Help?Edit

Hi! Thanks for the message on my talk page. To be honest, I do have one question. I have spent a long time trying to find out how to change the name of my wiki. Although the front page says that it is called "Two Pints Wiki", on the main page it says "Two Pints and Grownups Wiki", it's old title. Could you please help me change it? I have asked on some of the help pages, but no one's answered yet. Thanks! --Twopintsfan 19:18, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Ok. It's been changed. Let me know if you have any other questions! -- Wendy (talk) 21:28, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
Thanks so much! You don't know how much this has helped me! Thanks again! --Twopintsfan 19:21, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Categorizing? Edit

Hi Wendy,

Thanks for helping me with getting A Wiki of Unfortunate Events back up and running, but I have a question. Why does the information in my wiki have to be categorized?

And on those spoiler tags, I didn't put some of those there, the founders of the wiki did. Unfortunately, the founders abandoned the wiki about a year ago and then I found it and immediately started working on it.

Also, since you said that you recognized that I would like more people on my wiki, do you know of any ways to advertise about it somehow?

Thanks,

Search pictureEdit

Wendy,

On Wookiepedia, I noticed that the search box had a picture on it and I thought that that would look cool on A Wiki of Unfortunate Events. I don't know if you are still checking out this section of my talk page, and I know you help with the Entertainment Wikia's, do you know how I could this search like that.

Thanks, --Asoue 01:45, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

P.S. I will also post this message on your talk page.

!!!Edit

Wendy,

I think I figured this out with that page you gave me. I also figured out how to personialize my signature (~~~~). I can make one for you if you like <:-).

Re: Spotlight Edit

Hey Wendy, Thanks in advance for the spotlight on the L&O wiki! I'll make sure that every article is categorized. Greetings, --ThePegasus 16:02, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi again Wendy, I was wondering how long the waiting list for the spotlights could be. I requested the spotlight a month ago...and still nothing. Several other wikia's (for example GTA and Recipes wikia) do appear, although they haven't been on the waiting list. Anyway, just checking. I hope the spotlight will appear soon. Thanks for your help.
Greetings, --ThePegasus 20:43, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Wanted Articles Edit

Hi, Merrystar,

I was wondering if you could tell me how to delete wanted articles off of the wanted articles page, because there's an article that's not supposed to be there, at all, wanted or otherwise. If there's a way to remove it, could you please send me a message here on how to do so.
Thanks.
Pyro Python 00:17, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, Merrystar, that article's gone now. :)

Categorizing Pages Edit

Merrystar or Wendy, whichever you prefer, I was wondering if there was a way that when a page with a certain prefix is created that a category is automatically included. I mean like with the Card Trivia: and Card Tips: prefix pages. If there is a way, could you tell me how? If not, is there something similar to it? Thanks either way! ~~ U.D.K.

Question Edit

Hi Wendy, first of all, thanks for all of your help in getting the WWiki up for spotlighting. Secondly, though, on April 4th, you left me a message on my talk page, saying that my spotlight had gone up. I haven't seen it yet. Is it coincidental that I haven't seen it, or is it not up yet? Thanks again,
Eu(Talk!Contribs) 13:14, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks :)

About the monaco skins. I made them the default skin for the site, but my fellow Bureacrat, Kitsufox reverted it, going back to Quartz. I've fixed it back now, hopefully she'll let me keep it this way this time :p
Eu(Talk!Contribs) 17:47, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Re: Lemony Snicket Wiki Spotlight Edit

Hi Wendy!

I was wondering if I could use the Quartz-custom skin instead of the Monacco skins. The Monnaco skins just don't- eh...-fit on that wiki and I'm just not too keen on them (except that the custom ones look awesome on the Doofus wiki and others like it). Also, what all would I put on a welcome page?

Thanks,

Asoue1286

Hi Wendy,

Thank you for your offer to help with records.wikia.com I started this wikia earlier but soon I found out that, even with my basic html knowledge, I was having hard time setting up the wikia. I'm afraid I won't be any use to this wikia any longer. If anyone else is interested to take it over, please do so.

kind regards, arthur Urarthur 12:21, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Dark Angel Wiki Edit

Greetings! I appreciate your offer of help, and I could use some of it. So here's my question: How do I create a new infoboxes for my Wiki? Mighty MeYou may speak 01:34, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

For the moment, I just need a Character Infobox. If you can make that for me, I can probably base the other ones off of it when the time comes.

I'll need it to have the following fields:

  • Species
  • Group
  • Occupation
  • Status
  • Portrayed By

If I think of others, I should be able to add them myself. Mighty MeYou may speak 03:20, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Layout question Edit

Hi, Wendy. Thanks for offering your help over on GingaWiki. I have a question about layouts. You see, I'm an idiot when it comes to css coding, and I tryed to enter a css layout on my page, via the Monobook.css page, but it doesn't show up on the site. Could you please help? :)

Also, I was wondering if there is any site out there that offers Wikia layouts, as me and my pals are too busy/dumb to make one ourselves. Thanks.

Club Penguin Wiki spotlight Edit

Hi again. Actually, we do have a Welcome template. It's found at Template:Welc on the Club Penguin Wiki. I'll have some of the other users on the wiki to start working on the categories. When we're done either stop by or I'll drop you a line. Thanks!-- Barkjo 16:56, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

on the wikia spotlight page Edit

people are clicking leave message and so arn't seeing the message saying please put new requests at top, maybe you should consider putting that message on the top of the page (visibly) so people can actually take note of it.

