I was just wondering how long it usually takes to re-review an adoption request (it's been more that a week? [1])Sw9889.jpg (Have something to say?) 03:39, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

  • I typically wait for people to reply (or look into it if long periods go by) when I ask them to continue editing. Now that you've replied, I'll take a look. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 03:51, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

w:c:3rd Rock from the sun

Firstly thank you for the wiki, second of all, how can you change the name of a wiki (I would rather it be called 3rd Rock from the Sun Wiki, or 3rd Rock Wiki thank you. --Sw9889.jpg (Have something to say?) 17:46, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

  • We would have to do that for you. You can send a request to Special:Contact from the wiki, providing us with the new name you'd like for the wiki. We'll get to it ASAP! =) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 17:48, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

Adoption of the Nerf Wiki.

Dear Brandon,

I think we all agree that I should be Bureaucrat. First on my list of things to do will be to grant Admin status to Jetcell. I will take great care.

Kind Regards, Timmah911 07:47, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

  • Thanks for letting me know the consensus. I've noted that for when I go through the adoption page today. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:34, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

Adoption of the Wii Sports Wiki

Hello, I'm Mighty the Hedgefox and I wish to adopt the Wii Sports Wiki. My adoption request has gone by for 5 days with no responce. Can you or another 'crat review the request? It is on the Cental Requests page. Thank You Mighty the Hedgefox "I pity the fool!"-Mr.T 00:16, September 25, 2010 (UTC)


I'm just wondering if Wikia is considering updating Extension:Cite/Cite.php in the next big release / update. The newer version of Extension:Cite has new neat features as explained at mediawikiwiki:Extension:Cite/Cite.php#Separating_references_from_text. For example,

Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.<ref name="helloworld1"/>

John ate a banana.<ref name="helloworld2"/>

<ref name="helloworld1">Hello World</ref>
<ref name="helloworld2">Nice to meet the world again</ref>

doesn't work in Wikia's current version. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 00:21, September 25, 2010 (UTC)

The legend of the legendary heroes wiki

I left a message on the adoption page about the legendary heroes wiki, i've just hit a problem on the wiki and can't continue editing it until i figure this out. should i continue to try and get ahold of the founder? Was269 15:51, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for Admin

Brandon, not only did you quite promptly approve Admin status for me at "Kyle XY Wiki", you even did it over a weekend. Thanks! - Thumlyly Sept. 27


can you make me a wiki? my computer has a hard time loading, and i want to create a wiki. if you can, can you make me a wiki called Regular Show Facts? that will be all.

Adoption Requests

Can you please look over the requests now? Many people would like to have the rights, and toontown wiki has been waiting for 3-4 days now. Thank you, User:GameGear360

  • None of the requests have had to wait longer than three days and, as the information at the top of the page says, you should allow 2-3 days for your adoption request, as we look over new ones every few days. I'm planning on going through some of the new ones tonight—including Toontown. =) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:05, September 28, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you :] I really need to gain admin on my wiki to delete some stuff. {{SUBST:User:GameGear360/sig2}} 23:21, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. I just wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten but my internet went down last night, so I'm editing on my phone right now. I can't do adoption requests from my phone, so hopefully my internet is back up when I get home later. =) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 14:44, September 29, 2010 (UTC)

Becoming A Helper

I would Like to become a wikia Helper like you but do not know how. Can you tell me please? Also please can you reply on my talk page please? Thank You Admiralalexmann 19:55, September 29, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi. Helpers are contracted employees hired by Wikia. Open helper positions are posted to the corporate site's hiring page when available. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:27, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

Backyardigans Wiki

There has been some major vandaisom and negivie events at the Backyardigans Wiki. Some idiot renamed pages and created insaults to the characters. The wiki was abandoned by it's creators, and now somebody messed it up. I wanted to go check it out, but now there is nobody but that vandal. What should we do? I cannot leave the Spyro Wiki, because I am their hope. Please say something on my talk page. UxieLover1994 15:48, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

I put a message on the front page to make sure the wiki gets back on track, but then again, it could take up to three years to get fully back on track. Should I adopt that wiki, amigo? UxieLover1994 16:09, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. If I remember right you just recently adopted a wiki, so you won't be able to adopt another one until 60 days after the day you were given rights in the last request. For now, though, you could talk to the VSTF to ask for help in cleaning up after the vandal. Hopefully that takes care of it! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:25, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

Wii Sports Wiki Fourms

Thanks for giving me the sysop rights to the Wii Sports Wiki, but I'm having trouble getting the fourms set up. "The Nineteenth Hole Hotel" sub-fourm doesn't show the time when the last edit was made and who it was made by. Can you fix it? Thanks! Mighty the Hedgefox "I pity the fool!"-Mr.T 22:17, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

