I adopted the Troma wiki on July 3rd. Do I have to wait exactly another month to adopt another wiki (which would be around August 3rd), or can I adopt another wiki as soon as August begins (and then adopt another when September begins)?
Hey Wendy, I recently came across an adoption request where the person requesting the adoption withdrew the request and marked the page for deletion. I went ahead and removed the deletion tag, but I was unsure as to whether I should mark the page as a "Completed Request" or not.
I talked to Thisismyrofl on Chat and asked him if I should (I've seen him do it a few times before) and he said that it's kind of a "grey zone" and I should ask you before I did, so I was wondering if you could you shed a little light on this please? Thanks :)
I used to mark them as completed when it was totally clear that no adoption would occur, like when the user openly withdrew their request, or when a user filed an adoption request for a wiki which they founded (explaining to them why I did so). If there was a shard of doubt in my mind, I would not close a request.
I later saw some messages from you, Wendy, that would imply that you would want to see 100% of requests, so I stopped the practice. But a definitive answer would be great.
As a general rule I do like to see all of the requests.
However, for the two cases you list (user wishes to close the request, or user is already the founder), as long as there is no additional discussion on the page, it is ok to mark completed. Please add a comment that you are closing the request (I don't think the simple category shift is obvious to many of the users).
If there are multiple active (not "on hold") requests for the same wikia, you are welcome to combine them on the first request page. I usually add h2's for "request 1" and "request 2" and "response" etc. just to keep things tidy. The later requests can be redirected back to the combined one and put into the "completed" category.
I can't think of any others offhand, but feel free to ask if you see something you think you could close. I do appreciate the help with these!
I'm not sure if I would call what's going on vandalism. I don't think the anon in question is trying to cause trouble, but the wiki's founder and I both think his edits are detrimental to the wiki, and the anon has ignored our attempts to compromise. I'm also concerned that the edit warring this causes could scare away new editors.
A little question: If the smaller one (Kuon wikia) be merged with the larger one (Kuon Game wikia), could the URL be assigned as only Kuon wikia instead of Kuon Game wikia. I think kuon game wikia was created in 2011 while the other one in 2010, so would the history creation also change from 2011 to 2010 if both wikias would merge? :)
Yes. After the two wikias are merged, the final wikia can have either of the URLs. So you can merge the smaller into the larger, and then re-assign the URL.
The creation date is sort of a weird concept, but no, it doesn't change. If you use export/import to merge the content then the creation date of any pages will be preserved, and can be older than the "creation date" of the wikia where you put them.
I'm Dop from Camp Jupiter wiki, and I found that we have completed 100% of accomplished tasks. We currently have 516 articles, and have had 50+ active users (before.) Currently our users have told us that as it is summer, they'll be ditching us for summer-y things. We have grown in community, and have very good fanfictions and roleplayers.
Thank you so much for your time, and if you have any questions feel free to contact me.
Here is a link to my userpage , if you have any other concerns.
I'm not aware of one that does that specifically. You can just link to Special:newFiles of course, or you could probably customize the wikiactivity tag to only show files (Help:WikiActivity_tag). I'm a bit curious why you would need it though, as the photos module appears on nearly every page.
