Weird World Wiki Edit

We really want to be a Spotlight! We have 100+ pages, we have over 10 users (I think, maybe around 12) and we are ready. People are making are pic. Someone make a Wikia Spotlight pic with earth on it. Please make it cool. Make another with Billy Mays on it please.


Respond quickly,


--Spongebobrocks09 Chat with The Spongemiester 21:27, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. There are a few things that Weird World Wiki needs to work on before I can add you guys to the spotlight list. 1) Your sitenotice is too long -- it needs to be 2 lines or less. 2) You have 120+ uncategorized articles; can you find them a home please? 3) The section on the main page against CPFW is very offputting and does not set a friendly tone for your wiki even for visitors who aren't part of that wiki. Please let me know when you have taken care of these issues. -- Wendy (talk) 23:14, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Gears of War FanonEdit

Hi there. I'd like to see Gears Fanon get a Wikia Spotlight. It's well underway, with over 100 well-organized mainspace articles, active administrators, and a custom theme. It's only problem is that it's rather lacking in members, which I'm hoping a Wikia Spotlight could solve.

Thanks for your time!
Screennameless - "Goodnight, everybody!" 03:17, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Gears of War Fanon Wiki looks nice and you guys have clearly been working hard on it. There are a few issues before you guys will meet all the spotlight criteria. 1) There are a small handful of uncategorized articles which need a home. 2) More importantly, while you have just over 100 articles, many of them are stubs (frequently a nearly blank template on a character), and we need them to be real articles. Even just adding in a paragraph of text would be great - they don't have to be huge articles. And finally, your sitenotice is a bit long at the moment; it should be no more than two lines. Please let me know when you guys have addressed these issues! -- Wendy (talk) 22:57, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
I think we're all set with the drama and the articles now. Bring on the spotlight! :D Screennameless - "Goodnight, everybody!" 01:40, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Great. I've added you to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 19:18, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Valkyrie Movie Wikia #2 Edit

I want my wikia to be on the spotlight, it would make a chance for our wikia to get more members. We encourage people to join to not only educate them, but to get them to help out and contribute. It would be nice to see our logo on the wikia spotlight and to get many people throughout the community of wikia's, especially history wikia's, to see what the Valkyrie Movie Wikia is all about. So I would be honored to be on the wikia spotlight. Thank You :D

--Andrew Schlieffen 14:27, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Your wiki was just spotlighted starting April 13th. I will be happy to add you back to the list for a second spotlight. -- Wendy (talk) 22:57, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
I think Valkyrie has had some spotlight attention recently -- this request was made a week after the spotlights went up. I don't think they need another spot right now. -- Danny@fandom (talk) 20:37, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
Since it has been 4 months may i have valkyrie movie wikia spotlighted --Andrew Schlieffen 19:20, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Marvel Animated Universe Wiki Edit

The MAU Wiki should be eligible to be spotlighted. As for the images, if I may, I would like to suggest some Wolverine and the X-Men and The Spectacular Spider-Man themed pictures, like the ones I've been seeing for 24 and Watchmen characters. We are currently working on articles about The Spectacular Spider-Manand will eventually work on Wolverine and the X-Men. I imagine that current shows would attract more fans than our old ones. We already have a handful of bios, and we will have more very soon. ― Thailog 19:25, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi Thailog. MAU wiki looks like it's in great shape and I have added you guys to the spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk) 22:04, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Left Behind WikiEdit

Hello, I would like to nominate the Left Behind wiki for spotlighting. The wiki uses the correct skin, has over a hundred content articles and I just finished categorizing the uncategorized pages. Please spotlight our wiki! ZEM talk to me! 23:58, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi ZEM. It looks like you've made a lot of progress on the content of this site in the last few months! Your sitenotice is currently a bit long (about 3 lines) and also very out of date. Could you make it shorter and more relevant, or remove it altogether? Then I'd be happy to add you guys to the spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk) 19:37, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
I took care of those things. Looking forward to the spotlight. :) ZEM talk to me! 02:22, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
Great! I've added you to the list. -- Wendy (talk)

