    Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia! As usual, please note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

    As previously mentioned, we are in a trial period of releasing twice per week, on Tuesday and Thursday. The benefits of making this change are that updates get released faster, and individual releases are smaller and more manageable.

    This week, we'll continue with posting two technical update posts - one today, and one on Wednesday.

    As readers of the technical update blogs, we welcome your feedback as we move through this trial period.

This week, we are posting this single technical update blog, containing details of yesterday's and tomorrow's releases.

    In the future, when needed, the technical update will include a 'Looking Ahead' section to give details of high-profile changes expected the following week. As readers of the technical update blogs, we welcome your feedback as we move…

    Hey everyone. It's Rappy from the Community Support Team bringing you an update on the Volunteer Spam Task Force (VSTF).
