Every wiki I see, it has rarely been used in a while. What is it for? --Thenewguy34(Other) 09:42, May 28, 2012 (UTC)

In theory, it's a place where the community can see which parts of the wiki need work. The theory generally hasn't worked out too well in Wikia practice. The 888th Avatar (talk) 11:56, May 28, 2012 (UTC)
The community portal is a standard part of the MediaWiki wiki engine and early on was a simple page to share info among users as a one page bulletin board. It quickly evolved into an announcement page with the talk page used for discussions. Since wiki forums are standard now on Wikia wikis, they usually serve as a better place for community discussion, but for new small wikis, the community portal still can have its uses. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 31 May 2012 1:17 PM Pacific

So that is what Community Portal is. I am going to give it a shot on the Golden Sun Wiki (Sandbox can be found here). It does not appear to be the most popular feature, but I'll give it a shot. --Thenewguy34(Other) 23:34, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
