Adoption requests Space Marine Wiki

What is your username? TheTLMguy

Please link to the wiki here: Space Marine Wiki

How many edits have you made on that wiki?  12

How many days/months have you been editing there? March 31, 2016. Actually, many pages are done; maybe some cleanups could be useful but I haven't seen anything special so far. Coming from the Ace Combat Wiki, where admins are active (almost) every day and many users post multiple times everyday, the Space Marine Wiki is a desert.

On the Special Pages → Special:ListAdmins when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? Unknown Primarch - 12/20/2013 

Any other information: there has been little to no activity on Space Marine Wiki, and some users left offensive comments knowing no Admin was there to remove such posts. The Wiki could use an Admin until Primarch returns or the game becomes totally forgotten.

NOTE: there is also the "Warhammer 40,000" wiki, which covers the whole game universe. The "Space Marine" wiki is related only to the console/pc game (according to its game Director, the game takes place in an alternative timeline). However, I wonder if those wiki should be merged...

You'll have to make actual edits on pages for at least a week before you can adopt it. So make sure you continue to edit at least once a day, as well as make at least one page, before Staff review this. It looks like there are a couple of active users on there, so you'll need to make at least a blog or a forum to let them know that you're attempting to adopt the wiki and get their opinion on it. You should also post a link to it as well. Other than that, you look good. Good luck!--Annabeth and Percy~The present is our future past, we've gotta make this moment last right now. 20:38, April 7, 2016 (UTC)

Any news? There has been only 1 reply to my Blog, and overall 1~2 more comments in the whole wiki. I have also started to create a special Template for a page; another thing is that now there are no more pages without a category.

If I can add to this you need to have more than nine edits on the wiki, also you need to make pages, and add a better description in order to better your chances, I mean there are a couple of good users on that wiki and whose to say there won't be question on there chances too.

It seems I can't make the point clear enough: the Wiki I would like to adopt doesn't need a 24 hours daily control. Most, if not everything, related to the game has been created and written since Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine is a 2011 game. The Space Marine Wiki is just abandoned, and it could really use someone to follow it. If there is a better candidate out there, I am ready to cancel my request, otherwise I don't see why so much time is needed. As for other users, a visitor "spammed" a message 7 hours ago; the previous action performed by someone who is not myself dates back to 04/10/2016. And only a visitor read my Blog... TheTLMguy.

Hello. They were correct that you do need to edit, a little bit, on a regular basis. It doesn't need to take a lot of time. This is true for an adoption regardless of the size or activity on a wikia. Likewise if there is activity from other contributors there needs to be a blog or public post about the adoption, but it is ok if whoever is around chooses to ignore it.
I've given you the rights. Good luck with the wiki! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:45, April 22, 2016 (UTC)
