The AQworlds Wiki (Declined) Edit

I would like to adopt the AQWorlds wiki since it has been inactive for over a year now and i just edited that site today So i want to adopt that page and make it even better and promise to be active. and also here is the site.

[1] —This unsigned comment is by Klonoa7 (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

The wiki does not look inactive to me -- there's been steady editing by several different editors (although many of them are anonymous). I suggest you keep editing, open a discussion with other users about who should be an admin. and try contacting founder User:Rockhopperharr. If he doesn't respond, staff will be happy to give the admin "mop and bucket" to whoever the community decides should have them. — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 11:00, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
Since you haven't edited the wiki in two weeks, I am closing this request for now. — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 17:13, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

GTA Wiki (Accepted)Edit

I have admin power in GTA Wiki. I want to be a bureaucrat on my wiki because I want to give users powers. --Texel 15:41, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Have you discussed this with User:Yarl? He can give you bureaucrat powers, and last edited only a few weeks ago. Please try contacting him; if he does not respond then we can give you the rights. — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 11:00, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
I see that he has promoted you -- congratulations! — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 22:35, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

H. P. Lovecraft Wiki (Declined) Edit

I'd like to have access to administrative tools to get the H. P. Lovecraft wiki back on track. I messaged the current admin a few days ago but I have yet to receive a response, and as it looks, this user hasn't contributed in a very long time. Vixen Windstorm 17:51, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi Vixen. You've made some nice additions on the Lovecraft Wiki, and it's great that you want to help it out. There is a lot you can do for the wiki as a regular user. However, you were made admin on Dragonball on 1 January, so you do not meet the 60 day requirement for being eligible to adopt. Also you have only been active on the wiki for 2 days which does not meet the adoption criteria above, and only asked the founder about becoming sysop 2 days ago as well; the user has been logged in to wikia recently and thus should see your message. -- Wendy (talk) 02:41, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Oddworld Wiki (Declined)Edit

Dear Wikia staff, Wikis are a unique and extremely useful resource. But only if they are "loved" and maintained by caring users. Oddwiki is seldom used by user or guest. If you check, you will see that my account is top as of now. I love this lonely little wiki, and I wish to adopt it. I have wonderful plans for it that I will follow through on, no matter what. Thank you for your time.

Your passionate supporter, I iz Guy --I iz guy...so iz U 20:38, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Please talk to admin User:Andrettin, who last edited just a couple of days ago -- thanks! — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 11:00, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Home (Declined) Edit

I would like to take over this wiki as i have a playstation 3 and use home. —This unsigned comment is by 78.144.221.162 (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

You need to log in or register an account on Wikia first. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 18:57, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
Did you mean http://playstation.wikia.com/ ? http://home.wikia.com is about the type of home you live in.... You are welcome to edit at either, but neither is eligible for adoption. Please let us know if we have misunderstood your request. — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 11:00, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm quit sure that he's talking about PlayStation Home. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 19:20, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
You're quite right Michael, thanks for pointing that one out. (That's what I get for spending my time on WoW and Wii instead....) Please sign in and start creating some pages, 78, and we will be happy to give you the admin tools once you've begun editing. — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 17:13, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

The Dutch alternative history wiki (Accepted)Edit

This Dutch wiki was abandoned for about eight months when I found it. Now I have started contributing several weeks ago and created several templates. I categerised the exesting pages (which were few) and improved the templates used on the main page (I can't edit the main page itself) which really lookt messy. Now another user has started contributing who has little experience, because of which we now have a relatively large number of pages with wrong names that need to be deleted. I would also like to have direct acces to the main page (there are even spelling errors on that page!). These are the more important reasons for me to make this adoption request. (see nl.althistory.wikia.com). Wigbo 19:43, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

OK, I've made you admin there - Good luck with the project! -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 17:37, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, this will certainly help to keep things going! Wigbo 21:53, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

memory gamma (Declined) Edit

please suggest a wiki that need an some imagination siqar

See Category:Adopt a wiki please. Also see the Creative hub, the Fan fiction hub, and Category:Star Trek. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 14:42, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

希望能夠接管http://zh.china.wikia.com/wiki/ (declined) Edit

目前http://zh.china.wikia.com/wiki/ 沒有其他人在編輯。--Ssddo 15:03, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

You don't need to be an admin to edit there, I see you haven't done so yet. You are very welcome to improve the wiki, but I won't add you as admin at the moment. -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 17:40, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Oddworld wiki (Declined) Edit

It is me again. I talked to the admin you told me to. He/she hasn't said anything yet. So I will ask again: May I adopt this wiki?

