On the adoption requests page it lists you as an admin who ultimately chooses whether or not the adoption goes through. I made a request on the secod of december, and absolutely nobody has responded. I had understood that 7-10 days was standard, but am I wrong? I have been waiting 11 days, and I was just interested to find out if that timeframe was right, or if you and rappy were just busy. Sorry if I seem impatient, though!
Haya! I frequently help out by offering insight on the Adoptions. I'm sure Wendy will reply when she gets online later this day (overnight for me).
7-10 days is a guideline, but not a hard and fast one. Allowances need to be made for Staff taking days off and or dealing with other Wikia-issues which popup from time to time. I think part of the cause for the delay here lay in last week's wikia-wide rollout of the Fluid Layout.
Your request is currently 7th in the queue, and if my feel for this is not off, should be handled tonight. (I have an adoption should be addressed too). However, I'm not Staff, only a helper, so don't *hold me* to this guesstimate.
While I cannot speak for other editors who often provide unofficial responses, *I* did not because frankly *I* saw no issues to advise about.
So be patient for another day, maybe 2. Good luck!
Hey Wendy, I was wondering if you have seen the first Muppisode that featured Gordon Ramsay. Although Matt Vogel was said to have operated Pops in OK Go's Music Video, this was considered Matt Vogel's first speaking role with him. Also, the Shark from "The Muppet Show" wasn't listed amongst the featured Muppets on the "Muppets Most Wanted" page.
Did I mention that Matt Vogel's first speaking part as Pops was there? Besides no mentionings of the Shark from "The Muppet Show" being sighted in the teaser to "Muppets Most Wanted," I had left a message for Toughpigs about a way for the Whatnots to be sorted into their different models like they did with the Anything Muppets and the Unisaurs. Even though most of the speaking roles of the Frackles aren't listed on their page by project (three of them played Spies in the "Roger Moore" episode of "The Muppet Show"), I have finally figured out that the Gray Frackle played a Turkey Vendor (performed by Mike Quinn) in "The Muppet Christmas Carol" (I can't say who performed the Blue Frackle during the "Scrooge" musical number though).
I want to adopt the Ultima Codex Wiki and I was wondering what counts as an admin being active. Two bureaucrats have logged in but have not edited in several months. I have posted a request for adminship on one of their talk pages and I haven't gotten a reply. What should I do?
A wiki must have no Admin or Bureaucrat *editing* activity for 60 days. If there are any active contributors, a forum or blog (or direct message if only 1 editor) announcing your intent to Adopt needs to be made and a week allowed for responses. This week can be during the same 7 to 10 days it takes for the Request to work its way up the queue. You should also be currently editing everyday or so during that period.
I understand that I need to be editing everyday or two. Unfortunately I cant edit since last month because of typhoon Haiyan hitting my home. But I've been editing almost everday last September I think. Please understand. Did I also mention I'm 3rd in the achievements leaderboard in the Hellblazer wiki, just behind the now gone main admins. I hope this helps!
Hello. I am so sorry! However, if you do not have access to your computer at this time, perhaps it is not the best time to adopt a wiki. Let me know when you have started editing again, and assuming any community there agrees, I will be happy to promote you at that time.
If you still have questions after reading the help page, I recommend asking in the Forums -- particularly if you can give a specific question (how do I make this template do XX?) our users there can often be very helpful.
Hi. Thanks for the replies. I checked the page and I think I can do these small templates for starters. But I've been very busy for the last couple of days (including today) so I will start working on it tonight or tomorrow.
Problem is, the last time I wanted to change the color of an already existing character template (on The Vampire Diaries wiki) it felt too complex. I'm not sure I will be able to understant it wholly so that I can create mine from scratch, but I guess I'm gonna have to. Meanwhile if you may have noticed, I started working on the "mgc.wikia.com", and today I created a new subpage called "User:Mgc26133/Article2". I just wanted to let you know if you want to complete the adoption process.
Hello. About a year ago there were tremendous problems at the Dr Who Answers Wiki, and no active Admins at the time. I posted this here:  and was granted Admin status along with Imamadmad, and Icecreamdiff was promoted bureaucrat status. Unfortunately, one IP user with in the 89 range feels that he/she is above rules, and has multiple personal attacks, engaged in multiple edit wars etc. After warnings, he/she was blocked by me. Once the short block was over, he/she returned with the same personal attacks, and reported me for abuse.  He/she brought this up on the Dr Who Answers Wiki, which was answered. I assumed the issue was over and done with. However, recently and without my knowledge, Imamadmad(another Admin) made accusations against me, which seems to be a)I haven't made any edits making the Wiki prettier b)I block persistent spammers and vandals. The 89 IP suddenly reappeared and made a variety of untrue and unsubstantiated false claims against me. Before I had a chance to respond, User:Czechout removed my Admin status. He/she also seems to have removed Icecreamdiff's bureaucrat status. It is unclear to me how/why he/she did this to icecreamdiff. However, ti appears that Czechout was involved with the original programming of the Wiki and thus effectively took it upon him/herself to be the "WikiStar" and both remove Icecreamdiff's bureaucrat status, and remove my Admin status after 89 made untrue allegations against me, and I never had a chance to defend myself. I have left a message on Czechout's talk page on Dr Who Answers, but I feel this was unfair and premature. Essentially 89 has made untrue comments about me, and Czechout removed my Admin status. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions/help/etc. in sorting this matter out peacefully and amicably.
Hello. From Czechout's own statement, the original accusations of the 89 IP were not the main motivation for the rights removal, but rather the community consensus on the issue. It looks like you did have a chance to participate in that thread. Community agreement in a public discussion is a valid reason for demoting an admin. I'm sorry you feel you had insufficient time to defend yourself, but as Czechout has stated he would consider re-promoting you in future, the obvious solution appears to be to continue discussing the issue politely with him and/or Imamadmad to discover under what conditions that re-promotion might occur.
In terms of Icecreamdif, that user still has all their rights. Only Wikia staff can remove bureaucrat status and we only do so with community agreement.
