This page is where you can request administrator and/or bureaucrat rights on communities without an active admin and/or bureaucrat team. Communities can only be adopted by an active community member, though, so before you post your request please be sure you meet the Adoption guidelines.

Existing admins will be removed only if they have been inactive for more than one year.

Please note that official wikis (e.g. Community Central, VSTF Wiki, etc...) are never eligible for adoption.

Please allow a minimum of one week for a response to your adoption request. Official responses will come from Wendy, who will look at requests in the order they were received. We look forward to having you adopt one of our communities!

Adoption guidelines
  • Is the wiki inactive?
  • No sustained editing by other users. If there are other users please start a blog post or other public discussion of new leadership before making your request and allow users at least a week to respond.
  • Admins have been inactive for 60 days or more
  • Are you eligible to adopt?
  • You have not adopted another community in the last month
  • You are not currently blocked on another Fandom project
  • Are you contributing to the wiki's content?
  • You have edited content pages on the wiki for at least a week (the more the better)
  • You have created at least one new page (the more the better)
  • You are currently editing
  • Are you building the community?
  • You make an effort to talk to other users -- you've left friendly and encouraging messages on user talk pages and responded to questions on article talk pages, forums, or blogs.
  • You keep the wiki looking well-tended and up to date -- update news sections, add new pictures and videos related to the topic, etc.
