As you and your community continue to build out the information on your wikia, remember that good multimedia content can help attract readers and new contributors. Videos help complement all the rich information on your wikia by accompanying your community’s work and bringing it to life.

All of the videos currently available on your community can be seen on the page Special:Videos, which is linked from the navigation tab. Here you can view the newest videos and see what’s most popular. (Slides: focus on the “latest” and “trending” drop menu options)
