Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Wednesday, so we're posting this on a Tuesday to give you advance notice. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • We will be rolling out improvements to image behaviour when a new revision of a file is uploaded - the new revision will spread across the caches faster and more reliably.
  • The welcome tool stopped welcoming users for a few days last week - a fix for this is already live.
  • YouTube videos that were valid and were removed during our video clean-up are now reinstated.

Select Known Issues

  • We are investigating an issue preventing users from changing their account's email address. Feel free to contact us if you need yours changed in the meantime.
