:{{ping|Isle}} First, thank you for your adoption request. However, it was somewhat malformed. Please note that the Miraheze subdomain, not the [[custom domains|custom domain]] should be used for adoption requests, and, additionally, there is no need to add an additional section header. Second, regarding your request, thank you for your valid adoption request, assuming this was the intended wiki. A [[stewards|steward]] will review your request within the next week or so, after which they will reopen the wiki, allowing you to contribute constructively for one or more weeks. Within several weeks, they will review your contributions, and grant you <code>bureaucrat</code> rights on the local wiki if successful. If that was ''not'' the correct wiki, please ''do'' advise of the correct wiki. Hope that helps. [[User:Dmehus|Dmehus]] ([[User talk:Dmehus|talk]]) 20:07, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

:::::{{ping|Isle}} I'm not sure if {{ping|Isleee}} is your legitimate alternate account or not, so perhaps you could clarify, ideally with confirmations from both accounts, whether this is the case or not. Apologies for the delay in assessing your [[requests for adoption|adoption request]]. Anyway, I trust you're still interested in this request, but, presumably, were just busy during the Christmas holiday period. While the edits made were fairly minor, you certainly compensate in terms of ''quantity'' of edits. Crucially, you've been an active contributing member of this community going back a full year or more. Accordingly, this LGTM, and so this is {{Done|done}}, with <code>bureaucrat</code> and <code>sysop</code> rights added to your account. As a helpful reminder, local wikis are run according locally developed guidelines, rules, and other practices developed by the [[w:WP:CON|consensus]] formed from local wikis' communities.

* Reason: This wiki has potential, and since Waldo already has a pending adoption request for its sister wiki (Terrific TV Networks Wiki), I decided to make an adoption request for this one.
* Reason: The reason why I want to adopt the wiki is because I think it has a bright future and I will take good care of it and try to promote the wiki as well. I also make to make a page on this wiki. I hope you understand and let me save this wiki thanks

:[[User:Hbcpraise|Hbcpraise]] I've {{Done|[[mh:hbcpraise:Special:Redirect/logid/57|reopened]]}} the wiki for you. Looking at [[mh:hbcpraise:Special:ListUsers/bureaucrat|this special page]], it looks like [[User:Jim-ng|Jim-ng]] is the only <code>bureaucrat</code> on the wiki. I noted you are a <code>member</code> on the wiki, which ''usually'' indicates a private wiki. It looks like it ''was'' a private wiki until [[mh:hbcpraise:Special:Redirect/logid/18|this log action]] made by the local wiki bureaucrat made the wiki public. So, my question would be mainly for [[User:Jim-ng|Jim-ng]] as the wiki bureaucrat, did you guys ''want'' all users to view your wiki's pages? With private wikis, if you want users to be able to view pages, you just need to add the <code>member</code> group to the user(s) you want to have access. So, clarification there would be helpful. In addition, do you still want to ''adopt'' the wiki, by contributing to the wiki over the next several weeks in order to obtain <code>bureaucrat</code> and <code>sysop</code> rights on the wiki, or did you just want it reopened? If the ''latter'', this is now {{Done|done}}. Thanks. [[User:Dmehus|Dmehus]] ([[User talk:Dmehus|talk]]) 22:11, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

I would rather see you write a couple of ''new'' content pages before granting rights. Would you be able to set that as your personal goal for the next week? Thanks.

::{{ping|Tali64³}} As [[User:HeartsDo|HeartsDo]] mentioned above, I'll just add the following helpful instructions. Since it seems like this wiki has no active bureaucrats, I would recommend you hold a local election, taking care to take into account the local wiki's permissions elections policies. Assuming your wiki has no local permissions request policies or other election rules, you would follow global customs and conventions for such requests, which see you create an election page on that wiki, on a prominent page, stating the number and type of position(s) you're running for (i.e., administrator, bureaucrat), the name(s) of the candidate(s) running, how long the election shall run for (best practice for 5-7 calendar days), the minimum support ratio required for a successful election, and whether an election can be declared successful after the minimum timeframe if no one expresses a view (i.e., election by acclamation). Once your process has concluded (recommended to last for at least 5-7 calendar days), return to [[stewards' noticeboard]] and, in a new thread, state the wiki address, local location of the election, and a [[stewards|steward]] will assess your local election in absence of a local bureaucrat.

