Hi all! Fandom posted an 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.

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 post…
Hi guys! Fandom staff posted two important and exciting blogs recently which I wanted to make you aware of!
- Global taxonomy
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 l…
Hello, I've been editing here for quite a while now, but this wiki is really cluttered, with unecessary pages, multiple article stubs, poor editing, etc. I want to help take this wiki to the next level. This wiki has a lot of potential, however there are no active administrators or experienced coders that can help do that. Very recently, I became eligible to adopt a wiki again, so I want to adopt this wiki so we can bring it up to reality, clean it, fix it and revamp it, as well as elect more admins as well. I have already started doing this, I revamped the Home Page from what it was, to how it is now, I've also been fixing character pages and am in the process of creating custom infoboxes. How would you guys feel about me adopting the wik…
Hi Fresh Prince,
In case we haven't met yet, hi, I'm Andrew. I'm Wikia's technical community manager. If you have no idea what that means, my job is to make sure our partners and users are properly set up with the right content, tools, and (when something fails) technical solutions.
Last month, in partnership with Sony, we launched Wikia for TV SideView. TVSV electronic programming guide for Android that comes pre-loaded on Sony's Android devices. Now, when users access their favorite shows on the TVSV, they can browse your wikia's information alongside programming notes like airtime. It has been a smashing success thus far.
In fact, Fresh Prince Wikia - along with a few others I'll be contacting - has ended up being more popular than we'd an…
