Really? do you think i have too much time?
i am now working in duel masters wiki to add new images for the newest expansion released tomorrow. BUT when i am adding images, suddenly everything is BLANK! Just blank screen, nothing, can't load it either. It seemed to be better right now, but now you guess what? RECENT WIKI ACTIVITY REFUSES TO LOAD! blank screen. can't refresh it.
Is this april fools day? Or is it just me?Read more >
Hello all of Wikia, Mr Creeper500 here, and I would like to hear your opinions on a matter which has been persistent within a bunch off communities recently. A question of what's better, a democratic wiki where the entire community votes on important matters, or a more fascist system, where only the admins/bureaucrats get a vote.
Well, I don't want to brag, but I've always seen myself as a major democrat, I even co-run probably one of the most democratic wikis out there. And that's also where I am getting the following info on the democratic system:
- Friendlier user experience.
- Better made decisions.
- More of a community feel.
- Overall safer feeling.
- Decisions take longer, especially on larger wikis.
- More running space for trolls.
- Arguments between v…

Hello, I'm Mr.LuigiDude, an admin and prominent community member of Le Miiverse Resource Wiki. I (and numerous other members of our community) have become fed up with the constant problems here on Wikia. I could not count how many times the topic of "New Wikia Error" has popped up in our chat. For a long time now, I've been pondering whether or not to write a blog like this, where I bring up the many faults in Wikia's system, however I have not had the time to sit down and write it until now.
The first issue I'd like to point out is the constant glitches. Whether it is disappearing avatars, chat not loading, edits not going through, pages not deleting, chat's sidebar disappearing, etc., the overabundance of glitches on the Wikia platform ma…Read more >
Hi. My name is Andrew from the Code Wiki. The reason I am writing this blog is because the mass use of deletion comments.
Of course, the syntax is thisTime.
Well, I hope this can be effective so we can be a more polite user. That's what I have for now, see you!
Cheers,Read more >

These are my own opinions backed up with facts referencing relevant discussions. Yes, I'm fully aware that I'm calling out specific Vanguard and Staff members for how they handled themselves unprofessionally that has since caused both sides to be "talking past each other" with legitimate concerns being met with deflection.
Quote of the day: "Unfortunately, the business cannot divulge the reasons as to why PI is, for them, a necessary adoption" - TwoTailedFox
So since the discussion regarding portable templates has generated quite some heated arguments by vocal users, vanguard and staff; thought I would provide pros and cons to both Wikitext and Portable. I have deliberately mentioned wikis of where concerns were brought up to prove with evide…Read more >
I run a create-anything wiki named Community Plaza , whose the main focus is fanon, anime and manga, but that doesn't mean you can't create pages of cartoons/videogames/books/etc (it's a create-anything wiki!).Read more >
Hi everybody. Lately, I’ve been considering joining the Fan Contributor Program. The only problem is, I don’t know what to write about, or even if that which interests me would interest others. Because of this, I would like to hear your input on if and what I should write about.
What fandoms do I know the most about? Like a lot of people, I am a fan of Star Wars and Marvel and DC comics. I am a history and aviation nut, as some of you can attest. I am also greatly interested in languages and cultures, as I speak English, Spanish, and German.
I have been a fan of Star Wars for years, collecting every Lego set I could get my hands on, as well as cross-section books, novels, and plastic models. While I stopped playing with Legos after Episode I…Read more >
- The background size must be < 300kB. That is small..... But okay, as long as it can load.
- And if the width is < 2000px, the image will be split in half, with an ugly line between. Are you serious? 2000px and < 300kB?
- Compress the image so it would meet the criterias. And now wiki zoom into the background like 5x the size of it. Why don't you just make it fit?
- I agree, I'm an idiot at design. But at least, can't you tell me the ratio of the width and height? "Nah, just tell them it should be < 300kB and > 2000px for the best result, they will figure out the rest" And I'm here spending 3 days fixing the ratio, so the image won't be too wide or too high, and still can't figure it out.
- Maybe there is an option for the position of the background. I…
I want to rename these pages on my wikia, but I can't. Also, seeing "Discussions Moderator" just looks stupid. Why not "discussion moderator"?Read more >
