The Ferry Wiki Edit

Hi there!

I'm Erlopez and I am the only administrator of the Ferry Wiki. As you may be able to tell by the name, the wiki focuses on ferries and there companies. Currently, there are only three active users working on my wiki, including myself, so as you can see, awareness is very sparse. All users, however work really hard in making the wiki a nice, welcoming environment and as a team, we have created an attractive place to edit on. On the main page, there are four permanent 'features', the Welcome note, a slideshow of current projects, a weekly featured article and a weekly featured image. Also all pages to my knowledge are under a category. And that's about it!

Erlopez 20:22, August 1, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Ferry Wiki looks like a lot of fun and congratulations on reaching 200 articles! The only issue I see is that you have nearly half of your content labeled as stubs; could you please clean out this category? Ideally there would only be about 25 articles in there. Let me know when you've had a chance to look at this and I'll check again :). -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:59, August 14, 2011 (UTC)

Finished! The article stub count on the Ferry Wiki is now down to barely any articles. User:Erlopez 18:56, September 4, 2011 (UTC)


Hi. I'm sorry I didn't see your response here last week! I've added the wiki to the list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 03:44, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Hi again! Instead of the spotlight saying 'Learn about ferries from around the world', could it please say 'We'll take you there'? Thanks! Erlopez- Leave me a message! 17:24, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

Supernatural Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello. I'd like to put Supernatural Wiki in the spotlight for about a week around September 23, the day Season 7 premieres. Supernatural Wiki currently has 2 active Administrators and a few other contributors and over 700 pages and 1400 images. However we don't have much traffic around the site, so that's why I'm requesting the spotlight for the Wiki. // Hallichester // 09:33, August 2, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Supernatural Wiki looks good -- I love your skin! I'll be happy to put it onto the approved spotlight list, but I can't guarantee when it will appear. My best guess is that if I put it on now it will probably be up around mid-September at the latest; typically after being approved the spotlights go up in 2-4 weeks and run for 2 weeks. I'm guessing that for your purposes, missing by being later is better than being too early. I can either put it on now, or you can remind me on my talk page in a couple of weeks and I can put it on the list then. Let me know what you want to do! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 03:11, August 14, 2011 (UTC)
It's on the list and should be up in a week or two. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:02, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

Bakugan Users Wiki Edit

I am the Head Bureaucrat of Bakugan Users Wiki requesting a Spotlight. We have articles in the 800's which is being added to every week, sometimes days. We don't have many users, so it would be helpful if you could get us some more through a spotlight. Thank You!


- Lord of Pyrus

Hi. Bakugan Users Wiki is clearly growing quickly -- congratulations on reaching 1000 pages. However, the wiki would need some tweaks to meet the spotlight criteria. You would need to drop the main page protection to only protect against anonymous/new user edits. You also have some uncategorized pages that would need to be sorted out. More critically, about half of your content (more than 500 pages) is stub-length (less than 300 bytes), and you would need no more than 200 pages at that length. Please ask again when you have had a chance to strengthen your content and can meet all of the spotlight criteria. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 19:47, August 22, 2011 (UTC)

Sonic the Hedgehog The Movie Wiki Edit

It's new. It needs some attention! Sonicyay2 15:53, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

=/ Sonicyay2 16:17, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. I'm sorry but Wiki's spotlighted through this page must meet all of the spotlight criteria, including 200 content pages. Good luck with your wiki and feel free to ask again when it has had a chance to grow bigger! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 19:57, August 22, 2011 (UTC)

Club Penguin Wiki Edit

I would like to request a Spotlight for the Club Penguin Wiki. I am an active admin there. It has 3,529 pages on it. Though many of our top contributors have left, we are still making this wiki the best that we can. We often update the Community Corner with news and other related items.

--THE RULER AND DICTATOR OF AWESOME HAS ARRIVED SPEAK TO LORD VOLDEMORT... 22:09, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Club Penguin Wiki is in pretty good shape. It looks like you have a handful of uncategorized pages; can you please sort them out? Let me know when you've done that and I will be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 20:16, August 22, 2011 (UTC)

John Carter (Again) (approved) Edit

I am once again reqesting that the John Carter wiki (Johncarter.wikia.com/Barsoom.wikia.com/Warlordofmars.wikia.com) Get a spotlight. Most of the pages are pretty big, we have barely any under 200 bytes, and most arent under 300 bytes . . . . The wikis content is going to become increasingly relevent in the media ,posters for the movie are in theaters and so are trailers, and by december of this year there will be five seperate comic books series concerning the universe on shelves (two by marvel three by dynamite). And I really want to get the message ot there that john carter is not just recycled hollywood trash, it is the source of all the material that has been recycled!!!!!!!!! If I got to choose spotlight times . . .. I wold choose for this wiki to be spotlighted in october or september (whenever the first marvel series is released) and when the movie is released next year in march. ralok 01:59, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Good job working on the content; the wiki looks like it is in good shape now and I can add it too the approved spotlight list. If approve it now it will probably be spotlighted in mid-September. If you want it spotlighted later then you will need to remind me in a few weeks to add it to the list. Either way, let me know what you want to do on my talk page. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:01, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you, I shall endeavour to make the wiki even better before it is spotlighted. ralok 01:31, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

