Since BZP doesn't allow linking to sites with blogs, the blog feature has been turned off through the new Wiki Features settings. This doesn't change much, as using them wasn't allowed before, but now you know.
As a result of the general lack of activity of the staff and on the wiki in general, we've decided to merge the two featured sections into one 'featured article,' which should make it easier for us to update the section somewhat more frequently.
Now that the school year is starting to slow down, I'd like to get some changes done here, which have been waiting to happen for a while. While this is happening, there's a good chance that I won't be able to get everything done at one time, so the templates will probably not match and/or look strange for a while.
As you probably noticed, the Wiki looks different now. As of today, using the Monaco look for Wikia isn't an option, so we have to use either the new look or Monobook. Personally, I'd encourage you to use Monobook if you're comfortable with the old look, since it's the most similar. You can change your viewing mode on your preferences page. Of course, that's your choice.
Also, as a reminder, if people are going to link here from BZPower, we can't use the blog pages at all and we can't use talk pages as places to chat. And since this is the BZPower Comics Wiki, it'd be good if we could be linked to.
There's been quite a few new articles made lately that basically just say "_______ is a character in _______'s Comics". These articles are just useless stubs and they're probably not going to be expanded at any time soon. So, please, don't create new articles unless you can actually fill it with enough content, alright?
In 2008, shortly after I began comic making, I had an idea: Wouldn't it be convenient and fun to have a wiki for BZPower Comics? I asked my friend Blade Titan what he thought of this, and he agreed with me. On May 23, 2008, I created this wiki, and it's grown a lot since then--even people like Dokuma and Razor have come here. Though I admit I haven't been active lately (nor have the other administrators, but hey, we've got Ziko and Kahinuva as our slaves moderators to take care of that), I'm glad to see that people are finding a use for it and that it's gone so well over the past two years. Thank you.
Gentlemen, the issue of administrative inactivity has now been rendered somewhat irrelevant, thanks to the introduction of the moderator position on the wiki. Confused? I direct your attention this-a-way. Thanks!
Just in time for the new year, the other admins and I have created a list of rules for the wiki! Additionally, we are doing all we can to about the problem with the spammers. Unfortunately, Wikia does not have any way to protect every page, so we have to protect them all individually. I'll leave you on that incredibly positive note.
A couple of days ago, another wiki was created, known as the BZPower Epics Wiki. Since I'm pretty sure there are a fair few people in the Artwork III community who also do epics, I thought it would pay to bring this new establishment to everyone's attention. I see much potential for that wiki, perhaps more so than this, so I urge anyone here involved in BZP's Epics community to give the BZPower Epics Wiki their support as well. Thanks.
I'm in the process of experimenting with upgrading the infoboxes. Loopy things may happen on all pages currently using the Character infobox, but don't worry, these will hopefully abate in short order.
Dear BZP Comics Wiki proletariat, unless your name happens to be "Blade Titan974", "VakamaTK", "Dokuma" or "Turaga Dlakii", kindly refrain from editing the front page, please. Oh right, it's no longer an option for you lot. After discussing the matter with the rest of the administration, normal members can once again no longer edit the main page. After all, leaving it open to the public makes little sense at all. Thanks and such.
Thank you all so much for your edits that have sustained the wiki! Just as a heads-up, the other admins and I are in discussions over various ways we can make this place run more smoothly. Thought you guys would like to know that no one's forgotten this place... not in the least. ;D
No, I haven't been gone, just inactive. Heh. Seriously, I'm working five days this week, playing three gigs on the weekend, and I'm a full-time college student, cut me some slack. =P But listen, my plan is to move the permissions back on this page to admins-only within the next few weeks. Just wanted to give you guys a heads-up so it doesn't look like I'm suddenly locking you out. I do appreciate the effort you've all made to keep this wiki on life support. However, it has also come to my attention that there has been much controversy over the past few days... these debates need to end. These are children's toy sites, so contrary to popular belief, the internet is not serious business. Let's do everything we can to make this community a friendly place.
Due to Dokuma not updating the Featured Articles for 8 days, I decided to step in and I chose none other than Matreid and Operation: LOSER - a renowned (but now largely obscure) comic veteran and the second MAS on BZPower.
With permission from myself and Blade, Kahinuva has made the "Featured Collaboration" section seen above. For those who didn't notice, this month's Collaboration is Sprites. How could such a central article be so lacking? Get to work on it!
Some changes have been made to the Help:Editing page, including a list of general guidelines for the wiki. If you have some free time, please take a look at them, so we're all on the same page. Thanks! :D
BZP Comics Wiki's First Anniversary! - 25 May 2009
One year ago, I decided to make this wiki for everyone to use. The use has grown a lot since then, and the other staff members and I are still figuring out what to do for this date. Also, it was actually on the 23rd, but I was out of town and without Internet access and it seems nobody did this while I was gone. Anyway, we hope to see many more anniversaries here on the BZP Comics Wiki!
Hey guys, I just want to remind you that the purpose in my choosing these two particular featured articles this month (Spitty and Randamonium!) was so that the users of this Wiki could start working on expanding the content of these are related pages. Let's not let this month go by without doing so! I don't want to keep seeing all those red links in the writeups on the featured articles. Start editing, guys!
Congrats to us! The Wiki has reached 500 Articles! Now, THIS is a special announcement, because in the Entertainment Wikis section of Wikia, we will be seen with a "Bronze Metal", as I call it! That's gonna make us look good. :P Oh, and once we get a new router, and I figure out how to connect to it with my laptop, I'll try to be more productive here. Hopefully, I won't be addicted to a game at that time.--Blade Titan974 00:46, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Also, I have not been active much due to excessive homework (I had four projects due this week; my teachers ALL give projects around the same time), but I may have more time in the future. Keep in mind that over here school gets out in June, not May like in some other places. But it gets back in in September, not August.
It's been a month since the last Featured Articles Update, so I've taken the liberty of selecting Spitty and Randamonium! for the spotlight. Frankly, we don't have enough content on this wiki about those two, so let's focus on that this month. Also, it is my vision for this wiki to add boatloads of content about series like Project Klinkerpoop, Psycho Dogs and Carbonated Beverages, and other similar series that have made the MOST impact on BZPower Comics, yet often paid the LEAST attention. Edit away, guys!
I just figured out how to change this thing called a favicon. If you see something different from the yellow W next to the address bar, that means it worked. It should be a shrunken version of the logo (with Hapori Tohu) that Dokuma made.
Okay, the sever's been down. It's not my fault. Deal with it. <.< >.>

