Welcome to the Wikia Guestbook! Inspired by the craze of autograph books at Wikipedia, the Wikia Guestbook allows you to create a page that your friends and other wiki users can sign.
If you need help, please ask in the forum.
There are 5 steps and they're all described on this page:
- Get a user name
- Get a cool signature
- Create your userpage
- Create your guestbook
- Ask your friends to sign your guestbook
Get a user name
Log in or make an account. Once you have a username, you also get a place to create your own user page, your own discussion page, and your own guestbook where your friends can add their signatures.
Get a cool signature
Visit your preferences and add a signature.
Make sure you check the Raw signatures (without automatic link) box.
To get a sig like this:
- Example ~~Sign my guestbook~~
add this code to the nickname box in your preferences:
[[User:Example|<span style="background:pink; font-family:Monotype Corsiva; font-size:14pt; color:black;">Example</span>]] <sup>[[w:c:guestbook:User:Example/Guestbook|<span style="color:chartreuse;"> ~~Sign my guestbook~~</span>]]</sup>
Feel free to change the colors and fonts. Make you sure you change "example" to your own user name!
Note: The w:c:guestbook: in the example above makes the link work across all Wikia sites.
Create your userpage
If you're logged in, you have your own user page. There's a link to it in the top right of every wiki page.
You can add information to your user page on which wikis you edit and a list of your friends who you want to sign your guestbook.
Create your guestbook
Your guestbook is a page where anyone on the wiki can add their autograph. You can put an introduction at the top and then add a ==Signatures== heading where people can sign and leave you a message.
Ask your friends to sign your guestbook
You can ask your wiki friends to sign by leaving them a message on their user talk page. Your user talk can be found here. You can leave a message for a friend on this wiki by typing their name in the box below:
To get even more signatures, you can invite your friends who aren't yet on the wiki. Use Special:InviteSpecialPage to easily send a message to everyone you want to sign your guestbook!
You can link to your Guestbook on other sites, such as MySpace like this:
- <a href="http://guestbook.wikia.com/wiki/User:Example/Guestbook">Autograph my page at Wikia Guestbook!</a>
It will display as:
- Autograph my page at Wikia Guestbook!
Make sure you change "Example" to your username.
