This page is for requesting to reopen ('adopt') a wiki (if you are not a bureaucrat) that has been closed due to inactivity.

Pictogram voting info.svg Note: Only wikis that have been automatically closed due to inactivity can be reopened here! If the wiki was manually closed, any reopening must be discussed with the closing management or raised on the Stewards' noticeboard.

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

If you are already a bureaucrat on the wiki simply, 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 (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.

unwatchablesports.miraheze.org

Status:  Done

FatBurn0000 (sandbox | CentralAuth) 06:14, 6 April 2022 (UTC) Per the linked conversation, it appears Doug was looking for a confirmation, which you gave; unfortunately it seems he became bogged in other things and was unable to followup. Reiterating his advisory to try and focus on wikis you will do justice for, this is Yes check.svg done. --Raidarr (talk) 14:05, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

  • Reason: I want to adopt this wiki and dedicate it to fallout lore from all sources and some meta lore.

RigelatinCommando (talk) 13:15, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

@RigelatinCommando: Frankly, this wiki is broken. I'm going to look into it/bring it up to SRE and colleagues, and get back to you on this. --Raidarr (talk) 14:17, 13 April 2022 (UTC)
Thank you for your efforts! RigelatinCommando (talk) 16:46, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

  • Username: R66 (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason:

R66 (talk) 18:59, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

@R66: What is the reason for wanting this wiki reopened? Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:23, 12 April 2022 (UTC)
I wanted to make a roads wiki, however they suggested to adopt the wiki, so therefore I'm trying to adopt the wiki to make my roads wiki. — Preceding unsigned comment added by R66 (talkcontribs) 10:25, 12 April 2022‎
@R66: per your elaboration above, the wiki is now Yes check.svg open. Feel free to consider starting a local election if you would like advanced rights on the wiki, as the current management is (clearly) not active. If you have any further inquiries, feel free to ask on my talk page. --Raidarr (talk) 14:38, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

  • Username: Bweaver1983 (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I would like to reopen it so I and others who want to post things on the topic can do so on that wiki

Bweaver1983 (talk) 02:59, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

@Bweaver1983: Please read the message I left on your talk page. I have corrected this very malformed request but you still must indicate why you want this reopened. Thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:03, 15 April 2022 (UTC)
Per their talk page, I have added a reason. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:15, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

theidochronicles.miraheze.org

Status:  Locally handled

GeoffreyjenEdwards (talk) 23:42, 17 April 2022 (UTC)

bimagv.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: Bimagv (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): Yes
  • Reason: I'm still writting in this wiki. So, please reopened my WiKi

Bimagv (talk) 05:26, 19 April 2022 (UTC)

@Bimagv: Hi there, to reopen your wiki, click here and uncheck the "Closed" box. Agent Isai Talk to me! 22:18, 19 April 2022 (UTC)
@Bimagv: while I've gone ahead and Yes check.svg opened this, I reiterate Agent Isai's advice that you not only can reopen the wiki via Special:ManageWiki, it is the far more efficient, proper and preferred way to do so. This page is for (non-bureaucrat) people who are unable to open wikis but are interested in contributing to them. As the founder and primary contributor, it is your responsibility to keep it open by making contributions either consistently/with the help of any volunteers, or intermittently if you lack the time/community to be persistent (once every month would do the job). If you develop enough material on the wiki this way and there is quite a bit to come back to, you may request an exemption that will keep the wiki open on its own for much longer. I've left a message locally pointing to this notice, since it has come up on this page before. --Raidarr (talk) 17:35, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

geometrydash.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: Lé Gunfish (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I want to make a wiki on geometry dash on miraheze, for informational and entertainment purposes.

Lé Gunfish (talk) 21:00, 19 April 2022 (UTC)

@Lé Gunfish: Yes check.svg Open. I notice the wiki was requested, accepted, and then mostly abandoned. If you would like to take the requestor's place as wiki management, feel free to set up a local election. --Raidarr (talk) 17:14, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

geometrydash.miraheze.org

Status:  Redundant
  • Username: Lé Gunfish (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I want to make a wiki on geometry dash on miraheze, for informational and entertainment purposes.

