Wikia has grown a lot over the years. The site began as a simple wiki hosting service, but since then it has evolved into the web's best entertainment knowledge-sharing platform. Wikis are the core of that, and we've been working hard to attract even more fans to your communities while also building new ways to contribute to the site. That began earlier this year with the debut of Fandom news and stories in our first market, the United States, and continued with the global launch of Discussions to better facilitate passionate conversations.
Today, we're excited to announce the next big step in our evolution. On October 4th, Wikia.com will officially become known as Fandom powered by Wikia. Wikia, Inc will continue to be our parent company, b…Read more >
At Wikia, being professional fans is something we take pretty seriously. Every day we get to provide a home for incredibly knowledgeable and useful content written by the biggest superfans in the world. Our passion is to serve your passions, and it's what motivates us to offer the very best fan experiences.

On September 25th, 193 world leaders will commit to 17 Global Goals aimed at achieving three extraordinary things in the next 15 years: end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and fix climate change.
In order for these Global Goals for sustainable development to work, everyone needs to know about them. You can't fight for your rights if you don't know what they are, and you can't convince world leaders to do what needs to be done if you don't know what you're convincing them to do. Bottom line: If the goals are famous, they won't be forgotten.
Wikia is joining businesses, celebrities, athletes, musicians, and citizens across the world in telling everyone about these 17 Global Goals. You can see all of them represented on our hom…Read more >
I'm sure all of you have been reading about SOPA and PIPA in the news. While SOPA -- the bill in the US House of Representatives -- has gotten most of the attention, it's sister legislation, PIPA -- the bill in the US Senate -- represents a similar approach. These bills are driven by the content industry and are aimed at combating online piracy, protecting intellectual property rights of copyright holders and protecting jobs that are claimed to be affected. The content industry's key objective with this proposed legislation is to stop foreign companies who make millions of dollars on the backs of unlicensed content or counterfeit goods. While we absolutely support the idea of reducing intellectual property theft, SOPA and PIPA in their cur…Read more >
I'm happy to announce to our community that Wikia will be moving our 500+ domains from GoDaddy due to their support for SOPA legislation now working its way through the United States House of Representatives.
If you're familiar with the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), you'll understand how flawed the legislation is, and how negative it could be for the entire Wikia community. For those of you who have not heard of SOPA or its sister bill Protect-IP Act (PIPA) currently in the United States Senate please take a look at the IP Law Wiki (http://iplaw.wikia.com/) -- it's a good place to get educated. If laws like SOPA or PIPA were to be actually passed, it is likely that sites with extensive user generated content like Wikia, Wikipedia, YouTub…Read more >
