Skip Beat! Wiki (approved) Edit

I am the only administrator/bureaucrat of the Skip Beat! Wiki and I would like to request another spotlight. The last one was last March. Now, I could say that it is more developed than last time with better templates and new articles so I really hope that this spotlight could attract new viewers and possible editors.

Like last time, The wiki is not in the middle of choosing an admin and it is a friendly place right now. The wiki also uses the Welcome tool, have the Community corner customized and have a customized skin.

If approved: Image // Title: Skip Beat! Wiki // Caption: The magnificent show-biz challenge.

Thank you for your consideration :) QueennicoleeTalk 02:47, December 18, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Skip Beat! Wiki looks great and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:55, January 7, 2015 (UTC)

Slush Invaders Wiki (approved) Edit

Hi I'm Ultra, creator of the Slush Invaders wiki. I'd like to request a spotlight for my wiki with http://slushinvaders.wikia.com/wiki/File:Capture.PNG as a picture and a caption: "Home of the Neon Fighters of Awesomeness!" Here is the link to an admin more active than I: http://slushinvaders.wikia.com/wiki/User:The_Fan_of_Wiki.

Ultralord159 (talk) 01:47, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Slush Invaders Wiki is in pretty good shape but it does have a few uncategorized pages. Can you sort those out? Let me know on my wall when you have done that and I will be happy to add the wikia to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 05:02, January 7, 2015 (UTC)
I've added the wikia to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 01:17, February 9, 2015 (UTC)

UnAnything Wiki (approved) Edit

I'm Thebiguglyalien, administrator of the UnAnything Wiki. We've decided that we want a spotlight to help promote our wiki. We got one about a year ago, so I think we still have everything we need to qualify for a spotlight. Thebiguglyalien (Yell at me here) 22:28, December 21, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. UnAnything Wiki still looks good, but you do have some uncategorized pages. Could you please sort those out? Let me know on my wall when you have finished and I'll be happy to add the wikia to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 13:54, January 7, 2015 (UTC)
Added! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 07:12, January 9, 2015 (UTC)

Night World WikiEdit

Night World Wiki could really need some more contributors, and we definitely meet all the requirements for a spotlight:

  • The requester should be either an active admin, or link to a discussion with an active admin of the wikia who agrees to the spotlight. (Admin)
  • The wikia should have at least 200 content pages, not counting stubs. Stub, or very short articles (less than about 300 bytes; listed at Special:Shortpages) and articles marked with a stub template should make up no more than a fifth of all pages. (Number of content pages, number of short pages, and articles marked with a stub template)
  • The main page should have at least one picture, and clear links to the most important content. It should not be sysop-protected from editing unless there is a strong history of vandalism; protecting against anonymous editors and new accounts is ok. (Main page)
  • There should be a clear category structure to help readers navigate around the site. Every content page should be in a category (Special:UncategorizedPages should be empty). (List of uncategorized pages)
  • The community should not be in the middle of choosing new admins, or any other upheavals; it should be a stable, friendly place. (Forum and blog posts)
  • The wikia should be using the Wikia welcome tool, signed by admins -- (MediaWiki:Welcome-user should say @latest, @sysop or the name of an admin.) (Welcome tool)
  • The message in the Community Center on Recent Wiki Activity should be customized. (MediaWiki:Community-corner) (Community Center)
  • The wikia should have a customized skin. (Customized skin)
  • The wikia should not use offensive language or include inappropriate images. (List of images)

M.J. Daniels (talkcontribs) 20:41, December 23, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Night World Wiki looks really good in general, but it is just a touch shy of the needed 200 content pages. It has 202 pages total and 15 of them marked as stubs. Please work on strengthening those pages so they can lose their stub templates and let me know on my wall when you are ready for me to check again! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 13:59, January 7, 2015 (UTC)

