Chowder Wiki (Accepted)[edit source]

Hello again, it's me User:The Forgotten Beast. I am here because the Chowder Wiki's founder, User:Themaddog has apparently orphaned his wiki as he has not been active since May 23 2008, and because he was the only admin on the site to keep everything in order the wiki has been plagued by high amounts of vandalism and irresponsible users. My request is not to adopt it, what I really request is for a regular member of the wiki to get promoted to admin or rollback status, or for a staff member from central wikia to go to the wiki and block the harassing users, if my request is denied I have no objections.

-The Forgotten Beast 19:56, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing out the problem -- I've announced the need for a new admin at . Feel free to nominate yourself. — Catherine (talk) 02:03, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
I've promoted the nominees, Webkinz Mania and Aneri, to be the new sysops. Good luck to all! — Catherine (talk) 04:42, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Books Wiki (Declined)[edit source]

Hi there!

I would like to adopt the Books Wiki, but there's only one problem: I haven't made any official edits there yet because I don't want to use the wiki like it was originally intended to be used for. I want to make a books hub wiki like the Entertainment Hub Wiki, and this is because the Entertainment Hub Wiki has next to nothing for books, except for the usual Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Chronicles of Narnia.

I tried to work on just a regular hub page here on the Central Wikia for books, but Merrystar redirected the page back to the Entertainment Wiki Hub and protected the page. Her reason for that is the it had only fanon links on it. I knew that. I had copied the fanon hub page as a starter guide to put links to book wikis, but I had to quit working on wikis for the day, and I couldn't finish my work.

I do highly doubt that I'll get accepted to adopt the Books Wiki and turn it into a hub, so if someone has suggestions and advice for me, I gladly accept it!

Happy 2009!!,

--Jonathan W. My talk page / My contributions / Send me an email 04:45, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi Jonathan -- are you familiar with the Literature wiki? They have a lot of fantastic pages about books and authors and it would be a shame to try and duplicate all that hard work. I suggest you discuss your ideas with the community there while I discuss the possible future of the books.wikia site with other staff members, and maybe we can come up with some good ideas. — Catherine (talk) 02:03, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Jonathan, please focus on documenting books at the Literature wiki for now -- we still feel there's potential in having a Semantic MediaWiki powered site about books, and we'd like to leave it open for the right enthusiast to adopt it in the future. Thanks! — Catherine (talk) 04:42, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

EndWar wiki (Accepted)[edit source]

[1]- contributions Hi! I think that the EndWar wiki DEFINITELY needs some sprucing up. It has been inactive since the game came out, and still has speculation from fans and reviewers if the game will include different things. I would like to help out and recruit more users. I would also help out sprucing up the main page, putting featured articles with bi-weekly changes and cool screenshots from the game. EndWar is big, and the current wiki just isn't up to the task of fully harnessing it's potential. I am also at work getting more users to come help. I apparently now have some adminship but I do not think I have bureaucrat.

Thyrfa 22:11, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

It appears that User:CommanderTony has given you admin and bureaucrat rights on the wiki -- please use them well! — Catherine (talk) 02:03, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Just wondering, how do you promote people to Sysop? Thyrfa 11:14, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

You can use Special:UserRights to promote people to adminship. Please be sure you are following local policy -- only Wikia Staff can remove adminship. — Catherine (talk) 21:33, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

w:c:Biology/Biotechnology/Chemistry/Biochemistry (Accepted)[edit source]

Hello, this may seem like an odd request, and I'm not entirely sure if it goes here. I just found out that there are wikis for each of the above topics, however they all appear to be abandoned. I haven't made any edits to any of them, but I plan to over the next couple of days, and into the future, however I was wondering if these wikis could all be merged into one wiki concerned with all the natural sciences (biology, chemistry, and physics). This would allow for more ease of editing, and would most likely increase interest in editing, since a user could write articles for each topic in one place. As a molecular biophysics student going for a PhD, I have a lot of knowledge about all these topics, and think they should all be centralized under one wiki.

