Adoption requests Waterloo Road Wiki (3)

Username: Soapslover96

Wikia URL: http://waterlooroad.wikia.com/wiki/Waterloo_Road_Wiki

Current edit count: 173

How long I have edited there: NOVEMBER 23, 2013

Last admin to edit and when: Fubsadoo,June 8, 2010

Other information: All of the Admins on here last logged in and edited in 2010 so this page has had no Admin keeping check on this wiki for nearly 4 years. If you gave me the honour of becoming the Admin on this wiki I would be more than happy to.

I have kept the Casualty Wiki in order since I have taken that Wiki over about 1 month ago now. That is what I will plan to do with this Wiki aswell.

Please could you get back to me asap Thank You

This is the third Waterloo Road adoption you started. Both previous were closed, because you did not make a blog post where people can express their opinion on you becoming an admin. However, this is all moot - this month, you have made adoption requests for 3 wikis, one of which is going to be denied, and one of which probably isn't. You can only adopt one wiki per calendar month. --Tupka217 14:22, March 26, 2014 (UTC)

Actually, The Casualty request is void since the local B'crat gave you Rights, so it no longer counts toward the Per30 for Adoptions. Family Guy is ineligible, so also will not count.
However, the kicker is that you are currently blocked on at least one wiki (Family Guy), which invalidates your eligibility to adopt. Even though it is currently set to expire April 1st, that is cutting it rather close. Plus, even if that block drops in time, if you have one block you may have another and Staff will see it. So if you do have more blocks you know of, you should either work on trying to resolve them, or wait them out if short enough. --Love Robin (talk) 17:48, March 26, 2014 (UTC)

Hi this is the blog that I posted on the Waterloo Road wiki. I done it last week and still on 1 person has replied to the blog. http://waterlooroad.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Soapslover96/About_Soapslover96.

Love Robin: Yes, that is listed, however, Staff does not typically go hunting to see whether you were blocked on a wiki or not. It is usually ignored in most cases. City♥Lights45px-Wikia_Logo.svg.png 14:11, March 30, 2014 (UTC)

Actually, they *do* check if an adoptee is blocked on other wikis. It is part of the criteria for adoption. Second line in the table…
Are you eligible to adopt? … You are not currently blocked on another Wikia project
Your Family Guy block drops on April 1st, which should be before this is evaluated. Hope Family Guy is your only one. Good luck. --Love Robin (talk) 17:36, March 30, 2014 (UTC)

Do they look at the nature of the block, though? Because... that block expires April 1st... 2018. (I didn't notice that before either). --Tupka217 17:48, March 30, 2014 (UTC)

An adoptee can ask for a block to be reviewed for the circumstances in which it was made, and if found to be trivial can be overlooked although not necessarily overturned. This is best done quietly through Special:Contact. Provide all links to the situation. Do so ASAP to avoid this being either placed On Hold or Closed.
My personal opinion, which is not necessarily that of Staff's, is your last edit on Family Guy was true as FG is shown on BBC networks although *I* would have asked permission to apply an interwiki template to a wiki's main page. Also *I* think the blocking admin, Buckimion, has too hair a trigger on his banhammer. Understand that you may not get that FG block overturned, but Staff may not hold it against you for Adoptions. Good luck with that. --Love Robin (talk) 12:04, April 1, 2014 (UTC)
I doubt the block requirement is an absolute rule. I'm indefinitely blocked on one wiki that I know of, does that make me a potentially bad admin? I'd certainly hope not. The circumstances of the block should always be taken into account in my opinion. Was it for vandalism? For abusive behaviour? Or perhaps something viewed as a big problem on one wiki that's a minor transgression elsewhere? Cqm 00:43, 6 Apr 2014 (UTC)
Hi, no I wouldn't call it vandalism because all I did was add the BBC template to the homepage then next I'm blocked, but surely if they don't want that then they can protect the page like I do. Also there was no abusive behaviour at all. I would just like to know whats taking so long to become admin on Waterloo Road wiki as I have been on it and the homepage has nothing on it. D Sage

The guideline is Requests take about 7 to 10 days not including weekends. You opened this March 26th so the timing is right as this is now at the top of the queue and will be the first evaluated when Staff resumes probably Monday. Have you Special:Contacted about your block so it has already been reviewed? If not, then when Merry reviews this for the first time, there is a chance you may be placed On Hold while she looks deeper. --Love Robin (talk) 09:13, April 6, 2014 (UTC)
I have asked the person about unblocking me as I hardly done a thing and he replied saying no. D Sage —This unsigned comment is by Soapslover96 (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
Which is not the only thing I've seen about that admin lately. --Tupka217 10:40, April 6, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry I don't understand what you mean. —This unsigned comment is by Soapslover96 (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
I mean it's not the first time I've seen that admin give a block that I would deem exorbitant. As Robin said, Buckimion is a bit triggerhappy with the bans. He's allowed to, but I wouldn't do it. --Tupka217 12:19, April 6, 2014 (UTC)


Just to clarify, I always review all current blocks on a user account as part of the adoption process. Cqm is correct though, that a local block does not automatically disqualify someone from adopting and the details of the block matter as well.
In this case Soapslover96, you are no longer blocked so it is a moot point. I have given you admin and bureaucrat rights. Good luck with the wikia! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:44, April 8, 2014 (UTC)