If you read this . . . I think I would like that the spotlight would read "who is John Carter?" and the image to be taken from the john carter trailer, it should be reffered to as the John Carter wiki aswellralok 03:01, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. I can pass along an image if you have one; otherwise they will take it from somewhere on your wiki if possible. I cannot pass along the text of the spotlight. Do you want to be put on the list now or later? -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:14, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

I think I would prefer it to be on the spotlight list now rather than later. That is a real bummer you cant pass along the text. I cant find a picture I would want from the trailer so whatever pictures is decided will be okay with me ralok 17:35, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Ok. I have added it to the list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:21, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

WikiSein (approved) Edit

Hello. I am here to request a spotlight for WikiSein, the Seinfeld Wiki. The Wiki meets all criteria, but definitely needs more users. Plus, I was happy with the last spotlight that brought in many new users. The Wiki has nearly 250 pages, and I have spent time adding to stubs, and categorizing pages. Thanks.

P.S. The Main Page was protected from IPs contributors before my time there, due to a past history of vandalism.  DaRanger | Talk to Me | What I've Done | 14:12,8/6/2011 

Hi. WikiSein looks like it is in great shape and I have added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:31, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

America's Got Talent Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi, I would like to request a spotlight for America's Got Talent Wiki. We have over 200 articles, and very few of them are stubs. It's a new wiki (only about a month old), but it's grown very quickly. It's very relevant right now because of the popularity of America's Got Talent. More than 90% of the articles are heavily categorized and very few are stubs. It meets most of the requirements, and I'm hoping a spotlight would increase its activity.

If this gets approved, this would be the description:

"America... land of the free, and home of the best talent in the world!"

Thanks, Erik10101 02:08, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. America's Got Talent Wiki looks like it is in generally good shape. There are a handful of uncategorized pages; could you sort those out? Also, the main page could use a little bit of sprucing up, and would need at the least a picture added to it to meet the spotlight criteria. Please let me know on my talk page when you have taken care of these issues, and I'll be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:39, August 23, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for cleaning those up. I've added you to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:47, August 23, 2011 (UTC)
Oh. and I'm sorry but I cannot pass along requests for the spotlight wording. I forgot to mention that. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:15, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

39 Clues Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi,

Hi my name is Nilem12. I am a Administrator on 39 Clues Wiki. Since The Medusa Plot is coming out in less than 21 days can you Spotlight this wiki.

Thanks,

Nilem12Talk 22:59, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. The 39 Clues Wiki is still in great shape and I'll be happy to add it back to the approved spotlight list for a 2nd spotlight. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:49, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Redapedia (approved) Edit

Hello there,

I am Zachattack31. I am an administrator on the Redapedia wikia. I was hoping that you could make this wikia into a Spotlight. It is a wikia dedicated to the Redakai card game as well as the animated series Redakai: Conquer the Kairu. It has around 250 pages, so it is small but still relatively new. At first, we had quite a few editors but over time, these editors left and I am currently the only editor/admin who has been doing anything on there the past couple of months. I would really like the Spotlight in order to get more people interested in the wikia and to increase the popularity of the animated series as well as the game. I would really appreciate it.

P.S. This is my first time asking for a spotlight so I hope this is okay. Thanks.Zachattack31 03:28, August 9, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Redapedia looks like it is in good shape and I have added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:12, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry. I don't understand why you posted this link. If you want to update the Beyblade request then please ping my talk page directly (either on Beyblade Wiki or here on central). -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:12, August 23, 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, that was supposed to be to the Wikia. I must've copied the wrong link...sorry about that. Abce2|Talk 'Other things" 22:30, August 26, 2011 (UTC)

The Vampire Diaries Wikia (approved) Edit

Hi Wiki! I would like to recomend Vampire Diaries Wikia for spotlight.It has almost 700 pages and the new season will air in one month..  Blood-dropAlaric SaltzmanTalkContrib 10:33, August 9, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. The Vampire Diaries Wiki looks great and I have added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:41, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Onipex and Pals WikiEdit

The Misadventures of Onipex and Pals is a series created by Ids5621 (A YouTuber) and is based on the video hosting site; YouTube. It was initially created as a comedic side series to All Stars (Another YouTube series), to be released more frequently and to keep input coming into the channel. It revolves around the matoran (characters), Onipex and his annoying friend Jevik.

