I am looking to promote Teklogs inside Wikia, but I do not know how. I read wikia:Help:Promoting a wikia within Wikia which pointed me here. How do I get started promoting my wikia inside Wikia here? Tcrow777 Talk | Teklogs 22:19, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi, at the moment this Wiki is a bit abandoned.

Having said that I think the point of what you read on wikia:Help:Promoting a wikia within Wikia is that this wiki is intended to be neutral. Users can come here and promote their interests and the wikis they belong to. Most people only ever visit wikis where they already know something about it's topic. So this is a way to get around that and encourage users to contribute to wikis that they may not be familiar with.

I recommend that you create a profile page and read these pages.

How about a partnership? Your technology news section could use updating and Teklogs needs a community platform in order to grow up from a one-man band ;). Tcrow777 Talk | Teklogs 06:46, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

yeah a partnership sounds good. At the moment though your wiki and our tech section are sort of competing. How would we keep them seperate??

We could have the articles on your wiki and just include summaries on the WikiSocial News page.

just checked out your wiki and....

  1. Where's your description page on Central? if you don't have one it becomes very difficult for people to find you.
  2. You need a proper Community Portal Page. It helps new contributors find out how they can contribute.
  3. Is there a way to suggest news stories

Our description page is here, Teklogs does not yet fit everything described, I plan to expand Teklogs over time. I have not built the Community Portal Page yet, I plan to start work on it in the next few days. There is a forum called "New technologies" where you can discuss new news stories.

I was thinking articles on my wiki and short summaries here was the way to go. Tcrow777 Talk | Teklogs 20:55, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

I think you probably want a better name than "New technologies" but it'll do in the mean-time.

ok sounds like we're in agreement on the partnership front :-)

What is a CAN card? Tcrow777 Talk | Teklogs 02:46, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

check out Help:What is a CAN card used for

The way I would describe it is that it's like a personal userbox. You can use it to show your membership to a group or put it on another users CAN Card page so they can easily track you down again.
