It usually takes me about 7-10 days to answer the requests; while you wait, make sure to let any other community members know about your adoption (a message wall post if there are only one or two; a blog or forum if there are more). It's ok if they don't answer, but they should have a chance to support you.
And also keep editing - the more the better. Bureaucrats do not have any different editing rights than regular users, at least not for content and such. So there is no need to hold back :)
So, a while back, I applied to adopt the Toontown Clan Wiki. Now that Toontown Rewritten is released to the public, I would much like to apply again! I am editing a lot and I will make sure to edit all this week.
Hi Darkangel. After one year of inactivity a bureaucrat may be demoted if the current admins request it, and will be demoted during an adoption of an inactive wiki. Outside of those two circumstances a bureaucrat probably won't get demoted for inactivity - it doesn't happen automatically or anything like that.
If a community wishes to demote a bureaucrat before s/he has been inactive for a full year, they need to have a community discussion where they agree to that.
Okay So what would you call a situation in one of the wikis I am a part of (science.wikia.com)
The bureaucrat does not edit any articles calls himself admin and had once threatened me to not modify any of the articles he has created. Not that I hate him but he has been inactive and I was doing a lot of hardwork on the wiki and requested him to atleast promote the wiki which he doesn't do. I am a bit frustrated and it has led me to not further add an article. How does it feel to be the only one on a wiki editing continuously with no community involvement. There is only one active user ie me who regularly logs in to find of there is an activity on the wiki. Please help.
You can adopt it to gain bureaucrat rights yourself from the looks of it - his last edit was a message to you made over 60 days ago. That would mean he couldn't demote you if you did argue about article edits, assuming that is your concern.
I agree it is not much fun to be the sole editor on a wiki. But as a sysop you are more than welcome to request a spotlight or do whatever other promotion you want on other forums etc. He is correct about that, and seems perfectly fine with you doing promotion.
The solution to wanting more editors is to try to do something about that, not to expect somebody else to solve the problem. I'm honestly not sure how demotion would help with this anyhow -- if he is demoted he is not going to return to promote the wiki, so you would still have to do that yourself.
Hello again. The link on the spotlight list is wrong, ours is shieldlands.wikia.com/wiki/, not beowulf.wikia.com/wiki/. Can you fix that. I'd do it myself but I'm not sure if I have that right. Thanks.
