Hello, I am the founder of Wiki Of Stuff. Recently, I noticed that my site was shut down. However, this was the fault of a group of hackers who go by the name of Dr. Justin Bieber :) and a few other users.
Hi Angela, I hope not to waste your time writing in the wrong page. I would like to adopt The 4400 English wiki.
There are some things that probably would be against this adoption: I only found that wiki today, I'm not a perfect English-speaker user, and I don't know perfectly all the things about this universe. But there are also some good points for me: I'm an admin of the Italian One Piece wiki (which doesn't mean anything except for the proof I'm a good admin), I love the 4400 universe and the wiki is of course abandoned. My idea was to work on the easiest part of the wiki, adjusting interlinks, images, categories and whatever is needed. I would like to become an administrator to have the power to delete unused images, double redirects, to rollback some hacker's edit, etc. Thank you for reading, Meganoide.
Hi. With the trouble we seem to be receiving on the MUGEN Database at the moment, I wanted to ask this. Is there a way to change what a user group can do? Say to prevent Wikia Contributors from creating pages (still allowing them to edit them). This would cut down on our problems by a HUGE amount.
If a wiki is receiving heavy amounts of vandalism, you can get a temporary protect site (disallowing anonymous users from editing). In the long term, the Abuse Filter extension is the better bet. The AbuseFilter is an extension that allows you to set conditions. If those conditions are met, you can choose what happens then (usually stopping the edit from happening). Special:Contact to talk to staff about either.
This is an available option, but in my experience it doesn't really stop vandalism for long. It's more of a short-term solution to an acute vandalism problem, especially because of the large percentage of recent new pages that have been kept that are by non-logged in users - I wouldn't recommend this as a good solution.
What kinds of vandalism problems are you having? As TK has said, AbuseFilter might fit your needs better, as you can set up tags for the kinds of edits that might be a problem, and even block certain edit patterns as it suits you.
Perhaps not recent-recently, but around Christmas last year, we had massive floods of unregistered users creating random (and sometimes offensive) pages - to prevent this from happening again, if there was an option to change what user groups can do on the wiki, I would make it so that unregistered user cannot create pages.
I've tried to have this happen before on Roblox Wikia (wiki I'm an admin at). They do not allow the layout to be changed. The only wiki with a "wikipedia like" layout is uncyclopedia. Oasis can be personalized to look good, and some wikis have done well with the oasis (including COD wiki as an example).
Yes, the layout is terrible at default, however it's easily customizable to look ok. There's some things you can't change in the layout, however a cool background and colorful layout can make the design good. You can't change it.
Hello. It looks like there's an error on your wiki causing some of the text to be in the wrong place. Hopefully once that is fixed, you'll find the layout less terrible. I recommend asking for help on the forum or contacting Wikia staff.

I wanted her to have the same layout of Wikipedia because it is a parody of Wikipedia
As PlasmaTime said earlier, this is not possible. Wikipedia uses the Vector skin. Wikia uses the Oasis skin. You cannot change the skin of a wiki hosted by Wikia.
You can customize how your wiki looks by using the Theme Designer tool or by using CSS coding, but you will not be able to make your wiki look exactly like Wikipedia because the skins are different and you cannot change the skin.
If you have other questions about your wiki, please use Special:Contact to talk to Wikia staff.
