    Calm Over Conflict

    January 17, 2018 by Sannse

    I've been thinking a lot about conflict on wikis recently. There's a wiki I've been watching (I won't name it) where it seems everyone is fighting with everyone else. There are groups on one side or the other of the argument, and no one is managing to calm things down. Obviously this is affecting the productivity of the community, as well as driving away those who can't stand the bickering. As I tried to think of ways to help them resolve their differences, I found a blog I wrote in 2011 that …

    In 2017 we redesigned the page and article headers at the top of every wiki page as part of a more modern design experience on FANDOM wikis. We couldn't be happier with the way it turned out, but we knew there were a few extra steps we could take to make it even more impactful for logged-in users.

    Today we have introduced new shortcuts to the page header that will appear for all logged-in users. These shortcuts include Add New Image, Add New Video, Recent Changes, and All Shortcuts. The All Shor…

    Where to start as a Newbie

    December 19, 2017 by Mira Laime

    So you've found your way onto FANDOM - congrats! You're in for fun discoveries, achievements you'll be proud of, and perhaps even new friends.

    But where to start? What do you do first to make sure you get the most out of your time here? We've put together some basic tips. 


    Most wikis allow you to edit articles and post comments without logging in, but having a FANDOM account brings you a number of benefits. As a logged-in user, you can receive notifications about article changes, messages and rep…

    Creating Your Wiki’s Design

    December 12, 2017 by JoePlay

    In my previous blog post, I described the process of requesting assistance from FANDOM staff to help with your wiki’s appearance. This time, I want to talk about customizing your wiki’s theme yourself.

    I’ll start with the question: What exactly is the theme, and why would you want to customize it yourself? Simply put, your wiki’s theme is its overall appearance, from the background image and wordmark to smaller things like the color of buttons and text links. One main reason to do it yourself is …

    New on-site notifications

    March 27, 2017 by BertH

    Tomorrow you'll see an addition to the Fandom navigation bar at the top of the site. We are very excited to share that a new area for notifications will be added, anchored to the "bell" icon. These new on-site notifications are the future of notifications on Fandom. They are part of a central notification service which is the foundation for a unified hub giving you access to all of the activity you care the most about. Our vision is to create a simple and easy-to-use notification system that wi…

    For the last several years, we've worked to broaden the ways that fans can participate on Wikia. At the core of that experience is and continues to be wiki editing - creating and expanding deep fan knowledge resources. We also knew that there was more to the fan experience than editing, which meant there was lots of untapped potential on the site. For example, we saw that fans want to share their thoughts about what they love, leading to the launch of our Fandom editorial hub earlier this year. …

    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.…

    Wikians are often at the epicenter of their favorite fandoms. You represent the biggest experts there are, not to mention that you have some of the most intense passions for pop culture in the world. That's why it's not very surprising to know that social media is an important tool for your community. What better way is there to talk to other fans and let them know about your community?

    Every day, we talk to fans on our own brand accounts, @getfandom and @Wikia, and we've learned a great deal ab…

    We’ve given plenty of advice in the past on how to deal with trolls, annoying users, and bad admins. But what if that user who is upsetting the community is a bureaucrat, and can delete anything and block anyone they like?


    As in any dispute, the best option is to talk it out: Stay calm, assume your bureaucrat isn’t evil, but just coming from a different point of view, and see if you can find a way to work together.

    Try these options, if a bureaucrat is causing trouble:

    The Importance of Images

    October 26, 2015 by SEOkitten

    Greetings, Wikians!


    One common SEO question at Wikia is about the impact images have on rankings. Search engine algorithms are not public and most look at hundreds of unique factors, but correlation studies have shown pages that include properly tagged, relevant images often rank higher than pages that do not.

    Google and other search engines are getting better at understanding the relationship between images and other on-page content, but search bots cannot understand the images themselves. Happi…

    Hello, Wikians!

    I introduced some simple keyword research tools in the previous SEO blog post; this time I want to discuss how to include those keywords on the page for maximum impact on search rankings and user experience.

    The internet was less sophisticated in the mid to late ‘90s. During the Geocities era, it became a common practice to “optimize” pages using spammy blocks of unrelated keywords or sentences stuffed with synonyms and close match variations.

    In the attempt to adhere to this outda…