Elder Scrolls Fanon Edit

Elder Scrolls Fanon should be stoplighted again. There is a lot of hype and rumors about the next planned Elder Scrolls game. The wiki now has over 530 articles and will continue to grow. The wiki has changed significantly since it was featured in October. I think new users will feel welcomed by the new look and feel of the wiki. Thanks. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 16:26, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Elder Scrolls Fanon looks like it is in pretty good shape. I see a few uncategorized pages; could you take care of them? Also, I notice that your main page is sysop protected. I checked the history and don't see any vandalism preceeding the protection. Per the request guidelines, could you please drop the edit protections at least to block only anonymous users, but preferably altogether? With those easy changes I'd be happy to add you guys back to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 19:26, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Eushully (new game releases April 24) Edit

EuWiki banner

I would like to nominate Eushully for spotlight. We are slightly short of 100 articles right now, but we are working to address that shortcoming currently. I believe we meet all the other "Best Practice" criteria. A new game from Eushully is being released on April 24th, and it'd be great if we can be spotlighted around the weeks right before and after the release. I've designed a banner image around the most recognized characters from the new game and the most recent game. -Afker All hail AliceSoft! 12:11, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi Afker. Eushully wiki looks like it is in good shape and I have added you guys to the spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk) 19:20, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

SporeWiki Edit

SporeWiki has been spotlighted before, but as these statistics show, its kinda been going downhill for a while. An expansion to the game has been set to be released on June 23rd in the USA and June 26th in Europe. I was hoping to get a spotlight again about that time. We have some 70-ish uncategorized pages, but that can easily be fixed. The welcome script is welcoming people with our customized welcome template. We also have a "compromize" sitenotice: its big, but autocollapsed, and it can't be dismissed. However, if a user does not have Javascript enabled it will be fairly large, but dismissable. Regarding admin requests, we don't really need new ones (three regular admins is enough, with declining traffic and all), however some of our more regular contributors have made requests, patiently waiting for the day we do need new admins (which will hopefully happen if we get a spotlight again). Ose TalkContribs 19:38, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi Ose. Spore wiki looks like it is in good shape overall, and there is plenty of time before the June 23 release to take care of the uncategorized pages and work on shrinking the sitenotice. Also, your main page has no images at the moment! Let me know when you have everything ready to go and I'll add you in to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 01:40, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Honorverse Wiki Edit

Hello, we at the Honorverse Wiki: [1] would like to know if there is anything we need to clean up before we request a nomination. --Farragut79 23:19, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Honorverse Wiki looks like it is in good shape. Could you please drop the protection level on the main page from sysop down to at least registered users? I can't see that there is much (any?) vandalism in the history of that page that would require it to be protected, and wikia really encourages wikis to leave it unprotected. That way the "freely editable" site doesn't have an uneditable front page for visitors! If you can unprotect the page I'll be happy to add you to the spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk) 01:22, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
I've added you guys to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 19:18, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. --Farragut79 20:40, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

City of Heroes/VillainsEdit

Hi, I'm one of the admins at the City of Heroes/Villains wiki. I would like this wiki to be spotlighted to bring in some more contributors. I think that City of Heroes/Villains has definitely met the requirements. — BalisticSig 03:17, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. City of Heroes/Villains Wiki is in pretty good shape. Could you please clean up the uncategorized pages? -- Wendy (talk) 01:39, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
The pages have been cleaned-up, two don't fit in any cats and one is there even though its in a category. Spotlight now? — BalisticSig 18:18, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Looks like you are all set. I've added you to the spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk) 23:31, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Duty & ValourEdit

I'd appreciate it if Duty & Valour, the Canadian Forces Wiki could get a spotlight sometime in the future. Since starting earlier this year, we have over 1,400 articles and are continuously growing. Thanks, Greyman Logo-Sysop TalkEmail 17:59, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Duty & Valour Wiki looks like it is in great ship and I have added you to the spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk) 00:41, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

The Ed, Edd n Eddy WikiEdit

E,EnE Wikia Spotlight Hi there, I would like to nominate The Ed, Edd n Eddy Wiki for the Wikia spotlight. I am one of the active adimins there. Our wiki currently has 438+ articles, a good template system, a fair amount of images, good length articles, it has more info about the show than Wikipedia, and meets pretty much all of the Six Best Practices. The reason why I think thw wiki needs more attention is that Tthis year is the Tenth Aniversary of Ed, Edd n Eddy, the longest running original show left on Cartoon Network, so I was thinking that wew should make people more aware of this truly note-worthy show. That and because there hasn't been many edits here in the past month.

