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.

ukps.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: ukps.miraheze.org
  • Username: KeevoWiki
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO
  • Reason: I previously contributed a lot to this Wiki and would like to use it again for a future project.

KeevoWiki 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 the bureaucrat user group may be added to your account at that time. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 21:05, 28 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
KeevoWiki I'm closing this as X mark.svg not done as there's been been zero contributions on the wiki since it was reopened over a month ago. Nonetheless, the wiki is open, and you're free to contribute to the wiki and hold a local election, to which Stewards can be engaged to assess in lieu of locally active bureaucrats. Thank you.

Moletom Looking through your contributions to this wiki since it was reopened, though many of your edits are minor in nature, you are the only recently active contributor to this wiki, I'm thus satisfied of your commitment level to continue contributing to the wiki and to serving as its custodian/caretaker, particularly as this wiki only has one fairly inactive local bureaucrat, 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.

corejourneywiki.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: corejourneywiki.miraheze.org
  • Username: Donutjonut
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO
  • Reason: The wiki is inactive, and I am a prominent member of the community that the wiki is supposed to be serving.

youtube.miraheze.org

Status:    In progress
  • Wiki: youtube.miraheze.org
  • Username: Bukkit
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: This Wiki seems to be unused, and this seems like a good idea to try to grow. I am extremely into YouTube.

Bukkit  •  Talk •  Contribs 12:44, 13 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Bukkit Thank you for your request. Since this wiki is completely unused and since the original wiki request was quite unclear in terms of the wiki's intended purpose and scope, before I reopen this wiki, can you give me a few more details on the purpose of this wiki, define the scope you intend to have for the wiki, and explain the type of content it will contain? Will the wiki propose to write articles on YouTubers, or strictly just encyclopedic content on YouTube as a platform and company, with some focus on the channels and genres of videos it'll contain? Dmehus (talk) 23:55, 25 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It would talk about YouTubers and videos. It would be kinda like Wikitubia. Bukkit (talk) (C) 12:56, 26 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

pullbackcars.miraheze.org

Status:    Cannot be undertaken
  • Wiki: pullbackcars.miraheze.org
  • Username: DarkMatterMan4500
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No.
  • Reason: The founder is no longer around, but I'd like to maintain and take good care of the wiki, while at the same time change some stuff around so it doesn't look bland or boring as it is.

DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 11:10, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

DarkMatterMan4500 When I invited you to hold a local election, as the preferred way to take over management of this wiki and continue building it, you said you weren't really interested. The reason I ask is because it is far quicker and more efficient to simply begin contributing to a wiki and hold a local election than to go through an adoption request process, which typically will take at least two weeks (depending on your contributions). Before I reopen this wiki, can you tell me why, in your own words, you are now interested in this wiki, and what your plans are for this wiki? What sort of content and topics will you propose to write about? Dmehus (talk) 13:59, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus That was then, this is now. And if you look at the wiki, it's entirely inactive. And as for your other question: It was intended to be about cars and such, so I don't intend to change any of what it was intended to be. While yes, I wasn't entirely interested at the time, but I've changed my mind about that. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 14:02, 15 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
DarkMatterMan4500 Thank you for the reply, but was this wiki even ever closed per Dormancy Policy? I'm showing that it was never reopened by a Steward, so I tend to think it may have just gone inactive, if it even went inactive at all. Nonetheless, since it was never closed, procedurally this X mark.svg cannot be undertaken. You can, however, contribute to the wiki and hold a local election, following these guidelines, then request a Steward to assess your election after approximately 5-7 calendar days by posting a request at stewards' noticeboard.

atrociousyoutubers.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: atrociousyoutubers.miraheze.org
  • Username: FinesseFinnish
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I (should) have member rights to this wiki since I was active when it was not closed, and none of the bureaucrats appear to be active anymore, so I, a former contributor, would like to be able to take this wiki into my own hands, especially since it weirdly hasn't been autodeleted, despite the fact that 6 months from the last time the wiki was active would've been March, and it is now May.

