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:    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)

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

@RoboticJeffy: The wiki has been reopened. If you actively contribute during the week, a Steward will grant you administrator and bureaucrat rights. Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:13, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
@RoboticJeffy: Though I could see you had some activities on the wiki, I would like to see more to make sure this request goes successful. Having only 3 edits could mean that you only showed minimal activities just to meet the criteria.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 10:12, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

I'm not a bureaucrat or admin, and I feel like it needs renovation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by RoboticJeffy (talkcontribs)

The wiki is now reopened. Please show your contribution for the next 1 week to make this request successful.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 01:13, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

Status:    Invalid
  • Wiki:
  • Username: Boatfullogoats
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no):No
  • Reason: i did an oopsy, did not know you could adopt wikis before i created oldfagdotorg. Requesting to adopt the wiki since it is inactive. (edit: if it works, i will be fine with oldfagdotorg wiki being deleted, and then giving me on hold access to oldfag.)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: A wiki of a similar name is owned by this user (requested before they considered adoption) ~ RhinosF1 - (chat) · CA · contribs · Rights -      around) 20:17, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment to stewards: Yes, previously the user has requested a wiki URL named "oldfag", but that wiki is already existed and I has declined the user request. Later the user has requested a wiki URL named "oldfagdotorg", and has been created. SA 13 Bro (talk) 22:43, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
X mark.png Not Done I have checked the wiki to find out that it's currently not eligible for adoption (the wiki was created on September 1st). However, you may edit the wiki freely as an editor as you can do on other wikis, and if you wish to have advanced permissions, please form a community decision there. As for the wiki you created, it's up to you and you can request for deletion on Stewards' noticeboard.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 09:59, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