Featured Articles - March 11 2009
Yes, I am choosing these simply by clicking the "Random Page" button.

Featured Articles - March 4 2009
Since Dlakii has pretty much disappeared off the face of the earth, I've pretty much taken on the Featured Articles responsibility. I'll try to keep this going as long as possible, as I have enough free time on my hands. Lolz.

There's Gonna Be Some Changes - February 27 2009
For a while now, Dlakii has been administrating this wiki for me. Mostly because I was too lazy to help before. Not anymore. From now on, I will be taking over once more. From now on, I will only be giving the position of Administrator to people I know I can trust. From now on, I will be doing the Featured Articles (That's, if no one wants to help *Hint* *Hint*). From now on, I will actually supervise this wiki. And from now on, we will see improvement. And if not, I blame science. :)
CALLING ALL ADMINS. I have finally found out how to only allow members to edit pages. However, it is time consuming and will require more than one person. In the blue bar near the top of the page, there is a link that says Protect. Under edit, click "Block unregistered users" and click confirm. However, this only works for one article each...So we will need to protect...All...294 articles...Blarg.
Finally, I have time to do an admin duty! I've been planning to change the logo for a while, but Turaga Dlakii has been so kind as to make an awesome one for us. Now as for the Featured Articles...Remember, I'll actually be able to do more once I get a laptop!
Looks like I'm going to be the only one doing. This week I'm going with most visited stuff. And the winning things are...Takuma Nuva, and my very own comics! Woot. (No seriously. The comics part is not rigged.)
Yup. I'm going to be starting this. And this week will be dedicated to me the guy who started this, VakamaTK! But since this week is half way through, I'm going to keep this up until the Monday after next week! Hooray TK! (And don't worry. Next time it probably won't be rigged.)
This is Blade Titan974 once again, and I'd like to say thanks for all your help people! This wiki is rather popular thanks to you! We have almost 40 articles! Yahoo! So since we have so many articles, I guess we should start filling in that Featured Article section soon. Ugh, more work for us admins...
Welcome! - May 24, 2008
We've just started, so hopefully we can bring in many comic makers! Hi, I'm Blade Titan974, VakamaTK's friend, the dude who started all this, and I'll be helping out around here! Enjoy!
