Recently, I have been hearing of attacks on Wikia through Five Nights at Freddy's Wiki's forums. First of all, I would like to hear from an administrator on Wikia or a first-hand witness of the supposed "hacks" and tell me if this is all true, and possibly give me reliable sources. I do not know whether or not this is true, because I've been very inactive lately. Here's a summary of what I heard on the FNAF Wiki about the hacks:
- A couple days ago, FNAF Wiki announced redirect attacks. (Source: http://freddy-fazbears-pizza.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:1398439)
- A few days prior, Wikia was supposedly led to a porn site via a popup. (Source: http://freddy-fazbears-pizza.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:1383752)
If you haven't known already, I have 9 wikis. And wit…Read more >
Over the course of the past few months, I've gotten 0 responses, views, or edits on every one of my ten wikis. As a result, I am now asking myself a few questions.
Because no one bothered to visit my wikis, I have now had to all the work by myself. Was it really all for nothing? Are the ten wikis really that useless, or did I not advertise them correctly?
I have a grave feeling I'm a burden to the Wikia community. A lot of Wikians suffer from "Wiki Depression", but I suffer from depression both in real life and on the Internet.
Despite the contributions I've made to multiple wikis, it still doesn't change what people probably think about me. I don't know what things, good or bad, people think about me. And that concerns me. I wonder whether o…

Every edit must have a summary. That is just Wikia law at this point, in my opinion. But sometimes it can be a bit difficult to describe what you changed. That is why I created the 7 Levels of Editing that I go by.
This is the lowest type of edit and therefore very minor. This level encompasses changes like spelling and grammatical corrections, section breaks and other changes that often go unnoticed.
A level 2 edit is more complex than a level 1 edit. It encompasses things like an additional entry to a list or text formatting. Overall, level 2 edits are often noticeable in terms of changes.
This is the normal edit that most of us Wikia users make. This includes a broad array of content from adding a Wikipedia style reference to a template or…

Autism is a decently rare mental disorder in which people who get it develop social and behavioral issues, learning differences, etc. Autism is starting to dwindle amongst society, and I am here to provide you guys a little information about the pros and cons of autism, and the experience I am going through in order to make it through this whole "life" thing.
- Develop a serious taste for one or two interests at most
- Do really good in school
- Can spend hours on end on one interest or hobby
- Difficult to make friends
- Difficult to socially interact with other people
- Learn a lot more differently than other people
- Most importantly, they have to deal with bullying
Most people don't know this about me until I actually tell them, but I have autism (more spec…

Welcome to part 2 of The Ultimate Wikia Guide. Today, we will talk about the main page of your wiki, and how to improve it and use it to your best abilities and advantages.
The main page is the page all Wikians will get directed to when they go to your Wiki. When you first start a Wiki, your main page URL will be the name of your wiki (e.g for my Wikicommons Wiki, the URL is http://wikicommons.wikia.com/wiki/Wikicommons_Wiki).
There are tons and tons of ways to spruce up your main page. The best way is described below, but whatever method floats your boat is the method you should stick with, especially when your like me and have multiple wikis.
All main pages should have some form of introduction! On my Reference 365 Wiki, I included a welcome m…
