Hi everyone! I'm Kristi, and I just wanted to let everyone know about the wikis I founded.
- Music Videos Wiki is a wiki for every cover and original song by a YouTuber. And there's a lot of them on YouTube. So if you listen to covers and are a fan of any YouTuber, join and add it on the wiki.
- Television Fairytales Wiki is a wiki for every fairytale adaption, live and animated. This includes upcoming ones, like Maleficent.
I haven't gotten the main page and rules page set up fully, and any advice would be great. Thanks!Read more >
In december of 2013 at the TMNT 2012 Wiki it started...snowing. The screen was SNOWING!
I have NO idea where it came from! But i thought it was just a thing Wikis did during Christmas time.
It is now 2014 and it is still there! I have no idea how to get rid of it!
PLEASE HELP!Read more >
Welcome to part 2 of The Ultimate Wikia Guide. Today, we will talk about the main page of your wiki, and how to improve it and use it to your best abilities and advantages.
The main page is the page all Wikians will get directed to when they go to your Wiki. When you first start a Wiki, your main page URL will be the name of your wiki (e.g for my Wikicommons Wiki, the URL is http://wikicommons.wikia.com/wiki/Wikicommons_Wiki).
There are tons and tons of ways to spruce up your main page. The best way is described below, but whatever method floats your boat is the method you should stick with, especially when your like me and have multiple wikis.
All main pages should have some form of introduction! On my Reference 365 Wiki, I included a welcome m…

While I was thinking of ideas to make a cool mainpage for this wiki,I thought of posting a blog post here about the wikia mainpages.
I've made a couple of mainpages myself;(this one being the latest)
From my observation,almost every wiki mainpage runs on the same principle:2 columns with some box templates containing text.A few might have widgets/gadgets.
Post if you've any ideas for a new layout for the wikia-mainpages.
Leave your suggestions in the comments.
Looking back on it, helping TheSitcomLover out of getting blocked, I've learned very many valuable editing tips and tricks to maintain your admin status, and not seem like the biggest nerd on wikia.
Okay, links are good (Very, Very Good). They help show off the wikia you are proud to edit. But don't sit there, go through the page, and go "Oh. Gee.. I want that to be a link. I'll do it."
THAT IS A REAL BIG NO NO
Links, as I said, are good, but just one or two to the same page are all that are really needed. For example:
My favorite page is Help:Color. I like Help:Color. Help:Color is cool. we should all read Help:Color.
My favorite page isHelp:Color I like that page. It's cool. we should all read Help:Color.
The first sentence looked very …

Hello guys and gals. I have a lot of suggestions for Project Darwin and Wikia. Please leave your suggestions in the comments below. Also, don't be rude if some of these features are already included or have alternatives. I just want to make Wikia a better place (that's the way I feel about Wikimedia projects as well).
Add a digital clock widget to the Wikia toolbar (the one with the "Start a wiki" button)(Reason: Dev Wiki has a clock gadget code)
- Add Vector and Modern skins from Wikimedia projects (Pending: Mixed reception)
Customize the search box to include other wikis(Reason: Abandoned) Add a sandbox page to all userspaces(Reason: An alternative was found)
- Create templates and
blog postsvia the "Edit" button (Reason: Makes no sense) Add some gadget…

Hello everyone, I just want to talk about blogs that are out of the wiki, or external blogs.
We all know that we have internal blogs, or the ones we can see in our own wikis, right? Now, when I talk about external blogs, not external links, this is so that we can invite more and more users with the same interest, like if you have a wiki regarding games, some more people that play that kind of game can join your wiki. This will increase traffic for your wikis.
When I tried this yesterday in Prime Numbers Wiki, before that I thought of that, I researched about some specific primes, and saw that there was a blog about prime numbers. And I thought, "Oh, maybe I will make the external blog for my wiki". So, I gave it a try. I also posted it in ou…Read more >
Hi every Wiki I just wanna let you all know that I'm new and could use some pointers to help me get use to Wikia. Thanks -Sophie.Read more >
Hello, everyone~ As the title suggests, in this blog I will be talking about a subject that I and some others believe needs refreshing: how the administrators on Community Central work.
Most new users on Community Central come here for help with local issues and wikia bugs, since it is, after all, the Central wikia and the hub of all Wikia Wikis. All Help pages are stored here, and this (along with the VSTF wiki) occasionally seems like a VSTF outpost. Because of this, it is often mistaken that Community Central administrators have more power over other wikis. I would like to take some time to correct this belief.
Firstly, it should be noted that any Administrator is just a normal user, trusted to use a few extra links and pages to keep a wi…Read more >