Thank you. --I iz guy...so iz U 18:12, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

To leave a message to a user, you want to use their talk page (use the discussion tab at the top of the user page). For the best results, I would suggest that you message him directly on the Oddworld wiki.--Iner22 21:40, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

It's me again I did use the talk page.

Your enthusiasm is great, but the fact still remains that Oddworld wiki is not an inactive wiki. If the currently active admin does not log in or edit for a few months, then you may file another request. However, you currently should leave a RfA on the site.--Iner22 19:03, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

The active admin should be able to discuss this with you... from what I see on his talk page, you haven't actually talked about being added as admin... that's the best thing to do :) -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 17:44, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Red vs. Blue Wiki (Declined)Edit

I'd like to adopt The Red vs. Blue Wiki. I am a huge fan of Red vs. Blue, and the wiki doesn't seem to have any active admin. I've recently been making sustained edits and plan on making more in the future. I also have admin experience: I am a sysop on The Burnout Wiki. I would appreciate it if you considered my request. Thank you, Exlonox 20:27, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi. User:Caboose is the admin for that wiki and is still actively editing. Please talk to him/her about your request. If s/he agrees we can help give you the status. -- Wendy (talk) 16:20, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Caboose recently started editing again. I'll contact him. Thanks, anyway. Exlonox 04:43, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Can i have gaia pedia? (Declined) Edit

it is inactive.

You don't appear to have made any edits at all on that wiki. If you make a significant number of edits, then it's more likely that you will be granted admin powers on that wiki.--Iner22 21:56, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

It's also a pretty active wiki. But you are welcome to get involved there! -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 17:48, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Spawn of Morgoth (not an adoption request) Edit

This wiki would be about all of the evil hordes of Morgoth throughout the Land of Middle Earth from the First Age to the end of the Fourth. May I make this wiki? —This unsigned comment is by Shaolinmonk (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Hi. You can request a new wiki at Requests. This page is for adopting existing wikis. Alternately you might want to look at Lord of the Rings Wiki which should also cover the topic. -- Wendy (talk) 16:38, 20 February 2009 (UTC)


Belgariad Wiki (Accepted) Edit

I, Toon Ganondorf, would like to request an adoption of this Wiki. I've been contributing as much as possible since I discovered it, and there have been no contributions for a long time from anyone else. If you make me a bureaucrat, I will transform this wiki into a masterpiece. Toon Ganondorf (t c)

Looks good, I've set your rights there :) -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 17:55, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Bakugan (Accepted)Edit

I would like to request to adopt this wiki. (Odd as it looks but it seems it has no admins.) --ko (talk) 16:37, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

That's unusual :) But it does have quite a few active editors. I suggest you start a page to discuss new admins and work out between you who should be given the flag -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 17:57, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
I created a forum page for that but nobody replied. --koisuru (talk) 07:27, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
I've added a site notice, let's see if that helps. If it hasn't by the weekend, please let me know and I'll look again. Thanks -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 16:33, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
OK, I've made you admin there. Good luck! -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 19:34, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

The Rare wikia. . . (not an adoption request) Edit

I've been to the Rare wikia, and I'm not sure if the administrator comes on anymore. I'm worried that it will just go to waste. (It doesn't even have a welcome template.) I'm not sure if I'm asking people to help it, but still, I'm worried about it. . . Learner4 17:49, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

It does appear that the admin there hasn't edited in over a year, and hasn't responded to your inquiry about a welcome template. Please keep editing, and if other regular users have no objection, I'll be happy to give the admin tools to you. — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 22:35, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

TV Wikia (Declined)Edit

I noticed the TV Wikas inactive, Ill adopt it a improve it to where it needs to be. - Jdh87 17:47, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

The tag on it appears to be a mistake. User:Merrystar has been active on it recently, and is a very active helper on Central wikia as well. If you would like to be an admin, ask him.--Iner22 18:53, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
The TV wiki is now part of the larger Entertainment wiki -- we welcome your help with it! If you become a helpful and active user you can certainly earn admin rights there. Good luck! — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 22:35, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

West Wing Wiki (Accepted) Edit

I've been working on improving The West Wing Wiki, but it's going to be quite the process. It has a lot of pages, but much of the information is copied directly from Wikipedia and isn't written In Universe. I've started by trying to create pages for minor characters, and starting some better looking and more complete templates.    Willo    talk    contribs    email   00:10, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

