    The Munkapedia Statistical Report is an annual report, released by Munkapedia's administration, documenting stats about the activity of the wiki for community discussion in hopes of establishing long-term trends to better show where there is strength and where there is need for improvement. Our first report was released two years ago containing a few areas of interest. In our second report, these areas were expanded to include five new charts, one of which utilizes some of the 2014-2015 year's data. Over the last year, one additional chart was added comparing this year to the original report.

    This report will be the final annual release of statistical data.

    Multiple times in the past I've considered creating this blog for all the former users who wished to help with song pages but were unsure about how to construct them. Today I'm going to finally go over the important aspects of song pages for everyone so any confusion can be cleared and obstacles blocking editing of these pages can be lifted. The basic structure of these pages will be first outlined before editing technicalities and singer attribution are discussed.


    Nearly every song page is constructed the same (with few clear exceptions such as "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)"). Each song page is expected to have four primary parts: the intro paragraph, a video, the lyrics, and relevant categories.


    This paragraph seeks to infor…

    Deciding to edit on Fandom for the first time can be daunting. Questions such as "how do I edit?," "what can I edit?," or "will I get in trouble for editing?" are a few that might roll through the mind of a potential editor. This blog hopes to address some of these questions as well as give tips (most of which are specific to Munkapedia) that might just help make one's initial edits smooth sailing.


    There are a few important facts you should know about Fandom wikis before editing. Wikis are created and maintained by a community of fans, like yourself, who continuous build pages through editing. Everyone's edits are edited by someone else at some point with the goal of creating the best pages possible for the fandom. Given the diversity of wi…

    In January I posted a blog outlining two new moderator positions Wikia created and some concerns with implementing such positions on the wiki. With some feedback from the community, interest clearly exists and a general road map for policy changes for the Council and the wiki in general was created. The following is a draft of more specific proposed updates to Site Policy with the goal of regulating the promotion of the Discussion and Content Moderator positions to users with Admin potential.

    Additions are made in red, removals are crossed out, and comments are made in green.


    New users of Munkapedia will be welcomed immediately and accepted warmly.


    Rollback is an extra tool that allows one to quickly revert bad edits or vandalism by having a "rollb…

    Welcome to 2016! As with all New Years, change is always inevitably around the corner. On the dawn of this year, Wikia plans to launch two NEW moderator groups tomorrow. These two groups have the potential to change how our site policy is written and how the Council of Chipmunks might function.


    These groups, seen as "junior admin" positions, seek to lessen the burden of Admins and open up interest, training, and trust to users with a desire to one day take on the role of a full Admin. A similar position, entitled "Moderator", was created Wikia-wide about a year ago and these new positions are build off that original idea by encompassing a broader scope. These positions are as follows:


    Discussions Moderators

    This position seeks to maintain all areas i…

    This blog has been long in the making considering the number of problems that are constantly in need of fixing in the "Relationships" section of the chipmunks' article pages. Despite this section considered undesirable in the past in favor of strictly using the shipping pages, this isn't possible for all relationships. This section can offer benefit to the article, in terms of the main chipmunk relationships, and the reader, if constructed properly.


    As stated many times in edit summaries of the past, the focus of each subsection must be directed in a specific way. Why? Because every main character has identical, but variable, relationships (ie. Brittany and Simon and Simon and Brittany). If written generically (ie. in terms of both characte…

    The Importance of Images

    November 13, 2015 by DEmersonJMFM

    Hey guys! I wanted to go into detail about the importance of images, mostly the importance of naming and licensing images as stated within the wiki's image policy. I know most people's first reaction would be "Ugh, more pointless work." or "Why does it matter? Most people won't see it anyway." but I hope by the end of this blog the reasoning will help you understand just how important these practices are for the reader and the wiki.


    Studies have show that articles with properly tagged images with descriptive naming tend to rank higher in search engines than pages without, leading to more readers viewing content. Images also add to the readability of an article as many individuals find reading a wall of continuous text either boring or intim…

    All editors and readers: please give this blog a few moments of your time for input.

    This discussion is in response to Layout Changes: Breakpoints and Typography. As a quick overview, this Wikia-wide update seeks to transition away from many different layouts of articles that changed based on the screen size you use (the previous fluid page design) to a few more similiar layouts that change based on breakpoints of screen sizes (or, simply size classes). The typography change included primarily an increase in font size given a larger screen size.

    The purpose of this update is reduce content area for the largest screen sizes in order to reinforce the construction of articles that are appealing to smaller screen sizes by using more consistent la…

    Hey Munk family and friends! Over the last year I have been compiling stats to help chart the activity of the wiki in hopes of establishing long-term trends to help show where there is strength and where there is need for improvement. This data isn't currently available to the non-Admin community or in excess of a week at any given time. With the release of this statistical report, this trend will change with the planned release of annual reports compiled by Munkapedia's administration for community discussion.


    The first graph shows Daily Total Wiki Views & Edits from April 7th, 2014 to March 31st, 2015. Views are graphed as the top line while edits are the bottom line. The gradient from red-yellow-green indicates what might be considered p…