Thanks for the reply, we're not decided on what to do about monaco yet as consensus has been taken, but at least you said we were doing well, so have an Illogicopedian pat on the back & my own personal thumbs up :D --Testostereich 07:16, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Re: The X-Files WikiEdit

Hi, Merrystar. Thanks for your message on The X-Files Wiki. I definitely think the site could be improved by adding more to the help/style pages, so new users have a better guide as to how to contribute, but I have very little idea as to how to do this and how to phrase help text properly (I also know hardly anything about css - most of the style of The X-Files Wiki was copied from Memory Alpha, the main Star Trek wiki)! There are several issues that frequently crop up that I'd like to avoid happening, so often (such as users often copying info from wikipedia/other internet sources, verbatim).

Also, help with moving over to the new Monaco stylesheet would be much appreciated! Is there anything that you/wikia can do about more advertising for the site, as there are tons of X-Files fans & sites out there and yet not much of a community on The X-Files Wiki (usually about three/four users maximum at a time) - is/are there any indication(s) as to what would increase the popularity of the site, apart from the new movie coming out?! Despite its name, The X-Files Wiki is about more than just The X-Files - it's also about related series Millennium and The Lone Gunmen but the majority of users who contribute don't seem to know this, so raising awareness with fans of the other, lesser known series would be good.

Any help would be muchly appreciated, even if it was only advice on how to improve the wiki or gain more assistance, but practical help would admittedly be more valuable! --Mulder 00:22, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply and your compliment regarding The X-Files logo I created - I've always thought it might be good if it included an element from each of the three series the site encompasses, but it could also look too busy! In regards to a welcome template, there is Template:welcome. I did start using it, but no users have "stuck around" (even if they were "welcomed"!) so gave up using the template! Most users show very little interest in any rules/regulations/structured method(s) of contributing, but edit the pages only as they want to! For example, I've deleted several images that have been "badly named" (images uploaded to a namespace that's the same as the episode the image is taken from, rather than a description of what the image includes so there's more of an option whether it will be used to represent the episode or not on the relevant episode page - hope that makes sence; intentional spelling error!) :-), but they're still uploaded (check out the recent changes to see what I mean)! In regard to the new monaco skin, it would be best to copy the style that is already implemented, but there are still a few brown parts from MA that I've always wondered how to change. These include the introductory tables at the top of articles about main characters and episodes, as well as the middle of the three lines in the navigation templates used at the bottom of episode and season articles. Could you show me how to recolor these sections (what lines of css do this) so they can be color coordinated with the mainly blue style of the rest of the site? I was also wondering if wikia could spread the news about this wiki to all the users of wikipedia in Category:Wikipedians who like The X-Files - this is obviously more than a one-person job, though! --Mulder 06:28, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Re: UK Railways Wiki + Tractor Wiki Edit

Hi Wendy I've been looking round other vehicle and transport Wikis and found the Railways Wiki the front page has been (attempted) to be modified to match the UK Tram Wiki one by a sysop / admin but they appear to have abandoned it and left it with a title that says Tram Wiki, a picture of a Tram and various non existent pages / templates. I am not up on coding yet (tried a little bit on Tractors Wiki but not got it yet). Can it be fixed or a Standard front page re fixed (Wiki not active by the look but I've made a few edits and other Wikis point to it).

Are there any criteria to get a Wiki featured as I've now got 350 page but no editors for the tractor Wiki, it now appears in some searches on yahoo on the front page when I've search for stuff and search list shows over 1300 for Google, is this good ?

Can I get some help / point me to good examples to customise the side bar on tractor Wiki, my coding attempts not functioning very well. Also tried to copy Wikipedia templates for tags but not looking right (cleanup) and (Image required) - Thanks in advance - BulldozerD11 12:02, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Wendy for sorting out Railways Wiki back to working front page. As it looked daft saying Trams Wiki on it. Can see what & when they tried to change it, but leaving it a mess was poor.
Will look at criteria later thanks.
Thanks for fixing side bar. will discus that on your talk on tractor wiki. Templates look good now, i just need to add a camera logo to image one. and gets some others. The cataloguing of entries (pages) its applied to was part of the point of using them as on wikipedia. - BulldozerD11 19:43, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

New! Add Images feature Edit

Hi Wendy comment on the "New! Add Images" feature; When using it only 3/4 of Dialogue box contents visible, the Comment box is half hidden by the border, and the buttons not visible ?

Also when I have loaded one image and click to load another, it will only let u select from image library, not up load ? If there is a better place to ask about this please point me there, thanks BulldozerD11 19:53, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Not the sidebar but the Dialogue box's border. Im on Mozilla Firefox on a Laptop, will try on the desk top latter - BulldozerD11 20:32, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Tried on the desktop and it looks OK with full box contents visable, so dialogue box must not resize correctly for Laptops screen ratio.
Think Ive got the Side bar editing sorted now and have expanded it. Borrowed a few bits of help/policy bits and simple templates from Muppet wiki. Is there a guide to coding as the Talkheader from Wikipedia is a nightmare with transcluded ??? pages, that the more you find the more you need. The cleanup tag looks good now, just got to sort the others to auto generate the list of pages needing work.- BulldozerD11 02:38, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Less Then Jake - Dopeman (Beastie Boy Remix)? Edit

Hello, I'm a Beastie Boy fan and I was wondering if you had any further information on this track? I seem to remember hearing that this was a DJ Hurricane remix of the track, but I cannot find anything on the LTJ wiki about it. Any info you've got would rock.

