Hey TVsGrady! We wanted to run something by you (and we've checked in with Darth Prefect too), as part of our effort to connect fans with the MST3k franchise, we are working with sponsors and partners to place certain content on communities.
This content could be, for example, trailers, DVDs or behind-the-scenes videos for the tv show/movies and would live in a prominent place on all of the pages of your community. The placement is temporary (~2-4 weeks) and is only done with admin consent.
Here's a couple examples that are up and running now, look at the top of the page. You'll notice that the content is completely relevant to the wiki and the sponsor of the sold unit isn't even evident without some digging.
This is a great way to get content that is relevant and interesting to existing MST3k fans as well as drive new fans to your Wikia community! What do you guys think about something like this being featured on this Wikia?
Thanks for clearing the way for me to adopt the wiki. I want to bring to your attention that I will be using the MST3K:Community Portal as a place to discuss changes / goals for the wiki. If and when you feel like coming back to contribute, please do not hesitate to bring up any issues you identify there.
And thanks again for all your work! Darth Prefect (talk) 05:49, January 24, 2015 (UTC)
Do you know if anyone is still trading MST3K tapes? I checked the Trader's Post page, but it looks like it hasn't been updated since 2007. I've been converting my old VHS to DVD, but a lot of the episodes were recorded so badly that they can't play without blacking out.
It seems to me that for the most part, people have moved beyond trading physical tapes to sharing digital copies of the old episodes. If I can manage to find anyone who still does tape trading, I'll let you know.
I've been working on a lot of stuff here lately and would like to do some cleanup of pages, etc. I have experience as an admin on other wikis, so would be happy to take on that here, as well, if you are so inclined. I know you and the other admins aren't around as much as you used to be. Darth Prefect (talk) 19:31, January 14, 2015 (UTC)
Thank you ever so much sir! I hope to copy the RiffTrax pages from the RiffTrax wikia onto the RiffTrax episodes thread and hopefully we can also cover the final films riffed by Cinematic Titanic and other current projects by the MST3k gang.
Hi, my name is Nic and I'm a member of the Wikia Content Development Team. As you may have seen on many wikis such as Call of Duty, there is a new module for the right hand column that displays related videos to the Wiki. This is a new feature that we want to place on your wiki, would you be cool with allowing this? The module can be seen on any page, here is an example .
