I'm again here with a couple of chat skins. It has been long ago since I posted a chat skin here. Partly because of my personal Chat Skins Wiki of course, but also because I kind of retired making any chat skins for some time. However I couldn't possible make not a chat skin for this amazing event.
UEFA Euro 2016 as it's called officially is the football tournament in which only European countries are allowed to participate (actually all member countries of the UEFA, but that's not that important currently). This year there'll be the highest number of participants in the actual tournament: 24. Also quite important to note; it's held in France this year. It all starts today at 21:00 (CET Time) in the Saint-Denis Stadium with the match France…

Blogs are a perfect way to introduce people to a piece of coding you've made. Presenting it on Community Central is usually a good idea. Many users will see the blog post and thus the coding and that means it'll be used maybe. But how do you write the perfect technical blog?
Firstly it's important to write about what it is. Sounds very logic right? If you don't introduce to everybody what the coding is about it's likely nobody will even try it out. Think about what language the code is written in (css, js, wikitext), what the code will do, where people will find the things they can do with the code etc.
Besides that pictures are also important to add to your post. People like to see what they're going to see when if they install it. This als…Read more >
In the last part I'm going to help you design a cool user page. I'll start with a very basic one and go developing it to something very cool. At the end you can find another other cool design you can use as well.
Maybe not as standard as you would've expected, but still. It consists of some borders at the top and bottom. Furthermore the text aligning, padding, font size and font family has been customized.Read more >
After part 1 comes part 2 without a doubt. So here it is. In part 1 I've given some examples on what you may want to tell on your profile. Now I'm going to give you some tips on what you might want to show on your profile. And believe me, you definitely can show a lot.
If you're going to design a user page for a particular wiki you can add some helpful links for new users or users who don't know what to do. Think about the guidelines and rules, but also about the current projects etc. You can also post some links to pages you've been busy on lately and which you really like now. Besides that you can give some links to interesting blog posts you've written in the past. And last but not least you can post a quote.
As you might already have see…

Since I had been redesigning my user page again last weeks I started thinking about writing a blog post about how to create a nice profile for yourself. It's going to be a small series in which I'm going to tell stuff about what you can tell on your profile, what you may want to add and how you design a fancy box to put it all into.
In this part I'm going to give you some ideas on what to add to your profile. Please remember you're free to add what you want. The user page is your own place to do what you like.
This is something you may want to skip adding, because it's not really necessary. Usually users add something like 'hello', 'welcome on my profile', 'I'm [username]'.
If you're not a new user to wikia, you may have used an other account…