Thank you, Ugluk 02:54, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

(I am also an administrator on the adult swim wiki, however I have pretty well abandoned it. Working on this new wiki would be part of my research career so to speak)

We had hoped the original requesters for these wikis would do enough to justify separate wikis, but if they are abandoned we are certainly willing to merge the biology topics. I feel the Chemistry wiki will probably still merit a separate wiki.
I suggest that you choose one of the wikis to work on and start to create a main page and/or category system that outlines what you have in mind. Once we've had a look at your ideas and have seen your dedication to the topic, then we can begin merging and redirecting the other wiki urls as needed. We can also change the name and url of the site you are working on, if the merged wiki requires it. — Catherine (talk) 02:03, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
I don't see that you've made any effort on any of these wikis, Ugluk. Are you still interested in this project? — Catherine (talk) 21:33, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
I've given you admin rights on the Biotech wiki -- please work on building that up and we can discuss merging other wikis in as your plans progress. — Catherine (talk) 04:42, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Looney Tunes Wiki (Declined)[edit source]

I have been very interested in trying to find every Looney Tunes episode and put in on the Looney Tunes Wiki, but when I wanted to contact the person who runs the wiki, I found that the wiki was inactive! So I wanted to know if I could pick up this wiki, add a page for every episode I can possible, and maybe work on the logo. --Markham2020 04:33, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

There have been many other contributions this month, thought it looks like the editors may not be staying around for sustained effort. Please begin editing and working on meeting the guidelines at the top of this page, with special emphasis on greeting other editors and trying to get them to continue working on the project. In two weeks we'll be happy to evaluate your edits and give you the tools. We'll be happy to help upload a logo in the meantime, if you have one ready. — Catherine (talk) 02:03, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Markham, you haven't made any edits on this wiki yet -- have you lost interest? — Catherine (talk) 21:33, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
Please feel free to reopen this request if you decide to put more work into the project. — Catherine (talk) 04:42, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Arrested Development Wikia (Declined)[edit source]

I'd like to adopt the Arrested Development Wikia if possible. I've created a great deal of new templates, and have reformatted some of the pages to be more aesthetically pleasing. In addition, I have changed the look of the main page as well. I've been attempting to gather other users as well by placing a welcome template on their talk page. I've made strides in creating templates to be used on character pages, as well as on episode pages. --ChristianShephard 04:40, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Excellent work! It looks like there are a few other active editors on the wiki though, who should have a say in who becomes admin. Can you please talk to them about whether they have any objections to you using the admin tools? Thanks! — Catherine (talk) 02:03, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
It looks like you haven't made any more edits to the wiki or talked to the other users about becoming admin there. Are you no longer interested? -- Wendy (talk) 16:07, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
I am closing this request for now -- this is a reasonably active wiki and adminship should be discussed by the community. — Catherine (talk) 04:42, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Ship Simulator wiki (Withdrawn)[edit source]

Hello, I was just calling in to say that I have been gone for many months and my newly started wiki has gone missed. Whats more I have forgotten my username and password for my ship sim wiki and cannot log in. In fact, I think my account was deactivated because it wasn't used, because I think my username was King Luxury and it says that username does not exist. So, on my new account, could I get back some admin tools please so I can really administrate it rather then update it. - GloatyGloat 9:00, January 3 (UTC)


The w:c:shipsimulator wiki exists, with 48 articles in it, and the User:King_Luxury account also exists and has a verified email address -- you should be able to request a new password for it; that account can then give admin rights to the GloatyGloat account if you prefer to use that one. In the meantime, can you please open a discussion with the other active editors on the wiki about your reasons for adoption? Thanks! — Catherine (talk) 02:03, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Aah, so it was King_luxury, not king luxury. I would think that my verified e-mail is my second one which stopped sending emails. It still recived them, though - so I hope I can retrive my account.
Thank you - able to log in now, ill make my other account, GloatyGloat an administrator now, thanks for your help! This ship simulator adoption reaquest is closed (can I write "closed aboove? or is that just a staff option?)

