I just give up. I've tried everything I can think of, wrestling with the format of the main page of my wiki, and it comes out all jacked up every time. I preview it, it looks fine, I submit it, it's going every which direction, lines out of place, pictures crooked.

I'm also having a terrible time getting users, visitors, or even traffic, for that matter. Every night I check my stats, hoping at least one person stopped by. Nope.

I've posted pictures, articles, videos, polls, sliders, you name it...all in the hopes of attracting some help. But I just can't do it anymore. I'm admin of the Carrie Underwood Wiki, and you would think, that with such a huge star, people would be lining up to participate in the wiki. Nope. In fact, the original Carrie Underwood wiki was founded back in 2005 or 2006, and I tried reviving it, but it was a hopeless mess. So then I founded the country music wiki, which enjoyed small success, only to be abandoned by everyone but me.

So now I've tried to form a new one for Carrie, and it's just hopeless. I need serious help. I need someone to help me with the overall design of the place. You can look at all these other female singer wikis. Take, for example, the Adele Wiki, the Katy Perry Wiki, the Taylor Swift wiki. All of those are enjoying huge success, lots of users, people interacting. I just don't understand why Carrie isn't drawing in fans. It baffles me no one wants to help with this. Am I the only Carrie fan here?

But, in a desperate plea, I'm hoping someone out there will see this, and feel some inkling of desire to help me, because I want to see it go big. All of these other superstars have great wikis -- why can't she? I just don't know what to do anymore. If I don't get any help, then it's useless. There's no point in me working on a wiki that is getting nothing, so I'm going to quit if I don't get some kind of miracle soon. It just doesn't make sense to me, and I'm so tired of fighting with it.


If someone, anyone, wants to help somehow, please go to or send me a message. :(

Well, that's the thing. I don't have the slightest clue about what would look good. I'm open for ideas. Carrieunderwoodfanforlife
I'm more technical, if you're having trouble translating your ideas to wiki syntax or you want a special template made, drop me a message at my wall and I'll gladly lend a hand. Good luck --FMF 11:54, July 10, 2012 (UTC)
