The Football Wiki (Accepted)Edit

Hi, i wish to adopt The Football Wiki as i cant see no active admins there. I am an admin on Pro Wrestling and International cricket so i know what needs to be done to get people editing. Regards Dean27 17:58, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

Hello, I have given you admin and buearucrat rights. Enjoy, Sarah@fandom (talk 22:57, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Mass Effect Fanon Wiki (Accepted)Edit

I would like to adopt the Mass Effect Fanon Wiki-http://massfanon.wikia.com/wiki/Mass_Effect_Fanon_Wiki. It has been inactive for a long time, none of the users even have articles. I've created three articles and I've also made several categories. This website needs an active bureaucrat and administrator and I believe that I can provide both. I think I can turn the Mass Effect Fanon wiki into a great community. Thank you for your consideration.--BluethunderTalk 21:47, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

I have given you the rights. Happy editing! Sarah@fandom (talk 22:59, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Cineastas Wiki (Accepted)Edit

Hello Staff, I created this wiki, I would appoint my privilege to work as a bureaucrat and administrator of this wiki.

The sysop and bureaucrat User:Jdenial never works, please remove the bureaucratic and administrative privileges.

Thank very much.- --Csuarezllosa (Em@il) 05:36, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

I've done both, please keep up the good work. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 08:15, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Sly Cooper Wiki (Accepted) Edit

Hey I'm Ace Infinity from the Sly Cooper Wiki, I recently made a request for adminship before, but had to make more contributions to the wiki, well I'm doing all in the power I have as a regular user to stop vandilism in the wiki, and there is an unregistered user that is putting false and created information in the wiki, and I'm trying my best to stop him. So I would like another request from adminship so I can stop vandilism in the wiki and keep it what it was made for, facts and truth on the Sly Cooper Wiki.

Please accept(again).

--Ace Infinity 23:33, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Good work, I've given you the rights -- please use them well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 08:15, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

DeviousMUD Wiki (Accepted) Edit

[http://deviousmud.wikia.com/wiki/DeviousMUD_Wiki DeviousMUD Wik ]

I noticed this wiki today and found out that it was in dire repair. The front page was horrid, the information was misleading, and it was in total shambles. I would like to adopt this wiki and the rights to it, for i feel that it is in need of desperate help. I currently working on it but it would be helpful if I could adopt it into full health. It also hasn't been edited before me for quite some time, making it also outdated. It would be very gracious if whoever is in charge here gave me adoption rights to this wiki. Thank You...Sirnot 02:48, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I've given you the rights, please help the wiki grow! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 08:18, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Code Lyoko Wiki (Declined) Edit

http://codelyoko.wikia.com

I have made a few pages, fixed mispells, redirected pages to the correct name. May I adopt it? --The Gem Foxcoon Trio Emerald Ruby Sapphire! 14:10, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Sapphire, it looks like you are fairly new there, and there are some other active users on the wiki who should have a say -- perhaps start by talking to Umagic65 about who should gain admin rights on the wiki? — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:58, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

ItalianWikicity (Declined) Edit

I wish here sysop and bureaucrat rights, the project was abandoned by administrators for more than 60 days. Thanks. Mistertalk 17:42, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Mister -- for fictional wiki cities we'd prefer that you create a new wiki instead. Good luck on your project! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:09, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Heavy Rain Wiki (Accepted) Edit

Heavy Rain Wiki I would like to adopt the Heavy Rain wiki as the admin has been inactive since June 09 and with the games release coming ever closer, random posts will soon be made, currently no one is controlling it and it is subject to vandalism. I will be a great addition to the wiki, I am also active and will keep a close eye of the wiki. A link to the wiki - http://heavyrain.wikia.com/wiki/Heavy_Rain_Wiki Birdie94jb 23:12, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Birdie, I see that JoePlay has gotten you the rights. Please use them well, the wiki looks like it's off to a fantastic start! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:10, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Chuck Wiki (Accepted) Edit

I would like to adopt the wiki for Chuck. I fit all the criteria except I'm not sure how long the previous admins have been inactive. Although if I have I have to pay for it, I do not want to do that. Thank you for your time. :) Iheartchuck 05:53, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Nope, Wikia is totally free! (The ads we run on the wiki pay for your unlimited pages and bandwidth, and all the staff who are here to help you.) You're off to a great start, and I've given you the rights, please use them well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:15, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Earthquake wiki (Accepted) Edit

Hoi.

