Requests for adoption/header



perfectrobloxgames.miraheze.org

Request from Techsupport Agent 05

Status:  Done
  • Wiki: perfectrobloxgames.miraheze.org
  • Username: Techsupport Agent 05
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I am interested in trying to add more into this wiki and refurbishing it. It's that I wanted to put some good games from this platform and collect them here for others to see. That wiki doesn't appear finished so I want to try it.

Techsupport Agent 05 (talk) 02:19, 13 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Request from GD2031

Status:  Not done

GD2031 (talk) 13:19, 13 June 2020 (UTC) Hello I AM here to do a request of adoption i am attempting to bring this wiki back. i hope you guys give me a chance.people must know what are the best roblox games to play.Please give me a chance to bring this wiki back to life[reply]

  • Comment @Techsupport Agent 05 and GD2031:, it looks like there are now two requests to adopt this wiki. Per Dormancy Policy, a steward will now have to decide, assuming adoption is permitted, which candidate should adopt it or, alternatively, whether both of you can adopt it and be appointed as bureaucrats. I will {{ping}} @Void: to this thread, and he should be able to get to it in the next several business days to a week. Dmehus (talk) 13:42, 13 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    A steward doesn't need to be pinged, they'll get to it in due course. The wiki will shortly be reopened so both can contribute and then a steward will determine whether after a week either of you have used it enough to gain rights and then will make it clear how to proceed. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 14:30, 13 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    Okay, fair enough. I had just seen a number of requests languish or be archived without action over at SN, but in fairness, Requests for adoption does seem more well attended. (As an aside, I do think we need more stewards to help deal these more administrative type actions as the dealing with cross-wiki spam and long-term abuse is all-consuming for stewards.) Dmehus (talk) 19:08, 13 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Techsupport Agent 05 and GD2031: The wiki has been reopened. Whoever is active within the next week will decide who should be promoted. -- Void Whispers 20:33, 27 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Techsupport Agent 05 and GD2031: Any comments regarding who should be promoted? -- Void Whispers 19:30, 4 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
No comments from @GD2031:. Yes check.svg Done for @Techsupport Agent 05: instead. -- Void Whispers 23:32, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

osaindex.miraheze.org

Status:  On hold
  • Wiki: osaindex.miraheze.org
  • Username: 재미재미
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO
  • Reason: This wiki is an archive of Osawiki(오사위키), which was closed in the end of 2016. However, the bureaucrat of the wiki, User:PlavorSeol had permanently banned due to Requests for Comment/Community Ban for PlavorSeol. More than 60 days passed, so adoption of this site is now available. As one of the administrators of Osawiki, I want to take over the wiki's operating rights. This page(written in Korean) shows that I was the former manager of Osawiki.

재미재미 (talk) 03:14, 20 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@재미재미: The wiki has been reopened, I'll take a look at transferring over perms later. -- Void Whispers 20:37, 27 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
X mark.svg Not done No activity on the wiki in the period since. Please let me know if there is any further interest in this request. -- Void Whispers 19:32, 4 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Void: Could you please review this request? I couldn't contribute anything on this wiki because it does not allow editing for normal users. (https://osaindex.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:ListGroupRights) If I receive the bureaucrat, I'll try my best on it. --재미재미 (talk) 01:36, 6 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@재미재미: I've put this back on hold, and assigned the edit right to the user group. I'll return to this shortly. -- Void Whispers 23:37, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Relisting this request that is still on hold, to prevent the bot from archiving it until it has been finalized by Void or another steward. Dmehus (talk) 15:08, 21 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

guaxapedia.miraheze.org

Status:  On hold

Frantribes (talk) 17:21, 30 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Frantribes: Reopened. If you actively edit during the next week, a Steward will grant you administrator and bureaucrat permissions. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:38, 1 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Reception123: Noticed this request is still on hold. Has this been finalized? If not, that's fine—the timestamp added by my signature today should give a steward another several weeks to follow up with this request. Dmehus (talk) 15:12, 21 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

adpirum.miraheze.org

Status:  On hold

Phillipineswiki (talk) 05:59, 1 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Phillipineswiki: The wiki has been reopened. If you actively contribute within the next week, rights will be transferred. -- Void Whispers 19:40, 4 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Void: Noticed this request is still on hold. Has this been finalized? If not, that's fine—the timestamp added by my signature today should give you or another steward another several weeks to follow up with this request. Dmehus (talk) 15:13, 21 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

freevandalism.miraheze.org

Status:  In progress
  • Wiki: freevandalism.miraheze.org
  • Username: Fblfun
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: This wiki has not been edited in months and needs a new bureaucrat since I want to save it.

Fblfun (talk) 09:32, 1 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Fblfun: We moved to independent hosting, so there is no need to adopt this wiki. --Rainstorm1650 (talk) 06:45, 12 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]


abysymalrobloxgames.miraheze.org

Status:  Invalid

ThePCGamer (talk) 09:04, 5 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

X mark.svg Not done Wiki's manually cannot be adopted. -- Void Whispers 21:47, 8 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@ThePCGamer: please discuss this with @Elsherlock: due to the manual closure. -- Void Whispers 02:01, 10 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@ThePCGamer: To add to what @Void: said, you may be interested in this related discussion in which @Nihirichan:, an administrator but not a bureaucrat on that wiki, also enquired about adoption. It's somewhat complicated, but essentially since that wiki was manually closed, common practice among stewards and system administrators is to let local policies and actions dictate any involvement until, presumably, it would normally otherwise qualify at Requests for adoption. Among the options suggested, you could contact the local bureaucrat who closed that wiki, you could contact another (albeit inactive) bureaucrat, to locally adopt it, or you could hold some sort of community vote on the wiki to add new bureaucrats, taking care to follow local policies (if any) that exist on that wiki. If no bureaucrat is available to close and action that community vote, then a steward can be called upon at SN here on Meta to assess the vote and take any action. So, you may want to reach out to Nihirichan about possibly organizing something locally. Hope that helps you out. Dmehus (talk) 05:16, 10 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

