Archives of Requests for adoption [e]

worsttvnetworks.miraheze.org

Status:    withdrawn
• Wiki: worsttvnetworks.miraheze.org
• 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)
What is the difference between this wiki and the other wiki? R4356th 3,263 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 3,263 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)
Blubabluba9990 I'm closing this as  withdrawn per your above comments that the intent is to merge this wiki with another wiki. If you wish for this wiki to be deleted once it's fully merged, please hold a local discussion on the local wiki with any participating local users and request Stewards to assess your local discussion for wiki deletion at stewards' noticeboard. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 16:23, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

undictionary.miraheze.org

Status:    On hold
• Wiki: undictionary.miraheze.org
• Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
• Reason: Undictionary is one of the three sister wikis of Chinese Uncyclopedia that have been closed due to being inactive. For Undictionary, I would like to give it a try and save the wiki from its deletion.

TEntEn4279 Apologies for the delay in responding to this. This LGTM, as the wiki was not manually closed by a local bureaucrat, so I've 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. Dmehus (talk) 16:18, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

pokemon.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
• Wiki: pokemon.miraheze.org
• Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO

PokeMyth This LGTM, as the wiki was not manually closed by a local bureaucrat, so I've 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. Dmehus (talk) 14:44, 22 February 2021 (UTC)
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 you temporary `confirmed` permissions on the wiki, so you can edit the main page. Dmehus (talk) 17:07, 22 February 2021 (UTC)
Not done PokeMyth, there hasn't been any contributions to this wiki, other than a single file upload, in nearly a month since reopening, so I've closed this as not done. Should the wiki ever need to be reopened again and local bureaucrats are not active, please advise Stewards at stewards' noticeboard. Additionally, you can always contribute to the wiki and hold a local election, which Stewards can be called upon (via the same venue above) to assess in absence of local bureaucrats. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 16:11, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

foodsharinghamburg.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
• Wiki: foodsharinghamburg.miraheze.org
• Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
• Reason: We're a large community and I'm one of the editors of this wiki. Unfortunately there were no logs in the last 2 months, so it was closed. We need to reopen it.

Foodsaver1 (talk) 23:10, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Foodsaver1 This LGTM, as the wiki was not manually closed by a local bureaucrat, so I've 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. Dmehus (talk) 23:29, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
Foodsaver1 Since you haven't made any contributions to this wiki since it was reopened nearly three weeks ago, I'm going to assume you were just looking for the wiki to be reopened, which has been  done above, and will still instead close this request as  not done. If you require local permissions on the wiki and bureaucrats are not active, you may hold a local election, and request Stewards to assess it at stewards' noticeboard in their stead. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 16:07, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
We've made minor changes to the wiki since then. Will the foodsharinghamburg wiki stay open? We're a community of volunteer workers and look for simple solutions. As long as we can edit existing articles or add new ones, we're happy with it. Foodsaver1 (talk) 17:10, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
Foodsaver1 It will stay active as long as someone makes an edit or logged action on the wiki once every forty five days. If the existing `bureaucrat` is not active on the wiki, you can hold a local election on the wiki, and then request Stewards to assess your local election, promoting a new bureaucrat in line with the local community's consensus-based discussion. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 17:21, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

venkon.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
• Wiki: venkon.miraheze.org
• Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
• Reason: This wiki has been closed due to inactivity and I wish to revitalize it. 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?

Samanaslietuvas (talk) 20:43, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

Not done as I'm afraid this has been superceded by the wiki being reopened, and thus not eligible for adoption, and now . Additionally, I was also not satisfied with your reason provided for wanting to adopt what appears to be a personal wiki of the wiki's sole contributor. Feel free to request a new wiki, though, taking care to define a clear purpose, scope, and topic(s) for your wiki. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 23:28, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

unbooks.miraheze.org

Status:    Done
• Wiki: unbooks.miraheze.org
• Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
• Reason: Unbooks is one of the sister wikis of the Chinese Uncyclopedia community that may be closed due to inactivity. I would like to save the wiki from its deletion.

meme.miraheze.org

Status:    withdrawn
• Wiki: meme.miraheze.org
• Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
• Reason: The wiki never even got edited, and I really like memes, so this wiki will not be inactive for a very long time.