Lé Gunfish (talk) 17:51, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

Your wiki has already reopened per above, so this request is X mark.svg invalid HeartsDo (Talk / Global / Wiki Creator) 06:38, 24 April 2022 (UTC)

xpforever.miraheze.org

Status:  Not done
  • Username: WindowsXP4Ever (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I love Windows XP! The original person already has a retro Windows Wiki that has all the other retro Windows from somewhere like Windows 95 to Windows 7. But since Windows XP is my favorite, I want this one because Windows XP is my favorite of every operating system.

WindowsXP4Ever (talk) 17:00, 21 April 2022 (UTC)

@WindowsXP4Ever: I appreciate your enthusiasm, but in this case the wiki was manually closed and merged off to a broader Retro Windows wiki (which you acknowledged). It has the same style, management and structure as the original + allows the same amount of XP content plus other retro systems, and so what you are requesting would create a fork that directly competes with its purpose - not all items require their dedicated wiki, if a broader one fully accommodates. I encourage that you contribute to the new version instead, and I'm sure its operator, Xack would be happy to have you. --Raidarr (talk) 13:08, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

2021pedia.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: Penarc1 (CentralAuth)

Penarc1 (talk) 17:26, 21 April 2022 (UTC) https://2021pedia.miraheze.org/wiki/User:Penarc1 R C Peña

@Penarc1: though the rationale is weak, based on contributions from December the wiki is Yes check.svg open. --Raidarr (talk) 12:31, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

eldenring.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: Praske (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: Interested in making a more comprehensive/technical wiki for Elden Ring, along the lines of Bloodborne's independent wiki. This domain seems fully abandoned with no edits since September, and only 11 edits total. Hoping to develop it if I can.

Praske (talk) 20:51, 23 April 2022 (UTC)

@Praske: Yes check.svg open. --Raidarr (talk) 12:54, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

Camino.miraheze.org

Status:  Undeleted
  • Username: The Golden Viatori (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I would like to reopen this wiki for a project I am working on

The Golden Viatori (talk) 01:53, 24 April 2022 (UTC)

@The Golden Viatori: Yes check.svg undeleted, since it had expired but was not dropped from the database. --Raidarr (talk) 13:01, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

avalon.miraheze.org

  • Username: Stekayk (CentralAuth)

bravenine.miraheze.org

Status:  Done

Kelvinwop (talk) 02:36, 28 April 2022 (UTC)

@Kelvinwop: this request was not filled properly, and usually would not be accepted without clarification (mainly, the reason). However, I notice your edits from some years ago and assume you'd like to continue them, so it is now Yes check.svg open. --Raidarr (talk) 11:49, 28 April 2022 (UTC)

capadnd.miraheze.org

Status:  Done

DayBed (talk) 05:41, 1 May 2022 (UTC) Special:Diff/247130

@DayBed: Yes check.svg open. Some rationale is needed (hence the reason field) - in this case, I relied on your past history there and references on the wiki itself. --Raidarr (talk) 11:50, 3 May 2022 (UTC)

sbs.miraheze.org

Status:  Not done
  • Username: 黑底屍 (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I would like to adopt this wiki, which I plan to use as a new themed site, and recruit assistant administrators to assist with activation management.

黑底屍 (talk) 20:12, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

reverseawfulmovies.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: MatthewThePrep (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I'd like to adopt this wiki so that it doesn't die out. It was abandoned by its founder (@IronclawFan:) and I wanted to be an admin on that wiki, but it never happened.

MatthewThePrep (talk) 21:14, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

@MatthewThePrep: Yes check.svg open. --Raidarr (talk) 11:59, 3 May 2022 (UTC)

oddkast.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: Oddypodfan (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I've been a fan of the podcast for years and would hate to see the history of the oddkast no longer exist.

