Here are the latest technical updates on FANDOM. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Tuesday and Thursday - today's notes are for tomorrow's site update. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

Major Bug Fixes

  • The previously mentioned button to disable autoplay for featured videos for two weeks will now apply to all wikis, not just the wiki it was clicked on.

Other Notable Changes

Recent mobile app updates are listed on Apps Technical Updates, and detailed site CSS-related updates can be found at

  • MediaWiki:Edit has been removed from the MediaWiki whitelist as some concerns about its behavior were identified, and due to the updated customization policy.
  • We are continuing to partially re-run the rename process for some accounts. We identified a period of time where the rename process may not have fully completed, so this is being done to make sure they're sorted.
  • We are continuing spring cleaning of our codebase. These changes should not have any user-facing impact, but if you spot any issues after the update please do let us know!
