Smallville wiki, again (Declined)Edit

I'm ready to try again to adopt Smallville wiki, am i able to yet? Elbutler 15:27, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Adoption requests are for communities that are inactive. Smallville Wiki is a very active community, so it's not possible to adopt it. Please feel free to contribute there, and get to know the community! -- Danny@fandom (talk) 17:40, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Drawn to life (Accepted)Edit

If possible, I would like to adopt Drawn to Life wiki. I am a big fan of Drawn to life. I am almost the only user to have edited anything in the last 60 days. I have been a great help to the wiki, even up to deciding the first featured article. I also need to edit the sidebar because, among other things, there is a typo. Solar flute 05:25, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

They ignored me when I requested a wiki too. Solar flute

Hi Solar flute! It looks like you're offto a great start on Drawn to life. I've made you a sysop. Keep up the good work! --KyleH@fandom (talk) 21:57, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

hellsing wiki (Declined)Edit

i would like to adopt the hellsing wiki as i know quite a fair bit about hellsing and the page(s0 are quite scarce and don't provide much information for others looking at watching the anime and OVA's or looking at reading the manga. i would be able to make a huge contribution to that particular page, so please let me adopt this poor lost hellsing page.

i would also appreciate if anyone who's a hellsing fan contact me with information you may have about the manga, anime or OVA's.

death note XD aka Michaela

Hi Michaela. I think it's great that you want to improve the Hellsing Wiki. However I can't see that you have ever made any edits there. There's a lot you can do as a regular contributor to improve articles and make the wiki a fun place. We want to see you building the wiki before you become an admin there. -- Wendy (talk) 01:44, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Adoption Request for Book Wiki (Declined) Edit

Hello There!

I am interested in adopting the Books Wiki. I've made quite a few edits there and am going to start a welcome template today. It would be best if I could become a sysop and/or bureaucrat there, too. I looked and there was only one sysop there and that person hasn't edited the wiki since August of 2007.

If you could leave me a message on my talk page with your response, that would be great.

Thanks so much,

Jonathan W. My Talk Page / My User Page

Hi Jonathan. I'm glad that you are interested in writing about books. May I suggest, however, that the type of pages you are making would fit better on Literature Wiki. If you read the front page, you will see that Books Wiki was intended to function as a place for "meta-data" on books; links and information, but not long descriptions. There seems little purpose in duplicating the type of content that already exists on a different wiki. That aside, I only see one real article that you have made on the wiki, and you've only been working there for two days. We like to see people contributing real content (not just templates and user pages) for awhile before they try to adopt a wiki. -- Wendy (talk) 02:16, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm Dizzymood and I would like to adopt this wiki. I love reading books and I think a great book lover like me should adopt this wiki. I will keep editing your wiki with love and care.

Hi Dizzywood; your request for a Xat wiki has been accepted; please focus on getting that project off the ground. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 03:13, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Adopting The M.U.G.E.N Wiki (Accepted) Edit

Hi Wikia!

I'd like to adopt the M.U.G.E.N Wiki please. I know loads of stuff about M.U.G.E.N.

Thanks, --OpenBSDWiki 00:31, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi OpenBSDWiki. I think it's great that you want to improve the M.U.G.E.N. Wiki. However I can't see that you have ever made any edits there. There's a lot you can do as a regular contributor to improve articles and make the wiki a fun place. We want to see you building the wiki before you become an admin there. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 19:44, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Err... he's trying to adopt the MUGEN wiki. YOWUZA TALK 2 ME! 17:15, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
My mistake (fixed now - yay for wikis!) OpenBSD, you made some small edits a few days ago but I'd like to see some more sustained editing over time, okay? Please keep up the good work. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 03:13, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the effort -- I've given you admin rights now. Have fun! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 05:52, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Programming Wiki (Accepted)Edit

I want to merge c:programming with c:code, but... Well, just read this. I realize that my adoption of the JavaScript Wiki was less than 60 days ago, but I'd appreciate Bureaucrat and Sysop rights on the Programming Wiki. Thanks. --Jesdisciple (talk) 00:22, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

This looks like a good merger, and it doesn't seem there are any objections. You won't need admin rights to use w:c:Special:Export from Programming; just let me know when it's done and I will disable the wiki and redirect the url to (although in my opinion Programming might be the better title for the combined wiki -- we could just as easily change the url of the current Code wiki to programming.wikia, leaving code.wikia as a redirect. Your choice!) Thanks for your effort in combining these very similar wikis. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 19:53, 25 October 2008 (UTC) already has a community, so would redirecting it to cause any disturbance? Either way, I'll ask the former wiki's admin for his opinion and link over here.
I actually did export the pages I haven't already copied manually, but I can't import them because I'm not an admin at the destination wiki. Do I need to upload them to a file-hosting service for the admin at to download and import? Thanks again! --Jesdisciple (talk) 20:51, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Just get the complete list of pages (Special:Export works on a list, and it doesn't have to be generated from a category, either) to the other admin and let him do the export/import? Anyway, I'm happy things seem to be working out well. --◄mendel► 22:12, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Sorry I misunderstood -- I thought you were already an admin on Code. Yes, you can either send the XML file generated by Special:Export to an existing admin (via email, file hosting, Yousendit, etc), or s/he can generate their own XML file from Programming, or you can ask if a Code bureaucrat would be willing to make you a (possibly temporary) admin there so that you can handle the Special:Import.

