    TwiTastic Eclipse Event

    July 7, 2010 by Xean

    It's been a week since the release of the latest Twilight Saga Movie Eclipse, and we wanted to give a recap of the awesome premiere party we hosted last week! The Twilight Saga wiki sponsored a private screening of Eclipse at the Century 20 in Redwood City, California, which was attended by over 150 die hard Twihards. There was a dark excitement in the air, with tons of vamps, wolves and humans of all ages gathered together to celebrate. To see a recap of the night, with pics, tweets, and videos, visit the Eclipse Release page. You can also get recaps on our Facebook fan page and Twilight Wiki Twitter account.


    Have you seen the movie yet? If so, be sure to help us fill out our Book v. Movie page or write your own Eclipse Review.


    Big thanks…

    Recently the Engineering Ops team has been doing some critical work in our San Jose data center to improve site speed and stability. Here's a little background into what they're doing and why.


    Last year, we completed the set-up of our Iowa data center as a backup facility, to ensure minimal disruption if the San Jose data center has an issue. While the machines in Iowa are brand new, it's clear the hardware in San Jose is beginning to age. So now we're installing brand new and top-of-the-line data servers in San Jose. To make sure there is minimal disruption to the site, some of our engineers from Poland are working with the team from San Francisco to install and configure these servers.


    Some key servers will need moving and that may mean a …

    This past week in Los Angeles was the annual E3 Expo, showcasing the hottest new video games upcoming and currently on the market. Joe and Nic from the Wikia Gaming team were lucky enough to attend. Some of the highlights from their blog:


    "...I knew about the new Splatterhouse was that it would be gory, and let me tell you, it certainly delivers. This game is certainly not for the squeamish. The game has a slight cel-shaded effect which gives it a cool look. The demo had me walking from room to room slicing enemies. As mentioned, the game is very bloody - as you're wasting enemies, the floor, walls, and even you are covered in blood from the massive carnage. The gore does give quite a sense of badass-ness as you play." - Splatterhouse_(got_…

    Today we are introducing a new feature to our wikis: image slideshows! Slideshows are a new and engaging way to showcase your wiki's best images. They look great on main pages and are super easy to add.


    To create a slideshow, click the "add gallery or slideshow" button () in the Rich text editor. This will allow you to select a group of images to include, and define their size and captions. Once you have made your slideshow, it will show on the saved page. You can watch the slideshow, click through the photos, and even "zoom" the slideshow to a bigger version by clicking the zoom icon. You can also convert an existing gallery to a slideshow (and vice-versa). To learn more, see the new help page here for more detailed info.

    And, we aren't fini…

    Inspired by our local wikis and other community sites around the web, we recently created a Wikia-wide set of community guidelines. We hope these inspire new wiki founders while building up their communities, as well as guide new users as they gain experience on Wikia. These are not all meant to be hard and fast rules (although some do overlap with our Terms of Use), but provide guiding principles for wiki community growth and sustainability. We strongly encourage wikis to create their own specific guidelines and rules that fit their community and topic. Please feel free to share them here for others to see.

    A quick recap of our Community guidelines, (which can be found in full at Community Guidelines)
