Council

The Community Council is Fandom's private product testing and feedback group. Members are Fandom users who have been selected by Staff to provide preliminary feedback and user testing on new features that are under development.

This group of users have a tag that can be found on their profile that says: "COUNCILOR". They represent multiple supported languages and all types of Fandom communities.

How does it work?

When Fandom Staff has a new product or idea to share with the Community Council, the members of the group are invited to test that product and/or provide feedback on it. This includes:

  • Showing Councilors products and prototypes early, in order to get feedback and make changes before announcing the product to the whole community.
  • Collecting ideas for new products and providing data to plan new product releases.
  • Organizing occasional beta testing for large product releases.

The feedback provided by Councilors is invaluable to the product development and release process, so we can incorporate user feedback before we even post about a product on Community Central.

FAQ

How can I join Community Council?

If you think you are the right fit to join a product testing and feedback group, you can contact Fandom Staff and ask to join the Community Council.

To be considered for Community Council, you must be able to converse well in written English. You should also have a history of collaboration and positive interaction with other users, beyond working on wiki articles.
