Here are the latest technical updates on Fandom. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Tuesday and Thursday - today's notes are for tomorrow's site update. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

Major Bug Fixes

  • We will fix an issue that could cause a user to be unable to load Special:Preferences.
  • An issue that could cause an IP block to behave oddly after being modified will be fixed.

Other Notable Changes

Recent mobile app updates are listed on Apps Technical Updates, and detailed site CSS-related updates can be found at

  • The company logo will be updated to reflect current Fandom branding.
  • Featured wiki videos will become available on mobile pages with an infobox - see User blog:Brandon Rhea/Wiki Modernization: Videos on Mobile Devices for more info.
  • Ukrainian users will see English-language messages as a fallback if the the message is not available in Ukrainian. (Previously, it would show Russian as the fallback.)
  • Special:Images will become available on Italian wikis, to match other languages.
  • Account time zones will be updated to match some changes to real-world time zones, such as Moscow being on UTC+3 rather than UTC+4. (Most users will notice no difference.)

Known Issues

  • WAM statistics are currently unavailable for May 15 - this has been reported for investigation.
  • The 'Discover New Wikis' section should be showing a more varied selection of wikis - this is being looked into.
