I am Josephyr, and I am
writing this because I’m addicted to Wikiagoing to share a couple of my favorite things about Wikia!
So, as a quick background overview, I first found Wikia after I Google-searched a game my brother was playing. Upon stumbling upon this thing called a “wiki”, I was instantly shocked at how organized and creatively it was set up. I quickly dove into editing, and every since then, it’s become one of my favorite pastimes. So since that is all clear, let me jump right into my favorite things about Wikia!
1. The ability to create a wiki on any topic, and edit and grow it into a wonderful database.
This was, and still is, my #1 favorite thing about Wikia. Battle Nations (the game I mentioned earlier) was s…

This is the go to blog for highlighting admins in your wiki! If you feel like there is more to be covered, leave a message below!
You will see that many wikis have admins that have bolded and coloured usernames, maybe with a picture or flashy text. It's important to highlight admins because they are often experienced with the wiki's topic and administration, so you can easily identify someone who can help you out. It's also helpful when reviewing WikiActivity or RecentChanges, because most admins will have trustworthy edits, and it's easier to spot them out! You can also change the theme of comments to better differentiate between moderators, admins and bureaucrats for larger wikis.
This blog post will delve into several methods you can use …

Hey all. This blog is a quick FYI on unofficial Wikia community groups.
For background, community central is an official wiki, it's ran by Wikia and Admins and Mods are chosen by staff. By contrast, the Wikia community channels I'm listing are unofficial, ran by Wikians according to their rules, but as general purpose hang out areas for the Wikia community. Most of them were made before chat was a feature on Wikia, and so there was a greater need to have a way of communication with Wikians. Some of them can be useful on mobile devices (where we can't get to chat), and they're also useful because you can send a message (public/private) to someone who's offline, and they'll get it later.
IRC is a text-based chat platform. Way way back, Wikia u…

Hello, it's me.
I read Sannse's blog and I thought #yolo.
Home page • About us • The game
Today, I am introducing a newly created wikia, established on September 2015, about a recent-release city-building video game called Cities: Skylines for the PC (and soon-to-be Xbox One), developed by Colossal Order and published by Paradox Interactive. Cities: Skylines is a simulation city builder that let's you take on the role of a mayor, city planner, modder, and more.
Cities: Skylines has two expansion packs: one that has been released and one that was just recently announced a few days ago. With the recent announcement of an upcoming expansion pack, I thought about bringing in more contributors by promoting the wikia and building more page…

Hey again! Here are a few tips for you that will ensure you are able to adopt the inactive wiki you have been working on.
between adoptions of contributions of useful, related content
There's a few requirements for you to check, to make sure your adoption goes through without hassle.
Make sure you have not adopted within the last month, that you're not currently blocked on another wiki in Wikia. Also check that you have contributed for at least a week and that you've created one useful page - the more the better, to show you are dedicated to the wiki.
Make sure you write up a blog post, forum post or some other thread on the Forums at your Wiki. It should be a short and sweet notice that you want to adopt the wiki, and ask the active community what…

Hi, I'm ZeroTigress, current admin of the Ragnarök Wiki. What is the Ragnarök Wiki, you ask?
The Ragnarök Wiki is a wiki centered on archiving the entire Ragnarök franchise, which started with the Korean manhwa written by Lee Myung-Jin. The manhwa spawned 2 online games and a multitude of spin-offs and merchandise. What we need help most with the wiki are with information about the spin-offs and people to manage the German, Portuguese, and Japanese versions of the wiki. We welcome anyone to come join the community as long as they adhere to the wiki's editing policies and are respectful to their fellow contributors. If you are unable to write articles, that's fine! We could use translators to translate articles on the Ragnarök Wiki into Germ…Read more >
Everyone is welcome to write about their community on Community Central's blogs, whether it's an old and established wiki, or one that's brand new.
The two most important things in doing this are to provide a link to the wiki, and make sure you explain what the project is about.
Blogs that are just a sentence or two long, and don't include a link or an explanation are not going to attract any attention, and may even be deleted. Remember, most people on Central will have very different interests to you. So you need to try and encourage them to come to see your project anyway.
When you create your blog post, you need to think about what you want people to know. And what those people will want to know. The Community Central community might be inter…Read more >
