This page is for requesting to 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 adopted! If the wiki was manually closed, it cannot not be adopted.

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 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.

con.miraheze.org

Status:    In progress
  • Wiki: con.miraheze.org
  • Username: Pogdog
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: The Wiki is out of date and no longer maintained, which is a shame as the community is still growing. As a long time member of the community, I would love to help contribute to keeping it alive. Thank you for your consideration.

I am glad to see your interest in this wiki however I see you made 0 edits made any edits. I would suggest editing the wiki for a week then reapplying for adoption (: --Cocopuff2018 (talk) 03:27, 4 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Cocopuff2018: Please note that the wiki is closed and that, as a result, Pogdog cannot edit. Accordingly, I have marked it In Progress again. Thank you! Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:35, 4 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
ah sorry did not see that @Agent Isai thanks for the heads up! Cocopuff2018 (talk) 03:47, 4 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

abhidcruez.miraheze.org

Status:    In progress
  • Wiki: abhidcruez.miraheze.org
  • Username: Tali64³
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I stumbled upon this wiki through WikiDiscover, and it seems like a neat idea. I want to continue it.

Tali64³ (talk) 23:38, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Tali64³: Hi there, I'm confused on why you'd like to adopt this wiki. This wiki seems to have been made for self-promotion and would in fact be in violation of our Content Policy as it has only one article which is self-promotory. If you wish to request a wiki yourself, you may do so here. Thank you. Agent Isai Talk to me! 23:41, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Well, I think that it could be repurposed as a wiki about people. The name would have to be changed, of course, but I think it could work. Also, it would save a little bit of time over requesting a new wiki. Tali64³ (talk) 23:44, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Actually, the wiki could be repurposed to any topic, on second thought. Tali64³ (talk) 23:45, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Tali64³: Unfortunately, wikis cannot be used for a purpose against their initial request purpose. This wiki's request reason was "I am a blogger" and the wiki cannot be used for anything other than that. Plus, adoption actually takes longer than creating a wiki. If you want, you could request a wiki and I (or another wiki creator) can approve it (provided it follows the Content Policy). Thanks. Agent Isai Talk to me! 23:53, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Actually, I think requesting a new wiki would be easier and quicker. With a clear scope you're almost certain to get it, and the name change for the purpose you'd want is easy. Not to mention you would lose no work with the change. --Raidarr (talk) 12:39, 11 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Why do you feel the need to ripoff a wiki from another site? I personally don't think that's fair. I'm not a steward or a manager or anything but if you think the FANDOM version has bad qualities, then you should contact the admins about improving the wiki. Musicismylife (talk) 07:31, 17 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
There are several wikis on Miraheze that exist because users don't care for the Fandom version, especially given Fandom's corporate background and decisions. I don't think it's very fair to blast him on that count. --Raidarr (talk) 15:23, 17 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Raidarr: That doesn't make it ok. Musicismylife (talk) 20:17, 17 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Status:    In progress
  • Wiki: giantmonsters.miraheze.org
  • Username: Kaiju No. 14
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): Not anymore
  • Reason: I am just an active and frequent editor and I would like to restore the site I was an admin in the past but my old account on my old computer is gone. a friend of mine Allosaurus the other admin is also gone soo its just me but there are a lot of fans of the site and it's an unofficial sub wiki for the VERY POPULAR SITE WIKIZILLA please guys I'm begging you, thanks.

marveloustvshowepisodeswiki.miraheze.org

Status:    In progress
  • Wiki: marveloustvshowepisodeswiki.miraheze.org
  • Username: Blubabluba9990
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: Since this wiki is abandoned and has no content and my previous adoption request failed, I figured I would adopt this wiki since it has a similar concept, it was requested a while ago by a user who is not globally locked and since there is no content, it is literally a blank slate. Also since I will not be unblocked on the Reception Wikis anytime soon it is a good replacement for Best Shows & Episodes Wiki. Pretty much the same reason as my previous request for adoption for Best Episodes Wiki.

Blubabluba9990 (talk) 20:10, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I'm pretty confident you're not allowed to use a different wiki just because you were blocked on the main wiki... Musicismylife (talk) 20:59, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
If the content distinguishes itself, there isn't a 'main wiki' for the purposes of adoption. But making that distinction would probably be best for the figures reviewing the request. --Raidarr (talk) 03:13, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I may even withdraw this soon now that I messaged DarkMatterMan4500 about unblocking me. Thought that is not set in stone. Blubabluba9990 (talk) 22:14, 22 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

myworldhistoric.miraheze.org

Status:    In progress
  • Wiki: myworldhistoric.miraheze.org
  • Username: Meme2001C (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No, but a sysop/wiki owner
  • Reason: It's for my own history in my imagination, and since I want the site to be part of me and my fictional locations, TV shows, characters and even more. Thank you for your advice on Miraheze, and I wanted the site to be activated, but that's ok.

umga.miraheze.org

Status:    In progress
  • Wiki: umga.miraheze.org
  • Username: John Kent (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO
  • Reason: The old owner, Chara, has ignored requests for me to assume ownership, and I am the owner of the UMGA discord server. This server is endorsed by founder SmilesForMiles#6969, and I am elizabeth maria kent#9909. The reason I am requesting this now of all times is because I plan to edit it to add the new iteration of the server, and no known bureaucrats are responding.

Status:    In progress
  • Wiki: 5b5t.miraheze.org
  • Username: Kevenson (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I would like to continue this wiki as I am an active member of the Minecraft server that the wiki is dedicated to.

durhamhep.miraheze.org

Status:    Locally handled
  • Wiki: durhamhep.miraheze.org
  • Username: Tin2019 (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I am tasked with running this page, but we only use it during term time. Unfortunately summer vacation caused the page to close.

Tin2019 (talk) 13:09, 6 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hey Tin2019; I see this was recently taken care of, but you may want to take a look at this page (exceptions) for a way to make sure it won't be automatically closed again if you think the wiki is eligible. With a brief glance I think it has a shot. Sorry for the wait here. --Raidarr (talk) 17:09, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

alchemystars.miraheze.org

Status:    In progress
  • Wiki: alchemystars.miraheze.org
  • Username: Arusuryuka (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I have request alchemystars wiki at miraheze main page. But, my request has been declined because that wiki already created. So, I visit that wiki. While visiting that wiki, the wiki was closed and cannot anything to do there and then need adoption. After seeing that notice, I request adoption this wiki because I want to mirror and translate the content from Alchemy Stars JP. Thank you.

oddkast.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: oddkast.miraheze.org
  • Username: Medic7 (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: The Owner of the Wiki is not active and the Wiki needs numerous changes, some of which the only the owner has the permission to do. I plan to actively update the Wiki as well as bring more attention to it making it more useful.

Medic7 (talk) 16:19, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hey there. Unfortunately per the Dormancy Policy, adoption is not possible unless the wiki is outright closed and impossible to edit. The wiki is inactive, which means you can edit it still. The standard here is to hold a local election instead to allow anyone including previous contributors or the old owner to comment. How that election is set up is pretty much up to you (and chances are nobody's really going to comment anyway), let me know if you'd like a hand since I know this is a bit of red tape. You can also wait the 15 days for it to close so it can be adopted. Hope it helps. --Raidarr (talk) 16:50, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
