Welcome to the next installment of our Featured Wikian blog series. Recently, we chatted with Team Doofenshmirtz, a Gleek with a passion for Tardis.
Wikia: Tell us a little bit about yourself
Team Doofenshmirtz: Well, I am totally into television, video games, and manga. I am a HUGE Doctor Who fan. I am an "otaku." My favorite Internet memes are the anti-joke chicken and the close enough guy. My favorite actor is Mike Myers.
Wikia: How did you first discover Wikia?
Team Doofenshmirtz: My dad found the Phineas and Ferb Wiki and showed it to me. It's a awesome wiki! And it was my first.
Wikia: What do you think is great about Wikia?
Team Doofenshmirtz: That we can all come together to share, learn, and talk about what we love.
Wikia: How has Wikia inspired you or supported your passion?
Team Doofenshmirtz: I love to manage. It has inspired me to go into the retail business.
Wikia: What would your top 5 tips for new folks on a wiki be?
- Have fun.
- Don't get upset if things don't work for you right away.
- Don't feed the trolls.
- If you have issues, talk to the admins.
- Make your edits the best they can be.
Wikia: What would you like to see that isn't on Wikia already?
Team Doofenshmirtz: I would like to see a better way of communicating top-secret wiki info to others without having to email. The new chat helps a lot with that, however.
Wikia: You contribute on a wiki called Glee Users -- how is that different from the Glee Wiki ?
Team Doofenshmirtz: It is a great place for users to go more in-depth with their fandom. They can make entire pages about there favorite shippings!
Wikia: You edit on so many wikis: Phineas and Ferb Fannon, Phineas and Ferb, Random-ness, PFU, Glee, Glee Users, Ouran, Random-ness 2, CT, and Zeldapedia. Some users just edit on one or two wikis -- how have you been able to find so many you love?
Team Doofenshmirtz: I also edit on the Nana Wiki! I don't know really, I just find something that I love and I look for others who share that passion. It is a great way to find people who are all there for the same love of whatever the topic may be.
Wikia: Thank you Team Doofenshmirtz for taking the time to answer our questions!
