This article covers how to report bugs you find on FANDOM.

We want your experience of FANDOM to be as bug free as possible, and we welcome anyone who spots a bug to report it to us. However, in order to aid us in solving those bugs, we have a few tips about how to report them.

Where should it be reported to?Edit

All bugs need to be reported through Special:Contact/bug. If you prefer your regular email interface, then you can email the message through to instead.

What should a problem report contain?Edit

  • Try and make it as clear as possible, including specific details and steps on how to reproduce the bug.
  • A screenshot of how the bug is manifesting, when applicable. See for details on how to take a screenshot on your computer/device. There are also some browser plug-ins that can make taking screenshots easier, such as Awesome Screenshot.
    • Click the "Browse..." button (if using Special:Contact/bug) and upload the screenshot file.
  • Browser, including version number - for example Firefox 45, IE 11, etc.
  • Operating System (OS) - for example Windows 10, OS X 10.7, etc.
  • What community and what exact page you were on when you saw the problem.
  • The full text of any error messages.
  • Whether you were logged in at the time, and with what username.
  • Skin preference if it's not the default FANDOM skin.

Thank you in advance from the entire FANDOM team!
