Hey, so I have been an admin on this wiki: (Link) for about a few months know. I asked a Bureaucrat if I could help "revive" the wiki since it was pretty dead and I have done a bunch of stuff. I have added a new background, added a favicon, added a wordmark, added a discord, remade the top navigation, and even added important pages like a manual of style, rules, and different kinds of policies. ( I'm even working on a new front page but I'm not good at coding ) I'm the only admin that is still active and I am on the wiki daily. ( The other admins haven't done any edits since like 2017 ) The reason I'm saying all of this is because I would like to ask if I can become a Bureaucrat so I can add a new team of admins. I have put many weeks into the wiki and I just want it to flourish.
Konnichiwa, Jenny-San! (Oof. Sorry. I'm an awkward weeb.)
I have seen where Wikis are being shut because of them being duplicates, and I own a Wiki that a lot of people love, but I'm afraid that it could be interpreted as a duplicate, which it is not. It is for all Japanese Media, including anime and manga of course, but also video games that aren't anime and manga related (Such as Metal Gear Solid, Nintendo, Sega, etc.) and also has VOCALOID Pages, as well and music. It's still growing and many Users from several Wikis love it so much. I also make tutorial videos for editing Wikis there and it was recently volunteered for the UCP. I was just coming to ask that it not be closed, as I have heard about many other Wikis going through that. It is widely loved and I don't want it to close. Sorry for the long post. I just know that a lot of Users have expressed how nervous they are about whether it will close. Please have a blessed day!
For your question regarding duplicate wiki closures, staff are only looking at duplicate wikis that were created on the UCP platform (Will's blog here gives more info), so any wiki that was created on the old platform is excluded from this whether or not it could be seen as a duplicate.
Will's blog about it pretty much explains everything better than I could, so I won't go into more detail. Definitely take a look!
Thank you so much! I didn't know about that. It is on the old platform. (Created in early to mid December.) This will give the Users the little peace of mind that they need. I'll pass it along to them. Thanks again, Pikushi! You rock!
Hi DragonBallZ050, I took a look at Weebtopia, and at the moment, it doesn't qualify for a WM. Also, Fandom already has quite a few anime/manga hub wikis & communities doing similar work - are you planning on doing anything special or different with Weebtopia?
Unfortunately, we cannot reopen the wiki - like I mentioned, there are quite a few wikis that cover anime/manga content, & a lot of those include fanon, as well. I recommend hopping in some of those communities to help out.
However, due to TEO's retirement, a new Manager would be sent to my wiki to continue WM support. However, I've overseen the nature of the site, and the wiki is actually not purely a "Gaming" wiki, but also an "Anime" wiki.
Regarding the wiki's current status, the gaming side of the wiki is in good state, but the anime section is extremely lacking contents and proper format. If possible, I would to request that a new Wiki Manager from the Anime Vertical.
HI Pikushi I am Jade. I am new here on the Fandom and wanted to ask if you could help me out with some details on my anime wiki if it's not oo much trouble. I am currently trying to figure out the most detailed way to putmy Fandom works into action. I am working with many different types of series. For example I am in love with the show seven deadly sins but I am uncertain of how to detale it. Should I add just facts or should I keep it fun and interesting I am at a dead zone.
Hi Jade, welcome to Fandom! Most wikis like to keep their wikis encyclopedic, but there are no rules saying that you can't add in fun, as well. :) Each wiki & community has their own personality. Have fun, & feel free to jump into different communities to see what they do, as well!