DragonFable wiki (Declined)[edit source]

Hi ,I edit df wiki very often and was wondering if i could even admin it.I would love to help and the only reward I want is adminship or atleast beaurocrat rights

yours hopefully, Artix474 12:22, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

This page is only for adopting inactive wikis. Since there are several other active editors on this project, you will need to start a conversation on the wiki about who should gain admin rights. Once all editors have decided, we'll be happy to grant them where the community chooses. Thank you for your interest! — Catherine (talk) 02:03, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

hey cthrene have u even checked my contributions ,if u visit dragonfable wiki u see the (usuallly)everyday im the only one in latest activity list and i dunno who the heck(if someone thinks "heck"is a bad word then sorry)is admin there so i will be happy even if u made me something lower than admin ,is it impossible to be a beaurocrat of a wiki u dont own?Artix -Human paladin 16:54, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

It looks like Angela has already given you admin rights here. Best wishes! — Catherine (talk) 04:42, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

ALF Wiki (Declined)[edit source]

I want to adopt ALF Wiki,please. --Arruina Cumpleaños 20:53, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi I can't see that you have ever actually made any edits on this wiki. Please look at the guidelines for adoption at the top of this page, and ask again when you meet them! -- Wendy (talk) 15:54, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Special requests for Wiki Adminship(Hong Kong Wikia/zh-hk)[edit source]

Emm...I'm one sysop of The Encyclopedia of Virtual Communities in Hong Kong(EVCHK), it seems that I didn't meet the minimum requirements for asking Wiki Amidships. But I just wanna give attention to Hong Kong Wikia(HKW).

As growing articles in EVCHK, some articles seem more suitable for HKW. Moreover, these two Wikis can be regarded as sister projects for different focus, one from Network Communities, the other from Real World.

However, the founder of HKW has been inactive at least 30 days. For letting members of EVCHK easier handle two wikis, it needs base administration and contributions for HKW.

I think one possible solution is to let whole sysop group of EVCHK also be sysop of HKW, until the HKW community grows larger. However, other solution is also welcomed. --疾風綾希 17:07, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for letting us know the situation -- I have given admin and bureaucrat rights, and I hope that the EVCHK and HKW wikis can work closely together in harmony. Good luck! — Catherine (talk) 05:15, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Polish LinuxWiki adoption (Accepted)[edit source]

[2] – Wiki [3] – My contributions

Hello. I'd like to adopt Polish LinuxWiki. When I enter there first time, there was only a few articles copied from Wikipedia. I've made a big changes including categorisation and I started writing about commands in Linux. New users has a welcome template, as said in guidelines. The actual administrator is inactive since 26. May 2007, so quite long.

Chommik – 18:34, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Great work, Chomnik! I am giving you the tools -- please use them well. — Catherine (talk) 04:42, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Villains Wiki (Accepted)[edit source]

Well I have been on this wiki for about 1 to 1 and a half months. My friends and I have noticed that there is no one truly leading the wiki, and so I have come to the conclusion that I, myself, should attempt to become the new leader. With me the wiki will become a fountain of knowledge of villains. I, Thesecret1070 will make it a great place and do my best. If it is abandoned then I shall fix everything in it and delete bad articles that have nothing to do with villainy.

Hi. I think it's great that you are working so hard on this wiki. I see a few issues with your request. The first is that you have unwelcomed contributors on the site; a wiki admin is also responsible for welcoming new contributors and helping to make the wiki more of community. Could you please customize/create a welcome template and start doing welcomes? Secondly, although you say that you have talked it over with your friends, I can't see anywhere on the wiki where you did that, and I am unclear if your friends are the people on the wiki or not. Could you please post a message (on either a forum, or Talk:Main Page or someplace public) saying that you would like to adopt the wiki and asking other contributors to comment on your request? I can help put up a sitenotice so people will see this. Since there are several other people contributing to the wiki it is important that the whole community agrees on a new admin. -- Wendy (talk) 15:49, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
Well I have talked to my friends about it, mainly Deathwalker 13000. He's my friend we go to the same school, so we talk about it normally at school. ~Thesecret1070
I see you've asked them about it, and that's great. Please also set up a welcome template and welcome any other users that are around. -- Wendy (talk) 02:01, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Ummm....there's already a it won't allow me to make another. ~Thesecret1070

You can start using the one at w:c:villains:Template:Welcome just the way it is (by adding {{Welcome}} ~~~~ to the talk pages of new users), or you can edit the template in any way that you like -- we'd just like to see you talking in a friendly way to contributors, since that's the best way to get people to keep coming back. — Catherine (talk) 04:42, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

From Deathwalker 13000- I think TheSecret1070 should become an admin. He has my vote, anyway. How do you become an admin. anyways?

