    If you're reading this, then you're already familiar with staff blogs here on Community Central. You're reading one right now, after all! But do you know what else Community Central has to offer? There's lots to do here beyond reading staff blogs, and we'd love for you to join us!

    Community Central is actually the first Wikia community ever created. Our technical guy at the time (yes, just one!) created it as the hub of all the future communities to come. Over time, it has grown into an even mor…

    Wikians are often at the epicenter of their favorite fandoms. You represent the biggest experts there are, not to mention that you have some of the most intense passions for pop culture in the world. That's why it's not very surprising to know that social media is an important tool for your community. What better way is there to talk to other fans and let them know about your community?

    Every day, we talk to fans on our own brand accounts, @getfandom and @Wikia, and we've learned a great deal ab…

    Whose Desk is Whose?

    April 12, 2016 by Sannse



    Wikia is written by all sorts of fans. From Marvel fanatics to Trekkers to genealogy enthusiasts and more, everyone can find a place for their passion in the Home of Fandom. One of the best parts of working at Wikia is knowing that, like you, the staff in our office are also superfans. The fact that we're all fans of something is a big part of what motivates us to make Wikia such an awesome place for fans.

    Here in our San Francisco office, we display our passions on the "Wall of Fandom." This is…

    You won’t get a shiny diploma you can hang on your wall - but Wikia University is still a course worth going through. Maybe you’re nodding vigorously right now, because you’ve already completed every study track, and consider yourself an editing pro. But maybe you’re scratching your head instead, wondering what I’m talking about?


    Wikia University isn’t a real life campus somewhere (although that would be awesome!), but a series of short videos that teach you how to use Wikia. The videos are divi…

    Greetings Wikians! I’m very excited to announce a new feature today - Curated Main Pages on mobile devices.

    For most communities the main page is its single most viewed page. Four out of the top five pages on Wikia are main pages, in fact, and that makes sense — a search for “Star Wars wiki” is very likely to return the main page as the first result.

    Main pages on desktop are typically a large collection of content, galleries, templates, and design elements, representing each community very well.…

    The logged-in user experience offers a number of benefits on Wikia. Registered accounts have features like Notifications, Chat, and the ability to follow articles and discussions, just to name a few. In the coming months we’ll be working to highlight these benefits more and see what we can do to drive more readers and anonymous editors to create accounts. With more motivations and prompts to return to a community, a user with an account is much more likely to become an active contributor and d…

    Howdy howdy howdy, Wikians!

    Today we’re (choo-choo!) hopping on the mobile train. We have mobile app news and features to share. And oh my goodness these apps are incredibly popular.

    Wikia released the first five Community Apps in November of 2013. Simple premise: Wikians produce high-quality, engaging content, and apps are a good way collect and organize content for viewers. Since then, we’ve released over 100 iOS apps and more than 80 Android apps, with no end in sight. Combined, these apps surp…

    Hello Wikians! This week you’ll start to see something new at the top of article pages — buttons for sharing your community’s work via social media.

    These options will make it easier for both editors and readers to get your wikia’s expertly-crafted content out into the wider fan universe for your topic. Comments, likes, reblogs, and retweets can indicate how useful and relevant a page is for others. Some of those readers might even come visit and make some contributions of their own!



    We’re espec…

    Inheriting History

    June 25, 2016 by Coloradofree

    Well to start, my adoption went through and I was quite pleased. There was no fanfare or shouts just an active link at the bottom of the page that said Admin.

    As I started poking around and looking for issues to fix I began looking in to previous members and admins. I was shocked to see that the wiki was founded around 2004, and it has been in existence since then. Obviously, the Wiki changed hands from time to time but the one thing that prevailed during all this time was the integrity of the i…

    Hello fellow Wikians! Do you like memes? Have you heard of Weegee? Do you find Weegee interesting?

    Well come to Weegeepedia! We are a fanon community inspired by both the Weegee meme itself and the former Weegee fad! We have our own canon, and we would be interested in seeing what you could add on to it!


    Weegee is a character based on a sprite found in the educational game Mario is Missing! Eventually, a LUElinks user named MonkeyintheCloset remade the sprite into a vectorized image. This became …

    Templates are a great way to add information to your wiki. However, there are both pros and cons to them.
    • Templates are used for many purposes, such as notices and categorizing. This way, you can just type out

    Note: since the last blog was updated way too late to still allow comments, I have remade the blog here for you to comment :)
