Any other information: I would be happy if you gave it to either myself or Albert Noniem who is very active.I am a Bureaucrat on several other wikis wildecoyote Howdy Pardner leave a message here  15:15,5/21/2016 

Unofficial response: (Please wait for an official response by a staff member)
Did you talk to Albert Noniem about him becoming an admin alongside you? I can't find any conversation between you two about it, so I'd suggest you do contact him and leave a link to that conversation here. Other than that, you look good. Just make sure you continue to edit at least once a day before Staff review this. Good luck!--Annabeth and Percy~The present is our future past, we've gotta make this moment last right now. 16:12, May 21, 2016 (UTC)

I just sent Albert Noniem a message of his wall about the adoption http://sex-gangsters.wikia.com/wiki/Message_Wall:Albert_Noniem wildecoyote Howdy Pardner leave a message here  09:57,5/22/2016 

Hello. I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights. Good luck with the wiki! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 05:00, June 3, 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Wendy
I'll check with Albert Noniem if he wants any rights and will grant them to him as well
Thanks again
Albert

After I told Wildecoyote that I do not think it is a good idea to adopt our wiki, nobody bothered to ask me or the other active users. Finding this page could have been easy, but the grant of rights didn't link to it.
I think Wildecoyote will be a rather good bureaucrat, but I doubt they will be a very good bureaucrat: they already are "Bureaucrat on several other wikis" and the topic of our wiki is a rather time-consuming freemium game.
Our community has various valuable contributors, some did grunt work, others researched; together we made a useful wiki. I think all of us should have been asked about the adoption. --Albert Noniem (talk) 21:02, June 17, 2016 (UTC)
This request is completed, so staff will not look at it anymore. If you have an issue with an adoption, notify Merrystar on her wall. --Tupka217 20:59, June 17, 2016 (UTC)
How will that help? She has already decided that our input wasn't needed. -Albert Noniem (talk) 21:12, June 17, 2016 (UTC)
Also, I can't write on her wall, nor on Wildecoyote's wall on our wiki. --Albert Noniem (talk) 01:00, June 18, 2016 (UTC)


I happened to see this post. You were asked on your wall about either Wldecoyote or you adopting the wiki and didn't answer for nearly two weeks before the rights were given out. I cannot see anywhere else that you discussed the matter or told him you didn't approve of him adopting, but if I missed it that was an oversight and not a lack of interest in the input of other active community members. People who adopt wikis are required to message any other active contributors either directly or by posting a blog. If the people don't respond after a reasonable amount of time then it is assumed they either don't care, or at least don't object.
If you can't post on walls then that is something you should report to Special:Contact as a bug. But you could also have left a message on my wall here. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 01:26, June 18, 2016 (UTC)
Maybe I was asked (please note that w:c:sex-gangsters:Thread:8833 was deleted when you answered), but I am not the community. I was asked whether adoption would be a good idea (not told about a plan to take over our wikia) and I studied the documentation about adoption before answering. Let me quote Adoption:Requests: "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." Since there was no public discussion, I don't think that two weeks is an unreasonable delay. I had to think about several things:
  • Is adoption a good idea? I wasn't (and am not) aware of a problem that would be solved by an adoption.
  • Who would be a good bureaucrat? Not me, because even one of "friendly, precise, concise" is hard for me, all three is almost impossible. Others aren't active anymore, or have only recently started to edit.
  • How should we organize the elections? Who may vote?
To summarize: a lot of fuzz with no apparent gain.
I tried to post on your wall here. That took me some time and wikia didn't give an error message and doesn't show my post either. I somewhat resent being called a liar.
I can't describe the bug very well. Sometimes I can post, often I can't; but always?, often? I can edit my own posts. Since I am here to add content, the bug doesn't bother me too much. --Albert Noniem (talk) 05:40, June 20, 2016 (UTC)
