New here and not sure where to begin?

When you first come to a wiki, you may not know how to make an edit or where to start. Take a few minutes and read the New to the Wiki? page. That will give you some important tips.

If you make a mistake, don't worry. We can fix pretty much all mistakes, with most of them being fixed by clicking on Undo in the History of a page. As long as you're not deliberately causing problems or spamming, an occasional mistake is no big deal.

If you still need help, leave me a message below and let me know what you need help with. I will see if I can answer your questions. If you left a message for me between September and December 2013, you might want to check archive #4 to see if it was answered before the Message Wall became active.

  • Dear RRabbit42,

    I am Mr. Tomica, and I have something important to tell you. I wrote a message on DJ MC CJ's message wall, saying that we should merge Tom Gammill and Max Pross' pages into one. If you haven't read the message, please do so as soon as you can. The message contains the reasons why I think they should be merged. However, he didn't actually respond to it, despite the fact that I said it was important. I have created a poll on both of the pages' talk pages asking the other users if the two pages should be merged together. I and another user were the only ones who voted on the poll and we both voted yes. I just need to know how to get more users to vote on the poll to see what their opinions are. And one more thing, seeing how I'm not an administrator, I can't delete pages completely, so I'm relying on you or any other administrator to delete either one of the two pages and after that rename the remaining page to "Tom Gammill & Max Pross". I'm Mr. Tomica as I said before. Goodnight.

  • Is it against the rules for advertising other wikis? If not I really need help on a wiki I created not long ago.

  • I wish to add pics to some of the galleries, specifically the Shauna Chalmers page. Do screenshots, or cropped-pics of screenshots qualify as acceptable pics for the galleries? And what is a preferred size limit for said pics?

    • Screenshots are allowed and we prefer those over fan art or "grabpics", which pictures where someone draws a picture using a program like MS Paint and tries to make it look like official artwork.

      The largest file size you can upload is 10MB. Most pictures should be way below that. If you use .jpg format and keep the compression set to about 10% ("low compression" or "high quality" in some programs), it looks about the same as a .png picture and is much smaller. There's a few cases where you would use .png, but most of the time, use .jpg.

  • Hi I was just wondering if you could divert some attention back to this plan we had earlier: http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Jhonevans/Category_Overhaul

    I still notice that many edits on this wiki are the adding/removal of categories and it's utter chaos. Policing this edits is difficult because everyone has their own rule in regards to them and it's just a huge waste of time. Please get back to me on this.

    • Also just to double check before I go ahead and tell the whole wiki about it, we're removing age from the character template right? Because although there's edit warring and complication with some characters that would require citation (eg. Homer), there are characters with ages that are obvious (eg. Bart and Lisa's school mates). So should we remove the age factor totally from template or just tighten up on ambiguously-aged characters?

  • Hi :)

    I saw a vandalism in the page of Milhouse Van Houten (http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/Milhouse_Van_Houten?diff=580517&oldid=580470) but I can't undo because I don't have account.

    Thank you !

  • This page (http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Bart%C2%B4s_wife) needs to be cleaned up. Jenda is the only canon character that Bart has married, although in the future. Jenda, Sherri and Terri have never been married to Bart.

  • In Season 11, episode 17 Bart to the Future Maggie had a child who looks exactly like her in every way named Maggie, so why isn't there anything about that on Maggies profile under relatives it doesn't talk about her I just wanna know why.

  • Hello,

    It's Solar Dragon from Wikisimpsons. Tina.g.sherwin has been stealing our content. I have removed much of it and added delete templates, but there is probably more. Could you do something about this and make sure she doesn't steal our content again? Thank you

    • Hey, we never did that. We took the content that WE created and moved about with it. We were perfectly within our rights to do that. Then, users who never worked on the content moved in and claimed it to be their own. Then, users here steal the content that WE created later, and claim it as their own.

      If you wrote a book, and then someone else took it, published it, and claimed to be the writer of it, how would you like that? Same principal here. We made the content, worked on it for a few years, the entire active community then moved out, taking the content we created with us. And Wikia refused to delete it.

      It wasn't plaigarism. We were pefectly within our rights, and we took the full article history too, crediting the individual contributors. Well within the copyright law.

      And, the fact it, many of the articles we moved with have been vastly changed since then, making them different from the ones here.

      And, you don't know the full history. It wasn't just about the skin change. Staff butted in to our conversations, "closed" active discussions, removed admin rights without asking the community, blocked contributors for disagreeing with them. We left because staff were tyrants, only caring about the amount of money they got from ads.

      You're not fooling me and everyone on this site, pal. I've been around too long on Wikia to know when someone is lying to me and that "innocent" act isn't working either.

      That was your first mistake today, lying to me. I saw the evidence, which is still on this site. Was all this drama really worth it?

      Also, all of our content here have since improved as well, with the hard work from every single user on here.
