DRM[edit source]

The only DRM Wiki at NL's Wikia is one I would like to adopt. However, the reason behind this is to help keep it free from graffiti and crack sharing and only leave it as a VERY BASIC source of DRM information that is for PC games listing publishers, DRM types and specific version limitations. If possible a change from the NL domain would be good too. I've realised this certainly wont be a 1 man job to make such a huge list, but would like some control due to the outrage over Spore that is likely to happen. I've already started adding pages and can see there isn't anything like this out there on the net yet. --user:Doesthisgamehavedrm

Hi. You made a nice start on this wiki, but you only contributed for 1 day. There is a lot you can do for the wiki as a regular user. Please ask us again about the adoption after you have worked on the wiki for a couple of weeks. -- Wendy (talk) 21:28, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Note the nl.drm wikia is for the Dutch language (nl = The Netherlands) -- to work on articles about DRM in English, please work at http://drm.wikia.com -- it was just started a few days ago and doesn't have any edits yet. I will encourage the founder to return and begin editing with you; if s/he doesn't start editing in a few weeks then we may be willing to let you adopt it. — Catherine (talk) 02:02, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Adoption request for 2320ad[edit source]

Wiki inactive since April. 2320ad wiki —This unsigned comment is by RASN Lt. Cmdr. Reijerink (wallcontribs) . Please sign your comments by adding "~~~~" in source editor.

Hi Reijerink! It looks like you're off to a great start. I made you a bureaucrat on that wiki. Keep up the good work! --KyleH (talk) 21:09, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

petz wiki[edit source]

only one edit ever that was by user:Angela so i want to help grow this wiki user:Super24daisy

Hi Super24daisy! I'm glad to hear that you're excited about the petz wiki, but the wiki was just created and you haven't made any edits there yourself. There are a lot of things you can do without being an admin. The wiki needs some articles, an updated homepage, and all other things that you can work on now. Help out there some, and if Leopardmoon doesn't return within a month or so, we can make you an admin. --KyleH (talk) 21:13, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Far cry wikia[edit source]

It has come to my attention that the wikia is up for adoption because of inactivity. So I was wondering if someone could help me adopt this wikia. Kthxbai. DeathSlayer74 22:09, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi DeathSlayer! That wiki definitely needs some help, but you haven't spent much time there yet. Can you help out there for a week or two then ping me again? --KyleH (talk) 21:18, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Spyro Wiki[edit source]

I would like to adopt the spyro wiki. I played many of the games so I know what I will be writing. I have some experience with editing and I have some great ideas for it. You can contact me on R&C wiki and Spyro wiki. Being a sysop would allow me to help protect agains vandalism. Many of the pages are not categorized, a lot can be done for this wiki. Thanks

{{subst:User:Clank 720/sig2}} 23:23, 18 September 2008 (UTC)Clank 720

Hi Clank! It's true that the Spyro wiki needs an active admin, but it looks like there are other contributors there who should get a say in who is promoted to admin. Could you post a message on the community portal saying that you want to adopt the wiki and that you would like their support in doing so? Once you post the message, let me know and I'll add a link to your message in the site notice so that everyone can see it. --KyleH (talk) 21:22, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Looks good! I have promoted you to bureaucrat, keep up the good work. --KyleH (talk) 22:11, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Winnie the pooh wiki[edit source]

I would like to adopt the Winnie the pooh wiki, it has been inactive for a while and I promise to stay and edit it well.Bulldog180 00:38, 20 September 2008 (UTC) 1

Hi. You've been doing some nice work on the Pooh wiki! A couple of things. One you need to welcome other contributors (you should have a welcome template too). And could you please ask the two other active contributors in the last 30 days (User:BlueFraggle and User:Scarecroe) if they are ok with you becoming an admin? -- Wendy (talk) 21:08, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

MY SHOW[edit source]

I wanna make a wiki about my fairly unknown youtube show Funky grandpa under the youtube username herbster4 so people can find out about my show so it can get more well known and then ill have a reason to make more episodes. we have lots of characters like funky grandpa,jason(Friday the 13th),crazy,loco,pshyco,loopy,funky grandma, funky son, funky grandson,scream aka: ghostface(SCREAM)and lots more. also ive always wanred a wiki for something of my own work. you can see summa dis show (that isnt that great) at www.youtube.com/herbster4.

w:c:conlang[edit source]

I want to adopt conlang during a really short time, may be just a month. I am not really a conlanger, and I do not plan to become a permanent member of that wiki.

