Hi, I'm an admin over at the other finding carter wiki. I just wanted to know if you wanted to merge the wikis together? Neither I or my fellow admin would want admin rights here. I'd just redirect the url here and hopefully up your traffic. You can take any information we have that isn't on here, css, our background since I see you don't have one etc :)
I think I know you from the iZombie Wikia? :p But I'm for that, I just don't know how the merging thing really works. I also wouldn't mind it if you or your fellow admins would want to have admin rights here, as it would be nice to have active admins helping clean up vandalism, etc.
How does merging work? Is there anything I need to do to make it possible/ready? o.o
I'm the main admin there yeah, I knew your username looked familiar! Great, I think you have most of the information covered but I can start cross checking it to make sure. If there is missing information here it can just be copy pasted onto here. Same goes for any css we have and if you want our background I can give you the file. At the moment I'm pretty busy with my two main wikis so I was never really active on there. As for my co-admin she doesn't have an interest at the moment since she's also pretty busy. Altough she said she might reconsider in the future.
I'll definitely help you move the info or whatever else you might want, and once thats done I'll put in a request to staff to redirect the url here :)
Awesome! I'll try to cross-examine the pages of things, too, which might actually mark some things off my to-do list, which... that's awesome. XD
The background would be cool to have, if you don't mind. I didn't know there was another Finding Carter Wiki, or else I probably would have contributed to that one more instead of adopting this one. :x
I already started a little, I'll continue helping out tomorrow! No problem I was aware of this one but it was mostly innactive so I couldn't really contact anyone, until I saw you adopted it :P Sure thing here is the file, you should tick both tile and fix in theme designer:
Ah, alright. :) I've done some and will continue later today, after I have recharged. I think I might want some of the CSS from your wiki, mostly because it might allow this wiki to look better with the background? If it's not too much trouble, it would be nice; otherwise, it's not absolutely necessary.
Sure you can take whatever you like :) What specifically did you want? So I pretty much went trough all pages and added what wasn't here. Apart from images because I don't know how you organize your gallery.
I sort of adopted methods of the American Horror Story Wiki and SEO. It's mostly with the naming, and I don't mind if I just have to add categories... I can also rename images and just set up redirects, so it's not too big of a deal. :)
But I'll try to move over some of the images tonight. I do try to avoid using GIF/moving files in non-forum, non-blog post, and non-user pages, because an MTV Wikia got hit for that a while back and was told not to use GIFs in main article pages, and so far, I haven't received any alerts about any penalties. Either a CW or ABC Family one got hit for using fan art, because users were uploading fan art that didn't belong to themselves/etc., and the original authors got upset and that created drama, which... is nice to avoid.
The page colors would be nice, but I can also use the "Inspect element" feature in Firefox to view it and just read through the CSS for the hex codes. I considered changing the page background to work with transparency, but... I didn't realise I would also have to change the Wiki logo. >.> But white on dark purple is kind of really cruel, so is it okay if I do take that? It might also help to have the Wiki sort of look similar to the other, so users don't get too confused, or... something. I can't think straight right now, because I forgot to eat lunch and should get to that. :p
Yeah I never upload gifs I didn't mak myself I know some people have run into trouble with that. I can give you our wordmark or change the colour of it for you if you want. As for the colours I use #cae340 for yellow, and #701484 for purple.
I just noticed there are affiliates—do I need to add them to a list on this wiki's homepage? Also, how does one go about getting affiliates on Wikia? I don't know how that works... do people have apps, or do you just comment an admin's wall?
Alright so I can message the staff now? Oh yeah that would be nice if you added them :) As for the affiliation I just ask admins on other wikis and then add them to the affiliates section if they agree.
