Interactive Maps for everyone!

You get a Map, and you get a Map, and you a Map!

Hey everyone! Fandom recently announced that Interactive Maps are live on the platform. With this feature, communities can design their own interactive maps, allowing you to place pins on an image that will lead to wiki articles when clicked on.

Interactive Maps are available to all communities, accessible from the the "Explore" menu on the local navigation, or by visiting Special:AllMaps directly in the url. Map creation and editing is currently limited to those with the user right editinteractivemap, which is automatically given to administrators and Fandom Staff, and they can make anyone a "map-tester".

You can get very creative with Maps, from creating Maps of the world, to indicating the pa…

Global Wiki Rules and Blocking policy updates

Hey everyone!

About a year after the introduction of the global "Wiki Rules and Blocking Policy", which was created to benefit to overall health of wiki communities, this policy is getting an update based on user feedback and request for more clarity and examples. The changes to the global policy will go into effect on April 4th, 2022. This is the perfect time to come together as a community and review whether or not your wiki is in compliance with the new requirements!

  • 1 The new policy
    • 1.1 What changed?
  • 2 Got questions?
  • 3 Easy links

  • Rules for your wikis must be defined and easily accessible. This can include putting a link to the rules page on the wiki’s main page or in the top navigation.
  • Rules must include guidelines regarding wiki formatting, how …

Fandom's plans for the first quarter of 2022

Hey all, first time reaching out to you all in the new year, so I first of all want to start off with the sincere hope that 2022 has been treating you all better than the previous years have. Continue to stay safe!

Secondly, I wanted to share a glimpse of the plans Fandom has in store for the first months of the new year. Brandon, the VP of Community at Fandom, shared a more elaborate blog about it, which you can read here, but this would be the overview:

Interactive Maps

  • In 2021, we released an Interactive Maps alpha to 20 communities.
  • Feedback from the Map testers was invaluable to determining what tools to build into the feature next.
  • After a pause for the last few months of the year, development has once again kicked off on Interactive Maps…

The Downstream - Friday, September 10 at 11am EST

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:

The FandomDesktop opt-in is now LIVE

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…

FandomDesktop: deeper look into the new navigation

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…

FandomDesktop introduction and feedback

Hey all! I'm currently gathering feedback regarding the upcoming change to the desktop skin, called FandomDesktop, to help me understand any of the concerns and issues this community may face due to this change, so they can be properly addressed during testing and before we get to rollout. The change is introduced at large in this staff blog, which I advise everyone to read if you haven't already.

Some notable points:

  • Light and Dark modes - A wiki can basically have two theme options, and users can pick their preference. Admins will be able to style both in ThemeDesigner.
  • Fluid width - The content area can be expanded, and the right rail can also be collapsed, for a wider article page. This too will be user preference.
  • Global navigation - Instea…

Bug smashing efforts

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 …

Bored... Help me

I'm so bored I decided to do this blog. If you can't tell by my username I love Ruby Rose. She is my idol and a role model to LGBTQ people everywhere. I also just love the number two. I hate the fact that people didn't like her in Batwoman. I know everyone is allowed to their own opinion and have the freedom to speak their mind. I'm just saying that I thought she did amazing and was totally bummed when I heard she wasn't coming back for a second season. (I wish Javicia Leslie the best of luck!) At first, she was going to take some time away to let her injuries heal but when Covid struck she decided not to risk it which was a smart move on her part. Too many people have died.

Season 6 Predictions

Hey! I just wanted to make a post about my predictions for season 6 and how I think it might play out. Disclaimer: this is entirely based on speculations, I'm not claiming anything as fact.

So after rewatching the s5 finale multiple times, I came to the following conclusion: season 6 will be a split narrative between 3 or 4 prisons, told through bottle episodes (each prison is featured through a rotation, so very few episodes will have all 3 or 4 prisons shown at once). That's just my guess story-telling wise (kinda of like The Walking Dead's s7 format with all of the separate community-based episodes). I'm not entirely a fan of bottle episodes, but given how large this cast is (I counted 44 named inmates during the finale, plus Sophia and …

Protagonists Per Season

So something I've noticed every season is that a supporting cast character suddenly becomes a protagonist. Here's what I've noticed.