And yes, if we change the url of code.wikia to programming.wikia, leaving code.wikia as a redirct, all old links will function the same. It's up to the communities to decide; I just think that "programming wiki" is something potential new users are more likely to be looking for than "code wiki". Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 22:35, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

If the redirect won't disrupt anything, why do we need the articles exported? Or does "function the same" somehow mean one wiki's articles will be hidden from non-staff?
EDIT: Also, my main problem with the "programming" subdomain is that some computer languages (e.g. CSS, HTML, and XML) are not programming languages, although they are handled by programs. --Jesdisciple (talk) 01:48, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
Fair enough; that's a good argument for keeping the url as Code.wikia. Please let me know when the transfer is complete and I'll close and redirect the Programming wiki. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 03:13, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Pt.Conlang (Accepted)Edit

I like adopt the portuguese Conlang--Dono da Vila 16:18, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

You've done some nice things there! I've granted the admin rights there -- thanks for your hard work! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 19:49, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

WP: South Park (Declined)Edit

I would love to be a administrator on this Wiki! The reason i haven't edited it yet is because I just found it. I'm an established user on enWikipedia, I use WP:Twinkle and have been granted WP:Rollback righs on there, so I know what I'm doing, please give me the administrator tool for this wiki, I won't fail you! Steelerfan-94 22:27, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Southpark.wikia is an active community with current admins -- if you love South Park please join in and start helping out! You can earn adminship there the same way you can at Wikipedia: by making lots of helpful edits and being kind to other users. Have fun! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 22:42, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Heroes Wiki (Accepted)Edit

I would love to adopt the Heroes Wiki since admins haven't been on for a while. I will help it to grow. I've already started working on it! Destiny! 01:05, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

You're right, it could use a steady admin. Could you create and customize some welcome templates there? You can copy the ones from Template:Welcome and Template:WelcomeIP if you like. Then you can start using them to say hello to new users (those with red "Talk" links on Recent changes). Once you've done that we can look at setting you up as admin. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 19:27, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
Okay. I've done that. Destiny! 09:24, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks; I've granted you admin rights. Please make sure to keep creating new pages and welcoming new users -- it's the best way to help your project thrive! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:16, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

College Basketball (Declined)Edit

I would like to adopt the College Basketball wikia, I have a huge interest in college basketball and I need the administrator tools to get it up and going, college basketball is coming up soon so I would like to able to have it ready by then, I know a-lot of user's who could help me out on this, the potential is unlimited and there's no one who care's about it....please let me adopt it. Thanks.....Steelerfan-94 18:01, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

I've already started expanding it, and there's only been one edit in "30" day's! Steelerfan-94 18:44, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
Anybody? Please. Steelerfan-94 19:31, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
O.K, please don't ignore me, if you need people to vouch for me I know countless administrator's on Wikipedia that would. I can't even begin to start I need to be able to rollback edit's, general clean up please just grant me this, someone...Steelerfan-94 03:24, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
Hi Steelerfan! It's great that you're excited about the College Basketball wiki! However, founding and adopting wikis is a lot of work. You recently requested an Arkansas wiki as well, and that request as approved. Try focusing your efforts there for a while. If after a month or two you find that you still have some extra time, give us a yell and we can talk about adopting the College Basketball wiki again. --KyleH@fandom (talk) 22:05, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

The Pretender Wiki (Accepted)Edit

I would like to adopt the wiki on the tv show: The Pretender. It appears to have been empty since it was first created til yesterday when I added pages for Season 1 and Season 2, today I will add a page for Jarod which would have been added yesterday had the db not been locked for editing. Miss Parker 19:40, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi. You've made a nice start to this wiki, and it's good to see some content being added. Could you go ahead and make/customize a welcome template in case other visitors stop by? -- Wendy (talk) 18:30, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
That looks great -- you should be all set! -- Wendy (talk) 19:54, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

English Hamsters Wiki (Declined)Edit

I would like to adopt the Hamsters Wiki, it is inactive since August 21 2008

--The Pirate Ahoy! Talk T' Th' Pirate 03:15, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi Aqua Jet -- you haven't made any edits there yet. There's a lot you can do as a regular contributor to improve articles and make the wiki a fun place. We want to see you building the wiki before you become an admin there. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 03:13, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Star Ocean Wiki (Accepted)Edit

