  • Hello! I am the guy who wants to adopt the Spongebob Answers wiki. You said to message you at the end of the weekend, as a week would then have passed for my adoption request. Well, here's the message! :D Can't wait to have the rights. :)

    Sincerly,

  • Hello, Merrystar.

    Thanks for assisting me with my inquiries for the past 6 years here at Wikia and its Wikis. I hope you don't mind helping me once again with an issue we've been having at Adventure Time Wiki. As you probably know, I'm the Founder of AT Wiki, the largest Adventure Time online community in the world. Last year, a new user joined our community under the name Yuzura. He was a bit of a reformist, going against all the rules we have set. Although he has broken countless of Wiki rules within the past year due to this, he was really helpful with Main Space edits. The majority of the Wiki's users disliked him and were angry when we considered promoting him. We should have heeded the warnings of the other users.

    Earlier this year, he disappeared for a few months. He created a new account for an unknown reason and returned last month. At the same time, I had announced I was going on a temporary hiatus to catch up with work and my last year of college. He took advantage of this and instantly acted. The first thing he does is create a blog with his old account, making up lies and rumors about me and some fellow crats as an excuse to demote us. He also held a "false vote" on his blog to demote me, and the other crats. Despite the vote taking place in an inappropriate place, the votes were all made up by him and does not reflect the votes of the other users. He admit to holding a conversation via chat, regarding my demotion. He convinced a bunch of people I should be demoted because I am "never" on chat anymore, which was partially untrue and out of context. All these people commented against me in his blog to make it look like the community was against us. All the crats and admins were always against this blog because it created public disturbance and also because votes belong in the forums.

    All this also took place right after most of our admins quit and caused an uproar. I find it unfortunate that he had to cause another public discrepancy right after I managed to calm things down. Me and the other crats began talking to him in efforts to settle the situation. However, before we got anywhere, all my rights were stripped while I was on a trip. Along with some crats and admins, I have tried to settle this with him, peacefully, but we seem to be getting nowhere. This is why I am taking this matter to you. There were two main reasons Yuzura gave for my demotion:

    1. I am "very inactive" and "never" on chat. - The fact is I am on the wiki everyday, watching over everything that goes on. I am on the chat occasionally, but usually during the more quiet hours due to my schedule. Yes, I haven't made much edits recently, but a crat shouldn't be removed unless they have been inactive for 2 years, as you had told me. Besides, I have been constantly active with my crat duties although most of it take place through AIM with the other crats.

    2. I promote users according to my will - The fact is we have a rule where executive actions such as these cannot be executed unless with permission from two crats. Every promotion we have made were thoroughly discussed. It turned out Yuzuru was simply against the 2-crat rule. He claimed that Wikia is a "democracy" and that this rules, that we have put in place 5 years ago, is leading to a "monarchy". Me, Sparda, and Waddle were against establishing a government within our wiki and simply wanted to stick to the rules. Because of this, we naturally became his targets. His reformist ideals have caused much trouble for us in the past, but this crosses the line.

    He also managed to convince people that I was biased in promoting a user who had poor edits because I knew him in real life. This was also untrue. I actually met and promoted this user when he joined the wiki during its early stages. Yes, he has poor edits compared to the other admins, but that is because he was the best we had, 5 years ago, before the wiki was popular.

    I would appreciate if you can help assist in this matter. Also, I would like to check which user had ignorantly stripped me of my rights so I can speak to him/her. Whoever this user was, he/she never even bothered consulting me and looking into the issue clearly.

    Best, Tavis

      2. it was on the top of the user blogs because the topic was controversial.

      3. According to the rules, votes go in the forums and not the blogs.

      4. Our rules do not permit advertising on our chats and you were not permitted to do so.

      Also, some things you mentioned simply contradicts the very reasons you gave for my demotion. You can only twist reality so far before it breaks. Please stand down. You shall not receive any more of our mercies and we do not wish to have to escalate this case.

      Why not votes go in both?

    • Guys, this is NOT the venue for this. Use Special:Contact.

      Or take this to a thread on your wiki if you wish to try and work it out between yourselves a bit more first.

  • If there's more than one wiki for a particular subject can all of them be spotlighted (assuming that they meet the "suggestions")?

  • Hello.  A couple of weeks ago, I made a spotlight request for the Dark Tower Wiki.  However, I checked the talk page and saw that my request was deleted.  After looking at the Wiki history, I discovered that a user named Torquil (http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User:Torquil  http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Community_Central_talk:Spotlights?action=history) deleted it.  Is this user an admin? If so, why would he or she delete my post?  If the user is not an admin, I'm not sure if this was a mistake, or if the user was trying to get their Wiki spotlighted before mine (although I doubt anyone would do that).  Either way, is there a way to prevent this so it doesn't happen in the future?

    Thank you for your help!

  • I am still interested, I just wasn't sure if I should edit the wiki while this decision was being made.

    • Virtually all adoptions, in order to be successful, need to see at least a week of consistent edits up to the time the request is processed by Staff. If you're interested, I'd start today.

        Loading editor
    • Yes. you need to keep editing the wikia. That is the only way we know you haven't lost interest, and there is a lot you can do on a wiki as a regular contributor.

      I've given you the rights. Good luck with the wikia!

  • Hey, Wendy! You said I blocked on a wiki. What is it's wiki's name?

      Loading editor
    • At the time I answered you were blocked on Miley Cyrus Wiki for blanking the main page. It looks like that block has expired so you are welcome to make a new request - only current blocks count. Make sure you meet all of the other adoption criteria (community discussion about adoption, helpful to other contributors, currently active on the wikia, etc.) so we can approve the request this time!

  • Hi, Recently you reviewed the Mineplex adoption request, and since I had received admin permissions in the mean time, it was denied.mhowever, the owner has fallen into inactivity again, so there is no one to promote any trustworthy members to admin.

    • The Founder, Henry.l.villelas, last edited April 6, 2014. With your promotion. Admins are not considered by Staff as Inactive until 60 days. It's only been 10 days.

      Seeing as how he responded to your request for a promotion in about a week, there is reason to believe he will do so again if there is someone else to be promoted.

      Should he fall into inactivity for 60 days or more, and not respond to messages in a timely fashion, you can open a new adoption request for the additional privileges at that time.

    • Hello. Robin is correct. You can request bureaucrat rights or the promotion of additional users when the founder has been inactive for 60 days; or you can see if he responds to more messages in the meanwhile.

    • Ok. Thank you.
