Request to reopen a wiki

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.

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I want to keep this wiki active and develop it.

@LisafBia: Yes check.svg open. --Raidarr (talk) 12:49, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
I want to be a bureaucrat. LisafBia (talk) 10:51, 1 May 2022 (UTC)
@LisafBia: I believe a local election is needed to be held on your adopted wiki for being a bureaucrat even there is no signs of activity on the wiki. After a successful local election (there is consensus to promote you being an bureaucrat), you can request at Stewards' noticeboard accordingly. Please post here with replies to let me/other users to know if you have any questions.--Matttest (talk) 08:28, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

@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)

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.

  • 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)

  • 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)

  • 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: 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)

Status:  Done
  • Username: Marionforge (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no):
  • Reason: There are many Izanagi Online player using this wiki. I want to keep this up and avoid being deleted as it's the only source of information for this game. I will commit myself in this wiki.

Marionforge (talk) 09:39, 8 May 2022 (UTC)

@Marionforge: Yes check.svg open. --Raidarr (talk) 13:42, 10 May 2022 (UTC)

  • Username: Wowcomics (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason:제발 복원해주세요

Wowcomics (talk) 11:27, 12 May 2022 (UTC)

@Wowcomics: while I'm not too picky about reasons, I'm afraid there is no reason here. The wiki has almost nothing on it and the wiki request itself was rather vague. Could you offer a little more about what you wish to do with this wiki?
Machine translation, if helpful: 나는 이유에 대해 까다롭지 않지만 여기에는 이유가 없습니다. 위키에는 거의 아무것도 없고 위키 요청 자체가 다소 모호했습니다. 이 위키로 무엇을 하고 싶은지 좀 더 말씀해 주시겠습니까? --Raidarr (talk) 12:11, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
Going to mark this as X mark.svg Not done due to no reply. --Raidarr (talk) 18:43, 25 May 2022 (UTC)

  • Username: DarkMatterMan4500 (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I can't let this wiki fade into obscurity. My intention is to revive this wiki before it fades into obscurity. I didn't even realize that it actually existed at the time.

Isjaki (talk) 19:01, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

@Isjaki: Since you are a bureaucrat on this wiki, you can reopen the wiki by yourself. Simply go to here and uncheck the closed box. Let us know when you are done or if you have encountered any problems in this process, thanks. --Matttest (talk) 23:27, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
