What is your username? Lanclot Rice
Please link to the wiki here: http://universaltriumvirate.wikia.com/wiki/Universal_Triumvirate_Wiki
How many edits have you made on that wiki? 772
How many days/months have you been editing there? The last three years since April 15th, 2013
On the Special Pages → Special:ListUsers when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? Myself, Lanclot Rice, today, as well as my friend Graknopia. The last sysop to edit besides us was Edward Stenbach on December 29, 2015.
Any other information: My wikia is a part of a government, and recently we underwent a depression, of which I emerged as the leader and only have basic administrator rights to our wikia. Right now I can only perform basic administrator tasks and whatnot, but if I intend to do this long term, I need to have Bureaucrat status to effect more change on our wiki and repel vandalism easier. To whomever is reading this, it may seem weird to you that our wikia is based around a government (it was weird for me to get into at first, I know), but the remaining few of us would really appreciate your help. Any help would be appreciated.
Ok, first, I think you need to have the questions there, so I put them in here for you. Second, I don't think you're allowed to post personal information like your email. Third, unfortunately, I don't think you can promote yourself to bureaucrat because it hasn't been two months since the last bureaucrat edited on there, so you're going to have to message those bureaucrats to promote you. And advice: do you seriously need 15 admins? If you do get promoted, I suggest you demote at least half of them. No wiki needs that many admins. Good luck!--Annabeth and Percy~The present is our future past, we've gotta make this moment last right now. 03:03, January 30, 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick Response! I appreciate how active and willing to help you are :) I've been emailing those with Bureaucratic power since around January 15th to no response. Part of the problem we had was losing around half of our membership base, which included the sysops and bureaucrats, and now there are only about 2 of us left that can regularly edit. Also, I was planning on removing most of them :P Our wiki has a long history with a bunch of leaders, etc etc, and we traditionally grant them bureaucratic status for security purposes. I realize that 15 is a heinous number, and I'll be sure to cut down on that right away. Thanks! --03:07, January 30, 2016 (UTC)
- Unofficial response: (Please wait for an official response by a staff member)Two bureaucrats have edited within the last 60 days which means the wiki currently isn't up for adoption. As well as two admins have edited within the last 60 days as well. Have you tried contacting the two bureaucrats about gaining rights on the wiki itself? If they are ignoring you, you may try starting a public discussion on the wiki about you adopting the wiki to gain bureaucratic rights. You will need support from both the recently active admins and the community. --Ripto 17:57, February 4, 2016 (UTC)
- Hello. Just to clarify, the only thing bureaucrats can do that admins cannot is promote/demote other users; bureaucrat rights will not help you "effect change" (unless you mean new leadership) nor "repel vandalism easier". That said, Annabeth and Percy is correct - the wikia is not eligible for full adoption until next month, when the bureaucrats will have been inactive for 60 days. Please feel free to ask again at that time. You will need to have the support of the other admin and the community to gain the additional rights. -- Wendy (talk) 04:42, February 15, 2016 (UTC)
