Hi Sheeri -- we are excited to have Drizzle Wiki as part of the Wikia community!
Starting a new wiki can be a big job, but don't worry, the Wikia Community Team is 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!
- Our guide to Getting Started gives you 5 things you can do right now to set your wiki up for success
- 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 are new to wikis in general than we recommend checking our new user FAQ
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, Catherine Munro
Hi again, Sheeri! Just checking in to see how things are going. I see a lot of activity on Special:Recentchanges -- that's good! As an admin, one of the most important things you can do is to help foster a sense of community, so please make sure to say hello to your new users. If you see a red "talk" link on the Recent changes list, it means no one has talked to that person yet -- take a little time each day you're here to look for new editors and thank them for their contributions and encourage them to keep coming back. If you like, you can use Template:Welcome (and customize it however you like).
Hello, my name is Federico and I subscribed because I would like to translate some articles into italian. I think it would be useful. Would it be appreciated? If so, I need some instructions. I can edit Wiki pages, but I don't know how to add new languages. I'm contacting you because it seems that you are the most active wiki editor. Thanx and bye --Sante Caserio 03:21, 29 August 2008 (UTC) (Federico)
