What's on your mind?
Hi all! I have an awesome update regarding the Unified Community Platform (UCP).
As a reminder, the UCP is a new unified platform giving users the up-to-date MediaWiki experience including the latest features! More can be found here as a reminder.
In terms of new updates, Fandom staff posted three staff blogs:
Unified Community Platform: The Vision, Purpose, and Process - This update provides a clearer idea as to the end goals of the platform. This includes mobile editing, latest features, customization options - and more! Mobile editing will be an especially popular addition, given the rising number of mobile users across Fandom.
Creating new wikis on the Unified Community Platform - Fandom now allows users to create new communities on the UCP! Users will be able to get a first look at the new platform. The wiki creation process will also aim to prevent duplicate wikis being created, allowing for users to contribute to active communities and be part of a Fandom project viewed by massive amounts of passionate fans!
Profile and Message Wall on the Unified Community Platform - Profiles are getting an update on the UCP, with a cleaner design and also more freedom for users to express themselves. More fields have been added and you can now add a banner image like you can on Twitter and other social media sites. Message Wall is also receiving a lift, getting a cleaner design more in line with Discussions to keep things consistent.
What do you think of these updates? Comment below and feel free to leave questions on those blog posts so staff can respond! :)
I'm here to let you know that staff have exciting plans for the future of video on Fandom, including the future of what was Featured Video (FV) and what is replacing it.
A replacement for FV, titled The Loop, is set to be a mini-show that will be different for each vertical, highlighting the latest news from topics relating to that vertical. The best bit? These videos will use wiki articles and will encourage users to visit the wikis featured in the videos to find out more.
As a new episode of The Loop will be released weekly, you will see a wide variety of wikis of featured so there is every chance yours will be featured too!
Please see the latest staff blog for more details and feel free to ask me any questions!
Secondly, staff posted a blog about Fandom in 2019 and the amazing things achieved! Here's to a great 2020. :)
Fandom staff posted two important and exciting blogs recently which I wanted to make you aware of!
The title sounds really fancy and complicated, but this boils down to Fandom recommending content you want to see. Fandom has received feedback from users who are receiving recommendations to visit certain wikis they are not interested in.
With this data driven approach, users on a wiki will receive recommendations for new communities to visit based on what typical readers of that subject are interested in. That way you can attract like-minded users to your community and you get to visit other wikis you are interested in!
Please do read the blog for more information. If you have any questions on this, please feel free to let me know!
Templates and scripting
The blog is packed with details so please do give it a read! Also feel free to ask me any questions.
Does anyone know what the Crain thing in the first movie at the time of the ice slide what they make an avalanche is or why it was there or why was the hulu dancer important?
If anyone knows the answer to these questions I would like to thank you for them Thank You my good comrade
today while editing a cute image of baby mumble with the amigos from the dvd poster cover of happy feet, I made a striking discovery.
Why are Lombardo, and Rinaldo with Mumble while at the same time at the background?
In the information category for Gloria's wiki page, it states that she " is first seen at the middle of the film. At Graduation Day, the two main contenders being Mumble and Seymour", however this is false due to the fact that she is first seen even before that like when she first showed off her heartsong at school and when before mumble has hatched and went after him calling “ come back mr.mumble”
I like it a lot. the mighty sven (song) will take me upon my crest and deliver me.
