Greetings!

Hello, everyone! Some members of the community (including users such as Sannse, Lucan07, and TK-999) and I (Master Ceadeus 27) here at Community Central have discussed an idea that I personally hope will revive much of wikia and attract many new editors!

This project is Project Wiki Revival.

You see, a lot of wikis-even wikis that, if known of, would likely have large fanbases of their topic contributing and viewing them-are founded but then are abandoned, often without any work at all done to them. Many of these wikis are so dead that vandals will take them over occasionally, and if not take them over, many vandals will leave their mark on them because of the fact that they believe they won't be caught. Aside from vandalism, these wikis are using up valuable space (URL space, so to speak) that could otherwise be used for actually providing information. Many of these wikis are never edited and if they are, at most 10-30 pages are made before they totally die and no one contributes to them anymore. Most of the time, a founder leaves the wiki-and usually wikia in itself-and never returns.

So I propose this: we (the members of Wikia as a whole, in addition to the members of the project itself) find wikis that have suffered this 'death', as we shall dub it, and post them here in the comments. Then, in your comment, you write a brief summary of what the wiki is supposed to be for, judging by its content. (A summary needn't be more than three sentences at most; the more brief the better, and the better you explain it, the better.) When you finally confirm the post, and the viewers of this blog can see the wiki, hopefully it will attract some viewers to the wiki-it may even attract the wiki's Staff Team/Founder (if they haven't left wikia) back to the wiki!

Members of the project itself will be listed here, and they will go on specific hunts for these wikis and post them. There are no requirements, per se, to be a member; however, there will be a limited number of them. However, the only responsibility of a member as opposed to a normal user is to simply hunt down these wikis, rather than simply link and summarize them when you happen to stumble across them. If you want to be a member, let us know in the comments. If you'd like to be a member, you should be fairly active across several wikis-active enough and have been around enough to know how to hunt for certain wikis with these traits.

The goal of this is to hopefully attract more viewers and editors to wikis that desperately need them; to attract a fanbase to wikis that need them or lack them completely; and for wikis that never had a staff team or similar, to get them adopted and running under efficient administration.

So please, leave questions, comments, and suggestions in the comments-and feel free to begin the hunt!

The best way to contact us in a pinch is to use PWR Wiki's chat, or the member's message walls there.

Note to posting wikis

Despite what may have been said, please, when adding many wikis, repeat the template on one comment-do NOT post many many comments at once, thus flooding the recent changes!

How to post

Use Template:PWR to add a wiki.


{{PWR
|urlname      = The area of the url that specifies the wiki, after http:// and before .wikia.com. For instance, community
|wikiname     = The wiki's visible name-for instance, Community Central.
|needof       = Does it need deletion, or does it need revival?
|wikisummary  = Please use one-three sentences to describe the wiki to the best of your ability.
