Introducing Admin Plus!

It has been awesome to see the excitement surrounding the announcements we made at Community Connect, and I am excited to give you some details about one of these new experiences: Admin+! (Or A+, if you’re fancy.)

One of our goals on the team is to work on ways we can help make sure wiki communities are safe, healthy places for all fans, and I am excited to announce that we are taking another step toward that goal! On April 4, we will be launching an updated version of the Wiki Rules and Blocking Policy.

In this blog, I’m going to go over some of the changes we are making to the policy as well as why we are making them.

Let’s start with the why - why are we updating the policy? Good question, and thank you for asking! The policy went live a year ago, and since then, we have received a lot of feedback from many users and communities.…
