General Info

Cross-Wiki Weekend is an annual event hosted by NIWA.

The Cross-Wiki Week is an annual event hosted by NIWA, encouraging our editors to contribute to wikis they have never before, or rarely, edited. The event is intended to encourage people to spread their knowledge to other wikis, and possibly learn more about a series they might not be familiar with and become a more permanent contributor to that series' wiki. At the end of the event, a prize draw will be held, in which two lucky editors will win a $20/€20 Nintendo eShop gift card. So, why not get involved? Just click the "edit" button at the top of an article, and do whatever you can to improve it!

The 2023 Cross-Wiki Week will take place from Saturday, 23 September, to Sunday, 1 October. After the event is over, you must submit your edits in a form on the NIWA website in order to enter the prize draw. For more information on the terms and conditions for entering the prize draw, and links to other NIWA wikis and ways to help them, please see this page.

If you arrived at this page from another site, welcome to Wikibound! This page lists some simple tasks that visiting editors can help with, which will be eligible for entering the prize draw. If you'd prefer to help with larger tasks, please see our To-Do List. You should also review our help pages, in order to familiarize yourself with our policies and editing standards.

You must create an account to edit Wikibound; click here and complete the form to create your account. Unfortunately, as an anti-spam measure, brand-new accounts cannot create new pages or upload new images, until the account has made at least 10 edits, and been active for at least four days. We apologize for any inconvenience.
