    September 27, 2016 by Noreplyz

    Data is at the base of many gaming and entertainment wikis, and showing data in a useful and effective way is important for both visitors and editors. In gaming, users want the details on a particular class or skill, the health points of a particular minion or the effects of a potion or item. In TV shows and movies, actors have different details like age, awards and occupation, and other information like revenue or popularity are of interest to visitors.

    Affiliate Your Wiki

    June 1, 2016 by Noreplyz

    Wikia has a large collection of wikis on all topics, and it’s hard to capture the audience you want to find. Creating affiliates to similar projects that fall under the same category or type of content makes it easier to draw more users who may find your content interesting. Crafting a small section on a Home Page sidebar, or as a footer at the bottom of the page, will help each community grow and flourish.

    Whether you have a wiki about a unique sport, an epic sci-fi movie or a new mobile game (more about games later!) you will be able to find wikis similar and try to get on board and create or join an affiliation!

    While it isn’t something built into Wikia, several overarching wikis like the YouTube Wiki, the Horror Film Wiki and the Disney …

    Custom Admin Highlighting

    February 15, 2016 by Noreplyz

    This is the go to blog for highlighting admins in your wiki! If you feel like there is more to be covered, leave a message below!

    You will see that many wikis have admins that have bolded and coloured usernames, maybe with a picture or flashy text. It's important to highlight admins because they are often experienced with the wiki's topic and administration, so you can easily identify someone who can help you out. It's also helpful when reviewing WikiActivity or RecentChanges, because most admins will have trustworthy edits, and it's easier to spot them out! You can also change the theme of comments to better differentiate between moderators, admins and bureaucrats for larger wikis.

    This blog post will delve into several methods you can use …

    between adoptions of contributions of useful, related content

    There's a few requirements for you to check, to make sure your adoption goes through without hassle.

    Make sure you have not adopted within the last month, that you're not currently blocked on another wiki in Wikia. Also check that you have contributed for at least a week and that you've created one useful page - the more the better, to show you are dedicated to the wiki.

    Making Awesome Home Pages

    November 24, 2015 by Noreplyz

    I took a look at loads of home pages in the pursuit of making a blog post about the best ones. Because your wiki’s Main Page is a central place for your community to look around and do research, you should take in mind some of these tips I’ve collated from various top wikis around!

    Get your users excited about your wiki by making a clean, beautiful welcome. Get your wiki's visitors happy that they've landed in the correct place! In my home wiki, we’re in the process of designing a seasonal welcome message.

    The Alternative History Wiki takes a more formal approach, by kindly welcoming visitors:

    If you don’t have the time or design, skills, placing a logo and a welcome text can still suffice, like in the Serbian Anime Characters Fight Wiki:
