We've recently been over a number of important topics related to Wikia such as communicating, creating a page, and more. But one of the most important topics is how to protect yourself and your work on Wikia, by getting help dealing with harassment, spam, copyright infringement, etc. Of course we hope that you never come across anything of the sort, but it’s important to know the best steps to take so that we can make everyone’s Wikia experience enjoyable.
Harassment is a serious issue and one that is not taken lightly here at SOE. Harassment can come in the form of taunting, abusive words, offensive images, threats, etc. If another user is doing this to you or anyone else, please report the behavior via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org…

It's been over a month now and we’ve taken you through lots of great tips and tricks on Wikia, such as how to edit a Wikia page, create a new page, add multimedia, communicate, and more. Today we’re here to show you how to better organize the content on a Wikia so that other users can find it easier.
You know that junk drawer in your house that you keep everything in? Then when you need to find something you practically have to pour it out and scour through the entire mess to find what you’re looking for? That's exactly what a Wikia can be like if it's not organized.
Categories serve as tags for Wikia content. For instance, a page about a sword or gun should have the categories "weapons" in addition to more speci…

For the past four weeks we've shown you all sorts of great tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your Wikia experience. We've shown you how to edit a Wikia page, create a new page, add multimedia, and more. Today we're here to show you one of the most important tasks of all – how to communicate!
There are many reasons why you will find it useful to communicate with other Wikia users on a Wikia. For instance, you may want a new page you just created added to the top navigation, and in order to do that, you would need to ask an administrator to add it for you. (You can do this by asking them on their Talk Page.) Another example is when you find a page on a particular topic and want to know more information. Making a po…

We've almost had one full month of Wikia Wednesdays! Last week we showed you how to create a Wikia page on one of SOE's official Wikias. Today we're here to show you how to add multimedia to a page on your favorite SOE Wikia!
Why Add Multimedia to a Wikia?
Have you ever heard the expression, "a picture is worth a thousand words?" In the world of the Internet, this saying couldn’t be truer. Our eyes naturally gravitate towards content that is rich with images and videos, so it's important that these are found on Wikia, too! Multimedia makes the pages more engaging and personable. It can also be even more helpful to a user when there are images of NPCs, maps, etc. Additionally, it's very useful for mobile Wikia users so they don't just see a w…

Why Create a New Page?

After all, most of the content on a Wikia is supplied by contributors just like you.
How to Create a New Page

You've almost certainly been there – you hop on a wiki to look up how to complete a quest or mission and you find it…only to realize that the information is out of date. Luckily you figure out the quest yourself – now YOU have the power to help make someone else’s experience better!
There are many important reasons you will want to edit pages on a Wikia. For instance, you may see incorrect spelling, bad grammar, strange formatting, or just plain wrong information. Since Wikias are a community effort, it takes all of us working together to make s…Read more >
You’ve probably heard Wikias mentioned on a number of SOE games, but you may still be wondering – what is a Wikia? Wikias are an amazing player resource, a place to connect with fellow players and your community managers, and more! Each week we’ll bring you tips and tricks so that you can get the most out of the Wikias. This week, we’re giving you a run-down of what a Wikia is with a basic introduction.

SOE has 11 official Wikias for your favorite games! In 2012 we partnered with Wikia to bring players a new way to enjoy our games – with an online, living strategy guide that everyone can edit and use. We have converted several previously existing player Wikias into official communities. We’ve also built some from the ground up.

We started this portal as a way to bring together the peoples of Norrath. Although the worlds of EverQuest, EverQuest II, and EverQuest Next are quite different from each other, they share many common bounds – namely YOU. The EverQuester who’s been playing for 13+ years, the tradeskiller who wants to help others, the avid lore hound who wants to know how each game is linked together, the artist who wants to show the world renderings of their epic character – it’s all for you.
This new portal site will allow us achieve something we’ve not been easily able to do before – bring together official content alongside fan sites, fan art, fan fiction, and unite a common brand. Right now it points you to each of our official Wikia communities, but ve…Read more >
