the users for you to receive the rights, then you'll be eligible to adopt.
Also, in order to adopt the wiki, you will need to edit there regularly, every day or two for at least a week. Try to edit from now on, and by the time this request is viewed by Staff, you should meet the requirement.

Hello. Joseph is correct. In order to adopt the wikia you will need to edit there regularly, every day or two, for at least a week. I have lowered the mainpage protection so you can work on that page, but please also contribute to the content, including the creation of at least one new page. The discussion you have already started on the talk page for the main page is sufficient for letting the other users there know you plan to adopt the wikia. Let me know on my wall when you have edited for a week. -- Wendy (talk@fandom 05:47, March 7, 2015 (UTC)
No problem. Thanks for removing the front page protection. To be perfectly honest, that should be all I need. I don't need to adopt it in order to work on it now :). --Rahlzel (talk) 07:01, March 7, 2015 (UTC)
