    FANDOM is all about empowering users to have the best possible experience on their Fan Journey. Our most recent Town Hall put the spotlight on building strong communities, a major part of making sure that readers and contributors alike have a great experience on the site.

    As with all of our Town Hall sessions, we answered participant questions and shared tips and insights from FANDOM staff members. Here’s a recap of what was discussed!

    This blog is Part 2 of 2. Part 1 was released Tuesday and can be read here.

    Earlier this week we introduced you to the Fan Journey. It’s an idea that’s at the heart of making FANDOM a complete and inclusive destination for all fans. There’s a lot more product development work left to be done in order to realize that vision — and 2018 will be a big year for figuring out just how to best do it.

    Over the years we’ve released a lot of features designed to reach a wider audience. We’ve had different a…

    This blog is Part 1 of a two part series. Part 2 will be released on Thursday.

    FANDOM has evolved pretty significantly over the last few years. We’ve talked a lot about being a complete destination for fans, an idea that continues to inform the way we build our products. Modernization work in 2017 was a big part of reaching a wider audience, and that work is continuing throughout 2018. But what exactly does it mean to be a complete fan destination?


    That question is at the core of what we’re talki…

    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.…

    You're editing a wiki that you've edited every day for many months, and you love the progress and the accomplishments you have done for your wiki. It always feels like a job well done when you fill out a section that's been empty for three weeks, or when you've finally gotten through all of your Discussions reports. 

    However, sometimes the pressure of working on your wiki starts to build, or you lose patience with your readers and editors. You feel like the task of categorising 10,000 items for …

    So, you have your newly created wiki, and you have no idea what to do. Well, customizing and designing the wiki may be a good place to start! A wiki that has a "cool" design will attract more visitors and editors than a wiki that hasn't been customized.
