You might have noticed that there seems t be something wrong with the forums for the last few days. Well, I contacted Wikia Staff, and got this reply:

Only 2 more days until Comic Con and a chance to go to the How I Met Your Mother panel! This is the first time EVER that HIMYM will be at SDCC and, luckily, a couple of Wikia staff and community members will be headed to Comic Con this year to attend the panel! If you won't be making it to Comic Con, what kind of questions would you like asked?
Send questions in the comments below and we'll see if we can get answers! For more Comic Con goodies, check out Wikia's Comic-Con Wiki now!Read more >
People keep adding things that happened in new episodes to the continuity section of older episodes. For example, if Natalie beating up Ted was mentioned in an episode, then they add that to the continuity section of that episode (referring to ) and they also add to the continuity of . There is no need for that.
Continuity sections are just to list stuff that happened in previous episode and were mentioned in a later episode, not the other way around. I hope you understand what I am saying, but if you don't, then just leave a comment and I'll explain my point further.Read more >
So, I thought that I'd let you guys know that we have a zero tolerance policy on this Wiki. If you break any rules; spamming, removing content and deliberately changing correct information to incorrect one, etc you will be blocked for a week, maybe more. I've have already blocked dozens of users in the past few weeks, most of them are anons.Read more >
So a few people suggested that we enable the Message Wall feature, so we did. If you have any objection to it, then please speak up.Read more >
Since the creation of the Season 8 News, the page has been generating a lot of views since the readers like to know about spoilers, casting news etc. Although that page is organized with episode and other topics, the problem with it was that whenever something news was added in the correspinding topic, many people didn't even realize that I had added something new.
After enabling the new forums, and I thought they would be for posting news, since people would know that a new "news" is added about the show whenever a new thread is created in the news board.
I was also be maintaining the Season 8 News page, so the people who are not that enthusiastic about the spoilers and other news as soon as they are released can see the news once in a whil…Read more >
So Wikia released the New Forums last week. They are ways better than the old forums, so I have enabled them on the wiki. You can see them here: New Forums. Go check them out.Read more >
So, we did a test chat last week for , and since that went well. I think it would be a nice idea to have a live chat before, during and after each episode. Discuss what you think the episode is about and how is it going to be, talk about what is happening in the episode, and finally what did you think of the episode. The counter on the Main Page, as well as on the page for an upcoming episode will tell you about the time of the airing of the episode, so you can join the chat around that time (episodes air at 8/7c on Mondays).
Also, the chat feature is enabled all the time, so you can chat anytime you like, if you find other people online.

As the site grows, it becomes more helpful to add some policies to help maintain consistency. While I am working on a few more, these can be considered mostly complete. They will not be considered official for a few days at least so feel free to add your own thoughts to the talk pages if you disagree.
- How I Met Your Mother Wiki:Be bold - part of disassembling the "simplified ruleset" into separate policies. This is one of the most general wiki policies
- How I Met Your Mother Wiki:Tone - states that we should use an "in-universe" tone
- How I Met Your Mother Wiki:English - states that we should stick to an American English spelling throughout the wiki
Finally, we need to decide on a shortcut method for policies. These are for quick linking to the …Read more >