I found this wiki completely unattended when I started contributing. The last edit on the wiki before I started editing was about a year ago, cf. [1]. I would therefore like to adopt the wiki. ----Thogo (Disk.) 10:48, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Excellent work! I've given you the rights, please enjoy your work, and see if you can invite friends to help. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:26, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you! :) ----Thogo (Disk.) 00:34, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Futurama Wiki Spanish (Declined)Edit

I would like to adopt the needy wiki called Futurama Wiki (Spanish) (www.es.futuama.wikia.com) because it is inactive and it seems like the perfect wiki for me. Thanks, TV Man, The TV King 15:15, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

It does look like it needs some care, but you haven't made any edits there yet -- can you please start helping the wiki before you ask to adopt it? — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:30, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Sin & Punishment Wiki (Accepted) Edit

www.sinandpunishment.wikia.com

Hi I'm Cyberscribe and i would absolutely love to save this abandoned site from just floating around being unused. The creater, not users mind you, it's just this one guy who hasn't even touched all 4 pages he's created on his own wiki, the creater hasn't been on for 5 months straight so yeah i would absolutely love to have some creative freedom please to save this site from ruin. And as for experience i've had enough to say that i can handle this. Just look at fossil fighters wiki. I took it from 30 articles and it was abandoned and now it's over 230 and it's flourishing so i'm ready for a new project. Cyberscribe 22:37, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Looking good -- I've given you the rights and I look forward to seeing what you do with this project! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:38, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Rangers Apprentice Wiki (Declined) Edit

Hello I am Pat Breen (Pbre) and I am requesting the adoption of the Rangers Apprentice Wiki. I have been a member of it for a few months and have noticed that it has not had many ppl on it and the Admin has not published anything. I am a great contributor to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series,brother of the creator of The Missing Wiki (I did most of the work just saying), and I have read the entire Rangers Apprentice series. I know how to get people on to the wiki and editing and posting on it. Please grant me adoption because I love the series and I do not want the great series to have a bad wiki. Thank you. Pat Bre 02:07, February 8, 2010 (UTC)

It looks like there's a pretty active community there, so you'll need to talk to the other users about gaining admin rights; it isn't eligible for adoptions. I'd suggest you start by making a lot more edits first, to show them what you can do! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:52, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Arthur Wiki (Declined) Edit

Hello, I am requesting adminship in Arthur Wiki. I have made a few substantial edits recently, and am planning on becoming a more frequent editor. I also notice that the wiki is not in very good order, and most of its participants seem to be unregistered contributors. I would like to be an administrator there, so I can bring the wiki into good shape. Will-Girl 08:20, February 8, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Will-Girl, you've been doing some great work there! Though the admin has been relatively quiet recently, I see s/he has made edits in the last few days -- can you talk to Limequat about becoming a co-admin first? If there's no response, then we'll be happy to re-consider the adoption; this has the potential to be a really active and cool wiki so please keep at it! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:58, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks anyway! Will-Girl 04:35, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Magic School Bus Wiki (Accepted) Edit

I am also requesting adminship in Magic School Bus Wiki, for the same purposes as I am for Arthur Wiki. Will-Girl 08:21, February 8, 2010 (UTC)

Since this one has no active admins (or sustained editing by other users), I've given you the rights. Please use them well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:00, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, very much!!! Will-Girl 04:35, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Slipknot Wiki (Accepted) Edit

Hello. I am an Slipknot fan and a active editor there, and elsewhere.

I am looking to adopt this wiki. It currently does not have an active admin and is only being edited by me and the occasional person. The wiki can be found here: http://slipknot.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page I know that I have created multiple (2) wiki's myself, and I am currently putting those on hold to work mainly on this. I also have a question...When signed in as the admin how do you change the "Preview Image: in the top left corner?

Thank you

THE GMoD 09:51, February 8, 2010 (UTC)

Nice work, I've given you the admin rights. See Help:Logo for guidelines on creating and adding a Slipknot logo to the wiki. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:15, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Lego Agents Wiki (Accepted) Edit

Hi, I'm Agent Chase and I would like to adopt this wiki. It is quiet lonely and I would like to help it along. The creator left a wile ago and I think it would be a good thing if I adopt it.

