Request to reopen a wiki
Shortcuts:
RfA,
RfR,
RfRW

This page is for requesting to reopen ('adopt') a wiki (if you are not a bureaucrat) that has been closed due to inactivity.

Pictogram voting info.svg Note: Only wikis that have been automatically closed due to inactivity can be reopened here! If the wiki was manually closed, any reopening must be discussed with the closing management or raised on the Stewards' noticeboard.

If you would additionally like advanced rights (administrator and/or bureaucrat), please start a local election.

If you are already a bureaucrat on the wiki simply, go to Special:ManageWiki/core (on your wiki) and uncheck the "closed" box to reopen your wiki. Wikis that are set to private cannot be adopted due to privacy reasons! You must be a registered user to request a reopening (or to post on this page).
Please remember to:

  • Talk in a calm and respectful manner
  • Give us details

For other global issues please see: Stewards' noticeboard

To add your request, click the "Add Request" button below and enter the details asked.

unwatchablesports.miraheze.org

Status:  Done

FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 06:14, 6 April 2022 (UTC) Per the linked conversation, it appears Doug was looking for a confirmation, which you gave; unfortunately it seems he became bogged in other things and was unable to followup. Reiterating his advisory to try and focus on wikis you will do justice for, this is Yes check.svg done. --Raidarr (talk) 14:05, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

foodnotbombs.miraheze.org

Status:  Locally handled
  • Username: John L. Clark (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I am a member of a local Food Not Bombs chapter and I am interesting in trying to revitalize this wiki for broader use.

John L. Clark (talk) 23:51, 8 April 2022 (UTC)

Marking as Yes check.svg locally handled per this log entry. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:23, 12 April 2022 (UTC)

fallout.miraheze.org

Status:  On hold
  • Username: RigelatinCommando (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I want to adopt this wiki and dedicate it to fallout lore from all sources and some meta lore.

RigelatinCommando (talk) 13:15, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

@RigelatinCommando: Frankly, this wiki is broken. I'm going to look into it/bring it up to SRE and colleagues, and get back to you on this. --Raidarr (talk) 14:17, 13 April 2022 (UTC)
Thank you for your efforts! RigelatinCommando (talk) 16:46, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

roads.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: R66 (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason:

R66 (talk) 18:59, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

@R66: What is the reason for wanting this wiki reopened? Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:23, 12 April 2022 (UTC)
I wanted to make a roads wiki, however they suggested to adopt the wiki, so therefore I'm trying to adopt the wiki to make my roads wiki. — Preceding unsigned comment added by R66 (talkcontribs) 10:25, 12 April 2022‎
@R66: per your elaboration above, the wiki is now Yes check.svg open. Feel free to consider starting a local election if you would like advanced rights on the wiki, as the current management is (clearly) not active. If you have any further inquiries, feel free to ask on my talk page. --Raidarr (talk) 14:38, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

evogamearchive.miraheze.org

Bweaver1983 (talk) 02:59, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

@Bweaver1983: Please read the message I left on your talk page. I have corrected this very malformed request but you still must indicate why you want this reopened. Thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:03, 15 April 2022 (UTC)
Per their talk page, I have added a reason. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:15, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

Status:  Done

SpaghettiClown (talk) 04:03, 16 April 2022 (UTC)

@SpaghettiClown: Yes check.svg Open, apologies for delay. (Just noticed I bungled the log entry; the one I meant was here). --Raidarr (talk) 17:01, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

theidochronicles.miraheze.org

Status:  Locally handled

GeoffreyjenEdwards (talk) 23:42, 17 April 2022 (UTC)

Marking as Yes check.svg locally handled as it seems that that the wiki was reopened per ManageWiki here on Meta. Agent Isai Talk to me! 22:18, 19 April 2022 (UTC)

bimagv.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: Bimagv (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): Yes
  • Reason: I'm still writting in this wiki. So, please reopened my WiKi

Bimagv (talk) 05:26, 19 April 2022 (UTC)

@Bimagv: Hi there, to reopen your wiki, click here and uncheck the "Closed" box. Agent Isai Talk to me! 22:18, 19 April 2022 (UTC)
@Bimagv: while I've gone ahead and Yes check.svg opened this, I reiterate Agent Isai's advice that you not only can reopen the wiki via Special:ManageWiki, it is the far more efficient, proper and preferred way to do so. This page is for (non-bureaucrat) people who are unable to open wikis but are interested in contributing to them. As the founder and primary contributor, it is your responsibility to keep it open by making contributions either consistently/with the help of any volunteers, or intermittently if you lack the time/community to be persistent (once every month would do the job). If you develop enough material on the wiki this way and there is quite a bit to come back to, you may request an exemption that will keep the wiki open on its own for much longer. I've left a message locally pointing to this notice, since it has come up on this page before. --Raidarr (talk) 17:35, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

geometrydash.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: Lé Gunfish (CentralAuth)

  • Reason: I want to make a wiki on geometry dash on miraheze, for informational and entertainment purposes.

Lé Gunfish (talk) 21:00, 19 April 2022 (UTC)

@Lé Gunfish: Yes check.svg Open. I notice the wiki was requested, accepted, and then mostly abandoned. If you would like to take the requestor's place as wiki management, feel free to set up a local election. --Raidarr (talk) 17:14, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

geometrydash.miraheze.org

Status:  Redundant
  • Username: Lé Gunfish (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I want to make a wiki on geometry dash on miraheze, for informational and entertainment purposes.

Lé Gunfish (talk) 17:51, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

Your wiki has already reopened per above, so this request is X mark.svg invalid HeartsDo (Talk / Global / Wiki Creator) 06:38, 24 April 2022 (UTC)

xpforever.miraheze.org

Status:  In progress
  • Username: WindowsXP4Ever (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