Jman98 08:00, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Onipex and Pals Wiki looks like a lot of fun; you've clearly worked hard on it. However in order to be spotlighted here, it would need to meet our spotlight criteria, including at least 200 content pages. Good luck building the wiki! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:53, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Avatar & Legend of Korra Wiki Edit

Aang-the-avatar

Avatar & Legend of Korra WikiThe Original Avatar series and the upcoming spin-off

Hi! I am Annawantimes, the leader of Avatar & Legend of Korra Wiki. I know you must be very busy, but I would like you to review my wiki and see if it is ready to be featured on the Spotlight. I would like the picture to the right to be shown, with the text in the caption to be featured as well. (The bold text should be the spotlight's title) If my wiki meets criteria, please let me know. Thank you for your time, AnnawantimesTalk 04:04, August 13, 2011 (UTC)

Once again, you need to have no uncategorised pages in order to get a spotlight. You need to categorise all of the pages found here. And you need to reduce the number of pages with no content, these can be found here and at the start of the list here.--Acer4666 13:48, August 14, 2011 (UTC)

I added content and categorized the pages the other day. I don't understand why the page listing all of this has not updated itself. Hopefully it will soon. Thank for your concern though. AnnawantimesTalk 19:07, August 14, 2011 (UTC)

I Still wish to receive an official response, please. AnnawantimesTalk 19:45, August 14, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. I'm sorry again about missing your original request. Your wiki will still need a few further tweaks to be spotlighted. The main page protection would need to be dropped to protect only against anonymous users and new accounts. Also you have about 80 pages "Awaiting Content", and 7 or so more that are stubs (either short or marked as stubs). I actually believe that you would be better to remove those 80 pages altogether than to have somebody click on them only to see that template, which does not even encourage the reader to add the content as a stub template does, but I will count them as stubs. However the wiki has 350 pages, so the total number of stubs should be 70 or less. So please work on filling in some of this content. Let me know on my talk page when you have had a chance to do this. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:48, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Warrior Cats Roleplay Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi, I'm 4pinkbear, a bereaucrat of Warrior Cats Roleplay Wiki.

I believe my wiki deserves a little spotlight because it isn't the most popular wiki, unfortunately.

And if I may make a request, can the image be:

Wiki-wordmark-warriorcatsroleplay

Thanks a bunch, it'll really help! :3 Violetta50pxRichtofen's one crazy scientist! 13:32, August 16, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Warrior Cats Roleplay wiki is in nice shape in general. You do have some uncategorized pages. could you please sort them out? Let me know on my talk page when you have done so and I will be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:29, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
I've added the wiki to the list! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:26, August 26, 2011 (UTC)

Nerf Wiki Edit

Hello Central Wiki, this is Cpt. Riley. I am an admin representing the Nerf Wiki . Me and my fellow editors have been working really hard these past months to get the wiki up-to-shape. I am requesting a spotlight, mostly so my editors feel accomplished, and that we can attract other editors. This would mean a lot if you concidered us. Best regards, Cpt. Riley. Cpt. RileyLet's Talk 19:29, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Nerf Wiki looks great -- congratulations on reaching 500 articles! It looks like you have nearly 300 pages marked as stubs (over half of your content). Could you please clean this out so there are 100 stubs or less? You also have one or two uncategorized pages in there :). Let me know on my talk page when you have had a chance to do this and I will be happy to look again. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:47, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

The Lion King Wikia (approved) Edit

Hi, I'm Honeyfur, a bureaucrat on The Lion King Wikia. In less than a month, The Lion King will be released to theaters in 3D Diamond Edition. I feel that this is the perfect time to try out for the spotlight. We have an active front page, over 400 articles, a very personalized theme, and tons of pictures on most every article. Here's a link. --Honeyfur Hakuna Matata 03:11, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. The Lion King Wiki is in great shape and I have added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:56, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

Gearspedia the Gears of War wikia. (approved) Edit

Since Gears of War 3 the last Gears of War game of the Delta story arc is coming out in September 20th

  • I’d JacktheBlack am the head Admin of Gearspedia (And been editing for 2008)
  • We have over 1400 plus pages (We are still adding pages from the newest Gears of War book Coalition’s End, New York times best seller btw ;) ).
  • Our category system is based off Wookeeipedia and Halopedia so I’m satisfied with it. But I hope I can make more subcategories.
  • We have a custom skin.
  • Stable leadership.
  • A lot of pages are in locked dock to stop Users from spoiling the ending of Gears of War 3 (it was leaked onto youtube and people spoiled it for one of our Admins already  )
  • Please and thank you for your time.

