Welcome! Edit

Congratulations on starting My City Life Wiki! It's a brand new project, so it needs a lot of love. Here are five tips to make your wiki great.


  • It's all yours right now -- enjoy it! Once your wiki takes off, lots of people will read what you write. Right now, nobody's looking over your shoulder yet, so feel free to try things out and make mistakes.


  • Make lots of short pages! The hardest thing about writing is looking at a blank page and not knowing where to start. It's a lot easier once you write down your first couple sentences. So take a deep breath, and jump in -- make ten really short pages, one right after another. Once you've started, you can build the pages up slowly, adding a little bit at a time.


  • Link your pages together! Links help you and your readers get from one page to another, so whenever you mention the subject of another page, use the "Add a Link" button to make a link to that page. You should also use the front page to link to all of the most important pages on your wiki. Describe what your wiki is about on the main page, and include links to help your readers find their way around.


  • Add pictures! A well-chosen picture can make a bland wiki page come to life. When you're writing a page, use the "Add a Picture" button to upload a picture from your computer onto the page.


  • When you're ready -- tell your friends! Once you've started a bunch of pages, linked them together and added some pictures, you'll be ready to start showing off your wiki to the world. You probably know people who are interested in the same thing that you are, so tell your friends to check out your new site. Those are your first readers and potential contributors, so give them lots of encouragement.


If you get stuck, write to us through our contact form -- we're happy to help!

Have fun!

Helping out Edit

Hiya Smiley!

My name is Mark (a.k.a. Tedjuh10), and I'm a Helper at Wikia's Gaming Team. As we're currently focussing on Facebook wiki's, this wiki is also going to get some help. With your permission of course! I'm going to create about 50 pages (they aren't very long, but it will attract users), and help you with your SEO (so you'll appear higher at Google). I hope you don't mind me doing this? If so, please tell me! I'll get started with this right now. -- Mark (talk) 18:30, April 16, 2010 (UTC)

Ad free Edit

Hi! Would you like this wiki to be ad-free? I'm looking for wikis to be part of a new program which would remove all ads from the wiki for $19.95/month.

If you are interested, please be visit here to sign up. Let me know if you have any questions! - sannse@Wikia (help forum | blog) 20:14, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, It does stink to have all the ads, but it is pretty pricey --Smiley12 was here at 05:38, June 3, 2010 (UTC)