Oddypodfan (talk) 22:23, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

@Oddypodfan: Yes check.svg open. --Raidarr (talk) 12:05, 3 May 2022 (UTC)

harrypotter.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: 小美粉粉 (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I love harry potter. Both wiki in Fandom and Miraheze, I love. I love the wiki series of Harry Potter very much. I've been a fan of the harry potter for years and would contribute there. Unfortunately the founder was globally locked and this wiki was inactive and closed. I'd like to adopt this wiki so that it doesn't die out. I also want to keep this wiki active and develop it. I want to be an admin and bureaucrat on that wiki too due to the only bureaucrat is lost and locked. Please reopen it and give me the admin and bureaucrat right. Thanks.

--小美粉粉 (Talk) (Contribs) (Sandbox) (My Wiki) (Global Contribs) 1004065811 bytes of data NOTE: Do not {{ping}} me! 14:22, 3 May 2022 (UTC)

@小美粉粉: necessarily pinged to deliver important details. Firstly, the wiki is Yes check.svg open. Secondly, if you would like administrator/bureaucrat rights (and the reasoning is sensible), please see this page for what is needed. Reopenings no longer grant advanced permissions by default I'm afraid. --Raidarr (talk) 11:36, 4 May 2022 (UTC)
@Raidarr: I don't want other to ping is I edit on the wikis without Echo extension (e.g. TheiPhoneWiki) and I'm accustomed to forbid that because I closed this notice. Also, Fandom’s notification system has no ping notice feature. I read that I confirmed it has no activity, no active bureaucrats and no policies and it is public. I want to have admin and bcrat (bureaucrat) right. I am intersted to become a maintainer because I also edited on Chinese and Japanese Harry Potter Wikis in Fandom. I watched movies and read books about Harry Potter. --小美粉粉 (Talk) (Contribs) (Sandbox) (My Wiki) (Global Contribs) 1004065811 bytes of data NOTE: Do not {{ping}} me! 13:30, 4 May 2022 (UTC)
Very well, I can see the rationale. In any case I'm afraid the local election process remains necessary even if the wiki is fundamentally dead, as a sort of 'if anyone has reason why this shouldn't happen state your peace' step especially as a newcomer to the wiki. That said if all is in order the election can be closed early, and I invite you to prompt me in 3-4 days after the start to see how it's going . --Raidarr (talk) 14:35, 4 May 2022 (UTC)
@Raidarr: Yes. A user adopted French Vocaloid Wiki in Fandom on 2019-11-12. She's amazing. I created and edited useful pages on that wiki, see this. Where should the permissions voting be held? I don't understand. --小美粉粉 (Talk) (Contribs) (Sandbox) (My Wiki) (Global Contribs) 1004065811 bytes of data NOTE: Do not {{ping}} me! 14:35, 6 May 2022 (UTC)
@小美粉粉: Thank you for the follow up; you can use the talk page of the main page as a place to make the request with a simple vote setup. It could be like one of our Meta:Requests for permissions entries with the reason(s) you should have admin/bureaucrat + a discussion section, noting any significant changes you wish to make in the wiki's scope if any. If you notify here once it's made I can add you a sitenotice. After four days, prompt me and I'll see where things are at (the process can be up to 7 days unless there's complications). --Raidarr (talk) 09:29, 9 May 2022 (UTC)

Status:  Done
  • Username: Ki2004 (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: This wiki was created by a friend of mine, so I would like to adopt this wiki so that it can continue to document content about my friend's server.

Ki2004 (talk) 19:10, 5 May 2022 (UTC)

@Ki2004: Yes check.svg Done. A local election (or the return of the founder/your friend) will be needed if you wish to have advanced rights on the wiki. Unfortunately we have no way to verify your connection with the founder. For the election process, any evidence of this/contributions in the meantime that expand on the topic of the wiki will help it work in your favor. --Raidarr (talk) 13:36, 10 May 2022 (UTC)

izanagi.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: Marionforge (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no):