reversecrappygames.miraheze.org

Status:  In progress

ThePCGamer (talk) 09:52, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@ThePCGamer: Please give a more detailed reason on why you want to adopt the wiki - PowerDagger15 (talk) 15:49, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@ThePCGamer: Ok, a steward or admin soon will reopen the wiki. When the wiki's reopened, you have to make lots of edits in one week so you can have admin and bureaucrat status. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PowerDagger15 (talkcontribs) 09:08 (UTC -08:00), 8 July 2020

ANIMESOCKS.miraheze.org

Status:  In progress
  • Wiki: ANIMESOCKS.miraheze.org
  • Username: MrMosely
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: As a lover of socks myself, it is sad to see that this wiki could be closing very soon. I am new to this wiki, but it would be an honour to adopt it.

MrMosely (talk) 23:29, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

pizzahat.miraheze.org

Status:  In progress
  • Wiki: pizzahat.miraheze.org
  • Username: Ortix
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: This wiki hasn’t been edited in a fair bit but realised I got could get something out if it since I have something with a similar name. I understand that it’s a private wiki and it may not be possible to adopt it as a public one.

Ortix (talk) 05:55, 8 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: Indeed, this is a private wiki, but I'll {{ping}} @Void: to this thread to see if there's another alternative that could be done. I'm not sure how many days left until this wiki will actually be deleted, but perhaps we could accelerate deletion, preserving the existing database for the original wiki owner should they like it, in order to make the address available for a new wiki? Just wondering aloud here. Dmehus (talk) 14:25, 9 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

mariowiki.miraheze.org

Status:  In progress

Mariofan12 (talk) 21:18, 8 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: @Void:, Amanda and I both declined, procedurally really because the requested URL already existed, this wiki request from Mariofan12. The user had a clear purpose and scope. I realize you normally like to see contributions by the requesting user for a week, but since this existing closed wiki is in a different language, that will prove difficult. So, I'm happy to Symbol support vote.svg Support this user adopting it and repurposing it as an English (or other) language wiki. The user seems to have both the motivation and a clear purpose for making this wiki useful again. Dmehus (talk) 14:21, 9 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

gg.miraheze.org

Status:  In progress
  • Wiki: gg.miraheze.org
  • Username: Zergrieft
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: Procedurally moved from this wiki creation request as the requesting user, Zergrieft, wanted to start a wiki related to his Minecraft network, history of builds, and informational articles related to such, construed broadly. Since he is a user on that wiki and since that wiki is "closed," it seemed like a clear case for adoption. Note that I am not the one requesting to adopt; it should be Zergrieft. Pinging @Void: to consider this request.

rust.miraheze.org

Status:  In progress
  • Wiki: rust.miraheze.org
  • Username: Chris13524
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I'm with the Rust Programming Language wiki. When we were originally setting things up a few months ago, somebody created rust.miraheze.org. However they dropped out of communication shortly after and we ended up creating runrust.miraheze.org to replace it. We've been working on there since then. I was wondering if it would be possible to just delete rust and transfer/rename runrust to where rust was previously? No pages other than the main page were created/edited.

Chris13524 (talk) 19:01, 9 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: I've checked this wiki and there's only one local bureaucrat, who has made no contributions whatsoever. Chris13524 does seem to the most active on the wiki, so I'm happy to
Symbol support vote.svg Support him adopting this wiki. Ultimately, though, @Chris13524:, a steward (which will probably be Void in all likelihood) will make the final assessment, but I'm happy to chime in if that's helpful in the determination. Dmehus (talk) 19:56, 9 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

SUBDOMAIN_HERE.miraheze.org

Status:  Cannot be undertaken

Apungwe10540 (talk) 19:53, 9 July 2020 (UTC) I want to adopt this wiki-Apungwe10540[reply]

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: @Apungwe10540: Your request is malformed as you've not specified a subdomain of a valid wiki hosted by Miraheze. Can you please clarify? Dmehus (talk) 19:59, 9 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Closing this as cannot be undertaken due to the the request being malformed, and there's been no response from the requestor since the date of the original request and the date of my reply. Dmehus (talk) 18:46, 22 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

scanaway.miraheze.org

Status:  In progress
  • Wiki: scanaway.miraheze.org
  • Username: FiveDigits2
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I am original author of the wiki, but was not able to login with my initial credentials for some time . I will continue to develop this wiki

FiveDigits2 (talk) 18:04, 10 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@FiveDigits2: I see that @FiveDigits: is the bureaucrat on that wiki. Did you have an e-mail address that you still have access to linked to @FiveDigits: so that you can recover access to that account? If not, or if you don't otherwise have access to that account's e-mail address, are you able to reach out to a steward or a system administrator privately (e-mail or verified Discord account is probably best) to arrange to verify that you own the @FiveDigits: account? I'm going to {{ping}} @RhinosF1: to this thread, to follow up with you, principally, because he's so responsive to pings. Dmehus (talk) 18:41, 10 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
