Community Council
Community Council is a rotating group of Wikians selected by Wikia Staff to provide preliminary feedback on new features that are under development. Those features being beta tested by the group are enabled only on the Community Council Wiki accessible by Council members, Wikia Staff, and Wikia Helpers.

Responsibilities

The group is a beta test group providing early-stage feedback on some, but not all, new Wikia features. Because it is possible that some of these features may never move from development to production, access to the Council wiki is restricted. However, not all features that are rolled out have been beta tested by the Council. Consequently, not all features beta tested by the group are rolled out; and, not all features rolled out have been beta tested by the group.

Membership

The group is selected from the entire Wikia community, sitewide. Membership is rotated every few of months to allow fresh feedback from different users. The group is managed by the Community Council Project Manager, Sarah Manley.

Members

A list of members can be found at Special:ListUsers/council.