Muchos Danke!

Hi. I have very little knowledge about LTJ -- I just help out at the wiki. I'd ask the founder there. -- Wendy (talk) 18:05, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Spawn Wiki Edit

Hey Wendy! I was wondering if you could help me settop templates for my Spawn Wiki! Please get back to me as soon as you can! :)

Re: Templates Edit

Well, I needs a lot of templates for heroes, villians,objects,Artists, Writers,and Comics. I am still thinking about all the other templates I need but I will get back to you with all of them ASAP :)

XenopediaEdit

Would it be possible for me to administer Xenopedia? It seemed that the previous admin has done a poor job at returning the Wiki's standard and preventing vandals from altering informations. I've tried contacting the Administrator but still received no answers.

P.S. I've imported a lot of standard templates but was shocked when Xenopedia didn't have a Help Page within the Wiki..Little_Missy - 15:57, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi LittleMissy. I took a look at xenopedia, and there is still one active admin -- VampyrumSpectrum08. You might try leaving a message on his talk page about any concerns you have. In the meanwhile, keep working on the wiki (you're doing a nice job there it looks like), and if he agrees I can see about making you an admin as well. -- Wendy (talk) 01:27, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Irwin Allen Wiki spotlight Edit

Hi Wendy, and thanks for puting the IAW in the spotlight! I am really looking forward to the results! Thanks for your kind complement about the wiki being organized. Well, the article info might be well organized but the templates aren't i'm afraid. We do have a welcome template (for ip addresses and registered users) its just hard to find. I will work on that. I'll keep an eye out for those uncategorized pages to. Thanks again — Mary (talk) 03:02, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Do you mind if I ask a quick question? Do you have any idea when the Irwin Allen spotlight will go up? I'm trying to get the wiki ready, improving templates, categorys, ect. Thanks in advance! — Mary (talk) 16:00, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

The Flash Wiki Site Skin Edit

Hi Wendy I was wondering if you could make a skin for my wiki site for The Flash it is badly need of a new skin the look of the skin I kind of want is the colors and the simple basic look of The Flash's uniform or costume that you see in the comics user Doomlurker recomended you because he thought you were the best person for the job and I agreed with him because I saw how amazing the skins look on both of his sites the Batman site and the Aquaman site. I simply hoping you can help me solve this problem and get a new skin for my wiki site The Flash. If you need to reach me just send me a message on my talk page on either one of the two main sites that I run which are Green Arrow and The Flash. Well thats it talk to you later and thanks again I hope you can help.

Happy Tree Friends Wiki Edit

Hello. The founder, and only bureaucrat/admin at http://www.happytreefriends.wikia.com, is inactive. May I be an administrator there so that I can take care of deletions, blocks, etc.? Thank you. --UberScienceNerd 18:36, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Loss of Edit Buttons (Icons) Edit

Hi Wendy I seem to have lost some of the edit Window Buttons (At the Tractors Wiki), I think I actually dragged them on to the page (Pages have been slow loading) and then deleted them thinking it was something I'd pasted wrong and the bit of auto added code that you get when you click the bold , italic and image buttons across the top. Example

Can you point me to a template Expert as having problems with wikipedia templates (Convert function) Example, (Navbox) and others this shows edit display and Navbox under construction which will not display right and effects the Spotlight logos some times. Had left a message for one of the other Wikia Admin /Helpers here who had Visited and left a message on my talk but no reply.talk:BulldozerD11 my Talk

Asking you as you fixed the Side bar form before, after my editing attempts went wrong before - Thanks- BulldozerD11 13:59, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi Wendy see you had a look at the problems. The Icons have reappeared, but Load image button does not work ?. (Left a message on your talk page at Tractor wiki last week), Thought Id check in here as not sure how your getting on as no message :(

The {pp-xxxxxxx} templates are only to put a message up on pages that are edit locked (most pages that had them i commented them out, unless I missing something totally this should not be effecting the none display or corrupt display that is happening on template pages or in template out put. The first odd display was getting </div> appearing. The transcluded doc pages with transcluded message boxes on them display the Icon outside them with a bit of code, so some things jumping out side a loop or a functions missing. Importing Doc pages brings yet more call to other templates used as examples, I've stopped some by replacing with a dummy {{Example}}. The doc pages often ref to wikipedia pages which I swapped some to Tractor wiki pages to replace them. Others need to go to the Wikia equivalent, whats the correct way to address these pages other than Full http:/ /www.xxxxxx/wiki/item. Id missed that some bits need the .js .css files altering. Can you point me to any documentation on this. Is there a dictionary of wiki markup code ?