Thanks!--Agent Chase: :Agents in Action! 19:31, February 8, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Agent Chase -- you were already an admin, but I've given you bureaucrat rights as well since the previous bureaucrat has been inactive. I've also changed the wiki's name from "legoagents2.wikia" to "legoagents.wikia", to make it easier for fans to find. (Links to both versions will still work.)
Please take good care of the wiki! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:23, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you soo much! Don't worry, that wiki is in good hands. :)--Agent Chase: :Agents in Action! 16:10, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Beyblade and Blader (Declined) Edit

Hello. My name is Leon35 and I am requesting adoption for http://www.beyblade.wikia.com and http://www.blader.wikia.com There is alot of unnecisary information and vandalizm in addtion to being unorganized and practicly abandoned. Thank you Leon35 23:10, February 8, 2010 (UTC)

Bayblade has 3 admins and you have only made 3 edits. And you have made zero edits on Blader. You need to contribute to adopt.--Sxerks 23:51, February 8, 2010 (UTC)
Fair enoughLeon35 01:57, February 9, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, as Sxerks said, you need to show what you can do to help a wiki before you can ask to adopt, and wikis with active communities aren't eligible for adoption. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:24, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Wicked Wiki (Accepted) Edit

Hello. I would like to adopt the Wicked Wiki. I am very framiliar with the Wicked musical and book series. I have not seen any active admins there. If I were able to be a buearucrat there, I would help bring it up to par and make it pretty darn 'wicked'. Also, if I am allowed, I would also like to adopt the Lemony Snicket Wiki. I have read the books multiple times, and I would really be able to fix it up and make it presentable. To my knowledge, there are no admins there. Thank you. Jack5555 22:18, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Jack, great work! I've given you the admin rights on Wicked.
We don't usually want people to adopt two wikis at the same time, since it takes a fair amount of work to get a wiki ready to start attracting a self-sustaining community. You seem like a good worker who could handle it, but in this case I noticed that we have another, larger wiki at w:c:snicket -- perhaps you'd like to join that one instead?
I'd suggest you try to contact the most recently active admin, http://snicket.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Sub-71, and ask about merging the content at http://lemonysnicket.wikia.com/ in there. If everyone agrees, send the details to us at Special:Contact, and we can close the smaller one (and use whichever name the community likes best for the combined result). Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:34, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, will do! And thank you too! How long does it take for the Admin rights to kick in? I have not noticed any changes yet. Jack5555 01:45, February 11, 2010 (UTC)


Megaliths Wiki (Accepted) Edit

I would like to request to adopt the Megaliths Wiki. It would appear to be abandoned, and the Admin last logged in well over 90 days ago. I have contributed one article thus far, but to really get it going again it needs an active Administrator. As far as I can tell there are no other active members, so I will need to build it up, however I'd be more than willing to do this. I would like to see a wiki on Megaliths becoming something popular, as it's a very interesting subject where there's never enough information. JacobT09 23:41, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

Nice work, I've given you the rights -- please use them well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 02:09, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Monkey Island (Accepted)Edit

Hi, i think i might not be able to magange this wikia well and i might not be cut out for being an admin, so, maybe you could let User:Launchballer be an admin please? Sclera1 05:21, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Nomination accepted. A link to the Wiki is here.--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 09:04, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
I've given you the rights, Launch, please use them well. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 08:45, February 17, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much indeed.--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 10:28, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

The Tetris Friends Wiki (Accepted) Edit

I would like to apply for adoption of the Tetris Friends Wiki, the previous admin Lusidea, hasn't seemed to be there for a while and have recently taken a liking to this wiki, and would like to be able to continue expand it.Anonymous184 06:59, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Done, please use your new tools well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 08:45, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Spider-Man Wiki (Accepted)Edit

Hi, I would like to adopt the Spider-Man Wiki. I know a lot of the character, and his history and various incarnations. Also, the wiki has sadly become the playground of a troll and his fanfiction ideas why he is attempting to pass off as fact, and I would like to bring things under control. GregXB 23:01, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

I've given you the rights, Greg, use them wisely! Please consider Assuming good faith in your approach to the problem user to minimize conflict. Try suggesting they use the "Create a new wiki" button to start a Spider-Man Fanon wiki. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 08:45, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

