At the time I answered you were blocked on Miley Cyrus Wiki for blanking the main page. It looks like that block has expired so you are welcome to make a new request - only current blocks count. Make sure you meet all of the other adoption criteria (community discussion about adoption, helpful to other contributors, currently active on the wikia, etc.) so we can approve the request this time!
Recently you reviewed the Mineplex adoption request, and since I had received admin permissions in the mean time, it was denied.mhowever, the owner has fallen into inactivity again, so there is no one to promote any trustworthy members to admin.
Hello. Robin is correct. You can request bureaucrat rights or the promotion of additional users when the founder has been inactive for 60 days; or you can see if he responds to more messages in the meanwhile.
Hi, please don't take this as me trying to rush you or anything in any way, but I removed the adoption tag and just wanted to make sure that it didn't take me off of the adoption queue. Link is Adoption:Crime_City_Wiki, please don't feel like I'm rushing you or anything just making sure that it is on the queue as I previously removed it.
Oh okay I always thought you just ask on the wall of the staff, or admin and they would some how automatically know lol sorry for taking up your time, and thank you for pointing me in the right direction.
Personally, I use GomPlayer, which has a built-in screenshot function. No doubt other media players have similar functions. Just google "how to make a screenshot in [whatever player you use]", that should get you going.
Regarding Adoption:Grojband Wiki, although it was created first in August 2012 and has the shorter URL, w:c:GrojbandShow (made Dec 2012) notably seems a lot more active, and has 446 pages compared to 262 in the one that got adopted.
Ideally a lot of overlap might've been avoided had Itsme226 applied for adoption back in 2012 rather than creating the duplicate wiki, but may have been unaware of the process.
I'm wondering if there is some way these could be consolidated. I can't help but think the adoption application was a bit evasive when it didn't even mention the other wiki on the topic so that a merger might have been done rather than duplicating the content on the older but less developed wiki.
I'm concerned about how the shorter URL is being managed because the admin has been very quick to exert power, like deleting sensible redirects like w:c:Grojband:Laney to "Laney Penn", and so forth. Pointing given names to full-named articles is very space-saving and it's kind of hostile "no, MY wiki" behaviour to delete them.
Hi. There is no problem with somebody wanting to re-build a wikia their own way rather than joining an existing/larger one. Likewise, while it is certainly handy to have those redirects from first names to full article names, there is nothing that says any given wikia has to have them, and if he wishes to organize the wikia differently then that is up to him and/or the community there.
Likewise, there was no particular reason he should have mentioned the other wikia in his request, even assuming he knew about it.
I suggest you talk to the admin who adopted the smaller wikia and ask if he is interested in merging the project with the larger one. It's possible he was unaware of the larger wikia; it's also possible that he simply wanted to do things a different way and work on his own. The only way to find out is to ask.
If he is interested in a merge, please make sure to follow the guidelines for merging!
It's impossible they were unaware of the larger wiki, I entertained that but linked where they were editing on it prior to editing on the smaller one.
No community discussion was had on whether or not to retain the redirects, they were simply deleted. I'm contacting them about it now but I don't think that's something that should be up to management whims when it is of community benefit to have them.