Why are lines breaking after {{Example}} is used in a line so the part after jumps to a second line unlike this one? ---BulldozerD11 00:43, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Wendy, Peterparker (Nathan) has got the PP- messages working so thats a start, and I'll have a read of the pages at the link on coding you left me. With Help can probably get a version that works of the templates that are most useful as was trying to avoid re writing all the pages, I striped a lot of the never used [[]] links out on import of pages, so its getting the other bits working, by building New Infoboxes is probably quickest, like you suggested. Was hopping to get to 500 pages by end of this month, but for individual models realy need to Standardise the pages with pre done templates.
Thank for explanation on pp-meta and why not working. Icons are back but found that Upload Image dose not function is this due to JS or CSS file changes ? - BulldozerD11 17:34, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes Wendy; the one on the Edit toolbar / New add Image above. It was working just after I lost the Icons but then it stopped working. (the one that was displaying slightly wonky) That ones easier to use only problem is the lack of license options "Non or CC y sa 3.0". And the Form (box) not resizing correctly for different screen ratio. Image uploads tedious but i've found the multi upload tool to try. I've still got 100's of images to upload. Is there any way to catalogue them other than manually adding each one individually (have added auto cataloguing to the Licence tags.
Can you get images from wikicommons Example (one of my photos Ive used on WP) without down loading them (to local HD) and then uploading them ( so can retain the copyright data and attributions, without having to re type it / cut and paste it). Thanks for help - BulldozerD11 19:43, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

The Martian Manhunter Wiki Site Skin Edit

Hi Merrystar I recently created a new Martian Manhunter Wiki Site and I was wondering if you could create a personal skin for the site I was thinking of something with the Martian Manhunter uniform and general appearance which basically have the colors Green, Red and Purple or the color Purple is Blue I'm not sure. But you could use a image of the Martian Manhunter as a reference. Once again I wanted to thank you for the great job on The Flash site skin it look great and it makes the site great that is why I'm asking if you could just create another great skin with the Martian Manhunter. If you need to contact me leave me a message on the Martian Manhunter talk page. Well thanks again and talk to you later.

From Rod12

Hi Wendy the new skin looks great the only trouble I've been having is with putting a icon image in the top left corner of the main page with the image I've been uploading and putting a icon image before the website name and replacing the the wika W logo. Also for some reason the images on the front page are not showing up. Well thanks again for the skin it looks great.

Kight Rider Memory Alpha or Memory Beta

Dose the same password work? On all the Hubs? Any informatmon would be helpful-GinnyStar-STD MOT 02:20, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Your login will be the same between Memory Beta and Knight Rider -- once you log into one, you will be logged in on the other (and also most of the wikis). Memory Alpha requires a separate login; you can use the same username and password for your account, but you will have to log in separately when you go there. -- Wendy (talk) 16:55, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Hello Merrystar, a short while ago I requested to adopt the TT Wiki but you said I needed to make more contributions, and I have so can I adopt it now? If not could you at least block User:Simon10?

I would like to adopt a "Hannah Montana" wikia. If there's none, how could I make? Thanks again....:)

UnRuneScape Wiki Edit

I posted an adoption request for the Wiki three days ago, but I have yet to recieve a response. I noticed that you had been answering some previous adoption requests, and as I have worked extremely hard on the Wiki and am naturally annoyed about recieving no response, I decided to message you. If it is not within your power or right to make a decision about the request, I would appreciate it if you could direct me to someone who can. Thanks.--Pig house Talk | UnRuneScape Wiki

When you mean welcome IP's, does that mean I will have to go through and welcome all IP's in the history of Bully Wiki or just those that edited in the past week or so? Because I did the latter. Dan the Man 1983 07:07, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm curious: how do you actually determine the article count for the spotlight min 100? I ask because my wiki has a number of long articles that are still incomplete and marked with {{stub}}. Do you use >200 ch on Special:WikiaStats? Didactylos 04:15, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

About Jorge Queirolo Bravo (talkcontribs) as an administrator of es.literatura Edit

Merrystar, I'm sorry for disturbing you in Christmas but when you have time please take a look at Forum:De-adminship of Jorge Queirolo Bravo on es.literatura. The user Jorge Queirolo Bravo (talkcontribs) administrator by adoption of es.literatura clearly doesn't understand Wikia's policies and wiki spirit. The reasons are here and also you can contact user Davichito (talkcontribs) for a confirmation of my story. The request involve violation of GFDL, arbitrary full-protection of articles (without explanation or consistent vandalism), refusal to hear community opinion, and use of sockpuppetry to force community discussions. Also, please note that this user has been banned and expelled from Spanish Wikipedia for the same reasons: sabotage and sockpuppetry. However, his actions in Spanish Wikipedia are irrelevant, his actions here in Wikia are more than enough for considering a de-adminship. Best regards and Merry Christmas!.

The Clone Wars Wiki help Edit

Hello there. Sorry to bother, but there is a user that should be blocked on The Clone Wars Wiki by the user name of Mulgarath. He's been vandalizing and moving articles, and using profanities in his edit summaries. Since I can not block him, and there is no Administrator, I thought I might ask you. Thanks. -- Captain Vas 05:10, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Re:Special pages Edit

Hi Wendy just a few quick questions; a) The "Most visited pages" does not appear to be updating recently is this a central/server issue ?

b) The Nav boxes that were created with help from several people have a gap of about 4 lines between them when stacked on a page as here (bottom of page) http://tractors.wikia.com/wiki/Caterpillar

c) Why do we get 3 different "request a new wiki" ads at the same time at bottom of page ?

d) I had a spotlight before but can I get another, or get on the "Featured Wiki" list at bottom of page ?

e) The Trams wiki keeps getting the "Boring" vandal back by the look of it, I've have cleaned it up as it appears to have no editors at the moment.

f) My template { {Image required} } is putting all the page content inside the border when placed at top of page ?

The improved quick upload box is better with the extra copyright options, and can see the insert button now.

