  • Hey there! My name's Chris and I just wanted to make you aware that I'll be taking over from SilverFlight as the Fandom Wiki Manager for this wiki. Let me know if I can help with anything!

    How have things been on the wiki? :) --Spongebob456 talk@fandom 18:18, May 28, 2020 (UTC)

    • Hello, Chris. Welcome. Things are going largely well here, everyone's been busy working on their tasks, such as me currently working from the "Wanted pages" list. We have frequently dealt with anonymous users making unnecessary edits to pages, namely categories irrelevant to pages, such as death categories on pages about currently living characters, but apart from that, everything is going well.

    • Hey! Awesome you guys have giving yourselves different tasks to do. How do you assign those out? Do the admin team communicate with each other off wiki?

      In terms of anonymous users, it is possible to disable anonymous editing here altogether. Would that ease the situation with categories? I can disable anonymous editing for you. :) --Spongebob456 talk@fandom

    • We never really assign tasks, everyone just uses their initiative. One of our users, who is not an admin, is primarily responsible for updating appearance lists, and, as far as I can remember, that task was never set for them by an admin.

      As for disabling anonymous editing, if it's possible, it would be a massive weight off all our shoulders :)

    • Sounds great! I think that's a sign of a good team in a way if users know what each other are doing and can allocate tasks in an unspoken way if that makes sense.

      It might not hurt to consider perhaps a Discord server or something so members of the community can talk to each other - might be a great way to talk about the series in a live chat environment. Just something to think about. :)

      Anonymous editing is disabled! Hopefully that makes your life easier. --Spongebob456 talk@fandom

  • Hi I have noticed that episode pages for Episode 8586 to 8599 are all protected from editing and was wondering if you know why that is and if there's any chance you could change that? I wanted to change Wendy and Al over from guest to regular cast but couldn't do it on those episodes.

  • Hello there!
    How are you doing? I'm sharing with you an important message about the upcoming United Community Platform (UCP) this year. As you know, FANDOM and Gamepedia will receive a huge renovation for improvements of editor/user/visitor experience planned to allow all extensions currently available to the MediaWiki engine. And due to that, the community will be going through phases of the development. To stay up to date about these upcoming changes, the blog is available for you to reference. Additionally, please be on the lookout for UCP phase releases and keep the users informed. For any questions and others, as always, please don't hesitate to message me about them, and I will be happy to answer them for you!

  • Do you think the List of Deaths page should have a section for book characters? It could have the name of the character, date of death and the book they were last mentioned in. Also, do you think the first and last book appearances should be named in a character's infobox under "first/last appearance"?

  • Hi there! Quick update on FANDOM's end-of-the-year term. First, there will be changes with featured videos: as of the end of this December, "Featured" Video will be receiving some trial run experiments in hopes of improving its quality, reasons being that videos featured on a page tend to be outdated or spout all the information the user can already read on the article. The main goal will be to figure out how to complement wiki content. Because of that, you might receive a video called "The Loop" play for anonymous users, which will be meant purely to collect visitation data in the vein of the Global Taxonomy method. It won't affect all users, so you might not notice. But if you want to learn more, you can go to the blog post. For more info on Fandom's year in review, you can check out the community post. Let me know if you have any questions, and happy holidays!

  • Hi again! I'm writing to let you know about the Global Taxonomy. This is a feature that accumulates wikis a user visits into a list of recommended wikis tailored to them. In this context, it'll attract fans and newcomers to the wiki! You can read more about it on the blog, plus if you're interested in template use, you can check out this link, too. Hope you find them helpful!

  • Hi again! I would like to inform you there is a new Special:Analytics page you can request and access on the admin dashboard! In this way, you can use it to keep track of the number of edits daily, and which users are contributing. More info is available on the Help:Analytics dashboard and the blog post. If you already knew about it but have any questions, let me know!
