This page is a wishlist of things that would be nice to have on this wiki. There are a few things that aren't immediately needed, but it might be nice to have, and others depend on the security of the site. Max has got to do most of this.

Stuff that's struck out has been completed (to the best of our knowledge, MediaWiki is weird like that). Stuff in bold should be done shortly if not sooner.


  • Expand the main namespace to include articles for all the major fads and YTMND sites without forking them from the fads list. YTMND is not Wikipedia after all and "This comes from Wikipedia/Fadwiki" messages look ghey.
  • Try to explain why a fad is funny to newcomers. Some (lots) of people look at these YTMND and either don't get the joke, or don't know why they're funny.
  • Section devoted to Dead Fads, or fads that are dying and on their way out.
  • Create an infobox template for assets (audio and image files).
  • Add a section for moderator favorites. The amount of mod favorite sites are unknown as I see only 5 every few minutes. Would be really helpful if there was a list.


  • Front page layout that resembles the original Wikipedia online format. With front page sections that cycle thru 4 windows covering various content and including imagery, move YTMND into an editable article and replace the Main Page with Main Page or similar. (?)

Technical (requires db access)

Changes to LocalSettings.php

Quick and easy

Personal user styles (I loves me some popups). Set $wgAllowUserJs and $wgAllowUserCss to true.

Get xXWaspXx a Battery Meter.

Slightly longer (instructions on linked page)

Extensions (help)

Possibly added later, if needed


  • Create a section in an admin area where user ips/emails get posted when they are doing extreme amounts of vandalism so I can delete them from the main site/forums as well.
    • That's what checkuser (see above) is all about. Install that and give "checkuser" to all the admins, then for whoever vandalises the wiki, we'll look them up and send their IP to you to do as you please. --LBMixPro<lol, talk page>
  • Enabling inputboxes
  • Changing the image hosting sources to http://content.ytmnd.com/wiki/$1 [1]
