Fansite Appreciation Day
24 March 2021

On March 24, 2005 we can find the first public traces of the Tibian Fansite Programme. In a very short news back then it was mentioned that a fansite section was added to the website, listing supported fansites.

Fansites, however, have always accompanied Tibia. The first permanent public Tibia server was set up in January 1997. Just shortly after that, we can find traces in our archives of a fansite called Yorin's Tibia Homepage. So Tibia and fansites go hand in hand and have always done so. Fansites offer lots of information and entertainment for players. You can find dozens of quest guides in multiple languages, info on items, statistics, articles, streams, videos, pictures, screenshots, stories, discussions, questions, answers - and even apps for smartphones or a bot for discord. The list does not end.
We greatly appreciate what our supported and promoted fansites accomplish, however, what seems to come up short, sometimes, is an appreciation of the entire fansite teams. We have one contact person for each fansite, only. That contact person is listed in the fansite section on the official Tibia website. A fansite is most often handled by a couple of more people, however. So the admins have come up with an idea. They wanted to show appreciation to their staff members, too. That was the birth of the Fansite Appreciation Day. The date for it is the date that we can find in our news archive, the first time that the fansite programme was publicly mentioned.
Without their teams, there would be way less action on fansites or their social media. So, we would like to say thank you to everybody who is part of a fansite team, who supports fansites, posts, translates, answers, draws, paints, films, helps in events and contests, provides screenshots, programmes, writes guides or articles, collects and shares information, streams or produces videos, etc. Thank you very much! You are not only appreciated by us here at CipSoft, but by the community, too. As a very recent poll shows, for example, many people head over to fansites for help when they want to solve quests.

With that said, we want to hand over the microphone to the fansite admins themselves. Several of them wanted to use this opportunity to introduce their fansites a bit, and they want to invite you to participate in a combined contest that is all about fansites, too. Maybe one day you would like to join a fansite team as well...

+++Fansite Introductions+++

As mentioned, a couple of fansite admins would like to use this opportunity to tell you a bit about their fansites and their fansite team. Maybe one day you would like to join a fansite team, too.

TibiaQA.comTibiaQA.com focuses on building a knowledge base. It contains a board for players to ask and answer Tibia-related questions. By voting on the content, the community indicates which posts are interesting and useful.

The community plays a vital role on TibiaQA. They provide most of the content available on the site and even help to moderate it. Users who constantly provide high-quality content earn reputation points, which unlock more moderation privileges on the site. In order to keep everything running smoothly Ellotris Guardian and two wonderful community moderators Camarluk and Violetissime frequently assist the community with those tasks. They review and improve the clarity of posted questions and answers, remove inappropriate content, react on posts flagged by other members of the community, and much more! Together with other members of the TibiaQA community, they are making it a great place!

TibiaQA is often looking for new team members. You can check the details concerning the search for a community manager there.
TibiaGoals.comTibiaGoals.com focuses on player's motivation. Players contribute to the page by writing their Tibian stories on achieving their goals. The page posts monthly interviews with the community. TibiaGoals.com also offers a section dedicated especially to women, as well as a section dedicated to each aspect of the game.

In TibiaGoals, each of the main sections has a person that is in charge of it. Lady Mass focuses on the interviews and creating the riddles and the other admin, Divine'Angel is in charge of the the page's design and the house decoration section. There are also two dedicated content creators. An achievement huntress Bijou Kidi does not only write articles about achievements but also evaluates the players’ answers to the riddles. Michi the Queen on the other hand is responsible for the section devoted to PvP. There is also a lot of teamwork concerning the remaining sections! The page also offers translations to Spanish and Portuguese thanks to the two committed translators, Mayra and Gidarette.
Tibiopedia.plTibiopedia.pl's main goal is to be the encyclopedia of Tibia. We offer a lot of information about quests, monsters, items and other various aspects of Tibia. Besides that you can get the latest news what is going on in Tibia, as well as in our community. Our forum is a place to exchange opinions, ask for a help or show off your newly decorated house and any skill advance. The site contains a lot of useful tools that help in your daily hunting activities. We are also offering contests and forum games while your stamina is regenerating. Tibiopedia.pl is targeting the Polish community but English speaking players will also find something for themselves!