--JacktheBlack 21:04, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Gearspedia looks like it is in good shape. Could you please lower the main page protection to only block anonymous users and new accounts? Then I will be happy to add it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:37, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
Hi. I've added the wiki to the list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:31, August 25, 2011 (UTC)

Star Wars Games WikiEdit

Hello, I'm an admin on the Star Wars Games Wiki. Currently, the Wiki only has a few editing users, and we would like some more people to contribute. I think that it has all of the criteria needed for Wikia Spotlight. Thanks! - Sam2011 Wiki(Delta Squad Forming Up) 12:01, August 22, 2011 (UTC)

A quick flick through your wiki shows it doesn't meet several criteria - you have uncategorised pages, 697 of your pages are less than 300 bytes (meaning more than 1/5 of your content pages are stubs),and your main page is protected against any editing. PS this isn't the official response, I just don't see how hard it is to check you meet the criteria before posting here--Acer4666 12:14, August 22, 2011 (UTC)
Hi. Star Wars Games Wiki looks like it has a great amount of content, but Acer is correct that it doesn't quite meet the spotlight criteria. The main page protection would need to be dropped to only protect against anonymous users and new accounts. The Community Corner needs to be customized. The automatic welcome tool would need to be re-enabled (Mediawiki:Welcome-user should read @sysop or @latest). There are some uncategorized pages that need to be sorted. You have about 400 pages marked as stubs, and 700 stub-length pages; while there is some overlap the combined number would need to be about 530, or 1/5th of your content. Please ask again when you have had a chance to strengthen the wiki content and can meet all of the spotlight criteria. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 03:00, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

The Dark Tower Wiki (approved)Edit

I would like to request a spotlight for The Dark Tower Wiki. We are a growing wiki, but we could use a few more editors. There is renewed interest in the Dark Tower series because of the recent movie rumors. I believe we fulfill all the requirements for a spotlight. Thanks for your consideration.
--Rolliemoon "I will show you fear in a handful of dust" -T.S. Eliot 20:34, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. The Dark Tower Wiki looks great and I have added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:23, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

LifeMusic WikiEdit

I'm the founder and an admin at LifeMusic Wiki, a wiki on all types of Christian music. We cover everything, from gospel to metal to rap to hip hop. Many of our song articles are categorized as stubs, but they surpass the requirements in the best practices. The only reason they are categorized as stubs is because the only have the lyrics in the article, and our site requires much more to bring an article up from stub status. Anyway, we are the largest Christian music wiki on the web, and I believe a spotlight would boost activity and allow us to grow into a larger, better community. Master Fredcerique 21:57, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

  • Nevermind. I misread the short pages list. :P I'm going through and deleting the hundreds of excess stubs though. Hopefully I'll be done in a week or two. I'll reply here when I'm done. Is that OK? MasterFred 18:02, August 27, 2011 (UTC)
That's fine and I appreciate you letting me know :). Why don't you go ahead and make a new request when you are ready; it is easier for me to keep track of it that way. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:23, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

Nerf Blaster Wiki Edit

Hi, I represent the workers at Nerf Blaster Wiki, a hard working Nerf database. We have 875+ articles, however will be removing several soon. We work very close with Nerf Wiki, however we have articles on different things than them but cover the same topic. As the 14th biggest toy wiki, we have 16 articles with over 5000 bytes, and 124 under 500, which is quite a few. Even though we have many stubs, we are a dedicated community, and one that has the potential to reach 1000 articles. With spotlight more users may come to our site, which only has 4 active users as of now. Thanks again, GG 360 00:04, August 25, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Nerf Blaster Wiki is generally in pretty good shape, but needs a few tweaks to meet the spotlight criteria. Your front page is a little bland -- could you please spruce it up and add some images? You also need to customize your community corner and clean up a few uncategorized pages. Let me know on my talk page when you have taken care of these issues and I will check again. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:34, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

SpongeBob Fanon Wiki Edit

I would like to request a Spotlight for SpongeBob Fanon Wiki, located at http://spongefan.wikia.com. We have set our material to what your guidelines require; we have removed all vandalism, we have 3,000+ articles, and we don't have any content that could be considered offensive. Ponyo Fan 23:48, August 26, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. SpongeBob Fanon Wiki has an impressive amount of content. It looks like it would need some general cleanup to meet the spotlight criteria however. Right now you have more than 1000 uncategorized pages; all of your pages would need to be categorized. Also, more than 1/5th of your content (about 725 articles) is stub-length, or shorter than 300bytes. Please work on categorizing the pages and strengthening or cleaning out the short articles. Let me know on my talk page or put in a new request when you are ready for me to check again. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:06, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

Rocky Raccoon and Forest Friends WikiEdit

Theres my wiki http://rockyraccoonandforestfriends.wikia.com/wiki/Rockyraccoonandforestfriends_Wiki I would like it too have wiki spotlight alought it has only 3 pages.