Hi. thesecret1070 has been given admin rights. Good luck! -- Wendy (talk) 18:50, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! I shall do my best. --thesecret1070??? 21:08, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Inheriwiki (Accepted)[edit source]

I have been a member of Inheriwiki for nearly a year, but have only been active in the past few months. The administrators have been inactive on Inheriwiki since June, so I decided that that I would try to adopt the wiki. I have made many edits to the wiki (link to my contributions) [4], and have stopped some vandalism, which is more common now that the admins have been inactive. However, if you decide I'm not able to adopt Inheriwiki, then I will ask you to consider Drewton, who has also made quite a few helpful edits. [5] (Drewton's contributions link)

Iner22 17:47, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi. I think it's great you want to adopt this wiki. There are several active users on it, so please post on the community portal or the "request for adminship" area and let other users have a chance to comment on your request. -- Wendy (talk) 02:59, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
I would like a reason on why my request was declined, because there is none.--Iner22 17:34, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
My apologies Iner22 -- that was a mixup. Your request has been accepted. -- Wendy (talk) 18:09, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I realize that now that my rights have changed. I must say, you're much faster than me at this.--Iner22 18:14, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Muzyka (Accepted)[edit source]

My Contributions

I've found a polish Music wikia - its Admin has been inactive in like 6 months and I did some editing there recently, so I'd like to adopt it. Diabelko, 21:18, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Nice contributions, Diabelko -- I've given you the admin tools. Please continue to build new pages and welcome new users! — Catherine (talk) 04:42, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Harvest Moon Wiki request (Withdrawn)[edit source]

The Administrater has been inactive for more than 60 days. I am the Co-administrater of the site and contribute a lot to the wiki. I feel like I can do a lot to help this site by getting administration rights. I promise to beef up the wiki as much as I can if I get Administration rights. The link (If you need it) to the site is The Harvest Moon Wiki. I promise not to repeat the mistake that Disco Steve (Past Administrater) and Mistral93 (Current Administrater) have done. Please consider giving administration rights to me. I have been a member of the harvest moon wiki since June of 2008 and have done as much as I can to contribute to the site. I feel like I deserve to be the Administrater of the site.

Yes, you have those rights already, and no, this request should be left here for archiving purposes. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 17:19, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Monopoly (Accepted)[edit source]

I have contributed a lot to the Monopoly over a long period of time, and for the latter half of my involvement, the admin has left the wiki. He has even stated on his user page that he has left to work on a different one. There are some active users, but none have talk pages, except for 'Diceroller', who has been active for one day.

If you let me adopt it, when he has contributed more, I will gladly give him Admin rights.--Matt 20 1 06:19, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

CP Polish Wikia (Accepted)[edit source]

I would like to adopt Polish Club Penguin Wikia. I have never owned any wikia, but I know things about Club Penguin, and I would like to make solutions for this game even more popular for reading on this wiki. Most articles are nearly stubs, and I would try to revive them. But there are no templates, and I could add them. I had corrected most articles on the wiki and added some. And I need to add some more information, but I can do it only, when i get admin permission. Thank you for reading.
PS:Here is the link if you need it.

