  • How do you are badges?

    • You need to be an admin and request Achievements be added to the wiki. Not sure if they still allow it, though and it probably won't work for UCP wikis created after March 11, 2020 or so.

    • They definitely still allow if for legacy wikis. However, it looks like it is not yet available for UCP wikis.

    • Well, Achievements is deprecated, so the chances of it get ported to UCP are very, very low.

    • Okay.

      It isn't clear if new wikis will be able to enable Achievements but it seems that they have the intention of porting it. Or at least, finding some way to preserve the achievements for wikis that already use them.

    • Okaaay?

    • So there is the possibility that you may be able to enable it at some future date. However, it is not certain.

    • Fandom has recently released a new platform (called United Community Platform or UCP for short) that they are using for new wikis. This new platform is missing a lot of features available on the older platform. They are working on adding some of the older features to UCP (referred to as porting). However, they have not released a list of features that will be ported. So right now, we can only guess if Achievements will be available on UCP wikis.

      Fandyllic is saying that Achievements is an old abandoned extension. This is true. That is why he is saying he doesn't think it is likely to be ported.

      On the other hand, MisterWoodhouse (a Fandom staff member) told me that, during phase 1 rollout of UCP, Achievements will be kept. Phase 1 rollout includes converting all legacy-platform wikis to UCP. So if Achievements will be kept at least during this period, then that implies (but does not explicitly state) that there will be some adaptation of Achievements for UCP. However, MisterWoodhouse provided no details on what exactly this means. It is possible they just copy over the badges and points for display purposes but disable the feature itself; making it impossible to earn additional badges. It is also possible they may port it but only allow older wikis to use the extension.

      The bottom line is we just don't know at this time.

    • @Andrewds1021: Where did MisterWoodhouse say Achievements would be kept? I noticed at least Kirkburn noted on the Help page that Achievements won't work on UCP wikis for now and included a nice link: https://fandom.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044776693

      See the quote in #6. The text "MisterWoodhouse wrote" is a link to the comment.

    • Interesting... that was way back in February, so I wonder how it is going. Seems like we would have heard a progress report by now.