  • I've never really been good with the forum coding, unfortunately. The best place to ask would be here on our community forum, where those who know much more than me about this will be able to give you some pointers. =) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:29, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

About the

Hi, I still want to be the Admins for the Agent-347 have not been on the for week & he only come online few time a day. Can you please talk to him to grant me to be an Admins? I could be his 2nd. Admins. To let you know i been online on everyday & that Admins "Agent-347" only only few time a week. If you could see i got higher edited than Agent-347. Agent-347 is a slow Admins & i am the one fixing everything on the site. Now please talk to him. Thank, ICarlyFan2009 (Edmund) 06:03, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi. I'm sorry, but it wouldn't be appropriate for me to step in when I don't know much about the wiki's community. The best I can advise is to talk to the current bureaucrat about this. Perhaps you could suggest to him/her that the community hold a vote to see if there should be a new admin and, if so, who that new admin should be? - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:50, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

About Agent-347:

Ok, Find but here some thing you should know about Agent-347.
Agent-347 only come & check thing out.
Only did few edited for some pages.
Clear unwanted users.
That it...
Than he leave & never came back until a week. Check out Agent-347 contributions here & see that he been inactive for 123 days. Here how days in each month Agent-347 been inactive:
28 days in March 2010, 9 days in April 2010, 13 days in May 2010, 50 days in June 2010, 18 days in July 2010, 15 days in August 2010, & 15 days in September 2010.
Agent-347 is never around when i need him to check out some pages.

It is best that i be an Admins for the nickelodeon.wikia & have Agent-347 as my co-admins because he never around & i am the one who doing all the work on nickelodeon.wikia.
ICarlyFan2009 (Edmund) 23:13, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

  • I'm sorry but there's nothing more I can do. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:34, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Brandon Rhea
I just found out that Agent-347 is 16 years old & still go to High School.
Agent-347 real name is Cameron Vanacker.
I have read the "User Conduct" on the 'Terms of Use'
It said on the first note: "Harass members of the Service".
Well Agent-347 is Harass me.
Agent-347 is 16 years old & i am 35 years old.
Agent-347 (aka Cameron Vanacker) can't Harass an older user.
Also said in the 6th note: "User Conduct" on the 'Terms of Use':
"Solicit personal information from any user under the age of 18"
That mean i don't take order from a 16 years old Admins like
Agent-347 (aka Cameron Vanacker).
Can the nickelodeon.wikia (aka Nickipedia) go to a me as the new Admins? Since i found out Agent-347 age.
Agent-347 maybe an Admin but the nickelodeon.wikia (aka Nickipedia) need an
adult Admins.
Please let me know?
Thank: ICarlyFan2009 (Edmund) 18:20, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

  • There is nothing wrong with a 16 year old administrator. That is not against the Terms of Use. Many administrators on Wikia are 16 years old. "Solicit personal information from any user under the age of 18" means that Wikia cannot require personal information from anyone under the age of 18, which we do not. If you feel you are being harassed, please send a message to Special:Contact from the wiki, and a community team member will look into it. However, we cannot help you become an administrator, as I have already explained to you. This will be my last message on that matter. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 18:58, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

Well, Agent-347 had block me from that nickelodeon.wikia (aka Nickipedia) for threatening him but i was not.
Thank you for not helping me.
Now i am block from the nickelodeon.wikia (aka Nickipedia) page by
ICarlyFan2009 (Edmund) 19:47, October 6, 2010 (UTC)


You claim to have heard our complaints about the new skin, and you've "addressed" them. But that doesn't fix the problem! This new skin will create headaches for most users! It will mess up the skins that took wikis forever to get looking just right, and it will force us to leave Wikia for good. If this is truly a community site as it claims to be, then why don't you listen? Leave Monaco as a option! Please! Roxy13~Dad, I'm a fairy! 23:01, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi. I'm a Helper, not a member of Wikia Staff. While I work with the community team, I'm not really involved in the transition to the new look other than answering questions I know how to answer. Your criticism would be best left on the staff blog, where the staff is reading what you have to say. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:28, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

That's just it! They're not reading it, not really! If they were, then they wouldn't be doing this! I've tried, believe me, but they don't listen! Roxy13~Dad, I'm a fairy! 23:31, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

  • Yes, they are reading it. I work with them every single day, so I can tell you with 100% certainty that they read every single comment that's posted. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:34, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
    • Is there some unified place why they're responding to concerns about the new skin? My pet peeve is the new "added by" attribution for uploaded images. I can't figure out how someone in their right mind could think that was a necessary idea, and I'd like to see them justify it. Or give permission to block it. (My reasoning is here.) --GrantB 15:34, October 28, 2010 (UTC)

