Requests for reopening wikis
You may request a closed wiki be reopened (if you are not a bureaucrat) if it was closed due to inactivity.

Pictogram voting info.svg Note: If a wiki was manually closed, any reopening must be discussed with the local administrators or raised on the Stewards' noticeboard. We cannot help you here.

If you would additionally like advanced rights (administrator and/or bureaucrat), please start a local election instead.

If you are already a bureaucrat on the wiki, go to Special:ManageWiki/core (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 request a reopening.

For other global issues, use the Stewards' noticeboard.

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: This is an important part of websites recorded from domestic search platforms (such as Baidu, Sogou, 360 and so on) in China (just like imageres.dll file in Windows, looks unimportant but deleting it will cause instability), not just the Western ones, and has a lot of game articles, so I am asking to reopen this wiki because I want to rescue this project. I'll add more content and try updating it as much as I can, so I want to revive this wiki and keep this wiki active again and develop it so that it doesn't die out. Many thanks. As a result, I would like to re-open the wiki. Please process this request ASAP.

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO
  • Reason: The Nova Galantis Wiki was originally created by someone else within the RCTC community, they no longer have time to create and work on this wiki. I am taking over and continuing to add the newer editions (Up to Edition 45) This is in order to help create an easier archive and history of the contest and previous/future winners of the contest for the community.

@CardioWiki: You can go to Special:ManageWiki/core and uncheck the closed box yourself, as you're a bureaucrat on the wiki. Just make sure to save your changes. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 23:33, 4 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No.
  • Reason: It is a valuable resource on a niche topic I will contribute to.

@ArguaBILL: Hi there. The wiki in question has not been closed, so you should be able to edit freely without issue. If you are requesting rights on the wiki, please follow the Local elections procedures. If you are requesting an inactivity exemption for the wiki, so the wiki won't be closed after periods of inactivity, please see the Dormancy Policy for more information. If you need any assistance or have questions regarding them above, please let me know and I'll be happy to help. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 20:48, 6 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
When I click on the link it says "Wiki not found". ArguaBILL (talk) 11:42, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: Looks like this was an abandoned test wiki about the dropout.TV show Dimension 20. I'd like to reopen and expand it. The plan is to chronicle the individual campaigns of Dimension 20, including episode summaries, actor biographies, and expanded lore about its fictional worlds, including characters, locations, and histories. Would implement similar features to, where I am currently an administrator. Would prefer to start with private initially to give me time to set up basic infrastructure and determine which, if any, edits to import from the accompanying FANDOM wiki. I accidentally requested reopening in the wrong place, but I want to make sure that it's clear for the decline reason that this is indeed the same topic and not a new one.

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): yes
  • Reason: Unable to access Special:ManageWiki on the subdomain despite being a bureaucrat/founder; "Wiki not found" persists. Wiki is for a project that has seen periodic lulls in activity, but work has resumed with the intent of continuing to use and expand the subdomain as our information repository.
