Wiki Creation Policies

I'm trying to decide between editthis.info and Wikia, and I'm afraid I haven't been able to find many policy pages for editthis. It looks like there are no content restrictions on what kind of wikis you can create, but that sounds a little too good to be true, especially for an ad-supported site. Could I get some official confirmation that there are really no content restrictions at all? In particular, the wiki I'm looking at would be a fanworks index, so although most of the content itself wouldn't be adult, it would link to adult content and some borderline content would probably end up in the wiki itself. Although I personally don't want much adult content on the wiki itself, I recognize that indexing it would be helpful to the users and I want even less to waste time arguing with people about what should and should not count as adult. So I'd really like to host it somewhere that allowed adult material fullstop so we don't have to figure out byzantine ways of indexing an erotica story hosted elsewhere without mentioning anything adult in the index listing itself. Would that be allowed here? Thanks.--Bedawyn 18:34, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Protection Systems

And another question -- I've seen mention here of user rights groups, but it's difficult to determine the flexibility of the system without being able to actually play around with it. Would this system here allow me to set things up so that (1) I could allow some nonadmin users to edit semi-protected pages without allowing all registered users to edit them, and (2) userpages and user subpages could be edited only by their own user and possibly anyone they've chosen to allow?--Bedawyn 18:41, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Editcount

Does the amount of editing see in the Template or in some special pages? Yes, I know how to see the amount of editing, but only myself. How I can see my friend amount of editing? --Papparainen 11:54, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Side bar edit

Image upload

When I try to upload an image to my newly-made wiki, I get a message titled "Error" saying "File uploads are disabled". Can I do anything about this?

My wiki wasn't popular

I made a wiki called "Go To This Site" and it isn't popular so it doesn't show up. I want to see it again. --O24-181-82-171 15:56, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Semantic MediaWiki

How do I get Semantic MediaWiki on Sidebar this?

(And is it possible to interwiki link in this interface? If so, what's the code?)