Well, that's it then. I'm seeing what I can do to move my wiki somewhere else, because this new skin just won't work. Thanks for your time. Later. Roxy13~Dad, I'm a fairy! 23:38, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

  • I'm sorry to hear that. I do hope you stay here, but I wish you good luck if you choose to move somewhere else. If there's anything you need in the interim, though, feel free to let me know. =) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 23:44, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

I have a vandal on The Sarah Jane Adventures Wiki. ( The User has now posted obvious vandalism onto the site and has recently posted pornography. As we have no active admins, we cannot do anything about it. Can you please do something about him before he gets out of hand again. cheers Mini-mitch 21:12, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

The wiki is actually w:c:thesarahjaneadventures. It was created for w:c:thesarahjaneadventures:User talk:DeathMouse101[2] on 1 September 2009 at 19:25 UTC, making him sole Administrator and Bureaucrat. That user has not contributed since that day, and has not made any other user an Administrator or Bureaucrat. The offender appears to have been w:c:thesarahjaneadventures:Special:Contributions/Powerguy, who was blocked about three hours 41 minutes ago at 23:27 UTC.[3] Please report any future vandalism in a new section on page w:c:vstf:Report:Vandal. The wiki became eligible for adoption on Halloween, 31 October 2009, about 11.5 months ago.   — Jeff G. 03:08, October 16, 2010 (UTC)

Your opinion on a matter

Hello Brandon Rhea,

I'd like you to have a look a forumthread I started some days ago. This one. As you can see I'm asking a question about why the Fallout Wiki, when viewing it through Oasis, has a Portal page without sidebar and why mine does have a sidebar. A guy called TimeShifter gave a vague reply saying Fallout uses Oasis and give me some big irrelevant link, but.. I use Oasis too and we're both not one of the five beta-Wiki's so I didn't catch his point.

A while later I had received an answer on Fallout Wiki. They said I can request the sidebar to be removed through Special:Contact. TimeShifter, meanwhile, I think tried to tell me that from 20 October onwards Oasis will be manatory and Portal pages won't have a sidebar anymore. He never said that directly, but instead just gave vague answers and loads of links to other wiki's and blog-posts. Even when I more or less assumed that he meant to say that on 20 October the sidebar will be gone, he refused to confirm it, said "ignorance is bliss" and went on with his vague answers.

Well, I don't know but I had the feeling that he, by being so vague I never litterally saying "Yes, on 20 October blabla..." he was just trying to toy around and piss me off. I think I know the answer, but I'm the kinda guy that always needs a simple yes or no and I think that's what this forum is meant for. If I wanna know if a car can drive on diesel, will he send me a link to a Wikipedia article about that car? Well... anyway, perhaps you can have a look because it kinda annoyed me and perhaps my view on the matter has become too one-sided. If you agree with me, perhaps you can give the answer to my question on there, delete all but the first message and lock the topic. Thanks. ---Zantam03 (Talk) 17:59, October 18, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi. I don't actually know the answer to the question, but I'm going to look into it for you. I'll let you know once I have an answer. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 01:36, October 19, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Special:Contact

Thanks for the response!

It's weird; I was able to edit after only a few hours. Maybe it's a glitch or something?

heraldofmeridian♣ 00:04, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

  • Probably. That happens every so often. Glad it's working now! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:27, October 23, 2010 (UTC)

Customizing a Wiki

I was wondering how (as an admin/beuracrat) I could customize my wiki, I.E. change the colors, default skin, etc. thanks.--Sw9889.jpg (Have something to say?) 01:27, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

  • With the new look, there are two ways you can do this. You can use the Theme Designer, located in your My Tools, to create a theme for the wiki. Click here for a help page about the Theme Designer. If you know coding, you can make an advanced theme using Wikia.css. Hope that helps. :) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:27, October 23, 2010 (UTC)

Can you help me?

Hi, Brandon. I need to know how to remove brearucat rights from people. Can you tell me how?BloomPurple11-Fire Arrow 15:20, October 23, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi. Bureaucrats can only remove bureaucrat rights from themselves, not from other bureaucrats. If someone needs their bureaucrat rights removed, feel free to send a message to Special:Contact from the wiki. :) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:27, October 23, 2010 (UTC)

Wiki categories

Hi, me again, i noticed on some wikis on the bottom they have something that says "wikia's entertainment wikis" or "wikia's cooking wikis" or something like that. My wiki doesnt have that

Here, i put up pics so you can see what i mean;

Sw entertainment 2.jpg
Sw entertainment.jpg

My question was how i can get my wiki featured on one of those things circled in black And how can i get those things to also be displayed on my wiki? (just in case you're wondering those screen shots are from swfanon =).--Sw9889.jpg (Have something to say?) 22:57, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Spam Blogs

Do we need to see 3 blogs for GHD hair straighteners for the last 2 days !! this sort of rubbish just reinforces the idea that staff are not taking any notice of blog posts to users. (Your sigs on the welcome notice for User:Yingjun16 who posted them so i'll report then to you).

