    Hello, all!

    A couple of weeks ago, we announced Fandom Editor Rewards, a comprehensive program to express our gratitude for exceptional editors in new ways.


    In that post, I teased that there was another way to get your hands on cool stuff from Fandom coming soon. Today, I am happy to announce that we have created a merchandise portal on Design by Humans with a selection of brand new Fandom swag designs.

    While you are more than welcome to buy this merchandise, this isn’t about selling you Fandom t-…

    On August 20th, we at Fandom published our first video game, an awesome action-adventure roguelike with RPG elements called UnderMine, developed by the incredible two-person team at Thorium Entertainment. The game has been a great success, currently sitting at Very Positive in Steam ratings…

    • Better ways for contributors to communicate with staff

    Wikis are full of information, and organizing that information leads to a better experience for readers exploring your wiki. Categories are a part of our communities that add grouping and association to pages. They’re also a very wiki-centric concept; as such, there is less general research available under that term, and we rely on more of the data Fandom collects to determine the Best Practices. For research purposes in the non-wiki world, the Category is most akin to a web model called “topic…

    It’s been a long time since you’ve seen a meaningful update to Discussions, leaving communities feeling rightly frustrated with the state of Discussions and with Fandom for not providing long-awaited features. Honestly, we don’t blame you. You weren’t wrong.

    For the last eight months, we’ve been taking a long, hard look at our priorities and the things that we need to focus on in order to create a better community experience. There’s a lot we’re going to be announcing over the coming weeks and m…

    For the last several years, we've worked to broaden the ways that fans can participate on Wikia. At the core of that experience is and continues to be wiki editing - creating and expanding deep fan knowledge resources. We also knew that there was more to the fan experience than editing, which meant there was lots of untapped potential on the site. For example, we saw that fans want to share their thoughts about what they love, leading to the launch of our Fandom editorial hub earlier this year. …

    Hello Wikia!

    We have an exciting new feature to introduce today: the Community Page, which can be found at Special:Community across the top 5000 communities on Wikia!

    The wiki's aim is to provide detailed information about all aspects of the Lessa Manhwa, from the characters and chapters, to the world and weaponry. The first two seasons have been offici…
