Just make yourself a red link and edit the page directly. ~SnapperTo 21:00, September 12, 2013 (UTC)
ok then, thanks Kunoichi101 (talk) 21:02, September 12, 2013 (UTC)Kunoichi101
You could've just contacted a member directly via a talkpage than making a whole forum for this.... --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 21:10, September 12, 2013 (UTC)
It may have communal significance: was there ever an option to create a blank page, and if so where did it go? ~SnapperTo 21:15, September 12, 2013 (UTC)
Just type the name of the page into the URL and click Create? It really isn't that hard. Or do we need a form to create a non-template page ? :/ --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 21:18, September 12, 2013 (UTC)
Kunoichi's question suggests that there used to be the option. Again, if it existed, where has it gone? ~SnapperTo 21:21, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

Unless I'm mistaken, there has never been such an option. Some of the other regulars here may be able to confirm this though. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 21:22, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

I'm guessing it's Special:CreatePage, which is not as easy to find as it was? ~SnapperTo 21:24, September 12, 2013 (UTC)
well this is a fair enough for creating articles other then add a page. I mean why add a page when there's type of forms. but why do we need the forms link? Kunoichi101 (talk) 21:27, September 12, 2013 (UTC)Kunoichi101
@Snapper2 Fair enough, although I'm pretty sure it's hidden because most people simply create new pages by typing in links to non-existent pages in the search box.
@Kunoichi101 Forms are used to preload many important Narutopedia infobox templates for the creation of 70-80% of our articles (episodes, characters, jutsus etc) --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 21:29, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

I believe Special:Create by default appears in a wiki's main page, something we got rid of long ago to avoid easy creation of pointless articles during darker times. I currently have special create available to me in the edit bar we know have in the bottom of the screen. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:43, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

It's also readily available through the Admin Dashboard, joy of joys. ~SnapperTo 21:48, September 12, 2013 (UTC)
not joy for me, of course special:createpage may be the better idea for creating pages, but add a page will be different, instead of using url and click add, showing forms of any type. Kunoichi101 (talk) 21:50, September 12, 2013 (UTC)Kunoichi101
