Hello! On October 25, I requested to adopt the wiki at oobifanon.wikia.com. I was given admin rights after 30 days of inactivity from the founder, and I was told to ask for bureaucrat rights after 60 days. It has been a month since then, so I'd like to request bureaucrat rights on the site. Thank you!
Hi, I wonder if you could help me. I am the founder of Royal and Rebel Pedia Wiki and some of my pages are having a category problem.
Every so often a page that has had no problems in the past will remove it's categories for no apparent reason. Normally, me or a fellow user can just re-add the categories and job-done. Two pages currently have this problem, but whenever I try and re-add the categories they won't stay. One of my Admins looked at the "source code" of the two pages and a bunch of code is missing.
Can you please let me know if there is anything I can do to fix it or give any advice. Thanks, Ivypan800.
Just looking at those two shows the problem: the last gallery has no closing tag, meaning the software thinks those categories are part of the gallery. Edit in source mode and add
</gallery> between the last gallery and the categories.
I was wondering how to. I've been on a few wikia's recently, and I've tried to add some JS coding. Though it seems to say "JS isn't enabled on this wikia". Could you explain to me how to enable it? And or if it's just for newer wikia's or not? Sorry for bothering you.
On the Inside Out Wikia, you and other staff are now allowed to make users an admin on that wiki if they earn certain rights on that wiki. I allowed that rule because, there aren't any bureaucrats expect the founder on that wiki which means, I'm not a bureaucrat either so I'm just an administrator on that wiki, and don't make admins a bureaucrat because, there would be too many bureaucrats on that wiki so, the founder will be the only bureaucrat. Look at this page on that wiki , and you, and other staff will know how users can be admins on that wiki. Are you fine with that rule, and is this clear?
Hello. That wikia is not eligible for adoption, which is when staff promote admins, because there are admins who have edited in the last 60 days, including the founder. We could only promote somebody if all of the active admins requested it and the founder was not responding to messages for some reason.
If you all become inactive (don't edit on that wikia for 60 days or longer) then the local promotion rules are no longer followed; anybody can adopt the wikia and become both an admin and bureaucrat as long as the community there does not oppose their request.
So if you wish those rules for promotion to be respected you will need to remain active on the wikia.
I know I need the week of regular editing before sending an adoption request. It hasn't been a week yet so I will wait for that, but my question is about the rule "if there are other users start a blog post or forum." I want to adopt the Slatedtrilogy Wiki, which has only a deleted founder's account, (last edit Apr 23 14), me, and anonymous users who have ever edited it. Since the only other users are anonymous, do I still have to put up a post they probably won't look at anyway? The link to the Wiki is slatedtrilogy.wikia.com. Thanks for your help!
Hi. You can go ahead and put in the request now -- it generally takes about 7-10 days to get an answer, which is deliberate to allow people to do the week of editing and/or put up a community request for a week before I look at them.
In terms of the blog post or forum, I will only check for logged in users in assessing whether there are other contributors, and even then, they need to be consistently editing over some time, not just an account that edited on one day. It is difficult to tell if IPs are transitory or the same person even if they do happen to edit for more than a day or two. But if you feel there is a community of consistent IP editors then a blog post would be nice and certainly won't hurt.
In any case, a response to the blog/forum isn't needed in most cases; it just needs to be posted so people are aware and have the opportunity to comment if they wish to do so.
I asked to adopt the Bratz Wikia a while ago, but you said I can't cause I need to edit there for a week at least. I made 56 edits within a week.
The past week I've decided to update the character bios of 6 girls, and will keep doing the other characters if I can adopt the wiki. I was also going to do the Product page tomorrow.
I updated Cloes, Sashas, Yasmins, Jades, Meygans and Rayas bios. You can check those out on http://bratz.wikia.com/
Someone put wrong information in those pages, giving the girls fake names and even writing some sexual stuff. And this wiki is not a place for that, this is a kids brand.
This Wiki, really needs my help. I'm not even joking. Some people are seeing this Wiki as a place to mess around. There are many rude comments with swearing, many fake pages featuring nonsense.... I linked you some examples. Fans are actually joking and laughing at the mess of this wiki. It can't be taken serious which is so sad considering it's the first Wiki that pops up when you google for a Bratz Wiki. It's not up-to-date at all. The last major changes were made 1-2 years back.
There are many many maaaaany more pages by someone who makes up characters and writes weird stuff. Someone even copied pages from the Victorious Wiki and just pasted them here. Like, why are there bios of the Victorious cast in the Bratz Wiki? I can't handle all these problems by just being one of millions of possible writers. The admin doesn't do anything anymore and there needs to be someone who takes this under control, so I'm asking for admin rights for this Wiki. I already proved, by my other Wiki, that I am able to make a proper looking Wikia without any false information.
Another good example of how people mess up on this Wiki. You don't need to be a realise to know that this is nonsense:
As there are other users editing the wiki you'll need to create a public discussion (forum thread, blog post, etc.) or message them letting them know that you're asking for bureaucrat rights so they may have some input on the matter. Once you've done that be sure to link to the conversation on this request.
