My name is Brendan, I am the bureaucrat of Madagascar Wiki. I hope that you're in good health and are doing fine.
I am here to request for an affiliation between the Wreck-It Ralph Wiki and the Madagascar Wiki. With this affiliation, I hope that we can collaborate to improvise both of our Wikis and help each other when in need.
Below are some information on the Madagascar Wiki:

I wanted to let you know I've seen this but don't have time to form a proper response to it right this second. (Just letting you know in case for some reason I haven't responded in 24-48 hours--I might have just forgotten to get back to it. XP)
dear god i'm so hyped for the sequel of this movie. my friends and i went to go see the new jurassic park movie today and i saw a poster for this movie...and i almost screamed a little like and i immediately told them, "guys we HAVE to watch this the day it comes out. like i don't care if it's at midnight i'm dragging you all there."
I've been good. Busy but good. XD Excited for the sequel, trying to make sure the wiki's ready for any sort of large influx of people (I keep expecting it but it never really happens XD), cleaning my house, making sure I'm prepared to apply for a specific job at or near the end of summer, etc.
So... fine. XD
(Also, for some reason this reminded me that I ran a survey about how people reacted to the trailer and I need to compile and release the results since I haven't done it. XD)
Yeah, I've been busy too (not in the way you'd think...mostly doing things like what I said above XD). We'll probably get the influx after the movie comes out, that's what happened when the original came out. Nice, hope you get the job!
Hey Citrusella! I've been looking through Turbo's and Vanellope's galleries lately. There were images in the film section almost showing every second of the character from all scenes they appear in. I was wondering if a few could be deleted where their not shown in a awkward pose or moment? They don't have to be deleted. I was just thinking that some could be removed as to not show every part the character appears in the movie.
I have recently discovered LastPass, which is a great help for remembering passwords, and is especially useful on those sites which have anti-clipboard nonsense, as if they don't want their users to log in or something.
N.B. this is not spam; other password managers are available, and probably just as good. I only mention the above one because it's the one of which I have experience.
Wreck-It Ralph appears in the game, so it could be considered Wreck-It Ralph related (which is why I copyedited it (i.e. fixing the grammar and sourcing and moving it to the right title) instead of immediately deleting it), but I'm not sure if it's Wreck-It Ralph related enough to have its own page? (That is, we don't need to cover everything about the game, but the WIR stuff we could cover is very small.) Like maybe it could share a sort of list page with other games that aren't really directly about WIR but include its characters like Crossy Road, that new Disney Heroes thing, Disney Magical World 2... maybe we could even loop Infinity into it? (Infinity's page is currently a really short blurb, a list of all the characters in the game, and several screenshots/product images. It probably could be shortened and merged into a list.)
That article set me off thinking about what to do even before it was created (i.e. when Amberiane posted the blog post about it before they made it), but I didn't actually figure out what should be done before it was created.
TL;DR: I'm still thinking about what to do. But it's possible I'll end up doing something in the middle (i.e. deleting or moving the article but keeping its information as part of a new list article of some sort). I... might have an idea of what I'll do by the end of the day, if the job application I'm planning to submit won't take too long. (Actually I have to go to the store, too, but I can technically think about it while I'm there. XD)
Unfortunately, no. I don't make people admins unless they're established users who have shown they can do good work, and they want to take on the responsibility. (In fact, I've never made anyone an admin, because even when I thought they were good, I didn't know if they wanted the responsibility.)
You obviously want it, but so far you've only made two edits to articles: one (back in March) looked like a test edit and I reverted it, and the other had good information (though it did need copyediting) but it's only your second total article edit.
Also, I'd probably want to know that you have a need for the tools. Admin tools really aren't really that exciting. (For example, Wikipedia compares admin tools to janitors' supplies, and their admin symbol is a mop over their logo.) Admins get access to special user rights/tools, including but not limited to:
Blocking users from editing
Protecting pages so that certain broad groups of editors can't edit them
Turning wiki features on and off
Editing parts of the interface
Editing the theme
Modifying abuse filters
Rollback (a special fast-revert button for certain edits)
Editing fully protected pages
Considering I myself barely need these tools right now due to the wiki not being extremely active, I don't see a good reason to just give them to someone else who hasn't made many edits yet. Maybe in the future, if you make good improvements, but... I just don't think giving you access to a bunch of powerful tools is a good idea when you might not even need them and I don't know yet how you'd handle them. Sorry.
You can definitely help improve the wiki, though, if you'd like. You don't need to be an admin to do it!
Hello! Would you be interested in merging this wiki with the other Wreck-It Ralph wiki? It means that the url for that wiki would redirect to this one and guarantees that all Wreck-It Ralph information can be found in one place. Let me know what you think!
(Though suddenly as I write this, my brain has decided to wonder if any of the content merges over or if it just... redirects that wiki here. Help:Merging communities sounds like the content doesn't come over unless it's exported first, though. (Does any content need to come over? A lot of what I saw there looked like a close if not exact match to what's already here (or an outdated version of what's here).))
But yeah, to put a meandering reply back on point: We're interested!
Great! I just have to hear back from the other admin. If it's the same content then...no it doesn't have to come over. Although that might be a conversation to have with the other admin from the other wiki?
