Alice in Wonderland wikiEdit

Alice

This should be the spotlight image. The text should be: Enter Wonderland.

Hey! I am Waterwecna, a bureaucrat in Alice in Wonderland wiki! As far as I know, it hasn't received a spotlight yet. I and the other admins have been working hard on it for the last 3 months. It has over 200 pages and over 800 images. Also, it has a customized skin and looks a lot different than most wikis out there. Over the past few months we have gotten quite some new users, but our community is still really small so we could definitely use a spotlight.

Have a nice day,

ฬคtєгฬєςภค 17:11, June 15, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Alice in Wonderland Wiki looks great; the custom skin is very nice. The only issue for a spotlight is that you need to have 200 non-stub pages; since you only have 220 pages total, that means no more than 20 stubs. Stubs are either very short pages (<300 bytes) and/or pages that include a "stub" template. You don't really have very many -- my rough guess is if you cleaned out your stub category you would just need to expand about 10 other short articles and you would be good for this particular criterion. Let me know on my wall if you have any questions, and when you have had a chance to add to the pages, and I'll check again. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:21, June 27, 2012 (UTC)
Awesome job cleaning those up -- I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:41, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

The Sims Wiki (approved) Edit

My username is LostInRiverview (talk), and I am an administrator on The Sims Wiki. We've held a community discussion regarding getting a spotlight near the end of August into the beginning of September. This would be to tie into the release of The Sims 3: Supernatural which is set for a September 4th release in N. America (Sept. 7th internationally). We've gotten spotlight about once a year for the past couple years, and our community and admins are ready for the influx of traffic. We aren't planning on making any huge changes to wiki operation in the near future, except the removal of player stories (which will actually drastically reduce the number of pages that show up on our 'stubs' list). We may add a couple new administrators but that's relatively routine for a wiki of our size. Please let me know if you've got any questions or concerns, or else you can drop a message off on our Community Portal talk page (our main wiki discussion page) if you want to ask something directly to the community.

Thanks in advance for the consideration! -- LiR speak ~ read 19:51, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. The Sims Wiki is in good shape. Please remind me on my wall in a couple of weeks (roughly two weeks before you want the spotlight to be up) and I will add it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:57, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

Two requestsEdit

Angry birds craptastic adventures wiki has hardly any editors. its a decent wiki, but we need more people. and annoying orange wki used to have loads of editors, but now has hardly any perminant ones.Darkapple 16:45, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I'm sorry but Angry Birds Craptastic Adventures Wiki does not meet our spotlight criteria, which include 200 non-stub content pages.
Annoying Orange Wiki is in fairly good shape to meet the spotlight criteria. You do have a fair number of uncategorized pages that need to be sorted out. Also, you should probably update your Community Corner as it links to a wiki that doesn't exist. Let me know on my wall when you have taken care of those issues, and I will be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:47, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

Everypedia Edit

I want to reccomend my wiki, Everypedia. However, it is called Metal fusion beyblade wiki, i want to change that, but it has over 900 articles

Hi. Can you give me a link to the wiki and sign your post? Otherwise I am not sure who is asking for what wiki :). Let me know on my wall when you have added the information. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:50, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

Alien Anthology Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi, I would like to have more contributors to the wiki as their is only a few.

The wiki already changed alot since its founding Dino crisis fan 20:52, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Alien Anthology Wiki looks fantastic -- I love your custom skin! The only thing I see is that the main page is sysop protected. Could you please drop the protection to only block edits from new and unregistered accounts? Let me know on my wall when you've done that and I'll be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:45, July 27, 2012 (UTC)
I've added it to the list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:45, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

Mech Mice Fanon Wiki Edit

The Mech Mice Fanon Wiki meets all of the requirements, except for the 200 article needed. I am the only admin and active user there, and we really need some more users! If it were to be put in the Spotlight, I'd want the caption to be: "Make anything fictional about the upcoming game Mech Mice!". And maybe the the image could be this:

Mmfw-spotlight

-- User:Feey1 I am FEEY1. Speak to me! 20:47, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I'm sorry, but in order to be spotlighted through this request page, wikis must meet the spotlight criteria, including 200 content pages. That is why we have the criteria. Any spotlighted wikis you see with fewer pages did not request a spotlight; they were chosen to be spotlighted by the content team staff because they are of some current interest (eg a new movie) and thus do not need to meet the criteria. Please feel free to ask again for a spotlight when your wiki has grown a bit more! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:49, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Avengers Earths Mightiest Heroes Wiki (approved)Edit

Please Spotlight The Avengers Earths Mightiest Heroes Wiki. If there is anything that doesn't match the standards, please let me know! Thanks :D

--Ji Robinson ~Talk~ ·Contribs·   05:21, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Wiki looks good and meets all the criteria. I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:58, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

My Babysitter's a Vampire Wiki (approved) Edit

Our wiki meets all of the criteria and season begins on June 29 so we want to be spotlighted for that. Thank you.  ♥KataraFan♥   talk    contribs    blog  

15:24, 26 June 2012
Hi. I am so sorry I did not see your request and answer it earlier; I have no idea how it got "out of order" like this. The wiki looks great and, although it will not be near the start of the new season, I have added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:15, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL Wiki (duplicate answerd above)Edit

Hello! My name is Hunter, and I am the head admin of Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL Wiki. See, a new Yugioh series is coming up and what better way to tell everyone about it than a Spotlight! Our wiki, the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL Wiki, follows all of the criteria and requirements for a Spotlight though there is one problem. About the Short pages, we simply have too many short pages in our wiki. Well only about 500 are actual legit short pages, and the other 500 have over 500 bytes so I do not know how the remaining 500 are Short pages when they clearly are not.

The wiki is here:http://yugiohzexal.wikia.com/wiki/Yu-Gi-Oh!_ZEXAL_Wiki.