You've been doing a great job and we've given you the tools. Good luck! -- Wendy (talk) 20:41, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Coffee wiki (Declined) Edit

It's currently inactive, due to the template posted on the desc. Mobutu4 :| My Talk 05:30, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

RobloxWikia......:)

What about the five other wikis you are admin of? Seems as though adding another might not be a good idea when most of those are inactive... -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 13:35, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

FOTC Wikia (Accepted) Edit

I'd like to put in a request to adopt the Flight of the Conchords Wikia. There have been no sustained editors in the past while, and the admin has been inactive for a very long time. I've begun the process of redesigning the main page, and creating episode, actor, character, and song pages. I've also begun spreading the word on various message boards to spread the word about the wikia. Thank you. --ChristianShephard 20:13, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Looks good, I've set your rights :) I strongly suggest making a user page by the way - show people who you are! Good luck with the project -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 13:48, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
I just checked and It's still not showing rights have been changed. Is this an error on the site and it hasn't taken effect yet? Just wondering since I tried to make edits to the Monaco skin and it didn't allow me to do so. Thanks, I'll also work up a nice design for my userpage as well. ;) --ChristianShephard 19:59, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
Oops, not sure what I did there... please try now (you may need to log in again to see the change). Sorry about that -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 21:40, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Habbo Wikia (Declined) Edit

I'd like to put in a request to adopt the Habbo Wikia. There have been no sustained editors in the past while, and the admin has been inactive for a very long time. Furthermore, vandalism is rampant. I've begun the process of adding wanted pages. I hope you will consider my request. Thank you. Paul H K 11:09, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

It looks like there are a few occasional visitors, so it would be good to get community input on this. I've put up a notice and started a forum topic, perhaps you can add yourself there? Let me know how it goes -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 13:57, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Spongebob Fan (declined) Edit

Spongebob Fanon wiki seems to be boring. I hope I could adopt it, attract moe users and create a better community there. --Alex001 13:02, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

While the wiki is undoubtedly inactive, you have not made any edits there yourself. Please see the adoption criteria at the top of the page and ask again when you meet them. -- Wendy (talk) 20:22, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Wikia Fanfics' request adoption (Accepted) Edit

Hello.

I sent this message in Spanish, but this wasn't answered, so I changed to English.

I want to send this message to propose the adoption of Fanfics, for various reasons (which are written in the petition to adopt).

  • It sole administrator and creator Hothyer2 is inactive. His last edition was on the dates August 1. You can see it here.
  • We have to move some contents that refers to the wiki's fanfics of WikiDex, since a content is irrelevant.
  • I haven't been in any other wiki administrator, while I haven't been blocked by any of them.
  • I have edited and created pages in this wiki, and even I have to improve everything I could as a "user" (not administrator). Even it sales of its content on the cover.
  • I'm writing a template for the welcome influx of new users.
  • The Wiki doesn't have any acts of vandalism among the users.
  • I have created templates to indicate the state or quality of the article.
I hope that the message is read and decide whether or not I am eligible for adoption.

If you have something to say or just stop writing your decision, you can do so in the discussion of this in the Wiki or Wiki in the hope that the adoption (clicking here you can access the discussion of this Wikia).

Sincerely, Koenma (disc.)

OK, I've set your rights there. Don't forget to make a user page for yourself! Good luck with the project -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 14:04, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

The L Word (Withdrawn)Edit

Hey, I would like to adopt [[2]].I think I could greatly improve the pages and get more people to come and contribute to them.

Thanks,Nyah.

You appear to have started your own L Word Wiki a few days ago, so I assume you are no longer interested in the original one. -- Wendy (talk) 20:27, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Request for adoption (Withdrawn)Edit

for the last couple of days i have been around the role play wikia (roleplay.wikia.com).
And it seems the community is completely empty last changes before mine were at 9 February.
So as you can see its not blooming... AT ALL...
I there for place this request in the hope that I can rejuvenate this wiki so it can bloom once again...
(though it doesn't seem like it ever bloomed before)
According to the logs the last serious post the admin made WAY back but this not even close to being active
So I hope for a good solution.
Galaxy-A 10:31, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

ru.wow.wikia.com (Declined) Edit

Requesting bureaucrat status at ru.wow.wikia.com. Seems current bureaucrat is not active. I have already SysOp rights, but for starting to reanimate that forbidden wiki i need bureaucrat level. --drdead 18:34, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

So, what's your answer, mighty staff? --drdead 11:33, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
The current bureaucrat was on the wiki just a few days ago, and there is another active admin on the wiki to consider. The best thing is to talk to both of them and work this out between you. And remember that the bureaucrat flag doesn't give you any extra rights other than making others admin - so you don't need this to edit and improve the wiki. -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 14:08, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

FarCry Wikia (Declined)Edit

Hey Wikia.

