To request design and/or technical help from the Community Development Team, click the "Add your request" button and enter the name of your community (preferably with a link) plus a description of what you want help with. Don't forget to sign your request with ~~~~.

We are now also accepting requests for help with general clean-up and organization. If your community could use help with these things and meets the second set of best practices listed on the page linked below, then let us know!

Before you post your request, make sure that the community follows the best practices criteria.

The Sims WikiEdit

We've been discussing the need to update the wiki theme in preparation for the upcoming release of The Sims 4 (in early September). Based on the discussion so far, the conclusion is that we'd like to seek help from the Community Development Team to help us create a new visual theme for the wiki. This would include a new wiki background image and header image (the picture behind the wiki navigation menu). I've double-checked the required best practices and I believe our wiki meets or exceeds them; our wiki has only 55 pages smaller than 200 bytes (out of 9,500+ content space pages), uncategorized pages is empty (except for one article which is there erroneously at the moment), the wiki is not undergoing any upheavals (we are discussing a possible administrator promotion, but it does not have an affect on the overall stability of the community), we are using the welcome tool, and our wiki prohibits offensive language and inappropriate images.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide. -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 05:37, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

The Sims Wiki (Português do Brasil)Edit

Hello! I know we're not supposed to look for help in the English central, but this kind of help (which I think is very useful and necessairy) isn't avaliable in our central yet...

We need a background for our Wiki and we don't know exactly how to do it, since we don't really know many computer programs that would help. In adittion, our objective is to be far from other The Sims Wiki's design, what has been very hard. One of our problems is that we have a lot of short pages, but that is because of our Player Stories' politics (each character page has one minor page where the players can write their stories with that character, that is, what happened to them in their games), but anyway we are the biggest Brazilian Wiki :3 We will do whatever is necessary to simplify the job of anyone who will help us, so that's what we need, as a start: a background, a better wiki-navigation and additional help with the design

Thank you very, very much!

Update: I forgot to glue the link! LOL!

Please collect my all design, collage, photo sents at the same main page as visible too beside profile page or other page usages. Deger IskenderInsert non-formatted text here

Austin & Ally WikiEdit

Hi! I would like to suggest the Austin & Ally Wiki for a new background! Our wiki complies to all of the critia. I just fixed up our uncategorized pages, though it still lists those pages. You might have to clear your cache a bit to see it empty.

So I am requesting for a new background. I would like to have a background made from this image:
Austin & Ally picture for development

Mainly, I want the background to have bricks indentical to the ones in the picture. Then I want to have the picture of Austin (the blonde guy) jumping and Ally (the girl with the brown hair and silver pants) jumping on the sides of the background. If space allows, you can add Trish and Dez (the other two people) in the middle or below Austin and Ally.

These pictures here might help you with the bricks: [1] [2] [3]

That's the first background I would like to try. I sure hope I'm not putting to much on you here but I also would like to try a second background. I would like you to make a background out of these two pictures: [4] [5] I want Austin and Ally to be on opposite sides. You can use the background colors that are in the images, maybe make them a little lighter.

Thank you so much! You guys rock!

Fanon Fairies WikiEdit

Hi BloomRocks. Fanon Fairies Wiki look good, so I added it to the list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 16:14, July 8, 2014 (UTC)
I've now realized that you're trying to bypass the best practices criteria by making a request from Fanon Fairies Wiki for a logo to be used at which was just created and certainly does not meet the criteria. Therefore, I cannot approve your request. If you want, you can ask for this logo on this section of the forums here at Community Central and see if a user wants to make it. Otherwise, you can make a new official request when the new Teenage Dreams Wiki meets the criteria. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 21:47, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

The Secret Circle Wiki Edit

The Secret Circle Wiki is in terrible need of a clean-up. The main problem is the unused files on the wiki. There are just way too many for me to delete, so I was wondering whether the Community Development Team would help. M.J. Daniels (talkcontribs) 04:36, June 30, 2014 (UTC)

Monkey Quest WikiEdit

Hello, I am Abce2, an admin from the Monkey Quest Wiki. Recently, another user and I have become the adopters of this Wiki, and it needs a lot of work.