FinesseFinnish (talk) 04:11, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

X mark.svg Not done as the wiki was closed by Stewards for systemic, remediated Content Policy and Code of Conduct violations. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 14:55, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

goldenmemes.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done

SPEEDYBEAVER (talk) 14:22, 26 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

SPEEDYBEAVER This wiki was manually Yes check.svg closed by SporeShroom2007, presumably following a community discussion or discussion among the wiki's collective administration team, so I'm going to mark this as X mark.svg not done. I'd recommend reaching out to them on their user talk page and see if they'd consider reopening the wiki. Dmehus (talk) 17:49, 26 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

senkan.miraheze.org

Status:    In progress

I'd like to adopt the wiki page Senkan, as the owner of the page has left it entirely unused and dormant 2 times now, and has no intentions of returning to it. It's a project me and my friends much enjoyed and we wish to continue it Stinky The Skunk (talk) 17:41, 27 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hey this was my wiki, whats up with you people closing it? Hey I dont know those codes stuff. Wats up with that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Khannea (talkcontribs)

freewiki.miraheze.org

Status:    In progress
  • Wiki: freewiki.miraheze.org
  • Username: Seodaemungu Student
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO
  • Reason: I like to adopt this wiki because it is no edits for 60 days and I want to save this wiki for the proverb(속담)

Seodaemungu Student (talk) 06:43, 31 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

wretchedyoutubevideos.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done

WindowsViennaFish2010 (talk) 08:41, 4 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

WindowsViennaFish2010 As this wiki was manually closed by a local bureaucrat, ostensibly as part of an on-wiki or off-wiki discussion with other bureaucrats and/or the community, the prevailing Steward custom or practice of at least two other Stewards is that Stewards do not reopen manually closed wikis, so I'm closing this as X mark.svg not done. However, if this is an alternate account of a pre-existing account where you were either (a) a significant contributor or (b) a previous or current bureaucrat or sysop on this wiki and you can reply from that account that this account is your confirmed alternate account, I'm willing to reevaluate this request, particularly if this closure was not done in line with a fulsome discussion of all significant contributors to the wiki. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 14:49, 4 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

duovision.miraheze.org

Status:    On hold
  • Wiki: duovision.miraheze.org
  • Username: DreamWeaver7
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I am a member of the community that started the wiki, but unfortunately it was abandoned. I would like to revive this wiki, contribute to it and share it to my community that is still very much active.

DreamWeaver7 (talk) 11:42, 5 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

DreamWeaver7 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 the bureaucrat user group may be added to your account at that time. Thanks.

hypixel.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: hypixel.miraheze.org
  • Username: Ronjapatch
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: Wiki is inactive and no edits have been made to the Wiki itself, hence why I am requesting to adopt it.
~ Ronja (utc) 14:01, 6 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ronjapatch Thank you for your request. Unfortunately, this X mark.svg cannot be done as the wiki is not closed per Dormancy Policy. I'd instead you visit the local bureaucrat's user talk page, offer to contribute to the wiki, and request any rights you require (i.e., sysop, bureaucrat etc.) to help do that. If you don't receive a response within a week or so, you can hold a local election on the wiki, following these guidelines, then request a Steward assess your local election after a further calendar week. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 14:30, 6 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

mymelopedia.miraheze.org

Status:    On hold
  • Wiki: mymelopedia.miraheze.org
  • Username: Sophiebun
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO
  • Reason: Soon after starting up work on the wiki, I suffered a hard drive failure, leaving me unable to really get started. Since recovering from it, attempts to access my existing account have been fruitless - as I was not aware that I had to enable password reset emails, and my password was lost as it was saved to my laptop's hard drive. I now wish and intend to go all in on this wiki now that I'm back in a position to do so. Thank you.

Sophiebun (talk) 14:41, 9 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Sophiebun 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 the bureaucrat user group may be added to your account at that time. Thanks.
As an alternative to the above, you may wish to create a local election page somewhere on the wiki, following the guidelines in the linked page, and then after 5-7 calendar days, {{ping}} me here to assess your election. The process is usually procedurally much quicker than an adoption process. Dmehus (talk) 15:59, 9 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

tssu.miraheze.org

Status:    Cannot be undertaken
  • Wiki: tssu.miraheze.org
  • Username: NeverthelesS
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): Yes
  • Reason: The old project it was used for fell through with everyone getting busy but know we're all available (hopefully for a while) again and I wanna try to remake the wiki again.

NeverthelesS (talk) 00:47, 10 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

NeverthelesS Unfortunately, this X mark.svg cannot be undertaken as the wiki database was dropped in here in this batch. Nevertheless, I've recreated your original wiki, selecting an appropriate category and purpose for your wiki, and requested an XML import be done from Reception123's delbackups on jobrunner3. Please follow along here. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 05:51, 10 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