RoPokemonWiki (Accepted) Edit

I request bureaucratship on this wiki, project is abandoned. Thank you. Ervinutz 17:32, February 12, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Ervin -- I've given you the rights. Please concentrate on your new projects for a month or two before you try adopting anything else. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk)

WoW Wiki (Accepted) Edit

Hello I would like to adopt the WoWwiki Its full of vandals and only sysop Daedal last logged in 21.8.2009. I have played World of Warcraft about 2 years different ways to play and I know lot of World of Warcraft. I have been sysop in RuneWiki and FunOrb wiki and I have done over 2000 edits in wikia. Jaah X 19:44, February 12, 2010 (UTC)

Done! Please take good care of the wiki and ask for help at w:c:wow if you need it! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 08:45, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Stoked Wiki (Declined) Edit

Greetings, I would like to adopt Stoked.wiki, mainly to due the admins are slow to respond to problems and are hardly ever on. One admin says that he will no longer be active on Stoked wiki. I'm on almost all the time and I cannot make changes to the main page or certain pages because they are locked. I have made considerable contributions to Stoked wiki and would like to maintain Stoked wiki without any problems such as locked or blocked page that only admins have access to. Thank you for taking the time to take my request into consideration. General plasma 02:08, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Hi General -- both the admins are active recently enough that you should talk to them first about gaining rights. They can use http://stoked.wikia.com/wiki/Special:UserRights to promote you if they agree. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 08:45, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Percy Jackson Wiki (Declined) Edit

Hello, I am contacting you because one of the Percy Jackson Admins has informed me that there are no active Bureacrats. I have made a lot of contributions to the Wiki and have 2 very popular blogs on it. I am asking for Bureacratic rights because the Percy Jackson movie Premeired today and the users who will be on the wiki are expected to double within the next few weeks. I have read the series and love it and do no want the wiki to fail as it grows. Thank you. I recently improved the entire wiki with Userboxes too! The only one who has done this on the wiki. Pbre 03:13, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Pbre -- since there are active admins with a long history there, I've given 'crat rights to Balistic Pve so that he can carry out the community's wishes on promoting additional admins. Please talk to the community about whether they feel you're ready for the rights. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 08:45, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Eliminate Pro Wiki (Accepted)Edit

I would like to adopt the eliminate pro wiki. It has some relatively sporadic editing but besides that, there is really nothing going on. The founder and bureaucrat has not logged in almost two months and the other admin has been off for even longer. Here is the link - Rbatrack 03:50, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

There are several other active users there who should have a say in who the admin is -- can you please discuss it with them first and then provide me with a link to the agreement? Then I'll be happy to give the rights to whoever you've agreed on. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 08:45, February 17, 2010 (UTC)
Here is the agreement, Link and thanks for your help! Laststandb 23:15, February 18, 2010 (UTC)
Great! I've given Rbatrack admin and bureaucrat rights; he may now use http://eliminatepro.wikia.com/wiki/Special:UserRights to promote others as needed. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 20:48, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Alex Rider Wiki (Accepted)Edit

The Alex Rider Wiki (located here) has been without an admin in a long time, with only VSTF to clear up vandalism for us. Us active members at Alex Rider Wiki (me and another user) voted for who was going to adopt the wiki, and I was voted in, I did nominate the other user, but they declined it/removed it. See: Forum:Wiki Adoption --Lcawte1Talk - My Wikia's list - New Wiki Watchlist 12:11, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Done, please use your new tools well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 08:45, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Olympic Wiki (Accepted) Edit

I would like to adopt this wiki as both administrator and bureaucrat. None of the administrators have logged in in almost two months and the only editors as far as I can tell are the occasional vandal and a very infrequent contributor. Thanks! - Regards, Gaelen S.Talk Contribs 01:10, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for taking this on! It's a good time to have watchful eyes on the wiki, catch up on Vancouver events, and set the framework in place for London 2012. You have the rights, please use them well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 20:19, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Dagorhir wiki (Declined) Edit

Hi, I was hoping to adopt the dagorhir wiki. I am an avid dagorhir fan and would love to make it better. the admin hasn't been active fo a year. User:ShadowTale

We'd love to have the help of any avid fans on the Dagorhir wiki, but as you haven't made any edits there, I'm afraid you're not eligible to become an admin yet. Please start editing the wiki -- there's a ton you can do to improve pages without the couple of extra tools that admins get. Have fun, and come back when you've added some new pages and prettied up the main page (I've unprotected it so you can edit it)! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 02:01, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

