Theyserved Wikia[]

I created this wikia sometime ago, having had an interest in the subject for a number of years. The wiki's (potentially unwieldy :-o) mixture of history and genealogy could attract editors interested in those fields.

It's still very much in an embryonic stage of development - I've been considering broadening the wikia's scope to include entire units - and I'm presently the only active contributor. The main page is in desperate need of improvement, as, at present, the content isn't particularly accessible, nor is the site navigable. I must admit that I'mm not entirely certain that the wikia fully satisfies the stipulated criteria, but will address any failing identified. Cheers, Solaran87a (talk) 23:10, September 29, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Solaran. The wiki does indeed meet the criteria, so I added TheyServed Wiki to the approved list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 19:09, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

My Bride is a Mermaid Wiki[]

I would like to request a new background and logo for the My Bride is a Mermaid Wiki. Thanks. Aassdddai talk 10:14, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Aassdddai. The wiki is in good shape, so I added My Bride is a Mermaid Wiki to the list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 19:27, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

[]

Wiki in question is here. I would like to request both new logo for Oasis/Monobook and new background.

New logo should have the same image of Digivice at the left (image). Coloration should remain similiar. The word "Digimon" may look similiar to typical Digimon logo (see here). "Universe" word might look like dot matrix or something like that (bacause the digital theme of the franchise). This is for defalt skin. Monobook logo is here. Digivice image needs to be smoother and have the same logotext as new, future Oasis logo.

New background should also be seamless motherboard-like circuit board with similiar coloration like current one, but more smoother. And please do not add the "hole" between left and right side like in many Oasis bg's, because I want to add it to Monobook too. It could be something like this but with the current colors. I browsed the net, but I haven't found similiar graphic with the free license (the one in example isn't free so I cannot use it). Franchise is about digital lifeforms, that is why I have chose that background theme. I think I met criteria for requesting. Also, if you could upload new logo and bg here - I would be able to suggest changes and improvements before adding it to my wiki. Thank you, Final Cannon Dyskusja 19:07, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

Edit: I have got a new background so only logo is needed. Final Cannon Dyskusja 18:15, October 2, 2012 (UTC)
Hi Final Cannon. The wiki looks good, so I added Digimon Universe Wiki to the list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 19:58, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

New Background[]

The Ratchet & Clank wiki could do with a new background. I believe we meet every criteria (one page may not be categorized, seems to be a technical/cache issue - page has multiple category tags). Our current theme doesn't look great with the new Wikia grid design, and also it's a bit outdated. The only real request I'd have for the background is that it include both Ratchet and Clank in the background in someway. Thanks, --Hunterj | My talk 19:38, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

  • I've put a new skin in for now, which works with the new design. However I think we'd still be interested in a more appealing skin. --Hunterj | My talk 13:15, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
Hi Hunterj. The wiki is in great shape, so I added Ratchet & Clank Wiki to the list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 23:50, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

Monsuno Wiki[]

Hello, I am Abce2, the sole active crat on the Monsuno Wiki, http://monsuno.wikia.com/wiki/Special:WikiActivity, and I would like to request help with two things.

1. Fixing up the top of the background from the Oct. 3rd update. There's probably an easy way to fix this and I just haven't seen it, if so, apologies.

2. A new logo (wordmark) with a picture of either http://monsuno.wikia.com/wiki/Gold_Lock or http://monsuno.wikia.com/wiki/Lock_2.0 .

Thanks, Abce2|Talk "Other" 22:18, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Abce2. The wiki looks good, so I added Monsuno Wiki to the approved list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 23:58, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

NSW Trains Wiki[]

Hello, I am requesting some help from the Community Development Team on my wiki, the NSW Trains wiki (Located at nswtrains.wikia.com) to help me design a better mainpage. My Wiki meets all the best practises.

  • I, Jsteel7 am an admin on the wiki
  • I am also an active admin
  • We have 58 pages as of Friday 5th October
  • All our pages are categorised
  • We are not choosing new admins at the moment
  • We are using the Wikia welcome tool
  • We do not use offensive or inappropriate images.

If you could help us it would be great.

Regards,

Jsteel7 (talk) 06:44, October 5, 2012 (UTC) -- Jsteel7 (talk) 06:46, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

I have started off [1] - feel free to add to it (and the format can be used for other categories and/or copied to other wikis). Jackiespeel (talk) 14:44, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Jsteel. Thanks for checking the best practices. I added NSW Wiki to the list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 22:53, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

The Manteler Universe Wiki[]

Hello. I would like to request a content change, to add a template similar to Wookieepedia's "Appearance" template, where characters, locations, vehicles and so on can be listed in alphabetical order in an "open-and-close" template on a television episode or novel page. Maybe not totally similar, but with its own unique colour and style, which makes it different from that of Wookieepedia's.

