This page provides information on closed wikis and defines the process of their adoption.
A closed wiki is a wiki which has been closed:
- Automatically by the software after the inactivity of 60 consecutive days;
- By the local bureaucrats or those with the
managewikiright due to any reason; or
- By Stewards, a Trust and Safety team member or system administrators if the wiki has violated any of the global policies such as content policy, code of conduct, etc.
Presently, Miraheze hosts 8848 wikis and periodically closes inactive ones. Because Miraheze runs mainly on the donations, it has to close inoperative wikis or those forgotten by its users to save the resources used to host such wikis.
Closure due to inactivity
All wikis hosted on Miraheze are subject to global policies such as Dormancy policy which states that after the wiki falls inactive for 60 days, it will be closed and put up for adoption, see adoption of closed wikis below. An inactivity notice is shown on the wiki after it has been inactive for 45 days and fifteen days later, if no activity is seen, it is closed.
Adoption of closed wikis
On Miraheze, Adoption is the process by which a closed wiki is reopened following the request of a user interested in contributing to the wiki. Any user can request adoption of any closed wiki, except wikis which were closed manually by the local bureaucrats or local community, and those closed by Stewards due to content policy and code of conduct violations (which aren't eligible for adoption). Requests for adoption are made on the Requests for reopening wikis page.
Procedure of adoption
Any user, in good faith, can request the adoption of a closed wiki. A request must be made at Requests for reopening page where stewards handle adoption requests. The request will be put on hold for a week, a steward will evaluate the request after that and, if the wiki is eligible, it is reopened. To obtain bureaucrat and administrator rights, you need to make a local election that lasts at least one (1) week, if performed successfully, you will obtain the rights of bureaucrat and administrator on the wiki. If more than one user requests adoption of the same wiki, stewards may either ask the opinions of other stewards and global Miraheze functionaries to evaluate the request, or they may open the wiki to user contribution and then decide the request outcome based on those contributions.
Stages of a closed wiki
|Inactivity notice is placed on the wiki.
|Wiki is open at the stage, so adoption isn't possible.
|Wiki is open at this stage.
|Wiki is closed automatically.
|Adoption isn't available.
|Too new to be deleted unless there was zero activity in this time.
|The wiki will be made available for adoption.
|Deletion is only done if no one requests adoption until inactive day 194.
|The wiki is marked for deletion.
|The wiki becomes eligible for deletion.

- This includes the wikis where no edits or log actions have been performed for a period of 60 or more days. These wikis are also called as dormant wikis.
- However the wikis which were never used (i.e., have no activity on Special:RecentChanges, excluding user renaming and user merge notices) are eligible for deletion only after 60 days of inactivity.
