  • Hello!

    This is Chen from FANDOM’s Community team.

    How would you like to get more readers and editors onto your community? We’re building a new feature that we hope will do just that, and you can help shape it.

    Over the last year, we’ve been working on a brand new feature - Community Builder, and we’ve identified a few wikis as the best candidates to have this first experience. And, your wiki is one of them! Why? Because it has a great structure for characters, seasons, episodes, etc! You can simply customize the page type to fit your needs. We designed the Community Builder from the start in mind to mirror that same structure.

    This new layout is still early in its life, and we’re testing a bunch of ideas. We would be thrilled to have you help us learn how to make it even better! Would you be interested in joining us on this journey?

    Before you give it a try, I would like to tell you some exciting key points about this tool:

    • Mobile capabilities: Community builder is designed to work across all devices, including desktop and mobile! It means you can create and view pages super easily. We want the fans of your community can contribute anytime and anywhere, no matter with their phones or their desktops. Simple and easy!
    • Structured data: All content on your community can display in a more powerful way. Visitors can easily find the information they want to read, and you can even present the information with less edits: by updating a single character page, you can have that data added to all other relevant pages automatically. How cool is that?!

    Here is a great example how it looks like: Yellowstone wiki. Feel free to check it out!

    I hope this has grabbed your interest. If you have any questions, ask away. If everything looks good to you, we’d love to switch you over to the new layout. Does this sound good to you? Please let me know and I will take care of the rest.

    • I recently got help in converting all of the infoboxes here to be portable. I don't use wiki on any mobile devices so I'm not exactly sure how that normally looks, but I do know that I prefer the style of how it looks on a desktop. If you look here, you'll see we have the red borders and lines. I think it's a simple design that's still aesthetically pleasing for the reader. On the site you linked, the infoboxes were without any border or color, which I was not a fan of.

      The theme designer is very important as it's what makes each wiki unique, fitting whatever topic the site is about. I don't really like the idea of converting the site to this new mode without a theme designer. It sounds like you guys have a good idea on what you want to include in this update, but until those additions are made, I don't think I'm ready for the wiki to make the change just yet.

    • Hi DeviousPeed!

      Thank you for your honest and great feedback! I will bring these ideas to the team to consider. They are very helpful for us to develop this tool for next in the future.

      Meanwhile, we are currently working on the theme designer and I will come back to let you take a look once it's ready. We would love to have your thoughts on it. Truly appreciated!
