My dearest, darling Wikians,
It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that today is my last day at Wikia. I've been with the Community Support Team since June 2011 and it has quickly grown to become my second home. I had a blast getting to know you all, and this community will always hold a fond place in my heart.
When I think about it, it's amazing how much I've learned here over the past two years. I came to Wikia being an avid wiki reader, but not a very confident editor. You guys really welcomed me with open arms and showed me the ropes and really helped me get my feet wet. I've had a blast hosting Google Hangouts, working on AMP with Brandon and just blogging about a day in life at the office! I'll especially miss hanging out with …Read more >
Do you have a pet? If so, what do you think your day be like if you could bring your pet in to school or work? Let's hear all about it in the comments section below!Read more >

Welcome to another addition of our "A Day in the Life" series. Each month we focus on a day in the life of a Wikia staff member in order to give you a better understanding of what goes on in the Wikia office. Last month we followed a day in the life of a VSTF member. While they don't work out of the Wikia office, they're still a vital part of our Community.
Can you believe it's been a year since we've started this series? It's occurred to me that since we starting blogging about life at Wikia, the Wikia office has changed dramatically. We've doubled in size and have overhauled our space. With so much going on, we haven't had time to show off our new office! So I thought for this month it would be fun to give a general over…Read more >
With the recent popularity of our Valentine's Day poetry blog, we've decided to launch a Wiki Poetry Contest!
That's right, it's time for you to flex your creative muscles and craft some beautiful wiki-themed poetry. We'll be reading our favorites as well as announcing the winners LIVE at a very special Google Hangout on April 1st. (No foolin'!)
Here are a few poems to get you in the spirit. If you can can recall, here's my painfuly bad poem from earlier:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
If you edit my wiki,
I'll edit yours too!
Any kind of poem is fair game. Haikus were extremely popular last time, so feel free to submit as many as you want. Remember, a haiku is traditionally written in a pattern of 5-7-5 syllables. Here is one o…
