What's on your mind?
Hi all! I have an awesome update regarding the Unified Community Platform (UCP).
As a reminder, the UCP is a new unified platform giving users the up-to-date MediaWiki experience including the latest features! More can be found here as a reminder.
In terms of new updates, Fandom staff posted three staff blogs:
Unified Community Platform: The Vision, Purpose, and Process - This update provides a clearer idea as to the end goals of the platform. This includes mobile editing, latest features, customization options - and more! Mobile editing will be an especially popular addition, given the rising number of mobile users across Fandom.
Creating new wikis on the Unified Community Platform - Fandom now allows users to create new communities on the UCP! Users will be able to get a first look at the new platform. The wiki creation process will also aim to prevent duplicate wikis being created, allowing for users to contribute to active communities and be part of a Fandom project viewed by massive amounts of passionate fans!
Profile and Message Wall on the Unified Community Platform - Profiles are getting an update on the UCP, with a cleaner design and also more freedom for users to express themselves. More fields have been added and you can now add a banner image like you can on Twitter and other social media sites. Message Wall is also receiving a lift, getting a cleaner design more in line with Discussions to keep things consistent.
What do you think of these updates? Comment below and feel free to leave questions on those blog posts so staff can respond! :)
Hello users, I am Frost Formling a major contributor of this wiki. I have edited this wiki every day and I am eligible for wiki Adoption. I see that the only active staff member is Chris a wiki manager and he has only given himself temporary Administrator Rights and wants to appoint new staff members. Other than him the earlier Bureaucrat has been inactive since 2012 and had very few edits during the Release of the Video Game Top Gun: Hard Lock.
Knowing this wiki needs a new Administrator for Cleanup for the new movie which I cant wait to see, I would like a promotion to Bureaucrat. I have lots of experience with other Wiki's for instance I am a Bureaucrat on the Bourne Directory where I am the Most active user. I am also a Content Moderator or Founder and Several other wiki's including The Battle Force 5 Canon and Fanon Wiki's. I even Adopted the Acceleracers Fanon wiki which I set up a pretty good background on.
So Since this wiki needs a new staff member are you okay with me becoming a Bureaucrat?
I'm here to let you know that staff have exciting plans for the future of video on Fandom, including the future of what was Featured Video (FV) and what is replacing it.
A replacement for FV, titled The Loop, is set to be a mini-show that will be different for each vertical, highlighting the latest news from topics relating to that vertical. The best bit? These videos will use wiki articles and will encourage users to visit the wikis featured in the videos to find out more.
As a new episode of The Loop will be released weekly, you will see a wide variety of wikis of featured so there is every chance yours will be featured too!
Please see the latest staff blog for more details and feel free to ask me any questions!
Secondly, staff posted a blog about Fandom in 2019 and the amazing things achieved! Here's to a great 2020. :)
