How many edits have you made on that wiki? I currently have 224 edits on that wiki.
How many days/months have you been editing there? I have been contributing to that wiki since July 8th, 2019.
When was the last time an admin edited, and who was it? The last edit from an admin on that wiki was from me, and it happened 7 hours ago. I am applying for bureaucrat because all the other admins either went inactive or resigned.
Any other information:
The current owner of the wiki talked to me on Discord and claimed they wanted me to become a bureaucrat. However, they cannot promote me due to a virus on their computer. They have been inactive on that wiki for 5 months now, and they said here [https://lgbt-plus.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:1523] for the bureaucrat and me to run the wiki without them. However, the bureaucrat they were talking to moved to another account and does not have bureaucrat rights. Their bureaucrat account has been inactive for over 3 months.
After they both left, a troll stopped in with several alternate accounts. They vandalized, posted inappropriate images, spammed, and said very homophobic/transphobic things. They also wished death upon another user. It was up to me to stop them, so I did. Now I wish to run the wiki and do everything in my power to prevent such things from happening again.
Also, because I am requesting for bureaucrat rights, I decided to make a thread in which my fellow admins would post their approval. Of course, I do not have approval from the admins that left, but I do currently have support from an admin who resigned, as well as several other users from the community.

Thank you for your consideration! Have a nice day! :D
- As you've stated at the above-linked thread, you need to give users at least a week to reply. Your application is thus … about a week premature. :) Please make sure that you've actively gone around to every editor (admin and non-admin alike) who has been active in the past 6-8 weeks and specifically invite them to this conversation by providing them a link.
- When at least a week has passed you can feel free to start a brand new application here called Adoption:LGBT+🏳️🌈 Wiki (2), and we'll take another look. At that time, you won't need to add all this explanatory text. All that matters to us is whether you have support, on the wiki itself, to become a bureaucrat, and whether you've continued to edit the main namespace each and every day.
- (Remember, too, that your current rights are more than sufficient to turn back spammers. A successful application here won't make you any more effective against trolls and spammers than you are today.)
- Finally, I just want to make sure you understand that becoming a bureaucrat is in no way "owning" the wiki. You're just going to gain a single power: the ability to promote and (only in some cases) demote users. No one actually owns a wiki. All you're doing is applying to become a bureaucrat. You might want to edit your on-wiki post accordingly to avoid confusing people.