Hello, I'd like to adopt the Star Ocean Wiki here, which has seen very little activity in ages. Diablocon 17:35, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

It looks like you're making a great start there, but there's a couple other recently active users who should have a say. I suggest you start a topic about who should receive admin rights in the forum, and we can provide a link to the discussion in the site notice. We'd also like to see you welcoming other new users (those with red Talk links on Recent Changes). Once the community has come to a decision we can provide admin and bureaucrat rights as necessary. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 18:15, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for the response. I've created the forum topic here, so now I wait (and make more aticles). :) Diablocon 18:42, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
Yep, thanks for the good attitude! I've left a comment in the discussion there; just let us know when the community has come to a decision so that we can assign the rights as needed. Keep up the good work! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:29, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
The community has no qualms of Diablocon as sysop. Bluer 18:16, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
OK, I have promoted you, Diablocon! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 05:52, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Ghost in the Shell Wikia (Declined)Edit

Hello there,

I'm Subtank aka Little Missy and I'm requesting to adopt GITS Wikia. The Admin (Dantman) has been inactive for months now, contents is ancient and old and I am keen on improving the site. :)

Subtank05:13, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi Subtank. You've made a nice start to the site. However, you were made admin on Halo Fanon less than 60 days ago, and you started a wiki for Space Invasion just over 60 days ago. In addition, you've only contributed to Ghost in the Shell for a couple of days. There's a lot you can do as a regular user to update the content while continuing to build up your other wikis right now. -- Wendy (talk) 15:41, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

New World Order (Declined)Edit

I would like to adopt the NWO wiki because the founder admin has not edited the website after this July, four months ago. Truthbot911 22:17, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

You've only made one edit there, and there are several other active users. Please start editing more steadily -- this wiki needs a lot more articles! -- and then start a discussion with the community about who should become an admin. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:32, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, sure, I guess it is a good idea that one should be established as an editor before becomeing an admin. But what community? Truthbot911 01:03, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
User:Proxima Centauri and User:Wikiar have both edited in the last month -- please chat with them about whether one or more of you should be an admin, and start making more edits, and we can reconsider this request in a couple of weeks. Thank you! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 05:52, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

es.tibia (Withdrawn)Edit

Would it be possible to get temporary admin rights on c:es.tibia even though I don't speak Spanish? I mostly just need import rights, the admins haven't been active since the 29th of august. I want to provide them with some pages the English version have to attract new editors (currently there's 2-3 editors other than me per week). -- Sixorish 07:15, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

An admin came back a while after I posted this but judging his user page protection with no vandalism occurring before, I don't think he is planning to come back (/any time soon) -- Sixorish 02:28, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Nevermind this - I guess this admin is here to stay. I'll see if he can import some pages just as soon as I explain to him he's not putting pages in the namespace intended... ~enslaves translator. -- Sixorish 17:39, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

arvores (Declined)Edit

Estou procurando informações sobre esta árvores. Seria ela uma Cabreuva? —This unsigned comment is by MarcosPessoa (wallcontribs) 15:41, 1 November 2008 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

No, this is a place to make adoption requests of inactive Wikis; if you are searching informations of trees, see here. Best regards. --Brunoy Anastasiya Seryozhenko (Talk) 15:41, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

F.E.A.R. wiki (Accepted)Edit

I'd like to adopt the F.E.A.R. wiki thanks, I have been editing there on and off since December 2007, we now have a good community going but are in need of a Admin as the current Admin hasn't been active in a long time. Seven279 08:37, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for having the discussion on the Community Portal -- that shows me you've got good community support! I have given you admin rights -- please have fun! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 05:52, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Peize Wiki (Accepted)Edit

I would like to adopt Peize Wiki. I am the one who started this wikia some time ago. Although it does not show much editing, the contents is valid and I plan to do more work on it in the future. Harm 12:56, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

You are the founder, which means you already have admin and bureaucrat rights. It's good to see you editing there again -- I look forward to seeing the project grow! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 05:52, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Sliders Wiki (Accepted)Edit

I would like to adopt The Slider Wiki. It seems to be abandoned. I have added many new pages and started to develop templates. It needs more work that only an admin can do and I am willing to do it. I also have experience as an admin at The Sims Wiki -- a_morris 23:23, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi -- it looks like you've been doing a great job for awhile now on this wiki. You should be all set, and good luck! -- Wendy (talk) 19:08, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

The Left Behind Wiki: A Wiki of the Earth's Last Days (Accepted) Edit

Hello All!

