What is your username? True_Sephiroth

Please link to the wiki here:

How many edits have you made on that wiki?

Over 250+ edits ranging from file uploads, template creations, page creations, page edits, corrections.

This is a new wiki for a show that is coming out next month. Though the show is not out, there are plenty of things that still need work and could have been edited.

How many days/months have you been editing there? Since June 23rd 2012 about 2.5 months (One of first 5 to join)

On the Special Pages -> Special:ListUsers when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it?

Wotter Power- He is a basic admin, SYSOP. Last edit: Sept 3rd 2012. No problem with him since he edits regularly and is active.

Dmeans - Current Founder, only bureaucrat Last edit: July 11th, 2012

---Last official page edit: 20:15, May 17, 2012 (Everything after that are edits for talk pages, or blog posts up until the 11th of July)

Any other information: If made founder or bureaucrat, I can direct what needs to be met for this wiki as well as promote the right people I know who work well on wikis.

Dmeans has very little activity on the wiki and I feel we need a replacement bureaucrat or founder. He has made 0 edits contributing to the wiki's infrastructure or development to get it outs of its infancy. As a result of his inactive nature, the wikia is behind and we can't grow as a wiki. He has not promoted anyone but Wotter to an Admin position with limited powers. We need more admins and bureaucrats that are active and can contribute to get some of the things the wiki needs accomplished before the show officially airs by the end of the summer. Dmeans in general is mostly a social user who rarely makes edits on any wiki he is on. Most edits on each wiki for him are below 150 edits and the majority of those edits are just social (Over 400+ on all wikis combined). For instance, on the Adventure Time wiki, he only responds to blog posts and hardly ever contributes to the pages on the wiki. He logs on still, but does not do anything with the wiki. Knowing this nature on another wiki that I'm a rollbacker on, I do not have a strong faith that he is leadership material for this sort of wiki.

Regardless of this, he has had numerous opportunities to at least edit a page that is not a talk page or blog post.

Wotter Power has tried his best, and should remain an admin. He contributes a lot and he wants the best for the wiki. He is just inexperienced with wikia coding. There is no problem with him other than the fact that he needs help. Because of him unlocking locked pages, I was able to finally work on some pages... but there are many more that only an admin can do, which Wotter has no idea on how to deal with it.

I have been collaborating with the only regularly active members: Wotter Power, Sky Monster and Izunna Nwogbo who have all been equally contributing way more than Dmeans and will support me taking over the wiki. Together, we 4 have contributed the most with each of us exceeding over 130 edits each. We regularly log in and we make regular edits. We have contributed to the majority of the content in this wiki (articles, media, and content). The other 5 and Dmeans sometimes log on (Dmeans being rarely), but none of them have exceeded 15 edits and many of them have not edited an article on the wiki for some time.

If I cannot be made the founder of the wiki (my understanding of adopting a wiki), then I at least request to be made a bureaucrat so that I may get this wiki off the ground and going. I will promote the wiki, get the right admins we need, and gather more users to edit since I have a great repertoire of contacts that will be willing to work on this wiki. I will also have intentions on negotiating with Dmeans to take ownership of the wiki if that right can't be granted through this adoption request.

I thank you kindly for taking he time to consider this adoption request and hope for the best.

Updated the request with some additional info and fixed a few of my errors. Sephy LTrue SephirothSephy R 08:14, September 9, 2012 (UTC)

Updated 9/9/12 for better comprehension, additional info and another supporter. Sephy LTrue SephirothSephy R 02:49, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Today is the 11th, which marks 60 days according to the list since his last edit to the wiki. Longer if you consider his last edit that was to a page and not on a talk page or blog. Sephy LTrue SephirothSephy R 17:46, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

Update 09/13/2012

Started on a first draft of a MoS, the wiki rules and a few more things that the wiki needs. Going to get it approved by the active members before posting, probably as a forum post. Completed several templates, and rolling them out as they are completed. Today, I also plan on getting some new info up as well as adding in a couple of more templates that we will need as a wiki. And if Wotter logs on today, I will have something cool for him to do for our wiki. Sephy LTrue SephirothSephy R 16:05, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

Update 09/15/2012

MoS, Rules, and NPoV are up and will be worked on in the forums once I collaborate with Wotter and Sky. A code of conduct is also in draft. Several more templates completed and will be going back to edit some nabs and fix another template I do not like. Dmeans has logged on for the first time since August 22nd 2 12:31pm Pacific, but still has yet to make an edit, blog post or a response to the wiki. Last contributions was still the 11th of July. Overall activity on other wikis has also been low.Sephy LTrue SephirothSephy R 23:18, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Have you talked to any of the other users about gaining bureaucrat rights where I can see that they have all agreed? We would need to see that. If they haven't could you please make a blog or other page where they can all discuss it?
The founder of the wiki is always the founder of the wiki. For an adoption you just get bureaucrat and admin rights.
Let me know on my wall if you guys have already had a conversation about adoption and I just didn't see it. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:21, September 16, 2012 (UTC)
Ah yes, we discussed it in chat... but if you want I can make a blog and post a link in just a sec. Sephy LTrue SephirothSephy R 01:23, September 16, 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I just created a blog which can be found HERE.

Hi. Thanks for starting the blog. I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights -- good luck with the wiki! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:01, September 18, 2012 (UTC)
