I have a question about bureaucrat rights on a Wikia. I started editing on the Little Bill Wikia back in April of 2015, there were no active administrators, and lot's of vandalism/spam, I did my best to help clean it up, in time I found out a close friend of mine who had outside Wikia contact to the founder of the Little Bill Wikia (User:Babysitter SpongeBob) I asked her to request administrative rights for me and the rights were granted on May 12th, 2015 ever since then I have been the only active administrator, I was wondering if it is possible for me to be given bureaucrat rights? Or do I need to request adoption?
Hello Merrystar, I have sent messages to both Seddyere and Mouldy101. Seddyere, the other most active member responded and says that she supports my endeavor; I was also thinking of promoting Seddyere as well seing as they are the next active member. http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Adoption:Ephemeral-Rift_Wiki
7 to 10 business days - staff generally don't work weekends. Though sometimes, the queue can take longer, depending on real world issues (like, for example, the summer holiday). But as you're currently fifth in line, it shouldn't be too long.
Just make sure you've got community concensus and link to the discussions.
Hello, I realized that you are probably not watching the request page. Perhaps there was a misunderstanding with the request. I've been on that wiki for years, and have done far more than 2 days worth of edits. I've probably created about 75% of the pages on there. You can check my IPs edits (as that probably wasn't visible through the user info). I've done more edits on the wiki since your reply and I'd be very appreciative if you would reconsider allowing me to adopt the wiki.
This is clear from the welcome message found under the original ip. I wouldn't ordinarily be bugging you with this, but after asking community chat as a curiosity sort of thing as to whether this was normal, they alerted to me the fact that it may be a bug. And so, I decided to let you know so your coders or whoever become aware of some kind of ip issue.
Yeah, I'm making sure to edit and I'll most likely take off now and leave a message sometime next week. Mostly I just figured it was important to make you aware of some kind of ip glitch. I knew you believed me. It just made sense to relay the info to you since we were already in contact.
I was wondering what admins and users should do when a user decides to create a new account for some odd reason, but they notify the wiki in some way that they have changed there account?
In the SlugTerra Wiki policies, it says that users are allowed to have a maximum of 2 accounts (1 primary & 1 backup), so in the case that a user decides to keep their first account (as a backup), so would a special tag need to be applied to 1 or both of the user pages?
No, he or she is new to the wiki and they just typed that they messed up on their first user page, but I do plan on asking them on if they planned on keeping it or not. But I was just wondering what to do if they do decide to keep it and how?
So apparently, the user says they have a 2nd account, but just in case I'll double check with them later. But about this "backup tag", I've looked around (user rights wise) and I couldn't find a relatable tag, so where do we go to find this backup tag, if it exists. It's okay if no such tag exists, I just don't want other users to assume that the user is a sockpuppet.
I am Daniel, the user who requested to adopt the perfectionists Wikia. You asked me to remind you after July 25th about the request because it would be eligible. But because we most likely live in different time zones it jus after July 25th here in Melbourne, so I sent the reminder today. I have been editing more and have gone over 300 edits now. The adoption page is here http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Adoption%3AThe_Perfectionists
Thanks for taking the time to read my message
Is there anything I can do to speed up the process of adopting the heroes wiki? That place is a mess of vandalism and unnecessary pages and to add on to that, its just unattractive. If there's anything I can do to speed this up, please tell me.