A useful fix for the new skin would be a report button for unsuitable blogs but the new skin dropped the old version of that idea - duh brill idea that for improving accessibility wikia ! The only thing the new skin has achieved is to up the usage of blogs & most of them are worthless posts a lot of which would have got deleted under the old talk pages as vandazism by other users. PS dont bother suggest i use special:contact as i dont like the system as it gets ignored & others cannot see it.

BTW you are doing a good job trying to defend/explain some of wikia's changes when replying to Forum posts lately as most staff appear to have deserted the Forum. - BulldozerD11 17:36, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. I've deleted those hair straightener blog posts. One thing to remember in the future, though, is that while this is the central wiki, it's still a wiki—so the emphasis on local administrators handling local problems is still there. If you see that a blog isn't being deleted, Charitwo is a great person to contact, as he's an admin here on Community Central and is more than happy to help with any clean up that's needed. Thanks for letting me know, though! :) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 17:44, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Please bring Back the Monaco Site Layouts?

Hi Brandon I notice the change of the Skin to Site Layouts on the main page
but you should not take out the other skin.
I like my wikia with the Space Skin Layouts.
Please put the other Site Layouts back?
Everyone (All Users) don't like the new look. The Site Layouts should have all 3 Site Layouts.

The 3 Site Layouts are:

  1. New Wikia Look
  2. MonoBook Preview
  3. Monaco

It should have all 3, Not 2.
Please put Monaco back online?
It not right to take something out that we all like.
So again, Please bring back "Monaco"?
ICarlyFan2009 (Edmund) 07:19, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi. Please remember that I'm not Wikia Staff, so the decision to keep or remove a skin is not up to me. Feel free to send your thoughts to Special:Contact. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 14:00, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Brandon

Hi, Brandon, I wanted to ask is there a way to manualy edit the source of the Wiki so it has Monaco? I really don't like the Oasis skin..... {{SUBST:User:Raging Blast/siggy22}} 16:55, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

  • Unfortunately no, there's not, because we can’t continue to support multiple skins; if we supported all past skins, we would have half a dozen different skins. The problem with allowing multiple skins is that we can only realistically develop features for one, and unsupported skins will inevitably break. Monaco is included in that, particularly because Monaco, by its nature, is very complex and sophisticated. We like Monaco too, but resources are finite and we’ve decided to put our resources into this new skin. Hopefully that helps explain it a bit. - 17:09, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, tnx, but I have one more question. By some ressearches, I actually menaged to change 4 skins on wiki! Go to this URL's to see:

What is this? The 3rd one looks like Modern Blue skin (or something simmilar)

Well, tnx anyways :)))) 18:22, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

  • That's not changing the skin. That's viewing one page with a different skin. You can be using the new look and add ?useskin=monobook to the end of a URL, but that doesn't mean you've changed the skin. As soon as you click a link to go to another page, that code disappears and you'd be using the new look again. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 18:42, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

But why can't I use Monaco by simply "changing the skin"? 2. and 3. aren't skins that are optional of preferences, but they could be seen. So why not Monaco?

I just wanna know, don't take this offensive :) 19:32, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Hell, my username is Finchelfanno1, could you please look at my adoption request because the Glee Wiki needs one more admin. and i would like to to one. I'm ranked high, contribute daily, edit vandalised pages and i'm online most of the time. I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank You, Bye. Finchelfanno1 03:24, November 11, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry if I sound pushy, but would you mind approving my adoptin request faster. I put it up there a few days ago and nobody has responded yet. Sorry, but I like to work very fast. And another question if you go to any wiki do you automatically have admin powers? Red SoxGo Red Sox!!!

*Hi. Sorry it's been so slow. We'll get to the requests in the order they're posted, and I'll be going through a number of them tonight. About your second question, yes; I have admin and bureaucrat rights, as well as others, on any wiki I go to. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:02, November 15, 2010 (UTC)

I understand. And thats pretty cool getting admin and bearucrat powers automatically! I must also say I like your user name too. Its pretty cool. Red SoxGo Red Sox!!!

