Wikicity Logos[edit]

Regarding Wikicities, how do you change the logo for a Wikicity? Having the normal logo for a dedicated Wikicity makes it a bit basic, and I want to make the logo better. Can you tell me how please. Thankyou. P.S I have added here also so I can get an answer quickly.--M Johnson 02:52, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

Hello, you need to be an admin to upload a logo. Since the original admin on this wiki has never edited here, I've given you admin access so you can upload the logo. Just create a .png file of 155 by 135 pixels. The filename needs to be Wiki.png. See the Wikicities:Help:Administrators' how-to guide|Administrators' how-to guide if you need any help with the new functions this access gives you. User:Angela|Angela (Wikicities:User talk:Angela|talk) 05:29, 31 Dec 2005 (UTC)
More exactly: Width=135px and Height=155px ;-) --- Best regards, User:Melancholie|Melancholie 06:15, 31 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Attempting to set up[edit]

I'm attempting to set up a community portal, with two columns of text side by side. I'm just having trouble with the boxes. I'll have another go later. Bobo 07:09, 13 Jan 2006 (UTC)

MediaWiki namespace[edit]

Hello. Any pages in the m:MediaWiki namespace|MediaWiki namespace are automatically protected, so you don't need to worry about non-admins editing them. I'm changing the namespace name to Wikisimpsons as you requested. User:Angela|Angela (Wikicities:User talk:Angela|talk) 16:25, 13 Jan 2006 (UTC)


Hello. If Jake the Croboy causes you any more problems, please let me know. He's been vandalising other wikis too. User:Angela|Angela (Wikicities:User talk:Angela|talk) 20:19, 28 January 2006 (UTC)


Personally, I think that, to get more articles, we should slowly transfer articles over from Wikipedia. What should we do? User:Bobman123|Bobman123 04:37, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

You can do that (although it's best to adapt them, rather than just copy them - there is no point to a duplicate resource). You need to stick to the conditions of the GFDL though, which means (at the simplest level) attribution and a link to the Wikipedia authors. There is a template you can use on Central at Template:Wikipedia -- User:Sannse|sannse User talk:Sannse|(talk) 09:02, 5 April 2006 (UTC)


Hi, I've moved you up to bureaucrat - which means that you can make other contributors sysops. I've also added Thai420 as a sysop to help out. He's been clearing some vandalism already, so it will help him to have the needed buttons. Hopefully these two changes will help keep the problems down -- User:Sannse|sannse User talk:Sannse|(talk) 09:02, 5 April 2006 (UTC)


I'm sorry, but you've got alot of work to do. Your How to Talk is not written on. There are only 20 episodes that have been edited. Everyone who can, HELP!!! I LOVE the Simpsons! I watch it daily, twice a day, and I've got 10 seasons of the Simpsons. For the love of Jebus, add more! --User:| 04:42, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

I'm not here enough to really work hard on this. I would say Thai420 does a lot more than me!--M Johnson 08:54, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Logo from pt.Wikisimpson[edit]

Of course you can use it here! I'm only asking you, if you could in the page of the Image, put some reference about wikisimpson in Portuguese or my UserPage. And congratulations for your idea of creating a wiki about Simpsons. Without this, I wouldn't have the enthusiasm to create it in Portuguese. Although it have almost no good articles in it, I'm inviting any one who speaks Portuguese to enter it and contribute with something. (sorry for my terrible English, hehe) --Vu2c 16:51, 27 August 2006 (UTC)


May I use you favicon in pt.simpsons??

PS: Once more I forgot to sign my posts... --Vu2c 00:54, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Official Friends of Simpsons Wiki[edit]

Hello, I think I should tell you right now, I am sorry about my signature. I haven't gotten around to fix it yet. But anyway, I would like to know if you are looking for any "Official Friends"? I am an administrator at a wiki called w:c:swgames|SWGames. It deals with the gaming universe of Star Wars. We started January 3, 2007, and we currently have about 200 articles. But we have yet to get many users. I feel that if we were to become friends with this wiki, we could really get some new users. I find this wiki really great! If you are interested, you may contact me on w:c:swgames:User talk:Supergeeky1|my talk page. Thank you very much! {{SUBST:User:Supergeeky1/signature}} 20:24, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Current WikiSimpsons status and activity re vandalism[edit]

Hi ... I'm new here, though I have done a little minor tweaking on Wikipedia before. What is the current status of this wiki? There is no central forum (that I could find), and it took some poking around to find out who is in charge [I think that's you, M Johnson 8-). The help page was empty (I reverted that to the previous non-empty version). There are a number of other empty pages I found, blanked by the same anonymous user about a month ago. Is there a way to block an anonymous user's IP address? Obviously, it won't stop them, but will slow them down a bit. And what are the criteria for protecting frequently-vandalized pages, and how does a newbie request such protection? Thx --User:BartFan1945|BartFan 19:00, 24 May 2007 (UTC)


If you could, I like you to rename my user account to Snake311. -- Alastor Moody (T + C) 00:11, 15 October 2007 (UTC)


May I use you favicon in it.simpsons?? --Furbone 19:06, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

ok, thanks ;-) --Furbone 13:35, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Introducing Wikia's new look:[edit]

Greetings! As many of you have already seen, Wikia is undergoing some major changes to their site layout. As of Wednesday, October 6th, the change will affect both the appearance and how things are done on several wikis, and come October 20th these changes will effect all Wikia sites. These changes are mandatory as this is not simply a new skin option, it’s actually an upgraded version of the core Mediawiki platform itself. Check out "Experience the new Wikia" for a look at some wikis using the new look, Transition guide.

