I have been hanging around here since May of last year, mostly to do cleanup and to keep vandals at bay as much as I can. Sometimes that's all it takes. Just stick around and clean up the mess without making a big deal about it. And sometimes it takes a bit longer for the ones who are causing problems to get bored and give up or go somewhere else.

But it's become apparent during the past week that this wiki needs an administrator. The messes that are currently being made are not going to stop unless this wiki has an admin on duty. The only admin this wiki has ever had was AgentPortsmouth, who created it at the end of May 2009 and then he left about two weeks later. In fact, according to the users list, he stopped logging into his account altogether just two weeks after that.

So, the wiki has been eligible for adoption for over six years now. This blog is to announce that I intend to adopt it. I don't really like the idea of having to adopt yet another wiki to finish cleaning it up. I would rather adopt a wiki that I'm really interested in. Adopting a wiki to stop vandalism or being promoted to admin because of cleaning up vandalism is what's happened on about three-fourths of the wikis I became an admin on during the past few years. At the moment, the total is 25 wikis. That's a lot of wikis I'm involved in and I really don't give all them as much attention and effort as I should.

But as I said, it doesn't appear that the current problems are going to stop on their own, so I'll adopt this wiki in order to get them to stop. And then I'll look after it until such time someone comes along that clearly demonstrates that they have the passion and drive to help this wiki grow.

If you have any comments or questions, leave them below and I'll try to address them.