Thanks in advance BulldozerD11 22:44, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Your Reply copied here from my talk and My reply duplicated here

Hi. So in order of your questions:

(My reply indented BulldozerD11)

a) The "most visited" pages are, I'm pretty sure cached. I'm not sure how often they are updated.

Ok it was just it was updated daily, and now its been at least 2 weeks. page here

b) The spaces between the navboxes were being caused by bits of code that said <includeonly><!-- Note : Items here appear on the page that the template is placed in --> </includeonly>; it should be fixed

I look at this later

c) the spotlight ads are pulled randomly from a collection of them; if you get three the same it's by chance.

I probably was not clear it was not exactly same advert but 3 different ones for same thing (start an new wiki)

d) You can ask for another spotlight; for wikis where this has created an increase of traffic we have put it back up in the past. The "featured wikis" list is set by people at wikia and we can't change it.

ok I'll put a request in (just Id seen the Tram one up again).
Ok just wondered if it was similar to spotlights.

e) I'm sorry trams is being vandalized, but if there is nobody caring for the wiki, it's likely to keep happening. If you cannot block whoever it is please feel free to leave me a message when it happens and I will block them.

I think uberfuzzies tried to block IP previously, I let you know next time I check if its been vandalized.

f) I fixed Template:Image required so it closes properly now.

Thanks I'd tried a few Ideas but dident work. I must have messed it up when modifying to look like one of the others, and not noticed it was malfunctioning when used at top of a page.

I'm glad you like the new image uploader; I think it's pretty cool too. -- Wendy (talk) 19:27, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Its just missing the copyright option for CC 3
thanks again for fixing problems BulldozerD11 22:08, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
Hi Wendy, looked at item b) Nav boxes and see it looks a lot better now. (don't know why that comment cause that as its in some of the other code from wikipedia but in a discussion with the Author of some mesage boxes he said spaces and comments can cause problems :( in some code ). I look at fixing a couple of others.

Thanks (ps see we now have the new edit save bar) BulldozerD11 15:12, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for spotlight Wendy see its back up. (Do different areas have different ones ? as when i visit some of the other wikia areas get a different mix (or so it appears) ?
I've fixed the missing Cc by sa 3 option for images (Found you can edit the list).
why do I get Admin/system messages via the UK road Wikia and not to my user talk page at tractor wiki ? Its as if Tractor Wiki is not on the WIKIA mailing list ?
BORING Vandal back at Trams Wiki did about a dozen pages on the 22nd
Thanks BulldozerD11 01:56, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for reply Wendy I'll add comments later on my talk page at Tractor Wiki - BulldozerD11 18:26, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Repeat Spotlight Edit

I was curious, with the upcoming spotlight of the "Thomas the Tank Engine" Wiki, how spotlights work for repeats. What I mean is - once the spotlight starts, if we keep it up to standards does the spotlight continue past two weeks? And, if we were to expand the "Shining Time Station" section of the wiki and create a special portal for it would we be able to get a spotlight for it too? Please respond on my talk page. Thanks. ZEM talk to me! 02:40, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Literawiki mainpage link to Children's Books Wiki Edit

Hi Wendy, It would be a pleasure to put that link on our mainpage, I'm the newest admin at literawiki (teeheehee ;) ) so I'll check with the others and hopefully we should have that link on our mainpage soon, thanks very much — RC-1136 Hate Mail Here 19:13, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

T.V. wiki Edit

Someone has apparently put an inactive template on the TV wikia page. As you are one of the admins, I felt that you should realize, as well as that someone would like to ask for admin privilages there.--Iner22 18:56, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Issues with the wiki MadWorld Wiki Edit

OK, I'm not looking to become the mod at this newly made wiki, but the mod isn't answering his talkpage or for that matter doing anything at the wiki. The front page is blocked, as is the ICO file, and logo banner. Infact everything is locked, making the wiki imposable to edit and add to. I can start the wiki, I'm not looking to be the mod, and I'm figuring the wiki will get lots of visitors once the game is released to the public. Anyways I'm asking you to unlock all pages as tho it was started. Devilmanozzy 04:37, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Wikia Bot Edit

Hi, the Wikia Bot is welcoming new users by using random admin usernames. Can you tell me more about it? Does it have sth to do with the Spotlight request?... Klow 23:34, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

actually, thats a new feature. I uses the latest admin that made and edit to welcome a new contributor. See more at this page. — BalisticSig 23:45, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
That's really convenient! I'll customize it. Klow 23:51, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm glad you like it; let me know if you have any issues with the customization. -- Wendy (talk) 02:13, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Phineas and Ferb Wiki Spotlight Edit

Hi Wendy, I'm the bureaucrat over at Phineas and Ferb Wiki. I think our site is ready for the spotlight now. We have categorized all our pages, gotten a new admin, just reached 400 articles, and thanks to the new auto-welcome are welcoming our users. Please take a look at our site and let us know if we need to do anything else for spotlight. --Topher 03:30, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Those uncategorized pages have been cleared up. Please let me know if there's anything else to be done. --Topher 07:54, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Was there a reason that an anon IP user removed several "Upcoming Spotlights" from the list a few days ago? Ours was among them, and I haven't seen our ad yet. Is it running, or was it not supposed to removed yet? If it's not running yet, do we get a message when it starts running? Sorry for the question overload, but I'm kinda curious. Thanks! —Topher (Talk) 20:51, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Hey Edit

Hey Merrystar,


I'm founder of Weird World Wiki, SBR09. I think we are ready for Spotlight. We've got 100+ pages, a lotta users, and great pages.


