Ah, Halloween. What other holiday has such a liberating effect on the average Joe? For one day a year, people throw crazy parties (no matter what day of the week it is), give and receive tasty treats, and dress up in outrageous costumes that rightfully can be interpreted as true displays of our individuality.

It’s kinda fun to scare people, too.

Wikia would like to throw a crazy party of its own and we’re inviting the entire community. But be warned: You have to come in costume! Specifically, we’d like you to “dress up” your wiki for Halloween. What exactly do we mean by that? Give your wiki a holiday-themed makeover by adding a custom skin (one that captures not only the spirit of Halloween, but the fun/theme/uniqueness of your particular community), a seasonal Word mark, giving every element on your home page a spooky “feel”… the skies the limit!

And this is more than your average party, mind you. It’s an actual contest! On the afternoon of Oct. 31, Wikia staff will hand-pick one wiki who we’ve deemed to have the best costume. The winning wiki (announced on Nov. 1) will receive cover story promotion (the revolving marquee at the top of the page) on the Entertainment, Video Games and Lifestyle hubs, as well as one month’s worth of promotion in the coveted Wikia Spotlights.

So if you’re interested in participating, let us know by leaving the name and URL of your wiki in the comments below. Remember to discuss this with and get approval from your community before signing up. (Or, if you’re the admin/founder, you can just sign up straight-away.) Wikis are encouraged to put their “costumes” up as soon as possible and leave them up for the entire month of October. But they absolutely MUST be up by 8 a.m. EST on Wednesday, Oct. 31 in order to be considered for the contest.

Good luck… and have a Happy Halloween!