WikiJS 19:32, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

WikiJS Looking at this wiki, it looks like more of a good-faith idea that never really got off the ground. As well, I note the wiki uses the WikiBase extension, which suggests it is intended to be more of a meme database repository than an encyclopedic wiki with written prose. Additionally, the original wiki request was a bit vague and unclear. Please note that the wiki adoption process is not a quick process, and does typically take several weeks to assess quantity and quality of your contributions, so if you could please advise if you wish to proceed with this adoption request, or if you wish to request a similar wiki with a different subdomain, taking care to define a clear purpose, scope, and topic(s) for your wiki, that'd be much appreciated. Dmehus (talk) 19:45, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
I will request a similar wiki instead. Thanks for the help! WikiJS 19:53, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
No problem. Please make sure you define a clear purpose, scope, and topic(s) for your wiki. Please define clearly all topics your broad wiki will propose to write about and what sort of sourcing policies your wiki will have. Dmehus (talk) 19:57, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
Can you link me to my wiki request? I forgot to change the category to humor/satire. WikiJS 19:58, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
WikiJS I've already approved the wiki, so it's been sent to our `jobrunner` server. Once it's created, you can change your wiki's category in Special:ManageWiki on your wiki. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 20:01, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
Oh alright, thanks again! :) WikiJS 20:02, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
No problem again. I've messaged Reception123 to pause an import to `callipediawiki` temporarily and execute the `runJobs.php` maintenance script on `metawiki` to clear the heavy job backlog. Once that's done, your wiki should be created. Dmehus (talk) 20:04, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

poetry.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
• Wiki: poetry.miraheze.org
• Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
• Reason: The wiki has been closed to the public and there seems to be no visible activity going on. As I see it, the subdomain is being used for something meant to be much more general/wide. I would like to takeover the wiki and continue its purpose as a subdomain/repository of poetry. It would be a waste to let the subdomain remain closed whilst also not receiving any care/updates. Nyl (talk) 06:50, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Nyl Yeah, it's too bad that wiki was approved on that general of a subdomain for what is a private wiki containing, presumably, poems that wiki requestor has either collected or authored. Unfortunately, as it's a private wiki and you were neither a `member` or `sysop` at the time of closure, it cannot be adopted at requests for adoption. What I'd suggest instead is wait until this wiki is deleted per Dormancy Policy and the database dropped shortly thereafter, then request a wiki on this subdomain. Alternatively, you can request a different subdomain and, when this wiki has been deleted per Dormancy Policy and the database name/subdomain subsequently made available, you can file a Phabricator ticket to rename your wiki's subdomain and database name to this database name and subdomain. Note that your wiki's old database name and subdomain would then be made available. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 15:02, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Very unfortunate, but oh well. Nyl (talk) 06:07, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

crazypedia.miraheze.org

Status:    On hold
• Wiki: crazypedia.miraheze.org
• Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no):
• Reason: This wiki I want because it is good, the owner abandoned it, its last edition was October 2020.

I would ask for a new wiki, but that name is already good for me TheNino (talk) 17:05, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

TheNino This wiki does not seem to have more than a handful of content pages, and I'm not even certain it was approved with a clear enough purpose and scope for the wiki. Nevertheless, setting that aside, the requests for adoption is not a quick process as it does typically take several weeks to assess the requestor's contributions to the wiki. Your better option would be to request a new wiki, taking care to articulate a clear purpose for your wiki, define its scope, and describe the type of content/topic(s) your wiki will contain. When this wiki is deleted per Dormancy Policy and the database dropped, you can then file a Phabricator request to rename your wiki's database name and subdomain (see above similar request). Please advise if you still prefer to adopt this wiki, or will go that route. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 17:12, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

PERCE-NEIGE (talk) 07:39, 15 March 2021 (UTC) Hello. I created a wiki, but I think it has been deleted. Should I recreate it, or maybe it's still somewhere? The name is Cogitopédie. Thank you.

Not done PERCE-NEIGE Hi, your wiki was effectively deleted per Dormancy Policy but not dropped yet as it is still on Special:DeletedWikis. Anyway, this is not the place for ask for this. You can request a steward to undelete your wiki on Stewards' noticeboard :). Thanks you. HeartsDo (Talk / Global / Wiki Creator) 07:56, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
I've your deleted wiki for you, PERCE-NEIGE. Please make sure you make one recent change on your wiki before tomorrow to prevent your wiki from being reclosed per Dormancy Policy. If your wiki is reclosed, you can reopen it in Special:ManageWiki on your wiki. In future, if your wiki is ever deleted in the future, as HeartsDo says above, please make the request for undeletion at stewards' noticeboard. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 15:53, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
