Hi, welcome to Antagonists Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Cujo page.
If you need help, and there are no local admins here, you may want to visit the forums on the Community Central Wiki. Looking for live help? Then join us for an upcoming webinar to chat with staff and other Wikia editors. You can also check our Staff blog to keep up-to-date with the latest news and events around Wikia.
Adopting the wiki Edit
This wiki is in need of a new administrator. The only administrator, Dripen, has not been here since February 13 and has not logged into his account since April. The wiki is available for adoption and since you are the most active user here, you should be given the opportunity first to make the adoption request.
If you're interested, go the Adoption Requests page and make the request there. From what I can see, you meet the qualifications, with the possible exception of talking to others. The only message you've left for another person has been for an anonymous user, who is actually one of the problem users on this wiki.
The adoption process also says that you should start a blog or a forum message to announce that you are going to adopt the wiki. Of the users on this list, the one who is most active after you is TheSitcomLover, so you would need to make sure he's involved. For the rest of the active users who have been here in the last two months, Razor Boyz and I are mostly here to clean up the messes caused by Aadit.arora, Lesasu, Mctalwolfer and Nathaniel1996.
After this wiki is adopted, there are two issues I need to discuss with you. The first is the wordmark which currently says "Villains Wiki" and the second is the focus of the wiki. —RRabbit42 (leave a message) 03:30, December 8, 2013 (UTC)
- I don't know if I should. I'm not the most experienced contributer. In fact, I'm actually younger than most wiki contributers, which is why I don't often leave messages or blog posts. So adopting the wiki is a very big step. It's a big decision for me. —user:Jayden Jean-Baptiste (talk) December 8, 2013.
- It isn't necessary to have a lot of experience to be an administrator. An admin can do a few extra things that a regular user can't, such as renaming pictures, deleting pictures and pages, and renaming a page without leaving a redirect to the new page if it isn't needed.
- An admin can also block users from editing. Ideally, blocks should be short to encourage people to change poor behavior. You leave a "you're being annoying and need to stop" kind of message, and if they don't, place the block. If they keep at it, the block gets longer, or if it's obvious they're a vandal, use a longer block first. It shouldn't be a way of punishing the user, which is the attitude I've seen in a few admins.
