  • Hey is it alright if I become a Wikia Volunteer on here so that I can be a trainee because I seriously want to work from Australia for wikia and I just want to start from the beginning and make my way up to a working employee of Wikia. Because I think it would be cool working for you's. You get to meet cast and crew of movie franchises and question them on the movies, plus loads more.

      Good luck!

  • I had some further extensions to my ideas on a Wikia Books app. Perhaps Wikia could partner with some book publishers that publish a large amount of the YA books and specific publishers for specific books in order to obtain copies of them. To obtain an online-accessible version of the book on wikia that includes built in wiki-linking as well as somehow links to forum discussions etc. Then in order to generate profit as well as handle licensing costs advertisements can be placed and links to ordering a real-life copy of the book and/or the publisher's book store. This can be done in a wiki format where users can add in links (and the links on hover can show a paragraph or so from the wiki article it's linking to and then open it up to read more about the character). This could be made into an app and be on Wikia and would be an excellent start for a comprehensive book platform. Also it can functions as in actual book such as bookmarks etc and for those leading a book club people can add in markers that say where it needs to be read to. Annotations can even be added to the side. I know this might be a resource consuming but I think it would be worth it for Wikia. Similar to LyricWiki it takes a lot of copyright and licensing but Wikia could still profit off it. This can be a staff-only tool to create such a wiki and users can request these wikis to be made. If deals are obtained with major publishers such as HarperCollins, Penguin Publisher, Scholastic this can provide a large amount of books to be in that format or a series. I would reccomend perhaps reviewing over books upon user request and popularity to see whether or not specific books would be worth licensing. I would love to help out with the idea, but of course I wouldn't be able to do any of the legal things etc but I can create documentation on the idea and help develop it. Let me know about your thoughts.

  • I recently adopted The Mortality Doctrine Wiki, its a wiki about James Dashner's new book series of the same name. I was wondering if there was any way the wiki would gain contributors through the Books Hub? I'm sure that there are people here who've read the series (since The Maze Runner is very popular), and we need all the contributors we can get (I'm currently just one out of 2 active contributors).

    Maybe a spot on the Books template?

    I'm new to editing on Book wikis so I'm not all that familiar with how things go here. Thanks!

  • Could you add Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Wiki to the books template please? It's an upcoming Norse mythology-based book series by Rick Riordan.

  • Hi, just wondering have wikia got any spare copies of the divergent movie companion as all the book stores I have gone to say they are out or don't sell it. I have been looking for seven months and I am just about to give up the search. So I was wondering if I could have a copy because I have been hunting on for ages and I am about to give up in the search.

    Plus to make things worse, one of the books have made a mistake in it, like the Divergent Initiates guide it says that Al is from Amity and in which he is from Candor, is there anyway that I could notify the writer of this book. Because us fans want to have the correct knowlegde, like it has annoyed me, why can't they get the right information to us.

    • Hi there!

      Aw no, I'm sorry!! Unfortunately we don't have any copies. You can try to contact Veronica Roth through her website? We don't have any direct contacts.

      Have you tried looking for a kindle or online version? Good luck! Asnow89 @@Wikia (profile)•(talk) 18:23, January 14, 2015 (UTC)

    • Yeah and nothing, it is annoying me, that I can't purchase anything because they can't ship to Australia and I am about to give up.

  • Hey Ariana!

    As you know, I really love the Paper Gods trilogy by Amanda Sun! You may not know, however, that the final book comes out this summer! I haven't been very active on the Paper Gods wiki, but I plan on re-reading the first book (and finally picking up Rain, book 2) this year around April (and May, respectively).

    So, my question, what do you think about having Ink (book 1) as the April (or March/May/June even) Y.A. Society Reads book of the month? I think it would be a really cool choice, as it takes the reader to a (possibly) new environment, as well as being a fun and quick read! I also think it might help bring some other user activity to the wiki!

    I understand if you can, but I figured I should at least ask! Thanks for your time!

    • Hi Bloody!

      I love that idea- thanks so much for reaching out! Unfortunately-- the books of the months are planned out a year in advance (so we can get authors on board, etc.) by our Marketing team BUT we've had a few users ask about creating their own, which is why we have something called Mini Book Club.

      I'd love it if you started a mini book club- I could help promote it on the hub and on our social media platforms to help spread the word. If you want, you can even host it on the Paper Gods wiki and just send me links from there to promote.

      Thanks again for reaching out! Hope this helps a bit and let me know if you need brainstorming or help spreading the word :)

  • I have just released some news on the Fifty Shades of Grey wikia and would like you to have a look at it.

    Please click here to access the blog I am talking about.

    • Awesome! I'll promote it on the hub - thanks for sending that link to me. P.S. I switched "Elle Goulding" to "Ellie Goulding".

      Thanks :)!

    • Would you consider building out this page here? I can help too, but I thought it would be a good idea to start listing out the names of the songs and posting some videos.

      Let me know what you think!
