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! 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

senkan.miraheze.org

Status:    In progress

I'd like to adopt the wiki page Senkan, as the owner of the page has left it entirely unused and dormant 2 times now, and has no intentions of returning to it. It's a project me and my friends much enjoyed and we wish to continue it Stinky The Skunk (talk) 17:41, 27 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

WindowsViennaFish2010 (talk) 08:41, 4 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

WindowsViennaFish2010 As this wiki was manually closed by a local bureaucrat, ostensibly as part of an on-wiki or off-wiki discussion with other bureaucrats and/or the community, the prevailing Steward custom or practice of at least two other Stewards is that Stewards do not reopen manually closed wikis, so I'm closing this as X mark.svg not done. However, if this is an alternate account of a pre-existing account where you were either (a) a significant contributor or (b) a previous or current bureaucrat or sysop on this wiki and you can reply from that account that this account is your confirmed alternate account, I'm willing to reevaluate this request, particularly if this closure was not done in line with a fulsome discussion of all significant contributors to the wiki. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 14:49, 4 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Status:    On hold
  • Wiki: duovision.miraheze.org
  • Username: DreamWeaver7
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: I am a member of the community that started the wiki, but unfortunately it was abandoned. I would like to revive this wiki, contribute to it and share it to my community that is still very much active.

DreamWeaver7 This LGTM, as the wiki was not manually closed by a local bureaucrat, so I've Yes check.svg locally reopened in lieu of locally active bureaucrats. After several weeks, your contributions to the wiki will be assessed by Stewards, and the bureaucrat user group may be added to your account at that time. Thanks.

hypixel.miraheze.org

Status:    Not done
  • Wiki: hypixel.miraheze.org
  • Username: Ronjapatch
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): No
  • Reason: Wiki is inactive and no edits have been made to the Wiki itself, hence why I am requesting to adopt it.

Ronjapatch Thank you for your request. Unfortunately, this X mark.svg cannot be done as the wiki is not closed per Dormancy Policy. I'd instead you visit the local bureaucrat's user talk page, offer to contribute to the wiki, and request any rights you require (i.e., sysop, bureaucrat etc.) to help do that. If you don't receive a response within a week or so, you can hold a local election on the wiki, following these guidelines, then request a Steward assess your local election after a further calendar week. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 14:30, 6 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

mymelopedia.miraheze.org

Status:    On hold
  • Wiki: mymelopedia.miraheze.org
  • Username: Sophiebun
  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): NO
  • Reason: Soon after starting up work on the wiki, I suffered a hard drive failure, leaving me unable to really get started. Since recovering from it, attempts to access my existing account have been fruitless - as I was not aware that I had to enable password reset emails, and my password was lost as it was saved to my laptop's hard drive. I now wish and intend to go all in on this wiki now that I'm back in a position to do so. Thank you.

After several weeks, your contributions to the wiki will be assessed by Stewards, and the bureaucrat user group may be added to your account at that time. Thanks.
As an alternative to the above, you may wish to create a local election page somewhere on the wiki, following the guidelines in the linked page, and then after 5-7 calendar days, {{ping}} me here to assess your election. The process is usually procedurally much quicker than an adoption process. Dmehus (talk) 15:59, 9 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • Are you a bureaucrat? (yes/no): Yes
  • Reason: The old project it was used for fell through with everyone getting busy but know we're all available (hopefully for a while) again and I wanna try to remake the wiki again.

NeverthelesS (talk) 00:47, 10 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

NeverthelesS Unfortunately, this X mark.svg cannot be undertaken as the wiki database was dropped in here in this batch. Nevertheless, I've recreated your original wiki, selecting an appropriate category and purpose for your wiki, and requested an XML import be done from Reception123's delbackups on jobrunner3. Please follow along here. Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 05:51, 10 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Zocktersrat (talk) 14:46, 17 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Zocktersrat Unfortunately, this X mark.svg cannot be undertaken as the wiki is not closed per Dormancy Policy. What you can do, however, is hold a local election. 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.