I have made certain that the wiki meets the standard of your requirements and I am the creator and head admin of the wiki. I am also quite new to the template creating format of the wiki-style and don't quite understand the codes of creating hideable infoboxes and so on.

I appreciate any support given. Thank you. Cyruptsaram (talk) 12:48, October 7, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Cyruptsaram. The wiki is in good shape, so I added The Manteler Universe Wiki to the list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 16:18, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your speedy return. The template you have pinpointed is correct. I would like something similar, however with a more unique touch. Once again, thanks for your help, I appreciate it. Cyruptsaram (talk) 21:00, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

Musical Instruments Wiki:[]

Hi i'm from http://musical-instruments.wikia.com and i was wondering if you guys/gals could help make it look more freindly using a music theme. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. I am the founder and if you do decide to help I give full permission to do whatever you see fit. Once again thank you and have a nice day/night.

DJPON3-VINYLSCRATCH (talk) 17:17, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

Hi DJPON3. In order to be approved, the wiki will need to meet the best practices criteria linked at the top of the page. When your wiki meets those requirements, come back and make a new request, and I'll be happy to help. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 16:26, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

Bring your idea's to life wiki:[]

Hello I'm an admin at the just write wiki and we are requesting your help. We meet the minimum requirements and are in desperate need of help. So if you decide to help here is the link (http://bringyourideastolife.wikia.com/wiki/Just_Write_Wiki), if you need ill set up a meeting with the founder ASAP.

have a great day.

Administrator Ben (talk) 17:43, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

Ben, you should have told about this xD

founder The Creator 18:33, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

I see that the admin who made the request (Benjaminthewill123123) is currently blocked at Just Write Wiki. This does not meet one of the requirements on the best practices criteria, specifically "The wiki should not be in the middle of choosing new admins, or any other upheavals." Additionally, there are a few uncategorized pages and too many "stubs." When the wiki meets all of the requirements, come back and make a new request, and I'll be happy to help.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series Wiki[]

Hello, the Green Lantern The Animated Series Wiki needs help in two fields. Both visually and community wise. A plan for how we should have the categories would be helpful, and new wordmark and background would also help it look better. I tried my best to make the current background, but I just don't like it much. The other Admins don't have experience in much fields to help the wiki grow. One admin is inactive most of the time and the other is too immature (and very inexperienced) for me to talk to and discuss about wiki plans. A plan on good policies for the wiki is a must right now. It seems as though everyone doesn't even follow the current policies. I just went around and fixed up pages, added categories and etc. A helpful hand would be very appreciated. Here's the link. --{{SUBST:User:Regular Guy/Signature}} 21:11, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Regular Guy. The wiki looks good, so I added Green Lantern: The Animated Series Wiki to the approved list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 16:54, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

Lucky Fred Wiki[]

Hello this is my second request for Lucky Fred Wiki, my wiki kinda needs a new logo and I'm having a hard time making another one. Thanks. RGL sigi 1.png RGL Victor The Great RGL sigi 2.png 00:19, October 11, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Victor. I've finally caught up on requests after being gone for a week, so I'll follow up with you now at Lucky Fred Wiki to finish up after previously having done the background and navigation template. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 17:04, October 15, 2012 (UTC)

Excuse me again, I would like to request for a mainpage character portal template for the wiki. Main page kinda needs improvements. Thanks. RGL sigi 1.png RGL Victor The Great RGL sigi 2.png 14:47, October 21, 2012 (UTC)

Excuse me again, I would like to request for an image tabber for this Template, can the tabber button's color be the same with the other button's color, and the text be white? Thanks again.

The Croods Wiki[]

Hi I am the founder of the Croods Movie which is an upcoming movie, my wiki's boring theres not much to do it looks dull. As the movie comes closer I want to attract editors, I'm hoping you can help me. {{SUBST:User:The_Hungarian_Games/autosig}} 01:52, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Zack. In order to be approved, the wiki must meet the best practices criteria linked at the top of the page. For attracting editors, you can add the wiki to this list. You can also find helpful tips at Help:Attracting contributors. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 19:33, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

My wiki is boring. I need help with To Draw Wiki How To Draw Wiki and Wiki Courtroom Wiki .

Two wikis need help[]

I need my two wikis to be interesting, How To Draw Wiki and Courtroom Wiki. The Courtroom Wiki needs to look like a courtroom.