Alternate Future Wiki (approved)Edit

I am requesting a spotlight for Alternate Future Wiki, using this picture with the description "Write an alternate future history now!" I am the founder, there is 343 pages in total, only a few stubs and almost all pages are categorized. Ismael Perez Ψ (talkcontribsblog) 20:38, December 26, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Alternate Future Wiki looks good and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 03:59, January 21, 2015 (UTC)

Mixels Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi there, I'm Boogly22238, an admin at the Mixels Wiki. I'd like to sign up for a spotlight, perhaps with this picture, as in February Series 4 will be coming, and more later on. Could we use the caption "Hang out with the Mixels!"? Thank you! --Boogly22238, January 2, 2015

I've added Mixels Wikia to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:05, January 21, 2015 (UTC)

Batman: Guardian of Gotham WikiEdit

My name is Brandon Baker and I would like a spotlight for my wikia Batman: Guardian of Gotham.

Hello. Batman: Guardian of Gotham Wiki looks great -- very atmospheric. That said, it has too many stub articles to be spotlighted at this time. Stubs must make up no more than about 1/5th, or 60 pages on the wikia. Right now you have about 90 pages that are shorter than 300 bytes, and most of those are template episode pages with no information. There are handful of slightly longer pages that are also just the template, and those count as stubs as well. Please feel free to ask again when you have had a chance to strengthen the content on your wikia and fill in some of these blank pages with at least a little information. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:14, January 21, 2015 (UTC)

Ellie Goulding third albumEdit

Ellie-Goulding
Love Me Like You Do Cover Instagram

Hi, I'm Azending the admin of: elliegoulding.wikia.com

I was wondering if my wiki can go on spotlight EVEN WITHOUT THE REQUIRED SPOTLIGHT LIST because Ellie is releasing her third album THIS YEAR. One of her singles for Fifty Shades of Grey premiered today: http://elliegoulding.wikia.com/wiki/Love_Me_Like_You_Do_(song) and that means her third album's information will get closer and closer. I was wondering if you could give everyone a heads up that Ellie is releasing her album "Soon"! See here for more info: http://elliegoulding.wikia.com/wiki/Third_album_(album)

If you are (please :D) going to, can you make the title: "Ellie Goulding new album #Soon", the subtitle: "Read all about Ellie's upcoming 3rd album" or something. And, also, can you make the artwork any two shown in the pictures or anything from Ellie Goulding's latest Nike photoshoot here: http://elliegoulding.wikia.com/wiki/Nike or the "Beating Heart cover".

I seriously understand that there needs to be atleast 200 articles, but Ellie doesn't have that many songs.

THANKS! :)

--Azending (talk) 03:12, January 8, 2015 (UTC)

Hi Azending. I'm sorry but this page is only for requesting spotlights for wikias that meet the spotlight criteria. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:19, January 21, 2015 (UTC)

Austin & Ally Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi wikia staff, I would like to request a spotlight for the Austin & Ally Wiki! Austin & Ally is entering it's fourth season and the season four premiere episode premieres January 18th! Season four is actually a big season for Austin & Ally because this season was not guranteed to actually happen and the fans had to fight for it. We trended "#AustinAndAllySeasonFour" many times on Twitter January-March last year. We proved that we deserved the season and the show was picked up. This is also likely the last season for the show since Disney never goes to a fifth season. We would like to use this picture for the spotlight:
Austin & Ally Wiki Spotlight pic

And for the saying underneath, it'd be great if it said "#AustinAndAllySeason4 is here!" It'd nicely reference the thing that played a huge part in bringing the season to TV. :) Thank you! :)

Hello. Austin & Ally Wiki looks great (and congrats on the new season!). I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:27, January 21, 2015 (UTC)


Disney Channel Wiki (approved) Edit

Hello, I'm an admin on disneychannel.wikia.com. On behalf of the administration I would like to request a spotlight for our wiki. The channel is going to have a lot of session premiers in the next few weeks, and I believe that it would be a huge marketing value for Wikia. If at all possible we would like a promotion within the Entertainment hub, just like Austin and Ally had at the Lifestyles Hub. http://austinally.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Asnow89/Season_4_Premiere_Party_Menu. I know that that information doesn't affect a global spotlight, I just wanted to put it out there. Thanks for all your help!

