The Cross-Wiki Week (formerly Cross-Wiki Weekend) is an annual event celebrating the anniversary of Nintendo's founding, hosted by the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance (NIWA). The purpose of the event is to encourage users to edit other wikis they rarely or never edit. Users who participate are encouraged to enter into a drawing where two lucky winners will receive a $20 Nintendo eShop gift card! The 2023 Cross-Wiki Week is taking place from September 23rd through October 1st (UTC). You can find more information on the NIWA website.
How to participate
Sign up for the event here and provide your wiki username and contact info. To submit edits for the event, simply add the hashtag
#cww to the edit summaries of edits you make during the Cross-Wiki Week. NIWA will gather all #cww edits and score them for the drawing.
Want to help the MarioWiki?
If you are visiting from another wiki and are looking for ways to help the Super Mario Wiki, we suggest you to take a look at our maintenance page, which lists a variety of tasks that users can help with. Some maintenance requires more knowledge of the Super Mario franchise, like wanted pages or stubs, but there are many other areas that anyone can help with! Our monthly newsletter, The 'Shroom, has a project called Spotlight which features items from several categories that need to be worked on; if you can't decide where to start, this could be a great resource. If you need help, feel free to read our Manual of Style or to contact an administrator.
Want to help other wikis?
If you are a regular user of the Super Mario Wiki and want to help other NIWA wikis, check out the editing guide, which has links to the relevant maintenance pages of all eligible wikis.
We hope you enjoy the event, and happy editing!
