The original Shrek title screen
Added by Airhogs777
A few days ago, I was playing paintball and I happened to take a look at the ground. And naturally, I spend all day thinking about Shrek. So after seeing the green paint-water in the mud, the opening sequence to Shrek was the first thing that popped into my head. If you've ever had an experience like this, where Shrek just happened to be on your mind, leave a comment below!Read more >
Well guess what I came across today. If the title didn't give it away, I saw our wiki's Spotlight.
For those who don't know what a Wikia Spotlight is, it's an ad that shows up on different wikis to advertise the most popular wikis or wikis relevant to current popular subjects.

While working on another wiki, I saw another spotlight for us! You can see it in the slideshow above.Read more >
I've set up an ad on Facebook that will run throughout tomorrow. We're going to see how ads go. Who knows, you might see it on your profile! What do you think of the wording? The picture? Leave your opinions, we want to hear them!Read more >

The Puss in Boots movie is coming out later this year. I'm hoping to be able to request a spotlight by then, but the requirements listed here are:
- The requestor should be either the admin, or link to a discussion with the admin of the wiki and agreeing to the spotlight.
- The wiki should have at least 200 content pages, not counting stubs. Stub articles should make up no more than 1/5th of all pages on the wiki.
- The main page of the wiki should have at least one picture, and clear links to the most important content. It should also be unprotected unless there is a strong history of vandalism.
- The wiki should have a clear category structure to help readers navigate around the site. Every content page should be in a category.
- The wiki should not be …
