Request for adoption
Shortcut:

This page is for requesting to adopt a wiki (if you are not a bureaucrat).

If you are already a bureaucrat on the wiki simply go to Special:ManageWiki (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 adopt a wiki (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.

DreamWeaver7 Looking though your local contributions to this wiki since it was reopened, you have already made the single most editing contributions to the wiki in both number of edits and page byte size, I'm thus satisfied of your commitment level to continue contributing to the wiki and to serving as its custodian/caretaker, so this LGTM and is thus Yes check.svg done, with bureaucrat and sysop rights added to your account. As a helpful reminder, local wikis are run according locally developed guidelines, rules, and other practices developed by the consensus formed from local wikis' communities.

Thank you so much! My community will be thrilled to hear the news and after my classes end next week I will be able to add many more edits. I appreciate it! DreamWeaver7 (talk) 02:48, 16 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Pdr0011 Looking though your local contributions to this wiki since it was reopened, though quite minor, you have already made the second most editing contributions to the wiki in terms of number of edits. Additionally, this is a non-English language wiki. I'm thus satisfied of your commitment level to continue contributing to the wiki and to serving as its custodian/caretaker, so this LGTM and is thus Yes check.svg done, with bureaucrat and sysop rights added to your account. As a helpful reminder, local wikis are run according locally developed guidelines, rules, and other practices developed by the consensus formed from local wikis' communities. Dmehus (talk) 16:27, 26 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hello... I accidentally removed the bureaucrat rating while checking the settings. Could you make a bureaucrat group again? Pdr0011 (talk) 14:53, 27 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Pdr0011 I see that you have deleted your bureaucrat user group, but I also noted you removed the sysop flag from the existing bureaucrat & sysop, Csam10398, and blocked that user for no apparent reason. As I did provide you a helpful reminder above that local wikis are not owned by any one person, and are run according to the consensus will of the local wiki community, I'm not seeing any sort of consensus of the community to proceed with those changes. Moreover, there can always be more than one bureaucrat on a wiki, and, indeed, this is a recommended best practice. Another recommended best practice which is strongly encouraged is to leave the ManageWiki permissions such that only Stewards can remove the bureaucrat bit from users (requested at stewards' noticeboard). I'll recreate your bureaucrat group following the default permissions for the group, but will you commit to keeping in place that recommended best practice and to unblocking that user and restoring their sysop bit should they return? Dmehus (talk) 17:22, 27 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Well noted. Then I will commit those items. Well... could you recreate the bureaucrat group? Pdr0011 (talk) 23:49, 27 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Additionally, Csam10398 have not edited this wiki for a long time, so I think he left the wiki for now. But I'm planning to wait for him coming back to wiki to give sysop bit and bureaucrat. Pdr0011 (talk) 23:49, 27 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
That's a bit fair, but my preference would be to restore at least the bureaucrat user group, then you could perhaps make a dummy log action to note that the user's sysop group would be restored once the user returns to the wiki. Dmehus (talk) 00:14, 28 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
But I already removed the actual group 'bureaucrat', also I cannot access the ManageWiki screen which is available for bureaucrat. Pdr0011 (talk) 04:05, 28 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'll recreate the group, then if bureaucrat needs to be re-added, you can do that, and also unblock them. Dmehus (talk) 04:09, 28 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
OK I wanna do bureaucrat again... Pdr0011 (talk) 04:13, 28 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Pdr0011 Yes check.svg Done (#1 and #2), with bureaucrat re-added to you and Csam10398. You can now unblock Csam10398 locally. As a recommended best practice, I recommend not giving local bureaucrats the ability to remove the bureaucrat bit from other bureaucrats and instead request Stewards remove the bit. It's a really good security practice. Dmehus (talk) 04:19, 28 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ok, I have unblocked Csam10398. And then I will wait for him coming back to this Wiki. Pdr0011 (talk) 04:33, 28 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
For the sysop rights? Yeah, that sounds good. Thanks. :) Dmehus (talk) 04:34, 28 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Status:    On hold
  • Wiki: minecraftenchantments.miraheze.org
  • Username: QuestionLite2
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I was dumb and locked myself out of my account QuestionLite so I'm here with my second account to be able to make administrative changes to the wiki as well as editing after it died

