Hi everyone! This is my first blog post here on Community Central!
So by now we've all seen some really cool signatures around Wikia. Ever wondered how those users made them? It's actually pretty easy to do!
Here's a random signature I threw together as an example for this blog:
, , (UTC)
Let's start by talking about what that signature is made up of. Most signatures use a combination of HTML tags, inline CSS styling, and some wikitext to achieve the look they are going for. The entire code for that signature looks like this:always uses the content of the User:Gamedezyner/Signature page located on the Community Central wiki. When set up this way, you will only need a User:YOURNAME/Signature page on one wiki.

Greetings fellow Wikians, I'm going explain to you guys how to make the partially transparent image fully opaque when your cursor is hovering over it. It is an image effect created with CSS. It could be an avatar, or another image on your wiki.
If you want to know how to make the image fully opaque when your cursor hovers over it, copy this code:
Note: It is recommended to replace "number" and "#" with your own numbers.

I have a proposal for Wikia's policy of closing an account. For a while on wikia, when a user requested for their account to be globally disabled by wikia, their accounts have been globally disabled shortly after. But since May 2014, it now takes 30 days with a chance to reactivate the account before it is globally disabled. While that may be good for users that are undecided whether their account should be globally disabled or not, it is bad for users who request for their accounts to be globally disabled and want their accounts globally disabled as soon as possible. Therefore I propose a policy where using the contact form, when users click on the "disable my account link" and request for their account to be disabled, they will be schedu…Read more >
I have an issue that needs to be solved: Why can't I edit the page called Template:CalendarOct in Candy Crush Saga Wiki?
Why this page is spam? Although I have reported this incident to VSTF many times, I still haven't seen any news from VSTF.Read more >
Hello. So I'm Ed, and I need help. If you don't know, I am an admin on The Next Step Wiki, but this is not about my wik, it's about this other wiki called Family Channel Wiki. The show The Next Step is owned by Family, and this one user (Hihibobo) has been ruining this wiki by adding innapropiate words/pages/pictures and I really want to help the Family Channel Wiki. Although I don't edit, I can tell by all the spam that no one has been on that wiki other than Hihibobo. I want to start rollbacking this nonsense, but I want to know what to do because I want to become admin and ban Hihibobo, but it seems that this wiki is like an abandoned amusement park. No one goes there, but very rarely people go there for tours and such. That why I need …Read more >
Here on Community Central many users ask questions, but they are not always on the right place to ask these questions. In this blog post you can find who you have to contact for what.
For questions and reports about this you can go to the VSTF Wiki. You can find there several pages where you can report vandalism and spam.
For this you'd best contact the admins on the wiki you have the problem. If an admin is doing bad things in your eyes you'd best contact the admin by yourself or contact another admin or bureaucrat on the wiki who can talk with the admin, but a bureaucrat can also take away the rights. If your're blocked and can't leave a message there you can do that on Community Central. If the admin also has bureaucrat rights, you can't …

Hi, there! I don't use this account much, but today I thought I'd try a little experiment. Basically, whenever I have an issue related to how a Wiki is handled that can't be resolved for whatever reason, I'm going to start opining about it here, & we're just going to see where that takes us. Hopefully farther than "You can't actually do this, stop." I eventually did find the blog policies, but they were a little vague.
So, until I have a better idea of the limits, I'm going to keep the subjects of this topic anonymous. Of course you can find these quotes through Google, so it's not TRULY anonymous, but welcome to writing on public websites.
I promise that I'll get to the point soon. First, to set up the background, I was browsing…Read more >
So yes - The chat is super laggy - I installed a few codes. In other wikis - it won't lag. Here, it would lag and all the members on my wiki tell me that it is lagging. Help?
P.S : Mediawiki could've possibly harmed the wiki.Read more >
