I see that when you edit something on a wiki, an optional survey would come out asking about ones' experience in editting and/or asking why one didn't save their edits. In my opinion, it's nice that they want to know more about the contributors, but I've been seeing that same survey everyday even though I already filled out (2) two entries (one for each category). How can I make it stop?
Here it is again. And I'm pretty sure I properly saved.

Hello Wikians, thank you for clicking this blog! My name is Sci100, and I am an administrator on Ben 10 Fan Fiction wiki. Now, as part of the job of being an administrator, I actively try to seek new ways to improve my home wiki. One of these ways was the newest program my Wiki is going through, 2014 - A Year of Change, the latest push to clean up the wiki, update different pages, help new users, and make things in general, a better experience for all users. As decided by the wiki, we decided to test Project Darwin's new Visual Editor for one week. During this week (and after), users gave their opinion on Visual Editor. For the sake of privacy, I have named them by User-# instead of their actual usernames. Here are some of the things they h…Read more >
Since I think no one did it, I wanted to know; what's your favorite Cartoon Network Wiki?
The rules are, you can pick any CN show wiki, as long as it has 100 pages as usual. And of course, they can't have more than ONE vandalized page.
Contest end's on 2/12/2014 (next month)! Let the best wiki win!

Hello guys and gals. I have a lot of suggestions for Project Darwin and Wikia. Please leave your suggestions in the comments below. Also, don't be rude if some of these features are already included or have alternatives. I just want to make Wikia a better place (that's the way I feel about Wikimedia projects as well).
Add a digital clock widget to the Wikia toolbar (the one with the "Start a wiki" button)(Reason: Dev Wiki has a clock gadget code)
- Add Vector and Modern skins from Wikimedia projects (Pending: Mixed reception)
Customize the search box to include other wikis(Reason: Abandoned) Add a sandbox page to all userspaces(Reason: An alternative was found)
- Create templates and
blog postsvia the "Edit" button (Reason: Makes no sense) Add some gadget…

We shall propose a new policy for Deletion Warring. Deletion Warring is when a user restores anything, (i.e. Message Wall threads, Files, etc.) and the admin deletes it again, and the user repeats the same action over and over again. That's a sign of abusing admin rights. This is just like Edit Warring. They shall be revoked by Staff and blocked from editing. What are your responses to this post?Read more >
I've been thinking about the way that template documentation is managed with Mediawiki, the software used by all Wikia wikis as well as by Wikipedia.
Most wikis worth their salt make an attempt to write documentation for their templates, so that future users attempting to work with the (sometimes very complicated) templates can readily make use of them. Inevitably, this results in a jumble of the source code, something like this:tags necessary to prevent the documentation page from being transcluded onto pages using the template.
- Categories: Applied to both the Template: page
and all pages into which it is transcluded
- This is illogical: really, how many categories can logically apply to both content articles and to template pages?
- Noincludes and i…

I've been thinking about a conceivable new usergroup right. Just as there is a
bot-globalusergroup, which is essentially the "bot" group on every wiki, I think that we should consider a
admin-globalgroup. That is, it's basically an administrator, but on every wiki on Wikia.
How often do you get to use admin powers, whether due to being an administrator of a wiki or simply a "administrator"? In my experiences on Central and c:wolfenstein, the answer is "almost never". Properly used, rollback is only really important when a massive spam/vandalism attack occurs.
It's not that these attacks don't occur, it's just that when I do find them, it's usually happening on random wikis I've stumbled across... ones in which I don't have any rights. I usuall…

The Borderlands Fanon Wiki is a wiki that has not had it's founder contributing to it since February 2011 (excluding the one conversation we had about me getting Adminship). There are people on the wiki that are willing to edit it and there is one in particular that I wish to also award Adminship to. However, I cannot do this and as the founder no longer edits the wiki, he cannot promote me to bureaucrat so that I can award this user with Adminship.
Therefore, I wish to adopt the wiki and I have already made an adoption request stating this. I want to be able to make people admins so that they can help new users edit the wiki and also manage these users if things get out of hand.
Thanks, Leopard.Read more >
