    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…

    Why Wikia Evolves

    June 18, 2015 by Ducksoup

    Wikia’s a big place with a big platform underpinning it. Have you ever seen a list of all the extensions that exist on Wikia? It is impressively long, and I’ll admit, somewhat confusing. I remember seeing it on my first day working here - I tried to parse it, but instead made a face and pouted.

    An easy explanation for this is that we want the community to have access to as many curation and development tools as reasonably possible, but there’s another reason, too: Wikia has been around for quite…

    Hi Wikians!

    Many of you have created Facebook pages for your communities to help get news and updates to your readers and editors. Some of you also use your main page to promote the Facebook page of your community's topic. If you use the Like Box plugin/widget to show Facebook content on your wikia, you'll need to update to a newer plugin from Facebook.

    Next week (on June 23), Facebook will drop support for the Like Box, which used the tags |}

    Hey Wikians,

    I recently joined the Community Support Team at Wikia, and I’ll be helping you with your problems and answer any questions you might have.

    Just like Andrea, who takes care of the German Wikia community, I grew up in Germany and live in the US now. I'm here to help out all English-speaking users. Before joining Wikia, I worked for a career network called e-fellows.net in Munich. There, it was my job to take care of the online forum and community, a group of about 50,000 students and g…

    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…

    Some contents of this blog have been edited. Please read through to see what has changed!


    Hey everybody, in last year’s article layout prototype, we tested out a number of different things and we got a lot of feedback that has been instrumental in how we’re going to try and move forward. The prototype helped us learn some important things about what works and what doesn’t (for example, removing the right rail was fairly disruptive). We are still going to move forward with gradual enhancements t…

    Greetings Wikians! Rupert Giles here again to talk about global navigation. As many of you know, Wikia rolled out a new global nav back in December with the intention of gathering qualitative user feedback and quantitative engagement data. We mentioned in this post that we would be back in January to talk about next steps. Well, January is almost over and I wanted to bring everyone up to speed on our plans in the coming weeks.

    You provided us with a lot of pointed feedback on the nav experience …

    Since the Forum feature was introduced, many communities have found that it's a great way to help fans connect with one another, make plans around editing projects or community events, and get questions answered. A common feature request, especially from very active communities, has been for a better way to moderate forum activity.

    We're pleased to announce that, with tomorrow's release, a new "moderator" user group will be available to all wikias. Along with this come some updates to what regula…

    Hi there! My name is Charlie Boatwright and I'm an analyst in the Analytics Team here at Wikia. Part of my role involves investigating research questions pertinent to Wikia using the data we have available to us. One of the first topics I was assigned to look at is the attributes of Wikia article pages that drive pageviews.

    One of the biggest drivers is what's known as SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, which is the process used to make it easier for wikias to be discovered and indexed by searc…

    Confession time: I am a huge map nerd. Always have been! When I was a little kid, some of my favorite books were actually atlases. And even today, I still adore looking at maps.

    So naturally, I was so excited when we launched our new maps feature here at Wikia. There is so much you can do with maps, especially in our world of fandom. Of course, you can use the maps tool to create and annotate traditional, geographical maps, but you can *also* use the maps tool to annotate images and provide deep…

    The Zen Admin

    September 29, 2014 by Sannse

    Today's topic was suggested by 452, and it's a good one. We've talked about the attributes of the ideal admin, and about the best ways to react to trolling. But between that is the best way to react to users you dislike or are causing problems on the wikia in ways other than simple trolling.

    This is related to "Don't Feed the Trolls," but there are some differences. Not feeding trolls is generally about not giving feedback to those that are editing specifically to get a reaction to their disrupt…
