The Loop and Fandom in 2019!

Hey guys!

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!

Global Taxonomy, Templates, and JavaScript!

Hi guys! Fandom staff posted two important and exciting blogs recently which I wanted to make you aware of!

Global taxonomy

The title sounds really fancy and complicated, but this boils down to Fandom recommending content you want to see. Fandom has received feedback from users who are receiving recommendations to visit certain wikis they are not interested in.

With this data driven approach, users on a wiki will receive recommendations for new communities to visit based on what typical readers of that subject are interested in. That way you can attract like-minded users to your community and you get to visit other wikis you are interested in!

Please do read the blog for more information. If you have any questions on this, please feel free to l…

Introducing Special:Analytics!

Hey guys!

Introducing Special:Analytics, a new statistics tracking tool for admins on all Fandom wikis!

While you don't have access to the feature on this wiki yet, the feature includes some really insightful statistics that should allow admins to inform some wiki decisions, such as:

  • Top viewed pages
  • # of page views (daily over the past 30 days)
  • Most visited files
  • Desktop vs mobile sessions
  • and more!

So as I mentioned above, this feature is really great as it allows you to see what areas are doing very well and how you can capitalise on them. For example, the tool shows us the Wallace article is one of the most popular articles on the wiki. We have acted upon this by featuring it in prominent locations such as the main page and this wiki's navigat…