I would like to adopt the Left Behind Wiki. I think I qualify for all of the requirements above, but there are a few catches:

1.) There have been two other editors on the wiki helping me, but they have both personally told me that they aren't interested in adopting it (for proof see this page).
2.) I haven't created all twenty of the pages I needed to create, but by the time anyone will get to this I will have already created them.
3.) I haven't fully been on the wiki for two full weeks, but on the ninth of this month it will be exactly two weeks.

I have fully changed the main page. I have not founded a wiki yet. I have not been granted admin rights anywhere. I have never been blocked on any wiki project. I have expanded and fixed a bunch of pages. I have created a welcome template, and it is in the process of getting customized. I have welcomed all new editors. I have answered all questions and comments on my talk page.

I would like to become a bureaucrat if possible, too, if my request is accepted.


Jonathan W. ~~Please sign my guestbook!~~ / My talk page / My user page 19:03, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi -- you don't appear to have edited anything since you left this message, although you had made a nice start on the wiki up until then. It's great that you talked to the other users first! Please ask again when you have created more content. -- Wendy (talk) 00:45, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
How about now...I have done a lot more with the wiki. Plus, today is the ninth!!!! --Jonathan W. ~~Please sign my guestbook!~~ / My talk page / My user page 03:10, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Nice job -- I've given you the admin rights. Please keep up the important work of creating new pages and welcoming new users! Now you can work on reaching 100 articles and meeting the other criteria for a Wikia Spotlight -- best of luck to you! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 18:32, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Thank you so much for accepting my requests!! You guys do a great thing here!! --Jonathan W. ~~Please sign my guestbook!~~ / My talk page / My user page 19:08, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Futurama Wiki (Declined)Edit

May I adopt that one please? Visit the circus in this link NOOOWWW!! 22:15, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi Toa Makao. I can't find that you've ever made any edits on the Futurama wiki. It could definitely use some love however! There's a lot you can do as a regular editor to help it out, and when you meet the criteria on this page for adoption, please ask again. -- Wendy (talk) 00:49, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Adopting the X-men Wikia (Denied) Edit

I would like to take over this wikia as I have been a regular on the wikia sites and enjoy reading the sites for their information and adding my own information to help create a better site. I have completed editing on the X-men site already as well as Dr. Who, Ghost in the Shell, Naruto and Final Fantasy. Username- ValkryeCain

Hi -- I think it's great you want to work on the Xmen wiki! However you don't meet our criteria for adoption; notably you've only edited for a few days and made 2 new articles. Please get back to us after you've edited for a couple of weeks and made 20 new articles. There's a lot you can do for the wiki as a regular editor in the meanwhile! -- Wendy (talk) 20:04, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Sony wikia (Declined)Edit

I have deep intrest in sony, it's hardware and consoles and would like to adopt the wiki. I may be a new user but I have forgotten my password and have created a new account--Wispa addict 13:05, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

No one has made any edits on in recent months - please start editing and check back with us when you meet the requirements at the top of this page. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 18:32, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Software Wiki (Declined) Edit

Hello, could I adopt the Software Wiki ( There have been no edits there in the last 30 days (except for me and User Angela), and all the bureaucrats are no longer active. So could I adopt the Software Wiki. I have some big plans for it. KrazyKatTalk to me! 22:10, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

You are very new to that wikia and just have created 2 articles (each with one line in it). Please create 20 articles and request again.-- BlueDevil Talk 23:18, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Blue Dragon wiki (Accepting) Edit

I cut this to here because it wasn't answered I'm looking to become a beaureaucrat of the Blue Dragon wiki. It has no active users but me and I'm beginning to work on it. I have been a member of Wookieepedia, Final Fantasy wiki and Kingdom Hearts wiki, am well-versed in wiki formatting. Messia, the wiki's founder, wants it delelted, but I'm more than happy to take over the wiki and build it up properly. So please may I become beaureaucrat?-Super Sephiroth

You've done some very nice things for this wiki. Please be sure to keep creating new pages and welcoming new users -- these are the most important things you can do to make your project a success! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 18:32, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Sabrinia, the Teenage Witch (Declined)Edit

I have one last request. I would like to adopt the Sabrina the Teenage Witch wiki. It seems to have been desserted for the past month, or longer. Elbutler 19:19, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi Elbutler. See the guidelines above. You need to have contributed for 2 weeks, welcomed other users, and added 20 new articles; so far you've only contributed 1 day on this wiki. I think it's great that you want to find a new wiki to work on, but you can do almost everything you need to get this wiki going without being an admin. Once you've contributed more we'll be happy to look at your request again. -- Wendy (talk) 18:53, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
I am turning down this request as you haven't made any further edits on the wiki. I hope that we'll see more help from you there soon. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:06, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Bakugan Fanon Wiki (Declined)Edit

I would like to be a sysop on this wiki. I have been making helpful templates on the wiki, and so, i can do other things too while being a sysop.Digisapien 21:57, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

You're off to a nice start, Digisapien. Please check back in a week or so after you've created some more pages, and we'll be happy to provide you with the admin tools. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk)
I am turning down this request as you haven't made any further edits on the wiki. I hope that we'll see more help from you there soon. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:06, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Open Source (Declined)Edit

There are countless sources out there for free source code, and this wiki is now inactive -- no wonder, there is little interest in another. Instead, I would like to use to become a common knowledge base among open source communities. We all clearly have common problem as the recent GSoC mentor summit showed and yet the communication between us is really low. —This unsigned comment is by Chx1975 (wallcontribs) .

