Fandom Spotlights are images and links that appear at the bottom of each page in the "Explore Wikis" module. The spotlights are created by Fandom staff and run for a few weeks.

Although most of the spotlighted communities are chosen by Fandom staff, Fandom users can also request a spotlight for any community by adding a request to the talk page.

You can request a spotlight here.

Fandom staff will make all final decisions on spotlights.

Best practices

When you request a spotlight, your community should follow these best practices:

  • The community should have at least 200 content pages, not counting stubs. Stub, or very short articles (less than about 300 bytes; listed at Special:Shortpages) and articles marked with a stub template should make up no more than a fifth of all pages.
  • The main page should have at least one picture and clear links to the most important content.
  • There should be a clear category structure to help readers navigate around the site. Every content page should be in a category (Special:UncategorizedPages should be empty).
  • The community should not be in the middle of choosing new admins or any other upheavals; it should be a stable, friendly place.
  • The community should have a customized design.
  • The community should not use offensive language or include inappropriate images.

Promoting your community

If a community that you work on hasn't been spotlighted yet, don't despair! There are lots of ways to promote the community and attract new contributors. You can start by writing a blog about your community! Then check out "Building a community" on Fandom Help for tips on how to bring more attention to the project.