Also, I was wondering if you can use this image I made for the spotlight image space. --Jspyster1 23:30, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Ed, Edd 'n Eddy look like it is in very good shape and I have added you guys to the spotlight list. The wiki staff make up the spotlights, and while I know they will appreciate seeing your ideas there is no guarantee they will use the spot you made. I've also noted the 10th anniversary part in the spotlight list, because I assume that was the part you really wanted to highlight. -- Wendy (talk) 18:06, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Land Before Time Wiki. Edit

Hello, I'd like to nominate Land Before Time Wiki to be spotlighted again. It has been spotlighted about three times before, and I believe it still meets the criteria. There are over one hundred non-stub pages, many images, a good logo, and the environment is stable. Will-Girl 20:03, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. One of the goals with the spotlights is to highlight a variety of wikis. While we are willing, as with your wiki, to rerun spotlights, I think more than twice in a row is a bit much, and we have just run your spotlight twice very recently. You guys do have a nice wiki and I know you work hard on it. Please feel free to ask again in say 6 months or so. -- Wendy (talk) 17:09, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Avatar Fanon WikiEdit

I would like to nominate this wiki for spotlight. It has over 100 articles, four active admins, a good amount of users, etc. We have nice images, all images and pages are categorized, and a basic system of how to do things. Also, as it might be difficult to make one for a wiki about different characters and such, I'd suggest either one using our spirit theme with the Yin-Yang, or changeable ones that refer to some of our plethora of stories. Just suggestions, we have plenty of stories to chose from. Thank you. —Excelsior, The Flash - (Talk to me, talk to me, talk to me bay-bay!) 00:37, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Avatar Fanon looks good and I've added you guys to the spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk) 17:09, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Grey's Anatomy & Private Practice WikiEdit

Hi! I'd like to nominate the Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice wiki. We seem to meet all the requirements, we have over 400 articles, a great amount of images but unfortunately only 2 regular editors including myself. Any chance we could get a spotlight?-2Anthony4 11:03, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Grey's Anatomy & Private Practice Wiki looks like it is in good shape. I've added you guys to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 16:56, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much!!!-2Anthony4 12:21, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

The Fossil Wiki Edit

I believe that the Fossil Wiki meets all of the requirements. I do have one question though. For the spotlights, do I have to design the logos for the spotlights by myself, becuase I am extremely artistically challenged. I am also the sysop and founder of the wiki. Any and all comments welcome! --meghunter99 02:04, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Fossil Wiki looks like it is in very good shape and I have added you guys to the list. You don't have to worry about creating the spotlight image yourself; the wikia staff does that. -- Wendy (talk) 16:56, 13 April 2009 (UTC)


Jurassic Park Wiki - Park PediaEdit

I believe that the JP wiki meets requirements and should be spotlighted. I am an admin on the wiki. ZEM talk to me! 00:18, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi Zem. Jurassic Park Wiki looks really nice and it's good to see you adding video trailers and other interesting content. However I notice that your main page is rather dull with no pictures (or videos) at all. Per the guidelines, could you please add a picture there? Let me know when you've done that and I will be happy to add you guys to the spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk) 02:30, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Hi Wendy, I've re-designed the main page and added a random image template as well as a link to a page I am working on for images and videos, so I believe it is ready to be added to the list. Please check it out and let me know. Thanks, ZEM talk to me! 01:26, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
Nice. I've added you guys to the list! -- Wendy (talk) 20:25, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Taggart WikiEdit

Hi, I'd like to request that Taggart wiki is spotlighted as it is in dire need of contributers and meets the requirements. Andrew22k 17:19, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi -- Taggart Wiki looks like it is in very good shape. I've added you guys to the list! -- Wendy (talk) 02:25, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

LiterawikiEdit

Literawiki is a Wiki dedicated to making a database concerning all works of literature and authors, we also allow reviews of books at Literawiki, it would be appreciated if that function was mentioned somehow in the Spotlight ad. We had a spotlight a while back, but it didn't increase our active users so I'd like to apply again. (note, I am an administrator of Literawiki) Thanks — RC-1136 Hate Mail Here 08:17, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi. I've added you guys back onto the list. Good luck! -- Wendy (talk) 02:21, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks a lot Wendy, much appreciated by all of us at Literawiki — RC-1136 Hate Mail Here 06:54, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Villains WikiEdit

Hello, Hola, Aloha, and Konnichiwaa! I am the admin of Villains Wiki, wishing to know if we could have our wiki put on the wikia spotlight. Hee-hee. --Eclipse 16:37, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi Eclipse. It looks like you have been working really hard on Villains Wiki recently. There are a couple of things I'd ask before I put you on the spotlight list:
1) You have some 50 or so uncategorized pages. Could you categorize them please?
2) Your categories are a little unorganized. Many of them are redlink categories, or mis-spelled duplicates. Could you clean these up a little and actually create the categories you want to keep or remove the redlinks?
Let me know when you've got that sorted out and I'll be happy to add you to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 02:15, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Okie-dokey. Got rid of red links and made some new categories now I'll categorize zee pagez. Eclipse 16:21, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Club Penguin Fanon (spotlight picture)Edit

The wiki is already a spotlight, these are some pictures that the community made. You can use them if you want, and you don't need to give us credit. Dancing Penguin Smile_spin.gif (Talk!) 19:03, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

The Dutch RuneScape Wikia Edit

Status:Not yet finished!

Hello. I'd like to nominate the Dutch RuneScape Wiki for the Spotlight, as the amdmin and community would like it. We currently have 1.337+ articles. We have a welkom template for registrated users and IP users. We have a monaco skin, a logo (we are curently making a new one), more then 200 images and catogories.

Nl RuneScape wiki spotlight

The image is still in progress, and I'd like to hear what is still missing on it. We still need to add a wikia spotlight logo and the name and that it is dutch.

If there is anything wrong with this picture, please contact me here!

I've got some questions:

  • Where can I find the wikia spotlight logo that I need to copy into my spotlight?

--Darth Stefan 17:35, 23 March 2009 (UTC)Darth StefanTalk: RuneScape - Star Trek - WOW


Hi Darth Stefan. Dutch Runescape Wiki looks like a nice place with lots of good work. I see a couple of issues before you can be spotlighted. First, would you please create some sort of welcome template and make sure you welcome all new contributors, logged-in and anonymous? It is an important part of building a community to make contact with the new users. Secondly, you have about 400 uncategorized articles. Could you please add categories to them?
The staff creates the spotlight images themselves; while you are very welcome to suggest an image to them, you do not need to make the entire graphic. So please don't worry about that.
When you have taken care of the welcomes and the categories, please let me know! -- Wendy (talk) 18:00, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Rickipedia: The Mummy Wiki SpotlightEdit

I am the current sysop of Rickipedia, the Wikia branch dedicated to "The Mummy" films and it has been almost a year since we have had edits. I believe the requirements have been met:

  • we now have a little over one hundred-and-twenty articles
  • we have a logo
  • the main page works suitably
  • and categorisation is well on the way to looking its best.

All that said, can we have a spotlight, please? I've been doing the work for the most part since the rest of the users abandoned the page and we have no other regular contributors. A spotlight would grab awareness and invite even more users.--Dr.Chamberlin 18:24, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi. It looks like you've put a lot of work in to Rickipedia, and the wiki is in very good shape. Could you please categorize the remaining uncategorized pages? With that small adjustment I'd be happy to add you guys to the spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk) 00:30, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
The remaining pages are almost done. We really could use that spotlight now.--Dr.Chamberlin 22:29, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Great. I've added you guys to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 21:03, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Phineas and Ferb Wiki Edit

Hello. I'd like to nominate Phineas and Ferb Wiki for the Spotlight, as the amdmin and community would like it. We currently have 367+ articles and over 10 active users. Our admin is also in the works of becoming a crat, then electing another admin. We have a good template system, many images, nice pages, a FAQ, a Manual of Style, several other help pages, and we have almost no uncategorized pages.

