Hey everyone, Zmario here. I wanted to bring your attention to an important aspect when managing a wiki: the creation of policies for your wiki. It is no doubt a challenging experiencing when starting a wiki from scratch, trying to get users to join, but at the same time, setting up everything and making things look in tip-top shape. I'll go over all those things in another blog. But right now, I'd like to go further in-depth into the world of policy creation.
Starting a new wiki is always exciting and tiresome. So many things need to be changed and information needs to be added. But a very important step that can sometimes be overlooked is the creation and maintaining of policies.

Hey everyone, I just had a cool idea for a creative writing challenge, that is both fun and original!
Find an image on the internet of a place (anywhere, any time of the day, any time of the year, any weather of your choosing) and write up a small excerpt of what you think is happening there. Optionally, if you want to include a song that would tie in perfectly with your setting, feel free to do so!
The song that I chose for my setting is Burial - Homeless (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_R9Fvo2cwi4).

Hey everyone, Zmario here. I wanted to create this blog post so any user would be able to share their knowledge when it comes to being a member of Wikia! Feel free to post in the comment section any information you think other Wikians could use to their benefit. Try not to post duplicate tips!! I will be recording the information below.

The fog cast a haze over the entire city. You couldn't see more than about three feet in front of you. The streetlights were engulfed by cloudy grey, the only hint of their presence was the dimly lit spheres hovering in the air, like a ghostly presence. Leaves from nearby trees slowly descended from their home and were quickly swooped away by a gust of wind. As I stared down what seemed to be an endless road ahead, I could feel my body tense up. It felt like a dream. Like I was a ghost of my former self. As I slowly retracted back to reality, loud footsteps echoing throughout the mist. The fog was becoming denser.
I was becoming more aware.
I couldn't tell what time it was as I couldn't make out the numbers. She p…Read more >
The pool of blood spread into the next room. It seemed to have a mind of it's own. It had no eyes, yet it had vision. It had no ears, yet it could hear. I kneeled down to get a better view of it. Sweet, glorious blood. Nothing could satisfy my quench more than the delicious taste of blood from a fresh victim. Indeed, the young woman was unaware of her surroundings when I swooped it and took a sensual bite out of her neck. Delicious. As I write this, my mouth drools at the thought of my next meal. The bell's vibration is like music to my ears. It's time.
Before I attack, I would prepared for my descent into the next town by carefully scouting out my next victim. The small boy traipsing through his backyard? The young couple celeb…Read more >