Blue Bloods Universe WikiEdit

Hello! I am SecretCircleMegaFan and I'm the founder and admin of the Blue Bloods Universe Wiki and I would need help with two or three things on the wiki:

  • first, I'd need help in creating a template but that's kinda complicated to explain, so I won't go far on that here.
  • then, I have a Project page that won't be deleted (here) ; I tried changing the title several times and putting redirects, but nothing seems to work, and I suppose only Staff members can erase it.
  • and finally, though I'm not really sure about it for the moment, I would need help in creating another namespace; a "Portal" namespace more precisely. Something similar to what the Shadowhunters's Wiki had previously on it, with no appearance of the right column - just like a second main page.

Thank you in advance for any assistance provided! SecretCircleMegaFan (talk) 13:56, July 4, 2014 (UTC)

Pretty Little Liars Wiki Edit

Hello, Community  Development Team. My name is Selena but my username is  Fearless Diva:( and I am an admin on the Pretty Litte Liars Wiki:( The reason I am  writing this request is because we are need of some design help. We want to be able to change our chat room and the Admin/Bureucrat/Chat Mod titles to have them be more personalized. Like if a user gets block have it say: "Vanished from Rosewood".  Or when we go into the chat room have it say Welcome to A's Lair and if we kick/ban people  on the chat  have it say: "Expelled from the A-Team". If people leave the chat on their own accord have it say something like" ___ has gotten a message from A). Whereas, when it comes to the "titles" we would want to change  the chat mod title to say:" A-Team Member,  the admin title change to " Liar" and the  Bureucrat title change to " Black Widow". How could we do this? Can you help? I would really appreciate it! Thanks a bunch!

  • To change the Preview (Not on Wiki) but this is on the BBC website but without the paragraphs below and dates and position and Image also name as that will all be changed for each character.

Rio WikiEdit

Rio Wiki Navigation Bar Background 11.7.2014

The unselected tab titles are difficult to read.

Hello Wikia Community Central. I'm HarpyPurio, the bureaucrat of Rio Wiki. Our community has changed the graphic background and the background image of the Wikia bar very recently. The latter has brought us some difficulty that I'm struggling to solve. The black letters in unselected tabs in the navigation bar become very hard to see due to the dark color of the image. I'd like to ask if there's anyway, .CSS or something like that, that I can customize the color of the letters - specifically I want them to be in white.

Sincerely yours. HarpyPurio-sig.png(talk) 15:18, July 11, 2014 (UTC)

Hi Harpy. It appears that you already figured out a solution to the issue by editing Wikia.css. Well done! :) JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 22:31, July 17, 2014 (UTC)

Free! WikiEdit

Hi! Celestetwit here, an admin of the Free! Wiki. I'd like to request for help with the wiki's background. I really want to have the same background in this website. The background in the website is not a GIF image but is an animation of a group of images. Is it possible to do the same in the wiki? If it is, please help the wiki have that background. I would also like to apply the hover event in this site to the wiki but I don't know how.

Also, is it possible to embed an external music player? Specifically Billy Music Player.

Speculative Evolution WikiEdit

I am Myotragus, one of the admins at SpecEvo wiki. I would like some design help with the main page (Feel free to make various new templates and mess with the design of the current ones.), theme. (See below.), and logo (See below.).

First, the design. I've seen some wikis that have backgrounds for the top navigation, so if that's possible, have a mirrored version of this, extended to have more water area (To go under the actual navigation.), with the creature at the left were the logo is currently, and the logo being the same but without the dinosaur-ish thing at the left, and with said background. Text would be the same.

The main background would be this on left and this on right.

A main logo for the wiki would also be nice. I was thinking three arrows coming from a central point (Admitedly kind of like the swastica, but with arrows and without the down one.), a red going right, a black going upwards, and a blue one going left, all from the same central point.~~Myotragus 14:39, July 20, 2014 (UTC)

Skatoony Wiki Edit

Hi, I'm ChameleonCove, the new admin at The Skatoony Wiki. I need your help with the design and organization.