  • 1 Season 1
    • 1.1 Piper and Alex
  • 2 Season 2
    • 2.1 Taystee and Vee
  • 3 Season 3
    • 3.1 Norma and...well just Norma I guess.
  • 4 Season 4
    • 4.1 Maria and Poussey
  • 5 Predictions for Season 5?
    • 5.1 Daya

Obviously Piper and Alex will be the main characters to appear in the first season. They introduce the storyline and Piper's backstory.

Taystee and Vee had most of the scenes in season 2. I think their storyline was well thought out and very clever and emotional.

Norma had a good role/spotlight in season 3, considering the base of the season to be on faith, it was a good idea to show this and that anything is possible in prison.

This time the two main p…

Who's responsible for Poussey's death

As most of us might know, we lost Poussey in Season Four. And we're unsure who's faut it is. So cast your votes down below!

Who's repsponsible for Poussey's death? Taystee, she should have done something rather than shout 'P!'! Bayley, he was on top of her and should have moved! Suzanne, she was the reason Poussey got on the floor! Blanca, she started the riot! Piper, she joined the riot! Big Boo, she made everyone else do it! Brook, she distracted Poussey! Poussey, she shouldn't have got involved! Piscatella, he ordered the CO's to start and ordered Bayley to stop Suzanne! Red, she's the reason the riot started!

New Appearances Feature

So, I didn't really like how our current appearance templates work but I didn't know what to do about it. While I was browsing our unused templates, I noticed there was the scroll template which I've seen before on other wikis. I think that instead of the current appearance template we have on most pages, we should replace it with the scroll template.

Here is an example of the old template:
Big Boo.

Here is an example of the new template:
Wanda Bell.

I think I'm just going to convert all of the current templates to the scroll template because it will look better. However, I'm not really sure what to do about characters with only a few appearances. I want to indicate which episodes they appeared in, but with the scroll template, the amount of sp…

Who knows this figurant?

Hey there!

I recently started with oitnb and I totally love it!

I was watching episode 2, season 1, however, when I saw Alex chatting with a girl in the background in the scene where Piper talks to Larry.

The girl looks quite young, she has red hair and she talks and laughs with Alex during the scene (See the picture). When it's time for Piper to say Larry goodbye, she sees Alex hugging the figurant.

The thing is, that figurant looks awfully familiar and I just can't remember where/when I've seen that girl before. I tried googling her, searching her on IMDB, but nothing worked, I can't find the girl!

So, if you know anything about her or have an idea where I could find some information, please contact me, because these niggling thoughts have be…

You can't have an Orange is the New Black party without some jalapeño dish because of Piper's trick with mashing up jalapeños in her mouth to make a back rub for Red. Piper would have been starved out if she didn't come up with this quick trick!

Season 2 Trailer Drops!

Welcome back, my friends, to the show that... well... ends the same day it begins... It's sort of a blessing and a curse loving a show that releases entire seasons at the same time. On the one hand, don't you hate waiting for a season premiere, only to have it be a complete tease torturing you until the next week's episode? With OitNB we are able to decide for ourselves whether to marathon the whole thing, or pace ourselves to make it last. But on the other hand, lets be real, who here has that kind of restraint?? Not I, for one, and this means burning through the entire season immediately - which makes for a longer wait until the next. :::sigh::: Well, regardless of the inevitable wait after this season hits the 'flix, here is our first real…

So I was rather surprised and disappointed to read that Laura Prepon (who plays Alex Vause) will not be returning to the series full-time. She is set to film a few episodes that will close up her character's story.

I'm sure the writer will be able to write around this very well, but I have to say I'm curious how "Piper and Alex" will play out.