Check Spotlight's talk for more details.


We will be grateful if yes.... our competion is a Spotlight already...... I don't wanna talk about them.....


--Spongebobrocks09 Chat with The Spongemiester 21:49, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

ThanksEdit

For the advice. I'll try to push the authors to update their stubs, or just upload more pages of my own (the trouble with fanon wikis - you can't add to a stub when it's not your own. :P ) I just have a few questions.

Is there a special page for uncategorized pages? I can't really tell what's categorized and what's not.

I meant to turn the text on the headerbar white - but I couldn't find the code to do it. (sheepish grin) Don't suppose you know it, or know someone who does?

As to the logo, I don't have anything that works with PNG files except a cheap free file converter. I didn't really see a color I liked, and converting it to a JPG/gif/etc. to change the colors just messed the logo up, so I figured, "What the heck," and stuck with blue. Thanks anyway, though, :)

Screennameless - "Goodnight, everybody!" 03:44, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing the text; exactly what I wanted. :) I categorized the pages and I'll work on the stub issue.
On a side note, a previously dead war between two of our 'crats seems to be flaring up again, so I'll try to get that sorted out. They're really getting very annoying.
Screennameless - "Goodnight, everybody!" 05:14, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Everything's categorized now, so I think we're ready. :) We just don't have a Spotlight image.

Thanks for the help with the code again, by the way!

Screennameless - "Goodnight, everybody!" 17:37, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

A user told my full name in public.

I told him to tell nobody my name but since a block fight, he has told 30 users on Club Penguin Wiki.

Combine OverWiki Edit

Hi, did you see my Spotlight request?... Klow 19:07, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

I answered you on the page. It's been 2 days; I don't do them every single day. -- Wendy (talk) 19:13, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Sorry for the hassle! I guess I was just building up the reason why you didn't answer. ;-) I changed the main page protection to registered users only, is that ok? But I can see many wikis with the main page protected, such as Wookieepedia or others, which get spotlights. Anyway, if that's ok for you, it is for me! And as for the Spotlight pics, how does a Wikia staff member knows what's best?... Klow 19:17, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
The mid-level protection is fine; in general I doubt you need even that because most wikis don't have recurrent vandalism problems with the main page, and I can't see that your wiki ever did before you protected it. Some of the bigger ones do and then protecting the page is a good option. It's the staff's job to figure out what the best image is; I think they generally do a good one. -- Wendy (talk) 19:23, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Spotlight Edit

I requested the webkinz wiki for a spotlight but nobody is responding, I noticed that you responded to all the recent ones so I am asking you, can you respond to my spotlight request?--Ventress yaps and looks. visit this website 02:39, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

If you look at the edit history, I last answered requests shortly before you made yours. I will answer it with the others when I catch up the page. -- Wendy (talk) 20:25, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Question about merger of wikis Edit

I'll be honest, I just don't know who to ask so.... :) I think Cartoon Wiki, and Animation Wiki should merge due to similar content. Currently I'm the Bureaucrat to Animation Wiki. Anyways other than my input, both are dead and between the two, I'm sure one decent wiki could come to be. Anyways, I'm seeking advise and direction on this matter. Thanks for your time.Devilmanozzy 04:19, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply, I'll for now focus on building Animation Wiki. Then maybe 2 to 3 months later I'll re look at the idea. After all theres no need to get in a hurry here. I mean maybe I need could direct Animation wiki to not be so much like Cartoon wiki. Anyways, Thanks for the reply. Devilmanozzy 14:49, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

The Flash Site New Wiki Skin Edit

Hi Merrystar I was wondering if you could possible create a New Wiki Skin for my site The Flash. You create a great one last time which I'm very thankful for. But I was hoping for a new one that kind of goes along with the recent comic book story arc The Flash: Rebirh which is about the return of Barry Allen. I have a Link below that goes to a gallery of The Flash: Rebirth story arc on my site for The Flash to help out on what colors I want the skin to have or the general look of it. If you can do this I would real be thankful oh well talk to you later and if you want to send me a message just post one on my talk page on The Flash site.

Superman Wiki Edit

Hi Merrystar I know I recently asked you about a new skin for The Flash site which I run. But today I just created a Superman Wiki and I was a hoping you could create me a Superman Wiki Skin that have the colors of the Superman Returns Movie Logo but basically the basic Superman Colors of Red Blue and a little Yellow. Here is a link to my new Superman Wiki Site [3] well I hope you can help me out on both of these Wiki Skin Request for both of my sites The Flash and my new Superman site. Oh well talk to you later and just send me a message on my talk page on either site The Flash or Superman.

Channel Awesome WikiEdit

Hey. This is Cferra from the TGWTG/Channel Awesome Wikia. Thanks for the edits. My boss SpikesGirl1 and I had been trying to fix the problem for a while now. It's just that we've been so busy working with the main thatguywiththeglasses.com site that some tasks tend to fall by the wayside. I do wonder how that is done. Is there a way I can avoid it from happening again when Channel Awesome makes more channels? I am also wondering how I can make the boxes more defined.

Thanks in advance.

