Do you want your wiki to look great, but aren’t sure how to make it really shine? At FANDOM, we’re committed to improving the experience of creating and managing a wiki. Part of that support is offering expert help to wikis. I’ve been working on wikis for over 10 years, and I'm your go-to person for reviewing and fulfilling requests for design help.
In addition to helping with custom backgrounds, wordmarks, favicons, and redesigning home pages, I am happy to help with the more technical aspects, such as templates and CSS.
How to submit a request
If you are an admin of the wiki, first look over the best practices. To receive help, your wiki needs a minimum of 50 pages, a category structure with no uncategorized pages, and a few other requirements.
Then, go to the request page and click the large button to submit your request. Your message should include the name of your wiki, a link to your wiki, and a detailed description of your request. Don’t forget to sign your message with ~~~~.
You can easily access the “best practices” page, which links to the request page, at any time using the navigation menu: Requests > Staff Help > Design help.
What happens next
I will review and reply to all requests, either saying that your wiki has been approved or that some changes need to be made before I can help you. Keep in mind that I’ll be adhering to the customization policy when fulfilling requests for custom themes.
This process has been in place since 2011 and makes it easier for you to give your wiki that little something extra. For example, RuneMagle requested help giving I Am Frankie Wiki a new look, so I worked with him to help design a new wordmark and a background image that showcases the main characters.
As always, I’m ready to work on improving your wikis, so let’s get those requests in!
