    How to Write the Perfect Blog

    February 12, 2016 by Sannse

    Blogs are a unique space on a collaborative community. Most pages on a community are edited by many people, building a resource on the community's topic. But blogs are usually an article written by just one person, not collaboratively at all.

    In a way, that's similar to Message Walls and talk pages, but Message Walls are generally a conversation between two or more people. They might be about an issue on the wikia, or figuring out how to best write an article, or just saying hello! Blogs have p…

    Happy Valentine's Month, Wikians!

    It's February, and we're bringing back a fan-favorite event from last year - the cross-community Greatest Love of All Couples Bracket Tournament.

    Last year's bracket was incredible, garnering hundreds of thousands of votes! In case you missed out, last year's Final Four couples were:

    • Naruto & Hinata from Naruto
    • Kurt & Blaine from Glee
    • Korra & Asami from The Legend of Korra
    • Sasuke & Sakura from Naruto

    And after all the dust settled, the final winner - with over 101,000 votes …

    A year ago, Wikia introduced a new user group across our network called “Moderators”. The purpose of this new group was to aid administrators by enabling and designating more trusted users to keep track of the conversations happening across different Wikia features, like Forum and Message Wall.

    Since then, we’ve been monitoring how the group has been used, gathering direct feedback from our users on how the group can be improved and running some ideas by our Community Council.

    Today, we’re announ…

    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…

    Mobile Apps Get a Facelift

    February 12, 2016 by Ducksoup

    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…

    Hello Wikians! This week you’ll start to see something new at the top of article pages — buttons for sharing your community’s work via social media.

    These options will make it easier for both editors and readers to get your wikia’s expertly-crafted content out into the wider fan universe for your topic. Comments, likes, reblogs, and retweets can indicate how useful and relevant a page is for others. Some of those readers might even come visit and make some contributions of their own!

    We’re espec…

    Hey all. This blog is a quick FYI on unofficial Wikia community groups.

    For background, community central is an official wiki, it's ran by Wikia and Admins and Mods are chosen by staff. By contrast, the Wikia community channels I'm listing are unofficial, ran by Wikians according to their rules, but as general purpose hang out areas for the Wikia community. Most of them were made before chat was a feature on Wikia, and so there was a greater need to have a way of communication with Wikians. Some…

    Disruptive Users in Chat

    February 12, 2016 by Nerfmaster8

    So you have unfortunately witnessed how bad chat could get without a chat moderator being present? Probably thinking "oh no, uh how can I deal with it?". Well there are a few things you can try while waiting on a chat moderator to join chat...

    A few things to always keep in mind whether you are in Community Central's chat room, another wiki's chat room on Wikia's network, IRC [internet relay channel] or other chat room:

    1. Ignore the troll, spammer or user flooding chat. Do not engage with them.
    2. Rema…
