If you are looking for a way to promote your wiki, why not apply for a Community Spotlight? Spotlights are images that appear on the bottom of each wiki page. They're a great way to advertise your wiki to the entire Wikia community, and because they're directly linked, they often bring a ton of new traffic and new editors to your wiki.
To be eligible for a wiki spotlight, your wiki should match the following criteria:
- The wiki should have at least 200 content pages, not counting stubs, and a clear category structure to help readers navigate around the site.
- The main page of the wiki should have at least one picture and contain clear links to the most important content.
- The wiki should be a stable, friendly place that is welcoming to new users. It cannot contain offensive language or inappropriate images.
If approved, you'll be notified by a member of our Content team on the application page. You can then choose to submit your own artwork for the spotlight image, or we are happy to make it for you. Your spotlight will run for about 2 weeks, so sit back and enjoy the fame!