Alone in the Dark (Accepted) Edit

Hey i was wondering, could User:Zairoq be promoted as the administer of the Alone in the Dark wikia (www.aloneinthedark.wikia.com), he has my permission and i am very sure he will look after this wikia well Sclera1 =)07:41, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Sclera1, as bureaucrat you have the tools to do this yourself, by using http://aloneinthedark.wikia.com/wiki/Special:UserRights/Zairoq -- but I've gone ahead and given him administrator rights as you asked. Please keep up the good work! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 10:38, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

Here administrators and buraucrats not are active, i request admin and cratship. Thank you.  Ervin [talk] 17:37, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Constructed Languages (On hold) Edit

Request 1Edit

Hi. I want to improve this wiki because it has some MediaWiki things I want to change and some stuff like that. I want to:

  • Remove all first level headers which are being used in place of second level headers.
  • Reorganize the categories which are not very specific.
  • Update the templates, they are worded strange and the colors are very weird.
  • Improve the Main Page and add CSS and JS.
  • Delete spam and deletion requests.
  • Make new templates to help with languages.
  • Clean up the wiki.
  • Perhaps make/request a custom skin?

Thanks! —Preceding signed comment added by TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 21:03, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

EmperorZelos 11:18, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Hi TimeMaster and Zelos, it sounds like you are both interested in improving w:c:conlang wiki. I have no problem making you both admins, if you think you can work together -- it looks like you've had some friendly exchanges on talk pages.
However, there are several other active users on the wiki -- can you please open a discussion there, to see if anyone has objections to one or both of you taking on adminship? If the community agrees, we'll be happy to give you the rights. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 03:23, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
Alright I have opened a forum for where people can place their oppinion. I am linking it down there for you to see, how long shall it remain open http://conlang.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:Gaining_Admin%28s%29 EmperorZelos 08:56, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
Let's give it a week, to give occasional editors a chance to share their opinion. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:48, February 25, 2010 (UTC)
Even though i do doubt anyone will do anything it does seem reasonble and fair =) EmperorZelos 22:56, February 27, 2010 (UTC)
That is alright with me. —Preceding signed comment added by TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 17:46, February 28, 2010 (UTC)
And also, can you put the forum on the sitenotice? —Preceding signed comment added by TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 17:47, February 28, 2010 (UTC)
I believe a week have passed now =)

Xiaolin Showdown Wiki (Declined) Edit

Hello, I have a request to adopt the Xiaolin Showdown wiki. I have experience as an admin, such as the Total Drama Island wiki. I have very few edits there, but only one out of three admins are active, and that admin doesn't allow images on the wiki (could you imagine this page without images? *shudders*). The pages could be expanded by a lot. If you decline, I completely understand. Thank you for reading. Kgman04 haz a kewky. 00:46, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Kgman -- if there are active users and admins on the wiki, then it's not eligible for adoption. You're welcome to edit the wiki and expand and improve the pages, and to discuss the wiki's policies in hopes of changing them, but you can't simply 'take it over' and change the policies to suit you. Good luck on finding a happy balance with the existing community! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 03:37, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, sorry, I didn't want it to sound like that. Thank you for replying! Kgman04 is happy! ^^ 16:22, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Groovypedia (Accepted) Edit

Hello. My username is thecircle. I've noticed that Groovypedia, the wiki about That 70's Show, is in need of some major editing. People without a username make edits from time to time, but they don't follow formats accoring the the wikia community policies. The last edit by the administrator was on March 13, 2006! I already have ownership of another wiki. I have one username per wiki that I'm a member of, and one of my usernames, Mr. Elements, gained ownership of Elements Wiki, but that was more than 60 days ago. I have realy gotten that wiki going, and I know I could do the same thing for this wiki. I've made a few minor edits to the wiki. Please accept my request! To get to me, please leave a message on my Wookieepedia talk page under "Gmalek", under my Groovypedia username "thecircle", or my Elements Wiki username "Mr. Elements". Thank you so much!! Thecircle 01:56, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

Nice start, please use your new tools to keep up the good work and help this wiki become more complete! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 04:42, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Scratch Programming Wiki (Accepted) Edit

Scratch Wiki (Declined) Edit

No one but me has been active. So that is why I would like to adopt the Wikia. Here is the link: Scratch Wiki