Kickin' It Wiki (approved) Edit

Requesting spotlight for the Kickin' It Wiki as soon as possible please.
 ♥KataraFan♥   talk    contribs    blog  

23:00, July 13, 2012 (UTC)
Hi. Kickin' It Wiki looks good and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 06:17, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

Adele Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi, I am the head administrator on the Adele Wiki (http://adele.wikia.com) as well as the creator of the wiki. We have 204 articles, and while some of them could be considered stubs due to the lack of information, I could've swore I read that if all the information you can possibly find on the topic is in the article, it's a stub, even if it's short. Assuming it is, we're in the process of trying to expand some of the articles, but there isn't a lot of expansion possible because of the limited information we can find on a lot of the articles. Anyways, though, we have 3 administrators (we had 4 but were forced to remove one's rights, as it had been months since she edited), we have our own custom skin, we don't use offensive language (you may see an occasional swear word in lyrics or in a quote said by Adele, as she has been known to have a potty mouth outside of her music), and to top it all off, we even have an EXCLUSIVE interview with one of her touring guitarists, Tim Van Der Kuil, which we posted on the wiki only a few months ago. Besides, now would be a great time to ask for more contributors to come to the wiki because there isn't a lot of new fresh material coming out for awhile because of her pregnancy, but we are constantly updating the fans on the wiki with the latest Adele news (specifically involving her pregnancy), It is a very friendly community and we are very welcoming, and we would love to get a spotlight to help more people come to the wiki. :) Thank you so much for your time and efforts. ---Tsu'tey♫ (talk) 14:03, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

Hi! (I am not staff but I sometimes help out on spotlights), you have 0 uncategorized pages, 0 article stubs, looks pretty good, you are ready to go, just wait for the staff's approval! --Evanf (Talk) 22:25, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks so much!!!(: ---Tsu'tey♫ (talk) 14:32, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. The wiki looks good and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 06:23, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you so much, I really appreciate it. :) ---Tsu'tey♫ (talk) 13:53, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

Adventure Time Super Fans Wiki (approved) Edit

http://adventuretimesuperfans.wikia.com/

Hello. I'm an admin at Adventure Time Super Fans Wiki. ATSF Wiki is like the Adenture Time wiki exept it is less of an ecyclopedia and more of a community place. You are allowed to put opinions and fan art on the pages. Really cute RandomKitten Gold tabby 2 22:23, July 21, 2012 (UTC)

Hi there, (I am not staff I just sometimes help out on spotlights) You have 5 uncategorized pages and you need to categorize them to get a spotlight, and you have no stubs, so all you need to fix is the categories and you can tell us you did under this, thanks! --Evanf (Talk) 22:23, July 27, 2012 (UTC)
Hi. The wiki is in good shape and I've added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 06:34, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

Heromania WikiEdit

I'm the founder of The Heromainia Wiki and I think my wiki should be put in a spotlight because in under 4 mounths it has 380 pages and I think we can only go up from there. the was created for fans who were tired of seeing DC and Marvel heroes every where so I created the wiki so their characters can be seen.Truth™ (talk) 00:09, July 24, 2012 (UTC)Truth™

Hello, (I am not part of staff, I just help out and look for things) You have Uncategorized Pages and they all need categories before you can request, please get add categories to the ones without. That is all that I can spot. Thanks :) --Evanf (Talk) 22:12, July 27, 2012 (UTC)
Hi. That's a fun idea for a wiki and it looks like you've made a great start on it. For the spotlight could you please add some links to your main content categories on the main page, and then lower the protection level to only stop editing by anonymous users and new accounts? You also have some uncategorized pagees that need to be sorted out as noted by Evanf. Let me know on my wall when you've taken care of these issues and I'll check again! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 17:01, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

Harry Potter Fanfic Wiki Edit

I'm the founder of Harry Potter Fanfic and would like to request a spotlight for my wiki. I'm pretty sure that it covers the criteria. It's a small and relatively unknown site. There are very few active users and so we've had to work very had to reach 200 pages. I would like this spotlight in the hope of gaining some publicity and new users. I would greatly appreciate it if you considered my wiki for a spotlight position. It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live 11:09, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

Hi there, (I am not staff I just help out to see if there is anything) Well, you have 1 uncategorized page, you may need to fix that, and someone deleted the category for Article stubs. Well, that seems the only thing that I could spot. Thanks :) --Evanf (Talk) 22:17, July 27, 2012 (UTC)
Hi. Harry Potter Fanfic Wiki is in pretty good shape, and congratulations on reaching 200 pages! You do have about 12 pages that are "stub length" or shorter than 300 bytes -- you would need to work on strengthening those so you have 200 non-stub pages. Please let me know on my wall when you have expanded those pages! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 17:19, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

Cheevo Archive Wiki Re-request (approved) Edit

Quote: Play the latest bestselling game on Wikia's first Minecraft server, CheevoCraft!

Cheevo Archive Wiki is re-applying for spotlight due to the New Minecraft and Teamspeak servers we now have. Cheevo Archive Wiki is hoping to regain Spotlight priveleges in order to make the Minecraft Server and Teamspeak a Wikia-wide project.

The server is still in Beta and we have the Server's rules and IP Addresses published on our Wiki. Currently the server is named CheevoCraft, and we are hoping that this can be put into spotlight or to become a joint project with Wikia.

We hope to hear from the Spotlight Team, Merrystar, and/or Wendy!

Thanks,

Community Manager Cheevo_Archive_Wiki_Small.png Tawatson 01:11, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Hi there, (I am not staff but I help out on spotlights) You have 9 uncategorized pages, you need to fix that, and the stub count is good (2 stubs). It looks as all you need to fix is the uncategorized pages, and you can rerequest it (or say you have categorized all of them) Thanks! --Evanf (Talk) 22:20, July 27, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your feedback. All issues with the Pages being uncategorized have been resolved, awaiting response from Merrystar or Wendy
Hi. Cheevo Archive is still in good shape and I've added it to the approved spotlight list for a 2nd spotlight. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:48, August 16, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks again Merrystar, I have attached to the right the Background of the suggested photo from the admins,

Carrie Underwood Wiki (approved) Edit

Hi! Making a request for the Carrie Underwood Wiki

This is the official wiki for American country music singer-songwriter and American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood.

Carrieunderwoodfanforlife (talk) 04:54, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Carrie Underwood Wiki looks good and congratulations on reaching 200 pages! In order to meet the spotlight criteria, I do need to ask you to lower the mainpage protection to only protect against editing by new and anonymous users. Let me know when you have taken care of that and I'll be happy to add it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:56, August 16, 2012 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for letting me know. The problem should be fixed now. Carrieunderwoodfanforlife (talk) 01:28, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:35, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

X-Men Movies WikiEdit

Wolverinebanner1
I would like to make a request to add this wiki to a spotlight since The Wolverine is now filming. I have had a spotlight before and I have expanded since then so I think a spotlight would be a great thing and I should meet the criteria. I want the spotlight to go to The Wolverine page with this picture. Thanks New Captain (talk contribs count) 07:12, July 31, 2012 (UTC)
Hi. The wiki looks great and it has grown nicely! In order to meet the spotlight criteria some of those new pages would need to be fleshed out a bit; right now you have about 180 stub-length pages (shorter than 300 bytes), and it would need to be no more than 1/5th of the total content, or 120. Please let me know on my wall when you have had a chance to work on this! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:08, August 16, 2012 (UTC)

Ghostbusters Wiki (approved)Edit

GhostbustersSpotlightimage

Suggested image for spotlight.