—This unsigned comment is by Rockytheraccoon (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Hi. Unfortunately in order to be spotlighted through this page, your wiki would need to meet all of our spotlight criteria, including having 200 content pages. Good luck with your wiki! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:16, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

Roller Coaster Wiki (approved)Edit

I'd like to request a spotlight for Roller Coaster Wiki. It follows all the "best practices" and now has improved infoboxes. A pretty significant time has passed now since its last spotlight, and the wiki could use a little boost in popularity. Thanks for your time! MontagnaMagica|Talk 17:26, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

  • I was here checking for a response on my request for LifeMusic Wiki and I saw this request. The wiki looks like a lot of fun. The Monobook skin could use some tweeks, but it's a pretty cool concept. I wish I had time to edit, but LifeMusic Wiki and Wookieepedia take up all my time. Anyway, good luck with the spotlight. MasterFred 17:59, August 31, 2011 (UTC)
Hi. Coasterpedia still looks good and I have added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:33, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

The Amazing Race Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi, I'm Jeff, the admin for The Amazing Race Wiki. We'd love to be featured in a Spotlight. We're up over 500 pages and would love some more buzz! -Ekrubmj 19:43, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. The Amazing Race Wiki looks good and congratulations on reaching 500 articles! You appear to have a few uncategorized pages. Let me know on my talk page when you have straightened those out and I'll be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:49, September 2, 2011 (UTC)
I've added you to the list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 00:12, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

Uncharted wiki (approved)Edit

Hello. I'd like to request a spotlight for the Uncharted Wiki. I know that sometimes these requests can take a bit of time if we don't meet the criteria, so I'm putting this one in early. Ideally, the spotlight would be up at the beginning of November, so if we get approved now hopefully I could leave you a message closer to that time so we can get the spotlight then?

As far as I can see, the wiki meets all of the criteria, except for this:

"The wiki should be using the Wikia welcome tool, signed by admins -- (MediaWiki:Welcome-user should say @latest, @sysop or the name of an admin.)"

Although our MediaWiki:Welcome-user says "@sysop," this isn't what shows up on welcome messages. We use a custom welcome message, which is signed by all active administrators. You can see it here. Can you let me know if this will affect the request.

Apart from this, I think we meet all of the criteria. We currently have 70 pages which are under 300Kb, although most of them are disambiguation pages. Let me know if there's any problems with the request. Thanks for reading! --Klock101 02:29, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Uncharted Wiki looks really sharp and congratulations on reaching 1000 articles! The point of the welcome setting is to make sure the welcomes are being generated automatically; the actual welcome can be customized (and signed) as you wish. So what you have is fine. Spotlights usually go up in about 2 weeks (4 at most) after I approve them. So yes, please make sure the wiki still meets the criteria (uncategorized pages are what are most likely to creep in ) and remind me on my talk page in mid-October. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:28, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

Shake It Up Wiki Edit

I would like to request spotlight for the Shake It Up Wiki. Shake It Up is a Disney Channel series about two best friends as they star as background dancers on a local show. I'm an admin on the wiki and it is very developed and colorful. We would love for it to be advertised to attract more fans.
 ♥KataraFan♥   talk    contribs    blog   20:01, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

(unofficial response) Just to let you know that wikis need to have 200 pages or more to get spotlighted, try to build up the content before you get a proper staff response to this request!--Acer4666 11:18, September 6, 2011 (UTC)
Hi. As Acer said, you need to have 200 non-stub (roughly longer than 300bytes and not marked as stubs) articles in order to meet our spotlight criteria for requests on this page. Please feel free to ask again when you have a few more articles! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:31, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

Clone Wars Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi! I am here to request the Spotlight for Clone Wars Wiki, I am not an admin, soon to be, but I do have the link saying "Yes". We are a little unorganized, But that should be fixed in the next couple of days. If we do, this is the suggested picture:

Wikilogo

Season 4 is coming up, and we thought it would be a good time to do a Spotlight. Here are some links:

  • 1 - The approval
  • [w:c:clonewar|2] - Overall

I hope this is good! -- Evanf (talk) (blog) (contribs)

Just a quick piece of advice before the staff get to this request: you might want to categorise your uncategorised pages (one of the spotlight criteria)--Acer4666 11:16, September 6, 2011 (UTC)
Hi. Thanks for linking to the approval conversation. As Acer says, you have about 40 uncategorized pages. Please let me know on my talk page when you have taken care of them and I will check again. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:48, September 9, 2011 (UTC)
Your wiki is on the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:12, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Wild Ones Wiki (approved)Edit

I'm the bureaucrat of this wiki and I want to request for my wiki to go for spotlight. The link is here. We have reached to 450 pages but the main problem is vandalism. Everything is quite informative and quite sophisticated. Please add our wiki to spotlight so that more people can go to our wiki.