Teen Titans again (Declined)Edit

(from User Talk:Merrystar) Hello Merrystar, a short while ago I requested to adopt the TT Wiki but you said I needed to make more contributions, and I have so can I adopt it now? If not could you at least block User:Simon10? He keeps messing up the Kitten page no matter how many times someone edits it! So please if not the adminship could you at least do something about him please?

Sweatshirt Shiro 02:26, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi. I took care of the problem user for you. You've done a great job over the past few weeks on the wiki adding content -- I'm impressed! I see that there are now a few other users which changes things a little. Could you please welcome them on their talk pages, and make a template to welcome any further contributors (per the guidelines on this page). And then set up a page in either the Forum or the Community Portal (or wherever you want) saying that you want to adopt the wiki, and inviting comments. I can help with a sitenotice to make sure people know about it. If you want to see an example, go to admins on Charmed Wiki to see how it works. -- Wendy (talk) 02:47, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for your interest -- please open a discussion with the other users as Wendy suggests, and let us know the outcome. We'll be happy to hand out the admin tools then. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:56, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Courage (Declined)Edit

Hi. I would like to adopt the Courage wiki. It's inactive, and I've been making lots of edits, and creating several pages.Super grit 23:36, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi Super grit. You're doing a nice job on the wiki. It appears that the founder made an edit on the wiki about a week ago. Could you please ask him about becoming a sysop? -- Wendy (talk) 02:27, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
I see that User:Acethebob hasn't answered your question, but you also seem to have stopped making edits at -- have you lost interest in this project? — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:06, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Since you don't appear to have any further interest in this project, I am closing this request. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:56, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Combat Arms Wiki (Accepted)Edit

I sent an e-mail request for this to KyleH. I'm incredibly active on it and work extremely hard. Please and thank you. I would like to become an admin as I have done more edits than anyone to this wiki. I janitor it, visit daily, make templates and updates, and would appreciate acceptance. Coraircate 22:58, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi Coraircate! I'm afraid that I didn't receive your email, but nonetheless, it looks like you've been doing really good work on the wiki. That said, there are several other contributors who should have a say in who becomes an admin. I have posted a sitenotice on the wiki to give people an opportunity to voice their opinions. Once that has been up for a few days, post a note back here and we can proceed with whatever you guys decide. --KyleH@fandom (talk) 01:17, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
The forum showed no objections, so I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights, Coraircate. Please use them well! You can use Special:UserRights to give admin rights to others if you like. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:06, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

I wanna adopt the CAW Wikia (Accepted) Edit

I've been asking for months to adopt the CAW Wikia, and STILL nothing. There are countless number of vandalism, and I can't do much of anything. If I adopt the CAW Wikia, I can stop it. XtremeTony 05:03, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

CAW Wikia Adoption (Accepted) Edit

As an impartial party,

I am sick of seeing CAW's Wikia being vandalised. There are people who have CAWs and CAW leagues that work hard on their profiles as they do on their leagues.

Now take it for what you will but we either need someone who's always going to remain neutral and nip trouble in the bud or institute a new rule for the Wikias where ONLY people who have signed up can edit pages. I wish I could say I'm qualified for it but there is no qualification for it.....Give someone the job and see what they can do. That's all I have to say.

BlackProductions2k7 05:18, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm willing to adopt the CAW Wikia. Hope that it happens XtremeTony 03:09, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Since there's an active community on this wiki, I've opened up a discussion at -- let me know when the discussion is concluded and I'll hand out the rights as needed. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 05:52, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
OK, since there seem to be no objections, I have made XtremeTony and BlackProductions2k7 co-admins for the wiki. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:06, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

UnRuneScape (Accepted) Edit

There has been some sustained editing by other users, but only recently, and there are no active Beaurocrats or reliably active Admins. Though these requirements are not strictly met, I think I deserve at least Sysop status for my contributions, but cannot do so due to inactivity on the Wiki. The Wiki is not up for adoption; I asked on the forums, and was directed here.--Pig house Talk | UnRuneScape Wiki

17:49, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for putting up a Request for Adminship at -- we'll check back on it in a few days to see if anyone else in the community has any comments. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 18:32, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
You have unanimous support -- I've gone ahead and given you the rights. Enjoy! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:06, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

spongebob (Declined) Edit

The spongebob wiki has no admins to block vandals so I want to be an admin. I've been there since the 28th. --Squidward Squarepants 01:17, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

please? Squidward Squarepants 17:58, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi. The current admin at Spongebob, User:AMK152, was last active about 3 weeks ago. Please contact him on his talk page with your request. -- Wendy (talk) 19:48, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Please talk to the community on active wikis. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:06, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Research situation in Italy (Declined) Edit

I would like to use this Wiki to start a discussion in particular among Italian researchers who are working abroad to share our demands about research situation in Italy and then to turn these demands into projects to carry out together. This Wiki could a starting point to create an association of Italian researchers.