OperationTurnAround

Hi TurnAround, you have only made a couple of edits there so far, and I am hoping to hear back soon from the official Scratch team about what they'd like to do with the wiki. Please keep making improvements, and maybe you'll be able to earn administrator rights in the future! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 02:07, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Scratch Wiki (Accepted) Edit

After a long time I checked my request on my Adoption for the Scratch Programming Wiki , and it seemed a bit different from what I remembered. First of all, I'm Lucario621, not OperationTurnAround, so that may have caused some confusion. I have made many changes, as you can see here . CatherineM, if you're looking at this, you probably know about what has been happening and the discussion about bringing back this Scratch Wiki. I'd love to become admin, so this way I can clean up what's appropriate for the wiki, as the main reason the wiki became inactive, was because there was no way to contact the administrator, which people can do with me, via the Scratch Website , and the Wiki itself.

Thanks,

Lucario621 16:04, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

-EDIT: I became admin :)

Scratch Wiki Edit

This wiki is currently quite small, and is also abandoned. I would really like to help expand and support the wiki. Additionally, I'm trying to create helpful articles about certain aspects of Scratch.

One of the things I currently want to do on the wiki is to add Navbox functions. However, I cannot edit the MediaWiki:Common.js and MediaWiki:Common.css pages. Thank You,
--Mkolpnji 22:21, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

Resolved -- thanks to everyone in the Scratch community who helped to turn this wiki around. There's now an active community and admins there, so please work on creating a local "requests for adminship" procedure so that those with bureaucrat rights can give admin rights to those the community agrees on. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:44, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Roman Catholicism Wiki (Accepted) Edit

Hello, this wiki has only one page. I would like to help it out by expanding it, after all it is on a major subject. Please respond!--Celtic22 21:24, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your efforts, I've given you the rights. You might be interested in collaborating with Religion Wiki which also has sections on Catholicism. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 04:46, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Swedish Star Wars Wiki (Accepted) Edit

Hello there! I'd like to adopt the Swedish SW-wiki as the admin has been inactive since last fall. Wiki has not any active editors except Xd1358 and me, who works as a bureaucraut in Finnish Jedipedia. If I get the rights, I'll do my best to upgrade the wiki. ;-) --JouMan206 Mielipidepalsta | Ansioluettelo | Roska 15:42, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

  • As you (JouMan206) have been there for one day, I'm not sure if you should get the rights. I've been there since early 2009, editing it over 2000 times. I have also asked the current, inactive bureaucrat about sysop rights without getting an answer. After asking JouMan in IRC about the issue, he agreed and said that I should get the rights first. If you need a confirmation from him, just ask him on either his talk page or in #jedipedia. Sincerely, Xd1358 18:05, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
    • Also, as you can't speak Swedish with a native level, it would be good to have a bureaucrat with Swedish as mother tongue. Xd1358 18:06, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
      • Yea, you're right. I just thought it'd be good to have one bureaucraut with lot of experience (me). Of course you can get the bureaucraut rights after that if you want or if Wikia accepts this. :-) --JouMan206 Mielipidepalsta | Ansioluettelo | Roska 16:09, February 20, 2010 (UTC)
  • OK, I've given the rights to Xd1358 -- he can share the rights with you if he chooses, when you've had a little more experience with the wiki. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 05:02, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks. :-) --JouMan206 ( Mielipidepalsta | Ansioluettelo | Roska ) 13:23, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
      • Thank you. -- Xd1358(Talk) 19:55, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

Obscure wiki adoption (Accepted) Edit

Hi I'm Joshua Smart. I was wondering if I could become the admin of the Obscure wiki since no one is the admin of the wiki. I will try my best to make the Obscure wiki as accurate as possible. Thank you for your time and patience. Lowko4457Joshua Smart 20:11, February 19, 2010 (UTC)Joshua Smart

Great, I've given you the rights -- have fun! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 05:37, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

WikiDevo (Accepted) Edit

The Wiki is inactive there have been no recent edits by users other than me.

I have not founded, adopted or been given admin access on another wiki in the last 60 days and i havenot been blocked on any another Wikia project.

I have edited many pages and created several pages which really contribute to the site.

