Adopt a wiki!

If you edit on a wiki that has no active admins, it can be frustrating when you need to do something on the wiki that requires admin rights. With our new wiki adoption system, you can put in a request to adopt the wiki and become the new steward on the wiki, as long as you meet the criteria for adoption.

The criteria

Wiki criteria

You must be the only active user on the wiki.
If there is more than one active user on the wiki, you must discuss the adoption and who gets user rights with the other user(s) and link to the discussion.

There must have been no active users making edits for the past 30 days.

Note: Spambots and staff deleting spambot edits are exempt from these rules.

User criteria

The adopting user must not have adopted a wiki in the last 30 days.

The adopting user must have made at least 100 constructive mainspace edits.

The adopting user must have shown an obvious interest in the wiki’s topic.

Adopting a wiki

If you are interested in adopting a wiki, you need to fill in the details on our wiki adoption page, filling in all the required details listed on the page.

Even if you and the wiki match the criteria, it does not mean that you will be guaranteed to adopt the wiki. Staff will always have the final say on whether you can adopt the wiki or not.
