- 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.

Have fun!-- Sannse
Merlin wiki block by admin Dryuu Edit
Sorry to bother you here MrThermomanPreacher, but I guess it was a good thing I asked which wikias you were an admin of when you were applying to be admin at Merlin wikia. Now, Dryuu has been applying to have bureaucrat's power over at Merlin. Not that I don't appreciate what he has done for the community, but since I didn't ask this when he was applying to be admin, I thought to ask in him if he to provide the link to his offer by wikia staff to have bureaucratic's rights, as well as other wikias he may have been an admin of. Instead of a reply, however, my IP (the one I use right now) has been banned with no stated reason. I think this is an abuse of power so if you cannot remove his admin status (he has been working hard despite this lack of judgement) then I would like to ask the ban to be rescinded. Thank you for your time.
