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 >

Welcome to part 1 of The Ultimate Wikia Guide. Today, I will be talking about how to create a good userpage.
A userpage is a page about a user in which you can share information about yourself, such as the wikis you own, your favorite pages, and other stuff of the sort. Userpages are a great way to tell the community about yourself.
Simple. Just click on your username in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Then click on the User profile link. After that, it's all up to you!
You should generally include information about the wikis you own (if any), your favorite wikis, your favorite topics, etc. Do NOT include personal information such as your phone number, address, or disorders.
You mean the one with your profile picture and number of e…

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…

Hello. I am trying to figure out how I can remove a Stub category from multiple pages at one time. Because this user named Lord Law added stub categories to hundreds of pages to w:c:countypedia without my permission. Is there a way to completely eradicate the category?Read more >
Hello everyone, here are just some tips on boosting up your wiki:
- Add category tracks on achievements. Well, you can only earn a limited amount of badges when you only leave out your achievements. Why not create another category track? That way, all your contributors will get to see their progress.
- On a new wiki, atempt to make around 5 pages per day. You need some responsibility for this. 5 pages may be too much, but try to attempt for this number until such time there is already a contributor, just manipulate your limits.
- That's all for now. More tips soon!
