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.
These users, noted with a "COUNCILOR" tag on their user profile, 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.
How can I join?
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. Staff will then review your contributions across the site to see if you are the right fit. If you are, you may be officially invited to join the Community Council.