  • The wiki needs a new logo. It should pop out to the viewer and editors. In case you didn't know, this is the Skatoony logo. 
  • A new favicon is also needed. The old one looks crowded, so maybe reduce all that to just the "S".
  • A background is also needed. I recommend something like this, but without the logo in the way and the sky and buildings are expanded.
  • The front page could be a combination of the Total Drama Wiki front page and the Team Umizoomi Wiki front page, but with the colors of the Skatoony logo.

Hi Little Miss Cute. Skatoony Wiki currently has a lot more than the limit of 20% of total pages that are "stubs" (less than 200 bytes). At Special:ShortPages, there are currently 50 pages that are less than 200 bytes in length. That number should no more than 24 (in other words, 20% of 122). After more content has been added to those short pages, reply here to let me know, and I'll be happy to add Skatoony Wiki to the approved list.

Taiyou no Ie WikiEdit

Hello! :) I am an admin on the Taiyou no Ie wiki, and I would like to request design help for the Taiyou no Ie Wiki. Taiyou no Ie is a manga written by Taamo, and it means "house of the sun" in english. LilacFlower (the founder of Taiyou no Ie wiki) and I have been discussing on how to improve our wiki design-wise, and we have agreed on many things we would like for it to improve, and came to a decision to request help on the community development team.

Some of the things our wiki needs help with:

  • Wordmark: I was thinking about making it feature a sun and a house, more specifically: half of a sun (a semicircle) with 'Taiyou no Ie' written around it on the edge (of the circumference). Then in the semicircle, there would be a house that says wiki in it.
  • Colors/Theme: We would still like to have a sunny theme, but the wiki has too much orange, and we'd like to have slightly more variety of colors (such as blue, purple or green)so that it would be more appealing. (We may need to change the background.)
  • Main/Home Page: We would like help so that the main page is more appealing, with a better navigation.

It's a Digital Trading Card Game, and the wiki I've built with the help of members of the community serves as a roster of all the cards you can obtain along with links to competative matches of the community.

With the expected influx of new players to the game in september and the completion of inputting all of the data this past month, we'd like to dress up the site and make it more visually appealing.

I added a set of pictures to act as the new backgrounds for each of the faction's card collections pages.

First of all thank you for providing this wonderful opportunity and offering to provide help with aesthetic and organization to those who are less proficient with it. I'm an admin and founder on the Secrets wiki (we're a roleplay wikia with content that doesn't stem from any particular pop culture source) and I can't code to save my life.

I was therefore excited to note that our wikia fits your criteria for submission and I have discussed it with the other admins. Unanimously we decided to submit the wikia for consideration, hoping that you can help with the design and clarity of the wikia in general. We have some ideas but we're open to as much or as little input as your team feels comfortable with.

We would be delighted and grateful for your help!

Thank you for taking our submission into consideration.

The Originals Wiki Edit

It's The Originals Wiki (again). This time I need help with an infobox. I'd like to use the same design of The Secret Circle Wiki's character infobox, but I want it go nicely with my wiki with red coloring instead of the green. I already prepared the template on The Originals Wiki, but it's the basic Wikia one so all it needs is to be modified to look like The Secret Circle Wiki's one (with the changes I mentioned of course).

And if it's not too much trouble, I was wondering if the CDT could create headers that I can use for the main page. I'm not exactly sure on what sizes I want them to be, but I'll go with whatever you think is best. They should look something like the official logo, but with different wording of course.

The Originals

Here's the headers I want the CDT to create:

  • Welcome
  • Books
  • Episodes
  • Characters
  • Cast
  • News
  • Social Media
  • Blogs
  • Affiliates
  • Policies
  • Polls
  • Bureaucrats
  • Admins
  • Rollbacks
  • Chat Mods
  • Featured User
  • Featured Article
  • Featured Media

Thanks in advance for your effort!

