    A year ago, Wikia introduced a new user group across our network called “Moderators”. The purpose of this new group was to aid administrators by enabling and designating more trusted users to keep track of the conversations happening across different Wikia features, like Forum and Message Wall.

    Since then, we’ve been monitoring how the group has been used, gathering direct feedback from our users on how the group can be improved and running some ideas by our Community Council.

    Today, we’re announcing the next step in improving moderator groups by introducing two key changes that will become effective tomorrow, January 14th. First, the existing “moderator” group will be renamed “Discussions Moderator” and have a few additional rights granted …

    Welcome back to our regular update schedule, which resumes with Thursday's release. We hope you all had an enjoyable holiday period, however you spent it! Below are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Tuesday and Thursday - today's notes are for tomorrow's site update.

    Throughout 2015, Wikia has been hard at work improving the world of templates. Templates are a huge component in creating and sharing content on Wikia and have literally hundreds of purposes and designs.

    We have tried to accomplish two things with templates this year. First and foremost, we've tried to make them more portable. Portability means that you can read content easily on any device, whether it's desktop, mobile web, mobile apps, or other second screen experiences. Tools to help with this include Portable Infoboxes and Flags. We've also been trying to make sure admins have more tools to understand and organize their templates better, through better editing interfaces and some of the information presented on the Insights platform.

    • An issue that could cause avatars to revert to older versions will be fixed.
    • An error that caused daily special page updates to fail on some communities (e.g. Special:WantedPages) will be fixed.
    • We will be making a tweak that should improve the behaviour of references when DPL is used on the same page.
