How many edits have you made on that wiki? I have made 366 edits (at the time of submitting this request). I'm currently trying to upload episode summaries when I have the time, as well as adding pictures and character biographies. I have also been rewriting some of the articles, as many are rather poorly written, or really should be categorized as stubs. I have also standardized the format of several different types of articles (i.e. episodes, characters) and added infoboxes and pictures to many articles.

How many days/months have you been editing there? I've been on the wiki since February 26 of this year. I had a short time when I went a bit inactive for about a week with fewer edits, but that was the week that I had grad school midterms, so I did not have as much time available to make edits.

On the Special Pages → Special:ListAdmins when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? There are two bureaucrats for this community (I did not see anyone with only admin priviledges). ☀Seeker11299 is one, and while they last logged in on Jan 29 of 2016, they haven't made an edit since Jan 10, 2014. I can't seem to find any other admins, or active users on the site. Thunderbolt87 is the other bureaucrat, and they last logged on on January 3, 2016. They only have one edit on the entire wiki, and it was on July 23, 2013.

Any other information: I have not seen any other users editing since I have joined the wiki. I appear to be the only person who is actively doing any editing for the last month, and there are some things that I would like to clean up (one issue is that it appears that someone has added some one sentence articles with many categories to get the "adding categories achievement, and many of these pages probably should be consolidated into one page).

These are two example pages (each page is one sentence and has five categories that really should be consolidated into one to two categories)

There is also a duplicate article that needs to be deleted that has been bugging me since I first started. While the theme and overall look of the wiki is fine, the front page could also probably use a slight facelift, and it is currently locked from anyone editing.

The admins appear to have not visited the wiki in over a year. I originally joined the wiki looking for more information on a certain episode as I couldn't remember a certain character's name, only to realize that only two or three of the 30-some odd episodes have a page, so I created pages for all of the episodes.

A previous editor (I don't know who) also had a habit of pretty much copy and pasting some of the content from the Gerry Anderson Encylopedia on what little they had on this tv show on that wiki onto this one, with very little modification. While I understand it was an easy way to expand the wiki, it left this wiki with little identity, and I have been currently trying to rewrite some of these articles so that they differ enough from the Gerry Anderson one. Also, many of these pages are not very detailed, so the original articles were little better than stubs. A prime example of this "borrowing" from the GA wiki is the "The Golden Sea" episode page, which is one I have not had a chance to rewrite yet as the episode summaries take a lot more time. I have been using the title cards in a similar manner in the infoboxes as the GA Encylopedia, however I have been uploading those images myself to the stingray wiki after I have captured them from the original episodes-they are not copied from the GA wiki.

The Golden Sea example I was talking about:

Hello. Your contributions look great and I love that you are trying to expand out/replace the copied stub content. I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights. Good luck with the wiki! -- Wendy (talk@fandom 03:32, March 25, 2017 (UTC)