Hi again. I would like to make a request that Ghostbusters Wiki be Spotlighted sometime during October. Naturally, right before Halloween is the most likely time to see interest in ghosts and supernatural fiction. I also went ahead and found a image to suggest for the spotlight. However, if they have other ideas for a image, I see no problem with it. Thanks for your time.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  11:33, July 31, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. The wiki looks great and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. The spotlight will go up in a week or two; but you can ask for a second one in October if you wish. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:19, August 16, 2012 (UTC)
October is the best time for getting new users/viewers at Ghostbusters wiki. I'm hoping for a spotlight then if we can get one then. Thanks for approving the spotlight!  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  04:26, August 16, 2012 (UTC)

[GTA V Wiki][1]Edit

There has been much progress on the GTA V Wiki since the last spotlight request as we have more than doubled our pages and photos, Improved links and improved the current pages. We really need editors on the wiki and with the spotlight we belive that will do it. Thankyou

Joshualeverburg1 (talk) 20:06, August 1, 2012 (UTC)

-Addmin.

Hi. Congratulations on reaching 100 articles! I'm sorry though, but in order to be spotlighted through this page you need to get up to 200 articles, and to meet all of the other spotlight criteria. Please keep working on the wiki and have an admin ask again when you meet the criteria! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:21, August 16, 2012 (UTC)

RedapediaEdit

I would like to request a Spotlight for Redapedia. It does not have any uncategorized pages, and should not have too many stubs.

http://redapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Redapedia

Abce2|Talk "Other" 04:15, August 3, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. You erased half of this request with the comment "nevermind then". Did you still want me to check for a spotlight on this wiki? If so, please let me know on my wall. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:29, August 16, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know you do want the spotlight. Redapedia is in good shape generally and just needs a few tweaks to meet the spotlight criteria. Could you add some content links on the main page? Right now you have links to "featured" stuff, but it would be nice to have links to major categories (like cards, characters, etc.). While you are at it, perhaps you could update the poll? It says it is the October poll and is dated February, but by any standards it makes the wiki look like nobody is there very often... Similarly, could you please update the community corner, which talks about things that "will happen soon" in summer 2011? Finally you have just a few uncategorized pages that need to be sorted out. Let me know on my wall when you have touched up these things and I'll be happy to spotlight the wiki. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:24, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

Justin Bieber WikiEdit

Justin Bieber released his new album, Believe, and it needs to be spotlighted again. We need our wiki to be spotlighted again. --Roxyme

Hi. I'm sorry, but in order to be spotlighted through this page (by request) you need to meet all of our spotlight criteria, including at least 200 non-stub content pages. Please keep working on the wiki and ask again when it has grown a bit more! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:32, August 16, 2012 (UTC)

Marvel Cinematic Universe Wiki (approved)Edit

I would like to request a spotlight for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Wiki. I have 200 content pages and there are three active admins (including me). The wiki has gone through a design by JoePlay which I think was really good. Please take a look and respond as soon as possible, thanks :) New Captain (talk contribs count) 07:22, August 7, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Marvel Cinematic Universe looks great (love JoePlay's work!). It just needs a few tweaks to meet the spotlight criteria. Could you please customize the Community Corner? Also you have a few uncategorized pages. Please let me know on my wall when you have taken care of these issues and I'll be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:37, August 22, 2012 (UTC)
Ok, The pages are categorized and the Community Corner is customized now. New Captain (talk contribs count) 07:52, August 22, 2012 (UTC)
I'm so sorry I didn't see this before; I've put the wiki on the approved list :). -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:59, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

Medaka Box Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello, I am the Admin of the Medaka Box Wiki. We haven’t had a spotlight before, but we’ve nearly reached 500 content pages, and the wiki should meet all the requirements of the best practices criteria. If there is anything else that needs to be done to make the wiki eligible, please let me know. Thank you.

--Whistle9 (Talk) 01:42, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Medaka Box Wiki looks good and I have added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:42, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

Pockie Ninja WikiaEdit

Hi- were are a Wikia that has been active for a while, but we don't have so many users. I have tried to get a bit of publicity for us, but to no avail. I would appreciate if we managed to get a Spotlight on the Wikia, or at least get some pointers that really would give us a push towards the Spotlight!

www.pockieninja.wikia.com

Thanks!

{{SUBST:User:SapphireOfNeptune/Sig|14:40,8/10/2012}} 14:40, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Pockie Ninja Wiki looks good in general. It does need a few tweaks to reach the spotlight criteria. The main page edit protection would need to be dropped back to only protect against anonymous/new users. Also there are about 50 uncategorized pages that need to be sorted out. Finally, there are about 60 pages that are stub-length (shorter than 300 bytes) right now; in order to be spotlighted you would need 200 non-stub pages, so only 35 pages can be that short. Please let me know when you have had a chance to sort out the main page and categories, and expand some articles, and I will check again. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:49, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

Wigglepedia Edit

Wigglepedia has over 200 pages, no uncategorized. It is good for the spotlight. Also make this the image: TheWigglesinCelebration!PromoPicture
Also the description should be "Get Ready to Wiggle!"
Jacob Wiggle 01:37, August 12, 2012 (UTC)

I Don't Want To Be Rude But You Skipped My Request.

Jacob Wiggle 06:33, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

This request was initially made on August 12th, as can be clearly seen in the page edit history. I did not skip the request; it will be answered in order with the rest of the requests on this page. Do not try to tamper with the date or placement again or I will deny the request altogether. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 05:29, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
For the sake of speeding things along, I'll say now, it doesn't qualify. So long as there's even one uncategorized page, it's no-go, but more than that is the number of short pages. There are well over 800 pages on there that are less than 300 bytes and that's no-go - it has to be 20% or less of the wiki and with that number you're sitting at more like 35%. On a side-note, that color scheme of bright green on bright yellow is especially hard on the eyes. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:13, August 20, 2012 (UTC)
I Fixed All That Up. I Hope It Gets Accepeted! =D

Jacob Wiggle 04:07, August 21, 2012 (UTC)

