This extension is not normally active but may be available on request.

The Community Page feature is a launching point for editors on a community, bringing together information about recent activity and suggestions for pages to improve. In particular, it can help new editors become familiar with the community they're joining and areas where the wiki leadership has indicated need assistance.

How to reach it

CommunityInNav

On communities where it is active, it can be found at Special:Community and can be easily reached by clicking:

  • the "Community" link on the "Explore" tab of the wiki navigation bar, or
  • the "Get Started" button that appears at the right rail on article pages.
First Edit

Upon making their first edit to a wiki, users will also receive a message asking if they want to go to the Community Page of the wiki to get started.

The Community Page contains:

  • A large banner image to show off your community's topic
  • Many suggestions for pages to edit and improve on the left side, including several lists picked from Special:Insights and an area for admins to provide their own suggestions and advice.
  • Community information on the right side, including recently active admins, top contributors and recent arrivals.
  • A location to link to your community policies, plus links to important help pages.

How it works

Banner image and text
From the community
  • This is an area where admins can provide a wide range of suggestions and pointers for new contributors. For example, it could:
    • Point visitors to pages of particular importance, such as an upcoming release
    • Link categories of pages in need of updating, like Category:Stubs
    • Direct users to the best place to ask questions
    • Request comments on a current topic of discussion, such as new Chat guidelines
    • Examples: The Elder Scrolls Wiki, League of Legends Wiki, Destiny Wiki
  • Normal article wikitext can be used here and can be any length.
  • The contents can be edited by admins via the "Edit list" link, or at MediaWiki:Community-to-do-list.
Top contributors this week
  • This list resets on Sunday night / Monday morning - specifically, around 00:00 UTC on Monday.
  • Uploading an image/video and adding it to a page are counted separately.
  • Note: rankings are not tracked over the long term, and there are no rewards for being high in the list.
