Any other information:

This wiki was founded in order to rescue a much-loved but abandoned Spenser fan website, Bullets and Beer, from the depths of the Internet Archive. I think Wikia is a great place to put this extensive resource and was happy to see someone had started, but virtually none of the pages had been filled in. I've been gradually adding content and filling in some missing pieces. The original site was extensive and complex and successfully migrating the content to a Wiki format is more involved than just cutting and pasting.

In moving the contents of Bullets & Beer to Wikia, I'm also making some edits intended to align the site better with the idea of an ongoing interactive wiki. I'm adding character overview pages and analyses which weren't present in the original B&B. 

Mostly I would like to be able to better organize the site navigation. I'd also like to more clearly credit the original creators of the site for their contributions, as well as those who added information to the old site - the founders of B&B were scrupulous about properly crediting their contributors.

I've tried contacting the current admin Baylink but not heard back.

I won't finish this project overnight. I will likely fill in content a few pages at a time intermittently, and hopefully others can assist me to do the same. (I've finished 10 of the original 40 book pages in the Spenser series.)

Thanks for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.

Unofficial response: (Please wait for an official response by a staff member)

You need to be active on it for at least a week before you can adopt it. Before today, you haven't edited since April 11th, so keep editing before Staff review this. 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. 23:19, February 7, 2016 (UTC)

Hello. I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights. Good luck with the wikia! -- Wendy (talk@fandom 04:14, February 21, 2016 (UTC)
