Request for adoption

This page is for requesting to adopt a wiki (if you are not a bureaucrat).

If you are already a bureaucrat on the wiki simply go to Special:ManageWiki (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!
Please remember to:

  • Talk in a Calm, and a 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 am a devout Christian and want to revive and edit those wikis. Please let me do so. Thanks.

Danny Willson (talk) 08:02, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Christipedia is not a closed wiki, and therefore is not eligible for adoption. You are welcome to contribute. Cristianopedia has been reopened, and rights will be transferred if you actively maintain the wiki. -- Void Whispers 14:08, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Void Hi, I'm the founder of Cristianopedia wiki, due to different reasons I couldn't edit although I'm interested in continuing in the project, I'm going to be semi-active and I want to ask Can you give the permission of Bureaucrat and Administrator to Danny Willson? to keep the project alive. And I would like to keep my flags on the wiki. Cristianopedia (talk) 22:33, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

London

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: London
  • Username: Pkbwcgs
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: This is a private Wiki but still I would like to adopt this Wiki and write some new articles and do some improvements before making this a public wiki. Therefore, I would like adopt this Wiki and do some work to it.

Pkbwcgs (talk) 16:11, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

At the moment, because it is a private wiki, I can't see anything other than the main page. Once I receive member rights, I can start doing work on that Wiki and transform it. Pkbwcgs (talk) 16:12, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Any progress? Pkbwcgs (talk) 06:40, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
There is no precedent for adopting a private wiki, and arguably, there shouldn't. We don't want to even risk making private material public. -- Void Whispers 13:54, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Conworlds

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: Conworlds
  • Username: Pkbwcgs
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: Conworlds wiki closed wiki has 58,224 pages in total. It would be a shame if that many pages was lost and that wiki is deleted. I will actively contribute and I have looked through and there is interesting information in that wiki.

Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:17, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Also, on the left of the Conworlds Wiki, I would like the "chat", "discord chat" and "community" tabs removed. The intention once I get this wiki opened and back up and running is to remove all the bits relating to Fandom before starting work on it. I will use the Miraheze interface so I will remove links to Fandom. Once I get this Wiki, it is guaranteed to better than it was before. Pkbwcgs (talk) 18:38, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
Can be removed in MediaWiki:Sidebar :) Ucronistaw (talk) 18:45, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for the advice. Hopefully, this gets opened as soon as possible so that I can start working on it. Pkbwcgs (talk) 15:02, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
This wiki was an archive of the Conworlds Wiki on Fandom. The wiki is now an older version of https://altverse.miraheze.org. This wiki is not up for adoption and I really should apply for dormancy as it really is read only. Miraheze Logo.svg CnocBride | Talk | Contribs 16:34, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
@CnocBride: What? The message that it can be adopted is misleading. There are 58,224 pages on the wiki so it needs to be adopted or the content is going to be lost. Maybe, I can run the Wiki in a different way? So, am I not allowed to adopt this Wiki? Pkbwcgs (talk) 17:22, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
I have removed the inactivity notice. I don't want the wiki ran in any different way, it is purely an archive of pages of Conworld. Miraheze Logo.svg CnocBride | Talk | Contribs 20:59, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

Wiki reopened, rights will be transferred in a week if you actively contribute. Also, would you mind changing your signature? It adds very little to any discussion and is a bit unseemly. -- Void Whispers 21:33, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

P.S i don’t want the rights anymore. I’ll let the wiki dissolve eventually and soon Lineampedia will be the sucessor to Mikipedia. It will be a slow 6 months, lots of time to build Lineampedia.•• User:Fair0002 • China Sucks! Xi Jinping Is Filthy 14:03, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

The wiki is already open. You must actively contribute to the wiki during this week in order for a Steward to consider transfering rights. If you need anything admin related, please request it at Stewards' noticeboard. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:35, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

Opened the wikis. -- Void Whispers 17:48, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
@Void: Can you please delete all the pages I have listed here. I am clearing out SeedWiki and loads of ancient diaries mean nothing to me so I don't need anything I have listed at that link. After that, can you please import Template:Db from TemplateWiki at [1] and all the relevant modules that make this template work. Thanks. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:20, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
In progress now. Importing the template will have to wait, it seems like it has a lot of dependencies. -- Void Whispers 05:02, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
@Void: Thanks for deleting the pages I have listed. I have 13 edits to Seed wiki so I am ready to get rights on there. I will keep importing templates to that wiki and keep working on it. I will keep working on the other two wikis and let you know when I am ready. Thanks. Pkbwcgs (talk) 19:29, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

You do not have permission to delete this page, for the following reason:

This page has a large edit history, over 250 revisions. Deletion of such pages has been restricted to prevent accidental disruption of seed.

Please help out. Thanks. Pkbwcgs (talk) 10:38, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Alternate History

Status:    Done
  • Wiki: Alternate History <https://alternatehistory.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page>
  • Username: Sapphire Williams
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No.
  • Reason: I made my first request last summer because I wanted to write an alternative history on Miraheze, and even though the wiki was private the creator hadn't worked on the wiki for more than a year. I tried talking to him and on Wikia if he's ever gonna make the site available, but he as never responded back. Now since the wiki is closed, I would like to adopt this wiki and start developing it. It is still private since I can't access anything else other than the main page, but the founder and only bureaucrat has been inactive for a long time.

SapphireWilliams (talk pagecontributions) 23:04, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

Actually, put my request on hold for now, because I think JoshTheRoman is active on Wikia again and I want to ask him about the wiki before anything happens. SapphireWilliams (talk pagecontributions) 20:45, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Nevermind. He said that he'll give me the wiki if the admins from AltHist on Wikia doesn't want to claim it. SapphireWilliams (talk pagecontributions) 01:57, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
I got his permission to adopt his wiki. SapphireWilliams (talk pagecontributions) 02:13, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
Can you request that either the wiki here on Miraheze is changed to be public, or that JoshTheRoman makes a comment on a verified account that it is fine to make the wiki public? -- Void Whispers 17:31, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
I'll ask him on Discord but he seldom respond there. I'll let you know, but unfortunately I can't take screenshots on this computer. SapphireWilliams (talk pagecontributions) 00:05, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
He made it public again. SapphireWilliams (talk pagecontributions) 00:45, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
Okay, the wiki is also open already so as long as you contribute actively, a Steward should grant you the rights. Reception123 (talk) (C) 06:30, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
Alright. SapphireWilliams (talk pagecontributions) 20:09, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
