Howdy. I was just hoping to get some general advice before doing anything specific - and I'm not sure what, if anything, can be done - so I hope I'm ok to post this here.
What exactly would a bureaucrat have to do to be removed by wiki? Also, I'm assuming that when you request to adopt a wiki that the old admins/bureaucrats are left in place?
A bureaucrat at a wiki I edit at seems like a bad admin to me but I'm not sure if the reasons are enought to have them removed.
1.They've locked LOTS of pages - with the reason given as "To prevent editing" - and the wiki is dead quiet at the moment so I can't imagine it is to prevent vandalism. The pages in question are the front page, character pages (the main characters and their own favourite characters), and also lots of other pages.
2.In the past they've also deleted pages made by a member when I would think a more proper thing to do would be to move the information to an appropriate place rather than remove it all together saying that "there isn't enough info to make a page on this person".
3.When asked to be an affiliate to another wiki they declined saying that they "weren't a fan of the show" - the show in question is related to our topic and I think the correct thing to do would be to invite them to add pages on the subject to our wiki. They seem very biased towards their own favourite aspect of the topic to the detriment of the diversity and inclusiveness of the wiki imo.
Anyway, I had a feeling that this isn't actually enough to get an admin/bureaucrat removed so I didn't want to get into an argument with anyone if there wasn't any point.
