Hey, since staff is very busy and not everybody watches the recent activity I'd like it to notice I wrote a thread on the wiki :)
I also left a message on the wall of User:CzechOut. He left a message on another soccer wiki with some ideas about the upcoming World Cup, so I guess he's the staff member into sports, but he hasn't responded up to now: w:c:the-football-database:Thread:11015.
Hello. As you being the Director of Programming I thought this inquiry would partain to you. I notice in the Lifestyle hub Wikia oftens takes their focus to things such as beauty, cooking, excercise,toys, and literature. Something I think (and I being an admin on a wiki of that nature Biblicalapedia) is that perhaps Wikia should also bring into the picture is wikis talking about philosophy and history. Some of Wikia Lifestyle's most popular wikis are about history, and there are wikis also based on philosophy. See I feel like Wikia is focusing all their attention, on what is the most popular, or the things of pop culture. There are even hub wikis for everything else, but not history or philosophy. I would like to meet (on skype instant messaging or wikia chat) chat with you, or the Lifestyle team on how these changes can be met. Thanks
Thanks for dropping me a note. We do normally focus on those areas, since those are areas on Lifestyle that we're actively trying to grow users. But for sure, we would love to help you guys get more exposure for your efforts, but there's no plan to do a separate hub for Philosophy or History. We do focus a lot on pop culture, but we can spread the love around. Want to let me know via my wall when you launch new things you'd like to get help promoting?
You could absolutely create a Philosophy or History Wikia but marking it as a hub doesn't make it an official Wikia corporate hub. Let me know if that makes sense. We could absolutely link to you as a Core community if you like. What is the other wiki you're currently working on?
I Would presume because it wouldn't be staff ran, it would be more community ran. I see that it would be time consuming and would require Wikia hire somebody to do it. If I may ask would I be allowed permission to incorporate the wikia logo into it and make something similar to an official hubs logo. Of course I would need some tips and suggestions if you had any to run it like a hub. My wiki is Biblicalapedia and could fit into two categories, one more than the other. Its more about history than the actual theology (but this is allowed to be discussed) so I would consider it more of a history wiki. We are also on the Books hub (with my good friend Asnow). If I could also ask your advice I do not know if this wiki would fit into any alliances?
