Adoption requests That's So Raven Wiki (2)

Request #1Edit

What is your username? TomWelling

Please link to the wiki here: http://thatssoraven.wikia.com/wiki/

How many edits have you made on that wiki? 4 but I'm currently editing it

How many days/months have you been editing there? 17/7/2013

On the Special Pages → Special:ListUsers when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? The only admin is Vinny2 and she/he last edited on July 28 2008. http://thatssoraven.wikia.com/wiki/Special:ListUsers/sysop

Any other information: There is another That's So Raven Wiki: http://thatssoravenbaxter.wikia.com/wiki/That%27s_So_Raven_Wiki but in that Wiki, there's on 15 articles. The wiki that I would like to adopt has 300+ articles. So, I would like to get that Wiki deleted.

Unofficial response: (Please wait for an official response by a staff member)
Another adoption request has been filed for this wiki: Adoption:That's So Raven. That one is also pending a response. A forum discussion has been created about the adoption of the wiki. Thisismyrofl (talk) 02:26, July 30, 2013 (UTC)

What is your username?

Please link to the wiki here:

That's So Raven Wiki

How many edits have you made on that wiki?

19, including New Page, Category:Cory in the House Characters

How many days/months have you been editing there?

1 month… correcting massive vandalism, confirm with Staff User:Semanticdrifter

On the Special Pages → Special:ListUsers when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it?

Vinny2 09:29, July 28, 2008 (5 years, 1 day ago)

Any other information:

You may confirm with Staff User:Semanticdrifter. Last month in following and reverting the cross-wiki vandalism activities of now-blocked AddisonHall, which started in my usual haunt, the Kim Possible Wiki, and led me through Geek Charming Wiki to finally end up at the That's So Raven Wiki.

I spent hours reverting the worst and most obvious of the vandalism I could find with casual perusals, as well as monitoring since. I contacted Wikia Support for initial and follow-up help, provided each time by User:Semanticdrifter on the various Wikis with vandals(who may have been the same user with alternate account as the edits where the same). In fact it was User:Semanticdrifter who advised me to seek adoption so I could better maintain against vandalism on my own.

I don't know if this counts as "adopted a wiki within the past month", but the Admin on record with Geek Charming, themselves inactive on that wiki for several years, gave me Admin of Geek Charming just the other week.

However if that is an issue, with the recent run of vandalism, I ask that an exception be considered.

Another adoption request has been filed for this wiki: Adoption:That's So Raven wiki. That one is also pending a response, however TomWelling didn't seem to keep up the rate of contributions so it looks like they'll be turned down.
A forum discussion has been created about the adoption of the wiki. Thisismyrofl (talk) 02:26, July 30, 2013 (UTC)
Yes, *I* started that forum page. I made a response since your visit. I'll repeat it here:
"By both of the users who've posted in this thread." …Uhm, excuse me, what "both"? There has been only ONE poster in (that) thread and on (that) Forum page. Me.
I'm sorry, and all due respects to User:TomWelling, but I don't see where he followed the first basic steps of the Adoption Process. I came (to the That's So Raven Wiki) at least two weeks prior to him on the trail of a vandal and made major corrective edits and reverted vandalism. TomWelling did not even revert the vandalized "That's So MrSirRaven" page, instead moving it intact to the Home Page; check his contributions. I made the attempt to contact Admin User:Vinny2 via his Talk Page, waiting a week for a reply. I started (the) Forum Page asking who was active (there) and interested. I waited a week. I see nothing where TomWelling made the same efforts to follow the instructions of the Adoption Request page.
In Addition, I consistently monitored (that) wiki and reverted vandalism performed by now-blocked User:Corybaxter in a timely fashion. Even going so far as to contact Support for help in dealing with him, to which User:Semanticdrifter responded. while I cannot say Tom did not make the effort to contact Support, I know *I* did.
In short, *I* followed the steps of the Adoption process, *I* vigorously monitored and maintained (the That's so Raven)wiki from Vandals.

I hope this is not too argumentative, or seemingly petty. I ask again that you check with and confirm with User:Semanticdrifter as to our interactions in the past month. Granted he helped me with more than one wiki (That's So Raven and Geek Charming), but it was the same issue.
I hope you'll take all the above into consideration for this Adoption.

Okay... I made a mistake in reading that forum thread, and I thought that two users had written it. Nobody is 100% free from errors, and I made one today. =\
I am not doubting your eligibility to adopt this wiki. I was merely linking to the other request, because it is worth notice that there are two in existence. You can see that I downplayed the other user's eligibility, and I see no reason why your request would be turned down. I do not decide requests, so I am always careful not to make predictions for the adoption team unless I'm 100% sure they're true. Thisismyrofl (talk) 04:20, July 30, 2013 (UTC)
Fair enough. I appreciate your efforts.

ResponseEdit

Hi.

Robin -- Your contributions look good and thank you for starting the Forum. I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights.

Tom -- Your contributions look ok, but most of them were made the day you created this request and you have not either contacted Robin and/or commented on her forum post. If you find you have more time to be active on the wiki there perhaps you can talk to her about gaining admin rights.

Good luck with the wiki! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 03:50, July 31, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you! --Love Robin (talk) 04:35, July 31, 2013 (UTC)

Merge?Edit

Oh, Tomwelling's section above mentions another That's so Raven Wiki which only has a few pages and has not seen any activity since Jan2012. Is it possible to Merge it with mine? --Love Robin (talk) 11:46, July 31, 2013 (UTC)

Hey, this request is filed under "completed requests" and thus very likely to be overlooked by Staff.
If the itty bitty wiki in question had very little content, you could probably Special:contact/general and they'd just close it and redirect the URL. But since there's some content, you should go over the process listed at Help:Merging wikis. Thisismyrofl (talk) 11:59, July 31, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks once again. --Love Robin (talk) 01:45, August 1, 2013 (UTC)
