Request for adoption
Shortcut:
RfA

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.

rebelwisdom.miraheze.org

Status:    Done
  • Wiki: rebelwisdom.miraheze.org
  • Username: Voller (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: I would like to continue slowly building the content of this wiki and hopefully encourage other members of the community to contribute also. Unfortunately we have lost touch with the previous admin / bureaucrat, so this would be a good opportunity for somebody slightly more active to adopt the wiki. Thank you for your consideration.

  • Wiki: backrooms.miraheze.org

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no

I'm not going be importing anything, I'm starting the hundreds of levels from scratch. There's a basic introduction at thebackrooms.com. Sheep42 (talk) 23:11, 23 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Status:    Not done
@InternoPédia: Destruipédia does not exist. I think you meant "Destruipedia". However, this wiki is not closed. YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 02:46, 30 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It's not closed but the bureaucrats have abandoned it and I'm just editing here, if vandals come to attack this wiki, I won't be able to deal with them much. Can't I adopt or have already adopted this wiki? InternoPédia (talk) 03:28, 30 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
InternoPédia, Since it seems like this wiki has no active bureaucrats, I would recommend you hold a local election, taking care to take into account the local wiki's permissions elections policies. Assuming your wiki has no local permissions request policies or other election rules, you would follow global customs and conventions for such requests, which see you create an election page on that wiki, on a prominent page, stating the number and type of position(s) you're running for (i.e., administrator, bureaucrat), the name(s) of the candidate(s) running, how long the election shall run for (best practice for 5-7 calendar days), the minimum support ratio required for a successful election, and whether an election can be declared successful after the minimum timeframe if no one expresses a view (i.e., election by acclamation). Once your process has concluded (recommended to last for at least 5-7 calendar days), return to stewards' noticeboard and, in a new thread, state the wiki address, local location of the election, and a steward will assess your local election in absence of a local bureaucrat. Thanks. Ma͡gogre (talk) 07:45, 30 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
But how and where do I apply for this election? What should I do to get this election going?
InternoPédia (talk) 04:48, 5 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
InternoPédia, as I said above, you'll need to request bureaucratship (and/or adminship) on any prominent page like Community noticeboard or Project:Administrators' noticeboard on the wiki which you want to adopt (destruipedia in your case) and wait at least 5-6 calendar days and then leave a note for the Stewards on SN with thr link to the election page to gain the rights. If you don't get any votes, that is no problem but the actual need is only to hold a local election on the wiki (destruipedia). See this SN thread for example. --Magogre (talk) 07:03, 5 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
But does this election have to be created on some special page on Destruipedia like a Forum, MediaWiki, Module? I'm sorry, but I have never requested the adoption of a wiki and I don't know how to do it, if I would have to create a vote like "Do you agree to approve the user InternoPedia for the Destruipedia administrator ( In this case, you would vote for the alternatives yes and no)? "Would the vote have to be taken in a poll? Would I have to order from MediaWiki first?
InternoPédia (talk) 22:37, 5 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
InternoPédia, it is ok if you create the election in Destruipédia namespace. Yeah, you should create a vote in which you should say about your contributions to the wiki and how will the wiki benefit if you became the bureaucrat. I am not sure, what you meant by order from MediaWiki. But there is no use of external things. You should request the the bureaucratship on Destruipédia's community portal creating a new section for you request here. If you still don't get it, I'd recommend joining IRC or Discord to get help from users in real time. Thank you. --Magogre (talk) 05:55, 6 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
First of all, I would like to thank you for everything and also apologize for taking so long to answer, sometimes, I happen to be solving a lot and one of them is the adoption of Destruipedia. So I did a vote on the wiki I'm trying to adopt (Destroipedia) and I'll pass the link you see and talk to me because I would like to know if the special page in the form I edited is right and if something is missing or if I would even have to correct it this page, edit it or even create a new one, I'll give you its link here:
https://destruipedia.miraheze.org/wiki/Destruip%C3%A9dia_Discuss%C3%A3o:Request_for_InternP%C3%A9dia_to_the_bureaucrat_of_Destruipedia InternoPédia (talk) 02:31, 9 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Why did you speak english on the wiki? No need. Also, this wiki I already edited in it, and apparently, you will take it back to you. I hope you don't change the name. YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 14:38, 9 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Next, 7 days have passed since the creation of the election that will decide whether or not I will be an administrator of Destruipedia and yesterday I sent a request on the SN:
https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Stewards%27_noticeboard#My_request_to_the_bureaucrat_at_Destruipedia but I still haven't got an answer because no administrator has responded,I want to know what's going on because no one has responded yet? There were no votes for or against, but here in the comments @Pérola Maniaco supports my promotion to bureaucrat. I'm waiting for the answer.InternoPédia (talk) 22:26, 16 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
InternoPédia, the request looks good to me. After few days (notably 5-7 days) place a request on SN and a steward will access your request and grant you the rights, if there was no opposition. Magogre (talk) 14:57, 9 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Magogre: Yes, but I hope he doesn't change his name. It's okay for him to adopt, but the owner and the rollbacker keeps looking YellowFrogger (Talk Edits) 15:08, 9 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Eu já tentei adotar a Destruipédia porque eu, não queria ver esse projeto morrer, mesmo que eu seja um usuário banido infinitamente por lá por motivos particulares do antigo burocrata. Para mim, eu apoio que o InternoPédia vire Burocrata, por está bem interessado nesse Site. Uma pena eu não poder, votar a favor na sua votação por lá. English: I've already tried to adopt Destruipedia because I didn't want to see this project die, even though I'm an infinitely banned user there for the private reasons of the former bureaucrat. For me, I support InternoPédia becoming a bureaucrat, as it is very interested in this site. Too bad I can't vote in favor of your vote there.

