New requests are answered roughly once a week.




Counter-Strike Online WikiEdit

Hi Merrystar. I would like to apply Counter-Strike Online Wiki again for another spotlight with this picture and caption "Envy Mask: The Meeting with Dr. Rex" for the new update release. Thanks for everything. --ConTraZ VII 00:05, September 4, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. I'm sorry, but we limit the number of spotlights a wikia can request to about two per year. This would be your third in about 3 months :). Please feel free to ask again next May or June! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 02:53, September 11, 2014 (UTC)

America's Got Talent Wiki Edit

Hi, America's Got Talent Wiki (agt.wikia.com) could use a spotlight, with the show's newest season having its season finale next week.

Erik10101 (talk) 17:33, September 12, 2014 (UTC)

Hi. America's Got Talent Wiki is still in great shape, however the spotlight will not go up until the start of October if I approve it today. Each wikia can request two spotlights a year and you requested your last one in June. So if you would like a spotlight in October we can do that. Or you can wait and ask again when the next season starts. Let me know what you want to do! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 01:52, September 17, 2014 (UTC)

Aikatsu Wiki (approved)Edit

"Dashing off with my very own burning-passionate idol activities!"
Hi! I am an administrator of Aikatsu Wiki, would like to request a spotlight for the wiki on October, to celebrate the third TV series and the upcoming movie!
Hopefully we can have a spot for it!

Alwawmo (talk) 14:39, September 13, 2014 (UTC)

Aikatsu Wiki look sgood and I've added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 02:19, September 17, 2014 (UTC)

Natsume Yuujinchou Wiki (approved)Edit

Hai there, I'm one of the admins at Natsume Yuujinchou Wiki and would like to request spotlight for the wiki. The last spotlight was last year, and since the manga is still ongoing, with the latest volume published on 5th September, will this wiki eligible for the spotlight? Thanks.

MiyanloveMessage Me 03:44, September 17, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Natsume Yuujinchou Wiki looks good and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 03:48, October 1, 2014 (UTC)

Minecraft Fan Ideas Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello, I'm SilverHexxitFights, bureaucrat of the Minecraft Fan Ideas Wiki. We requested a spotlight last year, and it was approved, but I never saw it appear (?)

I'd like to request one now. Our wiki is about fan idea submissions for video game Minecraft.

I don't have a specific image request, but I'd like the text to be "Ever had an idea that just had to be added to Minecraft? Submit it here!"

Silver (talk) 01:56, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry you didn't see your last spotlight, but I've added you to the approved list for a new one! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 03:54, October 1, 2014 (UTC)

Khan Academy Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello! We have over 1,000 pages on our wiki, which more than qualifies us for spotlight! VirusKA (talk) 00:06, September 23, 2014 (UTC)

Khan Academy Wiki looks good and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:06, October 1, 2014 (UTC)

Nanatsu no Taizai Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello, I'm an admin at Nanatsu no Taizai Wiki, and I would like to request for a spotlight. If possible, I would like it to be some time around October 5th when the anime begins broadcasting. For the image, I would like to request using this. The wikia has had a spotlight previously, so I'm confident that we meet the criteria. A quotation like "The anime adaptation premieres on Oct 5th" would be perfect. Thanks. Roboartitec ~ Message Favicon.png Favicon.png Favicon.png Favicon.png 11:27, September 25, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. I'd be happy to add the wikia back into the approved spotlight list. It probably won't go up by October 5th though -- more likely around the 15th. Let me know if that is a problem! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:11, October 1, 2014 (UTC)

The Pokemon Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello. We are ready to make the spotlight for the Pokemon Wiki. We'd like if we had two spotlights. First one would be around these days and I ask that this page is linked. The second one would be later, though I'll make sure to warn just when that would happen. The deal is the new game, Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire is coming out next month. We want the best commerical for the Wiki as possible that might even give something for the guys at Bulbapedia to think about.

Oh, and this is a separate wiki than this one. Energy X 19:38, October 9, 2014 (UTC)

Since time passes by, could you, before 21st November, launch another spotlight and link to this page? Energy X 10:08, October 18, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. I've added Pokémon Wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:08, October 22, 2014 (UTC)

Custom Cards is a fan site based on the Japanese game Yu Gi oh, in which is based on making and showcasing custom cards to let people know about them, were' almost having like 200 pages since opening, this site enables all real and custom card frames (and it is open to add more custom ones), also it is open for fan-made characters, stories, We also present interesting ideas for archetypes, characters, cards, or even a custom type.

Hello. I'm sorry but you must have 200 non-stub (longer than 300 bytes) content pages in order to be spotlighted through this request page. You are almost there! Let me know on my wall when you reach 200 pages and I will check again. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:09, October 22, 2014 (UTC)

Eurovision Song Contest Wiki (approved)Edit

Greetings! I am the founder on the Eurovision Wiki and I'd like to have it spotlit because next year is the 60th contest held in Austria, and the national finals season is starting up. Also, we are looking for more contributors, and hopefully some people can see this and come along! 

