  • Hey Joe, I was caught up with work stuff before but I've been busy editing the wiki for the last few days (567 edits now). Can you have another look at this adoption request. I really need to update the navbar and mobile theme to fix the display of some pages.

    Thanks

    • Wow! You've been very busy there, I see. I just completed your adoption, so you now have bureaucrat and admin rights. Keep up the good work!

  • Hi, Joe! CartoonEverything told me that I should probably ask staff if they knew what the Magic School bus Font is for me and his wiki. If you don't know, it's fine, but can you upload a logo if you can find the font or create one? we also need a background.

  • On my adoption request, you said to create a blog post. The blog was ignored. However, the biggest contributor said, and I quote:

    "Hello Createsans, I have checked your contributions, you edits seem to be nobel for the sake of true imformation (though your page for Todd is based mostly in sepculation) I have no authority to raise your rank. I am simply a fan of Eddsworld who edits this wiki in order to more acuratley display data about one of my favorite shows. If you wish to raise your rank I sugest you ask admins such as Moonzipan Cheese, assuming you haven't already. I wish you luck though, and I am willing to help you out if you ever need it. :)"

    • Hello. Ideally, the blog doesn't have to have anyone reply in order to gain admins rights. Technically, users who didn't reply are interpreted as not explicitly saying no, so you're good in that department. However, JoePlay stated that one of the admins did edit in the last 60 days and to wait til Oct. 27 (five days) unless you tried to contact him.

      I thought I should get that out.

      The admin only has 5 days.

    • Thanks for creating the blog post. Like Echo Spy said, it's totally fine if no one replies to it; the main thing is that you make it known to the community that you are interested in adopting the wiki, which you did.

      Be sure to leave a comment here again on the 27th if Moozipan Cheese is still inactive, and I'll be happy to complete your adoption.

  • I'm looking to customize these on the Catscratch wiki, and I can't seem to get it to work. Is there something I'm missing?

    • Weird. I don't know what else to try. Please use the form at Special:Contact to explain the problem, and someone from the Community Support team will follow up with you.

  • Is there a way for me to view a list of blocks still active against me in all projects (as you did) so I might pre-emptively explain them on a userspace page before making any more adoption requests?

    I think there should be some process of, if not overruling admins to cancel a ban, to declare it "insubstantial" for the purposes of being counted in this policy of active block = not allowed.

    Anyone can make a community and then block anyone for any period of time, even if they never edited there. We should not assume by default that blocks were deserved. If they were this is usually obvious due to vandalism or something.

    Much of the time you have abusive mods who hand out infinite bans if anyone voices disagreement. Or they treat a wiki like a personal playground and not a community collaboration.

    What is the recourse? Hand out revenge bans to prevent abusers from adopting too?

    • Open to trying S:C for list. A bit unsure which thing to click. "Issue with the wiki's content" maybe?

      I'm aware of how the regularity looks substantial, but things like (insert -ism) also happen regularly due to bad personalities being recurrent rather than the target being at fault. Ultimately what matters is the validity of objections and whether or not headbutting over aesthetics with less tolerant mods equates to -will sabotage the adopted wiki-. Which is less a concern when it's basically an empty wiki anyway and is equivalent to just shutting down an abandoned place and restarting under same URL. Maybe should've tried that...

    • FYI, Special:Contact/general is the usual catchall for things of that sort :)

  • Your telling me you can't be blocked on other fandoms to adopt a wiki,where does it say that. I am not focused on other wikis, those are other communities.

    • Adoption:Requests has the guidelines for adoption, & it is mentioned there. The requirement that you not be blocked is likely in order to ensure that you are responsible enough to trust with Bureaucrat rights.

  • Hi, I was wondering if you could please help me become an admin or adopt the Friends Wiki. There seems to be at least one admin on there, but it appears that they are inactive. I have been editing quite a lot since last year and I want to help around the wiki more.

    Thanks.

    Ffion.

  • Hi Joe,

    I've returned from a brief period of inactivity and noticed that for some reason the page layout has change across all articles on MySims Fanon Wiki. The main column now starts part way across the page, squeezing the main bulks of text together and leaving a large area of blank space on the left of every article. I was just wondering if you could look into this to help us find a resolution for the problem, getting the pages to fill the screen once again :)

    Thanks, Josh

  • Hello, Joe! Admin of the Heroes Wiki (hero.wikia.com) here. Could you make the Community-header-background for my wiki? Preferably one with superheroes in it.
