Hi! Devin here! Bizaardvark Wiki is slowly becoming inactive, so because of that I would like to be an admin, and I'LL be active if no one else is willing to be active, and I'd like to be an active admin. Also, if you could give me bureaucrat rights on the wikia, that'd be great so I can get other active admins/bureaucrats! So if you could get back to me soon I'd appreciate it very much! Bye! 😊
Hello, Merrystar. I had encountered this issue trying to adopt a Wiki: the adoption request page says that I should type in the name of the Wiki and an adoptions request form should come up. However, when I did this it only took me to a page that says the article couldn't be found. I realized that I could only view the adoption request form when I was signed out. I did eventually resolve this issue by copying/pasting the form. So I don't know if other people encountered the same problem, but hopefully you know what was going on there?
I'm not seeing what you guys are talking about. I tried the Add New Request on three different browsers, and it works like it's supposed to, showing the headings and the sections. It's possible that it could be some kind of bug, but it may not be effecting everyone.

To submit an adoption request you go to the adoption request page, type in the name of the Wiki and fill out the adoption request form.
If that doesn't work and you're having the same problem as me, you'll have to do a bit more than that. Go to the adoption request page, type in the name of the Wiki, and on the "article was not found" page click on "create article" and add an "adoption request" category. Then copy someone else's adoption request and paste it onto your article and replace their answers with your own. I'm guessing that if two users suggest we can do this, and someone else corrects the format, then it must be okay to do it this way.
Hello. I hadn't seen the create button failing myself (I don't generally create adoptions....), but it was reported recently so we are aware of the issue. It happens when people have the visual editor set as their default. Our technical team is aware of it and looking for a solution.
In the meanwhile, I appreciate you all either cleaning it up and/or creating adoptions with the copy/paste method.
Tupka -- I'd guess the missing form is probably for users who have their preferences set to not use pre-load page templates, and/or people who have just created a new page when the button didn't work for them. The messed up form looks to me like some sort of oddity with copy/paste and the visual editor; if it is happening just by using the create button then that would be very helpful to report through contact.
Hi MerryStar, I know that you typically deal with adoption requests but I couldn't find any active staff members except for you.
At the WWR wiki there has been a user who has been creating off-topic maps that have no relation to the game, I've already blocked the user so he can't create new maps, but for some reason, when I try to delete the maps it says "There was an error while deleting a map."
Can you delete every map except for the ones titled Yamateau, Springfield, and Sheng Zhen?
Hello. I'm sorry, but I cannot delete those maps either. Can you please send a request to Special:Contact about this? That way we'll have a record of the problem with them, and if there is a workaround somebody should know. Thanks!
I have recently been blocked on the fuller house wiki by FullerHouseFan01. Are you able to undo blocks as a staff member because I am here to fight it. And yes I know it's only a 2 week block but I don't deserve it
I am fighting this block on the following grounds
A) I did nothing wrong and I was only blocked because I used to edit on the second PLL Wiki and that I didn't tell them I was blocked on the original PLL Wiki. There is no Wikia rule saying I have to tell them I've been blocked on a wiki and editing on a second wiki and not telling them I've been blocked on the PLL wiki is not a reason to be blocked on the Fuller House Wikia
B) I did not perform one offence that would even lead me to a strike for getting blocked
C) I was only blocked because FullerHouseFan01 saw I was blocked on the PLL Wiki and I was editing on the secondary PLL Wiki. That's no reason for getting blocked on the fuller house wiki, I'm not an expert but I'm pretty sure you can only get blocked on wikis if you perform an offence on that specific wiki and it can lead to consequences to the blockee if I'm blocked for no reason relating to that wiki
D) FullerHouseFan01 wouldn't be an admin if I hadn't adopted the wiki (that doesn't really matter)
Please I really need your help
I am the head admin over there. That wiki wouldn't be where it was if it wasn't for me adopting it and then electing FullerHouseFan01 as an admin
And please, if it comes to consequences (which I hope it doesn't have to) I would not like AquaTerra7 receiving any consequences as she was trying to defend and help me
I've been blocked on fuller house wiki and I didn't deserve it
Reason: Not telling them I've been blocked on another wiki and he said I helped the steal info which I didn't I never knew that wiki used to copy info which they don't now. These aren't reasons to be blocked and I'm pretty sure you can only be blocked if you perform an offence on the wiki you get blocked on. I am here to fight my block
I have made a request to adopt the Diary of a Wimpy Kid wiki. There is no active bureaucrats, so I can't be given admin or bureaucrat rights. I would like to have bureaucrat rights because then I can add more admins so that there is active admins on the wiki. More then half of the admins have last logged on 8+ months ago and some even a year ago! Please look into my adoption request at: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Adoption:Diary_Of_A_Wimpy_Kid_Wiki_(3)
I made the request on May 17th and haven't gotten a staff response yet. Also I have never been banned and make at least 1 edit nearly every day that I can.
