    Wikia is always evolving. Whenever a new product is introduced, it's our goal to give you all of the information you need about it for your community. That information is then taken by other community members, who in turn work with their communities in embracing these products and making them a success.


    Those community members are an important but often-overlooked part of any product release process, because their contribution happens on the grassroots level. So in April, we had an idea: what if…

    For almost two years now, Wikia has been designing and publishing apps to the Android’s Google Play store and Apple’s App Store. Thus far, we’ve published over 100 apps, which works out to about one new release per week. Not too shabby!

    I probably don’t need to tell you that these apps have been a smashing success. In July alone, we had four million active users across all apps and 380,000 new users register with Wikia. And since we started creating apps in November of 2014, they’ve been downloa…

    Wikia is global. Anyone from around the world can use it, and we support as many languages as we can so people can use the site in their native language whenever possible. Right now, between Wikia Staff and the International Volunteer Team, we support eleven different languages. One of the key responsibilities of these staff members and volunteers is to translate the features and functions that people use every day into these supported languages.

    How exactly does that translation process work, t…

    Blocking is the right and duty of all admins. It's a way to stop damage to a community, such as the damage of vandalism or the more subtle reasons such as social disruption.

    Blocking itself is not hard to do. You can find a link to the block page on contribution pages, or go to Special:Block on your wiki and add the name of the person you are blocking, make some selections, and click "block this user".

    What's harder to do is to block well.


    The first things to consider are the options given on the b…

    Hello Wikia!

    We have an exciting new feature to introduce today: the Community Page, which can be found at Special:Community across the top 5000 communities on Wikia!


    ]] It's just what it sounds like - a place where any readers and editors can find out more information about your community! This feature is accessible and open to anyone on your community (logged-in or logged-out).

    As a new visitor to a community, you might wonder:

    • who are the people in this community?
    • who is creating the pages?
    • who mana…

    Greetings Wikians! I’m very excited to announce a new feature today - Curated Main Pages on mobile devices.

    For most communities the main page is its single most viewed page. Four out of the top five pages on Wikia are main pages, in fact, and that makes sense — a search for “Star Wars wiki” is very likely to return the main page as the first result.

    Main pages on desktop are typically a large collection of content, galleries, templates, and design elements, representing each community very well.…

    The logged-in user experience offers a number of benefits on Wikia. Registered accounts have features like Notifications, Chat, and the ability to follow articles and discussions, just to name a few. In the coming months we’ll be working to highlight these benefits more and see what we can do to drive more readers and anonymous editors to create accounts. With more motivations and prompts to return to a community, a user with an account is much more likely to become an active contributor and d…

    Howdy howdy howdy, Wikians!

    Today we’re (choo-choo!) hopping on the mobile train. We have mobile app news and features to share. And oh my goodness these apps are incredibly popular.

    Wikia released the first five Community Apps in November of 2013. Simple premise: Wikians produce high-quality, engaging content, and apps are a good way collect and organize content for viewers. Since then, we’ve released over 100 iOS apps and more than 80 Android apps, with no end in sight. Combined, these apps surp…

    Tenretni

    August 26, 2016 by AngrydroidForce99

    Hello, Wikians and... Tenretnians. Yes. I said that. What is a Tenretnian? It's an inhabitant of Tenretni. What is Tenretni, well, there are two, that's right, two definitions:

    1.Astronomy A large KBO that somehow has light, it is definitely an anomaly. It is speculated that the light is provided by a group of people in the planet's core, but it is mostly denied.
    2.A series created by AngrydroidForce99 that details the adventures of a group of people who live on Tenretni

    "Bless me bagpipes! You, Wiki whippersnapper! I need your help. I made a bet with me rival Glomgold that I could get the DuckTales Wiki in good shape before the reboot in 2017. The Wiki had been abandoned and so I put this lad, RadSpyro in charge, and he's takin' his sweet, sweet time getting everything back up and running. Can ya help him out? ...What? No, of course I'm not paying you money for this. Kids these days!"

    It's Acepedia's 10th anniversary today!! Ten years ago, our founder made the first edit on the wiki, and since then we've grown to become the best and largest Ace Combat encyclopedia on the internet!

    I thought today, of all days, would be perfect to make a blog post on Community Central to promote the wiki and introduce you guys to it :D


    Ace Combat is a arcade flight action series. In most cases, the games see you taking control of a varied selection of aircraft as you try to turn the tide of a w…

    Fiction Foundry

    August 18, 2016 by Kayem-san

    Hey everyone, I'm Kayem. I'm an admin at Fiction Foundry and I'm just here to promote it. We've been around since 2009 but we've really never had a steady user base. Fiction Foundry is a wiki for your own stories, characters, shows, TV channels, video games and whatnot, the only thing is that whatever you create can't be related or based on any real life media. In other words, we don't allow fan-fiction.

    Our history's a bit silly and some content is a bit cringy but if you can get past that then p…