QuestionLite2 (talk) 06:50, 24 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

QuestionLite2 By locked yourself out, do you mean you just lost your two-factor authentication device and can otherwise recover your access to your account as you have a confirmed linked e-mail address on file, or do you mean you've forgotten your password and have no e-mail address on file? Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 12:49, 24 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I've forgotten my password and have no e-mail address on file.
QuestionLite2 (talk) 19:08, 24 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
QuestionLite2 Okay, well, please let me know whether you wish to proceed with this adoption request, which will require you to contribute to the wiki with editing contributions over a couple weeks or so, or hold a local election, lasting at least five to seven calendar days and following these guidelines. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 23:23, 24 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
QuestionLite2 I've Yes check.svg locally reopened this wiki for you to either hold a local election, following these guidelines, or contribute to the wiki over the next couple of weeks. Depending on your contributions or the approach taken, this request may be closed as either superceded by a successful local election, a successful adoption request, or not done. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 17:38, 27 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, I'm editing it right as we speak. However, I'm unable to upload files as I get an error.
QuestionLite2 (talk) 19:58, 10 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
QuestionLite2 What error do you receive? Please paste it in a "Code box", enclosed in quotation marks as in that example. I can grant you temporary rights until the adoption request concludes, but users seem to have the needed upload rights. Dmehus (talk) 22:49, 10 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Could not open lock file for "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/5/55/Enchanted_Book.gif". Make sure your upload directory is configured correctly and your web server has permission to write to that directory. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Manual:$wgUploadDirectory for more information. Return to Main Page.

I think this might require a Phabricator task. Bukkit 16:15, 11 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
This should be fixed by Reception. Bukkit 16:41, 11 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ah, great, thanks Bukkit and Reception123. So, QuestionLite2, continue editing the wiki, and I'll assess this in about a week. Dmehus (talk) 16:54, 11 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I realize this isn't the greatest time to make a request but could it be possible to import the a module like NavboxBuilder? It would allow me to better organize navboxes as most of my planning and organizing actually revolves around navbox creation.
QuestionLite2 (talk) 08:43, 14 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@QuestionLite2: From what wiki? Wikipedia? Minecraft Wikia? That's certainly possible, you'd just need to import all required templates and modules. For better help, I suggest you use our Discord or IRC where people will be able to help you in real time. Agent Isai Talk to me! 16:08, 14 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Fandom would be preferred I suppose, but Wikipedia's would also be alright. I'm not sure exactly how to import Lua modules and I don't believe Lua is enabled on the wiki even.

Zocktersrat (talk) 02:27, 25 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Zocktersrat As I see that amonguswiki is a wiki of Cocopuff2018, I've instead notified them to this request to locally reopen the wiki and consider granting you any rights you may require (i.e., sysop and, potentially, bureaucrat) as this will be much quicker than proceeding with a full adoption request. If they've not reopened the wiki by tomorrow, I'll reopen it, and we can proceed with the adoption request. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 18:29, 26 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hello I have reopened and granted admin sorry for late reply --Cocopuff2018 (talk) 17:09, 27 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Zocktersrat Per Cocopuff2018's reply, above, the wiki has been Yes check.svg locally reopened and you've been locally Yes check.svg granted sysop permissions on the wiki. As such, I'm closing this request as locally handled. Feel free to request any additional permissions you require locally. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 17:26, 27 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Cosmophilus Though many of your local editing contributions are either somewhat or fairly minor in nature, you do have some page creations of at least a start class and are already one of the wiki's most active contributor.

One question, though, when you say you "let this slide for too long (oops)," do you mean to say you are Jamescoolcraft? If so, would you mind logging in from your Jamescoolcraft account and confirming this? Dmehus (talk) 20:14, 1 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
