Game Footers

The new game footers are brought to you by Encyclopedia Gamia and our very own Fandom. The basic goal is simple: draw together Wikia communities in one location that enjoy the same genres and hopefully expose them to some new games and communities they might be interested in. Our secondary goal is to try and connect editors looking for help with members and administrators from other wikias who are interested in helping them out, whether it be with content, technical knowledge, or insight gleaned from running a community.

How do I get my site included in the Wikia games footer?


If you haven't already been approached, feel free to include your site in the submission section below in the genre you feel is most appropriate for the game you cover. Note that, with rare exception, a game should only be placed in one footer.

Here are some other things to consider:

  • A member or members of the site should be willing to help those that might ask for assistance in creating their own wikia. Obviously this is at member discretion; members aren't absolutely required to answer every request for help, nor should they if the query is unrealistic and/or no one has the know-how.
  • Sites should have:
    • A well-organized main page at the very least; this includes the navigation bar at the top
    • Wordmark and site background
    • About 100 pages of content. We realize the page count is unrealistic in some instances, so that will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Note: recently released or upcoming games are excluded from this requirement.
    • Be active; this means about an edit a day plus about 7000 page views for the current week. Note that this is approximate - the two are weighed together, so just because a site is lacking in one area does not mean they are automatically excluded. Note: recently released or upcoming games are excluded from this requirement.

Any site participating in the footer will have a page created on the Encyclopedia Gamia for their franchise and each individual game in their franchise for more exposure. Members are encouraged to double-check these entries once they are live and may take ownership of the page.

  • Notes about the footers:
    • Backgrounds are transparent and links/text are set to match the site's settings.
    • The new footers are mobile-friendly.
    • Though intended to stretch the entire width of a main page, the footer can also fit into the left rail, if so desired.
    • When a footer reaches 50 communities, an assessment will be made about splitting the footer into one or more new footers to cut down on size.
My game's genre isn't included.


In most cases a game can fit into multiple categories, so the best should be chosen when possible that most closely matches the genre. Rogue-like games, for instance, aren't included because many games feature stealth elements. Instead, they can be found within the Action-Adventure footer.

Should the situation arise where another footer is potentially needed, one may be created, but only if 1) the genre can't be included in any other category and 2) there are enough games for the footer.

I had a footer, but it was retired. Why?

Footers that were created and maintained by Wikia staff were removed at the end of September 2015. If a site was approved for the new footers, it will be added in place of the old footer.

Footers created by users will not be touched at this time.

Please note: any footers having the Wikia logo, the original logo from the old gaming footers, or adapted from the old footer will be counted among footers that are removed.

If you'd still like to keep the old footer, not maintained by Wikia staff, keep the following in mind:

  • The lists are very dated. Many of the wikias are small and abandoned since they were listed, and some are even abandoned without having been fully built.
  • If you want to keep the list, please remove any Wikia-based logos and links to the Hub. We're attempting to officially sponsor the new footers, so we want to limit any confusion over who is responsible for upkeep ;)
  • It is entirely possible to have multiple footers if you still want both the old list and a new footer. Your community will not be excluded.
What do the notes below mean? Is my site forever rejected?

By and large, the most repeated tags below include the following:

  • Awaiting admin approval - The admin has been approached about inclusion
  • Declined - The site's admin has declined inclusion; the site will not be approached again
  • Inactive community - Meaning there have been no or only a tiny amount of edits in the current week.
  • Low page count - The site has not met the 100-page requirement
  • Overhaul - This can pertain to numerous things, and is usually delineated as such:
    • Main page revamp - The main page of the site needs work, such as better organization
    • Theme revamp - Refers to the background and colors used in the site usually; can also include main page and/or wordmark
    • Wordmark needed - The wordmark is the site picture located in the top left of each page.

Aside from sites that have declined and/or are not gaming-focused, sites can always address any issues tagged and ask for reconsideration. Help is also available for any admins needing it.

Are sites permanently in the footer once added?

In short, no. Roughly every six months all sites submitted to the footer program are re-evaluated (December/June). This includes sites:

  • That have been approved before
  • That have not been approved due to any tagged issues

This does not include sites that have declined and/or are struck through.

The reasoning is to keep sites in the footer that are only the most active. Sites that do not meet the evaluation criteria will only be removed from the footer, but the footer will not be removed from their community - the reason will be noted in the submissions list below.

  • Sites can ask for a re-evaluation if tagged issues are met
  • Sites can also wait another six months for evaluation (such as if it's simply an inactive community issue)