You fixed up the color scheme, but you still have uncategorized pages and you're still sitting at over 800 pages of 300 bytes or less. ProfessorTofty (talk) 20:43, August 21, 2012 (UTC)
I'm Trying To Fix The Uncategorized Problem, But People Keep On Adding Pages Without Pages. Jacob Wiggle 03:14, August 22, 2012 (UTC)
Hi. It looks like you've taken care of most of the uncategorized pages -- great job! However, you do still have over 800 stub-length pages (shorter than 300 bytes); you would need no more than 560 to meet the spotlight criteria of less than 1/5th of the pages being stub-length. Please let me know when you have strengthened the content so you have 560 or fewer stub-length pages and I will check again. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:00, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

Robotech Saga Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi, I'm an admin at Robotech Saga wiki. We're a surprisingly complete wiki that we would love to promote. We have over 600 pages and all of our pages are categorised. We have a loving admin staff that's ready to bring anyone in. We would love a spotlight, perhaps themed after the Robtoech: Love Live Alive project. OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 02:22, August 13, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Robotech is in great shape for the most part but would need a couple of tweaks to meet the spotlight criteria. Could you please spruce up the mainpage? It has a lot of "starter" info but it would be great if it had more images and some links to the main content on the wiki (eg. a character portal). Also you have 260 pages in your stub category; there should be no more than about 130 pages marked as stubs on the wiki. Can you please clean that category out a bit? Let me know on my wall when you have had a chance to work on this and I'll check again. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:07, August 22, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for taking care of those things. I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:37, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

Monsuno Wiki (approved) Edit

I'd like to suggest the Monsuno Wiki for a Spotlight. We meet all the article criteria, aren't having upsets in adminship, and our main page is unprotected.

http://monsuno.wikia.com/wiki/Special:WikiActivity

If possible, could the Spotlight mention the finale of Season 1 and/or the beginning of Season 2 (preferably)? the ongoing "Underground World Tourney", something based off Fallout Wiki's The Pitt?

Thanks, Abce2|Talk "Other" 02:25, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

Monsuno Wiki looks great and I've added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:08, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

Roblox Wiki (approved) Edit

Hey Staff,

Six months ago I applied for Roblox Wiki to get a spotlight. The spotlight was approved, and traffic increased by almost 5,000 views a day for the months of March, April, May, and June. The traffic has decreased somewhat, but the wiki is still quite popular for the Roblox community and Roblox forumers! Our number of pages has increased from 1350 to 2050 pages since February 2012. We now have five adminstrators, with three that are active daily and one that is active on weekends, which helps moderate the wiki.

We have a list of rules here

It'd be nice if we could reapply for our spotlight! Please mention the date the spotlight will run from if our spotlight request is accepted. 'If the spotlight runs in October', please make it Halloween themed!

  • Roblox Halloween images can be found easily on google.

Thanks guys for doing an awesome job last time with out spotlight!

User:Colgatecity

Hi. I'm glad to hear you had such a great boost from your first spotlight! There are a few cleanups needed so the wiki can be spotlighted again. First, I'm not really seeing links to the important content on the main page or even in the wiki navigation menus. Could you add some portal style links to major content types (eg. groups, users, hats... whatever) on the main page so new users can find that sort of basic information? You also have some uncategorized pages that need to be sorted out. Let me know on my wall when you have taken care of these issues and I will check back again. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:24, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
Great job cleaning that up! I've added you to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:49, September 24, 2012 (UTC)

Super Smash Bros Fanfiction Wiki Edit

Hello, I am Icewish, an admin of Super Smash Bros Fanfiction Wiki. We are a new and very small wiki with only 82 pages. I know that the requirement for a wiki spotlight is 200 pages, but we are lacking active users to create pages, and a spotlight will be just the thing to introduce new users to the wiki. I have not seen another Super Smash fanon wiki out there yet, but it is very hard to advertise our wiki because of this.

Here is the info that was requested on the Spotlight page:

  1. I, Icewish, am an active admin and most likely the most active user on the wiki.
  2. We have only 82 pages as stated earlier, but only two stub pages.
  3. There is a picture on the front page of the wiki, and there is a link to my user page if a user needs to contact me. There is also a link to the Rules page for the wiki.
  4. All of our pages have the correct categories, with an exception of maybe one or two pages.
  5. We are not in the middle or choosing new admins or anything of the sort.
  6. We are using the wiki welcome tool.
  7. We do have a community message with the latest updates about the wiki.
  8. Our wiki skin was provided by the Theme Designer, so I'm not sure if that counts as a customized wiki skin. If it is not, please notify me and I will change it.
  9. There is no offensive language anywhere on the wiki.

Icewish

I think you will find if you examine the records of past posts that they are very firm on the 200 article requirement. Your best bet would be to try to grow the wiki yourself and come back once you have at least 200. ProfessorTofty (talk) 04:53, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
Okay then. It's just that I thought that is was allowed to have less than 200 pages because I saw a spotlight for a wiki with only about 75 pages.
-Icewish
Sometimes wikis will be chosen for a sort of spotlight thing at staff discretion based on a topic considered interesting or if there's an upcoming movie coming out related to the wiki or something like that, but that's completely separate of this process. ProfessorTofty (talk) 16:04, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
Hi. ProfessorTofty is correct. Wikis requesting a spotlight through this page need to have 200 non-stub content pages. Most of the spotlights are chosen by the staff (not requested) so they do not have to meet the criteria, which is why sometimes the wikis are smaller. Good luck building your wiki, and please do ask again when you have had a chance to do so! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:27, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

Magi Wiki (approved) Edit

Hi, I'm the admin/bureaucrat of Magi Wiki, and I want a spotlight for it as it has an anime coming out in October. Since I don't know how long it takes to get approved, I'm requesting early. It has 236 pages.

M+W Talk 09:37, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

If yes, can this image be used, w:c:magi:File:Magiscan.png?
M+W Talk 17:54, August 22, 2012 (UTC)
Hi. Magi Wiki looks good and I'd be happy to approve it for a spotlight. Do you want me to put it in for a spotlight now? Or in October? After I add it to the approved list it should only take 1-2 weeks for the spotlight to go up. Let me know on my wall what you want to do. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:50, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

Eternal Sonata Wiki (approved) Edit

Hi, I'm currently the sole admin/bureaucrat for the Eternal Sonata Wiki and I would like to request a spotlight for it. It meets all of the requirements described; it should be good to go. If you could use either of the included images, that would be great! ProfessorTofty (talk) 04:52, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

Seekers Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello, I'm Mistey, an active admin on Seekers Wiki. We haven't had a spotlight before, but we have worked on categorizing and adding new pages to our Wiki. We currently have 217 pages, with more on the way when the next books come out. New editors would really help our wiki. Thank you!

