Main Page Updates for 2008

New Server

Yay! We've completed our move to the new server. We don't anticipate any problems, but if you notice any issues, please let us know.

So Long and Thanks for all the Shoes

This shit is getting shut down on December 13th. Thanks to everyone who contributed. It was fun. Back up anything you want to save now, and if anyone wants anything after the site gone, let me know, I have full backups.

Update: We found a great host for really cheap. So we're sticking around a bit longer. We'll advise everyone when we're moving.

Fat Discography

I added all the Fat Compilations to the main NameSpace here, you can Click here or at the link in the navigation above to access the Fat Discography. Please use these pages even in the band discographies, and that way, all the bands who have songs on Fat Comps can be linked back to the same page (which means less pages to edit!) If you have questions or concerns, please tell us! Just bring it up in the forum.

I also need info on the Floyd comps, too. If you have that information, please hook it up.

EDIT: Good Riddance and NOFX wikis now have skins, also.

DOUBLE EDIT: American Steel and The Ataris have skins now, too.

New Skins!

UPDATE!

I added skins to the Bad Astronaut, Hi-Standard, Screeching Weasel, and Dickies wikis.

Dickies wikis. haha.

I just made Descendents and Real McKenzies wiki skin. If you can do better, you should send it to us. Here's the link to the Skinning tutorial: So, you wanna create a skin, huh?

Holy Shit!

Thanks to all the new people editing the wiki! This place is exploding! According to the internal wiki statistics this is what's up:

There have been a total of 55,920 page views, and 2,822 page edits since FatWreckWiki was setup. That comes to 2.04 average edits per page, and 19.82 views per edit.

That's awesome! If everyone can get one more person to come and make even a few edits to bands they like, it would help even more. Adam has a thread about how he's getting people involved.

Floyd is also making the rules in the 'Guess Floyd's Middle Name Contest'!!!!

New Logo

We announced this on the message board the other day, but I figured we should make note of it here too. We finally chose a winner for our logo contest and you can see the result in the top left corner of the page.

Video Embedding

We've enabled the embedding of both Hulu and MySpaceTV videos. Simply get the video ID code, and put it inside these tags:

<youtube>videoIDhere</youtube>
<myspace>videoIDhere</myspace>
<hulu>videoIDhere</hulu>

This will allow us greater choice and flexibility when adding a video to the Wiki.

If you have any questions about the wiki, editing, or anything else. Head over to the forum and post or send me a PM from there. I'm glad to help.

-GFS

EDIT: hulu videos are not viewable by our friends outside the US, so use these videos sparingly and only where it is the only legal source of the footage we can post.

New Stuff

19-Jun-08

We registered these two domains: lessthanjakewiki.com and theagainstmewiki.com (just againstmewiki.com was taken! damn!) so if you go to those addresses, it'll forward you to the appropriate page here at FWW.

We also opened editing even to our friends who haven't registered. So if you head over to one of the wiki's and see something you can fix, fix it! It's fun. If you have any questions about how to edit a wiki or what to do, head over to the board and ask for help!

EDIT: these addresses have expired.

Let's Be Friends

The Loved Wiki!

03-Mar-08

We've begun working on the Loved Ones wiki!

Welcome to the Hall of Presidents!!

13-Feb-08

Hello! Welcome to the Fat Wreck Wiki! We're not quite ready for you to start tearing ass through the wiki articles yet. There are still a few more kinks to iron out, but we'd love it if you signed up. We've integrated our message board and wiki account system. So if you sign up at the Forum, you'll be signed up for the wiki. Editing for the wiki is disabled currently. We'll let you know when that changes.


There are some limitations on the characters that you can use. You're able to use a-z, A-Z, and 0-9. Symbols (like @, *, #, %, or even, god forbid, !!!) are not allowed by the wiki system, and due to the integration, are not allowed on the message board either. Sorry if that ruins your username (this is directed to our friends "@" Fat as well), but it'll make everything much smoother.


Check out the thread for the Logo Contest! We're looking for a sweet new logo for the Fat Wreck Wiki, and we're counting on you to do the hard work. But wait! There's a prize.


The winner will get an iPod Shuffle. The Shuffle will come with the complete mp3 discography of Midget Fan Club. I'd put some Fat Music on there, but I don't own the rights to it, sorry!


Email your entry, as a jpg, gif, or png attachment to logocontest@fatwreckwiki.com with your name, address, and the best way to contact you (phone, email, etc.) Good luck!


There will be other contests soon. Keep your eyes peeled for the next one.


Also, we're looking for awesome skins for every Fat Band! If you have some graphic know-how and photoshop prowess, head over to the Skin The Wiki thread on the forum to see how you can create new (or improve the existing) wiki skins.


In closing, we're glad to finally open our (forum) doors to you guys, and we hope you really enjoy the new features and aspects of the site. Remember, this community is driven by the users, and your assistance, donations, contributions, ideas, and presence within the community does not go unappreciated. Have fun, and tell us what you think about the site!


-GFS, and the entire Fat Wiki Community.