"Upload a photo" ProblemEdit

Hello, there seems to be a problem with the upload a photo module on the Game Creators Universe Wiki. The problem is that some pictures I upload do not come out with the original dimensions. Instead, they appear stretched out. Here's what I have to go through to even try to get  anything close to the original dimensions and still not have it come out right:

If you can look into this and see if there's anyway you can fix this problem, that'd be great. Thanks

Happy Feet Wiki... AgainEdit

This is what the new background for the Happy Feet Wiki is like

Hi there, this is your admin NewMarioFan65 from the Happy Feet Wiki. I know that the background is like 4 years old and it need to be new since 2011. To be sure that put Mumble (on the top left), Baby Mumble (on the top right), Gloria (on the center left), Baby Gloria (on the center right), Ramon and Lovelace (on the down left) and Erik and Atticus (on the down right). And make the characters at least smaller like it is shown as a preview.

Vampedia Edit

Hi, I'm the newly appointed bureaucrat on Vampedia and I'd like to request a complete makeover of the wiki. Wordmark, favicon, background, etc. I don't have a specific idea in mind, so I'll leave it in your capable hands. Just remember to keep in mind it's for a vampire-based wiki.

Also, could you design an image I can use to promote it on using the promote form? Thanks in advance!

Fairy Tail Fanon Wiki Edit

Hey, I'm part of the admin team of the Fairy Tail Fanon wiki and the only thing I come here in need of is an actual background. A working background that actually fits well with the wiki's design, something we've delayed on doing for years since we were more focused on other things. So, my request is could you take this image and create a working background for our wiki please? Thanks in advance, hit me up on my talk page whenever you can. {{SUBST:User:Zicoihno/autosig}}21:39:35 Wed

Ellie Goulding Wiki TwitterEdit

Hey there again! :) I would like to know if your team also design twitter headers? The ones with 1500x500 dimensions? Because I would like a new one for: I tried so many variations and they all look weird. The one now...I don't really like it. If you agree, which would be awesome I can tell you which images I would like you to use and a theme. :) Thanks! --Azending (talk) 05:25, September 19, 2014 (UTC)

Gran Turismo Wiki - Main Page Edit

Hi, I'm Gp75motorsports, the founder of Gran Turismo Wiki, and I'd like for our main page to be redesigned into something like what TESWiki has.


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. I am the founder and therefore an admin.

The wiki should have at least one active admin, meaning he or she has made at least one edit in the last 7 days. That's me!

The wiki should have at least 50 content pages. Several hundred times over.

The wiki should not be in the middle of choosing new admins or any other upheavals. It should be a stable, friendly place. The last "major upheaval" we had was in 2009 when we elected a bunch of (now inactive) admins. Ever since then, the waters have been calm.

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). It's set to "@admin."

The wiki should not use offensive language or include inappropriate images. We have strict, if implicit, policies about uploading obscene content. Anything found offensive would likely be removed immediately and result in a very long ban for the editor/uploader.


Like I said, the design should be the same as TESWiki's, however for the tab bar below the main slider, the background color of the active tab should be red, and if it's possible, its borders should be slanted to the right. The first tab (all the way to the left) would include our "My Home" feature, the tab to its right would ink to the Forum, and then the final two would be "Affiliates" and "Notifications," where we would post notifications to our users, which would replace the yellow text we currently use to send out important messages. Of course, you're free to add any extra stuff you think would make the main page better.

Important: I would like you to set up the new main page on our test wiki first so we can work together with you guys to hammer out any bugs and give the users the opportunity to test things out before we roll the new MP out. Once setup is done I'll import some images to make sure they don't overflow any divs and to make sure things look nice and then post a poll asking users which main page they prefer. If they respond favorably to the new MP, we can begin rollout on the main wiki. --Gp75motorsports REV LIMITER GT-PT/GT-EN/CSW 20:02, September 19, 2014 (UTC)

Edgeworld WikiEdit

Hello, is there a way to put background files on the Special and other namespaces? I'd like to put the ambient OGG under WikiActivity and other files of the admin's choosing in other pages. Alysdexia (talk) 22:34, September 20, 2014 (UTC)

Hi Alysdexia. I'm pretty sure it's possible to load an OGG audio file on any specific page using JavaScript. That said, I'm not fluent enough with JS to write the code myself, so I would suggest asking for help on the Getting Technical forum section here at Community Central.

