ShoutWiki Hub:Wiki Adoptions

ShoutWiki — express yourself and be heard!
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.

Criteria for adoption[edit]

Wiki criteria[edit]

  • 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[edit]

  • 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[edit]

To adopt a wiki, simply fill out the below details, formatting it in the same way:

Name of wiki[edit]

  • 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: ~~~~

Other notes[edit]

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.

Adoption requests[edit]


  • Premium. I wanna adopt this because there is no interest in the community of encyclopedists --Penarc (talk) 15:21, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

Omniverse Wiki[edit]

Off Topic Spinoffs[edit]

  • 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

Harry Potter[edit]

  • Link to wiki: Harry Potter
  • Username on wiki: Percy
  • Link to your contributions page: s:w:harrypotter:Special:Contributions/Percy
  • Reason for adoption: I am cleaning up the wiki. I have formatted the missing infoboxes and currently emptying Category:Pages with broken file links. With user rights, I will have access to Help:Contents (customizing facilities) to complete the project.

BZPB Wiki[edit]

  • 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)
Granted. Keep up the good work. --Lewis Cawte (talk) ShoutWiki Staff 11:30, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Anti-Wikia Alliance[edit]

Webkinz Picture Guide[edit]

  • 20px Not Done: You've already been made an admin and bureaucrat by local administrators. --Lewis Cawte (talk) ShoutWiki Staff 20:14, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Nintendogs Wiki[edit]

  • 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
  • 20px Denied: The requirements specifically state the minimum number of contributions you must have made to request adoption. --Lewis Cawte (talk) ShoutWiki Staff 20:23, 17 September 2019 (UTC)


20px Granted. --Lewis Cawte (talk) ShoutWiki Staff 20:12, 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 (talkcontribs) 18:08, 3 October 2019‎ (UTC).

20px Denied: Inactive --Lewis Cawte (talk) ShoutWiki Staff 11:02, 19 June 2021 (UTC)

Blogger Beware Annotated[edit]

  • Link to wiki: Blogger Beware Annotated
  • Username on wiki: GoosebumpsArt
  • Link to your contributions page: Here.
  • Reason for adoption: This is an older wiki that I didn't have a part in establishing, but I enjoy visiting it. There are no active editors besides me... And the occasional spam-bot. I'd like to help curb any spamming. (Also, I might like to update the wiki's theming, as text in the references section becomes difficult to read when the text is highlighted.)

20px Approved, apologies for somehow missing this. --Lewis Cawte (talk) ShoutWiki Staff 11:02, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
