  • Hello. Recenlty I have been developing some things in the eworks to hopefully revamp some of the things I have started here on Books Hub. There is much I am working on and I was wondering if I could have your wikia email, so we may talk more privately about what I am doing (I would also like to interview you or ask you about your thoughts on what i am working on and having what you say shared when I publicly announce this stuff). Please let me know if you can give me this information. 

    Thanks,

  • Hello Asnow. I had a few questions for you concerning the new Wikia Global Navigation, with Wikia Books Hub in particular. So since the new global navigation will be released and the hubs will will WAM be replaced with hub particular statistics rather than the 3 major hubs? Also since this is becoming a big launch of hubs I was wondering if you would consider it the appropiate time to perhaps start working efforts on the Bible as a Book here again? I was also wondering how I could get the Bible listed sometime on the Global Navigation under Books? I am also wondering what happened to the "Suggest a Story" feature and if it would be possible  to suggest a story? Thanks

    • Hi superdadsuper!

      So unfortunately I don't control most of the stuff on the hub or the navigation. Not sure about your WAM question either. It's always a great time to work on the Books Hub but that's also entirely up to you!

      Hmm not sure where the Suggest a Story feature went but I'm happy to help out if you have a relevant community story! Link it to me and I'll see what I can do :) Asnow89 @@Wikia (profile)•(talk) 16:27, October 6, 2014 (UTC)

    • I was wondering if you could give me links to staff members who could help me with the first two questions? For the suggest a story I may suggest one via the feature on the mainpage I was wondering if there were any guidelines on how it should relate to books (I am thinking about suggesting a story related to the Bible, and I need to time it correctly with other contributions on biblical content on Books Hub).

    • You'll have to contact our Support team here. I don't have any specific contacts for you, but they should be able to help!

      As for guidelines-- it should be something current and relevant. Something newsworthy related to your wiki content! Check out the "From the Community" section on the hubs page for inspiration.)

      Hope that helps :) Asnow89 @@Wikia (profile)•(talk) 17:57, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Asnow, what would it take to have the Magicians wiki added to the book wikis and template (under fantasy)? I'm not an admin on the wiki but it'd be nice if it was in the list. Would it also be alright if I added the books here?

    • Oops. Annette sent us the book 2 months ago(?) so I thought you also read it. Alright, I'll tell you more once you've read it.

    • Ah yes we received a few copies in the office!! So I have one ready to read, but I have one more book to finish first :) I'll send you a message when I've finished it!

  • As we have discussed previously before you often advise me to create contents, top ten lists and such on Biblicalapedia since such things cannot be officially promoted by Wikia. As I am lacking a community right now (working on a really big project behind the scenes in the real world but as you can figure its going very slow), and lacking interest from those at Wikia Book Club I wonder if you had any reccomendations to where an excellent platform to promote and publish Biblical-book club content and programming? Thanks.

    ps: As I have been busy with this project and the so far unsucessfulness of the Book Club  programming I have more inactive here. If the Bookclub programming becomes a valuable and community attracting resource I may be able to take my time and efforts on it, otherwise my resources are needed elsewhere.

    • You should request to be promoted on Special Promote. Also, if you check out Community Central there are a lot of great tips and tricks!

      Book Club is still growing so I'm not sure if it's the best place to promote the Bible Wiki for now, but in the future if it grows more! You should check out Literature Wiki as well. Good lucK!

    • Okay thank you

    • You could try affiliating with wikis that deal with biblical elements, whether they be books, movies, or TV series. Since Biblicalapedia is an encyclopedic wiki about the Bible, try reaching out to communities that are also similar, not just in terms of topic, but encyclopedic content. What I would also recommend is going around to popular wikis and creating a blog about your wiki, and asking an admin on the wikis to promote Biblicalapedia through forum or the main page.

      That's all the help I can give. Hope it helps and good luck with your wiki!

  • Hi there, Ariana (if I may call you that). I'm new to Wikia, and I have a few questions about Books Hub.

    • What is the purpose of Books Hub?
    • Is there anything I can do here to help out?
    • Why aren't the categories showing up after I add them? Is it a bug or something?
      Loading editor
    • Hi there! Welcome to the Books Hub! The purpose is to create a base network for all of the book wikis on Wikia. We want this to be a place for people to come and create a page for their book wiki to get the word out to other readers.

      We also host something called YA Society Reads, which is a monthly book club. You can read more about that here!

      We would love your help!! This is our To Do List, which includes book wikis that need pages on our Hub. Please use the Books Template when adding new book pages. Weird about the categories-- that must be a bug. I'll look into it!

      Thanks for reaching out :)! Best, Asnow89 @@Wikia (profile)•(talk) 17:32, September 2, 2014 (UTC)

  • An idea I came up with is perhaps a Wikia Book app that is more or less the "Wikia Game Guides" for books. I was wondering if it were possible perhaps creating this as sort of project, and if I can contribute to it? let me know,

    Thanks

    • Love that idea. Our product team is always looking for app ideas, so I forwarded this to our marketing director and she is interested in pitching the idea! Unfortunately, if this idea is picked up it would probably not become a reality until next year because it takes a long time to build apps.

      If this can become a reality, I will keep you on my short list of people to approach about helping out!

      Thanks for reaching out! Always open to new ideas :) Asnow89 @@Wikia (profile)•(talk) 22:25, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

    • I would love to also give out my ideas on what I think the app could include (I will list some here):

      1. Be similiar to game guides in allowing you to add favorite communities and browse content

      2. With certain books (and it can always be a work in progress) have a way to purchase books via Amazon, Google Play etc and then sort of have wiki-content add-on to be alongside reading the book

    • I would love to also be able to get my wiki in particular involved (though it can be a bit different it being, well a Bible Wiki)

        Loading editor
    • Great, I will forward the recommendations! I'm not sure how Bible Wiki could be more involved than other communities, but if it comes up I'll let them know your interest. Thanks!!
