Wiki Progress Bar

The feature in action, with no tasks completed.

The Wiki Progress Bar is a tool for founders and admins that leads them through the first days and weeks of creating a wikia. There are specific tasks that give users the steps they need to get their wikia off the ground. When all 30 tasks are completed, the percentage indicator reaches 100%.

How it worksEdit

  • Anyone on the wikia can complete a task - it doesn't necessarily have to be the founder or an admin.
  • Once tasks are done the task goes grey.
  • As each task is completed the progress wheel moves up; 3%, 5%, 15%, etc.
  • If the founder or an admin feels like certain tasks are not appropriate for their wikia, they can skip them permanently. These will go into skipped tasks.
  • Bonus tasks opens only when skipped tasks remain.
  • Bonus tasks can be completed in lieu of skipped tasks and the progress wheel will still move to 100%.
  • Once at 100% a congratulation message/flag goes live, and anyone with access to the dashboard sees it.

Things to keep in mindEdit

  • The congratulation message is collapsible, but the percentage indicator can never be dismissed.
  • Tasks are not editable.
