    Welcome to the next exciting installment of our Featured Wikian Interviews. Today we're speaking with Bereisgreat, who also happens to be one of our Wikia Stars.


    Wikia: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

    Bereisgreat: I am Bereisgreat, more commonly known as Bere. I'm 18 and live in Belgium (Flanders). I am currently studying Applied Informatics in college. My main interests and activities resolve around manga and anime, both reading/watching and making Wikis about them. Wikia also sparked an interest in web designing/HTML/CSS. I've also been playing basketball for about 8 years. Oh and I also like cats. :)

    Wikia: How did you first discover Wikia?

    Welcome to the next exciting installment of our Featured Wikian Interviews. Today we're speaking with Mainphramephreak.


    Wikia: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

    Mainphramephreak: I'm a husband and father of two wonderful kids. I love reading, camping, four-wheel riding, and watching movies. I'm a fan of Star Trek, The Wheel of Time, Brandon Sanderson and a whole lot more. I'm from the U.S. I've been a part of Wikia since 2006.
    My username is interesting as well. You may have seen me around, but under a different name. My signature says "Willie." This is because, a long time ago, a friend of mine told me that I look like Gene Wilder. The nickname stuck and I've used it as my signature since joining.

    Welcome to the next exciting installment of our Featured Wikian Interviews. Today we're speaking with Ten Tailed Fox.


    Wikia: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

    Ten Tailed Fox: I'm a fairly average college student, going to school to study Respiratory Therapy. I hope to go further beyond this and study pulmonology in the future. In my free time, I enjoy reading novels, writing short stories, or writing fan fiction over on one of the wikis I contribute to. I am also a major fan of anime, particularly Bleach and Naruto, whose canon and fanon wikis I contribute to around here.

    Get in the Holiday Spirit

    December 3, 2012 by Xean

    'Tis the Season to deck out your wiki in Holiday awesomeness. Why should your house get all the attention? I mean, I probably spend more time on Wikis than I do in my house, and decorating a wiki is way less dangerous than decorating IRL!

    There are so many great times of year to dress up a wiki - from holidays, to seasons, to topic specific events (new season, game, etc). Back in October we hosted a Halloween Costume Contest,and  I've seen wikis getting decked out in hearts for Valentine's Day, or going green for St. Patrick's Day. Having a fun design that goes with the season is a nice way to celebrate, get people excited, and offer something fun to the folks visiting your wiki.

    So, how can you carry this out on your wiki? I have a few sugg…

    Back in September we announced that we are working hard to offer and integrate more videos into Wikia. Having videos on your wiki is a nice way to highlight content and give people the chance to really experience your wiki's topic. There are a couple of interesting ways we've have been working on to display videos and we wanted to share them with you here.


    We wanted to be able to show more than one video on a main page without taking up too much space, so we started experimenting with a randomizer. This code lets you feature 1 main video, with 3 smaller videos displayed below. When the page is refreshed, the 3 smaller videos are also refreshed, offering 3 new and interesting videos.

    I am Creating a Blog Post

    March 20, 2012 by JAlbor

    This is a blog post. In ancient times, we might have written these pieces of text on cave walls with burned pieces of wood. Trash talking was at its early stages, often involving cavemen "dissing" the hunting prowess of others. This would result in "flame wars", most with literal flames. Another caveman village would be put to the torch for not "keeping it real" and/or "trolling".

    You know you're a wikian when

    We all know there are certain things that make a wikian a wikian - things that the rest of the world doesn't really understand but that show our fellow wikian's we're one of them. Some of them are actions we take, ways we think, or words we say but they are all uniquely wikian. So what are they?

    You know you're a wikian if....

    1. You try to edit just about every post, page or photo you see on the web
    2. You get mad when a website doesn't show it's edit history
    3. You try to type in a url and automatically add .wikia.com every time
    4. You see a sad looking wiki and can't help trying to improve it
    5. You watch a show/movie and hope there's a wiki for it

    Having fun on your wiki

    October 18, 2011 by Xean



    "I never did a day's work in my life. It was all fun."

    Thomas A. Edison


    I think Mr. Edison would have been a Wikian. It's true that we're working hard to create amazing encyclopedias of knowledge about everything we love — from The Avengers to Zelda, and millions of topics in between — but we're also having a lot of fun in the process.

    There's joy to be had simply by editing your wiki: adding photos and videos, cleaning up spam (yes, we know that can be hard work, too), beefing up pages, etc. We've heard from plenty of Wikians who've spent hours working to make their community the best possible resource for one topic.

    Traditional editing isn't the only way to work on wikis; there are tons of other engaging opportunities, especially if you're j…

    Cleaning up your wiki

    September 6, 2011 by Xean

    I'm not a very organized person. Sometimes my room gets so messy that I can't find anything — I'll stand in the middle, searching through piles of stuff for one article of clothing. Eventually, I'll give up; the clutter keeps me from finding what I'm looking for.

    The same situation happens when users look for something specific on a messy wiki. They might search for a while, but they won't be able to find what they're looking for. Usually it's not because the information is missing, it's simply a case of wiki clutter.

    If this sounds familiar, it's probably time for a clean-up operation on your wiki. Here are some common examples of wiki clutter and guidelines for tidying up your pages:

    - 5 Tips to Improve Your Wiki's SEO

    SEO stands for search engine optimization. When applied to Wikia, SEO is basically a way to help your wiki appear higher in search results. For example, if you have a wiki about bacon and someone searches for bacon recipes on Google, the higher your wiki shows up in search results, the more traffic you'll get. Using SEO best practices will help your wiki grow, making it easier for people to find and contribute to your community.

    How do search engines scan your wiki? Sites like Google, Yahoo, and Bing send a Web crawler that follows links from one page to the next, indexing what they find. In this case, indexing a page means identif…
