(Please note: This blog is not meant to be treated as though a member of Wikia Staff or the VSTF wrote it. I am not an admin on any big wikis, so I may have some of my facts wrong.)
I, KCCreations (aka KC, KCC, Rina Maximum Zaslavski, Spectrum Koma, Max III, etc...), have been on the Wikia network for almost a year. During my stay, I've learned a lot about the Wikia system(s)...and now I would like to share my thoughts on one thing many users get confused about a lot: adminship.
From what I've learned and experienced, admins are an essential part of any Wikia community. Without them, all heck would break loose (vandals and trolls would vandalize and harass in much bigger numbers because nobody could block them except Staff) because the member…Read more >
At some point, I'm hoping to organise a Wikia Spotlight for the Geometry Dash Wiki. The problem is that it is automatically inelligible for a spotlight due to it being unable to fulfil the best practice of "at least 200 content pages", as seen on the spotlight page. This I disagree with.
The fact these best practices exist is to filter spotlight requests of wikis which might not yet be suitable for widescale promotion, and to act as a guideline for wikis to use to improve in order to achieve that sought-after quality standard. Overall the best practices achieve that purpose and give well developed wikis the opportunity to reach out to a larger audience. However, the 200 article minimum is not a task that directly suggests positive development. C…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 >
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 …

I made a warrior cats rp wiki and its been inactive for a while. Idk if im allowed to advertise but I was hoping for some new users. The wiki is called http://silverclan-and-stormclan-roleplay.wikia.com/wiki/SilverClan_and_StormClan_Roleplay_Wiki. So bye! The Song Of Silence 19:41, April 8, 2015 (UTC)Read more >
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 >
