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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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
We have a sweet myspace profile set up. so add us!
We're open! Go! Edit away, you crazy, Fat lovin' bastards!
Here are links to some of the more popular bands:
And the complete list of bands can be found here or on the menu to the left, which is on all pages of the site.
Have fun out there, guys! Let us know ASAP if anything goes weird on you!
The Loved Wiki!
We've begun working on the Loved Ones wiki! We're setting up the templates and figuring out how we want the pages to look over there, then we'll make templates to make adding the wiki pages for your favorite bands easier. If you'd like to see if there is any way that you can help out now, check out the thread for development of the site at the forums.
Donations are still coming in, and we still appreciate your interest! If you'd like to donate to help cover server costs, etc, click the donations link to the left.
If you're bored waiting to wiki, go check out the WrecksBox Arcade!
The contest for the logo is going to end soon. So don't forget to send your submissions to us here: firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP!

Welcome to the Hall of Presidents!!
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.