Hi, I'm not sure how long the admin has to report but it's been a while, I would like to take over if its possible. Thanks FusionFaller 23:07, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Ok, today it's exactly 2 months since the owner last edited (November 12, 2008), I think I have all the requirements and really want to change the colors to make it more apealable for new edits. It seems that nobody is answering adoptions requests however. FusionFaller 08:44, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

RFA for (Accepted)[edit source]

My contributions

With the exception of my contributions, this wiki has been completely dead since October. I have no administrative involvement with any other wikis at this time. I am the only one currently contributing to this wiki's content at all.
There are no other users (yet) to greet, so unfortunately, I haven't been able to welcome anyone. :D
I have been welcoming new users. The wiki is in such a "beginning" state that almost any effort will be an improvement.
Thank you, I am,

Wackypedia (Declined)[edit source]

This Wiki from Wikia: 1
And my contributions: 2

I would like to adopt this wiki that was formerly known as Illogicopedia until it was renamed as Wackypedia and left there for adoption. The admins are inactive, along with the users and the last edit was last month. —This unsigned comment is by Joe9320 (wallcontribs) . Please sign your comments by adding "~~~~" in source editor.

There hasn't been any contributions recently since Wackypedia has been closed to editing. It is currently undergoing a major clean-up in order to start over as "Wackypedia". If you're interesting in rebuilding the wiki please contact Wikia at as stated in w:c:wackypedia:MediaWiki:Sitenotice. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 13:41, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Soldier Front (Accepted)[edit source]

I'd like to adopt because I already have a website dedicated to Soldier Front, but it would be MUCH more efficient to use a wiki layout... Also, if I edit all these pages before I adopt the wiki, they may just be trashed by "vandals", my website is and has 22,000 posts, and over 1000 members. (If needed, I can provide proof that I am the owner/caretaker of these forums). I also have a popular youtube channel, which is dedicated to the education of this game. I have over 2500 subscribers, and have over 700,000 video views total. (I can also prove that I am the owner of this youtube aswell) Since I have already dedicated so much to this topic, just in a different "place" I think I am fully ready and trained to take on this wiki. The person who made this wiki hasn't even made ONE topic. If I am made administrator, I have others that are ready to help. Such as getting information, pictures, and much more.

Please think about your decision, KelseyMF

EDIT: Even though people mad vandalize, I've added 8 pages or so, and counting

You've been editing there for about a week -- to meet the guidelines at the top of this page, please keep up the good work, keep adding new pages, and we'll evaluate again around the 26th. Best wishes! — Catherine (talk) 05:36, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the sustained effort -- I have given you admin rights. Please be sure to watch Recent Changes for new users and say hello, and keep adding new pages! Best wishes — Catherine (talk) 05:15, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Shaman King Wiki (Accepted)[edit source]

I have been working on the page for about a years time, and it is going quite well. When i found the page, it had only a couple of bad copies of the Wikipedia pages and i have been working on adding pages and cleaning up those that was already there ever since, but also because there a lot of character pages that needs to be deleted that cannot just be used as redirects. Gojita 14:08, 13 January 2009 (UTC)Gojita

You've done a fantastic job with this wiki, Gojita. Since there are other active users on the wiki I've added a sitenotice directing them to discuss your request at -- if there are no objections I will confirm your rights in a few days.

PlayStation 2 Fan Fiction (not an adoption request)[edit source]

I would very much enjoy adopting the wiki because I think I can make it a new world of enjoyability to lovers of the system.

Thanks! — Catherine (talk) 05:36, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Mariah Carey Wikia (Accepted)[edit source]


I'd like to take over the Mariah Carey wikia. It doesn't appear that its been looked after for quite a long time now, so I've spent the last few weeks tidying, re-organising and trying to get it better laid out before I start really filling it out with new information. I'm hoping to have increased the number of articles on the wikia to over 100 articles before too much longer.


Thanks for working hard to meet all the requirements for adoption, Factman! I've given you admin rights and look forward to seeing this wiki grow! — Catherine (talk) 05:36, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Bear Behaving Badly Wiki (Declined)[edit source]

I'd like to adopt the Bear Behaving Badly wiki. It hasn't been edited since Febuary 2008 and me and my little brother watch it (I may be a bit old, but it's funny). There seems to be only one person at that wiki (the founder) and only 5 articles. I have seen every episode and my brother knows everything about it. I may be new, but I've been visitng wiki's before, I didn't edit, but I know how they work.

--Loopy-Loopy 13:58, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi. It's great that you are interested in this wiki. However, I can't see that you have made any edits to it yet yourself. Please start editing the wiki and work on it for 2 weeks. Check out the other criteria for adoption at the top of this page. Then ask us again. -- Wendy (talk) 17:46, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Pittsburgh Steelers Wiki (Accepted)[edit source]

Hello there!