Hi, is there an existing wiki you are interested in adopting? I couldn't find anything specific to Italian researchers. If not, you can ask to create a new wiki at -- thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 18:32, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Please re-open this request if you can provide more detail. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 23:06, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Weebl's Stuff Wiki (Accepted) Edit

After an embarrassing experience at the Requests Wiki, I became the only active member of this abandoned wiki and I gave the owner over a week to come back, like Catherine suggested, and he didn't, so I'm requesting to take the wiki over. I even redesigned the Main Page, the logo, and the welcome template. So far, I've made/remade 25 decent pages and I think it's ready for me to adopt. Here all of my edits there. Also, If I get the powers, can you change it's name to Weeblpedia? JCM (talk·edits) 01:27, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for the effort you've put in there; it's starting to come together nicely. I have granted admin tools to your JCM account and I look forward to seeing what you do with the project.
As to a name change, we've found that sites ranks higher in search engines if the wiki's topic ("Weebl's Stuff"), which people are most likely to use as search keywords, is used in the sitename. We can change it if you really want to, but it may make it harder for people to find your project. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 18:50, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, could you do something like the Wookieepedia, with a surname with the topic's name in it? I'd like it to be "Weeblpedia, the wiki about Weebl's Stuff", but the project namespace be Weeblpedia. JCM (talk·edits) 00:05, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
No, that's not a surname. Wookieepedia appears as Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki because of their modifications to MediaWiki:Pagetitle (See w:c:starwars:MediaWiki:Pagetitle). You can do the same. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 14:19, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, but can I at least change the project namespace to be Weeblpedia? JCM (talk·edits) 00:44, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Ask a Staffmember; I don't have the ability to do that. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 05:15, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
I've changed the name of the Project namespace for you. Keep up the good work! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 20:09, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Voltron (Accepted) Edit

I tried to create a Voltron Wiki since there isn't one yet, but I got the message there already was one. I look through the list of wiki, and its not there, no requested wiki called Voltron to be found anywhere at all, nor is it on the adopt a wiki page. If someone else was going to make it, shouldn't it be listed somewhere? Please help. There is a lot of great information which those editing the regular Wikipedia thought made the article far too long, and I want to restore it since I found all that stuff interesting, plus add additional things as well. Dream Focus 23:28, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi, Voltron has been requested before here, but unfortunately was rejected. You can ask one of the Community Team members to create it for you.-- BlueDevil Talk 23:44, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Sorted by Catherine. Wiki is now available at c:voltron with Dream Focus as founder. --User? 02:36, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Oddopedia (Declined)Edit

Can I adopt it? --User:Binclin/sig 17:45, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

It looks like you've only made a handful of edits there last June -- please work on improving the wiki for a couple of weeks and then we can reconsider. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 20:09, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Fight Club (Declined)Edit

I was wondering if I can adopt it. I've been making some edits to it and need to be admin to improve it further as far the side and top bars go. --User:Ozmanks/sig 10:42 15 November 2008 (UTC)

The wiki definitely needs some love; however, it looks like you've only edited for one day so far. Please keep working on improving the wiki and show us your dedication to the topic, and we'll be happy to hand out the rights. Any staff member or helper can make changes to the menus in the meantime -- just let us know. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 20:09, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Left 4 Dead (Withdrawn) Edit


I am asking to be added as an administrator/bureaucrat for the Left 4 Dead wiki. The current administrator is ShadoW[1], and he did a very good job on creating a wiki for an unreleased game, but now that it's almost time for the game to be released (it is released the 18th), a lot of people are going to be adding content to the wiki and several things need to be changed around (such as a few things on the side-menu thing, whatever it's called).

I've spent several hours[2] editing the wiki, and I'm soon going to look into overhauling the CSS if at all possible. I check up on the wiki at least once a day to see if anything has changed of importance, and I've had a clean track record with Wikia.

I know that pretty much none of the main requirements for adoption are fulfilled here (ShadoW was on the wiki eight days ago), but with a game so close to release, it is my opinion that the wiki needs a dedicated, consistent administrator/bureaucrat to keep things in line, even if it is just temporary until ShadoW starts to become active again. I've left messages on his user talk page, but he has yet to reply to them.

