Comments/Reasons for adoption: '''How many edits have you made on that wiki?''' 316 as of October 13, 2021 4:32 pm EST (date of submission) '''How many days/months have you been editing there?''' Every day from September 19, 2021 to October 3, 2021 and I've passed 300 edits. I've also since edited on October 5th, 8th & the 13th. '''On the Special Pages → Special:ListUsers when was the last time an admin edited, and who was it?''' Dean Orbong. They edited a template on October 10, 2021 and before that edited a page on September 21, 2021. The last time they did more than a brief edit was July 2020. '''Any other information:''' Dean Orbong filed an adoption request in 2017: https://community.fandom.com/wiki/Adoption:Family_Matters_Wiki. They were given bureaucrat rights, but despite adopting the wiki, the wiki is still in need of extensive work. Messages left on their wall from other users asking to block vandals or grant user rights to help spruce the wiki up go ignored. I decided, even though I had seen they had ignored messages left to them, to still leave a message asking for content moderator rights on October 3, 2021. Despite them visiting the wiki on October 10th, they did not reply to my request for user rights nor reply to the message left about cleaning up vandalism. There are several vandal stub pages about "Family Guy" characters that need to be deleted, for instance. Pages need to be protected and someone needs to delete spam/vandal pages, but like many others, the request goes ignored. This wiki needs someone who will answer messages left on their wall from fellow contributors & visitors, someone who will remove stubs, combat vandalism, protect pages when needed, etc. I am an admin on several wiki's, some of which are also based on older sitcoms (ex. Boy Meets World, Girl Meets World) where edits haven't been made heavily in years, and despite that, I always respond to all messages left within hours, even those left recently, as well as monitor any recent edits. I was also a Wiki Specialist/Content Team Member for Fandom from 2019-2020, and made sure to answer all messages left across the wiki's I participate in while juggling the workload. I understand Dean Orbong may be busy with their personal matters, but when they do visit the wiki, they should take the time to reply to the messages left on their wall. The Family Matters wiki would benefit from having an active admin. Since they ignore requests made personally, I am filing an adoption request.

I am the wiki representative on that wiki. I will go ahead and make you content mod, please contact me if you have any issues. --Pcj (talk) 13:34, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