Adoption Request

Hi, I requested to adopt a wiki but today one of the administrators logged on just to tell me I was doing a good job. He is not a bureaucrat so there is no point in asking him to promote me. My question is with him now having technically made an edit, can I no longer adopt the wiki? He has not contributed to the actual wiki for two months.--God (Pray) 02:18, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

  • I don't have much of a problem with it. Can you ask him what he thinks about it? - Brandon Rhea(talk) 02:20, November 16, 2010 (UTC)
    • I left him a message asking if he was alright with me being an admin. I don't know when he will get back to me though--God (Pray) 02:29, November 16, 2010 (UTC)
      • If he doesn't get back to you in a week or so, and he doesn't continue editing, feel free to put in your request. Just remind me about our conversation here or else I might forget. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 03:00, November 18, 2010 (UTC)

Could we possibly bump that week down a few days as there are so many things I want to do on the site that I can only do as an admin? I will wait if need be but I would really like to start doing some of this stuff by the weekend. Also, once that is over, how do I get my request rechecked since it is on hold?--God (Pray) 06:04, November 18, 2010 (UTC)

  • Right now I'll say a week, but maybe in a few days we can just call it. The reason for waiting a week is to give the admin plenty of time to see your message. Since it's on hold, we try to go through on hold requests every few days to see if there's been any update, so you don't have to do anything (unless it looks like we've forgotten, in which case you can leave one of us a message). - Brandon Rhea(talk) 06:07, November 18, 2010 (UTC)
    • Alright, fair enough, pending that though does everything else look good or are there any other things I need to do before my request can be granted?--God (Pray) 06:13, November 18, 2010 (UTC)
      • Not that I can see. Everything looks great. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 06:33, November 18, 2010 (UTC)

Hey Brandon, I got your support email, thanks I fixed the problem on my own. Are you still planning on reviewing the requests tonight? It would be nice to start on some of the things I wanted to do by the weekend--God (Pray) 03:06, November 25, 2010 (UTC)

Hey, I just wanted to thank you for granting my request. Sorry for nagging a bit--God (Pray) 04:46, November 27, 2010 (UTC)

Theme Designer questions

Hi Brandon! I was attempting to upload my own background, but it only took up a tiny corner of the screen behind the page. I know it can't be more than 100KB, but what are the pixel dimensions I need to know, exactly? Thanks!---CadmiumX99 04:39, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hmm, good question. The simple answer is that it's really anything you want it to be. How it'll show up depends on the screen resolution of the person viewing it. I can look into a more specific answer for you, though. Additionally, you could ask for advice in our Community Forum. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 02:57, November 18, 2010 (UTC)

My Adoption Request

If you wouldn't mind taking a look at my answer (for the D'ni Wikia), I would be grateful. That issue can be resolved fairly quickly, and I am eager to adopt the Wiki. Thank you for your time. :) ~~ Hi878 (Come shout at me!) 03:56, November 19, 2010 (UTC)

Something has come up; if you could take a look, I would be immensely grateful. Again, thank you for your time. ~~ Hi878 (Come shout at me!) 21:46, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

And i replied to you but you are not replying back. Did i do something wrong? If i did I'm really sorry, and if you can please reply by today because tomorrow I'm going out of town for a day.

Hello, actually there are five admins who said that, two of them are my friends and we talk all the time [Ms. Artie Abrams and Mr.Santana Lopez] and one of them [Artieandtinaforeva] was an admin but his admin-ship was withdrawn yesterday.

Hello, you asked me to get support from admins too but two of them are on a vacation and i don't know what to do? Can you please help me? There were five admins active i got support from three but two of them are on a vacation, though they wouldn't mind 'cause they are like my brother and sister and we talk all the time.

Time frame request on adoption

Hi Brandon, I was wondering if you can give me a time table as to when you may be able to get to my request to adopt Gun Wiki.

Please don't think I'm rushing you. You may be on vacation. I understand we all have lives outside of Wikia. I was just wondering so I can either continue working my plans to update, revamp and fact check the site or go back to edits and new articles.

Thanks much for your hard work, Greg Glover 19:05, November 23, 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi Greg. It's generally 2-4 days for adoption requests. Hopefully one of us can get to it tonight or tomorrow. Be sure to continue editing in the interim! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:03, November 23, 2010 (UTC)


Because I am in a somewhat impatient mood today. Please see this section above. ~~ Hi878 (Come shout at me!) 02:50, November 25, 2010 (UTC)

Gunslinger Girl Wiki request

Hey Brandon, just checked the Community Central page and noticed you were updating adoption requests as of ten minutes ago. Just a friendly reminder that I'm still waiting for adminship on the dormant Gunslinger Girl Wiki, which I'm editing actively. Thanks -- Moonraker-6 07:24, November 25, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I'm not sure if I'll get to the on hold requests tonight, but I'll try to get to yours. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 04:50, November 27, 2010 (UTC)
Whoops, never mind, I gave them to you on Thursday. :) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 05:59, November 27, 2010 (UTC)