~AwesomeOrange89, Executive Manager on the DC Wiki

Hello. I cannot help with the hub promotion. In terms of a spotlight, Disney Channel Wiki looks pretty good but you do have some uncategorized pages. Please let me know on my wall when you have sorted those out and I will be happy to add the wikia to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 02:50, January 28, 2015 (UTC)
Added! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 05:50, February 2, 2015 (UTC)

United States Counties Wiki (Countypedia) (approved)Edit

Hello. I would like to submit the United States Counties Wiki (Countypedia) http://countypedia.wikia.com/wiki/The_United_States_Counties_Wiki for a spotlight. I have returned on the wiki after a few months of absence and I found out the place was dying. I feel that with the recent Senate elections, people will learn to understand more about our 3,141 counties and how they operate. I would prefer a large county map of the U.S. with the subtitle "Learn about our 3K+ counties!" CalzoneManiac (talk) 01:24, January 21, 2015 (UTC)

Hello. I have added the wikia to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 02:54, January 28, 2015 (UTC)

Star Wars: The Old Republic Wiki Edit

Hi! I'm ShatterClub, and I'm the senior bureaucrat at TOR Wiki. We applied and got a approved for a spotlight back in 2013 (link), and are requesting one again in the hopes that we can draw in more interested users and build a larger community. I've checked us out, and it looks like we fit all the requirements except for the stubs, which is something else we also would like more users for. Aside from that, I think we fit the bill on everything else, but if not, message me and we'll do what we can to fix any lingering problems.

Let me know if this is possible. We look forward to hearing for you! ShatterClub|Message Wall 23:12, January 21, 2015 (UTC)

Hello. TOR Wiki is in generally good shape, although for a spotlight you would need to lower the main page protection to only block new and unregistered users. However the stubs are a problem; 1/5th of your content would be about 800 pages and you have over 1400 marked as stubs. You would need to clean out the category and unmark some of the longer articles before the wikia could be spotlighted. Please let me know on my wall if you do that and want me to check again! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 03:03, January 28, 2015 (UTC)

FlameClan Roleplaying Wiki (approved)Edit

Greetings! I am Flamestar22. I was wondering if it was possible to participate in the Spotlight from this wiki: http://flameclan-roleplaying.wikia.com/wiki/FlameClan_Roleplaying_Wiki. I love to work on Wikia and would be happy if my wikia could attract other users to the Wikia. Let me know if that's possible, thanks! I look forward to your response! Flamestar 22 20:15, January 25, 2015 (UTC)

Hello. FlameClan Roleplaying Wiki looks great in general. The only change needed in order to have a spotlight would be to lower the mainpage protection so it only blocks new and unregistered users from editing. Let me know on my wall when you have done that and I will be happy to add it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 03:08, January 28, 2015 (UTC)

Gravity Falls Wiki (approved) Edit

Hi, I am adding a spotlight request for the Gravity Falls Wiki in preparation for the end of our mid-season hiatus. Gravity Falls comes back February 16th with Northwest Mansion Mystery. I was hoping this photo could be used and the caption "Come and learn about the secrets and mysteries of Gravity Falls!"

Thanks,

The Young and the Restless Wiki (approved) Edit

Hello! I would like to request a spotlight for The Young and the Restless Wiki. The Y&R Wiki is a growing community of fans and editors dedicated to all things Y&R! We would love for our Wiki to become a one-stop source for everything Y&R related. We have recently expanded our Wiki with many new articles and images. We are building up a great community and I would love to attract even more users to our Wiki, who will register and join our budding community.