I would like to request to adopt the Wikia about the game series "FarCry". The wikia is very inactive and has limited information that can help fans. There have been very few edits this month, and I would like to try and recover it with information from all games, but I cannot do as much as I'd like as the Wiki is not mine. I am a member and active poster on other Wikias (namely "Halopedia")and I would really like to revive this one, especially as there is very little information about the new game that has been out for quite some time.

I must ask, however, as I could see nothing on the page; is this free? I can't do it if it will cost as I am still in high school!

Anzac Spartan: Okay, that made no sense 'till I clicked Edit. Still doesn't really. Canceling request, have a nice day.

There are other active users on this wiki -- if you can agree that you or others should have admin rights, we'll be happy to hand them out. — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 17:13, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Adopt Wiki Tamil Cinema Lovers (Declined) Edit

Hi,

I would like to adopt Tamil Cinema Lovers Wiki. Pls grant me the access.

I don't see that you have made any edits on that wiki. Once you have made a few more edits, feel free to file another request.--Iner22 17:39, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Sulosiva, you have access to the wiki, just edit away! Once you've got going, then you are welcome to come back here to ask for admin rights -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 14:12, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

The Conspiracy Wiki (Accepted) Edit

Hello, I would like to request adoption of the Conspiracy Wiki. It's been neglected by its only admin Jhubert for nearly three years and is meanwhile partly filled with content irrelevant to its topic (example) and subject to vandalism (example 1, 2). I've started two articles in the past two days, contributed to a couple others, and done what I could for maintenance (installed a new category structure, created a couple of templates, including the welcome one, reverted some vandalism). I'm also active in some other Wikia projects, such as TYPE-MOON Wiki, have some 8000 edits on the English Wikipedia, am an admin on the WikiIndex, and administrate a couple of other smaller wikis (mostly self-installed). I hope I'm fit for the task. ^^ --Koveras Alvane 10:37, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

I noticed that the wiki already was "adopted" twice about a year ago but the new admins didn't contribute to it at all, it seems. I promise to be at least slightly more active. ^^ --Koveras Alvane 22:56, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your hard work! We're delighted to have an active admin on a topic that requires an inquisitive mind and something of a sense of humor -- please keep up the good edits and keep an eye on Recentchanges to welcome new visitors. — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 17:13, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Yay, thank you! ^__^ I'll do my best. --Koveras Alvane 17:14, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Coches wiki (Accepted) Edit

Hola Soy Aqui estoy y me gustaria adoptar la Wiki Coches para darle mas vida . Podria ponerle una tabla sobre los motores y mucho mas. Un saludo . --Aqui estoy 19:41, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

OK, all looks good :) -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 14:14, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Spongebob Wiki (declined) Edit

Currently we are getting many many IP edits and a lot of misinformation and what not is being placed in. Our two B'crats/admins are not responding to any emails or messages and the problems box is starting to backlog. Along with a need for blocks. I've tried my best to keep things under control. But there is not a whole lot I can do currently given I have no tools. My credentials have been listed on my user page at the Spongebob Wiki here. I also filed for a request for administrator tools...well that obviously went no where. Rgoodermote  23:42, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Note: I'm asking for both Admin and B'crat to replace the ones we lost. Rgoodermote  03:47, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Hi. The admin, User:AMK152 last edited about a week ago, and you only posted a question to him with your request to be admin two days ago. Please give him a chance to respond; perhaps also you could expand your message to him to indicate some of your concerns. -- Wendy (talk) 16:38, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Fine. But it's unlikely they'll be active and likely I'll be back soon. Happy editing. Rgoodermote  20:39, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Mummy Wikia (Declined) Edit

I've been editing the"The Mummy" Wikia since September of last year and I've seen, since I started there, that the page seems to be very close to being abandoned by its users. There were several other editors in the past, but they seem (for the most part) to be M.I.A. Only Kongisking, the founder of the Wikia, has showed up and he only edited five times (excluding his talk page, which was edited twice) this year. He has responded to only two of the messages that I've left his talk page and I think that his abilities as sysop may be (no offence meant) a bit faltering. Yes, he is the sysop and yes, he does edit, but hardly ever anymore. His halt on edits began, by the looks of it, sometime before I took an account on that Wikia.

