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 >
The wiki is now present on Facebook with our new Facebook page:
You can "Like" us on Facebook and keep up with wiki news on Facebook.
Ideally, I am trying to set it up so the wiki's twitter feed will also update that page. Facebook/Twitter seems to be bugged so that set up it taking a while (if anyone knows how to set that up properly please let me know). But I'll do my best to keep both updated.
HIMYM Wiki on FacebookRead more >
To help spread the word about the wiki and provide information about the wiki (and the show), I've created a HIMYM Wiki Twitter: @HIMYM_wiki.
I'll be tweeting links to popular articles, announcements of new features and content on the wiki as well as retweeting juicy posts from other HIMYM twitter feeds and occasionally Wikia.
The account is also following show-related feeds and relative twitter accounts if you are looking for more info on the show.
For new info I miss, just send me an @ or direct message on that account and preferably my normal feed to make sure I get it (@heatherarbiter).Read more >
I wanted to make a new logo for a little while, especially to go with the new wikia skin. This logo was a drawing of a yellow umbrella since its kind of the "icon" for HIMYM. It also features the name of the show written in the style of the title card. The new color scheme on the site is meant go with the logo.
If anyone wants to take the logo and make a vector graphic to get a better quality image or just sharpen it, let me know and I'll pass on the .psd file.Read more >
