What is your username? Anime Addict

Please link to the wiki here:

How many edits have you made on that wiki? 131 (may be more, admin purged half the wiki)

How many days/months have you been editing there? About a year

On the Special Pages -> Special:ListUsers when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? 04:16, 30 August 2011, Jack Butler

Any other information: The administrator Jack Butler has gone on and made his own wiki on his own domain,, and since then has been deleting the articles on Wikia created by several editors so he'd have unique content only on his site. Me and several other users have had divergences with him, and wish to restore this wiki. Jack Butler is very unlikely to return to the wikia for other reasons than to delete more articles. The content is reused from under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported License, so there should be no copyright issues.

  • Hi. Your past edits look good, but you need to be actively editing to adopt a wiki. Please resume editing, and we'll check back in a few days, as I'd be happy to give you the rights to see this wiki grow again. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 18:07, May 2, 2012 (UTC)
  • I see your point, but the wind of editing is taken out of one when half the wiki is gone and you have to restore pages from memory or other mirrors. I need the rights to start mass-restoring, something you'll realise is hard work. Most contribuors won't return until they'll see things reappearing and being undeleted. Also, is there any way to rename/move a wiki? I'd prefer simply tropes.wikia, but the domain is taken and it has 44 articles, it's also abandoned and has the same goals. --Anime Addict 10:02, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
    • I have no interest in keeping control of tropes.wikia beyond keeping trolls from pulling any vandalism shenanigans. Just getting that out. MasterKnight 06:20, May 12, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Sorry, I thought I updated this page when I gave you the rights on the wiki. As for the URL change, please send that request to Special:Contact. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 20:41, May 15, 2012 (UTC)
