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.

X mark.png Not Done As the creator of the wiki @Huursa:, try going to Special:ManageWiki and untick the 'inactive' and 'closed' options. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (     offline) 08:26, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki:
  • Username: NeuroticKnight
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I am an admin of the site, and this was initially done with a former collaborator who is no longer on the project and has not responded, hence I would like to adopt it to resume control of my project and have access to the information therein.

@NeuroticKnight: The wiki has been reopened. If you contribute actively during the next week a Steward will grant you the appropriate permissions. Reception123 (talk) (C) 19:04, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
While the wiki seems to have not been reopened even though I did reopen it (technical error probably) you haven't made any mention of that on this page and the 1 week period has passed. I will therefore mark this request as not done for the time being. If you are still interested in adopting this wiki and contributing please let me know.

  • Wiki:
  • Username: OrphanedPixel
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No.
  • Reason: I noticed that this wiki hasn't had an edit since its creation in March of last year, with its only page being the main page. I'd like to make this a good resource for information about Minecraft, especially with the Minecraft Wiki slowly going to shit due to Gamepedia being bought by Wikia/Fandom.

@OrphanedPixel: The wiki is not closed. Please contact local administrators and bureaucrats. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:16, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
@Reception123: How does a wiki become closed? Edit: I just checked the Dormancy Policy and it appears that the wiki was eligible for closing until two days ago, when I updated the front page. OrphanedPixel (talk) (C) 21:26, 25 November 2019 (UTC)

@Breakin' Benny: Don't worry, Benny. I got your back on Discord. Since I have an old account that has it's bureaucrat on HRWW, I suppose I'll hand it to you. GasMask0217 (talk) 16:13, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

  • Wiki:
  • Username: KamafaDelgato021469
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I am interested in a wiki for hosting of random content. I used to be on the Random-ness Wikia, but then I got into a situation I shouldn't have, and I got banned.
