    Hello all!

    It's about time for a new poll on the Main Page - don't you think? We've had so many responses for our current poll, and it's clear that everyone's favourite character is Marvin!

    Comment below with your suggestions for new poll topics, any we don't do next will be added to a list for future polls!

    I think it could be interesting to find out who everyone's favourite villain or antagonist is from the Hitchhiker's series... or maybe to find out which adaption is everyone's favourite... let me know what you think our next poll could be about!

    Keep ahold of your towels, folks!



    Here is our list of upcoming polls, feel free to add your suggestions in the comments below and you might see them on the main page in future!

    Hi all, just wanted to make you aware that the Main Page has been put under Protection due to recent graffiti. 

    Thankyou to CarterMahoney for the warning about this particular user, and to Sir Maximillian for reverting said graffiti! Very glad to see community spirit in action despite such disappointing behaviour from that user.

    Due to the high volume amounts of graffiti this user has been undertaking, and the fact that they seem keen to continue this behaviour, I have decided to put the Main Page under Protection for an unspecified amount of time in order to save us from having to keep reverting any more graffiti. We have been warned that our Wiki is a target for them, so I think it a good idea to put up some extra precautions for the time …

    Hello all!

    I always see a lot of Hitchhiker's merch made by fans that's for the books and especially for the film, but never much love for the TV series. Well, I just found some really cool patches and towels (of course) embroidered with designs from the TV show so I thought I'd share it with you all because I know you'll appreciate how cool these are!

    They're from an Etsy shop in the UK, here's the link for anyone interested in seeing the rest of their Hitchhiker's stuff:

    I think I'm going to be buying something for sure!

    Hope you're all having a good week!

    Hello all! I hope February is treating you well.

    I've been wanting to update our logo (or wordmark, if you want to be fancy) for quite a while. In the past we've had issues with people thinking this Wiki is about Hitchhiking in general... and the logo just saying 'Hitchhiker Wiki' didn't make it much clearer! (Though it was a cool sci-fi font.)

    I've changed the logo to say 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Wiki' with an image of the thumb-in-planet logo next to it, just to make sure it's very clear what we are about. As the Wiki is now pretty active and, thanks to the hard work of our community, has a lot of updated and informational articles, I thought it was a good time to update our brand, so to speak.

    I hope the logo is clear and acce…

    Infoboxes are changing

    January 29, 2019 by Spacepigeon

    Hi all!

    Just wanted to let you know that I am planning to finally update the infoboxes to the new system. 

    In short, this will mean:

    • Infoboxes will be more compatible with source code
    • Infoboxes will be much easier to edit
    • There will be more fields available to add
    • It will be easier to use the infobox code and make changes
    • Sections will be able to be added in the infoboxes
    • The layout will be a lot neater and more modern

    This will be a really positive change to our Wiki, the information will be staying the same, but the layout will be much improved and the new code is a lot shorter and easier to work with. We'll be able to just upload images into infoboxes instead of having to use the code for linking an image, and a lot of values will be pre-set ins…