fantastictoys.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: fantastictoys.miraheze.org
  • Username: TheAnimeLover (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: This wiki has been closed 2 months ago and no one wanted to adopt it since the creator left miraheze, I want to adopt it because I want to create more articles and this wiki has a lot of potential

TheAnimeLover (talk) 12:16, 17 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Mentioning DarkMatterMan4500 as the member who presided over the closure. Per the means of the wiki's closure, the wiki may be adopted normally or by simply by messaging a QP leader despite having been manually closed. Thus this should be able to be reopened for you perhaps without even requiring a Steward to engage, although these terms were set under the understanding the adopting user would receive "admincrat" rights as well - this would be DMM's discretion or would have to be done with a local election. For consistency I will ask you @TheAnimeLover: do you wish to also adopt the Upsetting Toys Wiki, as the second of a 'matching pair' for consistency? If you only have article ideas/see potential in the one though, it's not necessary. --Raidarr (talk) 16:32, 17 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Raidarr Thanks for the tag. And I think I could assess this re-opening of the wiki, but will not be part of the Qualitipedia Network, but will be close by. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 16:37, 17 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
just like the character reception wikis, the wiki should be reopened while at the same time it will be no longer part of the qualitypedias. TheAnimeLover (talk) 14:51, 18 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Naturally, there is no obligation to be part of QP. There's nothing on the front page or elsewhere to imply that anyway. I'm assuming by the response above that Upsetting Toys is not desired at this time, so no action is needed there. --Raidarr (talk) 14:56, 18 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@DarkMatterMan4500: how is this (reopening the wiki, primarily) coming along? --Raidarr (talk) Raidarr (talk) 23:28, 22 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'll reopen the wiki now. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 00:26, 23 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
X mark.svg Not done from a Steward perspective. The wiki is marked as private and the requesting user does not have read-rights per dormancy policy. Given above shows an active discussion between users with rights on the wiki, I will leave this to be resolved by said users rather than make an exception to policy.
