Request

We'd love to help attract new contributors to your wiki. If you're interested in working with us on optimizing your wiki, we'd like to be sure you're following a set of best practices.


For design help (background, logo, home page, etc.), your wiki must follow these best practices:

  • The requester should either be an admin or link to a discussion with an admin agreeing to the help being requested. If there are multiple active admins, they should all be in agreement with the help being requested.
  • The wiki should have at least one active admin, meaning he or she has made at least one edit in the last 7 days.
  • The wiki should have at least 50 content pages. Stubs (pages listed at Special:ShortPages that are less than 200 bytes) should make up no more than 1/5th (20%) of all pages.
  • The wiki should have a clear category structure to help readers navigate the site. Every content page should be in a category. (Special:UncategorizedPages should be empty.)
  • The wiki should not be in the middle of choosing new admins or any other upheavals. It should be a stable, friendly place.
  • The wiki should be using the welcome tool, signed by the admin(s) (MediaWiki:Welcome-user should say @latest, @sysop or the name of an admin).
  • The wiki should not use offensive language or include inappropriate images.


For help with general clean-up and/or organization, your wiki must follow these best practices:

  • The requester should either be an admin or link to a discussion with an admin agreeing to the help being requested. If there are multiple active admins, they should all be in agreement with the help being requested.
  • The wiki should have at least one active admin, meaning he or she has made at least one edit in the last 7 days.
  • The wiki should have at least 50 content pages.
  • The wiki should not be in the middle of choosing new admins or any other upheavals. It should be a stable, friendly place.
  • The wiki should be using the welcome tool, signed by the admin(s) (MediaWiki:Welcome-user should say @latest, @sysop or the name of an admin).
  • The wiki should not use offensive language or include inappropriate images.


The Community Development Team will make all final decisions and design work will be at their discretion. If your wiki meets these criteria, leave a message on the talk page of this article.
