Hey all! I wanted to invite you to Fandom's second The Downstream on Friday, September 10 at 11am EST (check for your local time here). It is a 2-hour live Twitch stream during which you will be briefed on what is happening on Fandom, with the latest news and updates.
This session will include 3 special guest, who will each bring a different set of expertise to the table:
- Joey Merkel, Director of Social Strategy & Operations: discover what social media can do for your wiki.
- Maggie Owens, Sr. Analyst - Site Analytics: observe how Fandom tracks and explains traffic trends on the platform.
- Max Spector, Director of Brand Design: learn how the new logo came to be over the rebranding process.
After the presentations, some questions, previously submitted by admin…
After all the blogs Fandom shared with previews, FandomDesktop is now LIVE for you to check out! During this time, logged-in users will be able to switch from Oasis to FandomDesktop as their wiki experience through an opt-in toggle, found in an on-site banner and in user preferences. You will also be able to switch back by changing your user preferences.
Please do note that not everything has been developed yet, so expect changes to still occur. However, you already get access now so editors and admins get used to the new design and, especially, the admins can prepare this community for full migration, which will come early this summer.
Admins, you should definitely check out the new Theme Designer and the FandomDesktop preparation guide for a…
Hey all! As you know, 2021 will be the year of the Fandom/Gamepedia desktop skin redesign, called FandomDesktop. In order to help communities better prepare, understand, but especially get insight and be able to get involved by sharing their feedback, Fandom has been releasing blog posts with the latest updates on the design.
The latest reveal is "A deeper look at Navigation on FandomDesktop", which gives you some more insights and mock-ups for how search, profile submenu, and notifications will look, and some insights as to how the decision about the new local navigation came to be.
If you have a few minutes to spare, I strongly recommend giving it a read (click here). Should you have any questions or concerns about it, please do not hesita…
Hey all! I am super glad that I get to reach out for this and ask for your input! Some of you may have already read the blog announcement on Community Central about this, but for those who haven't: Fandom announced that it would focus the upcoming 2 weeks on an all-hands quality of life project -- read "a two-week bug squashing effort"!
So my question to you all is: are there perhaps any bugs that have been annoying you since whenever UCP came along? This project is the perfect opportunity for you to get the word out about those things! Just drop your report in the comments here, leave me a message, or even reach out to me via Discord if you're more comfortable doing that, and I'll do my best to get your voice heard. These don't have to be t…
Greetings all, This is important information for anyone active in discussion. I have added three new discussion guidelines that I believe will help this community maintain respectfulness & order(the good kind, not the overly restrictive & oppressive kind). I was inspired by the guidelines at the Gravity Falls wiki which is home to a excellent thread mod Rhino Schneider lll. If anyone has any problem or concern about these new guidelines, please reply or message me.
6. No NSFW content.
7. Do not use words in a derogatory or hostile fashion.
8. Low-effort posts are discouraged, make sure your post/reply is spellchecked and comprehensible.
I encourage everyone to follow these guidelines & if a post does not reach this criteria then it will most l…
Hi, TUA fandom.
I have loved the Umbrella Academy ever since I started watching it, and I love working on this wiki, that has such a wonderful and loving community. I would like to become an admin, wiki manager, or content moderator. I think that doing this would really help me moderate or add on to the wiki.
THINGS I ATTEND TO DO AS ADMIN/MODERATOR:
- Take a look at the analytics to see which pages are being viewed the most and edit and/or fix them for the viewers.
- Update the Navigation bar.
- Block users who vandalize the pages (There have been a lot of users doing this, and I've had to restore the page to its original form)
- Set up new templates
- Change user rights for the dedicated users who have been working hard, and limit the activities of users…
(DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU DONT WANT SPOILERS AND HAVENT FINISHED THE SERIES YET!)
So, I have a theory for SEASON 3 of the Umbrella Academy. When they used the briefcase to get back home to 2019, Reginald Hargreeves was there and said, "I'd eventually knew you'd come". The Umbrella Academy members were shocked to see that their father was alive. The members then said they were back "home" in the umbrella academy house, but not really, Sir Reginald Hargreeves introduced them to the Sparrow Academy". I thought of that and realized, when they were invited by their own Father(Reginald Hargreeves) Five had talked about the things they had done in the future and how they were his kids and how they got scattered around in Texas 1963. Basically, my po…
OMG!! I just can't stand it. Been waiting so long already for the second season. I'm so excited! Why can't it just come out now?

or are they all hilarious?
Greeting, fellow Umbrella Academy fans.
As i looking through this wiki, i noticed that it really didn't have any administrator nor bureaucrat either. As the series will grow bigger with the upcoming season 2 of the Netflix series, as well as the comic book itself, i think the wiki could really be benefit for having at least an active staff.
Therefore, i decided to adopting the wiki so i can set a couple things up. The first thing is, of course, policies and guidelines, considering that many articles on this wiki had been repeatedly vandalism. The second thing is CSS and stuff, just to modified some thing and that. The most important point of this adoption is so this wiki can have an active admin, to watch over this wiki for a period of time.
