Adoption requests Tiny Dice Dungeon (2)

What is your username? tak15

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

How many edits have you made on that wiki? 425

How many days/months have you been editing there? 5 months

On the Special Pages → Special:ListUsers when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? Vsouza's last real edit/contribution was June 21st. He responded to the previous adoption query on Sept 9th and said he cannot promote anyone.

Any other information:

Vsouza said "only Tinydice (the wiki founder) can promote you. As far as I can tell myself and the other admins are currently not active here anymore. Thanks for your contributions" in response to Tompej's previous request. Neither he, nor the other admins have been done anything in the wiki since June or earlier. We're coming under spam/vandalism again from the same offender -- the 4th time and I obviously lack the power to do anything about this other than tediously edit pages he's vandalised. I'd like to apply for myself to gain adminship, and to have the ability to grant others the same privilege, as I'd promote Tompej as well for being an even more active contributor than myself at times. I do not want the responsibility solely on myself, but I don't want to see all of our hard work just sitting there ready to be disrupted anymore. Our candidates for deletion have remained stagnant as well, only increasing in number over time.

I've made aforum post (I think, not sure how wikia handles it) today, but there are not many contributors, so discussion will likely remain stagnant during the week or so required.

Hello, Tak15. Although it is indeed true that the founder is inactive, today an answer was given on the original adoption request that was made by Tonpej. Here is what Merrystar stated: Hello. I will close the request then. Please feel free to ask again if you change your mind, or you can have Vsouzas ask on my wall to promote you. As you said, Tompej is now inactive but this can still apply to you. Keep working on the wiki and ask Vsouzas to request your promotion on Merrystar´s wall. Good Luck. (The Great Lord David (talk) 09:23, September 20, 2014 (UTC))

If you need help in dealing with a spammer/vandal while waiting to receive administrator powers, contact the VSTF at their wiki. Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)

I believe these IPs are the ones responsible for the vandalism over the last month or two and given their similar misspellings, they appear to be the same person.

I've contacted VSTF via IRC, but haven't received any responses yet. The latest vandal is still active. At the very least, can we please require registered users (preferrably with an email) to be the only ones allowed to make edits and create new pages? Vsouzas is inactive and somehow saw the request, but nothing else came of it. Tompej is not an administrator and simply gave up on adopting the wiki because he thought our issues would be resolved, but the fact of the matter is that we still have not had any administrative action in 4 months. -tak15

Hello, Tak15. Good work with contacting the VSTF. Although even they can´t provide immediate responses, however they are known to be quick and your answer should be coming very soon. However, I don´t seem to understand what you mean with "At the very least, can we please require registered users (preferrably with an email) to be the only ones allowed to make edits and create new pages?". Can you explain this part? Thank you. (The Great Lord David (talk) 21:50, September 20, 2014 (UTC))

He wants to disable anonymous editing. But, that is usually done if there are large amounts of vandals, and the community agrees to it. Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)

 Tompej and I have been made admins; I'd like to close the request. Thank you.

As Joseph stated, anonymous contributors are disabled only certain conditions and such your request might be denied. However, if you feel need to do so, you may present your request using this. Just make sure to present that discussion Joseph mentioned. (The Great Lord David (talk) 17:29, September 23, 2014 (UTC)) 
Good luck with the wikia! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 02:48, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