{{SUBST:User:Wildoneshelper/Sig}} 09:40, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Wild Ones Wiki looks like it is in generally good shape. Would you please drop the edit protection on the main page to only block new and unregistered users? That setting would have blocked the vandalism last spring as the account which did the vandalizing was only a day old. You also have a few uncategorized pages; could you please sort them out? Please let me know on my talk page when you have taken care of those two issues and I will be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 03:01, September 9, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for taking care of that. I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 03:30, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

LifeMusic WikiEdit

OK, I believe I've deleted enough stubs. Whew, it was over 1,000 articles! :P But I think the wiki is finally ready. MasterFred 17:59, September 9, 2011 (UTC)

Wow -- that's an amazing amount of work! I hate to say it, but there's one other place the stubs need cleanup. While your short pages list looks ok, you still have nearly 600 pages marked as stubs, and many of them are longer than the 300bytes criteria for stub-length articles. Could you please go through and clean out that category? Either deleting the true stubs and/or removing the tags from longer articles that are in there will work. Clicking around I see a fair number that have at least some lyrics. But I also see some that simply have a big empty page layout with no content filled in; they are longer than 300bytes but definitely stubs. The goal is for the pages < 300 bytes and pages marked as stubs combined to be less than 1/5th of the total content. Let me know when you've had a chance to do some more housekeeping; the rest of the wiki looks great. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:48, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

The Sims Medieval Wiki (approved) Edit

Hi! Im a administrator at the Sims Medieval wiki, and we requested wiki spotlight awhile ago and it was on "hold". We categorized our pages better, and would like to request the spotlight one again.

If we need to do anything else, please let me know and I will be sure to get it done.

Thanks,

Life Matters

Hi. The wiki looks good and I have added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 05:04, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

Alien Conquest Wiki spotlight Edit

Please xcan we have a spotlight for my Alien Conquest Wiki? It is the NO1 Alien Conquest Wiki in the world. Crazed Penguin talk RIP Wiki797 03:58, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. I'm sorry but in order to be spotlighted through this page a wiki needs to have at least 200 non-stub content pages. Please ask again when your wiki has grown a bit! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 05:19, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

TTTE Wiki (approved)Edit

I don't know if it is to early to request another spotlight, but TTTE Wiki would like another spotlight, using the image on the right, linking to this page: http://ttte.wikia.com/wiki/Thomas_and_His_Friends. Could the the title say: Thomas Wiki: Get the new book!. Again, sorry if this is too early. BTW here is the admins permission for me to request this: http://ttte.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Thomasfan Thank You, Toby7 Ding!Ding! 03:15, September 11, 2011 (UTC)
ThomasandHisFriends
Hi. A second spotlight is fine. I've added the wiki to the approved list. I will pass along the image as well, but I cannot guarantee it will be used. Unfortunately right now there is no way to request the title or the link page. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 05:30, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

ALF Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello,

My name is Sam Stokes and I am the administrator of the ALF Wiki. I have worked very hard this year to build the site by adding hundreds of pages of content and hundreds of images. I have also diligently categorized the content and created useful navigation links on the front page and throughout the Wiki.

I am very excited that on September 22, 2011, ALF will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary. For this event, the administrators of two of the biggest ALF fan sites and I have been working on a very special surprise, which includes an exclusive interview with Paul Fusco, the creator and voice of ALF.

I know that it is a little bit late to request a spotlight for September 22, but even if it is spotlighted after that time, we will have the interview posted for people to read by then. We would like to draw as much attention to it as we can, as Paul Fusco has some very special news to share with his fans.

Thanks!

samstokes80 19:50, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, this isn't a staff response but thought I'd give you a heads up that articles are considered "stubs" if they're less than 300 bytes. On the ALF wiki here, you can see that around 400 of your pages are this size, so that means about half your content is stub-size. One of the spotlight criteria is that no more than 1/5 of your pages are this size. Hope you can build up the content!--Acer4666 21:27, September 11, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up. In looking over the responses to some of the other Wikis that weren't approved I noticed that 300 bytes or less was considered a stub. Before, I thought that a stub was merely when the stub tag was present on a page. I consequently looked at the list of short pages with my Admin tools and I am in the process of improving the content by adding additional relevant information and cross references where appropriate in order to reduce the number of stubs to below the 1/5 requirement. - samstokes80 23:13, September 11, 2011 (UTC)
Ok! I've gone through the wiki and filled in missing information, and added cross-references to a number of articles, so that now less than 1/5 of the articles are below 300 bytes. It is now ready to be viewed by Wikia staff. Thank you! samstokes80 15:47, September 12, 2011 (UTC)
Hey Sam. Thanks for getting the wiki into shape. The spotlight for your wiki went live earlier today.  :) -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 03:53, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

The Wheel of Time Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello. Our wiki has done a lot since our last request in July of 2010. Here is a rundown of what has happened.

The main page has been given a makeover. It now includes a slider and two slideshows. The slider showcases the three main characters, the main concept of our series, the largest city in the series, and the latest book. Our first slideshow presents our thirteen main-series books and the second shows all of the main characters. We also have a "Quote of the Day" and a "On this day..." section that changes automatically.

I've go through and built up all of our sub-stubs and clean up some of our stubs as well. Out of 4,945 pages, 892 are stubs. This is a little over 18%. If, perchance, you look at the ShortPages listing, most of them (aside from the chapter pages) will have a template that lets readers and editors know that all that can be found has been.