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.

worsttvnetworks.miraheze.org

Status:    On hold
  • Wiki: worsttvnetworks.miraheze.org
  • Username: Blubabluba9990
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: This wiki has potential, and since Waldo already has a pending adoption request for its sister wiki (Terrific TV Networks Wiki), I decided to make an adoption request for this one.

Blubabluba9990 (talk) 19:34, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

I need it to be re-opened though so that I can make some edits. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 19:42, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
@Blubabluba9990: What is the difference between this wiki and the other wiki? R4356th 2,942 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 20:08, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Terrific TV Networks Wiki is about good television networks, while Worst TV Networks Wiki is about bad television networks. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:13, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Oops, yes, apologies for not noticing that earlier. A Steward will get to this request soon. R4356th 2,942 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 20:17, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Ok. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:23, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Blubabluba9990 This  LGTM as the wiki was not manually closed by a local bureaucrat, so the wiki has been reopened for you to contribute actively over the next week or two, after which a steward will assess your activity and conclude this request accordingly. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 22:05, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Ok. There is still one problem though. Turns out the network wikis will be merged with the larger Terrible TV Shows wiki and Best TV Shows Wiki as a rebrand for the Reception Wikis, so until then I can keep this wiki up. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 12:58, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
Blubabluba9990 I looked through your contributions thus far, and, other than some improvements to the Main Page, I'm not seeing very many edits. Please advise if you are still working on this wiki and interested in adopting it. Pro tip: Writing a few full content pages would be very helpful to a successful adoption. Dmehus (talk) 23:04, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
Yeah the wiki is probably getting merged with Terrible TV Shows Wiki as part of a rebrand they are doing there so that is why. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 12:52, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

hbcpraise.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: hbcpraise.miraheze.org
  • Username: Hbcpraise
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No answer given
  • Reason: I am the bureaucrat, but when I got Special:ManageWiki everything is greyed out and I cannot uncheck "closed"

Hbcpraise (talk) 22:00, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

Hbcpraise I've  reopened the wiki for you. Looking at this special page, it looks like Jim-ng is the only bureaucrat on the wiki. I noted you are a member on the wiki, which usually indicates a private wiki. It looks like it was a private wiki until this log action made by the local wiki bureaucrat made the wiki public. So, my question would be mainly for Jim-ng as the wiki bureaucrat, did you guys want all users to view your wiki's pages? With private wikis, if you want users to be able to view pages, you just need to add the member group to the user(s) you want to have access. So, clarification there would be helpful. In addition, do you still want to adopt the wiki, by contributing to the wiki over the next several weeks in order to obtain bureaucrat and sysop rights on the wiki, or did you just want it reopened? If the latter, this is now  done. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 22:11, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
Hbcpraise Though you've made significant contributions to this wiki prior to your requesting adoption, I haven't seen any contributions since the wiki was reopened. As well, seeing as Jim-ng is again active on the wiki, I'm closing this as X mark.svg not done. Please reach out to Jim-ng to request bureaucrat rights on the wiki or, failing that, to holding a local election, which a Steward can assess in absence of locally active bureaucrats. Thanks.

alternatehistory.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: alternatehistory.miraheze.org
  • Username: Emperore
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: The website's administrators are very inactive and permissions on the website are limiting. You cannot add/edit templates, create your own user page, or even edit the sandbox. I want to adopt the website to improve it and fuel activity since it seems that the strict permissions are a deterrent and there are many missing templates that are necessary for an alternate history wiki.

Emperore (talk) 22:09, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

Emperore It looks like Sapphire Williams, the only (sort of) recently active bureaucrat on this wiki has protected certain namespaces on alternatehistorywiki at autoconfirmed. So, while this wiki isn't eligible for adoption, you have a couple of options, which I'll itemize in turn:
  1. Request confirmed permissions from Sapphire Williams on their local user talk page. If they don't reply after a few days to week, then you can either return to this thread or message me in some other venue (i.e., at User talk:Dmehus or stewards' noticeboard) requesting the confirmed permission be granted in lieu of local administration; or,
  2. Hold a local election for the position(s) you require, whether sysop and/or bureaucrat, following the tips and best practices at User:Dmehus/local election.
Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 16:38, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
Emperore See my reply on Sapphire Williams' user talk page on that wiki. While I could grant you confirmed permissions in lieu of locally active administration, as you only need one more edit on that wiki, the very act of you replying to my reply on that user talk page will make you autoconfirmed. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 17:03, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

  • Reason: interested in preserving and updating the information

Dmehus (talk) 17:22, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
Dawnstar No activity since the wiki was reopened more than two weeks ago, so I'm closing this as X mark.svg not done. In any case, wiki is active and open, so you can always hold a local election on the local wiki, and request a Steward to assess your election in absence of locally active bureaucrats.

