Thanks for your interest in helping The Walking Dead Wiki. Below is a list of information to help you in expanding the wiki. Please adhere to the guidelines set forth to the best of your ability.

We are currently looking for good writers to help write up and re-write some of the articles on this wiki as these articles need some attention. At the moment, we have 3,739 articles being worked on.

Uploading Images

Feel free to upload images, but remember that proper licensing and fair use descriptions are needed. As most of these images will come from copyrighted work, you must adhere to fair use policies such as citing sources, having the image at a low resolution so that a high quality reproduction can not be made, and giving proper copyright and trademark information. See "Templates" below for more information on how to easily do this. If you are unsure how to do this, ask an administrator, or have someone else do it properly.

Good sites to find Cover artwork include:
Grand Comics Database
The Comic Book Database (May require registering as The Walking Dead is mature content)
