Community Blogs (All)
Thought it might be helpful to new administrators on getting some mentoring help beyond the blogs by Wikia staff and others. This is from my own experience here and essentially all of this works if applied correctly.
Get familiar with the all of the following, keep in mind these are restricted to sysop/admin only:
you can also access block and userrights via the user's contribution page
Make sure you know how to block someone (using special:Block, special:BlockList and from their contribution page), unblock someone (using special:Log/block, special:BlockList and from their contribution page), delete a page (blog, thread, comment, article, template, category, image or file), …Read more >
There were definitely other things I wanted to do with my day. Go jogging, maybe, or see a movie with my girlfriend. That kind of thing.
Instead, I’m stuck on the fifth story of a parking garage dodging fireballs.
Not my idea of fun. But apparently, it’s his.
“You won’t escape me, Redjacket! I will siphon the power from your burning corpse!” screams the maniac chasing after me, ugly red flames flashing from his arms and back. I narrowly avoid the blasts, rolling behind a support beam a few dozen yards ahead of him and trying to beat the flames out of my black and crimson coat. Cool as it is, it sure as hell isn’t fireproof.
“Who are you to decide what my corpse looks like?” I shout back, slipping on my knuck…Read more >
As I put down in my bio, I am planning on starting an Airman/W.A.R.P. wiki soon. I tried to start it today, but I could not because of a problem with my email. My email should be sorted now, but I'll make the wiki later. In the meantime, I'm trying to build up my profile properly. Before some of my information was lost, I hadn't really worked on my profile, so now I am making up for that and what was lost by filling all of this in. Hopefully, nothing will be lost this time. I look forward to using this site more in the future! --Laina Fantasy 11 (talk) 07:33, April 29, 2015 (UTC)Read more >
Over the past few years - and especially the past few months - I've been noticing that Wikia has a habit of instituting changes without a community's consensus.
This has to stop.
Wikia claims to pride itself on openness and individuality, and in many cases, it lives up to these claims. The tools Wikia gives users to collaborate on a specific topic are the best out there, bar none, and the multitude of ways in which users can customize themselves and their wikis is also unrivaled. And yet, Wikia has this strange habit of periodically trespassing on that by introducing a new feature that many communities don't need or want - something that either breaks the experience of browsing the wiki, screws up its styling, or just doesn't sit right with …

So just like forum moderators, but the same thing for pages. There should be page moderators because:
1. So they can protect and unprotect the pages for spam.
2. Delete and restore previously deleted pages.
3. Its part of admin but why would anyone abuse it? No one would abuse it and people can have rules before promoting a user to one.
So is this a nice idea? Should we have it? Please leave a comment below of what you think.Read more >

Hey guys! I'm an admin over at The One Piece Encyclopedia, and I'm here to talk about a hot topic over at our wiki:
- We aren't even close to being ready for Venus Skin!
And have no idea how to go about getting ready for it! We don't even know when it is going to come out, which is another source of stress for our community. Without any kind of timeline, we don't know how hard we should try to fix our own pages. Is it coming in two weeks or 6 months? We have no clue, as far as I know.
And I've been looking around at other wikis to see if any others are ready, and I don't see any aside from the test wikis.
Even Community Central looks bad with Venus!
And unlike most people I talk to, I actually believe in the reasoning behind the Venus skin. I wan…Read more >