Status:    Locally handled
  • Wiki: fantastictoys.miraheze.org
  • Username: DarkMatterMan4500
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No.
  • Reason: The reason why I am making this request is basically 2 things: For 1, it has been entirely inactive with no local sysop to take care of the wiki, and as for reason #2, I figured this wiki would have much potential for a revival, and a new look for it. So, I'd like you to consider my adoption request in advance. Thanks.

@Flaviu: Hi, your reasons says "My own site" but the only bureaucrat/sysop on the wiki is User:Saturnian. Is that an alternate account of yours? If so, please use that one to log in and and then you can go to Special:ManageWiki and uncheck the "closed" box to reopen it. Reception123 (talk) (C) 16:19, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
Hi, you are right. I will solve it. Thank you, Flaviu (talk) 14:00, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Dread X mark.svg Not done as the purpose of requests for adoption is to take over management and administration of existing wikis, not usurp another wiki's subdomain. This wiki has not been edited in approximately five months, and should be deleted in a little over a month from now. So, I'd suggest either (a) waiting until then and requesting a wiki or, if you cannot wait, (b) requesting a wiki with a different subdomain, then monitoring for when this wiki's database is dropped, and then filing a task on Phabricator to rename your wiki.

PokeMyth This LGTM, as the wiki was not manually closed by a local bureaucrat, so I've  locally reopened in lieu of locally active bureaucrats. After several weeks, your contributions to the wiki will be assessed by Stewards, and bureaucrat and sysop user groups may be added to your account at that time.

Can you unlock the main page for edition for now? If possible. PokeMyth (talk) 16:50, 22 February 2021 (UTC)
PokeMyth This is a reasonable request, so I've lowered the edit protection level of Main Page on the given wiki to autoconfirmed as a Steward action on a wiki without any active administrators (and bureaucrats, for that matter). Additionally, so you don't have to make at least ten (10) edits and wait four (4) calendar days, I've  granted you temporary confirmed permissions on the wiki, so you can edit the main page.

Ok, I have no idea what I am doing. I'll just follow your guidelines. I am running for bureaucrat, the candidates are me, and, now, I'm so confused, SpongeBobFan99 (talk) 23:25, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

MarijusV (talk) 10:20, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

MarijusV I think you made a typographical error in this request as svegwiki has never existed on Miraheze, based on my searches. You have, however, requested and created vegwiki, which is both open and active. Can you please visit that wiki and let me know if you're able to access it? Thanks.

Also, a question in case this request does get approved - would it be possible to remove bureaucrat rights from the old bureaucrats of the wiki, considering the fact that they haven't frequented the wiki in a long time?

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): Lukaz taro No
  • Reason: The wiki has been inactive for two months and the bureaucrat has constructed another wiki (terra-98) that is the same as earth-98. No one has used the wiki, and I would like to adopt it, if that's okay.

Re.min.a (talk) 03:08, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

Re.min.a This X mark.svg cannot be done as the wiki is not closed per Dormancy Policy. However, as I do see all bureaucrats and administrators on this wiki are indeed inactive, what you can do is hold a local election by creating a local election page, as described below. If you want a Steward to add a local sitenotice to the wiki advertising your local election, in lieu of active bureaucrats, this can be done. Hope that helps.
Since it seems like this wiki has no active bureaucrats, I would recommend you hold a local election, taking care to take into account the local wiki's permissions elections policies. Assuming your wiki has no local permissions request policies or other election rules, you would follow global customs and conventions for such requests, which see you create an election page on that wiki, on a prominent page, stating the number and type of position(s) you're running for (i.e., administrator, bureaucrat), the name(s) of the candidate(s) running, how long the election shall run for (best practice for 5-7 calendar days), the minimum support ratio required for a successful election, and whether an election can be declared successful after the minimum timeframe if no one expresses a view (i.e., election by acclamation). Once your process has concluded (recommended to last for at least 5-7 calendar days), return to stewards' noticeboard and, in a new thread, state the wiki address, local location of the election, and a steward will assess your local election in absence of a local bureaucrat.