My name is I Ross I, I am a current editor at the Pittsburgh Steelers Wiki and I would like to attain Administrative and Bureaucrat rights there. Here is my contribs to the Steelers Wiki.

Questions and Answers

Is the wiki inactive? Yes, I believe the last edit on the wiki was about 1 year ago. Here is the recent changes if you need to see that. Yes, the founder (the only admin and 'crat) has not been active in the past 60 days. I have also sent a message regarding the wiki to his talk page and by email.

Are you eligible to adopt? Yes, I have not founded, adopted, or received sysop powers on any wikias in the past 60 days. No, I have not been blocked on any wikis and I hope that I never do.

Are you contributing to the wiki's content? Yes, I have been contributing to the wiki since January 6th, 2009. I haven't reached the two weeks requirement yet but, if you need me to wait until two weeks have passed, I will be more than happy to oblige. I have been working on creating, expanding, categorizing, and adding images to all the pages. I have created over 20 pages and counting. I have also been working on the main page by adding information, images, colors, and links. Here is my edit count to the wiki.

Are you building the community? Yes, I have made some small adjustments (new image, links) to the welcome template. I haven't been able to welcome new users with the template since there haven't been any, including IPs but, I will welcome any new contributors when I get the opportunity. Again, since there haven't been any new contributors I haven't been able to communicate with a community but, as said before I will once the chance comes.

Additional information/comments. I have submitted a request for a new logo and skin to the Logo Creation Wiki. I also was wondering if you could possibly give me some information on how to attract new users to the wiki? I have already added links to the wiki at Wikipedia and the NFL Wiki.

Please consider my request, as I hope to create a prosperous wikia that will set the bar for sports related wikis.


I Ross I Talk

Update: Toughpigs granted me Admin and Crat privileges, so this request is no longer needed. Although, it would have been nice to see a wiki staff answer it after a few days... I Ross I

Custom Robo (Declined)[edit source]

Can I adopt Custom Robo Wikia? DryGuy

It looks like the wiki has been dormant for a while, but I only see one edit there from you. Please keep participating in the wiki, and you can ask again when you meet the adoption requirements at the top of this page. Thanks for your interest! — Catherine (talk) 05:36, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Shoot Them Up! (Withdrawn)[edit source]

[8] I have been updating and editing this wikia for awhile now, and the current mod wont come back. I have help already at the forum and interest by others. Anyways, the reason I want the feature is to delete 2 or 3 pages that don't belong there. Devilmanozzy

I talked with another user at Shoot Them Up! Wikia and have decided to Withdraw and instead support they interest in being the Mod instead. Devilmanozzy

Playstation (Not an adoption Request)[edit source] I want to adopy this wiki, and translate it to the Spanish.

-AndSalX 23:51, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Please Add in wikia

Please go to Requests Wikia and ask for a new es.Playstation wiki -- we'll be happy to create one for you! — Catherine (talk) 05:36, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Shoot Them Up! (Accepted)[edit source]

Hello. I wish to adopt the Shoot Them Up! Wikia as the current mod has not been active for quite a while. I have been actively updating and adding pages, as shown Here. The Wikia itself was inactive for a time before me and another user joined and began to work on it.

During that time, I have had dialog with several users concerning how the pages should be formatted, what information should be contained in them, and other general issues. I have also mentioned to others about Shoot Them Up! and it is posted in my user page as one of the Wikias I help maintain. Even though I help with other Wikias, I am not an admin, mod, or owner of them.

I thank you for your time in regards to my request. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to leave me a message.
GrandViper 04:31, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi I wanted to add my support to this request being another poster at Shoot Them Up!. I have worked with GrandViper at both the wikia he is requesting to adopt and Gradius Wikia and in both cases were great experiences. He knows how to work with others and to resolve issues with users. Devilmanozzy 06:12, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the cooperation and support of one another. Since you two are the active users, and you've done a nice job on the wiki so far, I am going to give GrandViper the tools. Please keep up the good work, and focus on building new pages and welcoming new users! — Catherine (talk) 05:36, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you very much! We will make the Wikia even better!
GrandViper 22:40, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Urban Rivals (Accepted)[edit source]

It seems the creator of the Urban Rivals Wiki requested it on November 7th, 2008, but has since not done anything to it. I have begun work on the Wiki, and am working on creating templates and adding raw content, as there was nothing there in the first place. I am requesting adminship of this Wiki so I can do more with it.