From this place we would like to thank all the present and past editors, moderators and redactors that built and are still working hard on the high quality of Tibiopedia.pl!

Users are able to comment on everything that is published. Moreover, an active forum for both English and Polish players welcomes everyone who wants to share discoveries, contribute to the research or just discuss things with other mystery-enthusiasts. The team consists of 3 people. Bosst and Mogh are the co-founders and admins of the site, while Haishen is the research specialist and forum moderator. All team members treat each other equally, as they have been friends for years. They share similar responsibilities, though Bosst specializes in writing and translating, Mogh in all tech-related duties and programming and Haishen focuses on in-depth research.

All of them feel very honoured and happy to serve the Tibian community as good as possible.

Our goal is to constantly increase our compendium of information with correct and verifiable information about Tibia, which is why everyone is always welcome to create an account and start editing. From typo corrections to quest spoilers, every help is appreciated!

NabBotNabBot started in March 2016, as a Discord bot for our guild's server Redd Alliance. It was developed by Galarzaa Fidera and Nezune. It started as a simple way for us to look up characters and guilds right from Discord. Nezune developed the first version of level up and deaths announcements, with NabBot's well known random, often sarcastic messages. We kept adding all the features that our guild members needed. NabBot became an important part of our guild management and since at the time it was open source, more people started running their own versions of NabBot.

In July 2018, NabBot was opened to the public, meaning you could just add the original NabBot without needing to run it in your computer. In less than 10 days it reached 100 Discord servers. Today, we are close to reaching 10,000 servers, and every month it has over 10,000 users calling 100,000 commands.

Tschas has been assisting with development and testing since 2017. Unfortunately Nezune was forcefully retired from the game in 2019. Callie Aena joined the team to help with graphic design and Sayuri Nowan has been there to assist and advice in anything related to the game.

The Tibian community has been what drives NabBot's development, as we try to build the tools that people need in order to complement their game experience. Join our Discord server to let us know what you would like NabBot to have. Special thanks go to the members of the former guild Redd Alliance, who were the early inspiration and motivation (not to mention test subjects) for NabBot.
TibiaHome.comTibiaHome started as an Instagram project created by the player and decorator Suzy Kill, who has loved decorating houses in Tibia since 2005. Finally, in 2019, TibiaHome was launched after a lot of planning and with the help of Aline and Pacssivia, who are responsible for managing it.
TibiaHome is focused on decoration, and thanks to our group of dedicated and creative content creators, the players can find articles about tricks, advice and tips related to the topic. Thanks to our amazing translators, our content is available in Portuguese, English, Polish and Spanish!
Besides the website, we also keep reposting people's screenshots on Instagram as inspiration for other players. Our admin Paollah manages this.
It is the goal of TibiaHome to connect all decorators and to help everyone to be able to decorate their houses in style. We are so glad that the Tibia community has been collaborating with us on content, such as sending photos and giving ideas for articles.
TibiaLife.com.brTibiaLife was originally created by Lizy and Carol Witt with the intent of being kind of like a blog of what they did in game. It has since evolved into one of the best fansites for update quest spoilers, thanks to all of our team, and news in Portuguese, thanks to our translators. Our content creators also regularly publish original content related to the game. And we have a big presence on social media too, on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, managed by our social media team.

TibiaLife's goal is to help the community in any way we can. One of our best content is called Descomplica, which usually explains how to do bestiaries, achievements, imbuements, etc.

We believe we've built a good reputation within the community and none of it would have been possible without our extensive team of helpers who have been with us for a long time and even those who only stayed for a while.
