What's on your mind?
Admins and content moderators should be able to protect certain sections of a page instead of only being able to protect the entire page.
There's a page in a wiki I'm part of that has had edit warring in a certain section, however a different section of the same page is updated on a daily basis, usually by regular contributors. One solution that currently exists is to protect the page then put the section that's updated daily into an unprotected template, but this may be confusing for newer editors that don't know what a template is. The other solution that currently exists (that I know of) is to have admins and content moderators update the page daily until the edit war has calmed down, but that would be inconvenient for them and would leave the page outdated for longer since there are less admins and content moderators than total contributors.
It would be simpler to allow admins and content moderators to protect certain sections of a page, so they can protect the section with edit warring and allow contributors to update the other section that requires daily edits.

What if you had disabled your account, but want to un-disable it 30 days later?
I think Fandom should add an "un-disable" account for disabled accounts 30+ days old.
Because if a person isnt interested in Fandom anymore when they disabled it, but a month later, they started gaining interest in Fandom again and want to un-disable their account.

Why isn't there any dark mode yet?
The low contrast text on white background gets really difficult to read.
Why is my Bio so tiny now? I honestly hate it.
I can barely edit anything.
If I want a layout, I can't get it because of it... And other people are angry about it too. I was talking to Lady Lostris (Wiki Representative/SOAP) about it, and she said, "Idk, it seems to show up in a normal font size to me when I visit your profile."
I dunno if she understood... Can anyone tell me why, or is there some way it can go back to the way it was?

I've held this in for too freaking long! First the pages are just ugly as all heck. But then you could switch between oasis and desktop, which was fine. Now who's idea was it to remove that? Really it made both audiences happy. Than you didn't allow than, why?xand then the discussion pages.
1. Its laggy and doesn't work
2. ITS SOOO FREAKING UGLY
Why fandom, just, just let us switch, it will make so many people happy. This is basically a death wish, and I'm sick of it. Plz add the option to chose back in!
It's more confusing and our notifs never load and they are not in the corner anymore.
Please fix this and I will be happy :D
Now that I visit two wikis frequently, it has become a routine to first check one wiki and then the other. I do this by clicking on a bookmark to access the first wiki and when I am done I open a second tab, click on the bookmark for the second wiki and close the first tab. I feel that there should be a button that would show frequently visited or favourite wikis that would let you do this. I know the difference in time and actions in minimal/non existent, but I feel like I am missing something. I searched the internet for this, but couldn't find anything. I have also looked for buttons that would let me add a wiki to favourites or show links to favourite wikis - nothing. The "WIKIS" button seems like it should show your favourite wikis (if you would/could add them of course), but it doesn't. This is similar to how Reddit shows your favourite subreddits or how YouTube shows your subscriptions. I know that the Fandom app has this, so desktop should have this as well.
How can I create something that appears in the bottom left corner of that wiki's screen?
*I know that I should not suggest it here, I already suggested it to fandom, using the contact button, I just wan to get opinions.
Whats you guys opinión to a user-right (will refer to it as rank) that gives users the ability to edit protected pages, get there edits autopatroled, and maybe even rollback, but nothing else. Some good editors don’t want any real responsibilities, which you have if your a content moderator, while that rank, would not give any extra responsibilities, while allowing good editors, to edit any page.
You think you can go on articles and simply spam comments as if nobody knew you're a "Community Admin"? No more!

..has gone? I can't see it anyway. Why?
As far as I know, there is no way to make it so that anonymous users can only comment. You're only able to allow them to both edit the wiki and comment, which isn't what I want. Lmk if there's any way to do this as Fandom is really limiting.
I don't understand why there needs to be an extra click in order to show the categories on a page. Is there a setting that automatically enables them to be shown? What's the idea behind this change?
Will the discussions be receiving an update too? I'd honestly be surprised if it did, because they got a big update last year.

On mobile, whenever I use FandomDesktop, it zooms in for some reason. Then I'd have to zoom out. It's just a bit annoying, that's all.

Okay so I was making a discussions post on the BGT Wiki informing every editor and/or visitor on the migration to Fandom Desktop. At the end of the post I linked the wikis rules for anyone interested in reading them, but before I did that I checked what the protection on the page was, but when I clicked that I noticed another button between the Move & Protect Button known as Purge. As an admin on that wiki I clicked the analytics in order to look at them and clicked the lighting button expecting to be taken to a lighting settings, but it just changed the lightings so I changed it back to the original lighting. But I hadn't tested or looked into the Purge button and I am wondering what it does, however I don't care to test out clicking on said button until I know for certain what it does in case it's some other form of delete or anything else that I don't want to click for any kind of reason. Granted, I could create a blank page and press the Purge button on it, before deleting it, but I don't really want to do that, but if I were to do that and make a page that already existed and click Purge on the new variant would it possibly work as a merging button and merge the two together?
Edit: For anyone else who is interested and is yet to test what the button does and is confused as to what it does, I've just tested myself by creating a page known as Test as I changed my mind after making this post. For anyone interested the Purge Button takes you to a settings screen of sorts and asks if you want to clear the cache of the page, if you change your mind click back and go back on the page but if you still want to purge click Ok. Beneath this is a message which states 'Purging a page clears the cache and causes the most current revision to appear', so if your reading a page and someone else is editing if you click the purge button and click ok when just as they complete their edit the page will have their edit added to what you were previously reading.

It would be very cool cuz not all posts are on topic