I just want to improve the general interface to make easier to use that wiki. This wiki is basically administratorless since a long time, may be years, and it has become a mess.

It has no permanent users right now, people just come and then go after leaving one or two articles.

I already created a new main page, my general plans for this wiki are:

  • To link this wiki to related more functional creative wikis, like conworlds and novelas
  • To remove many useless wikipedia templates that were recently spammed with no reason
  • To remove lots of meaningless articles. There are looots of articles that are only the traslation of a word, i.e: "Rojus is the nujitsian word for woman". These articles must be deleted and their definition must go to an organized dictionary page.
  • To categorize languages, making it a more explorable wiki
  • To remove articles that are not articles but lists of external links
  • To remove a lot of pages that have nothing to do with constructing languages, i.e. the pilingual miniarticles
  • To flush away the Candidates_for_speedy_deletion category

The result will be a simpler more organized conlang wiki.

This wiki lacks of a community, users just come then leave, but I am sure these change will keep them at the wiki.

After 30 days you can remove my adminship, and it will be OK. Thanks.Golden Eagle 19:24, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

I think this is a good idea, and I agree, it looks like most people work for a few days on their own language and then leave. However, since the wiki is not completely inactive, I suggest you post about it on the community portal there and we can link it in a site notice; give people a few days to comment about it, and if there's no objection you can set to work on tidying things up. I think it would be excellent to have a clearer and more welcoming structure for new editors, as we get many requests for new wikis about a constructed languages, and we always ask them to start at the Conlang wiki first. Please talk to the community about what you have in mind so we can get this process started. — Catherine (talk) 02:38, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. I will post a message there11:30, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

The Mummy Wikia[edit source]

I would like to adopt the Mummy Wikia, as it is a pleasure fully to be integrating a part of this wikia, specially from a bloody movie, as good a it should be. My name is Tim Parody.

Hi. The founder/admin on The Mummy, User:Kongisking, is still active. You should leave a message for him about becoming an admin there. -- Wendy (talk) 02:15, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Smallville wiki[edit source]

I would like to adopt Smallville wiki as an admin. I have made over 1,000 edits to site since March 2008[1]. Elbutler 17:16, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi. The Smallville Wiki has two actively contributing admins: Marikology and Kanamekun. If you're interested in becoming an admin there, you should start by welcoming new contributors to the wiki, and talking to one of the admins about the process. —Scott (talk) 00:34, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Sam & Max Wiki[edit source]

I'd like to adopt the Sam & Max wiki as admin. It had only 10 articles when I first found it, mostly copied from Wikipedia, and hadn't been worked on for months. I've already promoted the wiki on a related forum and attracted at least two other dedicated editors, both of which support me on this. Together we've more than tripled the pagecount in three days and have spruced up the place considerably. [2] [3] Zoinker 23:56, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Everything looks good -- you should be all set. -- Wendy (talk) 00:55, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Adoption[edit source]

I would like to adopt The English Pokemon Encyclopedia! I believe that I can make sure it has more info on games and images of the site it self. I can also make a wicked Pokemon layout for it. When you say "Yes" reply back!

Hi Dfwilbert -- Pokemon has a very active community and several admins active in the last month. Please ask one of the current admins about becoming a sysop. -- Wendy (talk) 18:22, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
I am active there. You didn't even edit it. MarioGalaxy2433g5 10+ {talk/contribs/Logs} 21:32, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Literatura wikia[edit source]

I want to adopt http://es.literatura.wikia.com/wiki/, the Spanish Literature Wikia. There is no activity there for months and I have made several contributions. I want to be administrator to delete some off-topic content and also to prevent vandalizing. I think adoption means bureaucracy rights, because I need to give adminship to another user, also. David 01:54, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Any answer? David 13:40, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Everything looks good for both of you to co-adopt the wiki. Good luck! -- Wendy (talk) 17:23, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Javascript Wiki[edit source]

I'd like to adopt the Javascript wiki. I realize that I've only been contributing two days, and from what I see here that's not long enough - but it was a Wikia admin's idea, not mine. :) --Jesdisciple (talk) 13:43, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

It's been 5 days at this point -- you should be all set. Good luck! -- Wendy (talk) 17:23, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Deathnote Wikia[edit source]

Hello there. This message is in regards to the deathnote wikia. My attempts to contact the "admin" for over a week as of yet have been unsuccessful. The founder has long since left the site and I have been revamping this entire wikia, trying to clean it up and make it more decent and informational for other users. However, vandalism and other problems that occur are rampant as well as not being addressed by the only "sysop" (for whatever reason). Finally, an admin from another wikia had to intervene, delete the vulgar pages and ban the vandal's IP address. This wiki can't always depend on outside help alone.

