ShoutWiki Hub:Wiki Adoptions
If a wiki has no active stewards, admins or bureaucrats, we will give you the option to adopt the wiki. Adoption will grant the adopting user steward and admin rights on the wiki.
- 1 Criteria for adoption
- 2 Adopting a wiki
- 3 Adoption requests
Criteria for adoption
- 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.
- 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
To adopt a wiki, simply fill out the below details, formatting it in the same way:
Name of wiki
- Link to wiki: (Format like this: [[s:w:wiki subdomain|Name of the wiki]])
- Username on wiki:
- Link to your contributions page:
- Reason for adoption: ~~~~
ShoutWiki staff have the final decision over who adopts a wiki. Even if both the wiki and the user fulfill all the criteria listed above, ShoutWiki staff can refuse to give out user rights to the user at the staff member's discretion. If you fill in the adoption details incorrectly, ShoutWiki staff can refuse you any user rights.
- Premium. I wanna adopt this because there is no interest in the community of encyclopedists --Penarc (talk) 15:21, 19 October 2013 (UTC)
- I would like to adopt Omniverse Wiki. It forked from Wikia last August and has since been neglected and left to rot. --Golden Sweetie Belle (talk) 22:24, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Off Topic Spinoffs
- Link to wiki: Off Topic Spinoffs
- Username on wiki: Rtcity
- Link to your contributions page: Here.
- Reason for adoption: even though the off topic spinoffs community already has a wiki at pokemonnation.shoutwiki, our wiki has always historically been hosted at offtopicspinoffs, and the only reason it has moved to pokemonnation is because the admin of offtopicspinoffs went rogue a long time ago, forcing us to move. now that he is gone from offtopicspinoffs, and the place is abandoned, i'd like to adopt the place and fix it back up into our main wiki

- Username on wiki: --miki--
- Link to your contributions page: s:w:junat:Special:Contributions/--miki--
- Reason for adoption: The founder of wiki has quit, and the steward rights should be moved to me. The other admin has agreed to this. --miki-- (talk) 15:41, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
- Link to wiki: BZPB Wiki
- Username on wiki: Kon
- Link to your contributions page: s:w:bzpb:Special:Contributions/Kon
- Reason for adoption: The founder of the wiki is inactive; his last edit was eight months ago. Because we still talk on a regular basis, I have received his permission to take over the wiki. -Kon (talk) 08:53, 3 August 2016 (UTC)
- Link to wiki: s:w:awa
- Username on wiki: Rock-O-Jello
- Link to your contributions page: s:w:awa/wiki/Special:Contributions/Rock-O-Jello
- Reason for adoption: All bureaucrats are inactive and Cienca All Poder is the only remaining admin and the wiki needs a major cleanup. Jello chitchat! 19:19, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
Webkinz Picture Guide
- Link to wiki: Webkinz Picture Guide
- Username on wiki: Loopy
- Link to your contributions page: s:w:webkinzpictureguide:Special:Contributions/Loopy
- Reason for adoption: The founder of this wiki hasn't made any contributions since July 2017 []. Aside from myself, the only active user of the wiki is DisneyPrincess, and she has said it's okay for me to adopt the wiki, as seen here: s:w:webkinzpictureguide:User_talk:Loopy I have shown the most interest in the wiki and have made the most wiki edits by far. In regards to the criteria, I have never adopted a wiki, and I've made 13,000 constructive edits. Please consider granting me ownership of this wiki so I can combat the horrible spam problem I am having. Thanks! :) s:w:webkinzpictureguide:User_talk:Loopy Loopy (talk) 17:29, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
- Not Done: You've already been made an admin and bureaucrat by local administrators. --Lewis Cawte (talk) 20:14, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
- Link to wiki: Nintendogs Wiki
- Username on wiki: DreamIsland
- Link to your contributions page: I haven't contributed
- Reason for adoption: The Shoutwiki Nintendogs Wiki was not made by any staff or former staff of the Nintendogs Wikia. And was made when the Nintendogs Wikia was still in rough condition with a lot of vandalisim because there were no active admins. The Nintendogs Wikia currently has 3 active staff. Me, SodaDog and CosmicSour. I have attempted to do a Nintendogs Wiki on Miraheze... Didn't felt right for me. I tried doing one on Referata. Their servers were so slow... Back on the Nintendogs Wikia. I'm not happy with all of the BS decisions Fandom has made. 2015 was the start of the "featured articles". Never saw anyone liking it. I remembered that Lifestyle wikis always had "Parenting Tricks". Now in 2019. Guess what? It's only articles about ethier Gaming, Movies or TV shows. So now i'm stuck on ethier Miraheze (Inconvient) or Wikia/Fandom... The ShoutWiki Nintendogs Wiki was last edited by THAX-39 in 2016
- Denied: The requirements specifically state the minimum number of contributions you must have made to request adoption. --Lewis Cawte (talk) 20:23, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

- Username on wiki: Vlad26t
- Link to your contributions page: s:w:wikisfera:Special:Contributions/Vlad26t
- Reason for adoption: The founder of this wiki hasn't made any contributions since February 2018 - s:w:wikisfera:Special:Contributions/Самогонкин. I have shown the most interest in the wiki, and I have made a lot of constructive edits. I'm the only active user on the wiki. Vlad26t (talk) 12:25, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
- Link to wiki: Frickipedia
- Username on wiki: Awkr
- Link to your contributions page: Here.
- Reason for adoption: There has been very sporadic activity on the wiki (vandalism aside) in the past few years, and most of the few pages on there (including the main page) are empty. The admin of this wiki s:w:frickipedia:Special:Contributions/Hammer55 was last active on 19 June 2015. I've made an effort during the past month to edit the wiki, as I believe it could become worthwhile one day. ~Awkr —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Awkr (talk • contribs) 18:08, 3 October 2019 (UTC).