Applepedia (Accepted)[edit source]

Hey I was Wondering if me and a friend could take over Applepedia. If you could Make me and Jebus4eva Bureaucrats. We would recruit more people onto the site and help fix it up. Thanks. Here our Links To our pages:

Since it appears that Jebus was an admin on this wiki with a previous account, I have granted you both rights as requested. We would be delighted to see this wiki come to life -- Apple products are very popular and we feel a wiki could be a great place for people to collect and share information and opinions about them. Please concentrate on creating new pages and welcoming new users! — Catherine (talk) 05:15, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

wrestling legends (Not an adoption Request)[edit source]

pro wrestling wikia is good but wikia would be better with a wiki about the legends of wrestling classics that made wrestling entertainment what it is today it would be a good website for the classic wrestling fans to read about what they didnt know about the favorite superstar and would teach kids about wrestling history so they would remember the classic superstars —This unsigned comment is by Wooodude1 (wallcontribs) .

Please go to Requests if you would like to create a wiki for the legends of wrestling classics; this is a page to adopt wikis which already exist. -- Wendy (talk) 14:52, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Zombiepedia (Declined)[edit source]

Hi there! The name is Santarus and I've been coming to Wikia for quite some time. I've recently come across a Wikia that could use my help. It is called Zombiepedia and since I am a huge fan of Zombies in movies and in legend, I think adopting the Wikia would be in everybody's best interest. I have not made any contributions to the Wikia in question but this is only because there is a lot of work to be done before I begin on articles. I have a ton of ideas to make it a fantastic community, all I need is Administrator power.

Thank you for your time


Hi Santarus. I think it's great that you are interested in helping out the Zombie Wiki. There are two active admins there right now -- User:Madmonkey24 and User:Zeno Panthakree. The latter edited the wiki just a few days ago. Please talk to one of them about the changes you want to make and the possibility of becoming an admin. -- Wendy (talk) 19:37, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Villains Wiki (Accepted)[edit source]

It is I, Deathwalker 13000. I would say hi if it was in a villain's place to pleasantly greet someone. Lets skip the pleasantries, the thing is: I wish to become an administrator on the Villains Wiki. Why, you ask? because I want to clean the place up. I've been a user on the wiki for several months now, and nobody except my friends TheSecret1070 and Saber-X1138 have really done anything productive year?

Plus, I'm trying to encourage several other people I know to contribute, because I feel the wiki is being abandoned, and I want to help this wiki expand. I also feel I could help more if i did become an admin. —This unsigned comment is by Deathwalker 13000 (wallcontribs) . Please sign your comments by adding "~~~~" in source editor.

Hi Deathwalker. Since we just gave admin powers to TheSecret1070, it is up to him now who else will be an admin. Please ask him to leave a message for me on my talk page if he wants you to share the admin status with him. -- Wendy (talk) 14:47, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

All That Wikia (Declined)[edit source]

All That Wikia only has a few pages it has been inactive for a long, long time. I would be on that page everyday. It's my favorite show. I would hate to see it stay like that. I go on wikia everyday so I would contrubute. —This unsigned comment is by Weblykinly (wallcontribs) . Please sign your comments by adding "~~~~" in source editor.

Hi Weblykinly. It looks like you have not made any contributions to this wiki yet. Please look at the adoption criteria at the top of this page, and start working on the wiki. There is a lot you can build and improve without having the admin tools. When you meet the criteria ask us again. -- Wendy (talk) 14:50, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Pikcanon-NOT (Declined)[edit source]

Hello Wikia Staff!