If possible I would like to use this image in the spotlight with the description "Find out the latest happenings in Genoa City and keep up with all your favorite characters on The Young and the Restless Wiki". I have reviewed the guidelines and found that we meet them all. We do have a few stub pages but we are working on updating those and would love for new contributors to help us with the task. I am an active admin on the Wiki if you have any questions or requests.

Thanks and I look forward to hearing your response! --LehuaRose (talk) 00:40, January 28, 2015 (UTC)


Hello. The Young and the Restless Wiki is in generally good shape -- your main page image map is fantastic! That said, you do have a number of uncategorized pages that would need to be sorted out in order for the wikia to be spotlighted. Please let me know on my wall when you have taken care of those and I will be happy to add the wikia to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 03:15, January 28, 2015 (UTC)

Google wiki (approved) Edit

Hi, I am an admin on Google wiki and would like to add this wiki to the Wikia Spotlights. This wiki was quite inactive for a while, with only 1 admin being active. Then I joined in and started to make the wiki once again alive. We need more contributors to this wiki so the wiki could expand and be fun for every wikian! Thanks!

Munkapedia, the Alvin and the Chipmunks Wiki (2) (approved) Edit

I am re-requesting a spotlight (because of the December bug) for Munkapedia. Our big series launch of ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks is set to air this spring and we want to help get the word out. You can use this image unless a better one appears between then and now.

DEmersonJMFM 14:59, February 6, 2015 (UTC)

Hello. I've added it back onto the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 00:18, February 25, 2015 (UTC)

Hypothetical Hurricanes Wiki (approved) Edit

Hi, I'm one of the admins at the Hypothetical Hurricanes Wiki and I'm requesting for a spotlight to take place for that wiki. It meets about all of the guidelines and lately we've been improving that wiki so it could qualify. I've just categorized the last of the pages that needed categorization (there was once more than a thousand pages in that category) and all of the other guidelines are about met by now. The spotlight would probably improve this wiki's popularity since the number of active users at this wiki is currently a little low (although we have a nice team of admins) and we would really love a more active wiki. So, it would be awesome if you could accept this request, since this wiki is interesting especially for any hurricane enthusiasts out there. --Steve820 |Chat With MeMy Edits 05:46, February 7, 2015 (UTC)

Injustice Fanon Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi! I'm Cartoon44, an active admin of four and I would like to request a spotlight for Injustice Fanon Wiki. We currently have 804 pages, the main page is fully customized with multiple pictures. There is a clear category structure and no pages are uncategorized. The wiki currently has 4 active admins and is a place welcome to all users. We are currently using @latest for the welcome message and have customized the message in the community center under recent activity. We use a customized background and we do not encourage or use any offensive language or inappropriate images. We hope to spotlight the wiki to welcome even more users! Thank you!

Doraemon WikiEdit

Hey there, I'm one of the admins at Doraemon Wiki and would like to request spotlight for the wiki. {{SUBST:User:BloomRocks!/Sig}} 11:27, February 10, 2015 (UTC)

Hello. Doraemon Wiki would need a few tweaks in order to be eligible for a spotlight through this request page. The main page edit protection would need to be lowered to only protect against anonymous editors and new accounts (the move protection is fine). Also the page itself does not contain many links to the content (although it does have lots of featured items which are good); could you add a portal with images and links to characters, anime, manga, games, etc. to help visitors find your content? Finally there are a few too many articles in the stub category; there are nearly 200 which is more than 1/5th of your content -- you would need to untag about 15 of them. Please let me know on my wall if you have any questions or when you have finished this and I can check again! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:59, February 25, 2015 (UTC)

Bad Hair Day WikiEdit

Since the wiki just premiered and I founded the Bad Hair Day wiki, I thought it will be a good idea to put it on wikia spotlight

04:42, February 15, 2015 (UTC)Sammydiego (talk)

Hello. I'm sorry, but in order to be spotlighted through this requests page, wikias have to meet our spotlight criteria, which includes a minimum of 200 non-stub content pages.