I am also trying to contact some past editors but i have had no luck so please can you make me admin for WikiDevo

Thanks ViperJono08 22:51, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Good work, I've given you the admin rights. Have fun! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 16:28, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

It's always sunny in philadelphia wiki (Withdrawn)Edit

I have 155+ edits on this wiki and 23,000 across wikia, i plan to make this wiki my main wiki, the last main wiki i had (FEwiki), now has 2000+ pages. I need the admin rights to delete a few unused templates/ pages add collapsable templates to mediawiki and change the location of the main page.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 11:00, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Cancel that i found a larger still operating wiki on the same topic.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 00:49, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

I'm glad you found a project you want to work on. Maybe you and Kanamekun (the admin at w:c:itsalwayssunny ) could politely invite the folks at w:c:iasip to merge the projects -- looks like there's some good things going on in both places. Good luck to all! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 16:44, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Sekirei Wikia (Accepted)Edit

Hello,

I wish to become the admin of the http://sekirei.wikia.com/wiki/Sekirei_Wiki because there's no activity and there are a lots of pages that need to be deleted and reorganized. I've added most of the edits and info on the wikia but because of restrictions, i'm not able to manage everything. Currently there's no response from the admin and he only has 7 contributions which his last one on the Wiki was November 13, 2009, adding only a single sentence that he looks for help. Could you full my request? Thanks in advance,

regards jamjamstyle Jamjamstyle 19:48, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Beautiful work, Jamjam, I've given you the rights. Please use them well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 18:01, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

30 rock wiki (On hold) Edit

I would like to adopt 30 rock wiki because many articles are missing and it needs alot of improvement. Also there are alot of broken links that need to be fixed and redirected. THe community is also very unactive and I would like to expand it and make it better. I have alot of experience and would like to lend my time to make the wiki as good as many of wikis are. Thanks Tikopowii 22:22, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Tiko -- we'd love to have this wiki pick up momentum, but since you haven't made any edits there yet I don't know if you'll make a good admin. Can you please spend a few days improving the wiki, so I can take another look? Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 19:55, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

SEGArcadia (Accepted) Edit

http://es.sega.wikia.com

I see this wiki inactive and i need adopt this wiki.Atte:¡¡¡I gonna show you!!! 03:20, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Good work, I've given you the rights -- I hope you and Carlos have fun making this wiki grow! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 19:58, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Rabbit Wiki (Accepted) Edit

I found this wiki: http://rabbit.wikia.com/wiki/Rabbit_Wiki and saw that the creator only made one page with 7 words, and pratically made no edits to the main page. I tried contacting him/her, but he/she didn't respond. I love rabbits, and would really like to adopt that wiki. Thanks, Magma-Man 04:38, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Great -- we'd love to have a devoted pet-lover to build the wiki up. Get to fifty or a hundred pages of good content, and you'll start having rabbit-friends finding the wiki through search engines -- it'd be lovely to see it take off like that. I've given you the rights, please use them well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 22:22, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you sooo much! I will do my best to make this wiki great! Magma-Man 22:56, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Unofficial Ubuntu Wiki (Accepted) Edit

I am requesting to adopt Unofficial Ubuntu Wiki. I have cleaned up and created pages which were not in good shape when I came there. Hopefully it will change but I am currently the only active user and need rights to be able to protect, delete and block should it be necessary. There are no other admins there--Sandahl 04:39, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

I am withdrawing this request because I don't feel it is necessary quite yet, perhaps another time a few extra buttons are not needed to improve the wiki. Thank you.--Sandahl 16:33, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
Hi Sandahl -- you've been doing great work there; I don't see any reason not to give you the tools now, even if you don't need them just yet. You also have the ability to promote other admins if and when the time comes. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 04:06, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

fez.wikia.com (Accepted) Edit

Hello, i am interested in adopt this wiki that had been inactive for long time. The old founder, create it to... i dont know. Only 3 articles... worshiping an ostrich. A New Online Game is going to come: Fantasy Earth Zero The topic of this wiki is diferent... thanks you.

Ralstlin 20:20, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Ralstlin -- I've made you an admin at the inactive w:c:fantasyearthzero wiki instead, since that one has a better name for game users to be able to find it easily in search engines. I've closed and redirected fez.wikia so anyone searching for "FEZ" will find you at fantasyearthzero.wikia. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:35, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Marapetia and Mara Fanon Wiki Edit

Hello! My name is Liliana and I'm hoping some of you may know me from Wikianswers, I also built WikiRespuestas and I love working on them to keep questions as clean as possible. I am here however to ask for advice and perhaps adminship for Marapetia the "Marapets Wiki". I created The Maradan Chronicles in June 2009 and it already has 103 articles. I've also helped out in Marapedia whenever I could.

