Wikia (now known as FANDOM) has recently made some decisions that have invoked negative responses from several users. Of course, I'm not taking sides in this but I personally do think I can get used to the changes, which I have for the most part. So why are the Staff making changes people don't seem to like? Wouldn't that hurt their number of users joining? Well, no and here's why.
Advertising is understandably disliked as it gets in the way of things from watching YouTube videos, visiting websites and even makes its way on illegal websites from what I've heard. However, believe it or not, advertising does something good for the website as well: Revenue. Let's think of how you create an account. You just type in a username, password and ema…

Hi, I'm that guy with an incredibly long username that many of you use copy and paste to type out. It has come to my attention that trolling is still a big issue and I have noticed some people responding to it incorrectly so I will tell you how to deal with trolls.

Wish me luck and see ya in 4 weeks. :) ~Jackninja5DipperGravityFallsRead more >
Some of you might also recognise me as that guy with the long username who occasionally goes on Community Central's chat or a bureaucrat on the Plants vs. Zombies Wiki or an assistant on the SpongeBob Wiki.
I usually don't do this but I'm making a blog to promote the Mr. Bean Wiki. I've been an admin and bureaucrat since October 2012 and we have not got many contributors there. I am semi-active due to work on other wikis but I would appreciate it if other users got involved.
I have been a fan of Mr. Bean since I was about 9 years of age and I'm 17 right now so I've been a fan for 8 years. It still holds up as funny and enjoyable to me today. I'm pretty sure there are plenty of other fans of Mr. Bean who would like to contribute to the Mr. Be…Read more >
