This page is where you can request administrator and/or bureaucrat rights on communities without an active admin and/or bureaucrat team. Communities can only be adopted by an active community member, though, so before you post your request please be sure you meet the Adoption guidelines.
Existing admins will be removed only if they have been inactive for more than one year.
Please allow a minimum of one week for a response to your adoption request. Official responses will come from Wendy or Joe, who will look at requests in the order they were received. We look forward to having you adopt one of our communities!
Want to help out an abandoned community? Please check out Adopt-a-Wiki for a list of wikis in need of new admins.

No sustained editing by other users. If there are other users please start a blog post or other public discussion of new leadership before making your request and allow users at least a week to respond.
