  • Hi Wendy, sorry I was quite busy from contributing from the somewhat inactive wiki, To Heart Wiki. I'm just having my things in real life, but at least I made a better edits on that wiki. When I get adopted to it, I hope things will work done easier.

  • Hi Wendy, I went back and took a second look at everything and it seems there was a bit of confusion, or might be now: The admin of said page Walker9 hasn't edited in the past 60 days, he hasn't edited in over 100 days, according to the page edit history. 

    I understand he said "no" but even that edit was only 3 characters, so I do not believe he is still relevant to the page.

    • Hello. Adoption is for an entire wiki, not a single page on a wiki. While he may not have edited the Atlas Park page recently, Walker9 last contributed to the Kongregate Wiki as a whole yesterday. So the wiki is not eligible for adoption without his direct approval. I'm sorry but I cannot promote you unless you meet all of the adoption criteria (which includes wider community support and creating at least one new content page) and also have the support of the active admin.

      If you are only interested in the Atlas Park page, then you do not need to be an admin to maintain it. It is not ok to permanently protect or lock a page from all edits, or from edits without pre-approval as you suggested in your request, because this is against Fandom's Terms of Use. All content on Fandom is freely editable. The page is already as protected as it can get by blocking anonymous edits and new accounts.

      As a regular user you can go into the page history and either "undo" the most recent edit, or, if necessary, click the time/date of an older edit to pull up a non-vandalized version and then "Edit" and "publish" it to restore it. So you (or anybody else) can clean up any bad edits that are made.

      In terms of problem users, you can request Walker9, the VSTF, or even staff help by blocking any persistent vandals.

      I'm sorry but it's just not possible to be an admin for a single page. You are, however, welcome to create a wiki just for Atlas Park; you would not be able to control who edits it - it would still need to be freely editable, but you could create a custom space for it.

  • I'm still interested in adopting the wiki, but the last 2 weeks were hectic for me because of exams and spring break, but i'll get back at it around this weekend

  • Hi, how do you change the color of the admins name when it appears on the screen? I am having problems on another wiki doing this?

  • Hello. You asked me to message you about adminship once I looked into someone. On the Macgyver page the only 'Aristo_580' I could find was this guy, ' Aristo_580, but he's not an admin and only made 19 edits.

      Loading editor
    • Right. He's just an active contributor like you. Thanks for leaving the message -- let's give him a chance to respond.

    • I think it's safe to say Aristo_580 is ignoring me. As he wrote on one of his other wikis 'Legends of the Hidden Temple Wiki' the day after I wrote my message and then even wrote on one of my other wikis that I have in my 'fav wikis' for X-Men: Evolution for the character Beast just a few hours ago. I do not think it was a coincidence.

    • He could just be considering how he wants to reply. Checking out another of your wikis makes sense if he isn't very familiar with you and/or how you function as an admin. Give him a few more days please.

  • Is it possible to link wikipedia articles on a wikia article such that the article gets updated whenever the wikipedia article gets edited?

    And do I have to take permission from Quora to start a Quora wiki?

  • You told me to wait a week or wait until the user on Shawn Mendes Wiki responds, and they did. Is the wiki good for adoption now? (:

      Loading editor
    • Hi NikkiSarah -- since he didn't really say if he supported your adoption or not, only that he wanted rights himself, so I've left a quick message. Let's see if he replies more directly to the question.

    • Its been a week since the blog has been up, and he doesn't seem to check the wiki frequently. So do I wait longer or?
