Request for adoption

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.


Status:    Not done
  • Wiki:
  • Username: Rawvek
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: This wiki is for a mobile game called Blustone, which is developed by Visual Shower. I have been playing this game for over a year and a half and actually JUST stumbled upon this particular wiki. This is a GREAT wiki for the game that already includes a lot of good information, but it's been shut down because of no edits and I would love to be able to add new information to it myself. I'd love to be able to take over editing this wiki in order to give new and old players of Blustone a place to go to that has ALL of the information you could ask for in regards to the game.

@Rawvek: the wiki has been reopened, please show signs of activity before permissions can be transferred. -- Void Whispers 16:37, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
X mark.png Not Done I'm not comfortable with the level of activity so far (only three edits from you, and one from someone else). If you require further assistance, please contact me. -- Void Whispers 18:18, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

  • The wiki is now reopened. Please show your contributions to the wiki to make this request successful.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 09:22, 31 July 2019 (UTC) Nope It didn't work

I have unchecked the "inactivity" box, and it should be editable now.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 01:51, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
X mark.png Not Done Although the wiki was previously editable, it has since re-closed automatically. -- Void Whispers 18:19, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

  • OK, I've made it on hold. Please show some edits to make this request successful. -- 開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 01:44, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
    • Yes check.svg Done As I could see you are calm now and have been fairly active on the wiki, I'd like to close this request as successful.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 08:19, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

(Non-Steward Comment) @JJTA1211: This wiki doesn't look to be eligible for adoption. As far as I know, wikis are only eligible for adoption under the dormancy policy. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat) · CA · contribs · Rights -      online) 19:59, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
X mark.png Not Done per the comment above. There is still an active administrator on that wiki editing within the week. -- Void Whispers 20:49, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

Status:    Done
  • Wiki:
  • Username: FraazT0
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I'd like to take over the wiki, as whoever made it simply forgot about it. I own the counterpart on FANDOM but I can't say I like it there, and I'd gladly move my community over to Miraheze.

@FraazT0: I've reopened the wiki. Please actively contribute on the wiki, and a Steward will give you administrator and bureaucrat rights. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:04, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
@Reception123: Er, I'd very much like to do that, but I lack permissions to edit any of it. FraazT0 (talk) 14:17, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
@FraazT0: Sorry, there seems to have been an error. It should be reopened now. Reception123 (talk) (C) 14:42, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
@Reception123: Uh, how many edits will be enough to take over the wiki? I'd be able to do much more if I was able to, for instance, import templates. FraazT0 (talk) 10:27, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
@FraazT0: There's not really a specific number. A steward should take a look (@Void: , @開拓者:) Reception123 (talk) (C) 10:53, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
@FraazT0: Generally, I would like to see more than one or two edits. But if you need advanced rights, I could add admin temporarily and grant permanent rights later. -- Void Whispers 18:23, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
@Void: Understood. I suppose temporary perms could work. But honestly, I'm trying to adopt a wiki that was literally empty before I came... it's not like I'm trying to steal anyone else's place. FraazT0 (talk) 13:33, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
I've added admin for a week. If you need anything else, please let me know. -- Void Whispers 15:32, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, upgraded permissions to permanent and added bureaucrat. -- Void Whispers 18:01, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

@JarrahTree: The wiki no longer exists. Since I assume you are a bureaucrat on the wiki from previous comments, please create a task on Phabricator so we can try to see if there is a backup for your wiki. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:08, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
I have not a problem starting again fresh with a new version completely with no need to recover archive, is that possible? overand (talk) 06:33, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

You are a bureaucrat so you can use Special:ManageWiki to reopen your wiki. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:54, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
