Request for adoption
Shortcut:

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! You must be a registered user to adopt a wiki (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.

Dmehus (talk) 13:40, 5 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
DreamWeaver7 Looking though your local contributions to this wiki since it was reopened, you have already made the single most editing contributions to the wiki in both number of edits and page byte size, I'm thus satisfied of your commitment level to continue contributing to the wiki and to serving as its custodian/caretaker, so this LGTM and is thus Yes check.svg done, with bureaucrat and sysop rights added to your account. As a helpful reminder, local wikis are run according locally developed guidelines, rules, and other practices developed by the consensus formed from local wikis' communities.

Thank you so much! My community will be thrilled to hear the news and after my classes end next week I will be able to add many more edits. I appreciate it! DreamWeaver7 (talk) 02:48, 16 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Status:    Done
  • Wiki: minecraftenchantments.miraheze.org
  • Username: QuestionLite2
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I was dumb and locked myself out of my account QuestionLite so I'm here with my second account to be able to make administrative changes to the wiki as well as editing after it died

QuestionLite2 (talk) 06:50, 24 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

QuestionLite2 By locked yourself out, do you mean you just lost your two-factor authentication device and can otherwise recover your access to your account as you have a confirmed linked e-mail address on file, or do you mean you've forgotten your password and have no e-mail address on file? Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 12:49, 24 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I've forgotten my password and have no e-mail address on file.
QuestionLite2 (talk) 19:08, 24 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
QuestionLite2 Okay, well, please let me know whether you wish to proceed with this adoption request, which will require you to contribute to the wiki with editing contributions over a couple weeks or so, or hold a local election, lasting at least five to seven calendar days and following these guidelines. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 23:23, 24 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
QuestionLite2 I've Yes check.svg locally reopened this wiki for you to either hold a local election, following these guidelines, or contribute to the wiki over the next couple of weeks. Depending on your contributions or the approach taken, this request may be closed as either superceded by a successful local election, a successful adoption request, or not done. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 17:38, 27 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, I'm editing it right as we speak. However, I'm unable to upload files as I get an error.
QuestionLite2 (talk) 19:58, 10 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
QuestionLite2 What error do you receive? Please paste it in a "Code box", enclosed in quotation marks as in that example. I can grant you temporary rights until the adoption request concludes, but users seem to have the needed upload rights. Dmehus (talk) 22:49, 10 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Could not open lock file for "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/5/55/Enchanted_Book.gif". Make sure your upload directory is configured correctly and your web server has permission to write to that directory. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Manual:$wgUploadDirectory for more information. Return to Main Page.

I think this might require a Phabricator task. Bukkit 16:15, 11 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
This should be fixed by Reception. Bukkit 16:41, 11 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Ah, great, thanks Bukkit and Reception123. So, QuestionLite2, continue editing the wiki, and I'll assess this in about a week. Dmehus (talk) 16:54, 11 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I realize this isn't the greatest time to make a request but could it be possible to import the a module like NavboxBuilder? It would allow me to better organize navboxes as most of my planning and organizing actually revolves around navbox creation.
QuestionLite2 (talk) 08:43, 14 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@QuestionLite2: From what wiki? Wikipedia? Minecraft Wikia? That's certainly possible, you'd just need to import all required templates and modules. For better help, I suggest you use our Discord or IRC where people will be able to help you in real time. Agent Isai Talk to me! 16:08, 14 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Fandom would be preferred I suppose, but Wikipedia's would also be alright. I'm not sure exactly how to import Lua modules and I don't believe Lua is enabled on the wiki even.
QuestionLite2 (talk) 21:46, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
QuestionLite2 Looking through local editing contributions, this LGTM and is thus Yes check.svg done, with bureaucrat and sysop rights added to your account. As a helpful reminder, local wikis are run according locally developed guidelines, rules, and other practices developed by the consensus formed from local wikis' communities. Finally, as a helpful note re: Content Policy and the Terms of Use, noting this edit, you should ensure you link to the source wiki in an edit summary to provide proper attribution. It's not too late to correct this, and can be done (for Miraheze wikis) using [[mh:subdomain:pagename|optional displayed text]], where subdomain represents subdomain.miraheze.org and pagename is self-explanatory. You can also link to other wikis using the prefix in the wiki's local interwiki table. If you need additional prefixes added, you can request any interwiki administrator or Steward add the prefix for you. Dmehus (talk) 22:12, 18 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Sperosdurell Though your local editing contributions are extremely minor and inconsequential in nature, you are already one of the wiki's more active contributors.

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I was a sporadic editor of this wiki before its closure, and I would like to revivify and expand it on a more regular basis.

Cosmophilus (talk) 20:21, 27 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Cosmophilus Though many of your local editing contributions are either somewhat or fairly minor in nature, you do have some page creations of at least a start class and are already one of the wiki's most active contributor. Perhaps most crucially, you have longevity, having edited this wiki for a year or more. As such, this LGTM and is thus Yes check.svg done, with bureaucrat and sysop rights added to your account.