In only the past week, I've written more new pages than the "admin" has in a year: My Contributions. The so-called sysop hardly logs on two times a month (only to glance), and even then he only squelches actual contributors' edits. Now users won't even bother to register because they'll be shut down by this kid. It should be the responsibility of a sysop to be proactive and fair with the wikia he/she sees over as well as help it's users. However, this 16-year-old "admin" must have a power complex, because all he does is ignore my requests to help out with the site more. He also hasn't actually contributed in a month, and all that he did was change 3-4 letters on a page.

As of today, the site has been pretty much wide open to abusive users who aren't afraid to create explicit and malicious content. This is because they think their IP addresses aren't going to be banned, because their pages are never deleted and logged problems are never resolved. I check the site and contribute every day, and I sincerely want this wikia to thrive and expand, not just merely exist. Right now, it's a ghost town, but I'm trying to bring in more fans that need unbiased information, not unfair abuse of "power." My question is: what can be done about this? I love this manga/anime series, and I already love this wiki like my own, even though it's as barren as Purgatory.

Many, many thanks in advance.

Hi Mogturmen. You're doing a nice job on this wiki, and you are clearly passionate about it. However the current admin, User:Dreamanderson, was active only 8 days ago. In order to let you adopt the wiki, he would need to be inactive for 60 days. So please continue to try to contact him. -- Wendy (talk) 02:42, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Michigan Wiki[edit source]

To whom it may concern:

I am requesting to adopt the Michigan Wiki, a wiki which I've been the sole contributor on. The wiki was inactive for about three years other than some tweaking of the main page by Wikia Staff.

Per the prerequisites above: I have contributed all existing material to the content of the wiki; there are no other active members on the wiki; the current admin has not contributed for about three years; a customized welcome template has been created to welcome any new members that should come aboard; I have neither founded a wiki nor been given admin access on any other wiki.

Thank you very much! — Jedimasterfiolli

You should be all set -- good luck! -- Wendy (talk) 17:23, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Celebrity Wiki[edit source]

Hi! I'd like to request adminship of the Celebrity Wiki. I adopted it several months back, and since then seem to be the only real contributor to it (Apart from very occasional inputs by one-time visitors - See my contributions). As this wiki gets the occasional bit of spam in the form of junk pages, as happened again a couple of days ago, I'd like to have adminship so that I can properly deal with stuff like that. Thanks! Dcba-25 14:49, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi. You should be all set; don't forget to welcome any new contributors who show up! -- Wendy (talk) 00:34, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! Dcba-25 12:30, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Club Penguin Wiki[edit source]

Hi!! Though I haven't done much to it I don't because no one goes on because the admin quit..., but If I am an admin I will get it back on it's feet and make it the best wiki! ~Anniedog98

Errr. Wrong wiki. We've been active for years.. user:turtleshroom
Anniedog98, Can you please let us know which language of club Penguin Wiki you would like to adopt? There are many different ones. --Uberfuzzy 12:15, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Pirates Wiki[edit source]

I would like to adopt Pirate Wiki. I've been talking like one, and I have some big experience on editing and only 2 articles are made there. And I need some admin powers to change Wiki logo, template:maintop etc.--The Pirate Ahoy! Talk T' Th' Pirate 09:38, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi. That's great that you want to adopt this wiki; it definitely needs some love. We'd like to see you make some contributions yourself there before you become sysop; there are many things besides a logo that you can work on such as adding basic articles and categories, or customizing the mainpage (you don't have to use template:maintop). -- Wendy (talk) 00:42, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Nation wikia[edit source]

Hi Angela,

Though Wikination is still active, there is no bureaucrat or sysop left. They all left for other wikis. I've had a conversation with the few most active users and they've said it would be best when I would become bureaucrat and sysop. The major problems are vandals, old useless pages and some uselessly protected pages. Could you please give me those rights? --OuWTB 12:56, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

(from User talk:Angela#Request)