We'd like to have more than one spotlight, if that's okay. Switchable?:

Excelsior, The Flash - (Talk to me, talk to me, talk to me bay-bay!) 05:08, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi - I can see that you guys have been working hard on Phineas and Ferb Wiki, with a lot of customization and content! In order to have a spotlight you need to have all your pages categorized (this should not take long), and I need the request to come from your admin. In addition, we prefer not to spotlight wikis in the midst of choosing/changing their admins, as that is generally not a good time to be introducing a lot of new visitors to the site. Please finish that process and take down the sitenotice, categorize the remaining few pages, and have one of your admins contact me when you are ready.
With reguards to your images, the spotlight images are created/chosen by Wikia staff; it's great to show them your ideas but there is no guarantee that they will use them. -- Wendy (talk) 23:40, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
Hi Topher -- thanks for letting me know you guys were finished picking out new admins! I still see some uncategorized pages -- could you take care of them? Then I will be happy to add you to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 02:00, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Great job cleaning those up. I've added you to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 00:53, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Webkinz WikiEdit

Hello. I am Webkinz Mania from the Webkinz Wiki. I would like to nominate Webkinz Wiki for spotlight. Webkinz Wiki has all of the qualifications in the Spotlights page. Thank you. Webkinz Mania 01:41, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi Webkinz Mania. There are a few things Webkinz Wiki needs to work on before being added to the spotlight list. You have about 1000 uncategorized pages; they all need to be categorized. Also, there are several unwelcomed contributors in your recent changes; could you make sure you welcome all new users? And finally, while I think it's great you are looking for new sysops, that's a pretty major change for a wiki; we want to spotlight stable wikis with established admins so it would be best to wait until they are chosen before the spotlight. -- Wendy (talk) 00:55, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Oddworld Edit

This wiki needs help. It is rarely used and only maintained by me. It needs users to see and support the great new content!--I iz guy...so iz U 22:05, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi. It looks like you are doing a nice job on the Oddworld wiki. I see two things that need to be addressed before we can put you on the spoltlight list. The first is that there are nearly 100 uncategorized content pages. Could you please give them some categories? Secondly, we need an active admin for a spotlighted wiki; somebody who can delete articles, block vandals, welcome the new contributors, and help to build the community. If you are interested in doing this, please make a request to Adopt the wiki. -- Wendy (talk) 00:43, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Oddworld needs help and would be good for the spotlight.

--I iz guy...so iz U 22:04, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi. You've done a nice job categorizing your articles, and congrats on adopting the wiki. I've added you guys to the list for a spotlight! -- Wendy (talk) 02:55, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Pigeon WikiEdit

My brother and I would like to request a spotlight for the Pigeon Wiki. We believe that it fills the qualifications of the six best practices. Thank you for your consideration! NOM / ThePigeonKid & ZEM talk to me! 19:54, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Pigeon wiki looks like it is in good shape. Congrats on reaching 100 articles! I've added you to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 00:38, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Sonic FanonEdit

Sonic fanon wiki: the wiki all about sonic fan characters. It is about people who are passonet about sonic the hedgehog and make there own characters. Can we get a spotlight please? Hulkzilla 15:39, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi Hulkzilla. Sonic fanon wiki has about 100 uncategorized articles that need to be taken care of to meet the spotlight criteria. However, it will also need an admin before being spotlighted so somebody can block any vandals, welcome new contributors, and keep things organized. I suggest you open a conversation on the wiki about who you guys would like to be admin, and once the community has decided then have him/her request to Adopt the wiki. -- Wendy (talk) 00:21, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Metal Slug Wiki Edit

Hi, I'm Magma Dragoon, former Admin from the Metal Slug Wiki, and would like to nominate it for the Spotlight. We are almost achieving 200 articles but we still need help from more users, since we have just a few active users (that including me). All pages are categorized and organized under categories, having listing templates to help users find related articles. Well, I think that's all! Magma Dragoon 14:49, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi Magma Dragoon. You don't seem to be welcoming the contributors you do have to the site. Could you customize a welcome template if you don't have one, and then make sure to welcome all of your new contributors, both IPs and logged-in users? Otherwise your wiki looks like it's in great shape. Let me know when you've got the welcomes taken care of and I'll be happy to add you to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 00:21, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Yo! I've made a good welcome template. maybe I'll improve him later but by now is good enough! Magma Dragoon 14:14, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Great work, and keep up with the welcomes! I've added you guys to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 17:24, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the spotlight! Just finished a pic for the spotlight:

Un Club Penguin Edit

I'm Dancing Penguin, a bureaucrat in Un Club Penguin Wiki. I would like to nominate it for a Spotlight. We always welcome users. We have 6 administrators, 5 of them are active and 4 of them are very active. We have a lot of stubs, but we are trying to improve them (or delete them: it depends on the relevance). We also categorize all articles. Recently, we had a problem because a user was vandalizing, but we blocked him and reverted his edits. Dancing Penguin Smile_spin.gif (Talk!) 20:45, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Hello as a user I looked at the page N00b and found that while I get the sense of humor of it, they shouldn't be addressing other people in such a negative way. Devilmanozzy 10:40, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
It's an UnClub Penguin Wiki and, like all UnWikis, its main goal is humor and parody. And the article is about noobs (or n00bs) in Club Penguin, it isn't adressing anyone in particular. Dancing Penguin Smile_spin.gif (Talk!) 12:41, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
It gets worse than that... --YOWUZA TALK 2 ME! 18:00, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Hi DancingPenguin. I can see that you guys have worked hard on UnClubPenguin, and that you are rightly proud of what you have created. However, we have just agreed to give the CPFanon wiki a spotlight, and you have a very prominent link on that wiki to yours already; I honestly feel that you will get as much traffic that way as you would with your own spotlight anyways, and that spotlighting both wikis is unnecessary. -- Wendy (talk) 19:26, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
That will help their wiki a lot more than ours... but it's still good. Thanks anyways. Dancing Penguin Smile_spin.gif (Talk!) 23:36, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Lord of the Rings WikiEdit

Hello, I'd like The Lord of the Rings Wiki (One Wiki to Rule Them All) to be spotlighted. We're doing pretty well, but mostly down to fifteen or so regular contributors. The rest stay for only a few weeks. We have a nice system of getting people to contribute, but only if they're using the wiki regularly. We do have a few uncategorized pages, but those are being taken care of. We need contributors! User:Gamma Metroid 23:57, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi -- looking through your recent changes you don't appear to be welcoming new contributors; this is an important part of keeping people who visit around. Could you guys start doing that? Also keep working on the uncategorized pages. Let me know when both are taken care of and I'll be happy to add your wiki to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 23:22, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
All of the requirements have been met now. All the articles under Uncategorized Pages have been fixed, it just hasn't updated yet. Gamma_Metroid 19:13, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Great work, and keep up with the welcomes! I've added you guys to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 00:59, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Animal Crossing City Edit

Hi, I want to apply for Animal Crossing City to be in the Wikia Spotlight. Why do we need new contributors? Because Animal Crossing is a very popular videogame series and not alot of contributors are there, so I feel that the reason to why that is is because not alot of people have heard of it yet. This wikia spotlight will definetly benefit this wiki. --Paper Crossing

Hi Paper Crossing. It looks like Animal Crossing City is a very active place! I see a few things that would need to be addressed before I could add it to the spotlight list. First you have almost 200 uncategorized articles which need to be put into categories to help people find all your content. Second I can't see that anybody is welcoming new contributors on their talk pages, which is an important part of building a stable community. And finally, I would need to know that your admins are interested in having a spotlight and willing to take on the extra work more traffic to the site entails. Please feel free to ask again when all of these criteria have been met! -- Wendy (talk) 14:38, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know you guys were ready for a spotlight. I've added you to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 00:15, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Valkyrie Movie Wikia Edit

I want my wikia to be on the spotlight, it would make a chance for our wikia to get more members. We encourage people to join to not only educate them, but to get them to help out and contribute. It would be nice to see our logo on the wikia spotlight and to get many people throughout the community of wikia's, especially history wikia's, to see what the Valkyrie Movie Wikia is all about. So I would be honored to be on the wikia spotlight. Thank You :D

Why we need more contributors? Edit

We need more contributors because we need more articles to be done. I found out that many people in my community are fasinated by World War I and World War II, which is why I created the Wikia.

--Andrew Schlieffen 20:35, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi. It looks like you need to work on a few things before we can spotlight Valkyrie Movie Wiki. First nearly all of your content pages are uncategorized -- you need to create a good category system for them. Also you don't seem to be welcoming any of your contributors. Finally I noticed some duplicate pages under slightly different names which is sort of confusing. Let us know when you have sorted these issues out! -- Wendy (talk) 19:58, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Great. Thanks for taking care of those things. I've added you to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 00:28, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

The Hardy BoysEdit

w:c:hardyboys

I know this was already spotlighted, a few months ago, but I'm wondering if it could be spotlighted again, this time for the classic Monobook skin. Last time it didn't show up for users using Monobook.