More users that love The Wheel of Time are always welcome.

Thanks in advance for your consideration and any feedback. ---- Willie - HtS 03:22, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Edit - The count of stubs is taken from this category and the subcategories. -------- Willie - HtS 03:23, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. The Wheel of Time Wiki looks great. I love all the pictures on your main page! Thanks for taking the time to make sure you met all of the criteria, including the stub count :). I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:52, September 24, 2011 (UTC)

Roswell Wiki Edit

roswell.wikia.com

could you please add the wiki to the spotlight list. we haven't got any frequent users and it's taking forever to get it into shape by myself.

PrueForever (talk) 15:50, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

You have two Uncategorized Pages. You may need to add those to categories, because that is needed to be able for spotlights. -- Evanf (talk) (blog) (contribs)
Also, you have too many short pages. Check out here, and you'll see that 120 of your 215 pages are below 300kb. You need to reduce the number of short pages to 15 in order to qualify, or if you create more longer pages the count needs to be below 1/5 of the total pages.--Acer4666 14:49, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
Hi. Roswell wiki looks great; the main page is really well done! As Acer said, the criteria for spotlight requests through this page is to have 200 non-stub pages; so you would need 15 or less stubs, or pages under about 300 bytes. Please ask again when you have had a chance to strengthen the content on your wiki! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 03:04, September 24, 2011 (UTC)

Custom Hero Factory Wiki (approved)Edit

I would like to request a spotlight for Custom Hero Factory Wiki. We are a community of Lego builders who create amazing Hero Factory characters and even write stories about them! All our pages are categorized, and we have 529 articles, with only 49 or so falling under 300KB. All of the other requirements seem to be met as well. If we could get this, it would mean a lot!

King Joe CHFW B'crat, Say somethin to me! 15:18, September 15, 2011 (UTC)
One little thing is to drop the protection of the main page, so that registered users can edit it--Acer4666 15:25, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

Done. King Joe CHFW B'crat, Say somethin to me! 19:11, September 21, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Custom Hero Factory looks great and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. Thanks for checking the criteria before asking! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 03:14, September 24, 2011 (UTC)

Imaginaughts wiki Edit

Hiyas, I'm Golden flame zero, the admin of IW. ATM, there are only a handfull of users on the wiki (Me, u3berleech, Pandaboy2 and Mocha2007andcocoa {Who currently has to stop editing due to bugs in the new editor}), and it would be nice to have a few more users on it. The idea of IW is that you can create something, post it onto the wiki, and create even more stuff to pile on top of the charecter you created in the first place. it is set in a relm called the imagaworld, parralel to ours, which all imaginary creations exist.

Can I please get it spotlighted, (or at least a bit more popular)? Thanks! Golden Flame Zero 05:32, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

You need 200 non-stub pages - currently 100 of your 205 pages are below 300kb, see here. You need to expand those to more than 300kb. You also need to categorise these pages. --Acer4666 06:16, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
Hi. Imaginaughts looks like a fun wiki. However, as Acer said, the criteria for spotlight requests through this page is to have 200 non-stub pages; so you would need 11 or less stubs, or pages under about 300 bytes. Please ask again when you have had a chance to strengthen the content on your wiki! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:06, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

Songpedia (approved) Edit

Songpedia is a wiki all about music with more than 900 articles, it is stable (it is not in the middle of choosing new admins, nor is it in the middle of a merge), it has no stubs (or if you try to check Special:ShortPages, the ones we consider "true" stubs are just 1 - 9). The wiki has a welcome message, that is automatic, and it has a neat custom skin. The wiki has a policy regarding swearing, which allows swearing, but prevents abuse of it, also, we do not allow porn or any other inappropriate images on Songpedia (not even one), the only exception are album covers, and these are rare. I'm Nobody Cares, the most active admin and editor on Songpedia. Oh regarding the art work for the spotlight, I'll be making one, but if I fail to do so, then I might have to rely on you guys for the art work. Thanks!
--.Nobody Cares .TalkContribs. 03:52, September 18, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Songpedia looks good and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:26, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

Avatar wiki (approved)Edit

Hi! We here at the Avatar wiki have been working very hard for a long time, and would like to request a wiki spotlight.

We barely have any stubs,

And 0 uncategorized pages.

Along with a very stable administration, and barely any fights.

We are sure that we would make a good wiki for the upcoming spotlight :)

C000LTalk to me!'

Hi. Avatar Wiki looks good. Thank you for checking with an admin before you requested the spotlight. I have added the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:38, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

Paranormal Activity Wiki Edit

'

Hi there i'm the admin for the recently created Paranormal Activity Wiki :)

The third instalment of this overly popular film series is hitting cinemas on the 20th of October and i believe it should have an advertisement like so many other great wikis :)

Here's the link for the wikia:

http://paranormalacti.wikia.com/wiki/Paranormal_Activity_Wiki

I Have to begin construction on it's many articles but have already inserted a nice logo.