  • I'm the founder
  • 358 articles in total as of typing this, no real stubs due to templates but the main page is the shortest page
  • The main page has a slideshow of images, and links to each contest, a featured article, news RSS... and is not sysop-protected.
  • No upheavals as there are too few users
  • Welcome-user and Welcome-message-wall-user
  • Special:UncategorizedPages is empty as of typing this
  • Community Corner is a bit quiet due to lack of users.
  • No inappropriate images or language is used as far as I know, as it is prohibited because Eurovision is a light-entertainment family show, but I'm not sure of Jemini and their poses.

Thank you for taking your time, and I await your response I.eat.Goopys.carbonara talkEurovision Wiki 22:06, October 12, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Eurovision Song Contest Wiki looks good, and I appreciate your careful response to the spotlight criteria. I have added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:22, October 22, 2014 (UTC)

Hello! Project Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello, I'm WonderBuono!, head admin/bureaucrat of Hello! Project Wiki. I would like to request our wiki for the Spotlight. With over 2,000 articles, Hello! Project Wiki seeks to provide as much info as possible on the idol groups under Hello! Project. We're very fast about adding new info, too. Thanks for reading; I hope we are approved. :) WonderBuono! (talk) 20:49, October 18, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Hello! Project Wiki looks good and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:28, October 22, 2014 (UTC)

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

I know these requests sit for roughly a month before a spotlight so I'll add this now. Christmas is coming up (perfect time for The Chipmunks) so I'm requesting our spotlight to start the first or second week in December. You can use this image (the bottom of the image can be cropped if needed).

DEmersonJMFM 16:34, October 22, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Munkapedia looks great but if I add it to the approved spotlight list now it will go up at the beginning of November. You will have to remind me on my wall to add it to the list after November 15th for it to go up at the start of December. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 01:32, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

The Backyardigans Wiki (approved) Edit

Hi! The Backyardigans Wiki is getting better and better every day, now with 1800+ pages (all factual and the best quality they can be). It was featured on the Wikia homepage in 2011 after I won the Wikis of 2010 contest and has had spotlights before, so the admins there (including me, the creator) know how to handle it. The Backyardigans itself could also use some recognition as its tenth anniversary was October 11, and it has not aired on TV since 2013 so users coming to the wiki are getting less and less...thanks for reading the request! - Sandy Cheeks (talk) 00:25, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

P.S. You could use any image of The Backyardigans, but some suggested ones are here and here as they reflect the series as of 1998 and we are trying to show the show's history. --- Sandy Cheeks (talk) 00:26, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. The Backyardigans Wiki looks good and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 01:43, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

Call of Duty Wiki (approved) Edit

Hi, I'm RisingSun2013 from the Call of Duty Wiki and I would like to nominate it for a spotlight. I'm not an admin there but I got consent from a bureaucrat there to nominate it for a Wikia Spotlight. It has a great community and I think it definitely deserves to be featured. RisingSun2013 01:46, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Callof Duty Wiki looks good -- thanks for getting the bureaucrat's approval for the request. I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 00:40, October 30, 2014 (UTC)

Godfather Five Families Wiki (approved)Edit

I"m admin on the http://godfather5f.wikia.com/wiki/The_Godfather_Five_Families_Wiki, and I'm requesting a spotlight, the reason I want a spotlight is because there isn't enough active users other than myself and Man Eating Smurf Starkiller131 (talk) 06:36, October 30, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Godfather Five Families Wiki looks great and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:28, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Im a bureaucrat for this wiki, and I'd like to request a spotlight. We have a fun and welcoming community with active admins and users. We'd love to get a spotlight so that more people can enjoy it like we have. :) We've had one in the past, but it's been awhile. Thank you!

Hi. I'd be happy to put Dumbledore's Army Roleplay Wiki back on the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:44, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

Zombiepedia (approved)Edit

Hi merrystar i noticed that the number of new editors per month has been at all time low so i thought a spot light would help and off topic what do those numbers like (9/13) mean in upcoming spotlight section thanks!

karanmd (talk) 10:05, November 1, 2014 (UTC)


Hello. Zombiepedia is in generally good shape. Could you please customize the Community Corner? Let me know when you have done that and I will be happy to add it to the approved spotlight list.
The numbers are the date on which I approve each wikia for a spotlight. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:50, November 5, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing that - I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 02:19, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

Wikiminaj (approved)Edit

So this is about Wiki Minaj: http://nickiminaj.wikia.com/ and Nicki is releasing a new album in forty days. Would you mind putting the wiki on spotlight atleast 3 weeks before the release date which is December 15: http://nickiminaj.wikia.com/wiki/The_Pinkprint? The new album is called The Pinkprint and this is the deluxe version of the cover:

Best practices

When you request a spotlight, your wikia should follow these best practices:

  • 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. Yep ~ temporary though!
  • 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. Yep!
  • 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. Yep
  • 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). Yep
  • The community should not be in the middle of choosing new admins, or any other upheavals; it should be a stable, friendly place. Yep
  • 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.) Yep
  • The message in the Community Center on Recent Wiki Activity should be customized. (MediaWiki:Community-corner) Yep
  • The wikia should have a customized skin. Yep!
  • The wikia should not use offensive language or include inappropriate images. About that. Now, Wikiminaj does have inappropriate languages and images. :/

--Azending (talk) 04:23, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

Hello. Wikiminaj looks good and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. It should go up either during the middle of November or beginning of December. -- Wendy (talk@Wikia 04:58, November 5, 2014 (UTC)
