Hullo! I am Kirkburn, your friendly local Wikia Gaming Helper!

You may have seen our recent announcement about the changes on Wikia - if not, please visit Wikia's New Style on Central Wikia. It's a little complex, so I recommend a thorough read.

To ensure your wiki continues to work properly, there are two main things that you need to be done:

  1. Ensure you have a 135x155px logo at Image:Wiki.png. This will be your new logo. Wiki_wide.png will be going away.
  2. Update your main page column formatting code with new column tags. This will ensure that your main page will not break when we add the new ad unit.

I have drafted a main page using the new tags on User:Kirkburn/Dev which I hope you can take a look at - feel free to make a copy and edit it. Though the layout may seem restrictive at first, there really is a fair amount you can do with them - for example see these customized main pages - w:c:muppet, w:c:wowwiki, w:c:ffxi. You may want to chat with your wiki community about what direction to take with a new main page.

If you encounter any problems with the new tags, please let us know.

My apologies for any inconvenience these changes bring.
Thank you for your time, Kirkburn (talk) 15:59, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
