First post! Edit

No main page talk page?? First post, woohoo! Anyway, I hope somebody finds this, because I'm not sure where to put it...

I was browsing the Final Fantasy wikia and found their cute forum setup, using a basic little template. Check it out for yourself, I'm not intimate with the details: FF wikia forums.

Also, I found a cheatsheet on Wikipedia which seems like an excellent primer on wiki-syntax. I figured we should have a local copy. In fact, I'll copy it over myself: Socialwiki:Cheatsheet. Ctaylor503 02:52, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

I gotta thank you a lot for that Forum suggestion. I think this will work quite nicely. It actually makes me debate if phpBB3 Forums will actually be needed...

Social wiki, YouTube?Edit

Why does this site seem to push YouTube so hard? I thought this was the wiki answer to MySpace. I was going to use my userspace as a blog, but I don't know what this site is supposed to look like in 6 or 18 months. Ctaylor503 03:33, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

We don't actually. Wikia does. They have ignored all my requests to have a different Mediawiki extension that would allow almost a dozen other video sites to be used. So until they do that we're pretty much stuck with YouTube for Video. All in all WikiSocial will be a much more community based version of MySpace. Once we have people who volunteer all the video's will be chosen at first by just people interested in finding and adding them and in the future by voteing for everyone's favorite video. Does that answer your question? WillSWC 04:35, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Hi Will. Please can you give me a link to where these requests were made and I'll try to find out what is delaying this. Angela@fandom (talk) 12:41, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
I don't think anyone can tell how this wikia will turn out. It will be biased towards whoever is making the most edits. It would be great if we could get lots of people with varied interests involved so that it will be balanced. So please use your profile as a blog. The more people we have involved in this wiki the healthier it is going to be--Drawde83 09:39, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
It's totally up to this community how they want this wiki to turn out. It's not very active yet, so if anyone has ideas on what it could become, they have a good chance of being influential in shaping this project at these early stages. Angela@fandom (talk) 12:41, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Angela, The page was Wikia:Forum:Possible_new_Video_Extension. I'll toss it on your talk page here also. And cytaylor503, Angela's 150% right. Everyone who edits can make their own contributions added to WikiSocial and particularly now as there will not be a whole lot of people to convince. WillSWC 20:48, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Main Page Revision Edit

I'm working on a new template for the Main Page at Testy If anyone is interested in helping. WillSWC 20:55, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Since this kinda stalled I've quickly whipped one up based on the Community Portal at User:Drawde83/Sandbox. I plan to change Community portal a bit afterwards so there is a more of a difference between the two. There's also a surprise hot topic for when it goes live :-) --Drawde83 20:47, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

New colours on main page Edit

TALK - Philralph @sca21 19:55, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
I like the new colours on the main page. Would anyone mind if we changed the default skin to Monaco smoke? I think the new colours would go quite well with this Philralph @sca21 19:55, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

TALK - 21:38, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, i didnt know if the yellow would be too bright for everyone. Smoke would look good, but so would beach in my opinion. SUBST:Anarchyuk (talk)(Contribs) 21:38, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

TALK - Philralph @sca21 07:07, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes, beach looks good too, maybe better. I'd be happy with either of these.

Hi guys!

My music friend told me about this place, so I came to look around. I'm a helper with Wikia, and an Admin on Marvel, DC, Image, and Dark Horse Comic Databases. What's the mission of this wiki?

As an initial peace offering, I'd like to give you a version of your logo where the white is transparent. If you guys really want the white to stay, I can also help by making the surrounding light blue that is currently around the white, white as well, so that the logo will look like it's floating in the center, instead of boxed in by whiteness. (All up to you guys, of course).

I really dig these talk boxes! :)

Hi Nathan, thanks for new logo

No problem, happy to contribute. :)

Confused Edit

I understand the concept but what does the community here really do? Darthkenobi0^(talk) 05:31, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think anything actually happens here, actually. I haven't heard a peep from it in over a year...

How sad, I actually had the thought of a social wiki and came to check it out. Oh and these TalkText chat templates are awesome :D

Yea, these things are the best part of this whole wiki. :)

I've been salvaging the important parts from it, in case this wiki goes in the way of another, similar inactive wiki whom Wikia just deleted to make way for community central. The original Community Wiki. I am building a rather young, and more social network based wiki, Communipedia. You should check it out sometimes if ya'll are still here. And yes, we even improved the text boxes.
