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.

wikilexicon.miraheze.org

Status:  Done
  • Username: 1108-Kiju (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no

It seems a bit weird to reopen a wiki just for a single article to be written. Have you tried contacting a bureaucrat first? Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:32, 29 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Reception123, I have contacted bureaucrat via Discord, but he too seems to be busy and has not responded.--1108-Kiju/▶talk 08:12, 29 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@1108-Kiju: Yes check.svg Done, as requested. Please edit the wiki ASAP or it will be automatically re-closed, thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 05:38, 7 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Agent Isai: Thank you for re-opening this site.--1108-Kiju/▶talk 10:00, 7 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

onemorewiki.miraheze.org

Status:  Not done
  • Username: GVGuide (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no):
  • Reason: I want to be able to see the documentation and help that both employees and users helped to make, and if possible not have to ask the help desk for every one of my questions. I want to add help myself too.

GVGuide (talk) 14:06, 26 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

If you want to be able to see the documentation, why do you need the wiki to be open? Closed wikis are readable. Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:32, 29 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no):
  • Reason: I´m the only editor here

Penarc1 (talk) 17:17, 26 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I understand, though what do you plan on doing with the reopened wiki? Do you plan on regularly editing it? Reception123 (talk) (C) 05:32, 29 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

catalinshops.miraheze.org

Status:  Cannot be undertaken
  • Username: Nowodex (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO
  • Reason: I Love That Wiki!

Nowodex (talk) 00:15, 31 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Pictogram voting comment.svg Non-steward comment: I assume this request is meant for catalinshops.miraheze.org. Although I can confirm that the wiki was indeed created via Special:RequestWikiQueue, when I visited that URL, it led to a 404 page, and no archives appear to exist. Therefore, the database for this wiki has likely been dropped. If you would like to revive it, please request a new wiki here. Tali64³ (talk) 15:19, 3 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]
This wiki no longer exists so this X mark.svg cannot be undertaken. If the wiki was public, an archive of it may be available on archive.org. Apologies. Agent Isai Talk to me! 05:35, 7 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Username: HeavenSmile (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I want to improve this wiki since it has a share of decent articles and this wiki can be better, I am not an administator on that wiki but I want to become one.

HeavenSmile (talk) 06:13, 10 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@HeavenSmile: The wiki was closed following a local discussion about closing the wiki and we cannot override that. Sorry. Agent Isai Talk to me! 07:13, 10 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]
But it will be lost to time once the 6 months pass. Nidoking (talk) 12:21, 12 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]
This raises an interesting question, since the community that made the decision (Qualitipedia) is undergoing a discussion to close down. If the body that made the decision no longer exists, can the decision be overruled? Tali64³ (talk) 18:01, 12 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]
No because the community at the time rightfully closed it down. Even if that community dissolves, the ruling still stands. Agent Isai Talk to me! 23:06, 12 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Nidoking: and @Tali64³: I don't think it should given that the wiki, closed or not, is supposed to be Qualitipedia's, however, it would be good if a Qualitipedia bureaucrat were to reopen the wiki, especially considering some Qualitipedia wikis might start hosting independently.

l2x9.miraheze.org

Status:  In progress
  • Username: PK2 Stimpy (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: Hello, I think the wiki should be reopened because it's the actual history of the server l2x9, and also, I would like to add more history since it's outdated. So, please, can the wiki be reopened and not deleted? I would be very thankful!
PK2 Stimpy (talk) 15:14, 10 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

wretchedyoutubevideos.miraheze.org

Status:  Not done

Please discuss this with the bureaucrat and clarify this. If you cannot reach an agreement, please make a thread on the Stewards' noticeboard. Agent Isai Talk to me! 23:08, 12 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I do want to rottenwebsites wiki to be reopened because its actually useful to know what websites should be avoided — Preceding unsigned comment added by Robin3112 (talkcontribs) at 16:26, 13 September 2022 (UTC) added by ZeusDeeGoose[reply]

@Robin3112: This is completely unrelated to this request. Also, quoting the top of the page, "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." ZeusDeeGoose (talk) 19:53, 13 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Status:  Not done
  • Username: HeavenSmile (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I want to revive this wiki and make more articles, I actually like this wiki and it can be better.
HeavenSmile (talk) 03:25, 16 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]
This wiki was closed by a local bureaucrat and cannot be reopened. Please contact them instead. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:27, 16 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

roblox.miraheze.org

Status:  Not done
  • Username(s): JrStudios and Inka Dinka Doo
  • Are you a bureaucrat: No.
  • Reason: I need to go on ahead and move Garbage and Perfection Roblox games here. As listed in the request to open a new wiki, it will give a detailed, yet simple, guide to Roblox Culture, and if you should follow a person, play a game, or watch specific Roblox YouTube content, based on ratings by users. Admins will have the job of verifying reviews.

There will be a massive disclaimer on the fact that this wiki is mainly opinion. However, there will be data on this. The reason why this is created is due to the fact that Duchess closed the original 2 "Reception Wikis" because of Qualitipedia being on the urge of collapse. Thanks, jrStudios (talk) 01:46, 17 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

X mark.svg Not done as you cannot change the scope of a wiki dramatically and this would be completely changing the scope of a wiki. Additionally, per policy, you can't form a wiki without their consent. Thank you for your understanding. Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:50, 17 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

  • Username(s): Infernity
  • Are you a bureaucrat: No
  • Reason: I would like to continue the Roblox Wiki in a similar way to how it is currently ran, with minor additions [i.e. more in depth and not just links and/or empty pages or "claimed" pages with no info]. Infernity (talk) 20:25, 23 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]
