It is not so much a number of edits, as much as it is a *consistency in editing*. The Adoption criteria states:
You have edited on the wikia for at least a week (the more the better)
You have created at least one new page (the more the better)
You are currently editing the wikia
Basically that boils down to: make at least one new mainspace page and edit everyday or so for the duration of the adoption process which takes up to about 10 days. So if you follow that you can open a Request today and by the time it is evaluated you should have met that criteria.
Also, don't overlook announcing to the local community your intent to adopt in a forum or blog. It too will need at least a week, it too can be during the evaluation period.
I'm hoping you can be a hero and help me with signing up for your website today. Right now, when I try to log into the website I'm taken to an email confirmation page. When I have the site send the email to my email account, I check for new emails but see no new emails. (paraphrased: validation emails are not sending.) I've checked the spam folder and the confirmation email isn't there either.
you sent me this for 3dvce Wiki on special:contact:

Thanks for contacting us. The error appears to suggest that the file you were trying to upload wasn't recognised as a true .txt file - however, I just tried with a test .txt file and encountered the same issue. I am not sure what might be causing this - I'll pass it along to the technical team for further investigation.
Please do let us know if you do successfully manage to upload any .txt files - it may help us discover the cause of the problem.
Apologies for this issue, and best regards,

The problem seems to be that Wikia is trying to treat the text file as a picture since the txt file upload page is an add-on to the upload photo page.
In regards to the recent post on the dead rising wikia addressed to me, which I will copy here:
Apologies for the rather late notification about this, but you may be aware of deadrisingwiki.com, which forked from this wiki some time ago. Tomorrow, we plan to import the content from that wiki to Wikia, first as a separate wiki. Ultimately, they would like to merge back into this one, creating a busier, better wiki for everyone.
Such a merge should not affect the rights of any users on this wiki, and hopefully should be minimally disruptive. Once the other wiki has been imported over to Wikia, we'll work with both wikis to work out the best way to proceed.
Please do let me know if you have any questions, and best regards, Kirkburn (talk) 19:35, November 19, 2013 (UTC)
What content is being merged, exactly? Any extra pages that they've made that aren't on here, I'm assuming, as well as photos and videos? What will happen to pages that exist on both wikias, will their edits/current page overwrite the ones here?
Thanks - I'm glad you picked up the message not long after I wrote it (apologies again for the late notice). Once we've imported the other wiki onto Wikia we can determine the best kind of merge to perform, but ideally it should keep the best of everything - there's no particular reason anything needs to be lost.
Media can be magically copied over, and I believe we should be able rename any filename duplicates (I'm not certain, but hopeful).
For articles, that's obviously more difficult - if the name is unique it can simply be added as a new article. If the filename matches, we may have a few options: rename the new one, or merge the histories. In the latter case, whichever version has the latest revision is the one that will be shown - and simple editing can switch that. Depending on how much the articles have diverged, I'm not sure which will work best - but it's something we can work out.
