Hey Fairly Odd people!
Wikia is organizing a competition called Time to Play. It's a way Wikia found to honor and promote the best article of which Wiki. You can learn more about "Time to Play", here.
But, before we join this, WE must decide which is our best article. I made a poll with our Featured articles, and you can help us decide the best one. Note that you must vote based on the article quality, and not on how you like the episode/character the article is about.
Your vote is very important to us.
Thank you :)
The poll is closed
After days of tie, the most voted article was "A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!". Thanks for all who voted.

First, as many of you have learned, The Fairly OddParents is coming back for another season. This includes a live action Christmas movie and an unspecified amount of episodes. I've been absent a lot lately, and I'm not sure how much time I'll even be able to put into this wiki anymore when episodes start rolling out again, so I ask other fans to keep an ear out for FOP related news because for all we know Nickelodeon might start broadcasting new episodes with none of us knowing.
Thanks to those that fought the vandalism during this downtime. I've been cleaning up what I can, but I advise those uploading images to the wiki to please not just randomly add them to episode image galleries, especially if they put them out of chronological order.…

I've made some updates to the era template so it now displays on the left, and with bigger icons.
The icons should be ordered as follows:
- Featured article star (if applicable)
- Article type (Character / Episode / Song / Gallery / Trivia / Quotes) (NOTE: I have not yet added these yet)
- Season number (What season does this article apply to?)
- Character icon (For the character's articles, episodes they appear in)
So it should look like this:
Which would create:
On the left side of the article.
Right now the biggest thing that needs to be done is that on most articles, the season icon is ordered after then character icon when it should be before it. My bot has already begun to correct a lot of these, but it has a tendency to miss pages because this wiki is s…

As some of you have noticed, I've been replacing our image galleries with high quality screenshots from better recordings than what are commonly available on the net. These screenshots have no logos blocking parts of them, and are of a higher resolution (640x480) than the older pics.
The process is a bit time consuming but I've already managed to get quite a few episodes done. However, so that other users don't waste their time uploading galleries for these episodes, here are the ones that I have:
- Episodes I don't have on DVD, temporary galleries that cannot be replaced ATM
- King Chang
- The End of the Universe-ity
- Love Triangle
- Invasion of the Dads
- When Losers Attack
- Uploaded DVD gallery checklist (italics are incomplete)
- Frenemy Mine (DVD) …

I've noticed nobody has really been nominating or voting on featured articles but I'm sure there are plenty of pages that deserve to be recognized.
Leave a comment below recommending a character or episode page to be considered! Remember, a featured article must:
- Be complete. If its an episode, it should have a full summary and pictures/quotes to go with it. If it is a character, all their appearances should be cataloged, all their images in the image gallery, and some quotes and trivia about them in the other pages.
- Few or no red links (links to non-existent articles). Preferably none. An exception is linking to stuff thats hard to find like Fairly OddParents comics/books/video games and such.
- It should look like the other articles of its ki…
I've improved some sections of the site, notable the Community Portal and Featured Article Voting.
Also the policy of the Wiki is now more clear and outlined, and can be found here. Keep in mind that these are mostly guidelines to help improve the Wiki, and users will only be blocked for serious offenses (dangerous uploads, badge cheating, harassment, ect.), more details can be found at the Blocking Policy page.
Also be sure to visit the Forums to help input new ideas!
The new system of featured article voting is that ANY user can add an article they feel deserves it to the voting page.
How to vote:
- Vote by typing either of the following in the relevant sections:
I've created some new templates similar to what the episode pages use:

I've created a whole bunch of new userboxes for your userpage.
--- Here is an example of an easy to use template to add to your user page.
Which will create this result on the right side of your userpage.
There are plenty more userboxes that you can add to your page. You can view them all here!
There are also talkboxes for your usertalk page.
If you know how to create templates, you can make a signature talkbox for yourself, like these ones below:
There are also talkboxes in the works for fan favorite characters:
If you want to try making your own and you know how to use templates than feel free to make your own. The images you upload to use for them work best if around 50-100px in size.
You can view all the talkboxes here!…

Since the achievement system has so far helped our Wiki, I've decided to keep it for now. However, since we are running out of Episodes and Categories to earn badges for, I'm going to create some new badges for the References, Appearances, Image galleries, and Quote pages categories.
I need ideas for names for each badge and the related image that goes with the badge.
Each category has:
- Three bronze badges (10 points each)
- Three silver badges (50 points each)
- Two gold badges (100 points each)
- Fishbowl - Character/Object/Location
- Timmy's Room - Character/Object/Location
- The Turner's House - Character/Object/Location
- Dimmsdale Elementary - Character/Object/Location
- Downtown Dimmsdale - Character/Object/Location
- Dimmsdale City Hall - Character/Object/Location
- Earth - …

Everyone probably noticed we have a new award/point system, courtesy of the Wikia staff. I'll be working on some nice badges for the Wiki in stuff. I'm not 100% sure how this works myself, but in the coming days expect more updates!
Have fun! --Lord Beckett (talk) 02:06, July 13, 2010 (UTC)Read more >
