    Hey gang!

    The time has come to take a look back at an extra long February, thanks to Leap Day!


    Last week, Perkins Miller, CEO of Fandom, stopped by the Official Fandom and Gamepedia Editors Discord server to serve as February’s Ask Me Anything guest. Here is the transcript.

    Hey gang!

    This Wednesday, February 26th, we are holding an Ask Me Anything session with our CEO, Perkins Miller, on our official Fandom and Gamepedia Discord server for registered users. That’s right. The guy at the top will be taking questions on anything from editors like you!

    At Community Connect, we as a company made a number of commitments to our attendees in the closing segment that Brandon and I presented. While the video of that is not yet available (there is a LOT of footage to parse), the final of those commitments was this AMA session.

    Perkins Miller joined Fandom just over a year ago as our CEO. Beyond his Fandom experience, he has had a really interesting career that many of you might want to ask him about, including working for …

    Hello everyone!

    As promised in my recap of Community Connect 2020, it’s time to talk about the Unified Community Platform (UCP for short) again. For this post I'd like to briefly take a step back to provide more context before diving into the details of the project. After that, we can talk about what Phase 1 and Phase 2 mean, the schedule, and some Phase 1 specifics you need to know about right now. Full disclosure, this is a long post, so buckle up!


    At its core, the Unified Community Platform is all about bringing Fandom and Gamepedia wikis together on to the same version of MediaWiki, serving as the foundation upon which we can innovate. Right now, the Fandom platform is a very customized version of MediaWiki 1.19. This was done intentiona…

    Hello, everyone!

    Even though January has felt like half a year, it really was only one month and it's just about over! Let's take a look back at all the awesome things which happened in the past 31 days...


    For the first time since 2016, we held our signature Community Connect event. It was a fantastic opportunity to get 40 staff members in a room with 50 editors to discuss everything from the Unified Community Platform and Search Engine Optimization to cheesecake and which staff member would kill Jar-Jar Binks given the chance. The answer to that is Adil, our Chief Technology/Product Officer, who absolutely cannot stand that goofy Gungan. The long weekend at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida was incredibly productive and you can read mor…

    Hello everyone!

    As many of you know, we held our first Community Connect in several years a couple of weeks ago, down at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida! The weekend was spent discussing wikis, the Unified Community Platform (UCP), the future of Fandom and Gamepedia, and other burning topics like video, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), theming, editor updates, and the types of enhancements we can make for our users once the UCP work is done. While the entire conversation we want to have with the community about what all was said there will take some time, I wanted to share some big takeaways from the event now and preview the next few blogs.


    A recurring theme of the weekend was how getting together and communicating beyond just text i…