Pokemon WikiEdit

Hello. We were wondering if the Development Team could make us a new background image, as well as a new logo. It is the fact that a new game is coming in several weeks, so we want the site to look more than good. Energy X 18:08, September 29, 2014 (UTC)

Heya Energy X! Thanks much for writing in! We stand ready to assist, and share with you the important goal of having a bit of a cleanup before the new game arrives. However, it's important to us here at Wikia that we get the new theme right. That, to us, means that we take the pulse of the community and get some ideas churning the creative waters. So I've added this section to the forum session you started last week. I've also reopened that discussion, to hopefully get a sense of how best to proceed over the weekend. If you could please rally your troops to provide opinions, that would be extremely helpful!
Also, I want to thank you for the extremely community-minded way you've handled yourself so far in that discussion. It's an awesome example of the right way to get the community involved in a request of your Wikia Community Development team! czechout@Wikia    fly tardis 19:03: Thu 02 Oct 2014

Well, the deal is most, if not all, users lack experience in the design, so we thought asking the experts to do that. Energy X 13:03, October 4, 2014 (UTC)

Adding images ontop of each other or buttonsEdit

Hi, I'm from Ellie Goulding Wiki. I'm just asking but this has always been troubling me. I don't know how to place images or formatting on each other. Take this website for example:, if you hover 'itunes' or 'store', it's a separate formatting from the image. How exactly do you do this? Is there a way because instead of using the formatting for the button obviously you can replace it with an image representing the exact same square with words inside of it.

Another good example is the first slider of See the 'hilary duff' logo? It's separate from the map and every other picture in every slide. How do your overlap the images and choose the position.

Thanks! :) --Azending (talk) 04:58, October 1, 2014 (UTC)

Easily done, Azending! I'll communicate with you about this at w:c:elliegoulding in the coming days. Thanks for using our handy li'l request system! czechout@Wikia    fly tardis 18:31: Thu 02 Oct 2014

Elder Scrolls Roleplaying Wiki Edit

Hello. We are currently in need of a clean-up in the Mainspace of our wiki. There are currently too much uncategorized categories, images, etc. that require clean-up. We also require some design help such as functioning templates to help improve the wiki itself. I apologize if this is asking too much.

HumbleDaedricServant Poke 11:01, October 1, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your request! I'll be talking to you about this over the weekend! In the meantime, if you could define further what kind of templates you're interested in improving, that'll help me help you better! czechout@Wikia    fly tardis 18:35: Thu 02 Oct 2014
Heya again :) I'm moving this convo over to the thread you've already started to deal with this issue: w:c:elder-scrolls-roleplaying:Thread:16575. Let's keep talking there. Oh, and if there are any more admin or active users besides Zippertrain85 and yourself, do please alert them to that discussion. We want as many brains as possible considering our course of action!

GTA Liberty Edit

Hey, it's me, AwesomeBoy. Now let's get to the point. There is a template named Template:InsertName. It works, when a user enters a userpage, the user's name is written on Top like 'Hi, <Username>! How are you?'  Like this. But it doesn't work. So could you come to my wikia and fix this?

Unfortunately, this is custom javascript that you will find is maintained locally on a per-wiki basis, rather than by Wikia globally. Now, that's not a huge problem — obviously the whole point of this page is to ask for custom, per-wiki assistance. The big problem with that code is that it doesn't work at all in some aspects of the Wikia experience, such as our mobile skin. As such, we currently don't offer support for it. However, you may find people in the "Getting Technical" forum here at Community Central who would be willing to help. czechout@Wikia    fly tardis 19:16: Thu 02 Oct 2014

Constantine WikiEdit

Background request:

I'd like this image  to be used as the background for the Constantine Wiki . The current background simply inadequate for the wiki's style and makes an abunance of the pages on the wiki look unclean and ultimately, unprofessional. 
If it's possible, I'd like for the red 'Constantine' text to fit in the center of the page (regardless of screen resolution, if possible). 

