I'm trying to clean up the Tiresome Wikis Wiki, which has been overrun with vandals. In particular, there is a user called Rick Astley who keeps posting the lyrics to "Never Gonna Give You Up" on pages and even creating new pages (recently, with titles targeted towards me). I keep undoing this user's edits, but within minutes, they're back, with more edits made in that time. I need help cleaning up that wiki. Tali64^2 (talk) 17:13, 6 December 2021 (UTC)

The administrators of that wiki would be the ones to ask: BenPlenty, Bray, and Frigg. --Saftzie (talk) 19:57, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
They have been inactive for some time now, so cleaning up the wiki falls onto the users of the wiki. The problem is that most of the users of that wiki only vandalize pages. That's why I need users of this wiki to help me clean up that wiki and help re-educate the vandals into useful contributors. Tali64^2 (talk) 14:35, 7 December 2021 (UTC)
If the admins are inactive, then perhaps you can adopt the wiki. --Saftzie (talk) 22:17, 7 December 2021 (UTC)
There are other users who edit the wiki, but I'm having a hard time trying to convince them to stop vandalizing. Tali64^2 (talk) 17:14, 8 December 2021 (UTC)
You could still adopt the wiki, because obviously vandals wouldn't be considered "active users" when it comes to wiki adoptions. --miki-- (talk) 17:19, 9 December 2021 (UTC)