The wiki Pikcanon-NOT was started by Rocky0718, who is is the only bureaucrat and has abandoned the wiki to its users. He has been asked to come back but refused because of a problem that he couldn't log-in or something like that. I have asked User:Kirkburn for bureaucratic powers for someone on the wiki, hopefully me, and he referred me to here. So even though another admin has posted there within the last few days I still ask for the adoption papers for Pikcanon-Not, not because I need admin ship, but because someone on that wiki has to be a bureaucrat and as far as I know, I am the first to ask. My contributions there are here, my user page there is here. Please aprove my request for the adoption of Pikcanon-NOT, so I can help this wiki improve to eventually become a very popular wiki.

Respectfully yours,

Sir Pikmin

The admin Rocky appears to be reasonably active there -- please leave a note for him at about your desire to become a bureaucrat. There's a lot you can do to help the wiki become popular, without needing 'crat rights (which only allow you to create new admins) -- mainly creating new pages and welcoming new users. Good luck! — Catherine (talk) 05:15, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

TYPE-MOON Wiki (Accepted)[edit source]

Hello. I would like to adopt TYPE-MOON Wiki. Founder has been inactive for about a year and a half, other admin for 9 months, and both are not responding to their talk pages. The wiki itself has been active and growing, and while we had external admins deleting spam, now we need an active admin to have more control over the wiki (task at hand is editing some protected pages). I have been proposed twice (on my Talk Page) to take on the adminship, and since both admins are inactive, I came here to ask if I can be granted admin rights.--Azaghal 23:14, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

You've put in some great work here -- I'm delighted to give you the tools. Please use them well! — Catherine (talk) 05:15, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Brothers in Arms Wiki (Accepted)[edit source]


I'd like to take over the Brothers in Arms Wiki as it has been very inactive, in the space of nearly a month only a total of 50 (estimate) edits. I would like to take it over even though I have only edited once or twice cos i am busy on Halopedia and Halo Fanon but I am free now to devot my time to this clearly struggling wiki.

I am Going to approach this differently. Me and a Friend of Mine (Called Forerunner) are now starting to Edit Brother's in Arms Wiki, because it's inactive and almost all of it's edits are I.P Based and it's Admin is inactive(They dont even have a Userpage!), so I would like to devout as much of my time as physicaly possible to helping this wiki.


Gunnery Sergeant McCallan

Forgot to add I am now creating Templates.

Thanks for volunteering to put in the work to meet the adoption requirements. You're off to a nice start, and I will check on your progress when you've been editing for two weeks (around the 30th).

Please keep up the good work, Joshie. You've done a nice job welcoming others, but I haven't seen a lot of new page creations -- can you please focus on that for a few days? You can look at for some ideas. — Catherine (talk) 05:15, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Wiki (Declined)[edit source]

Hello! I saw some time ago that the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Wiki (Millionaire wasn't edited by anyone, barring me (and my IP), for more than 1 year! So, I would like to adopt this wiki. I'll try to do this Wiki bigger.

Regards, Kubek15 16:44, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi Kubek15. I see that you have only made one edit there in the last six months, and there are only 8 articles total.

Ghostbusters Wiki (Accepted)[edit source]

Ok basically the mod hasn't been back in 2 months, and I'm a pretty big fan of the Wiki. I don't know what happened to the mod, but since he doesn't seem to be coming back, and already one act of vandalism has happened once, I'd like to be the mod, mostly to protect it.

Universal Fighting System Wikia (Accepted)[edit source]

Hi. I am requesting to adminship of the UFS TCG Wikia. It has been inactive for quite sometime and I feel I can once again bring it back to life again. I already have the support of some in the UFS player community who will be glad to help me with it so I won't go it alone. I have been a player of the game for the last four years and have been a judge and tournament organizer for the game during that same amount of time.

Thank you for the consideration.

Here is the discussion where I was talking about starting it over:

Adpotion Request- Villains Wiki[edit source]

Hello, It's me, [13000], admin to Villains wiki. Me and the other admin user, TheSecret1070, have noticed that the bureaucrats for this wikia have, well, abandoned Villains Wiki. They've been inactive for almost two years (Villainous Count Bleck's last edit was in September 2007). We both wish to become bureaucrats.
