All Chat Skins at one Location



Did you know I've already been making chat skins for more than one year? And did you know I've always published them here on Community Central first? You may know that because you've been here as well for more than a year. But now it's time to get bigger and therefore I've been making a new place for my chat skins.

Chat Skins Wikia
I've made a wiki for all my chat skins: Chat Skins Wikia. From now on I'll post new chat skins there first. Though I stay posting skins here, so don't worry. On the wiki you can easily find all skins I've made so far. You can test and use skins I haven't posted yet. Additionally you can find the details of the skins. Besides that you can also post chat skin ideas and requests and ask questions on the forum.

On the w…

Helping the World War II Wiki

Hello everyone, It's been a while since I posted on Community Central for promotion, but I've finally come back once again. I am here to raise awareness of the World War II Wiki and its German expansion. Both are wikis that very much need your contributions and both suffer from the same problem of not being able to reach possible contributors. I know there are many people who are fans of World War II gaming or war movies for example, so I urge you that if you are a fan of either, please visit our site to see the history behind the genre.

It's About Time I Share My Wiki To Everyone - FIND OUT!

It's about time, as the title suggests, that I share my wiki to everyone. I have been waiting for the moment to write this blog but I have been handling heck tons of stuff lately. So here you go.

So yes, today I will be sharing my wiki to all of you, but allow me to tell you the overall layout of it so that you can have an idea or imagine what it would look like. A few people have seen it already but many haven't.


  • 1 Appearance
  • 2 Theme
  • 3 Content
    • 3.1 Articles
    • 3.2 Templates
    • 3.3 Certain Span and Div Tags

Editing By Night!

I edit a lot at night rather than by day - its a nice way to get a good balance of less editing on the weekday and more on the weekend because we all love our sleep! Though sleep is for the weak, we're always a sucker for it - sadly. =D In any case, the Wikia community can be a great place to collaborate and have fun - but I think things come alive in the night as work for the day ends and people login to volunteer away the small hours writing content. So here's a few tips for better editing speed on that last late-night endeavour:

Making a large quantity of mass edits?
  • open up the relevant category and use the "Pin" function in your browser to hold onto it.
  • launch 10 pages at a time and do each individual task on all the tabs (hitting the ed…

Infoboxes portable, old, and new


Hey! This is Thisismyrofl, a former admin here on Community Central. I wanted to see if I could explain the difference between the three default styles of Template:Infobox, that is, the old style and the old new style and the "portable" new style.

I'm referring here to the default styles, that is, those that were on the Starter Pages Wiki's Template:Infobox page. Since every newly created wiki, at the time of its creation, is given a copy of every page and template on Starter Pages Wiki, that means that there are thousands of wikis that came with the old style, and thousands founded after September 2012 that came with the old new style, and thousands still founded after October 2015 with the "portable" new style. The differences between the three styles are…

Customizing a portable new-style infobox

Hey! This is Thisismyrofl, an admin here on Community Central. I wanted to see if I could explain how to use the new style of Template:Infobox (new as in September 2012). On your right, you see a basic infobox made in the new infobox format. We'll learn how to make an infobox of our own to meet our specific needs!

Hey, I'm RansomTime. You might know me as that guy who blocked someone on your wiki or that guy who's on chat a lot. I'm here today to talk a bit about asking questions on community central chat.


  • 1 We're here to help
  • 2 What not to do if you need help
  • 3 I want to help out
