Hi Zakgreant -- we are excited to have FOSSCoach as part of the Wikia community!

Starting a new wiki can be overwhelming, 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, CatherineMunro


Hey Zak, you've got some really great looking pages started here! I'm glad to see you off to such an energetic start. Is there anything I can do to help you achieve your goals here?

There are many things you can do to customize and enrich your wiki. You might want to look at some of the skins available to you under Special:Preferences -- as admin, the skin you choose under "Admin options" on the "Skin" tab becomes the default skin for all of your anonymous and logged-in visitors. The "Jade" option might look really nice with your green logo! We also have many extensions available to embed things like maps, videos, and other rich content. I'm happy to help you explore your options.

Please drop me a line and let me know where you'd like to go next! — Catherine (talk) 04:47, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi Zak, nice work getting things started around here. I've uploaded a logo for the Monobook skin, based on your Monaco logo. Good luck! :) -- Manticore (talk) 14:44, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