D'ni Wiki

First of all, I am very sorry for bothering you again. However, I have a question. Would it be a good idea to remove the bureaucrat right from AtionSong, or should he just keep it? If it should be removed, would you mind doing so? ~~ Hi878 (Come shout at me!) 06:58, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

I would keep it. I'm not big on removing rights based on inactivity, because inactivity in and of itself isn't anything wrong. Besides, Ation may come back, and then there's more than one admin and bureaucrat in place for the wiki. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 07:31, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
Alright. That makes sense. ~~ Hi878 (Come shout at me!) 07:46, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

Superpower Wiki

Hey Brandon! Me and a fellow wikian posted this on JeskaD's talk page. I thought I should copy and paste it to your talk page:

Hey Jeska,

My name is Cayde and I'm an avid user of wikia, and really enjoy editing. I am having a problem though, theSuperpower wiki is having a little trouble. There are several experienced users and editors that would like to help and really make it a good wiki, but our only Admin/Bureaucrat is often vacant for long periods of time.

We would like to increase the content on our homepage, delete spam and unnecessary pages, as well as remove some page locks so unregistered users can edit too. But need some Admins for that.

My request is that you or another wikia staff member dropped onto our wiki and gave four people admin powers and two people bureaucrat abilities. There are lots of good options but, not to be too overconfident, I have a few suggestions.

*Caydeb me *BobNewbie another user on very often

  • TheXFactor An experienced and decisive user
  • Raven Knowledgeable and edits many pages

thank you, hope to hear from you soon. --Kaidb 15:55, November 29, 2010 (UTC)

Hey Jeska! I'm BobNewbie, and would also like to help address the problems above. There are plenty of spam and inappropriate pages not being deleted, absolutely no rollbacks, only 1 bureaucrat who has not edited for a while, and there are a shortage of community happenings.

I would like to, like Caydeb said, receive either admin or bureaucrat abilities.

I am a experienced editor and I know how to use the tools. I am very good with building a community and handling disputes. If I am granted the rights, I will use tehm to build a larger community, and to better the wiki.

Thanks! BobNewbie talkblog 16:17, November 29, 2010 (UTC)

Hey again Jeska! I'm trying to keep it democratic, so I made a blog to tell users about it. Thanks!

I don't believe its exactly like a wiki adoption, so I put it here. Please consider it. Thanks and have a nice day! BobNewbie talkblog 17:18, November 29, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. It's still an adoption for the adoption requests page. If a group of people would like to adopt it, and they've all said they would like to become administrators, you or someone else from the group (it only needs to be one person) can put up the request on behalf of all the users who would like admin rights. Just be sure to specify who in the group is getting what rights (who is getting bureaucrat and admin, and who is just getting admin). Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 17:21, November 29, 2010 (UTC)

How to change my wiki's name?


I wrongly choosed an incorrect name for my wiki. ( the name of the wiki is "Pawn Wiki"and I want to change it to "SA-MP Wiki", how can I do that?

Unfairly Blocked

Hi Brandon. I'm actually Dustpelts but this is my back up account in case anything ever went wrong. I feel that I have been unfairly blocked by Charitwo. Darkcloud! reported me (you probably know why) and I attempted to explain that it wasn't entirley my fault but he never listened to me and proceded to block me. Please help me sort this misunderstanding. Quickheart

  • If I remember right, Charitwo asked that this dispute not be had on Community Central. When it continued, that's when the block was handed out. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do to help, because, like any other wiki, I won't overrule a local admin's block in this sort of situation. Sorry. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:22, November 30, 2010 (UTC)

Wiki adoption

Hey. This is slyhades99 and I wanted to know if you could check the "on holds" on the wiki adoption page. I wanted to adopt the Chronicles of Narnia Fanon Wiki and you asked me if spenpiano was okay with me adopting the wiki. I asked and he was. Since the first time i posted my request, ive had about 100 more edits and its been almost a week since ive had a response. SlyHades99 00:37, December 3, 2010 (UTC).

  • Thanks! I'll take a look at this tonight. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:17, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

SP Wiki

Hey Brandon! Thanks for reviewing my request! Anyway, we already had a vote , and it seems as though the community are:

  1. Agreeing that there should be someone adopting the wiki
  2. That I, BobNewbie, should be the person requesting adoption.

The thing is, D.Collins is usually inactive for long periods of time. There are many pages that need unprotection, many inappropriate pages needing to be deleted, many extremely inappropriate comments needing removal, rollbackers and admins needing to be assigned, growth of the community should be improved, and help needs to be given to new wikia users. Even when D.Collins is on, little of these tasks are done.

Due to these reasons, I ask of you to please give me the bureaucrat rights. If I am given them, all the above tasks will be done. If you would like, you can see how much I do in 1 weeks time.

I understand you are very busy, so i'm not in a hurry. Please reconsider!

