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.

  • Username: Danny Willson
  • 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)

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: There are more than 1,000 pages on that Wiki and I don't want the content to be lost. I would like to take this Wiki and continue to add to it.

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)

Mikipedia

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: Mikipedia

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

•• User:Fair0002 • China Sucks! Xi Jinping Is Filthy 12:52, 9 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)
A bit racist? •• User:Fair0002 • China Sucks! Xi Jinping Is Filthy 03:01, 10 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)
