Hello Ohmyn0 , Charlie from Fandom here with more good news to bring you! We announced the other day the official Fandom Discord server! You can join here and see the blog post for more information here. The Discord server was made to give you and your communities more support on Fandom so we hope to see you there!
Hey Ohmyn0! My name is HighJewElfKing, and I'm the Fandom Wiki Manager for Arrested Development Wiki. My job is to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff. If you ever got a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, etc., please contact me on my message wall and I'll do my best to help you out! :)
Hullo, long time no see! (My fault, really. If only I lived in the US...)
I've just enabled a new feature on this wiki: automatic draft saving in the classic editor! We are looking to roll this out across the site in the near future, but want to stress test it first and get feedback.
Essentially, this tool autosaves your planned changes every few seconds, so if your browser crashes or you accidentally close the tab, reopening the editor will bring you back to the same place!
You will have the option to discard the draft, and drafts are automatically discarded when you save your changes.
If you run into any problems with it, could you send a note in to Special:Contact/bug so that we can take a look!
Edit: well, it seems to be being slow at turning on. Should turn up soon though!
George! All is well, hope you are doing great too!
I love the new drafts feature, it's great. It'd be nice if there was a "saving" or "last saved N seconds" ago indicator like Google docs has, or a button to manually save a draft in cases where I need to take a break during my edit.
Question: is this stored via browser, or via user?
Honestly, I stopped watching after the third episode because I thought Season 4 was amazing the way it was and it doesn't feel right to watch it in chronological order... Hence why I haven't made any screencaps or anything :?
Hi Ohmyn0; I'm Amanda with FANDOM's community development team! I'm reaching out to you to see if you are interested in a wiki update. I'd like to edit the mobile main page, add a character portal to the main page, and add a "Welcome to" message to the top of the wiki. I also wanted to see if you were interested in turning on Discussions.
In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly, and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. You can read more about Discussions here.
For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.
If you have some concerns, Discussions and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.
Let me know what you think, and if you want to proceed I can get the ball rolling.
Hello, Ohmyn0 has been away for a while. I'm another admin here on the AD wikia :)
- I didn't realise this wikia doesn't have portal pages until you mentioned it, I'll be working on creating those in the next few weeks
- We mainly use the forums for discussions, it's our way of keeping things neat and organised
- Can you please give us a preview of what you are thinking of doing to the mobile wikia and we can talk about this further
Sorry for being so specific - we've put a lot of time into making this wikia as efficient as possible, I hope you understand :)
No worries! I totally understand. Nice character portal btw. After looking at your mobile main page, I think we can leave it as is. However, closer to the new seasons release I'd like to update it then if possible. Just with new information as it becomes available. So no to enabling Discussions? They can exist side by side with forums. Also, you can organize everything by category. Check out the Westworld wiki and see how they utilize Discussions.
Hi, sorry I've been working on the Scandal Wiki - yes I had a chance to look at them and I honestly don't like the look of discussions but again, I'm not the only admin here, if Ohmyn0 comes back I will ask him what he thinks about it. But for now we'll leave the wiki as it is :)