Thanks you very much!

Regards, BobNewbie talkblog 08:06, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

  • Thanks. I'll look into this tonight. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:15, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
    • I've given you the admin rights. Good luck with them! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 06:18, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

No borders and no response

Hello there. I have written the contact page at least three times, and I have not gotten one response for either. I than made a forum page, in which I finally got an answer to my problem, but Fandyllic has suggested that I write you to see if my messages were lost or something, and I think to bring up my problem again. I really would like a response. --NuclearVacuum (Talk) 19:55, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. We have three e-mails on record from you, and all of them mention something about borders. You were sent a response by Avatar on October 21st, one by Merrystar on October 27th, and one by Uberfuzzy on November 24th. Do you have in your contacts list? That could help if your e-mail is somehow filtering responses out.
If you could add that to your address book, please send a test message to Special:Contact and address it to me in the subject line. I'll take it (or someone will give it to me) when it gets there, and then I'll send you a test response to see if you receive it. If it's still not working then we can go from there to figure it out. I'll let you know when I've sent you a response so you know when to check. Can you let me know when you send the test message, just in case it doesn't go through to us? Thanks. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:12, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. I just send a message to the contact page (the subject is your name). Sorry for the delay, and glad you can help out. --NuclearVacuum (Talk) 16:00, December 9, 2010 (UTC)
Got it! The reply area isn't showing up for me, though, so I can't currently reply yet. =/ I'll let you know once I have. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:03, December 9, 2010 (UTC)
Never mind, just got it working. Reply sent. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:03, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

Adoption delays?

I was just wondering what the overall turnaround time for adoption requests are. It's only beacuse I've noticed no activity on any of the adoption requests posted at the moment, except for new ones being added (and the official text up top says 2 to 3 days). If there was an annoucement I missed, I apologise.

SomeoneD 16:06, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

  • Very sorry about the delays, this time of year has gotten really busy for everyone. I've blocked out 2 hours tomorrow (Friday) morning to work on a lot of the backlog. Depending on when your request was posted, I'll hopefully get to yours then. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 04:10, December 10, 2010 (UTC)

Loss of a Wiki owner


I am PKA from the Kongregate Wiki , awhile back (when ever the layout changed) our wiki owner left the wiki and left us owner-less, I am wondering if I am able to take over the role of the former owner (who deleted himself out of their power entirely) through a simple adoption request or some other process is necessary. At the moment our wiki doesn't meet the adoption requirements due to having a Bureaucrat active just over a month ago, and xensyr and myself being active sysops, but as our room lacks an owner I was wondering if it would be possible to take up that role anyway. PKA 07:59, December 11, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. Sorry I missed your message. Founder rights can't be transferred; the founder is the one who created the wiki, and there aren't any additional rights that come with that. Feel free to put in a request for bureaucrat rights on Community Central:Adoption requests and we'll see if there's any wiggle room with the requirements. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 02:16, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

Adoption Helper

This whole thing with giving other users rights to adopt wikis is very interesting to me and I was wondering if somehow I could help you give people rights and make sure that they are elliegable to adopt. Red SoxGo Red Sox!!!

  • Hi. Helpers are contracted volunteers and employees who are hired via the Hiring page on the main Wikia website. As a member of the Community Team, I was asked—along with Merrystar—to help with adoption requests. The best way to help us out is, if you'd like, to comment on adoption requests. Don't approve or disapprove them, of course, but if you see one that could use more information based on the requirements then you could say so. Just remember to note that you're not a staff member or helper, so your responses are not official. :) - Brandon Rhea(talk) 04:37, December 18, 2010 (UTC)
  • Allright Ill see if they are elligble and tell you on that that section of the page. Red SoxGo Red Sox!!!
  • Ok I understand, could I call myself a Wikia assisstant then? And if I continue to comment on Adoption requests(say for a few months or whatevery you think is necsssary) could I become a full helper like you and Merrystar? DustpeltA Wikia Contributer
  • Ok at the Hiring page which link should I go to? DustpeltA Wikia Contributer
  • Ok thanks for that. Ill keep checking until one opens up. DustpeltA Wikia Contributor
  • Ok I gotcha you now, but eventually my goal is to become a wikia helper like you and Merrystar. DustpeltA Wikia Contributor

Hi it's me Finchelfanno1. I wanted your help, do you know how to edit a welcome message? The one a new user gets if they edit a page or leave a comment. Thank You. Bye,  Finchelfanno1 (talk / contribs)|Music  08:23, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