Transitioning to the New Look[edit]

We know you’ve put a lot of work into making your wikis look great in Monaco, so we’ve worked on our end to minimize the amount of effort needed for you to move to the new look. Still, there are some things you’ll want to do in order for your wiki to look its best in the new skin. We strongly encourage you to use our Transition Guide to make this process as smooth and seamless as possible.

Our new Special:ThemeDesigner|theme designer tool will be available to everyone during the first stage of sitewide roll-out on October 6th. This gives you time to experiment with different themes and chat with your community about what looks best before all visitors see your wiki in the new look.

We know that many of you are Wikia experts, and have a ton of experience to share with newer users, who may need more help with the transition. To tap all your knowledge, we will soon be setting up a page where users can request and provide help on the transition.


The next step is to slowly but surely move all wikis over to the new skin. While there may be some tweaks, the projected schedule is below so that you know what to expect over the coming weeks.

October 6, 2010
  • The new look will continue to be default for logged-out users on the beta wikis
  • All logged in users will be able to “switch on” the new look for themselves on any wiki they visit.
  • All new wikis created will automatically use the new look.
  • Every wiki in the Wikia Lifestyle Hub will showcase the new look.
October 20, 2010
  • All users will see the new look on every wiki.
  • Logged in users will have the temporary option of viewing and editing wikis in Monaco.
November 3, 2010
  • The option to use Monaco will be removed.

Discontinued features[edit]

  • The widget dashboard and all widgets are to be discontinued as they were deemed to be underused.
  • "Report a Problem" links will also be discontinued with the new skin as they were not used as intended.
  • "Email a user" link is gone.
  • Page ratings are gone.

New features[edit]

  • New, customizable toolbar that is anchored at the bottom of the screen (Watch the demo video to see how it works.) You will need to learn to use this. (requires JavaScript)
  • New tool for customizing the colour scheme/theme, including default themes.

Other changes[edit]

  • The new look uses a fixed width layout, we are not permitted to change, which might influence the layout of articles quite a bit.
  • Wiki logo is replaced with "Wordmark", which admins can customize by adjusting the text & color, or by uploading an image in the theme designer.
  • Site notice is no longer on every page. It is now located in the Community Corner and users will receive a notification bubble each time it is updated.
  • The wiki navigation that is now on the left sidebar, is moving to the top of the screen. It will have 4 drop down menus, with 7 links each. This is substantially less than we currently have. (requires JavaScript)
  • "My Home" becomes "Wiki Activity" and contains a link to recent changes
  • There is a new sidebar area on the right that takes about 1/3 of each page's width, where the recent activity and other "modules" will sit. More "modules" are being developed for it, but there are currently no plans for user-developed modules.
  • Moved the most recent editor’s name from the bottom of the page to the top, added an avatar, and a new mini-history dropdown menu, which contains the link to the full history. (Supposed to make it more obvious to new users that anyone can edit a wiki.) (requires JavaScript)
  • Two of the categories are listed at top as well the full list at the bottom. Apparently the two chosen will be the categories containing the most pages. There is a blacklist to keep out typical maintenance categories, but it is not wiki specific (atm).
  • Edit and talk buttons will be used instead of written links.
  • The name of the user who uploaded a picture will be listed underneath the image caption on articles.
  • The "Terms of Use" are changed so that we will only have very limited options on what we may change on the new layout that is visible to all users.

Terms of Use[edit]

In keeping with the goals of the new look, our Terms of Use have been updated as well. Admins will no longer be able to completely remove core features for all users by using custom CSS or JavaScript. This is to protect the universal layout and functionality of every wiki on Wikia and ensure that users have access to all of the features available in the new design. Remember, these Help:Customization_policy |new terms only apply to the CSS of the wiki as a whole -- they don’t apply to your personal pages.

To give a few practical examples of what this means: It’s not permitted to remove the right sidebar modules, blogs, and image attribution or add a banner that shifts the entire content area down the page, or alter the fixed width. You can still personalize your wiki with different colors and themes, add large, standout images to the wiki background, create styled templates and tables within the content area. There are plenty of ways to be creative! While these terms will limit what you can do to the overall layout, creativity is still an essential part of Wikia.

If you need any help, or if you have any questions or issues - please feel free to contact me on my talk page and I'll get an answer back to you A.S.A.P.

PostBagBoy says that you are the manager that replaces him because he was founder. You say you don't edit on here much, so why would someone like you become manager? I would think it would be one of the best editors like Mythigator or Solar Dragon. Please tell me on my talk page. Gavinator333 16:40, November 7, 2010 (UTC)Gavinator333
