This page is where you can request administrator and/or bureaucrat rights on communities without an active admin and/or bureaucrat team. Communities can only be adopted by an active community member, though, so before you post your request please be sure you meet the Adoption guidelines listed below.
Existing admins may be removed only if they have been inactive for more than one year.
Although you may apply to adopt a wiki bearing the Official Wiki logo, adoption of these wikis is done at Fandom’s sole discretion and may not follow the rules set forth here.
Please allow up to one week (7 business days) for a response to your adoption request. Requests are generally — but not always — reviewed in the order they were received.
We look forward to having you adopt one of our communities!
Is the wiki inactive?
No sustained editing by other users. If there are other users please start a blog post or other public discussion of new leadership before making your request and allow users at least a week to respond.
Admins have been inactive for 60 days or more
Note: if you're an existing admin looking to gain bureaucrat rights, get approval from the other active admins, then let us know in your request
Is the wiki’s topic duplicative?
If you request to adopt a wiki that is duplicative, we will likely deny the adoption request — and encourage you to edit on the most popular of wikis about the topic.
You may adopt a wiki only if 90 days have passed since you were made an admin on any other wiki, whether by appointment or adoption.
You are not currently blocked on another FANDOM project
Are you contributing to the wiki's content?
You have principally edited content pages on the wiki for at least a week (the more the better)
You have created at least one new page in the main namespace (the more the better)
You are currently editing the main namespace
Are you building the community?
You make an effort to talk to other users -- you've left friendly and encouraging messages on user talk pages and responded to questions on article talk pages, forums, or blogs.
You keep the wiki looking well-tended and up to date -- update news sections, add new pictures and videos related to the topic, etc.
Does the wiki's topic have a natural audience?
We don't allow the adoption of personal or sandbox wikis.
If the topic is exceedingly obscure, and page view statistics suggest a very small audience, we'll probably deny the request. As explained in our Community Creation Policy, we may even fully close such wikis.
