Hello, Wikians! It's almost that time of the year again which is basically an avid gamer's Christmas. Yeah, you've guessed it, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3!
The gaming companies have surely made 2011 stand out this year, with majorly successful titles like Portal 2 and Dead Space 2 hitting the shelves and taking a toll on our pockets (or, parent's pockets) a little bit lighter.
Wikis are getting their templates, categories and cite tags ready for this juicy event when information will be given out in buckets about brand new yet-to-be-launched video games, and once again we'll be given slight peaks and glimpses about the future of gaming itself.
Dead Island Wiki are hoping strongly to get their first ever true gameplay trailer. Market…Read more >
MediaWiki is one of those amazing things that make our Wikis awesome that nobody really knows the true power of. Well, I'm sure there's some of you out there, but I'm using this blog post specifically for new Wiki creators and those still on the novice side of the MediaWiki namespace, and how Wiki founders and administrators can use this awesome namespace to bring brand new technical layers and customization to their Wiki. Note that this blog post contains nothing about MediaWiki:Common.js or MediaWiki:Common.css.
Hello there, BobNewbie. I'm Sally the Interview girl.
So, Bob. We heard you have some nice stuff to tell the rest of Community Central.
Yes. Yes I have.
Firstly, could you give us a definition of what MediaWiki is to Wikia?…Read more >
Yeah, I know what you're thinking. Another user's take on how to build/grow/improve a wiki. Well, I'm gonna try to take that to another level, and try to give you new and interesting ideas. If any of you have more ideas you would like to add, post them below in the comments.
There are some general stuff, that should be done in the days after a wiki's creation. The logo, background and favicon (that little picture that appears on your tab) are some of the basics. If the wiki already have stuff like these, think if there is a need to improve them. If there is, how 'bout creating a contest in which users can submit logo ideas? Get cracking!

Hey everybody! I got bored, and got an idea. I'm going to make a contest! But whats it about? Best wiki's! You can enter your wiki below. There are 5 categories: Organization, Community, Information, Appearance and Technicality (see more below)
When entering your wiki, please state which categories you believe your wiki should win. I am the judge (don't worry, I don't favor wiki's because I like one more than the other), and I will go to the wiki, and, well, judge it.
The top 3 wiki's for each category will be announced on this blog, and you can then vote for the winner of those 3 wiki's on a poll, which will also be put here.
Entries end on January 30, and the poll and final date will be put up on the 17th February
So, was your wiki the best fo…Read more >