Edits by others (be they accounts created or anonymous users) do happen, but they are so few and far between that they don't pose much of a change.

I've edited every single day (by the clock in my time zone) pages, adding as many as I can and tuning up the ones that exist (bit by bit). I have been able to welcome some anonymous users here and there when they show up, but I've also been just as busy with the articles.

While I haven't been entrusted with the position of administrator or sysop elsewhere, I think that I can certainly handle the post here: I would see to it that more users come and edit, and I feel that there's a lot of good besides getting more users that I can do for that Wikia, if only I were given the chance.

--Dr.Chamberlin 04:34, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

It looks like the current admin is at least calling in to read messages... so I'd suggest asking him for admin rights. I see you added some suggestions, but why not offer specifically to help out with admin tasks? Good luck! -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 14:22, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
But there is no administrator for the site, just one sysop and again, he's not showing up. If I ask him for admin rights, it would take a long time for him to get back to me with an answer. I really must insist that I be made admin as the current sysop is sporadic with his responses and edits. I've cleaned up the Wikia, I've contributed a sizable amount of pages there, but as administrator, I, who don't miss editing even once, could do so much more. Besides, he's said so himself on his talk page that he is "not really a tech whiz or anything" (and you can see for yourself [3]), and what's more, there are many other things to cite:
  • he only adds certain pages of certain concepts of the film series on there, not all the articles that there should be
  • his punctuation on pages is often wrong
  • his word usage on pages is too loose
  • he adds silly little captions to images
  • ...and worst of all, he's left many important pages (such as the pages telling about copyrights, article requests, and adminships) blank.
I say this not to defame anyone, but because it's the truth. He's missed out on so much that I've had to not only clean up but fill a number of blanks in. I urge you to reconsider your decision because of what's being done: the Wikia is faltering and I'm essentially the only one fixing it. --Dr.Chamberlin 02:22, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
"admin", "administrator" and "sysop" are the same things on Wikia... just alternative terminology.
Working with others is a key factor in a successful wiki. Which often includes accepting foibles such as "silly little captions". After all, such things can be fun!.. and that's what wikis should be about. It's also about each person doing what they want to, and what they enjoy, and each little bit building the whole. Most of all, working on wikis is about communication. That's why I'm asking you to talk to the admin, to work with him (even if he's not on line much right now) and to work with any other editor on the site. I appreciate your edits on the wiki, but I won't give out admin flags without discussion with the current admin. That's positive, friendly, productive discussion between the two of you. I'm sure once that's happened, he will give you admin rights himself :) -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 16:51, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Pizzapedia (Accepted) Edit

Hello, I would like to adopt Pizzapedia. Thanks! beep21 22:36, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

OK, I've set your rights there. You might consider the newly arrived Devilmanozzy as another admin :) -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 16:38, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Noodapedia (Not an adoption request) Edit

Can I have a Wikipedia for the Cartoon Network Noods! Tommypezmaster 8:07, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

The Requests Wiki is where you should go to request a new wiki.--Iner22 17:36, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Lara Croft Wiki (Accepted)Edit

Hi, There's a Tomb Raider Wiki called Lara Croft Wiki on Wikia. It looks like it's been pretty much abandoned. There's vandalism all over it and it only has 42/43 articles max. I know a lot about Tomb Raider and I want to revive the Wiki. I need to become an Admin on it so that I can completely sort it out. There's pages to be deleted etc. Is there any way I can become one? Klow (Admin on the Combine Overwiki, who corresponded with you several times) will vouch for me! Also you can look at my contributions on the Combine Overwiki which show that i'm a responsible contributor, MattyDienhoff (another Admin on the Combine Overwiki) agrees. Well, thanks. --Donovan-j-charlie 13:40, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

I have created many new pages for the levels of the games and changed the categories of certain articles. Much more to come... --Donovan-j-charlie 23:25, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
What i'm basically asking is: Can I adopt the wiki? --Donovan-j-charlie 18:25, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
Looks great! I have given you the rights, please use them well! — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 17:13, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Star Wars Miniatures Wikia (Accepted)Edit

I've been working on the Star Wars Miniatures Wikia for a while now and have brought the wikia up in looks and content, and would like to adopt the wikia. It would at the least help me bring the wikia out of dumps faster.