The Amazing World of Gumball Wiki (approved) Edit

Hello, I am here requesting a Spotlight for The Amazing World Of Gumball wiki. I am not an Admin, but am a rollback, and have a link to a discussion about it: link

We are a wiki dedicated to Cartoon Network's show, The Amazing World of Gumball!

Hi. The wiki looks like it is in pretty good shape, but I can't see that any active admins commented on your blog post. Please contact the admins directly about whether they want a spotlight; if they agree then I will be happy to approve a spotlight for the wiki. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:05, September 5, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for talking to globaluna32 -- I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:07, September 9, 2012 (UTC)

Ratchet & Clank wiki (approved)Edit

I'm a bureaucrat on the Ratchet & Clank wiki. I believe we meet the criteria for a spotlight. We're a fairly active wiki with a couple of other active admins aside from myself. We've just recently passed the 5,000 article milestone and with a new game out soon I think this would be a good time for the spotlight. --Hunterj | My talk 16:11, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Ratchet & Clank Wiki looks great in general. Could you please lower the edit protection on the main page to only block new and unregistered users? I don't see that it was vandalized the last time it was lowered which was almost a year ago. 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)@fandom 04:14, September 5, 2012 (UTC)
Ok. I've added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:04, September 9, 2012 (UTC)

Tardis (approved)Edit

Heya :) Our last spotlight at w:c:tardis was about 15 months ago, so we thought we'd apply for another one, since the new series of Doctor Who is about to launch. Here's a recommended image, along with caption:

TardisSpotlight

Tardis
The Doctor is in!

Pretty sure we still qualify for a spotlight. We do have a few uncategorized pages, but these are either not in the main namespace, or are the result of the cache not clearing properly. (As an aside, I have no clue what's up with tardis:1992, tardis:1995 and tardis:1997. These pages are automatically categorized by template, and they shouldn't be on this list. But they persistently are, and I don't know how to make the Special page recognize the cats that are actually present.) — CzechOut 18:34, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Tardis looks great and I have added it to the approved spotlight list. I'm not sure what is up with the categories on some of those pages; have you reported it to Special:contact?? Somebody else may have seen it somewhere. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:20, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

How I Met Your Mother Wiki (approved) Edit

I would like to request a spotlight for How I Met Your Mother Wiki, which I admin. It follows everything in the Best Practices list. Thank You. Babar Suhail 13:49, August 30, 2012 (UTC)

How I Met Your Mother Wiki looks great and I've added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:30, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

Album Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello, my name is User:Jonbuddy1, and I am an admin of the Album Wiki. We opened the wiki in November 2011, and we already have 500+ quality pages detailing all kinds of musical artists and their albums. Even though we are small in active users, we are still a dedicated group of editors working to make this wiki a definitive source of all things albums and their artists. If you would choose to help us by creating a spotlight for Album Wiki, we all would be VERY grateful. My talk page on Album 01:12, August 31, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Album Wiki looks pretty good -- congratulations on reaching 500 pages! In order to be spotlighted, you would need to do some sprucing up of the main page (which should have some pictures and links to major content -- eg. albums, artists, groups, etc.). Please let me know on my wall when you have had a chance to work on that and I will check again. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:38, September 5, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for working on the main page! I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:11, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

DC Nation WikiaEdit

Please put DC Nation Wikia in the spotlight we need lots of editors to help us grow, if you can help my wikia grow please please do at: http://dcnation.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

Thanks: Thunder Kris (talk) 01:12, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. DC Nation looks like a great idea for a wiki. Unfortunately, wikis spotlighted through this page need to meet all of our spotlight criteria, including 200 non-stub content pages. Please feel free to ask again when it can meet all of the spotlight criteria! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:36, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

One Tree Hill Wiki (approved) Edit

Hi. I would like the One Tree Hill Wiki to be spotlit, please. We have 690 articles, no stubs, and nothing is uncategorized. There is no foul language, and none of the content there is inappropriate. The description should be: "There is only One Tree Hill Wiki." Thank you in advance. Love and Lust 16:37, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. One Tree Hill Wiki is in great shape! The only thing it would need for a spotlight would be to re-drop the main page protection to only block edits by anonymous/new users. I don't see that it was vandalized when the protection was set that way previously. Let me know on my wall when you have had a chance to do that and I'll be happy to add it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:45, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
Added! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 23:41, September 14, 2012 (UTC)

Dragon Ball Fanon Edit

Dragon Ball Fanon is in need of more users its a place where you can make any thing about the series it also has more than 200 pages here is the link http://dragonballfanon.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Ball_Fanon_Wiki .AREA95000 (talk) 00:55, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Dragon Ball Fanon is in generally good shape and just needs a few tweaks to meet our spotlight criteria. For one, the main page protection would need to be dropped to only block anonymous users and new accounts from editing the page. There are also a few uncategorized pages. You would need to add some images to the main page -- right now there is just a logo. Finally, the spotlight would need to be approved by one of the active admins on the wiki. Please have the admin contact me on my wall when the wiki can meet all of the spotlight criteria and I will check again. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:52, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

Shakugan no Shana Wiki (approved)Edit

I would like a spotlight for Shakugan no Shana Wiki, with either of these images being used.
w:c:shakugan:File:Wikia-Visualization-Add-2.png
w:c:shakugan:File:Spotlight_candidate_3.jpg.
They are the same image, except one is jpg and one is png, for the spotlight maker's preference. --Aassdddai talk 07:32, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Shakugan no Shana Wiki looks great. I've added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:20, September 25, 2012 (UTC)

Creativity Unleashed Wiki (approved)Edit

I am a Bcrat on this wiki, I've been a user here for over a year, I'm working on some new ideas for activities, events and contests for the wiki, but our general user base has slowed down a bit, so the spotlight would really help us. Only about 28 of our 800+ articles are less than 300, and I just went through today and made sure that there's no uncategorised pages (it may say there are if you check today, as it won't have purged the system yet, but I just did them all). If you could consider us for a spotlight that would be really great!

