Hey! I’m Lucho, and I have been working for over five years on the Community Support team mostly with Spanish speaking communities, which is why I never had the pleasure to interact with you. I’m currently working on the Movies/TV vertical. I have gotten good references about your work on RuPaul's Drag Race Wiki. As you might know, Fandom has been through significant changes this year (as you read on the blog entry in Community Central ), and there is a great opportunity for you in the platform… I was wondering when could we have a quick chat so I can explain more about this position. Let me know what would be the best place to have this conversation :D
I always try to update the wiki with up to date and revelant information. It's like a daily occurance, looking at the wiki :). I just wondered if there was a chance of possibly having a role on the wiki because I truly love everything on this page. I know it probably wont happen but I was just wondering :)
Hi Mandy! I know you have been inactive for a few months and I understand our lives cannot always ensure that we can stay active on this wiki.
I came to your page a few days ago and saw that Chen, a Fandom community member, commented, so I thought about it. I expressed my thoughts about the direction of the wiki since updates are needed to things only the admin would have access to like the CSS.
He replied and mentioned that I, personally, could adopt the Wiki and "That will be quite helpful to continually maintain and develop this community," though I know that this wiki should be handled with respect as you and the others have worked for to make this wiki amazing.
I would not like to disrupt anything that you have done to make this Wiki so good, but I do rescognize that there needs to be a slight glimmer of leadership in the editing department. Chen has stated that in order for my adoption of this wiki, I must wait two weeks for a responce. Until then we will continue to edit the wiki as Season 11 comes to a close, All Stars 5 begins to film, and Drag Race UK will begin having new news.
Hey sis! You definitely do not have to go through all the hassle of adoption lmao I will gladly give you admin rights myself if you are willing to fulfill that position. I've actually been planning on asking you if you wanted to be promoted to admin for a while now, but I've just been so caught up with life lately and I apologize for that. But I have seen all the hard work you've been putting in here, it hasn't gone unnoticed, and I really can't thank you enough for that. I am able to be more active now but it would be amazing to have some help, especially during times when I'm busy, and you've definitely proven yourself to be a great addition to the wiki, so I'd like to officially welcome you to the staff :)
I'd also like to thank you for being so respectful about this whole thing and consulting with the other staff members first. Most people just tend to be power hungry and don't really care about undermining the work of other people that came before them, so I seriously appreciate that you approached this in such a kind manner. When I took over this wiki 3 years ago, it was a complete disaster and I worked so hard to revamp everything from the ground up, so for that reason I'm very overprotective and cautious about who I trust with control of things, but I trust your judgement so I will grant you full leadership and let you do whatever you think is best for the wiki.
The only important thing I ask of you is to please not make any drastic changes to the CSS without consulting with me first. Of course minor tweaks & color changes are totally fine, but I worked really hard on the core design of everything and I'm very happy with it and it would upset me if that was tampered with. I am DEEPLY passionate about the design aspect here and I'm extremely picky about the look of the wiki, but unfortunately it's just been difficult for me to keep up with consistently changing the theme as more seasons keep coming out so rapidly. So I certainly could use your help and I'm completely open to hearing your ideas and suggestions for improvement if you have any. Ideally I would absolutely love for us to work together and push each other to make this wiki the absolute best it could be :)
Also, just for future reference, even if I'm not active here, I'm never gone for good or out of reach bc I'm always available to be contacted on Discord. So if you, or anyone, ever has any questions or concerns or anything, just shoot me a message there and I'll reply fairly quickly.
Hey Mandy! Glad to see that you're back! I appreciate this very much, and I would gladly accept the position on the wiki. I wouldn't do anything crazy to the CSS, and I would definetly consult you with big changes before hand since youre much more experienced. I understand being protective as I've seen you've been kinda screwed over before by another user who had to be demoted.
Thank you for the opportunity and for the info about discord aha. I would love to start working with you and getting to know you more.