Please read the best practices criteria linked at the top of the page. The wiki must meet those requirements to be approved. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 20:20, October 22, 2012 (UTC)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Favourite Cards Wiki[]

Hello there! I just reached 50 pages yesterday so I thought I might apply for some assistance with the Main Page and the general clean-up of the Wiki. I have no uncategorised pages, nor do I have any pages that are less than 200bytes. I am the active Admin on my Wiki and edit very regularly. The 50 pages are all content pages which also include Tutorials and how a contributor can help out the Wiki. Help would be appreciated. =) --BobblesTalk 08:27, October 21, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Bobbles. Thanks for checking the best practices. I added Yu-Gi-Oh! Favourite Cards Wiki to the approved list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 20:28, October 22, 2012 (UTC)

Shakugan no Shana Wiki[]

Could I have some help on mass categorizing and/or licensing of images on the Shakugan no Shana Wiki. This might require a bot, I'm not sure. Thank you.--Aassdddai talk 11:31, October 22, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Minihound. In order for the wiki to be approved, it will need to meet the best practices criteria linked at the top of the page, specifically the parts regarding uncateogrized pages and "stubs" (short pages). Once the wiki meets those requirements, please come back and make a new request. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 23:39, October 25, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Joeplay your probably reading this, I put in a request in for the secret circle wikia, and I was woundering could you make us a FanFiction Wordmark for the wikia, as FanFictions have been started there? Thanks.. — Authority(contrib's)

Hi OA. The wiki is still in good shape, so I added The Secret Circle Wiki to the approved list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 15:49, October 30, 2012 (UTC)

Toriko WIki New Request[]

Hi. I'm from the Toriko Wiki.

I wanted to ask about the special pages: some wikis I've seen have a special page for 'videos' up there that's accessible through the navigation bar. Is that something wikis can request to have?

Adele Wiki... Again[]

Hello, the Adele Wiki (http://adele.wikia.com) does not need a full makeover, but there are images for the mainpage that say "Featured Song", "Featured Article", "News", etc., and we need one that says "Affiliated Wikis". That's it, and it has to be identical to the other ones. If someone could also tell me how these images are made, that'd be great, too. Thanks so much. =) ---Tsu'tey♫ (talk) 21:47, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

Video Games Fanon[]

After we created a Halloween skin, our old skin had mysteriously disappeared, no where to be found. Instead of making a new background to the wiki, and adjust the skin to it, I would like to enlist you to help me, and admin of the Video Games Fanon wiki, create a new skin (with perhaps some Wikia.css changes?) for the wiki. The wiki is small, and has a small number (about 6) active users, currently, as well, many of our articles are classified as Stubs by the ShortPages special page, although they seem to be quite detailed and organized, and many are not considered stubs due to currently being under construction. Otherwise, I have made a blog post on the Wiki, and the members that commented said that it would be a good idea for some help. Animal Crossing Leader -- TalkContribs 23:34, November 8, 2012 (UTC)

Hi ACL. The wiki is in good shape, so I added Video Games Fanon Wiki to the approved list and will follow up with you there. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 16:19, November 9, 2012 (UTC)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Favourite Cards Wiki[]

Hello, I'm back again. I would like to request a Christmas themed theme if that's okay. Preferably with a burgunday background, Christmas images and Yu-Gi-Oh! images as well. Here are the images I would like please:

I on;y have those three at the moment. The two Yu-Gi-Oh! ones are all that I would like. If you need to crop any of the images then feel free to and if you need to add of your own then that is alright as well thanks.

I hope this request isn't going to be too much of a pain. Sorry. --Spongebob456 (Talk) 19:56, November 16, 2012 (UTC)

One Piece Wiki[]

Hello, I'd like to update my wiki design so I was looking for good images to use as material and I think on http://www.onepiece-film.com/ there are tons that I can use, but being it a flash site I'm not able to extract them aside from simply take a screenshots. By chance are you able to extract some clean images for me? (like the background or other ones) That said, if you have any suggestions on how I can improve my wiki-theme I'll apreciate. Thank you. leviathan_89 14:28, 17 November, 2012 (UTC) (admin there)

Hi Leviathan. Using the debugger in Chrome, the only images I was able to extract were the small "banners," such as this one. Everything else is flash, so like you said, taking screenshots is the only option, I'm afraid. JoePlay WikiaStaff2.png (talk) 18:09, November 19, 2012 (UTC)

Devious Maids Wiki[]

Hello, i'm not sure if this is allowed or not however I am currently admin on the Devious Maids Wiki. Currently, the wiki lacks a background which I beleive is a key part of any wiki. If it is not a hassle, I would like to know if it was possible to create a background with the following images:

I madam making new templates on Might & Magic wiki. One, however, is quite problematic - the issue is that it only "shows itself, but it does not hide". Here's the link to that template: http://mightandmagic.wikia.com/wiki/Template%3AH6_class Energy X 20:20, November 21, 2012 (UTC)

Uploader user rights[]

Hello,
I would like to request to allow administrators in the Club Penguin Wiki the ability to give users uploader user rights. This is because many new users would like to help by uploading images, but they cannot as they are not 4 days old yet.
I think this user right would be better than allowing all new users the ability to upload, so it can be moderated by admins and prevent spam.
If uploader user right is not what i'm looking for, can you please let me know how what may enable that?
