Please remember to:

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

For other global issues please see: Stewards' noticeboard

  • Wiki: battlecats.miraheze.org
  • Username: うざっきー

nomenber.miraheze.org

Status:    Done
  • Wiki: nomenber.miraheze.org
  • Username: Amaezone
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: nomenber is a yearly initiative to highlight women and gender minorities' works in movies, music, books and all kinds of arts. It's coming back this november ! There is still a lot of artists and works to add to the wiki (the previous owner forgot there was an automatic expiration date when the wiki was inactive)

Amaezone (talk) 17:12, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

Amaezone This LGTM, as the wiki was not manually closed by a local bureaucrat, so I've Yes check.svg 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. In looking at your existing local wiki contributions, it looks like you've already made forty (40) edits to the wiki. Please try and write at least a couple articles (ideally start class) for the wiki in the next several weeks, in order for bureaucrat and sysop rights to be added to your account. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 17:37, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
Amaezone Though you've not made very many contributions to this wiki since it was reopened, as you have made the second most contributions to the wiki (after the existing, and currently inactive, bureaucrat and administrator), I'm 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.

duovision.miraheze.org

Status:    Done
  • Wiki: duovision.miraheze.org
  • Username: Sugaryoof
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO
  • Reason: I would like to adopt this wiki because, it's my friend's contest wiki which got abandoned and I want to ensure all the info is up to date. He probably hasn't noticed this, so this is why I request to adopt it, to prevent the wiki from being deleted.

Sugaryoof (talk) 22:01, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

Sugaryoof This LGTM, as the wiki was not manually closed by a local bureaucrat, so I've Yes check.svg 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. Dmehus (talk) 22:47, 23 March 2021 (UTC)
Relisted. Dmehus (talk) 13:40, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
Sugaryoof Similar to this successful adoption request, looking though you've not made very many contributions to this wiki since it was reopened, the most active contributors to the wiki have only made 37 and 13 edits, respectively, the latter of whom is the incumbent bureaucrat and sysop. Additionally, as a song contest wiki, they frequently have only a few pages, and your few edit(s) that you have made have substantial contribution(s) in terms of byte size and page length, 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.

Voval17 (talk) 22:38, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

Voval17 As you're a bureaucrat on this wiki, please go into Special:ManageWiki, uncheck the "closed" and any "inactive" boxes, and then hit "submit." Once you've done that, please let me know, so I can close this request. If you haven't reopened the wiki by tomorrow, I'll do it for you. Dmehus (talk) 22:49, 6 April 2021 (UTC)
Voval17 Though you are a bureaucrat on this wiki and it would be better for you to reopen the wiki yourself so you know how to do this for the next time, I've Yes check.svg locally reopened the wiki for you to close this request as I would hate to see your wiki eventually deleted per Dormancy Policy and you'd requested it be reopened. Should your wiki become closed again in the future, all you need to do is go into Special:ManageWiki on your wiki and uncheck the "closed" box to reopen it. Thanks.

atrociousyoutubers.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: atrociousyoutubers.miraheze.org
  • Username: RyanTheInkling
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: The original owners of the wiki have effectively abandoned the wiki, and it is very close to deletion. One of the owners, MeMeGuYWasLost, has deleted all of his online accounts, and I cannot contact him for permission to gain ownership of the wiki. Because of that, I am requesting for ownership of this wiki.

RyanTheInkling (talk) 17:27, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

This, unfortunately, X mark.svg cannot be done as the wiki in question is a private wiki, and you hold neither member nor sysop rights with read access to the wiki. Dmehus (talk) 19:07, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
But can you reopen it, please? SPEEDYBEAVER (talk) 20:18, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

After several weeks, your contributions to the wiki will be assessed by Stewards, and the bureaucrat user group may be added to your account at that time. In looking at your existing local wiki contributions, it looks like you've already made the most editing contributions to this wiki, as far as I can tell. Please try and make a few more edits within the next several weeks in order for rights to be added to your account. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 19:15, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

Dmehus (talk) 13:19, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
As there's been zero contributions in more than ten (10) calendar days since this wiki was reopened, I'm going to close this as X mark.svg not done. Please be advised that you can always hold a local election, following these guidelines, and request a Steward assess your election after at least 5-7 calendar days have elapsed by placing a request at stewards' noticeboard.

  • Reason: Hi, I'm one of the developers of the game this wiki is related to, and wanted to take over to provide some templates and help sort of reboot the effort for others who would want to help contribute.

ArcOfDream (talk) 08:32, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Dmehus (talk) 13:19, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
Hi, it looks like we've got contact with the original bureaucrat of the wiki so I'll likely not need to take over anymore! ArcOfDream (talk) 14:06, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
ArcOfDream Oh, that's great to hear. You might want to consider asking them to elevate your permissions to bureaucrat, so you can assist them with managing the wiki. Dmehus (talk) 14:10, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

DuchessTheSponge (talk) 16:34, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

DuchessTheSponge This, unfortunately, X mark.svg cannot be done as the wiki is not closed per Dormancy Policy. However, since you were previously a bureaucrat and sysop on the wiki, I suspect Cocopuff2018 would reinstate your permissions as they only removed them per "inactivity." I've notified of them of your request, and if they don't reply soon, you can start a local election on the wiki, then Stewards can be requested to assess your election. Dmehus (talk) 19:41, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. DuchessTheSponge (talk) 19:42, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
No problem. :) Dmehus (talk) 19:44, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