Hi. Once Upon a Time Wiki looks great, and I've added it to the approved spotlight list. It won't go up quite in time for September 30th (I apologize) but should be up a week from Wednesday, so fairly close. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:44, September 25, 2012 (UTC)

AdventureQuest Wiki (approved)Edit

AQWiki is a community dedicated to the Web-based Flash Role-Playing Game AdventureQuest RPG, created and updated by Artix Entertainment, LLC. AQWiki aims to provide a comprehensive and accurate store of information about AdventureQuest. I'm an admin of the AQwiki and I would like for the wiki to get more attention and in turn get more editors.--Smartzard (talk) 16:55, September 12, 2012 (UTC) If AQwiki does get appoved can the date of it's spotlight be October 15th? Because that's the 10th Anniversary of AdventureQuest and it would be really nice to have it spotlighted on that date.--Logo-z-tokenssmartzard (talk)Logo-z-tokens 03:53, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. AQWiki looks pretty good. You do have some uncategorized pages that would need to be sorted out for the spotlight. Also, could you please customize the community corner? Let me know on my wall when you have done that and I'll be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:54, September 25, 2012 (UTC)
I apologize that I missed your response earlier; I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:09, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

Sleeping Dogs WikiEdit

We've recently been working on expanding articles and we now have over 200 articles that are over 300 bytes. The Wiki also fits all the other criteria. Tom Talk 17:08, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Sleeping Dogs Wiki looks pretty good, but would need a few tweaks in order to meet the spotlight criteria. The main page protection would need to be dropped to only block edits by anonymous users and new accounts. The welcome-bot would need to be turned back on (right now Mediawiki:Welcome-user is set to "@disabled"; it would need to say "@sysop" or "@latest"). Also, could you please customize the community corner? Finally, you would need to build up the content just a little bit. While you have over 200 non-stub pages, you would also need no more than 1/5th of your content or about 80 pages to be stub-length. Right now you have about 110 pages that are stub-length, so it is really only a bit of building needed. Please let me know on my wall when you are ready for me to check again! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:42, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Request for Spotlight: F1 Wiki (Approved)Edit

Hi, I'd like to request Spotlight for F1 Wiki please. Having spoken extensively with the wiki's other active admin, we both believe that the time is right to make this request. In order to meet the criteria listed we have put a considerable amount of work into the wiki over the last few weeks. As such, here is a summary of how we match up against the criteria:

  • Active admin: Myself and User:Gyarados Magnus are both active admins and bureaucrats on the F1 Wiki.
  • 200+ content pages: We have 692 pages at time of this request. Of those, only 73 are less than 300 bytes. Most of these are Dates pages, used as part of On This Day, which have no current means of expansion.
  • Picture and links on main page: Our main page contains a photograph of the current World Drivers' Champion, as well as our Featured Video. Also, our main categories are listed on the front page, allowing for easy navigation. We also have a link to the current season in the top navigation bar.
  • Categorization: I recently finished categorizing every page on the wiki.
  • Stability: Myself and User:Gyarados Magnus are the wiki's admins. No administrative upheavals have taken place in the last 6 months.
  • Welcome-user: is signed by @latest
  • Community-corner: I have just completed a new community message
  • Custom skin: We have a unique dynamic background image on an overhauled new skin.
  • No offensive content: We have a strong policy against such content. This has not been a problem at any point in recent memory.

I hope that you will enjoy visiting F1 Wiki to verify this information, and hopefully we will fit your criteria sufficiently.

Thanks for your time.

Hi. F1 Wiki looks great -- thanks for taking the time to check that it would meet all the criteria before requesting the spotlight! I've added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 01:52, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Anne of Green Gables Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi, my name is *Ginny* and I am here to request a spotlight for Anne of Green Gables Wiki. I am an admin on that wiki, and have been for over a year, and I think it meets the criteria for a spotlight (below):

  • The requester should be either an active admin, or link to a discussion with an active admin of the wiki and agreeing to the spotlight. (Yes, I am an active admin.)
  • The wiki should have at least 200 content pages, not counting stubs. Very short articles (less than about 300bytes; listed at Special:Shortpages) and articles marked with a stub template should make up no more than 1/5th of all pages on the wiki. (Yes, as of now we have 280 pages, with only about 20 stubs and short pages.)
  • The main page of the wiki 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. (Yes, it has at least one picture and clear links, and it is not protected because there has been basically no vandalism.)
  • The wiki should have a clear category structure to help readers navigate around the site. Every content page should be in a category (Special:UncategorizedPages should be empty). (There are no uncategorized pages and there is a clear category structure.)
  • The wiki should not be in the middle of choosing new admins, or any other upheavals; it should be a stable, friendly place. (Yes, it is.)
  • 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.) (It has been changed to my name.)
  • The wiki should have a custom message in the Community Center on Recent Wiki Activity. (MediaWiki:Community-corner) (It does.)
  • The wiki should have a customized skin. (It does, if that's what's meant by a customised 'theme' ... I'm not entirely sure what 'skin' means.)
  • The wiki should not use offensive language or include inappropriate images. (It doesn't.)
Springfieldhouse

Well, thanks for your attention and I hope have a spotlight up soon, if all goes well. If it isn't any trouble, could you please use this image (see right) for the spotlight, with the caption 'Revisit the magic of Prince Edward Island'. Thank you again! *Ginny* (Anne Shirley)Call me Cordelia 07:49, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

Nazi Zombies Plus WikiEdit

Alright. I'm here to request spotlight for NZPW. It's a great site and meets all the requirements I believe. If there's any further issues let me know, but I have contacted a fellow admin (and bereaucrat) at NZPW and I feel it is ready for its first spotlight. It hasn't gotten many new users recently so I think it is time to give it some spotlight.

Thanks, Wikia!

{{SUBST:User:Violetofen4/Sig}} 14:45, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Nazi Zombines Plus Wiki looks pretty good. It does need a few tweaks to meet the spotlight criteria. The main page edit protection would need to be dropped to only block new and anonymous users. Also there are 270 uncategorized pages that would need to be sorted. Let me know on my talk page when you are ready for me to check again! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:21, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Wolfenstein Wiki (approved)Edit

Hello, I am User:Elecbullet, very active administrator (and #1 user) of the Wolfenstein Wiki. I've worked for the wiki on-and-off since 2009 at the earliest I can remember, but I recently got really into it. When I got to the wiki, there were no themes, and the section for legendary, historic game Wolfenstein 3D was decrepit. I've since worked tremendously hard to get this wiki on its feet.

I think it would do a lot if we could get a Wikia Spotlight, whereas to my knowledge we have never had that honor.

