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.
This should be done through Adoption:Requests. Based on the information, the wiki is ineligible to be adopted, because of several active admins/bcrats (a minimum of two months of inactivity is required to be eligible for adoption). You should message any of the current admins/bcrats and ask for rights.
Since none of the bureaucrats are active, the wikia is eligible for bureaucratic adoption. I would ask Jaume if he would like to adopt the wikia. After that, you might have a chance to be promoted to admin. Good luck!
By the time I approved the adoption, Pelagius must have edited at least a little bit, every day or two, over the course of a week. That is the criteria. It is not the exact number of edits, but the consistent editing of content (not talk pages) on the wikia.
No, I will not reopen the request. When you have edited for a week you may make a new one.
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 have tried to reason / negoiate a resolution to the blocks. On mine and my friends accounts on Mi High Wiki and the blacklist wiki but he has been unresponsive. I know wiki does not generally interfer and unblock users directly but i am asking you to make an exception please, all i am asking you to do is unblock the accounts and undelete these pages.
OK Merrystar how do I start a demotion blog for syalantillesfel. And if the blog is successful will the requested accounts from the requested wikis plus Raymond Red Reddington be unblocked and undeleted. Syalantillesfel has gone from unresponsive from when trying to negotiate a resolution / compromise to the blocks. He is now at the extremely heartless level.
.And if the demotion blog is successful I have just the user to receive administrator and bureaucrat rights on mi high wiki either me, malcolm black or ultimate slug slinger.
One last question if the demotion blog is successful will he be stripped of his administrator and bureaucrat rights on mi high wiki
Hey. You can just start a regular blog on the wiki expressing your desire to demote the admin, and ask for community members to submit their input. After the demotion, an active member of the community could adopt the wikia. Good luck!
Yeah So how you do this is do a poll and then have the person you want as admin just send an adoption request and then start a little poll like presedential elections, because the adopter is basically a president XD
You're okay. Just making sure I didn't miss something because I thought blogs weren't accepted anymore XD
Thesmartkid3001, a personal blog or forum will work about the demotion. I don't think polls are accepted because they can be abused (multiple devices for example). Where as with a blog/forum, actual people can comment and talk about it. For who becomes the new admin, yeah just talk it with your community and decide who is the best choice. So kind of like a president election.
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.