  • Some wikis do it manually with something like Template:Hello or Template:Welcome. If you want all users to be welcomed via User:Wikia, you can follow the instructions on the welcome bot's user page. For example, MediaWiki:Welcome-message-user is where you can edit the welcome message for logged-in users and MediaWiki:Welcome-message-anon is where you can edit the welcome message for anonymous users. Be sure to follow the rest of the instructions on the user page to make sure it's working the way you'd like it to. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 02:14, January 1, 2011 (UTC)


Hey Brandon! Remember me? You gave me admin rights a while ago for the Superpower Wiki. Anyway, I realized that I can't be the only admin on the wiki forever, so I want to ask if I can A: request bureaucrat rights on the adoption page, or B: Ask a staff member, like you, to promote users we (me and the community) pick? BobNewbie talkblog 17:39, December 25, 2010 (UTC)

  • Sure, you can absolutely request bureaucrat rights on the adoption page. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 02:33, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

Backyard Monster Wiki 's Administrator blocked me for 1 year because of advertising of at their talk page. But I'm requesting to adopt me as an Administrator for but according to the details if I'm eligible to adopt the wiki is it is required not to be blocked by another Wikia project. I tried contacting the Administrator of bym.wikia but I can't because I'm blocked. Please contact him or unblock me please. T_T

The block was made by Pro Man.

   * Reason given: no reason given
   * Start of block: 12:47, December 29, 2010
   * Expiry of block: 12:47, December 29, 2011
   * Intended blockee: AdminTheSecond
   * Block ID: #16
   * Current IP address:

Unfortunately, there's not much I can do in regards to the block. 1 year is a bit excessive, but local admins get to decide the lengths of blocks on the wikis they tend to. I don't think creating your user page like that showed the best judgment that a potential admin should have, though. For now I'm going to close your request; if you continue editing over the next few weeks and you're not blocked on any other wikis, I can give you the rights. Thanks and good luck! - Brandon Rhea(talk) 02:10, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

The Superpower Wiki. We have another problem. D.Collins keeps making minor edits on the wiki and isn't responding to any of our messages. May I still apply for adoption? At least only till I got some admins and rollbacks to help me? Thanks. --BobNewbie talkblog 09:13, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

City of Wonder Wiki Adoption Request

Hey Brandon, Thanks for taking a look at my request. There have been a couple of reasons for sparodic edits, first being, that the facebook game tends to have periodic updates, so we don't always have anything to change on the wiki, the second is that I have just undergone 2 seperate surgeries requiring hospitalization so I've not been available as well. I'm updating as needed on it, and you are welcome and invited to take another look at this to see my involvement with the first of the two wiki's (I had been making most of the updates on the second wiki that was created before I realized I could request adoption of the first one. The second wiki is called City of Wonder Online Wiki. Thanks again. Councellor (talk) 23:19, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

  • Thanks for letting me know. The reason we ask for edits is to make sure that users aren't just collecting wikis and then doing nothing with them. I'll be sure to check out the City of Wonder Online wiki for more of your contributions. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 00:09, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

I changed my account

I wanted to change my username but I couldn't, so I made a new account, I made an adoption request to adopt King Kong wiki with this account(MarwanNabihwikia) but I want to adopt it with my new one, so I made a new adoption request, please ignore the (on hold) request, my new account now is MarwanNabihWikia. I know its not much of a difference between the usernames but I am still new, I didn't edit much and I don't want to continue with my old username. Thanks.

Hello, about the Bakugan Roleplay Adoption, we told the user TwinStar from there who was an unactive admin, who hasn't been there for the required time that we are adopting it. He started to help out since we asked if he could, But then since the adoption isn't complete, and he just started helping us now that we said we are adopting it, does that mean that an admin has been active?

Creator of a Wiki and Adopting a Wiki

Whats the diffrence of the creator creating a wiki and someone adopting a wiki? Is the creator's created wiki his/hers or is it shared? Also an admin that adopted is it his/her and shared? --Cococrash11 00:16, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

  • There's really no difference, because wikis are never meant to belong to any one individual. Admins and bureaucrats, including founders, shouldn't think of themselves as owners; no one person owns a wiki. Wikis are meant to “belong” and be “owned” by the entire community. Admins and bureaucrats are meant to be normal users who have a few extra editing tools rather than authority figures; they’re there to help sheppard wikis through their growth and to enforce policies with their extra tools if and when need be. Does that help answer your question? - Brandon Rhea(talk) 00:39, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah thanks for the answer. --Cococrash11 01:18, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

Boston Red Sox Wiki and Red Sox Wiki

My wiki (the Boston Red Sox wiki; which I am currently active on and running and improving. However I also noticed that there is another wiki called the Red Sox wiki; I have checked and all the admins there are inactive. To hopefully help my wiki become more popular I was wondering if you could close the Red Sox wiki (not my wiki) and redirect it to my wiki. DustpeltA Wikia Contributor

I asked him!

He said ok!