Thank you for taking the time to look over my request.

takua108 09:09, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Never mind, I guess I'm a sysops now :) takua108 11:39, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

F1 Wiki (Accepted)Edit

I would like to adopt the F1 Wiki. I have been working on the wiki for over 2 weeks along with a friend who has been helping. I would like admin capabilities to vastly expand what has already been started. --Gasheaduk 23:40, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Excellent work so far, Gasheaduk! Could you please create a welcome template and start using it to say hello to new users? If User:BananaCat is your friend you might not have felt the need to welcome him, but we feel that talking to new users is a really important part of being an admin. Once that's done I'll be happy to give you the admin tools. Thanks! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 20:09, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
I have added a welcome message to the Wiki and also added this to the Main Page. Please let me know if there is anything else that is needed. --Gasheaduk 20:36, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Thank you! I've made you an admin. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:53, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Kingdom Hearts PT (Accepted) Edit

I would like to adopt the Kingdom Hearts PT . The administrator is not active since 19 of September. I've created more than 20 pages here are all my contributions: . I'm the only person writing on the wiki and active. I'm posting news on the site since yesterday. Before me there were only 4 articles and now there are 31 articles. zexionbrasil 16:58, 17 November 2008 (Gmt- 03:00)

Great start, Zexion! Thanks for following the adoption guidelines. I have given you administrator rights. Please keep creating pages, and be sure to watch Especial:Mudanças_recentes and say hello when new users arrive -- this is very important to helping your wiki grow! Best of luck to you. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 20:09, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

TUGS Wiki (Accepted)Edit

I would like to become an admin for the TUGS wiki. It's been way more than 60 days, I've contributed well to the wiki, I've welcomed others on different sites. Really the site is in dire need for cleaning up and deleting some made up pages. I've improved a template. I would very like to help with the wiki. --Vitas 20:58, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi Vitas,
I see you've been working on the wiki for quite some time, you'll need to create 16 more new articles and continue your great work on expanding existing articles. Ensure to welcome new users as well, this is important to helping the wiki grow. Keep in mind there is a TUGS Fanon wiki available if you encounter that kind of content on the wiki. --User? 16:35, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Yep, as Charitwo said, keep up the good work for a couple of weeks and we'll be happy to give you adminship. Good luck! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:53, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for your persistence; I have given you admin and bureaucrat rights. Please use them well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 22:32, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Infinite Undiscovery wiki (Accepted) Edit

The current rules set up really do not work for this wiki as it is undermade and abaonded 2 months ago by the founder. I have made its existance known on GameFAQ and am asking pwople i know on wikipedia to help me finish the needed stuff like templates and whatnot. Waiting two weeks would be a waste of time as would the article limit as most would be tiny and underformed. --Jakezing2 22:30, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Hellos?--Jakezing2 01:43, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
How inefficent--Jakezing2 16:11, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Hi Jakezing2,
The two weeks is a reasonable allotment in order for you to show us what kind of work you'd put in on the wiki. There is actually lots of work that can be done on inactive wikis as a regular contributor before adoption is needed. If you need help understanding any of the requirements, I'd be glad to answer any questions you might have. You'll need to work on the wiki for about a little over a week and a half more and create 18 more new articles and continue to expand existing articles. Ensure to welcome any of the contributors that you're trying to attract, this is important to building a strong and healthy community. If you need some good tips, the Wikia Help wiki has some good advice pages to get you inspired to build both content and community. Good luck. --User? 16:28, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes lets create 18 more articles, who the hell decided that rule.--Jakezing2 18:29, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
According to the history of Template:Adoption description, it was CatherineMunro. However, I must advice you to calm down. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 18:38, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
how many more to go.--Jakezing2 13:15, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
I've checked your edit count on that wiki, you've currently got over 13 mainspace edits so you'll need five more articles being created. Dark Obsidian 13:32, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Jakezing2, the guidelines were put in place to make sure that people were really interested in working on the topic, not just looking for a new "badge" to wear. If a person is not willing to work on a wiki for two weeks, or to help build new content, then we don't feel they are reliable or interested enough to be a good administrator. The new pages will only be "tiny and underformed" if that's the way you make them, since building good articles is not something that requires admin rights. Please show us what you're capable of and we will be happy to hand out the tools. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:53, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the hard work; you've been doing nice things on the wiki. I've given you the rights, please use them well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 22:32, 28 November 2008 (UTC) (Accepted)Edit

