Alright, so in this blog, I'm going to compare two chat features that are/were on this specific wiki: Community Central Chat and the official Fandom/Gamepedia server. I'll add a poll and ask which chatting feature you prefer, but before the poll, I'll do some history about both servers, but you can go ahead and skip to the poll if you like.
Community Central Chat was a simple chat service available on Community Central. It was primarily made for instantaneously receiving help about wiki problems and technical issues, though many people misused it as a free-chatting service, but that wasn't definitely very punishable, of course. The guidelines of using it as a free-chatting service were made in 2018.
If I remember correctly, back at the end o…

Now, the staff are planning to convert wikia.com URLs to fandom.com URLs, as mentioned in their original blog post. A lot of people have been complaining this change, for numerous reasons, the most common being that "fandom.com doesn't make a wiki look like a wiki, and rather look more like a fan site". While that visually may sound true at first glance, the truth is, the problem can be solved in a few days, though the method will be bizarre. And before I say the solution, all wikia.com URLs will be converted fandom.com URLs, eventually in 2019, and the URL is the only thing changing, and nothing else. Moreover, this change in inevitable. If your wiki is converted, you can't change back. Though, this solution can work at all times.

Hello. My name is JustLeafy and recently, I have founded the Flow Free Wiki.
The Flow Free Wiki is a wiki that describes/will describe about everything in the Flow Free App, including the levels, colors, packs and the expansions. There is no confirmation if I will include the information about the packs and levels from the expansions (I won't, because it would be too much work, anyway), due to the fact that the wiki was built intentionally for the original Flow Free App.
There aren't pages for Flow Free levels themselves, because levels themselves don't provide too much information, and otherwise, I would create like 5000 pages. This is why I make a page for every 30 levels. That way, people can retain information of many levels at the same …

Hello guys. JustLeafy here and today, I'll be guiding you on Special:WikiFeatures. In that special page, there are optional features that can be added into your wiki, to enhance the wiki experience.
There are two categories of wiki features:
- Normal wiki features: These are the wiki features that are complete and don't expect anymore development anytime soon.
- Labs: The wiki features in this category are still experimental or in beta.
Note: Anybody can view Special:WikiFeatures, but only admins can toggle the switch of the features (enable or disable these features).
- Polls: Enabled by default, it gives the user the ability to add a poll.
- Blogs: Blogs allow users on your wiki to create their own blog posts, and it can also add the ability to add an…

Hey guys, JustLeafy here. Today, I would like to talk about why FANDOM is, to me, the perfect website. Most of the reasons seem to be quite obvious, though.
First of all, there are so many wikis to choose from. Want to know facts you didn't know about your favorite characters, in let's say, Star Wars? This website, specifically, Wookieepedia is the best place for that information. Of course, it is not really expected to literally see every single piece of information of anything in any franchise possible, but hey, at least you can edit, add or fix information, along with adding one or more new pages. That seems to be very obvious and people may think I'm stupid for saying that, but it does seem to be a good thing to me, as a fan created a w…Read more >
