This page allows users seeking adoption to browse through the adopters currently available, allowing for a more personalized service. If you find one or more adopters you are interested in, please contact them on their talk page. For easy accessibility and reference, this list has been sorted first for availability then alphanumeric order; it is recommended that adopters regularly update their own listing for the benefit of potential adoptees. For a more extensive list of adopters available see here.

All of the users on this list adopt users. Those displaying Emblem-persons-blue-green.svg are also willing to provide mentorship to users involved in dispute resolution, users who have been blocked (as part of a conditional unblock) and users who are subject to topic bans or other sanctions.

I enjoy writing and editing articles about art, artists, history and social issues. I have written and edited a number of articles about the United States, United Kingdom, India and other paces. I like making and editing articles so that they are quality, cited articles - and like to nominate pages for the Did you know? section of the main page. There are a lot of tools that I've learned about to make some things simpler and I enjoy working with new people.

I have a wide range of interests including the history and geogaphy of south east England, anything on the front page that needs fixing, vandal fighting and issuing warnings for vandalism. I have written a number of new articles which have featured in the "Did you know?" section of the front page. I am always pleased to help other editors when I can or point them to someone with more specialised knowledge. Yes I work in British English for the most part.

Because the #1 reason of new editors leaving is the complex workings and processes of Wikipedia, I am offering to adopt users. I focus on deletion and new pages patrol.

I am something of a WikiGnome, and spend much of my time here new pages patrolling, nominating pages for speedy deletion, and using STiki. I am also active at WP:RFPP, WP:UAA, and other such areas, and have created >130 articles. The weekends are the ideal time for me, but most days after 2 PM Central Time would be the ideal time to contact me.

At the moment i am online pretty often and check in to wikipedia regularly. Though after a few months i will be cutting down on availability. I've edited for at least 2 years.

Major theme-park and Disney fan, so you'll find me in articles related to theme parks, roller coasters, and such. Also dabble in video game articles. Will work in just about any article if I find some noteworthy information to add that isn't already there ... provided it's cited, of course.
On the US east coast, I log in pretty frequently, many times a day. I try and respond to questions and comments as soon as I see them, so you won't have to wait long till you hear from me.

MrX (talk)

Hi, I'm MrX, and I want to adopt you! I have edited as an IP since June 2006, and as a registered user since April 2010. I am on the site almost every day, and will update this profile if that changes. My primary areas of interest are medieval history, biographies, LGBT related topics, civil rights, photography and science. Areas where I can help are formatting, uploading images, understanding policy and guidelines, fighting vandalism, negotiating content disputes and using some of the automated tools such as AWB, Twinkle, and STiki.

Target360YT (talk)

I started editing Wikipedia 2-3 years ago as an IP editor. Then, I created an account 2 years ago but lost the password. Until early this year, I had abandoned Wikipedia nearly totally. Early this year, I created another account (this account) and started off roughly, being a victim of bites. But I hung on and continued to persevere on Wikipedia. Now, I am mostly focusing on maintaining tank related articles and other military-related articles or WikiProjects such as WP:TANKS (which I founded) and WP:MILHIST. I am also a member of WP:Intros. You can read more about me on my user page. I am a armored-warfare fanatic by the way! Face-grin.svg Anyways, leave a message on my talk page or email me to contact me!

I have been a contributor on Wikipedia since 2006 and spend the majority of my time combating vandalism, helping out new users, working through dispute resolution and conflict of interests. My approach is to understand where you are coming from and where you want to go with your wiki-authorship/experience. I will ask a lot of open ended questions, and help direct you to the best resources available. I have been around a long time, but still don't know everything. I will periodically review your edits (if that is what you're looking for) to help direct you towards your goals.

Go Phightins! (talk)

I have been around for about two years and have experience in a variety of areas including the Teahouse, Articles for Deletion, and vandalism reversion as well as numerous other Wiki-Projects, mostly related to sports, but in other areas as well. I graduated an adoption course a while back and it was beneficial to me, so I thought I'd give back and adopt someone (or many people) myself. I've completed my my adoption school; a few past adoptees help me out with administrative work allowing me to take on additional adoptees. If you'd like to be adopted, you can either email me or contact me at my talk page. Thus far, I've had two adoptees graduate, about five disappear, two quit, and three in progress. I am currently taking one new adoptee...I have experience with users coming off blocks, brand new users, and users who have been around for a while but just want to further their skills.--Go Phightins!

Hey. I'm a young'n (well, relatively), so I may be able to help inexperienced young people (14+) more effectively than others (25+). I have plenty of knowledge on Twinkle, STiki, and can accept a total of 2 users to adopt. I have an impressive knowledge of WikiGnome (or small, seemingly random) activities. Leave me a note on my Talk page if you want me to adopt. I retain the right to deny certain users, but not you though. k_scheik (talk)

I am a regular editor here at Wikipedia. I am both a rollbacker and reviewer. I usually patrol new pages, fight off vandals, and assist at the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard. I recently joined the Guild of Copy Editors because I want to focus more on improving articles rather than rejecting them. I consider myself an all-around editor that knows a little about a lot of things. I would love to adopt a new user and show them the ways of the 'pedia!

PrairieKid (talk)

I am a teenager in southwest Washington, United States where I study Business Administration at a local community college with the hopes of becoming a politician as an adult. I focus primarily on content creation in political articles. Political articles tend to have a lot more... heated (although friendly, for the most part) debate and I have seen my fair share of it. I have become very familiar with the policies here on Wikipedia. I can help any one looking to add content. (I really appreciate all the anti-vandalism guys and the copyeditors, but I am too arrogant to do anything THAT helpful with so little thanks... I'll take this opportunity to add that I am a cynical and sarcastic person.) If you want to get involved with writing articles, learn more about compromise and find good ways to conduct research, please let me know here and I will set up a curriculum for you. Cheers.