Hello. I have been editing a wikia called for over two months now. The wiki was basicly abandoned when I began editing and so far I have done the vast majority of the> editing along with one other person on it, and have completely reorganised it to make the site much easier to access and to understand. I have added dozens of new pages to it and where possible tried to reuse pages already set up from about a year ago (i believe). Currently there are only two people actively editing this wikia of which I am one , and I have done the vast amount of editing on it (neither of us are admistrators however have been working together to improve the site, and keep in regular contact). I have added three links to the main page so as to keep diffent universes (if that would be the correct word) of Starship Troopers appart ie I added a film section, a tv section, and a section for the Novel. I wondering if it could be made possible for me to adopt this wikia as I am wanting to improve it further and make it look more attractive so hopefully to be able to draw. I dont edit on any other wiki. Thankyou very much. VARGR 00:10, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

It looks like you've done some excellent work on this wiki. I'm impressed with all the new content you've created and expanded upon in the last two weeks. As you mentioned, JustPhil is also contributing to the wiki. You should get with him and see what he thinks about a new admin for the wiki, whether it be you, him, or even both of you. I'm sure staff will have no problem with either of these choices, you've both put some good work into the wiki. --User? 16:46, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Hi Charitwo.
I've just spoken to Justphil on msn a few minutes ago and we are both intrested in gaining admin status for this wiki. Do I just say to you here or is there anywhere I need to go? Thanks VARGR 19:04, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Hey, can you both make that designation on a talk page on the wiki and link it here? When Catherine goes through here and processes approvals, she may want to see that discussion in the form of a diff. --User? 19:33, 20 November 2008 (UTC) We have both agreed to it and written it here. Thanks VARGR 22:31, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! I've given rights to both of you -- please use them well! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:53, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

--Usman mansoor 13:41, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

If you want to create a wikia site for the Pashto Language, if it's not already made please file a request in Forum:Proposed wikis and provide the idea in full description; a wikia staff will review it and will notify you if it has been approved. Dark Obsidian 19:11, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
We have the beginnings of a Pashto Central wiki at -- we would welcome your help to make it a useful guide to Wikia's wikis like this English one is. If you'd like to start a new Pashto wiki about a particular topic, like philosophy or computers or television shows, you can describe what you want at the Requests Wikia. Just choose "ps - Pashto" in the language selector for your request. Thank you very much for your interest! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:53, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Sonic News Network PT (Accepted) Edit

Hi there. I would like to adopt the abandoned Portuguese Sonic News Network, since there aren't any active beaurucrats ou adiministrator for many months. I've been creating new pages and editing existing ones, but I would like to have admin tools to turn this wiki more well known, with a more attractive look and to fix some misleading information that I can't change as a normal user. Greatly appreciated. Alexrd 15:53, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

You've got a great start on the wiki, and there doesn't seem to be anyone else working on it right now. Please keep working for another week or so, and keep creating new pages. You can also create a user page for yourself, and create a welcome template atção:Welcome (or at the Portuguese word for "Welcome"), so that when new users arrive you are prepared to say hello to them. Please keep up the good work and we will give you the admin tools soon. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:53, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
I've been creating more new pages and already created an template. Is there anything left?Alexrd 16:37, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
No, you've made great progress and I'm pleased with how the wiki is growing. Please continue to watch for new users on Recent changes (Mudanças recentes), and building new pages -- it's the best way to attract and build a healthy community! Good luck — Catherine@fandom (talk) 22:32, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Dead Space wiki (Accepted)Edit

I'm requesting adminship on the Dead Space wiki. The previous admin (MasterM) hasn't answered the message I left them on their talk page. I've made many edits and overall expanded many pages on the wiki, and added a link to wikipedia to increase traffic (Yes, it was that unknown). There are only a few active users (5 or so) and an admin is needed. I haven't had a discussion on adminship because there isn't really an active community. I've also begun welcoming new contributors. My Contributions Nightmare Hobo 20:35, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Even if there are only a few active users, then they should have a say in who becomes the admin. Can you please open a discussion on the forum or community portal, inviting them to comment? We can link to it in a sitenotice so that we're sure everyone has a chance to comment. If the response is positive, then we'll be happy to give you the admin rights soon -- it looks like you've been doing a really nice job so far. — Catherine@fandom (talk) 01:53, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Sure thing. I made a topic on the forum, here's the link. Nightmare Hobo 02:45, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, the two most active contributors besides me have commented. Nightmare Hobo 20:10, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
Great! It looks like support is unanimous so I've given you the tools. Please keep doing your best to build this community! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:20, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! Nightmare Hobo 00:55, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Dutch Runescape Wiki (Accepted)Edit

Hi, I would like to adopt the Dutch RuneScape Wiki ( I was told there are no more active Admins there. Here for my contributions. Therealmagicrune 13:58, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your interest! It looks like you have been editing there a long time, and that the other active user Darth Stefan agrees that an admin is needed; you can use w:c:nl.runescape:Speciaal:Gebruikersrechten if you'd like to share admin rights with him. Please keep creating new pages and welcoming new users, and I hope to see the community continue to grow! — Catherine@fandom (talk) 00:20, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
