Jorge brought up you were interested in some assistance polishing the main page and navigation part of your site. I'll be poking around for a bit to that end. Don't hesitate to send me a message regarding any changes!
Update: everything should be tweaked now. I added categories to pages so that the navigation menu could be filled out. Please let me know if there's anything that doesn't meet with your satisfaction :)
I love it! Seriously, this is way more than I was expecting and I am very gracious! Thank you so much! I had a question regarding the facebook like button on the main page, there seems to be code to show a like button on the right side but I don't actually see one. I don't know what to do to fix the code (or if this is a client side issue).
My name is Jorge and I manage the Video Games Community Development Team. Tim, aka DaASCAT, let me know you could use some help around the wiki. I'm a fan of the game, so I'd love to put some of our team resources to help you get situated.
Of course we want to improve the mainpage and navigation to make the site quickly accessible and visually appealing. But aside from that, is there anything you want help with in particular? We can happily help out with customization or point you in the right direction to learn some things yourself as well. Just let me know and we can get to it ASAP (or at least once GDC is over) :).

I agree, the main page and navigation are the biggest issues. I don't really know what customization would entail (I also don't know what is possible). I would love to hear any ideas. As you may have noticed from my game, I'm a big fan of using tools in ways that they were not originally designed for so feel free to be creative!
Thanks for offering to help, I really appreciate it!
Hi, I'm Tim and work here at Wikia as Director of Technical Support.
A lot of our engineers at Wikia shared the recent articles about Arena XLSM on GizModo and Boing Boing, but then we were thrilled to realize the official game wiki community was right here on Wikia. So first, congrats on your success in recent weeks. Obviously, becoming a successful game and wiki community is a great thing to accomplish but I know it carries its own challenges. Looking at your QuickStats, the wiki went from having 270 readers to 33,900 in just a couple of days.
If you need any extra assistence - fighting spam, adding features, promoting your wiki - please don't hesitate to let me know right here. I'll be very happy to help you all out any way I can.
I'm fairly new to wikia so a lot of the pages are ugly as sin... If anyone at Wikia is a fan and wants to help make this thing look better / more professional / more accessible then I would appreciate any assistance. I finally figured out how to change infobox templates (yay!) but I know wikia has a lot of other features that can make a wiki look great, I just haven't had much time to become familiar with them yet.