Cferra 23:39, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the fast reply. I was referring to this: http://thatguywiththeglasses.wikia.com/wiki/Transmission_Awesome Notice that the grid's line's show up? That's what I meant by defined. I was wondering if there was a way to change that. We have other pages on the wiki with that grid set up. I haven't been able to fix it. I might need to use the regular table formatting. I'm not sure. Is there a way to change it without having to redo it all? Cferra 02:23, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Sorry for the confusion. Yes, I meant the boxes down by "Awesome Blogs of the Week". The Infobox is all set. The boxes for the actual show information has just been looking weird since there's no lines around it. If you can help, thanks. Sorry again for the confusion. Let me know what you can do.

Cferra 03:16, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! I really appreciate it. I see everything was autofixed, too. That sure made my life easier. Especially since there is a LOT of shows I'd have to go through. Thanks!

Yu Yu Hakusho Edit

You're an admin on the wiki for Yu Yu Hakusho and was wondering if you could make me one. I have made it my sworn duty to make this wiki great. I need to delete pages and clean up the wiki more than a regular member can do. Please, I have loved this show since I was like six and I want to do it justice.--Kylecharmed 01:59, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

While I do think his approach is noble, my only complaint is that Kylecharmed is removing the Japanese verison details most notably with the techniques where for other wikis such as Naruto the original attack names are kept in. Another yet minor issue which I can work out for the pages when I have the time is that unlike some companies Funimation had in the past made some minor plot changes for their english dubbed version including adding in material that was not present in the Japanese version. -Adv193 08:11, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

I just about resolved the matter and so come back to the page as I plan to also help improve it greatly -Adv193 11:06, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Voltron wiki - request advice regarding the sole admin and his front page Edit

Hi Wendy, I saw that you posted on the talk page for Dream Focus, the current Voltron wiki admin, advising him against his sub-optimal front page design (along with several other Wikia people).

The wiki seems dead, but it is better described as "undead". DF is the creator and sole admin, and he is active (kinda). He seems to like the inappropriately-long front page as it is, and is ready to revert changes intended to make it sane. To avert an edit war, I'm trying to convince him to alter his thinking (see his talk page). There are no active contributors, but I've already done some work and I'd like to continue. I bet I can stir up some community involvement, but I'm not willing to try until the front page is something appropriate and inviting.

If I can't convince him, what are my options? I don't want to "seize" the wiki; if DF can't be convinced, then fine, we can leave him in his private wikiland. Could I "fork" the Voltron wiki (I propose to create a "Voltron Universe wiki")? Should it come to this, can it be done easily, copying over all existing content?

I hope it doesn't come to this, but I think it might. Thanks for any advice you can provide.

--GrantB 00:30, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the response. As I said, I don't actually want to "steal" the Wiki from him. The question was more about forking.
You say I can "manually" copy the content. Really? There's no automated way to do it? I wrote a few templates and other things in addition to the pages. It's not possible to just dupe everything via an automated tool? (I suppose there are probably good reasons to not supply such a tool...)
Me and DF are talking, so maybe this discussion is unncessary (and maybe I was jumping the gun). But thanks.

Hi Merrystar. Thanks for posting on my Wiki.

I've got an issue which seems to have arison over lunch today. When uploading new images, I get a dialogue box asking if I want to save or open the Index file!

Flash Forward Wiki Edit

Hi Wendy,

There is something annoying me about spotlights. FlashForward Wiki's banners seem to circle spotlight lately, for the last couple of days to be specific. Not that I have any ill intention against Flash Forward Wiki, or any wiki for that matter, but they only have 53 articles and lack more than one best practice.

I wasn't planning on bugging you with my nagging but I just saw 2 different flash forward banners side by side in the same page and just wondered the reasoning behind this. So, what is the reasoning behind this? And again... Sorry for bugging you with this...

Modern Wikia is having trouble editing! Edit

We are having trouble editing! NO ONE can save an edit they just made, it always deletes there progress of what they edited.

For Example:

Article: Modern Wikia welcomes all!

User edit: Modern Wikia welcomes all to help learn and understand more about the modern society.

Article after user saves the edit: Modern Wikia welcomes all!

If you can fix this problem it would be great!!! Or just submit solutions on my talk page. Thank you!

You can create a wiki on anything you'd like -- just click the "Create a new wiki" link at the top of the page. However you will need to make a user account first. Also, you might have fun contributing to one of the existing wikis for fanfiction; many shows have wikis devoted to their own creations. -- Wendy (talk) 16:54, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

We recently have been added to the spotlight list, but we are having a little trouble with one of our Administrators. The administrator is unblocking people for no reason, and being overall abusive. We would like to hold a demotion forum for him (To prevent any more issues), but the spotlight guidelines do not allow that. I am requesting that we are given special permission just for one demotion. There will not be any more user right changes after this, and we will continue to edit the wiki. Please let me know if this is ok. For a link to our wiki, please click Here. Thank You.

Okay Weblykinly 21:32, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

Quick question Edit

Hey Wendy, I forgot to ask, when will Star Wars Fanon actually be spotlighted? I still haven't said to the community that we're going to be spotlighted and I'd like to give them a date. If you could get back to me when you have a chance, that'd be great. Thanks! =) - Brandon Rhea (talk) 19:12, November 11, 2009 (UTC)

  • Sounds good. I think maybe I'll tell them now that we're on the list, then remind them once we get there. Thanks. - Brandon Rhea (talk) 02:46, November 12, 2009 (UTC)

Hornblower Wiki Edit

Hi Wendy, I stumbled upon the Horatio Hornblower Wiki a short time ago and realized it seems to be abandoned, most edits in the histories I checked date back to 2007... as I have gathered some experience from one year of Adminship on the Honorverse Wiki, I would like to take over the Hornblower site and try and turn it into something more.