Best practicesEdit

I've taken care to adhere to all Best Practices:

  • Active admin: I am an admin, and tremendously active, shooting up to the top user status, with 1672 edits. I am ready and willing to face the fury of noobs!
  • Content pages: At the time of writing we have 386, only 26 (6.7%) of which are in Category: Stub and 44 (11.3%) less than 300 bytes. The largest 200 pages are all greater than 1,200 bytes.
  • Main page: Main page provides links to all the games, and is only semiprotected.
  • Categories: Well-managed, Wikipedia-esque "Category:Articles" within "Category:Contents". No uncategorized pages.
  • Stability: No new admins or upheavals come to mind.
  • Welcome: MediaWiki:Welcome-user returns @latest
  • Community Center: MediaWiki:Community-corner is customized
  • Customized skin: I have personally hand-written CSS skins for both Oasis/Wikia and Monobook, each of which is carefully written to ensure attractiveness without sacrificing usability, and to be compatible with Oasis' ads.
  • Offensive content: The most offensive content would be 1992 sprites of enemies being shot by the player, or the translation into English of Adolf Hitler's German death cry.

Other perksEdit

In addition, there are a few attractive perks of my wiki I feel are notable:

  • Achievements: Many custom Achievements hand-made by me for the wiki and given clever Wolfenstein-related titles
  • Languages: Links to four Wolfenstein Wikis in other languages can be found throughout the wiki, with a fifth being considered for linking and more in consideration for creation

Suggested imageEdit

I took the liberty of designing an image for the wiki spotlight, working with the understanding that 255x123 is an adequate resolution. I don't know if you'll like it but here it is.

Wolfenstein Wiki Spotlight

*Suggested caption: "Wolfenstein Wiki: Get Psyched with BJ in games old and new"

  • "Get Psyched" is a phrase from Wolfenstein 3D
  • BJ is the protagonist of all Wolfenstein games
  • Suggested caption: "Get Psyched! for games old and new"
  • Depicted are characters from games from 1992 (Wolf3D) and 2009 (Wolfenstein)

(see Thread:440816 for further discussion of art and caption)

Thank you very much, whatever you decide to do. Elecbullet (talk) 20:22, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Wolfenstein Wiki looks great and I've added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:29, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Austin & Ally Wiki (approved)Edit

The Austin & Ally Wiki would love a spotlight! It completes all of the requirements. We have over 200 content pages, very few stub articles. The main page is fully produced and the wiki skin is customized. The wiki is very appropriate and clean and is a friendly, fun place to be! Season 2 of Austin & Ally is coming in October so we'd love a spotlight for that.

If we do earn this amazing spotlight, I ask if we can please use this picture:

We would love for it to say, "Are you ready for season 2?" or "New season, new music, big things are happening!" :)

Thank you so much! If there is anything we must do before we can get this spotlight, please tell us! Thank you so much, we really appreciate it! :)

Survivor Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi on behalf of Survivor Wiki, I'd like to apply for a Spotlight. The reason being, is that the next season is about to premiere in a few days and we need all the fans we can get! Our wiki is definitely so sophisticated and neat, the content is excellent, and we are very encouraging to newcomers! We definitely are eligible! We fit the criteria perfectly! Survivor is a great show that is filmed around the world and I am highly positive that even people who haven't/rarely seen Survivor will definitely find it very interesting! And the wiki is set to get even better as the new season will bring lots of excitement amongst the current users, and the future users! Survivor is (arguably) the best reality television series of all time! And a Spotlight would be just a wonderful way for our wiki to excel as much as it has already! Regardless of the result, thanks. :)

Hi. Survivor Wiki looks like a great resource! It would need a few tweaks to meet the spotlight criteria. The main page edit protection would need to be dropped to only protect against anonymous and new users. And there are a few uncategorized pages. Please let me know on my wall when you have taken care of those things and I'll be happy to add it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:05, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

The Main Page is customized with links to the most important pages, such as help and policies. The homepage is protected, however semi-protected. This is to prevent any future vandalism regardless of history, a safety measure of sorts
  • Is there a clear category structure?
Yes. Special:Uncategorized, should be empty, however some categorized pages never seem to leave. Staff has been notified if I recall.
  • Do you use @latest with a custom welcome message?
Yep, even customized!
  • Does the Wiki have a customized skin?
You tell me :P (even in monobook!)
  • Are there new admjns being chosen?
No, nor will there for the remainder of 2012
  • Is the Community Corner customized?
Yes, yes it is.
  • Does your wiki have offensive language and obscene images?
No and should anyone attempt to change that, they are infinite ip range blocked. The Wiki is based on a kids show, shananigans like those will never be tolerated at Xiaolinpedia.

As you can see, we are small, but we have strived to meet these requirements. To the upper right, you can see the image and caption we would like, should you approve our spotlight. If there are any problems, please notify me as soon as possible so our community can fix them. Thank you. It's not about how many edits you make, its about how significant the edits you make are 02:11, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Xiaolinpedia is in good shape and I've added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:21, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Gravity Falls Wiki looks good. It does have some uncategorized pages that need to be cleaned up and then I will be happy to put it on the approved spotlight list. Let me know on my wall when you have taken care of them! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 05:15, October 17, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for cleaning those up -- I have added the wiki to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:07, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

Clone Wars Wiki (approved)Edit

Hey there, I would like to request a spotlight for the Clone Wars Wiki, we have 0 Uncategorized Pages, and only 96 stubs, which are decreasing as fast as we can. Season 5 is coming up, which is the most important season, and we would like a Spotlight for it, with this picture: Tcw maul returns dvd trailer xltout

With it saying something about Season 5 coming up. Thanks! --Evanf (Talk)

Angel Wars wiki (re-request) (approved) Edit

Hi, I am re-requesting a spotlight for Angel Wars wiki because we meet all the requirements now. We would like our tag to be: He shall give his angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways. -Psalm 91:11. And we would like our pic to be:
Angel Wars heros
. Thanks! -- Unknown blood:water mission, Give a dam! ΓεννημένοςΠάλιΙησούςΦρικτός 18:01, September 27, 2012 (UTC)
Hi. Angel Wars looks great -- you guys have really worked on building it out! I've added it to the approved spotlight list. The image is too small; can you provide a larger copy? Also I think the tagline needs to be shorter but I can pass it along. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 00:40, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

new tag: Courage and Godspeed. and the new image

Fable Wiki (approved) Edit

Hi, I would like to request a spotlight for Fable Wiki (w:c:fable), due to the upcoming release of Fable: The Journey on 9th/12th October. We have streamlined our category structure greatly since our last spotlight, and still fulfil the other criteria as well. I believe each spotlight is accompanied by an image - there are a number of topical images here (my personal favourites are these).

Thanks, Enodoc(Talk) (Eno@Fable) 22:24, September 27, 2012 (UTC)

Might and Magic Wiki spotlight requestEdit

Heores

Hello. The Might and Magic Wiki needs more active editors, so I am sending this request to spotlight.