One question, though, when you say you "let this slide for too long (oops)," do you mean to say you are Jamescoolcraft? If so, would you mind logging in from your Jamescoolcraft account and confirming this? Dmehus (talk) 20:14, 1 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus: Of course not I'm not Jamescoolcraft please check my IP with user checker rights. Best Regards Jiggyziz (talk) 02:01, 2 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Jiggyziz That's not necessary at all. The reason I asked the question is because I was confused by what you meant by you "let this slide for too long (oops)"? Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 02:03, 2 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Penarc1 Though this was just Yes check.svg locally reopened, looking through your existing local editing contributions, you are already the wiki's most active contributor, having edited it nearly since its inception. As such, this LGTM and is thus Yes check.svg done, with bureaucrat and sysop rights added to your account.

Penarc1 This has been Yes check.svg done; however, as you have a lot of unpatrolled edits from prior to your successful adoption request, you will not be able to patrol your own edits.

Status:    On hold
  • Wiki: coronavirus.miraheze.org
  • Username: Bukkit
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: The coronavirus wiki is very, very unused. I will use this to help educate users about COVID-19, Vaccines, and how to keep yourself safe from COVID.

Bukkit 19:42, 16 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I may also join Bukkit in staying around that wiki, if it is adopted. ~ Mazzaz (talk) 00:09, 17 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Mazzaz I'm not sure if you're interested in contributing to this wiki in a significant way, but in the past, we've had two users competing to adopt the same wiki. In such cases, the successful adoption would go to the user who has made the more and, crucially, more significant edits. So, you're more than welcome to contribute to this wiki at the same as Bukkit. Hope that helps. :) Dmehus (talk) 21:57, 18 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I don't want to be a bureaucrat there :P Above, I was referring to contributing there, if I got more time ~ Mazzaz (talk) 07:38, 19 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I heard it was shutting down so i wanted to adopt it so it would not be a ghost town

Bqi06 (talk) 20:25, 20 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Bqi06: Marking as X mark.svg Not done because it was manually closed by the wiki's administration. Per steward convention, wikis closed manually cannot be adopted. Agent Isai Talk to me! 20:32, 20 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Bqi06: @Agent Isai: If the community of that wiki wants it reopened, then it could likely be arranged. I'd suggest opening a discussion at the Stewards' noticeboard to that effect. — Arcversin (talk) 22:03, 20 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Arcversin: Indeed, if Bqi06 can show community consensus on whether the wiki should be reopened, then the wiki can be opened. However, upon further examination of the wiki, it does not appear likely that that will happen due to the many things that have happened there regarding the owner of that wiki. It seems most have fled so I doubt a consensus will be possible. Agent Isai Talk to me! 22:42, 20 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Agent Isai Unfortunately, this can't X mark.svg can't be done because the wiki is not closed in accordance with Dormancy Policy. Even if it were closed in accordance with Dormancy Policy, as this would mark a significant departure from this wiki's approved purpose and scope in that it would be completely repurposed as a backup wiki for another Club Penguin wiki you maintain, I'd be inclined only to reopen the wiki and require a community discussion with the wiki's community in order to make this change. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 21:12, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

bestepisodes.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: bestepisodes.miraheze.org
  • Username: Blubabluba9990
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: This wiki is close to being closed, and until I can get unblocked from Qualitipedia I can continue to work on the wiki. Also, all three of the admins on the wiki are globally locked.

Blubabluba9990 (talk) 17:38, 1 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Specifically, since this wiki has not been merged yet with Best Shows & Episodes Wiki, I can contribute to the wiki until I get unblocked on Qualitipedia. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 17:40, 1 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'm going to mark this as X mark.svg not done for a couple reasons, one of which is similar to the above request by Agent Isai. As you noted, the wiki's users are all globally locked, two of which were self-requested locks, if I'm remembering correctly, and one of which was a Terms of Use ban by Trust and Safety's predecessor, Site Reliability Engineering. That, though, is not one of the reasons for declining this request. For one thing, this wiki has been moribund since mid February 2021 and is slated to be marked for deletion in the next two weeks. With less than five content pages on this wiki, I do not see a compelling reason to depart somewhat from the Dormancy Policy established process in what feels like a bit of a hail Mary attempt to stave off deletion of a wiki which attracted no interest in nearly the entire time. If there's interest in this subdomain.miraheze.org, then you can either (a) request a wiki with a different subdomain, defining a clear purpose and scope for the wiki in accordance with Content Policy and then request on Phabricator to rename the wiki when this subdomain is available in few weeks or (b) wait a few weeks until the wiki's subdomain is available after the wiki's database is dropped. Finally, by your own admission, Best TV Shows and Episodes Wiki is in the process of being merged, so it's not clear why we should upend that local community process, at least not without discussing it with that wiki's local community)? Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 21:23, 2 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Actually, I was saying that Best Episodes Wiki was not merged and is not in the process of merging with Best Shows & Episodes Wiki. Best Episodes Wiki has not been discovered by the admins at Best Shows & Episodes Wiki and the former seems to be, like you said, abandoned and forgotten about. Additionally, I am blocked on Best Shows & Episodes Wiki for reasons discussed on Steward's noticeboard. And yes, two of the global locks were self-requested.
