ficreation.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: ficreation.miraheze.org
  • Username: Bqi06
  • 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)

@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)
@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)
@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)

clubpenguin.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done

Agent Isai Talk to me! 01:14, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

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)

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)

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)
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)
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.

  • Username: Pérola Maniaco
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: Eu desejo adotar essa Wiki. E também se possivel, solicito o meu desbanimento naquela Wiki, aplicado pelo JPLSilva que, aplicou um banimento em mim sem uma justificativa plausivo e com o meu histórico sem nenhum tipo de vandalismo nesse Site. // English: I want to adopt this Wiki . And also if possible, I request my unban on that Wiki, applied by JPLSilva who, applied a ban on me without a plausible justification and with my history without any type of vandalism on this Site.

Pérola Maniaco (talk) 02:31, 4 August 2021 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done @Pérola Maniaco: This wiki is currently not eligible for adoption as it is only marked as inactive. Please wait another 15 days and it will be marked as closed and eligible for adoption. Thank you! Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:57, 4 August 2021 (UTC)

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: wretchedyoutubevideos.miraheze.org
  • Username: Itsaclownslife
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: The reason is that there is so many bad videos and some really bad you tubers who have very bad reputation that needs to go on here.

Itsaclownslife (talk) 13:06, 4 August 2021 (UTC)

Itsaclownslife I CLOSED that wiki 2 months ago. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 13:09, 4 August 2021 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done @Itsaclownslife: As noted by DarkMatterMan4500, this wiki was closed by him manually. Per steward convention, this decision will not be overridden and this adoption cannot go through. Sorry for the inconvenience. Agent Isai Talk to me! 14:26, 4 August 2021 (UTC)

crummyscratchers.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: crummyscratchers.miraheze.org
  • Username: CircleyverseFaneggdog
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: The now-closed Crummy Scratchers Wiki, which is not a place that is made to gossip and talk bad about Scratchers. It is a place to help Scratchers improve. That's why Crummy Scratchers Wiki should come back.

CircleyverseFaneggdog (talk) 15:36, 10 August 2021 (UTC)

@CircleyverseFaneggdog: Because this wiki was closed and deleted, you'll need to request this wiki again and ask for a sysadmin to import the old wikis contents again. As a result, this X mark.svg cannot be undertaken. Agent Isai Talk to me! 20:25, 10 August 2021 (UTC)
Also, I know this adoption request is kind of old, but this doesn't sound very constructive. I understand this is supposed to be a reception wiki, but "gossiping and talking bad" about scratchers is not what reception wikis are supposed to be. Plus, gossiping is outright a horrible thing.

WindowsViennaFish2010 (talk) 05:48, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

@WindowsViennaFish2010: X mark.svg Not done because the wiki isn't closed. You can ask local bureaucrats for admin rights if you'd like to help better the wiki. Agent Isai Talk to me! 06:03, 12 August 2021 (UTC)
Okay. WindowsViennaFish2010 (talk) 06:08, 12 August 2021 (UTC)
The single local admin has no contributions noted since 2019 and I can't even get a CentralAuth query on him. In this case, you can create a local election page declaring your intention to become a new B-crat/Admin, letting it run for a while so other contributors may support, oppose or let it happen and bringing the results to a Steward. There seems to be no point in attempting contact given the state of the admin/bcrat list on the wiki. Note if you do this, you should make contact with anyone who has been editing recently so they for sure can have a say, such as Tali64³ and DarkMatterMan4500 for legitimacy. --Raidarr (talk) 12:29, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

  • Reason: I am just active editor. I am requesting to activate on this site.

Dot (talk) 16:05, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

Dot X mark.svg Not done as the wiki is not closed per Dormancy Policy. You can, however, request any permissions you required locally. If bureaucrats are not active within a reasonable period of time (generally, a few weeks or more), you can attend stewards' noticeboard and request a steward's assistance. Thank you.

HubieXMarinaFanGirl (span style="color: black">talk) 20:34, 14 August 2021 (UTC)

That's not going to be re-opened, and plus it's private, making this adoption request pretty pointless. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 20:37, 14 August 2021 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done per above comments. If the wiki is manually closed, it is not eligible for adoption. Additionally, it's also private, making it double-unadoptable. Agent Isai Talk to me! 20:51, 14 August 2021 (UTC)

Westpeakserver (talk) 01:59, 22 August 2021 (UTC)

@Westpeakserver: X mark.svg Not done as 1) you didn't provide a reasoning for this request 2) this wiki was manually closed by its local bureaucrats, thus making it ineligible for adoption. The local bureaucrats have also made it clear that they will not reopen the wiki. Sorry for the inconvenience. Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:08, 22 August 2021 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done, as you are already bureaucrat on this wiki, so can grant your user account rights locally, as you were able to login with your original account within the past hour. Dmehus (talk) 00:15, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
But I can't access my username on easypedia to give rights. Sperosdurell (talk) 00:22, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
What do you mean? You're logged in on that account, so you should be able to. :) Dmehus (talk) 00:32, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
It wont log me over I'm not lying! Sperosdurell (talk) 00:36, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
I'm ok on meta but easypedia I'm locked out. Sperosdurell (talk) 00:41, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
I don't think you're being in any way intentionally deceptive. Rather, I think part of the problem here is a cookie issue. Please go here and logout completely. Once that's done, delete all cookies for *.miraheze.org and any wikis with custom domains, then go here, login with your new account and CentralAuth should auto-sign you in. To save you having to first login with your other account, I will grant rights locally for you. Dmehus (talk) 00:44, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Rights added to your now confirmed alternate account, per your request. Dmehus (talk) 00:49, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
It worked!!! Much appreciated. Sperosdurell (talk) 01:18, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
Great, and no problem. :) Dmehus (talk) 02:12, 23 August 2021 (UTC)

chromeball.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: chromeball.miraheze.org
  • Username: SchizoACC (CentralAuth)
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): no
  • Reason: This wiki is inactive, the admin has abandoned it and not made a single edit and I'm the only editor there. I need to adopt this wiki so I can complete my revamp plan. I also contacted all the old users of former Chromeball wiki on Fandom(It was closed by Fandom). I believe this is a fresh start for a wiki that has the potential to surpass its old Fandom-version. PercyUK also said that the wiki needs a bureaucrat with access to enable services, and he recommended me to apply for adoption.

Here is what PercyUK told me: https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Community_noticeboard#Infobox_template_glitch
SchizoACC (talk) 12:33, 6 September 2021 (UTC)

@SchizoACC: X mark.svg Cannot be undertaken because the wiki isn't closed for inactivity. You can only adopt a wiki if it's been closed automatically for inactivity. I'd suggest you contact the bureaucrat and leave them a message (preferably here on Meta) and see if they grant you bureaucrat. Agent Isai Talk to me! 02:06, 7 September 2021 (UTC)
Is it true that the wiki will be closed after 60 days of inactivity? SchizoACC (talk) 02:51, 7 September 2021 (UTC)
@SchizoACC: That is true, yes. Please read Dormancy Policy for more information. Agent Isai Talk to me! 03:13, 7 September 2021 (UTC)