The reason is simple - we need more editors to make new pages. We have more than 4000 articles (though there needs to be more), more than 100 stubs, but a lot of empty pages.

Here is the link: http://mightandmagic.wikia.com/wiki/Special:WikiActivity

Here is the proposed image: Energy X 14:02, September 28, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Might and Magic Wiki looks great. You do have nearly 400 uncategorized pages -- which would need to be sorted out. More serious is the issue of all the blank/empty pages. You would need to have fewer than about 925 pages of 300 bytes or less; right now you have over 1000. Please work on either cleaning those up (I'm not sure what the purpose of so many blank pages actually is) or adding some content to them. Let me know on my wall when you have taken care of them and I will check again. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:54, October 24, 2012 (UTC)

Super Smash Bros. Fanfiction Wiki (approved) Edit

I am Icewish, an admin of Super Smash Bros. Fanfiction Wiki. We are a fairly new wiki that started about two months ago. We need more users, but it is extremely hard to get our wiki out there when there are almost no other wikis like us.

Best Practices:

  1. I, Icewish, am an Active admin.
  2. We have 200 pages in total, but an unknown amount of stub pages.
  3. The main page of the wiki does have one picture, links to important pages, and it is not sysop-protected.
  4. We do have a very clear category structure and every page has a category.
  5. We are not in the middle of choosing new admin or anything else. The wiki is very calm.
  6. We are using the wiki welcome tool.
  7. The community message is updated often.
  8. We have a new customized skin.
  9. We do not and would never include offensive language or images.

Thank you,

Icewish

Hi. Congratulations on reaching 200 pages! The wiki looks pretty good now - my only concern is the main page. I'm just not seeing links to the major content (things like "stories", "Characters", or whatever) and with the lack of news, featured article, and outdated poll, it feels a bit like it has been abandoned (and clearly the wiki hasn't been abandoned). Please work a bit on sprucing up the main page, adding some content, linking to major categories, and updating the poll. Let me know on my wall when you have finished (or if you have questions) and I will check again. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:02, October 24, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for adding to the main page. I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:32, October 25, 2012 (UTC)

Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL Wiki (approved)Edit

hi i'm Avatar and i'm admin in Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL Wiki. Our wiki meets all criteria to getting a spotlight. Our reason for getting a spotlight is to advertise our wiki so that fans of Yugioh zexal can come and contribute in the wiki. --Avatarr (talk) 15:21, September 30, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL Wiki is in pretty good shape for a spotlight. You do have a few uncategorized pages -- could you please sort those out? Let me know on my wall when you have finished and I will be happy to add it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:10, October 24, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! I've added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:59, October 25, 2012 (UTC)

Stephen Wiki (approved)Edit

Wiki Wordmark

The Wiki Wordmark.

I'm an administrator for the Stephen Wiki which is a Wiki dedicated to Stephen Georg and founded by him. He creates daily content in the form of a Vlog and a Let's Play channel. He's been creating content since 2003, and many of his earlier works can be found here. He was also the voice of Ness in "Fobbies are Borange, a re-telling of EarthBound, and the voice of Ninten in a re-telling of Mother. Stephen creates pretty varied content daily, so I'm sure you'll find something that you'll enjoy and be willing to document.

Residujuan (talk) 01:45, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Stephen Wiki is in great shape for the most part. In order to be spotlighted, you would need to sort out about 150 uncategorized pages. Let me know on my wall when you have taken care of those and I will check again. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:17, October 24, 2012 (UTC)
Wow. Fast work cleaning those up! I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:38, October 25, 2012 (UTC)

FusionFall Wiki (approved) Edit

FusionFall WikiSpotlight

Hello, I'd like to request that the FusionFall Wiki be featured in spotlight. We have 1,486 pages, little to no stubs, a good looking MP, and active admins and rollbacks who want to expand the wiki. I've talk to another admin and he agrees with this spotlight request. And we just underwent a MAJOR redesign to make the wiki look more professional and dedicated. So I'd like to make a request. If there is anything that doesn't match the standards, please let me know! Thanks! :) --{{SUBST:User:Regular Guy/Signature}} 01:07, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Fusion Fall Wiki looks great! In order to be spotlighted it would need one quick tweak. There are about 70 uncategorized pages that need to be sorted out. Let me know on my wall when you have taken care of them and I'll be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlights list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:25, October 24, 2012 (UTC)
Great job! I've added it to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 04:48, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

Chuggington Wikia (approved) Edit

Hello Wikia,

I am JRCS, a very active admin on the Chuggington Wikia . A wikia based on the children's TV show of the same name. Over the past month Me and my fellow wiki members have been trying to get our wiki up to scratch so it can be spotlighted. Our main task was the 200 non-stubbed and no short pages rule. We have sorted out wiki so that it has no stub pages and every article is over 300 bytes in size. I am very proud of the transformation that the wikia has made. I also want to get some more members to join our wikia and to edit regulary. If it is possible, may the image seen in this link be used? I hope It can be spotlighted!

JRCS talk to me 19:52, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Chuggington Wiki looks good -- congrats on reaching 200 articles! I have added it to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:31, October 24, 2012 (UTC)

Serious Sam Wiki (approved)Edit

Hi, I'm Darkman 4, an admin over at the Serious Sam Wiki. Both of the admins (Blacknightttgs and me) on the wiki are ready for the SS wiki to be featured, as new DLC and the Xbox 360 version of the latest game have just been released. Getting a spotlight will help people find information about the Serious Sam games and may even get some more editors, which we need right now.

We have around 570 pages, no uncategorized pages, very few stubs and small pages, a fleshed out main page that has portals for every game in the series, no major upheaval, the welcome tool is used and the community corner is updated when important new content is added to the wiki. Basically, the wiki has everything needed in a Spotlight feature.

Poptropica Wiki (approved)Edit

The Poptropica wiki has no stubs, and no uncatagorized page, and defanaityly meets all the requirements, thanks,


Hi. Poptropica Wiki is in good shape -- love the Halloween stuff! However it would need a couple of tweaks to meet the spotlight criteria. The main page edit protection needs to be dropped to only protect against anonymous users and new accounts (I checked and the one vandalism the page received would have been blocked by this as it was from a new account). Also you have about 105 articles in your stub category; could you clean this out a little? Ideally there should be less than 90. Let me know on my wall when you have taken care of these issues and I'll be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:22, October 31, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing that -- I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 00:57, November 1, 2012 (UTC)
