Wikia will be changing it's look over the next 2 weeks. The current Monaco skin and the format of the page are going to completely change to a wikia css format, bringing with it new options and a brand new, sleek look. The beta for the new look has been out for several weeks, and the admins of this wiki have been participating so that we know that to expect and how to cope with the change.
Basically, designing a new skin will become not a matter of coding but picking pictures and colors with a few clicks of the mouse.
- The wiki sidebar navigation has now been moved the top of each page, for quick access to the most important links on your wiki. The sidebar has also been made smaller and the tiers of choices of pages has been taken away in ord…

I have decided not to install the Wikia Badge feature for a variety of reasons. Let me begin by describing the system. The badge system would put into place a system where users could gain badges and points for doing various tasks around the wiki, such as adding images, blog posts, comments on articles, and just regular edits on pages. You would also gain points along with every badge you earn, thus creating a list of users ranked by how many points and badges they have. While this system may seem interesting and cool, I believe that there are some serious downsides that this system would generate.
- It would turn the wiki into a game, where any edit (no matter how small) would count towards the badge system. While this might inspire more pe…
I have asked the sole bureaucrat and other admin besides myself (Anthil'za) for her to grant me Bureaucratship. I believe that I have proven myself to be a good and steady editor, as I have edited several times a week for the past 2.5 years that I have been an admin, and usually try to edit several times a day. I have also tried my best to expand the wiki, gain new users, and make it an outstanding compilation of information on the Andromeda universe. If anyone would like to object, comment or express support, please comment. Acaeton 02:18, July 24, 2010 (UTC)Read more >
Would anybody be able to or want to participate in a chat group about this wiki? Any subject could be covered from editing to discussion of episode. It would be a big help for collaborating and talking about the series, and I think that it would be a lot of fun. Anybody else feel this way?Read more >
This is pretty much a plea for help from everyone that has edited on this Wikia. To be blunt, people need to edit more, in every sense of the word. Since i became an editor of this Wikia a little less than a year ago, I have been doing a majority of the editing, and while we do have a couple people who edit on a regular basis, most people that edit on this Wikia only add half a sentence or a couple of words, or sometimes just remove or add a space. I've seen only 2 instances of where someone has created a new page here, and there have been almost no large edits of pages at all by any users. I'm not trying to sound bossy or vindictive, but if this Wikia is going to grow at more than a snails pace we need more people to edit. You don't have …Read more >