I have requested a theme at Logo Creation which i'm sure when user Fandyllic get's around to it will look great.

Here's the image that i would like to be with the advertisement text: "The Activity Continues October 20th"

Here's the image:

Hi. This isn't a official response, but I thought I'd let you know that for a wiki to have the spotlight, it must meet the correct [1] criteria ( see previous link ) Keep working on your wiki! And don't forget to add categories, work on the background, add new pages, and get a less amount of stubs!

Cheers

C000LTalk to me!

Hi. As C0000L said, wikis need to have at least 200 non-stub content pages in order to request a spotlight through this page. Good luck with your wiki, and feel free to ask again when it has had a chance to grow! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:42, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

Pirates Online Players Wiki Edit

I know a 3rd spotlight is unusual but with the rise in activity on the game during the "Christmas" Season.I would like to request a spotlight for the Wiki for this Time in hope that it will be up in Mid December(not now). If you could make a decision on this and if it would be okay for me to ping you during December when the Game's Activity increases.If the text could be "Join us this Winter in the Caribbean "

--Tama63 18:42, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

Or as I am hosting a Giveaway of Membership of the game a spotlight would be nice in October with the text "Fight Jolly Roger with style this Halloween"

312px-Game_cardHalloween.png --Tama63 20:01, September 24, 2011 (UTC)


Hi. I'm sorry but I cannot approve a wiki 3 months in advance, and as you have just had two requested spotlights it is too soon to have a third in October. Generally speaking we ask wikis to wait at least 6 months to request another spotlight after the first two because the goal is to highlight many different communities around Wikia. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:49, September 25, 2011 (UTC)
No worries :) --Tama63 05:55, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

The Sims Wiki (approved)Edit

Hiya, you may remember that we requested for a spotlight back in June for the release of The Sims 3: Pets. Given that LostInRiverview has officially retired from the wiki, I thought that I should give it a shot at sending in the second request. The Sims 3: Pets will be released in North America on October 18th, so if possible we would like our spotlight to be around about that time. Thank you very much for considering us! GG (talk) 20:35, September 24, 2011 (UTC)

Sure. We'd be happy to give you a 2nd spotlight. I've added The Sims Wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:54, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

Our Picture will be given if we get this spotlight!

Hi. Lego Critics Wiki looks good and I can see the 3 of you have been working hard on it. In order to request a spotlight through this page, wikis need to meet the spotlight criteria, including having at least 200 non-stub content pages. Please ask again when you have had a chance to create more articles! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:09, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. I'm sorry, but in order to be spotlighted through the request page, a wiki needs to meet our Spotlight Criteria, including at least 200 content pages. Please feel free to ask again when you have had a chance to build your wiki! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 01:31, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

SporeWiki (approved) Edit

Hello! I'm Um2k9 and I'm a sysop on SporeWiki. SporeWiki was founded in January 2006 and currently has 1,257 pages dedicated to the Spore franchise, which are well written and categorized, and a huge amount more (There are 113,222 pages in total, including talkpages, etc) dedicated to Spore fan fiction, including the popular Fiction Universe. The wiki also contains 25,332 images, making it visually appealing for new users.

While the wiki still remains very much active by a small community, it has been lagging in activity over the past year, and I really think it deserves a spotlight in order to attract new contributors to the Wiki and to congratulate the efforts of the users that edit there.

Please consider this request.

Thank you,

--Um2k9 - Fight the Future... 18:35, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. SporeWiki looks great, and very well organized for such a broad range of content. I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:28, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

Ace Combat Wiki (approved) Edit

Hello once more. Acepedia, the Ace Combat wiki was spotlighted some months ago. Now, with Ace Combat: Asaault Horizon in the, well, horizon (read as: next Tuesday), I would like the site to be SL'd once more. We're looking for more editors to polish up the place.

Hi. Acepedia looks good and I have added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 02:34, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

Anime and Manga Wiki (approved)Edit

Hey! :D

I'd like my wiki to be spotlighted on the Wiki Spotlight. My wiki has over 200 pages and I am looking for new editors. If you need a picture I've got 4 that you may want to use.

If you only need one than use The Sengoku Basara one. Thanks! :D Lily the Girl who Loves Anime & Manga 22:57, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. Awesome Anime and Manga Wiki looks really good -- congratulations on reaching 200 articles. In order to be spotlighted it would need to have the protection level on the main page dropped to only protect against editing by anonymous users and new accounts. There are a small handful of uncategorized pages that need to be sorted. Finally you would need to have 200 non-stub content pages; if you look at Special:ShortPages there should be no more than 12 pages shorter than 300bytes. Let me know on my talk page when you have taken care of these issues and I will check again. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 22:12, October 19, 2011 (UTC)
Good job! I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 04:14, November 8, 2011 (UTC)