Best, -- SaganamiFan 14:39, November 23, 2009 (UTC)

Halopedia Image ErrorEdit

Hey MerryStar,

I'm trying to replace Halopedia's Wiki Logo (The Master Chief with Halopedia on it) via MediaWiki:Monaco.css with something else but it appears I cannot find the file in the wiki. Oddly, I found an alternate file which has the same image but it doesn't lead to the same URL.

So, here's the problem:

On another related issue, after I modified Halopedia's MediaWiki.css (Replaced the "I Cannot Find That" image with the "Oh, this is something different" image), the Monaco_Accent file overlaps the Monaco file. I checked through MediaWiki:Monaco.css but found none link of The Monaco_Accent File.

Hope you respond to this quickly. We need to bring up the Christmas Theme!- 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 13:27, December 19, 2009 (UTC)

Abuse of Administrator Power: Halo Legends Edit

Dear Wendy,

Sorry if this is not the proper place for me to discuss this but it appears I've been put under an unfair block from an administrator of Halo Legends. I have not perform any kind of hostile or ridiculous behaviour in the wiki and I've only created my first article, yet I've been placed into a ban of 1337 years without any warning or reasoning.

Please check the following:

Cheers and have a happy Christmas.(7alk) 23:33, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

February ReminderEdit

Hi, you said to remind you of the Redwall spotlight as February approaches. -- LordTBT Talk! 02:23, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

Haven't seen the Redwall Spotlight pop up yet...just wanted to make sure it was in there. -- LordTBT Talk! 23:08, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
I'm honestly a bit disappointed that Redwall was bumped when I made the request 4 months in advance. Will it be running until March 22 then? -- LordTBT Talk! 05:08, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Wendy, the Spotlight looks great. In fact, I'm curious as to what font the designer used for 'Redwall'. -- LordTBT Talk! 09:25, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

Response from Ogres WikiEdit

You recently left a note on my Ogres Wiki page, here, about one last requirement for spotlight. Thanks for letting me know. It has since been fixed.   Hooper   talk    contribs    email   04:48, January 27, 2010 (UTC)

ReversopediaEdit

So I clicked the Reverso Spotlight...you might want to know about these articles: [4] [5] [6] [7] -- LordTBT Talk! 00:19, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

Ah, didn't realize that policy was new...thought no offensive language was always a Wikia policy. -- LordTBT Talk! 05:08, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
ffensive language was a policy before the spotlight, it was basicly added by people who couldn't even be bothered to read the rules when the spotlight was up. --Yowuza yadderhouse | meh 15:22, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Darker than Black Wiki Spotlight Edit

Hi Wendy,

I was wondering if you could change the current spotlight picture to this one. I think it would look much better than the current one. Thanks... ~ Akadirgun (userpagetalk) 17:04, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Burnopedia Spotlight Edit

Hi again Wendy! We've sorted out the changes you requested, we now have a "Recent Uploads" link on the sidebar. I hope it's okay now, thanks for finally sorting this out, we've been wanting spotlight for about two years now since we started back in January 08! The link to the spotlight image is on the request page. Hopefully the page is still there and hasn't been archived. Thanks again, cya! the parkster @Burnopedia 06:37, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

British Wildlife Wiki Spotlight Edit

http://thewwcbritishwildlife.wikia.com/wiki Heres the link to our British Wildlife Wiki!

Hello, i am the creator of this wiki! My name is Steven. I found Wiki by chance and have loved it ever since. I had a dream that one day i could make an encyclopedia to showcase British Wildlife, I was going to programme it from scratch and add all the photos and content myself. Then whilst researching one day i stumbled across wikia. This was a huge leap forward! I could make my goal come true with the help of the whole online community.

I have designed the wiki to meet your specifications (with the help of a few people) So i hope to hear back from you soon!!TheWWC 19:18, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

PTW Spotlight Image Edit

Hello. I was wondering if you needed an image for Pop Tart Wiki's Spotlight? The best image would be the current logo, which I can upload here if you'd like. Multimoog created it for us and it looks perfect. I haven't seen our Spotlight yet so I was wondering if this is the reason why. Thanks!

take-over and Merge wikia Edit

Hello! Thanks for the message on my talk page.I come from the 馬交網際百科 of the executive administrator.

In fact, I found no one in the edit 澳門網絡大典, followed by copying the content of Wikimedia Macao, but also a part of the contents of the Internet has nothing to do with Macau. Another surprise will be copied from the 香港中學生大典in Hong Kong children, teachers entries. I think that 澳門網絡大典 the contents of the reputation of an absolute violation of the people of Macau.

I hope you can give my take-over 澳門網絡大典 delete content! Second, to avoid duplication, but also to you who offered to 馬交網際百科 as the name of the merged into a single Wikia, thank you!--建燁 02:51, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

Excuse me Edit

But I'm requesting that you look over one of your edits and something else.[[8]] The Bakugan Wikia spotlight is supposed to be up around this time, but I haven't seen one spotlight of it. I'm just wondering what happened, Abce2|DO NOT USE! 19:19, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