Both admins left this wiki two months ago, declaring their absence. They said they would leave and won't come back. OuWTB edits this wiki since December 2007 and has the support of many people (me, Benopat, Bart K, Marius.deaconu, Hoogvleet, JamalH, etcetera). We need a new admin who can still do the needed work on this wiki. Bukurestean 08:56, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Several of your admins have edited lightly within the past month, including both bureaucrats (DimiTalen and SPQRobin) and some sysops (Lokixx, American Eagle). If there is a need for more admins, or more active admins, you should ask the bureaucrats if they will grant you the status. They may have "left" but they are still around. Your existing sysops can help with blocking vandals and deleting/unprotecting pages; perhaps you can help them by tagging the pages in question. -- Wendy (talk) 01:01, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

FlyFF wiki[edit source]

I would like to apply to adopt the FlyFF wiki. We've been having problems with anonymous vandals, and all of the admins have left the wiki. It'd be nice to have an active admin around. Amade 16:45, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

I would like to adopt the Flyff Wiki. This Wiki is much needed by the Flyff community, but is failing due to an inactive admin and a total lack of staff. I have contributed significantly to the Wiki, and I would hate to see it die. Recently it has experienced an increase of vandalism, and with no active staff this is difficult to fight. The other main editor of the wiki, Amade, directed me to this site, so I think it is safe to say that I have his support. --FreezeBlink 20:44, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
Hey guys. You're right that the wiki desperately needs some help. Since you're both active there, I went ahead and made you both bureaucrats. Keep up the good work! --KyleH (talk) 23:39, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Brickipedia[edit source]

Technically I am not adopting it, there is already an active admin. However, we had a discussion there and we need more active admins. The only active admin isn't a bcrat and doesn't want to be one. Will somebody make Nighthawk leader a bcrat and make myself a sysop. MarioGalaxy2433g5 10+ {talk/contribs/Logs} 18:25, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi. We'd like to see you guys doing some welcomes before we promote you. Can you welcome any contributors in your recent changes, (preferably with a welcome template as specified in the criteria on this page)? Then we can make Knighthawk leader bureaucrat as you asked (and he can make you sysop). -- Wendy (talk) 01:48, 30 September 2008 (UTC)
You should be all set! -- Wendy (talk) 17:35, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Shannara Wiki[edit source]

This wiki has been inactive for a long time, and I would like to adopt it. Cheers Darth Storm 19:57, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Shannara Wiki is certainly inactive, but you haven't contributed there yet. Please make some good edits for a couple of weeks and then get back to us. There are many things you can do as a regular user, including contributing content, cleaning up what's there, setting up a welcome template and welcoming any other users, etc. -- Wendy (talk) 01:53, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Terraforming Wikia[edit source]

Hi, I would like to adopt terraforming wikia as I feel I can make a giant out of this 20 article wikia and no one but me has contributed since may. —This unsigned comment is by Darwin IV (wallcontribs) . Please sign your comments by adding "~~~~" in source editor.

Hi. You are doing a nice job on this wiki! There are a number of unwelcomed contributors (mostly anonymous editors) in your recent changes. Could you please customize a welcome template and welcome them? This is an important part of adopting a wiki, as indicated in the guidelines. -- Wendy (talk) 17:41, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Ed, Edd n Eddy Wiki[edit source]

Hello, I would like to adopt the Ed, Edd n Eddy wiki. I am a big fan of the show, I have made good quality contributions to it for a long time, and I know what info belongs there and what doesn't. The admins here have not been active for a long time and I think this wiki could use my help.-- Jspyster1 22:39, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

I am also a big fan of Ed, Edd n Eddy and have been working on the wiki for ages and would like to become admin. I have been a big contributor to the wiki and think that being admin would make the wiki better and managed more often. Thanks. -- Jr.2k8 16:18, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Could you two make/customize a welcome template and welcome the new users in recent changes (both anonymous and logged-in). Then we'd be happy to let you co-adopt; you've both done a lot of work on this wiki! -- Wendy (talk) 18:35, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Zeldapedia[edit source]

Hello, I'd like to adopt Zeldapedia. TriforceKnight 23:48, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

Which version are you talking about? I hope you're not talking about the English version, since the English Zeldapedia is far from inaction and it has a ton of administrators and bureaucrats. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 14:45, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

No I mean any version that's avalible. your choice.TriforceKnight 21:13, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi Tritem! It's great that you're excited about Zeldapedia, but there is already an active community there with several active administrators. If you are interested in becoming an administrator there, you should spend some time there and help out. Once you have been there a while and gained the community's trust, you can post a RfA. But regardless, there are a lot of ways that you can help a wiki without being an admin. If there is a non-English version of Zeldapedia that you're specifically interested in, let me know and we can look in to adopting that one a bit further. --KyleH (talk) 22:27, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
