There's less than one week left to vote in the 2021 Stirlings. Come help us honor our best writers and content from the past year. Voting will close around midnight on January 26 (GMT); winners will be announced shortly after that.
What's on your mind?
Ho ho ho! It's Christmas Eve, and every boy and girl knows what that means: there's just one week left to make nominations for the 2021 Stirling Awards. What better way to spread yuletide cheer than nominating your favorite user, timeline, or AH content for our community's most prestigious commendation.
Nominations will close around midnight on January 1 (GMT). Voting will open a bit after that.
It's that time already: time to recognize our best content from the past year. Nominations are open through the end of the month. Voting will be open January 1-26.
So yes. Things look different now. If you didn't see the link, this is what happened:
As that page explains, this all came down from the Fandom company. They didn't consult or otherwise engage with our community to discuss the changes, as far as I know.
Beyond the process, the content of the changes has caused some difficulties. Special:WikiActivity is gone; all that's left is the older and less user-friendly page, Special:RecentChanges. Parts of our Main Page were also displaying incorrectly, so I assume there are other things here and there that need fixing. If you see something that's not displaying right, please fix it, or ask someone who can.
As always, let us band together to support one another in these trying times.
You can start by going to vote for some Stirling Awards.
Voting for the 2020 Stirling Awards, honoring (belatedly) Wiki content from 2018-19, is open through the 25 of October. Come and help recognize our community's best work!
Nominations for the 2020 Stirling Awards are open through the end of the month. These awards are (belatedly) being held to recognize the best content that our wiki offered in 2019. Voting will start on October 1.
Well team, it looks like the Fandom people have finally replaced our old Forum with the new Discussions. They told us this was coming literally four years ago, and that post explains why the change. I personally find this format much more inviting, and I see some signs that others have the same impression - since the change, people have finally responded to some old posts that were made days or weeks ago. So I see this as a good change.
And of course, we can keep on discussing things on our Discord, as well as on user and article Talk Pages. (Chat also exists for now, but not forever; hardly anyone uses it now, anyway.)
Hi everyone! In the interest of getting an idea of demographics, as well as users' opinions on the wiki, the TSPTF and other stuff, I've put together a short survey that it would be useful for everyone to fill out. It shouldn't take too long, and you don't need to answer every question. If you've just joined, a couple of the questions might not apply to you, but that's alright just miss them out.
The results will be revealed at a later date when I feel we have enough responses, and the information will be used to perhaps make some changes here that could get this place a little more bustling and productive. Thanks in advance for your time!

I am posting this message since you have quite a few real-world maps created using the Wikia Maps feature. As you may know, the Wikia Maps extension is no longer actively supported.
Recently real-world maps stopped displaying properly (example) and very soon we’ll be running a script to remove those from all article pages, and eventually delete the maps altogether from the database.
I have enabled the MediaWiki Maps extension on this community, which is more well-suited to create real world maps. You can read about how the extension works at Help:Maps and get started creating maps at Special:MapEditor.
Please let us know if you have questions about this Maps extension. Thanks!