Thanks, Darth mavoc 00:19, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

You've put in a lot of hard work over time, and are doing nice things. You might consider using Special:UserRights to share the admin tools with Yoda's Lightsaber as well. Good work! — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 17:34, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks alot! I'll definately ask if he wishes to share them. Thanks again!. Darth Mavoc 21:34, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Darkmoon Faire (Accepted) Edit

Heya! I'm Miraene and I'm writing to ask for admin rights on the Darkmoon Faire wiki.

A little background for you:
This is a wiki for the players on a WoW server called Darkmoon Faire. Recently we decided we needed some kind of archive for our characters, stories, events, guilds and maybe some other stuff as well. I checked Wikia and found that someone had briefly started this wiki a few months ago. Unfortunately he didn't do much with it, and actually as far as I know he doesn't play on our server anymore anyway :( So, I signed up (originally under another username, 'Bixx', but I changed to this one now as everyone ingame knows me as Miraene and I realised being anonymous wasn't a good idea) and started making changes. Some stuff I have done:

  • promoted the wiki on our realm's social forum
  • organized the homepage
  • created new categories
  • written a quick guide to starting a new article for those who are new to wikis
  • created an example character page
  • added as many damn input boxes as I can, to tempt people into writing new articles ;)
  • helped other people with formatting, categories etc.
  • welcomed every user on their talk page
  • asked other editors' permission to take over. I did this on our social forum, so they are now posting their messages of support at my talk page. I'm planning to promote other people to admins if they are interested in helping me run the wiki.

I haven't founded / adopted / been banned from a wiki before.
I am not the only active user on the wiki, since I've been encouraging people to start using it for a couple of weeks now - but so far no one else is interested in becoming an admin.

Well, I think that's everything! Thanks for reading! --Miraene (talk) 16:56, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Excellent work! Lovely to see such devotion and support for a new admin. Keep doing the right things! — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 17:34, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much for dealing with my request so quickly :D *scurries off* -- Miraene (talk) 17:34, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Zane-802 (Declined) Edit

I want to adopt a wiki to improve the Wikia website.

I'm sorry but you'll have to specify which wiki you want to adopt, then you have to be actively editing for a number of days on that wiki or you will be likely to get declined.--Iner22 17:33, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
Please check out Category:Adopt a wiki please. — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 17:34, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

High School Musical Wiki (Declined)Edit

Someday i would love to become an Admin here as i have noticed you are short if you would like to me let me know and i will do my best. i know my way around Wiki's forms as i have been editing pages for about 10 years know on my talk page cheers --Troy2009 11:54, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

HSM is an active wiki with active admins, so it's not eligible for adoption -- however there's a ton you can do to improve the wiki and they may need more admins in the future. Please join in and start helping! — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 17:34, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Literae Wiki (Accepted)Edit

Looking for a wikia devoted to the literature in Italian, I've found references to this wiki from the main wikia in other languages.

This wikia was created but left immediately, no content was provided for it, and i would like to adopt it and then organize a small group to increment its contents.

I'm trying to organize it in a creative way, not just like another forum to discuss book readings, but as a reference and a resource to explore theories, curiosities, contemporary, philosofical approach to the culture and the art of writing. (Bankabbestia)

Excellent work -- we're glad to have you as a new admin! — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 17:34, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Azumanga Daioh Wiki (Accepted)Edit

Hi. I would like to adopt this Wiki because the Head hasn't been active in months and I was hoping to be a B.crat or admin there and take over (I tried asked a while bacxk no reply.) I think I meet the requirments and hope that I can be a B.crat or admin at Azumanga Daioh Wiki. --☆Coolピカチュウ! 00:14, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Great work over the last couple of weeks -- I'm giving you the rights now. 17:34, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Admin (declined) Edit

Can I become an admin of Godzilla.Wikia,com?

I know everything about Godzilla and if you look on angelas talk page there is my full request. Thank You —This unsigned comment is by Troycool (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Hi. I'm glad you're excited about Godzilla Wiki. It looks like the admin User:Lordofmonsterisland has been active on the Godzilla wiki in the last couple of days. Please give him the chance to respond to your request. For active wikis it is up to the existing community to choose who to promote to admin status. -- Wendy (talk) 19:42, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
