Forums: Index Adoption requests AR:Adoption request for Jimmy Two-Shoes Wiki

What is your username? Princess Bubblegum013 (talk) 09:10, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

Please link to the wiki here:

How many edits have you made on that wiki? 16 edits and so on

How many days/months have you been editing there? About One Year

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

w:c:JimmyTwoShoes:Special:ListUsers shows that the founder User:Eradikus is the only SysOp/BureauCrat and their last edit was October 2009 and they last logged in November 2009.

Any other information:


It appears editing began December 13, so it's been ~7.5 months. That's 'bout 5/8ths of a year. Will ask Per Ankh, DisneyDreamer and ExtremeXN since they've edited this month. +Yc 21:32, July 31, 2012 (UTC)

I vote yes. Per Ankh ED 22:16, July 31, 2012 (UTC)

Naturally, since you gave her the idea. There has been hesitation shown as to the competency. and I worry she may follow advice to intentionally make errors.

A bureaucrat isn't really supposed to do whatever they want, but rather to help the community work together =/ It's a responsibility and not entirely something one does just for fun.

My concern is that I haven't seen Bubblegum make edits to any of the articles. If she intends to make articles for each page as you suggested, she's had months to do that. All her edits appear to consist of commenting on a blog post, posting fan art on her user page, and conversing with you on your talk page.

As a seasoned contributor to that wiki I don't feel entirely comfortable endorsing this. As such, I contacted some of the other editors (those who took the initiative to begin contributing) and inquired if they might do it instead.

This opinion could change if she does create some decent episode pages though, but in this case, responsibility should probably precede power. +Yc 03:52, August 1, 2012 (UTC)

I'll make sure she won't follow that advice. I don't even do that any more. Hmm.... Per Ankh ED 16:26, August 1, 2012 (UTC)
Besides, the editor bait thing was just a small experiment on my own wiki that never really worked anyway. Per Ankh ED 03:27, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
Hi. In order to adopt the wiki you need to be editing content there for at least a week, not just talk pages, and have created at least one new content page. You would also need to start a blog post about the adoption; there are a few other users on the wiki who should also join the discussion. Please give us a link to the conversation and we'll check back in a week or so. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 00:15, August 7, 2012 (UTC)
Okay. Per Ankh ED 13:42, August 7, 2012 (UTC)
TBH, I'd much rather see an experienced user like Kukimao (despite last being active in October) given crat powers as a check in case there were problems with how such powers were used. The Forgotten Beast says he manages a lot of wikis already and wouldn't be allowed to adopt, but that kind of experience sounds good. Three years of experience, and is an active wikia contributor, could be a firm hand as a crat that overlooks the edits of a first-time SysOp. +Yc 14:05, August 7, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Since Princess Bubblegum013 hasn't edited enough to adopt the wiki, I've closed this request. Someone from the community is free to re-open it or contact us via Special:Contact if a community decision is made as to who the new admin should be. Thanks. - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 15:29, August 15, 2012 (UTC)