One of these logos I want to use:

WHLfan (talk to me!) 00:12, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi -- we no longer make monobook spotlights because wikia uses Monaco skin, and only a small fraction of users would ever even see a monobook spot. The existing ones are just some generic ones. If you would like a second spotlight in monaco skin let me know. -- Wendy (talk) 18:40, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
I use Monobook. If you really don't care about Monobook spotlights, can you please remove spotlights from Monobook in order to save room? --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 03:24, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Shoot Em Up Wiki Spotlight Request Edit

Hello, I am requesting that Shoot Em Up (URL: http://shmup.wikia.com/) be nominated for a spotlight. We have met all of the suggested requirements and we are continuing to improve the site. All members are welcomed and we encourage others to help out and/or view the Wiki. We hope that with a spotlight, we will attract more people and then increase the quality of our shmup Wiki even more. Thank you for your consideration.

GrandViper 03:52, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

If the Wiki gets spotlighted, I'll support the possible load of traffic when GrandViper isn't there. Devilmanozzy 04:46, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Hi. Shoot Em Up Wiki looks like it is in good shape and I have added it to the list. Congrats on reaching 100 articles! -- Wendy (talk) 01:23, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Ratchet & Clank wikiEdit

The Ratchet & Clank wiki has recently reached its 2000 article milestone, we are now aiming for the 2,500 article milestone and would appreciate more users to help with this goal. We welcome every user including IPs (who we have a separate welcome template for), as far as I know we use monaco as a default skin. Every page on the site is categorised (I check daily), and we are beginning to assemble a 'category tree'. The other criteria I believe we also match. I am an administrator at the site, and this spotlight was discussed at the last IRC meeting before I nominated us here. We have recently set up some portals which help to highlight good articles, articles needing improvement and generally help with navigating across the wiki. I also have a forum open about site navigation as I do not want readers and editors to struggle with navigation on our growing wiki.

--Hunterj | My talk 14:29, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi. It looks like Ratchet & Clank is in great shape and I'll be happy to add you to the spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk) 01:23, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Club Penguin Fanon Edit

I would like to nominate Club Penguin fanon. We have almost 1000 articles, a steady government, and unlike our brother we have not had any crisis. However someone hacked our webmaster who proceeded to insult one b-crat who almost quit. We have a grammar guide in progress, a court house for complaints,article management center, merger center, and improvement center. Also we work as a community to create new articles and all articles are based on one article. we have much grammar problems and the hacked webmaster also banned a certain user.--The FluffMiester 21:25, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi. You guys look like you are in good shape and I've added you to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 01:23, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
Great! Dancing Penguin Smile_spin.gif (Talk!)

Wikitubia spotlight Edit

Wikitubia (the YouTube Wiki) has a spotlight, but one of the spotlight images (this one) is for a video that no one's ever heard of. This doesn't really encourage people to visit Wikitubia; could the image be replaced with an image from Charlie the Unicorn? It's a much more widely-known video, and would be more attractive as a spotlight image... Thanks, flaminglawyer 00:41, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Are you joking? "I like turtles" is much more famous than Charlie the Unicorn :P --Ose TalkContribs 19:52, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Never heard of either one :) --SawBucks

Combine OverWiki Edit

Hi there, what is there still to do to get a spotlight for the Combine OverWiki? We have a decent amount of articles. Klow 21:22, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi -- Combine OverWiki looks like it is in very good shape. The main thing I see is that you need to be welcoming your contributors, both anonymous and logged in. Once you've got that taken care of I'd be happy to add to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 23:55, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Ok we'll set something! Klow 00:05, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Hey Merrystar, why did you remove my thread? Maybe because only one thread by wiki is needed? Anyway, I think we are ready for a spotlight, what do you think? Klow 12:03, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
Wendy? Anyone there? Klow 17:51, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Your post was moved to the top of the page with the new requests and I have answered there. -- Wendy (talk) 19:09, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Wikihack, the NetHack wiki Edit

Greetings! I propose that Wikihack gets a spotlight. We are not using the Monaco skin and due to the nature of the subject the main page does not have any images, but I take it that as those best practices say that the list items should be done, they need not to be done as long as the wiki is otherwise in a good shape. —ZeroOne (talk / @) 16:32, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Wikihack looks like it is in good shape. You have something that looks like an image to me on the mainpage, and by default all of your visitors will view the site in Monaco now, so those aren't issues. You're doing a great job with welcomes and keeping things organized as well. I've added you to the list. -- Wendy (talk) 16:10, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