Cheers, OmegaWulfgar (talk) 16:06, October 9, 2014 (UTC)

Hiya :) Thanks for using our handy-dandy requests system! I'm a little confused about your request, because you've linked to the same page twice. Could you please clarify by providing another link to your desired image? Thanks :) czechout@Wikia    fly tardis 00:43: Fri 10 Oct 2014
By the way, you have a couple of easily correctable faults with your application.
  1. As stated here, you have to be using the welcome tool, and it looks like you're just allowing to coast on its default values right now. Please try to come up with a more custom welcome for your wikia. Think of the points that you'd like to make to all new users about your wikia, and then write those into your welcome. You'll also likely want to change w:c:constantine:MediaWiki:Welcome-user away from @latest (which could allow Wikia Staff to sign) and towards @sysop, which would allow the local admin who's edited most recently to sign.
  2. You've got too many stubs. We here at ComDev define a stub as any page shorter than 200 bytes. And we only allow 20% of your articles to be stubs. Your stubs currently account for 24% of your total articles. Just flesh out three or four of your shortest articles and you should be fine.
Please don't let any of this discourage you; it shouldn't take you very long at all to eradicate these two li'l problems. Thanks :) czechout@Wikia    fly tardis 01:04: Fri 10 Oct 2014
Hmm, I was completely unaware that the welcome tool wasn't set, thank you for the notice. As for the abundance of article stubs, the movie, which the wiki was founded from, did not give coherent enough information for most articles to be filled, and, the majority of the stub pages are pages for the TV which has not aired yet. Therefore, I can't make up for the bountiful number of article stubs until the show airs..OmegaWulfgar (talk) 11:47, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
Also, I've fixed the link.OmegaWulfgar (talk) 11:49, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

Blaze and the Monster Machines Wiki Edit

Hello, I am SirBlaze. I would like a PNG wordmark of this logo uploaded to this wiki. I don't want the blue background; just the logo. I want a flame (styled like the first one) coming out of the main logo, reading "WIKI" in a similar typeface. Thanks.

Hi SirBlaze. To be approved for design help, Blaze and the Monster Machines Wiki must meet the best practices criteria linked at the top of the page, most importantly, having at least 50 pages. Once those criteria have been met, come back and submit a new request. If you don't want to wait, you could try asking on the Designing Your Wikia forum section here at Community Central.

Icewind Dale wikiEdit

I am the founder of the Icewind Dale wiki, and I need help in the design of the wiki and some other issues. This wiki fulfills all requirements to get staff assistance. I would request assistance for the following things:

  • Background, there is one installed, but I don't like the way it is currently projected.
  • I need a custom logo and favicon for this wiki and I don't know how to make one. I would prefer a wordmark which adopts the same font as the official logo, if possible
  • Uploading pictures, I would like to have the Icewind Dale wikia adopt the same system for uploading photos as the Baldur's Gate wiki.
  • Url change, because the wiki is not found on the first page of search results on some search engines, for example google currently.
  • Categories not displaying the number of pages to which the specific category is added to.

New Tricks Wiki Edit

For nearly 8 months now I have been working around the clock to create a rich and vibrant place for fans of New Tricks. I am a huge fan of the BBC show, however I simply do not have the man power to do everything myself within an appropriate time frame. There is 97 episodes (as of 20th Oct 2014) chalk full of info and there is only so much I can do that does not compromise my university studies. Granted, I have learned A LOT since February, and I do not just mean wiki markup, and I am proud of what I have achieved since then. To be honest all I want is more people to help turn the wiki into one that looks professional, has consistent policies and feels vibrant for anyone who wants to learn more about New Tricks.

In short, I am requesting someone to have a look at my wiki and see what I can do to improve it - some admins would be nice! XD

Thank You, Scott Davidson - Founder and Admin of the New Tricks Wiki
