What is your username?


Please link to the wiki here:

How many edits have you made on that wiki?

1 026

How many days/months have you been editing there?

Two years and two days, as of today.

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

EmperorZelos, eight hours ago, as of writing

Any other information:

He has opted to relocate the wiki to be hosted under, and I want to at least manage the massive braindrain it has caused. He was very active, but, on, he has stated that he no longer cares. There is little activity on the wiki now, and there was a very sharp decline after they had decided to move.

Please respond quickly - I have written a blog post and am trying to get users to vote for new admins, this must be stopped early enough.

Unofficial response: (Please wait for an official response by a staff member)
I think staff will not let you adopt the wiki until the current admin is inactive for 60 days. You could contact the current admin and ask him/her if they want to give you the rights. 00:31, June 4, 2012 (UTC)Bomb

My blog post was deleted by EmperorZelos, which he has no right to do (censorship), and I have been banned for one month for "spreading false information" Is there any other way of doing it? Adminship withdrawal? Rostov-na-don ist dein herr Oberst! 14:30, June 4, 2012 (UTC)

Also, he is in direct violation of the following Term of Use: "you will not: ... (ii)interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Site or any activities conducted on the Site", as adoption is a process of the site itself and is its proper activity.

I see that there is another admin there. Could you ask him? I see.... Contact staff to report the violation Bomb 23:48, June 5, 2012 (UTC)

That admin was appointed by the one mentioned due to have been supported during the move vote - there is also one more; neither one is likely to help me as they have been told by Zelos that I am a power-hungrly mongrel on the moved wiki. I have already contacted staff, and I'm expecting a reply. Rostov-na-don ist dein herr Oberst! 18:16, June 7, 2012 (UTC)

  • Hi. As Jen said on the wiki, the new admin has not done anything wrong and we won't be adding new admins at this time. Because of that, this wiki is not eligible for adoption. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 18:25, June 7, 2012 (UTC)

The whole point of it is that he has done things quite wrongly. If this is your responce on both the behalf of the people concerned with adoption, and the ones for Terms of Use violations, then at least I deserve an explanation or a warning not to make false accusations.
