Get ready for a wall of text, haha. TL;DR at the bottom.
I've tried to clean this wikia up a bit, but it's really hard without access to some crucial pages and functions. I've started this discussion to ask if you would've anything against me adopting this community?
I've already written to the previous admin and contacted one of the fandom volunteers to ask what needs to be done to adopt, and they told me that I need to talk to you guys first.
I'm currently an admin on a local MDZS community and for now the only editor (rip me), so you can check it out as an example of my work - but please note that it's still a work in progress.
Okay, so why exactly do I need the admin rights for?
I really want to spruce this wikia up and make it thrive. The homepage is a bit messy and not really up to date with SEO standards. While it is not locked for editing, the css pages are and they are crucial for styling the whole wikia up. I would like to add some fancy character boxes and coding everything inline in a template is not really good for a page, not to mention that not everything can be coded like that.
The color scheme and background also needs to be changed - not that I have anything against pink, I love pink, but it doesn't really fit this series. I would say that beige with dark red and yellowish-gold accents would fit way better, what do you guys think? And use STARembers art as a background.
Let's not even start on the fanarts, which were uploaded after the previous admin went AWOL. All of them need to be deleted, existing image titles need to be fixed (those nfsdkjnfg.png...), then they need to be categorized, license info should be added, etc.
There's also quite a few of doubled pages which need to be deleted, messy templates without documentation, redundant bits of code that make strange things appear on the page, you name it. Oh, and I nearly forgot about the navigation bar, which is practically unusable as it is now. And interwiki! Wikis in other languages are a WIP, so it would be great to link them together.
Of course I don't want to make all of that alone ;p Due to the increasing popularity and donghua coming out soon there's probably going to be an influx of new people and editors, so a few admins would be needed - chosen from willing volunteers, nobody will be forced.
I want to become an admin and make this wikia shine ヾ(≧∇≦*)ゝ
So what do you think? ;)
