Calling all witches and warlocks!

Hocus Focus Header.jpg

Bubble, bubble, we’re in trouble, and we need YOUR help sprinkling some magic across Fandom for the Halloween season.

I know what you might be thinking.. isn’t Halloween just a conspiracy invented by the candy companies? Possibly. But that doesn’t mean we can’t join in on the fun too!

So you know what that means.. it’s that time of the year for another spooky editing marathon, and the Movies/TV/Anime Team wants you involved!

Not a witch or a warlock? Well, that’s ok! Mortals are welcome to join too. Who knows, maybe you’ll actually be transformed into a witch after this. No promises though.

So What's the Plan?

From Wednesday October 28 to Tuesday November 3, Movies/TV/Anime will be organizing an effort to focus editors to contribute to horror-themed wikis. Each community selected will have specific content goals we would like to hit, but the focus of the project is to have fun and collaboratively edit.

How Do I Get Involved?

We've made that simple for you! Come and join our dedicated project Discord server and sign up! You can help one wiki or several depending on your level of interest and time constraints. Some wikis need more work, while others need smaller updates.

What Communities Are We Editing?

Hocus Focus Craft.jpg

The Craft is a supernatural horror film about a group of four outcast teenage girls who pursue witchcraft for their own gain but soon encounter negative consequences. Since its release in 1996, the film has developed a cult following, and inspired the creation of a stand-alone sequel, titled The Craft: Legacy, by Blumhouse Productions. The Craft: Legacy is on demand now, so have a watch and come contribute to the wiki!

The Craft Wiki could use some spiffing, as well content for the new film. Work on this wiki will include:

  • Main page overhaul (including Legacy info)