Several months ago when all those wikis were abandoned (no edits for at least 6 months) I consulted with Angela about adminship or merging the wikis, and she suggested having the inactive ones (without articles) point to my wiki (The Maradan Chronicles), but then I decided maybe it would be best to give it some time. I'm glad I did, since the creation of The Maradan Chronicles and some of my articles pointing to Marapedia, it has gotten more popular and some people have come to edit more! I also added a couple of the wikis to the old Marapets article here in community (for history purposes - deleted due to "mass removal of blue box pages"). The same article can be found here.

However I noticed that Marapetia and Mara Fanon Wiki stayed the same. Due to my admiration for Marapets, I would like to see them grow somewhat. I don't think I've edited on Mara Fanon Wiki at all, but I decided to take on Marapetia which has been forgotten since it was created. I re-designed the homepage, and added two very strong articles (my edits and my contributions). The images were edited by me using Marapets images (used with permission). I even left a message on the talk page of the creator hoping for a reply on what his/her plans are/were for it; since I believe the best use for it would be for made-up dialogues and parodies with pets from the game. I would also like to add, that the "sitename" points to "Marapets Wiki" but Marapedia already has that name. I believe Marapetia should be plain Marapetia.... I know in Wikia they have the "un" versions of sites but I don't think that's quite what I have in mind.

I am sorry for the long message (my messages are always long so sorry) :( but I hope I gave enough history about this. Feel free to reply here, or you can also go to my talkpage and leave me a message there. --Molokaicreeper 04:07, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Liliana -- I've given you admin rights at w:c:marapetia, and changed the sitename as you requested. Please use your new tools well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:05, February 25, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you so much!!! =) --Molokaicreeper 16:13, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

GTAWIKI in romanian (Declined) Edit

I would like adopt this wiki. Erwin(mesaje|contribuţii) 14:46, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Erwin; since you've adopted a couple of other wikis recently, I'm going to wait on this for now. You can improve the wiki as much as you want without admin tools while you work on building up your other wikis. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:06, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

SDBF Wiki (Accepted) Edit

The Super Dragon Ball Finale wiki has no active owner(no one is even sure who the owner is), and therefore I'd like to have the ability to make people that spam the wiki unable to post into it. The wiki is intended to help people that play the game SDBF, but if random people that enjoy bothering others are able to take up our time by forcing us to fix their spam and such, there's no way that I and the rest of the active community can help the new players, or even others that might have questions on the game. Medicator

Nice work, I've given you the admin rights. Please don't protect pages (that's a common mistake in young wikis), but the tools should make it easier for you to revert unwanted edits and (if necessary) block repeat offenders. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:11, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Italian Ben 10 Wiki (Accepted) Edit

I'd like to request administrator and bureaucrat rights for the Italian Ben 10 Wiki, and if possible to remove the only admin present now, who's also the creator of the wiki. This user doesn't even appear to be Italian and all that he did was copy-paste some stuff from Wikipedia, but he hasn't been active on the wiki in 2 years and at the moment I'm the only editor and I'm working hard to get this wiki up and running. Since I'm already admin on the English Ben 10 Wiki, I'd love to be able to build the Italian one as well, since it's my mother-tongue. -Yuidirnt 18:58, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Nice work! I've given you the rights, please use them well! Drop a note at Community Central:Interwiki requests if you need to set up interlanguage links with other versions. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:28, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Talisman Online Wiki (Accepted) Edit

I wish to adopt the Talisman Online wiki. There seems to be only one other contributor, beyond the automated welcome message from Wikia. I was a long time admin of Guild Wars Wiki and also maintain a wiki of my own, so I am no stranger to MediaWiki software, or a gaming wiki community. I have recently started playing the game and am very frustrated by the lack of available documentation. I believe this wiki would be beneficial to the large player base this game seems to have, it just needs a little TLC. Thank you for considering my request. -- Wynthyst 22:02, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Lovely work so far, I look forward to seeing what you do with the admin tools! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:32, February 25, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much! -- Wynthyst 23:35, February 25, 2010 (UTC)
