    Every day, we see staff members walk through the door of Fandom offices eager to get to their desks. It's not because they want to get the day over with, and it's not because they're here for a paycheck. It's because they know they're here to help grow and support a community of millions of fans around the world. Those of us who are on the Community Team, like I am, get to work directly with the community each day, but not every Fandom Staff member has that opportunity. That's why, for the last several years, we've had an event called Wikia Day about twice a year, where every staff member takes an entire day to work on a wiki of their choosing.

    In recognition of our new name, yesterday marked the first-ever Fandom Day! What's even more exci…

    Last year, we had a big idea: what if we brought a group of nearly 30 administrators to our office in San Francisco? Not only would we be able to speak to admins in-person about the future of Wikia and the products we're working on, but those admins would be able to provide immediate and in-person feedback directly to Wikia staff. That idea became our first-ever Community Connect last September, and it was a great success.

    This year, we wanted to make it an even bigger event. Instead of just having one Community Connect, we had two: one in our office in Poznan, Poland in July, and the other in San Francisco a few weeks ago. With this year's launch of Fandom and the Fan Contributor Program, we were also able to expand the scope of the attend…

    There's something unique about Wikia. Every day when we see staff members come into the office, we only see people who love coming to work in the morning. We love being professional fans, and we love being able to build a platform for you to write about what you love.

    We have a number of different teams in all our offices around the world. They range from Community to Marketing to Product and more. Some edit on communities, like you do, more than others and there are new staff members joining us all the time, all throughout the world. That's why, every few months, we set aside an entire day in every office so all employees can edit on Wikia for the whole day.

    We call this Wikia Day, and we had our most recent one yesterday!

    Every time we have…

    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 about the importance of engaging with an audience on social media. As social media becomes more and more important in the evolving internet landscape, I wanted to share some of what we've learned with you.

    When you have a well-established community, you…
