Revision as of 19:41, 23 March 2009

Hi Kallah -- we are excited to have Farstriders Community Wiki as part of the Wikia community!

The URL farstriders-rp-wow.wikia.com will also work, which may make it easier for people used to the old URL.

If you use Special:CreatePage, you should find it quite easy to transfer content from the old wiki. Please let me know if you need my help with this. The Wikia Community Team is also here to help!

We have put together a few guides to Getting Started. They say imitation is the best form of flattery so absolutely check out other wikis on Wikia for ideas on layout, ways to organize your content, etc. We are all one big family at Wikia and the most important thing is to have fun!

We also put together some Advice On Starting a Wiki which provides a more a in-depth look at some of the important things you should consider when building a wiki.

If you need help (which trust me we ALL do) you can access our full in-depth help at Help Wikia, or email us through our contact form. Also, you can visit our live #wikia chat channel any time. A lot of the veteran "Wikians" hang out here so its a good place if come if you want to get some advice or simply make friends.

Now, go edit! We look forward to seeing this project thrive!

Best wishes, Angela Beesley

Thank you!


Thank you for the great advice. I'll be checking out the links (and sharing them with the other Admin) right away.

Hi there!

I'm Richard1990. I'm a Helper who specializes in Gaming Wikis. I want to cheer you on for having started a new gaming-related wiki, and see if there is anything I can help a fellow Wikian with. So if you need help with any thing, don't hesitate to ask!

I've got some tips for you here:

  • Main Page protection – Wikia has a general policy of not protecting the Main Page unless it is the target of recurring heavy vandalism. For more info, check out Help:Main page on Wikia Help.
  • Your user page – Use your user page to introduce yourself to other new visitors, so the wiki has a more personal feeling to it and luring visitors to stay and become involved. People without a userpage do not get listed in the "Featured users" listing no matter how active they are, so make sure you add something to your user page to appear in there!
  • Wikia Gaming IRC – There is a Wikia gaming IRC channel, #wikia-gaming, where you can hop on, ask for help from users of other gaming wikis, or offer your own experiences. You can access it from http://irc.wikia.com/gaming, or connect to it by your own client at irc://irc.freenode.net/wikia-gaming. Different people may be on sporadically, though you're free to ask them for any help. There's also a weekly chat in the channel every Sunday to ask or answer questions or just to hang out. The admins of some of Wikia's biggest gaming wikis (WoW, Halo, RuneScape, and others) often attend them. You can find the time for the next chat by following this link. I've also included a template below to show when the next chat will be.

Again, if you have any question for anything at all, don't hesitate to ask me!--Richard 21:28, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up!


Thank you for the tip about the IRC gaming channle - I'll be sure to stop in when I have some time. So much Wiki, so little time!
